“Have they not traveled in the land and seen what was the end of those who were before them? Mightier than these were they in strength and in fortifications in the land, but Allah destroyed them for their sins. And they had none to protect them from Allah.” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 40, verse 21
In the wake of Hurricane Jeanne’s last fall on the Southeast Coast of Florida, it was reported that a strange, eerie, green/blue light streaked across the night sky. In the background of howling winds and blinding sheets of rain, people and debris were hurled about relentlessly. The populous could hardly believe that a fourth hurricane in six weeks hit their shores, an area from West Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast to Cape Canaveral was blanketed again with widespread disaster.
Originating in the tranquil blue seas of the Caribbean, Hurricane Jeanne devastated the island and the people of Haiti, stretching her icy fingers of death and destruction everywhere. The Bahamas was sacked by hurricane winds registering 150 mph, on their way to Dade County, Miami, and Broward County, Ft. Lauderdale, with a chilling effect in her wake on the coastal areas of Florida.
So horrific were the results that the international edition of the Miami Herald reported the following words on her front page story, “Jeanne’s mighty core was expected to make landfall shortly before midnight arriving as a Category 3 hurricane, its center surrounded by 120-mph winds capable of inflicting enormous damage. That eyewall was heralded and followed by hours of whistling, howling wind and cascading rain and unrelenting apprehension. In many cases, the wind of this new curse launched debris from the previous curse airborne, creating a new generation of debris.”
In an earlier edition of the same newspaper, the danger was so real, coming in as it did on the beginning sundown celebration of the Jewish New Year of Yom Kippur, that observant Jewish people were advised to use battery- run radios and TVs to keep up with the storm warnings in their area. As you may know, many Jews do not turn on electronic devices during religious holidays or on the Sabbath, but they were advised to use good judgment.
During this same period of the hurricane tragedy, a Christian preacher was heard on television preaching to America from the Book of Revelation, warning her that just as Egypt was visited with Divine Plagues, so was America fulfilling these prophesies in this modern day. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad often warned us that many of America’s preachers and scientists would begin to preach the truth of her destructive fall as foretold in the scripture of both Bible and Holy Qur’an.
Whenever a people reach the height of wickedness, Almighty Allah (God) sends messengers and warners in their midst to remind them of their deviation from God’s Divine Path of service and devotion. The majority of the people ignore all the signs and the warnings and lapse into complete rebellion and mockery of the Divine Word until the threatened punishment overtakes them. Such were the examples of those before us.
“How many a generation We destroyed before them, then they cried when there was no longer time for escape! And they wonder that a warner from among themselves has come to them, and the disbelievers say: This is an enchanter, a liar.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 38, verses 3,4
Off the coastal waters of one of the islands of the Bahamas lies a colossal stone, man-made structure called the Bimini Road, believed by scientific investigators to be the remnants of a causeway connected to a sunken island civilization called Atlantis. This continent was originally situated in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean that carries her name. When her advance technology reached a certain stage of development and fell into the hands of the wicked, the youth of this advanced technology triggered a counter-reaction of the elements leading to self-destruction. One can read about this legendary Greek tale written by Plato and in the psychic reading of Edgar Cayce, known as the sleeping prophet.
The final destruction of this island continent was wrought by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions with fierce, gale-like storms and tidal waves until she vanished beneath the sea in one day and night. Could this be the fate of America, holding in her hands as she does today, the greatest arsenal of weapons of mass destruction being more powerful than any other nation on earth today?
The Book of Revelation, Chapter 18, verses 8 and 10, speak of the fall and destruction of mystery Babylon in one hour and in one day when her judgment came.
“So when they saw it–a cloud advancing towards their valleys, they said: This is a cloud bringing us rain. Nay, it is that which you sought to hasten, a wind wherein is painful chastisement. Destroying everything by the command of its Lord. So at dawn naught could be seen except their dwellings. Thus do We reward the guilty people.” -Holy Quran, Surah 46, verses 24-25
