The Change of Worlds in the midst of global conflicts and war
“And We revealed to Moses, saying: Travel by night with My servants–you will be pursued. And Pharoah sent heralds into the cities (proclaiming): These are indeed a small band, And they have surely enraged us: And we are truly a vigilant multitude. So We turned them out of gardens and springs, And treasures and goodly dwellings–Even so. And We gave them as a heritage to the Children of Israel.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 26, verses 52-59
As I continue this series connected to the search of what has been identified as the legendary existence of an ancient civilization and continent called, “Atlantis,” I am reminded of a painting shown to me by the late Sister Ethel Sharrieff, the eldest daughter of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who also had a home in Nassau, Bahamas. The painting showed rapidly rising floodwaters from a sea covering beautiful, stately edifices and drowning the populace who appeared in Greek tunic-styled clothing, apparently from ancient times.
When I asked her about the significance of this painting, she told me that the Saviour, Master Fard Muhammad, gave it to her and that it depicted a period of destruction that would come to the present world.
How many of us are aware that colossal stones are visible off the coast of the island of Bimini in the Bahamas called, The Bimini Road, which is purportedly connected to the lost continent of Atlantis? They were first reported by undersea divers in 1968, believed to be the signs of Atlantis rising as foretold by Edgar Cayce, an enigmatic psychic known for giving thousands of life-readings to individuals concerning the legendary lost continent of Atlantis until his death in 1945. He predicted the rising of portions of this lost landmass that would appear in 1968 off the coast of Bimini.
In our last article on this subject, we reported the discovery of a submerged pyramid in the same area nearer to the largest island in the Bahamas near Bimini, called San Andros. We may recall that in Mr. Cayce’s diving mission, he discovered a room inside of this pyramid that contained metallic hands holding a circular crystal stone. He managed to take hold of this quartz crystal and took it with him. It was not until 1979 that it began to be displayed in various venues. Reportedly, there were many unusual psychic experiences that took place among those who examined it.
To the students of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we might begin to see parallels between our teachings and the new discoveries of ancient civilizations that have disappeared beneath the seas or buried under the sands of the deserts.
Another reflective thought that I have now perceived in this research is the possible link of Atlantis and its destruction to the world of Yakub and his experiment on the island of Pelan, or modern-day Patmos, in the Aegean Sea. The characteristics of some of the people of the leaders of the Atlantean civilization, as told by Plato in his two dialogues of “Timaeus” and “Critias,” are described as having a mentality to experiment on human beings. Some of whom were transformed into half-man, half-beast creatures. Even the dates of the final destruction of Atlantis, as given by Plato, occurred 9,000 to 10,000 years before Plato’s time.
I will share a little background knowledge about Edgar Cayce and his work during his lifetime. He is known as a clairvoyant and medical diagnostician, a seer and devoted proponent of the Bible. He is also known as the “sleeping prophet.” He was born on a farm in Hopkinsville, Kentucky on March 18, 1877. At the age of six or seven, he told his parents that he was able to see and talk to visions. He only completed a seventh-grade education, after which he had to seek his own earning.
He gave these life-readings of the Atlanteans to over 1,000 people who mentally had maintained a link to this ancient continent of Atlantis. All of them were born in America and these life-readings were given over a period of approximately 20 years prior to his death. The warning he gave concerning the Atlantean civilization is that, if we did not heed the warning of their experimental growth in technology, a similar destruction could take place in America.
In June 1954, the University of Chicago held him in high esteem when a Ph.D. candidate based his thesis on a study of Mr. Cayce’s life’s work and referred to him as a religious seer. He was also acknowledged in the children’s comic book, “House of Mystery,” the title of America’s most mysterious man.
If we piece together all of the above information, it leaves tantalizing evidence that may ultimately prove the existence of the legendary Atlantis lying in a seabed off the shores of America that may truly be on the rise. From the island of Bermuda, down the coast of Florida to the island of Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, now stretching across the coast of Cuba into the Gulf of Mexico and the coastal peninsula of Mexico’s Yucatan, may lay a mystery to be revealed.
“Then they pursued them at sunrise. So when the two hosts saw each other, the companions of Moses cried out: Surely we are overtaken. He said: By no means; surely my Lord is with me–He will guide me. Then We revealed to Moses: March on to the sea with thy staff. So it parted, and each party was like a huge mound. And there We brought near the others. And We saved Moses and those with him, all. Then We drowned the others. Surely there is a sign in this; yet most of them believe not. And surely thy Lord is the Mighty, the Merciful.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 26, verses 60-68
