Conversations fit for the Believers
Previous Farrakhan The Traveler Articles
Minister Farrakhan’s continued response from Vol. 27 Issue 38.
So Satan then recognizing that this is the end of his world; when the dead receive the life giving word contained in Divine Revelation, Satan must enter the equation to cause the person not to think on, not to dwell on, not to conversate on the Divine Revelation. So Satan’s job is to turn the mind away from the high thing, and turn it toward sex; turn it toward material acquisition; turn it toward low things then Satan has a chance to take that mind where he wants to take it in contravention to where God wants to take the human being.
“Ye are all gods. Children of the Most High God.” Well what is the food that Gods feed on? They don’t feed on cheap grass. They feed on the highest wisdom that is in creation. And by feeding on that They become what They feed on. And so, I remember when we first heard the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we stayed up all night long. We had no recollection of time and we had a job to go to the next morning but we were so energized because our conversation revolved around the wisdom of the Divine Revelation of God that we went to work the next day not feeling tired because the cells of our brain and the cells of our body were so energized by our focus on the Revelation of God.
“And so the highest form of communication is to speak on, ask questions about, argue over what God has revealed to His servant. Perfecting our understanding of what God reveals increases the level of energy. Hearing it, knowing it, and believing it, is one level, but understanding it and applying it, is the highest level of activity. So this is what the Believers need to do. We need to feed on Him in our hearts. We need to feed on His word in our hearts. We need to take that word as the central food to make a god. And don’t add cheap food to good food. The more you feed on the pure essence of the revealed word of God, the faster you rise into Him. Need I say more?
Jabril Muhammad: That’s it. That’s the whole article.
Minister Farrakhan: …Could only be because I fed on something that caused me to rise above their level of scholarship, not in arrogance, but the eagle sees more than a dove. The eagle sees more than a sparrow and the eagle certainly sees more than the beast and the snake. So when God reveals to a servant He gives him the wings of an eagle that he can fly high above the scholarship of the world. And this is why the scriptures says, that He will make the wisdom of this world foolishness with God. I imagine when an eagle sees a robin flying around at its level, well that looks pretty cheap to the eagle. So, most of the governments, that have aspired to greatness have always used the symbol of an eagle. But they are low flying eagles, because they were not flying on the high octane energy of Divine Revelation–
Jabril Muhammad: That’s wonderful!
Minister Farrakhan: That’s high energy of Divine Revelation.
Every time I do something like this I reflect on the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to me, when he was impressing upon me that he didn’t make me and I couldn’t understand why he would say a thing like that because I know that whatever I am it’s because of him. But he said “No. I gave you the same teaching that I gave everyone else. But only Allah could have shown you how to put the teachings together in the manner that you do. No Brother, I did not make you. Allah made you for me.”
This, is why Jabril, The New Testament and the Qur’an as well, as well as The Old Testament, you keep hearing the words in The Old Testament hearken, hearken, listen, give ear, lend me your ear, because the ear is the instrument by which the highest form of energy will be transmitted. And that’s why the company that we keep is so important to how high we rise or how low we fall.
So the Believer should not have a disbeliever for regular company. Because the disbeliever will not conversate on the same level as a Believer unless the Believer is introducing the disbeliever to the word and they begin to question, debate and talk about that word, then there’s lifting.
But when the Believer is found having fellowship with the dead, and finding comfort in such fellowship, that Believer has fallen to the lowest level, because the dead can only bury their dead and bury the living who wants to die.
From this point through the last interview you will notice that they are not placed in chronological order. Instead I attempted to place them according to subjects. This could not be done perfectly because a few of the interviews contain more than one subject. As you notice this section of the book started with Minister Farrakhan’s answer to my question regarding conversation, in addition to the reason that I gave for starting this section with that interview. I’m also expressing my hope that his beautiful and wise answer will stimulate the highest order of conversation on every subject on which we engage.
But especially regarding this book, it’s my hope that the readers of this book engage each other with the best kind of conversation concerning the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, whose person and works merit conversation on the highest level.
More next issue, Allah willing.
