I made a mistake in the previous article. I’m now placing the mistake in context that appears in the following three paragraphs.
Sister Claudette Marie Muhammad said these words in her statement, “History in the Making.” I said this, “Those words are usually used about events that are in the process of happening. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad had also given us another view of these words when he explained that there are very powerful men who wrote of history, written in advance. That was implied back in 1964. Of course he has taught much on this. There’s no reason to get into that here, in this short article. Minister Farrakhan has dealt with this. And, I am among those who had borne witness to this fact.”
In 2007, I saw that Barack Obama became a Presidential Candidate in the Democratic Party. Due to my health condition, I had not really focused on the election process until this time. That caused me to think back to 1964. I was in the audience, along with other Ministers, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was conducting that meeting. One of the things he indicated that there was an election mentioned in the scriptures. He did not specify. But he did not indicate whether or not this election (1964) was it.
(I am qualifying the above paragraph that makes it more correct. Toward the end of 2007, I was listening to a Theology of Time tape. For the first time, I took the process of the election more serious, but not deep. I recalled that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad made certain statements in 1961 and 1964 that caused me to think of this process of this election more seriously.)
“In 2008, Barack Obama became the Presidential Candidate for the Democratic Party. Due to my health condition, I had not really focused on the election process until this time. Among the other things I thought, last year, that occurred during that time period–44 years ago–the Honorable Elijah Muhammad first announced that he was setting up the 3 year Economic Program. I was in the audience, along with other Ministers, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was conducting that meeting. One of the things he indicated was that there was an election mentioned in the scriptures. He did not specify. But he did not indicate whether or not this election (1964) was it.
“He made a point that directly refers to Minister Farrakhan.”
Among the ministers, Minister Farrakhan was leading the fight against hypocrites.
“What was going on in 2008 of which I saw a few things, caused me to think about what was happening 44 years ago. It caused me to think about other things that were happening during that time, of which some were happening in the Nation of Islam. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in a certain section of his talk referred to the attacks that were put on him by hypocrites. As far as I know there were many ministers who fought them publicly. I was one of them, in the area I was teaching, but the Honorable Elijah Muhammad referred to Minister Farrakhan as the lead minister who took the lead in this fight.
“That meeting was held in October 1964. As I thought over this event, I thought if this Brother became the President Elect, in 2008 that would mark 44 years since certain significant events would have passed. Of course, that would include that meeting, in which he said very significant things. I remember them. He made a point that directly refers to Minister Farrakhan, but not by name. I intend to make this very clear, by the help of Allah.”
“Then in 2008, Barack Obama became the 44th president of America. In the eyes of many people, he is seen as the most important man on the planet. Of course others don’t see that. But, they see him as a very significant person. I see him as a very significant man. He holds a powerful position.
“I see Minister Farrakhan as a very, very significant man and he holds a very, very significant position and he represents plenty of power. To explain this requires either a very long speech or a big book. Smile.”
From This Is The One
In The Fall Of America he wrote, on page 102, with reference to us (Black folks):
“Perhaps all of you will be saved; for you are bound to submit when you see what is coming.”
On page 143, he also wrote:
“Do not think that the 144,000 prophesied of, are the only ones who will be saved.”
Now, I have said and written this before, and I’ll touch it again here, and I don’t tire of it, for I am among the beneficiaries of what I’m about to sum up.
I’ve written in The Final Call newspaper Vol. 11-20, August 24, 1992.
God told the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in 1964, that He was going to bring down the fullness of His wrath within 18-24 months of that time. He had no choice but to publish what he was told. However, he begged Allah, in prayer, for more time. Allah gave it to him. And out of that we have the Honorable Louis Farrakhan today!If that had not happened, where would we be?
I am among the grateful for the great sacrifices the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Louis Farrakhan have made for the future of our poor people.
In Surah 7 verse 142, we read of Allah appointing for Moses 30 nights and that he completed them with 10. In brief: the 30 nights were about from 1935 to 1965 and the 10 nights were about from 1965 to 1975.
Did not you read of those times when the people provoked God to anger, due to their rebellious attitude and deeds, and Moses and Aaron fell on their faces and prayed to the God for mercy and for time to work with the people?
Both the modern Moses and the modern Aaron have likewise prayed to Allah for time to get to our people, out of hearts filled with intense compassionate love. They warned of a day–a specific day–that is all but upon us, when God will punish those who reject the warnings these two have and are giving.
Have you ever noticed how often we read in scriptures that God gave Moses and Aaron this and that; and God told Moses and Aaron this and that; that God had Moses and Aaron to do this and that? Even the rebellion, mentioned in the book of Numbers 16, was against Moses and Aaron.And we read that Allah Himself specifically appointed Aaron to aid Moses in a special way (Holy Qur’an 25:35). What are we to learn from this?
I hope you will be patient with me as I make these points about Minister Farrakhan very clear and make clear why I was able to make Chicago for Saviours’ Day, because this may benefit other people health wise.
More next issue, Allah willing.
