I’m still commenting on the event that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan produced in Washington, DC. I’m quoting a book I wrote titled This Is The One.
What happened when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad departed from us in 1975 and what happened to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan? “The Honorable Elijah Muhammad did not accidentally choose Minister Farrakhan to sit in his seat in his absence. At a certain point, he knew exactly how this great Brother fits into the divine scheme of things that is wisely laid out in the Bible and the Holy Qur’an. There are several Brothers and Sisters (most of whom were officials of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad) who heard of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad designate our brother, well, to make it short for now, to sit in his seat in his absence, in his home. The public needs to know this.
If you admit that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was no fool–and he most certainly was/is not–then you are forced to acknowledge that many wise considerations went into his choice of Minister Farrakhan as his National Representative. It would give the public greater insight to know the thinking and preparation that God and His Apostle utilized in producing Minister Farrakhan for his extraordinary work.
It is very instructive to study the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad–used in front of witnesses– as he informed the Honorable Louis Farrakhan of his future work, to be done during his absence before his return.
However, it doesn’t take a genius to grasp the fact that in no way could the Honorable Louis Farrakhan do what he has done these past 15 plus years, if he had not been; a) singled out by Master Fard Muhammad, and b) shown to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, c) prepared, and d) commissioned, and even now, guided to call forth the Black man and woman to the task of nation building.
I wrote an article in the January Beneficiaries of God’s Mercy and Wise Plan 27, 1992 issue of the Final Call newspaper titled, “God’s grace revealed.” The subtitle given editorially was “Recent events in Minister’s life show Supreme Being’s mercy.” I wrote, in part: “‘This is the fifth in a series of articles about the huge events of October 7th and the 13th, of this year, which revolved around glorious acts of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan.
It is written that one day God said to Moses that He was going to wipe out–kill–all of the people whom He commissioned Moses to teach and lead. He told Moses he would make a greater nation out of him. Moses begged God not to do so. Moreover, he humbly said to his Lord that if He would not forgive His people, then he asked his God to blot him off from the book of life.
Moses loved his God and God’s people with an intensity that was of the same quality of the love in the same God Who produced him to save His people. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad demonstrated this same kind of love, and then some, from 1931 right through the time that he departed, in 1975, and even up to this very moment.
At this point, I repeated a point I’ve made in another article, with significant additions. It was: One day, nearly 60 years ago– maybe 1932–Master Fard Muhammad said to his servant, “Come on Karriem. We got about all we’re going to get.” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, instantly, humbly and tearfully responded, “Master, if you destroy them, destroy me.” (He replaced His servant’s name, first with Karriem and later with the name Muhammad.)
When the people rebelled against their God, Moses and Aaron fell on their faces and begged God for mercy for such foolish people.
Later, when God reacted to continued rebellion of the people, who feared Pharaoh and his hosts, (as they ought to have feared God), and when God threatened to destroy His people, it was Moses and Aaron who fell on their faces and begged God to exercise extraordinary mercy and save their people–and the others who would be saved.
This connects to the fact that Master Fard Muhammad came, in part, to produce the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to save us–and others who would be saved.
Now, included in His purpose for coming, was to produce the Honorable Louis Farrakhan for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that he (the Christ) may use him (the Minister) to get all of His people.
The Bible records that Paul went through a period of intense pain, sorrow and grief, or depression, over the rebellious condition of the Jews and their unwillingness to accept–or properly accept–him whom God produced to save them. So did Minister Farrakhan pass through such an intense experience, a few years ago. Out of that came the study guides God ordered through him.
In an article that I wrote in 1988, I mentioned the fact that God only allows intercession under specific conditions or circumstances. He only permits intercession through certain ones. And even then they must be prepared by Him.
This is highly relevant to the specific series of events (that took place earlier this year culminating October 7th) initiated by the subtle, yet extremely significant coactions or interplay of actions and reactions between Allah and His Christ, on the one hand, and Minister Farrakhan on the other.
Minister Farrakhan could not trace step by step, the events of his life (this year) which led to his prayer for us on October 7th and that which he also spoke on the 13th. His deep consideration for his audience and time limitations simply made it inappropriate for him to go as deep as he wished.
We all need to learn those details because we have in these events principles that help us to understand how God expands the breasts, or increases the capacity of the head and heart of such noble human beings, whom He would guide and permit (and how He involves Himself in the preparation of such noble souls) to serve as intercessors for us.
In other words not only are there pockets of time, during which God allows intercession–and this is something very special–there is, what I will here briefly call, a special kind of mutual influence between the Lord God Almighty and a servant of His, for the benefit of others.
We are witnesses and beneficiaries of such unusual experiences in the life of God, His Christ, and Minister Farrakhan. Remember, he called on God to enter our persons, in response to his prayer, to–among other things–help us to become more aware of Allah’s reality and intense love for each one of us, and His mercy for all.
What should be our reaction? Gratitude or ingratitude? Arrogance or deeper humility? Fault finding and slander or soul searching and the spirit of forgiveness? A flinging aside of time for prayer to Allah and the study of His word? Increased stinginess and a greater measure of selfishness or an increase of acts of charity and greater sacrifices in behalf of God’s truth? Let us consider how such cases in America’s judicial system that embody and clarify such concepts as amnesty, pardons, clemency, etc., that grows directly out of the lives of human beings.
And let us look at and reflect on incidents in the lives of some of God’s prophets, who performed certain acts which serve as precedents for what Minister Farrakhan did for us–and others–on October 7th, which to the best of our knowledge was the birth date of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.”
