In my last article, I quoted the exact words of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, when he stated:
“ ‘I heard a Christian preacher say, ‘It is your attitude that will determine your altitude.’ And if you have an improper attitude toward misfortune, you won’t get too high in the sight of God.
“ ‘So to all who may read this, study this, take the attitude of love for God. Love for Allah.
“ ‘Regardless to what He brings or allows into your life, ‘I love you Allah and I thank you, for surely, in my trial, there is good for me because I know you mean good for me. I’ll find good in it.’
“ ‘The good student will always find some good in what the master teacher is doing to them. And in the end, they will understand, that every thing that he did to them, he was their best friend and patron because he did it all for them.’ ”
I heard a brother ask a question of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that involves of the meaning of the words in Revelation chapter 5 verses 5-9. I was in the audience when he asked the question. I’m not going to state the brother’s question and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s reaction.
I intend to state this fully, as soon as I can, Allah willing. Now, what’s more important is; why I’m putting this event in my article, right now? That was in February 1957. Today is September 2010.
Many years later, I came to see that this involves Minister Farrakhan, and our reaction to this truth, that he will meet the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Maybe you were not born. But I was there, among others. Others, for good reasons, were not there.
If we are followers of Minister Farrakhan, then we should know that nobody on this planet has the wisdom or power to defeat the Supreme Being. I believe most people will accept this 100% on face value.
You probably have met some people who have spoken words to the affect that they think they can defeat the Supreme Being. I’ve met some people who give the impression that they think like this.
I’m aware that some people think or write, on some levels, that they are closer to the Supreme Being than others.
Now, we know that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said over and over again that he met the Supreme Being.
Now, this involves Minister Farrakhan’s public statement, when he announced that he heard the voice of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He also said that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad made clear to him, that he had one more thing to do before he can meet him face to face!
Anybody reading these words is faced with two big questions. It involves what is in your mind, or heart, whether he’s telling the truth or lying. But, that involves also you–all of us–100%.
The very, very, very, wicked are studying this whole situation and us to the max. That is their job. And hypocrites are with them. Later, they may change their minds.
“And the devil will say, when the matter is decided: ‘Surely Allah promised you a promised of truth, and I promised you, then failed you.
“And I had no authority over you, except that I called you and you obeyed me; so blame me not but blame yourselves. “ ‘I cannot come to your help, nor can you come to my help.’
“I deny your associating me with Allah before. Surely for the unjust is a painful chastisement. ” (Holy Qur’an chapter 14:22.)
A fighter cannot enter a ring, nor win a fight, with the wrong attitude and/or high blood pressure.
I asked Dr. Patina, could a fighter enter a fight with high blood pressure? She said “No.” I asked her why? Part of her answer is:
“In order to be able to take punches, your blood pressure has to be low.”
“A fighter has to be relaxed. A person with high blood pressure is not relaxed; they are very stiff, tense and rigid. And you will lose that fight or lose your life.”
Does this time period involve envy? Yes. The first time I heard of “envy,” was when I heard it from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the spring of 1956. He said, “A envious person is the worst kind of person because he will kill you.”
I heard those words on a tape.
I wondered over the depth of these words because many people murder for different reasons. What was/is it about envy that caused him to say those words.
“Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn … and from the evil of the envier when he envies. ( Holy Qur’an 113: 1, 5)
More next issue, Allah willing.
