We are living in a very serious time in history. How much do you see? Study the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s words–very deep or clearer!
I on October 18, 1997 wrote an article for The Final Call. It was Volume 17 Number 3. If you see my words are different in that article, somebody changed them. Why?
I wrote, on that date:
“How can we claim to love the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and yet not love Minister Farrakhan? Aside from the lovable qualities in his make up, just look at what he has done to lift and perpetuate the name and works of his teacher, whom you claim you love?
“Further, it is so unreasonable to think Minister Farrakhan is not backed by Allah, even if you still think that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead. But now, after the more-than-a-vision experience of Minister Farrakhan and with all of the overwhelming proof of its reality, how can you still claim that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead?
“I have met some who have a need in them to continue to believe that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is dead. Why?
“Forty years ago (from the date of this writing) the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: ‘You remind me of David.’ In my view, he was saying, ‘You remind me of myself.’
“This statement is so very rich with meaning that could easily fill a book!
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told Minister Farrakhan, before he departed to Master Fard Muhammad, in 1975, that the same power Who was with him would be with him (Minister Farrakhan). Then, he added, ‘In fact, Brother, there will be two backing you up, Allah and myself.’
“I hope and pray Allah that by the time this particular set of articles are done–be it the will of Allah–that Minister Farrakhan becomes clearer for those who don’t see him and be understood. Let us go deeper into ‘context.’
“ ‘For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. ‘ ” Isaiah 65:17
“ ‘For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.’ ” Isaiah 66:22
“ ‘As We began the creation, We shall reproduce it. A promise (binding) on Us. We shall bring it about. ‘ ” (Holy Quran 21:104)
“ ‘And He it is, Who originates the creation, then reproduces it, and it is very easy to Him. And His is the most exalted state in the heavens and the earth; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.’ ” (Holy Quran 30:27)
“Is this the time when these words of prophecy are being fulfilled? If so, has He already started this process, or is He yet to begin it?
“What is it about the people and about the universe, that He is going to thoroughly change them and everything else? What is He to use to bring about such thoroughgoing change that the old will be forgotten?
“The position of Minister Farrakhan and those truly with him, is that the entire universe is now undergoing a change, for the better, even though it is so subtle we don’t see it on the physical level at present. However, a few facts, in the physical realm are evident.
“What are these few ‘facts?’ Well, I start with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Farrakhan and the changes taking place through Black America, Native Americans, etc.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught and thoroughly explained the truth of this matter, of the recreation of the people and of the universe. He taught us that Allah has already begun this process. Furthermore, there is no power to prevent Master Fard Muhammad from completing what He has begun.
“The words of the following prophecy has already been fulfilled, up to a point. ‘And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.’ ”(Isaiah 51:16 )
“If the ‘I’ here, is Master Fard Muhammad, then the ‘thy’ or ‘you’ (in more modern translations of the Bible) into whose mouth, He was to put his words (or teach) refers to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, then that process began in September, 1931.
“Look at the words: ‘… I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand … .’ He promises to protect His servant. The Holy Quran teaches the same.
“What is His reason for putting His words into His servant’s mouth and protecting him? He is beginning to “make all things” new. So, it was essential that He began His work by educating His servant Himself and by protecting him.
“Where is Minister Farrakhan in all of this? I am coming to my Brother. More than a hint is given, however, in the history of Aaron’s relation to Moses, as well as what I’ve touched very lightly about Minister Farrakhan’s teacher’s words to him that he reminded him of David.
“Now, what has been covered thus far is absolutely critical to our understanding of the context in which Minister Farrakhan works, which we cannot really understand him on the level God desires.
“It is written: ‘Behold, I will do a new thing … I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.’ (Isaiah 43:19)
“Is Master Fard Muhammad the ‘I’ Who has produced this brand new way and is America the wilderness mentioned here? Yes. How can this be ultimately proven? Easy. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad already proved this truth. Minister Farrakhan has confirmed this.
“Consider this: How did Moses prove that he met with God, when there was no one with him to witness that fact? How does this bear on Master Fard Muhammad coming under disguise; disclosing His real identity only to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad?
“The prophets, and Jesus too, taught that the Kingdom–the long awaited universal rule of God Almighty–begins first in the hearts of a certain people. So, at first there is no physical evidence of the Kingdom having come, except to the extent that the believers make those changes which are written they would make, when the light of God’s truth “strikes” them, or enters their minds and hearts.
“That people through whom God would generate the kingdom were not alive back then, 2,000 years ago. The real people, mentioned in the ninth chapter of Isaiah, on whom this light would one day shine, and who afterwards would rejoice, in the land wherein they were made slaves, are the ones called ‘dead,’ ‘no people,’ ‘prodigal son,’ the ‘lost sheep,’ the ‘dry bones,’ etc. No people 2,000 years ago fit these descriptions!
1Peter 2:10 contains a prophecy of a future people who ‘… in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.’
“These words were written around 2,000 years ago, by a mixture of those who knew that this really referred to a future people (us), with those who were mistaken about the people (of 2,000 years ago) about whom they thought they were writing.
“This verse–as is most of the New Testament–is based on prophecy contained in what is called the Old Testament. Such prophecies were originally about a people called ‘no people’ whom God would raise from spiritual death, at the end of the world of those who killed them. These people (us) would be reduced by others to as near nothing as human beings could be reduced.
“These people (us) called the ‘dead’ did not exist 2,000 years ago. They were yet to be mentally murdered and produced as the ‘dead.’ This process started in 1555, when the slave trader (Sir John Hawkins) began bringing the first boat load of us to this land. That ship was named ‘Jesus.’
“Again, here in America is where we, the ‘dead,’ were made. And it is from here (the North corner of Solomon’s Temple) where we are now rising from spiritual death. Think back on The Million Man March! That was a clear sign–divinely worked through Minister Farrakhan–that the resurrection is taking place.
“Two thousand years ago, Paul stated: ‘Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17) ‘The new creatures’ were not produced in Paul’s time. The Paul, here, is a sign of Minister Farrakhan, who, in conjunction with God and His Christ, is producing the ‘new creatures’ in Christ!
“Black people, who have been ‘dead’ now are becoming a new people as we really and more fully accept Christ and the gospel of life. (See Our Saviour Has Arrived, page 114.)
“Now the following verse is being fulfilled in us as ‘we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.’ II Peter 3:13
“The theologians teach (claim) that at the end of the century in which Jesus, Paul and others did their work, the book of Revelation was produced. Most of them also teach that most of that book is prophecy of the last days; which is now.
“One prophecy teaches that, ‘And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.’ Revelation 21:5
