CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) – The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered words of warning to spiritual leaders and offered a healing for humanity in a message delivered at the American Clergy Leadership Conference’s prayer breakfast here May 17.
Reflecting on the deadly weather that has struck America over the past year, the Minister said he has a duty from God to warn of that which is to come.
“It doesn’t make me feel good to tell America what is coming. It doesn’t make me feel good to know that death and destruction has entered America and most of us are not prepared for what God is bringing down. You can pray for America, that’s good, but let me tell you something—America is almost past praying for and if the government of America under President Obama does not repent, you’re living in a house that soon will be no more.”
Addressing over 500 spiritual leaders on Chicago’s South Side at Life Center Church of God in Christ led by Rev. T.L. Barrett Jr., the Minister encouraged the clergymen to work for unity and become better servants of God and exponents of His Will.
“God is not the author of confusion; he is the author of peace. He does not have many religions, he only has one,” said Min. Farrakhan. “This division among the people of God is abhorrent in His eyes, that we would split up religion into sects and parties each one vying with the other due to envy and jealousy. But God is one, his truth is one and his people will be one.”
The Minister said that the people of the Earth are no longer children of God and His Christ, but the product of slave masters who need reformation and transformation in order to be acceptable to God. Minister Farrakhan said the people have gone astray because many of the spiritual leaders–referred to as watchmen in the scriptures–have gone astray. In this dangerous time of judgment many pastors appear to be more concerned with being popular, building mega churches and striving for nearness to political officials, than preaching God’s word, he said.
“When you are called to the ministry, you are not called to the ministry to preach a gospel of tolerance with wickedness. When you are called to Jesus Christ, you are not called to break bread with power for some benefit from power that is evil. You are called by God to his Christ to preach an unadulterated Gospel that does not tickle the ears of the wicked or the weak or the powerful. You must warn them and be warned yourself,” said Min. Farrakhan. “The duty of a pastor is not just raising money and building fine churches, the duty of a pastor is to again make people in the image and likeness of God through Jesus Christ.”
“You can’t pray for all, because all are not going to make it. You can pray for the governor, you can pray for the mayor, you can pray for the president, its nice, but hell you better warn the governor, warn the president, warn the mayor that God’s judgment has entered into America and the world! God doesn’t want everybody in His Kingdom! You’ve got to make a decision whether you want to be there!” he said.
Minister Farrakhan said many pastors are afraid to speak out against homosexuality and lesbianism. Many pastors accept this, but it is not accepted by God.
“This is a world that has made evil fair-seeming and this is because Satan is the master of this world and he is the arch deceiver of humanity,” said Min. Farrakhan.
The enemy will never truly lead the people to Jesus because that would be leading people to the one who will end their rule, and any preacher sent by the enemy will agree with Satan’s world.
The present world is filled with hatred, division, strife, envy, enmity and jealousy, said the Minister. If the scripture says God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, it was not for this world we are living in, and that many appear to love. Such is the way in America, the modern day Babylon, he said.
“What world is God in love with that He would give His son? Is it this one?” Minister Farrakhan asked. This world is a world of sin, a world of rebellion to God and whatever God says ‘thou shalt not do,’ man says ‘its all right’ and makes it fair seeming. In America, all of God’s laws are ignored regularly he noted. “Satan is winning the battle for the hearts and minds of men and women,” the Minister said.
“What kind of world are you living in? Thieves stole America! Thou shalt not steal! Thieves killed the original inhabitants of America! Thou shalt not kill! Thieves took you out of Africa and made you a slave and coveted the wealth of Africa! Thou shalt not covet! You love this world? You’re dead in it,” said Min. Farrakhan.
The Minister mentioned that he and the Nation of Islam enjoyed a good working relationship with former Mayor of Chicago Richard M. Daley and former Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis as the Nation of Islam effectively reduced crime in some of Chicago’s worst areas. In a letter written to recently sworn in Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emmanuel, the Minister offered the help of the Nation of Islam. Though invited, Mayor Emmanuel was unable to attend the breakfast. 20th Ward Alderman Willie Cochran was present as his representative and gave a donation on his behalf.
“I want to offer you my hand and the hand of the Nation of Islam to help in whatever way we can to lessen crime and violence in this city, and I ask for nothing in return but that this city be run well and peacefully; and I pray that God will give you the wisdom and the strength and the guidance to make your tenure in office successful,” said Min. Farrakhan sharing the contents of a letter sent to the new mayor.
“This is coming from a so-called anti-Semitic person. I don’t hate Jewish people but I do hate injustice and evil.” Referring to Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, the Minister said it is his job to point out the deceivers of the world, which is why he is hated by those whose hidden influence is not fully known.
“Let me tell you something about divine revelation when you get it. That’s a privilege. But when God confers on you knowledge, that knowledge can either be used for the good of his will or for satisfaction of your own desires against his will. So those of us who receive divine revelation, that’s a trial for you and some Jews are very good, and there are others that use the wisdom and power that they have for wickedness and you won’t point it out because they pay you. They hate Farrakhan because I am pointing out the wicked ones and the wickedness that they do that is deceiving you and the government and the world. That’s my job from God! And I will not shirk my duty to open your eyes to deceit and a deceiver.”
Tools and technology to heal
Minister Farrakhan discussed the damaged minds and spirits of the members of the human family living in a world dripping with sin. Each day, being surrounded by pain, upset and abuse has rendered many powerless to change their conditions, and the Minister discussed the interaction between the Nation of Islam and the Church of Scientology, saying that he found something in the study of L. Ron Hubbard’s technology of auditing that he believed could be of use to the Nation of Islam to prepare better servants and saviours of the people by helping to clear up their minds and lives.
Close to 700 members of the Nation of Islam have become Certified Hubbard Dianetics Auditors and auditing sessions are held in many mosques and study groups across America.
The Minister brought to the stage Student Captain Oliver Muhammad, his wife Sister Deidre and their two daughters from Atlanta, Georgia, to share their testimonies regarding the healing technology of auditing.
Sister Deidre shared a harrowing tale of having been raped and through auditing conducted by her oldest daughter–also a certified auditor, she has been able to overcome pain she carried with her for years.
“My daughter is my auditor and she is my first born, and she has relieved so much pain from me, not only one rape, but several rapes that I have experienced that my daughter has taken the pain and relieved it and erased it from me,” said Sis. Deidre holding back tears. “To give someone life, for her to give me life again is beyond words,” she added.
Brother Oliver described how he experienced the death of his brother and his mother back to back. His family, while still grieving over the loss of his brother, then hearing of his mother, fell into a state of inconsolable sorrow. Immediately he set up chairs and audited his wife and his daughters bringing them out of the state of anguish within hours of the event. The technology works, said Sis. Deidre and Bro. Oliver.
“With this right here, anything that has ever happened to you in your life that has caused any type of discomfort or pain can be removed, if you will sit down and do this,” said Bro. Oliver.
Reverend Alfreddie Johnson of the World Literacy Crusade and the Church of Scientology has worked closely with the National of Islam as many members have journeyed into the study of Dianetics.
Rev. Johnson, a Baptist minister, told The Final Call with Minister Farrakhan’s introduction of the technology of auditing to the spiritual leaders present, and by extension, their congregations, a “galactic historical precedent has been set” and the Nation of Islam will be the conduit that will transfer this technology to the world.
“Minister Louis Farrakhan is God’s man on the scene. To me he’s the undisputed heavyweight champion to all people and a voice of truth,” said Rev. Johnson.
Charlotte Lewis said she respected Minister Farrakhan as a Black leader, but hearing him today allowed her to see him better as a spiritual leader.
“Seeing him personally has given me much more respect for him as a minister and I appreciate his work and it has been inspirational to me in my life in what he has said. I just enjoyed it,” Ms. Lewis told The Final Call.
Archbishop George Augustus Stallings, Jr., national president of the American Clergy Leadership Conference, said he admires Minister Farrakhan because he leads by example, and is a man of principle, at a time when many spiritual leaders sacrifice principle for popularity.
“The sterling quality that I appreciate most about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is that he is uncompromising when it comes to spiritual principles and he does not base his message on what will tickle the ear or what is popular to receive an applause,” Archbishop Stallings told The Final Call. “What is more important to him is principle rather than power. It is service rather than being served. And it is his ability to challenge all of us to be the watchmen and the watchwomen that we accepted the call to be when we were ordained and yet maybe have fallen by the wayside.”
