I’m looking forward to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Holy Day of Atonement address in Philadelphia, what They put in his heart of his assignment, 100 percent that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave him.
Years ago, I wrote this for The Final Call newspaper and put it in context, and then I wrote it for a book dated November 11, 1983. Other people destroyed the book. I will not explain this.
“President Reagan needs a divine advisor. There are several instances in the Bible where the king, or ruler, of a land was in deep trouble. He called on his advisors. Among the most influential were the spiritual, or religious, advisors. The advice that they gave did not solve the problems of the king nor his kingdom, however.
“In every instance, in the Bible, where injustice, and wickedness, in general, reached a certain level, God determined that destruction was their due. However, in every such situation God provided a Warner before He brought down His wrath.
“His mercy takes precedence over His ability to kill. But kill He has and kill He will. Yes, God kills. However, He does so only as a last resort and always in service of His love.
“The religious system of the lands where the kings were in trouble, according to the scriptures, was at the root of the troubles in the land. This is why the religious advisor’s advice was inadequate. The quality of their sight was really not much better than those they advised. This is like the doctors who help patients they don’t outlive.
“So it is today in America. The President needs to turn away from the inadequate advice of those who represent the religious system that is the main factor in the problem that he and the citizens of this land face. But will he?
“Pharaoh did not want to, until after the tenth plague, to give in to God, even though there were times before this particular plague, when he thought about heeding the call of Moses and Aaron. There was another Pharaoh who acted wiser.
“The religious system of America contains good. It also contains much evil. Its roots cannot be found in the universal order of things.
“In the Name of Allah and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, I humbly state that the man, over and above the religious scientists (and all others who advise the President), who is in the best position to advise the President and America, is Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“God and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad put Minister Farrakhan in this position, at this time, as a mercy and the way out of the predicament that you are in.
“America is in one hell of a position. It is not Russia, Mr. President; it is God Who has put America in this situation.
“There are serious defects in your spiritual views. These views are not altogether true. You need to do as the ruler did by Joseph, as recorded in the book of Genesis.
“The king could not find a way out of his problems until he sent for Joseph, who was in jail. You need to read the book of Daniel. Look at the problems of that king. All of his advisors failed him. Daniel did not. The book of Acts closes with Paul in “jail.”
“The United States Government, over which the President presides, has all of the resources necessary to carefully study and weigh the history, mission, teachings, works and effects of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan against the contents of the Bible and the Holy Qur’an. You have the brains of many learned men and women. Use them. Be not proud. There is still time. But it is quickly running out BUT …
“The Pope does not want Armageddon. But, remember, it is a war, which involves God Himself.
“In closing, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad once said to us, “Pray not for that day, for it will catch many of our loved ones lagging behind.”
“The 16th chapter of Revelation describes part of the execution of the judgment of the Living God at the end of the world. His judgments are declared to be true and just. This frightening scene, written of in the past, is being fulfilled in the present.
“God is the One Who plagues men and women with sores, terrible scorching heat, darkness and gnawing pain, as described in the last book of the Bible. God’s purpose, with these plagues, is to help people to repent; to change them from evil to good. But, according to chapter 16 of this book, they refused to repent. Further, they blaspheme the Name of God. They defied Him until their last breath.
“Two people come under these plagues. One group are those who have the mark of the beast and they worship its statue. The other people–the producers of the mark– are also punished because they “ …poured out the blood of saints and prophets.”
“This chapter includes a brief picture of God’s enemies from another angle. The dragon, the beast and the false prophet move the rulers of the world to war against God. They gather at a place called Armageddon.
“Throughout the Bible, this is a place where decisive battles of a special nature, were fought. I’ll have to return to this “place” next week. For now I’ll only state that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke about this openly, clearly and for several years. The government knows all about it. I cannot say how much each official in each administration knows. In any case, it is all there.
“If Armageddon is the word in Hebrew (transliterated, of course), what does this word mean in English? Why do those high up in the West refer to war with Russia as Armageddon? Neither side can do all the things the Bible says will be done in war.
“For example, the Bible states that the forces of nature will be used in that war. Neither the USA nor the USSR have power over such forces. Here is Revelation 16:17-21 on this point.
“The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘It is done!’
“Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed.
“God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
“All of this shows that none of the officials of either country, Russia nor America, nor their spiritual advisors, should be taken as the best authority about the origin, nature and outcome of this war.
“Richard Nixon is right when he writes, ‘We are at war.’ I intend to get back to Brother Akbar’s words and the words of others.
More next issue, Allah willing.
