I was blessed to be in a position to witness that and why the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was put in a position, in the USA, to spread the truth that came from the Supreme Being, in the person of Master Fard Muhammad; Who came to the United States of America and then He met the Honorable Elijah Muhammad who spread this truth in this country and all over this planet earth.
In my last article, I put these words:
“They cried out to the mountains and the rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come and who can withstand it?’ ” (Revelation 6:12-17)
I know there are many bibles that have different versions of the Bible that contain these words. But many people do not know the reason why there are different versions of the Bible. Nobody really knows which is which.
Some people don’t know me and don’t know my reason for writing at this time–especially now. I will make it very clear, Allah willing.
In Revelation Chapter 6 we can read this in some bibles:
Verse 1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
And now read this:
Verses 9-17 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
We can read these words in the 1604, King James I of England who authorized a new translation of the Bible into English.
This book was finished in 1611, just 56 years after “they” put our ancestors into slavery–us–to now!
Does this involve jealousy and envy? How much? Can you prove it? I have written about this. My first experience was when I heard the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s words on envy on a tape in 1956.
At that time, it was the first time I heard the word. Also, I did not understand the context. It also was the first time I met him in person. And the first time he gave me my assignment.
As of right now, I will not go into it deeper, but I intend to do it.
What are pride, jealousy and envy? How does it come into existence? What are its roots or does it have one root? How and what is the process by which false pride, jealousy and envy forms in the human heart? What are its manifestations? In what ways is it shown in our attitudes and actions? How is it related to all other evils? What are the means, methods and steps by which we can get this out of self? How does this relate to Holy Qur’an Surah 113 and 114?
In the Holy Qur’an we can read this:
“None dispute concerning the messages of Allah but those who disbelieve, so let not their control in the land deceive thee.
“Before them the people of Noah and the parties after them rejected (prophets), and every nation purposed against its messenger to destroy him, and disputed by means of falsehood to render null thereby the truth, so I seized them; how (terrible) was then My retribution!” (40:4, 5)
“Only Allah is your Friend and His Messenger and those who believe, those who keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and they bow down.” (5:55)
Footnote 711: After warning the weak hearted against taking their enemies for friends, the Holy Qur’an now tells them who is their real friend who can help them in their distresses and difficulties. Allah is really the only Friend of a believer; only He can come to his help in time of need. But there was God’s Messenger among them and if God was a believer’s true Friend, so was His Messenger, whose heart was full of sincerest sympathy for the true believers.
“And whoever takes Allah and His Messenger and those who believe for friend–surely the party of Allah, they shall triumph.
“O you who believe, take not for friends those who take religion as a mockery and a sport, from among those who were given the Book before you and the disbelievers; and keep your duty to Allah if you are believers.” (5: 56, 57)
Footnote 712: The Muslims were prohibited from having friendly relations with those who mocked their religion and their prophet. Friendship with such people would indeed have led to a similar bent of mind.
“O you who believe, save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is men and stones; over it are angels, stern and strong. They do not disobey Allah in that which He commands them but do as they are commanded.
“O you who disbelieve, make no excuse this day. You are rewarded only as you did.
“O you who believe, turn to Allah with sincere repentance. It may be your Lord will remove from you your evil and cause you to enter Gardens wherein flow rivers, on the day on which Allah will not abase the Prophet and those who believe with him. Their light will gleam before them and on their right hands–they will say; Our Lord, make perfect for us our light, and grant us protection; surely Thou are Possessor of power over all things.
“O prophet, strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and remain firm against them, and their abode is hell; and evil is the resort.” (66: 6, 7, 8, & 9)
The 6th verse warns the believer to try to save himself and family from fire (hell) whose fuel is men and stones; over it are angels, stern and strong. They do not disobey Allah in that which He commands them.
This verse is a warning to the believers not to neglect the seriousness of the time and judgment of the wicked. They should be busying themselves with trying to convert their families and near of kin, and even protect themselves from a fire that is promised to be used in the destruction of the wicked (the devil and those who follow him).
More next issue, Allah willing.
