How many Bibles are there in English in America? I know that there are many Holy Qur’an(s) in America that are translated from the Arabic language into English, but I don’t know exactly how many there are in America and why.
Some years ago, I saw 20 of them, later I learned that a few more were made. How many more, I don’t know and I don’t know the purpose. But all of them were translated in the English language.
Why have there been so many revisions and new translations of the many previous revisions of the Bible into English? Have their numbers increased?
How does this involve the many different translations of the Bible and of the Holy Qur’an in America?
Does this involve the condition of Black people? Yes.
How many of these translations will agree with The Supreme Being and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad?
This involves the above.
Does this involve the when and how of the history of slavery of Black people in America? Yes.
Why did the Honorable Elijah Muhammad state that only God Himself, or one taught by Him, could accurately or truthfully interpret the Bible and the Holy Qur’an? Does this involve the relationship of these two books and the condition of Black people here in the United States of America?
This involves the time when prophecy is in the process of being fulfilled. How does this relate to the timing of the resurrection of the dead here in the United States of America?
In the Bible we can read in Genesis Chapter 15 verses 12 to 18:
12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.
13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.
18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates … .
My mother and father asked my brother and I to read one page of the Bible. That was when I was four years old. I do not know which translation of the Bible it was. I also do not know what part of the Bible they asked us to read. Many years later, my mother told me that it involved the Old Testament. To me that event is important. Also it’s important to this article.
Later, my mother took us to church, but not many times. I recall nothing of the words that the Pastor spoke.
Then my mother took my brother and I on a two-week vacation with her, to South Carolina.
I was sitting down in a boat in the lake rowing the boat. I was rowing the boat for three days in a row. The fourth day we were not in the boat, we were sitting down talking to each other. That was when we saw three so-called UFOs. We did not know what it was–at all. At that time, we had no idea. I was sixteen years old at that time. The next day, it was reported in the local newspaper. But we still did not know what it was.
In an earlier article, I made a mistake. A mistake is different then a lie. I used the word “ocean” instead of the word “lake” when I spoke about my first experience with the so-called UFOs.
That mistake involves my condition, that with the help of Allah, I’m coming out of it, totally. I made my condition very public several years ago.
When I entered the Nation of Islam, in 1955, one of the facts that we learned was concerning the truth of the so-called UFOs. Of course my mind went back to the first time when I saw those planes when I was sixteen years old. Later on, that same year I told my mother what it was that we saw. I was living with two FOI at that time.
In July of 1954 I went to four mosque meetings. During those four meetings I was stunned over what I heard. I then started the process of becoming a Registered Muslim in the Nation of Islam. It was not until January of 1955 that I became a Registered Muslim. I intend to go fully into this event, next article, Allah willing.
I saw and watched the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1955 twice. Later on that same year I also saw and met the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in 1955.We became instant friends.
Now, I’m asking you to read and study a few words of Minister Farrakhan that has a bearing on this very unique time that we are living in. You could find those words on the back cover of the book titled: IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE HONORABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD IS STILL PHYSICALLY ALIVE ???
More next issue, Allah willing
