I’ve written publicly about the relationship between the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan starting in 1974. I’ve tried four times to get to Minister Farrakhan. But that was not to happen until 1977.
“O wheel.” –Ezekiel 10:13
“ ‘Zekiel saw ‘dat wheel, way up in the middle of the air.” –from the Black slave spiritual.
“Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home.”–from the Black slave spiritual.
Is there really a huge physical plane, made like a wheel, which is a half-mile by a half-mile in diameter, which often flies high above the United States of America and the world?
This is what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said was true time and again, publicly and privately, for over 40 years. He made it very clear that his information about this wondrous plane came directly from God–the Supreme Being–Himself, Whom he declared that he met in person right here in America in 1931.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan bears witness to the same–publicly and in private. I’ll go into this much deeper when I have more space than I have in a few articles, Allah willing.
Many people react to this very serious problem. You can get both of their words from Chicago, even if you were not there or have not heard their words.
I know all of us have different reactions to these words. I’m mentioning a few words from my experience. It involves an experience I had that involves the words and the life of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
I’ve mentioned it on March 16, 1987 in The Final Call to help the readers. I did not state it fully at that time.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was having dinner, with his laborers, who came in from different cities in America. That event went on for two days before a Saviour’s Day meeting, which was in February 1972 or 1973.
He was working on solving a very serious problem. It involved envy and jealousy. Some people are dead because of these problems.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad wanted me to get to his home, in Chicago that day much earlier than I did from Phoenix.
The airplane had problems. I got into Chicago four hours later than I was supposed to arrive there. Allah willing, I will go into this a little deeper. But for now really study this.
During that dinner the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “Whenever you accuse an innocent man of that which he did not do, the heavens and the earth cries out for justice for the innocent man and the punishment he would have received falls on the head of the guilty.”
When he stopped speaking, Minister Farrakhan asked him the question of repentance. That was to have very significant meaning to him and to all of those that were present in that meeting.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s response to him was: “Oh yes brother, repentance is accepted, but if the accusation was open then, the repentance must be open and it must be in time.”
This tells us what kind of heart Minister Farrakhan has to do this good work on a people (us) with compassion for other persons that they had done evil to; for this sinner, who has done something very vicious and evil on another that has not yet even repented.
That situation involves the future, which is now. I’ve made a book that involves that problem. I know many hate it. They have proved this because they have destroyed it and the people are still envious. Can “we” get out of this 100 percent? Yes–but it must be in time!
Now, what kind of wisdom, or what kind of mathematics is involved in “in time?” What does it mean in that situation?
I’m continuing Minister Farrakhan’s words that he spoke in San Diego at the Leadership Conference:
“… See, God is Pure, He’s Holy; and man can be that; the scripture says, (Jesus talking) ‘Be ye perfect.’
“Why would Jesus ask you to be what you can’t be? You may ask, ‘what are you talking about Jesus’? ‘Be ye perfect, as your father in heaven is perfect.’
“Now what are you telling me of Jesus. You’re telling me that I have a capacity for perfection. I can be perfect. And I know I’m on my way, but my father in heaven is perfect. And you told me, when I asked you, Master teach us how to pray. And he said pray on this wise, our father; not yours and not mines; not mines and not yours.
“And if he could father Jesus into perfection he could father you and me into that same perfection based on our surrender of our will to do the Will of God.
“I’d like to close and thank Him. You want to lead your people, my question is: How much do you love them? What is the quality of your love as an Imam, as a Leader, as a Guide for your people?
“How will the quality of my love be measured? Jesus says, he gave two commandments and then he gave a third. He was about to leave and he said, ‘Love ye one another even as I have loved you.’
“He was setting up the quality by which our leadership and our love could be measured, using himself as the standard. What was he willing to suffer for the redemption of human kind? He’s called in Isaiah the Suffering Servant.
“Many of us run away from suffering; a few people start talking about you and you want to quit or you want to send somebody to beat the heck out of them, do something but shut their mouths cause what they’re saying about me is really the truth.
“In the book of John, God is love. See this word love is the most powerful word in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“The Qur’an doesn’t use love. It’s mentioned but not like it is mentioned in the New Testament. The Qur’an demonstrates love.
“You can’t say to your wife, ‘I love you.’ And then she’s hungry; and you’re not ready to work to bring something in to feed her.
“Well your love is lacking, because when you measure it against what the Master was willing to do for love; He was willing to die for what He loved. And then He drops it on us; greater love had no man that he’s willing to lay down his life for his friend. How do you know Farrakhan loves you? How do you know that?
“Look at the forces that are arrayed against me. I’m not sugar coating the enemy. If the enemy is the government of America, I have to tell the truth. If it is powerful members of the Jewish community, I got to tell the truth. I don’t care who you are.
“So my life is in the balance now, the enemy can’t take me much longer. But I’m willing to die, because I’m willing to live my life for the rise of our people and the rise of suffering humanity.
Do you agree with these words above?
More next issue, Allah willing.
