Get and study the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s book, titled “A Torchlight for America.” I’m starting this article with a few words from this book that was published in The Final Call, March 31, 2009.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote in one of his books “The disbeliever believes that which he sees present and not that which is prophesied to come.”
To explain myself fully requires some time and space. The whole truth from the time Minister Farrakhan wrote the book, to the reason, involves the fulfillment of prophecy. Why I’m writing this now? This date is May 28, 2016.
In the Holy Qur’an Maulana Muhammad Ali translation we read:
2:248 And their prophet said to them: Surely the sign of his kingdom is that there shall come to you the heart in which there is tranquility from your Lord and the best of what the followers of Moses and the followers of Aaron have left, the angels bearing it. Surely there is a sign in this for you if you are believers.
7:142 And We appointed for Moses thirty nights, and completed them with ten, so the appointed time of his Lord was complete forty nights. And Moses said to his brother Aaron: Take my place among my people, and act well and follow not the way of the mischief-makers.
10:75 Then after them We sent Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh and his chiefs with Our signs, but they were arrogant, and they were a guilty people.
19:53 And We gave him out of Our mercy his brother Aaron, a prophet.
20:30 Aaron, my brother;
20:70 So the enchanters fell down prostrate, saying: We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.
21:48 And certainly We gave Moses and Aaron the criterion and a light and a reminder for those who keep from evil, 23:45 Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our messages and a clear authority 25:35 And certainly We gave Moses the Book and We appointed with him his brother Aaron, an aider.
26:13 And my breast straitens, and my tongue is not eloquent, so send for Aaron (too).
28:34 And my brother, Aaron, he is more eloquent in speech than I, so send him with me as a helper to confirm me. Surely I fear that they would reject me.
37:114 And certainly We conferred a favour on Moses and Aaron.
37:120 Peace be to Moses and Aaron!
From Minister Farrakhan’s book titled A Torchlight For America, we can read:
“America also throws away the taxpayer’s money by commissioning valuable studies yet the government never really uses the result for the purpose of doing good. Though many of these studies are unpopular, they provide solutions that America could perhaps use to stop the ship of state from sinking. But this mindset of greed has permeated every aspect of society, blinding the rulership to the result of studies that they themselves have commissioned. Greed was in the very genesis of this country. Greed was at the root of slavery, and it persists as a central problem to this date.
“The business community is so filled with greed that the bottom line means more to corporate America than the lives of the people and America’s well-being as a nation. Now both the business community and the nation are in trouble, and the business community is asking the taxpayer (through the government) to bail it out. Rather than accepting less profits, businesses close plants, export jobs overseas and negotiate deals with the government that take America further into debt.
“The military budget is as great as during war time, yet senators in states with strong weapons industries fight for military budget increases so that contracts can remain in their states–in effect saying to hell with the country and its budget woes. Allah (God) has a way of showing His disapproval to those who are wise enough to read the signs. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Act, was enacted to finance emergencies and recoveries from national disasters. Natural disasters are God’s way of indicating His displeasure and are a sign of impending doom. FEMA doesn’t have enough money to pay for the earthquakes that hit San Francisco during the World Series a few years ago. FEMA does not have enough money to pay for Hurricane Hugo, Cyclone Omar, the hurricane in Hawaii, the tornadoes that have torn up Tampa Bay, and Hurricane Andrew.
“All of these catastrophes increase the budget deficit. And more of these catastrophes are on the way to America with ever-increasing rapidity. This is God’s way of nudging or forcing government leadership to accept real solutions to the country’s problems. Jehovah used 10 plagues against Pharaoh. Those 10 plaques, including natural calamity from snow, rain, hail and earthquakes, are seen in the world today, particular in America.
“There is a certain arrogance and false pride among the leadership that encourages the wrath of God. The leadership would like to keep up a reputation in the world that is not supported by its people. America gives away billions to other countries while she is suffering at home. What is the basis for this spending? It’s the lust for power and the maintenance of imperialism. America gives $4 billion in aid to Israel, whose population is just six million, while giving just $1 billion in aid to all of sub- Saharan Africa, which has more than 600 million inhabitants. This shows us clearly where the government’s priorities rest.
“America wants to keep up a posture and uphold White supremacy in the world while she deprives her people at home. America spent $10 billion for the homeless Jews in Russia while millions of her own people are living under bridges and in cardboard boxes or on the street. These are yesterday’s workers–and America’s former taxpayers and soldiers– but America turns a deaf ear to their suffering to maintain her image abroad as a superpower.
“In the Bible it is asked, “… what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36. There is a principle that charity begins at home. What good is it to spread democracy abroad and lose it at home? Has America lost all of its senses and become blinded by greed, arrogance and foolish pride? Greed represents a moral problem. It’s a spiritual disease. The country needs a spiritual awakening and a spiritual change that will lead to moral consciousness. Even some of the spiritual teachers must be freed from this spiritual disease.
“Qualified spiritual teachers have to be urged to teach the populace, particularly the rich, against their greed and immorality and put the people in a position to make sacrifices. Without the will to make sacrifices, the country will go down. The rich have to be imbued with that spiritual and moral desire to sacrifice more of their profits to help America survive. Or else, the future, which is already mortgaged, will most assuredly be lost to revolution and anarchy.”
