I must write about this now because it involves experiences all Believers must go through, on some level, of what Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, went through when He was in the U.S.A. Then the Honorable Elijah Muhammad went through the same experiences. He is alive and well! The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us what we must go through to redeem us–the Black people here in America. He went though all of it before he left the U.S.A. in 1975.
In the book, A Torchlight for America, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan wrote, spoke and talked about a new educational system. For example, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to Minister Farrakhan, “As in geometry, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. So, it is in education.”
He said, “Why don’t you start the course where you intend to finish. You’ll be surprised how quickly the children are able to grasp the end of the course. And you are wasting valuable time leading up to something that they could grasp if you had the mind to teach.” He said that, “At six years old, we should know what we want to do with our life.”
There’s no time for foolishness, when you look at life and the requirement and purpose of life.” He said looking at Yakub, the father of this world, “That he finished all the schools of his day at eighteen years of age.” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “The children should be graduating with a Ph.D. degree at The ruling class of America, has not changed and will not change 18 years of age.”
Which means waiting until a child is six to go to school is absolutely wasting the most precious years of a child’s life; and filling those six years with foolishness and untruths and cartoons that make animals speak and whatnot.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “You should deal with truth from the very day that the child can begin to think and learn; you deal with truth, not lies. Bears don’t speak. Pigs don’t speak. Tigers don’t speak. Bunny rabbits don’t speak. So let the children see humans doing what humans do. Don’t confuse them.
Well a new educational system is what is required and unfortunately this world will not offer it. But Allah and His Christ is offering it, and will offer it continuously until the old dies and the new takes precedent over the old.
Minister Farrakhan saw that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad would be sitting in his dining room listening to a tape of himself and he would get carried away and start applauding. While we were watching it was so intriguing to me because he was applauding as though he was not listening to himself. But he was listening to the intervention of God in that which he was saying to us.
As I was reading the last chapter of this book, you know, it’s hard for me to say that I wrote such words. I’m applauding the intervention of God and His Christ in the words that He blessed me to put in black and white for the world to see my mind; my heart; my spirit; my soul.
If one would study, A Torchlight for America, although Minister Farrakhan wrote it for America highlighting the diseases of a great nation, subliminally he wrote it for The Nation of Islam and the diseases that could, would and have affected us as a people. Sometimes when we see America, we say, “Oh that’s for them.” We miss the point. It was written with a double meaning, for America and for us.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us to study the history of Israel, in the scriptures, under that we’re also studying about ourselves. So we should pay attention to what happened to Israel; her many rebellions; her many chastisements and yet the God was merciful to her. Well that’s good for us to study and see and know that God is no respecter of persons– that He will punish; chastise us because He loves us. And if that is the only way to get us to think and act properly, then the chastisement is overdue, but it is on its way.
Then we discussed the next edition with a new cover on it that brings out my idea better. A part of what he said was: “A Torchlight for America, White and Black, you know. You could have the two Americas, you know; one with the Black, Brown, the Native, the non- White and then White America.”
When you asked me about the seal, the true nature of this nation is found in the seal. And the six nations, out of which America was peopled, represent what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “What is the meaning of American?”
In the old dictionaries it was those of European extraction, not the aboriginal people of the earth. In the mind of those who rule America they have never changed from the original perception and conception of the founding fathers. To this very moment, they are of the same mind. This is why a genocidal approach now is being taken to the Blacks and soon the Brown, and the Native Americans are already a decimated group.
People of color will–according to their view–never rule in this land. This is also why, even though, we have the right to vote legally, all kinds of machinations are put in place to rob us of the power of the vote.
They seek to and do corrupt our leaders, and trap them through entrapment schemes orchestrated by the government to destroy in us even the desire to vote for our own people.
All of these evil acts are a part of that mind-set that is reflected in the seal of the United States of America that is in the ruling class: the Rockefellers, the DuPont’s. All of that group of minds that represents the ruling class of this nation–they have not changed. They will not change. Their idea is the destruction of the mass, if the mass looks like it will oppose what is represented in that seal and in the thinking of the founding fathers of this nation. This is why in the Bible, Paul said, “We war not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers and the rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places.” It’s a myth that America is pluralistic.
It’s a myth that America is for all. That is food for the sick desire of others to want to be American. But at the top they know what America is. It’s what they envisioned America to be and why our presence and the multiplication of our seed is threatening and why every scientific method of destruction of us is now put into force that if we do not find a way to separate from this people, within the years there may not be Black people in America.
More next issue, Allah willing
