Among the points that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan emphasized is the fact that a Black man born in Georgia was and is the Jesus of the New Testament.
Many scholars and some “higher up” White folks know that the Black man and woman are really the chosen people of the Bible, under many names, types, and symbols–such as the “dry bones,” the “lost sheep,” the “Prodigal Son,” etc.
If you say that Minister Farrakhan is crazy, I will ask you this: Do you really believe that the Pope really believes Jesus is in the skies–and has been there for 2,000 years, in spirit form, to be transformed into visible bodily form, which everyone will see one day, so that he could come to save and to destroy?
Have you studied the history of the formation of the church? Is it, as so many Caucasians teach, no more than ancient paganism warmed over? How did it rule and prosper in Europe during what they call the “Dark Ages” at the expense of the ignorant White masses? If the church represented God’s light, why then was that time period called the “Dark Ages?”
How could the church be in power, be of God and Jesus, rule all but unhindered and yet that time period be “Dark”? What about the White church–in all of its forms–in relation to the never-ending wars of Europe and elsewhere; to science, which it has always fought; to world-wide thievery in terms of the land and resources of others, which she has been heavily involved in; and to the worst event in all of history: the enslavement of the Black man and woman, especially in America? Just what do you think Jesus thinks and feels about all of this?
As we move, more or less, from the Pope, let us reflect on a question of faith. Consider these two situations. Pope Francis is the spiritual leader of many millions, who occupies a special position among men on earth that goes back to Peter. Peter was put in a certain position to Jesus, by Jesus. The Popes, including the present one–occupy that same position to Jesus, so we are told. Of course, the Peter of the Bible had a wife. That is in your Bible. Read it for yourself.
Matthew 8:14, “And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.”
Did a man named Jesus actually come from a state of total death? Was he seen by some and then actually went upward into the sky to where (as we have been told) God and others are?
What is the real basis that this event really took place? What is the solid evidence on which this is based?
In 1981, Minister Farrakhan announced publicly that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad did not die in 1975. He proclaimed, among other things, that he was, in fact, alive, even as he spoke those words. He repeated this, and more over the years. I am not detailing Minister Farrakhan’s position any more than I have in these short articles; I do hope what is expressed is very clear. I am attempting to stimulate deep thought.
Question: Is the grounds or the evidence supporting Minister Farrakhan’s position respecting the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as the Christ of The New Testament less powerful than that of the Pope? Deeper: Which of the two is right? If this Black man is right–what then?
Since the gospels were not written when Paul preached, what scriptures did he use? There was no New Testament at that time. He used, roughly what we now call The Old Testament. Does The Old Testament really support the Pope’s position?
Acts 17:3 is exactly what Minister Farrakhan is preaching. Verse 4 refers to the great number of our people who were not among the followers of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad before 1975. This is being fulfilled, even as you read these words.
Verse 5 tells us that some of us, who followed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad before 1975, accept Minister Farrakhan properly– as the man divinely chosen to do as he is doing. Others do not. Instead, they are moved by envy. Still others are moved by another factor: They love this world’s life. We are living in quite a time.
Here are the words of this passage, Acts 17:3-5: “Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.”
There is much I would like to cover. I will state it as plainly as I can and then move on. It is this: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad is the Christ of The New Testament; and the Peter and the Paul (also of the New Testament) give a picture of stages in the person and work of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. What stage has the Honorable Elijah Muhammad reached from 1975 to now? This gives you a clue to the stage the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is heading. (Do not say that this is crazy just because it seems that way to you. “Seems” is not always real.)
Now, if this is the truth–and it is–it follows that the Pope of Rome is in the process of being shown up as a fraud, to the ultimate degree, in a way that goes far beyond the efforts of Protestant White Christians to show the same down through the centuries (in Europe and America) and even up until this day. As I have mentioned, there are “tons” of writings by White Christians that have as their objective the exposure of the papacy as the worst kind of fraud and also as being based on blatant lies and half truths about Jesus.
However, the point that I have borne witness to above takes the controversy beyond anything yet put forth down through the centuries. I am not saying this because I have written it in this article. Of course not! What settled this controversy is the fact that the God that the prophets prophesied and predicted would come, has indeed, and is in fact, arrived.
God is no more to come. He is present. The greatest evidence (that leads to overwhelming proof) is the person, character, mission, teachings, and work of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad now through the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. This evidence was, and is, spiritual, moral and physical in nature.
