“My God has not put forth 100 percent effort yet to make you see the truth. When He does, you will not go to hell with them.” (from a Theology of Time lecture by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad)
“Boom! … When the Son of Man proves that He is justified in destroying the wicked, then they will be destroyed in the twinkling of an eye.” (Chapter 34 of Our Saviour Has Arrived by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad)
It’s written: “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.” (Matthew 10:42)
Master Fard Muhammad came to America and taught the Honorable Elijah Muhammad His Wisdom. Over time, He taught him the wisdom of everything. This included the meaning of everything written in the scriptures, namely the Bible and the Holy Qur’an.
The scriptures verifies that which Master Fard Muhammad taught the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and what He taught His servant verifies the truth of the scriptures. The fulfillment of what was written is more than sufficient proof of the truth that He revealed to His servant.
Both books were mostly focused on that which was to occur in America between the slave-masters and their slaves, especially from the time of His appearance in America, onwards. He taught him right up to the end of these writings. This includes the end of that which was written about the relationship between the ex-slave-masters and their ex-slaves.
With the passing of time, the number of persons (especially the ex-slaves) who understand the truth increases, due primarily to the works of the two Messiahs–the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. But the number of Original People who really understand God’s truth is still very small.
There is not much left of the scriptures to be fulfilled. However, what’s coming from God will cause mass recognition and acceptance of His Truth. The final phase of this world’s ending will do it.
The time is short, in terms of the actual time it takes for the final phase of what’s written to be fulfilled. The events to occur during this short amount of time will seem by most people as determining the future. But the matter will have already been determined long before by Allah, Who authors and governs time.
To illustrate my point, consider these words on pages 64-65 of “Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive???”
“The last week and day of Jesus’ life takes more space in the Bible (the part called Gospels) than all of his life up to that point. There is little mentioned of his actual birth. Next to nothing is written of the first thirty years of his life. There is brief notice given of an incident when he was twelve. Nothing else. Little is mentioned of the first year of his ministry. More is given of his second year. Still more is given of the third year plus.
“Then, eight of the 28 chapters of Matthew; six of the 16 chapters of Mark; nearly six of the 24 chapters that make up Luke; nearly 10 of the 21 chapters that make up the book of John, cover from his last week through what is said to be his rise from the dead and his ascension. But even most of this space is taken up by the events of his last week.
“Please note that seven of the 10 chapters of John, which deal with Jesus’ last week, focuses on the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life on earth–which constitute 33 percent of the gospel of John! Why?
“This makes one think there is some significance in this arrangement.”
If understood, this ought to make us think and organize ourselves better to quickly study that which is worthwhile–that which is relevant to these times.
With the ending of the gospels in mind, I went to the Internet yesterday (December 4) under, or in, the “news” and I looked up “jealousy” and then “envy” to see what were the incidents that were reported as inspired by these two emotions throughout America.
I read. I then wrote this article and the notes of the next few articles that follow.
In December 1979 or January 1980, Brother Askia Muhammad gave to Minister Farrakhan, Brother Khallid and I about 300 pages of The Freedom of Information Act of the FBI’s activities against the Nation of the Islam, prior to 1975. We looked especially at their words on Muhammad’s Mosque No. 7 (New York, N.Y.) and No. 32 (Phoenix, Arizona).
Some of the names of persons were blacked out. It was clear from the context, however, that most of the persons whose names were blacked out were members of our mosques.
We broke bread together. We knew them, but we did not know them well enough.
But, Allah knew them, thoroughly.
Some years ago, Minister Farrakhan wrote one of his divinely inspired study guides. It was the 17th in a series. It was entitled: “Hypocrisy and Conspiracy.”
The following are some of Minister Farrakhan’s words in this study guide, except where bracketed.
“6. Can a person be part of a conspiracy and not know it? If so, how (by what means) does this happen?” [What states of mind make us susceptible to what Minister Farrakhan referred to in his October 30, 2005 address in Houston, Texas: How Can We Stand Against The Wiles Of Satan?]
[After providing examples from the Old Testament of the dangerous effects of envy, he wrote:]
“All of the examples above come to crystallization in the New Testament with the focus of the wicked against the Messiah, foretold in the Second Psalm.”
“Why do I write a Study Guide on “Hypocrisy and Conspiracy” at this Juncture?
“Even as the rod of Aaron budded and the rods of the pretenders did not, creating more intense hatred in them of Aaron; even as Jesus did what the leadership of the day was not unable to do, but were prevented from doing by the envious condition of their hearts and minds.
“I write this Study Guide at this time to warn the followers of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and Black people in general, that the plot thickens, the conspiracy broadens, the secret counsels are taking place.
“People are being drawn into the conspiracy through ignorance and others are drawing them into the conspiracy knowingly and deliberately.
“The Sin of Ignorance is the dissatisfaction with the apparent slowness of Allah’s (God’s) reward for faithful service.
“I have put forth this Study Guide that we may not fall victim to History. Dispelling Ignorance with Knowledge can save the unwitting, dissatisfied from becoming part of the conspiracy. But those moved by Envy and Hatred cannot be turned aside with knowledge.
“In the case of Judas, it was not the 30 pieces of silver that were important, it was the envy and hatred of the one he betrayed that moved him.
“Disappointment and dissatisfaction precede treachery.
“Very few persons can even imagine themselves in the place of such a wretched individual as Judas. But envy and hatred grew over a period of time. No one is beyond the capacity to become a Judas; everyone experiences disappointment and/or dissatisfaction at some time or another.
“It is how we handle it that determines our direction.”
