The Original Population of the Earth Under Seige in Satan’s World and Diabolical Lifestyle of Death

“Is he whose breast Allah has opened to Islam so that he follows a light from his Lord–? So woe to those whose hearts are hardened against the remembrance of Allah! Such are in clear error. Allah has revealed the best announcement, a Book consistent, repeating (its injunctions), whereat do shudder the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts soften to Allah’s remembrance. This is Allah’s guidance–He guides with it whom He pleases. And he whom Allah leaves in error, there is no guide for him.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 39, verses 22-23
There are three places in the New Testament of the Bible which introduces us to an unusual parable demonstrated by Jesus showing forth his extraordinary power of God’s Divine Spirit. Jesus is described as traveling to a province or location near Galilee, called the country of the Gerasines. There he met a man coming out of the tombs named Legion who is possessed by Demons (Devils). This narrative is recorded in the first three Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. In the Book of Mark, Chapter 5, we read that this tormented man seeing Jesus afar off ran and worshipped him recognizing that he was the Son of the Most High God and Jesus said unto him: “Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.” … Verse 11: “Now there was there near unto the mountain a great herd of swine feeding and all the demons besought him (Jesus) saying, Send us into the swine that we may enter into them and forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the swine; and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea (they were about two thousand and were choked in the sea).”
In Books I and II of “How To Eat To Live,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad devotes a whole chapter numbered 32 in Book II and pages 72-75 in Book I, giving the reader a full explanation of the meaning of this parable of Jesus and the significance of the casting out of the demons into the swine. This tormented man was ultimately healed and sat at the feet of Jesus instead of being naked was fully clothed and in his right mind. Quoting from Book I of “How To Eat To Live,” pages 74-75: “The Thing you must understand in this parable of Jesus is that, actually, the visible swine could not have gone crazy and choked in the sea or lake, because the spirit of the devil was sent in them. The true meaning that you should understand is the swine that was choked to death in the sea after the spirit of the devil was taken out of the man represents the believers among the so-called American Negroes, and the swine that ran into the lake and perished represents the disbelievers among the so-called American Negroes who refuse to accept the truth. They are so obsessed with the evil doings of the devils they will not accept their own salvation and will be choked into hell-fire with the devils.” … “I cannot force you to halt your downhill plunge with them into the lake of fire with them. I have been missioned only to warn you in the simplest language. I cannot force you to go to hell or heaven.”
Elsewhere the Honorable Elijah Muhammad writes that the hog is a grafted animal made from a rat, a cat, and a dog for medical purposes. They use this hog in much of their medical preparation even to the German 606 (606 poisonous germs). It was not intended to be eaten. By using deceit they have succeeded in getting you to eat the swine as food though it is full of microscopic worms that bring disease and death to the eater. Thus, the parable of the man with the possessed demons is a perfect illustration of the condition of our people who have been under the rule of our open enemies. Recently, a story was published in the Mexican newspapers showing top officials and laborers eating the swine in many of its forms to encourage the pork industry to continue selling this forbidden flesh to the Mexican people because of the economic downhill decline to the raisers and sellers of this forbidden animal. After considering the above story of the man possessed of demons, whom Jesus cured by sending this evil spirit into the swine that were drowned in the sea, we can see from this story the diabolical aim of Satan and his bag of tricks injuring and bringing death to the original people around the world.
A virus such as the outbreak identified as H1N1 Influenza or Swine Flu should be enough to awaken our people to the absurdity of wanting to eat or to touch the carcass of such a filthy animal. The story coverage of the slaughtering of over 300,000 hogs in Cairo, Egypt, should be enough for the hog eaters to abandon this prohibited flesh. Quoting from the Mexican newspaper, The News, we read: “Officials Pig Out on Pork to Ease Swine Flu Fears. Two hundred government employees downed heaps of pork rinds and fried tortilla wrapped meat Thursday at a Labor Secretariat garden party meant to encourage Mexicans to put the pig back in the taco. … The pork party was part of an Agriculture Secretariat publicity campaign to convince Mexicans it’s safe to eat the meat despite swine flu fears. Although experts say the virus isn’t transmitted through meat, plummeting sales have cost the pork industry $2.5 billion pesos ($188 million) since the outbreak, according to the Mexican Confederation of Pork Farmers. Labor Secretary Javier Lozano said the pig out was held to demonstrate to Mexico and the world that it is perfectly safe and very delicious and nutritious to eat pork.”
In further writing of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he speaks of our relationship with the Orthodox Jews drawing parallels between their way of preparation and eating kosher food and why it is safe for us as Muslims to eat their food. The Orthodox Jews are following the law of Moses by not eating the prohibited hog. This is one of the reasons why the Jews were much more advanced than their pig-eating brothers of the Caucasian race who remained confined to the caves and hillsides of Europe for a longer period of time.
“Is then he who has to guard himself with his own person against the evil chastisement on the Resurrection day–? And it will be said to the iniquitous: Taste what you earned. Those before them denied, so the chastisement came to them from whence they perceived not. So Allah made them taste disgrace in this world’s life, and certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is greater. Did they but know!” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 39, verses 24-26
