“And some of us are good and others of us are below that — we are sects following different ways:   And we know that we cannot escape Allah in the earth, nor can we escape Him by flight:   And when we heard the guidance, we believed in it. So whoever believes in his Lord, he fears neither loss nor injustice.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 72, verses 11-13

As we end the 19th Anniversary of the Holy Day of Atonement and the Million Man March commemorated in Kingston, Jamaica, on October 19th, the invigorating words of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan shared with millions of people throughout the Caribbean and the world brought solace and hope to our downtrodden masses.   His words are indelibly inscribed in our hearts and minds as one of the most impacting addresses of the Minister’s worldwide Mission in the mental resurrection of our dead nation and people.   As the Great Helpmeet of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he delivered his most timely message to the Isles of the Caribbean and to a world of trouble which has never been seen before.

We are now 459 years up from slavery with the yoke of oppression and servile labor being broken as it is written and prophesied from the Book of Genesis to Revelation of the Bible and from cover to cover of the Holy Qur’an. When Jacob supplanted his oldest brother, Esau, of both his birthright and his blessing through deception and fraud, his father, Isaac, could only grant his elder son the assurance that after a specific time period of his brother’s mastery over him, he would become restless and throw off the chains and yoke of his servitude to his brother.  


This teaching is the teaching of scientists and their wrangling over the divine course of history and what is necessary to give birth to a more perfect world.   This Reality we are witnessing today as the sleeping Black man and Nation in America and around the world is gradually awakening to a superior knowledge of himself and others who have tricked him through chicanery of the White man’s world.

The first slave ship trafficking our forefathers occurred in 1555. We are now ending 459 years of our forced enslavement.

This spiritual awakening of the Black man all over our planet is coming about because of the ending term of Yacob’s rule and Satan’s world.   The Divine Light of Truth has pierced the darkness of our captivity by the Brightness of the Coming of the Son of Man, God Himself, as the lightning from the East brightens up the Western horizon with his Divine Presence.   This Great Son of Man has made his appearance in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad who was born in the East in the Holy City of Mecca and came to the West to deliver his lost people from bondage.  

He began his work of salvation and redemption by first raising in our midst the first begotten of the dead, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, showing us the way to a better life and world.   Traveling in his footsteps, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is extending that Divine Light of God and his Apostle to every nook and cranny of our planetary world so that the people who sat in darkness have now seen the Great Light of Truth we have been awaiting for thousands of years.   We will note that in this current event commemorating the 19th Anniversary of the Holy Day of Atonement and the Million Man March in Kingston, Jamaica on October 19, we observe another sequence in our current study on the series of the 9/11 prophetic timeline of history.  

We will note a double occurrence of the number 19, the 19th Anniversary and the 19th day, when added together (1+9+1+9) equals 11, thus another 9/11 sequence.   As we move through the Book of Genesis’ 50 Chapters, another prophetic timeline is revealed ending in the 50th Chapter with the sign of Joseph being buried in a coffin and his body embalmed in Egypt.   In making a way for Jacob or Israel to rule, the Black man had to be put to sleep and buried in a coffin being dead to the knowledge of self and others.

This is the prevailing condition of the Black man in Africa today and those of our foreparents forcibly brought to America by the European slave traders.   They did not consider the Black man or people as being a full human being.   We were classified as being a possession or piece of property to be bought and sold as merchandise.   This number 50 which summarizes the chapters of Genesis may be taken to represent the 50,000 years in which our original Tribe of Shabazz went to sleep beginning in the jungles of East Africa to be conquered later by the European Slave Traders who bought a Trading Post in the jungle of that continent.  

This condition of the Black man is summed up in our Supreme Wisdom Lessons, in Lesson No. 1, Question and Answer 7 in the following words:   “Why does the Devil keep our people illiterate? Ans. —So that he can use them for a tool and, also, a slave.   He keeps them blind to themselves so that he can master them. Illiterate means ignorant.”   On page 107 of Message to the Blackman, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad writes: “Why is the black man just coming into his own? Because he desired to try getting experience (or trying everything) himself. Today you see every color in power but the black man, yet he is the originator of all.   Now the Great Mahdi (God in person) with His infinite wisdom, knowledge and understanding, is going to put the original black man in his original place as he was at first, the God and ruler of the universe. … They haven’t had their day in many thousands of years. Fifty thousand years ago he had his complete fall. (I shouldn’t use the word fall for it was not; he only allowed the weaker of himself to rule).”  

“And some of us are those who submit, and some of us are deviators.   So whoever submits, these aim at the right way. And as to deviators, they are fuel of hell.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 72, verses 14-15
