I made that photo of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan that involves my article 100 percent. This involves the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he first saw Minister Farrakhan.
The Arizona Republic reads, “Detroit sinks under red ink.” Please, study the two photographs of Minister Farrakhan I took in Volume 32 Number 33, of The Final Call Newspaper and my reason for doing this, at this time.
Study the words above and study the words below. Study that photograph of Minister Farrakhan. I made that photograph, but why I did it?
Now, it was on a Friday, July 4th, 1930 when Master Fard Muhammad began knocking on the doors of the homes of Black people, in a section of Detroit, Michigan. This is when He openly began His work of getting into the hearts of Black people
Fourteen months later–and this time period is very meaningful–the Honorable Elijah Muhammad first saw Master Fard Muhammad.
Not long after their first meeting He (Master Fard Muhammad) pointed out to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that plane, which He declared as the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s vision of the Wheel.
The plane is real. The word “real” is being used here, with reference to these planes, meaning: being or occurring in fact or actuality; having verifiable existence; genuine and authentic; not artificial or spurious; being no less than what is stated; worthy of the name.
“Real,” here, is that which has actual existence. The Mother plane and its “babies” are concrete and tangible.
We are not speaking of the projection of someone’s imagination. We are not talking about an illusion. These planes are not hallucinations. We are here talking about real steel, and then some.
We are considering something of the greatest significance, which exists objectively in the world regardless to the subjective or customary ways most people think or speak, or imagine about that which has been made obscure or mysterious to us as a whole. This plane is not to be taken lightly.
It is serious. And from the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad its occupants are about the most serious kind of business.
The existence of this plane has a direct bearing on Minister Farrakhan’s stand about the state of being of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and that he is very much alive.
This subject also has the greatest implications for the future of Minister Farrakhan, as well as the rest of us, including our Latino, Native Americans, and Asian Brothers and Sisters–all of us and even some white people …
The Mother of those plane’s conception, purpose, financing, planning, engineering, construction, its powers and activities, were kept as a total secret from the rulers and the general public of this world until a certain prearranged time.
So was the tremendous preparation of those who were involved in its production. The secret was revealed by Master Fard Muhammad, to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, shortly after it took off from the secret place where it was constructed.
As I’ve said, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us that Master Fard Muhammad pointed this plane out to him, and taught him about it, soon after they first met in September 1931. Then the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was directed by his Teacher to make the truth of it known to Black people, America, and the world, from the early 1930s onward. This he has done.
Many in the public, saw it in the early 1930s, and it was even reported in the Canadian press. Not long after a few reports appeared in America’s newspapers. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad mentioned this in Our Saviour Has Arrived on page 237 and added these words: “It came down out of the sky. They admitted that it looked like a great city…”
This is what Minister Farrakhan said he saw in his vision; a huge city in the sky. This reminds me of the city foreseen at the close of the book of Revelation. That city was seen coming down out of heaven.
The Mother plane comes down, from the heavens, so said the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, every year to a year and a half to suck up enough oxygen for their needs.
This unusual plane has since become known to an overwhelming number of people, from all walks of life, including those of the highest scientific knowledge, throughout America and the world. However, only the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, and demonstrated that he had the real and full truth concerning it from its designer, Who also governs its operation and work.
There are United States government officials who know the truth of what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said of this plane. When they arrested him, on false charges, back in 1942, they took the blackboard, which was in the place where the Muslims met.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad knew he was going to be arrested. He, therefore, deliberately made a drawing of this plane on the blackboard and put other data about it on the board, as he knew what was about to happen to him. He wanted them to know certain things.
He also knew that after a time he could come out of prison and the things they would learn would serve him and the future of his people later.
He had eluded them (the FBI) and hypocrites who sought his life for years. He could have kept that up indefinitely. However, at a certain time Allah revealed to him that if he didn’t give himself up, to be imprisoned, he would lose all of his followers.
The FBI and other governmental persons, questioned him extensively about this plane, and of many other things. They well knew he told them the truth. They learned much from and about him.
In the course of the discussions, they told him that if he was caught teaching, what he was teaching twenty years earlier, he would have been shot on sight. But, they admitted that it was time for him to teach what he was teaching. Even though they had him in their custody, their power was dwindling.
He was in their prison, but not in their power. His God was yet in power, in a few ways they could see, and in many ways they were to one day see that what they did to him furthered his (the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s) growth into power. The manner of his determining when and where and how he would be arrested was indicative of his growing power.
He was arrested on May 8, 1942 and released August 26, 1946. Thirteen years later they were forced to honor him with a Washington D.C. police escort, in 1959, wherever he went, as he visited the capital of the U.S.A. to teach 10,000 of his own people at the Uline Arena. Time brings about changes–all of the time.
This is just a summary of what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us about this plane and its purpose. Ezekiel’s vision of wheels in the middle of a great wheel has been fulfilled in reality and is real–not reel!
Again, study that photograph of Minister Farrakhan. I know, I’m repeating myself, for my reason, for you.
Next article, Allah willing I’ll mention something about Minister Farrakhan’s 52 week broadcast that you can watch, listen to, and study every Saturday that all of us should be studying.
More next issue, Allah willing.
