“And Pharaoh said: O chiefs, I know no god for you besides myself; so kindle a fire for me, O Haman, on (bricks of) clay, then prepare for me a lofty building, so that I may obtain knowledge of Moses’ God, and surely I think him a liar. And he was unjustly proud in the land, he and his hosts, and they deemed that they would not be brought back to Us.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 28, verses 38-39
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth blocks sunlight from falling on the moon. According to the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Moon was once a part of our Earth, until 66 trillion years ago when an explosion occurred, which catapulted that part of our Earth into its present orbit.
The Moon lost her water and vital signs of life and remained as a withered and dried up chunk of our Earth rotating around her in 13 revolutions per year. There is more mystery in the Moon than in any other object in space, even more so than the central Sun of our present solar system.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us much about these objects–the Sun, the Moon and the Stars and the nine planets in our galaxy, with special emphasis on the planet Mars, which once served as our Moon. We will note in the sequence of astronomical events that have occurred since the end of August, many related phenomena have taken place, which are related to our environment in space. Much of this phenomenon has to do with the element of fire and light.
One perfect example is the recent lunar eclipse, which occurred on the evening of November 8. One interesting observation to note is that, in the western and Gregorian calendar, November is counted as the eleventh month of the year. When added to the calendar date 8, the result gives us the number 19.
Four months earlier on August 28, photos were released from the Hubble Space Telescope showing spectacular images of the planet Mars as she made her closest approach to Earth in some 60,000 years. Again, when counting August as the 9th month of the Gregorian calendar added to the number of the calendar dates, 28, the result is 19. Mars is often referred to as the Red Planet and also the Planet of War. In the 1930s, a radio broadcast narrated by the renown movie actor, Orson Wells, frightened listening audiences of America with a seemingly real life dramatization of an invasion to our planet from Mars.
Prior to the firestorms ignited over southern California, which began on October 11, there were scientific reports released concerning heightened solar wind activity and flares being emitted from the sun. The third latest flare of its kind was reported within the weeks of the holocaust of fire and brimstone that saturated large areas of southern California that reached all the way down to the Mexican border.
Hail stones and wet and rainy conditions followed a week later in northern California, which extends nearly to the border of Canada. According to the Supreme Wisdom Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and substantiated by the scriptures, there would appear such signs in the heaven combined with violent activity on earth signaling that the end was near.
The Book of Matthew in the Bible Chapter 24, verses 29-30, describe these conditions subsequent to a series of other signs, which include various plagues and viruses being unleashed along with famine, earthquakes, wars, and rumors of wars in diverse places:
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens be shaken. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
The final list of signs could be seen in the heavens is the sign of the coming of the Son of Man. From that perspective, I wish to refer to another astronomical phenomenon that has also been reported concerning a certain conjunction of planets aligned with the sun and moon, which has been called “Harmonic Concordance.” This astronomical event displayed a rare configuration–an alignment of certain named planets along with the sun and moon purportedly forming a six-sided Star of David, which was most prominent at the exact moment of the recent lunar eclipse on the evening of November 8. This sign is to be completed on November 11.
It is recorded that this phenomenon, in conjunction with the lunar eclipse, has never occurred before. Modern equipment, which includes our astronomical observatories and telescopes and other technologies employed by an advanced team from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Boulder, Colorado, and other locations are all tracking this phenomenon and taking a peek into the heavens as we close a cycle of the time that we have known.
So it is today, that modern Pharaoh is working with the latest scientific equipment and advisors to build a space station manned with space shuttles and telescopes bringing back images of our environment in space to obtain knowledge of the God of Moses today. At the center of their research is the body of knowledge called The Supreme Wisdom Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that proves the reality of God as “The Son of Man” who is seen in the heavens and on the Earth displaying great power and glory.
“So We caught hold of him and his hosts, then We cast them into the sea, and see what was the end of the iniquitous. And We made them leaders who call to the Fire, and on the day of Resurrection they will not be helped. And We made a curse to follow them in this world, and on the day of Resurrection they will be hideous.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 28, verses 40-42
