Envy was a major factor used by God in the exaltation of Jesus

To avoid a mixup, I want the readers to know that my article that was originally Vol. 24, No. 20 appears in a Special Edition of The Final Call dated February 26, 2005. The editor titled it, “The Way of Genuine Love.” This special issue was not given a “volume” and “number.” This is a most important issue of The...

The patient way of Minister Farrakhan

One of the most misunderstood characteristics of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the nature of his love, out of which comes his way. By the word “way” I mean: a means, manner or method of doing or achieving something; the state or condition of somebody or something, especially with regard to the issues of life common to us all;...

Raising of Lazarus leads to envious plot to kill Jesus

"Jesus wept." This is the shortest verse in the Bible. It's verse 35 of Chapter 11 in the gospel of John. Verse 36 reads: "Then said the Jews, ‘Behold how he loved him.'" Loved who? Lazarus. One of the meanings of Lazarus' name is "Whom God helps." He was a poor and wretched man. But Jesus loved him. And he raised...

Minister Farrakhan stands between chastisement and us – He is God’s mercy

America has not yet really paid God's price for the murder of millions of Black people, whom she enslaved and brutalized for centuries. Nor has she really paid His price for murdering Black leaders. But she will pay the greatest price when she executes her plan against the life of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and then those with...

Do we really understand what is communicated to us?

I Thessalonians 5:21 urges us to “Prove all things and hold fast to that which is good.” According to Strong's Concordance, “prove” comes from a Greek word, “dokimazo” that in English means: “to test, examine, prove, scrutinize; to recognize as genuine after examination, to approve, deem worthy.” Part of the meaning of “examine” is to analyze something in order to...

Mass awakening of preachers: A sign of the end

“When the fulness of time was come, God sent forth His Son made of a woman, made under the law that He might redeem them that were under the law.” (Galatians 4:4) “Prepare Me a body and I will go down and redeem man.” In the older Bibles, these words were taught by Christian theologians to have been words that...

Perfection comes through what we suffer

Must we rid ourselves of envy in order to qualify for the kingdom of Allah in the hereafter? Yes. How? How means it’s a process. It involves pain. Pain, however, is only a temporary but necessary and valuable by-product of this process. But it’s worth it. To be free from envy, we first must come to see envy in ourselves,...

Freedom is untangling words and their meaning

“My brother, Aaron, he is more eloquent in speech than I, so send him with me as a helper to confirm me... He said: … We will give you both an authority, so that they shall not reach you. With Our signs, you two and those who follow you, will triumph.” (Holy Qur'an 28:34, 35) On December 4, 2004, I...

Scriptural recognition

"Say: O People of the Book, why do you hinder those who believe from the way of Allah, seeking (to make) it crooked, while you are witnesses? And Allah is not heedless of what you do." (Holy Qur'an 3:98) "And certainly We know those among you who go forward and We certainly know those who lag behind." (Holy Qur'an...

The explosive truth of Jesus

Human beings, whether they are good, evil or a mixture of both, need meaning. The way human beings arrive at meaning is through the making of interpretations, which yield meaning–whether correct, incorrect or a mixture of both. This occurs even on the cellular level, or on the subconscious level of human life. People make interpretations all day long every day,...
