Witnessing the rock-solid basis of a divine mission

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad recognized Master Fard Muhammad on first sight on the night of September 22, 1931. He told us that Master Fard Muhammad told him “not to give the little baby ‘meat,' but ‘milk' instead. Meanwhile, He would feed the man He chose to represent Him, ‘meat' and plenty of it during the next three plus years. Sometime...

Do you really believe in divine prophecy?

In clear and firm language, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught on the source and value of divine prophecy. He made clear that humanity, especially our generations, had come into the time when those prophecies, written long ago, of the end of this world and the establishment of the kingdom of God has arrived. He taught that God was, in...

The Harvest: The separation of the wheat and tare

The New International Version of the Gospel of Matthew 13:1-51 reads: "That day Jesus went out of the house and was sitting by the sea.

Farrakhan The Traveler

In my last article I used the word “ocean.”   Later, I came to see that my article contained one word that is wrong. I should have used the word “lake” instead of the word “ocean.” A lake is very different from an ocean. That part of last week's article should have read “A few days later, while looking over...
