According to current media reports, the Bush administration plans to officially start the forming of millions of Americans into civilian spy teams in August. Reportedly, this plan is to make spies of millions of American workers, who, in the daily course of their work, are in positions to serve as extra eyes and ears for the government. This adds to America’s great number of spies.
Might whatever you read, discuss, or do in the privacy of your home, or in public, make you look suspicious, in the eyes of these new government agents? They already have access to your home, such as workers for the phone companies, the cable installers, the deliverers of your mail and others whose work takes them into your homes, etc.
What happens if these people merely think they have noticed something about you that they think makes you look like a potential terrorist? Might your name be placed in a computer database for individuals engaging in possible terrorist activity—despite your complete innocence? Does this mean that any American citizen, through any means, is now subject to becoming a suspect, involved in conspiracies against America?
This government has laws allowing its agents to conduct searches in our homes, in our absence, which the police would not have had the lawful authority to conduct without a warrant a short while ago.
There is a huge number of ignorant; nosey; judgmental; vain; vindictive; biased; spiteful; vicious; jealous; envious; extremely insecure; insane, or otherwise just plain evil people in America, excluding those who make honest mistakes. Who are going to screen these would- be spies? Who qualifies the qualifiers?
Will this increase neighbors being turned against neighbors; friends against former friends; parents against children and children against parents; employees against their employers and vice versa, etc.?
Have we come full circle—but far greater—to the turbulence and the paranoia of the 60s and 70s? That was a time when it seemed to many that America was on the brink of civil and international war. Later, governmental agencies and other powerful entities of America, supposedly working for the citizens, were exposed as their enemies. However, deceit continues, from all quarters, to the hilt in America.
For thousands of years, wicked leaders have used wicked means to gain and to hold on to their positions over others. But such wicked wisdom is now exhausted, and thus, America is stumbling headlong to the very edge of the cliff, after which is the abyss—the lowest place in hell—a nothingness from which she can never return.
Objects falling to the earth reach their greatest speed just before they hit. It takes something or someone of great strength and dexterity to halt such a falling object just before it hits.
America is falling—with great speed. However, she has one in her midst who is authorized and backed by God and the Christ, who has what it takes to halt her fall, If she will take his advice. That man is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
This is hard for many to see or take. But, just think it over.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke several times of the value of his followers, in the eyes of Allah. But the value of Minister Farrakhan, said his teacher, was greater to him than all of the wealth that is in the earth, for through him he will get all of his people. Again, Minister Farrakhan can halt America’s fall.
By now, any claim of ignorance by Caucasian Shriners and wise Jews is unjustified.
Suppose you were living in the days of any of God’s prophets? How would you have looked on them, if, for example, you saw them in the market places, shopping for food? They did ordinary things. But they were extraordinary persons because God chose them for extraordinary service for the people among whom they were raised. Although not a prophet, Minister Farrakhan is such a man, and then some.
We read that Isaiah said, in the book that bears his name, that ” É the Lord spoke thus to me with His strong hand upon me, and warned and instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying, do not call conspiracy É all that this people will call conspiracy É neither be in fear of what they fear . …
“The Lord of hosts—regard Him as holy and honor His holy name by regarding Him as your only hope of safety, and let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread lest you offend Him by your fear of man and distrust of Him.
“É He shall be a sanctuary, a sacred and indestructible asylum to those who reverently fear and trust in Him; but He shall be a Stone of stumbling and a Rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” (Isa. 12-14)
Look at and hear Minister Farrakhan, for he exemplifies these guiding divine principles, during these increasingly dark and dangerous times, when betrayal among former friends and the misjudgment and mistreatment of the righteous is on the rise. These are days of betrayal and the abuse of power, which are just moments from reaching their apex.
All of this was foreseen and written of long ago. So was that which would bring these days to a close—or no flesh would be saved—and that which comes after.
Isaiah continues: “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are signs and wonders that are to take place in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells on Mount Zion.”
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and his teacher, and we who follow them are the fulfillment of Isaiah’s words of himself and his followers.
” É when the people, instead of putting their trust in God, shall say to you, consult for direction mediums and wizards who chirp and mutter, should not a people seek and consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
“Direct such people to the teachings and to the testimony! If their teachings are not in accord with this word, it is surely because there is no dawn and no morning for them.
“And they who consult mediums and wizards shall pass through the land sorely distressed and hungry; and when they are hungry, they will fret, and will curse by their king and their God; and whether they look upward, or look to the earth, they will behold only distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish, and into thick darkness and widespread, obscure night they shall be driven away. (Isa.18-22)
“But in the midst of judgment there is the promise and the certainty of the Lord’s deliverance and there shall be no gloom for her who was in anguish.” He continues: “in the latter time He will make it glorious É .” (Isa. 9:1)
“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; those who dwelt in the land of intense darkness and the shadow of death, upon them has the Light shined.” (Is. 9:2)
More next issue—from Minister Farrakhan’s words on what makes strong Believers—Allah willing.
