Raising the bottom rail

 Tomorrow (as this is being written) is the 15th of April. It is also called Easter. As his teacher before him, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s work reveals and clarifies the underlying truth of what the celebrations the world over, under the name Easter, are really about—if understood. That understanding cannot be gained through guessing, assuming, pretense, supposing, imagining, surmising, conjecturing, presuming, and/or imposing on him and his work whatever one may think.

Especially since 1977, Minister Farrakhan has urged all to study God’s truths and to do so in the right way. Since Minister Farrakhan, as well as his teacher, had to study the word of Allah, to do their work, how can we really be of help to them in the cause that they represent, if we are ignorant of what they have asked us to study?

To continue in ignorance of the scriptures, is to disrespect the scriptures, which describe the time period through which we are living. This is disrespectful of the presence of Allah. This makes it hard for us to come out of spiritual blindness. This is relevant to our ability to follow Minister Farrakhan.

Minister Farrakhan is in the “wrapping-up” phase of his work or assignment. This “wrapping-up” work is written of in the Bible and Holy Quran. More about this “wrapping-up” work next issue, Allah willing.

We need to take a crash course in God’s word. There is hardly any time left before this “wrapping-up” work is finished. Fervent prayer, coupled with a rereading of Minister Farrakhan’s articles, his study guides and careful re-listening to his recent speeches is an excellent way to begin this crash course.

The persons responsible for the letter I placed in my previous article should follow these articles, as I am giving my answer in this column.

Let’s now continue from an excerpt from chapter two titled, A valuable Black Man, from the unpublished book, “Farrakhan: God’s Man on the Straight Path.”

The word “would” is the past tense of the word will. By whose will would the Nation of Islam rise—never to fall again? The specific answer: the will of Allah, Who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad. What, then, was the relation between the submission of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to his Teacher’s will and the power he attained, by which he grew to see and properly use his knowledge of the future?

Now, exactly what enabled and justified the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in stating that the Nation that he headed would rise—never to fall again—after its fall? Why was he able to say this with such confidence, many years before it happened in the rise of Minister Farrakhan? What did he see that would bring this rise about? Did he participate in the rise of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, and the Nation of Islam, before it took place? More relevant questions could be raised, for much is involved not just in seeing the future, but in working in such way so as to participate in determining it. The answers take us behind the veil; to the guiding Force backing the Honorable Louis Farrakhan.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was able to speak about the future, because of his exceedingly profound grasp of the forces operating within people. He grasped the laws and the process by which events to come would develop. Moreover, God had guided him so thoroughly into His will, plans and the means by which He implements His will, that he was able to participate in God’s plans. This included setting up that which insured the rise of the Nation after its fall, in 1975. It included that which would insure that it would never fall again. This is the work of a scientist of the first magnitude.

The active involvement, of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in the execution of large aspects of the will or plan of Allah, as written in the scriptures, was part of his own training for then and for the next phase of his mission. As he said, his real mission had not begun yet. He knew when that would begin. It would begin when he returned to his Teacher. Although he had spoke on this before, he told me that his real mission had not yet begun, in clear terms, in October 1969.

A few years before (in both 1966 and 1967) he went into the fact, with me, up to a point, that he would escape an especially awesome death plot. He said if Allah had not shown him how he would escape he would have no hope. He spoke of the stupendous power of Master Fard Muhammad to save him. More on this, and what he said to others on this subject, is covered in a later chapter. This has a direct bearing on the prime theme of this book and the overall work of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan.

Many, including the U.S. government, not just wanted him dead, but wanted the Nation to die and remain dead forever. She worked hard to that end. However, her power was overcome by the power of God in the rise of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, in 1977. Why was she, and others, caught off guard by his rise? What other illusions has she and others, who are opposed to the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, not yet free from?

Relevant to this are these words from 58:21 of the Holy Qur’an: “Allah has written down: I shall certainly prevail, I and My Messengers. Allah is Strong, Mighty.” This verse is related to the rise of the Nation of Islam, in the United States of America.

If this is the resurrection of the people, whom the scriptures describe as lost, by the power of the God Who would find them, at the time of the end of this world, who better fits this description any better than Black people of America?

If the Black man and woman, of America, are the people of God’s choice today to build a new world, everything in the nature of creation, powered by its Author, will force the Black man and woman in America to rise to their original and natural place in the universal order of things—in spite of themselves. If it’s time, there is no force that can stop this rise.

Daniel records this fact in these words:

“…the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.” (2:35)

Again, Daniel 2:44 reads:

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”

The Nation of Islam, which is being formed right here in the United States of America, is the kingdom that Daniel foresaw that would be set up by God Himself. It would never fall, once it was established. The full establishment was to occur after the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad—yet through him—by the wisdom and power of the Lord of the worlds.

On this same point, Matthew wrote: “The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed…which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” (13:31 & 32) This is to say that others, other than the Black people of America—who have been the least of all people on the earth—will also benefit from their resurrection.

The old folks use to say, “The bottom rail will come to the top.” That is happening now.

The 16th chapter of Matthew records an event, which, whether or not it actually happened two thousand years ago, in whole or in part, was written to give a picture of a specific set of events that took place prior to the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This event of Matthew 16, foreshadowing certain events to come, has been referred to for nearly two thousand years as Peter’s confession.

The essence of what is in Matthew 16 is that Jesus led his most intimate followers to a place called Caesarea Philippi. He deliberately chose a place that was outside of the locations where there was a greater Jewish influence. This city was a Gentile or pagan stronghold named after the Roman emperor Caesar. It was in Caesarea Philippi that Jesus chose to lead his followers, through a series of questions, to test their knowledge of his identity. He questioned them about who the people thought he was. Their answers showed their grasp of his place with God; his mission and position in the overall scheme of things. This was important, as he was, in effect, part of his own message.

Even though there were some, in that little group, who had come to see the identity of Jesus (even that he was the Messiah, to some extent) before Peter, he was the one who stated in a particularly open manner: “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16)
