The dangers of making assumptions

This is a dangerous time to make decisions based on assumptions. According to the truth of the 12th chapter of the book of Daniel, we’ve entered this most dangerous of all times since time began.

A seemingly harmless example of the dangers of assumptions, especially for us who are followers of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, is to assume that the scientists of this world are correct when they claim that they’ve discovered solar systems beyond this one.

Another seemingly harmless example is to assume their calculations concerning Pluto, or Platoon, are correct, especially when we have the words of Minister Farrakhan’s teacher’s Teacher, in a lesson called The Problem Book.

Many claim that the 9th planet is probably not even a planet. One reason some of them make this claim is because their calculations are that Pluto is smaller than our moon. Wrong! Pluto is about 8.45 times larger than the planet earth, by Master Fard Muhammad’s study. This one fact is bound to affect all of their other calculations about the 9th planet. Why assume that they are correct?

Furthermore, they don’t have a clue to the spiritual side of Pluto or of any other object in space. The spirituality they attribute to the physical side of Allah’s creation is downright demonic.

Minister Farrakhan has often warned us against acting like spiritual pigs, swallowing everything that comes our way. He has warned us time and again against being judgmental and judging other than by what Allah has revealed.

Read Surah 5, section 7 of the Holy Qur’an, which repeatedly warns that, “whoever judges not by what Allah has revealed, those are the disbelievers.” Read the whole section for context and greater clarity.

If understood and obeyed, this alone would force us not to be judgmental. Wisdom does not give birth to a judgmental state of mind, which is based on part knowledge, combined with a faulty use of our mental powers, all of which often leads to what’s un-Islamic.

Please visit my website for an expanded definition of the word “judgmental” and the release of a brand new edition of Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive? The website address is: www.writtentestimony.com.

Some of us are so judgmental that we’ve decided the ultimate worth of others and then with supreme arrogance we’ve determined their place in Allah’s mind. Then we influence others to treat them according to our judgment. The “Jesus” warn us that with what judgment that we judge we shall be judged!

This state of mind opens us up to Satan’s deceptions. One trick of the wicked is to get you to agree or to cooperate on something that they know you know they know. They start you out on something that appears harmless.

Consider this illustration from This Is The One (Third Edition), page 170, where the F.B.I. is speaking to Malcolm.

“Agent: ‘What we are interested in, basically, are the people who belong. The names of the members.’

“Malcolm: ‘From what I understand, you have all that.’

“Agent: ‘No comment. The teachings, plans, programs.’”

“Malcolm: ‘No teaching is more public than ours and I don’t think you will find anybody more blunt in stating it publicly than we do. I don’t think you can go anywhere on this earth and find anybody who expresses their views on matters more candidly than we do.’

“Agent: ‘I can only agree with you. You are right.’”

This approach is one of the methods of wickedly intentioned and motivated people, white, black, or otherwise.

Now, how would you like to be jailed, found guilty, and sentenced to death on the basis of assumptions, misinformation, jealousy, envy, self-righteousness—not to think of outright lies?

If we are truly with Minister Farrakhan, we’ll take his study guides much more seriously now than ever. He takes up those problems that produce unjust divisions among us, and which stunt our spiritual development, without which God won’t want us! None of us are so good that we don’t need to re-enter this study, in the way he ordained it, RIGHT NOW!

One of the signs that Minister Farrakhan is truly of God is that as he draws the hearts of human beings toward the Lord of the worlds and the Christ, he also draws human hearts one to another. There are others who claim that they are with Minister Farrakhan in this work. But if your work does not draw hearts toward God’s definition of unity, you are drawing people into Satan’s trap.

Satan asked to be respited “till the day when they are raised.” After Allah granted that to him, Satan said “I will certainly lie in wait for them in Thy straight path, Then I shall certainly come upon them from before them and from behind them, and from their right and from their left; and Thou wilt not find most of them thankful.” Study Holy Qur’an 7:14-18.

Allah did not say that Satan would not succeed. He did say, “Whoever of them will follow thee, I will certainly fill hell with you all.” Allah is Self-Independent.

Both demonic and divine works are occurring at great speed—simultaneously. Satan is working overtime to take all he can to that hell Allah promised him. The raising of the dead is also happening, despite Satan and his helpers.

Several TV documentaries appeared this year about the American government’s work against the Black Panthers years ago. The Nation of Islam, among others, suffered that then and now.

The wicked, both black and white, have speeded up their evil work, externally and internally, to destroy the Nation right now. However, what ultimately guarantees that the Nation of Islam will not ever fall again is the limitless wisdom and power of Master Fard Muhammad. He and the Messiah are using your plans to serve Theirs.

The Backers of Minister Farrakhan are both the irresistible force, powered by the immovable object. This is not silly talk intended for laughter, or if spoken, to get a handclap.

This is not that silly talk that is written of in 2 Timothy 4:3-8, which speaks of the rise of hypocrites, especially at this time. This passage contains a second prophecy of a man being rewarded by God despite them. Both prophecies are being worked out now.

It’s written in Jeremiah 30:7, that this “day is great, so that none is like it. It is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.”

We have through Minister Farrakhan, from his Backers, the realization of what is called, in 2 Peter 1:19, the “more sure word prophecy” which is a “light shining in a dark place.” “Dark” here refers to spiritual squalidness. Read it in context, as we are living through this now. Minister Farrakhan’s teachings of the Holy Qur’an, if understood, is “The Sure Truth.”

This is this world’s New Years’ eve. Tomorrow many make New Years’ resolutions. Consider this: reduce assumptions. Satan uses them against us. Read Holy Qur’an 17:53 and it’s footnote, before it’s too late.

Read 2 Peter 2:9,10. It’s about you. The light of faith (Holy Qur’an 57:12) allows the Believers to see through trouble by Allah’ permission.

Take Minister Farrakhan’s faith and attitude as your guide through the trouble.

What is mercy?

More next issue, Allah willing.
