A Valuable Blackman, Part 12
From 1914 (which marked the end of the 6,000 years given to the Caucasian race to rule) to 1931 when Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad first met (in September) was 17 years. There were about 17 million Black people in America when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad began his work. Then began the initiation of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad into the actual knowledge of the Person and wisdom of The Supreme Being.
Now, at the beginning of this chapter, definitions of “marked” and “turning points” were given. These definitions are here repeated for the reader’s convenience.
The word “marked” as used here, according to various dictionaries, means: “to give a precise indication of; to give grounds for believing in the existence or presence of; an object or point that serves as a guide.”
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the definition of “turning point” that applies here is, “a point at which a decisive change of any kind takes place; a critical point, crisis.”
What we have been touching very briefly, to be looked at again a little later in this book, are those unseen factors behind what is visible of the person and work of a valuable Blackman—the Honorable Louis Farrakhan.
Again, 19 months after the fourth consecutive Saviour’s Day Convention, to be held by the Nation of Islam after its fall, under the leadership of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, he received direct communication from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, from the wheel. His vision was on the night of September 17, 1985—almost 50 years from the month (August 1935) when hypocrisy openly broke out against the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in actions of his blood brother. Two days later, he told this vision to his wife, Khadijah, and to Sister Tynnetta Muhammad. A few days later, he told me of this great event, in Phoenix, Arizona.
In her book, “The Comer By Night,” Sister Tynnetta Muhammad brought out a fact about the number 17, that is highly relevant to what we are looking at. On page 103 she introduces, in her book, the well respected Mr. Rodolfo Benavides and something of his research, which includes the significance of the number 17.
On page 105 of her book she wrote:
“According to Mr. Benavides, the number 17 is the number of initiation that leads to the inner mysteries structured or built into the Great Pyramid’s chambers.” Then on page 106 she wrote that, “According the Mr. Benavides, the number 17 is the number of initiation and leads to the inner mysteries. He has further calculated that it is exactly at the Great Pyramid’s 17th course stone, or step where the initiates enter into the study of the mystery of God locked up in the inner chambers and passageways of this huge monolith that now remains as the last of the Seven Great Wonders of the world.”
She also pointed out, on page 107 of her work that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad did teach:
“…that the Great Pyramid of Egypt contained in its structure measurements of an exact chronology of historical events and prophecies… .”
The Honorable Louis Farrakhan received a communication from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, at a time; in a place and in a way that marks another distinct turning point, which already has impacted the world in a profound way; even though most are unaware of this impact, and its implications, at present.
Although the vision contained practical matters of the highest order, which Minister Farrakhan acted on; taken as a whole it was an initiation, introducing him to something very, very new (and us through him). He is being taken to another higher level. This is for his benefit and for the benefit of many others.
Aside from these vital considerations there is a specific component to consider at this point. In his vision he was shown a scroll with words in English that he was not permitted to read at that time. In this author’s view it was of that which is entirely new; a wisdom out of this world. It has a correspondence to the newness now being divinely developed within him.
This is the time when Allah is “making” all things new. We who accept God’s truths today, and act on them are becoming new indeed—new creatures in Christ, as it is written.
During a press conference on October 24, 1989, in Washington, D.C., the Honorable Louis Farrakhan said:
“…I heard the voice of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad speaking to me as clearly as you are hearing my voice this morning.
“He spoke in short cryptic sentences and as he spoke a scroll full of cursive writing rolled down in front of my eyes, but it was a projection of what was being written in my mind. As I attempted to read the cursive writing, which was in English, the scroll disappeared and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad began to speak to me.”
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad informed his Minister, the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, before he departed in 1975, that he was going away to study. He said he would be gone for about three years. He warned his servant not to change the teachings while he was gone. And if he was faithful he would reveal the new teachings through him. That was continually put to the Minister.
In the vision, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told him that he had one more thing to do. Here are the Minister’s exact words: “ He said to me that he would not permit me to see him at that time. However, he said that I had one more thing to do and when that one more thing was done that I could come again to the Wheel and I would that the Honorable Louis Farrakhan is on the right path—the straight path—and is pleasing to his teacher. That vision, the things that the Honorable Louis Farrakhan did in obedience to the instructions he was given in the vision; and his success in getting back into America, in 1986, in a manner that yet astounds government officials, is clear evidence of the extraordinary value of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, to his teacher and to millions of others. His value will become clearer to anyone else who takes the time to study, carefully assess and form a balanced judgment respecting this very special Black man.
The Teacher of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave him a Holy Qur’an written entirely in Arabic. That was in the 1930s. He could not read it. Then his Teacher gave him the Muhammad Ali translation and then the Yusuf Ali translation, both of which have English text. Why would He give His servant a book in a language He knew he could not read? It was to put something on His servant’s mind for the future.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad made clear that his real mission had not yet begun. He made very clear that his Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad, had written a book, which had guidance in it for a world that did not yet exist, except in His mind. This new world is mentioned in the Bible as that which eyes had not seen; ears had not heard; nor had it ever entered the heart of anyone to conceive of what God had in mind to produce in the new world—His kingdom—which He will bring in.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad is now in an exalted state, both spiritually and physically. From that state and place he has, and yet guides the Honorable Louis Farrakhan. He is preparing him, as he was prepared, for that which is new. (We are all being prepared.)
Every bit of what is being divinely done for, to, and through the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, is for the benefit of every Black and Native “American” man, woman, child, and others too; if they choose to take advantage of it
Indeed, this brilliant, articulate, powerful, bold—in an un-aggressive way—mannerable, studious; yes, and even beautiful Minister; the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, is indeed a very valuable Black man.
As we will see his value is a sign of the value of the rest of us.
More next issue, Allah willing.
