[Editor’s note:  The following article contains a distillation of the hour-long message delivered by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Part 19 of his 52-week Lecture Series “The Time and What Must Be Done.”  This message originally aired on Saturday, May 18, 2013.]


In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.



Greetings to you.  I am Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that Great Preacher of Freedom, Justice and Equality to the Black man and woman of America and the Western hemisphere, and the Aboriginal People of the Earth—The Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam, and a Warner to the people and the government of the United States of America, and the nations of the Earth.


My dear brothers and sisters, thank you once again for taking the time to study this 19th segment of the subject matter at hand:  “The Time and What Must Be Done.”

Last week we started on the subject of “making Satan known.”  I would like to repeat some of those scriptures to set the base, again, for where we pray that Allah (God) will Guide us to go.  Remember in 2 Thessalonians, Chapter 2:  “In that day shall not come except there be a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition” (verse 2).    And again, in verse 3, it goes on to say: “And that wicked one shall be consumed with the spirit of God’s mouth on the brightness of His coming…”—and “God’s Coming,” the scripture teaches in verse 9“is after the workings of Satan.”  So we have something here that we really need to look deeply into.

What does God come to do?  He comes to make Satan manifest.  As we discussed in Part 18, “Satan” is not a “spirit” of sin, but a man filled with “the spirit to rebel against God.”  And it is God’s Duty to The Human Family to expose Satan:  Pull him out from “under the cover,” make him known so that the people who have been deceived by Satan may, after knowledge of Satan, “fall away” from him; because Satan, being “the son of perdition,” is leading everyone that follows him to ruin, to loss, to desolation and to destruction!  The Holy Qur’an says in Surah 103 Al-’Asr (“The Time”):  “By the time!—Surely man is in loss, except you believe…”  “Believe” in what?  Believe in that which God will reveal of Satan—and of God Himself; and of “The Time and What Must Be Done.”  Well, that is a Big Assignment!

Satan already knew that he was going to be made known; so Satan is not “foolish.”  He is very, very wise, as the scripture teaches he is so skilled in The Art of Tricks and Lies that he will masquerade even as an “angel of light.”  In the scriptures, Satan is that “Tree in The Garden” that Adam was told to forsake, a “tree” of “The Knowledge of Good and Evil.” 

Now, “trees” don’t have knowledge of “good” and “evil.”  This is a man who was taught “righteousness,” but also was taught “The Teachings of his father Yakub”—a System of Tricks and Lies; that he might master The Original People out of which he was brought. 

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s false charge:  ‘The Nation of Islam is a hate group’

Satan knows that when you know him, you’re not going to love him.  When you know him, you’re going to dislike him.  Some will even hate him.  But in the “falling away”:  Once you get The Knowledge of Satan, once you get The Knowledge of his Divine purpose, once you get The Knowledge of his origin in the world, and how he became “Satan,” then you can “love him” or “hate him.”  It’s irrelevant with God.  So because Satan knew that “the end was nigh,” and that people are not going to like him, then the first thing Satan would do is to call the revelation of him “hate teachings.” 

Hate teachings…  Now, people don’t teach “emotion”; they either teach “truth” or “falsehood,” and an “emotion” can follow!  So The One Coming “after the workings of Satan,” Who tells the Truth of Satan”:  You’re already “in love with Satan,” so you might still love him!  But, The Truth of Satan will cause you to “fall away” from him, and then The Dislike of Satan will manifest. 

Knowing this, then let me address this “Southern Poverty Law Center” which has put The Nation of Islam out to the world as a “hate group”:  This is a predicate for evil that they intend to do to the Nation of Islam, and to me whose job it is to make Satan known!  Well, I have to do what God has commanded me to do.  And you have to do what you must do!  But, are we really a “hate group”—or is it that you hate the fact that your lying, your trickery, your deceit, your meddling, your snooping, your trouble-making, your mischief-making, your murder of The Human Family will be made known?!  I have to do what I have to do, Satan.  So you have to do what you have to!

Is the Nation of Islam really a “hate group”?  Can you imagine that “Satan,” now knowing that people are going to become aware of him:  He started in Europe, where you cannot say that “the Holocaust didn’t exist.”  You can say “God doesn’t exist,” and there’ll be no “penalty”; you can curse God, and there’ll be no “penalty”!  But if you say that “there is something wrong with the figures of The Holocaust”—if you disagree with the Jewish version of “The Holocaust,” that is considered a “hate crime.”  And in some European countries you can go to jail for such!  Well, they are trying to do the same thing in America. 

Satan:  You knew this day was coming…  So let us see who the real “hater” is!  Let’s see who the real “anti-Semite” is!  Because now since you call us a “hate group,” you’re going to have to prove it!  Because The Truth is not “hate,” it’s either “Truth” or “Falsehood.”  So, would you punish us for telling The Truth?  Of course you would, if this is your world, Satan!  But your “time” is up—your time to rule and deceive the people and the nations of the Earth is up! 

We are on time!  God is on Time!  And that’s why the scripture teaches His Coming is after the workings of Satan:  You are in our time now, so you will never be successful in our time!  You had your “day of success” in your time, and now God is interfering with your success because it is The Time of The End of your world and it is The Time of The Manifestation of “God” and “Satan”!

Lucifer’s weak contention with The Jesus and The Word that reveals his true identity

In the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 14, verses 12-17, let us now look at what Isaiah says of this “Wicked Satan.”  The scripture asks the question:  “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Luciferson of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?”

“Is this the man…”—so this is not talking about a “spirit.”  And Lucifer is another name for “Satan.”  In Latin, Luci means “light”; and “fer” is from the word fero, meaning “to carry” or “to bring.” 

And look at how Satan is referred to as “the son of the morning”:  Oh, this is something to consider!  Because “the darkest hour is just before the dawn”; and as Jesus said in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 22verse 16:  “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star”:  So Jesus rises at “the end of the night” of The 6,000 years of The Darkness of The Rule of Satan, leading man up into The Perfect Light of The Sun [“Son”], or The Light of God Himself.  But Lucifer is rising with him!  Remember, he is a “bringer of light,” so he, then, is competing with The Jesus Who is making him known! 

“Lucifer”/“Satan” is in “competition”:  He is the one that weakened the nations…  But he cannot rise higher than Jesus, nor can he rise higher than The Morning Star that takes us right up into The Sun, like Venus; and gets lost in The Light of The Sun, so that you cannot tell one from the other.  So just as when you see “Venus,” you are looking into “The Light of The Sun”:  When you see Jesus you see The Father, for The Father is in him and he is in The Father!


But this “Lucifer,” “son of the morning”:  “How art thou cut down to the ground who didst weaken the nations?”  Well, Lucifer, now you are contending with this Word.  What a weak contention… 

And to the three of youMr. Abraham Foxman [National Director of the Anti-Defamation League “ADL”], Mr. Mark Potok [Spokesman and Director of Publications and Information for the Southern Poverty Law Center], and Mr. Harold David Brackman 

:  Your very weak answer to what we are saying only shows you have no “arguments” to defeat The Truth.  So the only thing that you have is your power to misuse and to mislabel through your power with the media, your power with Black leadership, your power with Black preachers, your power with Black intellectuals, and your power with Black sports and entertainment figures!

So you will say that “Farrakhan is a hater,” “The Nation of Islam is a hate group,” and “They are anti-Semites,” but we are now asking:  “Will The Real ‘Anti-Semite’ stand up!”

The Original Speakers of Semitic languages and ‘The Grafting of White out of Black’

What is a “Semite”?  According to the dictionary, a Semite is “a member of any of the peoples who speak, or spoke, a Semitic language”—but it then adds this to the definition: “including, in particular, the Jews and the Arabs.”  That’s a rather “deceitful” definition—let us point out the deceit in that definition!  Because today we would like to enlighten you on whom the real “Semitic people” are, if you’re going to use that definition. 

“Anyone who speaks the Semitic language”:  Well, what is the “Semitic language”?  You say it is Arabic and Hebrew, but let me ask you the question, “When did you learn Hebrew and Arabic, and from whom?”  Certainly you are not The Original speaker of such language!  The original people of that area are not “White,” the original people of that area are Black. 

And The Original Language of The Original Man is Arabic; and a dialect of that is Hebrew.  So where did you get it?  How did you get it?  In the Bible, I want you to consider how God created everything so powerful, and so independent!  The 1st Chapter of the Book of Genesis opens with:  “And the earth was without form and void, and God said, Let there be light, and there was light.  And He separated the light from the darkness, and one part he called ‘day,’ and the other part He called ‘night.’”  And then He goes on, and He creates.  He’s not asking “help” from anybody; He just creates.  Then in the 26th verse, we find “weakness” here:  “And God said, Let Us make man after our image, after our likeness, and let Us give them power and dominion.”  Well, that “God” is a little weaker than The God that created everything independent!  What “God” is this that said, “And let Us”—not make another “God” as such, let’s—make man, and make him in Our image, and after Our likeness”

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that The God that spoke like that is The Father of the White race; his name is Yakub.  In the scripture he’s called “Jacob.”  Not righteous Jacob; this is the “Jacob” that wrestled with the angel, and prevailed.  And after he wrestled and prevailed, his name was changed from “Jacob” to Israel

Mmm…  We’re coming up on you now, Mr. Satan


How did you get here?  By what process were you made?  The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said you were grafted out of The Original Black Man.  Your own scholars bear witness to this Truth!  Your scientists are now agreeing with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that the Caucasian people are a new people on our planet; and they have brought their figures in line with The Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad:  “6,600 years ago.”  Well if that is so:  Is that a teaching of “hate”?  You said that the thing that causes us to be listed as a “hate group” is our teaching on “Yakub.”  My question to you is:  Can you, with all of your scientists, disprove what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has said of you? 

You’re not an “ancient” people; you’re a new people on our planet!  You had to have a “place of origin,” and you had to have a “source” from which you originated!  You even put out a movie called Children of Lesser God…  And Yakub was a “God” all right, but he was a lesser God to The God Who originated the heavens and the Earth, and all in between.  You are a scientific experiment that we did with ourselves to see whether “evil” had the same power as “good.” 

Please study the monumental book by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad titled Message To The Blackman in America, in the Chapter titled “Devil” beginning on page 100.  There, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches that Yakub saw the Brown Germ in The Life Germ of the Black man; a Black Germ and a Brown Germ.  And Yakub said that if he could separate that Brown Germ, he could drive it into its last stage, and clothe it with flesh, and give it form and expression—and that Mr. Yakub did! 

Yakub was born 20 miles outside of the city of Mecca in Arabia.  Go to the Book of Habakkuk, Chapter 3; it said: “God came from Teman, and the holy one from Mount Paran—these are two cities in Arabia.  And the Honorable Elijah Muhammad asked:  “Which one of these two would you take for your lord?  The god that came out of Teman?  Or the holy one from Mount Paran?”  Arabia is The Birthplace of Yakub, and it is where he taught the 30 percent who were dissatisfied to follow him.  But the rulers of Arabia would not allow him to make his people on that peninsula, so they assigned him to The Island of Pelan, or Patmos, in the Aegean Sea.  And there he took his followers, and The Process of Grafting “White” out of “Black” began. 

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said it took 600 years; that The Process was a “Birth Control Process,” a “Selective Breeding Process,” where you “marry the lighter onto the lighter”; and you “kill the darker, save the lighter”; “marrying the lighter onto the lighter.”  And after 200 years, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said God revealed to him, that there was a Brown Civilization on our planet.  And 200 more years of that same Process, a Yellow Civilization was in existence.  And 200 years after that—that same Process continued for 600 years, and at the end of that time there was a blond-haired, blue-eyed creature on our planet that is called “The Caucasian.” 

After you were made, you still had The Language.  It is a Semitic Language, it is Arabic—you were speaking that Language. …Arabia was your home.  But now you’re “a new creature”; and you go back into Arabia, and you start using some of the Tricknollegy that you were taught by your Father, Yakub.  And within six months you had the Holy Land turned upside down.  So the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that they started questioning, “When did this problem arise among us, that they were causing us to fight and kill one another by telling lies?”—and you do the same today!  Everywhere you go, you start pitting one against the other, telling lies, dividing and conquering!

Well those days are over.  Now it’s your time to suffer the consequences of your evil.  And even though there’s a chance for you to escape those consequences, because what you did was Divinely given to you to do—and you have fulfilled your role; now, The Mercy of God is asking you if you would like to be a part of that which He makes new, or do you still want to fight God over your “place”?  If you do, this is your end.

‘Pushing out’ and ‘pushing down’:  Same act now committed against darker peoples of the Earth

Now, when you were in Arabia, after you were made Caucasian and you started making trouble there, the King rounded up all that we could find, and drove you across the desert, 2,200 miles into the hills and the cavesides of Europe where you went absolutely savage.  It was 2,000 years that you were in the caves and hillsides of Europe until Moses came to civilize you.  But the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that some of the Caucasians were hidden by the Original People in Arabia, and they grew right up under us.  And your Bible teaches you in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 2 that:  “the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were fair, and took them to be wives”—and “race-mixing” began on the Arabian Peninsula. 

By the time Moses came there were hundreds of thousands, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, of Caucasians on that Arabian Peninsula!  And one among them was a King among them; he was called Pharaoun…  And he was so smart and so tricky, he was about to trick the king of Arabia!  But they caught up with him and his tricks, and they were about to destroy them; they said, “You have to leave here…,” so they asked the King, Pharaoun:  “Where would you like to go?” And he said he would like to go to Egypt.

It wasn’t called “Egypt” at that time, but that’s how the Caucasians got into Egypt:  They were sent there.  And then The Pharaoh of Egypt enslaved them!  And Moses, then, had Two Jobs:  1) He had to bring the cavy out of “West Asia,” Europe as it is now called; and 2) He had to guide the Caucasians that were in Egypt out of Egypt—they were just a few hundred thousand in number. 

They were not the “seed of Abraham,” mind you.  These were those who would present “a sign”—that is all—of “a great enslavement” that would take place near the end of the time of the rule of the Caucasians, when “The Children of Israel” would suffer in bondage 400 years.  I am not speaking of those that were exiled to what is now called “Egypt”—no!  These were Caucasian people; tricky people!  People that began to create trouble wherever they went.


Now look at The Middle East, now, in Palestine:  The original Palestinian was Black.  The original Arabian is Black.  The original Iraqi is Black.  The Original People of that whole area are Black!  But in the nature of the “being made,” “saving the lighter, killing the darker”—this is the process that goes on in our world today:  1) We favor the lighter-skinned Black man who is mixed with you; and 2) You push the darker brother or sister down. 

Where are the Black Palestinians?  They’re pushed out.  Where are the Black Arabians?  They’re pushed out.  Where are the real, Black Egyptians?  They’re pushed out.  So this race-mixing produced a lighter hue, and some maintained their Whiteness—but the same nature!  The same nature…  The Same Thought of “pushing out” or “pushing down”; or “suppressing the darker-skinned human being.”

To my beloved Muslim brothers:  You don’t want to admit that there’s racism in among the Arabs.  But I’ve been among you, and I have seen how the Black is treated…  So you’re going to have to repent too for what was done by you to the darker-skinned Arabs; to The Original Hebrews, to The Original Black people!  If we are the real “Semite,” then you who call us “anti-Semitic” are the real “Anti-Semite,” for you have been against the Black man since you came into existence from us.

The use of Language and Genetics to prove our charge of ‘The Real Anti-Semite’

Now it is time to look at how you, The Real Anti-Semite, have been “anti-” us:  First, it is repugnant [“offensive,” “unacceptable”] to us that you would say that we are from “Ham,” one of the sons of Noah; or that you were from “Shem,” one of the sons of Noah.  No!  Noah wasn’t even in existence when we brought you out of us. 

We are the real Semite if you want to use “language” and “genetics” as the base of your charge!  We are The Real “Semitic People,” and you are The Anti-Semite!  Look at what you’ve done…  “The Curse of Ham”:  Where did it come from?  It came from Jewish origins.  Evidence locates the origin of these racist elaborations with the Jewish Babylonian Talmud developed by rabbis between “375-499 A.D.”—this timeframe coincides with the development of The Nicene Creed of 325 A.D.; not in Palestine, but in Rome.  Jesus never used a “cross” to symbolize his Teachings.  He used a fish.  Where did the “cross” come in?  It was from Emperor Constantine who had a vision of 1) “a cross,” and 2) the sign in Latin:  In hoc signo vinces, which means “With this sign”—the cross—“we conquer.”

And this is why Pope John Paul II apologized to the Indigenous People of the Earth, because it was under that cross that you caused the pain and the suffering of the Indigenous People that came under the power of your rule!  It was under your cross that we were enslaved!  It was under your cross that you brought us out of Africa in The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade—one of The Greatest Crimes against Humanity, against a Semitic People, if you will.

The Real Anti-Semite:  Your power was derived from slavery!  Your power was derived from our production of cotton and tobacco, and the fruit of the ground that you used to become rich and powerful!  Will The Real Anti-Semite please stand up?  Some of your own scholars say you are not even connected to the land called “Palestine”!  That you, the Ashkenazi Jewish people are Europeans; and the “Ashkenazi” name comes from the Hebrew language, which roots back to German.  You didn’t speak Hebrew!  You spoke Yiddish—a dialect of German!  You came out of Khazaria; and you were the one that became a “convert” to Judaism!  Now look at your behavior since you have taken land from the Palestinians who have been there: 

The lighter-skinned, the light Mestizo, or “White-looking” Palestinians:  They’ve been there for centuries!  They’re The Real Semites, too!  Look at how you’ve treated them.

The Sephardic Jews, the darker-skinned Jews:  How are they treated in Israel?  The Falasha Jews:  How are they treated in Israel?  They are persecuted!

Look at what you’ve done to the Ethiopian women:  You’ve absolutely tried to limit, with drugs, their birth ability, under a “Birth Control Law.”  You tricked them into taking these drugs, or you would not even allow them to enter into Israel!

You don’t even want the darker-skinned Jews in some of your schools!  You have “highways for Jews”—these Khazarian Jews, these Ashkenazi Jews, these White European Jews!  You have a “highway for the Palestinians,” and a highway for yourself!  You are the master of segregation!  The master of “separate this” and “separate that”!  Because that’s how you were formed: By “separating the Brown Germ from the Black Germ.” 

You brought that to South Africa!  You brought it to America!  And we have suffered under American apartheid which you sanctified by “The Hamitic Curse,” that we were “doomed” to be “hewers of wood and drawers of water” of White people; that we were to be your servants, your slaves!  And the only thing Mr. Brackman said that the Jews agreed on was:  “The inferiority of the Black man.” 

How dare you write us down as “the hater,” when your life in America, your life in Africa, your life in the Holy Land, is one of “segregation,” “separation,” “hatred,” “murder,” “lying,” and “stealing land from the original Palestinians”?  Will the real “anti-Semite”—will the real hater please stand up!  It is you, Mr. Foxman!  It is you, Mr. Potok!  It is you that masquerade as “The Chosen People of God”!  You have stolen our identity…  And now The Truth has come, and Falsehood must vanish!  We are here to take back our identity. 

Yes:  America is The Real “Israel” and The Whites are The Real “Israelites”!  Study “The Seal of America.”  Connect those 13 stars, and you will see “The Star of David,” six (6) angles; six (6) sides of sixty (6) degrees.

Satan:  The time is now to prove your charge that Farrakhan

is teaching ‘hate’!

Who are you?  I am not talking to those Jews who practice the faith of Judaism, I am talking to the so-called Jews who are Satanic.  Look at what you’ve done to this country:  1) We can show how you rule Hollywood; 2) We can prove how you are the king of the media; 3) We can show and prove that you own most of the publishing houses, that you own most of the record companies that have these Black rappers in their filthy language saying things against their Black woman, and glorifying a life of crime and drugs!  You permit it!  And 4) We can show, and prove, that in your “Hollywood,” you place us in such a degraded state that even in 2013 you have us acting like “Stepin Fetchit” and these figures of yesterday, making mockery of us!  You use our women in film as though they are tarts!

You know what you do!  But it is for us to point out “The Footsteps of The Devil”—and to say to our people not to follow in their footsteps, for their footsteps are leading to perdition!

Now will you say that Farrakhan is teaching “hate”?  Then bring me before your courts of law, and prove your charge, because you cannot disprove The Science of your being grafted out of us for a time.  In fact, study in the Bible the Book of Romans, Chapter 11, where it teaches about this “grafting.” 

In verses 16-17:  “For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root is holy, so are the branches.  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou—meaning you—“being a wild olive tree—it’s talking to The Caucasian people—“were grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and the fatness of the olive tree.”  See, you were grafted in among us, and now you are sucking from the life of the riches of the lands of the Black and the Brown, and the Yellow Man!  Right now, AmericaEngland and France:  You are sucking the life out of Africa!  Mr. Mugabe said last week the Western world is there to enrich themselves from the riches of Africa, now.  You want China out!  You want Russia out!  Well, we want all out that are The Bloodsuckers of the riches of our people.  Then, in verse 21 it states:  “If God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee”; but before that, in verse 18 it tells you:  “Don’t boast against the branches, for you didn’t bare the root, but the root bore you.” 

You “boast,” and speak evil of The Black man!  But you came from The Black Man!  And that is why Jesus told Nicodemus:  “Except you be born again, you will not see the next world”—but that “door” is closing fast—you can be brought back to The Original, if you allow The God of The Sabbath to be your guide.  You have to reject your father…  And you say it in the Catholic teachings:  “Do you reject Satan, and all his works?” 

You have to reject your father who taught you “Tricks and Lies,” and “How to Master The Original Man,” and submit yourself to God.  Then if it pleases Him, He will make you, and us, into “a new creature.”

Future broadcasts:  ‘The favor shown upon Jews’ in their reaching ‘the pinnacle of success’

So my beloved brothers and sisters, I repeat, in closing:  If you use the term “Semitic” as referring to “those who speak The Semitic Languages,” then Arabic and Hebrew come from The Original People Who are The Black People of the Earth.

And because you “speak a language,” it doesn’t make you what those who originated that Language are:  Some of you are learning Chinese.  Does that make you “Chinese”?  Some of you are learning Russian.  Does that make you a “Russian”?  Some of us are studying Spanish and French—we’re not Frenchman, nor are we Spaniards!  So don’t tell me when you speak Hebrew, and you speak Arabic, that you now “belong” to The Semitic People! 

Oh Israel:  You’re in deep trouble.  I fear for you; and I fear for my people that are there.  May Allah Guide us.  May Allah Bless us.  May Allah Protect us.  And you that listen to these broadcasts:  “Tweet” what you can of what I say; and argue with the people in the best manner, for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has given to us an Invincible Truth that none of their scholars can uproot.  “White came from “Black”:  There is no doubt about it.  The “God” who made you is a “Lesser God”—but a “God” right on!  And now God has come, and He’s waking up The Gods of The Earth…  And now we are challenging you to prove your charge, or you must get out of this the best way you can.  We are The Original People of our planet:  We have not done any violence to you—and we don’t intend to.  God is Sufficient. 

So we will continue this subject matter next week, when, by The Grace of God, I want to show you how “favored” the Jewish people have been, and how they have reached “The Pinnacle of Success.”  The question is:  “How will you use The Success that you have attained?”
