Today, August 21st, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney was defeated in her effort to be re-elected for another term in the Congress of the United States of America. But I believe her defeat at the polls may prove to really be a victory of greater value. Sounds silly? Strange? Paradoxical? Not really, for Allah is at work.
It’s written in more than one book of the Bible that God’s work would often seem strange to the people at the end of the world.
The principles in the deepest of paradoxes, as defined in this series of articles, applies with far greater significance in the life, mission, teachings and work of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and in the lives of the Black people of America, than what most historians and other scholars would dare to even consider.
After the indigenousness people of America were brutalized and forced into slavery by the Spaniards, Black people were enslaved by the millions on millions and tens of millions to work by the White race in what was then called the new world. Blacks helped America to become the most powerful nation this world has ever seen, in the last 6,000 years. What was really at work?
“Really” means, “in fact or in reality, especially as distinct from has been believed until now.”
Is it really true that God permitted Black people to be enslaved in America that we might help her become the fulfillment of that which ancient Egypt was a sign of today—God’s greatest opponent—even though most Americans don’t yet see this?
Could it really be that we were under extreme pressure, to be made to be the people through whom the Messiah would come, as it’s written in America’s best selling book, the Bible?
Could it really be that America’s only way to live beyond this, the most critical of all times, is to heed the words of two of her ex-slaves: the modern Moses and Aaron of today—the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan? Could it really be that Jesus and Paul are also two powerful signs of these same two men?
If this is really so, then everyone has to thoroughly re-assess everyone, everything and all that we ever knew and do it right away!
There is much that should have already compelled everyone to re-examine whatever we’ve thought of these two men, their teachings and work, if we’ve thought unfavorably of them. However, if you are one who sees them with any degree of accuracy, don’t stop there.
In the sixth chapter of Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive???, Minister Farrakhan stated: “In education there is a thing that is called a ‘plateau of learning.’ When one reaches a plateau of learning, and stops there, the process of learning stops and the process of intellectual death begins.”
Ponder this statement from a book titled, “Life and Death In The New Testament” the subtitle of which is, “The Teachings of Jesus and Paul,” by Xavier Leon-Dufour. It reads:
“In his account of the ministry of Paul, Father Leon Dufour describes a paradox often found in the life of Jesus’ disciples: that new life and possibilities arise, as God’s gift, from amidst misfortunes and setbacks.”
To better understand these particular paradoxes, we must grasp science and then enter certain sciences brought by God, which are beyond that which this world’s scientists know and teach. We must come to understand that we have entered the time the scriptures predicted, when God—The Greatest of all scientists—would come. He has arrived, so teaches Minister Farrakhan, as his teacher before him, as Moses and Aaron announced the presence of Jehovah in Egypt.
Despite the mighty efforts to hide the reality of God’s presence and work, by America’s scientists of propaganda, people from every area of this country are coming into the knowledge of His truth.
Minister Farrakhan represents that man—the Messiah—who was taught and trained by Almighty God, Who is bringing about the tremendous changes now taking place throughout America and the earth.
This is that time that the Bible and Holy Qur’an plainly tell the reader that an entire new world of thought and action would be introduced to the inhabitants of this world through the most wretched of humanity—the original people living in this country.
Many would deny that we are the most wretched. Among the things I heard one scholar state was that 75 percent of Blacks in America are in the “middle-income” bracket. That’s deceptive!
Wicked scientists, in Harvard and in other universities, are working to reduce the number of Blacks who were forced into slavery. They are with others who, in many slick ways, are trivializing what happened to Black people, during physical servitude, and up to today, when the deception of Black people is going on big time, day and night.
We, as a people, just don’t understand where we’ve come from, nor the real truth of the complex set of factors that has brought us to this point, nor the Master Mind Who started, fosters and is directing the course of our development.
The three Hebrew children, according to the Book of Daniel, were thrown into the fiery furnace, which became cool only on the appearance of “one like the son of man.”
We need a deeper understanding of science—scriptural and otherwise—lest we be like those who claim the bumble bee can’t fly, even as they watch it do so.
It is science, in the best sense of this word, that explains everyone and everything to us. And, without explanations, we cannot live our lives as we should or could. Today, from the wisdom of God, coming through the modern Moses and Aaron, we are learning, for the first time, the sciences of life.
Life often seems unfair, confusing and puzzling. However, what we may call paradoxes, puzzles and the like, is never that to Allah. The wiser we become the less confusing things get.
Good advances and evil retards our spiritual and moral development. Good brings us closer to Allah. Evil separates us from Him. Now, there are acts that are of God’s active will. Then there are acts that are of His permissive will.
Most aspects of His will are relatively easy to understand, although there is an ascending scale of knowledge and practice involved for their realization in our inward being. Then comes those aspects of His will that primarily involves those whom He uses for the benefit of humanity and whose impact is felt long after these very noble beings have passed. Allah’s prophets are in this special category of beings.
There are acts that God wills, which may seem different from the other acts He actively wills. These acts occur in exceptional instances, and are rare, in terms of the number of human beings in whose lives they occur.
We’ll conclude this set of points next issue, Allah willing, and show its relevance to the pregnant scientific truths Minister Farrakhan made in his May 1st interview.
It’s also relevant to his more-than-a-vision-experience, which occurred 17 years ago, on September 17, 1985.
More next issue, Allah willing.
