       Today we have a lot of work to do, a lot of work. The brothers have beautified my
board. I have said it again and again, the earth belongs to the Blackman. The white man’s
history is in the Bible, but it is cloaked over with symbolic language and teaching; therefore
you cannot understand it.

       The beginning of the white man was the beginning of a murderer. The Bible teaches you
that. Cain slew Abel. These were two brothers and the two brothers have been killing each
other every since they’ve been on the planet, right? Every few minutes, somebody is killed.
Every minute, almost, someone is being slaughtered by the devil or by his rule of tricknology
that is set up.

     He was given authority, knowledge, and wisdom to rule all life on the earth, in the sea
and in the air, for 6,000 years. As Jesus said, and I agree with it, the white man is the God of
this world. He’s limited to the time he is to rule. The time has arrived and passed by, giving
him or those he has deceived, a chance to repent, if they want.

      You and I were reared by the devil, in his hell. Since we were reared by the devil, it
takes an awful powerful teacher to get him out of you . He claims that his number is the
same as ours. It’s got to be the same as ours since we made him. He didn’t make himself.
We made him. The Holy Qur’an teaches us that the God of Islam, called Allah, which is His
most proper name, because Allah covers it all, but He being the Supreme One, they
distinguish Him by calling Him the Mahdi, an Independent God. He’s Self Sufficient. I want
you to know this God, of Whom the Holy Qur’an teaches us, is coming in the last day –
according to the 22nd Surah [chapter] of the Qur’an, with the name “Mahdi.” It means He’s
Self-independent.

       We must strive hard to set up self. Satan, the devil, is not going to take you and set you
down in his seat, get up and walk away from it; you’ve got to take him out of the seat. They
don’t tell you, but they know it.
They were made – not created – they were made, – m-a-d-e. The Bible teaches you that
they were made. It says, “Let us make man.” In the Holy Qur’an and Bible, “the make” was
condemned by the Black Scientists in those days. In the Qur’an, it’s got it very good there.
The scientist questioned the maker of the white man in these words; “What will you make
other than something to cause or rather to make mischief and cause bloodshed?” This he has

done and is still doing. In the Bible, the first-born from Adam killed another of them before
he was able to exercise any rule. Jealousy.

      Did you know that comes down through us today? If we would not envy and be jealous of
each other’s progress, we would have been a long way from where we are. Satan boasts that
he has the number of a man. He’s referring to us. He does have our number, because we
made him and not he made himself. He can’t make a man. They’ve been working on us every
since he had the privilege, but he just keeps coloring them up. That’s working with another
man’s material. So, I guess I’d better work with another man’s material too.
