by Master Elijah Muhammad


         Now you see how much time I have spent trying to lead you up to the subject I intend to
take. I have led you up near the steps which I wanted to and now see you walking. I know
one thing, you can’t go in the common church today and listen to the preacher three hours if
he takes a text.


        God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and preach; for in forty days I will destroy her. What
does forty days mean, since the city was not destroyed and He told Jonah to preach what He
bid him? What did He mean by that? Don’t deny one truth regardless to how foreign or how
strange it looks or even may be the end of your life to tell the people that, go tell them that.
If I gave them an extension of time, don’t grieve over that extension of time. You have some
people way in the distant future that needs an extension of time, but you don’t know them


          So, today, the time of our enemy was up in 1914, but God could not kill him without
killing us, because we as yet had not come into the knowledge of the truth. They must know
the truth and if they know the truth, the truth will free them. I don’t have to kill them-think
over that. This truth is to give you knowledge of yourself and knowledge of the enemy devil,
the blue-eyed Caucasian.


       My young brothers, do not grab these blue-eyed girls of his. They are doing this today to
get you away from the God of your salvation. The girl has been taught a long time, so when

this day came, she would sweetheart with you and blind you to the knowledge of the time, so
you won’t recognize what she’s doing. She will make you think that we just now realized that
we have to live as one people, and you yet blind, will say, “yes, yes, that’s right;” but no,
understand what she means: that the time have arrived now that I will make you to think
that I’m in love with you. I will marry you, you will marry me, but you are headed for hell. I
will try enticing you, work on the very nature of you. I will go nude in front of you – think
over that. He gives them the woman, corrupting themselves, that’s here in your Bible.


       My beloved brothers, I say flee from her. She is a universal Delilah. That’s in your Bible.
See how Delilah deceived Samson, the strongest man. You are the strongest man. You are
yet the wisest man, but no one has brought you back to the wise wisdom of yourself and the
strength you can produce to make others succumb at your feet.


         This little atom, God raised up from you to teach you these things. There is nothing
secret now about them. God has revealed the secret of them and that secret is in the head
of the man that you’re looking at now [Elijah Muhammad]. They are made unalike to attract
you. Their father, Yakub, who made them, he was the founder of unalike attract and alike
repel. The only way He can get his people to attract you is to get them before you who are
made unalike. This unlikeness will attract you. So, they’re using this boldly today to get you
to go to hell with them. They know they can’t overcome the Black God. They know that,
because He made them. He tells his women, “Go now and attract them. Tempt them so they
will believe with us and become deserving of hell fire like we are. This is what He’s doing.


         You could never be one of them. You could only believe them and follow them, but you
could never be one of them unless you were grafted out of your present self, into what they
are in. By your marrying and intermixing with them, that yet will never drive you out. You
will become speckled white, but actually, the blood which has the origin of what you are
can’t be destroyed so easily as that. We’ll tell you why, we will tell you.


     We have the roots of everything. We have the root of the universe. I don’t want you to
get excited and throw stones at me, because I speak of that which you never dreamed of
hearing; however, it is the truth.
