Unlocking the mind with divine truths from Allah

Farrakhan The Traveler by Jabril MuhammadTowards the end of my last article I wrote: “The more pure our motives are and the more intense our study is, the more rapid our progress can be. In this way, in a way of speaking, we can make up for lost time.”

In Vol. 19; No. 41 I wrote: “The wise ones, looking at these times, and at the strength of Satan’s deceit—right at the end of his power to rule—caused these words to be written in the Bible:

“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22)

“And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.” (Mark 13:20)

He has shortened them. However, it was also written in the scriptures that God Himself would lengthen the time that it would go to the full length of His mercy. He would provide the best means by which to grant everyone the opportunity to know His truth, His will, and His decisions before He opens the gates of His wrath in full.

It was written that He would be the Master of the day when He makes known His judgments. That day has arrived. Yet, most of the people are in denial.

Who is to do the shortening? What will or may happen that would cause this shortening? What does shorten mean to God Himself, Who will do this shortening?

Connected to this, are the words in the 31st problem of the Problem Book, from which I quote a part.

“A Lion in a cage walks back and forth, sixty feet per minute, seeking a way out of the cage. It took nearly four centuries to find the door. Now, with modern equipment, he is walking three thousand feet per minute and he has three thousand miles by two thousand miles to go yet.

“How long will it take him to cover this territory of said, three thousand by two thousand miles, at the above walking rate?

“Five thousand two hundred eighty feet equals one mile.

“He also has seventeen million keys, which he turns at the rate of sixteen and seventeen one-hundredths per minute. How long will it take him to turn the whole seventeen million?

“Sixty minutes equal one hour. Twenty-four hours equal one day. Three hundred sixty-five days equal one year.

“The above figures do not include rusty locks. It has been said by the Laborers of Islam, for allowing extra time to oil the rusty locks is insufficient.”

However, in the next Problem, we read, in part, that: “The Messenger and his Laborers are worried, for the time of Laboring is mentioned and limited in said, Problem No. 31.”

What do these words “mentioned and limited” mean?

Problem #32 continues: “One of the Prophets in the early days said: ‘The Lost Found Nation of Islam, numbering one hundred forty-four thousand, will be Stars, and will return to their original Land. And the Balance,” he said, “are poison and rusty, and will not take the Knowledge of their own.

“But the Messenger and his Labors do not agree with the old Prophet in this modern time. He thinks that he will remove all poison and rust from every one of the seventeen million. At the same time, he desires for every one of you Students to help solve this Problem since you have learned the time, accomplishment and old Prophet’s number (one hundred forty-four thousand).”

Further down we read:”What do we mean when we say, poison and rusty? What is the percentage of poison and rusty?” Then we read: “What means and methods shall be used to remove poison and rust from of said, the worst one?”

Let us not be careless in reading what we are reading. Who wrote these words?

When? Under what circumstances were they written? Why? Why did the Writer place His thoughts in this form?

Does this mean that the time must be extended?

What exactly is this “poison” and “rust?” What are the excuses that we put up or offer for not doing our duty—including “study”—which the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has repeatedly, urged us to do, in every honorable manner, which is for our own benefit and that of our loved ones?

Look in both the Bible and in the Holy Qur’an, where people also gave Allah’s divine servants, in their midst, the same kind of “defense mechanisms” in response to his beneficial requests.

How did such chief teachers of God’s word handle such situations?

Look at Minister Farrakhan’s track record involving “mixed feelings and controversy.”

Look into his Study Guides. We can—if we are not spiritually blind, if we are not jealous or envious of him—see his manner and example mirrored right there on the pages of the scriptures, in the lives and works of other servants of God, in such circumstances.

I also wrote in Vol. 19; No. 41 these words: “The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s work—which is beyond value—is to help Black people look in the mirror. Yes, the white man did this and that evil to us and still does. However, even the effects of his evils to us would fall into nothingness if we would accept the wisdom of God and His Christ that was put in Minister Farrakhan, by which he is guided.”

There are so many excellent things Minister Farrakhan has done to, for and by so many people, in so many different circumstances, so fast and in so many cities and even countries, that he seems like many men—or a whole army of men—all over the country, and world, some-times teaching millions overseas, from his desk by phone.

That’s a long sentence about a man with a long (global) reach!

What a valuable man! Yet there are those who want him on a cross, like the wicked did to Jesus.

There was no physical cross prophesied of, by Allah’s prophets, that the promised Messiah or the two Messiahs would be put on, when the first phase of their work was complete. (I’ve shown that they are Minister Farrakhan and his teacher.)

Look into the Greek words, from which the English words come, in John 19:25, which are “stood by the cross” and in verse 26, which are “standing by.”

The Greek language mostly gives a different meaning than that of people physically standing close to a physical cross, on which a man is hanging or is nailed.

“Stood by” means, in part, “to cause or make to stand, to place, to stand by, in the presence of others, in the midst, before judges, before members of the Sanhedrin; to make firm, fix establish; to cause a person or a thing to keep his or its place; to establish a thing, cause it to stand; to uphold or sustain the authority or force of anything; continue safe and sound, stand unharmed, to stand ready or prepared; to be of a steadfast mind; of quality, one who does not hesitate, does not waiver.”

The words “the cross” has among its meanings: “to cause or make to stand, to place, put, set; to bid to stand by, set up; in the presence of others, in the midst, before judges, before members of the Sanhedrin; to make firm, fix establish; to cause a person or a thing to keep his or its place; to stand, be kept intact (of family, a kingdom), to establish a thing, cause it to stand; to uphold or sustain the authority or force of anything; to stand; to stand immovable, stand firm; to continue safe and sound, stand unharmed, to stand ready or prepared; be of a steadfast mind; of quality, one who does not hesitate, does not waiver.”

And, “standing by” in verse 26 means, in part: “to place beside or near; to set at hand; to be present; to proffer; to provide; to place a person or thing at one’s disposal; to present a person for another to see and question; to present or show; metaphorically: to bring into one’s fellowship or intimacy; to present (or show) by argument, to prove; to stand beside, stand by or near, to be at hand, be present; to stand by; to stand beside one; to be at hand, stand ready; to stand by to help, to succor.”

These three words are even more intimately related than I have space here to show. Jesus made his statement in the way that he handled the “cross.”

He is showing how to overcome this evil world. So the believers must increase the power of their statement by standing up for him!

This is all related to the strong testimony the believers will give according to the 12th chapter of the book of Revelation.

This article ends with the way Farrakhan: The Traveler Vol. 19, No. 41 started:

“If we deny Him, He also will deny us, if we are faithless He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself.” (2 Timothy 2: 12,13)

More next issue, Allah willing.
