The Days of TroubleBy Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad | Last updated: Mar 28, 2014 - 2:31:52 PM
Allah (God) created for Himself a heaven and then He let it out to a foreigner (White race) for them to enjoy themselves in it for a while.
They have proved unworthy of such glorious creation, and now the God Who is the owner of this heaven and earth is ready to take over and rule it for Himself.
Never no more, will the earth nor the heavens of the earth be let out, to non-owners.
It is a great wisdom, taught to us, in letting new creatures (White race) try their knowledge of mastering that which they were not made to master — which we knew, when we made them, that they would not be able to master the original creation for long.
For as long as we, the Black people, are of the planet, there is no new creature that could be put in order for ruling that which we already have, and we are in it.
It is such a wise piece of work that has been done. The wisdom, knowledge and understanding of the originator of this creation is just.
This race, the White race, has not been successful in ruling according to their will, and according to a real owner, for the White race had to use the originator’s material that He Himself had created.
There is nothing of which the White man can call himself the creator.
So, therefore, since the White man continued to make trouble, which by nature he was made to do, we do not see any way out of trying to live with the White man in peace.
The nature of the White man is ever causing unrest among themselves and among us too. The White man just cannot make peace for himself, because of his nature.
Today, God has decided that we, the Black people, cannot get along with the White man in peace, and that the White man must be removed.
The White race wanted to remove us. the Black people. But in order for the White man to remove us (the Black man) he would have to remove the whole entire heavens and make the heavens void of anything like life.
Then from a void we would have to start all over again and create life, for the life in the universe is life that we, the Black people, have established.
Therefore, to get away from our own life, (which was created by the Black man) so that a new life could come in. we would have to rid the space of life, which belongs to us. the Black man — and when the space was rid of the life that we (Black people) had created, another one would have to create life of his own making.
We, the poor Black people here in America, must be changed into a new and different people altogether, so Allah God Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, taught me.
But, not a complete make of us — we will be renewed from what we are in now — and we call it a new thing. There will come a day when we (the Black people) will have a completely new thing for man and earth and the heavens above us! But, according to the scientists. God will cause this to grow into a new thing — not a complete destruction of the old where there is no root to grow something from — not at this time’.
The things that Allah (God) would like to do now, and will do, is to destroy the works of the devil — as the devil would like to destroy God’s work, which God has created.
The devil cannot destroy God’s creation because the devil had no part in the creation of the first creation. Since the devil had no part in the first creation, this makes the devil unable to lay hold to the power that would destroy the first work (of God).
The main thing, which I keep mentioning enough to make you disgusted is — something for the Black man in America, who has spent his life long in sleeping, in ignorance of the knowledge of that which he is in.
But as soon as the Black man can awaken to the knowledge of this that he is in, then he can lay hold to that which he did not have knowledge of, which is that the Black man is the creator of the first creation.
Allah (God) wants to put the Black man back into power and the way the Black man can be put back into power is: Allah has to make the Black man all over again to master the power after giving the Black man the authority.
Look at the poor once-pitiful Black man in America — look at how he strives to reach for himself, and is now making a fast progress in that which God leads for Him to Understand —
The Black man’s conversation is changed — the Black man’s way of thinking is changed — his actual physical form is changed — It is a great thing that has come to the Black man in America. The Black man in America is getting happier and happier.
It is not hard for the Black man in America to get rich, for he is getting rich from his own wisdom. No one has given him anything.
As the Bible teaches you of the Prodigal Son — ‘no one gave unto him, but he is getting rich, so fast, that God chooses the Prodigal Son to become the head of the house that he strayed away from!
The future of the Black man is so beautiful that we can hardly comprehend it! The biggest thing that stands before us is qualification — and readiness. Let us get qualified to master the house that God is giving to us, before someone tries to rob us of that mastering of the house. If they rob us of the mastery of the house, I am sorry for us.
I say to you, Black Brother and Black Sister, do not be foolish. The kingdom of heaven will be given to you and to me. Have patience to receive it.
But, to get the house into our service, it is like a mother giving birth to a baby — the baby must mature in that which he is in. As a baby matures in the womb of the mother in order to be born, so the Black Man must mature to be born into a new world that the Black man must build himself. These are the days of trouble.
