Knowledge of TimeBy The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad | Last updated: Feb 21, 2017 - 3:14:53 PM
Remember the story of Moses and his people. Jehovah said to Moses: “I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and I have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows” (Ex. 3:7). Jehovah had seen and heard the afflictions and cries of His people, while His people were yet dumb to the knowledge of Him, for they called not on Him. They worshipped the gods of Pharaoh and his people and not Jehovah Who was the God of their fathers. Jehovah had not represented Himself as being the God of Pharaoh and his people. It was to the slaves of Pharaoh and the slaves’ fathers that Jehovah, their God, was to show mercy and deliverance.
Pharaoh was against Jehovah and His religion and the people of Jehovah who were his slaves. So it is and Allah’s true religion of Islam. But it is time that the mentally dead Negroes, who are afflicted daily by the evil hand of White America, should be delivered and given freedom, justice and equality and a land that they can call their own. Day and night their cries go up into the ear of Allah, the God of our people (the Muslims).
We cannot hope for justice from the devils when by nature there is none in them. All the day long the Negroes are mistreated. If Allah and I, His servant, will not stand up for them, who shall stand up for them? You, by far, are unable to do so; for you know not God. The devils have you afraid and worshipping that which you know not. Fear not and come follow me and God will love you and will set you in heaven at once while you live.
Jehovah told Moses to go first to the elders of Israel and say to them: “The Lord your God (not Pharaoh’s) the God of your fathers, He has appeared unto me saying, “I have surely visited you and have seen that which is done unto you in Egypt (America)” (Ex. 3:16). But the elders would not even meet with Moses, only by way of disputation.
