Black and White America both suffering loss because of rebellion, yet prophecy is being fulfilled


CHICAGO ( - The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan declared that Black and White America are both suffering loss because of their rebellion to the will of God and refusal to act in accord with the requirements of the time, during the third part of a planned 52-week online lecture series titled “The Time and What Must Be Done” January 26.

“The people of the earth must know God is judging today, and he is going to make it so clear as to why he is judging and then give us that standard then command us to be in harmony with the requirements of the time that we might be successful and come through God’s judgment of this present world,” said Minister Farrakhan. “If we reject the knowledge of the time and go contrary to what must be done in accord with that knowledge, then our rejection will not only bring us loss, it will bring us death,” said the Minister.

“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has been chosen by Almighty God Allah in the person of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi looked for by the Muslim world and the great Masih or Messiah looked for by the Christians and the Jews,” said the Minister.

Once Master Fard Muhammad placed the Hon. Elijah Muhammad over his followers, and the teachings began to be made known, it created controversy among White people as well as among the followers who disagreed that the “scepter of rulership and guidance” had been given to him, however, the Whites did not take him lightly.

Minister Farrakhan delivered part 3 of a planned 52-week series titled “The Time and What Must Be Done” January 26.

The U.S. Government arrested the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and took all of the teaching that Master Fard Muhammad had given him, and began to study them. Then they knew, that he was that long looked for man that the world had been waiting for 2,000 years, the Minister said.

“No matter what you have done in the world of evil, what has brought the judgment of God on America and on you is what you have done and continue to do and plan yet to do with the people of God. He has chosen us to be his people as it is written, and he will be our God,” said the Minister.

God is “exceedingly angry” with Whites who have rejected the knowledge of the time, and displeased with the Blacks who have heard the knowledge of the time and refuse to unite and do something for themselves. “Both now are in the position to suffer more and more loss,” he added.

Prophecy fulfilled

The Minister said Black people in America fulfill Genesis 15:13, 14 which reads, “God said to Abram, ‘Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.’”

Black people are the people prophesied to receive God’s promise, he said again going into the scriptures, Deuteronomy 18:18, when God talks to Moses. The scripture says God is going to raise up a prophet like unto Moses and put divine words in the mouth of that prophet and command that divine servant to speak.

Pharaoh refused to heed God’s command through the mouth of Moses. Moses was told to separate the Children of Israel from the power of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. Pharaoh was arrogant, and did not believe that God had presented himself to Moses.

“That has happened in fulfillment of that prophetic symbolic picture in North America. The Great Mahdi, or Son of Man, made his appearance in America,” said the Minister. “He chose from among a people destroyed under the rule of this government of the United States of America—a leader for us, a teacher for us, a warner for you and the nation of the Earth.”

The Book of Malachi, meaning, “My Messenger,” in the last book of the Old Testament, the 4th Chapter, verses 4-6 says: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their father, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad is the fulfillment of those prophetic words, he said.

“Elijah has come, and Elijah is here to fulfill what is written of him, and if your door is still open, if your heart is open like your door, and if he has a place at your table, then you can escape the consequences of the world and civilization that you have been the architect of,” Minister Farrakhan said. “Elijah is present, and now, Elijah is the one that is teaching you the time.”

The wise of this world expected his coming, which is why J. Edgar Hoover worked to destroy the rise of a “Black Messiah” that would unite Black people. The government of the United State used their power against all Black leaders who spoke in terms that would engender Black Nationalism. The wise among Whites believe Blacks have become, as George Washington said “a troublesome species of property” but they don’t want to let Black people go with “a good send off.”

“This is making the God that came after us more and more angry, and as you are planning our death, he’s giving you some of what you plan for his people,” said the Minister.

At the same time, America’s financial condition is worsening, dissent is growing, race relations are tense, armed militias are expanding and assault weapons and ammunition are being sold in record numbers. This is a bad sign for America.

“There are those who argue, ‘well, it’s the 2nd Amendment that gives us that right to bear arms!’ Well, in discussing the 2nd Amendment you cannot discuss that amendment without discussing the context in which that Amendment was made a part of the U.S. Constitution,” said the Minister. “This is a serious, serious, mistake on the part of those who use it to say all of the American people have the right to bear the kind of arms that they’re being sold—but the arms that the American people are being sold are actual weapons of war!”

The Minister said in future broadcasts, he would like to deliver a message directly to White America.

“I want to talk to you about why you have been made, and the purpose of your life,” said the Minister. “Even though you have done evil on this planet, that evil was ordained by God.” he added.
