Farrakhan delivers dire warning in this week’s installment of ‘The Time and What Must Be Done’

CHICAGO ( - The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered a clear message to the government and people of America February 2, in the fourth installment of his planned 52-week series titled, “The Time and What Must Be Done.”

“You can’t fight God and win!” declared Minister Farrakhan. “He turns nature against you and he’s doing that as we speak!”

Minister Farrakhan said there are many things being done by the American government that are not in the best interests of the American people. Although there may be some who desire to speak out, many are afraid of the consequences, but he is not, because of his divine backing.


“You don’t like what I’m saying and you wish I would stop and some of you will try to stop me, that’s entirely up to you, but remember, when you plan against me, the plan is already against you, and to prove it, he’s going to increase the calamities shortly after you hear this message. ”

The Minister has said repeatedly that it gives him no pleasure to tell the American government and its people what terrible things are to come, however, he is commanded by God to speak as he does. In a world suffering under the “blinding touch of Satan,” God would raise one with the strength and courage to tell the truth to the people. A truth that would not only free Black people from oppression, but also free White people from the deceptive practices of those in power that manipulate world events to benefit the few to the detriment of the many.

“The scripture says that Satan deceived the whole world. This is because the people did not know Satan and they didn’t have a correct knowledge of God, for the revelation of one is the revelation of the other,” he noted.

The Mahdi and the Messiah

Revisiting a portion of the previous week’s message, the Minister, talked more about the identity of the Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad.

“The Great Mahdi whom the Islamic scholars admit is coming into the world is a human being, born of a woman, but anointed with the power to crush the wicked,” said the Minister. “Crushing the wicked is the power of God in a human being. God has every right to give to a human his power, as long as that human uses that power in his name by his permission,” he added.

The Mahdi of the Muslims is the same as The Christ of the Christians because he is “anointed with power,” said the Minister.


“He didn’t anoint himself. The ever-living God anointed The Mahdi with the power to sit down every tyrant and to set justice in the Earth,” he added. “When God comes, he has to come with the power to sit Satan down, to destroy his world, but the first thing God does, is to raise up a man that is referred to in the Holy Qur’an as well as in the Bible as Masih or Messiah.”

He continued by saying The Messiah is also born of a woman, and taught the wisdom of the Bible, the Holy Qur’an. It is by that wisdom, he enlightens the people who are suffering and performs miracles by God’s permission.

“There is no life-giver but God himself, so when a human being enters the world and is given that authority and that power to open the eyes of the blind, make the deaf hear, the dumb speak, and raise the dead to life by God’s permission—God then is present in that human being.”

Death and destruction

America and the world of the wicked is being judged today because of the actions of those given power and authority to rule. They have ruled the planet with brutality, bloodshed and deception, using the guiding instruction set of White supremacy. Once let loose from Europe, White people—in the name of Jesus Christ—traveled throughout the globe destroying cultures and ravaging the civilizations of those they encountered. Everywhere Whites went, as the scripture reads, death was the rider, and hell followed closely behind, which meant trouble for the indigenous people of the planet, said the Minister.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said since the White race had been let loose, they have killed 100 million people for every thousand years of their existence.

“Which means six-hundred million people have been killed under the rule of Satan,” he added.

This is consistent with policy discussions at the highest levels of the U.S. government aimed at the preservation of the planet’s resources for use by those whom they deemed to be desirable members of the population. The people and the resources in areas commonly referred to as the “Third World” would be targeted for pillage and plunder.

As AIDS ravages Africa, and Black communities of America, with abortion and Planned Parenthood clinics being used as vehicles to practice eugenics in the inner-cities of America, combined with global food instability, the population of the Earth is being culled, which means to kill or destroy. This appears to be part of the strategy of the wickedly wise to halt the demographic threat posed by the birthrates of Black and Brown people, he said.

“White supremacists cannot abide that this country that was made by White people for White people will now be in the hands of Brown people, and this is why White supremacists are so upset at the coming to power of a Black man and a Black family in the White House,” he added.

Despite the civilized face shown to the world during the recent inauguration of President Obama as he officially began his second term, America is divided and there are high levels of dissatisfaction.

“America has become an armed camp,” said Min. Farrakhan. “Oh my dear people of America, can’t you see where this is headed?” he asked.

America’s coming civil war?

In 2011, Libya, Col. Muammar Gadhafi’s country, was under siege and he was in the midst of a civil war. The charge that he was “killing his own people” was used to justify his political assassination.

“That’s what civil war brings,” said Minister Farrakhan. “Civil wars are bloody wars.”

However, he cautioned that dissatisfaction exists in any nation, including America. The idea of civil war should not be strange to those who have studied America’s history. More Americans died in this country’s 1861 to 1865 Civil War than in any war since.

The real issue abroad was the Central Intelligence Agency and the multinational corporations in partnership with the international bankers saw Col. Gadhafi’s leadership as an obstacle to the achievement of their objectives. They began to exploit the dissatisfaction that existed there, armed the opposition using their client states, and accomplished regime change, however, their moves there and also in Egypt have backfired, and their efforts in Syria so far have failed.

Although America’s history of meddling in the affairs of other sovereign nations is well-known, they never considered that they would experience blowback inside of their own borders. The same type of conflict and unrest seen overseas is coming to America, the Minister warned.

The value of the dollar is falling, food prices are rising, the people are well-armed, angry with President Obama and dissatisfied with their government, said the Minister. This dissatisfaction has been brewing as the people of America become more and more aware of the oligarchs and plutocrats that control the wealth of the nation. It appears as if another civil war is looming, but the arrogance of the nation’s rulers prevents them from seeing what is coming, he said.

“When they are so dissatisfied with their government—as they are—you have armed your people to destroy their own government,” said the Minister. “You too will have to fight your own people.”

The Minister recalled the words of the New Testament where it is written there would be earthquakes in diverse places, famine, pestilence, nation rising against nation and kingdom rising against kingdom. “That’s happening as we speak,” he said.

“What will happen when the economic bubble bursts? What will happen when the great fall of the stock market takes place—it’s on the way!” said the Minister. “The crash that is coming will make the crash in 1929 look like nursery school.”
