Mainstream media is hiding real news

Farrakhan The Traveler by Jabril Muhammad

"Admire not how the wicked live, but trust in the LORD and wait for His light; for it is easy with the LORD suddenly, in an instant, to make a poor man rich." Surah 11 Verse 12.

The front page of today’s (August 8th) The Arizona Republic reads: "Human clones will be done."

This headline expressed a vow, which came from three researchers who (according to this article) expressed their determination "to press ahead with separate efforts to create the first cloned human being."

This news report continued, that these three researchers made "their remarks at a symposium of the National Academy of Sciences, an independent research organization that has convened a panel of scientific experts to study cloning. The academy advises Congress on scientific matters."

There are many people, subjects and events that profoundly affect the lives of billions of people. Such qualifies as "news." However, only some of these "news" items are selected for the public’s attention. Others are ignored. Still others are totally or partly concealed. The effect of the weather (recently) on Texas is an example.

I, for one, don’t know what will be reported as the leading news "stories," in the so-called "mainstream" media, about a month from now, when this issue of The Final Call appears (Allah willing). The vital issues in the news today, may not be the published news then.

Will any newsworthy events go unreported, by America’s so-called mainstream media, by the time you read this article?

Yes!

What news that best serves the people? Shouldn’t it take precedence over all other news? From whose perspective should it be written?

Bibles are preached, read and/or listened to by billions of people. It teaches of the resurrection of the dead and the judgment of this world. That’s when God establishes His new world. He will come in Person to bring all of this about.

If this is that time, then the "news" should reflect this awesome fact. Does it? Yes, but indirectly and often with denial.

This "news" ought to be primary on everyone’s mind. This should be central to discussions, in homes, schools, etc. God’s arrival and His work, through His servants, should be on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Why, then, are there no talk shows about God’s presence and the work that He is performing through His servants? There are no TV updates on God’s activities, and that of His servants.

If Allah’s foreknowledge of these times are written in the scriptures, and if the majority—especially the rulers—accept and love Him, why does this go largely unreported, and if/when reported, it’s distorted?

The words of Allah, through the mouth of His prophets—that are being fulfilled every day, ought to determine what the front-page news ought to be. Moreover, this ought to determine the perspective from which it should be written.

What was foretold to occur in these times? Where are they described in the scriptures that billions of people have? Who and what people would be the first to receive God’s wisdom during these foretold times?

The answer to this question explains why the true news goes unreported, distorted or when reported, it’s concealed altogether—and the true news providers are persecuted. The reaction of the wicked to His arrival is written in several places in the scriptures.

The focus of the scriptures ought to be our focus. It’s the focus of God, His Christ and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Study this carefully.

In Revelation 1:7 in The Jerusalem Bible, we read that "É and all the races will mourn over him." [Emphasis theirs.] The Revised Standard Version reads "É all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him." Phillips Modern English version reads: "É his coming will mean bitter sorrow to every tribe upon the earth." The Living Bible puts it: "É the nations will weep in sorrow and in terror when he comes."

They’ll mourn, weep, wail, sorrow—why?

At the root of the distorted reporting of the essential news, is the wickedness of the rulers of this world. They are at their wits end to figure out what to do about His coming. For years they have been secretly scrambling to put together what they hope is an effective plan to deal with the Supreme Being and His servants.

Revelation 1:7 mentions "clouds."

The "clouds" in Revelation Jesus comes with are "baby" planes from the Mother of Planes. They well know the identity of the Supreme Commander of this plane. Their hope is to keep the deceived—especially the Black people of America—asleep or at least groggy from dope, poison drinks and from other poisons, both spiritual and physical.

Most people don’t get serious until trouble comes. By now, it ought to be clear to a fool, that big trouble is around us all. Look at the weather. Look at the increase of insanity. Look at the problem people have with simple communication. The world still stands on the brink of nuclear death. Millions of children are starving to death, while their helpless parents weep. Joblessness is on the increase. So too is slander, gossip and vanity. So too is murder, suicide and robbery in all forms. The earth, sky and water are also polluted.

Food is bacteria and drug infested—stunningly poisoned and diseased—and legalized.

Despite their spread of death in all forms, the Caucasians are inadvertently helping in the preparation of God’s promise to "make all things new," as it was written in the scriptures.

The most prominent of those who state that this is the end of this world’s time, are the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Louis Farrakhan. What makes their teachings and work so different in kind rather than degree?

The former was given the key by God, in Person, for him to raise the dead. The latter was then given this same key to continue this work. The former has gone to his Teacher, and is now participating with Him in the judgment of this world and the setting up of God’s rule forever. The latter is preparing as many as he can to escape God’s imminent wrath. It’s an irreversible work.

If you want the way out of the fall of this world, get with Minister Farrakhan. If not, then stay in the warped state of mind our former slave-masters worked us into. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s love for us did not stop him from saying that our minds were made "warped" by the wicked. Proper diagnosis forces seeing things as they are before you can apply the cure that will produce real health.

Minister Farrakhan’s work is to un-warp our minds and to seed the minds of millions, with truth, for that event which will force all to stand up.

What does "warped" mean? How is this related to Minister Farrakhan’s use of such words as "narrow mindedness, self righteous behavior, tunnel vision," etc. in his letter to the Believers in The Final Call, dated November 22, 1995? How does this relate to hypocrisy?

We are living in the days of the fulfillment of the prophecies written in the scriptures for this time—which includes the publishing of this newspaper!

More next issue, Allah willing.
