Truth by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad from Our Saviour Has Arrived
I am well aware of my disputers who dispute without knowledge and who are followers of the devils for certain privileges. They claim to be representatives of God and Jesus Whom they claim to be the Son of God, but they are licensed, ordained, and sent by the devils (God-sent men are licensed by the world). This class which loves to be revered and honored by the people whether God has any respect for them or not are really agents of the slavemasters the devils). They are secret persecutors and murderers of the prophets of God and will say: "If they had been in the days of the prophets, they would have been their followers and would not have opposed them.'' Yet they persecute me and my followers and all who teach the truth for the same reason that the enemies did to the prophets of old.
It was special privileges that Pharaoh offered the “enchanters" to oppose Moses as being a liar. "He promised them that they would be drawn near to him," (Pharaoh); Holy Qur'an (7:113, 114). It is the nearness (friendship) of the white race that the majority of the so- called Negro preachers seek, and not the nearness, love, and friendship of God. They openly confess that in their position (licensed and missioned by the white race to preach according to their likings), they cannot preach the truth if that truth is against the white race. Their followers' (church members) burdens are ever made grievous to carry because of the love and fear of their enemies by the preachers. They call preaching the truth hatred. The source from which my teaching springs, or fountain from which I drink, is the same source from which Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus drank – Almighty Allah (God) in whom you probably do not believe; as the disbelievers of the above – mentioned prophets did not believe in those prophets’ truth.
The early man (original man) knew the earth’s revolutions, the circulation of blood, and the existence of microbes. The only man or people who were late in acquiring such knowledge was the white race which is the only late or new race we have on our planet. “Adherence to the unknown is a throw-back to anyone or nation.” This is the number one holdback to the so-called American Negro. Without the knowledge of self or anyone else, or the God of their salvation they are lost, strictly adhering to or following those who preach and represent a mystery God (unknown), but yet charge that mystery God with getting a son out of wedlock and of waiting 4,000 years to produce His Son to give His made people (the Adamic race) the religion called Christianity. This is the gravest charge that could be made against the all-wise, all-knowing, and all-powerful God. And they say: “The beneficent God has taken to Himself a Son.” Certainly this is an abominable assertion; the heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces that they (the Christians’ preachers) ascribe a Son to the beneficent God. And it is not worthy of the beneficent God that He should like to Himself a Son. “There is no one in the heavens and the earth, but will come to the beneficent God as a servant,” Holy Qur’an (19:88-93).
I bear witness with the above-said that an all-wise, all-powerful God does not need a Son; and if He would get one as the Christians charge Him (out of wedlock), He could be charged with adultery. I repeat, “The white man’s so-called Christianity is not only no good for the Black man; but it is fast proving to be no good for the white race who are the founders of that religion, and not Jesus, as they would like for you to believe.
An Open Letter By Cynthia X (Williams) of New Jersey
ASA Bro. Farrakhan:
I am troubled and deeply pained. Imagine if a Believer was knocked unconscious in 1994 and woke up in 2009? Imagine that same Believer slowly re-acclimating oneself to the Messenger by listening to Theology of Time series, watching the interview of the Messenger by Irv Kupcinet and Buzz Anderson, then studying the Messenger's 1958 Birth of a Savior.
Now imagine that same Believer seeing the current edition of the Final Call "Can America Win" featuring a white soldier holding a gun on the front page.
Bro., Where is Elijah?
Ohhh, I found him: Page 19 Prayer in Islam; Page 28 Fasting and Eating Right Foods. Is this really adequate? Is this enough Teaching for the Snoop Dogs, Foxy Browns, and the remainder of our Dumbed Down Black populace?
I saw something on YouTube where you decried anyone making you into a punk. Well, why depict Elijah as a old relic of the civil rights era; as if Elijah is relevant only to topics of food and prayer;
your paper just punk'd the Messenger of Allah.
Where are Elijahs Teachings about the reality of God Allah, Who Came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad in the Final Call?
Where are Elijahs Teachings about the Original Man and the Colored Man/Yacub's Grafted Devil?
Have you and your followers become ashamed of Elijah? Why do you have "followers"? Aren't the people whom you minister to suppose to belong to Master Fard Muhammad?
Why have you not kept Elijah out Front as all the Ministers were instructed in 1965? The instruction hasn't changed. You do still take instructions from Elijah don't you?
Our people are more depraved, savage, and vulnerable than ever.
You self appointed yourself to lead the NOI after pledging allegiance to the Hypocrite and Defamer Wallace Deen.
The Believers forgave your Hypocracy when you pledged to re-build the NOI with our help. Instead of manifesting the Messengers characteristic Humbleness and Fire (that consumes false teachings and the Liar), I heard you say you are Wise. I listened to you say, you were a General and had manuevered to keep us from being slaughtered.
You make yourself a rival with Master Fard Muhammad by using such language. The Scientists saw no end to His Wisdom, so to style yourself as Wise and a General there must be evidence to support this, but as the Messenger taught, what would another one teach you? We only need to echo the Teachings and practice the Program.
It is only the Son of Man who controls who lives and who perishes.
All you had to do was be a faithful and parrot of the Teachings of the Messenger. This is not an insult but a high compliment to anyone who maintains fidelity to the Teachings from God Himself against the onslaught of the forgetful, silly, and jealous orthodox muslims, and the Devil.
The Messenger and Allah are inseparable, Allah made His Choice in 1931. I chose you as my leader in 1980 as the National Representative of THEM at the Elma Lewis School of Fine Arts in Boston.
Yet by 1994 the Spirit of the Messenger departed from me with help from you going off course derailing the Teachings and not keeping the Messenger out front.
The Million Man March has become the Million Man Corpses. The stench of death envelop Black people everywhere in America because our Men are not functioning like the example of the Messenger and our women are the Devils handmaidens.
We are decomposing while we live. Poison food, poison air, poison medicine, bad housing, low education, single mothers who can't teach anything to the "future", marriageable Black men in prison confinement, non-stop computer game playing, endless filthy dancing, and so on and so forth.
So under your leadership, instead of making me study the Messenger I spent countless hours trying to grasp your new teachings in the series, "Self Improvement the Basis for Community Development", oh, and the Number 19 as if I were in seminary school. It was sterile and non life giving and I faded. I probably would have fought the good fight if the Teaching remained consistent. I don't know for sure. But those endless Bible verses were not helpful. Young people have to be put to work to see how you grow and nurture business and self independence. I went from Muslim novice to Christian theology scholar. Definately not what I signed up for.
What I should have been studying is what Master Fard Muhammad instructed, not your revamped version of the wheel.
What MFM gave Elijah in 3.5 years lasted Elijah 44 years. How then do you stand up in 1977 or '78 and switch out teachings a few years later. You didn't re-capture what was squandered and given away by Wallace. Until you could match the Messenger, all you had to do was aide us in catching up to where the NOI left off.
Orthodox Muslims. Their non-acceptance of Master Fard Muhammad and Elijah is of no consequence; they control nothing in Allah's heaven and earth.
Ramadan is in December. Allah did not give you Authority to Change or Alter what He deemed appropriate for the Black people in America in terms of fasting from spending, drinking, and hog eating all in the name of a righteous prophet Jesus in the month of December.
Bro. how were you able to embrace and praise Wallace Deen when he sent you and a whole generation of our people back to the vomit of spirit worship, forbidding the Messengers books, sending us into empty rituals, dependancy, and seeking nearness to our open enemies of 400 years? But even more important, how do you embrace someone who tried nearly all his life to humiliate and hurt the man giving life to the dead Black Nation and gave life to You? Allah does not love His Enemies. Are you more magnanimous than Allah? Of course not, so you embraced Wallace Deen for a reason known only in your bosom
Wallace never recanted or asked forgiveness. Why are there no articles in your Final Call examining The Time? The Son of Man? Do you not care you are aiding in Depriving Black people the knowledge of Self, God Allah and the Devil though you have a medium to educate Black people about Elijah?
Do you realize by omitting the Base Teachings that God is a Man and not a Spook, and the caucasian is the Devil who continues to visit horrific Evils upon the defenseless Black People, you are complicit in sheparding the Black people of America to Destruction?
Warning to the Orthodox Muslims who seek to Deprive the Messenger of what Allah gave him which is the Authority and mission to preach Freedom, Justice, and Equality to the deprived Black people in America.
The Orthodox Muslims, with your blessings Bro., returned us to worshipping a Spirit/Spook to make us unworthy and to prevent us from getting out of the way of Allahs Destruction.
Master Fard Muhammad's destruction of America was delayed to give an opportunity to teach us and then get us out of the way of Allah's chastisement on America and the rest of the white Devils along their Black sympathizers.
Are you trying to win friends and influence people by denying Elijah and the "Separation or Death" that he taught?
Why not trumpet and promote Elijah?
He overcame the slanderers and Hypocrites(Kallatt, Malcolm, and Wallace Deen et al).
His example of non-stop Nation building to doubting Black people proving "Yes We Can" long before it was co-opted by the chameleon half-original Obama (who wont even speak one word nor commit any federal resources to Black concerns). But you know what Bro. my pain is easing and my fire is increasing. If Allah is indeed Oft-Returning to Mercy, than by making me to know the the Coalition for the Remembrance of Elijah (C.R.O.E)is that mercy to me. Now, I do not know how my story will end, but I do know I haven't felt the Spirit of the Messenger until CROE. They are the archive for the history of the NOI and an institution of Higher Learning.
I've been "processing". What this means is CROE insists that our people need to know Elijah's Teachings to the fullest. They promote Black people having a direct relationship with the Teachings without anyone's slant, bent, interpretation, or coloring. They remove conscious and unconscious barriers that would interfere with getting the Root knowledge, the Teachings.
This includes personality worship or depending on a personality to give the teachings life to a student. It's like the old Kung Fu t.v series, when Kane could walk across the rice paper without tearing it, he could rely on his own base of knowledge to be self-guided for the remainder of his life.
CROE promotes the Messengers teachings just as He gave it for 44 years.
Its been a quite a journey but I have gotten you, dear heart, Bro. Farrakhan out of my system, and now see the Messenger and Master Fard Muhammad as the sole repository of light, truth, and Real Love.
I missed an opportunity to learn the Messenger when I was an impressionable teen under your direction. With CROE I get that chance to learn again. The Messenger said on 11/11/62 that the Devil would have a hard time trying to extinguish this teaching, "from the East coast to the Gulf coast, to the West coast round the boarder of Canady, you will find little Elijah's".
C.R.O.E. is a little Elijah. I want to be a little Elijah. My own independent self. So I study Elijah as I've never done before.
I hope it is not too late for me to do something worthy and have some heaven on earth while I live.
As Salaam Alaikum
Your Sis from Boston now in New Jersey

Hoping you return to Teaching the Teachings of the Honorable ElijahMuhammad and not hide the Messenger or the reality of God being a Man in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad.
The Lake of Fire By: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
The following editorial can be found in the book, Birth of A Saviour.
Think over how much you have been preached to like Jerusalem. The Jesus said he did all that work in Jerusalem, and that even if Sodom and Gomorrah had had that kind of work they would have believed and repented long ago. I say the same thing about Chicago, and Detroit: For 40 years I have taught the people of these two cities enough for them to walk into Heaven. Regardless to how high it is or how wide it is, they should be able to walk in it because they have been taught everything. They should be scientists at the Knowledge of Truth.
But just think over the prophecy. When the time came the people still were in doubt and it overtook them at a time they knew not. This is Truth.
That is the way it was with Noah and Lot. When the time came they didn’t have anybody so he had to turn them all over to destruction. Think over the hundreds of thousands of our people in Chicago to be turned over to destruction. If you are not a believer you won’t go any place but to that.
Don’t think I am going to try to defend you and you are at home asleep instead of at the Temple. I am the one.
I have said that I am the One who will be here to do this kind of work. You will say like the disbelievers said to the prophets in those days. They begged the prophets to let them go along with them but they weren’t worthy. Look at all of the converts Lot thought he had. The angels kept telling him they would cut the number down if he could bring it up. He kept running back thinking that he had more followers than that five or ten or fifteen. He thought he could get that before he would get out of the door but he was not able to do it. He just was able to bring before the Angels four or five.
The Bible and the Holy Qur’an speak of a very small number coming from you out of millions. The Bible says two out of a family and then it says in another place that the people would be very small in number, that believe. And it looks like that.
What’s holding you back? “Oh, I don’t believe nothing is going to take place like what he’s talking about. He may be talking just for money.” Well if we are, your money would not be any good if these things come to pass and they are going to come to pass.
A Man like Me who has been wrestling with your disbelief for years gets disgusted sometimes. We are having some bad, bad, bad troubles in this part of the world as you read and as you hear over the radio. There is suffering. Don’t think you are immune to it. The Holy Qur’an says you will hear it coming from a distant place with its vehemence raging and roaring. It is on its way to bite Chicago. It will frighten you nearly to death when you see these things going on in America and in Chicago.
Chicago and many other cities of America will be treated like these that you are reading about and listening to. That same kind of trouble, or worse, will come here. I am like Jesus said after he had taught Jerusalem so long and so hard. He was disgusted. He got outside and looked back at her. “Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killeth the prophets and stoned them that are sent unto thee. How often would I have covered thee as a mom covers her little chicks with her wings? I only say if thou wouldst believe, but thou now art left desolate. There will be no more prophets after me. I was your last one. Woe to Jerusalem. You hate prophets. You don’t like them. “That is an awful pitiful crime”. In about 70 years another king came in and sacked the city taking away the independence of the Jews. These things will soon come to America.
Then what will you do who are depending on the devil Caucasian here? You won’t have anything to look forward to. Some of you are loving the devil Caucasian so well and so sincerely that you don’t want to bear Me call him a devil. But you just stick around who are loving him. Him and you both will be pushed into the lake of fire together.
“And I saw,” said the Revelations, “the devil and those who follow him pushed into a lake of fire and brimstone.” Don’t think these people are lying just to fright you into believing. No. It is coming to pass. Prophets don’t lie. The people call them liars but they don’t lie.
The sun is going down in the West. This Teaching will raise a power Sun of Truth from this part of our planet by Me whom Allah (God) raised up among you. No more will you look towards the East after this for the light of Truth to come. The Light of Truth which the scientists of the East were not able to give you will come from the west.
We are happy to have had the privilege to let the Word of truth drop into the heads of our people. We pray Allah that this Word will be multiplied into your hearts with the 30 or more million people of ours.
We are happy to say to those who have read these few words that we are your Brothers and Sisters and we want you in the Circle of Safety from a Saviour Who is well able to save you and Me.
Thanks to Master Fard Muhammad, Almighty God, for coming to save you and Me. The words that you have read of Him, please take them to heart. Go forth wherever you may go and tell others of your kind that the Saviour has arrived.
May the God of Truth, Power, Justice and Equality go with you until we meet as I say unto you, As-Salaam-Alaikum.
Elijah Muhammad Messenger of Allah
