Part 8 or 9
We are witnessing the exchange of power in world governments, mostly because of the dissatisfaction of citizens toward those who have the responsibility to govern them.Â As I follow these events I constantly thank Almighty God Allah and His Christ for the presence of the Hon. Louis Farrakhan, who is a Man of Vision.
I am thankful because the vision of the Minister is helping the Nation of Islam (NOI) avoid experiencing what we see taking place throughout the world. He is doing this is by performing an operation on the hearts, minds and spirits of those who occupy positions of leadership in the NOI.
The Minister on numerous occasions has pointed out to the Registered Believers how the laborers were part of the problem during the time of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and even when Master Fard Muhammad was present. Being aware of this history and the knowledge of the Time the Minister has moved out on his vision to see the NOI rise to where Allah intends for it to be. â€œI refuse to allow us to stay in this position, which is delaying our rise and the rise of our people,â€ stated Minster Farrakhan on August 20, 2010.Â
Several years prior to those words the Hon. Louis Farrakhan removed the title of EVERY laborer in the NOI (Matt. 23:8-11). No minister was able to teach from the rostrum, the power of giving someone time out of the mosque due to some violation of our Restrictive Laws was taken away from those who were responsible for enforcing the law. The Hon. Louis Farrakhan launched several ministries within the NOI that would help those who came to the NOI to use their talents and resources to help build a nation. The laborers were asked to get back into the mindset and spirit of a student and a servant. The Hon. Louis Farrakhan said that he wants to remove the ugly characteristic of arrogance and the abuse of authority. â€œI want to purge you of arrogance and envy,â€ and the impact of the â€œslave masterâ€™s treatment of us from our psyche.â€Â
A laborers conference was called where the Minister allowed Dr. Alim Muhammad and others to present a process called Deliberative Dialogue. The purpose of this effort was to create an atmosphere where believers would be given the freedom to express ideas, concerns, criticism and complaints, free from the fear of retaliation. The Minister did not stop there. The entire NOI came together on a weekly basis during Registered Believers Only Webcasts, where the Hon. Louis Farrakhan taught on the principles of proper leadership and the mindset of a servant (Mark 9:33-37).
Today, the entire NOI has been put on a study course on Wednesday nights, which is aimed to help strengthen the Believers in the Teachings of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad. On Friday Nights, the entire NOI engages in a self-improvement study course as well. The Minister recently found a scientific procedure within the community of Scientology, that has great value for our people, as well as the laborers and the NOI as a whole-that scientific method is known as Dianetics. This method coupled with the powerful Teachings of the Most Hon. Elijah Muhammad is being used by the Minister to help remove anything that is contrary to nation building. â€œThis helps us further clean up our demons and sociopaths in leadership, suppressive personalities- hypocrites,â€ stated the Hon. Louis Farrakhan.Â
The Minister has been working to qualify and correct the leadership of the NOI for years, however, during my short time here in the Nation, I can personally, testify that the last 3-4 years has been very intense and purifying as a laborer in the NOI. In light of the current uprisings and cries for liberty, I further see how the vision of the Hon. Louis Farrakhan to see the NOI with qualified leadership and the mind to serve, is helping us to avoid the way of so many fallen nations. This in house training and preparation will also benefit the world.
