In part one of the Matrix series in one of the early moments of this fantastic movie that is filled with heavy principles and symbolism (I cannot say the same about the other parts, which I found personally boring), there is a brief scene that if we analyze we can learn how prophecy is fulfilled.
The scene I am talking about is when Neo gets a message and the words, “Follow the white rabbit,” appear on Neo’s computer screen. Neo was puzzled, for the statement did not appear to make sense. Suddenly there was a knock on the door. He opened the door and there standing was a strange group of folks who wanted something that Neo had to offer. While discussing the business at hand the left shoulder of the young woman at the door had a tattoo of a white rabbit. After seeing the tattoo, Neo decided to do just that, follow the white rabbit.
Prophecy being fulfilled is similar to this. Many read over the pages of scriptures in both the Bible and Qur’an which are filled with prophecies. Yet, many readers do not know how to understand how it will and has been fulfilled. For example the Book of Revelation is known for its prophetic statements. However, due to being taught the improper understanding and interpretation of scripture there are people expecting to see LITERAL flame breathing dragons, with three heads and bodily features of lions and bears. This expectation prevents people from knowing when prophecy is being fulfilled and how it is being fulfilled. Many readers fail to understand that such descriptions as mentioned in the Book of Revelation are symbolic signs that point to the characteristics of a thing or a person.
There are significant prophecies that speak about the person, the work, the enemies, the successes and the mission of God’s two key servants that are said to appear TODAY! However, people fail to see these men who are the answers to their prayers, because they fail to understand that the books of scriptures are meant to point to a human being. This problem was prophesied in the New Testament, check out John 9:39-40 in the Message Translation, “You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you’ll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me! And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren’t willing to receive from me the life you say you want.”
I write this to point to the EXTREME importance of three books that have been published by our National Student Secretary, Brother Berve Muhammad titled:
(1) Moses: A Sign of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad
(2) Aaron: A Sign of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan (THE MINISTER SERIES Book 1)
(3) Joshua: A Sign of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Brother Berve does an excellent job showing how the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad & the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan fulfilled scriptures written about Moses, Aaron and Joshua while at the same time teaching people how to understand how prophecy is fulfilled. The books are written in an easy to understand manner. It’s not filled with a lot of big words or theological jargon which confuses the average reader. It is simple and straight to the point. He begins each book by giving the histories of Moses, Aaron and Joshua. He then follows up with the histories of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad & the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Once this is done he begins to show the UNDENIABLE parallels in the histories of the Prophets whose lives are signs and the men who are the fulfillers of their histories.
These books are a MUST have! Brother has titled the series, “In the Volume of the Book,” which to me means he has more in the works. Brother Berve has started us off with small steps that if followed and BELIEVED will help us grow into the scriptural identities of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad & the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Get these books brothers and sisters. When you do, you are making an investment into your salvation.

This year, 2017, will mark the 30th anniversary of what may arguably be the most profound, impactful and life-changing lecture series delivered by anyone in modern history.
On Sunday, July 26, 1987, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, gave a lecture that would become the first installment of a five-part lecture series titled, How to Give Birth to a God. During this series of lectures, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan mentioned that he had been studying the subject matter for then fifteen years, prior to delivering the lectures. His extensive study on this topic was clearly evident with every word he spoke. The Minister’s divine proficiency of scripture, history, biology, psychology and metaphysics – coupled with his wise understanding of the woman and her direct connection to God, resulted in a lecture series of unparalleled guidance and direct application for both men and women.
During Part Two of this five-part lecture series, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan made a powerful declaration to the Sisters, “You can change the world with your womb!” This single statement capsulizes the message that the Minister so beautifully delivered all of those years ago – and based on the condition of this world, it is a message that must be reignited in the consciousness of our people. It is difficult to disagree that the world is in a terrible condition. One could also, then, agree that the condition of the world is a direct result of the condition of the mindset of the people who inhabit it. This mindset was not created in a vacuum, for there are no persons – living or dead – that did not come from the womb of a woman. Simply put, the nations of the world, comprised of thinking people, cannot rise any higher than their women. Why?
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan explains that the woman is blessed with two wombs. Not only does the woman possess the physical womb (often called uterus) that houses the baby during pregnancy, but she also possesses a mental womb – the mind – that directly feeds the growing baby spiritually and mentally. Both wombs are majestic and created by God to be extraordinarily powerful, giving the woman the ability to produce a god or to produce a devil. Both wombs must be at their optimum in order to give birth to a god – a child that will grow to one day change the condition of our world for the better, and not continue to perpetuate the wickedness that pervades.
The Bible reads, “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” (Psalm 82:6 KJV). If this is true, and it is; then what happened? Why have we as a people not actualized our god-potential? The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said, “It is not that you don’t have the potential, the capacity, but you don’t have the knowledge. And because you don’t know how to do what you are born into the world to do, you miss your task.” During his lecture series, the Minister shared that prerequisite knowledge with all of us.
Preparation is the key. In order to get the physical womb at its most desirable state to produce the desired goal – a god – we should begin at least one year prior to conception. For most, it is common knowledge today that our physical bodies must be cleaned-up. We must immediately stop smoking; and eliminate all drugs and alcohol. We must quickly wean ourselves off of all over-the-counter drugs and unnecessary medications that can be replaced with proper food and nutrition. We should invest in a copy of How to Eat to Live: Books I & II by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and practice the diet he describes, which was given to him by God in Person, as a prescription for our ills and to give us abundancy of life. Exercise is also paramount because being healthy and physically fit will help to minimize complications during pregnancy and give the body the strength required to endure the physical burden of bearing life.
What is not common knowledge to most is that the mind must also be prepared before conception so that when we are blessed to conceive, we will be deliberately focused and engaged in assisting God to create human life. This serious preparation for getting the mind – the second womb – into a state to produce a god cannot be neglected, because this womb affects the spiritual and mental development of the growing baby, inside the physical womb. This process should also begin at least one year before conception; but the more time that is invested in our spiritual and mental development – the greater the benefit for our children.
The Minister also emphasizes that our heart-felt desire to produce a child for God must be forefront. It is important to understand that we cannot intentionally produce what we do not desire to produce, so the first essential attribute that the mental womb must obtain is the desire to produce a child for God. Not a child that possesses the characteristics of a Tamerlane, a Hitler, or more recently, a Jeffrey Dahmer – all born of a woman – but a child that possesses the characteristics of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad – also, all born of a woman.
Living a clean physical life is a reflection of living a clean spiritual life and vice versa. But amazingly, the mind is so powerful that whether or not adequate time was taken to prepare the physical body, a focused-determined mind can overcome the physical. If desire is present, it will feed our will. Our desire to produce a god will inspire us to bow down to The God that can bring it about. So, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said that as soon as we know there is life in the womb, we should be as Mary’s mother and make a vow that we will devote our child to the service of God; and ask Him to accept the child from us. There is simply no substitute for prayer. More than anything, it is our sincere supplication to God during pregnancy that impresses itself on the brain of the forming child. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said, “Now look at what she [Mary’s mother] did. She formed it with a vow, so her desire to please God started writing on the brain of the child that was being fashioned from her blood. You, woman, can make the child a mental giant or you can make it an imbecile; but it is what you think and what you desire that writes on the brain. And the child comes forward from the darkness of the womb with a predisposition toward a certain reality.”
We can change the world by producing gods from our womb. A god is one who has force and power to change reality by creating a new and better reality. A god has mastery over self and environmental influences. A god can manipulate the forces of nature. A god is supreme in his or her field of endeavor. This means that a god is also extraordinarily knowledgeable and wise.
In Part Four of How to Give Birth to a God, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recalls a Japanese woman who produced four geniuses as a result of reading to each of them while they were yet in the womb. The first direct instruction ever given to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was – “Read.” Reading not only stimulates and energizes the thought process of the mother, but also that of her child. The Minister advises us not to read foolish fairytales and nursery rhymes that promote falsehood, not godhood. We should read the most beautiful scriptural narratives to our growing baby combined with books that have a focus on nation-building disciplines.
This article is just a mere snapshot of the Divinely guided lessons shared by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, but hopefully this information makes it is easy to see how thirty years later, the Minister’s timeless message continues to reverberate in the hearts and minds of a new generation. Over the decades, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has never wavered in making it clear to our people, particularly our women – that we are chosen by Allah (God) to produce a brand new reality on this earth. This can be achieved when we actively co-operate and co-create with the same God who meticulously designed the exquisite womb of the woman to be a replica of His own self-creation, from the triple darkness of space.
We are blessed to serve a Benevolent God who did not leave us alone to figure it all out, without proper guidance and a specially-prepared Guide. We were indeed given instructions and guidance on how to live and how to manage every area of life, including – how to rear our children. Through the mathematically precise study of nature, science, the Scriptures, the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the words and living example of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, we have exactly what we need!

ST. LOUIS (FinalCall.com)—St. Louis is a city known for its famous 630-foot-tall steel monument, the Gateway Arch and as the home of Dred Scott, Maya Angelou, Miles Davis and a host of other Black greats. With a Black population of 72 percent, it is a city with a history of over 253 years of polarization, racism and White domination over the political, educational and economic status of its Black residents. Recently, a fresh-faced, energetic young man entered the political arena in hopes of influencing change in St. Louis.
John Collins-Muhammad, 25, joined the political scene and the race to occupy the vacant Aldermanic seat of former Ald. Antonio French and was a familiar face during the Ferguson unrest following the police killing of Michael Brown, Jr. Tory Russell, another Ferguson activist and front liner is Mr. Muhammad’s chief of staff and was his campaign manager.
Mr. French ran for St. Louis mayor against four other Black candidates which split the vote and Lyda Krewson who is White, won. She is the first female mayor of the city. Mr. Muhammad was elected with a strong solid campaign with limited financial resources. He won with 44 percent of the votes on the city’s North side April 5, 2017.
After his victory, Mr. Muhammad hosted an event in the park for his supporters to meet him. Hundreds of people came out to express their appreciation and prayers for the young leader.
“It was a beautiful event. Mr. John laid out his plan for moving the community in a new direction. He talked about everything; crime, jobs, education, housing. He has a vision and that’s what we need,” said Earlene Walker
“I’m proud of Alderman Muhammad because he represents the next level. A young Black man in our city who’s committed to making a difference. We must rally around him and help him in his mission which should be all of our mission; and that’s a better, more unified St. Louis,” said Pastor Darryl G. Gray. <<Read Full Story>>

In The Name of Allah
I am a student and follower of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Minister Farrakhan teaches us that we should seek knowledge until we leave this earth. The knowledge that we gain, as travelers on this earth, should be used for the benefit of ourselves, our families, our community and our world. I would like to think of myself as following those life instructions. Of course I can do better, however, I never shrink from exploring new knowledge.
With that as the preface; I would like to share with the reader something I found that really struck me.
It is an article by Steven Levy entitled, “One more thing” online at wired.com. I encourage all to read that article. In this article, Mr. Levy is interviewing a few people who knew and worked for Mr. Steve Jobs, founder of Apple. In this article Mr. Levy gathers information about Mr. Jobs’ last endeavor that was on the books to be completed. The work was to build an Apple new campus named Apple Park but is referred to by the author as “The Mothership” due to its massive size and circular shape. The campus can hold 12,000 workers. Mr. Jobs had to sell this idea to the city council of Cupertino City, Ca. His idea was/is to build something that would go beyond himself and beyond any of us that are alive today. That was Mr. Jobs’ idea.
Mr. Jobs’ vision was to create and environment where the border between nature an building would not be blurred. He envisioned greenery just a step away from your office. He wanted no expense spared in building this fortress. Mr. Jobs believed that the environment where his workers spend most of their lives should complement that sacrifice and enhance their interaction with one another and enhance their thinking, where ideas would flow freely. He envisioned where there were no lines between who was CEO and lower level workers.
Unfortunately, Mr. Jobs passed away before this project could be completed. However, a strange thing happened. There were people who loved Mr. Jobs so much that they lined up their minds with his mind and they kept on working toward that goal. They searched the earth for, not the right material, but the perfect material to complete this project. They speak of Mr. Jobs as if he is still alive. They listened carefully to what he wanted and what he envisioned for them! They did not take any short cuts. They were called crazy for taking on such a project that was considered a “retrograde cocoon” by the Los Angeles Times’ architecture critic.
The cost to build this “Mothership” is 5 billion dollars. Mr. Jonathan Ive argued, ”The value is not what went into the building. It’s what will come out.” What a magnificent answer to the question of, “why so much?” Mr. Tim Cook stated, “Could we have cut a corner here or there?” Cook asks rhetorically. “It wouldn’t have been Apple. And it wouldn’t have sent the message to everybody working here every day that detail matters, that care matters.” That was what Jobs wanted—what he always wanted. And the current leaders of Apple are determined not to disappoint him in what is arguably his biggest, and is certainly his last, product launch. “I revere him,” Cook says. “And this was clearly his vision, his concept. Our biggest project ever.”
Now, as a student of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, when I read this article I got goose bumps because I know there will come a time where we are faced with this same question, are we prepared to do that “one more thing? What is that one more thing? Jesus asked the question, “will I find faith on the earth when I return?”
I bear witness that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has poured his life into the upliftment of the Blackman and woman of America in particular and to the human family in general. He has been on this journey for 62 years of his life and has given his all. I bear witness that Minister Farrakhan does not concern himself with the cost of building human lives. He knows that it is not necessarily the cost that goes in but the product that is produced from that cost, financially and non-financially. Have we internalized the idea contained in the mind of my father, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan that stems from the mind of his father the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad that stems from the mind of his Teacher and Savior, The Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad?
Will we change the idea of what we have been taught? Are we strong enough to bear the criticism of our enemy both black and white both externally and internally? As Mr. Cook says, “I revere him. This is clearly his vision, his concept. Our biggest project ever.” The upliftment of the Blackman and Woman of America is the biggest project ever in the history of the world, question, How strong is your foundation, can you survive. Let’s do this “One More Thing” and keep the faith. May Allah bless us all.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan sends a message to President Donald Trump and the government of the United States about the “clouds of war” and why Black people should not participate in America’s wars.
On Saturday, May 27, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was the guest speaker on Day 1 of the annual Ramadan Prayer Line.
“My dear brothers and sisters, once again, by the favor of Allah, we are gathered together to celebrate this book, The Qur’an, that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, during the Holy Month of Ramadan. We thank Allah to be alive one more time to enter this great fast. There were many who were with us last Ramadan who are not with us this year. We pray that those who have gone on that the reward of their faithfulness, and the reward of their service to Allah, that we will not be deprived of their reward. But certainly we are now in a great trial after those who lived their life for Islam and died as Muslims that returned to Allah: We who are yet alive are now in a great time of trial, particularly in our world of Islam,” he said.
