CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) - The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered the first message of his highly anticipated 52-week lecture series titled: “The Time and What Must Be Done,” from the historic Final Call Administration Building located on Chicago’s Southside.
The title was given to him by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, who himself delivered a monumental lecture series titled “The Theology of Time” over a period of five months in 1972.
In the hour-long message, the Minister said everyone living is now “in the valley of decision” and are being separated into groups of those who desire to abide by the will of God, and those who desire to continue to operate under the rule of Satan. Everyone viewing this series of messages, the Minister said, has something to do “in order to escape the consequences of the time.”
Although Chapter 103 of the Holy Qur’an—the book of scripture for Muslims—serves as the scriptural basis for this yearlong subject, the Minister used many biblical references to show the relationship between the prophetic utterances, and events of today. Through the lens of the teachings of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad, and with extraordinary range and depth, the Minister made today’s choice clear.
“In this Qur’anic chapter, time is a yardstick of measurement of consequence,” said Min. Farrakhan. “The time will determine whether we lose or whether we win, whether we live or whether we die. Whether we suffer privation or whether we grow in prosperity, it all depends on what we do with the knowledge of the time.” [Read The Full Article]
