'The Time and What Must Be Done' 2013 Lecture Series, Part 2 by Minister Louis Farrakhan

[Note: The following article contains a distillation of the hour-long message delivered by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as Part 2 of his 52-week Lecture Series “The Time and What Must Be Done.” This message originally aired on Saturday, January 19, 2013.]

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

Greetings to you, I am Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Eternal Leader of The Nation of Islam, The Great Preacher of Freedom, Justice and Equality for Black people in America and our people throughout the world, and a Warner to the government and people of the United States of America and the nations of the Earth.

I am honored to have this opportunity to speak to our people and to speak to the American people, and to speak to the people of the world. We have chosen the year “2013” to begin this lecture series on a subject matter titled: “The Time And Must Be Done.” We have chosen this subject because we have entered, as a nation, a time of trouble like there never was since there was a “time” and a “nation.”

‘Signs of The Time’ from Bible and Holy Qur’an

Many expected the Mayan Prophecy of 2012 and “the end of the world” to take place on December 21, 2012. I do not represent a man who gave us the exact time; I represent a man who said what the scripture says in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 24, that “no man knows the hour” but God Himself, Who is bringing that Hour of Judgment to pass. However, we have been given, in both the Bible and The Qur’an, signs that we should look at; and then, contemplate and measure our actions according to The Signs of The Time.

Jesus gave signs of “The Time.” Again, in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 24verses 3-8, Jesus said that in “the last days” you would see “wars and rumors of wars,” there would be “famine and pestilence,” “nation rising against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” And, he said there would be “earthquakes in divers places,” along with “pestilence.” These are things we are seeing in an ever-increasing volume. The Holy Qur’an tells us in Surah 22 Al-Hajj (“The Pilgrimage”), verses 1-2“O people, keep your duty to your Lord; surely the shock of the Hour is a grievous thing. The day you see it, every woman giving suck will forget her suckling and every pregnant one will lay down her burden, and thou wilt see men as drunken, yet they will not be drunken, but the chastisement of Allah will be severe.” [READ MORE]
