The Fall of America, Chapter 62
The Fall of America
The Worst is Yet To Come
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted from the book, The Fall of America, published in 1974
According to radio and television, and according to individual
conversation — and according to conversation heard between government
officials concerning their problem of trying to find a way to peace for
their people — and a way to find stoppage of the fall of their money
market and unemployment — and a stoppage to the revolutions between the
dissatisfied and the dissatisfied — and to find a way to be able to eat
– and to keep the hungry eating from his own labor — pacification is
offered but it does not satisfy.
With nations rejecting peace offers and nations laughing and making mock
of you for ever seeking peace and friendship — as it is written, ?Peace
is desired more than fine gold!?
Now to see all of these things coming to pass — things that we did not
know that we would see. We did not know that we would see such a Goliath
– such a giant — falling.
Goliath! who has defied the nations of the earth to come out and fight
with them, as Goliath did before Israel. Now, nations make mock of the
great giant of the earth, America.
The sword within and the sword without! Trouble seems to have no end. And
with tens of millions of free Black slaves crying for freedom, justice
and equality from the white slave-master — and the white slave-master
wanting to deceive the Black slave and make promises that the white
slave-master does not intend to fulfill to his free Black slave –
And with the free Black slave thinking that he will eat some crumbs of
freedom, justice and equality from his white slave-master — the free
Black slave will be gravely deceived!
The white slave-master cannot free himself from his enemies, not to think
of the white slave-master freeing himself from the consequences of the
So, with “The Worst Yet To Come,” I say to you my Black brothers and my
Black sisters fly to Allah; and come follow me! There are some
intelligent white people who know and who will bear witness with me that
the worst is yet to come!
Look at Texas! There is a warden at a certain prison-house who sends the
believers (Muslims) to the Temple so that they may listen to the truth
which is their salvation today; to accept the truth.
I think that this is a very wise warden. It is like Ahab?s general
(Bible). The general knew that Ahab was wrong and that Elijah was right.
Ahab?s general took four hundred of Elijah?s followers and hid and fed
them with the bread of Ahab in order to save them from hunger while they
were in captivity to Ahab.
I say to you leaders, remember the above-said of this writing, that “The
Worse Is Yet To Come!” As the Bible teaches us that “a time would come
that had never come before,” and that those who understood — ?their
hearts would be failing them with fear and their eyes would go away in
their holes” for looking at the things that they saw coming on their
people — the trouble! the destruction! and the plagues!
Look at the earthquakes that are taking place. Those earthquakes are on
their way here. We are feeling the earth shaking under our feet across
As the Holy Qur?an prophesies to us, “you will hear it coming from
distant places with vehement raging and roaring!”
America is best all around now with troubles and destructions which have
