The Gods at War
The Gods at War
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
The following article is transcribed from an audio-taped copy of the
National Radio Broadcast of Mr. Muhammad Speaks
Hereafter means after the Holy War or after Armageddon or after the war
between Satan and Almighty God. This is what is meant when we say the
Hereafter. It means after the war between right and wrong has been
fought. This war is oft-times called a war between God and the devil.
The devil seeks to hold supremacy over God. Since that he has ruled the
people for 6,000 years, he desires to continue to try to hold his place
as a ruler of the people. And seeks to bring, before the people, every
opposition that he possibly can to destroy their heart and their minds
towards the worship and obedience to Almighty God, Allah.
Here, in the Western Hemisphere in America, where (there is) twenty-two
million original black people live, whose fathers suffered slavery for
around 300 long years. And that this enslavement of our fathers has
caused us to believe in the enemy or adversary of God, the real devil
And that it is hard today to get our people to disbelieve in the devil
and believe in Almighty God, because they never knew anything of God or
the devil only by the teachings of the slavemaster. And the slave master
was always careful to conceal himself that they might not know who he is
and therefore it was impossible for them to learn who was God and who was
These are really two Gods. The devil is a god himself, as mentioned by
Jesus in the New Testament, that he is the god of this world, the prince
of the power of air. This is true that the devil has been the Ruler for
6,000 years and god of this world.
This world means the world of the devil. Under his rule, people forget
the real true God and the way to that true God because that he will not
teach the people.
Again the parable of Divine or the Fig tree that Jesus, as the Book says,
cursed, was also a sign of this world that this world have never produced
converts to the will of Almighty God, Allah. Never has any so-called
American Negro been taught by white people to believe in Almighty God,
Allah and his True Religion, Islam.
Only in the higher organizations or we say Masonry or the Masonic. There
is a little teachings, there at the top most of this particular order,
that mentions the Teachings of Almighty God, Allah. But you have to pay a
lot of money to become a 33rd degree Mason. Therefore you are victim, as
Isaiah teaches you, that you buy that which does not bring you any gain.
To buy that kind of teaching does not gain you the Hereafter. We must
have something that is pure. A Mason can not be a good Mason unless he
knows the Holy Quran and follows its teachings. This book is the only
book that will make a true Mason. The Bible won’t make you a true one.
I say if you are a true Moslem Shriner, then all right, let’s have it in
the open and not in the secret.
These things I warn you that are listening, that the time is now ripe,
and it has passed, that everything, everything of good or bad must be
We are living in the end of this world. The judgment of this world. These
are the days of Judgment, mentioned in the Bible, as that “In the Days of
Judgment” or “In the Days of the Resurrection of the Dead”. These days
represent years and not just a little twenty-four hour day, as you know
them to be, but they mean years. In the years of the Judgment or the
Resurrection of the Dead. We are in those Days now.
The coming of Allah and the Teachings of Islam to we, who has been lost
from our kind and native land or country for the past 400 years means the
God doesn’t come until the Judgment or until the end of the world of
Satan. As you have it written in the Bible, prophesied throughout the
Bible and also absolutely mentioned in Thessolonians. That “God comes
after the workings of Satan”, the devil. And after he has done all that
he possibly can do of evil, then God comes. Allowing him to go to the
full, or giving him the freedom to try and take all the people with to
hell, if possible.
These are the days, now, that we are living in.
I want you to understand, my dear people, you are not in the actual way
of the truth. You have not actually believed it. The time now has come
that even if you would just turn to Almighty God you would enjoy
salvation or heaven in this world. And in the Hereafter you are sure of
the heaven, but in this life.
God gives the righteous a peace of mind and contentment. He is the
protector of the righteous after He makes His appearance, He is the guide
and He is the guardian of the righteous.
Today, now, as you see, and as you have preached it probably (you
ministers of the Christian religion) that the Judgment will come and that
there will be a great separation at the Judgment. This is true. But you
don’t believe that you are, now, living in such time that there is a
great separation now in the workings.
When you heard, first, that there was someone in your midst giving the
names, seemingly to you, foreign names or alien names; such names as,
Karim, Beyah, Muhammad and Farrakhan, Hassan, and Hassien and such names
as Ali and many names that you are now hearing being given to your own
people and they are being called by these names.
You are so dead to the knowledge of self and kind, and the knowledge of
the truth and the true God, that you even don’t pay any attention to it.
But even makes fun of these names because you never heard of these names
before… and you are called foolish or fools in the Bible and in the
Holy Qur’an…Instead of grabbing a dictionary to see what such names
And when you learn that these names mean the good names of God, as
mentioned in most all of the teachings of religion. That God has 99 names
and the 100th is Allah. That means that He’s all of the names of Good.
And that the Bible teaches you, if you will agree with me, that no one
will escape or will see the Hereafter unless he has the name of Almighty
God, Allah. You have to have one of these 99 names.
Now God has come, as your Bible teaches you, and has given to us His own
holy name. They are holy names. I want you to remember that. Not one of
these names that you look up the definitions or interpretation, as you
may call it, that does not mean a good name or a Divine name. These
names is true. Look in your dictionary, and you will find them, the
meaning of them.
Take for an instance, that many of you foolish or fools will even laugh
at hearing one of you being called Muhammad. Muhammad means praise and
praiseworthy. It’s a name of God Almighty, that means that God is praised
and God is worthy to be praised. And when this name is given to you, just
remember that you are a person is called praised and you are worthy of
All Divine people, I mean the Black people, as Almighty God has taught
me, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, are entitled to these names,
because as the Bible teaches you in the sign, that they all are Gods and
the children of the heavenly kingdom.
So since you are the children in knowledge, that what it means. The
Lost/Founds are children in the knowledge of God. It doesn’t mean in the
age of you, but in the knowledge of your God, you are nothing but
children. And that is true. And that they are given these name because
they are by nature, from God. And they are of God and they deserve to be
called gods too, because they are gods. They came from God and they’re
the children of God. And as you find it mentioned in the New Testament,
to them whom He reveals Himself, referring to the Jesus, that they became
the sons of God.
This you are very ignorant to be laughing and making fun of such names,
as Divine Supreme Being names.
Because of the white man, who enslaved your father and made them blind,
deaf, and dumb to the knowledge of themselves, you follow what they have
revealed to you and not what God has revealed, but what the whiteman
You have taken them for God. And you worship them as God, as it is
written again in the Revelation and elsewhere in the Bible, that you
worship devils. And this is a kind of a thing that Allah has come to you
to make manifest that you may turn to your own God and be saved and see
Allah is well able to take care of you. Fear not that you will be the
loser if you believe in Allah. Allah has always, in the past and at the
present, taken care of his own people. He’s never too weak to take care
of them. You have read in the Scripture and History of the past, where
that God protected His own people from the evil-doers and from the
destruction of the evil-doers. How well He is able to do that today. He
created the heavens and the earth. And everything in it is His. He has
power over everything. This you must understand.
You laugh at the name Allah, because the white man never did teach you
that the Divine Supreme Being, His proper name is Allah. Because that he
didn’t want you to believe in Islam. This is true.
They don’t want you to believe in Islam, though there are some white
people in America that are true believers in Islam, I would say that
there are many of them. They run into the thousands and they actually
believe in the teachings of Islam, but by nature they are not real
Muslims or they are not the children of God, but they believe in Almighty
God, Allah and His teaching.
These are the people that you find written in the Book, that a remnant of
them will be saved. These people, it is true, if they hold fast and does
not lose their salvation by hating to hear the real truth of them, they
will be removed out of the area where there will be war between God and
It is only the people who opposes God, that God will fight and bring to a
naught. It is not the people who does not oppose God and who does not
teach other people to oppose Him. But it is that vicious and evil people,
who teaches against the belief in Almighty God and teaches other people
to hate those that believe in Almighty God, Allah. These are the people
that receives the severe Judgment of God.
I warn you, my people, since I see that you don’t understand too well,
that you should come to knowledge of the truth. You should listen a
little, to me. And you should follow me. But you are a little too proud
to do so at the present time. But there is coming a thing that God will
cause to take place that you will be forced to believe and submit. And on
that day you will be shame to do so because you have already rejected the
truth and refused to follow the Inviter of the truth, and therefore, on
that day, you will be shamed and disgraced to come to the inviter of the
I say to you, my friends that is listening to this, that this is the
Judgment. America is headed for total Divine Judgment.
This is the fourth Beast, mentioned in Daniel, that God will Destroy
first. And the other Beasts, their lives will be prolonged for a time, a
time after. This is also known to all of the Scientists and Scholars on
the Scripture. It is well known.
And that this is the symbolic Beast that Daniel saw and the same Beast
mentioned in the Revelation of the Bible, rising up and becoming stronger
than all of his predecessors, but was destroyed because that he rose up
against Almighty God, Allah, to pick a war against Him.
And that he went forth to gather people, as the Revelation says, to that
mighty battle between Almighty God and Satan. Gather people to help him
fight and oppose God setting up a kingdom of peace and righteousness.
This is the one, America.
And America is, now, under Divine Chastisement, and will end up into
fire. That is known. There is no protection. No defense from Divine
You can’t fight God and win! You have nothing to fight and oppose Him.
God fights you with the forces of nature. And the forces of nature, you
have no control over. If He would send a blast of heat from the sun, He
could lick you up without any further ado over you. He could cause the
earth to shake and bring down every one of your villages, towns and
cities throughout the land in the twinkling of an eye. He could bring
down hail and snow from the North and destroy you with cold, bitter
bitter cold, weather, as He did people in the past, as the Holy Qur’an
mentions the people to you, was destroyed by cold weather and a cold
blasting wind for eight days. Eight days and seven nights, these winds
coming out of the North with freezing temperatures, destroyed the people.
You cannot fight God. It’s impossible.
My friends, now, I want to say to you, do not hate the Messenger for
teaching you the truth. You should be glad to hear the Messenger of God
teach you the truth in these days and times. It puts you aware of what
you are doing.
Ninevah heard the Message of Almighty God coming to them from Jonah. They
repented. They foresaked their luxury and sat in the dust to repent of
their evil, and God gave to Ninevah an extension of life.
No, I don’t think you will do these things, because it is already written
that you will do what you are doing. And I don’t think that you will
repent. Though if you would repent, God will accept your repentency and
maybe get you and your children in the future, who will not repent. But
you probably are already the children of the future, who have refused to
And today, I warn you, my listeners, you are living in the Day of The
Judgment. And America is on the list of God to be destroyed, as God has
already taught me and warned me and taught me the way He will destroy
I said to you in 1958 in Washington, that by 1970 that the Resurrection
of the poor Lost and Found Original People of the earth, the Black man,
would all be resurrected by that time, here in America.
You see more signs of that truth coming true now, than you ever has
before. You see the people, the darker people here, give an ear to the
truth that I am teaching you of Almighty God. You see them paying more
attention to it than they have before, regardless to the strom of
opposition that has been created against me and my followers, which I
fear not because I am sure that I must suffer the same things that other
I don’t call myself a Prophet, but I’m a Messenger of God. You don’t need
a Prophet today. All you need is the Messenger. This is the end of the
Prophets, because what they predicted is now making itself manifest. So
it is the end of them…so I’m teaching you, and I do say I am a
…That these things, now, is making themselves manifest that the
so-called American Negro will bow to the Will of Almighty God, Allah. For
they are Divine people of God and has been mislead, and has went astray
from the Divine Supreme Being, from their master.
Their white slave-master’s guidance and his teaching have caused this
poor people to forget God, caused this people to not even know
themselves, caused this people, today, to be fighting and opposing their
own salvation when they should be running into it by the hundreds of
thousands. But, as the enemies knows these things, that you are now
standing at the door of your salvation. It has come to you in the
teachings that I am giving to you today. This is it.
You must have the name of Almighty God. A name that will live, according
to your own Bible’s teaching. They only names that will live is the Name
of God. You must have that. You must know, today, that you must be joined
on to your own people. You must know today that you must have some of
this earth that you can call your own.You must know today that you
cannot make friends with this people and with God at the same time. You
must know that there is no such friendship in them for you and me. You
must know that they are the adversary of God. You must know that they are
determined to carry you with them to their doom, despite the Almighty
God’s calling and His offer to you of Heaven at once.
I say to you, my beloved people that is listening, today, Fly for your
life and stop trying to become one of them or forcing them to accept you
as one of them. But Fly from them into the arms of Almighty God, as it is
written, His arms are stretched out still to you.
And stop being tempted by Satan’s advertisement of filth. And pull your
dress down woman! And stop going around in the street with your dress
above your knees, showing the nation your shame. It is nothing but filth
that has been offered to you by Satan, and you are swallowing it by the
Any husband that will walk along with his wife and seeing her dress above
her knees is a poor husband. He don’t value his own property, his wife.
And he don’t value the property that’s in that wife. I say, you, husband,
that allows such a thing as this should be punished yourself.
I thank you for listening. As-Salaam-Alaikum.
