Modern Babylon is Falling
Modern Babylon is Falling
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted from February 23, 1973 edition of Muhammad Speaks Newspaper
We say ‘MODERN’ when we refer to something RESEMBLING something of the
past. This name ‘Babylon’ begins in Genesis 10:10 (Bible). In Gen. 10:10
it is spelled ‘B-a-b-e-l’. But, the same name seems to have changed
itself into the name Babylon as we come to the most late-day history of
BABEL (Babylon) – According to the history of Babylon throughout the
Bible. BABYLON is referred to as something prophesied as having a failure
upon her progress and rise.
IN Psalms 137:18, David prophecies that Babylon was made to be destroyed.
We know of nothing other than the devil and his works, that was actually
made to be destroyed, spiritually.
THE devil was not made to exist forever. This is verified by both the
Bible and the Holy Qur’an and by all writers and teachers of scripture.
So, here, Babylon seems to refer not only to some town or city, but it
also seems to refer to a race or a nation of people.
ANCIENT BABYLON, as is known by all us, was a city under the reign of
Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar. The fall of Babylon was final. Babylon was
never to be rebuilt, after her fall. And, Babylon was never rebuilt.
THIS POINTS to the same prophesy of the devil and his kingdom in the
Revelation of John (Bible) — that satan and his kingdom would be burnt
up and it would never rise again.
IN the Epistles of Paul there is a prophecy of the devil and his kingdom
‘that the devil was made for fuel for the fire.’ The Holy Qur’an refers
to this prophecy in these words, “Fuel of hell is men and stones.”
SO, as the ‘fuel of hell is men and stones’ –we do not know why stones
are put there with men, it could be referring to the hardness of the
stone and to the hardness of the heart and the hardness of the wicked
against Truth and Righteousness.
IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION (Bible), it is prophesied here, that an angel
heralded a warning to the people that Babylon is falling. He then tells
why Babylon fell. Babylon fell because she…”is become the habitation of
devils, and the hold of every unclean and hateful bird.” The ‘foul
spirit’ here is used to tell us that the people of Babylon were filthy.
THE TERM, ‘a cage’ — this tells us that her cities and her country
became a CAGE for people of filth. The Bible teaches us that the God
Referred to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah as being people whose doing
and work was such that it came up and stunk in His Nostrils. (But I think
that if the God would Get a good smell of this modern wicked filth here,
he would think the smell of Babylon in His Nostrils was like the smell of
a flower compared to the wickedness of today.)
BABYLON is used as an example for some distant people or their history.
According to the prophets, this name Babylon is something that begins in
Genesis and ends in Revelation. It is found throughout the entire Bible
therefore we must not look at it as one personal part, We must not look
at it as spelling out to us the ancient, only.
IN JEREMIAH, (Bible) we see a ‘Daughter of Ancient Babylon’. He calls the
people the daughters of ancient Babylon. These people are not the old
parents, but they are the daughters from those parents.
THE DAUGHTER of Ancient Babylon refers to a more late and modern
civilization whose people give themselves over to the practice of the
same evil that the people of Ancient Babylon practised. But, the modern
people were more capable of improving of the practices of the people of
Ancient Babylon. Therefore, he calls this modern people ‘the daughters of
ISAIAH (Bible Is. 47:1) asks this people, the daughter of Babylon, “Come
down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the
ground: there is no throne…for thou shalt no more be called tender and
THE daughters of Babylon seems to have been a very rich people and they
had fallen from a state of great wealth. Isaiah used Babylon as a pretty
girl, whose lovers used to be plentiful because of her wealth and
attractiveness — now she has become ill-looking and had no more
attraction upon the people. So he said, ‘sit down in the dust, you are no
more respected and attractive to the people.’
THE PROPHET JEREMIAH warns Ancient Babylon that she had a daughter
coming. This daughter meets the fate destined for Babylon; she was made
to be taken.
Satan was made to be taken and destroyed. Why? Because she had become a
place where evil was practiced. She was like a bird that goes out and
associates with birds other than her own kind and then she becomes a
hateful bird – she is hated by the other birds.
BABYLON fills herself up with people of that sort. The U.S.A. came into
the Western Hemisphere and chasten and all but annihilated the Indians.
But, America invited every one of the poor class, who wanted to come from
Europe, to make themselves a home here in America, the Indian’s country.
ALL of the poor and evil citizens of Europe, America welcomed them. She
invited every race of the earth to come and join in with her in a free
country where evil and filth are openly practiced without hindrance.
AMERICA has done just this. She has filled up her country with all evil
people. America did not allow Islam nor a preacher of Islam, to come into
her country, America did not want good religion taught. America made a
religion that she could rule and control herself. She made it attractive
to the eyes and ears of those who see and hear it, by teaching them
basically that there was three Gods instead of teaching them the
teachings of Moses and the prophets — the Teaching of One God.
AMERICA makes is possible in her God-Head that if one of Them does not
like you, you may plead to Another and if One does not Let you By, One of
the Three Will. This is contrary to the very law of nature. It is
contrary to America’s own mathematical language. In mathematics it is not
possible to put three (3) into one (1).
SO, America, having this religion, contrary to the truth, today the
Author of Truth is Condemning her (America). America is nothing but a
foul and evil place to live. She has no respect for her own self, nor
anyone else. She will disrobe in the public and go Nudist. America even
has nudist colonies wherein if you desire to go nude you can do so, if
the public does not want you.
IN the Bible, Rev. 18:4,5 in the Revelation of John, a people are warned
to flee out of her. Here, we get the name Babylon to become a modern day
people. The voice of an angel warns the people of a certain class to fly
out of Babylon. “…Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers
of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have
reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (as being an
evil people). So the angel notifies us saying, “Babylon the great is
fallen.” Today, we see this same thing.
THERE is no people, to be warning, to come out of another people that
answers the description of this warning, as the so-called Negro in
America of Lost-Found People of our own Black Kind, does.
HERE, the so-called Negro is warned to fly out of her and not to be
partakers of her Judgment – her torment. The angel says, ‘so much evil
has she done to thee’ Rev. 18:6, “Reward her even as she rewarded you,
and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she
hath filled, fill to her double.”
ALLAH, (God) In the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, To Whom Praises are
due forever, Said to me, that there is nothing that you can do to her in
the way of evil that could match the evil that she has already done to us.
THIS is why the Revelator calls the people of Moder Babylon ‘beasts’, for
they live the kind of life of wild beasts. They have no mercy for
themselves or for anyone else. They are made merciless although there are
a few who will believe and escape the doom of her brothers. This is
their reward just by faith.
BUT, the Black Man is Created Righteous by the Creator, and he was made
blind, deaf and dumb by his kidnapping lord and master, the white
slave-master. I do not think that you could overlook the most positive
truth here, in this article, that we are now living in the CALL of that
angel, to us, to come out of her. The ‘her’ here means the wicked world
of the devil.
SINCE, we the Black People were kidnapped and forced into this world (of
the white race) we must be forced out of this world. It is not that you
my people will accept by just having the freedom to accept of your won
choice. No. You will have to be punished, Divinely Beaten and Destroyed
until you accept Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praises are due forever,
as your God and Saviour, as I and thousands of my followers are doing.
DO NOT think that the 144,000 prophesied of, are the only ones who will
be saved. The 144,000 refers to the first converts –’the first ripe
fruits of God and His Messenger; the first ripe fruits of God and the
ANOTHER prophecy warns us that ‘Babylon is falling never to rise again.’
In this warning it teaches you that the country and people of Modern
Babylon will become like the people and city of Ancient Babylon that was
destroyed and has not risen up a people or a city since its destruction.
I WARN you my Black Brother and Black Sister that unless you believe in
Almighty God Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, as I do and receive the Name
of the Holy and Perfect God you will never see the Here-After.
THE Bible warns you and me that on the final destruction of the wicked,
Allah (God) Will Say to the angel that He Has to Usher in the Judgment to
Bring His People to Him, everyone that is called by His Name. For He
Gives His People His Name so that He May Save them. So that they may be
the Servant of Allah (God) as they were the servant of the white
AS LONG as you are in the name of the white slave-master you belong to
the white slave-master And regardless to what you believe and regardless
to how mighty you think that you are, you will not be accepted by the
Black People and the God of Our Black People, if you have the name of
white people and if you are in the religion of Christianity. Thank you
for reading this article.
MESSENGER OF ALLAH,
to you All
