I’ve been following this story ever since Farrakhan first posted the following video of him at a Christian church on August 22, 2017. While it is still early, the portion of video he chose to share is devastating to the Islamic beliefs he claims he believed (past tense), as heard in the video.
The posting of the video, along with the comment, “I know my redeemer liveth. Jesus is alive”, is the exact opposite of what Muslims believe about Christ. Farrakhan also makes the following comment during the video, which has many people suspecting that me may now be a Christian.
“I say to the devil, I know I gotta pay a price for what I’ve been teaching all these years. You can have the money, you can have the clothes, you can have the suit, you can have the house, but me… you can’t have.” – Louis Farrakhan
While there are still many skeptics, his Facebook status left many black Muslim and Nation of Islam believers confused and looking for answers. So far no official response has been heard from Farrakhan or his representatives.
If true, Farrakhan’s conversion to Christianity would be a major stain on Islam, but at the same time has the power to pull many Muslims out of Islam’s grasp. Either way, I’ll be on top of this story until more develops.
Why Is This So Significant?
Farrakhan is the equivalent to the Pope to The Nation of Islam. To the millions of believers that follow him, this is the equivalent to Pope Francis declaring Muhammad a more important prophet than Moses. There’s also one more major possible Biblical prophecy that could come off of this conversion, if it is indeed a conversion.
“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” – Luke 21:24
I’ve been 100% open and clear about my belief that the Transatlantic Slave Trade was all about hiding the tribes of Israel, and that many blacks in America are descended from Israel. It is also no secret that LEGAL slavery in America is approaching its 400th year. The 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery… it just made it conditional. This along with the fulfillment of several other often overlooked prophecies, point to a major awakening happening within the black community. The New Testament says that Israel would remain partially blind until the fullness of the Gentiles was come in.
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.” – Romans 11:25
While the rest of the world has been distracted, and rightfully so, with all of the horrible things happening in the country, people like myself, Minister King, and Minister Keith have been keeping a close eye on the sudden spiritual awakening that is happening among black people in America. The mainstream and fringe Christian crowds have all been ignoring a growing trend of black Americans all consolidating into three major religions and one minor religion:
- Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI)
- Kemet (minor)
The pattern emerging seems to be a shift toward a mixture of Christianity and BHI, especially given all of the evidence that has come to light recently, thanks to sites like mine and many others. This creates a fourth category of black followers of Christ who no longer refer to themselves as “Christian”, but are indeed believers in Christ, but with a historical understanding that the people in scripture were people of color as described in the pages of scripture.
- Not using the word “Christian” is moreso about avoiding semantic arguments. We identify ourselves as “followers of Christ”, and if people choose to call us Christians, that’s fine, but it makes it clear that we are following him and not any particular denomination or church tradition.
- Many of us also have opted to use the words “Messiah” or “Christ” for the same reasons. It helps avoid silly debates as to whether or not the letter “J” was really “Y” and so on. People of all faiths accept the terms Christ and Messiah without debate. God is not bound by language and if you choose to say “Jesus” that’s perfectly acceptable.
- This isn’t a “new” religion or belief system. It’s simply a bridging of truth while filtering out the hate preached by BHI and the division caused by those claiming to be Christian while defending slavery, hate, oppression, racism, segregation etc. Because of this many black Americans view the label of Christianity as the the “religion of the oppressor”. Unfortunately, the current White House administration is only confirming what many already believe about Christianity, which isn’t helping one bit. A middle ground between the two extremes can and does exist.
Truth Regardless of The Outcome
Part of the reason I created Black History In The Bible.com was to research African Americans and our connection to the line of Ham. But as I got deeper into the research, things just didn’t add up anymore. There was a significant amount of mixing between the lines of Shem and Ham, but nothing in scripture about Shem or Ham mixing with Japheth. Common sense tells me that if Ham is the father of black people, as commonly taught, and all of Jacob’s sons lived in Africa and took women from the lineage of Ham for wives, then the children from those unions would be dark skinned.
There was no way to deny what was clearly written in scripture, recorded in history, and what common sense tells me. It was at that point that my eyes were opened to a hidden truth. Psalms 83 was directly connected to “the lost tribes” and history as we know it had been stolen from the world. However, this will not always be the case and I believe the next phase will be triggered by the awakening of Israel… true Israel.
“Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.” – Jeremiah 30:10
I couldn’t deny the historical and geographical evidence provided by BHI during my research, but I also cannot condone the hatred they preach towards all white people (yep, it’s that easy to denounce racism from people of your own race). My site (BHITB) now serves as a refuge for PEOPLE OF ALL COLORS that believe in Christ and that many black people in America are the descendants of Israel, but just can’t embrace the “hate all white people” ideology pushed by BHI.
BHITB is growing at a much faster rate than this one and it has only been around 1/5 the time of this one. My stats also show me that African countries are visiting my site at rates almost as high as Americans. That fact alone tells me that something spiritually significant is happening in throughout the black community in America and across the planet in general. It’s almost as if we all suddenly became aware of the truth and started searching to confirm it.
Farrakhan’s possible “awakening” to who the Messiah really is, could be part of a much larger chain reaction that will signal that the fullness of the Gentiles is upon us. There’s no doubt that many black American Muslims will follow him to Christ, based solely on his name, and others that will be open to investigating the claims of the Bible, even though they never were before. .
Islam among blacks in America could significantly be reduced in the coming years, leaving Christianity, BHI, and the hybrid between the two as the new major beliefs among black people in America. Most black people generally don’t do multiple gods and goddesses, which is why Kemet loses it’s initial allure very quickly to all but a devout few. BHI’s hate speech is also causing many to abandon the “camps” (BHI denominations) in favor of more neutral territory that allows them to freely embrace Christ and a belief in black Hebrews simultaneously.
There are a lot of things brewing that aren’t making major news, so I’ll keep posting the updates as they develop. They’ll either be posted here or on Black History In The Bible.com.
