Isaiah 11:1) And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3) And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4) But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5) And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Daniel 12:4) But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Zephaniah 3:8) "Therefore wait for Me," says the LORD, "Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations to My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. 9) "For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language, That they all may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him with one accord.

Matthew 24:24) For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25) See, I have told you beforehand. 26) "Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it. 27) For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Rev 5:1) And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2) Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?" 3) And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. 4) So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it. 5) But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals."

Revelation 19:10) ………Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." 11) Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

In an initial observation of the continuing activities of Mr. Farrakhan, the latest of so many unfounded assertions, accusations and aspersions, there is, as it is written, nothing new under the sun. What he continues to do, though, is lay the future falsework of the mindset that will be rampant in a not so distant future of actuality. Then, when those who have the facts are no longer around and the remainder are silenced by threats and acts of those that refuse the facts, Mr. Farrakhan's audience will enjoy a much greater response, for in that time, the 'messiah' he speaks of will have been announced. But let us be sure we understand whose 'messiah' he is referencing. There have been discussions in these postings where many of the Muslim ideology are awaiting their 'messiah', just as keenly as does the Iranian president Ahmadinejad and Mr. Farrakhan and so many, many others. Are we to believe that his version of the future is sure? Or do we more correctly look to the LORD who has provided His WORD that He alone controls the future and no false prince will stop the truth. For those who do believe in the true Jesus Christ as LORD, that answer is simple.

Still, make no mistake: Mr. Farrakhan's rage against the Jews is as unmistakable as the epithets and antipathies coming from the Middle Eastern antagonists surrounding Israel. Yet it is in the subliminal mindset we are compelled to watch what is happening and understand: what is happening is inevitable; how we handle it depends on keeping the truth alive in belief and faith in Him who has everything under His control, and not Mr. Farrakhan.
