As The Blaze has reported, Nation of Islam theology teaches that the “Mother Wheel,” a massive spaceship, remains in orbit and will eventually rescue adherents from earth. Farrakhan spoke about this spaceship theology in a 2011 speech:
“The final thing is the destruction. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad told us of a giant Mother Plane that is made like the universe, spheres within spheres. White people call them unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Ezekiel, in the Old Testament, saw a wheel that looked like a cloud by day, but a pillar of fire by night. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad said that that wheel was built on the island of Nippon, which is now called Japan, by some of the original scientists. It took 15 billion dollars in gold at that time to build it. It is made of the toughest steel. America does not yet know the composition of the steel used to make an instrument like it. It is a circular plane, and the Bible says that it never makes turns. Because of its circular nature it can stop and travel in all directions at speeds of thousands of miles per hour. He said there are 1,500 small wheels in this Mother Wheel, which is a half mile by-a-half-mile. This Mother Wheel is like a small human built planet. Each one of these small planes carry three bombs.”
This description adds understanding and context to Farrakhan’s proclamations in his latest sermon. Calling Jesus the controller of the Mother Wheel, Farrakhan warned detractors that he has God’s ear — and that the massive Mother Wheel will come to earth at his beckoning.
“All of you failed prophets and hypocrites join all together all of you that condemn me — see if you have the power — all of you together to call the Christ the Master of the Wheel and let him bring them down, all 1,500 of them,” he said. “You go ahead and try to call the wheels down since Jesus is up there and he’s the master of that wheel and I’ll make a call to the Jesus that I know and represent and let’s see which one of us he’ll answer.”
