During the final installment of his year-long sermon series "Time and What Must Be Done," The Minister Louis Farrakhan called on President Barack Obama to "open up Area 51," a government location known for sparking conspiracy theories surrounding aliens and UFO landings.
"President Barack Obama, call the scientists. Open up Area 51 to the scientists to the world, because you America are the leader that Allah God has raised and made you powerful that he might make himself known through you," Farrakhan said. "And if America calls the scientists of the earth to such place, they will respond."
The Nation of Islam leader said that calling "the scientists" to the location would "show them the sign of the presence of God to right the wrongs of the earth and heal it."

Farrakhan maintained that Obama would place the "shadow government" -- a coalition that is purportedly "controlled by the global elite" and has seemingly veiled Area 51 and UFOs in secrecy -- in danger of being exposed if he complies.
The faith leader believes that this secretive government force has hidden the presence of UFOs from American presidents and the public alike for decades. This includes The Mother Wheel, a massive spaceship that he believes remains in orbit and will eventually rescue Nation of Islam adherents from earth.
"The scientists all over the earth will know, especially through the clarity of our voice and what they see that God is present and that we whom they have destroyed would not have this knowledge if it did not come from the highest of sources," Farrakhan continued. "We believe our words that we have shared on the presence of the Wheel could help the president and America to avert Allah's warning of chastisement and destruction if America does not bow down."
Farrakhan said that this "shadow government," which his outlet, Final Call, recently described in detail, could lead to the destruction of America if the truth is contained. So by opening up Area 51, he seemingly believes that this chaos can be averted.
Watch him explain these concepts below:
“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.”
It's unclear how Area 51 relates to the Mother Wheel theory, aside from the notion that both themes involve UFOs and extraterrestrial theories.
In other recent theological proclamations, Farrakhan indicated that the U.S. government has known about the Mother Wheel since the 1940s, but has gone to great lengths to keep the information a secret.
Earlier this month, Farrakhan also issued a fiery message to Pope Francis, challenging the pontiff and “all lovers of Jesus” to “a showdown.”
