In the first three sections below, chapters 1-3 of Revelation are explained. They are about the seven churches.
Mason Remey was Abdu’l-Baha’s adopted son. He was appointed by Shoghi Effendi as the President of the Universal House of Justice that Shoghi Effendi set up.
After the Baha’is rejected this UHJ, Mason Remey held the scroll, or Covenant in his hands, until God sent the Seventh Angel to pronounce judgement upon the world for going against the Covenant.
Chapters 6 and 7 explain how the world goes through catastrophes after the seven seals on the Covenant are broken, and then mankind finally becomes spiritual!
Revelation 8 tells about the catastrophes that will befall mankind because mankind has broken God's Covenant.
Revelation 9 says a third of mankind will be killed in a one-hour nuclear war between the nations in the Northern Hemisphere.
The Revelation of Jesus
This book of Revelation is the greatest of all the books of the Bible. It is the Revelation of Jesus, and it is the least understood, as it is written in symbols and allegories such as different colored horses, a dragon, different kinds of beasts, and other images, to such an extent that none of the Christians down through the ages, nor the Covenant-breaking Baha’is, could fathom its meaning. As God gave this Revelation to Jesus Christ, only Christ (Baha’u’llah) or Jesus on his return could know the meaning of this book. Therefore, `Abdu’l-Baha, the delineator of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation, explained accurately the 11th, part of the 12th and part of the 21st chapters. The rest of the book has been left sealed to the Christians and to the Covenant-breaking Baha’is.
There have been many attempts by the Christians to interpret this great book of Revelation. These include attempts by both the Seventh Day Adventists and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. In the Baha’i faith there are two main attempts: (1) The Apocalypse Unsealed by Robert F. Riggs, copyright 1981, published by Philosophical Library, Inc., showing that this is not an approved book; and (2) God Speaks Again: New Keys to the Book of Revelation by Ruth J. Moffett, Baha’i Publishing Trust, P.O. Box 19, New Delhi, India.
For many years, Ruth Moffett tried to get the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States and the Guardian, Shoghi Effendi to approve the manuscript of her book for Baha’i publication, with no results. Finally, in 1977, she got the Baha’i Publishing Trust of New Delhi, India to approve her book.
For many years, Mrs. Moffett was one of the greatest Baha’i teachers in the United States. She would go from city to city throughout the country, putting on a great campaign, and having the Local Spiritual Assemblies make her appearances highly publicized by setting up lectures in prominent auditoriums. Out of these lectures, she would get several scores of seekers to sign up to attend two weeks of daily firesides. Most of these students became believers. Leland Jensen was a third generation Baha’i, with his grandparents on his mother’s side being among the earliest Baha’is in America. Leland Jensen’s parents, Daisy Dell Petersen and Christ Rowland Jensen, were both Baha’is before they married one another in 1911, and they met `Abdu’l-Baha when he visited both Kenosha and Racine, Wisconsin, in 1912.
Leland Jensen was born in Burlington, Wisconsin on August 22, 1914. His family then moved to Kenosha, then to Chicago, Illinois, then to Racine, and then to Sturtevant, just west of Racine, where the Jensen family first met Mrs. Moffett. Later, when the Jensen’s moved back to Racine, and Mrs. Moffett put on a campaign, Leland, who was about seventeen at that time, went through Mrs. Moffett’s firesides where she gave, among other teachings, her interpretation of the book of Revelation. She taught these interpretations throughout the United States. These firesides were most successful in bringing in new believers, sometimes doubling or tripling the number of believers in a town. However, these explanations were erroneous. Being erroneous, they have done much harm to the Cause of God, leading the sheep to the slaughter. Don’t get me wrong, Dr. Leland Jensen considered Mrs. Moffett to be one of his mentors, and he had a strong bond of affection and admiration for her. She didn’t lead the people astray purposely, for she had a strong belief that she was gifted. She claimed Baha’u’llah gave her the “keys” for the interpretation of the book of Revelation, and being that she used these “keys,” she believed her interpretations were authentic.
”The recognition of the ‘Keys’ as originating from a Divine Source [Baha’u’llah] eliminates controversy and establishes unity, harmony and clear understanding, opens the door of inner significance and thus preserves the truth. This is the only method that is authoritative and authentic, clear and satisfactory... the reader is asked to sincerely consider the Authoritative - Authentic Method, using the MASTER KEY, which is given by One Who is come as the Revelator, the World Educator, the Manifestation or Voice of God [Baha’u’llah], speaking to mankind for this Day....”[i]
Peter tells us: “First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scriptures is a matter of one’s interpretation, because no prophecy ever came by the impulse of man, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.” Footnote: “Other authorities read: ‘moved by the Holy Spirit holy men of God spoke’“ (The Second Letter of Peter 1:20,21).
Mrs. Moffett is telling us that Baha’u’llah gave us the keys to interpret scriptures, whereas in reality He passed the keys to interpret on to His son `Abdu’l-Baha in the Kitab-i-’Ahd (Book of the Covenant), making him the authoritative interpreter of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation as well as that of other Holy Scriptures. `Abdu’l-Baha’s interpretation of the 11th chapter of the book of Revelation pertained to Muhammad and Ali (Muhammad’s establisher), who interpreted scriptures written by Muhammad. Then 1260 years later they returned as The Bab and Janabi Quddus, His establisher who had the authority to interpret scriptures. The 11th chapter contains the prophecy of the coming of the seventh angel who would also (as did Janabi Quddus) have the authority to interpret scriptures. `Abdu’l-Baha explained that the seventh angel, as prophesied, will come and establish the kingdom. `Abdu’l-Baha stated in Some Answered Questions, P. 66:
“The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly qualities and character. Voices will be raised, so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and diffused... - in that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established, and the world will be renewed....
This seventh angel will be able to accomplish this as he fulfills the prophecies for the return of Jesus the High Priest as prophesied in Zechariah 3:1-10. As the return of Jesus, he gives the authentic and correct meaning of the book of Revelation.
There are prophecies in the New Testament for the return of Jesus Christ. Baha’u’llah fulfilled the prophecies for the second coming of Christ seated on the throne of David, but not the prophecies for the return or the second coming of Jesus. If He had claimed that He did, He would have been an impostor because Jesus said, “For many will come in my name [Jesus], saying ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.” Therefore, as a necessity, the return of Jesus must be another person, as Baha’u’llah only fulfilled the prophecies for the return of Christ, not the return of Jesus. `Abdu’l-Baha only explained the 11th, part of the 12th, and part of the 21st chapters of Revelation, as these pertained to the coming of The Bab and Baha’u’llah. `Abdu’l-Baha did not explain the meanings of the remaining chapters, and as the book of Revelation is the Revelation of Jesus Christ, then only Jesus on his return can explain the remaining chapters.
Daniel gave the dates for the return of Jesus. The first date was 1260 AH, or 1844, which was the return of Jesus as the Door. The second was 1280 AH, or 1863 AD, for the return of Christ (Baha’u’llah), and the third was 1335 solar years from the victory of Muhammad in 628 AD, which brings us to April 21-29, 1963 AD when Jesus (not Christ) began his ministry by being opposed by Satan.
The book of Revelation is the greatest book in the entire Bible, but it is also the book that is most misunderstood. Nobody knows the meaning of this book, as it is written in symbols, allegories, and in a style or fashion that makes it almost impossible to decipher its purpose and its significance. That is why preachers neglect it almost completely. This was the intent of God. That is, He kept it a mystery so that only the return of Christ, Baha’u’llah, and the return of Jesus the Lamb, Leland, would be able to unravel the mysteries that are enshrined therein. This was intended to provide proof that these two are the ones sent by God, so that all mankind could turn to them and benefit by Baha’u’llah’s Revelation of the Kingdom, and by Jesus’ explanations and commentaries to establish that Kingdom in the world. This is so all of mankind in this world would know the meaning of the book of Revelation. To all of the rest of the world it remains a complete mystery, except to those who have been taught the meanings by Jesus (Leland).
In approximately 96 AD John, the youngest of the twelve apostles of Christ, was in the area of Asia Minor preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was taken prisoner and exiled by the Roman Government to Patmos, a penal colony. While imprisoned there, John received the Revelation of Jesus Christ on His first coming, in the form of visions revealed to him by an angel sent by Jesus. John immediately addressed the seven churches that existed in Asia Minor at that time, revealing to them the visions he had received.
Symbolically, these seven churches represent the seven conditions of Christianity, both good and bad. These conditions either inflict or benefit the believers in Christianity. This message from Jesus was sent by the angel of Jesus to these seven churches, thus the Revelation of Jesus Christ was recorded and preserved until this very day.
Jesus was a Universal Manifestation, as were the prophets Adam and Baha’u’llah. The rest of the Manifestations, Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, and Muhammad, had Revelations that were for certain peoples, for the purpose of building them into very great civilizations. Jesus told His apostles and disciples to go out and teach the nations so when Baha’u’llah came there would be Christians living in all nations. When these Christians are converted to the Baha’i faith by the return of Jesus the Lamb, they will be able to persuade these specific civilizations to become Baha’i. The reason why Jesus gave this book of Revelation is so that after “the close of the age” in 2000 AD (Matthew 24:3), the whole world would become Baha’i. This “close of the age” refers to the close of the Age of Prophecy, and the beginning of the Age of Fulfillment.
The Revelation of Jesus Christ reveals to all of mankind that which will come to pass after the time when John received Jesus’ Revelation, up until the time when God’s Kingdom is established on earth as it is in heaven. This Revelation, however, was not to be understood or correctly interpreted until a specific preordained time when Jesus would return and give its true explanation. Therefore, the meanings of the visions that John received and recorded in the book of Revelation are hidden in symbolism and parallelism.
This is the time when the mystery of those verses is to be understood. The one whom God has ordained to reveal the true meaning of His Word was sent in this present-day to do the work of God. He is prophesied throughout the Holy Scriptures by various titles. He is the return of Jesus, Joshua the High Priest, the seventh angel, and the Lamb, to list but a few. This Promised One who fulfills the prophecies for the return of Jesus the Lamb is Dr. Leland Jensen.
Now is the Day of Judgment, which precedes the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. All of mankind will hear the Lamb’s explanations and commentaries. The Revelation of God that began with Adam approximately 6000 years ago, and ends during this cycle of man’s existence with the Revelation of Baha’u’llah, will now be established. The diverse religions that man has invented and holds fast to, will be destroyed. Those who cling to these false religions and/or their own theologies will also perish. These are the things that are revealed by the angel of Jesus to John, His disciple.
The explanations I have given here are an attempt to put together, verse by verse, this great message so mankind may receive the blessing of the knowledge of God’s plan for mankind in these last days. This is for your salvation and security during the oncoming catastrophes.
Preachers neglect the book of Revelation almost completely because its symbols, allegories, and style or fashion make its purpose and significance almost impossible to decipher. This was the intent of God. That is, He kept it a mystery so only the return of Christ, Baha’u’llah, and the return of Jesus the Lamb, Leland, would be able to unravel the mysteries that are enshrined therein. This was to give proof that these two are the ones sent by God so all mankind could turn to them and benefit by Baha’u’llah’s Revelation of the Kingdom, and by Jesus’ explanations and commentaries to establish that Kingdom in the world. `Abdu’l-Baha, the delineator of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation, revealed the meaning of the 11th chapter of the book of Revelation, as well as the first six verses of the 12th chapter, and a few verses of the 21st chapter. This is all the Covenant-breaking Baha’is know of the meaning of the book of Revelation. To the rest of the world it remains a complete mystery, except to those who were taught the meanings by the return of Jesus.
The Adamic cycle began 6000 years ago in 4000 BC, and will end when the Revelation of Baha’u’llah is established at the end of this cycle of man’s existence. The diverse religions which man has invented and holds fast to, will be destroyed. Those who cling to these false religions and/or their own theologies will also perish. These are the things that are revealed by the angel of Jesus to John, His disciple.
Through the Grace and Divine Blessings of God, I have been brought into the presence of His Promised One and have received the explanations he gives for this Revelation of Jesus. The explanations I have given here are an attempt to put together, verse by verse, this great message so that all mankind may receive the blessing of the knowledge of God’s Plan.
The following interpretations of the Revelation of Jesus are the only true interpretations as they are the interpretations of Jesus, not the Christ, but Jesus the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek:
“We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner shrine behind the curtain (veil), where Jesus has gone as forerunner on our behalf, having become a High Priest after the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 6:19-20).
The Book of Revelation, Chapter 1
1 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him to show to his servants what must soon take place; and he made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
2 who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw.
3 Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and keep what is written therein for the time is near.”
To begin with, this shows that the Revelation of Jesus Christ was not of His own creation, but was given to Him by God, thus also showing that Jesus was not God as the Christians believe. It also shows that this was not the Revelation of John. As well, it shows that the book of Revelation was a book of prophecies about events to take place in the future. It does not pertain to anything that was happening at that time or prior to that time. The fact that this was foretelling events to take place in the future was also repeated in different words in Revelation chapter 4, verse 1: “After this I looked, and lo, in heaven an open door! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, ‘Come up hither, and I will show you what must take place after this.’”
4 “John to the seven churches that are in Asia:”
This is Asia Minor, which is now Turkey. The seven churches were in the far western portion of Turkey.
4 (cont.) “Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne,”
This refers to God Who makes Himself known through the seven appearances of the Holy Spirit in the Divine Manifestations [other than Jesus Christ] prior to the coming of Baha’u’llah. These are Adam, Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, Muhammad, and the Bab. The “throne” is the throne of King David, which Baha’u’llah sat upon.
5 “and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.”
Jesus explained that He was a “witness” of the One True Invisible God, Whom He referred to as the Father. As He was the first one to believe in Himself, He was the “firstborn of the [spiritually] dead.”
Jesus said: “My kingship is not of this world” (John 18:36), but He also said He would come again.
Jesus explained that the wine or “blood” was a symbol of His Covenant. It is through Jesus’ Covenant that the Christians are to receive their salvation. The Covenant of Jesus is that He would come again. Jesus placed His Covenant in heaven (the heaven of prophecy), thus keeping it hidden. This Covenant refers to the Covenant of Baha’u’llah, Who fulfills the prophecies for the second coming of Christ. Thus, Baha’u’llah is the second coming of Christ. Baha’u’llah brought the Kingdom of God. He is the One that all Christians should turn to for their salvation.
6 “and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
The meaning of “priest” here doesn’t mean “priest” as in the Catholic Church. Rather, it means teacher. According to page nine in the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha, everyone must teach. There is no professional priesthood or paid clergy in the Baha’i faith.
It is prophesied that Jesus would come again. Baha’u’llah fulfilled the prophecies for the second coming of Christ. Baha’u’llah did not claim to be, nor did He fulfill the prophecies for, the return of Jesus. Leland (the land) fulfills the prophecies for the second coming of Jesus the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek (see the Book of Hebrews).
With the passing of Shoghi Effendi in 1957, all the believers were to turn to his son, the first International Baha’i Council. Jesus Christ and Baha’u’llah were both called “Christ” because both were descendants of King David. The meaning of the word Christ is a male sperm descendant of King David, who is anointed. Jesus was a descendant from David through His physical father Joseph, the husband of Mary (Matthew 1:6-16 and Luke 3:23-31). Paul, who did a lot of research in the archives, wrote in Romans 1:3-4: “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed [translated from the Greek word sperma] of David according to the flesh; And [only] declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness [the Holy Spirit],” which means Jesus was a Manifestation of God, not God. The Son refers to the potency of Jesus’ Revelation, whereas the Father refers to the potency of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation. If God was Jesus’ physical father, Jesus could not be the Christ, for God is not a descendant of King David.
The difference between Jesus Christ and Baha’u’llah is that none of Jesus’ ancestors sat on the throne of David except David himself. In Psalm 89 it is recorded, “Thou hast said; ‘I have made a Covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant: I will establish your descendants for ever and build thy throne for all generations’” (Psalm 89:3,4). Baha’u’llah’s Covenant is the continuation of the Covenant God made with David. In His Covenant, Baha’u’llah, Who is a male sperm descendant of King David seated on the throne of King David, passed this lineage down to His son `Abdu’l-Baha. `Abdu’l-Baha continued this lineage in his adopted son, whom Shoghi Effendi placed as the head or president of the future Universal House of Justice, the first International Baha’i Council. This council was Shoghi Effendi’s non-biological son that he had the Baha’i world turn to upon his passing.
There is a wicked witch prophesied in this book of Revelation. This one who fulfills the prophecy for this wicked witch had the “Hands” kill or destroy Shoghi Effendi’s son so she and the rest of the “Hands” could take over the administration for their own aggrandizement and empowerment. They then set up a wall of oppression around their Covenant-breaking violation, forbidding the Baha’i world from using their intellects that God gave them, denying them the right to use the principle of “independent investigation of truth,” which Baha’u’llah gave them so they could know the truth. The “Hands” had to set this wall up, for if their followers were able to investigate the truth they would find they were now in a Covenant-breaking cult. This wall of oppression is an essential part of all Revelations.[ii] It is a test to see if the so-called believers would go against the Covenant for any reason. However, the Bab said the true Joseph is a vine that goes over the wall of oppression.
Jesus was the firstborn of the dead, because He ratified this Covenant with His blood. That is how He saves us from our sins, by ratifying this Covenant with His blood. That is, it is through His Covenant that the Christians are saved.
7 “Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.
8 ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.’”
For the Christians, the “clouds” are the false interpretations of the clergy of Christendom. For the Baha’is, the clouds are the wall of oppression that prevents the wicked followers of Jezebel (Ruhiyyih Khanum) and the Covenant-breaking “Hands” from investigating the truth for themselves. They are wicked because they don’t use the intellects God gave them to know the truth, nor do they apply the principle Baha’u’llah gave them of the “independent search for the truth.” Daniel prophesied: “Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand” (Dan. 12:10).
The prophecy for the one who comes “with the clouds, and every eye will see him,” pertains to Jesus on his second coming. He will be on international hookup on all the TV stations of the world, and on the internet on your computers. Even the people in Central Africa who live in rondavels (mud or straw huts) will see him. This will happen right after New York City is destroyed, the seat of the beast, because of actions by either the US or the UN.
Then “all the tribes on earth will wail on account of him.” To wail is to make mournful and painful sounds. You would think the Christians would be in great joy when they see Jesus returning on a cloud, given the way the Christian clergy puts it. Then why the wailing? It’s because, as put forth by Madam Albright (who is not too bright), “If Iraq bombs New York City, then the United States would wipe Iraq off the face of the earth with a large barrage of nuclear weapons.” Thus everyone will realize that this is the Battle of Armageddon in which one-third of the people will be dead in one hour (Rev. 9:15, 18:17). This war will be fought between the Christian nations, as were the First and Second World Wars. The white race will all but disappear. Christianity can’t even bring peace among Christians, how can it bring peace to the world? Therefore, Jesus Christ never claimed to be the prophesied “Prince of Peace.” He said: “I have not come to bring peace but a sword” (Matthew 10:34). If Jesus was the Prince of Peace, He would be the biggest failure in the world, as we have had nothing but war ever since His advent.
Right after New York City is evaporated there will be 144,000 Covenant-breakers who will repent and come under the provisions of the Covenant. Some of the Covenant-breaking Baha’is will see for the first time that they were wicked for going against the Covenant and, throwing off their shackles, they will return to the Covenant. The rest will die very painful and untimely deaths. As they are spiritually dead now, they will then also be dead physically. They will find in the next life that they are in the outer fringes of the nethermost gloom, for there is nothing worse on this planet than a damn Covenant-breaker.
8 “‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.’”
Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. The first and the last refer to the Divine Manifestations, Who, in Essence, are all the same because they all reveal the same Cause of God. “From these statements therefore it hath been made evident and manifest that should a Soul in the ‘End that knoweth no end’ be made manifest, and arise to proclaim and uphold a Cause which in ‘the Beginning that hath no beginning’ another Soul had proclaimed and upheld, it can be truly declared of Him Who is the Last and of Him Who was the First that they are one and the same, inasmuch as both are the Exponents of one and the same Cause.”[iii]
9 “I John, your brother, who share with you in Jesus the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance, was on the island called Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet
11 saying, ‘Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna, and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.’”
Patmos is an island in the Aegean Sea about 60 miles southwest of Ephesus, about 150 miles east of Athens. It is about 10 miles long, 6 miles wide, treeless, and rocky. John was banished there under the persecution of Roman Emperor Domitian on the Sabbath (“the Lord’s day”). Through spiritual inspiration a voice like a trumpet, meaning that it was clear, told John to write what he saw in a book (the book of Revelation), and send it to the above cities. At the time that John was writing, Christianity had broken up into over 22 sects, with new ones still being created. The seven churches signify the good and bad parts of the Christian beliefs. There was only one that didn’t have anything wrong with it, and that was the church of Philadelphia.
12 “Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands,”
The “seven lampstands” are the seven churches (congregations).
13 “and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden girdle round his breast;”
In some countries, the magistrates wear a silken girdle around their waists to signify their authority. The “golden girdle” signifies that this person has authority from God. Baha’u’llah referred to His Revelation as a robe, and the “son of man,” means he is a man who has a physical father, and here he is the second coming of Jesus the Lamb.
14 “his head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire,”
Jesus on his second coming, at eighty-one years old, fulfills this prophecy. His eyes are sort of red like a flame of fire.
15 “his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace,”
On his feet and his hands his skin is very thin with no fat or muscles under the skin, making his hands and feet look like reddish burnished bronze.
The feet of bronze (brass and tin) “refined as in a furnace,” means his feet are as if they were burned in a fire. The “feet” symbolize understanding, and molten brass is one of the most blinding metals, indicating that his explanations show the splendor of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah. The word “splendor” or glory is the meaning of the word “Baha.”
15 (cont.) “and his voice was like the sound of many waters;”
Revelation 17:15 explains these many waters: “The waters that you saw... are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues,” meaning Jesus the Lamb’s explanations and commentaries establish Baha’u’llah’s Revelation, which will unite the entire world.
16 “in his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth issued a sharp two-edged sword and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.”
The “seven stars” are the angels of the seven churches and the “sharp two-edged sword” that cuts for either good or for bad are his explanations and commentaries. They are so clear that anyone reading them can see that they expose the corrupted teachings of the churches, so they can turn to Jesus the Lamb and be saved. But the miscreants and malefactors are for the fire. He exposes the corrupted takeover of the Baha’i faith by the Arch Covenant-breakers (lawbreakers), the wrongdoers, so that those who are searching for the truth will find it in the explanations of Jesus the Lamb. Those who turn away from Jesus the Lamb are also for Death and Hades, the fire. His face was “like the sun shining in full strength,” for those who have had the good fortune to meet him could see his face shining like the sun.
17 “When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand upon me, saying, ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last,’”
Here Jesus is saying that He is “the first and the last.” He is the first Jesus and the last Jesus that comes at the end of 6000-year cycle, which started with Adam in 4000 BC and ends in 2000 AD. He is Alpha, meaning He is symbolized by the first letter of the Arabic alphabet, the letter "a." There are 27 letters in the Arabic alphabet. Jesus, being represented by the first letter, has the value of 1. The second letter is "b," which signifies the Bab, and has the value of 2. The Bab had 19 Letters of the Living, and 1+2+19=22. The letter "h" represents Baha’u’llah. In the Arabic alphabet, "h" has the value of 5, and 22+5=27, making the full value of the alphabet.
Also, Jesus on His first coming, represented by the first letter "a," has the value of 1; The Bab, represented by the letter "b," has the value of 2; Baha’u’llah, represented by the letter "h," has the value of 5; and Jesus on his return as the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek (Heb. 6:20), again represented by the first letter "a," has the value of 1. Added together, these equal nine (1+2+5+1=9). Nine is the number of ABHA. Nine is the highest single number or the complete number.
18 “and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.’”
What is meant here is Jesus on his return has the keys of Death and Hades, and he has relegated what Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands” set up, which is in opposition to Baha’u’llah’s House of Justice, to Death and Hades. That is, Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands” and all that follow them are relegated to Death and Hades, along with all the followers of all the other apostate religions. All the religions of the world have become apostate. The Baha’i faith became apostate when Ruhiyyih Khanum did away with Shoghi Effendi’s plan, thus going against Shoghi Effendi, therefore going against God by deleting the executive branch from the House of Justice. The Will and Testament, which is the charter for the Universal House of Justice, states, “The legislative body must reinforce the executive, the executive must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself.”[iv] Without the executive branch, there can be no justice, and without justice, there can be no Universal House of Justice. What Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands” set up, a Universal House of Justice without the executive branch, is not Baha’u’llah’s Universal House of Justice. In fact, it is not a House of Justice at all.
19 “Now write what you see, what is and what is to take place hereafter.”
What is to take place hereafter refers to the fact that we are now on the very edge of the great catastrophe in which two-thirds of mankind will be destroyed, with one-third being destroyed in one hour, which is prophesied later on in this book of Revelation.
20 “As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.”
The one that has “the seven stars” in his right hand is Jesus the Lamb. The “seven churches” are the seven alive revealed religions. There are no Adamites left in the world so it is no longer an alive religion. The Adamites have all been absorbed into the succeeding Revelations. Therefore, the first alive revealed religion is Judaism, or the religion of Moses, as found in the Old Testament. The second is Hinduism, the religion of Krishna. The third is Zoroastrianism, the religion of Zoroaster. The fourth is Buddhism, the religion of Buddha. The fifth is Christianity, the religion of Jesus Christ. The sixth is Islam, the religion of Muhammad. There are no Babis left in the world as they have either all died off or have been converted into the Baha’i faith; therefore it is no longer an alive religion. The seventh is the Baha’i faith, the religion of Baha’u’llah. The word angel here means messenger or the Divine Manifestations of the seven religions. The “seven churches” are prognostications or prophecies foretelling what will happen in the last days, which is right now. All of the churches’ religions are guilty of the same things, especially Christianity and the Baha’i faith.

1 “To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: ‘The words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands.
2 I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear evil men but have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and found them to be false;
3 I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name’s sake, and you have not grown weary.
4 But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.
5 Remember then from what you have fallen, repent and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.’”
This refers to the Christian faith and the Baha’i faith. The word “apostles” refers to religious leaders. In the Christian faith, it refers to the clergy of all denominations. In the Baha’i faith, it refers to the “Hands” and their bogus so-called Universal House of Justice. They are bearing up for His name’s sake, meaning they are Baha’is in name only, and they have not grown weary in their endeavor to establish their corrupted form of the administration, doing away with the executive branch. But without the executive branch, they cannot have justice.[i] If they don’t repent, they will lose everything. They have left the love that they had at first, the love of the provisions of the Covenant (Will and Testament). They have created a theology around their violation to justify it.
6 “‘Yet this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.’”
These Covenant-breakers “hate the works of the Nicolaitans,” yet they are the Nicolaitans. In every age there are groups of people who rise in active opposition to the Covenant of the Revelator, who are symbolically like the Nicolaitans and who obstruct the progress of His Cause.
7 “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.’”
To the Christians, “to eat of the tree of life” is to go by the Kabbalah tree given by Abraham, as explained in Chapter 10, Part One of this book. To the Baha’is, ‘Abdu’l-Baha has stated that the tree of life is the Covenant. The Covenant-breakers eat of the fruits of the tree of life, which are the 12 basic principles of the Baha’i faith, but to receive eternal life they must eat of the tree itself, that is, of the Covenant. Unless they abide by the Covenant, meaning all of its provisions, they will surely die. This is eternal death; that is, it is everlasting.
8 “And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: ‘The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life.’”
This refers to Jesus on His first and second coming. As Jesus gave this Revelation, he has returned a second time at the end of this century to give these explanations or interpretations. His authority is through the Greater Covenant. He has come in the prophesied name, address, date, and mission. He reestablishes the International Baha’i Council, which Shoghi Effendi had set up as the embryonic Universal House of Justice, which was his son and was to be his successor, and that the Covenant-breaking “Hands” bypassed to set up their Headless Monster.
9 “‘I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.’”
This refers to the Baha’is who remained true to the Covenant by accepting the son of Shoghi Effendi, which was the first International Baha’i Council with `Abdu’l-Baha’s adopted son, Charles Mason Remey, as its president and continuation of the guardianship. Baha’u’llah was a descendant of King David who was of the tribe of Judah (Jewish), making the guardianship Jewish. Mason Remey, a Gentile (a non-Jew), was, by adoption, grafted into the tribe of Judah. Many claimed to be the continuation of the guardianship and the one succeeding Mason Remey, but they were not grafted in, therefore they are those who are of the synagogue of Satan. Also Rex King, who came to the guardian, Mason Remey, trying to force him to make him his successor, was designated “Satan” by the guardian, Mason Remey.
10 “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
This applies to both Christianity and the Baha’i faith. For Christianity, the “ten days” are the ten centuries, or the thousand years during which the Pope took the Bible away from the Christians and gave the corrupt catechism in its place.
As applied to the Baha’i faith, each day equals one year. The ten days, or years, are from 1959 when the “Hands” dismantled the first International Baha’i Council and set up something else, until ten years later in 1969, when Dr. Leland was incarcerated having the “stone [wall] with seven eyes [watch towers]” before him. After being visited by an angel, Dr. Leland became cognizant that he was the return of Jesus, fulfilling the prophecies in Zechariah chapter 3. Dr. Leland is being faithful and is carrying out all the things that have been put before him. More likely, however, this has not been fulfilled yet. This could take place right after New York is destroyed. According to the prophecies of Nostradamus, the United Nations building will be destroyed, and the city of New York along with it. “Ten days” later this could start World War III, with the United States retaliating with nukes. This war will be fought between Christian nations, with the white race being decimated, nine-tenths being killed.
11 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who conquers shall not be hurt by the second death.”
Whoever arises to sally forth on their trusted steed to conquer the evil and help to establish the Kingdom, will not be hurt by the second death. The first death is the death of the spirit, so those that are alive in spirit will not be hurt with the death of the physical body.
12 “And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: ‘The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword.
13 I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; you hold fast my name and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.’”
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, reestablished Nimrod’s Empire and was the head of the trinitarian religion that was invented and established by Nimrod’s wife Semiramis. Nimrod’s Empire consisted of an area extending from the Middle East all the way to the straits of Gibraltar. Nimrod claimed that his star was Saturn, giving us the name of Satan. He was executed for heresy. His body was cut up into chunks, and a chunk was sent to each nation of his empire. When his wife Semiramis received a chunk of her husband’s body, she became furious and vowed to get even. She became pregnant and claimed that her womb was the habitation of the Holy Spirit, and that the fetus inside her womb was the reincarnation of Nimrod. When the child was born into the world, Semiramis called her son Bar Nin, the son of Nimrod, and claimed he was the incarnation of his father Nimrod. Thus, she created the trinitarian god lie, which consisted of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This trinity doctrine crept into other religions including Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.
After Cyrus the Great, a Zoroastrian believing in the One True Invisible God, conquered the Babylonians in 539 BC, he allowed the Jews that were in captivity in Babylon to go back to the city of Jerusalem and begin to rebuild their temple that had been destroyed by the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar. Cyrus also expelled the pagan religion of the trinity from the empire that he had just acquired. He expelled it to Pergamum. From Pergamum, this religion crept into Christianity. At the Council of Nicaea, this pagan religion was voted in as the official religion of the Roman Empire. In 325 AD, Constantine made an edict that this trinitarian religion was the official religion of the Roman Empire, and that everyone must accept it or be put to death. However, most of the true Christians left Rome and went to the northern part of Europe, where they multiplied. Later, in the eighth century, Charlemagne went up to the Saxons in the northern part of Europe with an extremely large army and forced all these people, after he lopped off a million of their heads, to accept this pagan trinitarian doctrine.
14 “‘But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice immorality.’”
The “food sacrificed to idols” refers to the fact that Christianity was becoming infected with pagan concepts. A common doctrine in all Christianity today is that Jesus’ sacrifice of His physical flesh on the cross gives us forgiveness of sins. This goes along with the concept that God is vengeful and wrathful and demands payment from sinners for their sinning. The payment is death. Christians think Jesus made the payment for their sins with His own death. In order to receive the blessing from this, they must eat His flesh and drink His blood, as it seems to say in the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John. This is called the Eucharist or Communion.
These ideas come from paganism, not from the Bible. The pagans would offer food from their crops to the gods of those crops. They would then eat the sacramental food with the understanding that it was the body of that god, and they would receive a supernatural blessing from this. They would eat the food that had been “sacrificed” to their idol.
Paul explains that it isn’t the food that will harm them, but their belief that this food is the body of the god, that is, it is their idolatry that can harm them.
“Now concerning food offered to idols: we know that ‘all of us possess knowledge.’ ‘Knowledge’ puffs up, but love builds up. If any one imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if one loves God, one is known by him. Hence, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that ‘an idol has no real existence,’ and that ‘there is no God but one.’ For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth - as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’ - yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. However, not all possess this knowledge. But some, through being hitherto accustomed to idols, eat food as really offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled. Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do” (1 Corinthians 8:1-8).
“What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons” (1 Corinthians 10:19-21).
The Christians, who had recently been practicing pagans, were making the mistake of thinking the flesh and blood of Jesus, that is, the bread and the wine, were for real and not just symbolic. They thought Jesus was God incarnate, and that He sacrificed the food of Himself instead of them sacrificing it, and now all that was left for them to do was eat it and they would receive the supernatural blessing of being saved; that is, the blessing of having their sins forgiven so they wouldn’t have to die. They believe they eat Him when they take communion. This trinitarian religion of Pergamum, in the world today as Christianity, holds fast to the name of “Christ,” but when they take the Eucharist, they believe they are eating the body of Jesus and drinking His blood and thus have Christ in them. They do this rather than eating the bread that was a symbol for digesting His teachings and drinking the wine that was a symbol for believing in His Covenant (see John 6:35). This practice of the Christians is similar to the pagans eating the “food sacrificed to idols.” This practice was taught to the Christians by Balamite and Nicolaitan teachers.
15 “‘So you also have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
16 Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth.’”
Thus, Jesus has come a second time and he is warring against the pagan Christians with the sword of the tongue of his mouth. These explanations are the explanations of Jesus on his second coming.
17 “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone which no one knows except him who receives it.’”
To those Christians who conquer (overcome their pagan indoctrination), the promised return of Jesus gives the “hidden manna,” which consists of these explanations. These explanations are not found in any of the Christian or Baha’i writings. therefore they are called the “hidden manna.” The tribes of Israel ate the manna that came down from the sky when Moses took them out into the desert in the exodus.
The “white stone with a new name written on it” is the Greatest Name of God as given by Baha’u’llah. The name of God given by Moses was given to the high priest only. “God” is not the name of God. God is what He is. All the Israelites were allowed to know the consonants in the name of God, which are Y, H, V, and H. However, only the high priest was given the vowels. The full name of God was kept from the Israelites because to take God’s name in vain was against the fourth commandment: “You shall not take the name of God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” The high priest would go into the Holy of Holies once a year and whisper the name of God for the remission of the sins of the people of Israel. Jesus did not give the Christians the name of God. He just called Him Father. But those who become Baha’i are given the new name of God. The name of God was originally written on a white stone, but copies are now written on paper. It is given in either Arabic or Persian letters and is arranged like a logo or graphic so as to make it difficult to read. Each person who becomes a Baha’i is given the pronunciation of that name. When one prays to God and calls Him by His name, God hears their prayers.
18 “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: ‘The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze.’“
This refers to Jesus on his second coming, and these explanations are his explanations.
19 “‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first.’”
The “latter works” of the Christians has to do with the fact that in this day, with the use of modern technology in transportation and communication, Christianity has spread rapidly and extensively around the world. The same thing applies to the Baha’i faith.
20 “‘But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and beguiling my servants to practice immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.’”
In the Christian faith is the doctrine of the trinity that corrupted Christianity, created by Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod. All the idols of paganism have entered into Christianity under new names. Paganism conquered Christianity rather than Christianity conquering paganism. In the Baha’i faith, “Jezebel” is Ruhiyyih Khanum. The “food” is the teachings of Baha’u’llah that are sacrificed to idols of the imagination. Ruhiyyih Khanum has the Baha’is sacrificing the provisions of the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha, including the provision for the executive branch of the House of Justice, as she has completely done away with the head or executive branch, and has her followers eating the food of a Headless Monster, a House of Justice without its head (the executive branch), created by her to replace the food given by `Abdu’l-Baha in his Will and Testament. The “practice [of] immorality” is Covenant-breaking of the worst kind, condemning the mainstream Baha’is to both physical and spiritual death.
21 “‘I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her immorality.’”
God gave Ruhiyyih Khanum the time from the passing of Shoghi Effendi in 1957, to the time of her passing to repent, but she refused to do so.
22 “‘Behold, I will throw her on a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her doings;’”
Those who follow the immorality of Covenant-breaking of Ruhiyyih Khanum are on a sickbed with the worst of all diseases, spiritual leprosy. This will strike her children (followers) dead, physically and spiritually; physically in the oncoming great catastrophe.
23 “‘and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches shall know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you as your works deserve.’”
You Covenant-breakers following Ruhiyyih Khanum (mainstream Baha’is), God knows what is in your minds and hearts. Unless you repent, you will get what you deserve.
24 “‘But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay upon you any other burden;’”
This refers to the Christians who are unaware of the “deep things of Satan.” Covenant-breaking Baha’is are much more stubborn and worse than Christians because the Covenant-breaking Baha’is are loyal to the Arch Covenant-breakers, and therefore they refuse to investigate the matter for themselves. They do this, thinking it will earn them brownie points and move them up in the administration.
25 “‘only hold fast what you have, until I come.’”
The Christians should “hold fast” until the message of the return of Jesus comes to them, avoiding being converted to the Covenant-breaking Baha’is, which is sure death.
26 “‘He who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, I will give him power over the nations,’”
These are those who come under the true Baha’i faith, reestablished by the return of Jesus. Those who conquer will be a part of the true administration that Shoghi Effendi set up, which the Covenant-breaking Baha’is threw out. They will be part of, or the mentors for, the setting up of the World Order of Baha’u’llah.
27 “‘and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received power from my Father;’”
This refers to Jesus on his second coming, who is reestablishing the true Baha’i faith that was broken by the Covenant-breakers. He receives power from the Father, Baha’u’llah, by reestablishing the administration of Baha’u’llah.
28 “‘and I will give him the morning star.’”
The “morning star” is the establishing of Baha’u’llah’s World Order in the world and all the people of the world will come under this World Order of Baha’u’llah.
29 “’He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
This means the people, for their own security, safety, and salvation, should lend their ear to hear these explanations about the prophecies in the Revelation of Jesus, and how these prophecies are being fulfilled.
1 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write: ‘The words of him who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your works; you have the name of being alive, and you are dead.’”
The people in the church in Sardis are those who have fallen into the quagmire. In Christianity, they are those who struggle with Jesus on his return. The more they struggle, the deeper they go down in the bog. Jesus throws a strong cord for them to grab a hold of (his explanations and commentaries). The more they struggle to defend their paganism (three gods in one god), the deeper they go. Some of them have become Baha’is under the violation. Their second condition is worse than the first, for in Christianity they don’t close their minds to the explanations of the Lamb. The Covenant-breakers are also deep into the mire, but they are the most narrow-minded people in the world. They swallow the gobbledygook of their captors. They are told that the ones who are firm in the Covenant are Covenant-breakers. They are so closed-minded that they believe this LIE without investigation, so the strong cord Jesus throws them is rejected. Therefore, they go deeper and deeper into the bog. When their whole body is sunk into this filth, they are dead and unable to grab ahold of the strong cord.
2 “‘Awake, and strengthen what remains and is on the point of death, for I have not found your works perfect in the sight of my God.’”
These Covenant-breakers are under a wall of oppression, forbidden by their slavemasters to know the truth. This oppression keeps them asleep. Here God is telling them to awake and come out from their stupor so they can strengthen that which remains of the truth, but is to the point of extinction; for what they are doing in this great violation is imperfection in the sight of God. Here God is telling the Covenant-breaking Baha’is to come out of this hellhole they are in.
3 “‘Remember then what you received and heard; keep that, and repent. If you will not awake, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come upon you.’”
Here He is telling them to remember the Revelation of Baha’u’llah that they had received, and the plan of Shoghi Effendi that was thrown out by their slavemasters, and to keep that plan and repent from going along with the Covenant-breakers. Also, if they don’t awake, the great catastrophe will fall upon them, and they will lose everything.
4 “‘Yet you have still a few names in Sardis, people who have not soiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white, for they are worthy.’”
There are some in this Covenant-breaking outfit who are innocent; that is, they haven’t gobbled the gobbledygook of the violators of the Covenant, but they don’t know where to turn to get the truth. These innocent ones will grab ahold of the strong cord of Jesus the Lamb, but the goon squad will try to indoctrinate them into becoming full-fledged Covenant-breakers.
5 “‘He who conquers shall be clad thus in white garments, and I will not blot his name out of the book of life; I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.’”
He “who conquers” refers to those who grab ahold of the strong cord of Jesus the Lamb, and are pulled out of quagmire of Covenant-breaking. The “white garments” are the pure teachings of Baha’u’llah. Jesus the Lamb on his return will not blot their names out of his book, the Lamb’s Book of Life, and the Lamb will confess their names to his Father, Baha’u’llah. The angels are the congregation surrounding Jesus on his return.
6 “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
Those who have an ear, that is, those who don’t have earplugs in their ears as the Covenant-breaking Baha’is do, should lend an ear, because God is leading them aright. The Spirit here refers to Jesus.
7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one shall shut, who shuts and no one opens.’”
“Philadelphia” is the city of brotherly love. It is the only city where Jesus finds no defects. This refers to the Baha’is that are raised up by the explanations of Jesus on his second coming. He has the key of David. None of the other Baha’is know that Baha’u’llah is a descendant of King David. If you ask a Baha’i under the violation who Baha’u’llah is descended from, they will say, “Zoroaster.” This is true, but Zoroaster had only daughters, so Baha’u’llah is a descendant of Zoroaster, but through the female line. One of Zoroaster’s daughters married the king, and Baha’u’llah descended from this lineage through Zoroaster’s daughter. Zoroaster means “seed of the woman.”
This lineage of Zoroaster through his daughter united with the lineage of David at the time of Bostanai, who was seated on the throne of David. The first Imam, Ali, arranged the marriage between Dara, the daughter of the last king of the Zoroastrian, Sassanian dynasty, and Bostanai, who was a descendant of David seated on the throne of David. Baha’u’llah descended from this union between Dara and Bostanai.
If you ask a Christian, “What is the meaning of the word ‘Christ’”? They may say, “Lord,” or “God,” or “Savior,” or maybe, “It’s the last name of Jesus, as in Mary Christ or Joseph Christ.” Or they may say, “The anointed.” But the anointed of what? The full meaning of the word “Christ” is an anointed, male (sperm) descendant of King David. The very first verse of the New Testament is, “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Luke gives the true genealogy of Jesus back to King David (Luke 3:23-31). If Jesus was not a son of David through his genetic father Joseph, He could not be the Christ. Christians will tell you that God was the father of Jesus, but if God was Jesus’ physical father, Jesus could not be the Christ, for God is not a descendant of King David.
Paul said in Romans, “Concerning his Son Jesus our Lord, which was made of the seed [“sperma,” in Greek] of David according to the flesh” (Romans 1:3, KJV). Also, for Baha’u’llah to be the return of Christ, He had of a necessity to be descended from King David. The following prophecy refers to Baha’u’llah. ”For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,’ Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this” (Isaiah 9:6,7).
8 “‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.’”
This refers to the Baha’is who have been educated by the return of Jesus the Lamb, who are few in number, and who have “an open door, that no one is able to shut.” That is, whatever they establish that is in accordance with the provisions of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah and the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha, no one can do away with. The return of Jesus set up the second International Baha’i Council with both the legislative branch and the executive branch that the Covenant-breakers (mainstream Baha’is) threw out. The legislative branch and the executive branch are integral parts of one another. They cannot be separated and still be Baha’u’llah’s House of Justice. The Baha’is who are firm in the provisions of the Covenant have kept the word of God (Will and Testament), therefore, that which they set up, and which God will establish in this world, is the true House of Justice.
9 “‘Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie - behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and learn that I have loved you.’”
The word “Jews” here refers to the Baha’i faith. Baha’u’llah was of the tribe of Judah (a Jew); therefore, the believers in His Revelation were prophesied as “Jews.” Here the Covenant-breakers who claim to be Baha’is (Jews) are not, but rather they are a “synagogue of Satan.” In the great catastrophe, these Covenant-breakers will come and beg to get back into the true Baha’i faith.
10 “‘Because you [Philadelphia] have kept my word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial which is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell upon the earth.’”
The Baha’is who have been educated by the explanations and commentaries given in this book, from the return of Jesus the Lamb (Philadelphia), are those who have kept His word, will be kept from the “hour of trial” the nuclear war, which will only last one hour.
11 “‘I am coming soon; hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.
12 He who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.’”
The peoples of any religion who overcome their indoctrination and become part of the congregation of Philadelphia, the Baha’is who have been educated by the explanations and commentaries of Jesus the Lamb on his return, will become as “pillars in the temple of God,” the true Baha’i faith. That is, they will be the strong ones in faith, and in activity, and in teaching and spreading the faith. They will be given the Greatest Name of God. The name of the city of God is “ Baha’i” and Christ’s new name is “Baha’u’llah.”
13 “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
14 And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation.
15 I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!
16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.’”
These are those who are neither for, nor against the Baha’i Revelation or those who are the true Baha’is, so God spews them out of His mouth.
17 “‘For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
18 Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.’”
The gold refers to the golden criteria that the Promised Ones are prophesied by, that is, they are prophesied by name, address, date, and mission. In scriptures, Baha’u’llah was prophesied by the name “Baha’u’llah” (translated into English as the “Glory of God, or Lord”). This is found all throughout the Bible. The address where He is to be found is as prophesied in Isaiah 35:1,2, on Mount Carmel in the valley of Sharon. The date is prophesied in Daniel 12:11 as 1290 days/years; that is, it was 1290 years from the proclamation of Muhammad to the proclamation of Baha’u’llah in 1863. The 1290 years were Muslim calendar years. Baha’u’llah’s mission is that of the Prince of Peace: “For to us a child is born to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called ‘Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’ Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore” (Isaiah 9:6-7).
The “white garments” refer to the explanations and commentaries of Jesus the Lamb, which keep their nakedness of understanding from being seen. The “salve to anoint their eyes” makes it so they can see the proofs showing how the Promised Ones fulfill prophecies. That is, Jesus Christ on His first coming, Christ on His second coming as Baha’u’llah, and Jesus on his second coming as the high priest or Jesus the Lamb, are each prophesied by the name in which they will come, the address where they will be at, the date of their advent, and the nature of their mission. This is so only one person fulfills the prophecies for each Promised One when He comes.
19 “‘Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent.’”
That is, if those whom God has chosen to be His believers at the coming of a Promised One don’t fulfill their calling, God will “reprove and chasten” them. In the Bible, its states that many are called, but only a few are chosen.
20 “’Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.’”
For instance, I send out this message that both the return of Christ (Baha’u’llah), and the return of Jesus have come, and if anyone “hears this voice and opens the door,” Jesus on his second coming will come into their life.
21 “‘He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.’”
“He who conquers” is one who overcomes his indoctrinations into the lies of the clergy, or the lies of the Arch Covenant-breakers. He will be invited to sit with Jesus the Lamb on his throne and share with him in his glory.
22 “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”
What is meant here is, those who don’t have their fingers in their ears, “let them hear what [Jesus] the Spirit, says to the churches,” or congregations, both Christian and Baha’i. ference
1 “After this I looked, and lo, in heaven an open door! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, ‘Come up hither, and I will show you what must take place after this.’”
This doesn’t mean there was a physical door. What was happening was, the “door” of prophecy was open to things that are about to happen now. None of these prophecies pertain to the past, that is, prior to when John received these visions. The bulk of the prophecies are for right now, at the time of the return of Jesus the Lamb, around the year 2000 AD.
2 “At once I was in the Spirit, and lo, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne!”
The “throne” that he saw in the heaven of prophecy was the Davidic throne, and the one he saw “seated on the throne” was `Abdu’l-Baha’s adopted son Mason Remey.
3 “And he who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald.”
The “jasper” is sometimes called the bloodstone, as it is the color of blood. In this case, Mason Remey had inherited the bloodline of King David from his father, `Abdu’l-Baha. `Abdu’l-Baha adopted Mason Remey and gave him a token of this adoption as an inheritance. Shoghi Effendi, as the executor of `Abdu’l-Baha’s estate, delivered to Mason Remey an envelope containing a small packet with blood and hair from Baha’u’llah. A note was written on the outside envelope in Shoghi Effendi’s handwriting:
“Of all the remnants of Baha’u’llah’s all-sacred Person, the most hallowed, the most precious, confidently delivered into the hands of my brother and co-worker in the Cause of God, Mr. Remey” (Shoghi, March 1922).
Another note was hand-written on the packet itself:
“Coagulated drops of Baha’u’llah’s All-Sacred Blood and Ringlets of His Most Blessed Locks presented as my most precious possession to `Abdu’l-Baha’s ‘dear son’ Mr. Charles Mason Remey as a token of my Baha’i affection and brotherly love. Shoghi”
Thus, `Abdu’l-Baha, who was a descendant of King David, adopted Mason Remey, making Mason Remey a descendant of King David. This lineage is to last forever. When Shoghi Effendi placed Mason Remey at the head of the embryonic Universal House of Justice, he was continuing this lineage of David, with Mason Remey and his descendants to be the presidents of the Universal House of Justice. The “rainbow” is a symbol of the Covenant: “I set my bow in the cloud and it shall be a sign of the Covenant between me and the earth” (Genesis 9:13). “Emerald” is green and is a symbol of peace. The Covenant of Baha’u’llah establishes peace in this world. The Covenant-breaking Baha’is broke the Covenant by going against Shoghi Effendi and his plan for establishing the Universal House of Justice. As well, they went against `Abdu’l-Baha by violating his Will and Testament, by doing away with the executive branch which is an integral part of the Universal House of Justice and gives that body justice. Without justice, there can be no Universal House of Justice. These Covenant-breaking Hands, in order to secure their takeover of the administration for their own aggrandizement and empowerment, lied to the believers, saying without any foundation or proofs that Mason Remey had broken the Covenant and that he should be shunned. Without any investigation on the part of the mainstream Baha’is, they gobbled up this poison from this poisonous cauldron of deception, making them so sick on this venom that most of them will never recover and thus, will die in their sins as Covenant-breakers. In order for some of them to recover, God has sent them a physician with the right remedy who is very spiritual and a doctor of natural medicine as well. This is the return of His beloved SON. On His first coming, Jesus gave this Revelation, and on his return, he is the only one who has the correct interpretations of this book of Revelation.
4 “Round the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads.”
These “twenty-four elders” are the twenty-four apostles of the second coming of Jesus the Lamb. They were part of the second International Baha’i Council set up by the Lamb. Mason Remey set up a second International Baha’i Council and then disbanded it, explaining that the head cannot create the body and the body cannot create the head, meaning, that even though Mason Remey was the president, or head of the first International Baha’i Council, as the head, he did not therefore have the authority to appoint the members of the body. Mason Remey’s authority comes through the Lesser Covenant, which is the Covenant that the Manifestation makes concerning His successors. In this Lesser Covenant of Baha’u’llah, there are no provisions for the second guardian to reestablish what the “Hands” threw out. This is the work of the return of Jesus the Lamb, who has authority based on being foretold in the Greater Covenant. That is, he was prophesied in both the Old Testament and in this book of Revelation. He fulfilled the golden criteria of the Greater Covenant, meaning, he was foretold in prophecy by his name, the date he would come, the address where he would appear, and the mission he would accomplish.
5 “From the throne issue flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God;”
This has both a spiritual and a physical explanation. The “throne” is the Davidic throne with the guardian seated upon it. The “flashes of lightning” signify the rapidity with which the message of the kingdom with a descendant of David seated on the throne will flash throughout the world at the appointed hour, enlightening mankind. “Voices” will be heard both for and against. The “thunder” signifies the voices raised in derision by the Covenant-breakers rejecting the guardianship, but mostly raised by the clergy who will be pounding on their pulpits crying, “Antichrist! Antichrist!”
Also at this time, World War III will start and the lightning will be the ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads that will be going to their targets, lighting up the night sky, and the thunder will be the explosion of the nuclear bombs.
6 “and before the throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And round the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind:”
The “sea of glass” is the Revelation of Baha’u’llah and His Covenant that are made clear as “crystal” by the explanations and commentaries of the Lamb. The “four living creatures” are the four nations that are the first to become Baha’i states or nations. Before they became Baha’i, chapter 13 calls them the four beasts because they are secular, not spiritual. But when they become Baha’i through the explanations and commentaries of the Lamb, these living creatures or nations will have “eyes in front,” which means they will foresee the future. They will also have eyes “behind,” meaning they will be cognizant of the past and will have learned a great lesson from it, for one-third of mankind will have perished from the nuclear war which will be over in one hour. This war will be fought between the four beast nations: England, France, the United States, and Russia. All the cities in America with populations of 100,000 or more will be destroyed. After this, they will become the first Baha’i nations. Then they will be living creatures (meaning, spiritual).
7 “the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle.”
The “lion” is the symbol of England. Before Russia became Communist, it had the symbol of the “ox.” After the nuclear war, Russia will again adopt the symbol of the ox. At one time France had the symbol of the fleur-de-lis, but after World War II, it took the symbol of Charles de Gaulle (“the face of a man”). And of course, the symbol of the United States is the eagle.
8 “And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all round and within, and day and night they never cease to sing, ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!’”
An angel is pictured having two wings. A cherub is pictured as having four wings, and a seraph is pictured with six wings. These depict degrees of spirituality. The “eyes all around and within” mean they are cognizant of their spirituality all around them and within.
9 “And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives for ever and ever,”
This is when they accept the guardianship of the Baha’i faith, and it “lives for ever,” meaning there will always be a guardian (descendant of `Abdu’l-Baha), seated on the throne of David and seated at the head, as president of the Universal House of Justice. “For ever” means this guardianship will last at least the duration of the full dispensation of Baha’u’llah, which is to last a half a million years. “Thou hast said, ‘I have made a Covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant I will establish your descendants for ever, and build your throne for all generations” (Psalms 89:3,4). Baha’u’llah, in His Proclamation, on page 89, said He “ruleth upon” the throne of King David. In His Covenant He continued this Davidic lineage by appointing His son `Abdu’l-Baha to succeed Him. `Abdu’l-Baha adopted Mason Remey to be his son, so this lineage would pass to the Gentiles as prophesied:
“The scepter shall not depart from Judah nor a lawgiver [Davidic lineage] from between his feet [reproductive organs], until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be” (Genesis 49:10, KJV).
As you can see, this was in the Plan of God from the beginning. Baha’u’llah was of the tribe of Judah, but this was to pass from the tribe of Judah to the Gentiles when Shiloh comes. The Ark of the Covenant was kept in Shiloh (1 Samuel 4:3) and it is to be returned to Shiloh, and “unto him shall the gathering of the people be.” This Shiloh is none other than Jesus the Lamb on his return. He is to gather the people from all over the globe, who are now with the Covenant-breaking Baha’is, who have been separated from the Covenant by their slavemasters, the Arch Covenant-breakers, Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands.” Shiloh is now in possession of the Covenant, and anyone wanting to come back under the provisions of the Covenant needs to take hold of the strong cord of Jesus the Lamb, which is his explanations and commentaries. If they don’t do this, they will die in their sins, and hell will be too good a place for them.
10 “the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever; they cast their crowns before the throne, singing,
11 ‘Worthy art thou, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for thou didst create all things, and by thy will they existed and were created.’”
The “twenty-four elders” are very busy reestablishing the Covenant (that the “Hands” threw out) back in the world.
1 “And I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals;”
This is the guardian, Mason Remey, who is “seated on the throne” of David, being a descendant of David by being the adopted son of `Abdu’l-Baha. An adopted son has all the rights and privileges of a natural son including the kingship. The “scroll” (or book) written within is the Kitab-i-’Ahd (Book of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah) and that which is written “on the back” is the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha, that `Abdu’l-Baha sealed with seven seals. This Will and Testament shows Mason Remey’s authority to be the guardian.
2 “and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, ‘Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?’
3 And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,
4 and I wept much that no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
5 Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Weep not; lo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.’”
Jesus said He was the root and offspring of David, “I Jesus have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star” (Rev. 22:16). As Jesus gave His Revelation in this book of Revelation, and as He is the root and offspring of David, only Jesus on his second coming can give the explanation of this Revelation. Baha’u’llah, a descendant of King David seated on the throne of King David, is the return of the root of King David. As this is Baha’u’llah’s scroll written inside and on the back and sealed with seven seals, certainly, He could explain His Covenant, as He wrote it; but He didn’t explain His Covenant.
Therefore, only Jesus the Lamb on his return can explain the Covenant (scroll) of Baha’u’llah. Jesus on His first coming was the sacrificial Lamb, but he returns as the Lamb with seven horns and with seven eyes (verse 6). The seven horns are the seven alive revealed religions. Living religions mean those that have congregations. The Adamic religion and the Babi religion no longer have followers. The seven alive religions are Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Baha’i faith. The book that has seven seals is the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha that he sealed with seven seals. What is being said here is that only Jesus on his return can explain the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha.
6 “And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth;
7 and he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne.”
Jesus on his return as the land (Leland), “took the scroll” [out of] the hand of him who was seated on the throne,” the guardian, Mason Remey. Thus, the authority that the guardian, Mason Remey had was taken out of his hands by the return of Jesus. That is, Mason Remey was trying to reestablish the executive branch (that the Covenant-breakers threw out) back into the Baha’i faith. The executive branch is now being reestablished among a whole new contingent of Baha’is who are under the provisions of the Covenant.
8 “And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints;”
The four beast countries, England, France, the United States, and Russia, become the first Baha’i nations through the explanations of Leland the Lamb.
9 “and they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
10 and hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth.’”
The “new song” is the explanations and commentaries like those found in this book. “Priests” means teachers. And “they shall reign on earth” refers to the Baha’i administration (the true Baha’i administration set up by Shoghi Effendi but abolished by the “Hands”), that the Lamb reestablishes.
11 “Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands,
12 saying with a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!’”
Jesus was the “Lamb who was slain” and he returns as Jesus the Lamb with seven horns and seven eyes. As you can see he is the only person on earth that can accurately explain all the verses in this book of Revelation, as he revealed it. Jesus promised salvation to those who believe in him on both his first and second coming. He has now descended from heaven on the clouds of the indoctrinations of both the Christian clergy and the Arch Covenant-breakers of the Baha’i faith.
13 “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying, ‘To him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might for ever and ever!’”
This will come only after the miscreants and wrongdoers are punished and destroyed in the hell’s fire of the oncoming thermonuclear war (Rev. 22:12).
14 “And the four living creatures said, ‘Amen!’ and the elders fell down and worshiped.”
1 “Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say, as with a voice of thunder, ‘Come!’”
Here the Lamb is to explain one of the issues that had been kept secret by God from Christendom and from the Covenant-breaking Baha’is. That is, that the Lamb was to appear in the United States, one of the four living (spiritual) creatures. The other three living creatures are England, France, and Russia. These are also to become Baha’i nations, making them living creatures. America will say, with a voice of thunder that will be heard by the entire world, to come into the Revelation of Baha’u’llah, because the Lamb, Jesus on his return, fulfills prophecy and gives his explanations from America.
2 “And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and its rider had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.”
“White” symbolizes purity. It is without flaw. In this case, it symbolizes the pure religion of God. The “horse” symbolizes power and great strength. The “rider” is a Knight of Baha’u’llah. He was knighted by Shoghi Effendi in March of 1954 as a Knight of Baha’u’llah. He has a “bow” (it didn’t say he had any arrows). This bow is the symbol of the Covenant: “I set my bow in the cloud, and it will be a sign of the Covenant between me and the earth” (Genesis. 9:1). The bow that this Knight of Baha’u’llah is carrying is the Covenant of Baha’u’llah; that is, this knight is the return of Jesus the High Priest, as prophesied in Zechariah 3:1-9. The “crown” is the symbol of authority. A crown being placed on his head refers to the fact that he is Jesus the High Priest: “Take from them silver and gold, and make a crown and set it on the heed of Joshua [Jesus]... the High Priest” (Zech. 6:11). So the knight on the white horse is Jesus the High Priest on his second coming, and he goes out “conquering and to conquer” the evil forces of this world by reestablishing the Covenant of Baha’u’llah that the Covenant-breaking “mainstream Baha’is” threw out. The other horses symbolize evil forces in this world and are seen as a red horse, a black horse, and a pale horse.
3 “When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, ‘Come!’
4 And out came another horse, bright red; its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that men should slay one another; and he was given a great sword.”
Ever since the Russian Revolution, the Russians have been called “the Reds.” The rider is the president of Russia, and he has in his hand the nuclear button. The “great sword” is the nuclear missiles. Thus, he will take peace from the earth.
5 “When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, ‘Come!’ And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and its rider had a balance in his hand;”
The “black horse” is the symbol of the United Nations (UN), and it has “a balance in its hand.” The United Nations balances the trade among the nations. When Roosevelt set up the United Nations, he was going to call the heads of the nations to the Nevada proving ground and explode a nuclear device as soon as it was perfected. He was then going to proclaim Baha’u’llah to the world and have all the nations simultaneously disarm, and give the nuclear weapon to the House of Justice. But he passed on before his plan could be carried out, and the UN became a body without the spirit, a beast. This will be discussed further when we get into chapter 13.
In some states, the picking of a candidate is not by a primary election, but by a caucus. When the two highest candidates are tied and they can’t break the gridlock, they will then pick another candidate who is high on the list of contenders, someone that both the front-runners can accept, and this candidate is thus nominated. This person is called a black horse because he took the place of the higher candidates. In the same way, the United Nations set up by Roosevelt wasn’t set up as the Baha’i Universal House of Justice as Roosevelt intended, but instead the United Nations, the black horse, a beast, a body without a spirit, was set up.
6 “and I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm oil and wine!’”
The United Nations deals with all kinds of problems and situations, such as world trade that is symbolized by “wheat” and “barley,” but it warns, “do not harm oil and wine.” In the Mideast crisis, the United States made war on Iraq over oil. Iraq will be one of the most predominant threats to the United States. Nostradamus predicts that Iraq will get revenge after Saddam is deposed by the US and the UN (blue hats). “When Saddam dies then there will be great destruction.” Retaliation may come from Iraq with the bombing of the UN building with a nuclear weapon that will destroy New York City. It is estimated that ten to 30 million will die in that blast.
“Wine” is the symbol of the Covenant. Just as the so-called mainstream Baha’is broke the Covenant of Baha’u’llah, the United States broke the Covenant of the United Nations by interfering with the internal affairs of a foreign country, making war on Iraq over “oil,” as George Bush put it, “for our own interest.” He owns oil wells in Kuwait. Kuwait is the nineteenth province of Iraq, which England cut off from Iraq in 1921. If this country and the UN don’t stop this monkey business of interfering in foreign affairs against Iraq, it will result in World War III.
7 “When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, ‘Come!’
8 And I saw, and behold, a pale horse, and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him; and they were given power over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts.”
“Pale” is a sign of illness or death (spiritually). This sickness (corruption) is found in the world’s religions (including the Baha’i faith), in its governments, its legal system, its courts, its commerce, in the medical and pharmaceuticals, in fact in almost every phase of human life. And “Death, and Hades followed him; they were given power over a fourth of the earth.” The United States, with its corruption, controls a fourth of the earth with its armaments and its money. It gives aid to a fourth of the earth, such as the state of Israel. In this way the United States controls these nations, threatening famine and pestilence by wielding the power to withhold aid to those nations if they break away from supporting the US in the UN, which these nations might do if they didn’t get this aid from the US. “And by wild [meaning not spiritual] beasts [nations],” are meant the allies of the United States, such as England and France.
9 “When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne;”
Those who were “under the altar” are depicted in the Great Pyramid of Giza as the chamber of the saints, which is directly under the Great Step or altar stone. This altar stone is the period of Babi and Baha’i martyrs. They were martyred for their beliefs in the Word of God from The Bab, the forerunner to Baha’u’llah, and of Baha’u’llah Who fulfilled the prophecies for the return of Christ. There were ten thousand Babi martyrs and twenty thousand Baha’i martyrs. The “Word of God” refers to Jesus who is called the “Word.” The followers of Jesus are called Christians and were martyred by Imperial Rome. However, more Christians were killed by the Holy Roman Empire than by Imperial Rome. At the time of Pepin III and Charlemagne, the Christians killed by them were the ones crying, “Lord, when will you avenge our blood?” And he said, “Wait a little while until the full number come in.” The full number are those who Stalin killed in the Soviet Union, and those who were killed by the beast nations in World Wars I and II.
10 “they cried out with a loud voice, ‘O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before thou wilt judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell upon the earth?’
11 Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.”
“Each were given a white robe,” indicates their sins were forgiven. They were told to “rest a little longer until [their full] number is complete,” after their fellow servants are killed as they were killed. This applies to the martyrs of the religions (Word of God) of The Bab and Baha’u’llah. At the time of the proclamation of The Bab and of Baha’u’llah, ten thousand Babis and twenty thousand Baha’is were martyred. These martyrdoms took place right after The Bab made His proclamation in 1844. This date of 1844 is depicted in the Great Pyramid at the start of the altar stone, which is directly above the chamber of the saints, or the chamber representing the martyrs of true Christianity.
12 “When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale;
14 the sky vanished like a scroll that is rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”
There will be four winds of destruction, and the Bible doesn’t list them in chronological order. This is referring to the last of the four winds. This last wind of destruction is best explained by Charles Hapgood in his book, The Earth’s Shifting Crust, for which Einstein wrote the foreword. It was also explained by the guardian, Mason Remey, who was not only the guardian, but was also a great architect of the highest rank, having graduated from the most prestigious universities. I will give you but a short synopsis:
About every 11,000, to 16,000 years, the crust of the earth breaks loose and slides over the mantle. Between the crust and the mantle, there is a layer of molten magma or lava that is soft and slippery, making it very easy, with only a little force, for the crust to slide, like a person on roller skates. This is caused by the great weight of a lopsided continent in a polar region, which is now evident in Antarctica. The last polar shift took place eleven thousand years ago. The Hudson Bay area was over the North Pole and suddenly the Hudson Bay area moved south and Arctic Ocean moved over the North Pole. In northern Siberia, large herds of woolly mammoths grazed on the lush grasslands and then all of a sudden, within a few hours or days, northern Siberia moved into the Arctic Circle, instantly freezing the woolly mammoths into frozen solid carcasses. For thousands of years the Chinese carried on an ivory trade with the ivory taken from the almost inexhaustible supply of mammoth tusks. Mammoth meat has been served in some of the most elite restaurants in Paris. Some of the mammoths were still standing and were found to have undigested food in their stomachs, and one was found with a buttercup caught between its teeth. At the same time, the continent of Antarctica moved from a lush grassland and coniferous forest, like we have here in Montana, into the Antarctic Circle. The proof of this is that huge coal deposits have been found in Antarctica. In order to have these coal deposits it had to have coniferous forests.
Antarctica is eccentrically located from the South Pole. Antarctica is twice the size of the United States and has large mountain ranges, like we have here in Montana. On top of these mountains, there are large deposits of ice, from a mile to two miles high. This ice has accumulated in the last eleven thousand years. This is at the brim of Antarctica, and each year about 100 feet of new snow is deposited causing these ice-covered mountains to exert pressure on the crust as the earth spins on its axis. This pressure on the crust causes the crust in the eastern hemisphere to move northward. The Greenland ice cap works in tandem with this by exerting pressure on the crust in the western hemisphere so it moves southward. This constant pressure on the earth’s crust is causing the increase in the number of earthquakes that is taking place now. The crust has been doing this for hundreds of years, but in the last few years, earthquakes have increased dramatically.
The further Antarctica moves from the South Pole, the more lopsided it becomes and the faster the crust moves, and the hotter the magma becomes from the friction of the crust on the mantle. The hotter the mantle becomes the more slippery it becomes. Every day now the crust moves faster, and at the appointed hour, God will cause that which will cause the limbs of mankind to quake, then all of a sudden the crust will break loose altogether, and the North Pole will be in the Lake Baikal area of Siberia and the southern tip of South America will move into the Antarctic Circle. The Western Northern Hemisphere will move southward and it will practically move under the water of the equatorial bulge. The lower regions of California will be below the Pacific Ocean and the Baha’i temple in Wilmette that is under Covenant-breakers’ control will be halfway submerged. Missoula, which now is at 3200 feet altitude, will be a seaport. This is what is meant by “every mountain and island will be moved from its place.”
15 “Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the generals and the rich and the strong, and every one, slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
16 calling to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne [the guardian], and from the wrath of the Lamb [Jesus on his return].’”
After this is all over there will be all new maps made, for new continents will arise out of the sea and portions of other continents will be submerged. The old world will be rolled up and a new one will be rolled out in its place. The Covenant-breakers who went against Shoghi Effendi, and did away with his plan, and did away with the executive branch of Baha’u’llah’s administration, will be completely obliterated because they have refused to use the intellects that God gave them and the principle that Baha’u’llah gave of the independent search for truth, thus they will be completely cut off due to their own ignorance. They will be like the Jews who were waiting for the coming of Jesus, but when He came they rejected Him, thus they were ignorant that Jerusalem would be destroyed and they along with it. There is no one so blind as those who refuse to open their eyes. These people are the losers in both this life and the next.
1 “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree.”
Ali is the fifth angel and he is the establisher of the Revelation of Muhammad. Quddus, the sixth angel, is the establisher of the Revelation of the Bab. Leland (the land, Zech. 3:9) is the seventh angel and he is the establisher of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah. The “four angels” came before Muhammad. Paul, the establisher of the Revelation of Jesus the Christ, is the fourth angel. Joshua, the establisher of the Revelation of Moses, is the third angel. Shem, the establisher of the laws of Noah, is the second angel, and Enoch, the establisher of Adam’s Revelation, is the first angel.
At the present time, the four winds of destruction are being held back by the four angels at the River of Euphrates (Rev.9:16).
2 “Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea”
This “angel” is the seventh angel, the establisher of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation, who has the “seal of the living God” in his forehead. This seal is the intellect that is located in the forebrain of the seventh angel. The “sun” is a symbol of Baha’u’llah.
3 “saying, ‘Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads.’”
This means God will keep the catastrophes from happening until the seventh angel has “sealed the servants of God upon their foreheads.” That is, the nuclear war is held back until the seventh angel has sealed 144,000 people on their foreheads, meaning 144,000 people will use their intellects, which are located in the forebrain, to determine truth from falsity, instead of going on blind faith like the indoctrinated Christians who follow the corrupt clergy (who sell Jesus Christ on the cross for the dollar), or like the deluded Covenant-breaking Baha’is who blindly follow the Covenant-breakers’ religious cult created by Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands,” and their invention of a Headless Monster located on Golem Street on Mount Carmel.
4 “And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand sealed, out of every tribe of the sons of Israel,”
Israel means those who strive with God, meaning that of the Baha’is who are under the violation of the Covenant, only 144,000 of these five to eight million Covenant-breakers will use their intellects and read the explanations that are found here in this book, that are given by Jesus on his return, to save his people who will listen.
5 “twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand of the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand of the tribe of Gad,
6 twelve thousand of the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand of the tribe of Naph’tali, twelve thousand of the tribe of Manas’seh,
7 twelve thousand of the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand of the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand of the tribe of Is’sachar,
8 twelve thousand of the tribe of Zeb’ulun, twelve thousand of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Benjamin.”
When Shalmaneser V conquered the ten tribes of Israel in 721 BC, he took them into Assyria (Iraq) and Media (Iran). Baha’u’llah, Who was of the tribe of Judah, which was one of the two southern tribes, came from Iran and made His Proclamation in Iraq. Therefore, the first people to believe in Him were from Iran and Iraq. When Baha’u’llah left Iran to go to Constantinople, then to Adrianople, and then to Acca, those who came with Him were thus a remnant of these twelve tribes. When other people from around the world became Baha’is, they were grafted into these twelve tribes.
When these Baha’is from around the world became Covenant-breakers by going against Shoghi Effendi and the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha, the tribes of Israel were dispersed a second time. Only 144,000 of these Covenant-breakers will come back under the provisions of the Covenant. The rest are for the fire because they refuse to use their intellects that God gave them, and the principle of the “independent investigation of truth” that Baha’u’llah gave them. They remain Covenant-breakers and nobody can save a Covenant-breaker as long as he refuses to know the truth. They are behind a high wall of oppression, created by their slave owners. And as long as they allow themselves to remain behind this wall of oppression, they will never know the truth. Jesus said, “Seek ye the truth and the truth will set you free.” In order for them to seek the truth, they need to be jarred loose from their lethargy. Nothing will jar them loose except a great catastrophe or calamity. This will happen when New York City is nuked from Iraq, which will happen after Saddam Hussein is deposed by the US. When this happens approximately 30 million people will be killed, and 144,000 Covenant-breaking Baha’is will repent and come under the provisions of the Covenant. But the multitude of Baha’is will not come under the provisions of the Covenant until after the nuclear war, which will last about one hour (Rev.18:17,19).
9 “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,”
Here it shows that the people of the world will become believers. They will stand “before the throne” of David with a descendant of David and of Baha’u’llah seated upon it, “and before the Lamb” (the return of Jesus as the Lamb) and they will become spiritual and get white auras (white robes). The palm branches symbolize submission to the Covenant.
10 “and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!’”
Baha’u’llah said kings are signs of God. This refers especially to the Davidic kings who are seated “upon the throne” of David as the guardians at the head of the Universal House of Justice. Salvation comes through these kings on the throne and through “the Lamb” who is the seventh angel, the establisher of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah.
11 “And all the angels stood round the throne and round the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God,”
An angel is a man [generic, i.e., male or female] qualified with heavenly attributes and character. “The throne” is the throne of David with the guardian seated upon it. The “elders” are the twenty-four apostles of the Lamb who are members of the second International Baha’i Council. “The four living creatures” are the United States, England, France, and Russia after they become Baha’i nations. Before that, in the King James Version, these nations are called beasts, as they do not possess a branch of the Holy Spirit.
12 “saying, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God for ever and ever! Amen.’
13 Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ‘Who are these, clothed in white robes, and whence have they come?’
14 I said to him, ‘Sir, you know.’ And he said to me, ‘These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’”
The multitudes “clothed in white robes” are those who “come out of the great tribulation.” This has two meanings. In one case, the multitudes are those who come out of the great thermonuclear war. In the other, Baha’u’llah explains in the Kitab-i-Iqan that the tribulation is the great oppression, and the multitudes are those who come out from under the oppression of what is called “the mainstream Baha’is” or “ Baha’i World Faith,” an oppression that was imposed upon them by the wicked witch Ruhiyyih Khanum and the Covenant-breaking “Hands” when they went against Shoghi Effendi and did away with the “Plan of God” that Shoghi Effendi had set up. After the nuclear war, the multitudes that are left will come out of the oppression that they were under, and will become part of the Baha’i faith that was brought by Baha’u’llah, delineated by `Abdu’l-Baha, set up by Shoghi Effendi, and is now being established in this world by the Lamb, who is the return of Jesus the High Priest. The “blood of the Lamb” is the Covenant. Jesus said the wine and the blood are symbols of the Covenant. Being washed in the Covenant saves those who have been hoodwinked and bamboozled by Ruhiyyih Khanum, the “Hands,” and their phony, headless House of Justice that has no justice at all. The Covenant also saves the multitudes of Christians, and the adherents to other major religions who survive the great catastrophe.
15 “Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night within his temple; and he who sits upon the throne will shelter them with his presence.”
The “temple” refers to the Holy of Holies, which is symbolized in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. This is where the Covenant is placed in the Ark of the Covenant, and the high priest (Jesus on his return) stands before this Ark of the Covenant and takes it out and explains it to those who are teaching the true Baha’i faith. There is only one person in the world who, according to scriptures, is allowed to enter the Holy of Holies and stand before the Ark of the Covenant and interpret the Covenant of Baha’u’llah (Kitab-i-’Ahd) and Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha. Without this interpretation, the people are fuel for the fire.
16 “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.”
“They shall hunger no more” either physically or spiritually, for there will be an abundance of food. They will have the spiritual bread that is the true teachings of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah, and they will drink the pure wine, which is the true Covenant of Baha’u’llah. The nuclear bomb is the same as the sun, in that the nucleus of the hydrogen atoms are smashed into one another causing them to explode. They will be free from the thermonuclear war that is about to fall upon mankind.
17 “For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
The “Lamb in the midst of the throne guides them to the living waters,” which are the waters of life. The waters of life are not only the true interpretations found in this book, but also include the true interpretations of all the Christian and Baha’i prophecies, thus leading all of the peoples of the world to “the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven” that Jesus asked us to pray for, and Baha’u’llah brought. This prayer is called the Lord’s Prayer and it is the only prayer Jesus revealed. This prayer is fulfilled in the Covenant of Baha’u’llah which the Covenant-breaking Baha’is violated, thus leading five to eight million Baha’is astray and into perdition (utter destruction). Through his explanations and commentaries, the Lamb gets the Christians and the Baha’is back on the right track again. The only hope for safety, security, and salvation for anyone is the living waters that the Lamb guides the people to. God so loved the world that He sent His beloved Son, the Lamb, back into the world to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. The main way God tests the people is He sends a Promised One who has been prophesied in Holy Scriptures. Each of the Promised Ones is prophesied by the name that he will come in, the address where he can be found, the date for his appearance, and his prophesied mission. The Lamb fulfilled these prophecies. How can anyone miss him if they use their intellect to examine the proofs?
1 “When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”
This is the start of the four winds of destruction, and a “half an hour” is but just a short period of time between the finishing of this book and the start of the great destruction.
2 “Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.”
This refers to the seven things that are about to happen.
3 “And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer; and he was given much incense to mingle with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar before the throne;”
Gold represents the spiritual, which is from God. The “golden altar” is Shoghi Effendi. The “angel with a golden censer” is the seventh angel who is the return of Jesus the Lamb who is from God. The “golden censer” means the divine censer. The golden censer is the vessel, which holds the incense as it burns. The “golden altar,” or Shoghi Effendi, is the divine altar on which the Baha’i faith is administrated. The Baha’i Covenant-breaking world could not differentiate a handful of gold from a handful of feces, so the deluded followers went with the feces, which is the violation of Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands.” What the “Hands” gave the Baha’is in the place of what God gave us is nothing but a bunch of bull feces. To be polite, I use the French word “feces” here in place of the Anglo-Saxon word that begins with “s” and ends with “t.” The “throne” is the Davidic throne that was to exist forever, which the Covenant-breaking Hands threw out. The “incense” is the explanations and commentaries of the Lamb that “mingle with the prayers of all the saints” who are firm in the Covenant and follow the Lamb wherever he goes (Rev. 14:4). As the advent of the appearance of the Lamb fulfills prophecy, it is required by all to be guided by his explanations and commentaries. For those who are in opposition, their abode is hell and damnation.
This golden altar sits in the sanctuary, prior to entering the Holy of Holies. It is symbolic of sacrifice except animals are not sacrificed here. Rather, incense is offered. The sacrifice is represented here by incense, but it is elsewhere represented by an iron rod, which represents the line of sacrifice of Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab, and Shoghi Effendi. This golden altar is symbolic of Shoghi Effendi, the one who came to set up the administration.
In the temple are boxes and altars. The first lies in the courtyard and is symbolic of Muhammad. The next, as depicted in the Great Pyramid of Giza, is the Great Step, symbolic of the Bab. The next is the golden altar of incense, and the final one is the Ark of the Covenant itself. This is the Universal House of Justice.
In the past, incense was used when a large number of people were assembled into large buildings without adequate ventilation. Due to the fact that people seldom took baths, the stench was so putrid it was almost unbearable, so they used incense to smother or quench the bad odors. How this applies to the world today is that all the damnable corruption in Christianity and in the Baha’i faith stinks to high heaven. The incense here means the explanations and commentaries of the Lamb. The corruptions of Christianity are many. These corruptions have caused great confusion, splitting up Christianity into 22,000 sects and denominations, each claiming they are right and the others are wrong. Thus, they testify against themselves. In the Baha’i faith, the Arch Covenant-breakers have led the five to eight million Baha’is astray. The damage is, they threw the executive branch[i] out of the administration, which is one of the two integral parts of Baha’u’llah’s Universal House of Justice. It includes Baha’u’llah’s descendants, as well as the Davidic lineage including the throne of David that is to last forever. Baha’u’llah said on page 89 of His proclamation that He, “the Ancient Beauty ruleth upon the throne of David.”[ii] Baha’u’llah was a direct male sperm line descendant of King David, seated on the throne of David. He continued this lineage in His Covenant. This is the lineage that the wicked Covenant-breakers threw out. They will burn eternally in hell for that, unless they repent and come under the provisions of Baha’u’llah’s Covenant and the Will and Testament of `Abdu’l-Baha. The “prayers of all the saints” means saints are praying that the old world order will be rolled up and a whole new one will be rolled out in its place.
4 “and the smoke of the incense rose with the prayers of the saints from the hand of the angel before God.”
The incense, which symbolizes the explanations and commentaries of the Lamb, “rose...from the hand of the angel before God,” who is the seventh angel and who is the return of the Lamb. The seventh angel is explained by `Abdu’l-Baha in Some Answered Questions on page 66. He explained that this seventh angel would establish the true Baha’i faith in the world. The “prayers of the saints” are the prayers of those holy ones who remained firm in the Covenant of Baha’u’llah.
5 “Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and there were peals of thunder, voices, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.”
This angel starts this process, symbolized by taking “fire from the altar and throwing it on the earth.” The “peals of thunder” are the clergies pounding on their altars against Baha’u’llah and the angels. There will be voices raised both for and against the Revelation of Baha’u’llah and His World Order. The loud noises are the explosions of the nuclear bombs and the “flashes of lightning” are the missiles lighting up the sky during the nuclear war. The great “earthquake,” one like the world has never witnessed before, will take place after the nuclear war.
6 “Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets made ready to blow them.”
The following events that take place are not in sequence.
7 “The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up, and all the green grass was burnt up.”
This is the nuclear war that is about to take place now. This war will be fought primarily between Europe, America, Iran, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, which is about a third of the planet.
The white race will come almost to an end. They will be an oddity to the rest of the peoples.
8 “The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea;
9 and a third of the sea became blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
This “mountain” is a burning meteor, the size of a great mountain, maybe a mile wide. Baha’u’llah prophesied in the Tablet of the Holy Mariner that this meteor would drive the Covenant-breakers off Mount Carmel. This meteor will heat up when it enters the atmosphere. Because it will become white hot, it will heat up the entire sea, boiling the water. It will cause tidal waves, maybe a mile high, that will cause buildings in coastal areas to wash away.
10 “The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water.”
The “fountains of the water” are the mountains where the rivers get their water.
11 “The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter.”
In the nuclear war, both Russian and US bombs will be involved. The Ukrainian word for “wormwood” is Chernobyl. The connection between wormwood and nuclear fallout became clear when one of world’s worst nuclear power plant accidents happened at Chernobyl.
12 “The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light was darkened; a third of the day was kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.”
When these nuclear bombs explode, they will cause so much debris to be caught up into the air, that in a third part of the earth the shining of the sun, moon, and stars will not be seen, either in the day or night.
13 “Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice, as it flew in mid heaven, ‘Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets which the three angels are about to blow!’”
The “eagle” pertains to the United States, as its symbol is the flying eagle. “Mid heaven” is between the earth and outer space, that is, in the atmosphere. It is in the United States (in Montana) that the return of Jesus is found, and he is telling the world that this nuclear war is just one phase of the great catastrophe. There are three “woes” to come, meaning that the nuclear war will be the first woe or wave of destruction. During the second woe, a meteor the size of a great mountain will hit the earth. This will cause such a jar to the earth that the world will suffer the greatest earthquake it has ever been experienced, probably twelve on the Richter scale, and if it hits in the sea it will cause great tidal waves, maybe a mile high, that will wash away many people. It will probably hit in or near the Mediterranean Sea and wash the Covenant-breakers off Mount Carmel. It was prophesied by Baha’u’llah in the Tablet of the Holy Mariner that a burning meteor will drive them out. Then the last of these woes is the earth’s shifting crust.
The first eleven verses in this chapter refer to Islam.
1 “And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key of the shaft of the bottomless pit;”
This “star” was Omar, one of the strongest of the believers of Muhammad. When Muhammad made His proclamation, it was to Omar, Abu Bakr, and Ali. Omar drew out his sword and cried that if anyone comes against Muhammad they would have to pass over him. When Muhammad was on His death bed and His head was resting in the lap of His youngest wife, He was telling the believers that were with him in that room that they should turn to Ali as His successor. However, there was a lot of buzzing going on among those present. They were of in opposition to having Ali succeed Muhammad. Ali wasn’t present in that room. At the time, he was out somewhere taking care of some religious errand. Muhammad, seeing that they were in opposition to His choice of Ali, cried out, telling them to get His secretary. He was going to have His will written down. But the buzzing kept going on, deciding what they should do. Some said He was delirious with a high fever and didn’t know what He was saying. At that time, Muhammad died. Omar immediately ran out of the tent and there was a large number, maybe thousands, of the faithful, waiting to get some news, knowing their beloved Muhammad was very sick. Omar raised his hands high and cried out that the beloved prophet had just passed away. Then a great cry went up from the multitude, “What will we do, what will we do?” Then Omar raised his hands once more and said, “We will elect a successor, and I nominate Abu Bakr.” Then another cry went up from the multitude in one acclaim: “Abu Bakr, Abu Bakr.” Thus, they elected Abu Bakr to be Muhammad’s successor. When Ali returned from his mission and heard what had taken place, and that nothing now could be done to change it, he had no other choice but to go along with it, as he didn’t want to have a division. Thus, the corruption in Islam took place upon the death of Muhammad.
The first thing Abu Bakr did was to go into the Middle East, declare war on Rome and take over the whole Middle East, although Muhammad said the Muslims could only have defensive wars.
Abu Bakr set up his headquarters in Damascus. The Bani Umayya, who were enemies of Muhammad, had been forced to surrender to Muhammad. They decided since they could not win, they would join the Muslims and then try to take over Islam. Thus, when Abu Bakr set up the throne in Damascus, the Bani Umayya made another kind of war. Mu’awia, the son of Abu Suffian, the arch-enemy of Islam, went down into Arabia and raised up a strong army of staunch supporters of Islam by telling them lies, similar to the way the Christian clergy from the beginning told lies upon lies.
2 “he opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft.”
The “bottomless pit” is the pit of error. Abu Bakr’s army, on its way up to Damascus, stopped off in Egypt and acquired chariots, for the Egyptian chariots were the finest made. When they got to Damascus, they were not allowed to kill Muslims as it was against the teachings of Muhammad.
3 “Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth.”
The “locusts” were these chariots. The “scorpion’s” sting is in its tail. Two men rode on these chariots, with one driving the chariot and the other sitting backwards between the legs of the driver, with a blowgun that shot darts. These darts were poison-tipped, but the poison didn’t kill, it only made their victims very sick to the point that they wished they were dead.
4 “they were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green growth or any tree, but only those of mankind who have not the seal of God upon their foreheads:”
Muhammad forbade a scorched earth policy in warfare. The seal of God on their foreheads means they used their intellects to accept Islam. Muhammad said they didn’t have to believe, but they must be obedient to the Koran.
5 “they were allowed to torture them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torture was like the torture of a scorpion, when it stings a man.”
When these chariots went through the streets of Damascus, the people came out to witness what was going on. As the chariots passed by, many of the people were stung with these darts. The purpose of this was to have them turn against the leadership of Abu Bakr, and put the Bani Umayyads at the head of Islam.
6 “And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death will fly from them.
7 In appearance the locusts were like horses arrayed for battle; on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces,”
The “crowns of gold” signify that they were spiritual Muslims, but duped.
8 “their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth;”
That is, the Arabs had long “hair like women,” whereas the Muslims in the Middle East who had been under Roman rule had short hair and were clean-shaven. The Muslims in Arabia, prior to accepting Muhammad, ate raw meat and filed their teeth so they were able to tear raw meat apart like carnivorous animals.
9 “they had scales like iron breastplates, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. These breastplates were their armor.
10 They have tails like scorpions, and stings, and their power of hurting men for five months lies in their tails.”
In the “tails” of the chariots were dart blowers. When the Bani Umayyads drove their chariots in the attacks, one man would stand to drive, while another would sit backwards between his legs. The one sitting would use either a bow or a blowgun to shoot poison arrows at his victims as they lined up along the sides of the streets to watch the chariots that were driven by “women.”
11 “They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abad’don, and in Greek he is called Apol’lyon.”
The “king over them” was Mu’awia. In Hebrew, he is Abad’don, and in Greek, he is Apol’lion, meaning the destroyer.
13 “Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God,”
“Horns” in this sense are symbols of sovereignty. This originated with Nimrod who took the horns off the bull and placed them on his own head, showing his sovereignty over the herd or empire of many nations. The “four horns” here represent four nations, which today hold the veto power on the Security Council of the United Nations. They are the United States, England, France, and Russia. President Roosevelt set up these four nations, along with China, to be the charter members of the United Nations. These four nations will be the first Baha’i nations. These four nations, represented by “four horns of the golden altar before God,” are on the altar of sacrifice because they are to be the sacrifice to establish peace in the world. The war will be fought primarily between these four nations, and all of their cities with a population of one hundred thousand or more will be destroyed. A third of mankind will be killed.
14 “saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.’”
These “four angels” who are over the four nations, have been holding back the nuclear war. They are bound “at the great river Euphrates.” The river Euphrates flows through Iraq, where the great city Babylon was located, and where Nebuchadnezzar ruled over his empire. When Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the city of Jerusalem, he brought the Davidic king and his throne to Babylon. Baha’u’llah descends from this lineage of Davidic monarchs in Babylon.
This is also the place, in the city of Baghdad, that Baha’u’llah was exiled to and where He made His proclamation to His first believers. Today, this is the place where the United States made an illegal war on Iraq, as the US was interfering in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation. They killed thousands of innocent Iraqis, men, women, and children, and then had the United Nations slap sanctions on these men, women, and children, causing mass starvation, suffering, and other types of horrors including the deaths of nearly half the babies. The American people allowed this to happen because they were fed all kinds of sick propaganda by the media, which is the mouthpiece of the beast. The day of reckoning is fast approaching where the bread that the US cast on the waters will return to them sevenfold. Nostradamus prophesied that Saddam would get his revenge for the evil that was cast upon his country. This retaliation will be in the form of a nuclear strike on the United Nations building in New York City, “the seat of the beast” (Rev. 16:10, KJV), which will destroy the entire city of New York. This will start World War III (the battle of Armageddon, Rev. 16:16).
15 “So the four angels were released, who had been held ready for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, to kill a third of mankind.”
The “hour, the day, the month and the year” are already predetermined, and it will happen precisely according to God’s time scale. Jesus said: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only” (Matt. 24:36). Therefore, the Son on his return won’t know the day or the hour, as it says that the Son won’t know, but only the Father, Baha’u’llah, will know. I don’t know of any place where Baha’u’llah revealed the day and the hour. However, the month and the year are knowable. This will happen right after Iraq nukes New York, in retaliation for what the US and the UN have done. What would happen if the Iraqis should happen to depose the president of the United States? You can be sure that the United States would retaliate severely.
16 “The number of the troops of cavalry was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number.”
As this will be a nuclear war, there will not be very many people engaged in fighting this war. The president of Russia will press the button and then the president of the United States will retaliate and press the button, and that will be just about it. Therefore, this applies to the megatons, or the amount of nuclear energy that will be unleashed in the nuclear war.
17 “And this was how I saw the horses in my vision: the riders wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire (hyacinth) and of sulfur, and the heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, and fire and smoke and sulfur issued from their mouths.”
In the King James translation, it isn’t sapphire at all but “jacinth” which is “hyacinth” and this is colored brownish, reddish, or orange zircon (golden). These colors are the colors of the explosion of a nuclear bomb.
18 “By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur issuing from their mouths.”
A “third of mankind” will be killed by these three things: “fire, smoke, and sulfur.” There are three ways that a nuclear bomb kills. First is the radiation of the bomb. If you get 1000 RADs of radiation you will die instantly as it will destroy your nervous system. The next thing that comes is the heat that also will kill you immediately. The third thing that kills is the percussion.
19 “For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; their tails are like serpents, with heads, and by means of them they wound.”
These are not “horses” at all. They look more like snakes that propel themselves with their tails. This is what John saw in his vision: a nuclear missile that is propelled by its “tail” and the “head” is a nuclear bomb.
20 “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot either see or hear or walk;”
As you already know, the nuclear war will be fought in only a third part of the earth: Europe, America, the Middle East, and Russia. The people in Mexico and Central and South America are for the most part Roman Catholics. Their clergy will tell them that, because of their Icons (idols), they were saved from this great destruction, and the people will take on a much stronger belief in their idols. This will also be true in Asia and Africa. In Asia, the 800 million Hindus, Episcopalians, and Buddhists are also idol worshipers. In China and in India the same thing exists. They all worship the idols that they pray to, and they will all believe their idols saved them.
21 “nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their immorality or their thefts.”
