BOOK OF REVELATION
FINAL CHAPTER TWO
Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)
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.'"
THE "angels" of the churches, which John is told to address
in these verses, are the angels, or the establishers of these seven
religious congregations which are before the throne to be judged.
The church in Ephesus are those in that city, which is the congregation
that had certain beliefs and conduct that was somewhat praiseworthy,
and some that were not. This observation of the congregation of
Ephesus is the conceptions of all the religious sects of Christianity
today, and of the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is." The one
that walks among them, who is the one who holds the seven stars
in his hand, is Jesus the Lamb, who is among the various sects of
Christianity today, and the Baha'i faith. That is, "the seven
golden lampstands" are the religious congregations of Jesus
Christ and the Baha'i faith. The one that walks among these congregations,
of the Christian denominations and the Baha'i faith today, is the
return of Jesus the Lamb.
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;'"
today the Lamb finds some very good beliefs and deeds among the
various denominations of Christianity, and among the Covenant-breakers,
which are admirable and praiseworthy, such as piety and living the
3: "'I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for
my name's sake, and you have not grown weary.'"
these verses God does acknowledge the good works of the churches
and the Covenant-breakers.
4: "'But I have this against you, that you have abandoned
the love you had at first.'"
first love is that of the Revelation of Jesus Christ: the Beatitudes,
which were the eight declarations made by Jesus in the Sermon on
the Mount, and included such things as love of God, the love of
one's neighbor, etc. This was either put aside, or became secondary
to the theologies that replaced them, such as the Trinitarian doctrine,
the Incarnate god Lie, the literal interpretation of parables, such
as that of the resurrection of Christ and the story of Adam and
Eve, and the instituting of observances and rituals. In other words,
the churches have turned away from the true Religion of God, abandoning
His Laws and Teachings to invent and obey their own self-made dogmas
the Covenant-breakers, they for the most part live the life, some
are exemplary. They are also reverent, obeying the laws and the
ordinances such as the nineteen-day fast, etc. They take good care
of the Baha'i property, and engage in the teaching work. But they
went against Shoghi Effendi on his passing. To go against Shoghi
Effendi is to go against God. They did
away with his plan for the Universal House of Justice.
It was to go through four stages: 1. It was to become a World Court
on Mt. Carmel in 1963, with its members being the ones that Shoghi
Effendi had appointed. 2. Then sometime later its Body (not the
President as he is the Guardian—because it is hereditary)
would be elected, and 3. It would then become the International
Baha'i Tribunal, which would bring peace to the world. 4. It then—in
the fullness of time—would effloresce (blossom) into the Universal
House of Justice. In 1957, the Covenant-breakers
did away with the Executive Branch of the UHJ, which is an integral
part of the Universal House of Justice.
If God had not sent His Son, the last Jesus, to reestablish what
the Covenant-breakers threw out, the great catastrophe that is upon
us would have destroyed all of mankind, and God would have to raise
a whole new mankind out of the sea.
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.'"
that in the catastrophe that is upon us, this "lampstand,"
the beliefs, will be destroyed and the people that cling to these
false concepts will perish.
tells the churches to remember His Religion and give up what they
have invented. He tells them that if they do not obey His Laws and
Teachings, He will remove their religion from them and they will
6: "'Yet this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans,
which I also hate.'"
Nicolaitans were a sect in early Christianity who believed in licentious
living and eating of food sacrificed to idols. God commends those
churches who have not accepted these ways.
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.'"
who has an ear" are those people who desire to know the true
religion of God, who hear what the Spirit, Jesus the Lamb, has to
teach them. By using the intellect we are able to determine the
truth and then "hear what the Spirit [Jesus on his return has
to say] to the churches," Christians sects and the Covenant-breaker.
That is, they can discern truth from falsehood.
who conquers" are the people who are able to overcome the false
teachings of the apostate church, Christianity: such as the Incarnate
god Lie, the Trinitarian doctrine, and the literal interpretation
of the resurrection and other parables of the Holy Text. And for
the Covenant-breakers to turn to the last Jesus and to give up their
fetish, obsession and mania, of Covenant-breaking.
tree of life" is the Covenant of God which Baha'u'llah revealed.
It is symbolized in part one of this book in chapter 10 page 127.
paradise of God" is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah's Revelation.
All those who recognize and accept the Revelation of Baha'u'llah
will enter the Paradise of God.
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.'"
is more teachings and conditions of the Christians and Covenant-breakers.
The "first and the last" is the first Jesus who gave this
Revelation, and the last Jesus who gives his explanations and commentaries.
The teachings of the first Jesus died and come to life with the
last Jesus. For the Covenant-breakers, they died spiritually, and
those Covenant-breakers that turn to the last Jesus come to life,
and enter the Kingdom; the Kingdom that has the descendant of King
David at the head of the Universal House of Justice.
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.'"
that call themselves Jew and are not, because a true Jew would have
accepted their Messiah, the first Jesus, and today a true Jew is
one that accepts the second Messiah, or Christ, Baha'u'llah, and
the last Jesus. Therefore they are a synagogue of Satan.
poverty here is the poverty of not knowing Jesus on his return,
the last Jesus, and thus they are deprived of his saving grace which
is the knowledge that will save them. Paul tells us: "But as
it is, he [Jesus] has appeared once for all at the end of
the age, to put away sin by sacrifice of himself. And just
as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment,
so Christ (Jesus) having been offered once to bear the sins of many,
will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those
who are eagerly waiting for him" (Hebrews 9:26-28). "but
you are rich" means that the Christians are rich because they
have the prophecies for the return of Jesus, the Lamb, that are
put forth in this book, that Leland—the land—fulfilled.
Thus the Jews are poor because they don't have these prophecies,
that if they had them, they wouldn't perish in the great Catastrophe.
tribulation, or afflictions, that the Christians suffer are first
of all that the Christians suffered at the time of Charlemagne (c.
742 - 814 AD), king of the Franks, with Pepin before him brought
all of Europe that was non-Catholic into the corrupt Catholic church
or congregation not by persuasion of teaching, but by the sword.
Those Christians that were thus abused and forced
to accept the corruption of the trinity and the Incarnate god Lie,
and all the other corruption, such as the worship of idols, and
saints, and Mary and Jesus, instead of the one true invisible God.
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.'"
devil was the Pope. The prison that he threw some of the Christians
in "prison for ten days" is that the ten days are ten
centuries of tribulation. This started when the Pope took the Bible
away from the Christians and they were forbidden read to the Bible.
They were given the Catechism in its place. This is a gross corruption
of the scriptures. Even the priests were not allowed to read the
Bible. This made it possible for the Papacy to bring in all kinds
of heresies, and all kinds of rituals and observances, to extract
a tremendous amount of money from the people; making the Catholic
church the most lucrative business in the world, making it the wealthiest
enterprise throughout the entire world. This is tribulation that
the Christians were to endure for ten days that are ten centuries:
one thousand years.
"crown of life" is the halo. It signifies the spiritual
station, which one acquires when they are in communion, or association,
with the Spirit Jesus on his return. This is also essential to our
spiritual progress in the next world.
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
explained before, this pertains to what the Spirit, Jesus the Lamb,
the last Jesus, says to the Christian population of the world. "he
who conquers" are those people who overcome the theologies
of the very corrupt church by using their intellect to discern what
is true or false. And for the Covenant-breakers, those that overcome
their violation of the Covenant, through the explanations and commentaries
of the Last Jesus, will not be hurt by the second death, which is
the death of the physical body.
second death" refers to our physical death. If one accepts
a religion that is not the true Religion of God he becomes spiritually
dead. This refers to all the sects of Christianity, and the Covenant-breaking
Baha'i faith. This is the first death. If you turn to the Lamb,
and become a Baha'i that has both the executive and legislative
branch in the Universal House of Justice, and teach, and live the
life according to the teachings, the physical death is not painful
to us, since through that death we attain our spiritual station.
On the other hand, should we not be alive "spiritually"
the agony of our physical death is truly "hell."
12: "'And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: 'The
words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword.'"
one who has the sharp two-edged sword is the second coming of Jesus,
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.'"
 claimed that his star was Saturn, and
this is where we get the word Satan. After he was put to death for
apostasy, his wife, Semiramis, several years later, became pregnant
with a male child. She explained to the people that the father of
the child was Nimrod (the father) that mysteriously impregnated
her womb; and this was possible as her womb was the habitation of
the Holy Spirit; and when the son was born, and named Bar-nin (the
son of Nimrod), that he was the incarnation of his dead father,
which was a lie. This created the Pagan concept of the trinity.
Three gods in one god: God the father, God the son, and God the
holy spirit. This doctrine formed a new religion and its purpose
was to regain control of the vast empire of Nimrod. Whereas Nimrod
ruled by the force of an army, this religion ruled the former empire
by this new religion—that they paid tribute to Semiramis and
her son Amraphel and his descendants. When Bar-nin grew up, she
made and gave him the name Amraphel, entitled him the Pontifix Maximus,
the high priest, and built a temple for him. She made him a beautiful
robe and other paraphernalia that was passed down to his descendants.
The religion of Semiramis became the Pagan religion of all the world.
It appeared in all of the civilized parts of the world: India, China,
Israel, Greece and Rome.
the king of Babylon, a descendant of Amraphel wore this robe of
the Pontifix Maximus being both priest and king; and he sat upon
the throne of Satan, or Nimrod. Nebuchadnezzar had an empire, rivaling
the great Pagan empire of Nimrod. He destroyed the city of Jerusalem
and brought the Davidic King and his throne into Babylon. Later
when Cyrus the great conquered Babylon, he being a Zoroastrian,
believing in the one true invisible God, he banished from Babylon
the Babylonian king, Belshazzar (a descendant of Nebuchadnezzar)
out of the empire to the city of Pergamum, which was the capitol
of the nation of Pergamum. Therefore Pergamum is the place of Satan's
throne, the throne of Nimrod and Semiramis.
was the seat of Emperor worship, where incense was offered before
the statue of the Emperor as God. Refusal of Christians to do this
often meant death. These people also had an altar to Jupiter, and
a temple of Esculpius who was a healing god worshipped in the form
of a serpent. Pergamum was also a stronghold of Baalomite and Nicolaitan
teachings. It was a center of heathenism and wickedness and was
called "Satan's throne" because it was moved there from
throne of Satan was willed to Rome by Atlas the Third in 133 BC.
Then Julius Caesar, who said that he was a descendant of Semiramis
and claimed this throne, greatly increasing his power and authority.
This throne was then passed down in the succeeding Caesars until
Gratian who refused to wear this robe. Damasus, the Pope begged
Gratian to give him the robe, which he put on. At that time most
of the Roman Empire had become Christian, but the Pagan temples
in the city of Rome were going full blast. Then when Damasus walked
out in the streets of Rome, the Pagans said, "There is our
King and leader," and they came into Christianity with all
their Pagan beliefs and rituals. Many of the Bishops and Priests
of Christianity fled to upper Europe. They would have no part of
this. So Damasus brought the Pagan priests out of the temples and
placed them as Christian priests without conversion of baptism,
to replace the true Christian priests. Thus Paganism conquered Christianity,
instead of Christianity conquering Paganism.
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.'"
describes Balaam as those "who loved gain from wrongdoing"
(2 Peter 2:15). In this verse, it is the clergy of Christianity
"who hold the teaching of Balaam." They create a theology
so that they can set up their own business—sect or denomination—and
therefore they lead the followers of Christ astray with their theologies
such as trinitarianism and the Incarnate god Lie.
15: "'So you also have some who hold the teaching of the
of the Christians have a licentious living just as the Nicolaitans
16: "'Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and war
against them with the sword of my mouth.'"
sword of my mouth" are the explanations of Jesus on his return.
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.'"
hidden manna" is the hidden bread, or the hidden meanings of
the Words of God that were not explained by previous Promised Ones,
but are being explained by the Lamb that you are now receiving.
his explanations, the whole world will become believers in Baha'u'llah,
and will receive the new name of God that was originally written
on white stone. When a person accepts Baha'u'llah's Revelation as
the true Religion of God through the explanations of the Lamb, then
they will know the new name of God. This is further explained in
Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" who already have this name
of God, are Baha'is in name only.
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.'"
Son of God" refers to the potency of the Revelation of Jesus
Christ. It is the spirit of prophecy of the Kingdom, which is fulfilled
by Baha'u'llah and explained by the Lamb who fulfills the prophecies
for the return of Jesus.
19: "'I know your works, your love and faith and service
and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first.'
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.'"
has the same meaning as harlot. The Revelation of Jesus Christ was
like a beautiful woman, a bride adorned for her husband. The clergy
with their false interpretations, especially the Trinitarian doctrine,
corrupted this "beautiful woman" until she became a harlot.
appropriately to the Baha'i faith: Jezebel was the wife of Ahab,
the king of the tribes of Israel that broke from the corrupt kings
of Judah. Jezebel went against the true teachings of Israel, leading
them into corruption, causing Elijah to take hundreds of her priests
up on Mt. Carmel and killing them. So this is repeated in the Baha'i
faith with Ruhiyyih Khanum doing the same damn thing. This Jezebel
has led astray over five million Baha'is, causing them to go against
Shoghi Effendi, and his son who succeeded him. On January 9, 1951
Shoghi Effendi set-up the first International Baha'i Council, with
'Abdu'l-Baha's son (a descendant of King David) as its President
or head, which would go through four stages, and then this body
will be in its adult form of the Universal House of Justice. Ruhiyyih
Khanum tried to murder this son of Shoghi Effendi as she murdered
him. This son of Shoghi Effendi escaped and
came to America where he was born in this world as the second International
Baha'i Council with a descendant of 'Abdu'l-Baha, a great grandson,
as its president. This lineage of King
David will exist forever (Psalms 89:35-37). Whereas Ruhiyyih Khanum
will suffer the fate of Jezebel: "And the dogs shall eat Jezebel"...(2
Kings 9:10). "So they threw her down; and some of her blood
spattered on the wall and on the horses and they trampled on her"
(ibid., verse 33). ".... In the territory of Jezreel the dogs
shall eat the flesh of Jezebel" (ibid., verse 36). "and
the corpse of Jezebel shall be as dung on the face of the field"
(ibid. verse 37).
21: "'I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent
of her immorality.'"
corrupt religions were given time to give up their false teachings
but they did not.
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;'"
that accept the theologies of the clergy will be thrown into the
tribulation of the great catastrophe, that is, they will get the
disease of the harlot—Jezebel. This also applies to the Covenant-breaking
"Baha'is." The sickbed is the disease of Ruhiyyih Khanum,
it is Covenant-breaking, and those who get her disease are Covenant-breakers,
which is spiritual death, and if they don't repent they will also
suffer the fate of Jezebel.
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.'"
children" are the followers of the various sects and denominations
who are offshoots of the seven apostate religions, and of the Christians,
who are divided up into 22 thousand sects and denominations.
the Baha'i faith, the children are the followers of Ruhiyyih Khanum,
who are like children that don't think for themselves but follow
blindly their parent Jezebel.
and her children, because they have not given up their false religions,
are thrown "into a great tribulation." This tribulation
begins right after the assassination of Saddam Hussein. All those
who are deluded by the sickness of her theologies will not recognize
Jesus on his return and will not be guided by him. And the Covenant-breakers
that are deluded by Jezebel, Ruhiyyih Khanum, are destined to go
into the fire, that is, the thermonuclear war.
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'"
deep things of Satan in Christianity is the belief of the resurrection
of the physical body, the trinity, the Incarnate god Lie, idolatry,
praying to Jesus, to Mary, to saints or the crucifix, or to anything
else but God—for if you pray to anything else your prayer
goes to what you pray to and not to God, and you're still in your
sins. In the Baha'i faith it is Covenant-breaking, it is going against
Shoghi Effendi. It is the removal of the Executive Branch of the
Universal House of Justice. Not using the intellect that God gave
us, and the principle that Baha'u'llah gave us to determine for
yourself who broke the Covenant—who went against any provision
of the Covenant.
25: "'only hold fast what you have, until I come.'"
people who do not accept the doctrines and theologies of the corrupt
religions will not be faced with the tribulations that the leaders
of these religions and their followers will experience. And for
the Baha'is that are under the provisions of the Covenant to hold
fast to what they have.
26: "'He who conquers and who keeps my works until the end,
I will give him power over the nations,'"
the Christians, those that conquer are those that overcome the great
sickness of the various sects and denominations and become part
of the World Order of Baha'u'llah that will have power over the
the Covenant-breakers to come under World Order of Baha'u'llah that
has both the Executive Branch and the legislative branch of the
Universal House of Justice that will have power over the nations.
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'"
is the return of Jesus the Lamb who is not a Manifestation of God
and rules with a rod of Iron, whereas Baha'u'llah, who is a Manifestation
of God who rules with a rod of Gold. Therefore he received power
from the teachings of Baha'u'llah, the Father, and he will rule
until he has put all thing under his feet, then he will turn it
all over to the Father.
28: "'and I will give him the morning star.'"
morning star" is the World Order of Baha'u'llah when it is
established. The night will be over. This is the day that will not
be followed by night. That is, we will have a thousand years of
peace. This day will start at the end of this century.
29: "'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says
to the churches.'"
"Spirit" means Jesus. Let those who have an ear that doesn't
have a finger in it, so he can hear what Jesus the Lamb has to say.
