BOOK OF REVELATION
Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)
1: "And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns
and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous
name upon its heads."
THE beast is the United Nations. It is a beast because it is secular,
lacking the spirit. It was set up by F. D. Roosevelt who died before
he could spiritualize it with the Revelation of Baha'u'llah. Roosevelt
was secretly a Baha'i. This was because it was politically unwise
to let this be known.
sea" is the sea of God's Revelations beginning with Adam and
horns" are the Oil Producing Arab Countries (OPEC), who were
formerly part of the dragon, the Ottoman or Turkish Empire, but
who gained their independence when the dragon was conquered by the
beast in 1921. They then joined the beast. These countries are:
Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria
and Saudi Arabia.
diadem is a crown, so the "ten diadems" refer to the kings
or rulers of these ten OPEC countries.
"seven heads" represent the seven alive, revealed, apostate
religions which exist in the world today. These religions are the
Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Zoroastrian, Muslim and Baha'i.
of these religions carry a "blasphemous name," meaning
that each religion became corrupt through the interpretations of
the clergy and governments of nine nations which came into existence
from these various religions; and by the interpretations of the
Arch Covenant-breakers of Ruhiyyih Khanum and the Covenant-breaking
2: "And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, its feet
were like a bear's, and its mouth was like a lion's mouth. And
to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority."
description of the beast is symbolic. "Leopard" represents
the Holy Roman Empire. The word leopard is a contraction
of the French word pard for panther and the Greek word
Leo which means lion. Leo—lion—was originally
the symbol of the Saxon people, and pard—panther—was
the symbol of the Francs. When the Saxons and Francs were amalgamated
to become part of the Holy Roman Empire, their unification formed
the body of the beast and their symbol became the leopard.
the 11th Century, the Russian Orthodox Church broke away from the
Holy Roman Empire. They have the bear as their symbol. Therefore,
the "feet like a bear's" represents Russia, after it became
atheistic in the Soviet Union.
the 16th Century, England, led by Henry VIII, also broke away from
the Holy Roman Empire. England had once been ruled by the Saxons,
so the symbol of England became the lion. So it is, that the mouth
"like a lion's" represents England.
this same beast will be described having wings of an eagle. The
eagle represents the United States. Daniel, chapter 7 verse 4, sees
this eagle being plucked off the lion. This represents the United
State's Declaration of Independence, which took place on July 4,
1776, making this country independent of England.
dragon" again refers to the Bani Umayyed or Ottoman (Turkish)
Empire, which in 1921 was conquered by the beast.
"power" of the dragon is the oil. When these countries
joined the United Nations they gave the beast "his power and
his throne and great authority."
3: "One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its
mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed the beast
head with a "mortal wound" represents the Zoroastrian
Religion of Persia, which was once the largest empire in the world.
In the 7th Century the Muslims went into Persia and conquered the
Zoroastrian people, almost causing complete obliteration of that
religion. A small fragment of believers did remain, and that religion
continues to exist, but these followers were never able to rebuild
4: "Men worshipped the dragon, for he had given his authority
to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, 'Who is like
the beast, and who can fight against it?'
5: "And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and
blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for
Islamic faith, which had been taken over by the dragon, had almost
conquered the entire Roman Empire, and a lot of Christians were
converting of their own free will from the Christian faith to Islam.
Part of this conversion was due to the fact that the Aramaic version
of the Bible prophesied Muhammad by name. And a great deal of the
conversion took place due to the realization of the people that
the Christians had become idolaters. In their churches and homes
were found icons or statues and pictures of their imagination of
what Mary looked like with the divine child in her arms that the
Catholics prayed to, and statues and pictures of their imaginations
of the likeness of Jesus, that Christians said their prayers before.
This was pure Idolatry that is forbidden in the second commandment.
III, who was the Emperor of Rome at that time, was very disturbed
about this mass conversion that was taking place. He called a synod,
meeting, with a large number of senators and bishops around Europe.
The decision was made that idolatry had to go. Leo III then issued
a decree that all the idols in the churches should be destroyed.
He sent out an army called the iconoclasts to destroy all idols:
statues, pictures, as well as murals in the churches, as well as
the cathedrals. They were successful in destroying all the idols
of the Christian churches in the Roman Empire. However, when Leo
the III's army reached the City of Rome they were opposed by a large
army of Italians who had been raised up by Pope Gregory II to drive
these men back to Constantinople, and therefore save the statues
(idols) in the Roman Catholic Church and Northern Italy. This same
Gregory II later became known as the Pope Gregory II.
King Leo III issued his decree that all idols in the Christian churches
should be destroyed, Pope Gregory II then wrote a letter of rebellion
to the Emperor, Leo III, separating the Province of Italy and the
City of Rome from the Roman Empire. This act was prophesied in II
Thessalonians 2:3 KJV: "Let no man deceive you by any means:
for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first,
and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition." This
man of sin is mythical Jesus, that statues or pictures of him were
placed in the temple to be worshipped as God in the place of God.
Gregory II sent this letter of rebellion to Leo III, a document
known as the Donation of Constantine was sent to Stephens II at
the Court of Pepin. This was the year 754 AD. The document was said
to have been written by Constantine the Great during the 4th Century.
In truth it was a false document, which had been forged in Rome
by either a monk, or by Christophorous, a papal notary who delivered
the document to Stephens II. By this, another prophecy of Paul was
fulfilled: "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,
that they should believe a lie" (II Thessalonians
Constantine document proclaimed that "the Bishop of the Holy
Roman Church should be higher than, and prince over, all the Bishops
in the whole world; and that all things concerning worship of God
and belief of Christianity, to be undertaken or confirmed, are determined
by his Judgement." In other words, the rights of Peter should
be given to the Bishop of Rome.
thousand years passed before the Catholic Church gave up the claim
that the Donation of Constantine Document was valid. "Since
the middle of the 19th Century the contents of the Constantine Grant
have been considered fraudulent by the Catholic Party."
beast had its beginning in 731 AD, when Gregory II wrote his letter
of dissidence to Leo III, separating the City of Rome and Italy
from the Byzantine Empire, and the Province of Italy and the City
of Rome began its war of independence from the Roman Empire. In
this war, the Papacy was aided by the Franks who were a Germanic
tribe living in Gaul, which is now called France. These Franks were
Trinitarians and had as their symbol the pard (panther). On December
25, 800 AD, the Papacy crowned Charlemagne, King of the Franks,
to be the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. By force, Charlemagne
had conquered the Saxons, forcing them to become Trinitarians and
to be a part of the Holy Roman Empire.
Saxons were also a Germanic people, living in what is now Germany.
They had the Leo—lion—as their symbol. When these two
Germanic tribes were forced to become united under the Papacy they
formed the body of the beast which now rules the world. Their symbol
became the leopard.
its beginning in 731 AD, the beast is given power to "exercise
authority for forty-two months." Using the time scale of the
Holy Text, which is one day is as a year, these forty-two months
are twelve hundred and sixty (1260) years. The beast is given the
same amount of time as the dragon had, to rule the world. By adding
1260 years to the year 731 AD, we see that the beast will come to
its end in the year 1991 AD. This is the year that the establisher
of the Baha'i faith, Dr. Leland Jensen set up, on January 9, 1991,
the second International Baha'i Council that will go through four
stages to become the Universal House of Justice.
6: "it opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God,
blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell
"blasphemies against God" are the false teachings and
lies invented by the clergy of this beast. Because of these lies,
the true religion of God has been made corrupt, and is now apostate.
The mass of mankind has been led astray by these lies which the

conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and
people and tongue and nation,"
started to take place at the time when the Holy Roman Empire was
saints" represent the one million Christians who were killed
by order of the Papacy in the inquisition, because they would not
accept trinitarianism, and the lies which the Papacy had created.
8: "and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one
whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world
in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain."
"foundation of the world" is the second International
Baha'i Council that was formed by the second coming of the Lamb
on January 9, 1991, and will become the Universal House of Justice
by the end of this century.
"who dwell on earth" are those who accept and follow the
corrupt teachings of the beast. That is, those that don't accept
the Lamb's explanations. They are deflected from this by following
the theologies of the church, and by the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is."
foundation of the world" also refers to God's purpose for mankind
from the beginning. This purpose is explained in Genesis chapter
1, verse 6: "And God said, 'Let us make man in our
image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and
over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth.'"
refers to the Manifestations of God: i.e. Adam, Moses, Sri Krishna,
Zoroaster, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, the Bab and Baha'u'llah. These
Manifestations were the likeness of God, because they were endowed
with the Holy Spirit and reflected God like a mirror reflects the
sun. God's purpose for mankind was that man would also become in
His Image by turning to these Manifestations and acquiring the Divine
qualities which They reflected.
people who "worship" the beast can never achieve that
purpose which God has intended for them; therefore, their "name
has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book
of life of the Lamb that was slain."
9: "If any one has an ear, let him hear:
10: "If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes;
if any one slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain.
Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints."
the nations of the world have established themselves with great
force and the consequence is that they will fall by the sword. They
are doomed to suffer their downfall in the same fashion in which
they established themselves, and this includes America.
11: "Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth;
it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon."
"beast" represents what is left of the dragon when it
came to an end in 1921.
"two horns" symbolize the two main Islamic sects: the
Shi'ite and the Sunnis, which has its headquarters in Iraq.
12: "It exercises all the authority of the first beast in
its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship
the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed."
first beast" is the leopard beast described in verse two.
Islamic nations will cause the thermonuclear war, which is the first
wind of destruction. This is now taking place. With the UN's and
the United States' devastating war on Iraq (their killing of innocent
men, women, and children, and small babies in Iraq), they were meddling
in the internal affairs of a sovereign democratic country, as Kuwait
was the nineteenth Province of Iraq. The United States (the big
bully on the block) now is going to try and assassinate Saddam Hussein.
The code name for this is "Jackhammer." Should they succeed
to assassinate the president of a sovereign democratic country,
Iraq will retaliate by bombing the UN building with a nuclear bomb.
This would demolish the entire City of New York, and the radiation
would spread one hundred miles in all directions killing millions.
Madam Albright (who isn't too bright) said if Iraq should do this,
the United States would utterly destroy Iraq with nuclear weapons.
When any of the super powers uses nuclear bombs in this fashion
we are into World War III.
13: "It works great signs, even making fire come down from
heaven to earth in the sight of men;"
"fire" which comes "down from heaven" is the
thermonuclear war which the Arab nations will trigger by their actions,
in response to the big bully.
14: "and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the
presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding
them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the sword
and yet lived;
15: "and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the
beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to
cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be
order to get the Germanic people to accept the idols of the church,
the sorcery of the priest craft got the statues to come alive by
having them bleed (goats blood), making their eyes to move, and
even causing the idols to speak (by recording devises placed inside
the statues). Thus, "it deceives those who dwell on earth."
image of the beast" is the crucifix. When the Holy Roman Empire
was being established, Charlemagne carried the crucifix in one hand
and a sword in the other. If the people did not accept the Trinitarian
beliefs, which the crucifix represented, he would have their heads
chopped off. Thus, this image brought the beast into existence,
with millions of people in northern Europe and the Saxons (Germany)
being put to death by Pepin's and Charlemagne's army.
16: "Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich
and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand
or the forehead,"
the people of Islam it is customary to pray five times a day at
specific times. When they pray they must touch their foreheads to
the ground. In order to avoid breathing in the dust when they do
this, they cover their mouths with their hand. The result is a dust
mark on their hand and on their forehead. This is the mark prophesied
in this verse.
said in the Koran that this mark refers to his followers: "The
mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of [their] prostration.
Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel
[Book of Revelation]."
17: "so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark,
that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name."
the corrupt Islamic faith, which had replaced the true religion
of Muhammad, the rights of non-Muslims in the Islamic Empire were
completely laid aside. These people were treated in the most cruel
manner imaginable. For example, if a Christian should accidentally
brush the coat of a Muslim as the two were walking down the street
he would be put to death.
these people (non-Muslims) were not followers of this corrupt Islamic
religion they did not abide by the law of prayer described in verse
16. Therefore, they did not bear the mark on their hand or forehead.
Muslim merchants or traders would not do business with someone who
did not have the mark. To do so he would risk punishment, even possible
18: "This calls for wisdom: let them who has understanding
reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its
number is six hundred and sixty-six."
most translations of this Holy Text the number of the beast is given
as 666. However, as it states in Footnote G of the Revised Standard
Version, to Revelation 13:18, "other ancient authorities read
six hundred and sixteen (616)," six hundred and sixteen is
the correct "number of the beast." As explained before,
this beast is the corrupt Islamic religion, which began when Abu
Sufian first opposed Muhammad. In 616 AD, Abu Sufian became Emir
of Mecca. He was Muhammad's chief persecutor. His son, Mu'awia,
brought the dragon into existence and laid aside the true Islamic
faith. Therefore the number of the beast is 616 AD as that was the
time it came to exist.
