BOOK OF REVELATION
Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)
1: "Then I saw another portent in heaven, great and wonderful,
seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with
them the wrath of God is ended."
A portent is an indication or sign of what is to happen—especially
of something momentous or calamitous. These will be the plagues
or calamities that will have to befall mankind before they will
give up their evil ways and opposition and hostilities to the Covenant,
and to the Lamb that God had sent to establish the Revelation of
2: "And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled
with fire, and those who had conquered the beast and its image
and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with
harps of God in their hands."
of glass" symbolizes the Revelation of Baha'u'llah which is
clear, like "glass," with the explanations and commentaries
of the Lamb—how easy this Revelation is to understand. The
other revelations of previous Manifestations are like rivers that
lead to the sea.
is "mingled with fire" showing that the nuclear holocaust
must take place in order for God's Revelation to be established.
who are "standing beside the sea of glass" are the people
who become believers in Baha'u'llah or come out of the great violation
of the Covenant-breakers, through the Lamb's explanations and commentaries;
and of course of the other revelations, like Christians, that are
now coming into the Revelation of Baha'u'llah by the Lamb's explanations.
3: "And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God,
and the song of the Lamb, saying, 'Great and wonderful are thy
deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are thy ways, O
King of the Ages!'"
song of Moses" is the three portions of His Covenant: the promise
of what would be if the people obeyed that covenant, the warning
of what would be if they did not and the promise for the re-gathering
of God's Chosen with the re-establishment of the temple, the presence
of God (Deuteronomy chapters 38-30), including the Covenant and
the High Priest, the return of Jesus the High Priest after the Order
of Melchizedec (Hebrews 6:20 and Zechariah 3:1-9).
song of the Lamb" is the explanations that he gives for the
Revelation of Jesus, as found in this book of Revelation.
4: "'Who shall not fear and glorify thy name, O Lord? For
thou alone art holy. All nations shall come and worship thee,
for thy judgments have been revealed.'"
who survive the four winds of destruction will worship God and serve
Him by establishing His Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. The
severity of mankind's chastisement will prevent him from ever turning
away from God the way that he has in this present cycle of man's
5: "After this I looked, and the temple of the tent of witness
in heaven was opened,"
Manifestation of God has given His Revelation with a Potency befitting
that time in which He Appeared. The revelation of Jesus was of the
potency of the "Son." The Bab as the Door, and Baha'u'llah
as the "Father." It is symbolized by a "Temple,"
for the potency of the Bab is that of the Sanctuary, and Baha'u'llah's
Revelation is that of the Holy of Holies; and in the Holy of Holies
appears the Ark of His Covenant. The Lamb fulfills the prophecies
for the re-establishment of the High Priest—for he being the
High Priest after the Order of Melchizedec, he stands in the Holy
of Holies, before the Ark of the Covenant, and takes out of the
Ark, the Covenant of Baha'u'llah and the Will and Testament
of 'Abdu'l-Baha (the scroll), and by his explanations he re-establishes
the Covenant that the Covenant-breakers had violated, and that led
the "mainstream Baha'is" astray. The only one that is
allowed to go into the Holy of Holies and do this is Jesus the High
Priest after the Order of Melchizedec (Hebrew 6:20).
6: "and out of the temple came the seven angels with the
seven plagues, robed in pure bright linen, and their breasts girded
with golden girdles."
seven angels" are the four angels who are bound at the River
Euphrates (Rev. 9:14) that are now holding back the nuclear war.
That is, they are holding back the "four winds of destruction."
The fifth angel is Ali, the sixth angel is Quddus, and the seventh
angel is Dr. Leland Jensen, who is Jesus the Lamb.
seven plaques" are the various afflictions that will befall
mankind as the result of the nuclear holocaust.
bright linen" symbolizes the spiritual bodies—auras—of
breasts girded with golden girdles" means that these angels
will be God's judges.
7: "And one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels
seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives for ever
8: "and the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of
God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until
the seven plagues of the seven angels were ended."
temple was filled with smoke" meaning that the Covenant of
Baha'u'llah and the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha
is clouded with smoke or a veil, that is, it wasn't understood by
the rank and file Baha'i. Because of this the Arch Covenant-breakers,
Ruhiyyih Khanum and the "Hands," got control of the administration,
the properties, and the moneys—that is, got their hands in
the cookie jar. The smoke clarifies that Baha'u'llah did not break
the seven seals. That which Baha'u'llah, 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi
Effendi did not explain was left until the Lamb appeared, for he
was the one who was prophesied to clear out the smoke.
of God" is English for the Aramaic word "Baha'u'llah."
seven plagues" must take place to eliminate those non-believers
who do not want to understand or accept God's Revelation, and the
Covenant-breakers remain in violation to that Revelation.
