Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)

Verse 1: "Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, 'Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.'"

"A loud voice" signifies that this message will be heard and understood by a large number of the people—of the things that are going to fall upon man, because the Christians have not recognized the return of Christ in Baha'u'llah, and because the Baha'is have broken the Covenant of Baha'u'llah.

Verse 2: "So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshipped its image."

The plague from the first angel is the radiation burns in a nuclear war. This will affect those within a one hundred mile radius of the target areas for those who are not killed by the blasts, and are not in proper shelters to protect them from the radiation. This will take place in the Muslim Middle East, as they are the ones who have the mark of the beast on their foreheads and on the back of their hands, and among the Christians who worship the image of the beast, the crucifix. This beast is the four nations that have the veto power on the Security Council of the United Nations (England, France, the United States and Russia), and thus they rule the world, but they will get into a fight among themselves, specifically Russia and the United States with its allies of England and France.

Verse 3: "The second angel poured his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a dead man, and every living thing died that was in the sea."

This plague is the nuclear attacks on the submarines, which are positioned in the seas. No living thing, man or creature, will survive these attacks in the immediate area where these bombs are detonated.

Verse 4: "The third angel poured his bowl into the rivers and the fountains of water, and they became blood."

"the fountains of water" are the snow capped mountains which melt and form the rivers, thus they are the fountains of water. These are man's source of drinking water. The plague of the third angel is the radioactive fallout which falls into the rivers, and onto the snow capped mountains contaminating them and making that water deadly for those who drink it.

Verse 5: "And I heard the angel of water say, 'Just art thou in these thy judgments, thou who art and wast, O Holy one,'

Verse 6: "'For men have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink. It is their due!'"

Every time a Promised One of God appears, the people are worshipping the previous Manifestation, but are the enemies and persecutors of the one God sends to them in their day. Jesus said: "Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites for you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, saying, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets'...You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell?" (Matt. 23:29-33). Today the Christians are going to church and worshipping Jesus as God, and on Christmas they celebrate, in a big way, his birth, although Jesus has returned as the Lamb and is among them now. When Jesus returned as the door (John 10:7), the Bab, He and ten thousand of his followers were cruelly put to death. And when he returned as the second coming of Christ, Baha'u'llah, He was thrown in a dark dungeon for 4 months, then exiled, and finally sent to the prison of Acca for twenty years. Today Jesus has returned here in America as Jesus the Lamb, but the people are adoring Jesus on his first coming as God and praying for him to come again, looking at the sky instead of heaven for his return, believing the lie that his physical body went up into heaven. Because of this they are like the people of the past, going by the interpretations of the clergy and becoming the enemies of Jesus the Lamb. Because of this God is going to pour seven bowls of wrath on the earth, and on the sea, and on the rivers, and fountains of waters.

Verse 7: "And I heard the altar cry, 'Yea, Lord God the Almighty, true and just are thy judgments!'

Verse 8: "The fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch men with fire;"

The plague of the fourth angel is the intense heat, which results from the fusion of the nucleus of two hydrogen atoms. The nuclear bomb duplicates what occurs in the sun. Its heat is the same as that of the sun. The earth and mankind will be burned as a result of this plague.

Verse 9: "men were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give him glory."

"Glory" is the English translation of the Aramaic (language that Jesus spoke) "Baha." The nuclear war will be fought over one third of the earth. In those areas, which are not involved in this exchange of bombs, people will become even more idolatrous, claiming that the gods of their religions are what saved them.

Verse 10: "The fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne (seat, KJV) of the beast, and its kingdom was in darkness; men gnawed their tongues in anguish

Verse 11: "and cursed the God of heaven for their pain and sores, and did not repent of their deeds."

"The fifth angel" again refers to Ali who promoted the Revelation of Muhammad. The Muslims martyred the Bab and ten thousand of his followers and placed Baha'u'llah in the dungeon of Tehran and had Him exiled and persecuted Him and placed Him in the most great prison in Acca for twenty years, and now the bulk of the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" are in Iran. Clearly these areas of the world are not free from sin. After the United States assassinates Saddam Hussein, Iraq will bomb the UN building in New York City, which is the Seat of the Beast.[1] Fallout will cover an area of 100 miles radius in all directions, and 30 million people will likely be killed. The nuclear war is not to be limited to the United States and Europe, but will include a large portion of Islam.

The Revelation of Muhammad so overpowered the Christian doctrine which the Papacy (the false prophet) had invented of the Incarnate god Lie and the trinity, that the leaders of that tenet—in order to save it—taught their followers that science and learning were unclean. They destroyed the libraries and institutions of learning and then descended into the dark ages of ignorance, poverty, disease and squalor.

The only way they could cling to the false doctrines they had invented that brought them into the dark ages was to avoid accepting the Revelation of Muhammad. The dark ages of Europe were so dark that there was no written history of what transpired for two hundred years. This was at the time of Caliph Al Rashid, when Islam was entering into its most brilliant age of enlightenment in science and civilization. They invented the university education system. They established the first Universities in the world: at Damascus, Syria, Alexandria, Egypt and Cordova, Spain. The Europeans started sending their sons to the University of Cordova, which brought Europe out of the dark ages and into the Renaissance.

Verse 12: "The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, to prepare the way for the kings from the east."

"The sixth angel" is Quddus.

"his bowl" is the earthquake which took place on July 9, 1850 immediately following the martyrdom of The Bab. This earthquake caused the Euphrates River, which until that time had emptied into the Persian Gulf, to change its course and empty into the Tigris River, and its bed was dried up.

"the kings from the east" are Baha'u'llah and His Descendants who will sit upon the Throne of the Davidic Kingship.

Verse 13: "And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs";

"the dragon" is the corrupt Islamic faith.[2] The "mouth of this dragon" is the lamb with two horns[3]—Shiite and Sunni Islam.

"The beast" is the four world powers united in the United Nations on the Security Council, that rules the world, which has not received the Divine Spirit of Baha'u'llah.

"The false prophet" is the Papacy and clergy of Christendom, that led astray the Christians; and in the Baha'i faith, Ruhiyyih Khanum, who led astray the "mainstream Baha'is," making them Covenant-breakers.

"three foul spirits" symbolize the corrupt and apostate teachings of these three powers. They are compared to "frogs" in that frogs live in slimy marshes, along with slithering reptiles, to show how undesirable these spirits really are.

Verse 14: "for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty."

"they are demonic spirits" means they are as demons; they have no likeness of God. The United Nations has separated religion and statehood, and the Papacy is the prophet of the anti-christ who invented and fostered the Incarnate god Lie. The anti-christs are those who are opposed to Jesus' lineage through his father Joseph back to King David. (See Luke 3:23-31 and Romans 1:3). The meaning of the word "Christ" is an anointed male sperm descendant of King David. The Christians are taught that God was the physical father of Jesus. If that was so, then Jesus could not be the Christ, for God is not a descendant of King David.

Verse 15: "'Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake, keeping his garments that he may not go naked and be seen exposed!'"

"coming like a thief" is a warning that the Spirit of God will appear while the mass of the people in the world are asleep in their traditions, interpretations, materialism, and Covenant-breaking. For instance, the "mainstream Baha'is" don't know that they are Covenant-breakers because they didn't use the intellect that God gave them or the principle that Baha'u'llah gave them to independently investigate for themselves who is or who is not a Covenant-breaker. They just follow blindly the arch Convent-breaking "Hands." I once asked a thief how he robs a house. He told me that he first cases the joint to see if there is a dog or some sort of alarm system. Then, some night when it is real dark out, he slowly and cautiously raises a window and lets himself in. Then he goes and collects the jewels and puts them in his bag, and lets himself out and closes the window behind him—and then he is off. The householder doesn't know that he has been robbed until some time later. "He who is awake" are those who are not lullabied asleep by false leaders. They will recognize the Spirit, Jesus, when He appears a second time. The one who collected the jewels is the Lamb, and the jewels are those who use their intellect to investigate the truth for themselves. Jesus said, "Seek the truth and the truth will set you free." The Christians who belong to one of any of the 22,000 sects of Christianity are for the most part firm in their false beliefs, and the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" are in bondage, prevented, by being oppressed by the Arch Covenant-breakers from investigating the matter for themselves, through the threat of expulsion and shunning. This narrow mindfulness will lead to their destruction in the on-coming catastrophe. Jesus has returned as the Lamb to set free any that will listen to him. The rest will die in their sins.

"garments" are the true beliefs based on proofs. Don't ever accept some thing just because some person or group of people say so, like the clergy, or the "Hands." Go to the text of the scriptures or the writings of Baha'u'llah, 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi, and see for yourselves. For instance, for the Baha'is, go to the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, on page 15, and see that the true Universal House of Justice has both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch. The Covenant-breakers have only the Legislative Branch, whereas those who are turning to Jesus the Lamb have both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch.

"that he may go naked and be seen exposed" means that those who recognize the Spirit have a true understanding of God's Revelation which is the white garment. Those who are not awake do not recognize the Spirit of God (Jesus). 'Abdu'l-Baha referred to the spirit of God as Jesus. When He appears, he will be ashamed of their ignorance and wrongdoing. They will be ashamed to "go naked and be seen exposed" meaning that their sins are glaring.

Verse 16: "And they assembled them at the place which is called in Hebrew Armageddon."

The battle of "Armageddon" will be over the state of Israel. The plain of Maggedden is in that state. The Arab states that surround Israel do not recognize the right of Israel to exist. In order to eliminate Israel, the oil will become the issue, which causes the nuclear war between the nations.

Verse 17: "The seventh angel poured his bowl into the air, and a great voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, 'It is done!'"

"the seventh angel" is one of the titles of the return of Jesus the Lamb who is Dr. Leland Jensen that fulfilled prophecies, like both Jesus and Baha'u'llah fulfilled.

"his bowl" is his explanations and commentaries. In April 1980, he was interviewed by television and radio stations all over the world. When the 144,000 believers are gathered, he will once again be heard around the world, everyone will see him and he will pour his bowl of God's wrath in the air—television, radio, and the internet.

Verse 18: "And there were flashes of lightning, loud noises, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as had never been since men were on the earth, so great was that earthquake."

This verse refers to the four winds of destruction, which will follow the gathering of the 144,000 believers; and with the seventh angel's explanations being heard around the world.

"the loud noises" will be the cries of mankind, pro and con, as they hear his explanations, and the detonations of nuclear bombs.

"the great earthquake" happens when a great meteor, like a huge mountain hitting the earth—jarring it so the cities of the nations fall—will be followed by the Earth's Shifting Crust which will take place at the time appointed by God Almighty. This will be the fourth and final wind of destruction which is let loose upon mankind.

Verse 19: "The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered great Babylon, to make her drain the cup of the fury of his wrath."

Spiritually, the "great city" represents the Law of God. That Law has been divided into three parts; the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions. The three parts also are to live the life, to teach the Cause, and to be firm in the Covenant. If any one of these parts is missing the Holy Spirit is cut off.

The "cities of the nations" are the many denominations, which have come into existence through these three religions.

When the four winds of destruction have all been let loose upon mankind "great Babylon," as well as those denominations which have sprung from her, will give up their false doctrines and become followers of the true Religion of God.

Materially, the "great city" refers to the city of Jerusalem. During the Earth's Shifting Crust—which is the fourth and last wind of destruction to be let loose—this city will be divided into three parts, as a fault runs through Jerusalem. A part will slide northward, and another will slide southward, and part will stay where it is at.

Verse 20: "And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found;"

This verse also refers to that time following the Earth's Shifting Crust. There will be many changes in the structure of the earth. As the western hemisphere of the earth slides southward, about two thousand miles, many mountains will be moved out of their place—that is, in relation to the stars up above; and islands will be submerged. New mountains and new islands will be formed where there were none before.

The spiritual meaning of this verse is that those things which are the cause of division among mankind will disappear.

Verse 21: "and great hailstones, heavy as a hundredweight, dropped on men from heaven, till men cursed God for the plague of the hail, so fearful was that plague."

When the nuclear bombs explode, great amounts of dirt and water will be sucked up in the mushroom cloud, or thrown above the atmosphere, where the temperature may be minus two hundred forty degrees. This water will freeze and fall back to earth as hailstones, weighing tons.
