Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)

Verse 1: "Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, 'Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who is seated upon many waters,'"

"THE great harlot" is the Trinitarian Roman Catholic church that has corrupted the religion of Jesus Christ with the Trinity. The trinity crept into Christianity when the Pagan Greeks and Romans that held to that doctrine became converted to Christianity. The trinity was invented by Semiramis, the widow of Nimrod in about two thousand BC. She claimed that Nimrod impregnated her womb, which was the habitation of the Holy Spirit, sometime after he was executed for heresy, by the 72 judges of the court in Egypt, and that the baby was the son of and the reincarnation of his father, Nimrod. Thus was created the doctrine of the trinity of God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit. This new religion replaced the empire of Nimrod that included the Middle East all the way to the Straits of Gibraltar. Then this Trinitarian religion crept into almost all the religions of Mediterranean Europe and Asia, including Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity.

The "many waters" symbolize the many nations, peoples, and tongues, in which Trinitarianism is established.

Verse 2: "'with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the dwellers on earth have become drunk.'"

"the kings of the earth" are the rulers of the various countries.

These rulers "have committed fornication" with the harlot in that they have succumbed to, tolerated, and even supported the corruptness of this religion. Some have even adopted her trinitarianism as their state religion.

"the wine" is the false explanations and interpretations of this church, that was foisted on the people against their will. These explanations and interpretations have made people confused and caused them to lose their ability to reason. This is what is meant by: "the dwellers on earth have become drunk". This also applies to the Baha'i faith, by the arch Covenant-breakers foisting on the flock their headless monster House of Justice, that isn't a House of Justice at all, as it was not elected by all nations, as there were no Baha'is in the Communist Soviet Union, and doesn't have the Executive Branch, as its head, and preventing them from contacting those that are under the provisions of the Covenant, by labeling them Covenant-breakers—and therefore should be shunned—making their followers drunk with their bad wine. That is, they no longer possess reason.

Verse 3: "And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns."

"a wilderness" symbolizes the wildness in concepts and confusion of religious beliefs in our present civilization. It is called a wilderness because it is meaningless, and in violation of the true spiritual Law of God, the Covenant; and it is speeding pell-mell into destruction.

"a woman" again refers to the Catholic church.

The "scarlet beast" is the four world powers. The scarlet symbolizes the sins of the beast in that red is a color associated with a harlot or a whore (the scarlet woman). In the Old Testament, corrupted religions were referred to as whores.

"blasphemous names" represent the apostate religions, sects and denominations that masquerade as Christian, such as Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, Episcopalian etc. In 1 Corinthians 1:12, 13 it says: "What I mean is that each one of you says, 'I belong to Paul,' or 'I belong to Apollos,' or 'I belong to Cephas,' or 'I belong to Christ.' Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?" (1 Corinthians 1:12, 13). "For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not flesh, and behaving like ordinary men? For when one says, 'I belong to Paul' and another, 'I belong to Apollos,' are you not merely men? Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed" (1 Cor. 3:3-4, 5 KJV). What Paul is saying here is when one says they are Baptist or Lutheran, or some other denomination, that they are no longer Christians, but some other religion, that is, they are Baptist, Methodist, or some other man made religion.

When the Baha'is went against Shoghi Effendi and threw out the Executive Branch that Shoghi Effendi placed at the head of embryonic Universal House of Justice (IBC), they were no longer Baha'is but some other religion masquerading as Baha'is. They were removed from the Baha'i faith, as Covenant-breakers, in the first epistle of the second Guardian.

Verse 4: "The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication";

"purple" is the color of the royal robe (secular government) which the Pope donned in 731 AD when Gregory III declared the Holy Roman Empire to be separate from what was then the Roman Empire and attained temporal power over the city of Rome and a part of Italy.

"scarlet" is the color of the Cardinals that elect the Papacy.

"gold and jewels and pearls" symbolize temporal wealth. The Catholic church has enormous wealth. It is probably the biggest business in the world. When my wife visited the Vatican her guide took her into a very large room that was laden with these jewels. He told her that there was more wealth in this room than all the wealth in any country and a half of Europe.

The "abominations and the impurities of her fornication" include the idolatry, icons, or idols (statues or pictures) found in the churches, and homes, of the so-called "Christians" that people pray to, which is forbidden in the second commandment; and rituals, dogmas, and observances for which the followers of this religion pay money to bow down to and worship. Idolatry is the biggest abomination of the church, and the Trinitarian doctrine and incarnate god Lie are the primary impurities.

Verse 5: "and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: 'Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth's abominations.'"

"mystery" of the trinity refers to the trinity created by Semiramis, explained as a mystery, which is the birthplace of the harlot that moved to Pergamum, then to Rome and was incorporated into Christianity by Pope Damasus. It is called a mystery because of the incarnation of three gods in one: God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit. The mystery is in how the incarnation is possible. It isn't a mystery; it is a Pagan concept that crept into Christianity. There are not three gods. There is only one true invisible God. This is the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all of Israel. Rome is likened to "Babylon the great" which is known as that wicked and tempestuous city of old. Therefore, Rome is the second Babylon.

When I attended a Cathedral where the Anglican Bishop had for his sermon "The Trinity", I attended this service to see what the Anglican concept of the trinity was, and how they explained it. The Bishop started his sermon with saying the trinity is a mystery and we can't explain it. Then he spent the next 45 minutes talking about it, which proved his point that he didn't know what he was talking about. It's a mystery, how there could be three gods in one god, (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit) making Jesus God incarnate because there are not three gods in one God. There is just one true invisible God that has no peers. Jesus never claimed to be the Father, but the Son, and this referred to the potency of his Revelation in contrast to that of the other Manifestations such as Moses, or the friend of God, Abraham.

Jesus emphatically claimed to reveal God, Whom He called the Father, but continually differentiated himself from the Father. In many such references as "Him that sent me,"[1] "my Father is greater than I,"[2] "I go to the Father,"[3] "I will pray the Father,"[4] "I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me."[5] He referred to himself as a prophet.[6] That one would come after him "he, the spirit of truth," who would reveal the things which Jesus did not: "I have many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth."[7] Then he tells us who this person is: "For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man [a man] also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of the Father [Baha'u'llah]."[8]

"harlots" here symbolize the many denominations or religious sects of Christianity which exist in the world. The Catholic church is called "mother of harlots" because she is the beginning of trinitarianism and the Incarnate god Lie into Christianity. This started in the days of the Apostles and has continued on down to today. As the Protestants (protesting against the Papacy) broke away from the Catholic church, they became daughter harlots, because they retained the Trinitarian doctrine and incarnate god Lie, which the church had assimilated. Those that broke away from the daughter harlots became granddaughter harlots, and those that broke away from them became great granddaughter, etc. In other words, they are all harlots.

"earth's abominations" are the false doctrines and interpretations that the Catholic church has and invented, which has resulted in our corrupt civilization. Trinitarianism started to enter into Christianity in the days of Paul. As the Trinitarian Pagans converted into Christianity they brought their trinity with them. The trinity became Roman law with Constantine and his Council of Nicaea in 325 AD.

Verse 6: "And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. When I saw her I marveled greatly."

"the saints" and "martyrs of Jesus" are those persons who the Papacy caused to be killed from the time of Council of Nicaea on; especially those killed by Charlemagne and during the inquisition. These people did not go along with the abominations and the impurities, which the church invented and assimilated.

Verse 7: "But the angel said to me, 'Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her.'"

The "beast with the seven heads" is the United Nations that is composed of all nations of the world. These various nations each having one or another of the seven different alive revealed religions: Jewish, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Buddhists, Christians, Muslims and Baha'i. The "ten horns" are the ten nations that the Ottoman, or Turkish, Empire ruled over. Turkey ceased to rule over these nations when it was defeated as an ally of Germany in World War One. These ten nations then joined the League of Nations in 1921, and became the ten horns of the United Nations, or the beast.

Verse 8: "'The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to perdition; and the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will marvel to behold the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.'"

"was" means that this beast existed in John's vision.

"is not" means that it is not a reality in the world at the time John is receiving his vision.

"is to ascend" means that this beast will come into existence at a later time.

"the bottomless pit" is the pit of error or the waywardness of the world. It is symbolized at the end of the descending passageway in the great Pyramid as the bottomless pit.

"go to perdition" means that the beast will eventually be completely and utterly destroyed, in the oncoming thermonuclear war.

"the foundation of the world" is the true Revelation of God. It is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah revealed in the last century. This foundation of the world is not the apostate Baha'i faith corrupted by the Covenant-breaking Ruhiyyih Khanum and the "Hands" who threw out the Executive Branch (W&T, p. 15). But this foundation of the world is alive in the world in the "Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant," that was reestablished as the second International Baha'i Council by the promised return of Jesus the Lamb.

"the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life" of the Lamb are those people who do not recognize and accept this Revelation as explained by the Lamb, who is alive and in the world today.[9] By not being written in the Lamb's book of life they go blindly into the fire of the thermonuclear war that is about to take place.

Verse 9: "'This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads are seven hills on which the woman is seated;'"

"seven hills" symbolize Rome which is surrounded by seven hills.

"the woman" is the Catholic church or mother church (mother harlot) which is the seat of the Trinitarian religion.

Verse 10: "'they are also seven kings five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come, and when he comes he must remain only a little while.'"

The "seven kings" are those individuals or dynasties that have caused the corruption of each of God's Religions.

The "five have fallen." These are the founders of the dynasties of the Jewish, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Muslim. Like the Bani-Umayyed that corrupted Islam at the passing of Muhammad, those that had corrupted these religions are no longer in existence.

The "one is" refers to the Papacy that corrupted Christianity which began in the days of the apostles and continues to exist until it is destroyed in the fire with the beast. The Catholics claim that the Papacy was the successor to Peter who had gone to Rome. This is supposed to give the Papacy of Rome its authority.

The king, or dynasty who "has not yet come" refers to the "Hands" faith, which is the apostate Baha'i faith. By doing away with the Executive Branch of the administration in the Baha'i faith, and opposing the continuation of the Davidic Kingship, at the head of the Universal House of Justice, that Shoghi Effendi had placed as the president of his embryonic Universal House of Justice, these apostate Baha'is have violated Baha'u'llah's Covenant and thus corrupted God's Revelation to mankind for this day.

Baha'u'llah, a descendant of King David, continued the Davidic (lineage) Kingship in the world, by appointing His son, 'Abdu'l-Baha, to be His successor when He died (see Rev. chapter 4 verse 2). 'Abdu'l-Baha continued this Davidic lineage by adopting Mason Remey to be his son. Shoghi Effendi continued this lineage by appointing 'Abdu'l-Baha's son, Mason Remey, to be the head of the first International Baha'i Council. This Council is Shoghi Effendi's son, and his successor that is to go through 4 stages and effloresce into the Universal House of Justice. These "Hands" that were the Hands of Shoghi Effendi—and were to cease to exist as Hands with the passing of Shoghi Effendi—took over the administration at his passing and offensively went against Shoghi Effendi and threw out his four stage plan for a plan of their own. In this corrupt plan (scheme) they set up a headless monster (without the executive head) which they called the Universal House of Justice, in the place of Baha'u'llah's Universal House of Justice. It is to this headless monster that the Covenant-breakers adhere, or cling to today, making themselves the laughing stock of this century. No one in his right mind would go for these shenanigans. Only simpletons and fools that don't use their intellect that God gave them, and the principle of "Independent Investigation of the Truth" that Baha'u'llah gave them; they don't seek the truth for themselves and thus go into perdition.

Verse 11: "'As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to perdition.'"

The eighth beast is a religious irreligion. It replaces the Religion of God. It is a political union. It lacks the spiritual, therefore it is a beast. It has created a civilization that separates church (religion) from statehood. The United States pioneered this religion. Now, following the United States, most of the countries on earth are of this new religion, that is secular, this includes the four world powers: the United States, England, France and Russia. These four beast countries sit on the Security Council of the United Nations, having along with China the veto power. Therefore this beast controls the entire world, "and it goes to perdition" meaning that it goes into total destruction.

Verse 12: "'And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast.'"

"the ten horns" represent the ten Arab, or Islamic nations, that were part of the dragon, the Ottoman, or Turkish, Empire, that came to an end in 1921. When Russia attacks Israel in its move to stabilize the mid-east, these ten nations will join in for one hour and support this attack. These nations imagine the end result to be the re-establishment of Islamic rule over all the other nations of the world.

Verse 13: "'These are of one mind and give over their power and authority to the beast;'"

"their power" is their oil.

"their authority" to be a viable religion is that they are Muslims, receiving their authority from God through Muhammad, who was prophesied to come in both the Old and New Testament.

Verse 14: "'they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of Lords and King of Kings and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.'"

"for he is Lord of Lord and King of Kings"[10] is an interpolation. Bible scholars tell us that this phrase in this chapter was not found in the original text. All the nations of the world, including Islam, will oppose the Lamb. But when his explanations and commentaries are heard he will be accepted, as he is the establisher of God's Cause that Baha'u'llah brought. Thus he will conquer those who come against him. His followers, those who recognize and accept his explanations, "are called and chosen and faithful." That is they are chosen by God, and are faithful to the Covenant of Baha'u'llah and the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha.

Verse 15: "And he said to me, 'the waters that you saw, where the harlot is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.'"

The "harlot" is the corrupted Christian religion that is found in every country and is translated into all the languages (tongues) of the world. "the waters" are the people that are corrupted by the false interpretations and theologies invented by the Christian clergy. This harlot also applies to the corrupted Baha'i faith that was corrupted by the Arch Covenant-breakers, and is established in all nations, peoples, and tongues.

Verse 16: "'And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.'" (KJV)

The "ten horns" are the ten countries that the Turkish Empire ruled over. In 1921, with the collapse of this Ottoman Empire, these ten (horns) countries joined the United Nations which is the beast. Thus these ten Islamic countries placed these horns on the beast. These ten horns (Islamic Countries) hate the Harlot, which is the Trinitarian Christian religion. Muhammad exposed the Trinity as a corruption of Christianity. Muhammad said: "why say three, there is but one God."

Verse 17: "'for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and giving over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.'"

These people know from the writings of Muhammad that the incarnate God, or Trinitarian doctrine, is a lie; and they hate the Catholic church for incorporating this Pagan doctrine of Semiramis into Christianity. By joining with Russia and causing a nuclear war, they know they can bring about the destruction of this harlot. They aim to get the Christians into a war destroying each other, then they would then be able to make Islam the world power, but the Lamb will conquer them with his explanations and commentaries.

Verse 18: "'And the woman that you saw is the great city which has dominion over the kings of the earth.'"

The Catholic church—"the woman"—and Rome—the great city—reigns over the "kings of the earth" through the influence of the Trinitarian doctrine and the Papacy.
