Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)

Verse 1: "After this I heard what seemed to be the mighty voice of a great multitude, crying, 'Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God,'

Verse 2: "'for his judgments are true and just; he has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and he has avenged on her the blood of his saints.'

Verse 3: "Once more they cried, 'Hallelujah! The smoke from her goes up for ever and ever.'"

BY the time the destruction of Rome and its trinitarianism is complete, all of mankind will realize Rome's true state of corruptness and ungodliness. Then they will praise God for destroying her and know that His Judgment is just.

"the smoke from her goes up for ever and ever" again symbolizes that this city is never to be rebuilt or re-established.

Verse 4: "And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying, 'Amen. Hallelujah!'"

As explained before, "the twenty-four elders" are the twenty-four Apostles of the Lamb, who are now seated in the second International Baha'i Council, which will go through three more stages to become the Universal House of Justice. "the four living creatures" are the four world powers who once were described as beasts because they were void of Spirit. After the whore is destroyed, these four world powers will become spiritual by recognizing the true Revelation of God through the Lamb's explanations. That is why they are then seen as "living" creatures, as they take on the Spirit of Baha.

"God who is seated on the throne" is represented by the Guardians who are the descendants of Baha'u'llah, who is a descendant of King David seated on the throne of David. All who are believers in the Revelation of Baha'u'llah—they will understand through the Lamb's explanations that the Guardian is the sign of God on earth. Therefore, they will worship God.

Verse 5: "And from the throne came a voice crying, 'Praise our God, all you his servants, you who fear him, small and great.'"

The Guardian in turn will forever be devoted and steadfast in his service to God and will call all mankind to the service of God.

Verse 6: "Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunder peals, crying, 'Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns.'"

"the voice of a great multitude" symbolizes all of mankind who are still living after the four winds of destruction are complete, for at that time everyone will be Baha'is.

Verse 7: "'Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory [Baha], for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready;'

Verse 8: "'it was granted her to be clothed with fine linen, bright and pure'—for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints."

"the marriage of the Lamb" is the mass conversion of mankind to the Revelation of Baha'u'llah through the Lamb's explanations and commentaries.

"his Bride" symbolizes the pure Revelation of Baha'u'llah, or Law of God.

Verse 9: "And the angel said to me, 'Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.' And he said to me, 'These are true words of God.'"

"those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb" are the believers in God and His Prophets who assist the Lamb in establishing God's Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. The Lamb is not found among the Covenant-breakers, for they are for the fire. They keep their followers ignorant. This group accuses the true Baha'is, who are obedient to and faithful to the Covenant, of being the Covenant-breakers and thus have created a great wall of oppression which keeps the pure-hearted and sincere seekers among them from investigating the truth of the Covenant. They are a stubborn people. They however are guilty because they don't use the intellect that God gave them or the principle of the "Independent Investigation of the Truth" that Baha'u'llah gave them to know the truth, thus they will go into the fire in their sins.

Verse 10: "Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, 'You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!' For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."

The return of Jesus is not a Manifestation of God and the people are not to bow down to him or worship him. The whore, who is the Trinitarian religion, portrays Jesus as God instead of a prophet or Manifestation of God. In this verse, it is made clear that Jesus is but the "spirit of prophecy" and that everyone should worship only God.

Verse 11: "Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war."

"heaven opened" means that what was in the annals of God of what was to come in the future was made known to John in a vision of a man on a white horse.

"a white horse" A horse symbolizes strength; and white symbolizes the pure religion of God. "He who sat upon it" is Jesus the Lamb. Shoghi Effendi knighted Dr. Leland Jensen, along with his wife Dr. Opal Jensen, as Knights of Baha'u'llah.

"He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war". He makes war against the five million Covenant-breaking "Baha'is," that did away with the Executive Branch of the Universal House of Justice. Without the Executive Branch there could be no Justice (W&T, p. 15) and without Justice there could be no Universal House of Justice. He also makes war against the Christian clergy that has destroyed the Christianity of Jesus and the Apostles with the trinity and the Incarnate god LIE, leaving nothing but the dead carcass, which is Christian in name only. This dead carcass is not only dead but it stinks to high heaven, and it is time that it is buried and put into a grave, which will happen in the oncoming thermonuclear war. Also the dead carcass of the Covenant-breakers UHJ that is a dead monster that is without a head also stinks to high heaven, and will be buried and put into a grave with the oncoming thermonuclear war.

Verse 12: "His eyes are like a flame of fire and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself."

The one that has "eyes like a flame of fire" is the return of Jesus the Son of God:—"The words of the son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze" (Rev. 2:18). "eyes like a flame of fire" means that he is a flame of fire to the malefactors and miscreants in both Christianity and the Baha'i faith. He exposes these evildoers to the people of the world.

"many diadems" are the many titles which the Lamb is referred to in the various verses of the Holy Text, i.e., The Lamb, Seventh Angel, Joshua, Jesus, the Establisher, Blessed is he, The Land, the High Priest, etc.

The name which "no one knows but himself" is the name of the return of Jesus the Lamb as "Leland"—"the land", as prophesied in Zechariah 3:9. Nobody knew that "the land" is Leland. "Le" is the French word for the English word "the". Leland is a French surname and an English given name. It means the land.

Verse 13: "He is clad in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God."

A robe dipped in blood, or a robe spotted with blood, is the robe of the high priest who sacrificed animals. Jesus has returned as the High Priest after the Order of Melchizedec.[1] The robe dipped in blood also is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah ushered in with the blood of 20,000 martyrs. Baha'u'llah, in various verses of His Writings, refers to His Revelation as a robe. "A robe that cannot be outworn." etc. (See the Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah and various prayers). 'Abdu'l-Baha referred to Jesus as "the word," so the return of Jesus is "The Word of God."

The mission of the Lamb ("The Word of God"), is to establish in the world the Revelation of Baha'u'llah and His Covenant, mainly the Davidic Kingship which is the head of the TRUE Universal House of Justice. That is, the UHJ must have both the Executive Branch and the legislative body (Will and Testament, p. 15).

Verse 14: "And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses."

Those that follow the Knight on the white horse become knights also. 'Abdu'l-Baha said that the Knights of the Lord would have the victory. "He in His parting message to the cousin of the Bab, uttered these prophetic and ominous words:"

"How great, how very great is the Cause! How very fierce the onslaught of all the peoples and kindreds of the earth, Ere long shall the clamor of the multitude throughout Africa, throughout America, the cry of the European and of the Turk, the groaning of India and China, be heard from far and near. One and all, they shall arise with all their power to resist His Cause. Then shall the knights of the Lord, assisted by His grace from on high, strengthened by faith, aided by the power of understanding, and reinforced by the legions of the Covenant, arise and make manifest the truth of the verse: 'Behold the confusion that hath befallen the tribes of the defeated!" ('Abdu'l-Baha, "The Onslaught of All Peoples and Kindreds," p. 17, from THE WORLD ORDER OF BAHA'U'LLAH, by Shoghi Effendi)

Shoghi Effendi said: "Stupendous as is the struggle which His words foreshadow, they also testify to the complete victory which the upholders of the Greatest Name are destined eventually to achieve." (ibid.)

"the armies of heaven" are the 144,000 people who will accept the Revelation of Baha'u'llah through the Lamb's explanations after New York City is destroyed by a nuclear bomb, and before the first wind of destruction is let loose, which is the nuclear war, or World War III.

"fine linen, white and pure" symbolizes the aura—spiritual bodies—of these people. They are white and pure showing that they have acquired God-like attributes and qualities.

Verse 15: "From his mouth issues a sharp sword with which to smite the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron; he will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty."

"a sharp sword" is the explanations of Jesus the Lamb that issues from his mouth like a two-edged sword that cuts with either edge. The explanations of the Lamb separates the good from the bad (the sheep from the goats). With his explanations, the anti-christ,[2] the Christians, and the beast nations that they created, as well as the Covenant-breakers ("mainstream Baha'is"), are exposed; and then they either return to the true Baha'i administration or will be destroyed, along with their Covenant-breaking followers; whereas the righteous will enter the Kingdom. The "wine press" is the bombing of New York City. The tall skyscrapers will collapse and compress the people inside these buildings as a wine press compresses grapes.

Verse 16: "On his robe and on his thigh he has a name inscribed, King of kings and Lord of lords."

The garment that the Lamb wears is the Revelation—robe—of Baha'u'llah. Like a knight on his horse when he goes into battle carries a banner or the name of the king he is serving written on his chaps, thighs, and robe, the Lamb carries the name of Baha'u'llah, who is the King of kings and Lord of lords, on his robe and on his chaps, symbolically as he goes forth into battle to establish His Cause and His Kingdom on earth. Baha'u'llah was born a great prince and his father sat upon the throne of King David, that Baha'u'llah inherited and sits upon. Baha'u'llah, in His proclamation on page 89, stated that "He ruleth upon the throne of David."

Verse 17: "Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, 'Come, gather for the great supper of God,'"

"the sun" symbolizes the Manifestation of God, Baha'u'llah. The loud voice is that he is heard throughout the world on radio, TV, newspapers, news magazines, etc. This angel is standing firm in the Covenant of Baha'u'llah. The "birds that fly in mid-heaven" are the jet-planes and missiles with nuclear warheads. "mid-heaven" is the sky between the earth and outer space. It also means the formative age which is in-between the apostolic age, that of the martyrs, and that of the established Kingdom. The supper of God is the battle of Armageddon. "...they are demonic spirits, performing great signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle on the great day of God the almighty."[3] This is the supper of God.

Verse 18: "'to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.'"

The missiles will fly over the North Pole and bomb the big cities of 100,000 or more, as well as military sites in the United States, which is now the leading world power, and will be hit the hardest. The missiles from the United States will fly over the North Pole and drop their bombs on Russia, Iraq and Iran. Iran has the largest Covenant-breaking "Baha'i" population in the world, and is dubbed by Bill on the Hill as a terrorist Nation. Most of the Countries of Europe will be hit hard, especially Britain and France, as they are also world powers and are allies of the United States.

Verse 19: "And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army."

All those who are not true believers (Covenant-breakers) of Baha'u'llah's Covenant and the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, along with the Kings of the earth, will oppose the Lamb, the Knight of Baha'u'llah seated on the white horse, and his followers.

This Knight that is seated on the white horse in this chapter is the same Knight of Baha'u'llah in chapter 6, that has the Covenant (bow) of Baha'u'llah in his hand that "went out conquering and to conquer."

Verse 20: "And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who had worshipped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone."

"the beast" is the United Nations, with the four world powers: England, France, Russia and the United States, along with China, having the veto power on the security Council, that makes all the decisions concerning war and peace. It is called the beast because it is not spiritual, it is only secular. Therefore this beast is leading the entire world pell-mell, smack-dab into hell and destruction.

The "false prophet" is the Papacy that has led the Christian world astray with its false interpretations, dogmas and rituals, such as the resurrection of Jesus physical body rather than Jesus' body of believers: "…for the church [congregation] which is his body." (Ephesians 1:22, 23). It was this body that resurrected, that is, became believers again. But the "Christians" today believe that Jesus ascended up into the sky, instead of into heaven. Thus the Christians are looking for him to come out of the sky instead of heaven—of prophecy—as he came the first time out of the heaven of prophecy. Jesus said: "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven" (John 3:13 KJV). Jesus said he was in heaven when he was on earth, so heaven is not a place but a condition.

"those who had received the mark of the beast" are Muslims.

"those who worship its image"—crucifix—are the Christians.

"the lake of fire" is the nuclear war.

Verse 21: "And the rest were slain by the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that issues from his mouth; and all the birds were gorged with their flesh."

"the rest" are those people who survive the destruction of the nuclear war and are slain by the sword that issues from his mouth, which are his explanations and commentaries.

"slain by the sword" means The Flaming Sword: "he placed the cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life" (Genesis 3:24). 'Abdu'l-Baha said that the Tree of Life is the Covenant. They that become firm in the Covenant through the Knight of Baha'u'llah's explanations, that are issued from his mouth, enter into the Kingdom. The sword is a two-edge sword that cuts both ways. Those that go against the words (the sword) that issues from his mouth (of him who is seated on the horse) then all the "birds will be gorged with their flesh." The birds are the missiles with the nuclear warhead.



See Hebrews chapters 9 and 10. [back]

2 The anti-christ are the Christians that reject Jesus' genealogy back to King David, making God Jesus' physical father. The physical father of Jesus is Joseph (Luke 3:23-31 and Romans 1:3). [back]
