Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)

Verse 1: "To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: 'The words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands.'

Verse 2: "'I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear evil men but have tested those who call themselves apostles but are not, and found them to be false;

Verse 3: "I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary.

Verse 4: "But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.

Verse 5: "Remember then from what you have fallen, repent and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.'"

THIS refers to the Christian and the Baha'i faith. The word "apostles" refers to religious leaders. In the Christian faith it refers to the clergy, of all denominations. In the Baha'i faith it refers to the "Hands" and its bogus so-called Universal House of Justice. They are bearing up for His name's sake, meaning they are Baha'is in name only; and they "have not grown weary" in their endeavor to establish their corrupted form of the administration: doing away with the Executive Branch; and without the Executive Branch they cannot have Justice (W&T, p. 15). If they don't repent they will loose everything. They have left the love that they had at first, the love of the provisions of the Covenant (Will and Testament). They have created a theology around their violation to justify it.

Verse 6: "Yet this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate."

These Covenant-breakers hate the work of the Nicolaitans, although they are the Nicolaitans. In every age there are groups of people who rise in active opposition to the Covenant of the Revelator, who are symbolically like the Nicolaitans and who obstruct the progress His Cause.

Verse 7: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God."

To the Christian it is to go by the Kabbalah tree given by Abraham, as found in chapter 10 in Part One of this book. To the Baha'i, 'Abdu'l-Baha has stated that the Tree of Life is the Covenant. The Covenant-breakers eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life, which is the 12 basic principles of the Baha'i faith, but to receive eternal life they must eat of the Tree itself, that is, the Covenant. Unless they abide by the Covenant, that is, all of its provisions, they will surely die. This is eternal death, that is, it is everlasting.

Verse 8: "And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: 'The words of the first and the last, who died and came to life."

This refers to Jesus on his first and second coming. As Jesus gave this revelation he has returned a second time at the end of this century to give these explanations, or interpretations. His authority is through the Greater Covenant, that is, he has come in the prophesied Name, Address, Date, and Mission. See Part One for fuller proofs. He reestablishes the International Baha'i Council, that Shoghi Effendi had set up as the embryonic Universal House of Justice, that was his son and was to be his successor, and that the Covenant-breaking "Hands" by-passed to set up their headless monster.

Verse 9: "'I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan."

This refers to the Baha'is who remained true to the Covenant accepting the son of Shoghi Effendi, the first International Baha'i Council with 'Abdu'l-Baha's adopted [1] son, Charles Mason Remey, as its president, as the continuation of the guardianship. Baha'u'llah was Jewish, being a descendant of King David, who was of the tribe of Judah (Jewish), making the guardianship Jewish. Mason Remey, a gentile, was, by adoption, grafted into the tribe of Judah. Many claimed to be the continuation of the guardianship succeeding Mason Remey, but were not grafted in, and therefore are those who are the synagogue of Satan. Thus also Rex King, who came to the Guardian, Mason Remey, trying to force him to make him his successor, was designated "Satan" by the Guardian, Mason Remey.

Verse 10: "Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life."

This applies to both the Christian and Baha'i faith. The ten days for Christianity are the ten centuries, or the thousand years, that the Pope took the Bible away from the Christians and gave the corrupt catechism in its place. The ten days, applied to the Baha'i faith, is from 1959, when the "Hands" dismantled the first International Baha'i Council and set up something else, until ten years later in 1969, when Dr. Leland was incarcerated having the "stone [wall] with seven eyes [watch towers]" before him after being visited by an angel, at which time he became cognizant that he was the return of Jesus fulfilling the prophecies in Zechariah chapter 3. Dr. Leland is being faithful and is carrying out all the things that have been put before him. More likely this has not been fulfilled yet. This could take place right after Saddam Hussein of Iraq is assassinated by the United Nations (the beast), underwritten by the United States, which is already in the making with the code name: "Jackhammer." Then the Iraqis, according to the prophecies of Nostradamus,[2] will destroy the United Nations building and the city of New York along with it. "Ten days" later this will start World War III, with the United States retaliating by nuking Iraq. This war will be fought between Christian nations, with the white race being decimated, nine-tenths being killed.

Verse 11: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who conquers shall not be hurt by the second death."

Whoever arises to sally forth on their trusted steeds to conquer the evil and help to establish the Kingdom will not be hurt by the second death. The first death is the death of the spirit, so those that are alive in spirit will not be hurt with the death of the physical body.

Verse 12: "And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: 'The words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword.

Verse 13: "'I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; you hold fast my name and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells."

Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, who reestablished Nimrod's Empire, was the head of the Trinitarian religion that was invented and established by Nimrod's wife Semiramis. Nimrod's Empire consisted of the Middle East and then extended all the way to the straights of Gibraltar. Nimrod claimed that his star was Saturn, giving us the name of Satan. He was executed for heresy and his body cut up into chunks, and a chunk was sent to each nation of his empire. When his wife Semiramis received a chunk of her husband's body she became furious, and vowed to get even. She became pregnant and claimed that her womb was the habitation of the Holy Spirit, and that the fetus inside her womb was the reincarnation of Nimrod. When it was born into the world, being Semiramis' son, he was Bar-nin the son of Nimrod, and the incarnation of his father, Nimrod. Thus, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This trinity doctrine crept into other religions—The Jewish, the Hindu, the Buddhist and Christianity.

Cyrus the Great, a Zoroastrian believing in the One True Invisible God, not only had the Jews go back to the site of the destroyed city of Jerusalem, that Nebuchadnezzar had destroyed—and allowed the Jews to rebuild their temple—but he expelled from his empire, that he had just acquired, the Pagan religion of the trinity to Pergamum. Thus this religion crept into Christianity, and at the Council of Nicea it was voted in as the official religion of the Roman Empire, in 325 AD. Constantine made an edict that this Trinitarian religion was the official religion of the Roman Empire and that every one must accept this or be put to death. However most of the true Christians left Rome and went to the northern part of Europe and multiplied. Later, in the Eighth Century, Charlemagne went up to the Saxons with an extremely large army and forced all these people, after he lopped off a million of their heads, to accept this Pagan Trinitarian doctrine.

Verse 14: "But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice immorality."

The food sacrificed to idols was that Christianity was becoming infected with Pagan concepts. A common doctrine to all Christianity today is that Jesus' sacrifice of His physical flesh on the cross gives us forgiveness of sins. This goes along with the concept that God is vengeful and wrathful and demands payment from sinners for their sinning. The payment is death. Christians think Jesus made the payment for their sins with His own death.

In order to receive the blessing of this they must eat His flesh and drink His blood, as it seems to say in the 6th chapter of the Gospel of John. This is called the Eucharist or communion.

These ideas come from paganism, not the Bible. The Pagans would offer food from their crops to the gods of those crops. They would then eat the sacramental food with the understanding that it was the body of that god, and they would receive a supernatural blessing from this. They would eat the food that had been "sacrificed" to their idol.

Paul explains that it isn't the food that will harm them but their belief that it is the body of the god, that is, their idolatry, which can harm them.

1 Corinthians 8 verse 1: "Now concerning food offered to idols: we know that 'all of us possess knowledge.' 'Knowledge' puffs up, but love builds up.

1 Cor. 8 verse 2: "If any one imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know.

1 Cor. 8 verse 3: "But if one loves God, one is known by him.

1 Cor. 8 verse 4: "Hence, as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that 'an idol has no real existence,' and that 'there is no God but one.'

1 Cor. 8 verse 5: "For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth—as indeed there are many 'gods' and many 'lords'—-

1 Cor. 8 verse 6: "yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.

1 Cor. 8 verse 7: "However, not all possess this knowledge. But some, through being hitherto accustomed to idols, eat food as really offered to an idol; and their conscience, being weak, is defiled.

1 Cor. 8 verse 8: "Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do."

1 Corinthians 10 verse 19: "What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything?

1 Cor. 10 verse 20: "No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons.

1 Cor. 10 verse 21: "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons."

The Christians, who had recently been practicing pagans, were making the mistake of thinking the flesh and blood of Jesus, that is the bread and the wine, were for real and not just symbols. They thought Jesus was God incarnate, that he sacrificed the food of Himself instead of them sacrificing it, and now all that's left for them to do is eat it and they will receive the supernatural blessing of being saved, that is, having their sins forgiven so now they don't have to die. They eat Him when they take communion.

This Trinitarian religion of Pergamum in the world today is Christians, who hold fast to the name of "Christ," but when they take the Eucharist they are eating the body of Jesus and drinking his blood and thus have Christ in them, rather than eating the bread, which was a symbol of his teachings, and the wine, which was a symbol of his Covenant. This practice of the Christians is similar to the Pagans eating the food sacrificed to idols. This practice was taught to the Christians by Balamite and Nicolaitan teachers.

Revelation 2 verse 15: So you also have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

Verse 16: "Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth."

Thus Jesus has come a second time and he is warning against the Pagan Christians with the sword of his mouth. These explanations are the explanations of Jesus on his second coming.

Verse 17: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone which no one knows except him who receives it."

To those Christians "who conquers" (overcomes their pagan indoctrination), the promised return of Jesus gives the hidden manna, which are these explanations, and they are not found in any of the Christians' or Baha'i writings. Therefore it is called the hidden manna. The tribes of Israel ate the manna that came down from the sky when Moses took them out into the desert in the exodus.

The white stone with a new name written on it is the greatest Name of God. The name of God, given by Moses that was given to the high priest, was YHVH. God is not the name of God. God is what He is. Only the high priest was given the vowels. This was kept from the Israelites, because to take God's name in vain is forbidden:

The fourth commandment: "You shall not take the name of God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain." (Exodus 20:7)

The high priest would go into the Holy of Holies once a year and he would whisper the name of God for the remission of the sins of the people of Israel. Jesus did not give the Christians the name of God, that is, because he called Him Father. But those that become Baha'i are given the new name of God. It was originally written on a white stone, but copies are now written on paper—but in either Arabic or Persian letter—and is so arranged, like a logo-graph, as to make it difficult to read. Each person who becomes a Baha'i is given the pronunciation of that name. When one prays to God and calls Him by His Name He hears their prayers.

Verse 18: "And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: 'The words of the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and whose feet are like burnished bronze."

This refers to Jesus on his second coming, and these explanations are his explanations.

Verse 19: "'I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first."

The latter works of the Christians is that in this day—with the modern technology of transportation and communication—Christianity has spread rapidly and extensively around the world. The same thing applies to the Baha'i faith.

Verse 20: "But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and beguiling my servants to practice immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols."

In the Christian faith is the doctrine of the trinity that was created by Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod, which corrupted Christianity. All of the idols of paganism entered into Christianity under new names. Paganism conquered Christianity rather than Christianity conquering paganism. In the Baha'i faith, Jezebel is Ruhiyyih Khanum. The food is the teachings of Baha'u'llah that is sacrificed to the idols of imaginations. She has them sacrificing the provisions of the Will and Testament of the Executive Branch of the House of Justice, doing away with it completely, having her followers to eat the food of a headless monster, a House of Justice without its head, (the Executive Branch), created by her to replace the food given by 'Abdu'l-Baha in the Will and Testament. The practice of immorality is Covenant-breaking of the worst kind, condemning the "mainstream Baha'is" to both physical and spiritual death.

Verse 21: "I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her immorality."

God has given Ruhiyyih Khanum the time from the passing of Shoghi Effendi in 1957 to the present, but she refuses to do so.

Verse 22: "Behold, I will throw her on a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her doings;"

Those that follow the immorality of Covenant-breaking of Ruhiyyih Khanum are on a sickbed of the worst kind of all diseases, spiritual leprosy. This will strike her children (followers) dead, both physically and spiritually; physically in the oncoming great catastrophe.

Verse 23: "and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches shall know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you as your works deserve."

You Covenant-breakers following Ruhiyyih Khanum ("mainstream Baha'is"), God knows what is in your mind and heart, unless you repent, you will get what you deserve.

Verse 24: "But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay upon you any other burden;"

This refers to the Christians that are unaware of the deep things of Satan. Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" are much more stubborn and worse than Christians. Unlike the Christians they are loyal to the Arch Covenant-breakers, refusing to investigate the matter for themselves. They do this thinking that they will get brownie points moving them up in the administration.

Verse 25: "only hold fast what you have, until I come."

The Christians should hold fast until the message of the return of Jesus comes to them, avoiding being converted to the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is," which is sure death.

Verse 26: "He who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, I will give him power over the nations,"

These are those that come under the true Baha'i faith, reestablished by the return of Jesus. These are those that conquer who will be a part of the true administration that Shoghi Effendi set up, and of which the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" threw out. They will be part of, or the mentors of, setting up the World Order of Baha'u'llah.

Verse 27: "and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received power from my Father;"

This refers to Jesus on his second coming, who is reestablishing the true Baha'i faith that was broken by the Covenant-breakers. He receives power from the Father, Baha'u'llah, by reestablishing the administration of Baha'u'llah.

Verse 28: "and I will give him the morning star."

The morning star is the establishing of Baha'u'llah's World Order in the world, that all the people of the world will come under.

Verse 29: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."

This means that the people should lend their ear to hear what the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Revelation of Jesus are, for their own security, safety and salvation.
