Revised Standard Version
(Unless Otherwise Indicated)

Verse 1: "After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree."

ALI was 5th angel who was the establisher of the revelation of Muhammad. Quddus, the 6th angel, was the establisher of the revelation of the Bab. Leland (the land, Zech. 3:9) is the 7th angel who is the establisher of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah. The four angels are those that came before Muhammad. That makes Paul, who was the establisher of the revelation of Jesus the Christ, the 4th angel; Joshua, the establisher of the revelation of Moses, the 3rd angel; Shem, who was the establisher of the laws of Noah, the 2nd angel; and Enoch, who was the establisher of Adam's revelation, the 1st angel.

At the present time the four winds of destruction are being held back by the four angels at the River of Euphrates.

Verse 2: "Then I saw another angel ascend from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea,"

This angel is the 7th angel, who is the establisher of Baha'u'llah's Revelation [1] who has the seal of the living God in his forehead. This seal is the intellect that is located in the forebrain of the 7th angel. The sun is a symbol of Baha'u'llah.

Verse 3: "saying, 'Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God upon their foreheads.'"

This means that God will keep the catastrophes [2] from happening until the 7th angel has sealed the servants of God upon their foreheads. That is, these 144,000 use their intellect to determine truth from falsity, instead of going on blind faith like the indoctrinated Christians that follow the corrupt clergy: that sell Jesus Christ on the cross for the dollar; and the deluded Covenant-breaking "Baha'is": that blindly follow the Covenant-breaker's religious cult created by Ruhiyyih Khanum and the "Hands", and their invention of their headless monster on Golem [3] street on Mt. Carmel.

That is, the nuclear war is held back until the 7th angel has sealed 144,000 on their forehead, meaning that 144,000 will use their intellect which is in the forebrain.

Verse 4: "And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand sealed, out of every tribe of the sons of Israel,"

Israel means those that strive with God—meaning the Baha'is that are under the violation of the Covenant. Only 144,000 of these 5 to 8 million Covenant-breakers will use their intellect and read the explanations that are found here in this book, that are given by Jesus on his return, to save his people who will listen.

Verse 5: " twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Judah, twelve thousand of the tribe of Reuben, twelve thousand of the tribe of Gad,

Verse 6: "twelve thousand of the tribe of Asher, twelve thousand of the tribe of Naph'tali, twelve thousand of the tribe of Manas'seh,

Verse 7: "twelve thousand of the tribe of Simeon, twelve thousand of the tribe of Levi, twelve thousand of the tribe of Is'sachar,

Verse 8: "twelve thousand of the tribe of Zeb'ulun, twelve thousand of the tribe of Joseph, twelve thousand sealed out of the tribe of Benjamin."

The present State of Israel is composed of only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, and half of the tribe of Levi. The ten tribes are known today as the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Salamancer the 5th, when he conquered the 10 Tribes of Israel in 721 BC, took them into Assyria (Iraq) and into Media (Iran). Baha'u'llah was born and raised in Iran (Media). He was exiled to Iraq, where the Jews (two tribes) also had been taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar, and brought into Babylon, or Iraq (Assyria). Therefore, as Baha'u'llah came from Iran, and made His Proclamation in Iraq, the first people that believed in Him were those from Iran and Iraq. When He left Iraq to go to Constantinople—and then to Adrianople, and then to Acca—those that came with him were, therefore, a remnant of these Twelve Tribes. Thus, when people around the world became Baha'is they were grafted into these Twelve Tribes (see Romans 11). Therefore, those who turned to Baha'u'llah, and followed Him from Iran and Iraq, represent the regathering of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. Thus, Baha'u'llah brought a remnant of the Twelve Tribes of Israel back to Israel, when He was brought there as a prisoner. In Israel, Baha'u'llah wrote His Covenant, and whoever accepts this Covenant is grafted into Israel (which means "he who strives with God") under its new name Baha'i.

The Jews in Israel are no longer part of Israel, as Paul tells us in the eleventh chapter of Romans, that they were taken off the Tree for unbelief when they rejected their Messiah, Jesus Christ; and the gentiles who accepted Jesus, were grafted on in their place (see Romans 11:17-21). Likewise, this applies to Israel under its new name Baha'i, and the gathering of the 144,000.

Romans 11 verse 17-21: "But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the richness of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember it is not you that support the root but the root [Baha'u'llah] that supports you.[4] You will say, "Branches were broken off so I might be grafted in." That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief [Covenant-breaking], but you stand fast only through faith [firmness in the Covenant / Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha]. So do not become proud, but stand in awe. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you."

When they (Israel under its new name, Baha'i) became Covenant-breakers, by going against Shoghi Effendi and the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, they were Baha'is from around the world. Thus the tribes of Israel were dispersed a second time—and in Isaiah 11:11, it says, that God "will extend his hand yet a second time to regather the remnant [144,000] of his people." Thus only 144,000 of these Covenant-breakers will come back under the provisions of the Covenant. The rest are for the fire, because they refuse to use their intellect that God gave them, and the principle of "Independent Investigation of the Truth" that Baha'u'llah gave them—they remain Covenant-breakers—and nobody can save a Covenant-breaker as long as they refuse to know the truth. They are behind a high wall of oppression, created by their slave owners. And, as long as they allow themselves to remain behind this wall of oppression, they will never know the truth. Jesus said: "seek ye the truth and the truth will set you free." In order for them to seek the truth they need to be jarred loose from their lethargy. Nothing will jar them loose except a great catastrophe, or calamity. This will happen when New York City is nuked by Iraq. This will happen when Saddam Hussein is assassinated by the US. America has called for this assassination, and the code name for it is "the Jackhammer." When this happens approximately 30 million people will be killed, and 144,000 Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" will repent and come under the provisions of the Covenant. But the multitude of Baha'is will not come under the provisions of the Covenant until after the nuclear war, which will last about one hour (Rev. 18:17, 19).

Romans 11 verse 22-25: "Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God's kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness [Covenant]; otherwise you too will be cut off. And even the others, if they do not persist in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. For if you have been cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree. Lest you be wise in your own conceits, I want you to understand this mystery, brethren: a hardening has come on part of Israel [Baha'i], until the full number of the Gentiles come in."

The Arch Covenant-breakers are the "Hands" that went against Shoghi Effendi and his son, the first International Baha'i Council. For the most part the followers of the Arch Covenant-breakers don't know that they are the Covenant-breakers. If they would just read the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, and see how they are in violation to that part of the Covenant, they could see that they are the Covenant-breakers. They are told by the Arch Covenant breakers—that lead part of the Baha'is astray—that the Baha'is that are faithful to, and are under the provisions of the Covenant, are the Covenant-breakers; and therefore they must shun them. They threw them this "red herring"—or ploy, or Artifice and Stratagem—to keep them in the dark, so they won't find out they are cohorts of the Covenant-breakers themselves, and don't know that they are sick unto death (spiritual leprosy). Because of this, there will only be 144,000 Covenant-breakers that will see the light, and come in under the Covenant before the great catastrophe. The mass of the Covenant-breakers will remain in the big cities, because they have been cut off from Divine Guidance by following the violation. They have been told by their Arch Covenant-breaking leaders that those that are under the provisions of the Covenant are the Covenant-breakers, and that they should shun them. This—what they told them—is a bold face LIE. The victims of this conspiracy believe this LIE without using their intellect that God gave them, and without using the principle of the "Independent Investigation of the Truth" that Baha'u'llah gave them. Therefore, they are of the wicked, and are for the fire (thermonuclear). Those that live through this will, along with all the rest of the people of the world, become Baha'is under the Provisions of the Covenant.

Romans 11 verse 26: "and so all Israel will be saved; as it is written, 'the Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob'"

The "deliverer that comes from Zion" refers to King David and his successors. This deliverer is the return of Jesus that reestablishes Zion, the Davidic lineage that the Arch Covenant-breakers threw out, back into the Baha'i faith. Thus he came forth from Zion. Thus all of Israel under its new name Baha'i will be saved. The "ungodliness of Jacob [Israel (Baha'i)]," is the violation of the Covenant by the Covenant-breaking "Hands", that threw out the Davidic lineage, which was the Executive Branch of the Universal House of Justice. Thus the deliverer saves (Israel), the Baha'i faith, by reestablishing this Davidic lineage back into the Baha'i faith.

Romans 11 verse 27: "'and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.'"

This Covenant is the Covenant of Baha'u'llah, the Kitab-i-Ahd. In this Covenant, Baha'u'llah states that when they come under His Covenant their passed ways are forgiven: "God hath forgiven your past ways."

Romans 11 verse 28: "As regards the gospel they are enemies of God, for your sake, but as regards election they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers."

This refers to the Christians that became Pagan with the Pagan trinity and the Incarnate god Lie. Jesus taught neither. Therefore, according to the gospel, they are the enemies of God. The Christians are elected, however, to become Baha'is, when they turn to the explanation, and commentaries, of the Lamb. They will sally forth and teach the rest of the apostate religions of God the Baha'i faith, as explained by the return of Jesus the Lamb.

Romans 11 verse 29: "For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable."

That is, the previous verse 26 is irrevocable.

Romans 11 verse 30: "Just as you were once disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience,"

God is merciful to their disobedience when they turn to Jesus on his return, and teach the nations, as Jesus on his first coming told them to do.

Romans 11 verse 31: "so they have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may receive mercy.

Romans 11 verse 32: "For God has consigned all men to disobedience, that He may have mercy upon all."

The whole world was in disobedience including the Baha'i faith. He has mercy for all by sending His Son, Jesus the Lamb, back to earth to bring all people under the Covenant of Baha'u'llah. Then all their past ways will be forgiven.

As one accepts the Covenant of Baha'u'llah they are "grafted in," that is, they become a part of Israel, Baha'i, and the New Covenant.

Revelation 7 verse 9: "After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands,"

The "palm branches in their hands" are a symbol of peace and acquiescence, or surrender. "standing before the throne and before the Lamb" symbolizes their steadfastness and belief in both the Guardian and the return of Jesus as the Lamb.

Here it shows that the people of the world will become believers. They will stand before the throne of David, with a descendant of David and of Baha'u'llah, Who is seated upon it, and before the Lamb (the return of Jesus as the Lamb). They will become spiritual and get white auras. The "palm branch" symbolizes submission to the Covenant.

That is, they are before the throne of David which succeeds from Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha with a descendant of David (Guardian) seated on the throne of David, as the president of the Universal House of Justice, and before the Lamb (the return of Jesus). The "palm branches" signifies "surrender."

The white robes are their auras. All the sins of the people are shown by different colors in their auras, as to what they are. In the next life these sins will be shown in their spiritual bodies (auras). Baha'u'llah stated in His Book of the Covenant, that when one comes under His Covenant, that his passed ways are forgiven. However, if they go against His Covenant, they are in their sins. Muhammad said that the worst thing that could happen to a believer is to become infidel. Jesus said that it would be better if they were never born. When they enter into heaven, Jesus will say, "get away from me you evil doers, I don't know you." Those that become Baha'i, and come under Baha'u'llah's Covenant and are faithful to it unto death of the physical body, they have the white robes, that is, all of their sins have been forgiven. Nobody in the next life would be able to know what their sins were.

"a great multitude" is more than one hundred and forty-four thousand. This is referring to those who will be believers following the great catastrophe, that is, the four winds of destruction, especially the first, the nuclear war. The number of believers then will be too many to count! These believers will be of all nationalities and kindred, united in the knowledge of the truth of God's Revelation through the explanations of the Lamb. Through his explanations they will be confirmed in the Covenant of Baha'u'llah and faithful to the Guardian who is seated upon the throne.

Verse 10: "and crying out with a loud voice, 'Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!'"

The Guardian, who sits upon the throne, is the sign of God on earth. The Lamb is the return of Jesus "the Son" who returns to establish his Father's—Baha'u'llah's—Kingdom—Who is the return of Christ (a male sperm descendant of King David) seated on the throne of David.

Baha'u'llah said that the kings are signs of God, especially the Davidic kings, who are seated on the throne of David as the Guardians at the head of the Universal House of Justice, and the Lamb who is the 7th angel, the establisher of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah.

Verse 11: "And all the angels stood round the throne and round the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped God,"

An "angel is a man [generic] qualified with heavenly attributes and character" (SAQ, p. 66). The throne is the throne of David, with the Guardian seated upon it. The elders are the 24 Apostles of the Lamb and are the members of the second International Baha'i Council. The four living creatures are the United States, England, France and Russia after they become Baha'i nations. Before that, in the King James Version, they are called beasts, as they do not possess a Branch of the Holy Spirit.

The four living creatures are, today, the four beasts of Revelation chapter 13 verse 2. They are the United States, the Eagle; the Leopard, France; the Lion, England; the Bear, Russia. When they receive a Branch of the Holy Spirit they become Baha'i nations. They then are living creatures.

Verse 12: "saying, 'Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God for ever and ever! Amen.'

Verse 13: "Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, 'who are these, clothed in white robes and whence have they come?'

Verse 14: "I said to him, 'Sir, you know.' And he said to me, 'These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.'"

"clothed in white robes" indicates that these people will have acquired a pure soul, for the robes refer to their spiritual bodies, or auras, which is described as white to symbolize purity. They have reached the station of angels.

The multitudes in white robes are those that come out of the great tribulation, having two meanings. In one case, 1) they are those that come out of the great thermonuclear war; and, the other, 2) Baha'u'llah explains in the Kitab-i-Iqan: that "tribulation," as used, is the great oppression. Meaning: those that are under the oppression of what is called the "mainstream Baha'is"—that was imposed upon them by the wicked witch, Ruhiyyih Khanum, and the Covenant-breaking "Hands", when they went against Shoghi Effendi, doing away with the "Plan of God" that Shoghi Effendi had set up.

After the nuclear war, the multitudes that are left will come out of the oppression that they were under, and become part of the Baha'i faith that was brought by Baha'u'llah, delineated by 'Abdu'l-Baha, and set up by Shoghi Effendi, and is now being established in this world by the Lamb, who is the return of Jesus the High Priest. The "blood of the Lamb" is the Covenant. Jesus said the wine, or the blood, are symbols of the Covenant. To be washed in the Covenant saves those that have been hoodwinked and bamboozled by Ruhiyyih Khanum, the "Hands", and their phony headless House of Justice that is not justice at all; and of the multitudes of Christians and other Major religions that survive the great catastrophe.

Baha'u'llah, in the Iqan [5] explains that the word "tribulation" is translated from the Greek word "Thlipsis," which means oppression. So this is mainly the oppression of the mass of the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is." They are forbidden by their corrupt leaders to use their intellect that God gave them, and the principle of Baha'u'llah of "Independent Investigation of the Truth."

These two verses leave no doubt that this great multitude refers to those who come through the catastrophe of destruction. "They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb" means that through the explanations of the Lamb, these people have become believers, and have purified their souls by turning to and accepting the Covenant, as explained in the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha. "Wine" or blood are symbols of the Covenant. The Lamb washes them in the Covenant, and frees them from the great oppression of the Arch Covenant-breakers.

Verse 15: "'Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night within his temple; and he who sits upon the throne will shelter them with his presence.'"

The temple refers to the Holy of Holies, which is symbolized in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid. This is where the Covenant is placed in the Ark of the Covenant, and the High Priest (Jesus on his return) stands before this Ark of the Covenant, and takes it out and explains it to those that are teaching the true Baha'i faith. There is only one person in the world that, according to scriptures, is allowed to enter the Holy of Holies and stand before the Ark of the Covenant and interpret the Covenant of Baha'u'llah and Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha. Without this interpretation the Peoples are fuel for the fire.

These believers are "before the throne of God" meaning that they accept the continuation of the Guardianship and turn to the living Guardian who sits upon the throne, as delineated by 'Abdu'l-Baha in his Sacred Will and Testament.

"his temple" is the presence of God which is in the Revelation of Baha'u'llah. By accepting and becoming steadfast in this Revelation they will "serve him day and night."

Verse 16: "'They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.'"

The "sun" here refers to the nuclear, or hydrogen bomb, which is the same kind of explosion of the sun, which is hydrogen explosions. Also, they will no longer hunger for the bread of life that cometh down from Heaven, which is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah; and they won't thirst for the water of life.

They will hunger no more either physically or spiritually, for there will be an abundance of food, and they will have the spiritual bread that is the true teachings of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah; and they will drink the pure wine, which is the true Covenant of Baha'u'llah. The nuclear bomb is the same as the sun—that is, the nucleus of the hydrogen atoms are squeezed into one, causing them to explode. They will be free from the thermonuclear war that is about to fall upon mankind.

Verse 17: "'For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'"

The Lamb in the midst of the throne guides them to the living waters, which is the water of life—of which is not only the true interpretations of this book, but is the true interpretations of all of the Christians and Baha'i prophecies—thus leading all of the peoples of the world to "the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven" that Jesus asked us to pray for, and Baha'u'llah brought. This prayer is called the Lord's prayer, and is the only prayer that Jesus revealed, and Baha'u'llah established in His Covenant, and the Covenant-breaking "Baha'is" violated: and thus led 5 to 8 million Baha'is astray into perdition (utter destruction). By the Lamb's explanations and commentaries, he gets the Christians and the Baha'is back on the right track again. The only hope for safety, security and salvation, for anyone, is the living waters that the good shepherd, the Lamb, guides them to. God so loved the world that he sent His beloved Son, the Lamb, back into the world, to save those that are eagerly waiting for him. The main way that God tests the people is that He sends a Promised One that is prophesied in Holy scriptures. Each of the Promised Ones are prophesied by the Name that he will come in, the Address where he can be found, the Date for his appearance and his prophesied Mission. The Lamb fulfilled these prophecies. How can anyone miss him if they use their intellect to examine the proofs?

By the explanations of the Lamb, the people become believers in the Revelation of Baha'u'llah, and firm in His Covenant. These two verses (16 and 17) are symbolic of both the spiritual and physical needs of the believers.

4 "The root of Jesse." See Isaiah 11:10; SAQ chapter 11; the Kitab-i-Aqdas and the Kitab-i-Ahd. Baha'u'llah being the second coming of Christ is the Ancient Root. That is, Jesse is the father of King David, and the second coming of Christ is a male-sperm descendant of King David, which is Baha'u'llah. The root supports us—we do not support the root. [back]
