Fairest of the Gods

THOR was not the only son of Odin and Frigg. They had three other sons: BALDER, HODER and TYR. These three gods are mentioned in the legends far less than Thor. But what they represent is important to discuss. Just as Thor symbolizes the guardianship of the Baha'i faith, these brothers symbolize different aspects of the Baha'i faith as well. The first of the three brothers born after Thor is Balder. Balder represents Shoghi Effendi, the first guardian of the Baha'i faith.

Even though Balder was so loving and full of light, Odin knew he would be killed. Odin also knew this was to be first in a series of events that would lead to Ragnarok, the day the world is wrecked, which is the great catastrophe spoken of in all world religions. Balder is later killed by his blind brother who was coaxed by Loki. But before Balder died he had a son named Forseti. Forseti is a symbol for the International Baha'i Council/Universal House of Justice that was to succeed Shoghi Effendi as the infallible head of the faith. One of the purposes of the UHJ is to solve the world's differences through a world court of arbitration. The decisions reached by the UHJ are to be regarded as decisions made by God. The UHJ is infallible, this is promised to us by God. Forseti appears as the son of Balder because the UHJ succeeds Shoghi Effendi after his death in 1957.

The Blind God

Odin's third son was Hoder, the blind god. Most of AEsir deities felt sympathy for him. Balder's brother, Hoder, was blind. Later it will be shown how Hoder's blindness was used to bring sadness to all of Asgard but, for the time being he lived happily enough. Although Hoder could not see the beauty of Asgard, there were plenty of things he could appreciate: the warm rays of the sun, the hundred and one sounds of birds and animals, the speech and music of the other gods. In those days no one in Asgard was unhappy.

The blind Hoder is symbolic of the blind believers of the Baha'i faith that followed the Hands of the Cause of God after the usurpation of the UHJ. These people still enjoy the rays of the sun and the speech of the gods, meaning they still have the writings, principles, and teachings of Baha'u'llah to which they can turn, but they are actually blind to the usurpation of the faith by the Hands of the Cause of God. After the "Hands" proclaimed that God had changed His mind, the believers could have investigated and found the truth. Instead, they blindly followed the "Hands" who had no authority in such matters, even if it meant breaking God's Eternal Covenant with man. When the "Hands" first met after the death of Shoghi Effendi, some of them brought writings of Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha. Ruhiyyih told them to close the books because they would have different interpretations of the writings and that would cause disunity. This is clear evidence that Ruhiyyih never had any intention of following the true plan of God, but would invent her own plan instead. The ignorant believers followed this blindly. They are blind because they refuse to see, thus they are blindly going into destruction when the world is wrecked in Ragnarok.


Odin's fourth son was TYR, a very brave god indeed. There is no doubt that Tyr was the most daring and courageous of all of AEsir and many tales are told about him. Brave warriors on earth carved his rune spell on the handle of their swords and called on his name when they went into battle. (Brian Branston, Gods and Heroes from Viking Mythology, p. 42)

While giving victory to his followers, he also gave to them the gifts of law and order, and he was regarded as the deity who upheld the universe. He ruled the realm of the sky as well as that of battle. Little is known of Tyr, except that men turned to him for help in war and put his initial, the runic sign for T, on weapons in early Anglo-Saxon period. In Edda poems it was remembered that his name might be used in this way to give help to the warriors. (H.R. Ellis Davidson, Scandinavian Mythology, p. 51)

Tyr is a symbol of the lineal descendants of King David who were the protectors of the laws. They were exilarchs seated on the throne of David up until the Advent of Baha'u'llah Who gave new laws and continued this lineage of David. He continued this lineage of David by appointing His son 'Abdu'l-Baha, who appointed Shoghi Effendi to replace Muhammad Ali, who had broken the Covenant. 'Abdu'l-Baha conferred infallibility on Shoghi Effendi that would have been conferred on Muhammad Ali had he not broken the Covenant. 'Abdu'l-Baha did this to protect the laws of Baha'u'llah. But Shoghi Effendi was not a male descendant of King David, as he was descended from 'Abdu'l-Baha through his mother, who was 'Abdu'l-Baha's daughter, and the Davidic lineage is not passed down through the female. There was never a woman seated upon the throne of David. Therefore 'Abdu'l-Baha adopted Mason Remey to be his son and to inherit and continue the Davidic lineage. Baha'u'llah only provided for two male successors: 'Abdu'l-Baha and Muhammad Ali. Because Muhammad Ali broke the Covenant, 'Abdu'l-Baha replaced him with Shoghi Effendi, and then the House of Justice: "To none is given the right to put forth his own opinion or express his particular convictions. All must seek guidance and turn to the Center of the Cause [Shoghi Effendi] and [then] the House of Justice. And he that turneth unto whatsoever else is indeed in grievous error" (Will and Testament, p. 26). The son and successor to Shoghi Effendi was the Universal House of Justice in embryo, called the first International Baha'i Council, and those that turned to anything else were in grievous error. This embryonic House of Justice consists of two important features: One, the infallibility of Shoghi Effendi, was passed on to this House of Justice; and the other, the Davidic lineage, which is the executive branch, was passed on to Tyr, 'Abdu'l-Baha's son, who is the protector of the law.

Tyr, the Davidic lineage, plays a significant role in the story of the binding wolf. The wolf, Fenrir (the spirit of violation), the only one of Loki's evil children left in Asgard (the meeting place of the gods), was growing too strong for the gods to control. Tyr was the only god to which the wolf could speak. A series of bets took place in which the wolf was challenged to break free from the fetters (of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah) constructed by the gods. He did so easily. Then the gods had a special thread (Gleipnir) designed by the dwarves. The wolf (the violation) did not want to accept the challenge because of the cunning that went into making it. The wolf finally agreed when Tyr laid his hand inside of his mouth so if he could not break free, Tyr would lose his hand. The bond (Covenant of Baha'u'llah) held and Tyr's hand was lost.

This is talking about the Hands of the Cause of God and the Guardian who lost the Hands to satanic intentions, the wolf. Tyr losing his hand is a fundamental legend in Northern Europe just as the breaking of the Covenant by the Hands of the Cause of God is a major degeneration in the Baha'i faith, with the Covenant-breakers following Hel, so they are going to Hell.

With the five million or so Covenant-breaking Baha'is going down the tube by being followers of Hel, is there any solution to this debacle? Is all of mankind to be completely destroyed, because the healing medicine given by God through His Divine Physician for the healing of this very sick world, has fallen into the hands of the quacks, or charlatans? HEAVENS NO! There is another Promised One to come to save the day, so-to-speak. He is prophesied in Scandinavian prophecy as Heimdall. WHO IS HEIMDALL?
