OVER THE WALL OF OPPRESSION
PART II, THE BOOK OF REVELATION
By Dr. Leland Jensen
1 “After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was made bright with his splendor.”
This “angel” refers to Dr. Leland Jensen. He comes “down from heaven” meaning that he comes from the heaven of prophecy, or the heaven of God’s Will. He was prophesied by name as “the land.” He was prophesied by address. He was prophesied by date by Daniel. His mission is to establish the Kingdom of his Father, Baha'u'llah. This gives him “great authority.”
There is a Greater and Lesser Covenant. The Lesser Covenant is the Covenant the Manifestations make, designating their successors. In the Baha'i faith, it is the Covenant (Kitab-i-'Ahd) that Baha'u'llah made concerning His successors. The Greater Covenant is the one God makes concerning the coming of a Promised One of God. Dr. Jensen does not come under the Lesser Covenant that Baha'u'llah made concerning His successors, but is under the Greater Covenant.
He was prophesied by the name he would have, “the land” (Leland, Zechariah 3:9).
He was also prophesied by the date he would come. That date is April 21, 1963. Daniel gave four dates for the coming of Jesus. The first was 490 days/years (each day is a year: Numbers 14:34). This is figured from the order to restore and rebuild Jerusalem in 457 BC. Counting 490 years from 457 BC brings us to 34 AD, the date of the crucifixion of Jesus. The second date is 1260. This was for the Bab Who made His proclamation in 1260 AH (After the Hejira of Muhammad). The Bab set up the Baha'i calendar starting on March 21, 1844 (which is the same year as 1260 AH). The third is 1290. This is 1290 lunar years from the proclamation of Muhammad to the proclamation of Baha'u'llah. The fourth date is in Daniel 12:12 where is says: “Blessed is he who comes to the 1335 days/years.”
“'Abdu'l-Baha’s tablets make it clear that this prophecy refers to the one hundredth anniversary of the Declaration of Baha'u'llah in Baghdad, or the year 1963 AD.” (312)
This is when he began his mission by being opposed by Satan. This date is calculated from the victory of Muhammad in 628 AD: 628 + 1335 = 1963. He will be victorious by the end of this century in establishing the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Daniel said, “Blessed is he,” meaning he is “Blessed” by God. That is, his inspiration is not from himself but is from God. However, he is not a Divine Manifestation of God bringing a new Revelation direct from God. He is the establisher of the Baha'i faith, like Joshua was the establisher of Moses’ Revelation, and Paul was the establisher of Christianity, and Ali was the establisher of Islam.
The address for his coming is the “stone with seven eyes,” which is in Deer Lodge, Montana, where he resided for four years. In addition, Deer Lodge is between two mountains of brass or copper, in Butte and Lincoln, Montana, which are the two biggest mountains of brass or copper in the United States.
His mission is to reestablish in the world what the Covenant-breakers threw out when they went against Shoghi Effendi. Namely, they threw out the executive branch of the Universal House of Justice. Without the executive branch there could be no justice and without justice there could not be a Universal House of Justice: “The legislative body must reinforce the executive, the executive must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself.” (313)
“Having great authority” means he comes under the “Greater Covenant,” that is, he is prophesied in scriptures and will be able to do that which is God’s Will. Through his explanations and commentaries, the Revelation of Baha'u'llah will be established, as will the Kingdom of God.
2 “And he called out with a mighty voice, ‘Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird;’“
The “mighty voice” is the explanations of this Promised One.
“Babylon” again refers to the city of Rome, which is the seat of the trinitarian religion and the cause of a wicked and tempestuous civilization.
3 “‘for all nations have drunk the wine of her impure passion, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich with the wealth of her wantonness.’”
By adhering to the trinitarian doctrine and the incarnate God lie of the papacy, the nations and kings of the earth have gained their temporal power and great wealth. When the kings “fornicated” with this diseased whore, they caught her disease. It is like comparing this spiritual disease to AIDS today. It is deadly.
4 “Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues
5 for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.’”
The “voice” is that of the return of Jesus the Lamb calling God’s chosen to come away from Babylon (the trinity doctrine) and seek the truth so they do not commit the same wrongdoings, and therefore suffer with her the horrible things that are to befall this city and those who remain indoctrinated in her lies and dogmas. It also refers to the 144,000 Baha'is who are pure of heart but entrapped by the Covenant-breaking mainstream Baha'is.
6 “‘Render to her as she herself has rendered, and repay her double for her deeds; mix a double draught for her in the cup she mixed.
7 As she glorified herself and played the wanton, so give her a like measure of torment and mourning. Since in her heart she says, ‘A queen I sit, I am no widow, mourning I shall never see,’"
The Catholic Church claims to be the bride of Christ, therefore she believes she is a “queen.” She sets herself supremely above all the religions of the world, believing she is unequaled in power, wealth, glory, and authority. She fears nothing, thinking no harm could possibly fall upon her. By her wantonness, she has seduced the kings of the earth to fornicate with her. The voice from heaven says to give her more than what she has earned by her deeds, deeds that have merited nothing but “torment and mourning.”
8 “‘so shall her plagues come in a single day, pestilence and mourning and famine and she shall be burned with fire; for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.’”
The nuclear war will take no more than a “single day.” This will be the time of judgment for the papacy, which was the creator of the antichrist. They went against the genealogy of Jesus through His father Joseph back to King David by saying God was His physical father. The meaning of the word “Christ” is an anointed sperm descendant of King David. If God was the physical father of Jesus, Jesus could not be the Christ, for God is not a descendant of King David. The “plagues” referred to here are the result of the nuclear holocaust. This prostitute religion and the city of Rome will be utterly destroyed.
9 “And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and were wanton with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning;
10 they will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, ‘Alas! Alas! thou great city, thou mighty city, Babylon! In one hour has thy judgment come.’”
The “kings of the earth” are those governments that have supported the dogma of the papacy (the trinity). They will grieve over her destruction.
It takes twenty-five minutes for a missile leaving its base in Russia to reach and explode over its target in the United States, and then another twenty-five minutes for a missile leaving its base in the United States to reach its target in Russia. The exchange of nuclear warheads will be over “in one hour,” and Babylon will have received its “judgment.
11 “And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo any more,
12 cargo of gold, silver, jewels, and pearls, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, all articles of ivory, all articles of costly wood, bronze, iron and marble,”
These elements are basic to almost everything manufactured in the world. The reason “no one buys their cargo anymore” is because a third of mankind will have perished in the nuclear war in one hour.
13 “cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and slaves, that is, human souls.”
By supporting the papacy, the “merchants of the earth” have gained much of their wealth. After the nuclear holocaust, the great productivity of the nations will either be destroyed or greatly reduced. Mankind will no longer have the temporal wealth nor those things that the merchants have to offer as their gods.
14 “‘The fruit for which thy soul longed has gone from thee, and all thy dainties and thy splendour are lost to thee, never to be found again!’”
Rome will be destroyed and will never be rebuilt. The wealth and power that it has acquired will be lost forever. First, it will be destroyed by fire (nuclear), and then it will be inundated by the earth’s shifting crust.
15 “The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her, will stand far off, in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning aloud,
16 ‘Alas, alas, for the great city that was clothed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet, bedecked with gold, with jewels, and with pearls!’”
“Linen” refers to the clerical robes. “Purple” is the cloth of royalty and symbolizes the temporal power of the papacy.
“Scarlet” is the color of the cloth of the cardinals and the cardinals are the ones who elect the pope.
17 “‘In one hour all this wealth has been laid waste.’ And all shipmasters and seafaring men, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea, stood far off
18 and cried out as they saw the smoke of her burning, ‘What city was like the great city?’
19 And they threw dust on their heads, as they wept and mourned, crying out, ‘Alas, alas, for the great city where all who had ships at sea grew rich by her wealth! In one hour she has been laid waste.’”
All those who have gained their wealth through the “great city” will mourn over her loss and realize that the source of their own wealth is gone, never to be regained.
“One hour” is the time it will take for Rome to be destroyed in the thermonuclear war.
20 “‘Rejoice over her, O heaven, O saints and apostles and prophets, for God has given judgment for you against her!’”
Through the destruction of Rome, which is the seat of the whore (Catholic Church), justice is given to those who were wronged by her. These Holy Ones are told to rejoice over her demise.
21 “Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, ‘So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence and shall be found no more
22 and the sound of harpers and minstrels, of flute players and trumpeters, shall be heard in thee no more; and a craftsman of any craft shall be found in thee no more; and the sound of the millstone shall be heard in thee no more
23 and the light of a lamp shall shine in thee no more; and the voice of bridegroom and bride, shall be heard in thee no more; for thy merchants were the great men of the earth, and all nations were deceived by thy sorcery.’”
Rome is the second Babylon. Just as ancient Babylon was the wicked city of Nebuchadnezzar, who conquered Judaea and destroyed the temple, so Rome, the city of the papacy, conquered Christianity and destroyed the temple, which is the Presence of God, and replaced it with the pagan trinity and the incarnate god lie.
As a “great millstone” (about 16 tons) would sink to the bottom of the sea, so too will the city of Rome sink as it is inundated during the earth’s shifting crust. Materially and spiritually, this city will be lost forever and it will never be rebuilt.
“Thy sorcery” refers to the idols that were made to cry with tears, bleed, moan, etc. The church deceived many people with these idols by making them believe that Christ Himself caused these actions. The Shroud of Turin is an example of the church’s deception.
24 “‘And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth.’”
The deaths of the “prophets and saints,” and of the believers and seekers of truth, are blamed upon that great city, Rome. Bringing trinitarianism and the incarnate god lie into Christianity was spiritual death, accomplished through the Inquisition (in which millions perished), as well as through Pepin and Charlemagne’s slaughter of millions of non-trinitarian Christians in Europe, including the Saxons. The papacy brought the beast into existence and will be destroyed in the oncoming nuclear war, the physical death.
