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,

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.’

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.

4 “And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped 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.

“The four living creatures” are the four world powers that were once 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 was a descendant of King David seated on the throne of David. All who are believers in the Revelation of Baha'u'llah will understand through the Lamb’s explanations that the guardian is the sign of God on earth. Therefore, they will worship God.

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.

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 that is still living after the four winds of destruction are complete, for at that time everyone will be Baha'i.

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;

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.

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 and faithful to the Covenant, of being the Covenant-breakers. Thus, they 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.

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, which 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.

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 which 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. The “white horse” symbolizes strength, white symbolizing the purity of God’s religion. “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, who did away with the executive branch of the Universal House of Justice. Without the executive branch, there could be no justice, 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 a dead carcass that is Christian in name only. This dead carcass is not only dead, but it also 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 without a head stinks to high heaven and will be buried and put into a grave with the oncoming thermonuclear war.

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 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. The “many diadems” are the many titles used to refer to the Lamb in the various verses of the Holy Text, i.e., the Lamb, the 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 “the land” was 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.

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 returns as the High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. The robe dipped in blood is also 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.

14 “And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, followed him on white horses.”

Those who follow the knight on the white horse become knights also. 'Abdu'l-Baha said 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!’” (314)

Shoghi Effendi said: “Stupendous as is the struggle which His words foreshadow, they also testify to complete victory which the upholders of the Greatest Name are destined to eventually achieve.” (315)

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.

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.”

The “sharp sword” is the explanations of Jesus the Lamb that issue “from his mouth.” Like a two-edged sword that cuts with either edge, the explanations of the Lamb separate the good from the bad (the sheep from the goats). With his explanations, the antichrist (anti-Christ) Christians and the beast nations that they created, as well as the Covenant-breakers (mainstream Baha'is), are exposed. Then they either return to the true Baha'i administration, or they 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.

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 carries into battle 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 because His father sat upon the throne of King David, which Baha'u'llah inherited and sits upon. Baha'u'llah in His Proclamation, page 89, stated that He rules “upon the throne of David.”

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” means his teachings are heard throughout the world on radio, TV, newspapers, news magazines, the internet, 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 between the apostolic age, that of the martyrs, and the age 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.” This is the supper of God.

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 from Russia will fly over the north pole and bomb the big cites of 100,000 people 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 has been dubbed 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.

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 of Baha'u'llah’s Covenant and the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, i.e., the Covenant-breakers, 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 who is seated on the white horse in this chapter is the same Knight of Baha'u'llah in chapter 6 who has the Covenant (bow) of Baha'u'llah in his hand, and who “went out conquering and to conquer.”

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 worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone.

The “beast” is the United Nations, dominated by the four world powers: England, France, Russia, and the United States, who, along with China, have veto power on the Security Council. The Security Council of the UN 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 the resurrection of Jesus’ body of believers: “...for the church [congregation] which is his body” (Ephesians 1:22,23).

It was this body, the body of believers, that resurrected. That is, they became believers again. Christians are taught that Jesus ascended up into the sky, instead of heaven. Thus, the Christians today are looking for him to come out of the sky rather than out of the heaven of prophecy, even though He came out of the heaven of prophecy on His first coming. 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,” the crucifix, are the Christians.

The “lake of fire” is the nuclear war.

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 but are slain by that which 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 the Tree of Life is the Covenant. Those who become firm in the Covenant through explanations that issue from the mouth of the Knight of Baha'u'llah, enter into the Kingdom. The sword is a two-edged sword that cuts both ways. For those who go against the words (the sword) that issue from the mouth of him who is seated on the white horse, the birds will be “gorged with their flesh.” The birds are the missiles with nuclear warheads.
