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.

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;

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

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

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 faith 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 their 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. But without the executive branch, they cannot have justice. (303) If they don’t repent, they will lose 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.

6 “‘Yet this you have, you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.’”

These Covenant-breakers “hate the works of the Nicolaitans,” yet 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 of His Cause.

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 Christians, “to eat of the tree of life” is to go by the Kabbalah tree given by Abraham, as explained in Chapter 10, Part One of this book. To the Baha'is, 'Abdu'l-Baha has stated that the tree of life is the Covenant. The Covenant-breakers eat of the fruits of the tree of life, which are the 12 basic principles of the Baha'i faith, but to receive eternal life they must eat of the tree itself, that is, of the Covenant. Unless they abide by the Covenant, meaning all of its provisions, they will surely die. This is eternal death; that is, it is everlasting.

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. He has come in the prophesied name, address, date, and mission. He reestablishes the International Baha'i Council, which Shoghi Effendi had set up as the embryonic Universal House of Justice, which was his son and was to be his successor, and that the Covenant-breaking “Hands” bypassed to set up their Headless Monster.

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 by accepting the son of Shoghi Effendi, which was the first International Baha'i Council with 'Abdu'l-Baha’s adopted son, Charles Mason Remey, as its president and continuation of the guardianship. Baha'u'llah was a descendant of King David who was of the tribe of Judah (Jewish), making the guardianship Jewish. Mason Remey, a Gentile (a non-Jew), was, by adoption, grafted into the tribe of Judah. Many claimed to be the continuation of the guardianship and the one succeeding Mason Remey, but they were not grafted in, therefore they are those who are of the synagogue of Satan. 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.

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 Christianity and the Baha'i faith. For Christianity, the “ten days” are the ten centuries, or the thousand years during which the Pope took the Bible away from the Christians and gave the corrupt catechism in its place.

As applied to the Baha'i faith, each day equals one year. The ten days, or years, are 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, Dr. Leland 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, however, this has not been fulfilled yet. This could take place right after New York is destroyed. According to the prophecies of Nostradamus, the United Nations building will be destroyed, and the city of New York along with it. “Ten days” later this could start World War III, with the United States retaliating with nukes. This war will be fought between Christian nations, with the white race being decimated, nine-tenths being killed.

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 steed 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.

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

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, reestablished Nimrod’s Empire and was the head of the trinitarian religion that was invented and established by Nimrod’s wife Semiramis. Nimrod’s Empire consisted of an area extending from the Middle East all the way to the straits of Gibraltar. Nimrod claimed that his star was Saturn, giving us the name of Satan. He was executed for heresy. His body was 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 the child was born into the world, Semiramis called her son Bar Nin, the son of Nimrod, and claimed he was the incarnation of his father Nimrod. Thus, she created the trinitarian god lie, which consisted of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This trinity doctrine crept into other religions including Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity.

After Cyrus the Great, a Zoroastrian believing in the One True Invisible God, conquered the Babylonians in 539 BC, he allowed the Jews that were in captivity in Babylon to go back to the city of Jerusalem and begin to rebuild their temple that had been destroyed by the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar. Cyrus also expelled the pagan religion of the trinity from the empire that he had just acquired. He expelled it to Pergamum. From Pergamum, this religion crept into Christianity. At the Council of Nicaea, this pagan religion 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 everyone must accept it or be put to death. However, most of the true Christians left Rome and went to the northern part of Europe, where they multiplied. Later, in the eighth century, Charlemagne went up to the Saxons in the northern part of Europe 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.

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” refers to the fact that Christianity was becoming infected with pagan concepts. A common doctrine in 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 from this, they must eat His flesh and drink His blood, as it seems to say in the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John. This is called the Eucharist or Communion.

These ideas come from paganism, not from 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 this food is the body of the god, that is, it is their idolatry that can harm them.

“Now concerning food offered to idols: we know that ‘all of us possess knowledge.’ ‘Knowledge’ puffs up, but love builds up. If any one imagines that he knows something, he does not yet know as he ought to know. But if one loves God, one is known by him. 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.’ For although there may be so-called gods in heaven or on earth - as indeed there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords’ - 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. 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. 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 8:1-8).

“What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 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. 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” (1 Corinthians 10:19-21).

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 symbolic. They thought Jesus was God incarnate, and that He sacrificed the food of Himself instead of them sacrificing it, and now all that was left for them to do was eat it and they would receive the supernatural blessing of being saved; that is, the blessing of having their sins forgiven so they wouldn’t have to die. They believe they eat Him when they take communion. This trinitarian religion of Pergamum, in the world today as Christianity, holds fast to the name of “Christ,” but when they take the Eucharist, they believe they are eating the body of Jesus and drinking His blood and thus have Christ in them. They do this rather than eating the bread that was a symbol for digesting His teachings and drinking the wine that was a symbol for believing in His Covenant (see John 6:35). 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.

15 “‘So you also have some who hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

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 warring against the pagan Christians with the sword of the tongue of his mouth. These explanations are the explanations of Jesus on his second coming.

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 conquer (overcome their pagan indoctrination), the promised return of Jesus gives the “hidden manna,” which consists of these explanations. These explanations are not found in any of the Christian or Baha'i writings. therefore they are 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 as given by Baha'u'llah. The name of God given by Moses was given to the high priest only. “God” is not the name of God. God is what He is. All the Israelites were allowed to know the consonants in the name of God, which are Y, H, V, and H. However, only the high priest was given the vowels. The full name of God was kept from the Israelites because to take God’s name in vain was against 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.” The high priest would go into the Holy of Holies once a year and 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. He just called Him Father. But those who become Baha'i are given the new name of God. The name of God was originally written on a white stone, but copies are now written on paper. It is given in either Arabic or Persian letters and is arranged like a logo or graphic so 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, God hears their prayers.

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.

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 has to do with the fact that in this day, with the use of modern technology in transportation and communication, Christianity has spread rapidly and extensively around the world. The same thing applies to the Baha'i faith.

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 corrupted Christianity, created by Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod. All the idols of paganism have 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 are sacrificed to idols of the imagination. Ruhiyyih Khanum has the Baha'is sacrificing the provisions of the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, including the provision for the executive branch of the House of Justice, as she has completely done away with the head or executive branch, and has her followers eating 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 his 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.

21 “‘I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her immorality.’”

God gave Ruhiyyih Khanum the time from the passing of Shoghi Effendi in 1957, to the time of her passing to repent, but she refused to do so.

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

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 minds and hearts. Unless you repent, you will get what you deserve.

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 who are unaware of the “deep things of Satan.” Covenant-breaking Baha'is are much more stubborn and worse than Christians because the Covenant-breaking Baha'is are loyal to the Arch Covenant-breakers, and therefore they refuse to investigate the matter for themselves. They do this, thinking it will earn them brownie points and move them up in the administration.

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.

26 “‘He who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, I will give him power over the nations,’”

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

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.

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 and all the people of the world will come under this World Order of Baha'u'llah.

29 “’He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

This means the people, for their own security, safety, and salvation, should lend their ear to hear these explanations about the prophecies in the Revelation of Jesus, and how these prophecies are being fulfilled.
