1 “And I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals;”

This is the guardian, Mason Remey, who is “seated on the throne” of David, being a descendant of David by being the adopted son of 'Abdu'l-Baha. An adopted son has all the rights and privileges of a natural son including the kingship. The “scroll” (or book) written within is the Kitab-i-'Ahd (Book of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah) and that which is written “on the back” is the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha, that 'Abdu'l-Baha sealed with seven seals. This Will and Testament shows Mason Remey’s authority to be the guardian.

2 “and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, ‘Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?’

3 And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,

4 and I wept much that no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.

5 Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Weep not; lo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.’”

Jesus said He was the root and offspring of David, “I Jesus have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star” (Rev. 22:16). As Jesus gave His Revelation in this book of Revelation, and as He is the root and offspring of David, only Jesus on his second coming can give the explanation of this Revelation. Baha'u'llah, a descendant of King David seated on the throne of King David, is the return of the root of King David. As this is Baha'u'llah’s scroll written inside and on the back and sealed with seven seals, certainly, He could explain His Covenant, as He wrote it; but He didn’t explain His Covenant.

Therefore, only Jesus the Lamb on his return can explain the Covenant (scroll) of Baha'u'llah. Jesus on His first coming was the sacrificial Lamb, but he returns as the Lamb with seven horns and with seven eyes (verse 6). The seven horns are the seven alive revealed religions. Living religions mean those that have congregations. The Adamic religion and the Babi religion no longer have followers. The seven alive religions are Judaism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and the Baha'i faith. The book that has seven seals is the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha that he sealed with seven seals. What is being said here is that only Jesus on his return can explain the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha.

6 “And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth;

7 and he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne.”

Jesus on his return as the land (Leland), “took the scroll” [out of] the hand of him who was seated on the throne,” the guardian, Mason Remey. Thus, the authority that the guardian, Mason Remey had was taken out of his hands by the return of Jesus. That is, Mason Remey was trying to reestablish the executive branch (that the Covenant-breakers threw out) back into the Baha'i faith, which only the return of Jesus could do. The truth of the Covenant is now being reestablished among a whole new contingent of Baha'is.

8 “And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints;”

The four beast countries, England, France, the United States, and Russia, become the first Baha'i nations through the explanations of Leland the Lamb.

9 “and they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation,

10 and hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth.’”

The “new song” is the explanations and commentaries like those found in this book. “Priests” means teachers. And “they shall reign on earth” refers to the Baha'i administration (the true Baha'i administration set up by Shoghi Effendi but abolished by the “Hands”), that the Lamb reestablishes.

11 “Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!’”

Jesus was the “Lamb who was slain” and he returns as Jesus the Lamb with seven horns and seven eyes. As you can see he is the only person on earth that can accurately explain all the verses in this book of Revelation, as he revealed it. Jesus promised salvation to those who believe in him on both his first and second coming. He has now descended from heaven on the clouds of the indoctrinations of both the Christian clergy and the Arch Covenant-breakers of the Baha'i faith.

13 “And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying, ‘To him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might for ever and ever!’”

This will come only after the miscreants and wrongdoers are punished and destroyed in the hell’s fire of the oncoming thermonuclear war (Rev. 22:12).

14 “And the four living creatures said, ‘Amen!’ and the elders fell down and worshiped.”
