Prayer For America

O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to Thee. These hearts are radiant with Thy love. These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings. O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious. Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world. O God! This American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy. Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal.

It has never been our hope that the prophecies for disaster should be fulfilled, but rather that people—freed from the clutter that fills their minds—would see the truth for themselves and would therefore look to the real cause and source for these difficulties and remedy the situation at the root and core of the problem, which we have always believed is a spiritual problem needing a spiritual solution. Most people really, quite frankly, have no concept even as to whether or not life has a purpose. Without a purpose, life would have no value and be meaningless. This fundamental lack of understanding of the real purpose and true value of human life, it will be found, is the real Cause that leads to all the multiple and diverse problems inflicting the world at this time.

Baha’i Month: Izzat/Might 1, 177 B.E. (9/8/2020)

Saturday, September 12th, 2020
THE world’s equilibrium hath been upset through the vibrating influence of this most great, this new World Order. Mankind’s ordered life hath been revolutionized through the agency of this unique, this wondrous System—the like of which mortal eyes have never witnessed.
Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths. Take heed that ye do not vacillate in your determination to embrace the truth of this Cause—a Cause through which the potentialities of the might of God have been revealed, and His sovereignty established. With faces beaming with joy, hasten ye unto Him. This is the changeless Faith of God, eternal in the past, eternal in the future. Let him that seeketh, attain it; and as to him that hath refused to seek it—verily, God is Self-Sufficient, above any need of His creatures.
Say: This is the infallible Balance which the Hand of God is holding, in which all who are in the heavens and all who are on the earth are weighed, and their fate determined, if ye be of them that believe and recognize this truth. Say: Through it the poor have been enriched, the learned enlightened, and the seekers enabled to ascend unto the presence of God. Beware, lest ye make it a cause of dissension amongst you. Be ye as firmly settled as the immovable mountain in the Cause of your Lord, the Mighty, the Loving.

THE MOST MIGHTY DOCUMENT

by Dr. Leland Jensen

An official Rendition by the Promised 7th Angel, who fulfills Biblical Prophecies, explained by ‘Abdu’l-Baha as recorded in Some Answered Questions, also prophesied to come under different titles, such as “Blessed is He” who comes in 1963, explained by ‘Abdu’l-Baha as recorded in Baha’u’llah and the New Era, the knight on the white horse, the Lamb, The Land, the return of Jesus the High Priest and by various names and titles as found in all Revelations of the Divine Manifestations.

THE BEAST

by Dr. Leland Jensen

PROPHECY IS FULFILLED BUT EXPECTATIONS ARE NOT! Jesus has just returned! He has come a second time, and already a number of the dead in Christ have resurrected out of their graves and have met him in the air, the air is down here on earth, the higher up you go the less air there is. This is just like it says in the Bible. He has “descended from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God” (I Thess. 4:16). Those that have been left alive are about to join them and meet him in the air (I Thess. 4:17). Their number will increase until they comprise the 144,000 of Revelation, chapters 7 and 14, of whom will be the elect of Matt 24:22. Then the bombs will drop! The multitude will not resurrect until the bombs drop on their churches (tombs) destroying them. “These are they who” will “have come out of great tribulation”–the four winds of destruction–(Rev. 7:14). Within a short time the four great waves of destruction, that will come one succeeding the other, will be over. Before this happens “every eye will see him” (Rev. 1:7), and every head will bow before the Throne, the Guardianship of the living Davidic King (Rev. 7:9-12). This will comprise those that are left, that had not been taken by the great catastrophe. He is now here upon the earth alive breathing air, not up in the sky where there is not any air. MOST OF THE CHRISTIANS WILL MISS THE RAPTURE before the bombs drop on their cities because they are so dead in the theologies (clouds of heaven) of their church that they will not be able to see him on his return until they have become purified by the fire of the oncoming thermonuclear holocaust, or one of the other succeeding waves to the great tribulation. As a cloud in the sky veils the light of the sun, so a cloud of heaven veils the light of Jesus on his return. Because of these theologies the Christians–the dead in Christ–believe that Jesus resurrected up into the sky, and that when he returns the rapture will take place in the sky, yet no place in the scriptures does it say this…. So it is today. The Christians have their eyes glued to the sky. They don’t know the difference between the sky and heaven because they have not partaken of the Life-Giving Spirit. Because the scriptures state that Jesus ascended up into heaven they imagine that he ascended up into the sky, and when he returns will come streaking across the sky and the believers will ascend up into the sky to meet him. Therefore, they do not want, and are in opposition to, the Promised Ones, that descended out of heaven, sent to them by God, that were Promised in the Holy Scriptures. They are asleep in their graves (their apostate churches)–spiritually dead–and the masses won’t resurrect until the thermonuclear bombs drop on their tombs (their churches) and opens them so they can come out. And then it may be too late for most of them. BUPC.ORG/UHJ.NET

The Beast: Is About to Be Dead

*******

THE CHILD OF THE EAST

by Dr. Leland Jensen

Nothing has captured the imagination and conjecture of the people more than that of the Apocalypse, as this is found in all the holy books of the world. The Christians are awaiting the advent of the Antichrist and the Beast which is to precede the return of Jesus Christ and Armageddon. Here, for the first time, Dr. Leland Jensen brings to life the amazing visions of Jeane Dixon, adding an entire New Dimension to this subject and revealing the fulfillment Jeane’s most outstanding vision: “THE CHILD OF THE EAST.” In A Gift of Prophecy it states: “Visions which come to Mrs. Dixon are unchangeable, because they represent the will of God. The coming event cannot, consequently, be prevented” (p. 155). Therefore, the reading public is waiting for the fulfillment of these visions. In this book, for the first time, “THE CHILD OF THE EAST” has been definitely identified. Jeane states that: “The world as we know it will be reshaped and revamped into one without wars or suffering… he will bring together all mankind in one all-embracing faith. This will be the foundation of a new Christianity, with every sect and creed united through this man who will walk among the people to spread the wisdom of the Almighty Power” (A Gift of Prophecy, pp. 171, 172). This book represents not only his amazing credentials, but gives his interpretations of some of Jeane’s other visions such as the Snake and her two visions that she had in St. Matthew’s Cathedral. Also by using Jeane Dixon’s Criteria, he definitely identifies the Antichrist and slays him with the sword of his mouth. He also exposes the Beast and Dragon prophesied to come in the Book of Revelation. This is all backed up by the most realistic and accurate proofs. The Bible and the Great Pyramid come alive and become clear as crystal. This will excite the reader to new horizons, especially what “THE CHILD OF THE EAST.” has to say of what is to take place next! He will become the most talked about person in the world and what he has to say will be of the most discussed subjects. It will be a common conversational piece. Everyone will get in on the act; no one will be able to remain neutral. Everyone will take sides, either for or against. As the events that “THE CHILD OF THE EAST” has predicted take place just exactly as he stated, ultimately everyone in the world will become a believer; there will be mass conversion. “Attempting to describe her own sensation, Jeane says: “I felt suspended and enfolded, as if I were surrounded by whipped cream. For the first time I understood the full meaning of the Biblical phrase, ‘My cup runneth over.’ I loved all mankind. I felt that I would never again need food or sleep, because I had experienced perfect peace” (A Gift of Prophecy, p. 172). It will be just like Jeane said. Read this book and find out for yourself.

Twin Holy Days-The Birth of The Bab & The Birth of Baha’u’llah-Asma/Names 1 & 2, 177 B.E. (8/20 & 21/2020)

Thursday, August 20th, 2020

Today, Thursday 20th August is the Islamic New Year based on the Ummul Qura system and according to Islamic Relief UK. Although, according to many Muslims the exact date will have to be determined by an actual moon sighting so it may vary from this by a day.

The Islamic year begins with the month of Muharram which holds special significance for the Muslims, particularly the 10th Muharram. Sunni Muslims fast on that day believing that this was the day God delivered Moses and his people from Pharaoh whereas Shiah Muslims mourn the martyrdom of Imam Husain, the prophet’s grandson, which occurred on that day in the Islamic year 680 AH.

For Baha’is, the the first two days of Muharram are holy as they are the days of the Birth of the Bab and Baha’u’llah. The Bab’s birthday was on the first day of the month of Muharram and Baha’u’llah’s birthday on the second day of the same month although they were born two years apart, the Bab in 1819 and Baha’u’llah in 1817.

*****

The Báb was a young merchant of the Pure Lineage. He was born in the year one thousand two hundred and thirty-five [A.H.] on the first day of Muharram, 1 and when after a few years His father Siyyid Muḥammad-Riḍá died, He was brought up in Shíráz in the arms of His maternal uncle Mírzá Siyyid ‘Alí the merchant. On attaining maturity He engaged in trade in Búshihr, first in partnership with His maternal uncle and afterwards independently. On account of what was observed in Him He was noted for godliness, devoutness, virtue, and piety, and was regarded in the sight of men as so characterized.

Abdu’l-Baha’, A Traveler’s Narrative, pg. 4

*********

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7

*********

And BAHA’U’LLAH shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see Him together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

Isaiah 40:5

Arise, shine; for thy BAHA is come, and BAHA’U’LLAH is risen upon thee.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his BAHA shall be seen upon thee.

And the Gentiles shall come to thy BAHA, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Isaiah 60:1-3

*********

Praise be to Him through Whose splendours [Ishraqat] the earth and the heavens are aglow, through Whose fragrant breathings the gardens of holiness that adorn the hearts of the chosen are trembling for joy, to Him Who hath shed His light [BAHA] and brightened the face of the firmament. Verily there appeared luminous and sparkling stars, glittering, shining out, and casting forth their rays upon the supreme horizon. They derived their grace and brilliance from the bounties of the ABHA Realm, then, stars of guidance, they poured down their lights upon this earth.

Praise be to Him Who hath fashioned this new era, this age of majesty, even as an unfolding pageant where the realities of all things can be exposed to view. Now are clouds of bounty raining down and the gifts of the loving Lord are clearly manifest; for both the seen and the unseen worlds have been illumined, and the Promised One hath come to earth and the beauty of the Adored One hath shone forth.

Salutations, blessings, and welcome to that Universal Reality, that Perfect Word, that Manifest Book, that Splendor [BAHA] which hath dawned in the highest heaven, that Guide of all nations, that Light [BAHA] of the world–the billowing ocean of Whose abounding grace hath flooded all creation, in such wise that the waves thereof have cast upon the sands of this visible world their shining pearls. Now hath the Truth appeared, and falsehood fled away; now hath the day dawned and jubilation taken over, wherefore men’s souls are sanctified, their spirits purged, their hearts rejoiced, their minds purified, their secret thoughts made wholesome, their consciences washed clean, their inmost selves made holy: for the Day of Resurrection hath come to pass, and the bestowals of thy Lord, the Forgiving, have encompassed all things. Salutations and praise be unto those luminous, resplendent stars that are shedding down their rays from the highest heaven, those celestial bodies of the girdling zodiac of the ABHA Realm. May Glory [BAHA] rest upon them.

Jesus The High Priest Upon His Return Reading The Prayer For The Cementing Of The Hearts Of All Humanity Revealed By The Messiah Baha’u’llah Through His Son Abdu’l-Baha’

 

THE RETURN OF JESUS,
THE HIGH PRIEST,
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEC

“Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.”

Dan. 12:12

In the last two verses of the Book of Daniel occur the cryptic words—”Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of Days [we are in the end of days now].”

Many have been the attempts of learned students to solve the problem of the significance of these words. In a tabletalk at which the writer [Esslemont] was present, ‘Abdu’l-Baha reckoned the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy from the date of the beginning of the Muhammadan era [the victory of Muhammad over Mecca in 628 AD—628 + 1335 = 1963].

‘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 [April 21st] 1963:—

Now concerning the verse in Daniel, the interpretation whereof thou didst ask, namely, “Blessed is he who cometh unto the thousand, three hundred and thirty-five days.” These days must be reckoned as solar and not lunar years. For according to this calculation a century will have elapsed from the dawn of the Sun of Truth, then will the teachings of God be firmly established [by Blessed is he] upon the earth, and the Divine Light shall flood the world from the East even unto the West. Then, on this day, will the faithful rejoice! (J.E. Esslemont author of Baha’u’llah and the New Era on pages 249-250 of the 1970 Edition.)

On April 21st, 1963 the return of Jesus began his ministry by being opposed by Satan (Rex King) who was designated Satan by the Davidic King who was ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s son.

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.”

Rev. 11:15

The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise with heavenly qualities and character. Voices will be raised, so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and diffused. In the day of the manifestation of the Lord of Hosts, and at the epoch of the divine cycle of the Omnipotent which is promised and mentioned in all the books and writings of the Prophets—in that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established, and the world will be renewed; a new spirit will be breathed into the body of creation; the season of the divine spring will come; the clouds of mercy will rain; the sun of reality will shine; the life-giving breeze will blow; the world of humanity will wear a new garment; the surface of the earth will be a sublime paradise; mankind will be educated; wars, disputes, quarrels and malignity will disappear; and truthfulness, righteousness, peace and the worship of God will appear; union, love and brotherhood will surround the world; and God will rule for evermore—meaning that the Spiritual and Everlasting Kingdom will be established. Such is the day of God. For all the days which have come and gone were the days of Abraham, Moses and Christ, or of the other Prophets; but this day is the day of God, for the Sun of Reality will arise in it with the utmost warmth and splendor.

Holy Day: The Ascension Of The Establisher Of The Baha’i Faith 8/6/1996-Kamal 6, 177 B.E.(8/6/2020)

Thursday, August 6th, 2020

Dr. Leland Jensen was the supreme defender of the Covenant in both it’s Greater and lesser aspects. He was promised in the religious scriptures and oral teachings of all people everywhere on the planet and prophesied by the prophets of all cultures for the entirety of the six thousand year Adamic Cycle. But for his purity of heart and firmness in the Covenant and by his mandate from God to protect, defend and teach the Covenant to the world and establish it firmly in this land (the prophesied New JerUSAlem in the U.S.A.) we who’ve gathered under the Banner of the Most Great Name would still be wandering in the spiritual wilderness not knowing where to find the truth we have sought. Thank God for sending His Son to the world a second time to re-gather the elect unto the presence of Baha’u’llah under the Provisions of His everlasting Covenant!

Ya Allah El-Mustaghath!

Baha’i Month: Kamal/Perfection 1, 177 B.E. (8/1/2020)

Abdu’l-Baha’

5 August 1912

Talk at Dublin Inn
Dublin, New Hampshire

The people of Christianity have clung to literal interpretation of the statement in the Gospel that Christ came from heaven. The Jews, likewise, at the time of His manifestation held to outward and visible expectation of the fulfillment of the prophecies. They said, “The Messiah shall appear from heaven. This man came from Nazareth; we know his house; we know his parents and people. It is only hearsay that he descended from heaven; this cannot be proved.”

The text of the Gospel states that He came from heaven although physically born of the mother. The meaning is that the divine reality of Christ was from heaven, but the body was born of Mary. Therefore, He came according to the prophecies of the Holy Book and, likewise, according to natural law—His reality from heaven, His body earthly. As He came before, so must He come this time in the same way. But some arise with objections, saying, “We must have literal proof of this through the senses.”

The reality of Christ was always in heaven and will always be. This is the intention of the text of the Gospel. For while Jesus Christ walked upon the earth, He said, “The Son of Man is in heaven.” Therefore, holding to literal interpretation and visible fulfillment of the text of the Holy Books is simply imitation of ancestral forms and beliefs; for when we perceive the reality of Christ, these texts and statements become clear and perfectly reconcilable with each other. Unless we perceive reality, we cannot understand the meanings of the Holy Books, for these meanings are symbolical and spiritual—such as, for instance, the raising of Lazarus, which has spiritual interpretation. We must first establish the fact that the power of God is infinite, unlimited, and that it is within that power to accomplish anything.

Second, we must understand the interpretation of Christ’s words concerning the dead. A certain disciple came to Christ and asked permission to go and bury his father. He answered, “Let the dead bury their dead.” Therefore, Christ designated as dead some who were still living—that is, let the living dead, the spiritually dead, bury your father. They were dead because they were not believers in Christ. Although physically alive, they were dead spiritually. This is the meaning of Christ’s words, “That which is born of flesh is flesh; and that which is born of Spirit is spirit.” He meant that those who were simply born of the human body were dead spiritually, while those quickened by the breaths of the Holy Spirit were living and eternally alive. These are the interpretations of Christ Himself. Reflect upon them, and the meanings of the Holy Books will become clear as the sun at midday.

The Holy Books have their special terminologies which must be known and understood. Physicians have their own peculiar terms; architects, philosophers have their characteristic expressions; poets have their phrases; and scientists, their nomenclature. In the scripture we read that Zion is dancing. It is evident that this has other than literal interpretation. The meaning is that the people of Zion shall rejoice. The Jews said Christ was not the Messiah but Antichrist, because one of the signs of the Messiah’s coming was the dancing of Mount Zion, which had not yet come to pass. In reality, when Christ appeared, not only Mount Zion but all Palestine danced and rejoiced. Again in scriptures it is said, “The trees of the field shall clap their hands.” This is symbolical. There are terms and expressions of usage in every language which cannot be taken literally. For instance, in oriental countries it is customary to say, “When my friend entered the house, the doors and walls began to sing and dance.” In Persia they say, “Get at the head,” meaning engage in the matter according to its own terms and usages. All these have other and inner meanings.

You have asked concerning approval of Christian Science treatment and healing. Spirit has influence; prayer has spiritual effect. Therefore, we pray, “O God! Heal this sick one!” Perchance God will answer. Does it matter who prays? God will answer the prayer of every servant if that prayer is urgent. His mercy is vast, illimitable. He answers the prayers of all His servants. He answers the prayer of this plant. The plant prays potentially, “O God! Send me rain!” God answers the prayer, and the plant grows. God will answer anyone. He answers prayers potentially. Before we were born into this world did we not pray, “O God! Give me a mother; give me two fountains of bright milk; purify the air for my breathing; grant me rest and comfort; prepare food for my sustenance and living”? Did we not pray potentially for these needed blessings before we were created? When we came into this world, did we not find our prayers answered? Did we not find mother, father, food, light, home and every other necessity and blessing, although we did not actually ask for them? Therefore, it is natural that God will give to us when we ask Him. His mercy is all-encircling.

But we ask for things which the divine wisdom does not desire for us, and there is no answer to our prayer. His wisdom does not sanction what we wish. We pray, “O God! Make me wealthy!” If this prayer were universally answered, human affairs would be at a standstill. There would be none left to work in the streets, none to till the soil, none to build, none to run the trains. Therefore, it is evident that it would not be well for us if all prayers were answered. The affairs of the world would be interfered with, energies crippled and progress hindered. But whatever we ask for which is in accord with divine wisdom, God will answer. Assuredly!

For instance, a very feeble patient may ask the doctor to give him food which would be positively dangerous to his life and condition. He may beg for roast meat. The doctor is kind and wise. He knows it would be dangerous to his patient so he refuses to allow it. The doctor is merciful; the patient, ignorant. Through the doctor’s kindness the patient recovers; his life is saved. Yet the patient may cry out that the doctor is unkind, not good, because he refuses to answer his pleading.

God is merciful. In His mercy He answers the prayers of all His servants when according to His supreme wisdom it is necessary.

Commentary

A. 2/2/16: “Three horns” uprooted (3 drop out) at GOP Primary by “little horn.” 1260 days later “court sits in judgment” (congress) censures “Little horn” for “racist” talk against the Squad (7/16/19 ) then rules to postpone impeachment (7/17/19).

B. 3/9/16: First outbreak of violence at “little horn” Rally. 1260 days later “little horn” announces that he is the “chosen one” (8/21/19).

C. 7/6/16: Star of King David Tweet by “little horn” sparks social “firestorm.” 1260 days later “court sits in judgment” (congress): “little horn” is impeached (12/18/19).

D. 7/22/16: “little horn” receives GOP nomination. 1260 days later “little horn” bombs Baghdad kills major general Qasem Soleimani of Iran (1/3/20); “court sits in judgement” (congress) about limiting the War Powers Act for POTUS “little horn.”

E. 12/19/16: Electoral College votes in “little horn” after several electorates cast their vote against “little horn” in opposition to their constituents. 1260 days later from the White House Rose Garden “little horn” invokes “insurrection act,” militarizes Washington, D.C., occupying the city with Federal Troops (6/1/20), and then marches that same day with military force and a “dominate the streets” escort up to the COVID-19 shut down and riot proofed boarded-up church of St. John’s to pose for his “infamous” Bible photo-op amid worldwide global marches for world justice and world peace in the wake of the murderous racist lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis, MN near the same spot where Dr. Jensen announced the Kingdom of God in America in his 1986 projection entitled the “Gathering Storm!” While speaking to the press, and holding a Bible in his hands, the screams of the demonstrators can be heard in the background along with the blasts of police munitions and grenades shot into the crowd that are so loud that the voice of “little horn” is knocked out and periodically interrupted from the audio of the broadcast. A freak lightening storm then strikes the Capital City and top of the Washington monument as the St. John’s plaza is officially renamed ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza.’

F. 1/4-7/16: CIA, FBI, NSA agree Russia’s Putin tried to ‘help’ “little horn’s” ‘election chances;’ while “little horn” calls for closer relationship with U.S. and Russia. 1260 days later ends the 90 days period from the Vernal Equinox of 2020, when the “trumpet” was sounded in the Naw Ruz Video announcement followed by an earthquake knocking the golden trumpet out of the angel Moroni’s hand in Salt Lake City; bringing us to the Jewish Festival of Shavuat: (Pentecost or ‘the feast of weeks’) 49 days from the weighing of the omer of manna from heaven placed in the golden pot within the Arc of the Covenant. Shavuat is a harvest festival celebration commemorating God’s provision for and sustenance of His people. The festival is three days and culminates on the Summer Solstice that is midsummer night’s eve (6/19/20). Also the season for the anniversary of the martyrdom of the purest Branch. “Little horn” launches tour from Tulsa, OK: cite of the Juneteenth massacre of over 300 innocent people of “Black Wall Street.”

G. 1/20/16 “little horn” inaugurated POTUS-45. 1260 days later comet NEOWISE reaches perihelion and a massive explosion hits Iran’s largest nuclear enrichment facility in the city of Natanz. Trump occupies Portland, OR with Federal Troops. Background:

The United States of America swear in “little horn” upon the Abraham Lincoln Bible making “little horn” the 45th POTUS: M=40; A=1; G=3; A=1 = a total of 45: worn on the foreheads of their hats. 1260 days later brings us to July 4, 2020 the anniversary of the birth of the United States “400 years” (Gen. 15:13) from the date given upon Plymouth Rock (1620 + 400 = 2020). July 4, is the day that the Muslims took Jerusalem away from the Western Crusader Kingdom by the hand of Saladin. On, Saturday, June 6, 2020 (the ninth day of the reading of the Kitab-i- ‘Ahd) Jews, Palestinians, Christians, Muslims and Arabs marched hand in hand in a Prayer- based Justice-rally in firm protest against the planned annexation of Jerusalem and the West bank set by Netanyahu and his hard-liners for July.

July 4: “Little Horn” gives speech from Mt. Rushmore sacred site named “The Six Grandfathers” by the Lakota people corresponding to Black Elk prophecy of the “seven sacred elders” where Black Elk was the 7th standing in front of the 6. There are exactly 1260 days from January 24, 2017 the exact day that “little horn” ordered the US Army to go against the water-protecting people until July 6, 2020 when the Federal District Court “sat in judgment” and ruled against “little horn” commanding that the Dakota Access Pipeline (“black snake”) be immediately shut down.

Meanwhile, Israel and the US have been accused of systematically striking Iran in a series of terrorist and covert milittary strikes and completely crippling the Iran nuclear project in preparation for the ANNEXATION during this entire prophesied timeline. The proposed annexation (see map figure 1) shows that Israel would completely secure its own borders from all the other neighboring Arab peoples by completely surrounding the Palestine territories–only if they grab the Jordan Valley West bank to directly border Jordan–which they would need to do to fully secure the TEMPLE MOUNT in order to rebuild their Temple on top of, or south of, the Mosque of Omar the “Dome of the Rock.”

Here are the FACTS:

“In June and July, a series of explosions targeted Iran’s nuclear and missile programs and various other infrastructure… the Natanz nuclear facility on 2 July, the Shahid Medhaj power plant (Zargan) in Ahvaz and the Karun petrochemical center in the city of Mahshahr on 4 July. It has been speculated that Israel was involved, and the damage at the centrifuge plant in Natanz alone could delay the Iranian nuclear weapons program by one or two years, according to intelligence officials.” (Retrieved from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Israel _proxy_conflict#Cyberwarfare _and_sabotage_2020)

The New York Times claimed that a source which it identified as a “Middle Eastern intelligence official with knowledge of the episode” told the newspaper that Israel was responsible for the attack, and that a powerful bomb had been used. In addition, it cited an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps member who was briefed on the topic and had spoken to the newspaper anonymously as claiming that an explosive device was used.[22] The New York Times later reported that officials with knowledge of the blast had told it that it was most likely the result of a bomb planted at the facility, possibly at a strategic gas line, but that it was not out of the question that a cyberattack was used to cause the explosion.

Mabus then will soon die, there will come
Of people and beasts a horrible rout:
Then suddenly one will see vengeance, Hundred, hand, thirst, hunger when the comet shall run. –Nostradamus (Q. 2:62)

Comet NEOWISE–which hasn’t been seen for approximately seven thousand years (i.e. at the fall of Atlantis) and will not be seen again for about another 7000 years–reached perihelion on July 3, and perigee on July 22 and will be seen throughout the rest of August. This is the First Year of the HOPI 7 YEARS PURIFICATION. The year of clear vision.

“Though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel,
there I will hunt them down and seize them.”
“The LORD’s voice will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem! The lush pastures of the shepherds will dry up;
the grass on Mount Carmel will wither and die.”
(Amos 9:3, 1:2 NIV, NLT)

Talk at Home of Dr. and Mrs. Florian Krug
830 Park Avenue, New York

By

Abdu’l-Baha’

I am greatly pleased to see you. Your hearts are illumined by the lights of Bahá. This meeting is in reality a divine, celestial assembly under the favor of God, for we have no other purpose than praising and meeting God. The prayer you have just offered is a prayer of thankfulness.

Thankfulness is of various kinds. There is a verbal thanksgiving which is confined to a mere utterance of gratitude. This is of no importance because perchance the tongue may give thanks while the heart is unaware of it. Many who offer thanks to God are of this type, their spirits and hearts unconscious of thanksgiving. This is mere usage, just as when we meet, receive a gift and say thank you, speaking the words without significance. One may say thank you a thousand times while the heart remains thankless, ungrateful. Therefore, mere verbal thanksgiving is without effect. But real thankfulness is a cordial giving of thanks from the heart. When man in response to the favors of God manifests susceptibilities of conscience, the heart is happy, the spirit is exhilarated. These spiritual susceptibilities are ideal thanksgiving.

There is a cordial thanksgiving, too, which expresses itself in the deeds and actions of man when his heart is filled with gratitude. For example, God has conferred upon man the gift of guidance, and in thankfulness for this great gift certain deeds must emanate from him. To express his gratitude for the favors of God man must show forth praiseworthy actions. In response to these bestowals he must render good deeds, be self-sacrificing, loving the servants of God, forfeiting even life for them, showing kindness to all the creatures. He must be severed from the world, attracted to the Kingdom of Abhá, the face radiant, the tongue eloquent, the ear attentive, striving day and night to attain the good pleasure of God. Whatsoever he wishes to do must be in harmony with the good pleasure of God. He must observe and see what is the will of God and act accordingly. There can be no doubt that such commendable deeds are thankfulness for the favors of God.

Consider how grateful anyone becomes when healed from sickness, when treated kindly by another or when a service is rendered by another, even though it may be of the least consequence. If we forget such favors, it is an evidence of ingratitude. Then it will be said a loving-kindness has been done, but we are thankless, not appreciating this love and favor. Physically and spiritually we are submerged in the sea of God’s favor. He has provided our foods, drink and other requirements; His favors encompass us from all directions. The sustenances provided for man are blessings. Sight, hearing and all his faculties are wonderful gifts. These blessings are innumerable; no matter how many are mentioned, they are still endless. Spiritual blessings are likewise endless—spirit, consciousness, thought, memory, perception, ideation and other endowments. By these He has guided us, and we enter His Kingdom. He has opened the doors of all good before our faces. He has vouchsafed eternal glory. He has summoned us to the Kingdom of heaven. He has enriched us by the bestowals of God. Every day he has proclaimed new glad tidings. Every hour fresh bounties descend.

Consider how all the people are asleep, and ye are awake. They are dead, and ye are alive through the breaths of the Holy Spirit. They are blind while ye are endowed with perceptive sight. They are deprived of the love of God, but in your hearts it exists and is glowing. Consider these bestowals and favors.

Therefore, in thanksgiving for them ye must act in accordance with the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. Ye must read the Tablets—the Hidden Words, Ishráqát, Glad Tidings—all the holy utterances, and act according to them. This is real thanksgiving, to live in accord with these utterances. This is true thankfulness and the divine bestowal. This is thanksgiving and glorification of God.

I hope you all may attain thereto, be mindful of these favors of God and be attentive. It is my hope that I may go away from New York with a happy heart, and my heart is happy when the friends of God love each other, when they manifest the mercy of God to all people. If I see this, I shall go away happy.

Salutations!
