This book gives the answers of a great World Teacher to numerous questions which deeply trouble modern man in this post-modern Age of Transition. First published in London in 1908, Some Answered Questions is as timely now as it was then; the need for it has grown more acute with the years. The many questions which it considers remain either unanswered or misunderstood in the minds of the mass of humanity.
What is man? Is there a God? How can we know God? What of the Reality of the Unseen? Miracles, prophecy, predestination, immortality, free will, reincarnation, baptism, the Trinity, healing? Here, too, are commentaries on and explanations of Biblical passages and the metaphysical underpinnings of scientific worldviews suited to our age of increasing maturity.
Some Answered Questions is intended for the searcher with an open and independent mind. The answers are unorthodox. Religion and Spirituality, stripped of ritualism and tradition, become reasonable and alive. If the search for truth is coupled with a dream of justice for all and a world at peace, if the student is willing to receive an idea by which he or she may live meaningfully both for true-self and for others, then here you will find an authentic challenge to match that dream.
This is the original 1908 translation that preserves the prophecy of the coming of the “7th Angel” made by ‘Abdu’l-Baha in this volume (p. 66) in 1908 and approved by Him. Contrary to the Covenant-breakers assertions, Some Answered Questions is NOT “pilgrim’s notes”–but forms a collection of talks in the authenticity of the written Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Baha approved and corrected by Him (with His own hand during His lifetime) in the potency of genuine Baha’i Holy Writ:
“Baha’u’llah has made it clear enough that only those things that have been revealed in the form of Tablets have a binding power over the friends… Those talks of the Master that were later reviewed by Him, corrected or in some other form considered authentic by Himself, such as Some Answered Questions, are considered as Tablets and therefore have the necessary binding power” (Shoghi Effendi, to the United States Publishing Committee, December 29, 1931).
This original re-print edition of Some Answered Questions combats the various changed false-text corrupted “editions” of the Covenant-breakers and contains a unique preface written by Dr. Leland Jensen and updated for current times along with a New Appendix including the Tablet of the Dichotomy and ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s the Tablet of Wood, Iron and Gold. The perfect teaching text (and required reading: the first 90 pages) for the full experience of the Baha’i Fireside series.
COVENANT-BREAKING “BAHA’IS” CORRUPT THEIR OWN HOLY BOOKS!
VIOLATORS OF THE COVENANT ERASE: “SEVENTH ANGEL PROPHECY”!!
It has come to our attention that ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s prophecy of the coming of the “Seventh Angel” has been removed by the Covenant-breakers from their “new” 2015 edition of Some Answered Questions (SAQ). The original 1908 text that we continue to publish reads:
“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.” The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise with heavenly qualities and character. (‘Abdu’l-Baha, SAQ Original 1908 text)
The Covenant-breakers have changed this to:
“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.” That angel refers to human souls who have been endowed with heavenly attributes and invested with an angelic nature and disposition.
What VIOLATION could be clearer than this?
The date for the coming of the “Seventh Angel… a man… who will arise…” is given by ‘Abdu’l-Baha as the year 1963 AD in the book Baha’u’llah and the New Era, chapter “Prophecies of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha” subsection “The Coming of the Kingdom of God.” Here ‘Abdu’l-Baha explains that there are to be 1335 prophesied years (as given by Daniel in chapter 12 of the Holy Bible) added to the Victory of Muhammad in 628 A.D. that brings us to 1963 A.D. the date for the advent of the promised 7th Angel who will “establish the Kingdom” (628 + 1335 years = 1963).
The removal of this prophecy by the Covenant-breakers really only calls more attention to the fact that this prophecy is fulfilled by Dr. Leland Jensen. In fact no one else in history has ever even claimed to be the Seventh Angel other than Dr. Leland Jensen. The prophecy sates that this “angel” will actually be a “man.” That is a real living human being. He will arise with “heavenly qualities and character,” and he will “establish the Kingdom.” Due to the fact that the “Hands” did away with the Kingship of King David through Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha from the Baha’i faith (or their own isolated corrupted version of it) we see that Dr. Jensen is the only one who stood up against this while it was happening during the years 1957-1963. Even when the rest of the followers of ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s son started claiming rival false “guardianships” only Dr. Leland Jensen kept defending and proclaiming the Covenant of the Davidic Kingship and throne of King David continued as the presidency and “executive” branch (W&T, p. 15) of the authentic Universal House of Justice of Baha’u’llah (www.UHJ.net). Only Dr. Leland Jensen fulfills all these real life deeds and accomplishments and he and he alone explained that he fulfilled the prophecy of ‘Abdu’l-Baha in SAQ for the “Seventh Angel.” As that date of 1963 has come and gone–no one else ever will.
As we have absolutely demonstrated that Dr. Leland Jensen fulfills these prophecies for the one to arise in 1963 AD, the “Seventh Angel” the Covenant-breakers have had no other recourse than to expunge this prophecy of the Seventh Angel “a man… who will arise [in 1963]” from the Baha’i religious holy texts. They have done this to try to COVER-UP their violation but instead this has backfired as it only calls more attention to the Seventh Angel prophecy!
This glaring violation of the holy writings–shows that our progress (www.BUPC.org) in teaching this faith has progressed to such a point that the majority of people are becoming wise to the fact that the “Hands” have violated the Covenant and that God has sent a promised one, someone who is not a guardian of the Baha’i faith, but an establisher: like Ali the 5th angel and Quddus the 6th angel–that ‘Abdu’l-Baha also explains–now a 7th angel, the establisher of the Baha’i Faith, Dr. Leland Jensen.
Further these Covenant breakers have removed the very “Kingdom” from this same passage and have added their own false interpolations: as it is the very Kingdom of God–that is of the Kingship of King David–that is to be established.
The original reads: “in that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established” and they have changed this to: “in this Day of God His divine and spiritual sovereignty will be established.”
Thus they have attempted to fool the people away from the Kingdom of God with the living Davidic Kingship as the president of Baha’u’llah’s true UHJ (www.UHJ.net). They have done this further corruption of the texts knowingly and purposefully because so many people today are waking up to the reality that Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha are seated upon the throne of King David that is to last for ever; and realizing that the whole Baha’i world went astray when they broke the Covenant and separated themselves from ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s son, grandson and great-grandson who is seated upon the throne of David today. The entire Baha’i World went astray except for Drs. Leland Jensen and his wife Opal, the last remaining two Knights of Baha’u’llah who alone remained firm in Baha’u’llah’s Covenant. Dr. Leland Jensen is the establisher of the Baha’i Faith, the “7th Angel” and the educator of the current living guardian seated upon the throne of David alive in the world today.
This bad move on the part of the mainstream sans-guardian Covenant-breaking outfit only serves to call more attention to the “Seventh Angel Prophecy” for those who remain watchful and awake. The rest of the masses of the people are now further poised to fall into the darkness of more grievous error as they read texts that are altered and changed deliberately to keep them imprisoned in the darkness of the lies of these glaring Covenant-breakers who only masquerade as “Baha’is” foisting corrupted Copies of the original full passages.
“And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person’s share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book.” (The Book of Revelation 22:18-19 NLT)

ORIGINAL 1908 SAQ Which was Read, Corrected, and Authorized by Abdu’l-Baha’
“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.”
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.

2015 CORRUPTED TEXT
“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.”
That angel refers to human souls who have been endowed with heavenly attributes and invested with an angelic nature and disposition. Voices will be lifted up and the appearance of the divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and noised abroad. It will be announced that this day is the day of the advent of the Lord of Hosts and this Dispensation the merciful Dispensation of the Divine Providence. It has been promised and recorded in all the sacred books and scriptures that in this Day of God His divine and spiritual sovereignty will be established; the world will be renewed; a fresh spirit will be breathed into the body of creation; the divine springtime will be ushered in; the clouds of mercy will rain down; the Sun of Truth will shine forth; the life-giving breezes will blow: the world of humanity will be arrayed in a new garment; the face of the earth will become even as the highest paradise; humanity will be educated; war, dissension, strife and contention will vanish; truthfulness, uprightness, peace and godliness will prevail; love, concord and union will encompass the world; and God will rule forevermore — that is, a spiritual and everlasting sovereignty will be established. Such is the Day of God. For all the days which have come and gone were the days of Abraham, Moses, Christ, or of the other Prophets, but this day is the Day of God, inasmuch as the Sun of Truth will shine forth therein with the utmost intensity and radiance. (Covenant-breaker’s 2015 Interpolations)
Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! I yield Thee thanks for having enabled me to recognize the Manifestation of Thyself, and for having severed me from Thine enemies, and laid bare before mine eyes their misdeeds and wicked works in Thy days, and for having rid me of all attachment to them, and caused me to turn wholly towards Thy grace and bountiful favors. I give Thee thanks, also, for having sent down upon me from the clouds of Thy will that which hath so sanctified me from the hints of the infidels and the allusions of the misbelievers that I have fixed my heart firmly on Thee, and fled from such as have denied the light of Thy countenance. Again I thank Thee for having empowered me to be steadfast in Thy love, and to speak forth Thy praise and to extol Thy virtues, and for having given me to drink of the cup of Thy mercy that hath surpassed all things visible and invisible.
Thou art the Almighty, the Most Exalted, the All-Glorious, the All- Loving.
O Lord! Open Thou the door. Provide the means, prepare the way, make safe the path. That we may be guided to those souls, whose hearts are prepared for Thy Cause, and that they may be guided to us. Verily, Thou art the Merciful, the Most Bountiful, the All-Powerful.
The River Turned To Blood And the Third Shaking Of The Earth:
An Open Letter To The Hopi People
And all peoples of the Four Corners of the sacred Heart
A long time ago, we, like all other people were sent a Prophet who gave us instructions on how to walk a life path in harmony with the Creator’s all-encompassing plan.
Along with those instructions we were given a three-part Covenant symbolized as a bow, to keep for all generations after that prophet’s departure from us.
We were told that if we kept that Covenant we would remain as One People pure of heart and thereby be able to recognize Baha’na, the Promised One whom our Prophet told us would come as his return to us in a far distant future.
We were told that we would have to make a choice at that time.
One of the proofs of the authenticity and veracity of the Promised Baha’na would be that he would possess the full knowledge of the symbols on a small, broken stone tablet given to the Hopi of the Fire Clan by our Prophet and the meaning thereof, a knowledge withheld from us when only part of it was left with us by the Prophet upon his departure from us.
We were also told that in that future time, if we remained firm in the Covenant the Prophet made with us, the Baha’na would point to another Promised One whom our Prophet called “The Guardian of The Land”.
Sadly, as a people, we failed to uphold the three-part Covenant we made with our Prophet.
This is however, not a judgement, rather this is a lesson, an opportunity for all of us to turn back onto the path of the One-Heart and take up the bow of that Covenant once again in this hour.
When the first atomic bombs, those “gourds of ashes” our prophet told us would be created by the two-hearts and cause such misery and destruction upon the land as had never been known were test-detonated near our sacred lands, we knew it was time to send out our emissaries to tell our white brothers it would be a grave mistake to use them.
Our pleas fell on deaf ears.
Many years later, one among our traditional, spiritual elders named Grandfather David Monongye had a vision by which he was made aware of the fact of the return of that Prophet from our ancient history, in the person of the Promised One our prophet himself said would be sent to us at a time of great peril, the one he called Baha’na.
At that time, Grandfather David and those who remained traditional among our people sent out emissaries, this time to seek out and contact the Promised One known by the Hopi as the Baha’na in an effort to learn his New Song and sing it to the world to bring about a new world of peace and justice for all people, the prophesied Fifth World.
One of those emissaries succeeded.
Unfortunately when she returned to tell of her success in finding and learning from Baha’na, she, along with her good news, was rejected by the Two-Hearted ones living amongst the Hopi who had other intentions than to learn the New Song of the Baha’na.
Because of this the Bow of the Covenant remained broken upon the dust of the earth in Hopi Land for the remaining days of Grandfather David’s life.
Grandfather David saw many signs in the heaven of his vision that confirmed the presence of the one we call Baha’na, our True White Brother, that Promised One, who was alive in the world at that time.
Among the signs he witnessed was the fulfillment of the prophecy regarding the turning of the children of the White Conquerors back to the way of peace in the days of the Baha’na. The prophecy says that they would grow their hair long, travel and gather throughout the land and they would be called by a name that was almost like Hopi. These were the Hippies of the 1960’s.
Many years later, when Grandfather David heard of the gathering of the Rainbow Tribe he, along with a group of Traditional Hopi attended it in New Mexico in 1977 and presented the Hopi history and Prophecy to them. Grandfather David confirmed the fulfillment of prophecy when he said to the Hippies of the Rainbow Tribe “Hopi and Hippie are alike, peace people are Hopi, Hopi is peace, you are all Hopi”.
It was in July of the year 1983 when Thomas Banyacya himself, the official spokesman for the traditional Hopi Elders sent four seekers whom he personally inducted as traditional Hopi, out into the world from the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York to look for the Baha’na. I was one of them.
He told all four of us while sitting at the base of a small tree in the midst of a very large, open field, that we should look for the Baha’na whom he said would be either a very young boy or a very old man at that time. He said we would need to learn the Song of the Baha’na and do whatever we could to bring the traditional Hopi people and the Baha’na together if we found him, as time to lessen the destructive aspects of the Great Purification was running out and the Baha’na was the only one who could lead all humanity through it with his New Song which the Hopi did not yet know how to sing.
After the passing of Grandfather David, in all, three (3) messengers went out from the place called Massauwa, the prophesied address of the Baha’na sent by the Baha’na himself in an effort to bring our traditional, spiritual people together with him to learn the New Song.
All three were rejected.
The first went directly to Hopi Land and was turned away without being given any audience at all, not even so much as a chance to speak before the traditional Hopi Elders. This was the Creator knocking on the door of the Hopi a first time. It corresponds to the prophesied “first shaking of the earth with one hand”.
The second met Thomas Banyacya, spokesman for the traditional Hopi Elders in 1987 during the time of the Harmonic Convergence at the home of Jose Arguelles in Colorado. Specific, detailed proof was handed to him by an emissary of the Baha’na yet no conversation followed. No response ever came from Thomas Banyacya or the traditional Hopi Elders. This was the Creator knocking on the door of the Hopi a second time. It corresponds to the “second shaking of the earth with one hand”.
In July of the year 1987 during the time of the National Rainbow Gathering in the Cherokee National Forest of North Carolina I was told of the Baha’na by one of his traveling students. I then realized I had to see the proof that he was in fact the Promised Baha’na of Hopi Prophecy for myself. I traveled to Missoula, Montana, which is in the Hopi language “Massauwa”, the name of the place of the Baha’na, where I learned the New Song directly from Him in the second half of the month of August, in the days immediately following the time of the Harmonic Convergence (Aug. 16-17, 1987).
Afterward I began looking for the path by which to deliver the message to the Traditional Hopi People to come forth and learn the New Song from him and then meet The Guardian of The Land. For a few years I explored many paths by which to bring the Hopi Elders together with their long-awaited Baha’na but no opportunity availed itself.
It was in the year 1993 that I met a seeker who called himself Joseph who was traveling by invitation to Hopi Land. I taught Joseph the truth of the Fire Clan Tablet fulfilled and taught to me by the Baha’na and he set out on his way to Hopi Land. Joseph arrived bearing the message that the Baha’na awaited the Hopi signal that they were ready to learn the New Song from him. http://bahaifireside.org
As explained earlier in this letter, Great Spirit had already sent two other messengers (angels) before me from the Baha’na to knock on the door: my message was the third knocking. This corresponds to the Creator knocking on the Hopi door a third time. The third shaking of the earth is yet to come; as it is with two hands the Creator will do this.
At that time the inhabitants of Hopi Land were embroiled in conflict among themselves and the call of the Baha’na passed along by me, the third messenger, to Joseph the Seeker, and delivered directly into the heart of Hopi Land and Life was rejected once again. This was the third time the message of the Baha’na had been delivered and rejected.
One year later, in the summer of 1994, I received a message on my radio pager from the “Hopi Cultural Preservation Office” stating that they wanted to find out about the missing cornerstone of the Fire Clan Tablet and the one who had it as they had heard all about it from Joseph the Seeker.
I called them back and told them I would have to contact the Baha’na to receive his specific instructions on how to proceed. I then contacted Him directly and He told me exactly what He wanted me to tell them. He told me that I would know if they wanted their Promised Baha’na and the New Song or if they only wanted a piece of stone for their museum case. I called them back immediately, delivered the Baha’na’s message to them exactly as he spoke it to me and their response told me all I needed to know. They said they would be in touch with me, we exchanged polite goodbyes and I never heard from them again. That was the end of the third knock.
Now, at this time when the River has been turned to Blood (Animas of the San Juan and Colorado Rivers that flows through the Heart Land – http://www.bahaijustice.com/2015/08/11/prophecy-fulfilled-and-the-river-was-turned-to-blood-kamal-11-172-b-e-8112015 on August 6th, 2015 exactly 70 prophesied years from August 6, 1945 when the “gourd of ashes” was dropped on Hiroshima from the Uranium mined from Four Corners Area; and the waters that have heretofore nourished not only the Hopi but the Land and Life of all the peoples of the Colorado Plateau and beyond are poisoned with toxic heavy metals and other deadly chemicals from deep within the earth; at the time of the Fourth Blood Moon; Great Spirit calls me to knock for a final FOURTH TIME as third emissary sent by the Baha’na (turning back to face the Hopi a second time) and call the One-Hearted among them to take up the Bow of the Covenant and learn the New Song as taught by the Baha’na, the Promised One of the Hopi and all other peoples.
“And the third angel (third messenger from Baha’na) poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood (in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all other wars since) of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them (Military Industrial Complex and two-hearts amongst our peoples) blood to drink (Animas, San Juan and Colorado Rivers); for they are worthy” (Rev. 16:4,5,7 KJV) For more: http://entrybytroops.uhj.net
The missing cornerstone is a real, living person–he is the stone the builders rejected–even as we are all living stones in the holy temple of living earth. The physical cornerstone artifact, like the physical missing capstone (missing top cornerstone) of the Great Pyramid are material physical stone symbols of this real, living person (a human being who is precious) who is the actual “missing” cornerstone–missing because the two-hearted builders reject him: and the people who have deaf ears only faintly heard the first three knocks. This fourth knocking is the last.
Thus Great Spirit shakes the world first with one hand to try to wake the people up; then a second time with one hand again to try to wake it up. These were the first two knocks to the Hopi people by the first two messengers (angel means messenger) sent to them by Baha’na.
Now the third angel (messenger from Baha’na) knocked for the third time in the 1990s and now with “his other hand” knocks again as the “River has turned to blood” exactly “3 ½ times” (a time being a score of 20 years: 3 ½ x 20 years = 70 years) from the ground zero date of the Hiroshima bombing on August 6, 1945. This fourth knock by the third messenger is the Great Spirit shaking the people awake with “two hands.” This is happening in time for the unmasking of Blue Star Kachina and the completion of the 49.98 years Jubilee cycle of double star Sirius in the night sky.
This is the final, third shaking with “two hands” by the third messenger to the Hopi–signaling that the first Great Shaking of the World (World War I) and the second Great Shaking (World War II) by Great Spirit each with only one hand is NOW to be succeeded by the third Great Shaking of All the World with “two hands.” This third great shaking according to Grandfather David is to be World War III in which one third of humanity is prophesied to be killed in one hour of thermonuclear war with every American City population 100,000 or more to be destroyed. This unleashes the four winds held back at “four corners” that Grandfather David has forewarned: the fourth and final wind being the “earth’s shifting crust” because of the crimes against mother earth in the failures of all the peoples of the world to follow Great Spirit’s instructions, according to Grandfather David, Wovoka, Black Elk, Sitting Bull, all the Hebrew Prophets, White-Buffalo Calf-Woman, Rolling Thunder, Long Standing Bear Chief, Red Crow and the other prophets, elders, teachers, medicine men and women and shamans of all races creeds and colors sent to warn all the peoples of living Gaia.
The Guardian of the Land is now alive in the world (https://www.createspace.com/356540) and he awaits (ready to help and serve) your return to the True Path of Peace, the path of the True Hopi.
What has happened in our New Jerusalem from the years 1996 on August 6th until recently? The Covenant-breakers have attacked the Twin Establishers of the Baha’i Faith, the prophesied Joshua and Zerubbabel–the two witnesses mentioned in Revelation chapter 11–that bear witness to the Reality of the twin Testaments of the Kitab-i-Ahd and the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. These attacks have been levied against the person of the living Davidic King (the guardian) in every way imaginable and unimaginable, but God has prevailed against these peoples and “brought forth his servant the Branch” (Zech. 3:8 KJV) in the year 2001 AD. In 2012 he announced his “four corners medicine wheel prophecy” re-activating ‘Abdul-Baha’s Tablets of the Divine Plan. This meant the election of the first US National Council since the violation of the Covenant in 1957-1960, which took place in Ridvan 2015.
Now in the prophesied location of “the Four Corners” (Is. 11: 12) passing through the precise spot of the “four corners” (see map below) God has fulfilled his words in the Book of Revelation: “And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy” (Rev. 16:4,5 & 7 KJV) in the Animas River disaster of the Four Corners with such high content of iron (“About 70 percent of your body’s iron is found in the red blood cells of your blood called hemoglobin”) and other heavy metals turning the river to blood and toxic poison:
This disaster has occurred EXACTLY 19 years [one vahid] to the day of the ascension of the Establisher, Knight of Baha’u’llah, Dr. Leland Jensen: August 6th 1996 + 19 years = 2015. [In addition it is exactly 70 years to the day from the dropping of the atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, the act which fulfilled the “Gourd of Ashes” prophecy given by the Hopi people. 70 years is the prophetic Biblical time cycle given as “a time, two times, and half a time”, where a “time” is calculated as a score which is 20 years.] It should be kept in my that I gave the date for the Trade Tower 9-11 from the start date of his ascension in 1996 on this very day of August 6: see chart Collapse of the Two Towers: Second Woe – Prophecy Chart. This current “river to blood”: thus fits into the extension of this prophesied time line of the “three woes” in the prophesied Cycle of the Seven Seals I have explained in my firesides, deepenings and table talks that has occurred in time for the prophesied “four blood moon” events (the Tetrad) that takes place in the Guardians 49th year (1966 + 49 years = 2015) and then the jubilee.
In my mission it states: “He will lift a signal flag [Divine Standard, Banner of the genealogy of Baha’u’llah http://www.bupc.org/genealogy/genealogy-of-christ.html] for the nations; he will gather Israel’s dispersed people and assemble Judah’s scattered people from “the four corners” [Colorado Plateau] of the earth” (Is. 11:12 Net Bible). The river turning to blood is the signal of the flag of “the blood of the Covenant” being raised in that area and the attack by those whom Baha’u’llah calls “the manifestations of satan” against our efforts [“Michael and his angles fought” Rev. Ch. 12] in the promised area of the four corners that includes all sacred spaces on the Colorado Plateau and Grand Mesa/Chair Mountain area and is the signal for the judgement and defeat of “satan”: “Satan will be released from his prison [Covenant-breakers attack the guardian seated upon King David’s throne (Michael and his angels–see Rev 12 for the 6-66 Injunction)] and will come out to deceive the nations [turn the people away from Michael and his angels] that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog [Ez Ch. 38 and 39, Russia will be dragged into this at this time], to gather them for battle [oil battle for control of the Middle East]; their number is like the sand of the sea. And they marched up over the broad plain of “the earth” [they were the ex-followers educated by Dr. Leland–the land–Jensen’s teachings] and surrounded the camp [camp Bahá] of the saints [guardian’s personal home and family] and the beloved city [New JerUSAlem in the Rocky Mountains], but fire came down from heaven [the heaven of prophecy] and consumed them, and the devil [personal individual arch-violators–whose symbol is the dragon–see Rev. 12] who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast [materialists, partiers, drunks, adulterers, deceptive music, false merriment, money-mongers, shopaholics, and drugs (Matt. 24:38, 39)] and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever” (Rev 20:7-10 ESV).
So it is written “and [the two witnesses: Joshua and Zerubbabel] have power over waters to turn them to blood” (Rev. 11: 6 KJV) that ‘Abdu’l-Baha explains this verse in SAQ: “if they wished, they could turn the water of the Nile into blood, so far as the Egyptians and those who denied them were concerned—that is to say, that that which was the cause of their life, through their ignorance and pride, became the cause of their death. So the kingdom, wealth and power of Pharaoh and his people, which were the causes of the life of the nation, became, through their opposition, denial and pride, the cause of death, destruction, dispersion, degradation and poverty. Hence these two witnesses [who have returned and appeared repeatedly in every dispensation with different names in different places] have power to destroy the nations” (‘Abdu’l-Baha, SAQ, Commentary on Rev Ch. 11).
Now I tell you truthfully that these cites and towns all throughout the New Jerusalem in the Rocky Mountains have been peppered with Covenant-breakers and people raised up by myself and Dr. Leland Jensen who have cared nothing for the Baha’i faith at all but only for to save their own lives or increase their own personal power, self prowess and personal gains. They came to the mountains not to become believers in God but to either save their own skins, so to speak or to take the knowledge we have given freely to bunk-up “chair mountain churches” and “survivalist groups” for their own personal aggrandizement and empowerment all in opposition to the Baha’i Faith and the Covenant of Baha’u’llah and the successorship of the throne of King David. Through back-biting, gossip, slander, character assassination, mis-information, disinformation and even down right lies they have sought to attack this Covenant and Baha’i faith and invalidate the blood of over 10,000 Bab’i martyrs and 20,000 Baha’i martyrs by attacking and poisoning the people against these Twin promised ones who have appeared in the United States and back-stabbing their wives and family members, and fellow believers in the Covenant of Baha’u’llah and the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. “Blood” they have taken and the Revelation states “blood is their due!”
Those of the nations outside of this area all know that we have a 100% track record yet they have suppressed the unfurling of the Divine Banner http://www.bupc.org/genealogy/genealogy-of-christ.html at the 9-11 event and have attempted by diverse means to move against the faith in its livelihood as well as in the material basis of its support–and while the poison spreads further into the Grand Canyon and poisons the water table for many, many peoples for years to come–the guardian and his friends have personally endured against them all in the courts and the civil and secular systems as well as the Arena of Absolute Truth and the Pavilion of the Supreme Reality because the violators have chosen to fight against God Himself and God has prevailed against these people. If only you could read the Book of Revelation (for your very own self) with your own eyes and not through the eyes of your neighbors you would see what is to occur next that is more disastrous than this minor taste of retributions…as one by one the enemies of the Cause of God, Shoghi Effendi explains, are met with that which is Condign: http://uhj.net/condign-punishment.html
What is the mysterious Power of “Michael and his angels” that comes not from money, nor politics, nor prestige, charisma or material backing? Why are all the forces in the universe unable to prevail against it? Why has the Faith grown to now encompass Iran, Bangladesh, India, all of Arabic speaking Islam, the Urdu speaking peoples, India, Syria, Turkey, the Middle East and those in Russia, and the Far East? The more the hounds of personal appetites push against the truth–the brighter the fire of this unquenchable flame! The more they make fun of and attack the true believers in their very own homes, and inner family circles, the more God promises to save the pure of heart and spread the Faith far and wide. Does he do this to see the “unbelievers destroyed”? The Muslim, Christian and Jewish clergies would have you believe so, but the unbeliever is destroyed when he becomes a believer. And the wicked is destroyed when she becomes wise. Thus all shall taste death and become believers and wise souls after their mortal coil is bled dry–but most will believe in this wisdom–if you can call it that, says Paul–a crazy-wisdom (1 Cor. 1:20) that is foolish to the worldly-wise–who are looking into the Kingdom from far, far outside, and are unable to enter the Kingdom as Jesus said “not my will o Lord but thine”–not a threat but a fact–that they lack the capacity to serve that which is “other” than what ‘Abdu’l-Baha calls their “ever insistent self” and these instead fall by the sword of their own appetites into grievous errors–because they would have it NO other way. So the victory belongs to those who have died now (NDE), died away from self and passion, died away from old habits, from their stuck-up orgies, and “a’whoring around after false Guardians” as Dr. Jensen has said. Behold they have “died” and yet live for ever more” now in this life and in the next–but only for those who have seen the VISION, climbed the Mountain, so to speak, been filled with the Spirit, that do not apostatize their faith, but deepen in his loving kindness–“used their intellect to defeat antichrist”–for God so loved the world he sent his only begotten son that we should have life-eternal: and the son gave himself willingly though the masses comprehend him not!
“For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the experts. ” (1 Cor. 1:19, Holman’s)
The hour has come in which the “golden censor” (of Positive-Leap 80) is filled with fire (9-11) and burning coals (4-11) from the “altar” and thrown upon the earth. This from the time of Dr. Jensen’s world wide media projection in 1980 and filled now with “fire” in the prophesied time of the jubilee of the tetrad blood moons in our day today.
Like those who loved Jesus–but fell “asleep” (Matt. 26:40) in the garden, those who are wakeful today in this day are those that shall be elevated by God to fulfill this mission to gather the elect from the four corners of the world and be spared the chastisement, that Baha’u’llah states: “We have a fixed time for you, O peoples. If ye fail, at the appointed hour, to turn towards God, He, verily, will lay violent hold on you, and will cause grievous afflictions to assail you from every direction. How severe, indeed, is the chastisement with which your Lord will then chastise you!” (WOB, p. 201). “And the river shall be turned to BLOOD…
The prophecy of the “Blood river” is one of the greatest disasters ecologically in US history. Its flow down through New Mexico and Arizona is the sign to awaken the native people to the fulfillment of this real vision as we gave the “nine pointed star” back in the 1980s, and Dr. Jensen and his angels delivered the “missing cornerstone” to the Hopi peoples of these areas with the Navaho yet they rejected him and he was denied–but now they give the signal of the cornerstone restored by Grandfather Martin as Dr. Jensen and his angels gave it to them.
These nations will accept the Divine Banner and it shall be hoisted in their midst to all the people of the world.
THE RIVER TURNING TO BLOOD IS THE SIGNAL.
The Covenant and the Manifestations are the foundation of civilization: as civilization if founded upon the spiritual qualities and attributes of God such as love, justice, honor, trustworthiness, mercy, humility, etc. We cannot have a society or any group activities without these basic qualities of co-operation and mutual respect! As these spiritual qualities and attributes emanate from the personal reality of God himself and are established as his image within creation in the appearance of the divine manifestations of God these are the glue of any group cohesion and effort. The attack on these 9 and the separation from the root of these Divine Revelators of progressive civilization is the downfall of society and the havoc (collapse) of the financial booty of war for the greedy and small minded. The greedy oil people and corrupt leaders of our cultures have either abandoned all hope or gone against this living spirit of Christ and thus we have the absence of these qualities in war, pestilence, famine, disease, ignorance and the disintegration of civilization.
This disintegration is so that the spiritual people of the nations and those beginning at the four corners will establish a true spiritual civilization–having tasted the blood of his covenant that recompenses the blood of the martyrs—-not like a corrupt society like that which is dying out right now.
The release of this blood from the heart-land of the four corners (its inward spiritual purity of the blood of the covenant and outward lethal poison of the rivers) sets the signal for these events to unfold.
Blessed are those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. This spread throughout Utah and New Mexico into the Colorado River and Grand Canyon and has poisoned the water supply for Arizona and California that is now even in draught.
The Guardian, The living Davidic King can be contacted here: info@UHJ.net. Prophecy is always fulfilled but expectations are not.
Wake up O People, says Baha’u’llah, for your time is short.
Just a reminder about pushing the button, and to whom (Ez. 38, 39) the US gave the button to push:
Like most people–who are burned by corrupt organized “religions” they leave the church organizations of man but still accept the reality of the Founders–Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, Moses, Krishna, etc. and continue to worship God in their own way–these too still accept Baha’u’llah, but due to the sting of the violation of the Baha’i Covenant they have been unable, for the most part, to re-gather under the provisions of the Covenant until recently.
This is what happened with all the American Baha’is in general during the days of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. When his half-brother Muhammad-Ali broke the Covenant the people became poisoned and perturbed and were unable to have fellowship with one another at Baha’i gatherings.
After ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s journey to the U.S. in 1912 this situation was reversed as the American peoples (native, white, brown, black, yellow, red–everyone of all creeds and colors) were able to meet with ‘Abdu’l-Baha in person; and through the love of ‘Abdu’l-Baha these blossoms on the tree of life were re-grown and flourished once again.
This is what has happened in the Native American world since the 9-11 in 2001 through the love, education and service of the great-grandson of ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Neal Chase.
Lee Brown and the Salish Indian Baha’is
In the Baha’i library there is an excellent file on Hopi Prophecy called, “Traditional Native American Prophecies.” It is a beautiful testament to the Baha’i Faith. The Author of the document is Lee Brown. He is a scholar and teacher (Ph.D.) of Aboriginal values and epistemology as well as member of the Cherokee Nation and the Wolf Clan who spent a few years in Hopi land studying the prophecies and ways of the tribes of the Southwest. While at Four Corners in Arizona Lee had visions and realized that the Baha’i Faith was the long awaited “New Religion” for the Native peoples of the Americas as well as Baha’u’llah being the One spoken of in all world faiths and promised to come in all wisdom traditions. Since Lee Brown recognized Baha’u’llah, the administrative leadership of the “Baha’i World Faith” has used his testament for years to introduce people to the Baha’i Faith without their informed consent and knowledge of the great Covenant-breaking takeover–“Baha’i Gate“–that occurred in 1960.
When Lee Brown came into the Faith, he was so convinced and motivated that it was the true religion of Wakan Tanka (The Great Mystery) that he was able to bring in hundreds of Coast Salish Native peoples from the tribes in British Columbia where he now works and lives. There were mass declarations. But something went wrong.
You see, it is a fact that Lee Brown and his wife and the entire Coast Salish tribe of BC have torn up their membership cards and none of them attend any administrative “Baha’i” functions any more. Where is Lee Brown?
In October of ‘95, Lee Brown told his story: He said that he made a mistake signing up with the “Baha’i World Faith” and that he was sorry that he led his tribe astray. He said that the “Baha’i” Faith was “just another white man’s religion, just like the ones before it.” He said he believes in Baha’u’llah but not in the so-called “Baha’i” Faith and that he wanted “nothing to do with it.” He said that the “White Baha’is” of Vernon, BC (that is where he lives) were exclusive, cliquish, selfish, egotistical and prejudicial. He said that they treated the Natives as “sub-humans” and that the “white Baha’is” had built a “wall of separation that was 300 feet tall” between themselves and the natives. They hogged the jobs (wouldn’t hire Natives), looked down their noses at them and in general despised the Indians. Lee saw by their behavior that these people calling themselves “Baha’i” were in no way of the True Religion of God. So he and his tribe in BC left their phony “Baha’i” Faith. He is so angry with them for getting his signature in the first place and duping him. Through the Power of the Covenant these people have been set free from the Violation of the Covenant of the “Hands!”
Long-Standing Bear Chief
One day, while the “Guardian of the Land” was living in Missoula (Masauwu) Montana, the people facilitating the local Baha’i Center received a phone call from Long-Standing Bear Chief of the Blackfoot Pikuni Nation. He was very angry and wanted to redress grievance (which is his right) against the Baha’is. The people became scared and reported this contact that day at the weekly Forum of Dr. Leland Jensen, who always sat at the right hand of Neal, the guardian of “the Land” seated upon the throne.
Dr. Jensen made a call for volunteers of people who would go up North to Browning and meet with Long-Standing Bear Chief as he requested. No one responded. Neal then said that he would go as he had always wanted to go up and visit Browning and now this was a perfect opportunity that had presented itself. Later on that same night some of the friends came up to Neal and told him, that he should change his mind, as Browning was a dangerous place and people were known to go up there and disappear. This didn’t change his mind but made him want to go up there all the more.
It was finally agreed that he would go as long as someone else accompanied him. A native Montanan who happened to be Métis (like Louis Riel) volunteered to drive up there with him.
On the drive, Neal said that if all this goes well, should Long-Standing Bear Chief want to smoke the pipe with them, that they should not inhale the smoke but only hold it in the mouth, then say prayers in their innermost hearts and release the smoke. His companion objected that this was some sort of slur and racial stereotype. Neal dropped the conversation.
When they arrived in Browning, the town was a disaster. There were old burned out cars, unkempt mud streets, poverty, worn down trailer homes, alcoholism and other terrible things. It was nothing like the Salish-Kootenai area of Montana where the Flatheads had made alliance with “the black robes” of the Jesuit priests since the days of the 1800s and were very wealthy and have a wonderful college and strong local economy.
They got out of the car and walked up to the front door and Harold Gray welcomed them in cordially, but restrained. As they introduced themselves, it was quite obvious that Harold was upset and holding something back. He proceeded to tell them that some time before he had found out about Baha’u’llah and had become a Baha’i. He was also a very powerful and erudite human rights activist. He told of how he had accepted the 12 principles and had fallen in love all over again with God having found the truth of his own native tradition fulfilled in our day today. As he said this he became more and more agitated. It turned out, that he had no idea that he had joined that Covenant-breaking outfit that was only masquerading as “Baha’i.” Recently something terrible had happened and those Covenant-breakers had broken up his family and declared that his wife and children should completely shun and avoid him, and he had lost all contact with his wife and children including his son that was to succeed him in his life-traditional work. He was very upset about this.
It was at about this time as he was standing before them, and they sat upon the couch, and he was shaking and raising his voice, that Neal finally got his attention and interrupted him. He asked if he could speak and just say one thing. Harold calmed down and recomposed himself, and said yes, and then Neal told him that they were the Baha’is Under the Provisions of the Covenant, and that the whole Baha’i world had violated the Covenant and that many, many people had suffered through these similar types of family breakups destroying marriages and harming the children. He said in fact he had seen this among the Native Americans as well, when he had met with a great-grandson of Sitting Bull previously in Mobridge, SD, and that Harold Gray was not alone in this calamity.
Harold was perplexed. He said that he did not know that Neal was not with that Covenant-breaking group when he called the Baha’i Center in Missoula. He said he was still so upset that he did not know what to do with himself. He said that he understood that the guardian also had been exiled and persecuted by these same nefarious peoples. But he said that he just had so much pain and turmoil inside of him over this that he just had to let it out and that he had already planned to do so this day. The Guardian said to him, “I understanding fully. Please go ahead and continue. We will sit here with you and listen to you no matter what you have to do until you have decided that you are done.” He then opened up, and the mightiest and heaviest torrent denouncing injustice and corruption such as one couldn’t possibly imagine came pouring out of him covering 400 to 500 years of oppression since 1620 AD (Plymouth Rock) and 1492 (since Columbus) until the present time, mixed in with broken tragedy and weeping over his lost family, and strong valiant statements of the promises of God for justice and freedom for all and what was to occur at the time the “Napi” appeared. He paced back and forth in his oration making his stand and statement, and then “ahou” he was done.
He then reached inside his pocket and pulled out a medium sized stone polished object. He said that this was the sacred pipe that he held as keeper of his tribe. He then told the guardian that his native name was Long-Standing Bear Chief and that this was the ancient pipe of his ancestors that had been passed down through countless generations that he himself had received from his father before him and as his father had received it. He said that they would someday smoke this together but because of the terrible reasons for meeting on that day it would have to wait for another time that God would so permit. The Guardian turned to his companion and said, “I do not stereotype, and I am not racial. I know what I know and I see what I see.”
Today, the “River Has Turned To Blood” (Rev. 16:4-7) that runs through “Four Corners” (Is. 11:12 KJV) and Hopi land. The signs of God are fulfilled and the time for all the people to awake has arrived.
In the final Fireside, all of the previous studies are incorporated and demonstrated within the Establisher of the Baha’i Faith’s explanation and commentary on the Book of Revelation from the New Testament of the Holy Bible. During the course of this absolutely authoritative work, the complete spectrum of all areas of knowledge is incorporated and the time line of Past, Present and Future is brought to a single point of understanding and focus. In addition to this the sum of all the six earlier Firesides is enfolded into the Establisher’s Explanations and commentaries.
Fireside 7 completes the Fireside series. With the Firesides as the basic education, the world will know the unity of all Religions, Sciences, and areas of human study and endeavor. With this as the foundation of Universal Public Education, all will be assured of a common point of reference and the integration of all study and research will bring all people out of the darkness of ignorance.
The Sixth Fireside illustrates the Baha’i Basic Principal that “True Science and True Religion Must Correspond”. It illuminates the scientific proofs for the authenticity of the Nine Manifestations of God who were sent to mankind to deliver a progressive revelation for the continuing advancement of human civilization.
In this Fireside there are pathways into the study of Anthropology, Archeology, Architecture, Astronomy, Engineering, Geology, Geography, History, Mathematics, and Metallurgy to name a few.
Through the course of this Fireside the seeker is required to learn the measurements of the structures which comprise the Great Pyramid of Giza (The Bible in Stone) and how those measurements in arithmetical formulas show the fulfillment of Biblical Time Prophecies and significant historical events recorded in the Bible and other records. Geology is used to show how the very types of rock used in the construction of the entire Great Pyramid of Giza pertain to the prophecies for all the Manifestations of God over the past 6000 years. The Geology of the Great Pyramid of Giza also confirms western hemisphere Pre-Columbian Native American History, Prophecy and Science. The patterns of construction in the various sections of the Great Pyramid of Giza are also shown to bear out a wealth of scientific data which only the greatest scientific research efforts of the past century have been able to approach.
The fifth Fireside, in giving forth the proofs for the Establisher of the Baha’i Faith requires the seeker to draw upon everything learned in the previous four Firesides. It includes the utilization of the scientific method employed in the application of the Golden Criteria to determine how prophecy has been fulfilled by one specific individual in all of history whom Bahai’s know as the Establisher. Once again, these four criteria are: 1. proof by Name, 2. proof by Date, 3. proof by Address, 4. proof by Mission.
While this is the lesson of this Fireside; that the Establisher of the Baha’i Faith has come fulfilling Prophecy, it teaches lessons on many other levels. Some of the lessons of this Fireside have to do with justice and injustice and profound perseverance in the face of seemingly overwhelming opposition. It also clearly illustrates how prophecy is fulfilled in the current day and is not confined to history.
All of the research required in the first three firesides which involve researching Biblical texts are employed within this Fireside and this research now expands to the Baha’i texts as well.
The fourth Fireside is an explanation of the Covenant. The Covenant is the binding agreement or understanding between God and His creation on many levels. It is the primal contract. It is in effect and established immutably between God and all of nature, between God and His Promised Ones, and between God and all of humanity collectively as well as individually. It is not my purpose to delve into the universality or intricacies of God’s Covenant in this forum. That can begin with the seeker being guided through the Covenant Fireside itself, followed by personal exploration, meditation and reflection without limit within the depths of the Baha’i sacred writings.
The Covenant Fireside itself is the explanation of the book of Baha’u’llah’s Covenant and the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha specifically. An understanding of these documents shows the seeker the Divine origination of all areas of human thought and endeavor concerning law and justice. Through the Covenant Fireside one begins to understand that all human efforts at unity, and civilization and all that those ideals imply and encompass have their inspiration in God’s Covenant, even without conscious human awareness of it. It also requires the seeker to reflect back upon and draw from the three previous Firesides and enables them to see the continuity of the will and purpose of God working throughout every age and epoch of the life of His creation and in the life of the seeker personally.
In this third Fireside, the four-part, Golden Criteria learned in the second Fireside are applied to the prophecies of Christ’s return, Baha’u’llah, and includes at it’s starting point those prophecies for the return of His Forerunner The Bab.
This is a reaffirmation of the scientific method as it applies to religious scripture in the investigation of prophetic fulfillment. It demonstrates the repeatability of The Divine Standard method by empirically eliminating the infinite field of possibilities, the vast but finite array of all probabilities and reaching the single outcome to the event or The Advent. This process is elemental in the study of such an advanced science as High Energy Theoretical Particle Physics but has its origin in the study of prophetic scripture.
In the process of applying The Divine Standard to the set of prophecies concerning The Return of Christ and His Forerunner, the seeker becomes familiar with words and phrases of the languages which are and were native to the inhabitants of the lands referred to in Bible. This continues and broadens the seekers introduction to the field of Linguistics and the study of religious symbolism while leading them to the wellspring of knowledge and the solution to all of the ills of the human world whether physical/material, mental or spiritual.
This Fireside demonstrates how with the very logical process of deductive reasoning, we can clearly see how Jesus of Nazareth fulfills the prophetic criteria given prior to His advent which prove Him to be the first of two Biblical Messiahs prophesied in the text of the Old Testament.
This logical, scientific system gives four criteria which when combined, point irrefutably to only one possible individual as the solution to the equation. These criteria are the prophesied Name, Date, Address and Mission. Together these four steps are called the “Golden Criteria” and can be applied as The Divine Standard to determine if anyone at any point in all of recorded history to the present is an authentic Promised One sent by God.
This portion of the second Fireside teaches the foundation of critical thinking which is the basis of the entire study of Philosophy and logical thought. Beginning with this Fireside and in certain others to follow, the skills of basic mathematics are employed as part of the application of these Golden Criteria. Through this lens applied to all fields of investigation, the truth of all things may ultimately be discovered.
In the rest of this Fireside the history of the Christian Religion is unfolded and the corruption of its fundamental expression and promulgation is laid bare for the understanding of all who seek the truth no matter how distasteful it may be. This part of the second Fireside is an education in world history through religious example which uses the disciplines of Historical Documentation, Archeology, Anthropology, the study of Languages, Literature and Symbolism as well as the methods and process of investigative research. The result brings the seeker conclusively to the understanding of how this world came to be in the condition we find it in at the present moment.
In the first Fireside entitled “Why Life”, the most basic questions of existence are both asked and answered. In the collection of his table talks entitled Some Answered Questions, Abdu’l-Baha builds a foundation for an understanding of the creation and purpose of the existence of all the levels or kingdoms within the natural world. These explanations actually form the basis for the study of the planet earth and all life upon it.
The first is the mineral kingdom which forms the most elemental atomic/energetic level, the study of which encompasses Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mineralogy and Geography and crosses over into areas of learning such as Archeology and Paleontology among others.
The second is the plant or vegetable kingdom. From the understanding given by Abdu’l-Baha, the student can find their way into Botony and a wealth of other’s such as Horticulture, Herbology and the study of Herbal Medicine for example.
Third in the hierarchy of earthly realms as explained by Abdu’l-Baha is the animal kingdom. Learning about the animal kingdom and its dependency upon the plant and mineral kingdoms respectively is the beginning of knowledge in the schools of Zoology, General Biology, Ecology and Animal Husbandry or true stewardship of our God-given earthly resources, an art and science which mankind is, especially today, badly in need of deepening understanding.
The fourth kingdom is that of the human. The explanation of this kingdom given by Abdu’l-Baha opens the door to the study of all Social Sciences, the Arts and Psychology, Anthropology, Archeology and History to name only the most basic. Further advancement from this is made into the deeper study of Philosophy and Religious Thought.
With this as the foundation for understanding the structure of creation, answers to questions and proofs of the reality of God are given and expounded upon. Proofs for the Divine Plan and those who revealed it to humanity are provided which open the door to the study of religious, cultural and literary History as well.
The first Fireside, “Why Life”, encompasses much more than these schools of study and is yet only the beginning of a true Baha’i education. The complete Fireside series is always given free of any price by any Baha’i acting under the Provisions of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah as given on page ten of the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha.
