Izzat 7, 172 Baha’i Era (9/14/2015) Covenant Breakers Corrupt Baha’i Holy Books!

Press Release

For Immediate Release:

COVENANT-BREAKING “BAHA’IS” CORRUPT THEIR OWN HOLY BOOKS!

VIOLATORS OF THE COVENANT ERASE: “SEVENTH ANGEL PROPHECY”!!

 

Dear friends,

 

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. (‘Abdu’l-Baha, Original Prophecy 1908 SAQ)

 

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)

Supplications

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.

That’s correct Doris. Here is the authoritative interpretation of that Tablet:

“Concerning the Tablet of the Holy Mariner, it is one of the most significant Tablets revealed by Bahá’u’lláh during the last days of His stay in Baghdad, and His arrival in Adrianople. Its main significance lies in the fact that in it Bahá’u’lláh clearly foreshadows the grave happenings, which eventually led to the defection of Subhi-Azal, and to the schism which the latter thought to create within the ranks of the faithful.”

There is no interpretation involved in direct verbatim quotes. It is you who has misconstrued the quotes from the Baha’i Writings which were posted by Victor. He never gave any interpretations, what you are reading is directly from the writings.

Of course he interpreted! He has interpreted those passages to mean what he wants it to mean – that those words apply to a specific group of people right here and now in the present and, as is the way of cultists, that any portents of death and righteous vengenace applies to those he disagrees with.

Twas ever thus. It’s one of the hallmarks of cultists. Scripture is *always* about them and their enemies and it’s always crystal clear.Doris

What part of this are you unwilling or unable to grasp?

The statements you are responding to are not Victor’s, they are direct quotes from the writings of Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha’ and Shoghi Effendi given without interpretation as none is needed for they are crystal clear.

How very wrong you are dear Doris.
You’ve once again failed to comprehend what you read, thereby proving my point. In no instance did anyone wish any other one’s “a fiery, violent death on those he disagrees with” as you erroneously put it.
Rather, you have failed to see what is directly before your eyes which was Baha’ullah Himself stating the coming demise of those who violate His Covenant in His Tablet of The Holy Mariner which is not as you put it earlier “a bomb” but in reality a “burning meteor”. How could you possibly so grossly misconstrue those words? How could you not know the contents of that Tablet well enough to know that those are the words of Baha’u’llah and then vainly attribute them to another in an attempt to muddy the waters?
Once again, none of the passages you’ve taken issue with are anything at all but excerpts of the writings of three of the central figures of the Baha’i Faith, Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l-Baha’ and Shoghi Effendi, all quoted in context to illustrate the straight path to God’s Kingdom, the World Order of Baha’u’llah.

You were NOT talking about an ordeal for the whole of humanity (which I would suggest is a spiritual ordeal and has already arrived in spiritual form as much of humanity has forgotten God. It’s usually cults who believe in literal firey death, hell and brimstone etc..etc..and you are no exception.)
No, you were NOT talking about a fiery test for humanity, Victor. You were trying to come across as loving and tolerant to all, as Janice seems to be, while at the same time wishing for a literal fiery death upon a VERY SPECIFIC GROUP OF PEOPLE YOU DISAGREE WITH.
And that is stunning.
