“Elect the Supreme Tribunal! Uphold the 1928 Covenant of International Peace! (Kellogg-Briand Paris Peace Pact)”

The Baha’i Guardian’s Message on July 4, 2022

 

Previous generation: “We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.” – Buckminster Fuller.

 

This generation: “We are called to be the builders of the adytum, NOW, as well as its current and future benefactors!”

 

A home and safe haven for us all, here on planet earth…

 

Elect the Supreme Tribunal! It’s easy! We, the people, have already democratically elected our national governments. We’ve done our role, now we must URGE our national governments who represent us to do the same. If we do not urge them to do the job we elected them to do–and right now their duty by law of 1928, by article 6 in the US, is the job to elect the Supreme Tribunal–then we have not done our job and we all stand in violation of the Covenant of 1928 and the punishment is getting nuked by Putin; or something worse that is as yet unforeseen.

 

Now DC, London, Paris, and Moscow governments will elect three representatives from each, approved, ratified, and confirmed by the national congress, parliament, senate, upper and lower houses, and the president and executive of these nations.

 

Now these representatives will be knowledgeable in international affairs and the safeguarding of the peaceful needs and nations of the countries that they represent. As they are so confirmed and elected by the people, and represent the best interests of their own people and the best humanitarian interests of all the people of the world, they will be loved and supported by all the people of the world, for they are purposed with one simple task, to provide for the end of war.

 

It is absolutely essential that at the appointed time that the temporary ceasefire is declared in Ukraine, that these four nations elect this International Jury of twelve representatives (3 from each, with at least one female chosen amongst the three) to decide the aftermath of this “special operation” in light of the violation of the 1928 Covenant (Paris Peace Pact). This election is so to prevent the bias of appointed jurors that aggravated the situation and only made things worse at the colossal failure of the colonialism fire-sale at Versailles. Or like the political failure of the merely appointed membership of the US Supreme Court. Electing representative members from amongst all nations, not just cliques of ” winners” othering so-called ” losers” is key.

 

These first duly elected representatives have the powers of both judge and jury on the International Supreme Court (ISC) of the nations, the Supreme Tribunal, even as the 9 justices on the US Supreme Court have those same judicial powers in their Federation.

 

These first 12 Supreme Court justices of the world have one task, one job, and one job only: to uphold the 1928 Kellogg-Briand Paris Peace Pact and bring peace to the world. Job 1, bring an end to war.

 

This highest possibly imaginable world Supreme Court conceived at the international federal level between the nations globally, has absolutely no governmental powers within the jurisdictions of the nations or local areas governed by the nations. The nations already have their own armies and police to protect and safeguard the well being of their own citizens so the Supreme Tribunal needs no extra military force, or material military of its own, as all military force is at the nation-state level. Thus the principle of collective security, already approved and supported by all, is maintained.

 

What’s missing, is that despite the fact that we have a world system (oddly closely patterned with parallel aspects of the US Federal system) with the Foundational Legal Document of the World Charter of 1928, the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, the World Court, the ICC (the International Criminal Court), and at least two or more partisan Collective Security Agreements, like NATO and CSTO (both of which are bound to the 1928 Law via article 5 and 4 of their treaties and article 51 of the UN, all of which is operable in force as binding law upon all due to the Covenant of the 1928 Charter)–that is, despite all this, or because of it, we still are struggling to bring a permanent durable Peace to our world.

 

This is why Krisis in Ukraine means a good thing, protected by the archangel Michael, whose iconography is depicted in the Book of Revelation, who is revered in Kiev. WWI was the war to end all wars, and it did!! It was successful in establishing the Supreme Legal Instrument for the establishment of a durable Peace in the 1928 Covenant that outlaws war. When that NEW LAW OF THE WORLD went into force, all those who broke this law were punished by the community who chose to uphold that NEW LAW. Thus the Nazis broke that Law in WWII.

 

The Krisis in WWII meant a good thing. By testing and challenging this New Law of 1928, by violating the Covenant and starting WWII, the arch-violators amongst the Covenant Breakers who broke the Covenant of the 1928 Paris Peace Pact were prosecuted, convicted and executed, such as the Nuremberg 10.

 

Thus as WWI, was the war to end all wars, and it did legally, by legally forever banning it, WWII was the war to prosecute all violators of war, that is WWII was the war to enforce by LAW the end of all wars. Thus we see that natural progression and pattern for the underlying growth toward world peace through Justice, that is rule by law. First the outlawing of war (as WWI legally ended war for all time: 1928 Pact); and next the criminal prosecution and lawful execution of the violators of war. Thus enforcement.

 

Now with WWIII, Force is to become the servant of Justice! WWIII IS THE WAR TO END ALL UNJUST CAUSES FOR WAR!!!

 

That can only be accomplished by the democratic election of the Supreme Tribunal the ultimate and final level of appeal that is the world justice court for all! And the full time maintenance of it via its election and reelection every 5 years or so.

 

If this Supreme Tribunal Jury is duly elected immediately, then the crisis of WWIII has been contained in the Donbas and southern shore of Ukraine corridor to Sevastopol. In other words without waiting for others to act first the Big Four nuclear super powers need to be making arrangements to elect their three representative delegates now. Then the truce shall be declared and the 12 men and women shall meet, and WWIII has served its purpose to elect the Supreme Tribunal Court of World Justice, so that force shall be the servant of justice, and this war is the war to end all unjust causes for war, the way the last world War was the war to end all individual perpetrators of war, and world War one was the war to legally end all wars.

 

If we as mature real human beings rise up now, not to storm the bastille, or waddle our way ignorantly up Capital Hill on Three Kings Day, so to speak, but instead arise to elect the Supreme Tribunal–and re-elect it rhythmically in harmony with human natural cycles as other nations and peoples get in on the act and join in on the benefits of the peace dividend–then WWIV, and WWV, and six, seven, eight, nine and 10, on ad infinitum, will be fought INSIDE THE INNER COURT (adytum) OF THE SUPREME TRIBUNAL instead of out in the streets in the cities and towns like that of the Valley of Hamangog, Ukraine, the bread basket of the world, or the ruin of Syria and Damascus into a bloodstained narco state (Is. 17).

 

Had the Supreme Tribunal been duly elected in 1899, instead of that first plagiarized farce of Nicholas at the Hague (now replaced by something good) WWI would have been fought, settled, disputed, appealed, and peaceably and amicably concluded INSIDE CHAMBERS! No deaths in the field. The failure to duly elect the Supreme Tribunal, on the egalitarian, equal rights, and fundamental humanitarian principles and basic human rights and freedoms, as the Author of it has stated, and as Nicholas’ bastard was an othering of the elites, it failed to remove the unjust causes of war in the first place and we had world War one. ” Trial by combat” by war mongers in the streets!

 

Now after WWI, the winners gloated and were tyrannical immature vindictive bullies against the losers of WWI, and created the oppressive conditions that gave rise to WWII. The US was not even a member of the league of nations, having withdrawn from it, as they have now withdrawn from the ICC by rejecting the Rome Accords. Thus the League failed, the Supreme Tribunal was not duly and properly elected, and we had WWII.

 

Then, they got serious!

 

They hammered out the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, enforced the 1928 Law upon the Nazi violators and Covenant breaking ring-leaders of WWII, set up the Bretton Woods, IMF, UN systems. Now having remedied the lack of humanitarian principles problem, they were still hampered by the colonialism that was in place at the time, the phony borders the winners of WWI imposed upon the losers without justice or consideration of the peaceful inhabitants of those lands, and the abominable totalitarian atheism of the Communist block that falsely imposed an unrealistic spiritual oppression upon our human rights activist brothers and sisters in Russia and other countries who were all born anew in the Spirit, and came out from being driven underground and cast off the “bear” of communism to become the living “OX” of true Orthodox Christianity in the East by 1991, when the wall came tumbling down, and the CSTO was founded.

 

So the UN and all its apparatus has failed! It has failed our home ( planet earth) it has failed our house! Our house is infested with rats and vermin (bad ideas and dysfunctional conduct) left over from the cold war, greedy behind the scenes private deals, and frozen into inaction by the ghosts of Khruschev, Catholic Kennedy, and the Cuban Missile crisis all banging its ugly head against a wall like the migrain pounding sound of a footless shoe. They did the best they could, given the situation at that time. Had the Baha’is not one and all violated all their Covenants and agreements, with the Founders, Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha in 1960, the outcome of the bay of pigs would have been the election of the Supreme Tribunal then around ’63. Thus the blood of the people in Ukraine and WWIII is literally (and legally) upon the hands of the “Hands” who are the first arch violators of the Covenant after WWII, even as the Nuremberg 10 and others, were found by law to be the Arch violators of the Covenant of 1928 after WWI.

 

But then the Baha’is came back to their Covenant–seeing through the distracting tricks of RK and the ” Hands”, regrouping by 1963 in league with the son of Abdu’l-Baha, and began to re-educate the public to duly elect the Supreme Tribunal as they continued to warn about the threat of nuclear catastrophe and to promote nuclear war survival skills and the best remedy for survival, survival by cooperation, by upholding the Covenant, that is the Pact for International Peace. Had that remnant in ’63 regathered from the first group, not yet again, one and all violated their own covenants and instructions forbidding them by Baha’u’llah and Abdu’l-Baha to create an organized religion, by forbidding them to elect any international body separate from the rest of humanity all electing the Supreme Tribunal together–then when the Berlin wall fell by 1991 and Russia was set free by their national belief in Jesus (of the “OX” (Orthodox Christianity)) from Atheism of Communism, had the Baha’is not violated, the Supreme Tribunal would have been permanently established on earth that year with the Big Four Nuclear, now all Christians, super powers as the four permanent members. NATO and CSTO would have been transformed and merged at that time, in time to prevent the 9-11 Krisis.

 

Now being a permanent member means perpetual Jury duty. It is not some ego trip or personal glorification for self-empowerment or self-agrandizment for the members. And it is not the tyrant’s childish thoughts of ruling the world. No! It is public service and the election of living-martyrs we send on behalf of our nations to sacrifice their time and their lives to maintain peace on earth by the just settlement of disputes without and renouncing all recourse to war. The root causes for the proliferation of WMDs will be ameliorated, and the Supreme Tribunal shall bring peace to the world.

 

The fighting is not going to stop! And frankly I for one don’t want it to. It’s the killing and the violence that is going to stop, from the TOP DOWN, from the Supreme Tribunal to Robb Elementary in Uvalde, TX.

 

If you want peace, go to the graveyard, it’s all very peaceful there, because their all dead. Rest in peace– in your grave.

 

No! I for one believe in life, and life abundantly, not death. Through the lively differences of pov and opinion we have growth and we have life! We fight that is, direct and focus our energies, all the time. We compete with each other and our very own selves to be even better. We fight to grow, fight to live, fight for recreation and sport, fight for fun, fight for scientific truth to prevail, fight for human rights, fight for a better way of life, and we fight off the ignorance that keeps people even now, in the dark, to the Covenant of 1928.

 

If the last century of the over 100 years of 3 world wars is even as the valley of the shadow of death–the darkest most horrific brutal mechanised and inhumane wars of mass death and destruction out of all human history–even as Ukraine has now become the valley of death itself–then this Covenant of 1928 is The Great Light that has NOW shined!

 

If you want to get the darkness out of a room you don’t beat it out with a stick, you turn on the light!

 

The Covenant of 1928 empowers all people to turn on that switch!

 

World War 4, 5, 6, 7, etc., will all have to be fought on the bloody open streets of our homes and towns, for as long as we remain heedless and do not direct those problems, differences, and fights, and battles, through the sewer treatment facility, so to speak, of the Supreme Tribunal. In fact every world war that receives a number, and all the little wars in between, are an immediate direct result of us not duly electing the Supreme Tribunal to do its one job, to end war.

 

Conflict and strife are forbidden. Individuals everywhere know of and personally practice the Golden Rule. Murder, killing, violence are all outlawed. These are some of the high standards of belief and conduct we have set for ourselves.

 

Let’s make this sacrificial holocaust already incurred in Ukraine, or in its aftermath with one third (1/3) of mankind to be killed in one hour of thermonuclear war every American city population 100,000 or more targeted by Russian missiles, result in the election of the Supreme Tribunal asap!

 

WWI was the war to end all wars, that it did: legally, 1928 Pact.

 

WWII was the war to end all perpetrators of war, that it did: legally, enforcement of the 1928 Pact: e.g. upon the Nuremberg 10.

 

WWIII is the war to end all the unjust causes for war, that it did: legally, when the Big 4, duly elected the Supreme Tribunal, rightly implementing the correct humanitarian methods its Founder, Originator and Author has suggested.

 

The Author and his duly appointed legal sucessors in each generation have no right to interfere with the freedom of the people and nations on how to impliment the remedy and make actionable the power to act, the way the people and nations understand what they need to go do in conjuction with the current needs of the time.

 

The nations and people are free to choose to be in harmony with the current views freely expressed by the Author and His legal family sucessor or not, but they obviously must recognize the identity of the Author and His legal successor of the family in order for that to actually happen in the first place.

 

May the true Spirit of Hope and Life empower whosoever reads this letter. May the State Constitutions of all 50 States be amended to include the State and its people’s publicly written acknowledgement of upholding the 1928 Pact. May the true meaning, significance, and importance of this Pact (1928, US Law under title 6, effective as of 1929) be taught in all public schools, from preschool to gradschool, so that all school shootings, capital insurrections, and direct military aggressions shall cease, that war, murder, killing, hate, prejudice and violence shall cease; that all people be educated to the LAW of 1928 and that at every level in American and human society we “shall learn war no more”!

The Guardian’s Announcement Upon The Centennial Of The Activation Of The Will And Testament Of The Master Abdu’l-Baha’: Qawl 6, 178 B.E. (11/28/2021)

Sunday, December 5th, 2021

Dear friends,

Allah’u’Abha!

‘Abdu’l-Baha has explained in his many writings that a person is already a Baha’i if they are the personal living embodiment of the Spirit of Baha’u’llah and all His teachings, the primary focus being their personal devotion and understanding of the knowledge of the Oneness of Humanity. He states they are real Baha’is even if they have never heard the word or name of Baha’u’llah. The Baha’i understanding of this truth and verity can be found in Baha’u’llah and the New Era for example.

The same holds true for those souls and communities who are already aware of the name and identity of Baha’u’llah and who are living the perfect embodiment of the Baha’i teachings even if they have never heard the word or the name of the true Covenant and successorship of Baha’u’llah today.

As of the year 2001 AD, when the Divine Standard of the genealogy of Baha’u’llah was first unfurled (signalizing the start of the Golden Age of the Dispensation of Baha’u’llah) we can see by this spiritual criteria the majority of the people of all the world are in fact now, already Baha’i.

Likewise those that self-identify as Baha’is in the various communities throughout the world, are in fact reckoned under the provisions of the Covenant spiritually, even if they have not as yet received the direct outward knowledge of the identity of the Covenant in this day. The proof of this is that they are obviously the living embodiments of the Spirit of the Covenant today as fellow equal heirs in the Kingdom; and that as soon as they hear the news, they accept it without hesitation.

The Centenary of the Covenant (November 28, 2021) marks the opening of the second Epoch of the Golden Age of the Dispensation of Baha’u’llah, the first Epoch being the first Vahid from 2001 until now in 2020/2021 AD. According to Shoghi Effendi:

The “Golden Age of that Dispensation–a Dispensation which, as the Author of the Faith has Himself categorically asserted, must extend over a period of no less than one thousand years, and which will constitute the first stage in a series of Dispensations, to be established by future Manifestations, all deriving their inspiration from the Author of the Baha’i Revelation, and destined to last, in their aggregate, no less than five thousand centuries.” (Citadel of Faith (CF), p. 5)

“In the course of the Golden Age, destined to consummate the Dispensation itself, the banner of the Most Great Peace, promised by its Author, will have been unfurled (September 11-21, 2001, the Autumnal Equinox), the World Baha’i Commonwealth will have emerged in the plenitude of its power and splendor, and the birth and efflorescence of a world civilization, the child of that Peace, will have conferred its inestimable blessings upon all mankind.” (Citadel of Faith (CF), p. 6)

The “birth and efflorescence of a world civilization” is now taking place as promised during the Golden Age of Baha’u’llah. The firm and indestructible foundation of this first centenary of the current appointed phase for the future election of “the Supreme Tribunal” mentioned in the Will and Testament (page 13) has been permanently laid and established. The presence of God (shekinah) upon the earth shall never be altered or removed as embodied in the “House of the Lord” the “House of Justice” as now permanently Tabernacled upon the planet earth as it is in heaven, through the life-giving power of the Covenant.

“This House of Justice enacteth the laws and the government enforceth them. The legislative body must reinforce the executive [the Guardian], the executive [BRANCH–Davidic] must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself.” (Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha, p. 15)

This second Epoch of the Golden Age, into which we are now entering, shall see the News of the Covenant, and the truth of the divine Testament, spread rapidly, like wide-fire, throughout the entire Baha’i world, in a more vigorous and unstoppable fashion, and simultaneously, the world at large will hear more and more about the Baha’i faith in general and the revelation of Baha’u’llah for the Oneness of Humanity in particular.

As the people of the world deepen, knowingly or unknowingly, in the 12 Principles of Baha’u’llah, the Baha’i peoples of the world, are deepening knowingly or unknowingly, in the Spirit of the Covenant, which through the authentic House of Justice (head and body both) directs all the affairs of the faith upon the earth, whether they are aware of that fact outwardly or not.

Shoghi Effendi provides some glimpses and insights into the Golden Age of Baha’u’llah in which we are now living:

“The “Golden Age” is the maturity of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah and it will start with the unification of the world [begun at the 9-11, 2001, the year al-mustaghath]; that marks its beginning… As far as this planet is concerned, there is nothing beyond this Golden Age. Thence its endurance for five hundred thousand years [see Cablegram Jan. 9, 1951: “5000 century cycle], just as the individual States in the U.S.A. united to form one federal government, so the nations of the world will unite to form one federal international government, which is the highest thing for this planet…The Cause is impelled forward through crises. The spread of the Cause precipitates crises, and the crises gives the spread of the Cause a chance to overcome it, and the solution of the crisis through the operation of the Cause facilitates the spread of the Cause. Growth, crisis, and the manifestation of the spirit of the Cause; and then it starts again, further growth, crisis, triumph, etc. The Bab’s Revelation released the forces required to bring about the maturity of the human race. When we enter the Golden Age of this Cause [begun in 2001 AD], then this maturity becomes a fact. The Golden Age is when it yields its fruit. The culmination of a process, the consummation of a cycle…The Cause is like the body of a man, growing continuously, and crises occur which are a sign of growth. There will always be crises even in the Golden age. The Golden Age will witness no decline. It is a new phase–the Golden Age!”

“To re-establish Islam from a spiritual point of view, will be one of the tasks of the Baha’is in the Golden Age. To vindicate the spiritual position of the Imams, not to re-establish the machinery of Islam. It is these crises in the world [such as the current global World War of Terror] that unfold to us the importance of these events.”

“Peter’s position in relation to Christianity and Ali’s in relation to Islam is represented by two institutions in the Cause: the Guardianship and the International House of Justice.”

“The stage of mass conversion will come after the next war [WW III]. Accepting the Cause in the days of the Manifestation when its glory is not yet manifest is one stage, and then conversion in the Golden Age which is very easy. Three stages, a) the Heroic Age: the days of the Bab, Baha’u’llah and the Master; next is b) the Formative Stage, consolidation of the administration [establishment of the IBC/UHJ in 1991]: “the last and crowning stage in the erection of the framework of the Administrative Order” ; and then the Golden Age and mass conversion.” (CF, P.6)

The catastrophe is inevitable and needs be to purge the world. It will be something the world has never seen and will effect every nation, country, class and creed. The world has high blood pressure and this will be the blood letting. Blood will run everywhere. It will purge the world and then cement the remnants together…The new World Order is the child [see Isaiah 11] and it will mature into the world civilization. There will be no decline in the future. It will be like a spiral, ever upwards. There may be moments that stop, but no decline. This is the Day that is not followed by night–the Golden Age!” (Shoghi Effendi to May Maxwell, 1937; and to Gladys and Elmer Beasley, 1953)

Greetings this blessed day in the Golden Age!

Qudrat 12/November 15: The Baha’i Guardian’s Letter To The President Of Iran

The Baha’i Guardian’s Letter to The President of Iran

 

12/13/2017 – Masa’il 2, 174 B.E.

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Dear friends: where old Jerusalem was called “the City of the Covenant” in ancient days, ‘Abdu’l-Baha designated NYC USA as the City of the Covenant upon his arrival in 1912 on April 11th (4-11). The Times Square Attack coming in the wake of official Trump announcement of Jerusalem as Capital City for the US Embassy for Israel (thus signaling Palestinian State Issues) motivates me to share this important letter from more recent days. I remain yours, your servant, Neal.

“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Rev. 22:19 KJV).

 

Dear All,

 

When we predicted the attacks on NYC, we explained that the prophecy is not the cause of the attacks. The cause is the double standard that the US has against the Muslim peoples. In 1991 Saddam Hussein made the key issue of this double standard the Palestine State Issue. When Saddam focused on the Palestinian State issue then Usama b. Laden joined up with him (see Newsweek, January 1999 attached below).

 

As the Palestinians were denied their statehood on 9-11 of the year 2000 — a year later to the day is the 9-11 event. The current issue of the Palestine State is extremely relevant and important to both what is about to happen next and when. Thus the scriptures state: “I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spake like a dragon” (Rev. 13:11 KJV).

 

Dr. Jensen explains that the dragon is Islam, and therefore this second beast is the Islamic power that is left in the world today. It has two horns, which are the two divisions of Islam into Sunni and Shi’ite. It is like a lamb because it is weak. However it states that this Islamic power: “doeth great wonders, so that it maketh fire come down from heaven in the sight of men” (Rev. 13:13 KJV).

 

Another way to say sight is “vision” — This refers to the television where all the people saw the attacks by Jihadist Muslims against NYC and the 9-11 on live television in the sight of men. We gave these predictions based on these infallible prophecies many years before these events came to pass. We stated who would do it, why they would do it, where they would do it, and when then would do it. These are the words of the prophecy of the book of Revelation:

 

“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Rev. 22:19 KJV).

Dr. Jensen explains:

 

“The “fire” which comes “down from heaven” is the thermonuclear war which the Arab nations will trigger by THEIR ACTIONS, in response to the big bully. ” http://entrybytroops.uhj.net/revelation13.html

 

In order to win our stations as active Baha’i guides and teachers, it is essential that we ALL become educated to the FACTS and to the TRUTH as one voice in the NEW SONG, the song of the Lamb on these teaching points which are spoken of in the Book of Revelation, lest “God shall take away his part” as Jesus said, “if thy eye offend thee, pluck it out,” etc.

 

Now the reason many are suspicious that the US government had foreknowledge of the 9-11 before it happened is because they did: FROM US!! We sent them all the data and facts they needed to prevent these things. They did not heed our warnings; and the events happened just as we foretold. Now more is yet to come, in aggression between the East and West, between Muslim, Jew and Christian, as they remain stubborn, and fail to implement our guidance for the amicable solutions to these root problems.

 

For this reason, at the request of many of the friends, I am re-posting, some important facts of the connection of the Palestine State issue to the motive of the East against the West in the current war, and how these Middle Eastern issues pertain not only to the problem which is the cause of the Islamic attacks again the west, but also to the ultimate solution which is issuing forth from the Covenant of Baha’u’llah and the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha.

 

Your servant,

 

Neal,

Guardian.

UN Israel-Palestine Sept 2011

 

This September 2011, the Palestinian State issue is scheduled to come before the UN.

 

The last time this was set and thwarted was Sept 11, 2000. A year later on that very day was the 9-11. This is the underlying reason for that day as we have said previously.

 

The following is a significant article form the NY Times about this: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/03/world/middleeast/03mideast.html

“We are facing a diplomatic-political tsunami that the majority of the public is unaware of and that will peak in September,” said Ehud Barak, Israel’s defense minister”

 

To further deepen on this issue quickly is “Israel’s Story in Maps”. Looking at the history through these maps with brief explanations will orient anyone quickly to easily understand the key points of this issue since Baha’u’llah’s arrival in the Holy Land to the present day.

Four pdf documents at this link: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Facts+About+Israel/Israel+in+Maps/

Lastly, it should be pointed out that when we calculated the dates of 9-11 2000-2001, we were looking to see what was to occur at that time.

 

It was September, 13, 2000 that Palestine was to face their crucial deadline. http://www.jcpa.org/art/becker2.htm

 

However, the UN meeting Millennium Summit Sept. 8, 2000 crushed these hopes forcing the Palestinian National Council (PNC) to cancel declaring its independent statehood on September 11, 2000 two days before the deadline.

 

This was thus all thwarted at that pivotal date (9-11-2000) and then gas thrown on the fire when Arial Sharon went up on the temple mount, in September 2000 setting off the second Intifada also called the al-Aqsa Intifada. One year later to the day was the 9-11, 2001.

Simultaneous with the failure of the Palestine State on September 11, 2000 was this official announcement from Al-Sabah, the official publication of the Palestinian Authority, dated September 11, 2000 which declared: “We will advance and declare a general intifada for Jerusalem. The time for the intifada has arrived, the time for intifada has arrived, the time for Jihad has arrived.” http://www.jcpa.org/jl/vp470.htm

In Israel, Time for Peace Offer May Run Out 

By ETHAN BRONNER

Published: April 2, 2011

JERUSALEM: With revolutionary fervor sweeping the Middle East, Israel is under mounting pressure to make a far-reaching offer to the Palestinians or face a United Nations vote welcoming the State of Palestine as a member whose territory includes all of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem.

 

The Palestinian Authority has been steadily building support for such a resolution in September, a move that could place Israel into a diplomatic vise. Israel would be occupying land belonging to a fellow United Nations member, land it has controlled and settled for more than four decades and some of which it expects to keep in any two-state solution.

 

“We are facing a diplomatic-political tsunami that the majority of the public is unaware of and that will peak in September”, said Ehud Barak, Israel’s defense minister, at a conference in Tel Aviv last month. “It is a very dangerous situation, one that requires action”. He added, “Paralysis, rhetoric, inaction will deepen the isolation of Israel.”

With aides to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thrashing out proposals to the Palestinians, President Shimon Peres is due at the White House on Tuesday to meet with President Obama and explore ways out of the bind. The United States is still uncertain how to move the process forward, according to diplomats here.

 

Israel’s offer is expected to include transfer of some West Bank territory outside its settlements to Palestinian control and may suggest a regional component, an international conference to serve as a response to the Arab League peace initiatives.

 

But Palestinian leaders, emboldened by support for their statehood bid, dismiss the expected offer as insufficient and continue to demand an end to settlement building before talks can begin.

 

“We want to generate pressure on Israel to make it feel isolated and help it understand that there can be no talks without a stop to settlements.” said Nabil Shaath, who leads the foreign affairs department of Fatah, the main party of the Palestinian Authority. “Without that, our goal is membership in the United Nations General Assembly in September.”

 

Israeli, Palestinian and Western officials interviewed on the current impasse, most of them requesting anonymity, expressed an unusual degree of pessimism about a peaceful resolution. All agreed that the turmoil across the Middle East had prompted opposing responses from Israel and much of the world.

 

Israel, seeing the prospect of even more hostile governments as its neighbors, is insisting on caution and time before taking any significant steps. It also wants to build in extensive long-term security guarantees in any two-state solution, but those inevitably infringe the sovereignty of a Palestinian state.

 

The international community tends to draw the opposite conclusion. Foreign Secretary William Hague of Britain, for example, said last week that one of the most important lessons to be learned from the Arab Spring was that “legitimate aspirations cannot be ignored and must be addressed.” He added, referring to Israeli-Palestinian talks, “It cannot be in anyone’s interests if the new order of the region is determined at a time of minimum hope in the peace process.”

 

The Palestinian focus on September stems not only from the fact that the General Assembly holds its annual meeting then. It is also because Prime Minister Salam Fayyad announced in September 2009 that his government would be ready for independent statehood in two years and that Mr. Obama said last September that he expected the framework for an independent Palestinian state to be declared in a year.

 

Mr. Obama did not indicate what the borders of that state would be, assuming they would be determined through direct negotiations. But with Israeli-Palestinian talks broken off months ago and the Middle East in the process of profound change, many argue that outside pressure is needed.

 

Germany, France and Britain say negotiations should be based on the 1967 lines with equivalent land swaps, exactly what the Netanyahu government rejects because it says it predetermines the outcome.

 

“Does the world think it is going to force Israel to declare the 1967 lines and giving up Jerusalem as a basis for negotiation?” asked a top Israeli official who spoke on condition of anonymity. ”That will never happen.”

 

While the Obama administration has referred in the past to the 1967 lines as a basis for talks, it has not decided whether to back the European Union, the United Nations and Russia “the other members of the so-called quartet” in declaring them the starting point, diplomats said. The quartet meets on April 15 in Berlin.

 

Israel, which has settled hundreds of thousands of Jews inside the West Bank and East Jerusalem, acknowledges that it will have to withdraw from much of the land it now occupies there. But it hopes to hold onto the largest settlement blocs and much of East Jerusalem as well as the border to the east with Jordan and does not want to enter into talks with the other side’s position as the starting point.

 

That was true even before its closest ally in the Arab world, President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, was driven from power, helping fuel protest movements that now roil other countries, including Jordan, which has its own peace agreement with Israel.

 

“Whatever we put forward has to be grounded in security arrangements because of what is going on regionally,” said Zalman Shoval, one of a handful of Netanyahu aides drawing up the Israeli proposal that may be delivered as a speech to the United States Congress in May. “We are facing the rebirth of the eastern front as Iran grows strong. We have to secure the Jordan Valley. And no Israeli government is going to move tens of thousands of Israelis from their homes quickly.”

 

Those Israelis live in West Bank settlements, the source of much of the disagreement not only with the Palestinians but with the world. Not a single government supports Israel’s settlements. The Palestinians say the settlements are proof that the Israelis do not really want a Palestinian state to arise since they are built on land that should go to that state.

 

“All these years, the main obstacle to peace has been the settlements”, Nimer Hammad, a political adviser to President Abbas, said. “They always say, ”but you never made it a condition of negotiations before.” And we say, “that was a mistake.” ”

 

The Israelis counter that the real problem is Palestinian refusal to accept openly a Jewish state here and ongoing anti-Israeli incitement and praise of violence on Palestinian airwaves.

 

Another central obstacle to the establishment of a State of Palestine has been the division between the West Bank and Gaza, the first run by the Palestinian Authority and the second by Hamas. Lately, President Abbas has sought to bridge the gap, asking to go to Gaza to seek reconciliation through an agreed interim government that would set up parliamentary and presidential elections.

 

But Hamas, worried it would lose such elections and hopeful that the regional turmoil could work in its favor “that Egypt, for example, might be taken over by its ally, the Muslim Brotherhood “ has reacted coolly.

 

Efforts are still under way to restart peace talks but if, as expected, negotiations do not resume, come September the Palestinian Authority seems set to go ahead with plans to ask the General Assembly to accept it as a member. Diplomats involved in the issue say most countries “more than 100” are expected to vote yes, meaning it will pass.

What happens then?

 

Some Palestinian leaders say relations with Israel would change.

 

“We will re-examine our commitments toward Israel, especially our security commitments”, suggested Hanna Amireh, who is on the 18-member ruling board of the Palestine Liberation Organization, referring to cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli troops. “The main sense about Israel is that we are fed up.”

 

Mr. Shaath said Israel would then be in daily violation of the rights of a fellow member state and diplomatic and legal consequences could follow, all of which would be painful for Israel.

In the Haaretz newspaper on Thursday, Ari Shavit, who is a political centrist, drew a comparison between 2011 and the biggest military setback Israel ever faced, the 1973 war.

 

He wrote that “2011 is going to be a diplomatic 1973” because a Palestinian state will be recognized internationally. “Every military base in the West Bank will be contravening the sovereignty of an independent U.N. member state.” He added, “A diplomatic siege from without and a civil uprising from within will grip Israel in a stranglehold.”

 

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:

Correction: April 10, 2011

 

A Diplomatic Memo article last Sunday, about the growing possibility that, even without an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, the United Nations General Assembly might approve a resolution in September granting statehood to Palestinians on Israeli-controlled land referred incompletely to the options available to the United States for blocking such a resolution. It has no veto power in the General Assembly, as the article stated, but such a resolution would first require a recommendation from the Security Council, where the United States could exercise a veto.

 

Arabs resigned to delay of Palestinian state

September 11, 2000
Web posted at: 8:10 AM EDT (1210 GMT)

 

CAIRO, Egypt (Reuters) — Arabs grimly acknowledged on Monday that Palestinians had little choice but to defer their statehood dream, but some saw peace talks with Israel as futile.

 

Few Arab governments commented on Sunday’s widely expected decision by the PLO Central Council to postpone declaring an independent state that Palestinian President Yasser Arafat had vowed to proclaim as early as September 13.

 

The official Arab silence seemed to signal quiet relief at a move that allows more time for a negotiated final peace with Israel and defuses prospects for violent confrontation.

 

“We are determined to do what needs to be done to save the peace process and, therefore, regain our land and rights,” Palestinian Planning Minister Nabil Shaath told Egyptian radio, adding that the council would review the issue on November 15.

 

November 15 is the anniversary of a declaration of statehood which Arafat made from exile in Algiers in 1988.

 

Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said the delay was a vote for the peace process. “We hope that we can conclude an agreement this year and with that we can have our own state by agreement. The decision last night was to recommit ourselves to peace as a strategic option,” he told Israel’s Army Radio.

 

Sign of weakness 

 

Yet many Arabs viewed the PLO decision as an expression of Arab and Palestinian feebleness in the face of an expansionist Israel unwilling to concede basic Palestinian rights, particularly sovereignty over Arab East Jerusalem.

 

In Damascus, two radical groups — the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine — criticized the delay.

 

“Israel wants the establishment of an unarmed Palestinian state which is deprived of the right to sign any defensive deals with any of its Arab neighboring countries in addition to the cancellation of Palestinian refugees’ rights to return to their homes,” DFLP leader Nayef Hawatmeh told Reuters.

 

“If Arafat had announced the Palestinian state…it would not have been like (northern) Cyprus that nobody recognizes except Turkey,” grumbled Egypt’s state-owned al-Akhbar daily, arguing that 180 countries would endorse a Palestinian state.

 

“But, as usual, Israel prevented this with threats (of retaliation) in the event of unilateral Palestinian action and the United States is supporting Israel on that,” it said.

 

Egyptian analyst Tahseen Bashir, once adviser to the late President Anwar Sadat, said the PLO decision was weak.

 

“What has been implemented of the (1993) Oslo accords does not give the Palestinians sovereignty over their land and Israel controls the Palestinian economy,” the former diplomat said.

 

“These defects made it difficult for the Palestinians to declare their independence without Israeli agreement.”

 

In Jordan, which hosts some 1.4 million registered Palestinian refugees, residents of the sprawling Baqa’a refugee camp accused their leaders of caving in to U.S. pressure and some called for violence to seize Palestinian rights.

 

“The Palestinian leadership fixed a date for the declaration of the Palestinian state, but did not go ahead with it. This is a sign of cowardice,” complained Fayez Ahmed, 55.

 

No gain for refugees

 

In Ain al-Hilweh, Lebanon’s largest Palestinian refugee camp, many said delaying statehood by months, or even years, would make little difference to their 52-year-old plight.

They said that without Israeli recognition, proclaiming a sovereign country would be meaningless, though some spoke wistfully of their need for state protection, however symbolic.

 

“We want peace,” said 70-year-old Ibrahim Moghrabi, sitting on the pavement outside his tiny tin-roofed grocery shop.

 

“This delay does not harm us in any way and if it means that we are giving peace another chance, then we support it.”

 

Abu Nasser Hussein, an elderly tailor who hails from Safad, in Galilee, scoffed at the idea of declaring a state that would not lead to the return of land occupied by Israel since 1948.

“I don’t support this state business if it doesn’t mean that every inch of our land will come back to us,” he said. “The Israelis and the Arabs are conspiring against us. We know that if Abu Ammar (Arafat) had declared a state it would not have had any meaning.”

Aytaf Hamed, clutching her baby daughter, said she craved to belong to a state. “Palestinians live a very hard life in Lebanon, we’re lucky if we get work as garbage collectors.

 

“My husband is unemployed although he’s an expert builder and I have to work to support our kids. We need a state to protect us and to end the humiliation and misery we live in.”

An estimated 365,000 Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, where they are denied many civil rights, barred from 70 professions and regarded as a potential source of violence.

Saddam Warned of WTC Attack Before 9/11, Praised Bin Laden Afterwards

NEWSMAX | 3-28-04 | Carl Limbacher.

 

Why did the Bush administration immediately suspect that Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks when there was no evidence of any connection, as Richard Clarke and other Bush critics maintain?

 

Maybe it was because there was indeed evidence, very dramatic evidence, in fact – in the form of warnings in the state-run Iraqi press that such an attack was coming, along with praise for Osama bin Laden and his kamikaze hijackers in the days after the World Trade Center was destroyed.

 

Less than two months before 9/11, the state-controlled Iraqi newspaper “Al-Nasiriya” carried a column headlined, “America, An Obsession Called Osama Bin Ladin.” [July 21, 2001] In the piece, Baath Party writer Naeem Abd Muhalhal predicted that bin Laden would attack the U.S. “with the seriousness of the Bedouin of the desert about the way he will try to bomb the Pentagon after he destroys the White House.”

 

The same state-approved column also insisted that bin Laden “will strike America on the arm that is already hurting,” and that the U.S. “will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra every time he hears his songs” – an apparent reference to the Sinatra classic, “New York, New York.” [Two 9/11 families were awarded over $100 million last May by U.S. District Court Judge Harold Baer based on this and other evidence that Iraq was involved in 9/11]

 

Saddam’s threats of a 9/11-style attack before 9/11 weren’t limited to that single report. In 1992, his son Uday used an editorial in Babil, the newspaper he ran, to warn of Iraqi kamikaze attacks inside America, saying, “Does the United States realize the meaning of every Iraqi becoming a missile that can cross countries and cities?”

 

Then in the late 1990s, according to UPI, “a cable to Saddam from the chief of Iraqi intelligence was transmitted by Baghdad Radio. The message read, ‘We will chase [Americans] to every corner at all times. No high tower of steel will protect them against the fire of truth.'”

 

Coincidence? Perhaps.

 

But after the 9/11 attacks, Saddam became the only world leader to offer praise for bin Laden, even as other terrorist leaders, like Yassir Arafat, went out of their way to make a show of sympathy to the U.S. by donating blood to 9/11 victims on camera.

 

The day after the attacks, in quotes picked up by Agence France Press, Saddam proclaimed that “America is reaping the thorns planted by its rulers in the world.”

 

“There is hardly a place (in the world) that does not have a memorial symbolizing the criminal actions committed by America against its natives,” AFP quoted the Iraqi dictator complaining, based on reports in the Iraqi News agency.

 

After excoriating the U.S. for ending World War II by using nuclear weapons, and for its involvement in Vietnam, Saddam gloated, “[He] who does not want to reap evil must not sow it, and [he] who considers the lives of his people precious must remember that the lives of the people in the world are precious also.”

 

“The American peoples should remember that no one ever crossed the Atlantic carrying weapons to be used against them. They are the ones who crossed the Atlantic carrying death, destruction and ugly exploitation to the whole world.”

 

A day later Saddam told visiting Tunisian Foreign Minister Habib ben Yahya, “America brought the hatred of the world upon itself.”

 

For his part Uday flat-out praised the 9/11 attacks, saying, “These were courageous operations carried out by young Arabs and Muslims,” according to quotes picked up by the Saudi daily Asharq al-Awsat.

 

As Richard Clarke and his fans in the Democrat-media complex report in ominous tones that President Bush ordered him to launch an unwarranted investigation into the 9/11-Iraq connection, it’s worth remembering how much Iraq had done justify that order.

 

THIS IS PRIOR TO 2001:

 

Saddam + Bin Laden? 

It would be a marriage made in hell. And America’s two enemies are courting. 

Authors:  Christopher Dickey, Gregory L. Vistica and Russell Watson
with Joseph Contreras in Jerusalem

January 11, 1999

NEWSWEEK
Volume 133, Issue 2, pages: 34-36

IN THE NO-FLY ZONES OF northern and southern Iraq, Saddam Hussein’s gunners blindly fired surface-to-air missiles at patrolling American and British warplanes. In Yemen, terrorists seized a group of British Commonwealth and American tourists, and four of the hostages died in a shootout. In Tel Aviv, the U.S. Embassy abruptly closed down after receiving a terrorist threat. Perhaps it was just a typical week in the Middle East. But in a region where no one puts much faith in blind coincidence, last week’s conjunction of Iraqi anti-aircraft fire and terrorism aimed at the countries that had just bombed Iraq convinced some that a new conspiracy was afoot.

 

Here’s what is known so far: Saddam Hussein, who has a long record of supporting terrorism, is trying to rebuild Ms intelligence network overseas – assets that would allow him to establish a terrorism network. U.S. sources say he is reaching out to Islamic terrorists, including some who may be linked to Osama bin Laden, the wealthy Saudi exile accused of masterminding the bombing of two U.S. embassies in Africa last summer. U.S. intelligence has had reports of contacts between low-level agents. Saddam and bin Laden have interests – and enemies – in common. Both men want U.S. military forces out of Saudi Arabia. Bin Laden has been calling for all-out war on Americans, using as his main pretext Washington’s role in bombing and boycotting Iraq. Now bin Laden is engaged in something of a public-relations offensive, having granted recent interviews, one for NEWSWEEK (following story). He says “any American who pays taxes to his government” is a legitimate target.

 

Saddam’s terrorism capability is still small-time, according to senior U.S. officials. “He’s nowhere close to the level of the Iranians or Hezbollah,” says one. But terrorism may be Iraq’s growth industry. An Arab intelligence officer who knows Saddam personally and stays in touch with his clandestine services predicts that “very soon you will be witnessing large-scale terrorist activity run by the Iraqis.” The attacks, he says, would be aimed at American and British targets in the Islamic world. Washington is somewhat skeptical, but this source says plans have already been put into action under three “false flags”: one Palestinian, one Iranian and one “the AL Qaeda apparatus,” the loose collection of terrorists who receive bin Laden’s patronage. “All these organizations have representatives in Baghdad,” says the Arab intelligence officer.

 

According to this source, Saddam expected last month’s American and British bombing campaign to go on much longer than it did. The dictator believed that as the attacks continued, indignation would grow in the Muslim world, making his terrorism offensive both harder to trace and more effective. With acts of terror contributing to chaos in the region, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait might feel less inclined to support Washington. Saddam’s long-term strategy, according to several sources, is to bully or cajole Muslim countries into breaking the embargo against Iraq, without waiting for the United Nations to lift it formally. With the sudden end of the allied air offensive, the Iraqi challenge to U.S. and British overflights in the exclusion zones may have been Saddam’s way of keeping the regional pot boiling.

 

Early last week, an Iraqi air-defense battery fired three surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) at U.S. warplanes over the northern zone. Two days later, the Iraqis launched several SAMs at four British Tornado jets over the southern zone. The allies responded with smart bombs that damaged some of the mobile launchers. The Iraqis announced they would continue to fire at allied planes over both zones, but a Pentagon spokesman said there was a “very low likelihood” they would hit anything.

 

Apart from wanting to taunt Bill Clinton, Saddam has good reason for challenging the no-fly zones, especially the one in the south. The Iraqi opposition in the region is mostly Shute Muslim, supported by fellow believers in Iran, which has already trained thousands of Iraqi exiles to fight in units known as the Badr Brigades. Saddam’s nightmare, however unlikely, is that Iran and the United States will combine to overthrow him, using the southern Shiites as foot soldiers.

 

Tensions in the Middle East probably will rise sharply in the coming year, and not just because of Saddam. The governments of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and Iran have all been hobbled by ill leaders or political squabbling. The Arab-Israeli peace process is stalled again, with Israel facing an election in May – just when the Palestinians threaten a unilateral declaration of statehood. The threat to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv seems to have had no connection to Saddam or bin Laden. Intelligence sources said an odd collection of Iranians, Armenians, Russian gangsters and members of the militant Hamas movement were supposed to be planning a strike against the seaside embassy building. “Our guys didn’t put a lot of credence in it,” says a U.S. counterterrorism expert. But American officials in Israel have reason to be edgy. When the CIA was assigned to help implement the latest Arab Israeli peace agreement, the name of the agency’s station chief – who has an office in the embassy – became public. Now a U.S. official says the station chief and his case officers are being watched by terrorists. Revealing the names “created a possible target,” complains a White House aide.

 

Though it was too early to know for sure, the CIA suspected that bin Laden had a hand in the abduction of 16 foreign tourists in Yemen last week. Four of the hostages – three Britons and an Australian were killed when the police intervened, and two others, including an American woman, were wounded. Most kidnappings in Yemen are strictly cash-and-carry affairs, in which tribal desperadoes raise money without harming their captives. But these kidnappers, who came from a Yemeni group calling itself Islamic Jihad, demanded that the authorities release two of their leaders, who have ties to bin Laden. And they said they were protesting Western “aggression” against Iraq.

 

The idea of an alliance between Iraq and bin Laden is alarming to the West (what if Baghdad gave the terrorists highly portable biological weapons?). Saddam may think he’s too good for such an association. Jerold Post, a political psychologist and government consultant who has profiled Saddam, says he thinks of himself as a world leader like Castro or Tito, not a thug. “I’m skeptical that Saddam would resort to terrorism,” says a well-informed administration official. “He can do a lot of other things to screw with us.” But Saddam is famous for doing whatever it takes to stay in power. Now that the United States has made his removal from office a national objective, he knows he is fighting for his life. “The worst thing you can do is to wound him, let him know you meant to kill him, and then let him survive,” says an Iraqi Shiite leader in London. As his own people know only too well, Saddam is quite capable of fighting dirty.

 

A New Mideast Axis?

 

While Saddam turned the sides over Iraq into a shooting gallery, bin Laden ran a terrorist training camp near Kandahar.

 

Saddam + Bin Laden?   Newsweek article from January 11, 1999 

On January 11, 1999, an article appeared in Newsweek titled “Saddam + Bin Laden?” The sub headline declared, “It would be a marriage made in hell. And America’s two enemies are courting.” This article, which matter of factly points out that Saddam Hussein has a long history of supporting terrorism, says Saddam is now reaching out to Islamic terrorists including those associated with Osama bin Laden according to U.S. intelligence reports. The article also points out that, in the prior week alone, several surface-to-air missiles were fired at U.S. and British planes patrolling the no-fly zones and that Saddam is now fighting for his life now that the U.S. has made his removal from office a national objective.

Taqlid/Blind Imitation

TAQLID / BLIND IMITATION

In training in the arts and sciences–or even in children learning language–students, trainees, children tend to (at first) imitate their parents and teachers (and later they innovate for their own uniqueness of performance and expression). But the Manifestations of God have commanded a direct and immediate experience of God for each and every individual. In fact this is the second principle of the Baha’i Faith. Islam means to submit or surrender to the everlasting Covenant of God–which is the Will of God– which means NOT performing taqlid. Taqlid means to “collar yourself” to blind imitation (like a dog or animal–thus de-humanizing) which is forbidden. Those who collar/taqlid are not submissive in surrendering their will to God alone–and are NOT being independant of all save God. This is why the Kingdom of God is the government of God and not of man. No man shall govern or rule upon another–but God himself shall be their king and ruler–meaning that the people are in relationship with God and are AGAINST the Incarnate-Lie of mere men to whom they perform taqlid. It is forbidden to perform taqlid with the Manifestations of God, the Center of the Covenant, the Guardians, the UHJ or any one. Even God in our relationship with him prefers free will exercise of true love–and does not make puppets of us. Fealty and loyalty out of LOVE is NOT taqlid.

The only true religion in the world that preserves this fealty and loyalty of true love by informed consent and free will is the real faith under the provisions of the Covenant. The real guardian of the Baha’i faith guards us from taqlid, and allows the free people to live openly with God, in God, before God, after God and all in all of God. There is no time in the world of God. Everything is now. While this teaching may be found hidden and concealed in all of the Revelations to greater and lesser degrees–it is only practiced–and explicitly revealed as the “unsealed choice wine”– in the real world via the Kingdom now upon the earth (through the power of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah as delineated in the provisions of the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha)–the sine qua non of which is the genuine authentic living Davidic king seated upon the throne of King David that is to last for ever. This is different from religions per se. The Jewish, Christian, Islamisms and Baha’i “religions” all preserve a place in their Holy Texts for the throne of King David and the one seated upon it as an important personage and welcomed member of their respective holy communities. In reality the Revelation of Baha’u’llah is NOT a religion per se, but the government from God for the earth–that is international for the globe. In this free and open society–God is ever present for the direct and immediate experience of the people. In the presence of God there is no crime, no poverty, no hurt, no disease, no ills, etc. The people are happy. They are uniquely themselves–and not in blind imitations of any others. They reflect God purely as they know and understand the divine and transcendent mind that immanently animates us all. They understand the relationship of the organic teachers of God–the primordial educators–who are the founders of the progressive civilization that naturally arise from the Will of God amongst us within the world of being. Not enough can be said about this All-Important Theme. They are not coerced under the pressure of manmade “rulers” or manmade “over-lordships.” No! They are free people even as the Davidic King is a free man. They are enlightened and in contact with the divine even as each and everyone one of us has this capacity: for “in my soul I am free!” As God loves those who work in groups–they come together to form societies and projects. The throne of King David is the sign of international peace through real justice. It is not a taqlid– nor is it a lordship controlling or intimidating peoples as do the manmade governments, “benevolent or malevolent dictatorships”, “One-man rule” or “totalitarian states” or any other earthly construct.

The Kitab-i-‘Ahd states that the “government of the earth is vouchsafed unto them”–The “THEM” are the current monarchies, kings, and rulerships of the world. This includes the monarchy (now as exilarchate) of King David’s throne-line as well. Baha’u’llah states however that the “hearts” of the kings and rulers “belong to God.” The “Baha’is” were never meant to rule or govern the material earth–it is the Covenant-breakers who lust for worldly earthly power and who have disseminated these LIES!!! God has already allowed for the rulers and monarchs and kings and governments of the nations to be populated by the leaderships of the peoples and tribes. He vouchsafes their jurisdictions and confirms their authorities as contingent upon the Most Great Justice. If they go against God they will be subjected to troubles and punishments that naturally arise from wrong governance. If they accept the guidance of God and spiritualize they will undoubtedly prosper (as has the British monarchy that was fair to Baha’u’llah) and win the love of all the peoples. The Davidic Kingship is also one of these throne-lines promised and preserved by God that is subject to His laws, under His command, and should it deviate “a hair’s breath” (W&T, p. 9) from the natural Will of the Kind Lord, it and that one will see great suffering and ruin just as any other king (see Pslams 89 for more)–but to David the promise shall continue for ever.

Holy Day: The Twelfth Day Of Ridvan, Jamal 5, 174 B.E. (5/2/2017)

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Dear Friends,

 

Why is it that the majority of those who fight for material control of this world also hold to the religion of the physical resurrection of their flesh?

 

Obviously one is a delusional belief system, and the other is antisocial behavior (such as war and murder for oil, control and power). It is probably true that thoughts and deeds cycle around each other to perpetuate both wrong thinking and crimes against the dignity of other human beings. Look at South Sudan. Oil was found there. Now instead of those people being rich, and well to do, and having a better world, their lives have been made miserable by the warmongers and oil addicts. Thus at the root of bad words, bad thoughts, and bad deeds–we find bad religion; that which is anti-human and not humane. According to ‘Abdu’l-Baha:

 

“My name is Abdu’l-Baha… servitude to all the human race my perpetual religion.”

 

The only “revolution” that is going to solve all the problems of human suffering in this world is “the revolution of the human heart”. Baha’u’llah inaugurated this revolution on April 21, 1863.

 

This revolution cannot take place–Baha’u’llah tells us–unless we see the truth with our own eyes and not through the eyes of our neighbor. Ah hah! That means we need two things to accept the truth–the intellect to recognize the truth, and a heart that is pure to accept it.

 

Facts. The pure of heart go by the facts. This is why Jesus said to seek the truth and truth will set you free. We seek the truth when it is the truth that we love. And here Jesus specifically means to seek the truth of God and the truth of the Bible: the truth of the Kingdom of God. Not be fooled by lies, mythologies, and theologies of the clergy class or preistcraft. This is the full “revolution of the human heart”, accompanied by body, mind and soul–to love God above all else with all our heart, all our mind and all our soul. Not blindly hide in a meaningless pile of lies, told to us by others, who also were either so deceived or who knowingly chose to deceive others. No. Someone has to stop the viscous cycle. Someone has to step forth and not go along with the lemmings to the slaughter. The first one to do this in our age is Baha’u’llah, then ‘Abdu’l-Baha, then you and me, and all of us today. Long ago it was Jesus who was the first, and then another dozen apostles, then maybe 500 more, and lastly his establisher Paul. But now there isn’t one single true Christian remaining in all the world who both knows the whole truth and loves the whole truth, and nothing but the whole truth. In order for God to help us–we must have a love for the truth in our own pure heart first and foremost. Therefore Jesus has returned to fix that problem.

 

Attached is a “Letter to a Member of the Easter Faith.” For those who may not know, “the Easter Faith” isn’t a faith in Jesus, or God or the Kingdom, or of the after-life in the spiritual world to come, but a malignant obsession with the non-Biblical physical resurrection of the flesh of their own body (to re-inhabit this material world). In different forms–resurrection, re-incarnation, metempsychosis, etc– it dates back to Ishtar (Easter) of Babylonia and is a malignant obsession with living in this material world in a material body. It has nothing to do with the spiritual progression of the soul in both this life and the next–through all the innumerable worlds of God. No. Instead it is a deception that derails the majority of people from being able to advance in the Kingdom (which is here and now in both this world and the next) freely and unalloyed. This fulfills what is written in the scripture:

 

“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie (2 Thess. 2: 10-11 NIV).

 

Baha’u’llah states:

 

“This ‘oppression’ is the essential feature of every Revelation. Unless it cometh to pass, the Sun of Truth will not be made manifest. For the break of the morn of divine guidance must needs follow the darkness of the night of error.” (Iqan, p. 31)

 

Now that all the Covenants of God have all been broken by the people, and the darkness of error has spread over the minds of all the people deceived by pompous leaders who hijacked God’s original true religions–the time for the “break of the morn of divine guidance” is come–and we could all use just such a break.

 

Best Wishes, this Ridvan, and Happy Ridvan to All!!

LETTER TO A MEMBER OF THE EASTER FAITH

 

Dear Dr. F.,

 

According to the Greek New Testament, Joseph of Aramathea placed the corpse of Jesus in a tomb north of the city. His body did die and he did not “swoon” as you say. The apostles then took Jesus’s corpse out of the tomb and mummified it during the prescribed 40 days process in the town of Emmaus. As their first Act, in the Acts of the Apostles, they then buried Jesus’s mummified corpse under the wall of the city at the place where the road to Emmaus came into Jerusalem at the wall. This is the exact spot of the current location of the church of the Holy Sepulcher and Jesus mummified corpse remains there to this day. When the Church of the Holy Sepulcher was attacked in the middle ages, the Christian Knights retook the city and preserved the mummified corpse of Jesus in a leaden-lined casket filled with preservatives that they re-interred in the sacred Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

 

Like the Bab’i and Baha’i martyrs (10,000 + 20,000 respectively) true Christian martyrs were willing to sacrifice their lives because they knew that Jesus was the Universal Manifestation of God, the Herald of the Kingdom, and is therefore the universal forerunner (as the “son”) for Baha’u’llah (the glory of the Father), the Davidic King who is seated upon the throne of King David that continues today in the great-great grandson of Baha’u’llah, the current living Davidic King who is the president of Baha’u’llah’s Universal House of Justice (the House of the Lord–prophesied in the Bible). No true Christian ever died for the lie that the fleshy body of Jesus resurrected. Jesus said in John 6:63 that his “flesh” was of no avail–and that his words were “spirit and life”. It was only later after Rome became “Christian”–loyal to one sect only–that this mainstream new majority killed off all the true Christians who refused to go along with the lie of the resurrection of the flesh. The original martyrs of true Christianity all knew the location of Jesus’s mummified corpse, and this is how Helen the mother of Constantine was able to find the location so easily. As a mummified corpse Jesus’s flesh saw “no decay” (as prophesied). In the original Hebrew and Greek saying that a fleshy body would “see no decay” refers only to the mummification process after physical death–seeing “no decay” is only in reference to the corpse of flesh, which was mummified. It was only after the Council of Nicaea and after Charlemagne killed off the rest of the true Christians in Europe, that the anti-Biblical lie of the resurrection of the physical flesh became the entrenched dogma of the people who have been deceived by this non-Biblical teaching, such as yourself. This is why the return of Jesus can destroy antichrist with the “breath of his lips” because the way you get rid of a lie is by speaking the truth–as the lie has no reality-based existence it is then gone.

 

According to Paul–Jesus did not rise in the flesh–but “according to Scriptures!”

 

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again [it does not say in the fleshy flesh] the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen [mummified] by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen [mummified] by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen [mummified] by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen [mummified] by me also, as by one born out of due time.  (1 Corinthians 15:3–8)

 

Don’t you SEE Paul says: “Then last of all He was seen by me [Paul] also, as by one born out of due time.” So the other Apostles showed Paul Jesus’s mummified corpse in Jerusalem at the wall–after Paul had converted. This was long, long after Paul was struck by lightning on the road to Damascus. Long, long after Paul was at the stoning of Stephen. Long, long after, the clergy claims Jesus rose up into heaven [the sky they claim] in the first chapter of Acts, once and for all time, never to be seen by anyone again until the prophesied second coming 2000 years later. If Jesus floated away to never to be seen again, in the first chapter of Acts, then Paul could not have seen him, whom he had, therefore the clergy are false. Now I don’t why you believe this lie, or why anyone else would believe such an anti-scientific, and ridiculous lie as the resurrection of the flesh. But Paul tells us why: “He [that liar] will use every kind of evil deception [the resurrection of the physical flesh] to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth [of Jesus’s mummified corpse] that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies [trinity, easter egg, zombie apocalypse, etc]” (2 Thess. 2: 10-11 NLT).

 

So we all must have a LOVE for the truth–not a fear of death. This means we must be pure of heart. But that is not enough. We also must use the intellect that God gave us, and the independent investigation of the truth that Baha’u’llah enjoined upon us to get the reality!! Paul says: The resurrection is spiritual (1 Cor. 15:44) not physical. Learn!

 

According to the Guardian of the Baha’i faith Shoghi Effendi (and confirmed in the Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Baha):

 

“People wonder what happened to the body of Christ after the crucifixion. It was buried by the disciples under the wall of Jerusalem to protect it from the Roman legions. It remained buried there for some 290 years. It remained buried under the wall of Jerusalem until the mother of the Emperor Constantine, Helena, who had herself become a Christian, came to Jerusalem and had the Church of the Holy Sepulcher built–at which time the body of Christ was removed from under the wall of the city and was placed under the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. And that is where it is today. The Baha’is should be aware of this fact when they visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which is the holiest place in Christendom.” (Shoghi Effendi, April 1957 to the believers).

 

Jesus is not descended from the throne-line of King David–he is from Mary who is of the tribe of Levi (of the “daughters of Aaron” the “kinswoman of Elizabeth: see Luke 1:5, 36 RSV). Mary is not from the tribe of Judah but of Levi of the daughters of Aaron the kinswoman of Elizabeth. Joseph is not of the throne-line of King of David. Joseph is from David’s son Nathan who was never seated upon the throne (Luke 3:31). Further Jesus’s mummified corpse is buried in Jerusalem in the tomb just like everyone else–which is what the Bible says in the Greek New Testament. The resurrection is spiritual (1 Cor. 15:44) not physical. Jesus came to proclaim the coming of Baha’u’llah who is that great King of Kings seated upon the throne of King David that the whole Bible is talking about. When Christians say that is Jesus they are doing Jesus a dis-service for they make Jesus out to be a usurper–usurping the throne-line from Baha’u’llah, to Jesus who never sat upon the throne of David. Thank God Jesus never claimed to be seated upon the throne of David or he would have been a usurper. No, He said he was the “son” not the “father” (Is. 9:6-7). Jesus denied being the “prince of peace” (Is. 9:6-7) saying he did not “come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matt. 10:34), and Jesus prophesied Baha’u’llah by name (Mk. 8:38) as the one (“the glory of God” the father) who was yet to come!

 

BAHA’U’LLAH IS JEWISH: A DESCENDANT OF KING DAVID FROM THE TRIBE OF JUDAH

 

“The purpose of the descendant of King David being the President (Head of the Government, the Executive Branch) of Baha’u’llah’s Universal House of Justice is so we can recognize the true UHJ from fakes, frauds, and imitations.” (UHJ.net)

 

“This House of Justice enacteth the laws and the government [Davidic King] enforceth them. The legislative body must reinforce the executive [David King], the executive [Davidic King] must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself.” (W&T, p. 15)

 

“To Him Isaiah, the greatest of the Jewish prophets, had alluded as the “Glory of the Lord,” the “Everlasting Father,” the “Prince of Peace,” the “Wonderful,” the “Counselor,” the “Rod come forth out of the stem of Jesse” and the “Branch grown out of His roots,” Who “shall be established upon the throne of David…” (Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By, p. 94)

 

“By the violent beating of my heart I knew that we were soon to see the Blessed face of the Prince of the House of David, (‘Abdu’l-Baha) the King of the whole world.” (Lua Getsinger, cf. “Persia” by Asaac Adams, pp. 478-484).

 

Shoghi Effendi writes:

 

“Regarding your question concerning the Jesse from whom Baha’u’llah is descended: The Master says in Some Answered Questions, referring to Isaiah, chapter 11, verses 1 to 10, that these verses apply “Word for word to Baha’u’llah.” He then identifies this Jesse as the father of David in the following words: “…for Joseph was of the descendants of Jesse the father of David…” thus identifying the Jesse of Isaiah, chapter 11, with being the father of David. Baha’u’llah is thus the descendant of Jesse, the father of David

“The Guardian hopes that this will clarify the matter for you. It is a tremendous and fascinating theme, Baha’u’llah’s connection with the Faith of Judaism, and one which possesses great interest to Jew and Christian alike.” (Shoghi Effendi, 11 July 1942)

 

Also, from the mainstream perspective, the research of Dr. Grover Gonzales, a Baha’i in the mainstream fold, has published research on Baha’u’llah’s genealogy entitled “the genealogy of Shoghi Effendi” which traces the male throne-line of King David that Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha inherited through their Jewish lineage back to the exilarch Bostanai. The “exilarchs” are the exiled Jewish Kings of David – thus exiled monarchs = exil-arch: Exilarch. This is the Jewish origins of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha of the Jewish Kings that were brought into exile originally by Nebuchadnezzar and later into Persia by Cyrus the Great into what became Muslim lands.

 

According to Dr. Gonzales himself, he “was commissioned by Shoghi Effendi to do this research and [Shoghi Effendi] approved it for publication.” Dr. Gonzales “received the bulk of his work on Baha’u’llah’s family from Mirza Abu-Fazl who received it directly from Baha’u’llah Himself.” Gonzales’s chart showing the genealogy of Baha’u’llah back to the exilarch Bostanai and through him to King David is attached. You can see the names of Baha’u’llah, Bostanai, Exilarchs, and King David circled in red. Dr. Gonzales’s work on the Jewish (Davidic) origins of the genealogy of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha is published on-line at the Baha’i Academic Resource Library, the premiere on-line website for all academic studies of the Baha’i Faith: (http://bahai-library.com/gonzales_genealogy_shoghieffendi)

 

Another mainstream resource that gives this lineage and history of the Jewish origins of the family of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha is the Iqlim-i-Nur, by eminent Baha’i historian, Malik Khusravi. The second edition, the longer extended version, gives this same lineage back to the marriage of Bostanai to Dara (Izdundad) the daughter of Yazdigird III, the last Sassanian monarch. Thus Baha’u’llah is a descendant of Zoroaster (which means literally “seed of the woman”) through Yazdigird’s daughter Dara, and from the male throne-line from the Jewish origin of Bostanai the Exilarch. You may request a copy of the longer version of the Iqlim-i-Nur from Haifa where it is under lock and key. The guardian has told me that the shorter version is uploaded onto H-Net for the general public to have.

 

Aside from those works, we also have in our possession a manuscript copy of Baha’u’llah’s Book of Kings, which elucidates this entire theme completely. Again the main source of original Baha’i literature is the central documents and tablets of the Covenant. Beyond this core body of literature, the Jewish origins are a pervasive theme throughout the entirety of the Baha’i holy writ and literature. The reason for this is that the Baha’i scriptures are clear that Jesus Christ is the “Herald of the Kingdom.” He is the herald by proclaiming the meaning of the title Christ that is the key to the promised Kingdom of God.

 

The word “Christ” comes from the Greek word Christos, and literally means “anointed one” like to christen a ship. The Hebrew word for anointed one is “messiah.” But anointed one of what? The full title was “messiah ben David,” that is the anointed male-sperm descendant of King David. In order for Jesus and Baha’u’llah to be the Christ they must be of the male-sperm descendants of King David. If Baha’u’llah was not of this male-sperm throne-line of King David he couldn’t fulfill prophecy for the second coming of Christ in the potency of the “everlasting Father “ seated upon the “throne of King David” that is to last forever. However this is exactly what His claim is. This is backed up by history as well as all the Baha’i holy literature including especially Baha’u’llah’s Book of the Covenant and the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. Some of the Iranian Baha’is who occupied positions of power and seats of control in the Baha’i world had a problem with these Jewish roots–Jewish origins–of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha. This may have been a strong motive in their hijacking of the Faith away from ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s son Mason Remey to do away with the continuation of the Jewish line of Kings that is reserved for the president and executive branch of the Universal House of Justice of Baha’u’llah, now entitled the guardianship of the Baha’i Faith (see Will and Testament, page 14 and 15 for more).

TAQLID/BLIND IMITATION

In training in the arts and sciences–or even in children learning language–students, trainees, children tend to (at first) imitate their parents and teachers (and later they innovate for their own uniqueness of performance and expressions). But the Manifestations of God have commanded a direct and immediate experience of God for each and every individual;. In fact this is the second principle of the Baha’i Faith. Islam means to submit or surrender to the everlasting Covenant of God–which is the Will of God–which means NOT performing taqlid. Taqlid means to “collar yourself” to blind imitation (like a dog or animal–thus de-humanizing) which is forbidden. Those who collar/taqlid are not submissive in surrendering their will to God alone–and are NOT being independant of all save God. This is why the Kingdom of God is the government of God and not of man. No man shall govern or rule upon another–but God himself shall be their king and ruler–meaning that the people are in relationship with God and are AGAINST the Incarnate-Lie of mere men to whom they perform taqlid.

Even God in our relationship with him prefers free will exercise of true love–and does not make puppets of us. Fealty and loyalty out of LOVE is NOT taqlid.

The only true religion in the world that preserves this fealty and loyalty of true love by informed consent and free will is the real faith under the provisions of the Covenant. The real guardian of the Baha’i faith guards us from taqlid, and allows the free people to live openly with God, in God, before God, after God and all in all of God. There is no time in the world of God. Everything is now.

Not enough can be said about this All-Important Theme!. They are not coerced under the pressure of manmade “rulers” or manmade “over-lordships.” No! They are free people even as the Davidic King is a free man. They are enlightened and in contact with the divine even as each and everyone one of us has this capacity: for “in my soul I am free!” As God loves those who work in groups–they come together to form societies and projects. The throne of King David is the sign of international peace through real justice. It is not a taqlid–nor is it a lordship controlling or intimidating peoples as do the manmade governments “benevolent or malevolent dictatorships”, “One-man rule”, or “totalitarian states” of earth.

God has already allowed for the rulers and monarchs and kings and governments of the nations to be populated by the leaderships of the peoples and tribes.

If they go against God they will be subjected to troubles and punishments that naturally arise from wrong governances. If they accept the guidance of God and spiritualize they will undoubtedly prosper (as has the British monarchy that was fair to Baha’u’llah) and win the love of all the peoples.

Some Answered Questions Holy Text Preserved! Ilm 1, 172 B.E. (10/16/2015)

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

Dear friends,

The original preserved text of Some Answered Questions (SAQ) is now available in hard copy format.

*****

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).

Disciples Of The Temple – Mashiyyat 5, 172 B.E. (10/1/2015)

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Dear friends,

Baha’u’llah declares His mission in the Surah of the Temple–a Temple in which Peter states in the Bible we are all “living stones.” One of the great writers of the 20th Century is Manly P. Hall. I first heard of him through Dr. Jensen who cites him in his book The Beast first published in 1971. Professor Hall has written on many esoteric subjects and for many years gave weekly lectures from his center in LA. He was friends with Nicholas Roerich; he was a junior contemporary and admirer of Mason Remey; and has written about ‘Abdu’l-Baha and spoken on esoteric matters concerning the Baha’i faith. When Shoghi Effendi was in Manchester, England ‘Adbu’l-Baha sent the following tablet:

“In the Name of God!

“O Sincere Servant of the Blessed Beauty!

“Your detailed letter has been received, and has been the cause of the utmost joy and gladness. Praise be to God! The loved ones are all astir and active, but prudence is necessary. You have rent the veil too widely asunder. Explain to the loved ones that the rending of the veil to such an extent will be the cause of great agitation, and the harm thereof will reach to the Holy Land. Great caution is necessary. Discourses in churches and great public gatherings are in no wise permitted as in this place enemies, within and without, are lying in wait and are bent on aggression. Prudence requires that activity should, for the present, be concealed and carried on with the utmost moderation. Convey to the loved ones, one and all, on my behalf, the greatest longing, love and kindness. Give a spiritual message from me to Mr. Healds and say unto him: “Peruse the Gospel, how His Holiness Christ – may my life be a sacrifice to Him – says, ‘Conceal it, that the Pharisees may not be informed thereof.’ Now the same condition prevails.” (Mark 8:29-30)

“This matter is of the greatest importance. On no account let them contribute articles to the newspapers, and so long as they are not sure of any soul, let them breathe no word to him. Consider how the Freemasons have for two hundred years carried on their work, and unto this day they have not openly declared it to any soul. Not until they find a hearing ear will they speak. The loved ones too must proceed with the greatest prudence, lest serious difficulties be created. If any one should travel to the Holy Land, he must on no account declare to anyone by the way that his purpose is to visit us. The loved ones must, in the presence of strangers, speak forth simply the teachings of the Blessed Beauty and mention no word of the belief concerning Him. Should anyone enquire, “What is your belief regarding the Blessed Beauty?” let them answer: “We regard Him as the foremost teacher and educator of these later ages and Abdu’l-Baha as the Centre of His Covenant.”” (‘Abdu’l-Baha, October 21, 1921)

Mr. Healds religion of origin was Judaism and he was very much interested in the fact that Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha were of Jewish extraction (of the tribe of Judah from King David — though of Persian descent after Nebuchadnezzar took the throne into Babylonian captivity) as the “Kings from the East” that God had brought forth seated “upon the throne of King David” that is to last forever. Jesus was also of the line of King David (but not that of the throne line) through David’s son Nathan. When the disciples recognized that Jesus was of Davidic origin they knew he was the “messiah” that is the “christ.” Christ comes from the Greek word Christos that is the same as the Hebrew word messiah and literally means anointed one –like to christen a ship. The full title was messiah ben David the anointed male sperm descendant of king David. Mr. Healds being Jewish was very excited about this! But like Jesus ‘Abdu’l-Baha instructed him and the early Baha’is to: “Consider how the Freemasons have for two hundred years carried on their work, and unto this day they have not openly declared it to any soul. Not until they find a hearing ear will they speak.” Thus the throne-line and lineage of King David that ‘Abdu’l-Baha passed on to his son Mason Remey was a well-guarded secret in the inner circles of the Baha’i Faith. Adepts such as Roerich and Manly P. Hall were aware of this and spoke of this significance allegorically for the most part, even as Jesus spoke in parables and symbolisms, but on his prophesied return was to “speak plainly of the father.”

Now while the Baha’i writings contain the facts of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha being seated upon the throne of King David it was not the spearhead of the teaching effort. This allowed the “Hands” to have room to maneuver and lead many of the Baha’i peoples astray in their violation of 1957. As many people were materialists, they were also mis-directed away from recognizing the fact that Mason had been legally adopted by ‘Abdu’l-Baha as his son and successor to the throne of King David.

When Dr. Jensen came out with his public proclamation in 1971, he proclaimed the genealogy of Baha’u’llah. In the year 2001 AD (Al- Mustaghath) this fact was projected back into the public consciousness ten days after the 9-11 event and the full genealogy of Baha’u’llah and all the ancestors seated upon the throne of King David was unfurled for the very first time to the public eyes. This was all meant to be.

When I was in England visiting the Atlantis Bookshop, I first learned then of the rumors that Professor Hall had been murdered. It made a deep impression on me, and made me think more about the situation of Shoghi Effendi as the OHO (guardian) of the Baha’i Faith and of his murder in London by Ruhiyyih Khanum and the “Hands,” while Mason had inherited the throne of King David–and how God uses the people to both protect and promote His Cause.

I was in London, at that time, for the ritualistic purification of the tomb of Shoghi Effendi–a necessary precursor in the events leading up to the so-called Arab Spring and other victories in the faith (forces of light–Baha’i means light) that began to manifest in the year 2010. Our mission was successful, but not without some undue and lingering consequences for some of the faithful friends. It is essential that the friends remain in refuge in the Sanctuary of the inner Temple. This is the outer sanctuary of the text of the Covenant; that was written in three parts by ‘Abdu’l-Baha on three different occasions and represents the Book of the Law of the Baha’i Faith (sealed with seven seals). When the leadership in the faith performs certain operations it is essential that all the people participate in harmonious support, i.e. remain firm and steadfast.

For example, it was in the year 1991 in Ridvan that Dr. Leland Jensen, as the Lamb, opened the 7th Seal unleashing spiritual forces that were greatly needed for this healing of the world. This purgatory healing was accompanied by the exit of a small dissident people who were knowledgeable in the teachings of the Lamb, and went out from under the Covenant to form other dissident Baha’i “groups.” This pattern–as you know–follows through the entire history of the faith since the proclamation of the Bab in 1844. God uses this pattern to spread the wisdom of His teachings through the iniquity of violation of the Covenant. The violators of the Covenant place themselves between the people (the public) the unaware and the unsuspecting, (and sometimes even the “elect”) and OCCLUDE the source of the true teachings–namely the Manifestation of God and His appointed successor or successors in the Covenant. This is similar to the Blood Moon Lunar eclipse that has just occurred!

In an eclipse the heavily body of light is “occluded” by another obstacle that prevents the people from seeing it. The occultation of the Davidic Kingship–even more than the minor and major occultations of the 12th Imam–has always remained the major occluded spiritual and material reality on our planet during the past 6000 year cycle of Adam since the Covenant was violated by Nimrod and Semiramis and the mystery cults were founded and “Christianity” was hijacked. The prophecies speak of a time when these mysteries shall be cleared, and the way will be open and seeking permitted.

Here in the talk by Manly P. Hall is important information for all the disciples of the Temple. When you have some free time–take the time to hear his words and mediate upon them and your experience of them. This will be essential experiential knowledge in passing the next TEST and graduating to the next level that is coming upon us soon.
