Open Epistle to the United States
October 16, 2004
To His Honor George W. Bush, President of the United States of America!
“Hearken ye, O Rulers of America and the Presidents of the Republics therein, unto that which the Dove is warbling on the Branch of Eternity: “There is none other God but Me, the Ever-Abiding, the Forgiving, the All-Bountiful.” Adorn ye the temple of dominion with the ornament of justice and of the fear of God, and its head with the crown of the remembrance of your Lord, the Creator of the heavens. Thus counselleth you He Who is the Dayspring of Names, as bidden by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.”
-Baha'u'llah, Book of the Holy of Holies
Dear President Bush:
Included in this letter is a very, very important book ["The King of Terror"] that you should read, with accompanying packet to the Leaders of the World. It details many of the prophesied events that are taking place today as spoken of in both the Bible and the prophecies of Nostradamus. Years ago, you had a vision or religious experience not unlike that of another George, George Washington, (your name's sake), but unlike you his was published in the Stars and Stripes magazine which I am sure you will want to refer.
God works in mysterious ways, making sure all things will come about exactly according His plan and His will. With Saddam Hussein “on ice”, so to speak, and the invasion of Iraq, the world could not be in a more dire predicament of divisiveness and a more opportune time for the unification of the peoples who wish to eliminate such crisis as this from our world once and for all times. Like Constantine who had a vision of Christ at the Mulvian Bridge and needed to unite a fragmented Rome, this world today is promised to be united, as you well know, by this same Jesus. The mistake made by those who have been indoctrinated by others in the position of clergy, many of whom are sincere, but are sincerely wrong, is that they have this to be by Jesus on his first coming, but rather as Washington saw, it is on the second coming. Thus they have taught the wrong “Jesus” (2 Corinthians 11:4) to the people and therefore the people are still in their sins and are really not saved at all.
“For if someone comes and preaches another Jesus than the one we preached or if you receive a different spirit, from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted you submit to it readily enough.” (2 Cor. 11:4 RSV).
So ALL the churches are teaching the wrong “Jesus” (or the false “Jesus”) to the people; and they have all accepted it readily enough, to the loss of their own salvation.
The real Jesus said of himself, “a little while longer and the world will see me no more.” (John 14:19) Thus it is the return of Jesus (Hebrews 9:28; Rev. 5:6, etc ...) that is performing what God guided you to see and understand.
So ‘Abdu'l-Baha has declared:
“The oneness of the kingdom of humanity will supplant the banner of conquest, and all communities of the earth will gather under its protection. No nation with separate and restricted boundaries - such as Persia, for instance - will exist. The United States of America will be known only as a name. Germany, France, England, Turkey, Arabia - all these various nations will be welded together in unity. When the people of the future are asked, “To which nationality do you belong?” the answer will be, “To the nationality of humanity. I am living under the shadow of Baha'u'llah. I am the servant of Baha'u'llah. I belong to the army of the Most Great Peace.” The people of the future will not say, “I belong to the nation of England, France or Persia”,- for all of them will be citizens of a universal nationality - the one family, the one country, the one world of humanity - and then these wars, hatreds and strifes will pass away.” (‘Abdu'l-Baha, Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 19)
And again he has said:
“As to the question of disarmament, all nations must disarm at the same time. It will not do at all, and it is not proposed, that some nations shall lay down their arms while others, their neighbours, remain armed. The peace of the world must be brought about by international agreement. All nations must agree to disarm simultaneously...
“No nation can follow a peace policy while its neighbour remains warlike. There is no justice in that. Nobody would dream of suggesting that the peace of the world could be brought about by any such line of action. It is to be brought about by a general and comprehensive international agreement, and in no other way...
“Simultaneous action... is necessary in any scheme of disarmament. All the governments of the world must transform their battleships and warcraft into merchant vessels. But no one nation can by itself start in upon such a policy and it would be folly should one power attempt to do so ... it would simply invite destruction ....”
(‘Abdu'l-Baha, Peace, p. 171)
“Therefore, if America takes the first step toward the establishing of world peace, it is certain to be ascribed to unselfishness and altruism. The world will say, “There is no other motive than altruism and service to humanity in this action by the United States.” Therefore, it is my hope that you may stand forth as the first herald of peace and hoist this banner, for this banner will be hoisted. Raise it aloft, for you are the most qualified and deserving of nations. The other countries await this summons, expect this call to the standard of reconciliation, for the whole world is distressed because of the excessive burden and irreparable damage of war. Taxes are levied to meet its drain. Every year the burden increases, and the people have come to their end. Just now Europe is a battlefield of ammunition ready for a spark, and one spark will set aflame the whole world. Before these complications and cataclysmic events happen, take the step to prevent it.”
(‘ Abdu'l-Baha, Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 122)
Therefore, you are quite right, as you stated in the recent first debate, not to allow the United States of America to either disarm unilaterally, nor submit to a bogus International Tribunal of Foreign Court that would compromise the best interests of the United States, its National Security and its people!
As we live through the next necessary disaster and catastrophe, we MUST take that next step to prevent the Greater disaster, which is following it up at its very heels! Therefore the United States, while right not to submit to Foreign Court of ill make-up and wrong constitution, must however lead the path into the future Supreme Tribunal, which shall have representative form of government, uphold the international and inalienable human rights of all people so “endowed by their Creator”, and therefore shall that Supreme Body, have the power, felicity and foundation to establish world peace based upon world justice where International Law is something that the wicked obey and that the righteous DO enforce! God has ordained this, no one can prevent it from happening. Blessed are those who lead the way!
I hope this letter has been helpful to you, and that you will be able to fulfill the role you have been raised up by God to accomplish, for all authority and power and glory belongs to that of God alone.
And then He said to Nebuchadnezzar: “O King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: The kingdom has departed from you, and you shall be driven from among men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field; and you shall be made to eat grass like an ox; and seven times shall pass over you, until you have learned that the Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom He will.”
“...for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His Kingdom endures from generation to generation; and the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing; and He does according to His Will in the Host of Heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay His hand or say to Him, ‘What doest thou?”
“For He Alone doeth Whatsoever He Willeth and Ordaineth whatsoever He Pleaseth!” (Daniel 4:31, 32, 34, 35; Baha'u'llah Aqdas)
And unto the “man whose name is the Branch” (Zech. 3:8; Jer. 23:5, Zech 6: 12 KJV and Moffats), He has Declared: “I am about to shake the heavens and the earth, and to overthrow the throne of Kingdoms; I am about to destroy the strength of kingdoms of the nations [including the United Nations]; I am about to overthrow the chariots and their riders; and the horses and their riders shall go down, every one by the sword of his fellow ... for I have chosen you, says the Lord of Hosts” (Haggai 2:22, 23 RSV).
On Behalf of the Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah,
In El Abha.

The greatness of the United States shines through its First Amendment freedoms which has allowed the people of different religions and backgrounds to flourish within the legal sanctity of this protective haven as vouchsafed by God and stated explicitly in the both the Constitution of the United States, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence that ALL “are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”!

Prayers for America
O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to Thee. These hearts are radiant with Thy Love. These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings. O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious. Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world. O God! This American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy. Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal.
O God, Almighty Protector!
O Thou Who art the confirmer of every just power, equitable empire in eternal glory, everlasting power, continuance and greatness: Strengthen with abundance of Thy mercy every government which acts with equity towards its subjects, and every dominion under whose flag the poor and weak find protection.
We ask Thee by Thy holiness and bounty to pour out Thy blessing upon this government which has stretched its tent over citizens from every land, that its inhabitants, its industries, its territories may be penetrated by justice.
O God, strengthen its executives, give authority and influence to its word and utterance, protect its territories and dominions, guard its reputation, make its ideals to echo throughout the world, reveal its traces and exalt its principles by Thy conquering power and wonderful might throughout the kingdoms of creation.
Thou art confirmer of whomsoever Thou willest. Verily, Thou art the powerful and the might!
