The Ghost Dance and the Second Coming of Christ
"Do not tell the white people about this. Jesus [The Messiah] is now upon the earth. He appears like a cloud. The dead are all alive again. I do not know when they will be here; maybe this fall or in the spring. When the time comes there will be no more sickness and everyone will be young again." 
Such were the words of the Paiute Indian prophet Wovoka over one hundred years ago written in his announcement to all Indians in North America. This great message was taken to the differing tribes and they were instructed by Wovoka to dance the "Ghost Dance" in harmony and in unison making no distinction between the tribes or the people.
Wovoka had had a vision in the year 1889 that he was a messenger for the Indian people to tell them that the Messiah was in the world. Wovoka said the Messiah had come to the earth and that the Indian people were to get ready for the age promised to them for thousands of years that was about to be born. Wovoka saw the future and saw a world where all the people would live together in peace and harmony and the Indian people would be able to live and be happy once again, not like they were at the present time; being herded into numerous reservations, having their land stolen from them and made to take government handouts to feed their families. Wovoka had them dance the Ghost Dance to begin to bring the different tribes together. Tribes that had been enemies and warring against one another were brought together in one common faith of the coming of this great age of peace that the Messiah was to bring.
But who is this Messiah? The understanding at the time, even among the Indians themselves, was that Wovoka was the Messiah, the Son of God come back to the Indian people because the white people killed him last time he came to them. But this was not so.
"He makes no claim to be Christ, the Son of God, as has been so often asserted in print. He does claim to be a prophet who has received a divine revelation." 
Wovoka was saying that he was a messenger for the coming of the One who was the Messiah and that the Messiah was then in the world. So who is this Messiah?
As Christianity had been taught to the many tribes throughout North America by the white missionaries, Jesus Christ was interpreted by the Indian people to be the god of the white settlers. With this concept, Jesus being a "Messiah" was not readily understood. To get to the real message of what Wovoka was trying to say, let us first define the word "Messiah".
The word "Messiah" is the same word in Hebrew as the word "Christ". "Christ" is the Greek translation of the Hebrew "Messiah" or specifically, "Messiah ben David", or "The anointed son of David." Jesus bore the title "Christ" as he was a descendant of David who has been anointed with the Holy Spirit. The Messiah's were the kings of Israel and Judah who were direct descendants of King David who had been anointed by the High Priest. All the kings of Israel and Judah sat on the throne of David and were anointed with oil by the High Priest on their coronation.
Contrary to the popular understanding, in the prophecies of the Old Testament there are two Messiah's or Christ's, being descended from David who would come and be anointed with the Holy Spirit by God. One would be a "Suffering Messiah" who would not be seated on the throne of David or be an earthly king. Jesus was not a king seated on the throne, as Jesus himself says: "My kingdom is not of this world...". Jesus was descended through Solomon's brother Nathan who was a Prophet as Jesus was to come and deliver the prophecies for the coming of the Kingdom of God on Earth. The "Suffering Messiah" would be persecuted, rejected and killed giving over his life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.
The other descendant of David prophesied of would be a "Redeeming Messiah" who would bring a world government of peace and justice being seated on the throne of David as a direct lineal descendant of king David himself. To quote from Hal Lindsey the author of the popular book "The Late, Great Planet Earth":
"Two Completely different portraits of a coming Messiah were described by the Old Testament prophets...One portrait of the Messiah depicts Him as a humble servant who would suffer for others and be rejected by His own countrymen. This portrait we may call "the Suffering Messiah." (Look into the prophecies of Isaiah 53 for the perfect picture of this Messiah.)
The other portrait shows the Messiah as a conquering king with unlimited power, who comes suddenly to earth at the height of a global war and saves men from self-destruction. He places the Israelites who believe in Him as the spiritual and secular leaders of the world and brings in an age free of prejudice and injustice...We may call this second picture "the Reigning Messiah." We may find this description is such prophecies as Zechariah 14 and Isaiah 9:6,7." (The Late, Great Planet Earth, Hal Lindsey, pg. 28-29)
Much to the surprise of the people, the Old Testament actually describes two Christs or "Anointed" who are to come. In the Book of Zechariah the prophet has a vision in which he sees a golden lamp stand with seven lamps on it and two olive branches next to the lamp stand:
"And he said to me, 'What do you see?' I said, 'I see, and behold, a lamp stand all of gold, with a bowl on the top of it, and seven lamps on it, with seven lips on each of the lamps which are on the top of it. And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.' And I said to the angel who talked with me 'What are these my Lord?' Then the angel who talked with me answered me,...'These seven are the eyes of the Lord which range through the whole earth.'" (Zechariah 4:2-10)
Seven "Eyes of the Lord" are described as also having lips showing how that these "Eyes", being at the same time lamps, also speak. These seven lamps are prophets of God who have come delivering the world’s religions like teachers in the grades of school; Adam, Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, Muhammad, and the Bab who was the herald and forerunner of Baha'u'llah. This concept of a plurality of God's messengers is called "Progressive Revelation" meaning the Divine Knowledge of God continues to come to our world in the form of these Holy souls who manifest God to the people as pure reflections of God's will. The vision of Zechariah continues:
"Then I said to him, 'What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?'...Then he said. 'These are the two anointed who stand by the Lord of the whole earth.'" (Zechariah 4:11-13)
In his vision Zechariah saw these seven prophets of God or "Manifestations of God" as seven lamps and "Eyes of the Lord", but he also saw two olive trees next to the seven lamps. The angel who gave Zechariah the vision told him the two olive trees or olive branches are the "two anointed who stand by the Lord of the whole earth." "Anointed" in the Hebrew is "Messiah", and in the Greek is "Christ". The Messiah's of Israel were the kings of Israel. They were descendants of King David that had been educated by the High Priest of Israel and then symbolically "anointed" with olive oil upon their forehead. Olive oil was used as a fuel in the lamps of ancient Israel and this was used to represent "enlightenment". Here there are two "anointed" or "Christs" prophesied to come and be anointed with the Holy Spirit. Today this vision is symbolized in the familiar State Seal of the nation of Israel.
The first Messiah that came was Jesus who was the "Suffering Messiah" who was rejected and crucified. Jesus came and delivered the "Gospel" or "Good News" of the coming of the kingdom of God on earth and, with his own lips, prophesied the coming of the One who would finally deliver this kingdom. In the 8th chapter of the Book of Mark Jesus tells us who this is:
"For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." (Mark 8:38)
In the 7th chapter of the Book of Acts, the disciple Stephen is being stoned to death and he has a vision of the two Messiahs:
"But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus, standing at the right hand of God;" (Acts 7:55)
Jesus did not speak English. He spoke a Galilean dialect of Aramaic and what the bible renders as "Glory of God", "Glory of the Lord" or "Glory of the Father", Jesus said "Baha-u-llah". Contrary to the current Christian teaching about the Glory of God, it is not just some nebulous spirit that emanates from God like the Christian clergy try to explain. For instance, they say that the Glory of God that is next to Jesus in the vision of Stephen is a spirit that comes from Jesus, as Jesus is God. But the Bible teaches otherwise:
"And above the firmament over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness as it were of a human form...Such was the likeness of the Glory of the Lord." (Ezekiel 1:26-28)
The "Glory of the Lord" is not a "spirit" but is a "human form" meaning a person. A person who is seated upon a throne which is the throne of David. Like Jesus, the second coming of Christ, Baha'u'llah, is a "Manifestation" of God or one who receives the thought of God directly and then reflects it to the people.
THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD
The Manifestations are like pure and finely polished mirrors that reflect God to the people. They are like mirrors, because a mirror, when brought out into the sunshine of the day, is able to reflect the full image of the sun. When you look into the mirror you see everything that the sun is: the disk of the sun, the heat and the light of the sun. If the mirror were to say "I am the sun", the mirror would be speaking the truth, and if the mirror were to say "the sun is in me", again, the mirror would be speaking the truth. Everything that the sun is, is in the mirror and is reflected perfectly through it. Now, the sun is a million times bigger than the earth and the earth is a billion times bigger than the mirror and in no possible way does the sun shrink itself down and fit into the mirror, what you see is only a reflection of the sun. In like manner, it would be easier for the sun, being a million times bigger than the earth, to fit itself into a mirror one can hold in their hand, than the One, True, Invisible God who pervades all space and all time, to fit and incarnate Himself into a human being. Manifestations reflect God's message to the people via the spoken word. The Manifestations are endowed with the Holy Spirit which is the complete thought of God that they then impart to the people through the spoken word or have it written down in a book. The Manifestations of God are human beings with the special capacity of being able to receive and transmit the thought of God. They are human beings, but they possess one more thing or quality which sets them apart from all others. This can be best illustrated with the example of some things from today's technology.
As we live our daily lives we are continuously being bombarded with thousands of invisible waves, microwaves, television waves, radio waves, etc. No matter how hard or long we may try to meditate on what these waves are saying, we will never be able to pick them up. It is only when we turn to the radio or television set, the instrument that has that special capacity to receive those waves and broadcast them, are we able to discover what those waves are saying. Again, the same is true for the Manifestation. Only the Manifestation of God has the capacity or special "equipment" to be able to receive the Holy Spirit or the complete thought of God and then broadcast it to the people.
The human being needs the Manifestations of God to become aware of the presence of God. Man is a spiritual being and is in need of the education of the Spirit through contact with the Manifestations. God does not speak to us with a big megaphone in the sky, nor does He talk to us individually. The only way that God will communicate with His creation is through the Manifestations of Himself. God is an invisible, infinite essence and the only way that we can perceive of God is not in His essence, but through His Manifestation. Through the knowledge of the Manifestations, we as human beings are able to evolve and progress both physically and spiritually. The physical side of the human being is the vehicle for our spiritual side. It is the form we are in when we first come in contact with the knowledge of God. The Manifestations bring laws and ordinances to regulate our physical world and help in the creation of civilizations.
When Wovoka was telling the Indian people that the Messiah was in the world, Baha'u'llah was in the prison city of Akka at the foot of Mount Carmel in Israel being held a prisoner and captive having been exiled from His native Persia by the Persian government and the Ottoman Empire. Baha'u'llah (1817-1892) was the son of the Grand Vizier to the Shah of Persia. Baha'u'llah sat upon the Throne of David, as He was a direct, physical descendant of King David. His father sat upon the Throne of David that had been taken into captivity from Israel by king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in 597 B.C. His father's father sat on the Throne of David, in an unbroken chain of father to son descendants all the way back to king David himself. It is to this lineage of kings seated upon the Throne of David that had been in exile in Babylon, and stayed in Babylon even after the Jews returned to Israel, known as the Exilarchs (Exiled Davidic Monarch), that is foretold to be the lineage from which the Messiah Himself would be born.
"He [the Exilarch] was of David's seed, and from him or one of his relatives would come the Messiah." 
Baha'u'llah had been taken in chains to different prison cities in His exiles from His native Persia, from the dungeon of the Black Pit in Tehran, Persia to Baghdad, Iraq to Constantinople to Adrianople and finally to the Prison City of Akka at the foot of Mount Carmel in Israel.
All these imprisonments because Baha'u'llah laid claim to a Revelation direct from God and was proclaiming this fact to the world. Baha'u'llah wrote to all the kings and leaders of the world, from Queen Victoria to Napoleon, the Pope to President Grant of the U.S., Baha'u'llah, although a captive, wrote over 20,000 different books and tablets outlining an entire world civilization - the Kingdom of God on Earth. The main tenant of this new Revelation was the Oneness of the world of Mankind - that all people were from the same tree, that no matter what the color of the skin, the hue of the heart is always the same. In outlining this future world civilization, Baha'u'llah instructed the people of the world to institute a "House of Justice" that all the nations of the world would be a part of. That in this House of Justice all the difficult problems of the world would be solved peacefully, through legislation, not having to take them to the battlefield. The Tsar of Russia Alexander II became an adherent of the Baha'i teachings and his grandson Nicholas I implemented these teachings for the first time in the World Court at the Hague, Netherlands. Baha'u'llah, as the true author of this plan for a World Court of arbitration, was never proclaimed and thus this solution for the world's ills was never fully implemented. Though it contained the physical structure that nations were a part of, it lacked the spiritual essence and thus this attempt at Baha'u'llah's House of Justice failed and our world was plunged into its first World War.
The First World War was unprecedented in its destructive force. The toll of human lives was such as never had been seen before because of the new developments in technology and in new and more deadly weapons of war. How is it that our world had changed so much, so fast? That our world was literally transformed overnight from the age of the horse and buggy to the modern age of motorized transportation and air travel to now where we can put a man on the moon? All in a matter of a hundred years, whereas previously our world had only minor technological achievements over the thousands of years of our history? Something amazing must have happened!
If there was ever a year in mankind's history that could be viewed as a turning point to our future, this is the year. It was in this year that a great phenomena was taking place. People all over the world were expecting Christ to return to earth! One man here in the United Sates, William Miller, was going all over what was then the whole of the U.S., proclaiming this fact to the people. Miller had discovered the date of 1844 while studying the prophesies of the prophet Daniel in the Old Testament. As he was able to prove this date scientifically, the people had no doubt that Miller was right. It was estimated that almost one third of the U.S. in 1844 were "Millerites" believing in the date of 1844 as the year of Christ's return.
But not only here in the U.S., but also in Germany there were the "Keblerites" who also found this date and even moved from Germany to Mount Carmel in Israel to wait for Christ to come for this was the promised place in the Old Testament that the Messiah was to appear. Another, a man named "Wolf" in Asia also discovered this date and also expected Christ to return in that year. There were people literally all over the globe who were expecting Christ to return at this time. Edward Irving in England, Mason in Scotland, Davis in South Carolina, the list goes on. None of these people knew of each other, they were in different parts of the world, yet they all came up with the same date. These were Christians waiting for the return of Christ, but this expectation wasn't limited only to Christianity.
In the world of Shi'a Islam there was the expectation for the coming of the 12th Imam or promised Qa'im who was to appear in the Muslim year of 1260 A.H. The Muslim year 1260 A.H. corresponds to the Christian year 1844 A.D. It was at this time that the forerunner and herald of Baha'u'llah, "the Bab" (pronounced 'bob') which means "Door" or "Gate" in the language of the Middle-East, proclaimed His mission as being the One who was to close the door to the age of prophecy and open the door to the age of fulfillment. He was the One who was to prepare the way for the coming of He who was to be much greater than Himself, this One being Baha'u'llah. The Bab being the forerunner and One who was to prepare the way for the coming of Baha'u'llah, was like John the Baptist for who prepared and taught the people about the appearance of the Messiah that was fulfilled by Jesus.
As the Christians all over the world had the correct year, they were still going by their own expectations of how these prophecies were to be fulfilled. They were all looking up into the physical sky for Christ to come floating down from. But as history always proves, it is not the people's expectations that are ever fulfilled, but the prophecies that are fulfilled.
"What hath God wrought"
It was the year 1844. The day was May 23rd and the place was Shiraz, Persia. It was here that the Bab made his proclamation to one individual that He was the One who was the Promised Qa'im of the Muslim Revelation. That He was the One who was to usher in the promised age of fulfillment and prepare the way for the coming of "He whom God shall make Manifest", that Individual who was to come after Him who would be the culmination of all the world's religions and promises of all people's of the earth. This One being Baha'u'llah. It was that day of May 23rd 1844 that this message was first heard in the world to one amazed and enraptured soul. And it was the very next day, May 24th 1844 that Samuel Morse from the Legislative chambers in Washington D.C. sent the first telegraph message to Baltimore, M.D. saying for the very first time across the telegraph wire; "What Hath God Wrought", or "What has God Done?" meaning "What has God created that is so wonderful that we can now use electricity to carry messages like the flash of lightning?" This day marks the turning point in modern technological achievements.
In the year 1844 the U.S. Patent office in Washington was literally going to close its doors because they thought that everything that had meant to be invented had already been invented. How wrong could they have been! Since this day our technology has skyrocketed in comparison to our past achievements. This is because the Baha'i Revelation was first introduced to the world and it is because of this Revelation that we continue to explode technologically.
"For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man." (Matthew 24:27)
This is the Promised Return of Christ! The Second Coming of Christ has already happened! This is why the world today is on the brink of the great battle of Armageddon where it says all the nations of the world will be brought down into the “Valley of Decision”, because the world has, like the proverbial broken record, repeated history once again and failed to recognize the Promised One sent to them.
What does it mean when a person "Returns"? This is a very important question to ask and one that the bible very clearly defines. Even though that the whole of the Christian world still looks to the physical sky for Jesus to come floating down from, the bible teaches us something completely different.
What was one of the biggest obstacles for the people in accepting Christ on His first coming? It was that the clergy of Jesus' time taught the people that the prophet Elijah who had lived 900 years previous must return first and point to the one who is the Messiah. And as it is recorded in the II Book of Kings, the second chapter that Elijah was taken up into heaven in a whirlwind on a flaming chariot, it must be the same Elijah of 900 years ago descending out of the physical heavens in a flaming chariot for us to believe that he is Elijah and accept the one whom he points to as the Messiah.
"And as they still went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven." (II Kings 2:12)
And in the last book of the Old Testament, the book of Malachi, the last chapter of the book of Malachi, it says that Elijah would return first.
"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes." (Malachi 4:5)
"Since we haven't seen any flaming chariot come flying down out of the sky", the people said, "your Jesus is an impostor!" This is the type of logic the people went by back then and it is the same logic they still go by in their expectations of Christ's return. But what does Jesus say about this?
"Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has risen no one greater than John the Baptist...and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come." (Matthew 11:11,14)
This is one of the greatest teachings in the whole bible! The meaning of "Return". That when a prophet of God "Returns" it is not the same physical person that returns, but the spiritual message that emanated from them. The people go to John and ask John himself if he is Elijah and John the Baptist replies "no".
"And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, 'Who are you?' He confessed, he did not deny, but confessed, 'I am not the Christ.' And they asked him, 'What then? Are you Elijah?' He said, 'I am not.' 'Are you the prophet?' And he answered, 'No.' They said to him then, 'Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?' He said, 'I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as the prophet Isaiah said.'"
This was confusing for the people. Here Jesus tells them that John was the return of Elijah and now John say he's not. What gives? John was saying that he was not Elijah, in that he was not the "reincarnation" of Elijah or the same individual soul of Elijah, he was John. But that the message that he was giving was the same message that Elijah had given 900 years previous as a "voice crying in the wilderness".
It is as if you were to have two lamps, one is on, the other is not. If you turn the light off in the one and then turn it on in the other, it is the same light, but in a different lamp. This is the same thing that happens with those Promised Ones of God when they return. It is not the same physical person that returns, it is the spiritual light that returns in another person.
As the Christians one hundred years ago were all looking into the physical sky for the return of Christ, they failed to recognize this promise beginning to be fulfilled with the coming of another man with part of the same message emanating from Him. The people's expectations weren't fulfilled but the prophecy was. As this time came and the Age for the Return of Christ was upon us, people from different parts of the world, different cultures, different religions all started to have dreams and visions of the Messiah who was in the world. One of these was Wovoka here in America who started to disseminate this message throughout the tribes of the Native Americans. And yet there was another Native American who became involved in the Ghost Dance movement who had, as a boy, a vision of the coming of the Messiah too. This was the Sioux Medicine Man Black Elk.
Black Elk & Wounded Knee
Black Elk was one of the members of the Lakota at the massacre at Wounded Knee, the horrible slaughter of over 300 men women and children by the American Troops because they feared another Indian uprising. The Lakota Indians were participating in the Ghost Dance at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and the white Indian agent at the reservation sent for troops because he thought the Ghost Dance was a war dance and the Indians were getting ready to revolt. But this was as far from the truth as could be. Wovoka specifically instructed the Indians to be peaceful and not to hurt anyone for any reason, to not steal or even lie. Wovoka's message was a message of peace because his message was the message of the Prince of Peace, Baha'u'llah, the great World Redeemer who was now upon the earth. But the whites misinterpreted this coming together of the differing tribes as being motivated with hostile intent and thus they mustered troops to put this potential uprising down. It is a noted fact that many of the troops at Pine Ridge were of the Seventh Calvary, General Custer's old command, and that a lot of these soldiers were eager for revenge.
The massacre at Wounded Knee is listed in history as the last great battle of the Northern Plains Indians and the point where the Ghost Dance started to decline in its fervor. The massacre at Wounded Knee is spoken of in the last two chapters of the book "Black Elk Speaks", the last chapter being called "The End of the Dream". Here Black Elk is disheartened at recalling the horrible massacre at Wounded Knee in light of his visions as a boy of the promise he thought was to occur for his people.
Visions of the Other World
Black Elk was born in 1863, the same year Baha'u'llah made His proclamation that He was the Promised Messiah, that descendant of David seated on the Throne of David who has indeed returned with the culminative Revelation direct from God for all peoples, races and tongues. When Black Elk was nine years old his tribe was moving into the valley of the Little Big Horn in Montana and Black Elk has what he terms as his "Great Vision". In this vision Black Elk sees the four horses of the Apocalypse and the terrible war that happens as a result of the world walking the black road to self destruction. Black Elk says he hears the fiery winds of war like "wild beasts fighting".
These wild beasts are the offspring of the terrible "Beast" prophesied in the 13th chapter of the book of Revelation. It is the United Nations that is described in the book of Revelation as a "Beast" that has the body of a leopard, the feet of a bear, the mouth of a lion and eagles wings. Interestingly enough, these beasts are the same beasts described in the book of Daniel in the seventh chapter:
"And four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another. The first was like a lion and had eagle's wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand upon two feet like a man; and the mind of a man was given to it. And behold, another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side; it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth; and it was told, 'Arise, devour much flesh.' After this I looked, and lo, another, like a leopard, with four wings of a bird on its back; and the beast had four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrible and dreadful and exceedingly strong; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns." (Daniel 7:3-7)
These four beasts are the same four beasts described in the book of Revelation. The first is described in Daniel, as being a lion with eagles wings. These beasts are not literal beasts, but symbols of nations. The lion with eagles wings is England, for they have a lion on their pound note. But here it describes the beast as a lion with eagle's wings that are then separated into two beasts, a lion and the eagle's wings by themselves. What nation has as its symbol the eagle? The United States, and it was in 1776 that the 13 British colonies wrote their Declaration of Independence breaking away from England establishing themselves as a separate nation. Thus, the eagle's wings are plucked off of the lion. Then it says that the eagle's wings are made to stand upon the ground and the mind of a man is given to it. What is the essence of the mind of a man? Freedom of choice. And this was the first country to institute these concepts into their Constitution, The freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of the press, etc.
The next beast being described is the bear. This is the nation of Russia. Russia has had the symbol of the Russian bear for a long time. Then there is another beast that is like a leopard. In the book of Revelation it describes these beasts together, but in some instances, instead of their being a leopard, there is the face of a man. The nation of France had as its symbol the leopard because of the Germanic Tribes that made up the body of this nation during the Holy Roman Empire. these are also described as the four wings of a bird on its back and the four heads. there were four Germanic tribes that came together under the force of Charlemagne, the Francs, the Saxons, the Lombards and the Burgundians. The Francs had as their symbol the panther, and the way you say "Panther" in French is "Pard". The Saxons had as their symbol the lion, and the way you say that in French is "Leo". Together this is the leo-pard or leopard. These four nations were the four charter members of the United Nations and are described in the book of Revelation as being "united" together. But this is described as being a beast, or one that is without a spiritual life. This describes the United Nations perfectly because it was set up as a puppet for the United States government and the "New World Order" of the Trilateralists and the Bilderbergs who have been taking over a globally dominated financial network of power and influence.
Black Elk is told to walk the black road that leads to destruction and he finds a place at the end of the black road that is burning with fire and everything is dead. This place is where three rivers make a big one and a blue man lives there. This blue man, Black Elk says, is the cause of all the suffering and destruction in the world. This is interesting because there is another great prophet in history who also saw the coming of this blue man, Nostradamus. Nostradamus the 16th century French physician and astrologer, wrote of this blue man but described him as a man in a blue turban:
"A king enters in time wearing a blue turban, he will reign for less than a evolution of Saturn. The king with the white turban, his heart is banished to Byzantium: Sun, Mars and Mercury near Aquarius." (Cen. IX 73)
The one who wears a blue turban or blue hat is the United Nations troops and it is the United Nations.
It is the United Nations that has been the cause of catastrophes in places like Bosnia, where they made the Bosnian Muslims disarm and allowed the Serbs to commit such atrocities as the setting up of "rape camps" where 50,000 Muslim women and children were raped repeatedly while they killed their husbands and fathers. Somalia, where as an excuse they said they were going there to protect the country against destructive in-fighting among the warring tribes and when they got there they ran around making allot of noise and shooting people as a diversion so that Special Forces troops could go up into the northern tip of the horn of Somalia to secure the newly discovered offshore oil deposit in the gulf of Aden between Somalia and Saudi Arabia. In Iraq, where the Allied U.S. forces destroyed that country, targeting civilian population centers and infrastructure facilities like food storage and production plants, sewage treatment plants, water treatment plants, baby milk factories, etc. in direct and blatant violation of international law regulating rules of war. On top of which they also dumped hundreds of tons of radioactive waste in the form of "Depleted Uranium" or "D.U." projectiles which are bullets and missiles and bombs that have been "hardended" with depleted uranium that the U.S. nuclear reactors sold to the arms manufacturers.
After this destructive war the U.S. through the UN levied sanctions against Iraq that have been a direct cause of over 600,000 children dying through malnutrition, diarrhea, typhus, dysentery, all from lack of food and medicine and proper water treatment.
In the prophecies of Nostradamus he mentions another who is also involved in this scenario:
"Mabus shall come, and soon after shall die,
Of people and beasts shall be a horrible destruction,
Then on a sudden the vengeance shall be seen..."
(Century II 62)
"Mabus" is the mirror image of the name "sudaM" or Saddam Hussein and it is the intention of the President to kill Saddam Hussein.
This plan is also linked to being able to take control of the country of Iraq's oil reserves by getting rid of the president of the Ba'ath Party, who is also Saddam Hussein, because the Ba'ath party consolidated and nationalized the oil of Iraq. For the privately owned western oil companies to be able to acquire the oil of Iraq, they need to have the nationalized status of the oil to become "null & void" and this is done by decapitating the political party that has brought this into being. This "decapitation" is the death of Saddam Hussein whom will be proclaimed to be a martyr to the Muslim, Pan-Arab unification cause and the Muslims will rally together and take their "revenge" against the U.S./U.N. for the capture and killing Saddam Hussein.
The United Nations has exported a double standard against the Muslims throughout the world resulting in war after war. Because of this double standard against the Muslim people and the great destruction of the people of Iraq, and the death of Saddam Hussein, Nostradamus also predicts that the U.N. and all of New York city with it will be destroyed.
"At forty-five degrees the sky will burn, fire approaches the great new city: In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up." (Cen. VI:97)
Nostradamus goes on to say that nothing will keep the city from dying. The U.N. building has already been targeted for terrorist bombings by Muslims and with the proliferation of nuclear materials since the breakup of the Soviet Union there is much more of a chance now that the next terrorist bomb that is delivered to American soil will be a nuclear bomb.
Black Elk, in conjunction with the prophecies of Nostradamus, also sees this blue man being destroyed. Black Elk says he sees this place where three rivers make a big one - a source of mighty waters. This place is New York city that is situated on the East River the Hudson River and the Hackensack River that pours into Newark Bay leading out to the Atlantic Ocean.
Black Elk says that "something terrible was there." This is where the blue man lives and Black Elk goes on to say that all the world was sick and suffering and calling for the death of this blue man. Black Elk is given a bow that turns into a spear with lightning for its spear head and Black Elk stabs the blue man in his heart. As Black Elk stabs the blue man in his heart he says he hears a great rolling thundering come. This is that the heart of the United Nations is the United Nations building on Manhattan Island in New York city. The great thundering is the sound that comes forth at the explosion of the nuclear weapon that is going to be used to destroy it. Black Elk then says that the blue man turns into a harmless turtle. This is significant in Native American traditions in that the whole of the American continent is referred to as the great "Turtle Island". This is when the United Nations is destroyed and the power of these beasts is taken away, America will once again be a "harmless" peaceful place.
The Sacred Hoop of Nations
As this world goes through the fire of purification it will be cleansed of all the corruption and decay. Black Elk says that this will culminate in the "Sacred Hoop of Nations" where all the people of the world will come together in a great circle surrounding the Tree of Life. This tree is the Covenant of God to the people of the world and a genealogical tree that proves the lineage of the two Christs, Jesus and Baha'u'llah. As the meaning of the word Christ is a male lineal descendant of King David who's anointed, this is of utmost importance. This is why the New Testament opens by first proving Jesus to be a descendant of David by giving his genealogy. Through this genealogy you are able to recognize the Second Coming of Christ being a descendant of David and the sacred Covenant that the Return of Christ, Baha'u'llah, brings. Black Elk sees the Hoop of the world and describes it:
"Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understand more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes as they must live together like one being. and I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy."
Black Elk says that he was on the "highest mountain" and saw the "whole hoop of the world" this is also like a prophecy for the coming of this "House of Justice" that Baha'u'llah brings that is prophesied in the 2nd chapter of Isaiah:
"It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be raised above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it, and many people’s shall come, and say; 'Come' let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.' For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between nations, and shall decide for many people’s; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore."
This is the great Universal House of Justice that Baha'u'llah has brought for the remedy of a sick world! This is where, instead of the proliferation of “Nationalism”, our world will graduate to the level of considering the entire world one home and one family. Even as Baha'u'llah writes:
“Contrasting with, and irreconcilably opposed to, these war-engendering, world-convulsing doctrines are the healing, the saving, the pregnant truths proclaimed by Baha'u'llah, the Divine Organizer and Savior of the whole human race - truths which should be regarded as the animating force and the hallmark of His Revelation: ‘The world is but one country, and mankind its citizens.' ‘Let not a man glory in that he loves his country; let him rather glory in this, that he loves his kind.' And again: ‘Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch.' ‘Bend your minds and wills to the education of the peoples and kindreds of the earth, that haply ... all mankind may become the upholders of one order, and the inhabitants of one city.... Ye dwell in one world, and have been created through the operation of one Will.' ‘Beware lest the desires of the flesh and of a corrupt inclination provoke divisions among you. Be ye as the fingers of one hand, the members of one body.' And yet again: ‘All the saplings of the world have appeared from one Tree, and all the drops from one Ocean, and all beings owe their existence to one Being.' And furthermore: ‘That one indeed is a man who today dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race.'” (Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come, page 114)
In another vision Black Elk goes to the center of the circle and sees a man standing next to the tree whom he cannot distinguish. He says he is neither white nor Indian but that he was painted all in red. Red is the color of the Baha'i Revelation in that literally tens of thousands of people gave their life's blood as martyrs because of the vast persecutions that took place at the beginning of this message in Iran and Iraq. Whole families who would proclaim their adherence to the new revelation would be taken out into the streets by the people being incited by the fanatical Muslim clergy, and they would be butchered like cattle. Men, women and children, all gave their lives for the promotion of this cause.
Black Elk sees this man painted all in red and cannot recognize what kind of man he is, he is neither white nor Indian, because this is Baha'u'llah who was Persian and Black Elk had never seen a Persian man before. He goes on to say that this man then begins to turn into all colors of light. This is like the story of the "coat of many colors" of Joseph in the bible. This is representative of all the different peoples, races, cultures and religions Baha'u'llah is the fulfillment of.
Baha'u'llah, not only being the promised Messiah of the Jews and Second coming of Christ for the Christians is the 5th Buddha for the Buddhists, the Shah Bahrahm or "King of Glory" for the Zoroastrians, the 9th Avatar for the Hindus, the "Father Sun" for the Hopi, etc. Baha'u'llah is the one who fulfills all the worlds religions prophecies for the coming of their Promised World Redeemer who is to come at the end times. This is how all the world is unified, there is one common promise that brings all the people together.
White Buffalo Calf Woman
In the foreword to his book, “The Sacred Pipe”, Black Elk gives a message he says is of great importance. He says Christians say God sent His son and he was crucified and he agrees that this is true. But he proclaims that the Indians have also had the Great Spirit appear to them in the form of a four-legged animal that turned into a two-legged woman called the White Buffalo Calf Maiden, who gave them the sacred pipe. He says most people call it a peace pipe, yet there is no peace on earth. Black Elk says there is much talk of peace yet it is just talk. He then puts forth his prayer and his hope. He says, "Perhaps it may be, and this is my prayer, that through this sacred pipe and through this book ["The Sacred Pipe"] in which I shall explain what our pipe really is, peace may come to those peoples who can understand, an understanding which must be of the heart, and not just of the head alone. Then they will realize that we Indians know the One true God, and that we pray to Him continually" (The Sacred Pipe, p. 9).
The legend for the Lakota that is said to be the beginning of their way of life and their belief in "Wakan Tanka" or the "Great or Holy Spirit", is the legend of White Buffalo Calf Woman. It is White Buffalo Calf Woman who brought to the Lakota the Buffalo Calf pipe and the meaning behind this sacred object.
The legend says that in the beginning two warriors were away from their camp when they saw a beautiful woman dressed in white buckskin coming toward them.
“Seeing a high hill, they decided to climb it in order to look over the whole country. Halfway up, they saw something coming toward them from far off, but the figure was floating instead of walking. From this they knew that the person was wakan, holy. At first they could make out only a small moving speck and had to squint to see that it was a human form. But as it came nearer, they realized that it was a beautiful young woman, more beautiful than any they had ever seen, with two, round red dots of face paint on her cheeks. She wore a wonderful white buckskin outfit, tanned until it shone a long way in the sun. It was embroidered with sacred and marvelous designs of porcupine quill, in radiant colors no ordinary woman could have made. This Wakan [Holy] stranger was Ptesan-Wi, White Buffalo Woman. In her hands she carried a large bundle and a fan of sage leaves. She wore her blue-black hair loose except for a strand at the left side, which was tied up with buffalo fur. Her eyes shone dark and sparkling, with great power in them.” 
One warrior looked upon the beautiful woman with lust for her and he was immediately consumed by a cloud that, when lifted, revealed the warrior had been reduced to nothing more than a pile of bones and worms. The woman spoke to the other warrior and told him that she was bringing sacred things to his people's camp and to go and prepare for her arrival. When she arrived at the camp she instructed the people in the manner of prayer and the "Chanunpa" or sacred pipe. She told them that the stone of the bowl represented the buffalo and all flesh and blood of the red man. The wooden stem represents all that grows on the earth. The twelve eagle feathers that hang from where the bowl and the stem join are from Wanblee Galehska, the spotted eagle who is the Great Spirit's holiest messenger. After she had completed her instructions she bid the people good-bye and told them that she would one day return to them and walked away into the direction of the West changing into a white buffalo.
The White Buffalo
To many Indian people the prophecy for the return of the White Buffalo has been fulfilled in a female white buffalo calf named “Miracle” that was born to a couple on their ranch in Janesville, Wisconsin in August of 1994. To many who were interviewed by the press, they said this was to them like “the return of Jesus”. This is because the white buffalo calf is the herald for this great age of peace that is to come for all people, just like Jesus was the herald of the Kingdom of God on Earth.
But this also has another very important connection.
The physical birth of “Miracle” is representative of the “return” of the White Buffalo Calf Maiden. Today the Lakota believe that when Christ returns, Christ will be this woman. This can be compared to the Revelation that Baha'u'llah received, as Jesus received his revelation also from God while being baptized in the river Jordan.
“Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form, as a dove, and a voice came from heaven, ‘Thou art my beloved Son; with thee I am well pleased.'” (Luke 3:21-22)
The Revelation of the “Son of God” that Jesus received came to him in the form of a dove and it was at this time that Jesus became cognizant of the message that he was to give to the world. It was at this time that Jesus became “manifested” with the Holy Spirit and began to reflect the thought of God to the people.
Baha'u'llah, as the Second Coming of Christ, also had a point in time where He also became cognizant what message He was to manifest to the people and relates this experience. Baha'u'llah had this experience while Baha'u'llah was held a captive in chains in the dungeon prison of the Persian Empire in the year 1852 in Tehran, Iran:
“In His Suratu'l-Haykal (the Surah of the Temple) He thus describes those breathless moments when the Maiden, symbolizing the "Most Great Spirit" proclaimed His mission to the entire creation: "While engulfed in tribulations I heard a most wondrous, a most sweet voice, calling above My head. Turning My face, I beheld a Maiden -the embodiment of the remembrance of the name of My Lord - suspended in the air before Me. So rejoiced was she in her very soul that her countenance shone with the ornament of the good-pleasure of God, and her cheeks glowed with the brightness of the All-Merciful. Betwixt earth and heaven she was raising a call which captivated the hearts and minds of men. She was imparting to both My inward and outer being tidings which rejoiced My soul, and the souls of God's honored servants. Pointing with her finger unto My head, she addressed all who are in heaven and all who are on earth, saying: `By God! This is the Best-Beloved of the worlds, and yet ye comprehend not. This is the Beauty of God amongst you, and the power of His sovereignty within you, could ye but understand. This is the Mystery of God and His Treasure, the Cause of God and His glory unto all who are in the kingdoms of Revelation and of creation, if ye be of them that perceive.'" (Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By, pages 101-102)
The Revelation that Baha'u'llah received was in the form of this Divine Maiden of Heaven as it is prophesied in the Book of Revelation that this maiden also comes to the earth as the “New Jerusalem” that is the structure and organization of a world order of Peace and Justice. Baha'u'llah reflects this Revelation through His spoken and written words, which is the outline for God's Kingdom on earth. This is the fulfillment of the mission for the Second Coming of Christ.
The Revelation of Baha'u'llah has come to our world and has been given to us as a remedy for our world's sickness. The Divine Plan is for all the people's of the world to be a part of a world commonwealth of nations being built upon the explicit instructions of God. This Plan was given to our world over one hundred years ago, but as mankind continues to think that they have the better plan, our planet's sufferings multiply daily. The reason for these things is so that mankind is able to exercise its ability of free will. Without free will, the ability to choose, there can be not true love. For if people were forced to accept these things without their ability to choose it freely, there would be no true love for God and His Divine Plan for Humanity. As God Himself, through Baha'u'llah, says:
O SON OF BEING!
Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant. (Baha'u'llah, Arabic Hidden Words, page 5)
The purpose of our creation is so that we may evolve towards a true spiritual existence through knowing and loving God. The Kingdom of God on Earth is a physical world civilization that fosters the spiritual development of all Humanity, equally, with no one being left out no matter what race, religion or creed. As all waters eventually lead to the sea, all the world's races, religions, cultures, legends, prophecies, etc. lead to the ocean of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah who is the fulfillment of all the world's promises for a great world redeemer. The acceptance of which not being based on “Blind Faith”, but verifiable, scientific proof. As God wants the people of the world to love Him, He gives us a discerning intellect to discover the truth from a falsity and then gives His Promised Ones, His Messengers, a golden criteria of being able to discern who is a true Messenger of God and who is not. This golden criteria of God is that these individuals are all prophesied hundreds and even thousands of years before hand to come in the Name, the Date, the Mission and the Address they are promised to fulfill. Through this discernible criteria, you can discover who is a true Messenger of God and who is not. For there is only one person in all of history or all of the future who could ever have the Name that they are to have, be at the Place that they are to be at, at the Time that they are to come doing the very Thing they are prophesied to do. Only one person could ever fulfill all four parts of this criteria at the same time and this is the great “touch stone” of proof that God gives to His servants so they can find His Divine Messengers and then turn to them and be assured that what they are saying is directly from the mind of God Himself.
God has given to our world, in the last one hundred years, another opportunity for the people to turn to Him. We are now at the point in our lives, as Human Beings, that our entire creation has come into existence for. We are at the door, opening into a new age of spiritual enlightenment and peace and closing the door on the old age of greed, hate, war, and avarice. This is the time spoken of by all religions and cultures and the one who has brought this age is Baha'u'llah. But Baha'u'llah tells us that it was in this old age of greed and violence that whenever the True Spirit of God was given to a needy world, it was this same Spirit that would become darkened by the desires of Man. The True Spirit or Revelation would come through one of God's messengers and it was this message that would be made into a money-making business by a usurping clergy class. The true message would become distorted to perpetuate the power and influence of these self-appointed usurpers and throughout history this pattern has been repeated over and over again. Baha'u'llah explains:
“What "oppression" is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it? For opinions have sorely differed, and the ways unto the attainment of God have multiplied. 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.” (Baha'u'llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, page 31)
In this age of having to “Learn from our Mistakes” instead of just accepting God's Messengers according to God's golden criteria no matter who they are or where they come from, we must look towards the mistakes that the people of the past made to distinguish who is true. For instance the Christians look towards the mistakes of the Jews for not recognizing Jesus but in turn reject Muhammad whom Jesus foretold was going to appear. It is through this darkening or corruption of the message that the light of truth shines out the brightest for the people to recognize.
The Great Oppression
As Baha'u'llah told us that it is the “Essential feature of every revelation” this does not preclude His own. The Revelation of Baha'u'llah has also been usurped by a moneymaking clergy class disguised as “Administrators” of the Baha'i Faith. In 1957 the appointed head of the Baha'i Faith, Shoghi Effendi died and appointed a successor to himself in the form of what he called the “1st International Baha'i Council”. As Shoghi Effendi was the “guardian” of the faith his successor was circumvented and thrown out in favor of a usurping body of administrators of the faith called “Hands of the Cause of God”. These “Hands” were the assistants to Shoghi Effendi who lived on the Baha'i properties and buildings located on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel. They deceived the six million Baha'is throughout the world saying that Shoghi Effendi appointed no successor during his lifetime and thus nominated themselves to this position saying that they had to “seize control” of the Baha'i Faith and its organization to save it from ruin. The details of how the Baha'i Faith is to succeed from one individual to the next and finally to the appointed body of the “House of the Lord”, as prophesied in Isaiah Chapter 2, was clearly outlined in Baha'u'llah's “Covenant” which is a legal contract between God and His servants. This contract was blatantly violated by this self-appointed body of usurpers who have now erected an imitation to Baha'u'llah's Divine Plan for the “House of the Lord” as their “Universal House of Justice” presently located on the side of Mount Carmel in Israel.
The “distinguishing” member of this Universal House of Justice, as outlined in Baha'u'llah's Covenant, is supposed to be a male descendant of His which would be a descendant of King David as Baha'u'llah is a descendant of King David. This is in fulfillment of biblical prophecy that the descendants of David would be seated on an earthly throne forever (Psalms 89). The king seated at the head of the Universal House of Justice, according to the Covenant of Baha'u'llah, is not to be a despot, sole authoritative figure, but a member of the body of legislation who only has a vote of one and does not have veto power.
This is the Baha'i Revelation, for Baha'u'llah brought Justice and justice only can come when there is open consultation without the influence of any sole, authoritative power. The open consultation is between the representatives of the nations of the world so that through consultation the problems of the world are resolved instead of going to the field of battle where rivers of blood are shed. In the true Universal House of Justice all people's, races, nationalities, sovereignties, and cultures are represented and all have an equal vote of one. All the nations of the world are to be a part of the Universal House of Justice with no one country being left out. It is clearly outlined in Baha'u'llah's Covenant that the Universal House of Justice cannot come into existence without all nations of the world being represented. This representation comes in the form of having established National Houses of Justice in every country of the world where the different localities of that country would then also have Local Houses of Justice established that solve the difficult problems of the people at the local level.
The imitation of Baha'u'llah's plan set up by the usurping “Hands” does not fulfill any of the required details. It does not have a descendant of Baha'u'llah at its head as the guardian and there is not even one nation of the world that has a national House of Justice established in it. The imitation of the Covenant-breakers does not bring justice to the world and warfare and carnage continue. For how can you have peace without justice? It is impossible and the violators of Baha'u'llah's Covenant on Mount Carmel are responsible for depriving the world of the Divine Remedy prescribed for it by God.
With the coming of all of God's Holy Manifestations there has always been one individual designated to establish what the Manifestations themselves bring. With the coming of Moses there was Joshua who took the Children of Israel into the promised land. With the coming of Jesus it was Paul who established Christianity among the Gentile nations. With Muhammad it was Ali who established Islam. And with the coming of Baha'u'llah it is His Establisher who brings back to the world what the Covenant-breaking usurpers of Baha'u'llah's revelation took away. This is the reality of the Return of the White Buffalo, for it is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah that is the Divine Maiden of Heaven that has been kidnapped and it is the Establisher of Baha'u'llah who returns this Revelation to its rightful place.
The person who fulfills the prophecies for Baha'u'llah's Establisher is the great Messenger Spirit who appears in the West. This person was born in August in the year 1914 near the area of Jainsville, Wisconsin where the White Buffalo Calf “Miracle” was born. He is a third generation Baha'i whose grandparents were among the first Baha'is in North America. It is the Establisher of Baha'u'llah who brings the true Revelation back to the world emanating from the western land of America. He fulfills, as Baha'u'llah fulfilled, prophecy by Name, Date, Address and Mission in the Holy Scripture and is the one promised by Baha'u'llah and His son Abdu'l-Baha to be the appointed messenger who comes and establishes the Kingdom of God on Earth. This person is the Great Spirit's messenger symbolized by Wanblee Galeshka, the eagle messenger, the highest flying and holiest of all Wakan Tanka's messengers.
As Baha'u'llah's Establisher comes to a darkened and sick world as both Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l-Baha did, the light that he reveals to the world is nothing more than the same light that emanated from these two central figures of the faith. But because he comes as a reformer and re-establishes the original Divine Plan that had been thrown out, he is derided and mocked and scorned as all Promised Ones of God have been in the past. This person comes as a “High Priest” or high educator, as the word “priest” means “educator”. He educates those who are willing to see beyond the veils of prejudice and opposition that have been erected between himself and the people. Like in the days of Jesus when that Divine Soul exposed the corruption of the clergy of His day, it was the clergy of the Pharisees, the Sadducees and the Scribes who would do and say anything to keep the people away from the truth that Jesus gave. They derided Jesus in every way they could. Manipulating opinion, and using false pretense to prejudice the people. Because Jesus didn't eat and drink with them, they said “he is not one of us”. And because Jesus ate and drank with the people of the street and the prostitutes, they called him a “glutton and a wine bibber” who consorted with the “evil one” and sinners. They called Jesus “Beelzebub” and the devil, a breaker of the Sabbath and a blasphemer. Today the same is said of Baha'u'llah's Establisher who the self appointed clergy class of his day, the members of the Universal House of “Justice”, Administrators, Continental Board of Counselors and Hands of the Cause of God, call him everything in the book. But they have not spent time with him. Have not heard him speak or seen the brilliance of the light of the Cause which emanates from his countenance. AS Abdu'l-Baha himself describes of this person in a Tablet published in 1915:
“Verily that Infant is born and exists and there will appear from his cause a wonder which thou wilt hear in future. Thou shalt see Him with the most perfect form, most great gift, most complete perfection, most great power and strongest might! His face glisteneth a glistening whereby the horizons are illumined! Therefore, forget not this account as long as thou are living, for as much as there are signs for it in the passing centuries and ages.” (Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha, page 484)
Abdu'l-Baha tells the Baha'i World not to forget about this person, for there are signs for his coming in the passing “centuries and ages”. This is telling the people that this individual is prophesied to come! That he is foretold to appear centuries and ages in the past. This person Abdu'l-Baha is describing is not Shoghi Effendi, because he tells us that he is an infant. When this Tablet was published Shoghi Effendi was going to college in England. But that one who is the Establisher of Baha'u'llah who exposes the corruption and usurpation of the Covenant-breaking Hands and all that follow them and reveals the truth of the Covenant to the world, was born in 1914 and was but a babe when this Tablet was published! Though the Baha'i World who have fallen into the pit of error by swallowing the lies of the Hands, continue to heap scorn and rejection upon this one prejudicing the people against him, he continues to triumph and makes clear the words; “Behold the confusion that hath befallen the tribes of the defeated!”
The Sacred Pipe
The White Buffalo Calf Maiden brought to the Lakota the Sacred Pipe which Black Elk says some call a “Peace Pipe” but he says how can it be called a “Peace Pipe” when there is no peace in the world? The Sacred Pipe that White Buffalo Calf Maiden brings is a symbol of what the Maiden brings. The Maiden is the Maiden of heaven that came to Baha'u'llah and is God's Revelation that Baha'u'llah reflects. Through the message that Baha'u'llah brings, it is a message of peace through justice, which Baha'u'llah outlines in His “House of Justice”. This Universal House of Justice is comprised of two things, the Legislative and the Executive as Abdu'l-Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah and Exemplar of the Baha'i Faith relates in his Will & Testament:
“The legislative body must reinforce the executive, the executive 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.” (`Abdu'l-Baha, Will and Testament, page 15)
These two forces are represented in the Sacred Pipe the White Buffalo Calf Maiden from Heaven brings. The Sacred Pipe is two parts joined together, the stem and the bowl. The bowl is symbolical for all the people and the stem is made of wood being representative of all that grows. These two things being joined together are the two forces of Baha'u'llah's Universal House of Justice. The legislative body is comprised of representatives of all the people of the world which is the bowl of the Sacred Pipe. The Executive head or guardian is representative of the stem of the pipe which is made of wood. It is the guardians who are seated at the head of the body who are part of this genealogical tree of the lineage of king David. This is represented by the spirit of growth through the lineage of the genealogical family tree of David. Through the stem of the Sacred Pipe the smoke is drawn and expelled to the four directions. This is how the stem, being symbolical of the guardian or executive of the council, is the “mouth piece” of the body who expounds the decisions of the council to the people of the world. It is this close union between these two forces that justice and peace will be established.
The Twelve Feathers of Wanblee Galeshka
The twelve feathers of Wanblee Galeshka, the Great Spirit Messenger, are the twelve apostles of Wanblee Galeshka, the Establisher of the Baha'i Faith. As the Covenant-breaking Baha'is on Mount Carmel threw out God's plan of peace, it is Baha'u'llah's Establisher who comes and re-establishes what the Covenant-breakers threw out. This is the 1st International Baha'i Council that Shoghi Effendi set up as the first stage in a four-stage process to the final development as the Universal House of Justice. The 1st International Baha'i Council was like a baby that the Covenant-breaking “Hands” aborted and it is the Establisher of the Baha'i Faith who comes and sets up the Second International Baha'i Council with the descendant of David at its head. The body of the second International Baha'i Council is comprised of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, as it is these individuals who are described in the book of Revelation who make up the foundation of the New Jerusalem, or Law of God. These twelve feathers hang on the Sacred Pipe where the stem and the bowl come together. This Great Spirit Messenger, Wanblee Galeshka, sets up the second International Baha'i Council as the first stage to its final evolvement into the Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah. These twelve feathers hang off of the pipe because it is these twelve individuals who establish through their efforts the foundation of decision making for the future Universal House of Justice.
It is Wanblee Galeshka who is this person who has brought this promise and who has now come and fulfills prophecy for the return of the White Buffalo, the Bahana of the Hopi, Quezacotal of the Aztecs, kulkulkan of the Mayans, Itzamna of the Itzi Indians and on and on as well as the great Messenger Spirit of Jesus returned to Establish his Father's (Baha'u'llah's) Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
As Wovoka proclaimed to his people that Christ had come and that he was on earth but appeared like a cloud, this is saying that he will not be recognized. As the clouds in the sky appear and block out the true light of the sun, so also do the very existence of these Promised Ones, appearing as regular people, block the rest of the world from recognizing them. Christ has already come and the people failed to recognize Him. So we are headed toward World War III and the people will be looking up into the physical sky for an expectation that will not be fulfilled. This booklet is to inform you of the promise that has already been fulfilled in Baha'u'llah and his Establisher that have come to the world and that this is what the Ghost Dance and the White Buffalo were all about. But there is more, much, much more to this story. This message is the real McCoy and deserves investigation for we are at the time now for the people to start to prepare for this great destruction that is almost upon us. We are very serious, this is the most important message you will ever hear. Investigate now and take the time to see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears. Do not look to the clergy for the answers for they are the ones throughout history who have always tried the hardest to keep the people from the truth. Jesus condemns the clergy class of his day and the clergy class of today. The Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant here in Missoula, Montana are now preparing for this great destruction. We have a limited amount of time before the people will begin to see these things coming and when you are able to actually see these things coming, it may be too late to prepare. No money is solicited for any reasons, as the "water of life is without price."
