Re: Chicago Tribune Article

Janice…you’re a marvelous example for us all. This is the Baha’i Faith we’re talking about and thus I do have faith that things will be put aright. Baha’u’llah in the Iqan tells us that this oppression of His own Faith must come:

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. For this reason, in all chronicles and traditions reference hath been made unto these things, namely that iniquity shall cover the surface of the earth and darkness shall envelop mankind.

(Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Iqan, p. 31)

Baha’u’llah says “every Revelation” which would also include His own, meaning the Baha’i Revelation would become “oppressed”. So, for what it’s worth, I have faith that this oppression will, at some time, be lifted so that all may know the truth.

My posts have all been in the direction of the Aghsan lineage, which is the continuation of the Throne of David, which is the “Kingdom” that is referred to in the bible and the Baha’i scripture. But, as I was taught by the Establisher, we also must teach about the Catastrophes that are upon us and are continuing to increase in their ferocity. But these continuous wars are nothing new to the people of the world, it is almost as if they are used to the idea of continual and devestating war, non-stop. These wars will only increase and the devestation only more severe. The 9/11 event in NYC was an event that was continually warned of by the BUPC through TV, radio, and press releases years before it happened and it will happen again, but again, musch more severely. But wars and bombings and people flying planes into buildings are standard fare these days. Baha’u’llah warns of these destructions as well as how the Covenant-breakers will be driven out.

“Study the Tablet of the Holy Mariner that ye may know the truth, and consider that the Blessed Beauty hath fully foretold future events. Let them who perceive, take warning!”


Glorified be my Lord, the All-Glorious! They have desired to ascend unto that state which the Lord hath ordained to be above their stations.

Glorified be my Lord, the All-Glorious! Whereupon the burning meteor cast them out from them that abide in the Kingdom of His Presence,

Glorified be my Lord, the All-Glorious! And they heard the Voice of Grandeur raised from behind the unseen pavilion upon the Height of Glory:

Glorified be my Lord, the All-Glorious! “O guardian angels! Return them to their abode in the world below,

Glorified be my Lord, the All-Glorious! “Inasmuch as they have purposed to rise to that sphere which the wings of the celestial dove have never attained;

(Compilations, Baha’i Prayers, p. 222)

So it is prophesied by Baha’u’llah that a “burning meteor” will cast them out from the “Kingdom of His Presence”. This is Mount Carmel where the Covenant-breakers have been abiding in the King of His Presence for fifty years after declaring “Bada”. I do not envy their plight. So I think things will work themselves out, in fact, I have the greatest Faith they will.
