Baha’i Sabbath: Ilm/Knowledge 15, 177 B.E. (10/30/2020)

Friday, October 30th, 2020

“O HUMAN BEINGS! Surely We have created you from a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other. Surely the noblest of you with Allah is the most dutiful of you. Surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.”(Qur’an, Al-Ḥujurāt)
Dear friends,
This Thanksgiving will be the 400th year anniversary of the first thanksgiving in America since Plymouth Rock in 1620 AD.
The “400 years” prophecy from the Book of Genesis represents the 400 years of Industrial and chattel slavery during the scientific and industrial Revolution and its many wars, enclosure acts, violation of treaties and agreements with the indigenous peoples, and the slavery of the soul of man to the false god of money, power and greed for material things.
This time is now up–Now is the time for the peoples of the world to be set free and redeemed by God for the prophesied time has come: and the souls are awakening on their couches of slumber, turning to God and His Plan–and toward no other.
We are happy to announce the publication of Victor Woods’ book: NOSTRADAMUS PROPHECY! at this time for a guidance to the nations and peoples of the world. It is available free as a pdf (see link below) and in full color hard copy. This book fully depicts the current scenario of the global crisis, the election dilemma of 2020, the “Trilaterist and Trump” Prophecy of Daniel Chapter 7, and the GOLDEN AGE of the KINGDOM of God promised to follow the prophesied catastrophes of plague, famine, disease, economic collapse, quarantine, and starvation that accompanies this current war over oil and religion.
The Days of the Covenant Nov. 26-28, 2020 begins the one year final countdown to the 100th anniversary of the activation of the sacred Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha (The CHARTER of the KINGDOM, see World Order of Baha’u’llah, p. 144) on November 28, 2021. Nov. 28, 2020 to Nov. 28, 2021 is the final year to the Centenary of the Covenant.
The Baha’i Faith is a way of life. It is a way of life for independently minded spiritual people. It is an unorganized religion, that provides a social structure –through the power of the Covenant–for spiritual people to assemble, work together, and cooperate. Through worldwide global cooperation of the Oneness of Humanity–we can all transform this planet together into the garden paradise it is meant to be, with clean energy, clean air, clean water, and environmentally friendly high tech so we can communicate, travel and visit with one another.
The purpose in life to know and love God is fulfilled only in the acts of getting to know and love one another. This is why Christ gives these two as the greatest commandments: to love God above all else with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul, and to love your neighbor as yourself. John takes it so far as to say: ‘he who says he loves God whom he hasn’t seen, and hates his neighbor who he has seen, that man is a liar’ (1 Jn 4:20).
In getting to know one another, we get to know the diversity in God’s creation–because God created all human beings with the capacity to know and love God and therefore to know and love each other. In fact God made it so that we cannot really know and love God at all unless we are able to connect to know and love another as human beings first. This is usually the loving parents who care for the child from birth–who are the recipients of God’s love unto the baby–and these good parents have had good teachers too!!! Where did it all start?
The first human beings to break through the anamalistic survival barrier that prevents us all from associating more closely spiritually, are the First Teachers amongst us. The first teachers, are the first ones to reach out and proclaim the universal love of God found to be hidden within all things and then next (after they pointed it out) obviously manifested by all things that reflect the qualities and attributes of the One True Invisible God, the Great Spirit, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, etc.
The greatest or purest reflection of the qualities and attributes of God (that appears to greater and lesser degrees in all things) is the HUMAN BEING.
The greatest or purest among Human Beings are the First Teachers (primordial educators) or the Manifestation of the qualities and attributes of God in its entire, whole and complete form. These are the Human Beings who are born with an innate relationship to The Creator of the Universe and everything in it, who are different than the rest of the people, such that God Himself speaks through them, in that they are born with special equipment, so to speak, (the holy spirit/logos/word) that enables them to receive the thought of God and give it in a revelation.
In getting to know and love Them, we come to know and love God. They teach that God teaches we should get to know one another and our very own selves in order to deeply come to know and love God and feel the great satisfaction of that reunion, relationship and spiritual bond and tie. Through knowing and loving these Great teachers who are human beings–they teach us in our relationship with them, how to be more human, more loving, more gentle, more kind, more compassionate, and more patient with ourselves and one another, and in so doing deepen us in our own patience in God.
These Teachers, teach the Oneness of Humanity. People they appeared to called this “religion.” Religion literally means to bind together or to join like a bundle of sticks.
All society, family, and civilization comes from the ties of love that bind us together in community and family–as first taught by these First teachers. When we do this under God, in God and thru God, we all become happy, because we love God, we trust wholly in God, and we love His Plan for us.This is what They taught us: to be happy with God, and through God and for the sake of God: to love one another.
That’s pretty basic, but it is true.
These natural bonds of affection that are innate to human beings cooperating together in their own species is then rarefied and spiritualized so we can cooperate lovingly in a high tech advanced scientific manner while retaining our spiritual and moral foundations in the goodness of God’s natural reality.
Thus “religions” created greater and greater common unities or communities until there were seven like the seven colors of the rainbow. ADAM–indigenous; MOSES–Judaism; KRISNA–Hinduism; ZOROASTER, Zoroastrianism; BUDDHA, Buddhism; JESUS, Christianity; MUHAMMAD, Islam.
Like the SEVEN COLORS, these seven vanish into the Clear Light of Baha’u’llah.
All colors are contained in the clear light.
The Baha’i Faith is not another world religion to add to these seven heavens that God gave. No. Instead it reveals the source of all as the one true invisible light itself. In that clear Light of God, we too, see clearly!
The Baha’i Faith is a way of life. It is the Way of the Oneness of Humanity. The Way of the Covenant. The good red road, etc. It is a way of life, where our eyes are opened up to God, and He reveals unto us what He will. “God created the Wish through itself, then He created the things through the Wish.”
“O HUMAN BEINGS! Surely We have created you from a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other. Surely the noblest of you with Allah is the most dutiful of you. Surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.”(Qur’an, Al-Ḥujurāt)
In Service,

Holy Day: Birth of the Bab, Ilm 5, 177 B.E. (10/20/2020)-Solar Calendar

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020


ALL praise be to Thee, O my God, inasmuch as Thou hast adorned the world with the splendour of the dawn following the night wherein was born the One Who heralded the Manifestation of Thy transcendent sovereignty, the Dayspring of Thy divine Essence and the Revelation of Thy supreme Lordship. I beseech Thee, O Creator of the heavens and Fashioner of names, to graciously aid those who have sheltered beneath the shadow of Thine abounding mercy and have raised their voices amidst the peoples of the world for the glorification of Thy Name.

O my God! Thou beholdest the Lord of all mankind confined in His Most Great Prison, calling aloud Thy Name, gazing upon Thy face, proclaiming that which hath enraptured the denizens of Thy kingdoms of revelation and of creation. O my God! I behold Mine own Self captive in the hands of Thy servants, yet the light of Thy sovereignty and the revelations of Thine invincible power shine resplendent from His face, enabling all to know of a certainty that Thou art God, and that there is none other God but Thee. Neither can the power of the powerful frustrate Thee, nor the ascendancy of the rulers prevail against Thee. Thou doest whatsoever Thou willest by virtue of Thy sovereignty which encompasseth all created things, and ordainest that which Thou pleasest through the potency of Thy behest which pervadeth the entire creation.

I implore Thee by the glory of Thy Manifestation and by the power of Thy might, Thy sovereignty and Thine exaltation to render victorious those who have arisen to serve Thee, who have aided Thy Cause and humbled themselves before the splendour of the light of Thy face. Make them then, O my God, triumphant over Thine enemies and cause them to be steadfast in Thy service, that through them the evidences of Thy dominion may be established throughout Thy realms and the tokens of Thine indomitable power be manifested in Thy lands. Verily Thou art potent to do what Thou willest; no God is there but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

This glorious Tablet hath been revealed on the Anniversary of the Birth [of the Báb] that thou mayest recite it in a spirit of humility and supplication and give thanks unto thy Lord, the All-Knowing, the All-Informed. Make thou every effort to render service unto God, that from thee may appear that which will immortalize thy memory in His glorious and exalted heaven.

Say: Glorified art Thou, O my God! I implore Thee by the Dawning-Place of Thy signs and by the Revealer of Thy clear tokens to grant that I may, under all conditions, hold fast the cord of Thy loving providence and cling tenaciously to the hem of Thy generosity. Reckon me then with those whom the changes and chances of the world have failed to deter from serving Thee and from bearing allegiance unto Thee, whom the onslaught of the people hath been powerless to hinder from magnifying Thy Name and celebrating Thy praise. Graciously assist me, O my Lord, to do whatever Thou lovest and desirest. Enable me then to fulfil that which will exalt Thy Name and will set ablaze the fire of Thy love.

Thou art, in truth, the Forgiving, the Bountiful.

Baha’u’lah, Tablets, Ch. 17: Excerpts From Other Tablets


The Báb was a young merchant of the Pure Lineage. He was born in the year one thousand two hundred and thirty-five [A.H.] on the first day of Muharram, 1 and when after a few years His father Siyyid Muḥammad-Riḍá died, He was brought up in Shíráz in the arms of His maternal uncle Mírzá Siyyid ‘Alí the merchant. On attaining maturity He engaged in trade in Búshihr, first in partnership with His maternal uncle and afterwards independently. On account of what was observed in Him He was noted for godliness, devoutness, virtue, and piety, and was regarded in the sight of men as so characterized.
