EVERY time a Promised One of God comes he is rejected by the people that he comes to, or as in the case of Moses, by the Pharaoh of Egypt. Moses gave the Pharaoh ten proofs, which consisted of ten plagues. When Jesus came, the Jews were waiting for the coming of a Messiah that would free them from the Roman yoke and set them up in ascendancy over the whole world. But when Jesus Christ came he fulfilled none of their expectations which led to his crucifixion. The first thing that he established was a new criteria for the recognition of a Promised One that was different than the criteria of Moses. To show that he was the promised anointed Christ, he presented his lineage back to King David. This is recorded in the first chapter of the New Testament (Matthew 1:6-17).

Then he showed that he was prophesied by name, address, date and mission.


He was prophesied to come in the name Emmanuel, in the Hebrew language, which is Jesus in the Greek:

Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name EMMANUEL. (Isaiah 7:14)

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us... And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he [Joseph] called his name JESUS. (Matthew 1:23, 25)

This showed that he was prophesied to come by Isaiah.


Jesus also showed that he was prophesied to come in Bethlehem, the address for the coming of the Messiah.

And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. (Matthew 2:5, 6)

He was prophesied to come in Bethlehem by Micah:

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting. (Micah 5:2)

The fulfillment of Micah's prophecy was explained by Matthew: "Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea..." (Matthew 2:2). This shows that Jesus came from Bethlehem. This is where the wise men found him.


For the Advent of Jesus Christ, the prophet Daniel gave seventy weeks from the order of Artaxerxes on March 21st, 457 BC until the Messiah (Jesus Christ) is cut off. In seventy weeks there are 490 days and according to the Holy text each day is as a year (Numbers 14:34). That is, there were four hundred and ninety years from the order of Artaxerxes to the crucifixion of Christ. That is, Jesus was crucified at the age of 33 in 34 AD. For a fuller explanation refer to 'Abdu'l-Baha in Some Answered Questions, pp. 48-49.

But in the twenty-fifth verse of the ninth chapter of the Book of Daniel this is expressed in another manner of seven weeks and sixty-two weeks and one week, the week of the Covenant. It took seven weeks, or 49 years, after the order to rebuild Jerusalem (issued on March 21st, 457 BC) for the city to be rebuilt. In 408 BC the city was rebuilt including the walls and the moat. Then there was an interim period of sixty-two weeks, or four hundred and thirty-four (434) days/years, between the rebuilding of the city and the last week. That brings us to March 21st, 27 AD, when John the Baptist began his ministry. Three and one-half (3-1/2) years later he baptized Jesus on September 21st, 30 AD (Luke 3:21-23):

Then the Spirit of God descended on Jesus saying, Today I have begotten [1] thee to be my Son. (Luke 3:21-23, footnote "k," RSV)

And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being... begotten of Joseph as the son of Joseph... which was the son of Nathan, which was the son of David. (Luke 3:23, 31)

Then three and a half (3-1/2) years later on March 21st, 34 AD, Jesus was crucified. Jesus at the age of 33 in 34 AD was martyred. See Some Answered Questions by 'Abdu'l-Baha, p. 48 for a more detailed explanation.

There are 490 years from the Order of Artaxerxes in 457 BC until the crucifixion of Jesus as is shown on the following scale:—

Profession or Mission

'Abdu'l-Baha tells us that there were seven Universal Divine Manifestations. Four of them came before Adam [2], but there are no traces of them left, as they were wiped out in great world upheavals. The three in the Adamic cycle are Adam (Sydyk), Jesus and Baha'u'llah. The other six were local, that is, for specific people—such as Moses came for the Israelites. Jesus, being a Universal Manifestation, had a message for the entire world. He told his Apostles and disciples to go out and teach the nations. He left no administration. His mission in general, being in the potency of the Son, was to spiritualize the nations, that is, to free them from sin by having them stop sinning and await the coming of the Revelation in the potency of the Father, Baha'u'llah. He said: "For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man [a man] be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father" [Baha'u'llah] (Mark 8:38 RSV), Who would bring the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. That is, Jesus was the herald to the nations for the coming of the Kingdom of God. His death on the cross did not free men of their sins, but his message, which he gave his life for, would free them from sin. That is, Jesus' mission was to free men of their sins:

Therefore he [Jesus] is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred which redeems them from the transgressions under the first covenant [of Moses]. For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. For a will takes effect only at death, for it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. Hence the first covenant was not ratified without blood. (Hebrews 9:15-18) ...But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself, and after that comes judgment, so Christ [Jesus], having been offered once to bear sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:26-28 RSV)

Jesus freed those that accepted him from having to follow the Laws of Moses, that is, they wouldn't be sinning by not following Moses' Laws. This way he freed them from sin.

Here also Jesus has established a criteria to show his authenticity. That he was prophesied to come in the Name, Address, Date and Mission. Now there may have been other people that were named Jesus, or EMMANUEL, and some of them might have come from Bethlehem. But there was only one person in this entire world who was prophesied to come in the name of EMMANUEL, or Jesus; who had a forerunner that came in 27 AD and baptized him when he was about 30 years of age in 30 AD, and who was crucified at 33 years of age in 34 AD. Only one person fulfilled the prophesied mission of a suffering Messiah (a descendant of King David) depicted in Isaiah chapter 53. Only one person in this world could have possibly fulfilled these criteria. Now we need to put this to the test to see if one is to come who is prophesied by Name, Address, Date and Mission, thus fulfilling the criteria for the coming of a Promised One of God.


Baha'u'llah in His Proclamation said that He, "the Ancient Beauty ruleth upon the throne of David." His genealogy that is found in history books shows that His genealogy is in an unbroken chain of father-to-son descendants of King David seated upon the throne of David. This throne is a real throne with seven steps. The difference between Baha'u'llah's and Jesus' genealogy is that none of Jesus' ancestors sat upon the throne of David except David himself.

When Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem, he brought King Jehoiachin and the throne of David that he sat upon into Babylon. He placed Jehoiachin in prison where he remained for 37 years. Then another king seated on the throne of Babylon, Evil-merodach, took Jehoiachin (or Jeconiah) out of prison, dressed him back into his royal robes and placed him back on his throne of King David in Babylon (2 Kings 25:27-30). Jehoiachin's son, Shenazzar, moved from the city of Babylon to the Area of Pure Lineage, where he built a temple using some of the material of the one that was destroyed. Shenazzar succeeded his father on the throne in Babylon. Jehoiachin and Shenazzar and his descendants remained in the country of Babylon and were called exilarchs, meaning King David's lineage in exile. They survived well in the Zoroastrian empire, then in the Greek empire, then the Parthian empire, then under the Sassanian Dynasty. Many of the Parthians converted to Judaism. Then at the start of the Muslim empire the Davidic King, Bostanai, married Princess Dara, the daughter of Yazdegird III (the last king of the Sassanian Dynasty), by the matchmaking of Ali, the successor of Muhammad (being the first of twelve Imams). Thus Baha'u'llah gets His lineage back to King David through Bostanai and His lineage from Zoroaster through Dara. In 817 AD the Exilarch [3] Isaac Iskoi Ben Moses was converted to Islam by Imam Ali al-Rida [4]. They then, for protection, moved from the area of pure lineage to Mazindaran, and the lineage continued on to Baha'u'llah Who was born in 1817 to Mirza Buzurg, the Grand Vizier of the Shah of Persia.

When Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon, being a Zoroastrian believing in the One True Invisible God, he made an edict allowing some Jews to go back to the site of Jerusalem that was destroyed and to rebuild their temple. He didn't let any of the exilarchs nor the throne of David go back to Jerusalem. He chose Zerubbabel as his subject to be the governor of Jerusalem, who was a descendant from David but not of the lineage of David seated on the throne. (See this genealogy in Luke 3:23 from Jesus to Zerubbabel (Luke 3:27) and then to Nathan, a son of David (Luke 3:31) who was not seated on the throne.) Nathan was the brother of King Solomon, the reigning son of David. Therefore Jesus said that his kingdom was not of this world.


Baha'u'llah is prophesied by name so many times throughout the Bible that to give them all would be too much. I will just give the ones that are the most known and used. This occurs in the 43rd chapter of Ezekiel. Here I will give the Aramaic word that the English word was translated from:

Afterward he brought me to the gate [Bab], even the gate [Bab] that looketh toward the East: And, behold, the glory of the God [Baha'u'llah] of Israel came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters [multitudes, many nations, peoples and tongues[5]]: and the earth shined with his glory [Baha'i]. (Ezekiel 43:1, 2)

As the glory of the Lord [Baha'u'llah] entered the temple [His mission] by the gate [the Bab] facing east [the Bab on the west side of the Euphrates], the Spirit lifted me up, and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord [Baha'u'llah] filled the temple [the great Revelation of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven]. (ibid., verses 4, 5 RSV)

While the man was standing beside me, I heard one speaking to me out of the temple; and he said to me, "Son of man [a man], this is the place of my throne [the throne of David] and the place of the soles of my feet [literally meaning this man "Baha'u'llah" has feet], where I will dwell in the midst of the people of Israel [those that strive with God] for ever.... (ibid., verses 6, 7 RSV)


Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate facing east. And behold, the glory of the God [Baha'u'llah] of Israel came from the east.... (Ezekiel 43:1, 2 RSV)

Baha'u'llah came from the east near the city of Tehran, Iran in the Province of Mazindaran, the site of the throne of King David that Baha'u'llah's father sat upon, whereas the Bab appeared west of Mazindaran. Thus Baha'u'llah came from the east to Mt. Carmel in Haifa, Israel.

The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the Majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord [Baha'u'llah], the majesty of our God. (Isaiah 35:1, 2 RSV)

The valley of Sharon is the land between the foot of Mt. Carmel and the Mediterranean. Baha'u'llah established that Mt. Carmel would be the site of His new world order. He indicated that the site of the true House of Justice would be built on top of Mt. Carmel. At present the top of Mt. Carmel is not Baha'i property, therefore the Covenant-breakers don't have their phony House of Justice on the site indicated by both Baha'u'llah and prophecy [6]. The Covenant-breakers have their Headless Monster House of Justice on Golomb Street where it belongs. The meaning of the word "Golomb" is "an evil, man-made monster without a soul, deformed, no head." God would not allow the Covenant-breaking "Hands" to corrupt the top of Mt. Carmel with their evil, mad, Headless Monster.

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain [Mt. Carmel] of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. (Isaiah 2:1, 2)


Daniel gave four dates for the coming of Jesus Christ. The first one, as we have already shown, applied only to Jesus of Nazareth. The disciples of Jesus Christ wanted to know when he would return:

As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?" And Jesus answered them, "Take heed that no one leads you astray...."
(Matthew 24:3-5)

Then Jesus told them to turn to Daniel the prophet for the dates:

So when you see the desolating sacrilege spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand). (Matthew 24:15 RSV)

Daniel gives three dates for the return of Jesus Christ. Jesus said that he was the Door (Bab) of the sheep:

So Jesus said again to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door [Bab] of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers; but the sheep did not heed them. I am the door [Bab]; if any one enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
(John 10:7-9 RSV)

Jesus didn't speak English, therefore he didn't say "door" but the Aramaic word "BAB". Daniel gave the date for the return of Jesus as The BAB. Daniel said that it would be for 2300 days, then the sanctuary would be cleansed:

"For how long is the vision concerning the continual burnt offering, the transgression that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and host to be trampled under foot?" And he said to him, "For two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary shall be restored to its rightful state."
(Daniel 8:13, 14 RSV)

'Abdu'l-Baha tells us that this is figured from the order to restore Jerusalem in 457 BC. It was figured from this date as this was the same date given by Ezra for the rebuilding of Jerusalem. The temple had already been built but they did not cleanse the sanctuary. Thus the sanctuary was never cleansed. Jesus said that his blood cleansed the sanctuary in heaven; he didn't cleanse the sanctuary here on earth. To cleanse the sanctuary it would take a sacrifice as great as the one Jesus made. 'Abdu'l-Baha said that the 2300 days are 2300 years. From the order of Artaxerxes in 457 BC there are 456 years to the birth of Christ, and from the birth of Christ until the manifestation of the Bab there are 1844 years. When you add 456 years to this number it makes 2300 years. The fulfillment of Daniel's vision took place on March 21st, 1844. This is the date the Baha'i calendar began. The return of the manifestation of Jesus, the Bab, made his Proclamation on May 23rd, 1844. The sanctuary can only be cleansed with blood. The sanctuary was cleansed with the blood of the Bab and 10,000 of his followers in martyrdom. In the temple of Moses the sanctuary is the Ante-chamber to the chamber of the Holy of Holies. The sanctuary is symbolic. It pertains to the Revelation of the Bab. The Holy of Holies pertains to the Revelation of Baha'u'llah. Later on there will be graphics that explain this very well.

Daniel gives the date for the return of Jesus as the Christ in the twelfth chapter:

At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time; but at that time your people shall be delivered, every one whose name shall be found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.
(Daniel 12:1-4 RSV)

The meaning of the word "Michael" is "Who is like God." [7] The ones who are like God are the Divine Manifestations, who are the intermediaries between God and Man. This "Michael" refers to Baha'u'llah, the great prince, for He was to succeed His father that sat upon the throne of David. Baha'u'llah fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah chapter nine:

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will do this. (Isaiah 9:6, 7 RSV)

Christians think that this applies to Jesus Christ, as they have the belief in the trinity (a Pagan concept) and that Jesus is God, that God became incarnate in Jesus, and that Jesus' physical body resurrected and went up into the sky and will literally return on a cloud. Therefore they believe that all the prophecies for future Promised Ones were already fulfilled in Jesus of Nazareth. The Muslims likewise believe that there is not going to be another Promised One after Muhammad, as Muhammad said that he was "the seal of the prophets." Therefore, like the Christians, they believe Jesus will descend bodily from the sky. Thus, this way of thinking prevents the people of this belief from recognizing the One sent to them by God as prophesied in Holy Scriptures, such as the Bab, Baha'u'llah and today, the return of Jesus the High Priest after the Order of Melchizedec. Their prejudices prevent them from even considering the possibility.

To begin with, only the first two statements in Isaiah 9:6, 7 could apply to Jesus: He was born and he was a son, as this applies to all men. None of the rest of the prophecy could apply to Jesus. He did not have the government upon his shoulders. The only thing on his shoulder was carpentry. The only thing he said about government was to give unto Caesar the things that are of Caesar's. Jesus claimed to be the Son, not the Father. Also he did not claim to be the Prince of Peace. He said he did not come to bring peace, but a sword. [8] Had he claimed to be the Prince of Peace, he would have been the biggest failure of all time, as we have had nothing but war in the world ever since his coming. He also did not sit upon the throne of David, as the throne of David remained in Babylon. While Jesus was hanging on the cross at Jerusalem, an exilarch—a descendant of King David—was seated on the throne of David in Babylon. This shows how stereotyped and erroneous people are in their thinking and beliefs.

There has never been such a time of trouble as we have today. And it says that at this time every one whose name that is found written in the book will be delivered. This means every one that is prophesied by name will be delivered (delivered—to be freed from restraint, evil, danger, etc.). That is, they will be recognized by the people who are awake, those who are non-indoctrinated and looking for the truth. Those who are asleep in the dust of the earth (materialism) will awake (becoming knowledgeable), some to everlasting life and others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise (who use their intellect and independently search for the truth) will shine like the brightness of the firmament, like the stars forever and ever. Daniel was told to seal the book until the time of the end, meaning that no one would be able to understand the meaning of the prophecies until the one comes at the end that fulfills the prophecy. Therefore the Covenant-breaking, "mainstream Baha'is" don't understand the prophecies for the return of Jesus the High Priest after the Order of Melchizedec, Jesus the Lamb with 7 horns and 7 eyes, who is to come at the end of the six-thousand year cycle that began with the prophet Adam in 4000 BC. We are now coming to the end of this cycle, and the return of Jesus explains the meaning of all of these prophecies. It is today that people are running to and fro with all the rapid transit, and knowledge has increased 10,000 fold since 1844. We have gone from the horse and buggy to putting a man on the moon.

Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand. (Daniel 12:10 RSV)

The wicked are those that refuse to use their intellects that God gave them by refusing to go by the principle of "Independent Investigation of the Truth" that Baha'u'llah gave them, making them Covenant-breakers. This is about the worst thing that could possibly happen to anyone. Therefore they remain ignorant unto death. They are bound under the restraints of the violators. The wise are those that use their intellects that God gave them and independently investigate the matter for themselves, unrestrained. Jesus said, "seek ye the truth and the truth will make you free." They become free from the oppression of the Covenant-breakers.

And from the time that the burnt offering is taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. (Daniel 12:11 RSV)

Jesus continued the burnt offering in the Eucharist. It was Muhammad that did away with all ritual of sacrifice. 'Abdu'l-Baha tells us that these 1290 days are 1290 lunar years. They are from the Proclamation of Muhammad to the Proclamation of Baha'u'llah. Baha'u'llah made His Proclamation in 1280 A.H. (After the Hegira—the start of the Muslim calendar). Muhammad made his Proclamation ten lunar years prior to the Hegira (the flight of Muhammad from Mecca to Medina). When you add these ten lunar years to 1280 you have 1290 lunar years. Thus Baha'u'llah came at the prophesied date for His Advent, which in the Christian calendar is April 21st, 1863.

The Mission of Baha'u'llah

Being the Prince of Peace, Baha'u'llah is to establish peace in the world. In order to have peace there must be justice. The world really never did have justice. Each Manifestation accentuates a certain quality of God: Moses = obedience to the law, Krishna = detachment, Zoroaster = purity, Buddha = meditation, Jesus = love, Muhammad = submission, and Baha'u'llah = justice. In order to have justice Baha'u'llah gave us the Universal House of Justice. In order for the Universal House of Justice to be just, it had to be infallible. In order for it to be infallible, it had to be erected including all the ingredients put forth in 'Abdu'l-Baha's Will and Testament, that is, to have both the executive branch, which is a descendant of King David, and a legislative branch, the membership of which was appointed by Shoghi Effendi. It was supposed to go through four stages: 1. International Baha'i Council; 2. a World Court; when its body became elected by a number of Baha'i nations it would become 3. the International Baha'i Tribunal; and when all nations became Baha'i it would then be elected by all the nations and would be 4. the Universal House of Justice. Throughout all these four stages it would be infallible, for the perfections of the adult are in the embryo. Shoghi Effendi, on January 9th, 1951, set up an infallible embryonic Universal House of Justice which he named: the first embryonic International Baha'i Council. This was dismantled by the Covenant-breaking "Hands" and then it was brought to America by the executive branch. On January 9th, 1991, exactly forty years later to the day, it was reassembled by the return of Jesus, the Lamb, as the second International Baha'i Council. Right after New York City—the City of the Covenant—is nuked, this second International Baha'i Council will become the World Court.

Baha'u'llah, in the Tablet of the Holy Mariner, tells us that the Covenant-breaking Baha'is will be driven off of Mt. Carmel by a burning meteor. They had determined to establish Divine Unity by going against the Arabian Youth, Shoghi Effendi:

They have desired to ascend unto that state which the Lord hath ordained to be above their stations. Whereupon the burning meteor cast them out from them that abide in the Kingdom [Davidic] of His Presence. And they heard the Voice of Grandeur raised from behind the unseen pavilion upon the Height of Glory [Baha]: 'O guardian angels! Return them to their abodes in the world below [hell].' (Tablet of the Holy Mariner, Baha'i Prayers, pp. 223, 224)

This meteor is prophesied throughout Holy Scriptures. One of the places is in the book of Revelation:

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood. (Revelation 8:8; 16:3)

An asteroid is a large chunk of stuff, sometimes as big as a great mountain. When it enters the atmosphere of the earth it becomes red hot from the friction, and then it is called a burning meteor. Some of the seers predict that this meteor will hit in the Mediterranean Sea somewhere near the Aegean Sea, that is, somewhere near Greece and Turkey. It will cause a tidal wave possibly a mile high. It will then wipe off those bozos on Mt. Carmel meeting on Golomb Street who think they can thumb their nose at Shoghi Effendi, and thus God, and not suffer severe retribution, both in this life and the next. This meteor will cause the great earthquake also prophesied in the book of Revelation. It will hit with such speed, velocity, large size and weight that it will go right down to the bottom of the Mediterranean and so jar the earth that it will be felt all over the earth, causing tremendous destruction.

And the seventh angel [Jesus II] poured out his vial into the air [TV]; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven [second IBC] from the throne [Davidic], saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city [Jerusalem] was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell... (Revelation 16:17-19)

'Abdu'l-Baha explained the seventh angel in Some Answered Questions, p. 66. He said the seventh angel was a man that would come [in the future], and he would establish in this world the Divine Manifestation of Baha'u'llah and His Kingdom, as the Covenant-breakers did away with the Kings of the Kingdom, and thus the Kingdom. He said:—

The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise [will come into being] with heavenly qualities and character. Voices will be raised [by his followers], so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation [Baha'u'llah] will be proclaimed and diffused.... In that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom [Davidic] will be established. (Some Answered Questions, p. 66)

Name, Address, Date and Mission

Baha'u'llah came in the prophesied name, "Baha'u'llah." He didn't choose that name. He was born Hussein Ali, but the Bab renamed Him "Baha'u'llah" and this was before He knew that He was the Promised One. His cognizance came later when He was in the Black Pit (Siyah Chal) of Tehran and the angel came to Him and told Him that He was the One.

He fulfilled the prophecies given in Holy Scriptures for the address where He would appear. He came from the East to Acca and Mt. Carmel. He didn't come there of His own volition but as a prisoner, against His will.

He fulfilled the prophecy of Daniel for the date for the second coming of Christ on April 21st, 1863, when He made His historic Proclamation in the Rose Garden across the Euphrates from Baghdad, Iraq.

He gave the laws, ordinances and teachings for the Kingdom of God on earth, fulfilling the prophecies for His mission being the Prince of Peace. His Revelation is based upon Justice. Any peace without justice is tyranny. His House of Justice has the Davidic lineage as its president. This fulfills the Covenant that God made with David: that his lineage seated upon his throne would last forever (Psalm 89). This is important, for it distinguishes Baha'u'llah's House of Justice from man-made ones. Those that don't have a descendant of David as its head are bogus.

There were four Czars of Russia who were sympathizers, or friends, of the Babi and the Baha'i faith. Czar Nicholas I was instrumental in having Baha'u'llah released from the Siyah Chal (the Black Pit) where He was a prisoner in chains.

While in Akka Baha'u'llah wrote to Czar Alexander II of Russia, who is famous for beginning his reign by implementing Baha'u'llah's reforms, such as immediately ending the Crimean War, lifting the censorship of the press, establishing educational reform at the universities, lifting the restrictions on travel, and most significantly, abolishing serfdom in the first Edict of Emancipation on March 3rd, 1863, all of which won for him the popular title "the Czar Liberator." He corresponded with Abraham Lincoln stating that if Lincoln freed the slaves, he would free the serfs. Of course Lincoln established the Emancipation Proclamation similar to that edict of the Czar; all of which has its origin in Baha'u'llah. He was unable to implement the World Court himself, as he was assassinated for freeing the serfs. This was passed to his grandson, Nicholas II, who called the nations together at the Hague, thus revealing Baha'u'llah's plan for a World Court to settle disputes instead of going to war. He was so eulogized for coming up with such a brilliant idea that it went to his head, and he took the credit himself. Therefore he failed to proclaim Baha'u'llah. Thus without a Davidic King seated at its head, the World Court failed and lead us to World War I.

President Wilson's daughter embraced the Baha'i faith, and it was due to her influence that her father set up the League of Nations. He died a broken man in spirit as he was unable to get the United States to join, and thus he didn't proclaim Baha'u'llah. Because it did not have a Davidic King as its president, it failed, and we had World War II.

President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor had embraced the Baha'i faith but didn't declare it, as it wasn't politically sound. His plan was to set up the United Nations, and as the atom bomb was nearing completion, his plan was to call the heads of nations to the Nevada proving grounds, explode an atomic device for them to see its total destructive power and then proclaim Baha'u'llah. He was then going to put the atom bomb under the control of the United Nations and have all the nations simultaneously disarm. But he died just before the bomb was exploded, and President Truman didn't go along with President Roosevelt's plan. Truman said, "We've got the bomb. Now the world can dance to our tune." As a result there was no simultaneous disarmament, and most importantly, there is no descendant of Baha'u'llah (a descendant of King David) seated as the president in the United Nations. As a result we will have World War III.

God was gracious. He gave us another chance for peace. God had Shoghi Effendi to make a plan to set up a World Court on Mt. Camel in 1963 with a descendant of David seated at its head. Shoghi Effendi did this when he set up the first International Baha'i Council with Baha'u'llah's grandson ('Abdu'l-Baha's son) as president. As this is a hereditary position, 'Abdu'l-Baha's son would be the Davidic president of that World Court. Then when the body became elected, this Davidic descendant would be the president of the International Tribunal that was to bring peace to the world. Then all the nations would join and it would effloresce into the Universal House of Justice. We would have the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. But those Covenant-breaking "Hands" did away with all this. Now you and all your family and friends will witness all the horrible destruction that wayward mankind will have to suffer in World War III.

I have shown that Baha'u'llah has fulfilled the criteria given by Jesus Christ of name, address, date and mission. It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Baha'u'llah, and no one else, is the second coming, or the second Christ, as prophesied in scriptures, as well as showing that the criteria of Jesus is sound and accurate.

There may have been other people who assumed the title of Baha'u'llah. Some of them may have gone to Mt. Carmel to make their claim. But there was only one person in this world Who was named Baha'u'llah; Who went to the address, Mt. Carmel, as a prisoner in chains against His will; Who made His Proclamation on the date given by Daniel for the second coming or the second Christ; and Who fulfilled the prophecies for the mission of the second Christ, as He was a descendant of David seated on the throne of David. Baha'u'llah continued this lineage that is to last forever in His Covenant by appointing His son, 'Abdu'l-Baha, to succeed Him on the throne, who continued that lineage by adopting a son. Baha'u'llah's House of Justice was delineated by 'Abdu'l-Baha in his Will and Testament as the Universal House of Justice. 'Abdu'l-Baha appointed Shoghi Effendi to carry out 'Abdu'l-Baha's Divine Plan to set up the Universal House of Justice, which he did by setting it up, due to necessity, in four stages. This four-stage plan was to bring peace to the world. But the Covenant-breaking "Hands" did away with Shoghi Effendi's plan. Because of this the world will go through the prophesied four winds of destruction which will come in four great waves, each following the other. The first wave is upon us.

This shows that the criteria given by Jesus of Name, Address, Date and Mission is indeed the criteria to recognize the one sent by God. This criteria is sometimes called the business or calling card of a professional. That is, people use the same method to determine the identity of a professional or business person as God uses to determine the ones He sends. A business card gives the name of the person, the business or profession that he is in, the address where he will be found, and the date or time that he will be there. For instance, John Brown (his name) is a lawyer (his profession). He has his office (address) at 310 Main Street in Racine, Wisconsin, and the office hours (or date) when he will be in his office. With these four things on his business card—name, address, date and profession—anyone in this country could take a bus, a train, fly, drive or walk to John Brown's office and find him there. There may be a million people named John Brown in this country, but there is only one person named John Brown at that address, at that date and in that profession in this entire world. Isn't it clever that people use the same method to identify themselves that God uses to identify His Promised Ones?

Anyone who claims to be a Promised One from God who isn't named in the lesser Covenant or is not prophesied by name, address, date and mission is a lying impostor. God uses this foolproof method to protect the people from following false and dangerous leaders. Anyone claiming to be a manifestation from God ere the passing of a full thousand years is a lying impostor. However, 'Abdu'l-Baha tells us that Jesus with his twelve Apostles will return, and he doesn't mean that he will come out of the sky. Therefore he would have to fulfill the criteria of coming in name, address, date and mission, or he would be a lying impostor. As I have mentioned earlier, Jesus has returned and he has fulfilled this criteria.



Notice here Jesus was begotten when he was baptized by John when he was about 30 years old, showing that God was not his physical father as the Christians believe: "God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son." This refers to after Jesus was baptized by John: The heavens opened and the spirit of God descended on Jesus saying, 'This is my only begotten Son,' which is the Revelation in the potency of the Son that God gave Jesus. The Word was the begotten Son, not Jesus. He was called the Son because he gave that Word or Revelation. [back]

2 "We have been taught that BAHA'O'LLAH was the Seventh of a series of great World (Universal) Manifestations of this present cycle, Christ being the sixth, Melchesidec (Adam) the fifth, while the first four were before the compilation of our present world history, and of them we have no records;" (Abdu'l-Baha, Questions and Answers, Star of the West, Vol. 1, No. 12, p. 2-3) [back]
