Heralds of His Faith

Good morning

Following up from another thread.

Quote:
Bahá’u’lláh, speaking of these very ones who were attacking and decrying Him, said, “They are My heralds; they are the ones who are proclaiming My message and spreading My Word. Pray that they may be multiplied, pray that their number may increase and that they may cry out more loudly. The more they abuse Me by their words and the greater their agitation, the more potent and mighty will be the efficacy of the Cause of God, the more luminous the light of the Word and the greater the radiance of the divine Sun. And eventually the gloomy darkness of the outer world will disappear, and the light of reality will shine until the whole earth will be effulgent with its glory.”
'Abdu'l-Baha, Promulgation of Universal Peace, pp. 436-7
So worry not, fear not. All things work to the furtherance of His Cause.

With warm greetings

Romane

Indeed. Work for the Cause; it spreads. Deny the Cause; it spreads. Fight against the Cause; it spreads.





"Another theme repeatedly announced in the Tablets revealed in the early days of 'Akká is the invincibility of the Cause of God and the impotence of its enemies to destroy it. In one of these Tablets Bahá'u'lláh assures the believers that tribulations inflicted upon Him in the path of God will never render Him powerless, nor will the winds of trials succeed in extinguishing the lamp of His Cause, a lamp whose radiance, He states, has illumined the whole world. He affirms that no measure of persecution and suffering which the enemy may heap upon Him is capable of depriving Him of His sovereignty and power, and He declares in majestic language the ascendancy of His Cause, an ascendancy such that if all the peoples of the world were to rise up against Him and attack Him with drawn swords from every direction they would be impotent to destroy His Cause. In the midst of the most harrowing afflictions He would proclaim that He was the Glory of God revealed for all who are in the heavens and all who are on earth."

Dear Romane - Yes we are yet to see the times that Shoghi Effendi has written about (IMHO)

I feel it can not be too far away as the Universal House of Justice helps us on the way to prepare for entry by Troops, when this happens the battle will begin......The Battle to hold Love and Justice Aloft.

Will we be ready? Pray God we will - Regards Tomy

Nothing escapeth His knowledge. He, verily, hath manifested that which was hidden, when He, upon His return, mounted the throne of the Bayán. All that hath been sent down hath and will come to pass, word for word, upon earth. No possibility is left for anyone either to turn aside or protest. As fairness, however, is disgraced and concealed, most men speak as prompted by their own idle fancies."

My beloved friend Romane

Yes indeed all works to God's plan.

I echo aidan's post, truly God's plan is all mighty and will not fail.
