The Future of the Cause of Baha置値lah

My husband just came across this in a book he was reading and I felt the need to share it with everyone!

For, great and marvellous as have been the achievements of the past, the glory of the golden age of the Cause, whose promise lies embedded within the shell of Bah癇u値l疉痴 immortal utterance, is yet to be revealed....

Fierce as may seem the onslaught of the forces of darkness that may still afflict this Cause, desperate and prolonged as may be that struggle, severe as may be the disappointments it may still experience, the ascendancy it will eventually obtain will be such as no other Faith has ever in its history achieved. The welding of the communities of East and West into the world-wide Brotherhood of which poets and dreamers have sung, and the promise of which lies at the very core of the Revelation conceived by Bah癇u値l疉; the recognition of His law as the indissoluble bond uniting the peoples and nations of the earth; and the proclamation of the reign of the Most Great Peace, are but a few among the chapters of the glorious tale which the consummation of the Faith of Bah癇u値l疉 will unfold.

The Dawn-Breakers: Nabl痴 Narrative of the Early Days of the Bah癇 Revelation, p. 667

Yes, that is the Guardian's text, and he was kind enough not to go into detail about the bumpy road that will lead to that goal.

Best,

I for one am ready to go down that road... I am tired of waiting at the stoplight.

I understand the feeling of waiting for the bumpy road, it's coming, may we warn the world. The Lord has come, the Lord has come

Hallelujah!
I just hope I live long enough to see it and so I can be of help.

I actually expect to live long enough to see a particularly prominent bump, the moment before it annihilates me and my dear ones.

We are not in for a pleasure ride.

It does appear this is gaining momentum. Speaking with a friend about this often as the news each day points towards the much needed big changes.

You would also see this each day at work, as you work in a particulary difficult occupation.

The Faith must soon arise from obscurity, as there is this aspect we feel would preceed any prominent bump!

Meanwhile we do what we can.....it seems harder and harder to find ears that wish to hear!

All the best with you and family Gnat and to all that pass this way for a read.

Regards Tony

Majority of the world have not heard of Bah'u'll疉 I do wonder if they are at fault in Gods eyes for not actually seeking the manifestation .. 'Those who strive for us we shall surely guide them' ... . It's very hard to find a listening ear true very true although there are many receptive to

I imagine the road feels very bumpy in some regions at the moment.

I remember being stood in a Christian Church congregation in the 80s and hearing the preacher read predictions of the coming of Jesus and thinking that actually they might have missed it, then I started to link what I knew about the Bah' Faith and I had a bit of a Eureka moment.

It is scary to live in a world where we can see the old world order collapsing around us and inspiring to know that the springtime buds of the New Order are just waiting to burst open.

Good morning

Imagine you are an ant living on a suburban block, with many nice "homes" in the yard and in the building. Then, one day, all these huge noisy things come into that block, and begin tearing down the building. The huge round things attached to the big noisy things squash many of our fellow-ants, and the actual process of the destruction of the building destroys many more. Then finally, these noisy things go away, and other noisy, but small things come in, and they cover the ground with liquid stone that becomes hard as stone, and destroy many more of our fellow-ants. Indeed, we too may be one of those ants destroyed.

But in the end, they all leave, and the remaining ants discover that there are innumerable places for new secure homes, and the new building has innumerable nooks and crannies which also make nice secure new homes.

After such a lengthy period of trauma and insecurity, the ants making these new homes, grow and expand again.

Until the old building had been removed, the new building could not be built. Yet, unseen, the Master Architect has been and is preparing for the new building - indeed, the "idea" and planning for the new building is the signal for the destruction of the old building. He has many who are His "staff", putting in place all the preparation - materials, structure, function, purpose, models etc. As the new building gets underway finally, these "staff" swing into further and greater action, "employing" more people, communicating with the not-yet-involved community(ies), and, as the building continues to arise from where they had cleared away the debris of the old building, find that more and more people become involved and find tasks which they can eminently perform as the structure grows. The "staff" had and continue to teach people not just about the material aspects, but also of the essence and purpose and function of the new building.

Truly, not only do we live in exciting times, but we have been greatly honoured to be "employed" as "staff" by the Master Architect to oversee all the work that goes into building the new building, before, during and, at a future time, after the building is complete.

Have skimmed, but yet to read. Very very interesting. Will comment more when digested.

One has no choice but to be happy when "employed" on the "staff" of the Master Architect Health? Well, getting older, with what they entails

Last I heard, you were overseas. Still there, or returned to Aussie (Oi Oi Oi) ?

With my most warm greetings

Romane
