As it is been established in our teachings, the Fifth Seal
(Revelation) brought to humanity by Bab (and Bahá'u'lláh).
Also as it is explained in commentaries on the
chapter three of the Revelation (read
Revelation of the Revelation) the one's who are slain for
the Words of God are the followers of Bab who were martyred in great
numbers (and of course all other Saints who also have reached this
state of Oneness, to be with God).
Here in the
Tablet fifteen of the Revelation (also quoted below) of the
Revelation (chapter six of the book Revelation) the same people with
the white robes (followers of Bab who are now in Heaven and are
close to God, “under the alter”) are asking when the judgment (Last
Days), the Last Revelation of God, etc. will come. The answer
is “they should rest yet for a little season.” That is shortly
after Bab's (Bahá'í's) Revelation and Mission. This is the
Revelation and Time that it is promised to them in the verses below.
Therefore, we can see again that Bahá'í's are incorrect that the
next Revelation will come one thousand years later after Bab/Bahá.
Also they are incorrect that the Revelation from God will continue
forever (periodically a Major Manifestation will come) as it is not
Scriptural. God surely has Revealed in His Scriptures that
there Will Be a FINAL Revelation and Final days that God will be no
longer a Mystery (Revelation
10:7). So again as God Reveled in chapter three of the
Revelation Bab/Baha'i teachings is not perfect and their belief is
not all correct. Also it will take another thousand years
before the Whole Truth (The Last Major Manifestation) will come!
"And when he had opened the fifth seal,
I saw under the altar the
Souls of them that were slain for the word of
God, and for the testimony which they held:" (Rev. 6:9)
<1>This seal is the fifth seal
The Greatest Sign (), the nine-armed star, which is the symbol of
Baha'i Faith. It symbolizes universality.
<2>As described before, many Saints of this religion were
slain for the word of
God (their belief which came by their Prophet), "and for the
testimony which they held."
"And they cried with a loud voice,
saying, How long, O Lord,
holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them
that dwell on the earth?" (Rev. 6:10)
white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said
unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until
their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed
as they were, should be fulfilled." (Rev. 6:11)
robes were given to them, which corresponds to the promise that if
they overcome the pitfalls of the fifth church (fifth seal) they
will be given
white raiment (Rev. 3:5).
<4>They have reached the state
where they can see
God (Matthew 5:8). So they were crying for justice.
<5>However, they should wait, "for a little season." Baha'i
came in the 1800's. So the judgment should come sometime after this
revelation which is in this century.
