His Names Given,
"And I praise and glorify the first sea which hath branched from
the ocean of the Divine Essence, and the first sun which hath
risen in the Heaven of Eternity, and the first fire which was
lit from the lamp of Pre-Existence in the lantern of singleness:
He who was Ahmad in the kingdom of the exalted ones, and Muhammad amongst the concourse of the near ones, and Mahmud
in the realm of the sincere ones . . ." (Writings of
Baha’u’llah, p. 3).
The first sea, the first sun,
the first fire, all means the First Begotten Son of God.
So this Baha’i prophecy is about the next return of the First
Begotten Son of God, and the prophecy reveals His birth name –
Maitreya’s birth name was Muhammad Hussein.
"Such in particular is the case with the divine reality of the
Most Great Name, the Abha Beauty. When He standeth revealed unto
the assembled peoples of the world and appeareth with such
enchantments - alluring as a Joseph in the Egypt of the
Spirit . . ." (Writings of Abdul-Baha, p. 65).
In this prophecy Abdul-Baha
compares the next Prophet of God (Most Great Name) to Joseph.
Maitreya was given the name Joseph, and He is the
fulfiller of this prophecy.
"Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon
it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph,
the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his
companions:… 'Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with
them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my
sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore." (Ezekiel
This is a two-fold prophecy: The
first part is about the coming of the Christ to the children of
Israel (first stick), which was previously fulfilled.
The second concerns Joseph, coming to the people of Ephraim
and establishing the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
This latter prophecy is fulfilled by Maitreya, whose
Joseph, and who has come to the peoples of Ephraim (United
Children of Abram (Abraham), All Prophecies Are Fulfilled)
and who through
THOTH, has brought the means by which God’s Kingdom
can be established.
was indeed the herald of the second Coming of Christ, and a
summoner to the pathway of the Kingdom.
It is evident that the letter is a member of the Word . . . that
is, it deriveth its Grace from the Word." (Writings of
Abdul-Baha, p. 64)
In this prophecy we see
Abdul-Baha explain that one of the names of the Second Coming of
Christ would be known as Emmanuel. Maitreya
fulfills this prophecy as He was given the name Joseph Emmanuel.
Also, we know that this prophecy refers to Maitreya,
because it mentions the Word that Maitreya has brought to
humanity in our teachings.
He also has received the Sacred
Name of the Son ().
This Name that merges with the Name of God (),
is known as the Holy Name (Word).
It is this Holy Name that Maitreya Initiates His Disciples
(The Chosen) with.
This fulfils the Prophecy that: He will come in the Name of
the Father and the Son, also My Name is in Him!
Hindus are waiting for
Kalki Avatar to come with the name Kumar
(Prince). Maitreya also received the name Vigi Kumar while He
was in Ananda Marga.
