A Message to the Bah's
and also the whole humanity


"Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years, such a man is assuredly a lying impostor. We pray God that He may graciously assist him to retract and repudiate such claim. Should he repent, God will, no doubt, forgive him. If, however, he persisteth in his error, God will, assuredly, send down one who will deal mercilessly with him. Terrible, indeed, is God in punishing! Whosoever interpreteth this verse otherwise than its obvious meaning is deprived of the Spirit of God and of His mercy which encompasseth all created things. Fear God, and follow not your idle fancies. Nay, rather follow the bidding of your Lord, the Almighty, the All-Wise" (Gleanings CLXVI).

Dear Bah's of the World,

Like many Bah's, I had always believed that the above verse in Gleanings (and the identical verse found in the Kitab-i-Aqdas) was clear and precise in its conviction that NO other Manifestation of God should be expected to be manifested to humanity after Bah'u'llh's Dispensation except for a full expiration of one thousand years. Because of this belief you can imagine the skepticism I had when I discovered Maitreya's website ( After a month of searching, I had received reassurance from both my intellect and from heaven that Maitreya was the promised Manifestation of all time! I thought I would write down my conversion experience so that other seeking Bah's might be able to recognize the Supreme Manifestation, Maitreya.

All of the proofs found in this essay are from Bah' Scripture, and are intended to be used by seeking Bah's to discover the truth about the Mission of Maitreya. God's Blessings to all His family, Sal-Om.


There are many places in Bah' Scripture(s) that confirm that a third Manifestation of God (the third revealed letter of the greatest name) is to be Manifested in the West (namely in America). The section found below will have Scriptural proofs of where the Seventh Angel's trumpet will sound (it is also appropriate to note for prophetic fulfillment purposes that although Maitreya was born in Persia, He waited until He was in the United States before He began His ministry and Dispensation). In Bah' Scripture we find:

"O phoenix of the immortal flame kindled in the sacred Tree Bah'u'llh (may my life, my soul, my spirit, be offered up as a sacrifice unto His lowly servants) hath, during His last days on earth given the most emphatic promise that, through the outpourings of the grace of God and the aid and assistance vouchsafed from His Kingdom on high, souls will arise and holy beings appear, who, as stars would adorn the firmament of divine Guidance; illumine the dayspring of loving kindness and bounty; manifest the signs of the unity of God; shine with the light of sanctity and purity; receive their full measure of divine inspiration; raise high the sacred torch of faith; stand as firm as the rock and immovable as the mountain; grow to become luminaries in the heavens of His Revelation, mighty channels of His grace, means for the bestowal of God's bountiful care, heralds calling forth the name of the one true God, and establishes of the world's supreme foundation.

"These shall labor ceaselessly by day and by night, shall heed neither trial nor woes, shall suffer no respite in their efforts, shall seek no repose, shall disregard all ease and comfort, and, detached and unsullied, shall consecrate every fleeting moment of their life to the diffusion of the divine fragrance and the exaltation of God's holy Word. Their faces will radiate heavenly gladness, and their hearts be filled with joy. Their souls will be inspired, and their foundation stand secure. They shall scatter in the world, and travel throughout all regions. They shall raise their voices in every assembly, and adorn and revive every gathering. They shall speak in every tongue, and interpret every hidden meaning. They shall reveal the mysteries of the Kingdom, and manifest unto every one the signs of God. They shall burn brightly even as a candle in the heart of every assembly, and beam forth as a star upon every horizon. The gentle breeze wafted from the garden of their hearts shall perfume and revive the souls of men, and the revelation of their minds, even as showers, reinvigorate the peoples and nations of the world." (Bah' World Faith, p. 354)

"Issue forth from your cities, O peoples of the West and aid your God ere the Day when the Lord of mercy shall come down unto you in the shadow of the clouds." (Selections from the Writings of the Bb)

"At the third resurrection the sun will rise from the West." (The Heavenly Tablet, p. 25).

"Your mission is unspeakably glorious. Should success crown your enterprise, America will assuredly evolve into a center from which waves of spiritual powers will emanate, and the throne of the Kingdom of God will in the Plentitude of its majesty and glory be firmly established." (God Passes By, p. 254)

"The American continent giveth signs and evidences of very great advancement. Its future is even more promising, for its influence and illumination are far reaching. It will lead all nations spiritually." (Ibid)

"May the inhabitants of this country. . . rise from their present material attainment to such heights that heavenly illumination may stream from this center to all the peoples of the world." (Ibid)

"The East hath verily been illumined with the light of the Kingdom. Ere long will this same light shed a still greater illumination upon the West. Then will the hearts of its people be vivified through the potency of the teachings of God and their souls be set aglow with the undying fire of His love." (The World Order of Bah'u'llh, p. 79)

"All countries, and all cities and villages are on an equal footing . . . However, the dweller confereth honor upon the dwelling, some of the countries achieve distinction, and attain a preeminent position. For instance, notwithstanding that some of the countries of Europe and of America are distinguished by, and surpass other countries in, the salubrity of their climate, the wholesomeness of their water, and the charm of their mountains, plains and prairies, yet Palestine became the glory of all nations inasmuch as all the Holy and divine Manifestations from the time of Abraham until the appearance of the Seal of the Prophets, have lived in, or migrated to, or traveled through, that country. Likewise, Mecca and Medina have achieved illimitable glory, as the light of Prophethood shone forth therein. For this reason Palestine and Hijaz have been distinguished from all other countries. Likewise, 'is His remarkable disclosure, to the continent of America, is, in the eyes of the true God, the land wherein the splendors of His light shall be revealed, where the mysteries of His faith shall be unveiled." (Challenging Requirements of the Present Hour, pp. 27-28)

Also in Bah' Scripture we find many references to the appearance of the next Manifestation of God:

"...We must always anticipate, always be hopeful and Pray to God that He will send unto us His holy Manifestations in Their most perfect might, with the divine penetrative power of His Word, so that these heavenly Ones may be distinguished above all other beings in every respect, in every attribute, just as the glorious sun is distinguished above all stars." (Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 467)

"I am not apprehensive for My own Self, My fears are for Him Who will be sent down unto you after Me, Him Who will be invested with great sovereignty and mighty dominion." (The World Order of Bah'u'llh, p. 117)

"By those words which I have revealed, Myself is not intended, but rather He Who will come after Me. To it is witness God, the All Knowing ...Deal not with Him as ye have dealt with Me." (Ibid., p. 117)

".... these holy, divine Manifestations are and must always be distinguished above all other beings in every attribute of glory and perfection in order that it may be proven that the Manifestation is the true Teacher and real Trainer; that He is the Sun of Truth, endowed with a supreme splendor and reflecting the beauty of God...The real Manifestation of God must be endowed with divine knowledge and not dependent upon learning acquired in schools. He must be the Educator, not the educated; His standard, intuition instead of tuition. He must be perfect and not imperfect, great and glorious instead of being weak and impotent. He must be wealthy in the riches of the spiritual world and not indigent. In a word, the holy, divine Manifestation of God must be distinguished above all others of mankind in every aspect and qualification in order that He may be able to train effectively the human body politic, eliminate the darkness enshrouding the human world, uplift humanity from a lower to a higher kingdom, be able through the penetrative power of His Word to promote and spread broadcast the beneficent message of universal peace among men, bring about the unification of humanity in religious belief through a manifest divine power, harmonize all sects and denominations and convert all native lands and nationalities into one native land and fatherland." (Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 467)

There has never been a doubt among Bah''s that they would eventually be visited by another Manifestation, as this teaching is the pivot from which the Bah' belief of progressive revelation rotates. Because of this, the information I just presented to the reader is most likely not new. While Bah''s are confident that they will be visited by another Manifestation in the distant future, they are also terribly confused as to the events that will herald His coming. There is no room for such confusion, as both Bah'u'llh and 'Abdul-Bah prophesied His appearance and mission many times! The next series of paragraphs will be an attempt to show proofs from Bah' prophecy, combined with the fulfillment of those proofs, that lead to a conclusion.


Bah''s generally believe that a great event will occur, an "unfolding" of The Holy Spirit, after which the "Divine Standard" will be "unfurled." This belief is very similar in its naive nature to the Christian's assertions about a literal return of Christ in," . . . the clouds of heaven." As seekers of the truth, we must constantly look for the inner value of all miracles, either past or promised ones (Some Answered Questions, p 83). The verse I am referring to is as follows:

"...when the appointed hour is come, there shall suddenly appear that which will cause the limbs of mankind to quake. Then and only then will the Divine Standard be unfurled, and the Nightingale of Paradise warble its melody." (Gleanings, p.118)

The above verse from Bah'u'llh's Gleanings alludes to the same event that 'Abdul-Bah speaks about in his book, Some Answered Questions (p.45-61). According to 'Abdul-Bah, when the "Seventh Angel" comes, he will complete the work of God among men. The "appointed hour," that Bah'u'llh writes of, is the same as the "Seventh Trumpet Blast" (Revelation 11: 15) which proceeds the previous six trumpet blasts (Revelation 9:6-20), and the twin Dispensation of the Bb and Bah'u'llh. In regards to Bah'u'llh's words, ". . . there shall suddenly appear that which will cause the limbs of mankind to quake," refers to the earthquake, unleashed by the Seventh Angel in Revelation 11:19, and 16:18. In regards to Bah'u'llh's words, "Then and only then will the Divine Standard be unfurled," refers to the completion of God's work by the Seventh Angel as found in Revelation 16:17. In other words, the Seventh Angel comes shortly after the Dispensation(s) of the Bb and Bah'u'llh (the Fifth trumpet blast) and completes the work of God (the unfurling of the Divine Standard), which is the establishment of the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth. According to many contemporary Bah' scholars, Bah'u'llh is the Seventh Angel as spoken of in The Revelation, but this assumption is incorrect. 'Abdul-Bah explains who the Seventh Angel is in Some Answered Questions:

"The Seventh Angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise with heavenly qualities and character. Voices will be raised, so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and diffused. In the Day of the Manifestation of the Lord of Hosts, and the epoch of the divine cycle of the Omnipotent which is promised and mentioned in the books and writings of the Prophets -- in that Day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established, and the world will be renewed; a new spirit will be breathed into the body of creation, the season of the Divine Spring will come, the clouds of mercy will rain, the sun of reality will shine, the life-giving breeze will blow, the world of humanity will wear a new garment, the surface of the earth will be a sublime paradise; mankind will be educated, wars, disputes, quarrels and malignity will disappear; and truthfulness, righteousness, honesty, and the worship of God will rule forevermore; meaning that the Spiritual and Everlasting Kingdom will be established. Such is the day of God, for all the days that have come and gone were the days of Abraham, Moses and Christ, or of the other Prophets; but this day is the day of God, for the sun of reality will arise in it with the utmost warmth and splendor." (Some Answered Questions, ch. 11)

We can see the parallel which exists between Bah'u'llh's prophecy in Gleanings, 'Abdul-Bah's explanation of the Seventh Angel in Some Answered Question, and the events which surround the Dispensation of the Seventh Angel in The Revelation chapter eleven. In other words, the Plan of God will be finished and, "the Divine Standard will be unfurled."

This is not all that 'Abdul-Bah had to say about the Seventh Angel, 'Abdul-Bah explains what the Seventh Angel will do and also what He will teach. 'Abdul-Bah continues in Some Answered Questions, saying:

"These twenty-four great persons, though they are seated on the thrones of everlasting rule, yet are worshipers of the appearance of the universal Manifestation, and they are humble and submissive, saying, 'We give thanks to Thee, O Lord God Almighty, Which art, and wast, and art to come, because Thou hast taken to Thee Thy great power and hast reigned' - that is to say, Thou wilt issue all Thy teachings, Thou wilt gather all the people of the earth under Thy shadow, and Thou wilt bring all men under the shadow of one tent. Although it is the Eternal Kingdom of God, and He always had, and has, a Kingdom, the Kingdom here means the manifestation of Himself; and He will issue all the laws and teachings which are the spirit of the world of humanity and everlasting life. And that universal Manifestation will subdue the world by spiritual power, not by war and combat; He will do it with peace and tranquility, not by the sword and arms; He will promote these divine teachings by kindness and righteousness, and not by weapons and harshness. He will so educate the nations and people that, notwithstanding their various conditions, their different customs and characters, and their diverse religions and races, they will, as it is said in the Bible, like the wolf and the lamb, the leopard, the kid, the sucking child and the serpent, become comrades, friends and companions. The contentions of races, the differences of religions, and the barriers between nations will be completely removed, and all will attain perfect union and reconciliation under the shadow of the Blessed Tree." (Some Answered Questions, p. 58)

In the above paragraph, we see that often what the Bah' community believes that it can accomplish during its Dispensation (namely establishing the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth), is truly reserved for the Dispensation which will arise. The Dispensation of the Seventh Angel, according to 'Abdul-Bah, will be a Universal Dispensation, that will preserve the truth of God, and will generate world peace. Bah's of the world should be awaiting this Manifestation (the Seventh Angel), though most of them have been taught falsely and believe that God will not send another Manifestation for a thousand years.

Slowly what I am attempting to do in the past pages and the upcoming pages is to un-train what you have wrongly learned, and re-train you with correct and sound spiritual interpretation of Scripture. In doing this, my hope is that you will be able to partake in the blessedness of Maitreya's Dispensation. This re-training is very easy once your eyes begin to open to its reality, and the reason for its ease is because the Prophecies given by the Master are clearly and precisely fulfilled by Maitreya. 'Abdul-Bah has more to say about the Seventh Angel, so let's continue through his prophetic teaching:


According to 'Abdul-Bah, it is through the Dispensation of the Seventh Angel (Maitreya) that, "the diffusion of the divine teachings," will be realized, and "the doors of success and prosperity will be opened in all directions, and the signs of goodness and heavenly benedictions will be made plain." 'Abdul-Bah also stated that the Seventh Angel will confirm the covenant made by Bah'u'llh:

"'And there was seen in His temple the ark of His Testament' - that is to say, the Book of His Testament will appear in His Jerusalem, the Epistle of the Covenant will be established, and the meaning of the Testament and of the Covenant will become evident. The renown of God will overspread the East and West, and the proclamation of the Cause of God will fill the world. The violators of the Covenant will be degraded and dispersed, and the faithful cherished and glorified, for they cling to the Book of the Testament and are firm and steadfast in the Covenant." (Some Answered Questions, p. 60).

'Abdul-Bah clearly worried about the impact that the covenant-breakers were having on the fledgling Bah' community, and described that the Seventh Angel will establish the "Epistle of the Covenant." The Epistle of the Covenant was Bah'u'llh's transmission of the Faith to His eldest son, Abbas Effendi ('Abdul-Bah), without this document the authority of 'Abdul-Bah is shattered and the Bah' community would not know where to turn for leadership after the passing of Bah'u'llh and the surge of Bah' splinter groups. We can conclude that 'Abdul-Bah expected the Seventh Angel to come soon after the passing of his Father, because on many occasions 'Abdul-Bah wrote about the spiritual weaknesses of the covenant-breakers and his confidence in their quick demise.

Maitreya, in one of His discourses on the Bah' Faith, confirms the Epistle of the Covenant and fulfills one of 'Abdul-Bah's prophecies regarding His Dispensation. Here briefly are Maitreya's statements about the Covenant:


"The Baha'i Faith is also part of the Mission, part of our teachings. They have beautiful teachings and they cover a lot of beautiful, wonderful things. They are the people who have been prophesied in the Bible, in The Revelation, that many of them will be killed and they will be given the white robes when they come to heaven. And that is exactly what happened to the followers of the Bb. Many of them were killed and destroyed, and they were strong followers, very faithful and very strong.

"So the Baha'i Faith also is a part of the Eternal Divine Path. Without universalism, without the feeling of the expansion of the mind, and covering all the religions of the world and everything in the universe, we are going to create separation and narrowness of the mind. And separation and narrowness of the mind is the essence of suffering. That is why we suffer, because we separate ourselves. And whenever it is 'they and us,' there is prejudice, there is narrowness of the mind, there is misunderstanding, and there is suffering. No doubt about it." (Maitreya's Discourses on the Fifth and Sixth Seals of The Greatest Sign)


"Troubles in the Baha'i Faith, regarding successors . . . When Bah'u'llh died, his son Abdul-Bah took over. A great struggle started between him and his brother over who is the successor for Bah'u'llh. When Abdul-Bah died, again there was a rumor that his successor, Shoghi Effendi, had changed the will, etc. When Shoghi Effendi died, he did not appoint any successor. Again there was a great upheaval in the Baha'i movement. Eventually some of the people took over and discontinued the idea of the Guardian. . . . Covenant Breakers: In each of these incidents [was], anyone who opposed the leaders [i.e. Abdul-Baha and Shoghi Effendi] . . ." (Lecture by Maitreya 10/5/93 At The Feast Of Tabernacles, Universalism, The Fifth Seal).


'Abdul-Bah continued his explanation of the Seventh Angel, by next prophesying that the Seventh Angel will reveal the Holy of Holies. 'Abdul-Bah narrated, saying:

"And the temple of God was opened in heaven' means that the divine Jerusalem is found, and the Holy of Holies has become visible. The Holy of Holies, according to the terminology of the people of wisdom, is the essence of the Divine Law, and the heavenly and true teachings of the Lord, which have not been changed in the cycle of any Prophet, as it was before explained. The sanctuary of Jerusalem is likened to the reality of the Law of God, which is the Holy of Holies; and all the laws, conventions, rites and material regulations are the city of Jerusalem -- this is why it is called the heavenly Jerusalem. Briefly, as in this cycle the Sun of Reality will make the light of God shine with the utmost splendor, therefore, the essence of the teachings of God will be realized in the world of existence, and the darkness of ignorance and want of knowledge will be dispelled. The world will become a new world, and enlightenment will prevail. So the Holy of Holies will appear."

"'And the temple of God was opened in heaven' means also that by the diffusion of the divine teachings, the appearance of these heavenly mysteries, and the rising of the Sun of Reality, the doors of success and prosperity will be opened in all directions, and the signs of goodness and heavenly benedictions will be made plain." (Some Answered Questions, 59-60).

The Holy of Holies was in the center of the Jewish Temple, where the Ark of the Covenant laid (the ark was a ceremonial box that held the Ten Commandments), and was considered the Holiest place in the entire world. No one could enter the Holy of the Holies according to Mosaic Law except the High Priest of Israel, who had to have been born a Levite (a Levite is a member of the Levi tribe, one of the twelve tribes of Israel). The High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies only once a year and make a Levitical sacrifice of bull's blood for the forgiveness of sins.

'Abdul-Bah conforms this explanation, and not only confirmed that the Holy of Holies may be 'entered into' by men through the sacrifices of the Manifestations, but also explained that in the time of the Seventh Angel, the entire Law of God (the Holiest of Holies) will be unveiled to all men without reservation.


Like Bah'u'llh's central book the Kitab-i-Aqdas (The Most Holy Book), Maitreya has revealed a divine and dynamic book entitled, The Holiest Of The Holies (THOTH), The Last Testament. In THOTH (The Holiest Of The Holies), Maitreya reveals the entire Law of God, and gives mankind the divine Jerusalem it has been waiting for. THOTH is the weightiest of all of Maitreya's Revelation, consisting of nineteen books and well over 300 tablets. Maitreya fulfills the prophecy given by 'Abdul-Bah that the Seventh Angel will reveal the Holy of Holies (in Greek the Holiest of the Holies). Moreover, the Mission of Maitreya welcomes anyone who wishes to read THOTH to please do so. We received this revelation free from charge, and likewise we freely supply it online at the Mission of Maitreya's web-site:


"O Son of Justice! In the night-season the beauty of the immortal Being hath repaired from the emerald height of fidelity unto the Sadratul-Muntaha, and wept with such a sweeping that the concourse on high and the dwellers of the realms above wailed at His lamenting. Whereupon there was asked, Why the wailing and weeping? He made reply: As bidden I waited expectant upon the hill of faithfulness, yet inhaled not from them that dwell on earth the fragrance of fidelity. Then summoned to return I beheld, and lo! Certain doves of holiness were sore tired within the claws of the dogs of earth. Thereupon the Maid of heaven hastened forth unveiled and resplendent from Her mystic mansion, and asked of their names, and all were told but one. And when urged, the first letter thereof was uttered, whereupon the dwellers of the celestial chambers rushed forth out of their habitation of glory. And whilst the second letter was pronounced they fell down, one and all, upon the dust. At that moment a voice was heard from the inmost shrine: 'Thus far and no farther.' Verily We bear witness to that which they have done and now are doing" (Persian Hidden Words, # 77).

The Bah' Faith and the revelation of Bah'u'llh are a part of a greater Faith and revelation, the revelation and faith of the "Greatest Name." In the above paragraph, Bah'u'llh in veiled language explained that when His Dispensation began (May 3, 1863), mankind was not prepared for the entire and complete revelation of God (symbolized by the three letters of the Greatest Name). The "Hand-Maiden of God," commanded that the first part of the revelation be revealed to Mankind. This is symbolized by the revealing of the first letter of the Greatest Name, the letter B, which was revealed by the Bb. The Hand-Maiden also permitted that the second part of the revelation could be revealed to mankind, this is symbolized by the revealing of the second letter of the Greatest Name, the letter H, which was revealed by Bah'u'llh. After these first two letters, the revelation was ordered to be stopped, "Thus far and no farther." These two revealed letters, B and H were not the complete Name, they were only a part of the name, and the last letter of the Greatest Name (the last revealed truth) A would come by another Prophet. Also, in Bah' Prayers the letters of the Greatest Name are symbolized as three mighty attributes of God, the "Most-Exalted," the "All-Glorious," and the "All-Highest."

According to traditional Muslim hadiths, the third letter or revealed truth would be revealed by Muhammad, and like the other two Manifestations of the Greatest Name, He was to be born in Persia. Maitreya, whose birth name was Muhammad and birth place Persia, revealed the third part of the Greatest Name, the A or Alif, to complete the Revelation of God and the Greatest Name -- BHA (Glory).

Maitreya, in response to a letter I sent Him, explains His part of the Greatest Name, writing:

"These Words and the Words in the "Greatest Name" are a part of the Holy Name (The Word) that is Revealed to the Elects in four Initiations in the Mission. You can read about The Word (Holy Word, Holy Name) all through our Teachings . . . As the Seventh Angel and/or the opener of the book Sealed with Seven Seals, Reveals the Whole Mystery Of God (holds nothing back), The Word also is Revealed to the Elect in its Fullness at this time. No one had the whole Name, as no one had the whole Eternal Divine Path, until now." (Maitreya)

"These Words" that Maitreya refers to is the mystical alphabet revealed by Muhammad in the Qur'an, which open all the Surahs. Summarizing Maitreya's statement above, the Seventh Angel has combined all the sacred letters of past religions, completed their alphabets with His revelation, putting both the old and the new together to construct "THE WORD." What follows below is the exact wording used on our web-site to explain the Divine Name and THE WORD:


Maitreya also reveals the true pronunciation of the sacred name of the Lord. Maitreya has revealed the true way to pronounce the name of the Lord (Father) and His Son in four initiations. These names can neither be pronounced nor written in the material world. When they merge INTO ONE (the Son and the Father become One), it is called THE WORD, " . . . but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed." (Matthew 8:8)

The Name of the Father:

The Name of the Son:

The Divine Name:

The Universal Mantra:

Haree Om Shrii Hung
(The Goal Of The Life Is To Be(come) Divine)
Om Nam Kevalam

(That Divinity (God) is Everything or Everything is God)


Even with all the previous proofs that Maitreya is the promised Manifestation, I still have to deal with the verse in Gleanings that heralded the opening of this essay. I have four major points that I think will help break down the thousand-year misunderstanding, and help to solidify my case that Maitreya is the Promised One.

1. God is the only one familiar with the time and the hour at which a Manifestation of His Presence will appear (Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 157). Therefore, we should never be satisfied to simply stop our search for the new Manifestations on the basis of any single verse. When religions as a whole stop seeking the truth, that is when they begin to become complacent and spiritually dead, and the individual is no different. We must always seek the truth, until, ". . . every man may testify, in himself, by himself, in the station of the Manifestation of his Lord, that verily there is no God save Him, and that every man may thereby win his way to the summit of realities, until none shall contemplate anything whatsoever but that he shall see God therein" (The Seven Valleys, p. 1).

2. Bah' leadership teaches that the thousand-year clause found in Gleanings and the Kitab-i-Aqdas, refers to the Dispensation of Bah'u'llh. This is a man-made assumption, and Bah'u'llh NEVER said this! Bah'u'llh never revealed when the thousand year period begins, NEVER. That is why today many Bah' scholars have many different views on when it begins, some say 1852 others 1892, THESE ARE ONLY GUESSES AT BEST!

3. The Bible tells us that the work of God is only complete after the advent (trumpet blasting and scroll opening) of the Seventh Angel (Revelation 16:17), and 'Abdul-Bah confirmed this in his book, Some Answered Questions. So we are left with only one possible option for explaining the thousand years, which is, that the thousand years spoken of by Bah'u'llh is parallel to the thousand years found in the 20th chapter of St. John's Revelation. If this is true, then the Bible tells us exactly when the thousand years begins, it begins sometime after the Seventh Angel blows His trumpet (Revelation 16) setting the rest of the prophetic events into a chronological motion. In other words, the thousand years cannot occur before the Seventh Angel, who was NOT a part of the Bb /Bah' Dispensations.

4. Maitreya is the Seventh Angel, and it is His Dispensation that Bah'u'llh is referring to, which began in 1982. Here are Maitreya's own words in a response to a letter I sent Him, confirming the above explanation of the thousand years:

". . . What Bah'u'llh says about the next thousand years is also true. There will be no great Manifestation after me, for a thousand years. He (Bah'u'llh) indeed was inspired to Reveal this Truth to humanity. It, however, was not for Him but I." (Maitreya)


Maitreya once wrote: ". . . Eventually some of those people took over and discontinued the idea of the Guardian. They formed the House of Justice and decided they no longer needed a guardian. That, of course, is not the way Bah'u'llh envisioned the Bah' Faith to run . . ." (Lecture by Maitreya 10/5/93, At The Feast Of Tabernacles, Universalism, The Fifth Seal). This statement may seem at first glance off base to the Bah' reader, but under closer examination, we will find that 'Abdul-Bah related the same thing, and that Shoghi Effendi confirmed it.

Shoghi Effendi passed away at a young age and left the Bah' community without a future Guardian and also without the hope of completing, "The Mighty Plan of God." In one of the writings of the Guardian, he himself expressed the impossibility of the Bah' Faith to function as Bah'u'llh had intended, without the leadership of the Guardian. The Guardian once wrote:

"Divorced from the institution of the Guardianship the World Order of Bah'u'llh would be mutilated and permanently deprived of that hereditary principle which, as 'Abdul-Bah has written, has been invariably upheld by the Law of God . . . Without such an institution the integrity of the Faith would be imperiled, and the stability of the entire fabric would be gravely endangered. Its prestige would suffer, the means required to enable it to take a long, and uninterrupted view over a series of generations, would be completely lacking, and necessary guidance to define the sphere of legislative action of its representatives would be totally withdrawn." (The World Order of Bah'u'llh, 148).


The Bah' Faith, struck in peril under the crushing weight of a Guardian-less community, was also limited in its spiritual understanding. Bah'u'llh, as it was recorded in the writings of Nabil, Taherzadeh, and Shoghi Effendi, was constantly receiving revelation from God in which He had to destroy . . . the Plan of God, was not yet finished. In the writings of Shoghi Effendi we find confirmation of this:

"As to those verses which He either dictated or wrote Himself, their number was no less remarkable than either the wealth of material they contained, or the diversity of subjects to which they referred. A vast, and indeed the greater proportion of these Writings were, alas, lost irretrievably to posterity. No less an authority than Mirza Aqa Jan, Bah'u'llh's amanuensis, affirms, as reported by Nabil, that by the express order of Bah'u'llh, hundreds of thousands of verses, mostly written by His own hand, were obliterated and cast into the river. 'Finding me reluctant to execute His orders,' Mirza Aqa Jan has related to Nabil, 'Bah'u'llh would reassure me saying: 'None is to be found at this time worthy to hear these melodies.' Not once, or twice, but innumerable times, was I commanded to repeat this act.'" (God Passes By, 138)


Shoghi Effendi, though not granted the station of Abbas Effendi, had a keen and invaluable spiritual insight, combined with a great and fervent love for God. He often spoke of events of great spiritual significance that others could not understand.

The Guardian said to some of the pilgrims, during the last year and a half or two years, something very strange. He said that there are two Plans. The long term Plan of Almighty God for mankind on this planet; that is the Plan that has the Prophets of God, the Adamic Cycle and all of the Great Manifestations of God, like Christ and Muhammad, Buddha, Zoroaster, and Moses and so on, bringing us to this day with the Bb and Bah'u'llh. This is the Mighty Plan of God, educating humanity and bringing the Kingdom of Heaven on earth on this planet. He said, 'This Plan of God, it goes forward in mysterious ways, we do not always understand its workings.' Then, he said, 'We have the Divine Plan, which is being carried forward by the Bah''s in the form as we know it, first the Seven Year Plan, and then this Ten Year Plan -- the World Crusade which we are now engaged upon and part of which has passed.' The Guardian said, 'Who knows, maybe this great Plan of God will interfere in the other Plan' (Bah' News, May 1958, No.327).

Shoghi Effendi could "feel" the spiritual influences of God's movement on earth and knew instinctively that the Mighty Plan of God was about to continue. In other words, Shoghi Effendi could not explain why, though he knew, that another Prophet of God was about to emerge to help bring the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth. In cryptic language Shoghi Effendi revealed this fact to the entire Bah' community.

In 1982, the Guardian's puzzling foreshadowing become a concrete reality, as Maitreya began to proclaim His Mission to the world. Maitreya has ushered in the New Order of The Ages, and is the completer of God's revelation among mankind. The final trumpet blast has sounded, and the "Mighty Plan of God" is complete! The Mighty Plan of God is today marching forward, and all are invited to receive its blessings! The Cycle of Prophets continues, and I ask that you please investigate Maitreya so that you may decide rather He is a fake or rather He is a Manifestation. The last part of this essay will be excerpts from Maitreya's teachings which will help to solidify His Message and show you how, through Him , ". . . It is done!" (Revelation 16:17)


1. The Bah' Faith is expecting a Prophet to come from the West. Maitreya's Dispensation began in the United States.

2. Bah'u'llh foretold of a calamity similar in its nature to the "Day of Resurrection" that other religions are expecting. Maitreya is the great unfurling of The Holy Spirit that Bah'u'llh promised.

3. 'Abdul-Bah explained in Some Answered Questions, that the Seventh Angel will come in the future, will explain the covenant, will ensure world peace, and will reveal the Holiest of the Holies. Maitreya is the Seventh Angel, who has explained the covenant of the Bah' Faith, is ensuring world peace through His writings and works, and has revealed The Holiest Of The Holies.

4. The Bah' Faith awaits the third revealer of the Greatest Name, who will complete the Name BHA. Maitreya not only reveals the third letter of the Greatest Name A, He also reveals The WORD, the Holy Name of the Father, the Holy Name of the Son, and the New Universal Mantra.

5. The thousand years prophesied by Bah'u'llh in Gleanings are not for His Dispensation but for the Dispensation of the Seventh Angel. Maitreya's (the Seventh Angel) Dispensation.

6. Bah'u'llh envisioned a Guardian-based society, without which the Bah' Faith would be rendered moot. The Guardianship was ended by the Bah' Universal House of Justice ending effectiveness of the Bah' Faith to achieve the goals of its founder.

7. Bah'u'llh was not the Seventh Angel as many contemporary Bah' scholars believe, because Bah'u'llh could not give to humanity the complete revelation of God (this is not because of Bah'u'llh's impotency, it is instead because of humanity's inability). Maitreya is the Seventh Angel and has completed the revelation of God.

8. The Guardian of the Bah' Faith believed that very soon a new Manifestation would come that would disrupt the Bah' Plans, but would glorify God's. The Guardian was correct in his beliefs, Maitreya was born in 1944, a little over 100 years after the beginning of the Dispensation of the Bb.


Furthermore, in the hadiths from Muhammad and Ali, the three Manifestations of the Greatest Name are given three titles and events that will herald their arrivals. The first to appear is named the Mahdi. Historically Mahdi is the Bb (Gate) who toward the end of His Revelation, declared that He was the Qa'im and the Promised One of all religions. The Bb made clear that He was the B, or the first Letter of the Greatest Name.

The next title given to the second revealer of the Greatest Name, is Esa (Jesus, His Name never was Jesus). Esa was to immediately follow the appearance of Mahdi. The advent of Esa after that of Mahdi can be likened to in Christian tradition of the appearance of Elijah. Esa is believed by Bah's to be Bahullh. Bahullhs mission was to extend the Babi/Bahai sphere of influence from the East to the West. Bahullh also laid the essential foundations of the future world government, and institutions intended to help establish Divine Justice on earth. Bahullh was a part of the Revelation of the Greatest Name, revealing the second letter of the Greatest Name the H. The Quran and Bible alike explain that the coming of Esa/Elijah (or historically Bahullh) as a sign for the coming of the Day of Judgment and the appearance of the Third Manifestation of the Greatest Name:

"And Esa (i.e. Jesus) will be a Sign for the coming of the Hour of Judgment; therefore have no doubt about the Hour but follow ye Me; this is a Straight Way." (Surah of Ornaments of Gold 43:6l)

"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." (Malachi 4:5)

After the appearance of both Bab and Bahullh (Esa, Elijah), the Day of Judgment (or the great and dreadful day of the Lord), the third Letter of the Greatest Name is to appear, and His name in the hadiths is Muhammad. Historically this third Revelator of the Greatest Name is Maitreya. Maitreyas birth name was Muhammad, and He is the completer of Gods Revelation. Not only has Maitreya given the third letter of the Greatest Name to humanity, the A or Alif, but also those teachings which Bahullh destroyed because mankind was not yet ready to receive them. Maitreya has given us The Greatest Sign, the Eternal Divine Path, THOTH, and THE WORD. The Mystery of God is finished in Maitreyas Dispensation just as God has promised: "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel . . . the mystery of God should be finished . . . ." (Rev. 10:7)


I thought it might be important to leave the reader with a chronological time line of the Dispensation of the Greatest Name, and a basic outline for its historical fulfillment.

1. The appearance of Anti-Christ. This is the "spirit" of the Anti-Christ (the attraction of the external world).

2. The descent of Mahdi (the twelfth Imam of Islam), the Bb. The Bbs Dispensation began in 1844.

3. The descent of Esa (Jesus), Bahullh. Bahullhs Dispensation began in 1863.

4. The fifth blast of the trumpet (the Revelation of the Bb, the B of the Greatest Name.

5. The continuation blast of the fifth trumpet (the Revelation of Bahullh, the H of the Greatest Name).

6. The sixth Blast or the Sixth Seal (brought by Baba as forerunner for Maitreya).

7. The Judgment Day. Figuratively depicted as the coming of the Manifestation of the third Letter A of the Greatest Name, also the third woe. It is during this time that the Seventh Trumpet blast is sounded, which is the trumpet of Maitreya. Maitreyas Dispensation began in 1982 and will be solidified in 2017!
