If ye stay not the hand of the oppressor, 
if ye fail to safeguard the rights of the down-trodden, 
what right have ye then to vaunt yourselves among men?

Dear friends,

Consider these words of Baha'u'llah as you reflect upon your very own selves as the living Bearers of this message of the Kingdom you embody in the world today:

"There is no distinction whatsoever among the Bearers of My Message." (GL, p. 78)

May God assist us all in carrying out His Will, and the will of none other but Him, as we understand it!

While it remains for each and everyone one of us to translate the expression of that Will happily according to our own individual understanding into our own immediate lives and in relation collectively to the common weal--consider for a moment the REAL DIFFERENCE the exists between the DIFFERENT types of ACTS WE COMMIT in the Estimation of Almighty God:

"The virtues and attributes pertaining unto God are all evident and manifest, and have been mentioned and described in all the heavenly Books. Among them are trustworthiness, truthfulness, purity of heart WHILE communing with God, forbearance, resignation to whatever the Almighty hath decreed, contentment with the things His Will hath provided, patience, nay thankfulness in the midst of tribulation, and complete reliance, in all circumstances, upon Him. These rank, according to the ESTIMATE OF GOD, among the highest and most laudable of all acts. ALL OTHER ACTS [WE COMMIT] are, and will ever remain, secondary and subordinate unto them...." (GL, p. 290)

Letting the SECONDARY and SUBORDINATE go out from your sight, and turning your back upon them, consider yourselves in the light of only those that are among the HIGHEST and MOST LAUDABLE of acts as stated by Baha'u'llah in the Estimate of God as it is written the people will all be "judged" by what they "have done" (Rev. 20:12; 22:12 RSV). Then turn and rejoice that you have heard this NAME, and EMBODY this Spirit, and BEAR this Message as part and parcel of this HOUSE OF GOD--"living stones" (1 Pet. 2:5 RSV) within His Temple--"flesh and bone" of His Body--"For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones." (Eph. 5:30 KJV)--not as the failed leadership who should protect us from wrongs: like poison gas in Syria upon innocents; or closes the government against helping the sick, infirm, and ailing--yet still "vaunts" themselves "among men"--but in the rejoicing purity of humble satisfaction of being present with God in all circumstances and under all conditions in this revelation of the inner light of ABHA that shines within the hearts, minds, and souls of the innumerable myriads and myriads that love Him.

"Happy are those that inhale from thee ("O Most great House of God') the sweet savors of the Merciful, that acknowledge thine exaltation, that safeguard thy sanctity, that reverence, at all time thy station. We implore the Almighty to grant that the eyes of those who have turned away from thee, and failed to appreciate thy worth, may be opened, that they may truly recognize thee, and Him Who, through the power of truth, hath raised thee up on high. Blind, indeed, are they about thee, and utterly unaware of thee in this day. Thy Lord is verily, the Gracious, the Forgiving." (GL, p. 113).

Gird Up the Loins of Your Endeavor!”—Baha’u’llah.

Dear friends,

The Great Announcement: The Crimson Book is now available!

The Sacred Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha: The Book of the Everlasting Covenant of God

This is the definitive and unique edition in print for a limited time containing the Kitab--i-Ahd the Book of the Covenant of Baha’u’llah within. The description is as follows:

“The Book of the Everlasting Covenant of God. The Twin Central and sacred Holy Books of the Baha'i Faith form One single "scroll written within" (Kitab-i-'Ahd) and "on the back (the sacred Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha) sealed with seven seals" (Revelation 5:1 RSV). Here Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha continue God's Covenant of the throne-line of King David (Psalm 89; Genesis 49:10) as the presidents, executive branch, and "irremovable member for life" of the genuine Universal House of Justice ( of Baha'u'llah that is to last for ever.

“It includes the most current authoritative translations of the original texts; important footnotes for teaching; the retention of key Persian and Arabic terms; the legal Addendum concerning the inheritance of 'Abdu'l-Baha's son; authoritative comments of Shoghi Effendi; adornment with excepts of relevant Original texts in fine Persian calligraphy; Baha'u'llah's instructions to the faithful for the fulfillment of the Promise of Jesus for the removal of sins; an important statement from the Supreme Pen on the hidden potentialities of "the Crimson Book;" and the original "Prayer of the Covenant" disseminated during the ministry of 'Abdu'l-Baha.”

The publication marks the twelfth year commemoration of the 9-11 which is the start of the ten day days interim period (Sept. 11 to Sept. 21, 2001) in which the explicit prophecy of Zechariah Chapter 3 verse 8—that God would bring forth his servant the BRANCH was fulfilled.

These 12 years are summed up on the word “Ab” which means Father: where in the position of tens a= 1 and of unites b=2: 12.

In the Baha’i calendar the Bab inaugurates a system of counting by 19 bundles of 19 years periods entitled “vahids” meaning unity.  The total of 361 years or 129 of these vahids is called a Kulla-Shay, meaning All-Things. A full description and meaning of this holy and sacred prophetical calendric system is given elsewhere.

Concerning succession: The first 19 years period designated by the letter “A” corresponds to the first period of the active guardianship of Mason Remey from the passing of Shoghi Effendi until his own passing in 1974. The second 19 years period designated as the letter “B “corresponds to the years 1975 until 1994 and represents the duration of the public knowledge of the identity of Pepe as the successor to his father Mason. 1994 until 2013 represents the completion of the first vahid of the public administration of the current guardian and consequently corresponds also to the third nineteen years period in succession after Mason and Pepe. This third period now coming to its completion is designated by the Bab as the vahid A and B combined as “Ab” meaning Father. “Ab” here represents the 12 years from 2001 until 2013 and is associated with the new and important work commencing on the Front Range in the current teaching effort of the Baha’i Faith as given in the Tablet’s of the Divine Plan by ‘Abdu’l-Baha..

At this time—great work is being accomplished—and great foundation stones are being put into place! Now that the parvat has been revealed and explained
 (see Shambhala: the four great sockets—plus a fifth--have been platted, begun to be dug, and thoroughly excavated.

The overall surveying of the plateau, the great Platform, the Pavement (John 19:13), the foundation from which both Christ Jesus, Paul and the various other of the prophets and disciples spoke, is coming to its completion. The celestial, terrestrial, and telestial coordinates—as confirmed by ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s Tablets of the Divine Plan and the explicit prophecies preserved in the four great repositories of world knowledge and lore--have been have been authenticated, ascertained to the minutest degree, and now, at the appointed hour, activated.

The workers who have remained throughout the long duration of the various phases of this divine schedule bill—as well as those sub-contracted to fill in especial work at sundry and different times--such as Hiram-Abi mentioned in the Holy Scriptures (2 Chronicles 2:13-14 RSV); and the builders of the adytum, one and all servants of the Light, have now reached the consummation and pinnacle of their achievements. Now that this phase is fast coming rapidly to its foreordained conclusion—the time has come for us all to, in the words of Baha’u’llah, “gird up the loins of our endeavor” and shift gears in order to survive the tremendous forces that are about to be unleashed do to the turning of this ark in a New Direction and a New Outlook toward the Most High Horizon.

“Gird up the loins of your endeavor, O people of Bahá, that haply the tumult of religious dissension and strife that agitateth the peoples of the earth may be stilled, that every trace of it may be completely obliterated. For the love of God, and them that serve Him, arise to aid this most sublime and momentous Revelation. Religious fanaticism and hatred are a world-devouring fire, whose violence none can quench. The Hand of Divine power can, alone, deliver mankind from this desolating affliction.” (GL, XXXII)

No one and nothing can thwart the onward moment of this Cause—a Cause so great that it has enveloped the personal, private, and public destines of all mankind. Few have been those who have retained the maturity and sagacity to remain firm in the Covenant during these times of great acceleration and powerful moment of forward projection! For example consider the great-strain and powerful exertion of so-called ‘g-forces’ upon  both cosmonaut and astronaut alike as the diamond vehicle reaches the apex of escape velocity only to be immediately caught again within the powerful grips of the event horizon. Thus are these things prophesied in an abstruse, difficult craggy language aforetime in the Holy scriptures and sacred books of old—those things that the Ancestors knew and that “modern man”--yet while living in their manifest fulfillment--has only a dim view and mere inkling at the present time.

From the Holy Qur’an, Judeo-Christian Bible, and legends, prophecies, and lore of the Kalavala, Eddas and Sagas of the Ancient European peoples; to the Native American Prophecies preserved in the Mayan, Aztec, Peruvian, Hopi, Navaho, Ute, Zia, Anastasi, and Inter-tribal traditions and beliefs; complimented by the Buddhist, Hindu, Tibetan, Tantric, etc., prophecies of the Kalacharkra and Kali Yug of Asia and the Far East; as well as the Ancient Egyptian, Babylonian, Greek, Etruscan,  Harrapan, Sumerian, centered upon the Cosmic civilization of the Great Pyramid of Giza located upon the continent of Africa—all peoples, all world-traditions, all beliefs, all the variegated body of world–prophecy and sacred world-literature has led up to today to be fulfilled NOW: in the present immediate moment of the Presence of God, for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.

These are the general beliefs and traditions and bodies of literature, and repositories of prophecy and divine guidance as they have come down to us from ages gone by throughout recorded history until now at the present time. They form a living body of Ancestral Wisdom, that spans back beyond the current understanding of religious, spiritual, and historical thought back through the four previous Cycles of myth and legend of Atlantis, Lemuria, Mu, and Titan beyond through to the primordial depths and mysts of time. These flow down into the root of our very own being itself, the ancient soul of humanity before individuals were formed and became sentient to know their own true selves and thereby to their own Lord. “In the ancient eternity of My essence, I knew My love for thee: therefore I created thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee My beauty.”—The Golden Book of Baha’u’llah.

Far from being a hodge-podge of eastern mysticism, or an eclectic mismatched false amalgamation of arbitrary belief—these four foundations represent the real tangible, and scientific empirical datum that form the substrate of all current world systems and outlook.  As to the unity in this diversity and difference Baha’u’llah has stated:

“A mighty power and supreme potency is hidden and concealed in the world of being. Focus your gaze upon it and the direction of its unity, not upon the differences which are apparent therein.”

The scientific progress in merely the last one hundred years coupled with the precise work of Dr. Leland Jensen and the Baha’is Under the Provisions of the Covenant, centered in the Rocky Mountains of the United States, has been able to successfully complete this thorough and exhaustive excavation of the spiritual and ancestral roots of all humanity. While we may hold to the ones of humanity as a bleif and gut feeling it another thing to work through the intricate details of the reconciliation of that Divine and Unassailable Reality in the context of the current problems of the present day.

These excavations, and prophetical explorations, form a parallel sequence as to the four sockets carved into the Giza Plateau in Ancient of Days--and a fifth—and can be said to represent the CAPACITY to receive the knowledge and wisdom of the Four Supports, that are symbolized as Four Foundation stones.

However, like all the traditions and beliefs of the past, these four sockets are not the Four Supports, nor are they the Four Foundations themselves. No! They represent the Capacity to receive these four bases even as the biological foundations of all life on this planet is able to receive and maintain its capacity of the four bases of DNA that contains the knowledge for the Life-Design on this terrestrial sphere. From these four bases arises “infinite diversity within infinite combinations” as stated by Rambam (Rabbi Moses ben Maimonides) in his Kabbalahistic view. These four are composed of the four elements of the ancients (that correspond to the four phases of matter) in the form of the four ‘gens’ on the Periodic Table as the basis of all Carbon-Life forms. As the sophistication and diverse complexity of life arises these foundations are paralleled on different levels as the four basic ways of acquiring knowledge, the four basic expressive modalities of the science of the love of God, the four traditional worlds of esoteric western imagination, all symbolized as an outpouring of spiritual sublimity from the appearance of the four letters of the Ineffable Name. In reality though, there is no end nor limit to the worlds of God:

This physical universe is infinite, and if material existence is endless, how much more so are the worlds of God! When we think of the visible worlds as infinite, how can we think that the worlds of God are limited? There is no beginning and no end to the material or spiritual worlds. Man passes through different phases and when in a lower consciousness he cannot comprehend the consciousness above. When we were in the state of the unborn child we had no knowledge of the world of man. If the vegetable kingdom could speak it would cry out, "Where is the world of man?" We cry out, "Where is the kingdom of the spirit?"

“My hope for you is that as you travel through the universe of existence you will ever become acquainted with new and wonderful significances; that your knowledge will ever be increased — knowledge without limitation; then you will understand the realities existing in all kingdoms. Capacity is in accordance with striving and sincerity.

“I pray that your inner sight may become clear, that you may be able to perceive things the heedless do not see, that you may understand the infinite worlds of God. A man who has no knowledge of the heavenly universe has missed a portion of his heritage and is like unto a stone which knows nothing of humanity. May God open your inner sight, so that you may know his secrets, attain to the highest degree of existence, become manifestors of a spiritual humanity and have your share of the heavenly wisdom that BAHA’U’LLAH bestows. These divine effulgences have enveloped the Orient and Occident, but the eyes know not how to perceive, the intelligences are weak and so men are deprived and are in manifest loss. I commend you to turn towards the kingdom of El-Abha, so that the divine mysteries may be revealed.” (“Abdu’l-Baha on Divine Philosophy)

“Wert thou to ponder in thine heart the behavior of the Prophets of God thou wouldst assuredly and readily testify that there must needs be other worlds besides this world… As to thy question concerning the worlds of God. Know thou of a truth that the worlds of God are countless in their number, and infinite in their range. None can reckon or comprehend them except God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.” (Baha’u’llah, GL, LXXXI & LXXIX)

Each of the Manifestations of God has revealed an entirely different and unique distinct world in which God Himself is able to manifest to the true soul and open mind of the pure hearted seeker. Within these worlds are myriad of myriad other worlds forming what the scientists of the day refer to as a multiverse. This is not only a multiverse of possibility but is a mutliverse of actuality.  This plane of meeting represents one among many planes of meeting and discovery in which the people who are alive in spirit are able to both congregate and commune.

The four foundations represent a way in which individuals may conceptualize an understanding of themselves in identity in relation to their origins and roots. Each individual has two parents that had two parents. These are the four bases combined as two base pairs of everyone’s genetic heritage and basic biological family of origin. While we arise from these conditions we are not defined perpetually by them. Because of our innate spiritual sensibility we are able to evolve our spiritual personality and develop our divine nature and character by getting in touch with our spiritual roots.

On world scale these spiritual roots can be viewed in four major groups. At the begging of this cycle, that the Mayans and Aztecs call the 5th World, the previous four worlds represented the four roots of the fifth. In the fifth cycle at the beginning the founders of this age deliberately began a process of spiritually de-segregating the population of four main areas on the four major continents of the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Europe. This desegregation came in the form of both an integration and an isolation. The general world-view, outlook and way of acquiring spiritual knowledge and relation with the universe and the divine was a type of diverse mysticism unique to each general region. These were separated from the approaches of the other religions in order to deepen those populations into a personal relationship with the Divine Reality in a manner and style different from the other groups. Within each grouping further diversification of the divine knowledge also accrued through individuation of the personality types and views of families. Naturally this would cause those who would not fit in to arise out of each system. These that arose out of each of the four main groupings formed a type of fifth, or ouytcast, that was a type germ of the new cycle. These then were able to recognize the lead founders of the fifth cycle and establish the known world and civilization as we know it today. In this history of the fifth world Nine great Revelators were sent. These recompounded the four different outlooks and gave contrary specific systems to the different peoples in which they appeared. This was to cause a crystallization of specific different systems totally uncommon with one another in order to provide differentiation and different spiritual and religious material functions. These is similar to what has occurred in the physical body, the human temple, where the bones have very little in common with the lungs for example--each however forming an important and interdependent system of function in the living being.

The fifth aspect still permeates these nine systems and four basic appraoches of knowing and loving the divine. This fifth aspect is more like the actual identity and personality of the person in relation to the nine systems of the biological form. If you were to dissect the corpse of a person you would not find this aspect for it is spiritual and not a material reality.

The sixth aspect is the appearance of the divine bounty in relationship to the awakened self. Thus we have exited into the sixth cycle as of 2012 and 2001 according to the Aztec and Palenque reckonings. The Hopi, for example, by the instruction of the covenant given to them, never participated in the filth cycle at all. Therefore they have preserved the pure teaching of the previous four cycles at the four corners. Today they are able to immediately enter the sixth cycle by passing through the 7 levels of the 5th cycle in 12 nights--if they wish. They are then free to return to their world and continue to benefit the peoples. Many souls have entered into the sixth cycle--attained to the apex of understanding--and yet have chosen to return into the Nineworlds of the 5th cycle (or the spaces in-between) to help various peoples as well. These are multiple worlds within worlds (as well as the connections and disconnections, the continuum and the discrete) between) that forms the totality of what ‘Abdu’l-Baha has written is THE MATRIX.

Now we use these four to represent lomasqatsi that is balance at the roots. This is the ancient teaching of life in balance. The pyramid represents balance at the four bases of the four corners that supports the fifth that is the apex where the capstone platform is located representing the third-eye and is thus is supported and manifest. The all-seeing eye is the intellect that is able to receive and interact knowledge of the divine via four basic approaches and via the power of experiencing the affects of four forms of the science of the love of God. When the individual generally comes into the balance of this knowledge, the generally revelation of God is subsumed by the specific revelation of God that allows this to become highly super-charged and reified. The four like stages of a rocket are then jettisoned or are then erased and subsumed even as the appearance of the four corners of the square vanish in forming the circle of same and equal area. The area represents simultaneously force or space and is symbolized by topological invariant factors that can be understood as absolutely symbolic on a spiritual level. The foundation of this is given in our explanation of the Pyramid Fireside that is available Youtube and

These four groupings of ancient spiritual knowledge are further given as the four basic stone types in the building of the Pyramid: White Marble, Red Granite, Black Chocolate Granite, and Yellow Limestone. These form the colors associated with the four traditions and four directions as given in the Medicine Wheel Teaching arising from the Four-Corners area of the Rocky Mountains of the United States promulgated by the current living guardian of the Cause of God and his fellow co-workers, supporters, and friends, and reinforced by the Council of the 24 elders ( So immense in scope, and far-reaching in its implications is this great endeavor that our finite minds are bewildered and unable to comprehend when attempting to contemplate its full import at the present time. Suffice it to say that it is no coincidence that great work is commencing now at the time of the publication of The Crimson Book—with the Book of the Temple—Kitab-i-Haykal soon to follow.

In the meantime  with the arc safely tabernacle in Shiloh, our work goes forward in the most practical of way as ‘Abdu’l-Baha has written “Walk the mystic spiritual path with practical feet.” This parallels with the hall-mark philosophy of American pragmatic endeavor, tempered with spiritual diversity, in the presence of the unknown and impenetrable mystery, that which the Alchemist referred to as the Universal Solvent—that into which all things are resolved, and out of which matrix al things may likewise be thought to have diversified and appeared. “And the sprit of God was moving over the face of the waters and darkness covered the face e of the DEEP…”

Attached to this announcement are some recent documents that bear upon current focus in three parts.

Your servant,

Prayer of the Covenant

Here is a prayer we found in commemoration of the 99th anniversary of the birthday of the Lamb, Aug. 22, 1914 to Aug. 22, 2013.

Prayer of the Covenant

My God! My God! I ask Thee to forgive everything save my servitude to Thy Supreme Threshold, and I declare myself innocent of any proclamation or praise, save my adoration for Thy Merciful Presence. I deprive myself of every adornment, save that of humiliation and contrition and evanescence before Thy Oneness. I flee from every station save that of arrival in the court of Thy Divine Eternity. By Thy Power, verily, the sweetness of servitude is the food of my spirit; with the fragrance of servitude my breast will be dilated, my being refreshed, my heart delighted, my eyes brightened, my nostrils perfumed, and in it is the healing of my disease, the allaying of my burning thirst, the soothing of my pain.

   Immerse me, O my God, in this most bounteous, rolling Ocean; give me to drink of this sweet, abundant Water; cause me to enter this Gateway of Righteousness; ordain me for this praiseworthy Station; cause me to obtain this Cup which is overflowing with the living water; light in the crystal of my heart this Lamp which is giving forth its illuminating, brilliant radiance; and strengthen me for the service of Thy Cause, O my Lord, the Forgiver! Accept my servitude in the court of Thy Holy Oneness, O Thou, the Manifestor of Mount Sinai. Assist me to abide in its conditions, O Thou, the Authority of Manifestation. Aid me to assist Thy Cause in the eastern and western parts of the earth, O Thou the Possessor of the Day of Resurrection. I ask Thee, by Thy written Book, dispersed writings—by Thy Hidden Mystery, and Thy firm proclamations—to cause me to be steadfast in servitude to Thee, O my Lord, the Forgiver! Verily, Thou art the powerful over that which Thou wishest; and verily, Thou art the Merciful, the Compassionate.


"O Lord! Open Thou the door. Provide the means, prepare the way, make safe the path. 
That  we may be guided to those souls, whose hearts  are prepared for Thy Cause, 
and that they may be guided to us. Verily, 
Thou art the Merciful, the Most Bountiful, the All-Powerful!"

Dear friends,

The full on-line fireside series is now available free of price on both YouTube and At at the top there is also a purple button quick-link to

The Youtube Playlist can be found at this link:

This online version of the firesides can be downloaded from youtube and burned to dvd by all the friends. Also those who know other languages are encouraged to spontaneously translate these firesides into their own native tongue and overdub the video with the English turned down in the background.

These firesides have been and will always be free of price for the safety, security, and salvation of the people. They are not the Baha'i faith but contain the proofs and evidence for the Baha'i Faith. Where Judaism is the root, and Christianity is the branch, the Baha'i Faith is the leaf flower and fruit of the same tree.

The mission of the living Davidic King--entitled the Guardian of the Baha'i Faith--who is the irremovable member for life of the Universal House of Justice of Baha'ullah ( the executive branch (see Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha , p. 15) is to unite all the people of the world. This can only be accomplished when the man-made veils of separation and division are removed and the people are able to attain to their own personal and independent understanding of God as they know and experience that Divine Reality in the inner temple of the reality of their own hearts, mind, and soul. This is the science of the love of God which all can learn, but cannot be taught. As all draw closer tot he real Center of Being, all naturally grow closer to one another. Thus the Oneness of Humanity is established upon the firm foundation of JUSTICE--the most great Justice for all--justice meaning seeing the truth with our own eyes and knowing with our own direct and immediate knowledge and not through that of our neighbor as defined by Baha'u'llah in the first Hidden Word.

This Unity of of human beings--therefore is a Unity in Diversity. Thus the individual and society of the group are dually transformed in a single moment of spiritual education and rapture. While each person is sovereign in their own private relationship with God and the Divine Reality within their own being, this inner reality of the soul--only through the power of the Covenant of God--then corresponds to the outer reality of the Divine and everlasting Kingdom (Davidic) establish on earth as it is in heaven is perfect social application, true faith, wisdom, purity, and spirituality.

Only those who God has chosen Himself to allow to have the veils of separation and division removed become freed from outer forms and imitations, and are able to draw very close to the Center of Being both inwardly and outwardly as the divine and spiritual process of everlasting life in eternal paradise mirrored on earth via the knowledge of the reality of the Universal Manifestation of God in this Day, Baha'u'llah and the sucessorship of His Covenant upon the throne of King David as a mighty power and supreme potency hidden and concealed within the world of being as the Center of Unity and direction of the point of adoration amongst the people and thus the differences that are apparent therein resolves itself.

It is my persona hope that all the people of the world will be free from the clutter that fills their minds in any form and be able to see the truth for themselves with their own eyes. It is not my prayer that all should be Baha'i. There are over 6 million Baha'i in the world, most outside the Covenant and we can see what little good that is doing. But it is my prayer that each individual person should be free from all indoctrination, bunk ideas, and clutter and see the truth directly and immediately from their own perspective, their own unique point of view, and personal vantage point. When this prayer is answered, of course the people will see the truth about Baha'u'llah and the true Universal House of Justice ( with the living descendant of King David as its president as those are true and real well. But none of that even matter one wit, as long as the majority remains blindly following anyone, or any group, or any ideology. All codification comes between man and God. The pure relationship between lover and Beloved must be established in the hearts minds and souls of the people. That is private personal choice. Baha'u'llah affirms in the Iqan "No one's faith can be conditioned by anyone except himself!" Thus only the pure of heart can turn to God in and of themselves. This fireside series, is an aid and assistance to remove the clutter. As Christianity is the largest most corrupt hijacked bunk religion separated from Reality, it targets the theologies, doctrines, dogmas and creeds, prevalent among the Christian people of the West who are duped by their priestcraft and politicians to wage war, steal oil, and drop the nuclear bombs--all against the real wishes and loving desires of Jesus Christ--yet do that in his name for the almighty dollar!?! Thus Jesus died for those sins so we could be able to recognize the coming of the potency of the "Everlasting Father" seated upon "David's throne" (Is. 9:6-7)  in Baha'ullah and His son 'Abdu'l-Baha after Him. As in the body when the impediment is removed the body heals itself. No doctor ever healed anyone. They simple remove the impediment, clean the wound, and the body heals itself.

Thus through these firesides online we pray the impediment is removed form both individuals and the group. We pray that the personal and group wounds are cleaned., and that the body of humanity will then be able to heal itself, coming together in love and affiliation in  the divine and everlasting Kingdom that is now established since 2001 will become an everlasting reality of love and light for all people--millions and billions--and not just the handful of lovers--thousands and thousands--that ardently work without ceasing day and night along with their fellow believer and equal the descendant of king David that God has purposed  in the world today to help bring about this great work.

When the impediment of slander calumny, and lies is removed, the Unity of Human beings in their diversity will result: as the body of God, the body of the spiritual reality of human beings heals itself!

in El Abha,

your servant,



"Moral life consists in the government of one's self.
Immortality is government of a human soul by the Divine Will."

In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus said: "Not my will O Lord, but Thine" (Lk. 22:42 KJV). This teaching shows that it is only when we align our will with the will of God that we enter into sympathetic vibration (like a tuning fork) and receive our rays of the Holy Spirit. Only the human soul has the capacity to receive this possession of the Holy Ghost—to at once possess it and be possessed by it. Through this possession the true lover of Divinity enters into an immortal relationship as it is written: "Behold I died and I am alive for evermore" (Rev. 1:18 RSV) and: "O SON OF MAN! If thou lovest Me, turn away from thyself; and if thou seekest My pleasure, regard not thine own; that thou mayest die in Me and I may eternally live in thee." (Baha'u'llah, HW A7)

The Will of God today as manifested in our personal experiences of immediate Reality is tabernacled through the Covenant of Baha'u'llah (Kitab-i-Ahd) and the sacred Will and Testament of `Abdu'l-Baha (W&T) that maintains the sanctity of the Holy Precinct through which the personal spiritual practice of Will Alignment is maintained in both individual and social transformation.

The Twin Holy Documents which together form one single sacred scroll "written within and on the back and sealed with 7 seals" is the appearance of the most Mighty Document in our midst (see "Revelation Explained,", ch. 5 for more). This is the appearance of the Divine Will amongst you and its tabernacling in the Holy Temple of God.

The communion of the Holy Ghost (2 Cor. 13:14 KJV) therefore infuses the LOVE of God and His might, His power, His ecstasy, and His glory within the crucible of the KNOWing Soul that is pure and receptive as it is written in the Hidden Words of Baha'u'llah and the Apostle Paul:

"Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ?... What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" (1 Cor. 6:16, 19 KJV)

"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

"Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God [the knowledge of the Real]. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

"But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned...

"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ." (1 Cor. 2: 7-10, 12-14, 16 KJV)

"O SON OF BEING! Thy heart is My home; sanctify it for My descent. Thy spirit is My place of revelation; cleanse it for My manifestation." (Baha'u'llah: HW A59)

"O SON OF MAN! The temple of being is My throne; cleanse it of all things, that there I may be established and there I may abide." (Baha'u'llah: HW A58)

"It should be remembered in this connection that the one true God is in Himself exalted beyond and above proximity and remoteness. His reality transcendeth such limitations. His relationship to His creatures knoweth no degrees. That some are near and others are far is to be ascribed to the manifestations themselves.

"That the heart is the throne, in which the Revelation of God the All-Merciful is centered, is attested by the holy utterances which We have formerly revealed.

"Among them is this saying: "Earth and heaven cannot contain Me; what can alone contain Me is the heart of him that believeth in Me, and is faithful to My Cause." How often hath the human heart, which is the recipient of the light of God and the seat of the revelation of the All-Merciful, erred from Him Who is the Source of that light and the Well Spring of that revelation. It is the waywardness of the heart that removeth it far from God, and condemneth it to remoteness from Him. Those hearts, however, that are aware of His Presence, are close to Him, and are to be regarded as having drawn nigh unto His throne." (Baha'u'llah: GL XCIII )

In the union of the Temple of God in which we worship God in the comm-union with God here is the Love of God united with the immediate Knowledge of God (see last chapter of SAQ) where this soul--governed by the Divine Will of God--lives an immortal life immortally.

Those outside have no share in the Bounty of this Enjoyment.

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony [W&T] and they loved not their lives unto the death." (Rev. 12:10-11 KJV)

Today, the enjoyments and pleasures and bounties of immortality have been given to that company of the Covenant that in alignment with the Divine Will are able to REINFORCE the living Executive Branch as it is written:

"The legislative body must reinforce the executive [Davidic King], the executive must aid and assist the legislative body so that through the close union and harmony of these two forces, the foundation of fairness and justice may become firm and strong, that all the regions of the world may become even as Paradise itself." (W&T, p. 15)

When people awaken to the fulfillment of this spiritual equation in their own lives, they will recognize that the throne of David has been placed by God upon the earth as the catalyst for a transformation unfathomed in its depths—the deep things of God—by any of the prophets and believers who have lived in the prior times. This is set into motion by the test of the Guardianship of the Baha'i Faith which is to last forever (Pslams 89)—the continued lineage of Baha'u'llah through His son `Abdu'l-Baha  seated upon David's throne  as the Presidency and Executive Branch of the  true Universal House of Justice ( of Baha'u'llah:

"I, The Ancient Beauty ruleth upon the throne of David.
Thus hath my Pen spoken that which the
histories of bygone ages have related."
~ Proclamation of Baha'u'llah, p. 89

The TRUTH of this Teaching is known only to those who have received the gift of this Real Immortality.

By the Power of the Covenant it is accomplished.

And the LORD stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and the spirit of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, and the spirit of all the remnant of the people; and they came and did work in the house of the LORD of hosts, their God, (Hag. 1:14 KJV)

This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit [the Holy Ghost], saith the LORD of hosts. (Zech. 4:6 KJV)

"Moral life consists in the government of one's self. Immortality is government of a human soul by the Divine Will."—`Abdu'l-Baha

Neal Chase,


Hello Everyone,

Beloved Guardian Mr.Neal Chase is regularly updating a new site

He is uploading the covenant firesides there, kindly visits the site and take the benefits of it.

following below is the Guardian message regarding it.

GOOD NEWS!! The Covenant fireside (Fireside 4) is now up online!

Also the new edit of the Purpose of Life (Fireside 1).

These first four firesides form the educational foundation.



"Meditation is the key for opening the doors of mysteries.

In that state man abstracts himself;

in that state man withdraws himself from all outside objects;

in that subjective mood he is immersed in the ocean of spiritual life

and can unfold the secrets of things-in-themselves."

-- 'Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 175.

Dear All,

This 31 day period of NawRuz leading to Ridvan is of special spiritual potency and heavenly gift. Many have recently described the intensity of heightened vibration during these days at this time. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the public Declaration of Baha'u'llah in the Ridvan (Paradise) garden in the year 1863 and the 50th from the 100th anniversary Jubilee in 1963 the birth of the mission of the Establisher of the Baha'i Faith Dr. Leland Jensen.

"Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan." (Lev. 25:10 NIV)

Many outside the world of the Baha'i Faith and outside our current grounding in the Covenant of Baha'u'llah fulfilled in the Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha remain in awe and caught up along with the ease in which science and religion--the confluence of inner and outer spiritual reality--are practiced by the guides and adepts who have publicly declared their allegiance to this unyielding Cause as servants of the light! I am happy to live in the great day when the spiritual and intellectual giants foretold by Baha'u'llah in His prophecies and eagerly awaited and anticipated by Dr. Jensen in The Most Mighty Document are now arriving on the scene from out all the corners of the world and within the United States of America at this time!

In the Iqan Baha'u'llah states: "Do men think when they say 'We believe' they shall be let alone and not be put to proof?"(Q. 71:26)

"Put to proof" means to "test." Like John says to test the spirits to see if they are true: "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God" (1 Jn. 4:1 RSV).

This proving or testing is the foundation of scientific religion. Those steeped and engrossed in human learning are totally unfamiliar with this concept. This concept of scientific religion is a new teaching--of a new paradigm--that was revealed by Baha'u'llah, elucidated by 'Abdu'l-Baha, and established by Dr. Jensen and myself. It cannot be found anywhere else--or in any other school of thought. It is part of the essential remedy for the ills of humanity today--and constitutes a liberated dynamic approach to the process of individual human spiritual growth and evolution as well as that of the group from a scientific standpoint. It forms the basis of the Criterion.

Now other people have worked toward a similar understanding of this type colored through the lamp-glass of their own spiritual-biography and the degree of luminosity apparent in the day and age in which they lived--but their work remained for the most part unfinished and incomplete. As such, they can be considered forerunners to this new understanding and new outlook. Baha'u'llah refers to some of these personalities throughout history in His Tablet of Wisdom. Great persons involved in this struggle in modern times include Isaac Newton, Piazzi Smith, Albert Einstein, Immanuel Velikovsky, William James, and others. The point is this: as each individual has their own personal individual concerns--each person must be addressed individually based on their own context and their own independent views. What this means is that no matter what one person believes or experiences they do this from the standpoint of their own subjective perspective.

For example, 'Abdu'l-Baha tells the story of the King who wished all human knowledge to be condensed into one book. The scholars proceeded and made an vast encyclopedia set. The king stated this was too long. They came back with three volumes. He again said that was too long. They returned with one lengthy book. Again he said too long. They gave him one journal lengthy article. He again complained and after about a year they produced a single paragraph. He said it was still too complicated to understand. So he said he wanted it summed up in one word. They came back and gave it to him. He read the one word, it said: "Perhaps."

Thus the foundation of all human knowledge and human learning rests upon the foundation of maybe, maybe not. This is the modern appearance of ideas like the uncertainty principle in physics and the incompleteness theorem of Gödel in mathematics, and the moral and social relativism in succession to social Darwinism.

While this language may well be new to some, according to the mainstream current argument amongst the people the most advanced thought of the Western mind is infected with what they call "modernism" and "post-modern" critique. This has split current scientific thought of human learning in the West into two main warring groups: (a) the natural scientists and (b) the human scientists. Each group has a different approach, philosophy, language, terminology, and world-view. Each individual person that ascribes to either--or some hybrid of the two--remains in different levels of quandary. While the post-modern authors provide a strong critique against modernism they normally offer no viable alternative. To cite the history, source material, personalities, and cultural roots of this problem or to illuminate it more is beyond the scope of this short letter. To use the terminology of radical-empiricism, phenomenology, and existential and transpersonal studies is too cumbersome for this brief note--though 'Abdu'l-Baha expressly addresses all these points in his writings and talks--if the reader be sagacious and circumscript while reading the pertinent statements of the Master.

For example in Tablets (Vol. II, p. 287) 'Abdu'l-Baha refers to God as the Absent-Present in the world of humanity:

"Regarding thine entrance with thy friend into the gallery lighted with lamps, know thou that gallery is the world of humanity and the lamps His wonderful teaching, His all-wisdom, His perfect bounty and His clear manifestation. He is the Absent-Present in the world of humanity."

Thus Muhammad has declared Atheism: "There is no God"--and thus destroyed all idols of vain imagination and cleansed the doors of perception from falsity. Amin'u'llah then rejoins: "but God". So when we say we know nothing in essence. They say there is no God. They have no scientific or viable conception of the concept of the manifestation of the qualities and attributes of God either in general or specific revelation. Further they do not even know what we mean when we say general or specific revelation. They do not even understand what we mean when we speak of the Varieties of religious experience as did William James. They do not know of noetic pluralism. They remain destitute and ignorant of the scientific understanding of prophecy. They remain outside because they have not had the opportunity to enter within--or if given that opportunity they have refused, or having entered within, they have then left and gone back out.

Thus while science was meant to ground and purify the doors of perception from the dross of vain imaginations, the people have yet to use the grounding of being expressed as both inner and outer science to achieve an accelerated growth pattern in harmony and synergy with the dynamic potential of the Center of Being.

If we take 'Abdu'l-Baha for example we will see that he is caught up in the prophecies of the Bab and Baha'u'llah. He was born on the exact prophesied date for the Bab in 1844 on the same day. His mission is prophesied of as the BRANCH in the Bible (see Is. 11, Zech, 3., etc...). He was on Mt. Carmel and with Baha'u'llah in all his journeys at the prophesied place, and his name is given in various places as well. Now all this gave certitude to both 'Abdu'l-Baha and the believers of the truth of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah. But 'Abdu'l-Baha is clear that the Bab and Baha'u'llah are the supreme manifestations and all else are servants.

"His Holiness, the Exalted One (the Bab), is the Manifestation of the Unity and Oneness of God and the Forerunner of the Ancient Beauty. His Holiness the Abha Beauty (may my life be a sacrifice for His steadfast friends) is the Supreme Manifestation of God and the Dayspring of His Most Divine Essence. All others are servants unto Him and do His bidding."(W&T, p. 19)

Thus when God opens up the minds of the servants to see how prophecy is fulfilled, and when these servants are intimately associated with the living Promised One who comes in both the lesser and greater Covenant they will be guided by God to sometimes see how their personal role of service in the fleeting moment fulfills important tasks current in the Divine Plan.  The Western people find this idea very foreign. First they are mostly "scientific" and by that they mean materialist (in philosophy and outlook) and atheistic. They view only material objects as the Real. They call this "objective." Second they view this type of religious experience at best as variable and subjective (irreal) and at worst through abnormal psychology.

This is why God has purposed the present Guardian to be knowledgeable about these things. As the world of Islam already experienced the Bab, Baha'u'llah, and 'Abdu'l-Baha whom they rejected, God has purposed the living Guardian and the loyal active companions of the living Guardian a special mission and special message to convey to the diverse peoples. In so doing he does not let the left hand know what the right hand is doing. God is no respecter of persons. We are all pawns in His grasp--including me--and He moves us along the board as he so pleases. The branch cannot boast for it is dependent upon the Root (Romans ch. 11). Thus we are servants, and unlike Iblis who refused to bow down before Adam, we are purposed to serve Adam and all his generations, in each and every generation: that is, that was, and that is yet to come.

"Thraldom to the Blessed Perfection is my glorious and refulgent diadem, and servitude to all the human race my perpetual religion... No name, no title, no mention, no commendation have I, nor will ever have, except 'Abdu'l-Baha. This is my longing. This is my greatest yearning. This is my eternal life. This is my everlasting glory."--'Abdu'l-Baha

The Covenant of God and His Testament is a bounty to the righteous and a curse to the wicked. On hearing this Command some faces have rejoiced by this Glowing Lamp, and others become gloomy and in their hearts the fire of jealousy and rebellion hath been kindled. They disobeyed the Command of their Lord the Merciful, endeavored to spread lies and arose to divulge seditious rumors contrary to that which was descended from God. They imagine that they are able to resist this Power, which penetrates into the heart of the contingent world, or to cover the Truth through their false tongues and complicated opinions, and to withhold this Sea from surging, the holy fragrances from being spread, and the breaths of the Spirit of the Ancient from reaching the beloved! No, by no means! Verily, the Word of God penetrates into the core of all things and cannot be resisted either by the hosts of the world or by the armies of the enemies! In the past ages there is a warning to every intelligent one! Ye shall see their banners reversed, their sign abolished, their happiness destroyed in those regions in a similar way to the disappointment of their hopes in the East.

But, as the people of the West are still children in the Cause and have not perfect knowledge of its reality and validity, the Nakazeen thought it to be an easy prey and availed themselves of this opportunity for laying doubts and suspicions, speaking false words, divulging seditious calumnies among the people. Ye shall see all this as scattered dust, and all these thick, dark clouds which were gathered in those far regions, will disappear and the Sun of Certainty and Reality shall shine with the Most Dazzling Light; the darkness will vanish, the firm believers will be in great joy, and the Nakazeen shall be in evident loss.

…I hope that upon the coming of each auspicious day the friends of God may become doubled, that is, may become twofold; that the gentle fragrances of the love of God may be spread so universally that large cohorts enter under the shadow of the Word of God in a short space of time, and arise to serve, according to the heavenly instructions, in order that strife and warfare may vanish wholly from the human world, and the beauty of love, friendship and harmony may appear with such an appearance that all the intellects may become astonished, all the souls entranced and all the hearts attracted. O ye friends! O ye maid-servants of the Merciful! Should ye realize in what a state this Tablet is written, assuredly ye will soar heavenward with joy and exultations and begin to cry out: "Glad-tidings! Glad-tidings!"

Today the whole world is heedless and ye are aware; all are in sleep and ye are wide awake; all are deprived and ye are the custodians of the mysteries of the Kingdom! Therefore, to render thanks for these bounties, open ye the tongue of praise and glorification and engage yourselves in the divine commemoration, in order that the confirmation may be added and the assistance may become renewed! O ye beloved! O ye maid-servants of the Merciful! What a wonderful meeting [under the provisions of the Covenant] ye have arranged and longed for the beauty of service and have arisen to spread the fragrances of God! Truly I declare, ye are confirmed by the cohorts of the Supreme Concourse and are reinforced and empowered by the Exalted Realm! When the confirmation of the Holy Spirit descendeth, ye are not a drop, but a roaring sea! Ye are the stars of the horizon of guidance! If this committee become firm, it will grow and develop; if it remain steadfast, it will become a gift of the Almighty to the human world; if it last, it will display marvelous signs for the well-being of the children of man! The hosts of the Kingdom of Abha are drawn and filed up in battle-array on the plain of the Supreme Apex and are expecting that a band of volunteers step upon the field of action with the intention of service; so that they may assist that band and make it victorious and triumphant.

O Thou Almighty God! Confirm Thou these friends and the maid-servants of the Merciful! Grant Thou to them assistance. Open Thou before their faces the closed doors and make them intimate with the fragrances of holiness, so that they may become the confident friends of each other; raise the melody and the song of joy and sing the harmony of heaven, in order that they may exhilarate and gladden the regions of the West and impart attraction and ecstasy! Make Thou them the magnets of love so that they may attract the hearts to the Kingdom of Abha! Verily, Thou art the Powerful and the Mighty; and Thou art the Giver, the Seer and the Hearer! There is no God but Thee, the Generous, the Merciful! O ye whom God hath chosen from among those who are called!—know that "many are called but few are chosen"!—upon whom He caused the evident Light to descend; whom He guided into the right Path, and to whom He gave the Glad-tidings of the Great Success! Ye must be sincere and faithful, ye must follow the ordinances which refer to the Covenant of God, who is the solid edifice. O ye beloved of God, know that steadfastness and firmness in this new and wonderful Covenant is indeed the spirit that quickeneth the hearts which are overflowing with the love of the Glorious Lord; verily, it is the power which penetrates into the hearts of the people of the world! Your Lord hath assuredly promised His servants who are firm and steadfast to render them victorious at all times, to exalt their word, propagate their power, diffuse their lights, strengthen their hearts, elevate their banners, assist their hosts, brighten their stars, increase the abundance of the showers of mercy upon them, and enable the brave lions (or teachers) to conquer. Hasten, hasten, O ye firm believers! Hasten, hasten, O ye steadfast! Abandon the heedless, set aside every ignorant, take hold of the strong rope, be firm in this Great Cause, draw light from this Evident Light, be patient and be steadfast in this wise Religion! Ye shall see the hosts of inspiration descending successively from the Supreme World, the procession of attraction falling incessantly from the heights of heaven, the abundance of the Kingdom of El-Abha outpouring continually and the teachings of God penetrating with the utmost power, while the heedless are indeed in evident loss.


Regarding the questions of the Sabbath Day:

"I am interested and bit perplexed with the subject of the Sabbath as I was in a Religion that lead me to believe that this commandment was not to be forgotten as it is the only commandment that says to Remember it. Jesus went into the Temple on the Sabbath as it was his custom and yet I read that Baha'u'llah says He abolished it. I thought Sunday worship came from the pagans and that the early Christians still kept the Sabbath. I left this fear based belief and prayed for direction in finding a faith with the Baha'i beliefs and the next day I found the Faith. Help me have some understanding on this subject as I cannot understand forgetting the Sabbath as I thought this to be the Covenant of God and His Seal.? Help! Thanks and many Blessings"

"One last question. Can I get some understanding on The Lord's day meaning in Rev. and the Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it Holy? I still have stuff crop up on this as I was taught in depth regarding the Sabbath as being the marker of the true faith and their interp. of Rev. Thank you so much and many Blessings to you and your staff delivering the TRUTH to a dark world."

Remembering the Sabbath Day and to keep it holy is a truth that transcends all the religious faiths and forms an integral part of the Revelation of God and the means and mechanism for the creation of the Universe and everything in it in which man ascends through 6 stages and is reunited with God on the seventh plane. Thus in the formation of the calendar of the week (where 7 is the natural fourth of a single lunar month of light 28/4 = 7) it was set forth for both man and beast to rest on this day in commemoration of the completion of purpose of union with God. This was set forth at the foundation of the world by the manifestation of Adam and was reestablished by Noah in the Naochide laws and again upheld by Moses in the Ten Commandments. The truth is the Aqdas of Baha'u'llah – the real one – is set forth in the forma and style of the Ten Commandments – arranged in the Most perfect Form - but this, Shoghi Effendi tells us - has been kept from the people – and thus the Sabbath day is upheld and explained by the Bab, Baha'u'llah and `Abdu'l-Baha in this Great Day.

At the time Moses reiterated this fundamental outpouring of 7 the law was that any boss or owner was to let the people employed rest as well as beast on this day or that boss or slave master would face the death penalty. Thus the people were free to have this day to worship the Lord in any way they saw fit – they could go fishing, farm there own land or garden, second time with family and friends, commune with nature or God whatsoever they saw fit with no one else to force them or compel them. Thus a day of rest fro man and beast. By the time of Jesus' first advent this law which was made for the people was so perverted that the establishment, the powers that be, commanded no one work or even move on that day or they would have them killed! Thus Jesus overturned this corrupt interpretation (interpolation) of the "law" and "violated" the Sabbath commands by healing the sick and picking corn on the day of rest as he was wont to do. When accused of such nonsense he responded that "Man was not made for the Sabbath but that the Sabbath was made for man." This is recorded in the gospel and this is what Baha'u'llah is referring to when he speaks of Jesus abrogation – for it was the abrogation of the pervasion of men and not the abrogation of God's meaning of the meaning of the Day of Rest that God created for man, but of the perversion of the people who lorded it over on others in, as you have said, the fear-based religion of hate and dominance contra to the Wishes and Will of the Living, Loving and caring God that made us all and the universe and everything in it.

This perversion of the Sabbath law of the seventh day, has been passed on down today in certain ignorant Christian Sects that ignore the true Teaching of Jesus Christ on this point as explicitly described in the gospels of the Holy Bible. Instead they pervert the very word of God to attempt to condemn those people who do not hold the "day" they say is Sabbath or do not hold that "day" they way the say it should be held and thus accuse and persecute others in the same way that the Pharisees and Seduces accused and persecuted Jesus. It is such a glaring hypocrisy for them to place that false burden of "seventh day theology" made up by man of current clergy that Jesus lifted off the souls of the people and lovers of God way back when about 2000 years ago! Thus these nefarious ones put back onto the people and innocent ones false thinking to keep them corralled into false and imitation forms of worship within their own congregations and limited view of it all. This is the meaning of the abrogation of the perversion and it is the perversion of the Sabbath that Jesus abolished simultaneous to his resentment of the reality, for it is "the spirit that giveth life an the letter that killeth." Thus sects that "command" strict adherence to some concocted form of "the seventh day" and in opposition of Jesus Christ in the Bible and he himself will judge them. In order to be saved they say they must accept and believe in Jesus. Thus if they don't accept his teaching on the Sabbath they don't believe in him and therefore they are not saved at all.

Now the perpetual calendar which is the entire history of the world according to the weekdays as we now have it going back into antiquity is known to be in great need of reconstitution for this count of days was lost at several different periods in history and in fact is not a valid and established unbroken chain of days of the week. Thus all arguments about which day was the seventh day during the days of Moses or Christ are superficial and fallacious pending the scientific investigation of the reality of the issue. You can deepen yourself in this matter more by studying the perpetual calendar and the works of such as Newton and others who have attempted to work toward establishing accurate chronology in history for historical events from ancient times until today. This is a scientific, mathematical and historical matter, which a future elected House of Justice will investigate and in the end the calendars of the diverse peoples of the world East and West will be rectified in universal manner.

At any rate the reason to keep the Sabbath Day and remember it pertains to the prophecies of God about "entering into His Rest". It is more important to actually enter into the rest than to blindly hold to any one of seven 24 hour days in remembrance of this Great Sabbath and real Sabbath of the Holy Day of the Lord. In order that the people should not forget the true Sabbath which is the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth, 7 week days were set aside and the seventh marked out in commemoration of the Real Sabbath day. This was done in antiquity in conjunction with the metaphysical reality of the spiritual and material worlds of God "as above so below." Thus this real Sabbath Day is Today – the Day of God – and no one keeps it Holy but those who today seek for God now at this time and to have Him and Him alone live above all within their hearts and minds and souls – the Rest is that God created the world within seven days and then rested on the seventh. Thus Man was created on the sixth Day and on the 7th Day He rested in our heart for all the universe cannot contain Him but the heart of the true believer can contain Him! This is the real meaning for at that point man is reunited with God and the Kingdom is established upon the earth as it is in heaven. "Thy heart is my home; sanctify it for My descent. Thy spirit is My place of revelation; cleanse it for My manifestation." (AHW#59)

This is the throne of the inner temple which outwardly is symbolized by the throne of King David which is the executive branch of the true UHJ so we can recognize the true UHJ of Baha'u'llah from fakes, frauds and imitations. These seven days for the Lord are given in the gospel of Peter as 1000 years each. Thus from the time of Adam in 4000 BC we have 6000 years until September 21, 2001 which are the six days of creation of man into the spiritual and everlasting image of God, and then we enter into His Rest, which is the Kingdom, both an inner spiritual mystery of divine union upon which the outer civilization of the Kingdom is founded upon. Thus Christ tells us "the Kingdom of God is within you" yet simultaneously prophesied in the Lord's Prayer "Thy Kingdom Come, It will be done on earth as it is in heaven". That time is now and this Day – God's Day today - is sacred. Yet who is keeping it sacred at this time? Those whom God has raised up for his very own self that's who!

Now Sabbath literally means place, abode, seat, rest and therefore in the Koran it tells us that after 6 days of 6000 years on the 7th day God ascended His throne. Again this is the throne of the Kingdom both of the inner and outer temple - the inner temple the heart of man, the outer temple his UHJ. Thus keeping the Sabbath is keeping the abode or location sacred, both within ourselves and of the true and undefiled UHJ recognized by the executive as it is written in the Book of Revelation "Nothing unclean shall enter it". It is also a physical location in the world – the sacred snow white spot - where it is spoken of in the Book of Revelation of the "Great White Throne" - Thus the location of the snow-white spot is holy and made white, even as Moses took off his sandals, and represents the spot of the crimson shore of reunion and the Sinai of the Mountain of God's Revelation and revealed truth. The sign of God for this is the throne of King David, for wheresoever this is located is known as Zion, for Zion means the location of David's throne and this is the place of His Rest of which the prophecies speak about and of which we explain in the 7th and final fireside which is the entire book of Revelation explained verse by verse with all the 7 seals 7 sets of 7 broken by the Lamb so that the Temple in heaven of prophecy should be opened and that the Covenant and Testament of God may be seen by all.

Now this principle of the Sabbath Day – that is the principle of the Seven Stages- is a physical and spiritual reality uniting both science and revelation – both the material and spiritual worlds into one cohesive integrated unity and principle that permeates every facet of the material and spiritual existence of which man's material, social, and spiritual evolution and advancement and progress is subject to in his journey back to the garden of God. Thus these Sevens are created for man so that man may Ascend to the 7th degree and apex of prosperity, and not the other way around as Jesus rebuked those Pharisees and Sadducees of perversion in his day even as he would rebuke them that perverts such things and foists them with nonsense and fear upon the people in this day.

Baha'u'llah thus reveals these Stages are Will (mashiyyat), Purpose (irádih), predestination (qadar), fate (qadá'), permission (idhn) or execution (imdá'), fixed time (ajal), and the book (kitáb):

"A praise sanctified from the mention of all mankind befitteth the sublime and most holy court of the Desired One, Who hath ordained that the completion of every existence be realized through the Seven Stages: Will, Purpose, Predestination, Fate, Permission, Fixed Time, and the Book - each of which is a bountiful and shoreless sea whose pearls are preserved and concealed within the shells of the inviolability of God, exalted be His glory. In truth, should a man desire to expound upon these stages and stations, each of which is a wellspring of divine knowledge and a dawning-place of heavenly wisdom, he could not exhaust this theme with this pen and paper, and in the realm of true understanding, which is the seat of those who are nigh unto God, the pens and papers of the world would also not suffice him. He is the All-Powerful, Who hath made whatsoever He hath created, whether the atoms, that which is beneath them, or that which is above them, each a sign indicating and proclaiming His grandeur and sovereignty, His power and might, His generosity, bounty, and favor." (Baha'u'llah, Má'idiy-i Ásmání, vol. 8, pp. 191-192).

Thus the final or seventh stage is entitled Kitab which means Book. This is the resting of the Reality (haqq) within the Book of Revelation in this case the Kitab-i-Ahd Book of the Covenant which is contained within the Kitab-i-Aqdas and outwardly manifested in the provisions of the scared Will and Testament of `Abdu'l-Baha (The Will, Mashiyyat). Now this Book – Kitab – COMPLETION -  is really the Book of Reality both spiritual and material both science and revelation. `Abdu'l-Baha explains this degree of knowledge as the knowledge of the two books:

"There are two Books: one is the Book of Creation and the other is the Written Book. The Written Book consisteth of the heavenly scriptures which are revealed to the Prophets of God and have issued forth from the lips of His Manifestations. The Book of Creation is the preserved Tablet and the outspread Roll of existence. The Book of Creation is in accord with the Written Book." (`Abdu'l-Baha, Persian Tablets)

And Baha'u'llah confirms, in the Tablet of Wisdom, the Lawh-i-Hikmat: "Nature is God's Will and is its expression in and through the contingent world."

Thus in reality these two books are one Book of Reality which is the final stage of the Sabbath (seat, location, place or rest of God) which, we call, in reality: the Kingdom.

These seven stages therefore exist within all reality as endless permutations of seven sets of seven. The final four in descending order are within the realm of space and time of the contingent world, and the first three correspond to transcendental spiritual states.

Thus in descending order in the fourth stage of fate (qadá') it states that God created the world in seven days or 7 stages. These seven are great epochs of decreasing duration in which the world and life and man eventually came into being and are the 7 epochs of natural history, given variously as: Azoic, Archaeozoic, Proterozoic, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, Cenozoic, in which the sixth is the period of man's modern physical existence, an the 7th is now at this time the spiritual evolution of the establishment of the Kingdom. These 7 follow the pattern in genesis from azoic period of no life when the earth was without form and void, following the evolution of the plants and animals and then man's physical life upon the "sixth day". These seven stages of creation in Genesis (which means `origins') corresponded to the decreasing geological epochs in natural history and fossil strata amazingly enough as described in scientific literature. The seventh day is today which the spiritual evolution of man into the Kingdom of the Baha'i cycle which will last for 5000 century cycle.

The next set of seven corresponding to permission (idhn) or execution ((imdá') is the execution of the cycles of the 7 Universal Manifestations of God. `Abdu'l-Baha explains that Baha'u'llah is in fact the seventh Universal Manifestation of God withinthe sries of all planetary history going back before recorded time. The first Four Universal Manifestations precede Adam (known as Zydyk) and the Adamic cycle and are the founders of the 4 Great World Civilizations that existed before Anno Lux, the foundation of this 6000 years cycle of Adam. These civilizations are variously known as Titan, Mu, Lemuria, and Atlantis, each one being completely obliterated by global catastrophes of unimaginable proportions and earth changes and almost all traces being destroyed. As each one was obliterated a Universal Manifestation prevailed and lead survivors into the next Universal Cycle to found divine civilization in the next level of spiritual evolution of human kind.  Baha'u'llah mentions their existence in the "Gleanings" which you can refer and explains that over dwelling upon them can lead to fruitless pursuits. The point is the earth is very old and God's Cause is almost as ancient for man upon this terrestrial globe. In the Abha realm all things are made known. The 5th Universal Manifestation of God in planetary history is Adam founder of the Adamic cycle. Jesus Christ, herald of the Kingdom in the sixth and Baha'u'llah is the 7th thus Revealing the Kingdom which is the Day of God's rest. This series of 7 is repeated in the seven establishers (seven angels) of the 6000 years Adamic Cycle which is the next set of seven.

The next set of seven corresponding to fixed time (ajal) is the 6 days of creation of the Adamic cycle wherein Peter tells us in his second epistle chapter three verse 8 that "each day with the Lord is as 1000 years and 1000 years is as one day". Thus this brings us from 4000 BC until 2001 AD wherein it is revealed "We have appointed a FIXED TIME for you O people…" an the 7th Day is now this fixed-time of the Kingdom wherein the Koran gives the same 6000 years cycles and states then God ascends His throne.

The final set of seven stages is that which corresponds the Kitab or Book, wherein all creation physical and spiritual is written within the Book of Man even as each one should know the book of their own self. This is a period of seven 24 hour days in which the sperm of the father inseminate the ovum (egg) of the mother in the fallopian tube and then takes six 24 hour days to travel until the uterus upon which on the 7 days it rests. Thus "thou shalt remember the 7th day the Sabbath day and keep it Holy" for the soul of man alone can contain the throne and seat of God in mystic union as outwardly the throne of David, the point of unity, is the sign of the inner spiritual reality and oneness of being. Thus all the human race is as one family and justice is the power of the knowledge of God united with the pillar of his mercy and love.

Ascending into the world of spirit -  beyond space and time - we have the next set of seven corresponding to the stage of Qadar which has been variously translated as "predestination". This refers to the seven level of the reality of man and his progress, evolution and development in the world of being even as Baha'u'llah has revealed:

"Man observeth these seven stages in his own development. After the appearance of fate, execution becometh evident, and it is the same as the stage of permission. For every created thing its fixed-time, in other words, the duration of its existence, is set. After the fixed-time, the book, which is the stage of the completion of a thing, shall be laid bare and made manifest. To God belongeth praise this day! The foundation of all stations is manifest, and it is detachment from all things and submission to His behest. In this case, these stations themselves are unveiled." (Baha'u'llah, Má'idiy-i Ásmání, vol. 8, pp. 191-192)

These are the seven levels of the reality of man, which we have explained in another epistle corresponding to the evolution of man in the stages of mineral, vegetable, animal, human, angel, cherub and seraphim from physical to spiritual reality. In this epistle we have explained the relation of the seven stages to the seven periods of the atomic structure as well as to the universal principles corresponding to "as above so below" which Baha'u'llah confirms in the Lahw-i-Hikmat. Thus Baha'u'llah has revealed: "In truth, should a man desire to expound upon these stages and stations, each of which is a wellspring of divine knowledge and a dawning-place of heavenly wisdom, he could not exhaust this theme with this pen and paper, and in the realm of true understanding, which is the seat of those who are nigh unto God, the pens and papers of the world would also not suffice him. He is the All-Powerful, Who hath made whatsoever He hath created, whether the ATOMS [arranged in the seven periods], that which is beneath them, or that which is above them, each a sign indicating and proclaiming His grandeur and sovereignty…"

The next level of reality corresponding to the seven sets of seven is the level of the fixed archetypes, the lords of the species which manifest all reality from effulgence of endless qualities and attributes of God manifested through the Divine Will. This corresponds to the realm of Purpose Irada, for it is written and then "God PURPOSED Let US make Man in our Image and Our likeness". This is the everlasting purpose of God to create man into his spiritual image and the `Us' and the `Our' refer to the Nine Divine Archetypes manifested in the nine Divine Revelators of the Adamic Cycle. These are depicted as the Adam Kadmon on the Kabala tree where these Nine and the Tenth corresponding to the land or physical manifestation of the Kingdom on earth are arranged in a hierarchy of seven levels. Here we can see these 9 plus one with the Seven Levels of Ascent/Descent upon the ladder of lights so indicated.








The final level of Will, which is Mashiyyat represents the everlasting Covenant of God, that God will always be our God and that we will always be his people. It represents the reunion with God as we ascend from the lowest of the 7 worlds of the Book - Kitab - from the moment of conception and resting within the womb or matrix of the mother to the final stages of evolution from the womb of this world to be born into the next. In the final level of Will or Identity in which our Will becomes identical to the Will of God fully manifest and reveled in its highest potency and form.

These seven levels of Will conform to the 7 Valleys as revealed by Baha'u'llah and are identical to the 7 levels or stages of the 7 Firesides as taught exclusively in our school the waters of life free of price. Thus the soul comes to know the Will of God with their own eyes and not through the eyes of their neighbor; and is prepared for reunion/rest united with God to enter the heavenly Court of both this world and the next and present itself before the throne of being itself.

This is thus 7 sets of 7 confirming that "thou shalt remember the Sabbath Day and Keep it Holy". This is the fabric of the divine ether which permeates all reality and through which man is able to ascend and become created in the spiritual and everlasting image of God. It is the hope, the dream and the fulfillment of all Creation and of all lovers, saints poets, and prophets of yesteryear and the past.

Happy are those that have attained unto this reality!!

In this relation further more, the mystery of the 7 days of the week is also explained and made known. This for the purpose of comprehending the deeper truth expressed herein this open epistle. God willing we can set those forth at another time in writing, though they have been presented at forums. These 7 days of the week have thus been transformed by the spirit and renamed according to the divine attributes of God. They have been corrected and re-ordered by God through His Universal Manifestation in the Book, so that the first corresponds to our Saturday an the 7th – Independence or Freedom to our Friday. Thus is the Sabbath Day – the Day of our Freedom to what we will (refer to Baha'u'llah's Tablets ion freedom for more) – is protected and preserved within the Badi or Baha'i Calendar today and the seven days of the week continue in perpetuality imbued with a new spirit and upon which the 7th day is made for man as remembrance of God and day to do as he pleases for his own self which in the 7 stage is merged with the self of God, even as Jesus saith, "Not will will O Lord but thine!". Thus Free Will is the foundation of love for we cannot have true love without the expression of our free will and the ability to say no. Why some would say no to God and His love is something we will never understand, for we have said "yes!" and our eyes have been closed to this darksome world of materialism and opened to the brightly shining world of Light  and sprit in the love and knowledge of God. So we shall be eternally in the Houses of the Holy – even as Jesus saith "in My Father's House are many mansions"  - reunited with God for all time and for evermore.

In this respect it should be pointed out the 10 commandments which set forth the Sabbath, so set it forth as the fourth commandment of the ten. Thus the first commandment corresponds with Will, the second with purpose, the third of His Name with Qadar or Power and the fourth the Sabbath with fate. These four are perfectly correlated with the four letters of the name "Baha", which is B, H, A and Hamza in which Hamza represents the throne. The first therefore complies with Identity, the second with Quality and Attribute the third with Name and the fourth with function or action in reality - deed. Thus the fourth contains all the final seven within itself. For the cube of space in manifested from the center point of the seat or location or rest and from there extends in six cardinal directions up and down, front and back and left and right. Thus the fourth commandant counting down from the first is the seventh commandment countering up from the last and corresponds with the Sabbath day. `Abdu'l-Baha explain this meaning of the four-letters to the four commandments in the ring stone symbol of the name Baha (BHA') which real meaning if the real Light of God:

"The interpretation of the ring is not the meaning of the letters of its form; the real meaning is a symbol from the Real Light. The word BAHA or the form of this ring gives both ways alike the reality or significance of BAHA, which means Light. The Light of Truth. With this symbol this form of the ring, one can remember the meaning of that Light which means BAHA. When he looks upon the ring he may remember BAHA. This is the cause of remembrance, the form of this engraving on the stone. It can be read from four points the same., BAHA. One is the station of identity second qualities or attributes; third, the name; fourth, deeds, because every thing contains identity, attribute, name and deeds, which is its fragrance. For instance, the sun has identity, qualities, name and function. These four, BAHA, are symbols of four things." (`Abdu'l-Baha, Persian Tablets)

The true Aqdas of Baha'u'llah (KITAB - the Book) is thus in accordance with this pattern, as we have before explained:

[[[The true Aqdas when completed is fashioned after the Most Perfect Form. It is according to the four worlds correlated with the four letters of the most great name and as 1+2+3+4 = 10 it has basic ten parts. It is impossible to get into now at his time due to the enormity of other work and the great financial strain upon us at this time as well as the lack of proper office facilities to engage in that work at this time.

Suffice it to say, that Baha'u'llah revealed the Aqdas in such a way that the Covenant-breakers should never posses it or understand it! Like Moses that smashed the two tablets, what Baha'u'llah gives us are manuscripts fragments and shards that need to be codified into the Most Perfect Form. This is the mission of the Four Letters of the Most Great Name where the first two are twin manifestations and the second two are twin institutions appearing first as zugot in Joshua and Zerubbabel. Thus the fourth letter – hamza - being the throne or Temple, completes the cycles and is able to codify the book that shall be fleshed out by the fully elected UHJ at the appointed time.

From Shoghi Effendi:

"The Persians do not have the complete "Aqdas", nor even a complete compilation, as it is not yet a "book". The laws are encountered in many Tablets written by Baha'u'llah. For example, in a Tablet written to a certain person, He would suddenly announce a new Law. Some day, all of these will be compiled into a single book. "The Aqdas" will have to be translated by experts. The present Guardian will not do it. When the Baha'i State is formed, "The Aqdas" will be promulgated. The Laws are few but very strict….

"There are twenty-six volumes of the Tablets directed to persons, which contain parts of the "Aqdas". These will later be included in the "Aqdas".

"I have indicated some of these laws for present observance. I shall see how the people obey them and give them out gradually. Little by little the Guardian will indicate those Laws which are obligatory, binding, and those which are recommended." (Shoghi Effendi, To a Believer, Jan. 15 - Feb 11, 1956)

By attached and detached at the same time this is like the condition of the real physician who is detached from the disease and suffering of the patients yet is attached to remain in the condition of service in helping them to be cured. If he were not detached from their condition he would suffer from it, so he is attached to only God and detached from all else save God – in this condition of attachment and detachment, it tells us Jesus walked amongst the lepers and healed them, though himself did not have the leprosy nor did he catch it. On the other hind it states he who sits with a leper gets leprosy. Thus the man in activity "walks" and is attached to God to so induce the cure yet in that same activity remains detached from the conditions and circumstances of the people. Both Baha'u'llah and `Abdu'l-Baha have written upon these themes. Detachment is the quality and attribute that Krishna focused upon, even as Muhammad submission and Baha'u'llah Justice; true Justice which the world has never seen before.]]]

Thus if there be justice, `Abdu'l-Baha tells us, all this would be acknowledged by the pure of heart as true for it is a spiritual and intellectual reality a gift from God given to us by a Revelation of Today that came direct from God!

On behalf of all the members active here at the world center I bid you greetings! Love and bounty to you and your son, and we hope to meet with you in person shortly as God's Will permits.

Yours servant in El Abha,
