1st Coming - Understand Prophecy by -Yamartino- 1 Para
Chapter of  60

The Person whom I speak of is the Persian Nobleman of the 19th century, known to history as Baha'u'llah, the Glory of God. He appeared at a time when movements throughout the Christian world were confidently announcing Christ's imminent Return. Baha'u'llah's credentials were historic. He was a direct descendant of King David, fulfilling the ancient promise that the Messiah would sit upon David's throne. He willingly endured forty years of imprisonment and exile for proclaiming that He was the One promised to all religions. From His prison, He addressed letters to the world's kings, rulers, and religious leaders calling upon them to hearken to the Word of God, to establish peace, and to accept Him. He warned them in explicit language of the consequences of their actions, and predicted their fates with an accuracy that can only be understood as prophetic. Thousands were called upon to give their lives for Him, as the religious leaders and government arose to snuff out the new Faith. The farther He was exiled from His native land, the greater the number of those who recognized him and arose to teach His Faith. He had sacrificed the wealth, comfort and social position that were His by birthright. Though innocent of any crime, He was beaten, poisoned, stoned and maligned. Yet, He feared no one, and never wavered in His proclamation of the Word of God. He wrote extensively of the need to establish world peace, the unity of religions and races, the need for a universal language and script, the necessity for a supreme court for the entire world, the equality of women and men as well as many other far-sighted necessities for the establishment of a thriving, spiritual world civilization - the Kingdom of God on Earth. He called upon His followers to purify their hearts, to consecrate their lives to the betterment of the world, to prefer others before themselves, and to associate with all peoples and religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship (59:7)
