To Build the Kingdom (75:0)

The Kingdom is now being established on the earth because Christ has returned: (75:1)

1.".. and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose." (isa 35:1-2) (75:2) see

2."He will feed His flock like a shepherd.." (isa 40:11) (75:3) see

3."In that day.. he shall come.. from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, and.. According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt (40 years) will I shew unto him marvelous things." [Coming out.. Egypt = 40yrs & Bahá'u'lláh's tenure = 40 yrs. ] (mic 7:12-15) (75:4) see

4."Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people.." (rev 21:3) (75:5) see

"Christ will come like Lightning": Christians use the prophecy in Matthew about 'lightning' to indicate Him coming instantly, but disregard its counterpart in Luke. It is helpful to see them together: (75:6) 81

From Matthew 24:27: "For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man." (75:7) see

From Luke 17:24-26: "For the Son of Man in his day will be like lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other."But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation (class of people)". Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man." (see Note above) (75:8) see
