IV. He is True who Seeks only God's Glory:
"My doctrine is not my own but His Who sent me. If any man's will is to do His will, he shall know whether the teaching is from God or whether I speak on My Own authority. He who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but he who seeks the glory of Him who sent Him is true." (joh 7:16-18) (24:11) see

IV.A. "Verily, He Who is the Spirit of Truth is come to guide you unto all truth. He speaketh not as prompted by His Own Self, but as bidden by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise." (tbh 12).. "Not of My Own volition have I revealed myself but God, of His Own choosing hath manifested Me." (esw 125).. "The glory of all greatness belongeth to God, the incomparable, the All-Compelling." (gwb 35) (24:12)

IV.B. Baha'u'llah gave up a life of great wealth in the noble class of Persia, and for forty years led a sinless, self-sacrificing life of torture banishment, imprisonment, poisonings, and the abject poverty of His family to bring His Teachings to mankind.
1. Baha'u'llah's will specified: "Earthly treasures We have not bequeathed, nor have We added such cares as they entail." (tbh 219) He had nothing to distribute to His heirs in worldly goods.
2. "We, verily, have come for your sakes, and have borne the misfortunes of the world for your salvation." (tbh 10) (24:13)
