Hello Friends, Readers, and New Ones,
In the previous blog, we spoke of two ‘Bearers of the Holy Spirit’ which Christ told us would follow Him. Not with His name, but with new names and faces. They would speak that which was given them, as Christ had, Himself; but not with His lips.
He referred to the Comforter (sometimes the “Friend”) and to the Spirit of Truth. The revelation following Christ was that of Mohammad also referred to as “the Friend of God”; The Spirit of Truth would refer to Baha’ullah, the Glory of God, who would judge the peoples of the earth.
Baha’ullah would, as in the example Christ gave for Himself, come by way of the Door or Gate; which refers in this case, to the “Gate” known as the “Bab”
“I will come again in Glory to judge the living and the dead.”
Christ wasn’t alone in foretelling the Bearers of the Holy Spirit. Below is a gem of grace provided to us by Moses…
Deuteronomy Chapter 33 ~ From the Holy Bible ~ New King James version
1. Now, this is the blessing with which Moses blessed the children of Israel before His death.
2 And He said: “The Lord came from Sinai, and dawned on them from Seir; He shone forth from Mt. Paran, and He came with ten thousands of saints; from His right hand came a fiery law for them.” (Sometimes a “fiery sword”)
One of the things I love about this passage is that Moses refers to Himself and the future Bearers of the Holy Spirit in the past tense. It lets us know how great and endless, is the embrace of His vision.
Moses was in Egypt, then the Sinai Peninsula
Seir lies between Sinai and Iraq. The Seir Mountains of Edom, and here refers to Jesus the Christ
Mt. Paran east side of the Red Sea, in Arabia, and refers to Mohammed
The One known as the Gate, or Bab, died with many thousands of His followers, in just a few years of His independent Revelation, in Iran.
The Glory of God, known as Baha’ullah has come with Judgement and Justice to unite all of God’s earth. He calls for the end of the extremes of poverty and wealth so that we can live in lasting peace, rather than desperation.
Let me know your meditations on this. Next time, we can look at the relationship between the Prophets as they edify the bearer of the Holy Spirit, which came before them.
