"And this gospel [good news] of the Kingdom [Davidic] shall be proclaimed throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14)
As declared in the Bible by Jesus Christ himself in the gospel of Matthew, the Testimony to the Nations is the gospel of the Kingdom. Gospel means "good news." Kingdom means a king over a domain. Thus Jesus Christ as the Herald of the Kingdom prophesied that the promised day would come when all the nations of the world would hear the message of the good news of the Kingdom of God and then the end (of all suffering, tyranny, injustice, ignorance, war, hatred, prejudice, and bigotry, etc...) would come. If we use our intellects that God gave us to understand this clear promise of Jesus, we will see that without a doubt all of the doctrines, dogmas and creeds preached by the clergy (priestcraft) of ALL the sects and denominations of all the current Christian churches, has most certainly been preached and proclaimed throughout all the world, yet the end of sufferings has not come, but in fact, just the opposite, with the World Wars and terrorism it has increased! Therefore the dogmas of the current Christian churches is the theologies of men and NOT the "good news" (gospel) of the Kingdom, for it were the good news then we would see the end of these sufferings.
Kingdom means a king over a domain. God's king over God's domain on earth is King David and his sons (see Psalms 89). Both Jesus Christ and Baha'u'llah are descended from King David through the male line, but whereas none of Jesus ancestors sat upon the throne of David except David himself, ALL of Baha'u'llah's ancestors sat upon the throne of David. Baha'u'llah's father sat upon the throne of David. His Grandfather sat upon the throne of David, His great grand father sat upon the the throne of David all the way back to David himself in an unbroken father to son genealogy of male sperm descendants of King David seated upon David throne which is to last for ever. Thus this is the GOOD NEWS of the Kingdom, that Baha'u'llah is the second coming of Christ come to save and heal all the world of all its ills and afflictions. NOW, since the 9-11, is this genealogy of Baha'u'llah and this promised GOSPEL of the KINGDOM being proclaimed throughout all the world and now, with the proclamation of this message, when all the world hears this, the end of all suffering will come!
The Genealogy of Baha'u'llah proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Covenant of Baha'u'llah is everlasting and continual. The Covenant states in clear language, through both the Kitab-i-Ahd (Book of the Everlasting Covenant of God) and the sacred Will & Testament of Abdu'l-Baha that the successorship of the Davidic Kings, the Aghsan Presidents of the Universal House of Justice will never come to an end.
"Thou hast said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant: "I will establish your descendants forever, and build your throne for all generations."" (Psalms 89:4)
This is why the Genealogy is so important. It shows how for over three thousand years the lineage of the Throne of David has continued despite the efforts of those who would have it come to an end.
The English word Christ comes from the Greek word Christos which is from the Hebrew word Messiah and means the anointed male-sperm descendant of King David. Jesus was descended from King David, but from Nathan the brother of Solomon and did not sit upon the throne of David, whereas Baha'u'llah, and all His ancestors are seated upon the throne of David which is to last for ever. Baha'u'llah therefore fulfills Bible prophecy for the second coming of Christ, that promised descendant of King David whose message is to appear at the height of a global war and save all mankind from self destruction. This Plan is the Plan of God. The genealogy of Baha'u'llah is the SIGN OF GOD to recognize the true religion of God from out all other false religions of man.
This Genealogy is of the utmost importance as it is the Divine Standard and the Ensign the nations of the world seek as spoken of in the Baha'i writings as well as the Bible. 'Abdu'l-Baha makes reference to these passages:
"In Isaiah chapter 11 verse 1-10 it is said:
"And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord:"
"This rod out of the stem of Jesse might be correctly applied to Christ, for Joseph was of the descendants of Jesse the father of David; but as Christ found existence through the Spirit of God, he called himself the Son of God. If he had not done so, this description would refer to him... But these verses apply word for to Baha'u'llah"
"One of the great events which is to occur in the day of the manifestation of that incomparable Branch, is the hoisting of the Standard of God among all nations; meaning that all nations and tribes will come under the shadow of this Divine Banner, which is no other than the Lordly Branch itself, and will become a single nation. The antagonism of faiths and religions, the hostility of races and peoples, and the national differences, will be eradicated from amongst them. All will become one religion, one faith, one race, and one single people, and will dwell in one native land, which is the terrestrial globe. Universal peace and concord will be realest between all the nations, and that incomparable Branch will gather together all Israel: signifying that in this cycle Israel will be gathered in the Holy Land, and that the Jewish people who are scattered to the East and West, North and South, will be assembled together."
"Now see: these events did not take place in the Christian cycle, for the nations did not come under the One Standard which is the Divine Branch. But in this cycle of the Lord of Hosts all the nations and peoples will enter under the shadow of this Flag." ('Abdu'l-Baha, Some Answered Questions (SAQ), pp. 72-76)
This Flag, this Standard, is the Genealogy of Baha'u'llah, which proves to the world conclusively that Baha'u'llah is indeed that Messiah the world awaits. He is the second coming of Christ that brings the everlasting Kingdom of God on Earth that Jesus told his apostles to pray for.
The Kingdom of God on Earth is just that; a "kingdom", which means a "king over a domain". That king is the continuing descendants of David of which today is the great grandson of 'Abdu'l-Baha who is the heir and distinguished member of the true Universal House of Justice.
The lineage of the Throne of David continues today despite the deceptions, lies and attempts to discredit this unequivocal proof. Over the course of three thousand years this lineage has been preserved and today stands as an Ensign for the nations as that true Universal House of Justice can be distinguished from all the fakes, frauds and imitations by the true, legitimate descendant of David through Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha being at its head.
The ultimate purpose of the Baha'i Faith is to transform the world and its people into a world where wars, oppression, starvation, poverty, disease, sickness, prejudice, enmity and hatred disappear. Where the human race will be like one family and mankind will be a single community, united even as one soul in one body. Universal Peace will envelop the world and disputes, quarrels and murders will be replaced by peace, truth and concord. Paradise on Earth!
"In the day of the manifestation of the Lord of Hosts, and at the epoch of the divine cycle of the Omnipotent which is promised and mentioned in all the books and writings of the prophets -- in that day of God, the Spiritual and Divine Kingdom will be established, and the world will be renewed; a new spirit will be breathed into the body of creation, the season of the divine spring will come, the clouds of mercy will rain, the sun of reality will shine, the life-giving breeze will blow, the world of humanity will wear a new garment, the surface of the earth will be a sublime paradise; mankind will be educated, wars, disputes, quarrels, and malignity will disappear, and truthfulness, righteousness, honesty, and the worship of God will appear; union, love, and brotherhood will surround the world, and God will rule for evermore; meaning that the Spiritual and Everlasting Kingdom [Davidic] will be established. Such is the day of God. For all the days which have come and gone were the days of Abraham, Moses and Christ, or of the other prophets; but this day is the Day of God, for the Sun of Reality will arise in it with the utmost warmth and splendour." (SAQ, pp. 66-67)
But what is the formula that needs to be applied for the world to achieve this goal?
"This House of Justice enacteth the laws and the government enforceth them. The legislative body must reinforce the executive, 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." (Will & Testament of Abdu'l-Baha, p. 15)
The world is transformed into a Paradise on earth through the mechanism of fairness and justice, which can only be achieved through the close union, and harmony of the two forces of the legislative body and the executive head.
There have been three imitations of Baha'u'llah's Universal House of Justice, in the form of the World Court, the League of Nations, and the United Nations Organization. But as none of these had the Davidic King, the descendant of King David as its president, they were not from God and all failed to bring peace to the world.
Another failed attempt is the corrupted and headless so-called "Universal House of Justice" (UHJ) situated on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel which like the other three failed attempts, also does not have the Executive Branch of the descendant of David at its head that this genealogy proves continues to exist to this day. The members of the "Baha'i World Faith, Inc." who have as their supreme body this headless and bogus "UHJ," threw out the Divine Plan for a the Davidic Kingship (which is to last for ever) to be the President of the UHJ in 1957 when the Guardian of the faith, Shoghi Effendi, was martyred and they lied by telling the rest of the Baha'i world that the line of David (called Aghsan) had come to an end, although 'Abdu'l-Baha's son was alive in the world at the time in the United States of America.
They, the "Hands" etc..., went against the explicit instructions of Shoghi Effendi who, in acting as the executor of 'Abdu'l-Baha's Will & Testament, instituted the first International Baha'i Council (IBC) with the descendant of David, the son of 'Abdu'l-Baha at its head. Shoghi Effendi explained in clear, unambiguous language, that this first IBC (body and head) would evolve into a duly recognized Baha'i World Court in the State of Israel by the year 1963, and then, only after this stage of the body's development would it then evolve into the elected stage of the Supreme Tribunal -- where the members would be elected from the various countries -- that is to bring peace to the world.
The appointed head of this body would remain as the distinguished member for life, the descendant of David, with the membership of the body finally efflorescing into the fully elected Universal House of Justice (body and head) when all the nations of the world had National Houses of Justice instituted in them.
The "Hands" of the Cause acting as administrators for Shoghi Effendi during his lifetime, coveting rulership, usurped the position of leaders of the faith, from the first International Baha'i Council, declared the Davidic Kingship of the Aghsan lineage of Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha had ended, and subsequently threw out Shoghi Effendi's 10 Year Plan for the first IBC [Davidic] to evolve into the duly recognized Baha'i World Court by 1963 with the same appointed membership, similar to the Druze Courts Law of 1962, and then evolve into the elected stage of the Supreme Tribunal, thus going against Shoghi Effendi, the unique and infallible guardian of the Cause of God (see W&T, pp. 3, 11).
By going against Shoghi Effendi, and thereby going against God (see W&T, p. 11) these violators in league with the "Hands" by passed the Supreme Tribunal stage jumping to the election of a false "Universal House of Justice," in name only, without the Davidic King as its president. Thus the essential phase and mechanism for bringing peace to the world was by-passed and we have had nothing but the worst and most terrible wars, troubles and terrorism since that time, threatening the people with the terror of thermonuclear holocaust and total annihilation. AS these catastrophes come to pass, the blood of the people is literally on the hands of the "Hands" that threw out the four-stage plan of Shoghi Effendi, by passing the elected body of the Supreme Tribunal, and thereby violating the Covenant of God and dooming the war-torn world to a grim fate of nuclear disaster, escalating over the crisis in the Middle East and the WAR OVER OIL and RELIGION against nations such as Iraq.
These "Hands" of the Cause did not want to be under any authority but that which they could control, so they by passed this 'essential prelude' that Shoghi Effendi had commanded the people to institute, and called for the election of the headless bogus "Universal House" in 1963.
The whole of the Baha'i World have been deceived into believing a lie. They follow a Covenant-breaking administration that has blatantly violated every provision of the Covenant and is now being exposed for what they truly are, Covenant-breakers, of which Baha'u'llah has written: "Terrible indeed is God in punishing." But when the people come back under the provisions of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah then and only then do they receive the forgiveness of sins. Thus the appearance of the true Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah with the great-grandson of 'Abdu'l-Baha as its president, so we can recognize that it is the Authentic and genuine UHJ of Baha'u'llah, is for the safety, security and salvation of all the people of the world. The acceptance of the covenant of the Baha'i Peace Plan by the majority of the peoples will thus alleviate the chronic social illness and spiritual sickness and disease that afflicts all the people of the world -- great and small -- in the forms of poverty, hopeless, war, apathy and despair. This is the medicine of this sick world ! The redemption Christ has promised, as the Herald of the Kingdom, for all the generality of mankind.
The Genealogy of Baha'u'llah, therefore, is of the utmost importance for it is that Ensign to which all must turn and come under the shadow of this Divine Standard of the lineage of the Throne of David, which continues to exist to this day, spoken of all throughout the Bible. The true Universal House of Justice has the descendant of David at its head and by this Standard the world will recognize the Divine Plan of the Revelation of Baha'u'llah and this earth will be made even as Paradise itself.
We stand at the threshold of the greatest of all days, the Kingdom on one side, and the prophesied catastrophe of Biblical proportions upon the other. The whole problem the world faces now at this time comes down to one thing: TRUST. Who can we trust? Can the Russians trust the Americans? Can the Americans trust the Russians? Can the Jews and the Christians trust the Muslims? Can the Muslims trust the Christians and the Jews? Well Jesus told us to LOVE our neighbour, not to trust him. We MUST LOVE our neighbour, but we don't have to love the bad things he does to us. Thus it all comes down to trust.
Well, who can we trust? It tells us on the money who we can trust. It says: "IN GOD WE TRUST." Thus we can put our trust in God. And we can put our trust in the One that God sends to represent Him. And we can trust in the One that God sends to represent Him that He appoints to succeed Him. That's who we can trust.
Today, now that the 6000 year prophetic cycle of Adam has ended, Baha'u'llah fulfills prophecy for the second coming of Christ, and He has written a Covenant with His own Pen appointing His son, 'Abdu'l-Baha to succeed him and delineate that Covenant. Thus the sacred Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha is the Charter for the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in heaven (see World Order of Baha'u'llah, p. 144), and we can put our trust in that. In the sacred W&T, the Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah is appointed as His successor with the descendant of King David as its president, thus making it authentic. As Authenticity is the criteria for believability, we can put our trust in Baha'u'llah's true Universal House of Justice, currently established in the World in its appointed stage.
This is the official website of the Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah, in its appointed stage, the Supreme Institution of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven (see Isaiah 2). It will soon evolve into the elected stage of the Supreme Tribunal, elected by the first four charter nations to accept this plan of God's for peace: of England, France, the United States and Russia, as the majority in those four countries becomes Baha'i, and brings Peace to all the world.
"To disregard, though it be for a moment, this absolute command which is binding upon everyone, [the election of the Supreme Tribunal with the Davidic King as the President for life] is in no wise permitted, that the existent world may become even as the Abha paradise, that the surface of the earth may become heavenly, that contention and conflict amidst peoples, kindreds, nations and governments may disappear, that all the dwellers on earth may become one people and one race, that the world may become even as one home. Should differences arise they shall amicably and conclusively settled by the Supreme Tribunal, that shall include members from all the governments and peoples of the world." W&T, p. 13)
The catastrophe is upon us! The Kingdom (Davidic) is here. Investigate now before it is too late!
