The 9 Manifestations of God

According to Adam and Moses and Krishna, Jesus, Mohammad and Baha’u’llah, there appeared nine manifestations of God to Earth in the past 6000 years. These are the great independent prophets, or “mouthpieces of God” who appeared progressively over time to educate and spiritually edify and ultimately unify all mankind.

I want to share some details of this plan, called “Progressive Revelation.” These are the nine prophets of God and some interesting information about each. I hope you glean from reading and understanding what follows.

Prophecy Campus at Dreamtime in Paonia Colorado

This year, 2008, Dreamtime celebrated her 7th anniversary. Dreamtime is a uniquely Colorado festival in Paonia.

After the Rainbow Gathering, I got a hold of the management at Dreamtime and they scholarshipped us for a “Prophecy Campus” at Dreamtime 2008. The timing was sweet and no one can say there isn’t spontanaety at Dreamtime. This festival is small but real sweet. Victor and Josiah joined me, and together we built a little shanty shelter and set up a stove and a lantern and that big orange tent. It was windy in the am but the fort was strong and held up to all weather.

We were listed in the Dreamtime schedule booklet for three talks. We actually did five talks. Read the rest of this entry »

Tribulation Study Matthew 24

A guest has asked for an interpretation of the Tribulation Bible verse in Matthew in the Gospel?

I’ve been travelling and there has been some comment discussion as I had already asked before I departed for travel, what others thought the verse means. Finally, I am getting to this. Thank you for your patience, I will annotate my answers in <> as I edit this original post. ‘Abd’ul-Baha said there are 72 two meanings to every verse. This is what I believe the tribulation verses mean. I’ll start with the verses, then explain them:

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:29-31

Immediately after the tribulation <Tribulation is same as a test or oppression> Read the rest of this entry »

Bahai Hands Of The Cause

I was milling through some stuff that I thought was lost after my last move and I found this article I wrote back in 1995. It is pretty good stuff and really, really digs into the authority, or lack there, of the Hands of the Cause under the guardianship of Shoghi Effendi.

I hope you enjoy the read. Feel free to talk about it in the blog thread also. Here is the link to:
The Authority Of The Hands.

Peace

Two Messiahs

Messiah ben Joseph and Messiah ben David

The Bible says that there would be two Messiahs.

The definition of the word “Messiah” is: An Anointed Male Lineal Descendant of King David.

In Judaism, these two Messiahs are titled “Messiah ben David” and “Messiah ben Joseph.” Ask any Rabbi.

The first one Read the rest of this entry »

Amit Abha Fifth Buddha Bahaullah

AMIT-ABHA
A guest has requested a discussion about Amit-Abha. Baha’is understand that Amit Abha is Baha’u’llah, as he wore the red robe, and as He is the 5th Manifestation of God after Gautama (Sanskrit; Pali: Gotama), Siddhartha (Sanskrit; Pali: Siddhattha). “Amit” means “Infinite” and “Abha” means “Light” or “Glory.” Baha’u’llah’s Revelation comes directly from God (the Infinite Absolute One), as it did for Jesus and Moses and Mohammed and Zoroaster and Krishna and Buddha and Adam and the Bab.

Baha’i Faith Writings Category Added

I have added a category for Baha’i Faith writings. There are two works added to start with. They are Baha’u’llah’s Kitab-i-Ahd, and the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha. Together, these two documents comprise the Covenant of the Baha’i Faith. You can navigate to the Baha’i Writings page from the link to your left or click on this link to access the Baha’i Faith writings new hub page.

Easter? Happy Resurrection Day

I was talking with a Christian today and she said she was celebrating Easter with her family. I asked if she was going on an Easter egg hunt. She said yes and asked If I was also?

I said I hadn’t since I was a child.

I mean why celebrate 5000 year old holiday with eggs and rabbits, which are both symbols of fertility worship and all on a day that is named after Ishtar, the pagan goddess of fertility?

I bid her a good day and pulled out my Bible to read about the resurrection. Read the rest of this entry »

Angels, Cherubs, and Seraphs

In the firesides we learn that Angels, Cherubs, and Seraphs are spiritual stations we can attain while in this life, and not divine beings from heaven wandering among us as is commonly perceived. One time at a forum Dr. Jensen elaborated upon this when the subject came up regarding Isaiah’s reference to Seraphim. Read the rest of this entry »

The Influence of the Greek Philosophy and Religion upon Christianity

The Resultant Affect upon the Harmony of the Three Abrahamic Faiths

by Nefratiri Weeks
October 26, 2007
Scholars and historians agree that the blending of Greek culture with Christianity eventually resulted in our modern understanding of Christianity as a religion; textbooks paint the picture of its great Hebrew Roots being planted in Greek Soil, creating the tree we see today in every American City and across the world. However, some scholars assert that while Greek rational thought had a positive influence on Christianity, Greek religious practices at that time had no influence. I will demonstrate that, to the contrary, many Greek religious practices are alive and well in the Christian Church and discuss the deeper implications of this fact on the global situation of religious division.In his Summa Theologica, Thomas Aquinas, one of the great reasoning minds of the late Middle Ages, set forth the argument that the subject matter of religious doctrine, belief and faith was to be rightly considered a science. He set this science higher than the science of empirical thought with subject matter including mathematics and the like. Aquinas opened the door of religious speculation that had been closed by the Church for more than a thousand years. In his treatise concerning religious belief he concludes:

“As other sciences do not argue in proof of their principles, but argue from their principles to demonstrate other truths in these sciences: so this doctrine does not argue in proof of its principles, which are the articles of faith, but from them it goes on to prove something else…” (Aquinas).
