MESSAGES GIVEN TO THE CHRISTIANS

The following presentation contains important messages that were given to the Christians by God's new Manifestation, by His new Messenger. They were given to humanity in 1863, many years after the beginning of the Aquarius age that began on the 23 of May in 1844. Thus, it may honestly be labelled the Aquarius Revelation.

* All glory be to this Day, the Day in which the fragrances of mercy have been wafted over all created things, a Day so blessed that past ages and centuries can never hope to rival it, a Day in which the countenance of the Ancient of Days has turned towards His holy seat. Thereupon the voices of all created things, and beyond them those of the Concourse on High, were heard calling aloud : Haste, O Carmel, for lo, the light of the countenance of God, the Ruler of the Kingdom of Names and fashioner of the heavens, has been lifted upon you.

* Seized with transports of joy, and raising high her voice, she thus exclaimed : "May my life be a sacrifice to you, inasmuch as you have fixed your gaze upon me, has bestowed upon me Your bounty, and has directed towards me your steps. Separation from You, O Source of everlasting life, has well near consumed me, and my remoteness from Your presence has burned away my soul. All praise be to You for having enabled me to hearken to Your call, for having honoured me with Your footsteps, and for having quickened my soul through the vitalizing fragrance of Your Day and the shrilling voice of Your Pen, a voice You did ordain as Your trumpet-call amidst Your people. And when the hour at which Your resistless Faith was to be made manifest did strike, You did breathe a breath of Your spirit into Your Pen, and lo, the entire creation shook to its very foundations, unveiling to mankind such mysteries as lay hidden within the treasuries of Him Who is the Possessor of all created things."

No sooner had her voice reached that most exalted Spot than We made reply : *Render thanks unto your Lord, O Carmel.

The fire of your separation from Me was fast consuming you, when the ocean of My presence surged before your face, cheering your eyes and those of all creation, and filling with delight all things visible and invisible. Rejoice, for God has in this Day established upon you His throne, has made you the dawning-place of His signs and the dayspring of the evidences of His Revelation. Well is it with him that circles around you, that proclaims the revelation of your glory, and recounts that which the bounty of the Lord your God has showered upon you. Seize you the Chalice of Immortality in the name of your Lord, the All-Glorious, and give thanks unto Him, inasmuch as He, in token of His mercy unto you, has turned your sorrow into gladness, and transmuted your grief into blissful joy. He, verily, loves the spot which has been made the seat of His throne, which His footsteps have trodden, which has been honoured by His presence, from which He raised His call, and upon which He shed His tears.

* Call out to Zion, O Carmel, and announce the joyful tidings: He that was hidden from mortal eyes is come! His all-conquering sovereignty is manifest ; His all-encompassing splendour is revealed. Beware lest you hesitate or halt. Hasten forth and circumambulate the City of God that has descended from heaven, the celestial Kaaba (sanctuary) round which have circled in adoration the favoured of God, the pure in heart, and the company of the most exalted angels. Oh, how I long to announce unto every spot on the surface of the earth, and to carry to each one of its cities, the glad-tidings of this Revelation - a Revelation to which the heart of Sinai has been attracted, and in whose name the Burning Bush is calling : "Unto God, the Lord of Lords, belong the kingdoms of earth and heaven."

Verily this is the Day in which both land and sea rejoice at this announcement, the Day for which have been laid up those things which God, through a bounty beyond the ken of mortal mind or heart, has destined for revelation. Before long will God sail His (crimson) Ark upon you, and will manifest the people of Baha who have been mentioned in the Book of Names.

* Sanctified be the Lord of all mankind, at the mention of Whose name all the atoms of the earth have been made to vibrate, and the Tongue of Grandeur has been moved to disclose that which had been wrapt in His knowledge and lay concealed within the treasury of His might. He, verily, through the potency of His name, the Mighty, the All-Powerful, the Most High, is the ruler of all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth.

* TABLET OF CARMEL - THE MOST HOLY TABLET

* This is the Most Holy Tablet sent down from the holy kingdom unto the one who has set his face towards the Object of the adoration of the world, He Who has come from the heaven of eternity, invested with transcendent glory.

* In the name of the Lord, the Lord of great glory. * This is an Epistle from Our presence unto him whom the veils of names have failed to keep back from God, the Creator of earth and heaven, that his eyes may be cheered in the days of his Lord, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

* Say, O followers of the Son! [Jesus] Have you shut out yourselves from Me by reason of My Name? Wherefore ponder not in your hearts? Day and night you have been calling upon your Lord, the Omnipotent, but when He came from the heaven of eternity in His great glory, you turned aside from Him and remained sunk in heedlessness.

Consider those who rejected the Spirit [Jesus] when He came unto them with manifest dominion. How numerous the Pharisees who had secluded themselves in synagogues in His name, lamenting over their separation from Him, and yet when the portals of reunion were flung open and the divine Luminary shone resplendent from the Dayspring of Beauty, they disbelieved in God, the Exalted, the Mighty. They failed to attain His presence, notwithstanding that His advent had been promised them in the Book of Isaiah as well as in the Books of the Prophets and the Messengers. No one from among them turned his face towards the Dayspring of divine bounty except such as were destitute of any power amongst men. And yet, today, every man endowed with power and invested with sovereignty prides himself on His Name. Moreover, call to mind the one who sentenced Jesus to death. He was the most learned of his age in his own country, while he who was only a fisherman believed in Him. Take good heed and be of them that observe the warning.

Consider likewise, how numerous at this time are the monks who have secluded themselves in their churches, calling upon the Spirit, but when He appeared through the power of Truth, they failed to draw near unto Him and are numbered with those that have gone far astray. Happy are they that have abandoned them and set their faces towards Him Who is the Desire of all that are in the heavens and all that are on the earth.

They read the Evangel and yet refuse to acknowledge the All-Glorious Lord, notwithstanding that He has come through the potency of His exalted, His mighty and gracious dominion. We, verily, have come for your sakes, and have borne the misfortunes of the world for your salvation. Flee the One Who has sacrificed His life that you may be quickened? Fear God, O followers of the Spirit, and walk not in the footsteps of every divine that has gone far astray. Do you imagine that He seeks His own interests, when He has, at all times, been threatened by the swords of the enemies ; or that He seeks the vanities of the world, after He has been imprisoned in the most desolate of cities? Be fair in your judgement and follow not the footsteps of the unjust.

Open the doors of your hearts. He Who is the Spirit verily stands before them. Wherefore banish Him Who has purposed to draw you near unto a Resplendent Spot? Say : We, in truth, have opened unto you the gates of the Kingdom. Will you bar the doors of your houses in My face? This indeed is nothing but a grievous error. He, verily, has again come down from heaven, even as He came down from it the first time. Beware lest you dispute that which He proclaims, even as the people before you disputed His utterances. Thus instructs you the True One, could you but perceive it.

The river Jordan is joined to the Most Great Ocean, and the Son, in the holy vale, cried out : "Here am I, here am I O Lord, my God!", while Sinai circles round the House, and the Burning Bush calls aloud :

"He Who is the Desired One is come in is transcendent majesty." Say, Lo! The Father is come, and that which you were promised in the Kingdom is fulfilled! This is the Word which the Son concealed, when to those around Him He said : "You cannot bear it now." And when the appointed time was fulfilled and the Hour had struck, the Word shone forth above the horizon of the Will of God. Beware, O followers of the Son, that you cast it not behind your backs. Take fast hold of it. Better is this for you than all that you possess. Verily He is near unto them that do good. The Hour which We had concealed from the knowledge of the peoples of the earth and of the favoured angels has come to pass. Say, verily, He has testified of Me, and I do testify of Him. Indeed, He has purposed no one other than Me. Unto this bears witness every fair-minded and understanding soul.

Though beset with countless afflictions, We summon the people unto God, the Lord of names. Say, strive to attain that which you have been promised in the Books of God, and walk not in the way of the ignorant. My body has endured imprisonment that you may be released from the bondage of self. Set your faces then towards His countenance and follow not the footsteps of every hostile oppressor. Verily, He has consented to be sorely abased that you may attain unto glory, and yet, you are disporting yourselves in the vale of heedlessness. He, in truth, lives in the most desolate of abodes for your sakes, while you dwell in your palaces.

Say, did you not hearken to the Voice of the Crier, calling aloud in the wilderness of the Bayan, bearing unto you the glad-tidings of the coming of your Lord, the All-Merciful? Lo! He is come in the sheltering shadow of Testimony, invested with conclusive proof and evidence, and those who truly believe in Him regard His presence as the embodiment of the Kingdom of God. Blessed is the man who turns towards Him, and woe betide such as deny or doubt Him.

Announce unto the priests : Lo! He Who is the Ruler is come. Step out from behind the veil in the name of your Lord, He Who lays low the necks of all men. Proclaim then unto all mankind the glad-tidings of this mighty, this glorious Revelation. Verily, He Who is the Spirit of Truth is come to guide you unto all truth. He speaks not as prompted by His own self, but as bidden by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Say, this is the One Who has glorified the Son and has exalted His Cause. Cast away, O peoples of the earth, that which you have and take fast hold of that which you are bidden by the All-Powerful, He Who is the Bearer of the Trust of God. Purge your ears and set your hearts towards Him that you may hearken to the most wondrous Call which has been raised from Sinai, the habitation of your Lord, the Most Glorious. It will, in truth, draw you near unto the Spot wherein you will perceive the splendour of the light of His countenance which shines above this luminous Horizon.

O concourse of priests! Leave the bells, and come forth, then, from your churches. It behoves you, in this day, to proclaim aloud the Most Great Name among the nations. Do you prefer to be silent, while every stone and every tree shouts aloud : `The Lord is come in His great glory!'? Well is it with the man who hastens unto Him. Verily, he is numbered among them whose names will be eternally recorded and who will be mentioned by the Concourse on High. Thus has it been decreed by the Spirit in this wondrous Tablet. He that summons men in My name is, verily, of Me, and he will show forth that which is beyond the power of all that are on earth. Follow the Way of the Lord and walk not in the footsteps of them that are sunk in heedlessness. Well is it with the slumberer who is stirred by the Breeze of God and arises from amongst the (spiritually) dead, directing his steps towards the Way of the Lord. Verily, such a man is regarded, in the sight of God, the True One, as a jewel amongst men and is reckoned with the blissful.

Say : In the East the light of His Revelation has broken; in the West have appeared the signs of His dominion. Ponder this in your hearts, O people, and be not of those who have turned a deaf ear to the admonitions of Him Who is the Almighty, the All-Praised. Let the Breeze of God awaken you. Verily, it has wafted over the world. Well is it with him that has discovered the fragrance thereof and been accounted among the well-assured.

O concourse of bishops! You are the stars of the heaven of My knowledge. My mercy desires not that you should fall upon the earth. My justice, however, declares :

"This is that which the Son has decreed." And whatsoever has proceeded out of His blameless, His truth-speaking, trustworthy mouth, can never be altered. The bells, verily, peal out My Name, and lament over Me, but My spirit rejoices with evident gladness. The body of the Loved One yearns for the cross, and His head is eager for the spear, in the path of the All-Merciful.

Note : The paragraph that says, "the loved One yearns for the cross and the spear" is a reference to the prophet Zoroaster who died on a cross and whose life was ended by a spear blow to the head. The returned Christ's Spirit was the return of the Spirit of the prophet Zoroaster. In other words, there is no doubt that the above saying is the proof that the Spirit essence of Baha'u'llah was the "return" of the Spirit essence of the prophet Zoroaster. Keep in mind the fact that both of them were animated by the Holy Spirit of God who told them what to say. So when we speak about the return of Christ, we are speaking about the return of the Holy Spirit who spoke to the world through all of God's prophets since the beginning of Creation.

The ascendancy of the oppressor can in no wise deter Him from His purpose. We have summoned all created things to attain the presence of your Lord, the King of all names. Blessed is the man that has set his face towards God, the Lord of the Day of Reckoning.

O concourse of monks! If you choose to follow Me, I will make you heirs of My Kingdom; and if you transgress against Me, I will, in My long-suffering, endure it patiently, and I, verily, am the Ever-Forgiving, the All-Merciful.

O land of Syria! What has become of your righteousness? You are, in truth, ennobled by the footsteps of your Lord. Have you perceived the fragrance of heavenly reunion, or are you to be accounted of the heedless?

Bethlehem is astir with the Breeze of God. We hear her voice saying:"O most generous Lord! Where is Your great glory established? The sweet savours of Your presence have quickened me, after I had melted in my separation from You. Praised be in that You have raised the veils, and come with power in evident glory." We called unto her from behind the Tabernacle of Majesty and Grandeur:

"O Bethlehem! This Light has risen in the orient, and travelled towards the occident, until it reached you in the evening of its life. Tell Me then : Do the sons recognize the Father, and acknowledge Him, or do they deny Him, even as the people before time denied Him (Jesus)" Whereupon she cried out saying: "You are, in truth, the All-Knowing, the Best-Informed." Verily, We behold all created things moved to bear witness unto Us. Some know Us and bear witness, while the majority bear witness, yet know Us not.

Mount Sinai is astir with the joy of beholding Our countenance. She has lifted her enthralling voice in glorification of her Lord, saying :

"O Lord! I sense the fragrance of Your garment. I think that You are near, invested with the signs of God. You have ennobled these regions with Your footsteps. Great is the blessedness of Your people, could they but know You and inhale Your sweet savours; and woe betide them that are fast asleep."

Happy are you who has turned your face towards My countenance, inasmuch as you have rent the veils asunder, have shattered the idols and recognized your eternal Lord. The people of the Koran have risen up against Us without any clear proof or evidence, tormenting Us at every moment with a fresh torment. They idly imagine that tribulations can frustrate Our Purpose. Vain indeed is that which they have imagined. Verily, your Lord is the One Who ordains whatsoever He pleases.

I never passed a tree but My heart addressed it saying: "O would that you were cut down in My name, and My body crucified upon you." We revealed this passage in the Epistle to the Shah that it might serve as a warning to the followers of religions. Verily, your Lord is the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Let not the things they have perpetrated grieve you. Truly they are even as dead, and not living (spiritually). Leave them unto the dead (unto those who are spiritually dead), then turn your face towards Him Who is the Life-Giver of the world. Beware lest the sayings of the heedless sadden you. Be steadfast in the Cause, and teach the people with consummate wisdom. Thus enjoins the Ruler of earth and heaven. He is in truth the Almighty, the Most Generous. Before long will God exalt your remembrance and will inscribe with the Pen of Glory that which you did utter for the sake of His love. He is in truth the Protector of the doers of good.

Give My remembrance to the one named Murad and say : "Blessed are you, O Murad, inasmuch as you did cast away the prompting of your own desire and has followed Him Who is the Desire of all mankind."

Say : Blessed the slumberer who is awakened by My Breeze.

Blessed the lifeless one who is quickened through My reviving breaths.

Blessed the eye that is solaced by gazing at My beauty.

Blessed the wayfarer who directs his steps towards the Tabernacle of My glory and majesty.

Blessed the distressed one who seeks refuge beneath the shadow of My canopy.

Blessed the sore athirst who hastens to the soft-flowing waters of My loving-kindness.

Blessed the insatiate soul who casts away his selfish desires for love of Me and takes his place at the banquet table which I have sent down from the heaven of divine bounty for My chosen ones.

Blessed the abased one who lays fast hold on the cord of My glory; and the needy one who enters beneath the shadow of the Tabernacle of My wealth.

Blessed the ignorant one who seeks the fountain of My knowledge; and the heedless one who cleaves to the cord of My remembrance.

Blessed the soul that has been raised to life through My quickening breath and has gained admittance into My heavenly Kingdom.

Blessed the man whom the sweet savours of reunion with Me have stirred and caused to draw near unto the Dayspring of My Revelation.

Blessed the ear that has heard and the tongue that has borne witness and the eye that has seen and recognized the Lord Himself, in His great glory and majesty, invested with grandeur and dominion.

Blessed are they that have attained His presence.

Blessed the man who has sought enlightenment from the Day-Star of My Word.

Blessed he who has attired his head with the diadem of My love.

Blessed is he who has heard of My grief and has arisen to aid Me among My people.

Blessed is he who has laid down his life in My path and has borne manifold hardships for the sake of My Name.

Blessed the man who, assured of My Word, has arisen from among the dead to celebrate My praise.

Blessed is he that has been enraptured by My wondrous melodies and has rent the veils asunder through the potency of My might.

Blessed is he who has remained faithful to My Covenant, and whom the things of the world have not kept back from attaining My Court of holiness.

Blessed is the man who has detached himself from all else but Me, has soared in the atmosphere of My love, has gained admittance into My Kingdom, gazed upon My realms of glory, quaffed the living waters of My bounty, has drunk his fill from the heavenly river of My loving providence, acquainted himself with My Cause, apprehended that which I concealed within the treasury of My Words, and has shone forth from the horizon of divine knowledge engaged in My praise and glorification. Verily, he is of Me. Upon him rest My mercy, My loving-kindness, My bounty and My glory.

If this is a new sermon, it most certainly surpasses the old one, does it not? We must not forget that it was given to mankind by the greatest Manifestation that God has ever sent to us. So that is the reason why the new message is much more appropriate and more beautiful than the original one which is 2 000 years old. It is a befitting message from God for the new age in which we live in, the age of Aquarius.

It was taken from the writings of the returned Christ's own hand which He gave to the world in this new Revelation.

The following presentation will give you a brief history of Mount Carmel, the Holy Mountain located in the Holy Land. That Holy mountain is mentioned by the prophet Isaiah in his writings.


The new Mount Carmel, God's Holy mountain

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. ISAIAH 2 : 2

* If Carmel's stones could speak, they would tell tales of miracles, victories, and defeats, describe the tread of prophets and pagans, princes, and paupers, and whisper in quiet reverence of God's destiny for this majestic mountain. Mount Carmel, held sacred by Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Baha'i's alike, has been at the crossroads of human history for as long as humankind has record. Cro-Magnon skeletons were found in caves hollowed out of the limestone walls. Pythagoras stayed in these hills on his way to Egypt; the prophet Elijah made his home in two of Carmel's caves; Jesus' family is said to have paused here on their way back from Egypt ; and the Crusaders made pilgrimage to this holy mountain in 1150 CE. Druze settled here in the sixteenth century, coming from Lebanon ; in 1868 the German Templers built a colony of sturdy brick homes at the base; and in 1891 Baha'u'llah (the name of the returned Christ) pitched His tent at the base of the mountain, making it a holy place for Baha'is' of the world.

* Carmel's sacred nature is noted as early as the middle of the second millennium BCE in a list of places conquered by Egyptian King Thothmes III. The mountain is referred to as "the sacred promontory." In the fourth century CE, neo-Platonic philosopher Iamblicus described Carmel as "sacred above all mountains and forbidden of access to the vulgar." Indeed, all the military campaigns of Syrian and Israeli history have treated this mountain as a place to be avoided, sweeping past on either side on the way to or from battle.

It is perhaps the story of Elijah with which we are most familiar. Elijah, who lived in the mid-ninth century BCE during the reign of Ahab and his successor Ahaziah, fought the Baal priests in order to maintain the integrity of monotheistic Judaism. As recounted in 1 Kings 18, Elijah called all the peoples of Israel to gather on Mount Carmel at a site on its eastern face. This group included the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets who served Queen Jezebel. Elijah asked them to choose who they worshipped, either God or Baal. As the crowd was silent, Elijah called for two bulls to be brought to him. He asked the Baal prophets to choose one, butcher it, build an altar for it, and call upon Baal to light the fire for the sacrifice. The priests prayed, appealed, and danced to no avail. Then Elijah built his altar and prepared his sacrifice, asking that water be poured onto the mound until the trench he had dug around it was filled. In the Bible account, Elijah prayed to God, asking Him to prove to the people that there is only one God. God caused the sacrifice to burn until even the water was evaporated. The Bible has recorded that all the false prophets, 850 of them, were put to death by the Jewish people themselves as ordered by Elijah.

Note : Have you noticed that it did not say that the story was completely true. It is written that the bible has recorded the story. As we previously discovered all biblical writings are not truthful because some paragraphs have been re-written. Therefore, we have no choice but to say that the story may not be completely true. Elijah was said to have killed all of the false prophets of Baal. How can anyone possibly kill 850 people in one day? The prophets of God do not kill people, they never have and they never will. I strongly suspect that some of those facts may have been added in to scriptures by the Jewish writers or scholars. I strongly believe that the Jewish people themselves slaughtered all of the false prophets, 850 of them. They had been enforced, by those false prophets, to sacrifice all of their first born on the altars of the false god's. The Jewish people were sick at having to see all of those killings, especially that of their own children. Can you see why God decided to act by telling the Jewish people through the prophet Elijah that they must rid themselves of all of those false prophets who were the murderers of their children.

* Elijah is reported to have lived in two caves during his time on Mount Carmel, one of which is at the crest of the hill and is sheltered by the Carmelite monastery. The lower cave is directly below, at the base of the mountain. These two caves have had religious uses since early times. The upper chapel became either a mosque or maq'm (small shrine) during the Arab period, when a mihrab, or a prayer niche facing Mecca, was added, in 1226 CE. Crusaders received permission from Rome to form what is now the Carmelite Order. The first institution of Carmelite nuns was founded in 1452. In 1826 the monastery was rebuilt at this ancient site on Mount Carmel, where it stands today.

* Others from Europe were enticed to settle on Carmel's fertile plains. In the mid-1800s Christoph Hoffmann, George David Hardegg, and Christoph Paulus founded the Temple Society in Germany. Their dream was to establish communities that would realise the idea of creating God's kingdom on earth. Hoffmann and Hardegg arrived in Haifa in 1868, leading an influx of families that settled in Haifa and Jaffa between 1868 and 1875. Settlements grew and expanded to Bethlehem, the Galilee, and areas surrounding Haifa. Some of these hard-working Templers built their homes and farms at the base of Mount Carmel, along what is now Ben Gurion Avenue in Haifa. There they carved religious quotations into the lintels above their doorways and awaited the return of Christ.

* The north face of the mountain began to change from that time. The catalyst for this transformation was Baha'u'llah, Who, during an afternoon in 1891, pointed out to His eldest son, Abdu'l-Baha, the spot that should serve as the permanent resting-place for the remains of the Bab (meaning the Door), His martyred Forerunner. Following these instructions, Abdu'l-Baha erected the initial structure of the mausoleum and interred the remains of the Bab there in 1909. The ornamental superstructure, which makes this Shrine one of Haifa's best known landmarks, was constructed between 1949 and 1953 under the supervision of Abdu'l-Baha's grandson and head of the Faith at that time, Shoghi Effendi, who developed the extensive formal gardens. The Shrine sits at the center of the mountain's north face with the cave of Elijah to the west and the hills of the Galilee to the east. The plains of Sharon lie to the south, and the Shrine faces the ancient city of Acre and the Tomb of Baha'u'llah, across the bay, overshadowing the Templer colony.

* Now, after many years of construction, magnificent Terraces ascend this once barren face, embrace the Shrine like a jewel, and transform Carmel for all time. The mountain has come full circle, from the fertile, forested mountain known to the ancient Hebrews as a symbol of fruitfulness and prosperity, to a dry, rocky landscape caused by mass deforestation during the Ottoman occupation, to terraced gardens and informal landscaping that recall and amplify Carmel's former beauty. Once again, she embodies her Hebrew name "kerem," meaning vineyard or fruitful garden.

It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing : the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God. ISAIAH 35 : 2

The Following presentation brings forward many of the writings of the returned Christ addressed to various rulers of the world. It is called :

The proclamation of the returned Christ
