THE COMING NEW WORLD RELIGION
Bahá'u'lláh announced to the few remaining followers of the Bab that He was the chosen Manifestation of God for this age. He called upon people to unite; He said that only in one common faith and one order could the world find an enduring peace. He declared that terrible wars would sweep the face of the earth and destroy the institutions and ideas that keep men from their rightful unity. (Basics of Bahai faith tract)
The Bahi religion fit perfectly with what Jesus warned of, especially in his Sermon on the Mount. Bahai belive that we need to unite with all the religions of the world to have a world government and peace. The also tecah that Bahá'u'lláh is the second coming of Christ to the earth. (which fulfills Mt.24 where Jesus warne many will say they are Christ ands claim to represent him.)
OVER 1,800 YEARS BEFORE Bahá'u'lláh came Jesus not only promised this, but did this. The faith has been delivered to all the saints once for all. The order is still future, as we await Christ to come back and fulfill His promise just as He has with all the others.
And were any of them to voice the utterance, "I am the Messenger of God,' He, also, speaketh the truth, the indubitable truth.... Viewed in this light, they are all but Messengers of that ideal King, that unchangeable Essence."(Gleanings p.50-55) their view means there are no false prophets. Actually they have no way to measure if one speaks truth or falsehood. Since their basis for truth is to unite and be tolerant.
Jesus did not condone any other religion, but Bahá'í says they are all from the same God.“Likewise, the divine religions of the holy Manifestations of God are in reality one, though in name and nomenclature they differ.”… The strife between religions, nations and races arises from misunderstanding. If we investigate the religions to discover the principles underlying their foundations, we will find they agree; for the fundamental reality of them is one and not multiple. By this means the religionists of the world will reach their point of unity and reconciliation. They will ascertain the truth that the purpose of religion is the acquisition of praiseworthy virtues, the betterment of morals, the spiritual development of mankind, the real life and divine bestowals” (`Abdu'lBaha: Promulgation of Universal Peace, pp. 151-152)
Eph. 1:19-22 "and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church."
The Bible tells us they are wrong, Christ is above all in all ages not just for his time.
To the Peoples of the World: "The Great Peace towards which people of good will throughout the centuries have inclined their hearts, of which seers and poets for countless generations have expressed their vision, and for which from age to age the sacred scriptures of mankind have constantly held the promise, is now at long last within the reach of the nations. For the first time in history it is possible for everyone to view the entire planet, with all its myriad diversified peoples, in one perspective. World peace is not only possible but inevitable. It is the next stage in the evolution of this planet -- in the words of one great thinker, "the planetization of mankind". ( A Statement by the Universal House of Justice Bahá'í World Center Haifa, Israel, Oct. 1985 )
"The world is in greatest need of international peace. Until it is established, mankind will not attain composure and tranquility. It is necessary that the nations and governments organize an international tribunal to which all their disputes and differences shall be referred. The decision of that tribunal shall be final." (Abdu'l-Bahá, Promulgation of Universal Peace, Bahá'í Publishing Trust, 1982, p. 301.)
Clearly a one world government is not the answer when sinful men seek their own wants. While it is a wonderful gesture on paper, reality is quite different. Real peace will come when the Prince of Peace rules over the earth by setting up his kingdom.
"Baháulláh exhorted the rulers of the earth to peace and international agreement, making it incumbent upon them to establish a board of international arbitration; that from all nations and governments of the world there should be delegates selected for a congress of nations which should constitute a universal arbitral court of justice to settle international disputes". (Abdu'l-Bahá, Promulgation of Universal Peace, Bahá'í Publishing Trust, 1982, p. 203.)
If I didn't know better I would think they were referring to the UN. They are! As they work with the UN toward their religious agenda of unity for all people,they want to see a universal system of education, a universal code of human rights, and a universal system of currency, weights and measures. This all sounds like it is right out of the Bible, Revelation 13.
Bahá'u'lláh made the oneness of humankind the central principle and goal of His Faith. When the organic and spiritual unity of the nations it signals the "coming of age of the entire human race." (Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day Is Come, p. 117 1980)
"One God has given men one Faith through progressive revelations of His Will in each age of history and Bahá'u'lláh reveals the will of God for men and women of the present age. This basic belief enables Bahais to unite and work together in spite of different religious backgrounds."( BAHAI PUBLISHING TRUST WILMETTE, ILLINOIS)
He (Bahá'u'lláh) sets forth a new principle for this day in the announcement that religion must be the cause of unity, harmony and agreement among mankind. If it be the cause of discord and hostility, if it leads to separation and creates conflict, the absence of religion would be preferable in the world."( Abdu'l-Bahá, Bahá'í World Faith: Selected Writings of Bahá'u'lláh and `Abdu'l-Bahá, Bahá'í Publishing Trust, 1976. p. 247.)
It's hard to take someone seriously who wants to unite all religions and then says the one that is not cooperative with the others would be better off gone. Any one religion can be implemented as a unifying principle for mankind and we would have that harmony they seek, even if the religion was false. If all religions are from the same God and there are disagreements (of which there are many) than whose to say that one is to go. I wonder which one this would be? Who decides? I won't leave you guessing, the only ones that would not co-operate with this type of surrender into milk toast would be Christians. Why? Because we believe there is absolute truth and there is falsehood. If we stand to our convictions we can't compromise what Christ taught.
Their solution is the elimination of extremes of both Wealth and Poverty. "Through the manifestation of God's great equity the poor of the world will be rewarded and assisted fully and there will be a readjustment in the economic conditions of mankind so that in the future there will not be the abnormally rich nor the abject poor. The rich will enjoy the privilege of this new economic condition as well as the poor, for owing to certain provisions and restrictions they will not be able to accumulate so much as to be burdened by its management, while the poor will be relieved from the stress of want and misery. The rich will enjoy his palace, and the poor will have his comfortable cottage. " (Abdu'l-Bahá, Promulgation of Universal Peace, Bahá'í Publishing Trust, 1982, p. 132)
This sounds very much like a New Age communism just a bit more flexible. While we want to see the needs of the poor be provided for, to make it a law through their one world government is another story.
"They must conclude a binding treaty and establish a covenant, the provisions of which shall be sound, inviolable and definite. They must proclaim it to all the world and obtain for it the sanction of all the human race... All the forces of humanity must be mobilized to ensure the stability and permanence of this Most Great Covenant. In this all-embracing Pact the limits and frontiers of each and every nation should be clearly fixed, the principles underlying the relations of governments towards one another definitely laid down,.... In like manner, the size of armaments of every government should be strictly limited, for if the preparations for war and the military forces of any nation should be allowed to increase, they will arouse the suspicion of others. The fundamental principle underlying this solemn Pact should be so fixed that if any government later violate any one of its provisions, all the governments on earth should arise to reduce to utter submission, nay the human race as a whole should resolve, with every power at its disposal, to destroy that government. Should this greatest of all remedies be applied to the sick body of the world, it will assuredly recover from its ills and will remain eternally safe and secure. (Abdu'l-Bahá, The Secret of Divine Civilization, p. 64-65.National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of the USA, 1957)
This is exactly what is written in the Daniel 9:24-26 vision of the 70 weeks (a 490 year period.) 483 years are fulfilled by the beginning of vs.26 at his first coming; the latter portion of vs.26 the prince that shall come, is the Antichrist not the true Messiah who is of the same lineage as those who destroyed the Jewish temple in 70 Ad. The Tribulation begins with the signing of the peace treaty with Israel v.27. Israel needs to be at peace for the world to be at peace, this is the area of greatest conflict in the world. Everyone wants to be located there, even Bahá'í's has a temple in Haifa.
Isa.28:14-15 This covenant Is made to guarantee security to Israel and the world. God's perspective of this covenant is that he calls it a covenant of death and hell. What Israel and the world thought was best for their security turns out to be their worst nightmare.Vs.16 tells us what happens to those who do not go along with this covenant.
Dan. 11:30-32 talking about this one who makes a covenant to replace Gods. "Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant. "His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him."
Jesus warns about a great tribulation and a ruler that comes in on the promises of peace through a one world government. It is here where we see the Bahai's fulfilling prophecy. Matt. 24:9-14: "Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name's sake. And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and Shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall arise, and shall lead many astray."
Jesus warned us about those just like Bahá'u'lláh, "For many will come in my name, saying, "I am the Christ," and will deceive many.. At that time if anyone says to you, "Look, here is the Christ!" or, "There he is!" do not believe it" (Matt. 24:5; 23).
Matthew 24:24, 26: "For there shall arise false Christ's, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, If possible, even the elect. See I have told you beforehand.... If therefore they shall say unto you, Behold, he is In the wilderness; Do not forth: Behold, he is in the inner chambers; believe it not.'
"Since there is one God these manifestations of God have each taught the same religious faith" (Bahai tract Wilmette, Ill.) Synthesizing all of the historys religions is certainly the last stroke of genius for the coming false Christ who is called anti Christ, who replaces the true one for a short period of time. A one world political and religious center, peace at last right? Wrong! Tolerance at the expense of truth is not the way of sanity, and certainly not the way of Christ.
Bahá'u'lláh teachings are for peace and unity of families, nations and the entire world. Bahá'u'lláh has revealed, in over 100 books, the message of God for the NEW WORLD ORDER." (the Return of Christ p.8)
There is a great deception coming (2 Thess.2). And he will fulfill in himself all that Bahá'í claims to look for in religions. He will be the great synthesizer appearing tolerant to all. It appears that the Bahá'í religion is helping pave the way for many who will come as Bahá'u'lláh did, except they will exhibit all power in signs and wonders, something that will be hard to refute without heeding Christ's warning and having him as the standard.
As Jesus said, another will come in his own name, him you will receive! The Bahá'í's are more than willing to do this themselves and they want to convince everyone else to do the same. John the Baptist paved the way for the Christ, they are paving the way for the one we know who will take the place of Christ, the false messiah. Your decision needs to be made now before you don't have a choice. Examine Christ's claims and look at what he said the end of time would be like, you may be spiritually surprised.
