Midweek Reflections on the Declaration of the Bab
'Idál (Justice), 7 ‘Aẓamat Grandeur 175 B.E. - Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Declaration of the Bab

The Báb: "I am, I am, I am, the promised One!”1

"I am," thrice exclaimed the Báb, "I am, I am, the promised One! I am the One whose name you have for a thousand years invoked, at whose mention you have risen, whose advent you have longed to witness, and the hour of whose Revelation you have prayed God to hasten. Verily I say, it is incumbent upon the peoples of both the East and the West to obey My word and to pledge allegiance to My person."
The Báb2

I meditate upon the Declaration of the Bab. I contemplate the the millennial excitement and expectancy that, in 1844, occurred across the planet. I believe the Bab's claim to be the Promised One. I believe His appearance ended the Prophetic Cycle and begin the Cycle of Fulfillment. I believe His appearance marked the maturity of the human race. I believe he began the era that will see the Kingdom of God on Earth. I believe that Baha'u'llah is one the Bab referred to as the one who God would make manifest.


My only request
is to investigate
the Bab and Baha'u'llah.
