    Did you now this? Bahai is not the youngest abrahamic faith. This faith believe in a prophet after Bahaullah

    The religions name is: Mission of Maitrya, eternal divine path

    Who is Maitreya?

    He has been expected for generations by all of the major religions. Christians know him as the Christ, and expect his imminent return. Jews await him as the Messiah; Hindus look for the coming of Krishna; Buddhists expect him as Maitreya Buddha; and Muslims anticipate the Imam Mahdi or Messiah.

    HOW HE BECAME
    MAITREYA

    A lecture by a disciple on how Maitreya realized who He is and how He eventually decided to start His Mission.
    We will explain Maitreya's childhood briefly and then will explain the part how he became Maitreya in length.
    He was born in Tehran, Iran, November 8, 1944 (1944 numerically is 1 + 9 = 10 = 1 or 1944 = 1 + 4 + 4 = 9, the same as the numerical value for 144,000). Tehran is located in an area that is east of Jerusalem and west of Tibet. This fulfills the expectation of the Jews and Christians who are waiting for Maitreya to come from the East. This also fulfills the expectation of Hindus and Buddhists who are waiting for him to come from the West.
    Maitreya's ancestors lived in an area north of Tehran called Taleghan, a mountainous region consisting of eighty villages.

    A prophet after Bahaullah: The One Whom God Shall Make Manifest

    Great, great is the Cause! The hour is approaching when the most great convulsion will have appeared. I swear by Him Who is the Truth! it shall cause separation to afflict everyone, even those who circle around Me. (Advent of Divine Justice, p. 81)

    The speaker in the Advent of Divine Justice, is Bahaullah. Bahaullah is one of the twin revealers of the Bahai Faith. The other Prophet and founder of the Bahai Faith is the Bab. The Bahai Faith is the fifth Seal of The Greatest Sign, and likewise deals with the events of the Fifth Angel as discussed in Revelation 3: 2-6.

    Both the Bab and Bahaullah predicted a third Prophet who was the last and final Revealer of a three-part revelation known as the revelation of the Greatest Name. The Prophet was to be born in the same land, as were the Bab and Bahullah, Persia, but to be Manifested in the West:

    If the sun arises in the west, it would still be the same sun; one must not withdraw from it on account of its rising place nor consider the west to be always the place of sunset. (Abdul-Baha in Some Answered Questions, Chap. 14)

    Unveil thy face, O beauty of the Lord, that the Sun may arise in the West... (Bahullh, cited in Haifa Notes of May Maxwell).

    Issue forth from your cities, O peoples of the West and aid your God ere the Day when the Lord of mercy shall come down unto you in the shadow of the clouds. (The Bab in Selections from the Writings of the Bb, p. 56)

    These prophecies of the western Prophet, are about the Seventh Angel and/or revealer of the Seventh Seal. As Bahaullah said in the opening quote, Great, great is the Cause! The hour is approaching when the most great convulsion will have appeared. This great convulsion is the same event as that the Bible speaks of in Revelation 16:18, when the Seventh Angel releases an earthquake, as had not occurred since men were on earth.

    Maitreya is the Seventh Angel. It is He who was born in Persia, just like the Bab and Bahaullah, but Maitreya's Dispensation began in the West in the year 1982, just as God promised through these two Prophets.
    God in the Bible also promised a Prophet to arise in the West, though all former Prophets had arisen in the East. Of course God did just as He promised He would, for the Maitreya is here!
    They lift up their voices, they sing for joy; over the majesty of the Lord they shout from the West. Therefore in the East give glory to the Lord; in the coastlines of the sea, to the name of the Lord, the God of Israel... (Isaiah 24:14-15).

    I believe this is a false religion and I believe that the man who is claiming to be Maitreya is a false prophet.

    Baha'u'llah wrote that there would be no more Revelations direct from God for at least 1000 years, so that means that there could be not be another Prophet until at least 2852 AD.

    62. Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years # 37

    The Dispensation of Bahá’u’lláh will last until the coming of the next Manifestation of God, Whose advent will not take place before at least “a full thousand years” will have elapsed. Bahá’u’lláh cautions against ascribing to “this verse” anything other than its “obvious meaning”, and in one of His Tablets, He specifies that “each year” of this thousand year period consists of “twelve months according to the Qur’án, and of nineteen months of nineteen days each, according to the Bayán”.

    The intimation of His Revelation to Bahá’u’lláh in the Síyáh-Chál of Ṭihrán, in October 1852, marks the birth of His Prophetic Mission and hence the commencement of the one thousand years or more that must elapse before the appearance of the next Manifestation of God.
    The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Pages 195-196

    “Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years, such a man is assuredly a lying impostor. We pray God that He may graciously assist him to retract and repudiate such claim. Should he repent, God will, no doubt, forgive him. If, however, he persisteth in his error, God will, assuredly, send down one who will deal mercilessly with him. Terrible, indeed, is God in punishing! Whosoever interpreteth this verse otherwise than its obvious meaning is deprived of the Spirit of God and of His mercy which encompasseth all created things. Fear God, and follow not your idle fancies. Nay, rather, follow the bidding of your Lord, the Almighty, the All-Wise. Erelong shall clamorous voices be raised in most lands. Shun them, O My people, and follow not the iniquitous and evil-hearted. This is that of which We gave you forewarning when We were dwelling in ‘Iráq, then later while in the Land of Mystery, and now from this Resplendent Spot.”
    The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, p. 32

    This man is claiming to be the Seventh Angel. Baha'is believe that Baha'u'llah was the Seventh Angel, according to the Writings of Abdu'l-Baha.

    “The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.” (Rev. 11:14) The first woe is the appearance of the Prophet, Muḥammad, the son of ‘Abdu’lláh—peace be upon Him! The second woe is that of the Báb—to Him be glory and praise! The third woe is the great day of the manifestation of the Lord of Hosts and the radiance of the Beauty of the Promised One. The explanation of this subject, woe, is mentioned in the thirtieth chapter of Ezekiel, where it is said: “The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Howl ye, Woe worth the day! For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near.” (Ez. 30:1–3)

    Therefore, it is certain that the day of woe is the day of the Lord; for in that day woe is for the neglectful, woe is for the sinners, woe is for the ignorant. That is why it is said, “The second woe is past; behold the third woe cometh quickly!” This third woe is the day of the manifestation of Bahá’u’lláh, the day of God; and it is near to the day of the appearance of the Báb.

    “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rev. 11:15)

    The seventh angel is a man qualified with heavenly attributes, who will arise with heavenly qualities and character. Voices will be raised, so that the appearance of the Divine Manifestation will be proclaimed and diffused. 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…..”
    Abdu'l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, pp. 56-57

    I had already looked at his claim. He used to be an atheist according to his website.
    Plus, he does not have any new Book. Only claim.

    That is weird. Baha'u'llah says that he is the return of the Christ and is the Messenger/Prophet of the age and that there will be others but not for at least a 1000 years.
    Baha'u'llah and the Bab did not say another would come but those who want this new prophet are probably misinterpreting the writings of Baha'u'llah etc just as Baha'i misinterprets the Bible and just as they say Christians misinterpret the Hebrew scriptures.
    And of course there will be others doing similar things. There are many false Christs and false Messiahs.
    It makes everyone confused and ready to look away from the Abrahamic religions to philosophies of the East etc. It hides the real Christ in a sea of Christs.
    But of course if people read the Bible a bit more carefully they might realise that when Christ returns He it will literally mean the end of the age and the world as we know it. It will be obvious for all to see.
    It is interesting that Baha'i says that there is no Satan who is deceiving the world.

    LOL. Just a little denial here and a tweek and twist there and I bet this new Christ can twist Baha'u'llah writings around to mean anything he wants and his followers will believe him. (It's all a matter of interpretation I hear) But then again maybe he just claims that Baha'u'llah is the false Christ and does not even rely on what Baha'u'llah wrote.

    He was reminded as a man Jesus legal past was the agreed position. Given new message heavens voiced from old voiced heard advice AI effect.

    Temple science was only agreed in new governing only. Human babies not illegally guilty of sex change. He taught you should not agree with sex change love and not judge nor murder human family it's not their crime.

    The crime was temple science which government Muslim in theera wanted temple pyramid rebuilt reused in Jerusalem...the argument.

    Proving star return gives man mind new nuclear reminders. Scientists destroyer of life.

    I had no idea this religion existed. It is very interesting. However, every time I try loading the website my Chrome browser freezes and becomes unresponsive. I did bookmark it and put it in my religion bookmarks folder.

    The fact that you shared this with us has informed me that you are much more interesting of a person than I thought you were, a deep thinker with lots of ideas to share with us. The religion itself is very interesting. I don't know how it can relate my own spiritual journey, as an Earthseed shaper, but I will not be the person (unlike the Baha'is here) that will claim the person creating this religion is a false prophet. I simply don't know enough about it.

    However, because you shared this with us, I am now much more interested in you as a result. I started to follow you. I am following this thread too. Free feel to discuss this or other spiritual and theological matters with me in DMs if you want constructive criticism. :)

    (Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 345)

    In my opinion, the reason Baha'u'llah said this is to preserve the unity of the Baha'is for a thousand years after Baha'u'llah. We do expect a Manifestation to come after Baha'u'llah at some point.

    Both the Bab and Bahaullah predicted a third Prophet who was the last and final Revealer of a three-part revelation known as the revelation of the Greatest Name. The Prophet was to be born in the same land, as were the Bab and Bahullah, Persia, but to be Manifested in the West:

    I never heard of such a thing of a final revealer of a three part revelation predicted by the Bab and Baha'u'llah. Baha'u'llah Himself is known as the revelation of the Greatest Name. This part, I believe, is to deceive the ignorant.

    Maitreya is the Seventh Angel. It is He who was born in Persia, just like the Bab and Bahaullah, but Maitreya's Dispensation began in the West in the year 1982, just as God promised through these two Prophets.

    Baha'u'llah predicted nothing of the sort. As the above says, He ruled out a Prophet for at least 1000 years. This is an obvious lie.

    Ya, not gonna happen.

    None of any Abrahamic hopes. No temple, no second coming, no messiah, no rapture, no nothing.

    Well, Shoah and Armageddon certainly can happen, but that's not anything that Heaven wants, just you...

    Starlight. First thing, are you not a Bahai? If you are, then why are you hiding it? Fooling others or ashamed of it?
    I am a Hindu and an atheist. I neither believe in existence of God nor in prophets/sons/messengers/manifestations/mahdis.
    I am a person who believes in science and all the verbiage as in your post seems foolish to me.

    OK, but I didn't see anything new from him. The Manifestations of God, always bring new Laws and Ordinances. Also, All new Manifestations faced Persecution. Some of their followers were martyred. None of these evidences is present in this person who called himself Maitreya. He doesn't have followers really.
