    Mission Of Maitreya, "Eternal DIvine Path" is where you will find the explaination of the thousand year period told by Bahaullah, as a time period in which there will be no need of prophets direct from God.
    When God sends His teachings to earth, at first they are difficult to follow. For example, Christians say that all you have to do is, is to just believe and Christ and you will go to heaven, no mention of the spiritual journey, they took the spiritual journey out so that more people could understand and follow the teachings easily and the dogma of the intellectuals led them away from Truth. Also Jews are Gods Chosen Ones, Islam says that it is the end of revelation. Bahais say that 1000 years must pass before any new teachings are to develop.

    What has happened is that the Bahai`s have just made it easy for themselves to follow their religion, and dogma has crept in, so it seems very clear to them that Maitreya is not talking to God at all, but is a lying imposter, and something terrible is awaiting him. But if you study the Bahai religion you will find bits of the oringinal idea of the manifestion to come, such as --- they were waiting for him and did not have the set time, 1000 years, as what is being taught today in the Bahai faith. They have it easy!


    "ye shall know them by their fruits", is the only way to know if Maitreya is telling the truth. So I have sent many Bahais to the Mission of Maitreya website and they come back and say, "I don`t understand what he is saying", as the stuff is too deep for them at that moment. I have the same problem but after time I have understood exactly what Maiterya is saying(writing). And besides, ---what do you think this is?!-- I say that Bahaullah has another prophet and you skim through that prophets writings and lo and behold, you say: I skimmed through the writings and it is not from God". OK, Ok, but I am staying where my beliefs make sense.

    Maitreya is not saying any different then what Bahaullah is saying about the 1000 years. Maitreya is giving the explaination of the 1000 years, and the meaning is in the bible, Revelation, where it is foretold that 1000 years of peace will happen on planet earth. That`s all, quite simple isn`t it? So the 1000 years is the one in the bible,,, look further and it says that this 1000 years is going to happen after the Seventh Angel opens the Book of the Seven Seals. Did Bahaullah open that Book? Read more in The Revelation and you will find out that no can open that book but the Seventh Angel. Did Bahaullah open that Book? Something to note here is that the The Revelation is a book of prophecy that has event happen in a certain order, one this is to happen then another and then the next thing is suppost to happen.

    The Covenant. The Covenant is God`s Plan. Please study even further the writings of Shogii Effendi becuase he says that he is an imperfect being, and that there are, our plans and there are the plans of God.

    Drew has been missing for months, but he is interested in challenging the fact that Baha`u'llah carefully explained there would no new Manifestation of God for a thousand years (Baha`u'llah b. 1817, d. 1892CE).

    "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." Kitabi'i Aqdas, p. 131,132.

    It's a self-blown tempest in a teapot, please ignore.

    Regards,

    Scott

    Roughly speaking a Manifestation of God has appeared every 600-150 years throughout human history.

    It is real.
    Go to the website and read and you will see that Maitreya is explaining what the 1000 years means. I donnot understand what you are saying, "in my dreams". I wake up and will go to the computer and there it is: Maitreya explaining the 1000 years.

    Scott, you are not allow to explain the 1000 years, Bahai policy, UHJ. You will be kick-out at the snap of your fingers. Go ahead, try it. No, no, I mean the 1000 years mentioned a coulple of times the The Revelation, in the Bible(that`s right, please do that, read the bilbe). Do you want The Revelation to remain a mystery to the Bahai forever and ever, I mean there must be some meaning to The Revelation, do you have any ideas Scott?

    Drew,

    You can't move me in this. The Maitreya you ask me to believe appears to me in all honesty to be a dingbat.

    Sorry, that's the simple truth.

    Regards,
    Scott

    Okay, no answers Drew ???

    I'll give one then, maitreya's have imitated, are now imitating, and will try to imitate Christ, the 1,000 year thing is just another example.

    Will there be one maitreya or many, who will reign for a 1,000 years on earth ????

    Would they just all get together and make up their minds who will be the reigning maitreya for the millenium ????

    Sorry but maitreyas are nothing but Christ imitators.

    Christ will reign on earth for a 1,000 years; not one, any or all maitreya.

    FFH,
    The Maitreya Buddha has been prophesied since before Jesus Christ came at all.
    The "Maitreya" person Drew talks about has nothing to do with the Maitreya Buddha. And if you ever tried to read any of the drek he passes off as divine revelation you would have no doubt he is an imposter.

    Regards,
    Scott

    Scott, I am over at some other forum, 24 hour, they are getting to hate me over there as much as you do. Odd, don`t you think, that Bahais don`t know how to act like adults when it comes to religious conversations. Already this is a sure sign for any seeker that you donot hold God`s teachings anymore.
