A Very Merry Christmas & Jesus

cross-of-christ-0103This Christmas we reflect on Christ’s wonderful revelation and the profound impact His message of love and fellowship has had on the world.

Many have asked me if Baha’i followers believe in Jesus.  

To be a Baha’i is to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ with absolute certainty.

“Christ’s message of love continues to vibrate throughout the world.  His revelation, although written and compiled some 50 years after His passing, continues to transform the hearts of millions around the globe some 2,000 years later”.

Of Jesus Christ, Baha’u’llah, the Divine “Founder” of the Baha’i faith wrote:complex_celtic_cross

“Know thou that when the Son of Man yielded up His breath to God, the whole creation wept with a great weeping. By sacrificing Himself, however, a fresh capacity was infused into all created things. Its evidences, as witnessed in all the peoples of the earth, are now manifest before thee. The deepest wisdom which the sages have uttered, the profoundest learning which any mind hath unfolded, the arts which the ablest hands have produced, the influence exerted by the most potent of rulers, are but manifestations of the quickening power released by His transcendent, His all-pervasive, and resplendent Spirit.”

Through Him the leper recovered from the leprosy of perversity and ignorance. Through Him, the unchaste and wayward were healed. Through His power, born of Almighty God, the eyes of the blind were opened, and the soul of the sinner sanctified… We bear witness that through the power of the Word of God every leper was cleansed, every sickness was healed, every human infirmity was banished. He it is Who purified the world. Blessed is the man who, with a face beaming with light, hath turned towards Him.”

And so with the love and fellowship I’ve received from all of you who read this blog I wish you all a very merry Christmas.

“For those of you reading this who are unfamiliar with the beliefs of the Baha’i Faith, Baha’is believe in what is known as ‘progressive revelation’, which basically means that God sends His messages to society at different times in history through the teachings of ‘Messengers of God’, who are divinely inspired to pass those teachings on to the societies they live in. Therefore, Baha’is recognize the divine station of Jesus, who brought a message from God appropriate to the age and the society in which He appeared. The same goes for Buddha, Krishna, Moses, Mohammed, The Bab, and Baha’u’llah.”
