Meeting the People Who Work Towards Unity by Camilla Chance

When my cosmopolitan family arrived in Melbourne, Australia, I felt tremendous kindness at my new school. Since I felt no kindness from my own family, it surprised me.

In the divine Holy Books there are unmistakable prophecies giving the glad tidings of a certain Day in which the Promised One of all the Books would appear, a radiant dispensation be established, the banner of the Most Great Peace and conciliation be hoisted and the oneness of the world of humanity proclaimed. Among the various nations and peoples of the world no enmity or hatred should remain. All hearts were to be connected one with another.

These things are recorded in the Torah, or Old Testament, in the Gospel, the Qu’ran, the Zend-Avesta, the books of Buddha and the book of Confucius. In brief, all the Holy Books contain these glad tidings. They announce that, after the world is surrounded by darkness, radiance shall appear. For just as the night, when it becomes excessively dark, precedes the dawn of a new day, so likewise when the darkness of religious apathy and heedlessness overtakes the world, when human souls become negligent of God, when materialistic ideas overshadow spirituality, when nations become submerged in the world of matter and forget God-at such a time as this shall the divine Sun shine forth and the radiant morn appear. — Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, pp. 220–221.

In all the holy books-for example, those of Zoroaster, Buddha, Krishna, Moses, Christ and Muhammad-you can find the promise God made to Abraham, that He would never leave His people without a teacher. Each of these teachers, when the Spirit of God spoke through them, talked about coming back “at the time of the End,” the end of the era of prophecy and the beginning of the era of fulfillment, when God’s Will would be done on Earth. They all referred to the same person: Baha’u’llah, the Glory of God, the Messiah to the Jews, the promised Shah Bahram to the Zoroastrians, the Fifth Buddha to the Buddhists, the return of Lord Krishna to the Hindus, the Twelfth Imam to the Shia Muslims and the return of the Spirit of Christ to Christians and to the Sunnis!
