    Baha’is have very high hopes for the glorious future of Iran; they have been invested with a spiritual educational mission for this outcome; haw can the present authorities imagine that through intimidation the Iranian Baha’is will abandon their mission? Not only will the Iranian Baha’is be steadfast, but if needed, those who have left as pioneers to the rest of the world are prepared to return to Iran to help the spiritual reconstruction of this God blessed land.

    Time and time history shows that the meek and the vicims ultimately inherit the earth. Who is the winner today after 2000 years? Caiphas or the victim nailed on a cross between two thieves? As recorded in Luke 21:9-19 “And when you shall hear of wars and seditions, be not terrified. … Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there shall be great earthquakes in divers places and pestilences and famines and terrors from heaven: … they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, … for my name’s sake. …Lay it up therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before how you shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to resist and gainsay. And you shall be betrayed by your parents and brethren and kinsmen and friends: and some of you they will put to death. And you shall be hated by all men for my name’s sake. But a hair of your head shall not perish.
