ă37 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.ä
After Bahaullah declaration a person in India claimed in India that period of Islam is still continue and that God has appointed Him as a prophet of Islam and He is ÎPromised Messiahâ& Mehdi_Masoudä and God directly appointed Him to prove that Islam is a live religion of the time. All over His life He stood on His claim but prophecy of Kitab-e Aqdas couldnât applied on Him. Due to English government a secure ness provided to Him all over His life and God didnât ăsend down one who will deal mercilessly with him.ä More over He declared that God has promised Him that He will protect Him from the hands of human persons. He also succeeds to establish His community and according to His prophecy, His community spared all over the world. Why didnât the prophecy of Kitab-e-Aqdas apply on that person? Please describe?
