I have always taken that verse to refer to people within the Faith and if you look at the History of those in the Baha'i faith who did claim a revelation - they all died covered in shame and abandoned - just like all of the government officials who persecuted Baha'u'llah, just like the whole army who executed the Bab (a wall fell on them while they were camping some time later), just like the horrendous diseases that afflicted the persecuters of Baha'u'llah. Did you know the Shah sent an envoy from His palace to discovcer whether His claims were true and the ebvoy became His follower? Did you also know that Baha'u'llah wrote to 7 monarchies during His lifetime. 6 of these He said would fall if they did not accept Him and 1 of these He said would endure. These 6 monarchies are now EXTINCT and in most cases their fall occured within a few years of His summons:
The enduring monarchy is England.
Now this is just one of many examples of how Baha'u'llah demonstrated His prophethood. What more could any sincere person want???? There are 100's of examples of miraculous things occuring like this in the Faith - show me any other person who claimed to be God and demonstrated it so clearly and I will believe in them. I understand many of your questions and i believe they all have answers but you seem to be determined not to accept them. That is fine. That is your right. Whether or not you are sincere in your questions or are just stiring dissension - I am not sure. But God sees your heart. I suggest you aske God to show you the answers to your questions and to open your heart. Then I suggest you find your local Baha'i community and take your questions to them.
