I was acquainted to the number 2020 only last year,
by our regional representative, in an election meeting.
I then looked back at some research I made when I studied
3 verses starts with the same sentence announcing the overture
of the Bab and what is said in the verse. They are 9:33, 48:28 and 61:9.
Those 3 verses each contain 60 letters and 14 words.
The first and the last is identical and from on to another
there is 3903 verses. (1301 x 3)
1301 is the 212th prime number. Letters B-A-B is 212.
If you add the numbers (the digits) of the abjad value of
the letters of the first or the last verse, the total of each is 212.
This may identify the messenger mentioned in the verses.
Secondly, the number of word Allah between the first and the
second verse is 1222. If we assume it means solar years,
I just do this to find the hegira : 1222 x 365 / 354 = 1260ah
(or 1222 +622 = 1844 ad). Simple as a b c, à la William Sears.
Then, from the first verse to the third, there are
1398 word Allah. Again: 1398 x 365 / 354 = 1441 ah
(or 1398 + 622 = 2020 ad)
I calculated this with the small attachment given
By the submission.org site. (WinQt)
A winter of unprecedented severity will soon be upon you. Its storm clouds are fast gathering on the horizon. Tempestuous winds will assail you from every side. The Light of the Covenant will be obscured through my departure. These mighty blasts, this wintry desolation, shall however pass away. The dormant seed will burst into fresh activity. It shall put forth its buds, shall reveal, in mighty institutions, its leaves and blossoms.
The vernal showers which the tender mercies of my heavenly Father will cause to descend upon you will enable this tender plant to spread out its branches to regions far beyond the confines of your native land. And finally the steadily mounting sun of His Revelation, shining in its meridian splendor, will enable this mighty Tree of His Faith to yield, in the fullness of time and on your soil, its golden fruit.
