Ridwan 2020: An open letter to all the Baha’i world - Directed through the friends of India

Ridwan 2020

An open letter to all the Baha’i world

Directed through the friends of India


Dear friends, 
Allah'u'Abha!
  
May the blessings and glory of God be upon you all and all your loved ones in this clear Day of the visible birth of the Great Peace of our times. "Man schemes and God schemes and God is the best of schemers" (al-Anfal Q 8:20).

AS WE come into the fullness of this first Century of the Covenant (1921-2021), and this penultimate year of 2020, BEHOLD: an Act of God--The current COVID-19 Crisis, and the universal global lock-down and shut-in protocols of the Quarantine for all the people of the world--as 'Abdu'l-Baha spoke in 1912: "All nations will be forced into it."

The Quarantine has effectively stopped all the major wars in temporary cease fire. Palestinians and Israelis have gone home; Yemen signed a temporary truce to get aid and medical supplies, etc. This may be the first time that the world has experienced the closest thing to peace on earth! At least for the last 40 days. According to the New York Times, the majority of Americans say "No!" to returning back to the former "Beast" materialistic economy of the American driven so-called "Forever War." The people are tired of living the way they have been, out of balance, working endless jobs without breaks, living hand to mouth, pay check to pay check, and participating--through no other options--in destructive behaviors and destructive lifestyles dictated by the circumstances of an endless war economy based on greed, personal aggrandizement, a throw-away culture of instant gratifications, and planned obsolescence of inferior products, goods, and services.

This Act of God has in effect said: "STOP!" "Go home...cooperate with one another...clean up your act....change your ways....emerge to work together for a better world..." Together We can make this world not merely a better place, but a real garden paradise on earth for ourselves, our children, all creatures, and for all future generations. Obviously if we will work together, cooperate, as the Baha'is are able to do through our Covenant and Administration--as one soul in one body--this alone can remedy the situation--all of us real people--human beings--taking care of the real business at hand of life, and life abundantly! Through meeting, gathering, assembling, speaking out, and participating together under the Covenant, God guides us along the way every moment of every day, and all obstacles are overcome.



For the first time in many years the Holy Mountains of the Himalayas can be seen again from the low lands of India because the air pollution has cleared up in just over one month of God halting man's destructive activities, and in Beijing as well as in other places. The rivers have cleared up in the canals of Venice for the first time anyone can remember in their lives, and in other parts many animals are reported to be re-occupying areas now abandoned by the people. Traffic is down, crime is down, gas prices in America are abnormally low. The streets of Rome and New York City are vacated and empty (Rev. ch. 16-19). The threats of a coming oil war (Rev. 6:6) with the US and Russia are brewing at this very time with Saudi Arabia, Iran, Israel, Turkey, Syria, the Palestinians, and other Arab peoples in the midst.

This current universal Covid-19 crisis has opened a door of opportunity for universal human cooperation to NOW take place to make the earth a better place and better home for us all. We sent out a video message for Naw Ruz that can be found at the links to be given in our follow-up letter. That Naw Ruz 2020 message gets into the prophetical aspect of these things from the perspective of the Book of Revelation and HOPI Prophecy. Also to be sent out in follow-up to this guidance letter we have  3 documents of importance we recently received from the Hopi. These will be uploaded to the Internet and can be found in the link section in our follow-up letter. Also to uploaded the Council of the IBC/UHJ has re-issued The Indictment sent out during the April 29, 1980 worldwide media projection of Dr. Leland Jensen. The IBC/UHJ has reissued The Indictment in time for the 40th year anniversary: April 29, 1980-April 29, 2020 (Ez. 4:6 KJV).

As for other guidance:

The IBC/UHJ is at the present time establishing a solid communication network with all the friends throughout the world. A more efficient system of communication for the business affairs of the faith. On the one hand while we strengthen our gnostic connections with one another  through Baha'u'llah's Covenant of friendship, we are able to use the proper channels of the Covenant and Administration to communicate, resolve, and implement both spiritual and practical affairs more quickly and smoothly.

In establishing the protocol of proper channels the IBC/UHJ will be contacting the different friends and believers in the coming weeks through our new contact e-mail address of the Secretary General's office: secgen2020@yahoo.com

The secretary generals of the local, national, and international councils (as well as the isolated centers) are the communication hub of the Baha'i world. Baha'u'llah has stated that Our "mere act of...gathering together" (GL. xliii) is enough to "scatter the forces" of darkness.

Through the regular communication, assembly, and fellowship of all the friends everywhere--and including the office of the Secretariat--as well as holding 19 day feasts, online zoom meetings, and other regular assemblies of the Baha'is, our community generates a self-sustaining positive spiritual vortex that has a lasting effect on the world and our immediate spiritual and physical environment for the better (see World Order of Baha'u'llah, pp. 9 and 19 for more). If you wish to be in direct touch with us please contact us anytime at: secgen2020@yahoo.com

This current crisis that began this Equinox 2020 parallels the Exodus of Moses event almost 4000 years ago. It begins on the Vernal Equinox with "the angel of death" (Ex. chps. 11, 12) passing over the entire world in the form of this crisis, only on a scale of "one day is equal to one year" (Num. 14:34; Ez. 4:6). The outer virus threat is also symbolic of the other invisible "virus" of a new covenant-breaking strain of poison that has been circulating through the population at this same time.

Passing the test is as easy as falling off a log, Dr. Jensen has said. Opposition only engenders loyalty in all the rest, states 'Abdu'l-Baha. Like the physical virus survival only boosts the immune system and strengthens the body as these tests come upon us. The people need to have ample time to make their adjustments to the new reality. The work to be done now is the inner temple work. As we turn toward the God of our own understanding, make our adjustments, and deepen in God, the spirit, and practical matters such as the need to plant Victory Gardens at this time, and prepare for what is to come next. If the Baha'is work together and cooperate, the prophecy states, these times of trouble shall be like passing though warm-milk for the believers. As we consolidate our own affairs, and perform our own inner temple work of the spirit for ourselves and our community this will set a tone and influence those around us to be able to trust more in God and turn to the Divine protection and Bounty in this day.

"Trustworthiness is the greatest portal leading unto the tranquility and security of the people. In truth the stability of every affair hath depended and doth depend upon it. All the domains of power, of grandeur and of wealth are illumined by its light." (Baha'u'llah, Tarazat)

"Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues. Without truthfulness progress and success, in all the worlds of God, are impossible for any soul. When this holy attribute is established in man, all the divine qualities will also be acquired." ('Abdu'l-Baha, cf. Advent of Divine Justice) 

'Abdu'l-Baha states that "the day of judgment is not the time for God to exercise His wrath but to exercise His mercy." This is because the signs for the reality of God are so obvious on the Day of Judgment (20/20 vision), that it is a Mercy for us all to be guided to see the truth of God with our own eyes and to directly and immediately experience the personal reality of God's Promise fulfilled in our very own beings: independent of all save God. 

At the last August Gathering in 2019 we announced that as the "7 seals" of the Hopi Fireclan Tablet were now opened we have entered the time period of the Hopi Purification that shall last for 7 years, 7 months, 7 weeks, and seven days. This corresponds with the prophetic events that parallel the exodus of Moses on the scale of each day for a year, the next seven years. 

This lock down shows us that we will not be able to move from our locations in the time of a great disaster. The India community should look into purchasing a national center property in a rural area of India (Shoghi Effendi calls this a "goal city") where the School & Cultural Center would be safe from both a nuclear war and the earth's shifting crust. This is to preserve the faith, the culture of India and the people of India, that includes the Baha'i peoples of India there. A teaching, healing, and refugee center with enough Baha'i households in that town or village to have a Baha'i community with people there to accept, orient, and care for students, guests, visitors, and in the case of disasters, refugees.

The American Baha'i Community is in the process of consolidating its national center and business offices in the rural areas of the State of Colorado at this time; and with the assistance of the IBC/UHJ has located a suitable "goal city." This is in accordance with the instructions of both the Guardians 'Abdu'l-Baha's son, Mason Remey Aghsan and Shoghi Effendi. Shoghi Effendi stated:

"Baha'is must have a new way of life. They need to be different from other people. They must be distinguished. The more distinguished, the more they will attract people. The greater the distinction, the greater the attraction. They must read the Tablets of the Covenant of 'Abdu'l-Baha (Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha) and study the Text of the Teaching (the Book of the Covenant of Baha'u'llah, the Kitab-i-Ahd). It is not enough to be good and kind and to lead a religious life today; it does not count for much unless one accepts the Manifestation of God and His Covenant, and the successors named therein..."

"The young people must disperse far away, the old ones to outlying places; they must settle goal cities. Sell your property and pioneer! The young people of America should go out into the country on farms and work with their hands and produce food for their families."

"Americans are exposed to great dangers. Today the power of America is in the hands of the masses. There is a terrific power in the press, and the people are swayed by it. The United States, on a national scale, sets the pattern for an international pattern. There will be a World Civil War, followed by the establishment of a world state; all the nations will be a part of it and will have to conform to it. This war has already started...."

"Mankind cannot be purified and cleansed without suffering. It is positively dangerous to live in cities. The cities are doomed. They will go up in smoke. They will evaporate. The Baha'is must disperse from the cities...why do they not disperse? If they do not respond and disperse, they will suffer spiritually, materially, and physically. In America the destruction will be great! They must disperse for their own protection. The cities are doomed: New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles... America will become the storm center of the future."

"Those with independent means must pack up and go. Those with spirit must pack up and go. There must be a mass response. I can warn them, but I cannot make them go. The Cause will triumph in spite of the actions and inactivity of the believers. If one country falls down, another will make up for it. The Baha'is have been given the method. Now they must have the spirit. It is hopeless for capable teachers in the cities (the people will not listen)...

"People are flocking to churches through fear. Americans must have a totally new way of life, become a race of wholly devoted souls, devoted to God and His ways. They must get to a simpler way of life. The standards of America must be lowered, have fewer luxuries. Americans do not have enough belief in God, not enough detachment. They must be more spiritual, disencumber themselves from things, have Baha'i standards, not American standards. Americans are too materialistic, too mechanized, too attached to family, health, and death. There must be less materialism, less intellectualism, and more spirit. America is the most disturbed nation, politically, on earth. There is too much organization in America and too little spirit." (Shoghi Effendi, http://www.uhj.net/end-time-prophecy.html)

"Reflections such as these should steel the resolve of the entire Baha'i community, should dissipate their forebodings, and arouse them TO REDEDICATE THEMSELVES TO EVERY SINGLE PROVISION OF THAT DIVINE CHARTER-the sacred Will and Testament-whose outline has been delineated for them by the pen of 'Abdu'l-Baha." (Shoghi Effendi, Advent of Divine Justice, p. 73)

Today the American Baha'i Community has overcome all of the challenges and obstacles leveled against those of the past by Shoghi Effendi. The Baha'is under the Covenant today in America are not like the people in the 1940s and 50s. They have located many goal cities and pioneered them back in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The mainstay of the entire Baha'i Community in America lives outside of these large mega-cities that Shoghi Effendi has warned against. Those few in or near these nuclear target cities are there for spiritual and not material reasons. All today are filled with the Spirit. All today have attained the deep level of devotion, loyalty, severance, and detachment needed in these times of Test. How else could the American National Council consolidate its resources, combine its energies, and focus upon one single goal city at this time, to make the people's national center in the USA? By the power of Spirit!

Therefore have we all--in both India and America and our community of loved ones all throughout the world--most certainly attained the individual and group capacity to take up this task, and reap that great benefits and spiritual rewards in both this world and the next for working together on this plane of existence for a common important goal of great significance and impact: The Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven, the pure spiritual democracy of unity in diversity, that is, divine civilization for all! God graduates us from the former cycle and condition, and has opened up this new Baha'i era: and if we look very closely and subtly, and if we take pause and meditate into deep spiritual intuition and interior percepts: we may behold the birth and blossoming of the first green shoots of the Lesser Peace! Has not Baha'u'llah Himself prophetically declared in the Ridvan Season: "Behold! The Divine Springtime has Come!"

Now in this crisis we have already lost friends, loved ones, and dear family members. It is my firm belief that those of us who are physically taken in these things are called by God into the light to be the protectors, coworkers, and guardian angels over our loved ones still on earth on this side of the veil. Nothing can ever separate us from each other, or us from God, because love is simply the POWER of ATTRACTION; and we are attracted to God, and know each other with God, through God, and in God. As long as God shall last, Baha'u'llah declares in His holy writings, we shall last (GL, lxxiii). Death itself is a lie, for we are surrounded by our loved ones, ancestors, and holy angels, and advanced beings protecting and looking out for us as helpers unto God in both this life and the next.

"It is clear and evident that when the veils that conceal the realities of the manifestations of the Names and Attributes of God, nay of all created things visible or invisible, have been rent asunder, nothing except the Sign of God will remain--a sign which He, Himself, hath placed within these realities. This sign will endure as long as is the wish of the Lord thy God, the Lord of the heavens and of the  earth. If such be the blessings conferred on all created things, how superior must be the destiny of the true believer, whose existence and life are to be regarded as the originating purpose of all creation. Just as the conception of faith hath existed from the beginning that hath no beginning, and will endure till the end that hath no end, in like manner will the true believer eternally live and endure. His spirit will everlastingly circle round the Will of God. He will last as long as God, Himself, will last. He is revealed through the Revelation of God, and is hidden at His bidding. It is evident that the loftiest mansions in the Realm of Immortality have been ordained as the habitation of them that have truly believed in God and in His signs. Death can never invade that holy seat. Thus have We entrusted thee with the signs of thy Lord, that thou mayest persevere in thy love for Him, and be of them that comprehend this truth." (Baha’u’llah, GL, lxxiii)

This Covid Crisis and the social distancing pattern must be overcome. We are going to do this by gathering together on a more conscious regular basis and communicating with one another through both proper channels and through individual social and fellowship efforts.

Now is the appointed time--our world wide global wake-up call appointed hour--to come together and meet with one another. By activating the office of the Secretary General we mean to open up all proper channels so that everyone can participate!

The guidance from the IBC/UHJ is to participate. Through participating in the Covenant and current administration we are promised through Baha'i consultation to have all of our needs met and solutions given and prayers answered: when we work together and share fully and frankly.

We look forward to speaking with all the friends and networking with one another in person or via internet in the coming weeks.

Now is the time for everyone to participate!

On behalf of the Council,

I remain yours,your servant,

Neal.Guardian/President

The Divine Economy by Shoghi Effendi

For Baha'u'llah, we should readily recognize, has not only imbued mankind with a new and regenerating Spirit. He has not merely enunciated certain universal principles, or propounded a particular philosophy, however potent, sound and universal these may be. In addition to these He, as well as Abdu'l-Baha after Him, has, unlike the Dispensations of the past, clearly and specifically laid down a set of Laws, established definite institutions, and provided for the essentials of a Divine Economy. These are destined to be a pattern for future society, a supreme instrument for the establishment of the Most Great Peace, and the one agency for the unification of the world, and the proclamation of the reign of righteousness and justice upon the earth. Not only have they revealed all the directions required for the practical realization of those ideals which the Prophets of God have visualized, and which from time immemorial have inflamed the imagination of seers and poets in every age. They have also, in unequivocal and emphatic language, appointed those twin institutions of the House of Justice and of the Guardianship as their chosen Successors, destined to apply the principles, promulgate the laws, protect the institutions, adapt loyally and intelligently the Faith to the requirements of progressive society, and consummate the incorruptible inheritance which the Founders of the Faith have bequeathed to the world.

Should we look back upon the past, were we to search out the Gospel and the Qur'an, we will readily recognize that neither the Christian nor the Islamic Dispensations can offer a parallel either to the system of Divine Economy so thoroughly established by Baha'u'llah, or to the safeguards which He has provided for its preservation and advancement. Therein, I am profoundly convinced, lies the answer to those questions to which I have already referred....

Not so with the Revelation of Baha'u'llah. Unlike the Dispensation of Christ, unlike the Dispensation of Muhammad, unlike all the Dispensations of the past, the apostles of Baha'u'llah in every land, wherever they labor and toil, have before them in clear, in unequivocal and emphatic language, all the laws, the regulations, the principles, the institutions, the guidance, they require for the prosecution and consummation of their task. Both in the administrative provisions of the Baha'i Dispensation, and in the matter of succession, as embodied in the twin institutions of the House of Justice and of the Guardianship [the Davidic Kingship], the followers of Baha'u'llah can summon to their aid such irrefutable evidences of Divine Guidance that none can resist, that none can belittle or ignore. Therein lies the distinguishing feature of the Baha'i Revelation. Therein lies the strength of the unity of the Faith, of the validity of a Revelation that claims not to destroy or belittle previous Revelations, but to connect, unify, and fulfill them. This is the reason why Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l-Baha have both revealed and even insisted upon certain details in connection with the Divine Economy which they have bequeathed to us, their followers. This is why such an emphasis has been placed in their Will and Testament upon the powers and prerogatives of the ministers of their Faith.

For nothing short of the explicit directions of their Book, and the surprisingly emphatic language with which they have clothed the provisions of their Will, could possibly safeguard the Faith for which they have both so gloriously labored all their lives. Nothing short of this could protect it from the heresies and calumnies with which denominations, peoples, and governments have endeavored, and will, with increasing vigor, endeavor to assail it in future.

We should also bear in mind that the distinguishing character of the Baha'i Revelation does not solely consist in the completeness and unquestionable validity of the Dispensation which the teachings of Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l-Baha have established. Its excellence lies also in the fact that those elements which in past Dispensations have, without the least authority from their Founders, been a source of corruption and of incalculable harm to the Faith of God, have been strictly excluded by the clear text of Baha'u'llah's writings. Those unwarranted practices, in connection with the sacrament of baptism, of communion, of confession of sins, of asceticism, of priestly domination, of elaborate ceremonials, of holy war and of polygamy, have one and all been rigidly suppressed by the Pen of Baha'u'llah; whilst the rigidity and rigor of certain observances, such as fasting, which are necessary to the devotional life of the individual, have been considerably abated...

Dear friends! Feeble though our Faith may now appear in the eyes of men, who either denounce it as an offshoot of Islam, or contemptuously ignore it as one more of those obscure sects that abound in the West, this priceless gem of Divine Revelation, now still in its embryonic state, shall evolve within the shell of His law, and shall forge ahead, undivided and unimpaired, till it embraces the whole of mankind. Only those who have already recognized the supreme station of Baha'u'llah, only those whose hearts have been touched by His love, and have become familiar with the potency of His spirit, can adequately appreciate the value of this Divine Economy - His inestimable gift to mankind.
Leaders of religion, exponents of political theories, governors of human institutions, who at present are witnessing with perplexity and dismay the bankruptcy of their ideas, and the disintegration of their handiwork, would do well to turn their gaze to the Revelation of Baha'u'llah, and to meditate upon the World Order which, lying enshrined in His teachings, is slowly and imperceptibly rising amid the welter and chaos of present-day civilization. They need have no doubt or anxiety regarding the nature, the origin or validity of the institutions which the adherents of the Faith are building up throughout the world. For these lie embedded in the teachings themselves, unadulterated and unobscured by unwarrantable inferences, or unauthorized interpretations of His Word.

How pressing and sacred the responsibility that now weighs upon those who are already acquainted with these teachings! How glorious the task of those who are called upon to vindicate their truth, and demonstrate their practicability to an unbelieving world! Nothing short of an immovable conviction in their divine origin, and their uniqueness in the annals of religion; nothing short of an unwavering purpose to execute and apply them to the administrative machinery of the Cause, can be sufficient to establish their reality, and insure their success. How vast is the Revelation of Baha'u'llah! How great the magnitude of His blessings showered upon humanity in this day! And yet, how poor, how inadequate our conception of their significance and glory! This generation stands too close to so colossal a Revelation to appreciate, in their full measure, the infinite possibilities of His Faith, the unprecedented character of His Cause, and the mysterious dispensations of His Providence....

Dearly beloved friends: Who, contemplating the helplessness, the fears and miseries of humanity in this day, can any longer question the necessity for a fresh revelation of the quickening power of God's redemptive love and guidance? Who, witnessing on one hand the stupendous advance achieved in the realm of human knowledge, of power, of skill and inventiveness, and viewing on the other the unprecedented character of the sufferings that afflict, and the dangers that beset, present-day society, can be so blind as to doubt that the hour has at last struck for the advent of a new Revelation, for a re-statement of the Divine Purpose, and for the consequent revival of those spiritual forces that have, at fixed intervals, rehabilitated the fortunes of human society? Does not the very operation of the world-unifying forces that are at work in this age necessitate that He Who is the Bearer of the Message of God in this day should not only reaffirm that self-same exalted standard of individual conduct inculcated by the Prophets gone before Him, but embody in His appeal, to all governments and peoples, the essentials of that social code, that Divine Economy, which must guide humanity's concerted efforts in establishing that all-embracing federation which is to signalize the advent of the Kingdom of God on this earth?


May we not, therefore, recognizing as we do the necessity for such a revelation of God's redeeming power, meditate upon the supreme grandeur of the System unfolded by the hand of Baha'u'llah in this day? May we not pause, pressed though we be by the daily preoccupations which the ever-widening range of the administrative activities of His Faith must involve, to reflect upon the sanctity of the responsibilities it is our privilege to shoulder?

The Spread of Baha'is under the Provision of Covenant (BUPC) Worldwide


“The foundation of this Cause is pure spiritual democracy, and not theocracy” (‘Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i Scriptures, p. 449).
“Just as in the world of politics there is need for free thought, likewise in the world of religion there should be the right of unrestricted individual belief. Consider what a vast difference exists between modern democracy and the old forms of despotism. Under an autocratic government the opinions of men are not free, and development is stifled, whereas in democracy, because thought and speech are not restricted, the greatest progress is witnessed. It is likewise true in the world of religion. When freedom of conscience, liberty of thought and right of speech prevail--that is to say, when every man according to his own idealization may give expression to his beliefs--development and growth are inevitable.” (‘Abdu’l-Baha, PUP, p. 197)

The Bahá'ís Under the Provisions of the Covenant (BUPC) is True Baha’i Faith who all believed that after the death of Shoghi Effendi in 1957, the majority of Bahá'ís were deceived, into believing that the Institution of Guardianship has ended. The Guardianship, and the living person of the Guardian, preserves and upholds the foundation of “pure spiritual democracy” needed in this world as the solution to the problems of humanity in every day and age.

One of the most important provisions of the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha is that the Universal House of Justice (UHJ) must have a president who is a descendant of Baha’u’llah. The BUPC is the only Baha’i group which has a Universal House of Justice with a descendant of Baha’u’llah as its president. The purpose of the descendant of King David being the president of Baha’u’llah’s Universal House of Justice is so that we can recognize the true UHJ of Baha’u’llah from fakes, frauds, and imitations.

Guardianship in BUPC
Unique to the BUPC: belief the institution of the guardianship is the continuation of the Davidic line, which Bahá'u'lláh passed onto his son, who in turn passed the lineage on to the institution of the guardianship. In His Proclamation Baha’u’llah wrote:

“The Ancient Beauty [Baha'u'llah] ruleth upon the throne of David. Thus hath my Pen spoken that which the histories of bygone ages have related.” (Proclamation of Baha'u'llah, p. 89)

The BUPC Baha’is of the World believe that Mason Remey is not the spiritual son but the LEGALLY ADOPTED SON OF 'ABDU'L-BAHA and therefore an Aghsan. This makes Mason Remey an Aghsan (branch of Baha’u’llah and ‘Abdu’l-Baha) and therefore qualifies him as the Guardian that is the president of the IBC/UHJ who has legally inherited the throne of King David.

Abdu’l-Baha made Mason Remey his legally adopted son being fully aware that the First Guardian Shoghi Effendi will not have any issue and the chain of Guardianship should continue through Mason Remey. While Shoghi Effendi is the Afnan Guardian.

The Gurdianship in BUPC runs as follows:

Mason Remey (The First Aghsan Guardian)
The Adopted and only son of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. Appointed by Shoghi Effendi in 1951, to be the first Aghsan Guardian of the Baha’i Faith as the president and executive of the first International Bahai Council (IBC). Mason Remey served as a Hand of  Cause under Shoghi Effendi. Mason Remey received recognition from ‘Abdu’l-Baha as well as Shoghi Effendi for being the firmest proponent of Baha’u’llah’s Covenant. As the legal executer of the Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Baha, Shoghi Effendi identified Mason Remey as ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s “Dear Son” (therefore an Aghsan) in writing, welcomed Mason as the first President of the IBC/UHJ in 1951, and protected the transfer of David’s throne from ‘Abdu’l-Baha to his son Mason.

Joseph Pepe  (The Second Aghsan Guardian)
The adopted and only son of Mason Remey. Appointed by Mason Remey to be the Second Aghsan Guardian of the Baha’i Faith. Joseph Pepe Remey was the President of the Second International Bahai Council and today his son succeeds him as the Third Aghsan Guardian of the Bahai Faith.

Neal Chase ben Joseph Aghsan (The Third Aghsan Guardian)
The third and the present Aghsan Guardian of the Baha’i Faith. Towards whom all the Bahais of the world should turn to recognize Baha’u’llah’s true Universal House of Justice. Branch; 3rd Guardian of the Baha’i Faith seated upon the throne of David. Great-grandson of Abdu’l-Baha, the adopted and only son of Joseph Pepe Remey.(http://bupc.org)

Covenant-Breakers Thwarted in Baha'i Domain Dispute

On February 24, 2005 the National Spiritual Assembly (NSA) of the Bahá'ís of the United States filed a complaint with the United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center (WIPO) against Neal Chase for his use of the domain name UHJ.net, which claims to be "The Official website of the Universal House of Justice" - a name for which the NSA has a United States federal trademark registration, issued in 1965.

The May 8 ruling released by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will keep the domain UHJ.NET in the possession of the Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant who are the only people in the world to have the true Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah with the Davidic King (Aghsan – Branch) as its president, the great grandson of 'Abdu'l-Baha as its functioning executive and living "guardian" seated upon the throne of King David that is to last for ever (see Psalms 89 for more).

Thousands of people have rejoiced at the defeat of the Age Old Enemy of the Davidic Kingship of Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l-Baha and of their sons entitled in Persian 'Aghsan' which literally means 'Branch' (see Zech. 3:8 KJV for more) that has been passed down through 'Abdu'l-Baha's son, grandson and now great grandson who is the president and first servant of the Council of the Universal House of Justice in this day today. The full text of the decision is at http://bupc.org/wipo.
The official Web site of the Universal House of Justice is at www.uhj.net
And the worldwide community of Baha'is at www.bupc.org

Covenant Breakers defeated in Court

Nov. 28: In a landmark judgement, a federal court in Chicago recently overruled a 1966 court decision that stopped the Davidic Kingship--Mason and his successors to the Executive branch of the UHJ-- from using the Baha'i name. The Chicago court judges, while criticising the 1966 ruling, said that it was a wrongful means of trying to resolve a question of religious authority. The federal 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that the 1966 decision does not apply to Neal Chase and the BUPC “even though they admitted to being [the legal] successors-in-interest to Remey” (https://www.chicagoiplitigation.com/2008/05/former-officers-not-bound-by-companys-injunction/ ).

The attempts of the Haifa- based mainstream Baha'i faith to shut down the public teaching effort and close down all the websites and publications of the Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant, have been thwarted with this ruling.

One of the most important outcomes of the ruling was that it has put aside all questions regarding religious organisations having any right to trademark its names or icons.

This came as a major boost to the 144,000 strong followers of the Baha'is under the Provision of Covenant world-wide. They believe that the mainstream Baha'i faith has strayed from the religion's original teachings.

"The abrogation of the original order has freed us from their "marks" and the 6-66 injunction is overthrown, null, and void. We are free to go forward with our path and plans to further advance the Baha'i faith, headed by the third guardian Neal Chase, the Covenant appointed" said Mr Sameer.

Spread of BUPC Faith

From 1980 to 1996 theAdherents were mostly concentrated in Missoula, Montana, with groups at times in Wyoming, Arkansas, Minnesota, Colorado, and Wisconsin.

From 1996 to 2005 the membership of BUPC increased world-wide and after the defeat of the covenant breakers in the domain dispute and court case and the Third Guardian Mr. Neal Chase taking a more proactive stand the BUPC Faith spread like wild fire in countries like United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Azerbaijan, India, Bangladesh etc. It looks like the mainstream covenant breakers has nothing to stop the spread of the True Faith except some false censuses to show that they are still being accepted in the International society as a Faith and not as a deviant cult.

Baha'u'llah

The Return of Christ

As the Bab gave his life so that Baha'u'llah should live, Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha gave their lives that the Davidic lineage should last for ever as the Presidents of the true Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah. The line of David has continued safe in America from the days of the Master's visit to that continent in 1912 when he rested for a day in the Rocky Mountains and where God has established his seed for ever.
