Could Baha'u'llah
Be the Devil?

The Holy Bible Says No!

The Bible Says ...
... that Baha'u'llah
Is NOT the Devil

John 8:44

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

John 8:48-50

48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
49: Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
50: And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

Easton's Bible Dictionary

Satan: adversary; accuser. When used as a proper name, the Hebrew word so rendered has the article "the adversary" (Job 1:6-12; 2:1-7). In the New Testament it is used as interchangeable with Diabolos, or the devil, and is so used more than thirty times.

He is also called "the dragon," "the old serpent" (Rev. 12:9; 20:2); "the prince of this world" (John 12:31; 14:30); "the prince of the power of the air" (Eph. 2:2); "the god of this world" (2 Cor. 4:4); "the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience" (Eph. 2:2). The distinct personality of Satan and his activity among men are thus obviously recognized. He tempted our Lord in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1-11). He is "Beelzebub, the prince of the devils" (12:24). He is "the constant enemy of God, of Christ, of the divine kingdom, of the followers of Christ, and of all truth; full of falsehood and all malice, and exciting and seducing to evil in every possible way." His power is very great in the world. He is a "roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Pet. 5:8). Men are said to be "taken captive by him" (2 Tim. 2:26). Christians are warned against his "devices" (2 Cor. 2:11), and called on to "resist" him (James 4:7). Christ redeems his people from "him that had the power of death, that is, the devil" (Heb. 2:14). Satan has the "power of death," not as lord, but simply as executioner.

Baha'u'llah glorifies Christ, affirming for Baha'is the New Testament teachings about Christ. He confirmed and asserted the Sonship and Divinity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His redeeming sacrifice, salvation for those who believe in Him, and His power to overcome death and grant everlasting life.

We believe the Bible and we believe Jesus, so we KNOW that Baha'u'llah cannot be the devil, because all these things are TRUTH, and there is no truth in the devil.

In fact, according to 1 John 4:2, Baha'u'llah can only have come from God. The Bible says, "Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God."

Finally, since Baha'u'llah is the Return of the Christ, whatever was and is true of Jesus was and is true of Baha'u'llah. Jesus was not the devil, so Baha'u'llah cannot be the devil.
