Baha’u’llah in Biblical Prophecy

Baha’is claim that the Bible speaks of Baha’u’llah, however, the only
reference to Baha’u’llah in the Bible is an indirect one when Jesus and
the apostles warned of the coming of false prophets and false Christs
(Matt. 7:15-16; 2 Cor. 11:13-15).  The messianic verses from the Bible
cited by Baha’is as referring to Baha’u’llah, can not truly support
their claim because, among other things, Baha’u’llah was of Iranian
descent, where the Messiah was to be Jewish (Matthew 1; Genesis 12:1-3;
II Samuel 7:12-13).  Also, the New Testament repeatedly cites the
fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecies in the person of Jesus Christ
(Matthew 1:1; 3:14; 8:17; Luke 1:31; Revelation 5:5).

The second coming of Christ also can not refer to Baha’u’llah. 
Scripture indicates that the very same Jesus who ascended into heaven
will one day personally return (Acts 1:9-11).  The Bible also
prophesies several dramatic and highly visible signs that will
accompany the Second Coming (Matthew 24:29).  None of these signs were
present when Baha’u’llah arrived on the scene.  He also didn’t show up
in the right place.  Scripture clearly indicates that at the Second
Coming the Messiah will come to Jerusalem and his feet will physically
touch the Mount of Olives (Zech. 14:4).  Baha’u’llah never did this.

The Spirit of truth in John 16:12-13 also can’t be referring to
Baha’u’llah.  John 14-16 clearly identifies the Spirit of Truth as
being the Holy Spirit (John 14:16-17, 26).  Jesus said that His promise
of the Holy Spirit would be fulfilled “in a few days” (Acts 1:5), not
in the 1800s when Baha’u’llah was born.  That fulfillment came on the
Day of Pentecost in Acts 2.  The function of the Holy Spirit is to make
known Jesus’ teachings, not to replace them with the interpretations of
another prophet.  Jesus also said that the Holy Spirit would be with us
forever (John 14:16).  Baha’u’llah died in 1892 at the age of 75, far
short of forever.

Ephesians 1:18-21 “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be
enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called
you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his
incomparably great power for us who believe.  That power is like the
working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he
raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the
heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion,
and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also
in the one to come.”
