In August of 1842, Joseph Smith declared that "the Holy Ghost is now in a State of Probation". The term "Probation" in The Book of Mormon means a mortal life on Earth. Someone on planet Earth, in August 1843, the Holy Ghost was living a mortal life. Was joseph Smith referring to himself? He never claimed to be the Holy Ghost incarnate (in the flesh). However, there was a Man living in Iran (Persia) in August, 1843, Who later claimed to be the Holy Ghost incarnate. His birth name was Mirza Husein-Ali Nuri ("Prince Beauty-Exalted of Light"). He was a Persian noableman, and also a direct descendant of King David of Israel. He was a "Davidic Prince". He later changed His Name to BAHA'U'LLAH (Bah-HAH---oh-LAHHH): which means, in Arabic, "THE GLORY OF GOD".

In 1863, in Baghdad, Iraq, Baha'ullah (bah-HAH-oh-LAHHH) founded the BAHA'I FAITH: an independent world religion which now has about six million Believers (called Baha'is) in 120 countries.

In April of 1843, Joseph Smith heard an audible Voice which said:

"My son, if thou livest until thou art 85 years of age, thou shalt see the face of the Son of Man." (D&C 130:15)

For all but six days, Joseph Smith would be 85 in the year 1891.

Joseph Smith made plans to leave the Church in the care of his brother, Hyrum Smith, whom he ordained "President of the Church" a few weeks before they both were killed, in Carthage Illinois, in Uune of 1844. Joseph Smith had plans to take his secret group, called "The Holy Order", with him and go to Palestine: there to await the coming of the Son of Man in the year 1891. In that year, Baha'u'llah (bah-HAH-oh-LAHHH) climbed Mount Carmel and shouted:

"Call out to Zion, O Carmel, He Who was hid behind veils is come! Verily, this is the Day to hear the Voice, and see the Face, of the Son of Man" (Baha'u'llah, Tablet of Carmel, April, 1891)

Baha'u'llah (bah-HAH-oh-LAHHH) was NOT the return of Jesus! He was the incarnation of the HOLY GHOST. The Holy Ghost entered the body of Jesus during His baptism, and left Jesus on the Cross. According to the Bible and The Book of Mormon, the Holy Ghost "begot" Jesus, and is the "Father". The Holy Ghost told Joseph Smith:

"Ye were in the beginning with the Father, that which is Spirit, even the Spirit of Truth." (D&C 93:23)

Baha'u'llah is the Holy Ghost incarnate.

The Prophecies of the Baha'i Seers

Did Baha'i Seers prophesy of World War One, the Spanish Flu Epidemic, the sinking of the Titanic, the Holocaust, the Internet, and the 9-11 Terrorist Attacks many years or decades before these events took place? Yes...they DID! Please read...



Joseph Smith NOT a "Prophet" in the Baha'i Sense of that Term

The Baha'is (bah-highzz) are NOT required to accept Joseph Smith as a Prophet of God. In fact, Baha'is are required to NOT accept him as a Prophet. In Baha'i terms a "Prophet" means a sinless and infallible Manifestation of God on Earth. The Baha'i Faith also accepts the concept of "Seers". In Baha'i terms, a "Seer" is NOT a Prophet, but an ordinary "sinful" human being who has "true visions". Baha'is MAY accept, or reject, Joseph Smith as a "Seer". Baha'is cannot accept Joseph Smith as a "Prophet" but they "may" (if they so choose) accept him, or reject him, as a "Seer".

The Teachings of Xorol R. Oliver: "The Mormon Prophetess"

A woman named Xorol (ksor-rawl) Robinson Oliver (1889-1955) was born a Mormon in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1889. She was a descendant of Mormon Apostle Willard Richards. Xorol (ksor-rawl) claimed to be a "Seer" and to have visited the Spirit-World many times in Out-of-Body Experiences. She became a Baha'i in 1830. According to the information she received during her OBE's to the Spirit-World:

*GOD is not an exalted Man, but the Universal Mind of the Cosmos
*The Names and Attributes of GOD incarnate on Earth and other planets as Messengers of God: called "Manifestations of God"
*Mankind evolved from lower forms of life.
*Adam was not the first man, but the first man with a God-Breathed Soul.
*All descendants of Adam "inherit" of "copy" of his God-Breathed Soul.
*Celestial beings "reincarnate" on this planet, and others.
*Telestial beings have "one mortal life" per planet (consecutive incarnation)
*Joseph Smith was a true SEER who "fell" into sin in 1835, and all his "revelations" (Book of Abraham, Kinderhood Plates, plural marriage, etc.) after that time were NOT of God.
*The Book of Mormon was written by a group of Rosicrucian monks in Pennsylvania, as a prophetic parable about America.
*The Angel Moroni was not a long-dead Nephite, but a flesh and blood man who belonged to the Rosicrucian Order who wrote The Book of Mormon.
*The Rosicrucian order (Zionitic Brotherhood) chose Joseph Smith to bring forth THE BOOK OF MORMON as a witness and a warning.
*Baha'u'llah was the Holy Ghost in the flesh on this planet, as was Krishna, Buddha, and some others.
*The Garden of Eden story in Genesis is a parable, not literal, but the story is based upon real historical people, Pharaoh Ay ("eye") and princess Khiyah, who lived in a literal walled Garden in Egypt, about 1350 B.C.
*Pharaoh Ay was one of the incarnations of the Soul of Adam.
*The "talking snake" in Genesis was not a literal snake, but refers to the "Cobra crown" that Egyptian pharaohs and queens wore on their heads: symbolic of the "Wisdom of the Gods".
*Khiyah ("Eve") was not made from a literal rib from Adam's (Ay's) chest, but from the "rib" in his loins (i.e. she was his grand-daughter)
*Joseph Smith "fell" because of sexual sin, like King David.
*Polygamy is an "abomination" and should not be practiced except in the most exceptional of cases.
*THE bOOK OF MORMON is not literal history, but rather a prophetic parable about the future of America, when the dark races ("Lamanites") shall become the great majority, and the white skinned race ("Nephites") shall become a small minority, and protect themselves in fortresses, but will ultimately be destroyed by the dark skinned races.
*Jesus came to Salt Lake City in September, 1912, and stayed for three days and three nights, and The Salt Lake Tribune did an article on Him and His visit titled "Prophet of Peace Comes to the City".

Several thousand Mormons have become Baha'is, and many more are now studying the Faith. The Baha'i Faith has no missionaries. If you want to study it, you must read Internet articles, and attend a Baha'i Center and get books about the Faith. Contact information is in the links below.

NOTE: Baha'is can believe that Joseph Smith was a fraud and charlatan, and that "The Book of Mormon" was written by him, or by him and others, to merely make money! This view is also acceptable in the Faith. Most Baha'is have "no opinion" about Joseph Smith or Mormonism or The Book of Mormon.

"My son, if thou livest until thou art eighty-five years of age {1891], thou shalt see the face of the Son of Man." (The LORD to Joseph Smith, recorded in Doctrine and Covenants section 130:15)

"Verily, this is the Day to hear the Voice, and to see the Face, of the Son of Man." (Baha'u'llah, Tablet of Carmel, 1891)
