Speaking of the One that will come, The Holy One of Israel who will work the wonders foretold in the last day…Baha’is believe that this refers to Baha’u’llah whose name means The Glory of the Lord, and the desert that will “blossom as the rose” to refer to none other than the Baha’i gardens of Mt. Carmel in Haifa, Israel; Carmel that overlooks the Plains of Sharon.

 

“….the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose….the excellence of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord…” Isaiah
