Daily Reflection -13 Kamál (Perfection)

August 13, 2018 - August 14, 2018

“Ere long will God sail His Ark upon thee, and will manifest the people of Bahá who have been mentioned in the Book of Names” 

Regarding the meaning thereof:

“The members of the Universal House of Justice, designated by Bahá’u’lláh “the Men of
Justice”, “the people of Bahá who have been mentioned in the Book of Names”, “the Trustees
of God amongst His servants and the daysprings of authority in His countries”, shall in the
discharge of their responsibilities ever bear in mind the following standards set forth by Shoghi
Effendi, the Guardian of the Cause of God…”
(“The Constitution of the Universal House of Justice” (Haifa: Bahá’í World Centre, 1972), page 6) [7]

While there are many references in the Writings to the “Ark of the Cause”, these refer to the entire Faith of Bahá’u’lláh, Who writes of His followers as “the dwellers in the Crimson Ark”.

A more restricted meaning appears in the Tablet of Carmel:³

“Ere long will God sail His Ark upon thee, and will manifest the people of Bahá who have been mentioned in the Book of Names.”

“This passage is referred to by Shoghi Effendi, who identifies it as the Ark of God’s Laws,
whose occupants are the members of the Universal House of Justice. In other words this
passage is an allusion to the establishment of the Universal House of Justice on Mount Carmel.”
(From a letter dated 13 December 1994, written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice to a National Spiritual Assembly)
