171 The Mystery Of The Great Reversal In The Sign Of The Sovereign #157

Shaykh Ahmad-i-Ahsa'i (1753-1831), who was the founder of the
Shaykhi School and the first of the twin luminaries that heralded the
advent of the Faith of the Bab, prophesied that at the appearance of the
Promised One all things would be reversed, the last would be first, the
first last. Baha'u'llah in one of His Tablets refers to the symbol and
allusion of the mystery of the Great Reversal in the Sign of the
Sovereign. He states: Through this reversal He hath caused the exalted
to be abased and the abased to be exalted, and He recalls that in the
days of Jesus, it was those who were distinguished for their learning, the
men of letters and religion, who denied Him, whilst humble fishermen made
haste to gain admittance into the Kingdom (see also note 172). For
additional information about Shaykh Ahmad-i-Ahsa'i see The
Dawn-Breakers, chapters 1 and 10.
