145 Turn Your Faces Toward Him Whom God Hath Purposed Who Hath Branched From This Ancient Root #121

Baha'u'llah here alludes to 'Abdu'l-Baha as His Successor and calls upon

the believers to turn towards Him. In the Book of the Covenant, His Will

and Testament, Baha'u'llah discloses the intention of this verse. He

states: The object of this sacred verse is none other except the Most

Mighty Branch. The Most Mighty Branch is one of the titles conferred by

Baha'u'llah on 'Abdu'l-Baha. (See also notes 66 and 184.)
