189 This New World Order #181





In the Persian Bayan, the Bab stated: Well is it with him who fixeth his

gaze upon the Order of Baha'u'llah, and rendereth thanks unto his Lord.

For He will assuredly be made manifest. God hath indeed irrevocably

ordained it in the Bayan. Shoghi Effendi identifies this Order with the

System Baha'u'llah envisages in the Aqdas, in which He testifies to its

revolutionizing effect on the life of humanity and reveals the laws and

principles which govern its operation.



The features of the new World Order are delineated in the Writings of

Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha and in the letters of Shoghi Effendi and the

Universal House of Justice. The institutions of the present-day Baha'i

Administrative Order, which constitute the structural basis of

Baha'u'llah's World Order, will mature and evolve into the Baha'i World

Commonwealth. In this regard, Shoghi Effendi affirms that the

Administrative Order will, as its component parts, its organic

institutions, begin to function with efficiency and vigour, assert its

claim and demonstrate its capacity to be regarded not only as the nucleus

but the very pattern of the New World Order destined to embrace in the

fullness of time the whole of mankind.



For additional information on the evolution of this new World Order, see,

for example, the letters of Shoghi Effendi published in The World Order of

Baha'u'llah.
