62 Whoso Layeth Claim To A Revelation Direct From God

ere the expiration

of a full thousand years 37

The Dispensation of Baha'u'llah will last until the coming of the next

Manifestation of God, Whose advent will not take place before at least a

full thousand years will have elapsed. Baha'u'llah cautions against

ascribing to this verse anything other than its obvious meaning, and

in one of His Tablets, He specifies that each year of this thousand year

period consists of twelve months according to the Qur'an, and of nineteen

months of nineteen days each, according to the Bayan.

The intimation of His Revelation to Baha'u'llah in the Siyah-Chal of

Tihran, in October 1852, marks the birth of His Prophetic Mission and

hence the commencement of the one thousand years or more that must elapse

before the appearance of the next Manifestation of God.
