6. Promising and Rewarding

Then the King will say to those on His right hand, “Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…” _Christ (Matt. 25:34)

If ye choose to follow Me, I will make you heirs of My Kingdom…298 _Bahá’u’lláh

I am coming soon…Him who overcomes…I will also write on him my new name…I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. _Christ (Rev. 3:11-13,21)

…better is guidance for him who is guided than all the things that exist on earth, for by reason of this guidance he will, after his death, gain admittance into Paradise, whereas by reason of the things of the world below, he will, after his death, receive his deserts.299 _The Báb

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life… _Christ (John 5:24)

O My servants! Whoso hath tasted of this Fountain hath attained unto everlasting Life…300 _Bahá’u’lláh

Such is the station ordained for the true believer that if to an extent smaller than a needle’s eye the glory of that station were to be unveiled to mankind, every beholder would be consumed away in his longing to attain it. For this reason it hath been decreed that in this earthly life the full measure of the glory of his own station should remain concealed from the eyes of such a believer.301 _Bahá’u’lláh

We dare not, in this Day, lift the veil that concealeth the exalted station which every true believer can attain, for the joy which such a revelation must provoke might well cause a few to faint away and die.302 _Bahá’u’lláh

Know thou, of a truth, that if the soul of man hath walked in the ways of God, it will, assuredly, return and be gathered to the glory of the Beloved. By the righteousness of God! It shall attain a station such as no pen can depict, or tongue describe. The soul that hath remained faithful to the Cause of God, and stood unwaveringly firm in His Path, shall, after his ascension, be possessed of such

power that all the worlds which the Almighty hath created can benefit through him.303 _Bahá’u’lláh

Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in heaven… _Christ (Luke 6:23)

Rich is the prize that shall be won by him who hath believed and exclaimed: “Lauded art Thou, O Beloved of all worlds! Magnified be Thy name, O Thou the Desire of every understanding heart!”304 _Bahá’u’lláh
