MAYAN PROPHECIES OF CHILAM BALAM


The prophecies of Chilam Balam (the Jaguar Priest) date from about 1168 AD.


The prophecies of Chilam Balam foretell the coming of the twin bearded guests from the east bearing aloft the "upright beam" beginning in 1844 AD. This is the "word of the "One God" come down "from heaven" which will "light the world" and "awaken" humanity on the "day of resurrection". The Baha'i Faith began in 1844 AD. The twin bearded guests from the east are Baha'u'llah and his forerunner, the Bab. They brought the message that will "light the world" and "awaken" humanity on the "day of resurrection".

Referring to this "day of resurrection" the Baha'i Writings state:
"O ye people. The Sun of Reality hath appeared and flooded all regions with its glorious light; it has upraised the Standard of Oneness of the world of humanity and summoned all mankind to the refulgent Truth. The cloud of Mercy is pouring, the zephyr of Providence is wafting and the world of humanity is being stirred and moved. The Divine Spirit is conferring eternal life, the heavenly lights are illumining the hearts, the table of the sustenance of the Kingdom is spread and adorned with all kinds of foods and victuals. O ye concourses of men! Awake! Awake! Become mindful! Become mindful! Open ye the seeing eye! Unstop the hearing ear! Hark! Hark! The soft notes of the Heavenly Music are streaming down, ravishing the ears of the people of spiritual discernment. Ere long this transcendent Light will wholly enlighten the East and West!"
- `Abdu'l-Baha

These prophecies of the Toltec and the Maya have been explicitly fulfilled.

Correction: Since first posting this article I have received additional information about one of the writers of this book. A Baha'i in Australia wrote: "I have read with much interest your article posted on the internet on MAYAN PROPHECIES OF CHILAM BALAM and you mentioned as source the book written by Dr Reginald Carls Reindorp. In the same article you mentioned that he is not a a Baha'i. Actually, I have been in charge the history of the Baha'i Faith in Peru and found that Reginald Reindorp became a Baha'i on the 9th of April 1944 in Lima, Peru, and also became the first secretary of the first Local Spiritual Assembly of Lima in 1944.
All what I would like to ask you, if to correct the information provided on the Internet and acknowledge Dr Reindorp's membership in the Baha'i faith."
