The Purpose of the Prophets.Baha’i World Faith

“By the righteousness of God! These are the days in which God hath proved the hearts of the entire company of His Messengers and Prophets, and beyond them those that stand guard over His sacred and inviolable Sanctuary, the inmates of the celestial Pavilion and dwellers of the Tabernacle of Glory. How severe, therefore, the test to which they who join partners with God must needs be subjected!”

Partners with God
In 1994 an individual believer asked the Universal House of Justice for an interpretation of the above passage by Baha’u’llah. The response was published in the Lights of Irfan. (UHJ. 2003. “Inmates of Celestial Pavilion.” pages 163-4. The response of the UHJ suggest that Mr. M study a number of passages where Baha’u’llah uses the phrase, “join partners with God.”

From “SÚRIY-I-VAFÁ [Muhammad Husayn, one of the early believers of Shíráz, surnamed `Vafá (Fidelity) by Bahá’u’lláh.] (Tablet to Vafá)”

Beware, beware lest thou behave like unto the people of the Bayán. For indeed they erred grievously, misguided the people, ignored the Covenant of God and His Testament and joined partners with Him, the One, the Incomparable, the All-Knowing. Verily they failed to recognize the Point of the Bayán…”
