Prophecy Fulfillment and the Baha’i Faith @ UMD Kirby 264
Apr 2 @ 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Prophecy Fulfillment and the Baha'i Faith @ UMD Kirby 264 | Duluth | Minnesota | United States

Students Seeking Spirituality

Guest speaker and Baha’i Teacher, Adam Sippola, will discuss prophecy fulfillment and it’s relationship to the Baha’i Faith, as the Baha’i Faith is a faith based upon proof – scientific, scriptural, historical and spiritual.

Mr. Sippola will present examples of specific prophecy fulfillment, such as the prophesied name, date, address & mission of the Promised Ones spoken of in the scriptures, as well as abstract fulfillment of vision and prophecy, as with the ancient Hebrew Kabbalah, the Tree of Life.

This presentation is being hosted by Students Seeking Spirituality, a student organization at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

“Ridvan” (pronounced Rizwan) means paradise, and is named for the Garden of Ridvan, where Baha’u’llah stayed for 12 days prior to his exile from Baghdad to Constantinople in 1863, and where He first proclaimed His mission as the Promised One of all previous Revelations.

The Festival of Ridvan is celebrated from April 21st – May 2nd, with the 1st, 9th, and 12th days celebrated as Holy Days.

This feast will include a spiritual portion, consisting of prayer, writings,and a short presentation, followed by a physical portion, consisting of a potluck dinner and fellowship. All are warmly welcome.
