The existence of some very exalted Beings in the Domains of God

Insights from a prayer by Baha’u’llah

In the Domains of God there are Beings:
  • “Who are the highest Embodiments of perception”
  • Who are known as “the Well Springs of wisdom” – They’ve been “generated through the operation” of God’s Will.
  • "Who are the inmost essence of oneness”. They are “sent down” to this world by God and “are but the evidences” of God’s “handiwork.”
  • “Who are the Quintessence of knowledge”. They are “the creation and instruments” of God’s Purpose.
Question: Should we understand that these Beings are the Manifestations of God Who appear in this contingent world or should we also assume that some belong to different worlds of God unknown to us?
