Baha’i view of the cause of the universe

It would not be prudent for me to explain to any reader the following from the founder of the Baha’i Faith c 1870’s, “That which hath been in existence had existed before, but not in the form thou seest today. The world of existence came into being through the heat generated from the interaction between the active force and that which is its recipient. These two are the same, yet they are different. Thus doth the Great Announcement inform thee about this glorious structure. Such as communicate the generating influence and such as receive its impact are indeed created through the irresistible Word of God which is the Cause of the entire creation, while all else besides His Word are but the creatures and the effects thereof. Verily thy Lord is the Expounder, the All-Wise.”
(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 140)
