The world was created in six days and on the seventh day God rested. The seventh day God sanctified and blessed. The seventh day is the beginning of the next week which begins with Sunday. The seventh day is the end of the week and continues forever without end. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The direction of heaven is upward; the direction of earth gravity is downward. Through the Sabbath heaven and earth become connected the unity described in the Zohar the book of Splendor, One with One, God is One and his name is One.
Universal faith means that religions of the world were revealed in order of progressive revelation. This means that God sent each religious founder prophet to progressively advance religious teachings. The Bha”i faith in Haifa is a Universal faith. Unlike other universal religions, the Bha”i writings do not state that the human race is a whole but celebrates the variety of religions and the differences among peoples. The Bha”i faith was founded in the mid-nineteenth century by Bahuulah who claimed to be a prophet. He was persecuted and spent over a decade in prison in Ottoman Palestine.
