What is the Baha’i perspective on the Day of Judgment?

“The time is at hand when whatsoever lieth hid in the souls and hearts of men will be disclosed.” ~ Baha’u’llah

Baha’u’llah wrote, “The time is at hand when whatsoever lieth hid in the souls and hearts of men will be disclosed.” (ESW p. 107).  Baha’is believe that the Holy Spirit that has poured out to all the religions of the world is being renewed. This is the end of an era: the era of a divided mankind. This is the meaning of the greatest Day of Judgment humanity could imagine. This is the day that Baha’u’llah said would be “The day when mankind shall stand before the Lord of the Worlds.” (ESW p. 114). This is the day when “he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” (Isaiah 2:4). This is the day when Baha’u’llah wrote “that which God hath ordained as the sovereign remedy and mightiest instrument for the healing of the world is the union of all its peoples in one universal Cause, one common Faith. This can in no wise be achieved except through the power of a skilled, an all-powerful, and inspired Physician.” (ESW, p. 62)
