In our last post we revealed that the New Name mentioned in Revelations 2:17 and 3:12 was Baha. Bahá’u’lláh has confirmed that the greatest name ( most great name) is “Baha”. The various derivatives of the word “Baha” are also regarded as the Greatest Name. Shoghi Effendi’s secretary writing on his behalf explains that The Greatest
Name is the Name of Bahá’u’lláh.
Bahá’u’lláh has said: “Consider these days in which He Who is the Ancient Beauty hath come in the Most Great Name, that He may quicken the world and unite its peoples.” (Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 63)
“O King of Paris! Tell the priest to ring the bells no longer. By God, the True One! The Most Mighty Bell hath appeared in the form of Him Who is the Most Great Name, and the fingers of the will of Thy Lord, the Most Exalted, the Most High, toll it out in the heaven of Immortality, in His name, the All-Glorious. (Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 45)
“He Who is the Most Great Name is come, on the part of the Ancient King, and hath announced unto men this Revelation which lay hid in His knowledge, and was preserved in the treasury of His protection, and was written down by the Most Sublime Pen in the Books of God, the Lord of Lords.” (Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 127)
Baha’u’llah has said:It beseemeth all men, in this Day, to take firm hold on the Most Great Name, and to establish the unity of all mankind. (Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 203)
“O concourse of priests! Leave the bells, and come forth, then, from your churches. It behoveth you, in this day, to proclaim aloud the Most Great Name among the nations. Prefer ye to be silent, whilst every stone and every tree shouteth aloud: ‘The Lord is come in His great glory!’? Well is it with the man who hasteneth unto Him. Verily, he is numbered among them whose names will be eternally recorded and who will be mentioned by the Concourse on High. (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 13)
Great is the blessedness of him who hath in this Day cast away the things current amongst men and hath clung unto that which is ordained by God, the Lord of Names and the Fashioner of all created things, He Who is come from the heaven of eternity through the power of the Most Great Name, invested with so invincible an authority that all the powers of the earth are unable to withstand Him. Unto this beareth witness the Mother Book, calling from the Most Sublime Station. (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 48)
Baha’u’llah has said:”The Ancient Beauty is come in His most great name and He wisheth to admit all mankind into His most holy Kingdom. (Baha’u’llah, The Summons of the Lord of Hosts, p. 63)
Arise thou to serve the Cause and say: I swear by the righteousness of God! Verily this is the Primal Point, arrayed in His new attire and manifested in His glorious Name. He at present beholdeth everything from this Horizon. Indeed He is supreme over all things. Amongst the Concourse on High He is known as the Most Great Announcement and in the Realms of Eternity as the Ancient Beauty, and before the Throne by this Name  which hath caused the footsteps of them that are endued with understanding to slip .
[1 The Most Great Name.] (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 182)
