“…and I will write upon him my new name.” (Rev. 3:12).

In the 19th century, a venerable figure surnamed Bahá'u'lláh [aramaic meaning the Glory of the LORD] claimed to be the long awaited spirit of truth.  he was imprisoned and held captive by the ottomans for nearly half-a-century for his claim, yet his revelation did not cease.

'In a hundred volumes, the repositories of priceless precepts, mighty laws, unique principles, impassioned exhortations, reiterated warnings, amazing prophecies, sublime invocations, and weighty commentaries...[he] proclaimed...the Mission with which God had entrusted Him.  To emperors, kings, princes and potentates, to rulers, governments, clergy and peoples, whether of the East or of the West, whether Christian, Jew, Muslim, or Zoroastrian, He addressed for well-nigh fifty years, and in the most tragic circumstances, these priceless pearls of knowledge and wisdom that lay hid within the ocean of His matchless utterance...' 

He testified, "Ye are but vassals, O Kings of the earth! He Who is the King of kings hath appeared, arrayed in His most wondrous glory, and is summoning you unto Himself..." His call was unmistakable, yet most of the sovereigns failed to Heed it "Had they hearkened unto Me," he proclaimed, "they would have beheld the earth another earth."  History recounts their fate:
