Be Not Dismayed O Peoples Of The World
Be not dismayed, O peoples of the world, when the day star of My beauty is
set, and the heaven of My tabernacle is concealed from your eyes. Arise to
further My Cause, and to exalt My Word amongst men. We are with you at all
times, and shall strengthen you through the power of truth. We are truly
almighty. Whoso hath recognized Me, will arise and serve Me with such
determination that the powers of earth and heaven shall be unable to
defeat his purpose.
The peoples of the world are fast asleep. Were they to wake from their
slumber, they would hasten with eagerness unto God, the All-Knowing, the
All-Wise. They would cast away everything they possess, be it all the
treasures of the earth, that their Lord may remember them to the extent of
addressing to them but one word. Such is the instruction given you by Him
Who holdeth the knowledge of things hidden, in a Tablet which the eye of
creation hath not seen, and which is revealed to none except His own Self,
the omnipotent protector of all worlds. So bewildered are they in the
drunkenness of their evil desires, that they are powerless to recognize
the Lord of all being, Whose voice calleth aloud from every direction:
"There is none other God but Me, the Mighty, the All-Wise."
Say: Rejoice not in the things ye possess; tonight they are yours,
tomorrow others will possess them. Thus warneth you He Who is the
All-Knowing, the All-Informed. Say: Can ye claim that what ye own is
lasting or secure? Nay! By Myself, the All-Merciful. The days of your life
flee away as a breath of wind, and all your pomp and glory shall be folded
up as were the pomp and glory of those gone before you. Reflect, O people!
What hath become of your bygone days, your lost centuries? Happy the days
that have been consecrated to the remembrance of God, and blessed the
hours which have been spent in praise of Him Who is the All-Wise. By My
life! Neither the pomp of the mighty, nor the wealth of the rich, nor even
the ascendancy of the ungodly will endure. All will perish, at a word from
Him. He, verily, is the All-Powerful, the All-Compelling, the Almighty.
What advantage is there in the earthly things which men possess? That
which shall profit them, they have utterly neglected. Erelong, they will
awake from their slumber, and find themselves unable to obtain that which
hath escaped them in the days of their Lord, the Almighty, the
All-Praised. Did they but know it, they would renounce their all, that
their names may be mentioned before His throne. They, verily, are
accounted among the dead.
