How Wondrous Is The Unity Of The Living

How wondrous is the unity of the Living, the Ever-Abiding God--a unity
which is exalted above all limitations, that transcendeth the
comprehension of all created things! He hath, from everlasting, dwelt in
His inaccessible habitation of holiness and glory, and will unto
everlasting continue to be enthroned upon the heights of His independent
sovereignty and grandeur. How lofty hath been His incorruptible Essence,
how completely independent of the knowledge of all created things, and how
immensely exalted will it remain above the praise of all the inhabitants
of the heavens and the earth!

From the exalted source, and out of the essence of His favor and bounty He
hath entrusted every created thing with a sign of His knowledge, so that
none of His creatures may be deprived of its share in expressing, each
according to its capacity and rank, this knowledge. This sign is the
mirror of His beauty in the world of creation. The greater the effort
exerted for the refinement of this sublime and noble mirror, the more
faithfully will it be made to reflect the glory of the names and
attributes of God, and reveal the wonders of His signs and knowledge.
Every created thing will be enabled (so great is this reflecting power) to
reveal the potentialities of its pre-ordained station, will recognize its
capacity and limitations, and will testify to the truth that "He, verily,
is God; there is none other God besides Him."...

There can be no doubt whatever that, in consequence of the efforts which
every man may consciously exert and as a result of the exertion of his own
spiritual faculties, this mirror can be so cleansed from the dross of
earthly defilements and purged from satanic fancies as to be able to draw
nigh unto the meads of eternal holiness and attain the courts of
everlasting fellowship. In pursuance, however, of the principle that for
every thing a time hath been fixed, and for every fruit a season hath been
ordained, the latent energies of such a bounty can best be released, and
the vernal glory of such a gift can only be manifested, in the Days of
God. Invested though each day may be with its pre-ordained share of God's
wondrous grace, the Days immediately associated with the Manifestation of
God possess a unique distinction and occupy a station which no mind can
ever comprehend. Such is the virtue infused into them that if the hearts
of all that dwell in the heavens and the earth were, in those days of
everlasting delight, to be brought face to face with that Day Star of
unfading glory and attuned to His Will, each would find itself exalted
above all earthly things, radiant with His light, and sanctified through
His grace. All hail to this grace which no blessing, however great, can
excel, and all honor to such a loving-kindness the like of which the eye
of creation hath not seen! Exalted is He above that which they attribute
unto Him or recount about Him!

It is for this reason that, in those days, no man shall ever stand in need
of his neighbor. It hath already been abundantly demonstrated that in that
divinely-appointed Day the majority of them that have sought and attained
His holy court have revealed such knowledge and wisdom, a drop of which
none else besides these holy and sanctified souls, however long he may
have taught or studied, hath grasped or will ever comprehend. It is by
virtue of this power that the beloved of God have, in the days of the
Manifestation of the Day Star of Truth, been exalted above, and made
independent of, all human learning. Nay, from their hearts and the springs
of their innate powers hath gushed out unceasingly the inmost essence of
human learning and wisdom.
