It Hath Been Decreed By Us That The Word






It hath been decreed by Us that the Word of God and all the potentialities
thereof shall be manifested unto men in strict conformity with such
conditions as have been foreordained by Him Who is the All-Knowing, the
All-Wise. We have, moreover, ordained that its veil of concealment be none
other except its own Self. Such indeed is Our Power to achieve Our
Purpose. Should the Word be allowed to release suddenly all the energies
latent within it, no man could sustain the weight of so mighty a
Revelation. Nay, all that is in heaven and on earth would flee in
consternation before it.

Consider that which hath been sent down unto Muhammad, the Apostle of God.
The measure of the Revelation of which He was the bearer had been clearly
foreordained by Him Who is the Almighty, the All-Powerful. They that heard
Him, however, could apprehend His purpose only to the extent of their
station and spiritual capacity. He, in like manner, uncovered the Face of
Wisdom in proportion to their ability to sustain the burden of His
Message. No sooner had mankind attained the stage of maturity, than the
Word revealed to men's eyes the latent energies with which it had been
endowed--energies which manifested themselves in the plenitude of their
glory when the Ancient Beauty appeared, in the year sixty, in the person
of 'Ali-Muhammad, the Bab.
