Know Assuredly That Just As Thou Firmly






Know assuredly that just as thou firmly believest that the Word of God,
exalted be His glory, endureth for ever, thou must, likewise, believe with
undoubting faith that its meaning can never be exhausted. They who are its
appointed interpreters, they whose hearts are the repositories of its
secrets, are, however, the only ones who can comprehend its manifold
wisdom. Whoso, while reading the Sacred Scriptures, is tempted to choose
therefrom whatever may suit him with which to challenge the authority of
the Representative of God among men, is, indeed, as one dead, though to
outward seeming he may walk and converse with his neighbors, and share
with them their food and their drink.

Oh, would that the world could believe Me! Were all the things that lie

enshrined within the heart of Baha, and which the Lord, His God, the Lord
of all names, hath taught Him, to be unveiled to mankind, every man on
earth would be dumbfounded.

How great the multitude of truths which the garment of words can never
contain! How vast the number of such verities as no expression can
adequately describe, whose significance can never be unfolded, and to
which not even the remotest allusions can be made! How manifold are the
truths which must remain unuttered until the appointed time is come! Even
as it hath been said: "Not everything that a man knoweth can be disclosed,
nor can everything that he can disclose be regarded as timely, nor can
every timely utterance be considered as suited to the capacity of those
who hear it."

Of these truths some can be disclosed only to the extent of the capacity
of the repositories of the light of Our knowledge, and the recipients of
Our hidden grace. We beseech God to strengthen thee with His power, and
enable thee to recognize Him Who is the Source of all knowledge, that thou
mayest detach thyself from all human learning, for, "what would it profit
any man to strive after learning when he hath already found and recognized
Him Who is the Object of all knowledge?" Cleave to the Root of Knowledge,
and to Him Who is the Fountain thereof, that thou mayest find thyself
independent of all who claim to be well versed in human learning, and
whose claim no clear proof, nor the testimony of any enlightening book,
can support.
