Know Of A Certainty That In Every Dispensation






Know of a certainty that in every Dispensation the light of Divine
Revelation hath been vouchsafed unto men in direct proportion to their
spiritual capacity. Consider the sun. How feeble its rays the moment it
appeareth above the horizon. How gradually its warmth and potency increase
as it approacheth its zenith, enabling meanwhile all created things to
adapt themselves to the growing intensity of its light. How steadily it
declineth until it reacheth its setting point. Were it, all of a sudden,
to manifest the energies latent within it, it would, no doubt, cause
injury to all created things.... In like manner, if the Sun of Truth were
suddenly to reveal, at the earliest stages of its manifestation, the full
measure of the potencies which the providence of the Almighty hath
bestowed upon it, the earth of human understanding would waste away and be
consumed; for men's hearts would neither sustain the intensity of its
revelation, nor be able to mirror forth the radiance of its light.
Dismayed and overpowered, they would cease to exist.
