The Pen Of Revelation Exclaimeth: "on This

The Pen of Revelation exclaimeth: "On this Day the Kingdom is God's!" The
Tongue of Power is calling: "On this Day all sovereignty is, in very deed,
with God!" The Phoenix of the realms above crieth out from the immortal
Branch: "The glory of all greatness belongeth to God, the Incomparable,
the All-Compelling!" The Mystic Dove proclaimeth from its blissful bower,
in the everlasting Paradise: "The source of all bounty is derived, in this
Day, from God, the One, the Forgiving!" The Bird of the Throne warbleth
its melody in its retreats of holiness: "Supreme ascendancy is to be
attributed, this Day, to none except God, Him Who hath no peer nor equal,
Who is the Most Powerful, the All-Subduing!" The inmost essence of all
things voiceth in all things the testimony: "All forgiveness floweth, in
this Day, from God, Him to Whom none can compare, with Whom no partners
can be joined, the Sovereign Protector of all men, and the Concealer of
their sins!" The Quintessence of Glory hath lifted up its voice above My
head, and crieth from such heights as neither pen nor tongue can in any
degree describe: "God is my witness! He, the Ancient of everlasting days
is come, girded with majesty and power. There is none other God but Him,
the All-Glorious, the Almighty, the All-Highest, the All-Wise, the
All-Pervading, the All-Seeing, the All-Informed, the Sovereign Protector,
the Source of eternal light!"

O My servant, who hast sought the good-pleasure of God and clung to His
love on the Day when all except a few who were endued with insight have
broken away from Him! May God, through His grace, recompense thee with a
generous, an incorruptible and everlasting reward, inasmuch as thou hast
sought Him on the Day when eyes were blinded. Know thou that if We reveal
to thee but a sprinkling of the showers which, through God's decree, and
at the hands of the envious and the malicious, have rained upon Us, thou
wouldst weep with a great weeping, and wouldst bewail day and night Our
plight. Oh, would that a discerning and fair-minded soul could be found
who would recognize the wonders of this Revelation--wonders that proclaim
the sovereignty of God and the greatness of its power. Would that such a
man might arise and, wholly for the sake of God, admonish, privately and
openly, the people, that haply they may bestir themselves and aid this
wronged One Whom the workers of iniquity have so sorely afflicted.

Methinks that I hear the Voice of the Holy Spirit calling from behind Me
saying: Vary Thou Thy theme, and alter Thy tone, lest the heart of him who
hath fixed his gaze upon Thy face be saddened. Say: I have through the
grace of God and His might besought the help of no one in the past,
neither will I seek the help of any one in the future. He it is Who aided
Me, through the power of truth, during the days of My banishment in 'Iraq.
He it is Who overshadowed Me with His protection at a time when the
kindreds of the earth were contending with Me. He it is Who enabled Me to
depart out of the city, clothed with such majesty as none, except the
denier and the malicious, can fail to admit.

Say: My army is My reliance on God; My people, the force of My confidence
in Him. My love is My standard, and My companion the remembrance of God,
the Sovereign Lord of all, the Most Powerful, the All-Glorious, the

Arise, O wayfarer in the path of the Love of God, and aid thou His Cause.
Say: Barter not away this Youth, O people, for the vanities of this world
or the delights of heaven. By the righteousness of the one true God! One
hair of Him excelleth all that is in the heavens and all that is on the
earth. Beware, O men, lest ye be tempted to part with Him in exchange for
the gold and silver ye possess. Let His love be a storehouse of treasure
for your souls, on the Day when naught else but Him shall profit you, the
Day when every pillar shall tremble, when the very skins of men shall
creep, when all eyes shall stare up with terror. Say: O people! Fear ye
God, and turn not away disdainfully from His Revelation. Fall prostrate on
your faces before God, and celebrate His praise in the daytime and in the
night season.

Let thy soul glow with the flame of this undying Fire that burneth in the
midmost heart of the world, in such wise that the waters of the universe
shall be powerless to cool down its ardor. Make, then, mention of thy
Lord, that haply the heedless among Our servants may be admonished through
thy words, and the hearts of the righteous be gladdened.
