The Pen Of The Ancient King Hath Never
The Pen of the Ancient King hath never ceased to remember the loved ones
of God. At one time, rivers of mercy have streamed from His Pen, at
another, through its movement, God's perspicuous Book hath been revealed.
He is the One to Whom none can compare, Whose utterance mortal man can
never rival. He it is Who from everlasting hath been established upon the
seat of ascendancy and might, He from Whose lips have gone out counsels
that can satisfy the needs of the whole of mankind, and admonitions that
can profit them.
The One true God beareth Me witness, and His creatures will testify, that
not for a moment did I allow Myself to be hidden from the eyes of men, nor
did I consent to shield My person from their injury. Before the face of
all men I have arisen, and bidden them fulfil My pleasure. My object is
none other than the betterment of the world and the tranquillity of its
peoples. The well-being of mankind, its peace and security, are
unattainable unless and until its unity is firmly established. This unity
can never be achieved so long as the counsels which the Pen of the Most
High hath revealed are suffered to pass unheeded.
Through the power of the words He hath uttered the whole of the human race
can be illumined with the light of unity, and the remembrance of His Name
is able to set on fire the hearts of all men, and burn away the veils that
intervene between them and His glory. One righteous act is endowed with a
potency that can so elevate the dust as to cause it to pass beyond the
heaven of heavens. It can tear every bond asunder, and hath the power to
restore the force that hath spent itself and vanished....
Be pure, O people of God, be pure; be righteous, be righteous.... Say: O
people of God! That which can ensure the victory of Him Who is the Eternal
Truth, His hosts and helpers on earth, have been set down in the sacred
Books and Scriptures, and are as clear and manifest as the sun. These
hosts are such righteous deeds, such conduct and character, as are
acceptable in His sight. Whoso ariseth, in this Day, to aid Our Cause, and
summoneth to his assistance the hosts of a praiseworthy character and
upright conduct, the influence flowing from such an action will, most
certainly, be diffused throughout the whole world.
