To Every Discerning And Illuminated Heart It






To every discerning and illuminated heart it is evident that God, the
unknowable Essence, the Divine Being, is immensely exalted beyond every
human attribute, such as corporeal existence, ascent and descent, egress
and regress. Far be it from His glory that human tongue should adequately
recount His praise, or that human heart comprehend His fathomless mystery.
He is, and hath ever been, veiled in the ancient eternity of His Essence,
and will remain in His Reality everlastingly hidden from the sight of men.
"No vision taketh in Him, but He taketh in all vision; He is the Subtile,
the All-Perceiving."...

The door of the knowledge of the Ancient of Days being thus closed in the
face of all beings, the Source of infinite grace, according to His saying,
"His grace hath transcended all things; My grace hath encompassed them
all," hath caused those luminous Gems of Holiness to appear out of the
realm of the spirit, in the noble form of the human temple, and be made
manifest unto all men, that they may impart unto the world the mysteries
of the unchangeable Being, and tell of the subtleties of His imperishable
Essence.

These sanctified Mirrors, these Day Springs of ancient glory, are, one and
all, the Exponents on earth of Him Who is the central Orb of the universe,
its Essence and ultimate Purpose. From Him proceed their knowledge and
power; from Him is derived their sovereignty. The beauty of their
countenance is but a reflection of His image, and their revelation a sign
of His deathless glory. They are the Treasuries of Divine knowledge, and
the Repositories of celestial wisdom. Through them is transmitted a grace
that is infinite, and by them is revealed the Light that can never
fade.... These Tabernacles of Holiness, these Primal Mirrors which reflect
the light of unfading glory, are but expressions of Him Who is the
Invisible of the Invisibles. By the revelation of these Gems of Divine
virtue all the names and attributes of God, such as knowledge and power,
sovereignty and dominion, mercy and wisdom, glory, bounty, and grace, are
made manifest.

These attributes of God are not, and have never been, vouchsafed specially
unto certain Prophets, and withheld from others. Nay, all the Prophets of
God, His well-favored, His holy and chosen Messengers are, without
exception, the bearers of His names, and the embodiments of His
attributes. They only differ in the intensity of their revelation, and the
comparative potency of their light. Even as He hath revealed: "Some of the
Apostles We have caused to excel the others."

It hath, therefore, become manifest and evident that within the
tabernacles of these Prophets and chosen Ones of God the light of His
infinite names and exalted attributes hath been reflected, even though the
light of some of these attributes may or may not be outwardly revealed
from these luminous Temples to the eyes of men. That a certain attribute
of God hath not been outwardly manifested by these Essences of Detachment
doth in no wise imply that they who are the Day Springs of God's
attributes and the Treasuries of His holy names did not actually possess
it. Therefore, these illuminated Souls, these beauteous Countenances have,
each and every one of them, been endowed with all the attributes of God,
such as sovereignty, dominion, and the like, even though to outward
seeming they be shorn of all earthly majesty....
