As To Thy Question Concerning The Origin

As to thy question concerning the origin of creation. Know assuredly that

God's creation hath existed from eternity, and will continue to exist

forever. Its beginning hath had no beginning, and its end knoweth no end.

His name, the Creator, presupposeth a creation, even as His title, the

Lord of Men, must involve the existence of a servant.

As to those sayings, attributed to the Prophets of old, such as, "In the

beginning was God; there was no creature to know Him," and "The Lord was

alone; with no one to adore Him," the meaning of these and similar sayings

is clear and evident, and should at no time be misapprehended. To this

same truth bear witness these words which He hath revealed: "God was

alone; there was none else besides Him. He will always remain what He hath

ever been." Every discerning eye will readily perceive that the Lord is

now manifest, yet there is none to recognize His glory. By this is meant

that the habitation wherein the Divine Being dwelleth is far above the

reach and ken of any one besides Him. Whatsoever in the contingent world

can either be expressed or apprehended, can never transgress the limits

which, by its inherent nature, have been imposed upon it. God, alone,

transcendeth such limitations. He, verily, is from everlasting. No peer or

partner has been, or can ever be, joined with Him. No name can be compared

with His Name. No pen can portray His nature, neither can any tongue

depict His glory. He will, for ever, remain immeasurably exalted above any

one except Himself.

Consider the hour at which the supreme Manifestation of God revealeth

Himself unto men. Ere that hour cometh, the Ancient Being, Who is still

unknown of men and hath not as yet given utterance to the Word of God, is

Himself the All-Knower in a world devoid of any man that hath known Him.

He is indeed the Creator without a creation. For at the very moment

preceding His Revelation, each and every created thing shall be made to

yield up its soul to God. This is indeed the Day of which it hath been

written: "Whose shall be the Kingdom this Day?" And none can be found

ready to answer!
