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.
