Whoso layeth claim to a Revelation direct from
God, ere the expiration of a full thousand years, such a
man is assuredly a lying impostor. We pray God that
He may graciously assist him to retract and repudiate
such claim. Should he repent, God will, no doubt,
forgive him. If, however, he persisteth in his error,
God will, assuredly, send down one who will deal
mercilessly with him. Terrible, indeed, is God in
punishing! Whosoever interpreteth this verse otherwise
than its obvious meaning is deprived of the Spirit of
God and of His mercy which encompasseth all created
things. Fear God, and follow not your idle fancies.
Nay, rather, follow the bidding of your Lord, the
Almighty, the All-Wise. Erelong shall clamorous
voices be raised in most lands. Shun them, O My
people, and follow not the iniquitous and evil-hearted.
This is that of which We gave you forewarning when
We were dwelling in &Iraq, then later while in the Land
of Mystery, and now from this Resplendent Spot.
Be not dismayed, O peoples of the world, when
the day-star of My beauty is set, and the heaven of My
tabernacle is concealed from your eyes. Arise to further
My Cause, and to exalt My Word amongst men. We
are with you at all times, and shall strengthen you
through the power of truth. We are truly almighty.
Whoso hath recognized Me will arise and serve Me
with such determination that the powers of earth and
heaven shall be unable to defeat his purpose.
The peoples of the world are fast asleep. Were they
to wake from their slumber, they would hasten with
eagerness unto God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
They would cast away everything they possess, be it all
the treasures of the earth, that their Lord may
remember them to the extent of addressing to them but
one word. Such is the instruction given you by Him
Who holdeth the knowledge of things hidden, in a
Tablet which the eye of creation hath not seen, and
which is revealed to none except His own Self, the
omnipotent Protector of all worlds. So bewildered are
they in the drunkenness of their evil desires, that they
are powerless to recognize the Lord of all being, Whose
voice calleth aloud from every direction: "There is none
other God but Me, the Mighty, the All-Wise."
Say: Rejoice not in the things ye possess; tonight
they are yours, tomorrow others will possess them.
Thus warneth you He Who is the All-Knowing, the
All-Informed. Say: Can ye claim that what ye own is
lasting or secure? Nay! By Myself, the All-Merciful, ye
cannot, if ye be of them who judge fairly. The days of
your life flee away as a breath of wind, and all your
pomp and glory shall be folded up as were the pomp
and glory of those gone before you. Reflect, O people!
What hath become of your bygone days, your lost
centuries? Happy the days that have been consecrated
to the remembrance of God, and blessed the hours
which have been spent in praise of Him Who is the All-Wise.
By My life! Neither the pomp of the mighty, nor
the wealth of the rich, nor even the ascendancy of the
ungodly will endure. All will perish, at a word from
Him. He, verily, is the All-Powerful, the All-Compelling,
the Almighty. What advantage is there in
the earthly things which men possess? That which shall
profit them, they have utterly neglected. Erelong, they
will awake from their slumber, and find themselves
unable to obtain that which hath escaped them in the
days of their Lord, the Almighty, the All-Praised. Did
they but know it, they would renounce their all, that
their names may be mentioned before His throne.
They, verily, are accounted among the dead.
