"HE Who leadeth to true victory is come. By the righteousness..."
HE Who leadeth to true victory is come. By the righteousness
of God! He is fully capable of revolutionizing the
world through the power of a single Word. Having enjoined
upon all men to observe wisdom, He Himself hath
adhered to the cord of patience and resignation.
The clay clods of the world have set forth to visit the
embellished, the luminous, the crimson City of God, and
certain emissaries from Persia are secretly stirring up
mischief, though to outward seeming they pretend to be
gentle and meek. Gracious God! When will this world-afflicting
craftiness be transformed into sincerity? The exhortations
of God, the True One, have compassed the
world, but until now their influence hath not been disclosed.
Men's unseemly deeds have kept them back from
attaining unto Him. We entreat God--exalted and glorified
is He--to pour down, out of the clouds of divine grace, the
overflowing rain of His bounty upon all His servants.
Verily potent is He over all things.
O `Alí Haydar! O thou who hast risen to serve My
Cause and art engaged in magnifying the praise of God, the
Lord of the mighty throne! Unto the emblems of justice
and the exponents of equity it is indubitably clear and
evident that this Wronged One, strengthened by the
transcendent power of the Kingdom, is seeking to efface
from among the peoples and kindreds of the earth every
evidence of disorder, discord, dissension, differences or
divisions; and it is for no other reason but this great, this
momentous object that He hath again and again been cast
into prison and many a day and a night hath been subjected
to chains and fetters. Blessed are they that judge this
impregnable Cause, this glorious Announcement, with
fairness and equity.
