Chapter 41

References on "Tablet of God" - the revealed word of God.

O King of Berlin! Give ear unto the Voice calling from this manifest Temple:
Verily, there is none other God but Me, the Everlasting, the Peerless, the
Ancient of Days. Take heed lest pride debar thee from recognizing the
Dayspring of Divine Revelation, lest earthly desires shut thee out, as by
a veil, from the Lord of the Throne above and of the earth below. Thus
counselleth thee the Pen of the Most High. He, verily, is the Most Gracious,
the All-Bountiful. Do thou remember the one whose power transcended thy
power (Napoleon III), and whose station excelled thy station. Where is he?
Whither are gone the things he possessed? Take warning, and be not of them
that are fast asleep. He it was who cast the Tablet of God behind him, when
We made known unto him what the hosts of tyranny had caused Us to suffer.
Wherefore, disgrace assailed him from all sides, and he went down to dust in
great loss. Think deeply, O King, concerning him, and concerning them who,
like unto thee, have conquered cities and ruled over men. The All-Merciful
brought them down from their palaces to their graves. Be warned, be of them
who reflect... O banks of the Rhine! We have seen you covered with gore,
inasmuch as the swords of retribution were drawn against you; and you shall
have another turn. And We hear the lamentations of Berlin, though she be
today in conspicuous glory.
-- Bahá'u'lláh, Proclamation of Bahá'u'lláh, p. 39

O concourse of patriarchs! He Whom ye were promised in the Tablets is come.
Fear God, and follow not the vain imaginings of the superstitious. Lay aside
the things ye possess, and take fast hold of the Tablet of God by His
sovereign power. Better is this for you than all your possessions. Unto this
testifieth every understanding heart, and every man of insight. Pride ye
yourselves on My Name and yet shut yourselves out as by a veil from Me? This
indeed is a strange thing!
-- Bahá'u'lláh, Proclamation of Bahá'u'lláh, p. 92
