Drink thou the life-giving water of blissful joy from the chalice of utterance proffered by the Fountainhead of divine Revelation—He Who hath made mention of thee in this mighty stronghold.
Endeavor to the utmost of thy powers to establish the word of truth with eloquence and wisdom and to dispel falsehood from the face of the earth.
Thus directeth thee the Dayspring of divine knowledge from this luminous horizon. Consider the people and the things they have wrought in My days. As regards thine assertions about the beginning of creation, this is a matter on which conceptions vary by reason of the divergences in men’s thoughts and opinions.
We revealed unto one of the rulers that which overpowereth all the dwellers of the earth, and requested him to bring Us face to face with the learned men of this age, that We might set forth for him the testimony of God, His proofs, His glory and His majesty; and naught did We intend thereby but the highest good. In such circumstances as thou seest, how can the Celestial Bird soar into the atmosphere of divine mysteries when its wings have been battered with the stones of idle fancy and bitter hatred, and it is cast into a prison built of unyielding stone? Wert thou to assert that it hath ever existed and shall continue to exist, it would be true; or wert thou to affirm the same concept as is mentioned in the sacred Scriptures, no doubt would there be about it, for it hath been revealed by God, the Lord of the worlds. This is a station that can never be described nor even alluded to.
Man’s merit lieth in service and virtue and not in the pageantry of wealth and riches.
None of this added data is anything but based on my personal, fallible opinion though it attempts to be informed by modern academic research.
Beware lest ye sow tares of dissension among men or plant thorns of doubt in pure and radiant hearts. Commit not that which defileth the limpid stream of love or destroyeth the sweet fragrance of friendship. Ye were created to show love one to another and not perversity and rancor.
Take pride not in love for yourselves but in love for your fellow-creatures.
We exhort mankind in these days when the countenance of Justice is soiled with dust, when the flames of unbelief are burning high and the robe of wisdom rent asunder, when tranquility and faithfulness have ebbed away and trials and tribulations have waxed severe, when covenants are broken and ties are severed, when no man knoweth how to discern light and darkness or to distinguish guidance from error.'  O peoples of the world! Strive to be shining examples unto all mankind, and true reminders of the virtues of God amidst men.
He that riseth to serve My Cause should manifest My wisdom, and bend every effort to banish ignorance from the earth. Let each morn be better than its eve and each morrow richer than its yesterday.
