Be united, O Kings of the earth, for thereby will the tempest of discord be stilled amongst you, and your people find rest, if ye be of them that comprehend.  Should any one among you take up arms against another, rise ye all against him, for this is naught but manifest justice.

The one true God, exalted be His glory, hath ever regarded,...”

The one true God, exalted be His glory, hath ever regarded, and will continue to regard, the hearts of men as His own, His exclusive possession.  All else, whether pertaining to land or sea, whether riches or glory, He hath bequeathed unto the kings and rulers of the earth.  From the beginning that hath no beginning the ensign proclaiming the words ’He doeth whatsoever He willeth’ hath been unfurled in all its splendour before His Manifestation.  What mankind needeth in this day is obedience unto them that are in authority, and a faithful adherence to the cord of wisdom.  The instruments which are essential to the immediate protection, the security and assurance of the human race have been entrusted to the hands, and lie in the grasp, of the governors of human society.  This is the wish of God and His decree....  We cherish the hope that one of the kings of the earth will, for the sake of God, arise for the triumph of this wronged, this oppressed people.  Such a king will be eternally extolled and glorified.  God hath prescribed unto this people the duty of aiding whosoever will aid them, of serving his best interests, and of demonstrating to him their abiding loyalty.  They who follow Me must strive, under all circumstances, to promote the welfare of whosoever will arise for the triumph of My Cause, and must at all times prove their devotion and fidelity unto him.  Happy is the man that hearkeneth and observeth My counsel.  Woe unto him that faileth to fulfil My wish.

NAPOLEON III

O king of Paris!  Tell the priest to ring the bells no longer.  By God, the True One!  The Most Mighty Bell hath appeared in the form of Him Who is the Most Great Name, and the fingers of the will of Thy Lord, the Most Exalted, the Most High, toll it out in the heaven of Immortality, in His name, the All-Glorious.  Thus have the mighty verses of Thy Lord been again sent down unto thee, that thou mayest arise to remember God, the Creator of earth and heaven, in these days when all the tribes of the earth have mourned, and the foundations of the cities have trembled, and the dust of irreligion hath enwrapped all men, except such as God, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise, was pleased to spare.  Say:  He Who is the Unconditioned is come, in the clouds of light, that He may quicken all created things with the breeze of His Name, the Most Merciful, and unify the world, and gather all men around this Table which hath been sent down from heaven.  Beware that ye deny not the favour of God after it hath been sent down unto you.  Better is this for you than that which ye possess; for that which is yours perisheth, whilst that which is with God endureth.  He, in truth, ordaineth what He pleaseth.  Verily, the breezes of forgiveness have been wafted from the direction of your Lord, the God of Mercy; whoso turneth thereunto, shall be cleansed of his sins, and of all pain and sickness.  Happy the man that hath turned towards them, and woe betide him that hath turned aside.
