“O thou who hast prayed to the Kingdom of God!…”

O thou who hast prayed to the Kingdom of God!
I have read thy letter and I have taken knowledge of God as to thy conduct towards the Kingdom of God and also thy conflagration with the fire of God’s love. Be reassured by the grace of thy Lord and direct thyself towards Him.
Consider attentively and with assiduity in the New 478 Testament, as well as the Bible, and thou shalt find new significances, very clear of this great Manifestation.
I declare by the just God that thou wilt see therein a revelation of the Holy Spirit which will aid thee in the good understanding of the Truth and the mysteries and significances of the Books of God, the All-powerful and the Eternal.
Then as to what thou hast asked me for pious people who died before they heard the Voice of this Manifestation. Listen: Those who have mounted to God before hearing the Voice, if they followed the rules of conduct as laid down by Jesus and always walked in the straight path, they have obtained this Dazzling Light after their rising to the Kingdom of God. I pray God to lift the veil for thee and to corroborate by the spirit of experience, so that all may be evident to thee, by the Holy Spirit of God.
I implore God to give thee indication of good conduct in the way of salvation, as a guiding lamp lighted from the fire of God’s Love, and to cause thee to be called in His Name by the multitude of the world, so that the Name of God shall be proclaimed in all far off countries.
Give my compliments and my praises to thy estimable husband; my greeting and praise to thee.
