“O thou seeing one!…”

O thou seeing one!
Know thou, verily, God hath preferred the insight to the sight, because the sight seeth the material things, 605 while the insight apprehendeth the spiritual. The former witnesseth the earthly world, while the latter seeth the world of the Kingdom. The former’s judgment is temporary, while the latter’s vision is everlasting. Thou shalt soon behold the Kingdom of God and its mysteries and the signs of God and the lights of His great Realm of Divinity!
