“O thou who hath advanced to the Kingdom of his…”

O thou who hath advanced to the Kingdom of his Lord, the Glorious!
Know thou that the Kingdom of God hath pitched its tents, hoisted its banner and uplifted its pavilions in this extensive space. The hosts of the angels of God have come down with standards of signs; marched off towards all horizons; opened the cities of the hearts of the servants by the power of thy Lord, the Generous; and have blown the great trumpet. The Holy Spirit hath freely given eternal life to every pure heart, and the souls became attracted through the effulgence of the Beauty of the Glorious Kingdom and through the brilliancy of the Light of Truth over all regions. The clamor of the spiritual people hath risen with praise and glory to God, the All-glorious!
As to thee, thank thou thy Lord for that He hath 638 enabled to see the signs of His Kingdom in this wonderful day. Arise to serve the Cause of thy Lord and devote thyself to God’s service as a penitent servant.
