O thou who art waiting for the Appearance of the Kingdom!
Glad-tidings be unto thee, for the Kingdom of God hath raised its tent and tabernacle upon the apex of the world, the standard of the Kingdom is hoisted, the call of the Kingdom is sent forth and the hosts of the Kingdom have appeared.
Therefore, there are many fortresses and castles of 668 hearts which are conquered and many regions of spirits which are subdued. The lights of the Kingdom have shone forth from the horizon of the East and West. Praise be to God! that thou hast entered therein and hast received manifest outpouring from the Most Great Beauty.
Although thou art old in age, yet thou art young in spirit and have freshness and vivacity, vigor and strength, beauty and sweetness. Thank thou God for this.
