“ALL men have proceeded from God and unto Him shall …”

ALL men have proceeded from God and unto Him shall all return. All shall appear before Him for judgement. He is the Lord of the Day of Resurrection, of Regeneration and of Reckoning, and His revealed Word is the Balance.
True death is realized when a person dieth to himself at the time of His Revelation in such wise that he seeketh naught except Him. 158
True resurrection from the sepulchres means to be quickened in conformity with His Will, through the power of His utterance.
Paradise is attainment of His good-pleasure and everlasting hell-fire His judgement through justice.
The Day He revealeth Himself is Resurrection Day which shall last as long as He ordaineth.
Everything belongeth unto Him and is fashioned by Him. All besides Him are His creatures.
