“SHOULD it be Our wish, it is in Our power to compel, …”

SHOULD it be Our wish, it is in Our power to compel, through the agency of but one letter of Our Revelation, the world and all that is therein to recognize, in less than the twinkling of an eye, the truth of Our Cause….
Truly other apostles have been laughed to scorn before Thee, 1 and Thou art none other but the Servant of God, sustained by the power of Truth. Ere long We shall prolong the days of such as have rejected the Truth by reason of that which their hands have wrought, 2 and verily God will not deal unjustly with anyone, even to the extent of a speck on a date-stone. Chapter LXXXVII.
