In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
People of the Lord! I wrote a few words of ‘revelation’ to you concerning a ‘Recorder’ who should be ‘eye-witness’ and also to ‘hear with his ears’ words ‘incomprehensible’ to the powers! ‘Hidden’ — that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. Blessed is he ‘who is’ before he came into being — ‘the seer, the hearer, the Scribe of Righteousness!’ I solemnly say unto you that none of the Prophets has written nor prophesied, save they ‘have spoken’ concerning this ‘Christ’ which I now certify, whose name is John, and who did not pass ‘the gates of death!’ Take care not to be misled, for he is ‘alive Today’ and on none by that name have We conferred ‘distinction’ before!
Truly, We do not know ‘the first!’ Where did the error come from? Or, where did the ‘words of deception’ come from? The ‘false pen of the scribes’ has turned it into a lie! All but killing him — ‘they shift the words of Scripture’ from their places, so that scarcely is ‘the Truth’ found. Speaking of things ‘to come’ as though they have already come. Not wishing him to be! They think: “Who is the wise man, that he may understand this? And who is he to whom the mouth of the Lord has spoken that he may tell it? Allah is blind to our ways, and if there should be a Christ, perhaps he will be deceived!” ….. They are in error!
Because of this, His Word ‘hid itself’ from everyone, and for ‘this cause’ has Allah promised me that the things I write shall be ‘kept and preserved!’ Therefore give heed to my words. I, a messenger whom Allah ‘had sent’ to pave the way for what you hear and see Today! Are not ‘your eyes’ set upon the Truth? This is the work of the Lord! Allah knows all the works of men; their imaginations, their thoughts, and their hearts!
The kings of the earth set themselves against Allah, and against His Anointed, that they might get ‘gain and glory’ of the world according to their own wills! They do not know Allah, Who holds the ‘issues of the soul’ within His Hands, for they say: “There is no God!” ….. “Who sees us?” ….. “Who knows us?” ….. “Who is our master?” ….. Never did one single sign among the ‘signs of their Lord’ come to them, but they turned away from it!
They seek not the Lord to establish ‘His Righteousness’ nor the scribes! They are friends of each other, and ‘authorities of darkness.’ Satan has ‘mastery’ over them! Conspiracy is ‘only of the devil’ and surely ‘swifter to plot’ is Allah. Allah is ‘Witness’ over all things, and ‘nowhere’ is there a secret counsel between three persons, but He is the fourth of them, nor fewer or more, but He is with them!
Whenever the Lord has given ‘a dispensation’ of the Priesthood to any man by ‘actual revelation’ — it became a law on earth and could not be annulled! You may think ‘this order’ of things to be ‘very particular’ but let me tell you that it is only to answer the will of Allah, by conforming to the ordinance and preparation that the Lord ordained, ‘before’ the foundation of the world!
Although men set ‘at naught’ the counsels of Allah, and despise His Words which were spoken by ‘the Holy Prophets’ — the works and designs, and the purposes of Allah ‘cannot be frustrated!’ Every age has a ‘term decreed’ and every term has ‘a Book!’ Allah blots out or establishes what He will, and men ‘must recognize’ His Power. Wherefore the Lord will proceed to ‘make bare His arm’ in the eyes of all the nations!
Behold, with ears open ‘the Censor’ comes, and ‘his eye’ sees every precious thing! That he may prove ‘His Truth’ to be ‘the truth’ and to ‘bring to naught’ that which is naught! The thing that is hid, he brings to light. Even as his Lord commanded him. He gave him authority to execute judgment, to bind up the Law, and purify you of Satan’s filth!
Doubt not, and harden not your hearts, that you may profit thereby, for there is nothing ‘hidden’ that shall not become manifest, and all of ‘the deficiency’ which appeared in the truth shall be dissolved! As Allah lives, in Whose presence my ‘soul stands’ — my words are true, though most men are unaware of this! Many are looking at this which I have written to you, but no one will be able to receive ‘without faith!’
Remember, Allah controls all things! Behold the ‘sun of Babylon’ has gone down, and now you shall discover the malice of our scribes and doctors. See how that which they ‘were forging’ has gone astray from them? These things they knew, but they became ‘blind and deaf’ — grudging that Allah should reveal His Grace on such of His Servants as He pleases! The wicked among them altered these words, and this is the restoration! Allah thus nullifies the schemes of the disbelievers!
Verily an age has passed, and now a great and marvelous work is about to come forth unto the Children of men, ‘written by the hand’ of Allah, a Book of Revelations ‘well expounded’ — of things that are, of things that were, of things that are to be, and this is not all! The Book of Life, and that of Records, shall be opened up! They shall be brought out of obscurity and out of darkness, and they shall go according to the will and pleasure of Allah!
Blessed is he who comes in the name of Allah! John, the Servant of Allah! With him is ‘the Essence’ of the Book, and on ‘His Law’ he meditates day and night. From henceforth ‘nothing’ shall be ‘corruptible!’ See you not these things? Do you not understand them? Such is that purpose of his and he will never rise from his seat ‘without dispelling the darkness.’ And the world will not receive ‘Truth’ any other way!
