Preparing The Heart
Preparing the Heart

"O Thou Remnant of God! I have sacrificed myself wholly for Thee; I have accepted curses for Thy sake, and have yearned for naught but martyrdom in the path of Thy love."
The Bab12

The knowledge of His fate
did not deter God's Gate3
from preparing
the soil of the human heart
for the coming of Him Whom God Shall Make Manifest.4

He saw
humanity united
in the Arc of God's ancient covenant,
and living in a new heaven and on a new Earth.
