Say: The sword of wisdom is hotter than summer heat, and sharper than blades of steel, if ye do but understand.

The spiritual world and the physical one are governed by parallel laws. The comment below by Bahá’u’lláh about the physical world has its counterpart in the spiritual one: action in teaching the Word of God results in the generation of a creative impulse that leads people to find their true spiritual selves and be reborn in the spirit.

That which hath been in existence had existed before, but not in the form thou seest today. The world of existence came into being through the heat generated from the interaction between the active force and that which is its recipient. These two are the same, yet they are different. Thus doth the Great Announcement inform thee about this glorious structure. Such as communicate the generating influence and such as receive its impact are indeed created through the irresistible Word of God which is the Cause of the entire creation, while all else besides His Word are but the creatures and the effects thereof. Verily thy Lord is the Expounder, the All-Wise.

                                                                                          Bahá’u’lláh

Were it not for the cold, how would the heat of Thy words prevail, O Expounder of the worlds?

                                                                                          Bahá’u’lláh
