Process of progressive Revelation

Contemplate with thine inward eye the chain of successive Revelations that hath linked the Manifestation of Adam with that of the Báb. I testify before God that each one of these Manifestations hath been sent down through the operation of the Divine Will and Purpose ...
The measure of the Revelation with which every one of them hath been identified had been definitely fore-ordained. This, verily, is a token of  Our favor unto them, if ye be of those that comprehend this truth….
And when this process of progressive Revelation culminated in the stage at which His peerless, His most sacred, and exalted Countenance was to be unveiled to men’s eyes, He chose to hide His own Self behind a thousand veils, lest profane and mortal eyes discover His glory.
