Pawns

As Shoghi Effendi has pointed out, (Shoghi Effendi, Citadel of Faith, p. 139-140), God’s Major Plan uses “both the mighty and the lowly as pawns in His world-shaping game, for the fulfilment of His immediate purpose and the eventual establishment of His Kingdom on earth.”
(The Universal House of Justice, Ridván 155, 1998, p. 3)


Of all the peoples of the world, “they alone can recognize, amidst the welter of a tempestuous age, the Hand of the Divine Redeemer that traces its course and controls its destinies.
(Universal House of Justice, 27 December 2005 to the Continental Boards of Counsellors)


The “building process,” to which they are consecrated, is “the one hope of a stricken society.” For, it is “actuated by the generating influence of God’s changeless Purpose, and is evolving within the framework of the Administrative Order of His Faith.”
(Universal House of Justice, 27 December 2005 to the Continental Boards of Counsellors)


… this latest move in His Own Major Plan, using both the mighty and lowly as pawns in His world-shaping game, for the fulfillment of His immediate purpose and the eventual establishment of His Kingdom on earth.
(Shoghi Effendi, Citadel of Faith, p. 146).
