The Thundered Word

I am that supreme and fiery force that sends forth all living sparks.

Death hath no part in me, yet I bestow death, wherefore I am girt about with wisdom as with wings…

I am the source of the thundered word by which all creatures were made, I permeate all things that they may not die.

I am life.
