The Heavenly Doctrines
Welcome to the HEAVENLY DOCTRINES on the web. Written by
Swedenborg in the eighteenth century, these books contain the "Spirit of
Truth" spoken of by Jesus when He said,
have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when
He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He
will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak;
and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of
what is Mine and declare it to you." (John 16:12 - 14)
Heavenly Doctrines embody the Second Advent of the Lord God Jesus Christ
on Earth. They provide exposition of the Word of God in the Old and New
Testaments and explanations of the truth concerning the Lord Jesus Christ,
life continuing after death, salvation, damnation, temptation, reformation,
regeneration, heaven, hell, charity, faith, life, fullfilment of prophecy,
conjugial (marriage) love, creation and maintenance of the universe, Divine
Providence, and many other teachings relating to the life of religion.
