THE DOCTRINE



THE NEW JERUSALEM

CONCERNING

THE LORD.



raE WHOLE SACRED SCRIPTURE TREATS OF THE LORD, AND THE L< )Kn

IS THE WORD.

1. We read in John, "In the beo;inning was the Word, and
the W^ord was with God, and God was the Word. The same
was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him ;
and without him was not any thing made that was made. In
him was life, and the life was the light of men : and the liglit
shinetli in darkness ; but the darkness comprehended it not."
Moreover, " The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the Only-begotten of
tlie Father, full of grace and truth " (chap. i. 1 — 5, 14). The
same Evangelist further adds, " Light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds
were evil " (chaj). iii. 19). And in another place, " While ye have
light believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on
me should not abide in darkness " (chap. xii. 36, 46). From these
passages it is evident, that the Lord is God from eternity, and
that this God is himself the Lord who was born in the world ;
for it is said, that the Word was with God, and God was the
Word : as, also, that without him was not any thing made that
was made : and again, that the Word was made flesh,
and they beheld him. Why the Lord is called the Word,
is but little understood in the church : he is however called the
Word, because the Word, signifles Divine Truth, or Divine
Wisdom ; and the Lord is Divine Truth itself, or Divine Wisdom
itself; for which reason he is likewise called the Light, which
also is said to have come into the world. Divine Wisdom and
Divine Love, constitute a one, and were from eternity a one in
13



1, 2 DOCrRINE OF THE NEW JERUSALEM

the Lord, wherefore it is said, "In him was life, and the hfe
was the light of men :" — Life is Divine Love, and Light is Di-
vine Wisdom. This oneness is what is meant by these words:
" Li the beginnmg — the Word was with God, and God was the
Word :" — with God, means to be in him ; for wisdom is in love,
and love in wisdom. So also in another place in John : "And
now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self, with the
glory which I had with thee, before the world was " (chap. xvii.
5^. With thy own self, means, in thyself: wheref >re it is
also said, and God was the Word : and elsewliere, that the
Lord is in the Father, and the Father in him, as well as, that
the Father and he are one. Now as the Word is the Divine
Wisdom of the Divine Love, it follows, that it is Jehovah him-
self, thus the Lord, by whom all things were made that are
made, for all things were created from the Divine Love by the
Divine Wisdom.

2. That the Word which is here specifically meant is the same
that was manifested by Moses, and the Proj)hets, and by the
Evangelists, may evidently appear from this consideration ; that
this is Divine Truth Itself, from which is derived all tlie wisdom
that exists with angels, and all spiritual intelligence with men.
For angels have in the heavens the very saine Word tliat men
have in the world, save only that with men it is natural, whereas,
in the heavens it is s])iritual. And since the AVord is Divine
Truth, it is also the Divine Proceeding, and this is not only
from the Lord but is also the Lord Himself. As this Word is
thus the Lord Himself, each and all [things] of tlie Word are
written in reference to liim alone : from Isaiah even toMalachi,
there is nothing given which is not concerning the Lord, or, in
the opjiosite sense, contrary to the Lord. That this is the case,
has not heretofore been seen by any one ; but yet every one may
see it, provided he is apprised of it, and thinks of it whilst he
is reading ; and is informed further, that in the word there is
not only a natural but also a spiritual sense ; and that in this
sense, by the names of persons and of places, is signified some-
thing of the Lord, and thence something of heaven aTid the
church from him, or something opposite thereto. Now as each
and all things of the Word have reference to the Lord ; and as
the Word, because it is Divine Truth, is the Lord ; it clearly
appears why it is said, " and the Word was made flesh, and
dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory ;" and also why it is
said, " While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be
the children of light. I am come a light into the world, that
whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness."
Light is the Divine Truth, — thus the Word : wherefore every
one, even at the present day, who, when reading the Word,
approaches the Lord alone, and prays to him, is enlightened
by it.
14



CONCERNING THE LORD. 3, 4.

3. We will here state, in a few words, what is declared con-
cerning the Lord, both in general and in particular, in all the
Pro|)hets of the Old Testament, from Isaiah unto Malachi.
I. That the Lord would come into the world in the fulness ol
time, which was, when he was no longer known by the Jews,
and when, consequently, there was nothing which constitutes a
churcii remaining ; and that unless he should then come into
the world and reveal himself, mankind would perish in eternal
death: as he himself says in John: "If ye believe not that I
am [he], ye shall die in your sins" (viii. 24). IL That the
Lord would come into the world to accomplish a last judgment,
and thereby to subjugate the then prevailing power of the hells;
which was to be effected by combats or by temptations ad-
mitted to assault the Human derived from the mother, and
by continual victories then obtained ; and that uidess the hells
should be so subjugated, no man could possibly be saved.
IIL That the Lord would come into the world to glorify his
Human, that is, to unite it to the Divine which was in him
by conce[)tion. IV. Tliat the Lord would come into the world
to establish a New Church, which should acknowledge him as
the Redeemer and Saviour, and by love and faith towards him
be redeemed and saved. V. That he would then also arrange
heaven in order, so that it, with the church, should constitute a
one. VI. That the passion of the cross would be the last com-
bat or temptation, by which he would fully conquer the hells,
and fully glorify his Human. — That the Word treats of no other
subjects, may be seen in the small treatise concerning the
Sacred Scriptures.

4. In conlirmation of this, I shall merely, in the first article,
adduce such passages from the AVord, as mention that day, ir,
that day, and in that time y in which, b}' day and time, are meant
the coming of the Lord. Thus in Isaiah: "And it shall come
to pass in the last days that the mountain of the house of
Jehovah shall be established in the top of the mountains."
" Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that dayT " The day of
Jeiiovah of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and
lofty." " In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver and his
idois of gold" (chap. ii. 2, 11, 1 2, 20). " In that day Jehovah
will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments" (chap.
iii. 18). " In that day shall the Branch of Jehovah be beautiful
and glorious" (chap, i v. 2). " /h that day they shall roar
against them like the roaring of the sea, and if one look unto
the land behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened
in the heavens thereof" (chap. v. 30). " And it shall come to
pass in that day that Jehovah shall hiss for the fl^' that is in the
uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt." " In the same day shall
Jehovah shave with a razor that is hired." " It shall come to
pass in that day that a man shall nourish a young cow and two

15



i DOCTKINE OF THE NEW JERUSALEM

sheep." " In that day it shall even be for briers and thorns"
(chap. vii. 18, 20, 21, 23). "And what will je do in the day o\
visitation, and in the desolation w^iich shall come from far?''
" III that day the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of
the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that
smote them, but shall stay upon Jehovah" (chap. x. 3, 20). " In
that day there shall be a root of Jesse which shall stand for an
ensign of the people ; to it shall the Gentiles seek, and his rest
shall be glorious." " In that day — Jehovah shall set his hand
again the second time to recover the remnant of his people"
(chap. xi. 10. 11). " In that day thou shalt say, O Jehovah, 1
will praise thee. " In that day shall ye say, Praise Jehovah,
call upon his name" (chap. xii. 1, 4). " Howl ye, for the day
of Jehovah is at hand, it shall come as a destruction from the
Almighty." " Behold, the day of Jehovah cometh, cruel both
with wrath and fierce anger." " I will shake the heavens, and
the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of Jehovah
of hosts, and in the day of his tierce anger." " Her time is near
to come, and her days shall not be prolonged" (chap. xiii. 6, 9,
13, 22). " In that day it shall come to pass that the glory of
Jacob shall be made thin." " At that day shall a man look to
his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of
Israel." " In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken
bough" (chap. xvii. 4, 7, 9). " And the inhabitants of this isle
shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation" (chap.
XX. 6). " In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak
the language of Canaan." "/;i that day shall there be an altar to
Jehovah in the midst of the land of Egypt." " In that day shall
there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria." " In that day shall
Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing
in the midst of the land" '(chap. xix. 18, 19, 23, 24). " For it is a
day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the
Lord Jehovah of hosts" (chap. xxii. 5). "/?i that day Jehovah
shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the
kings of the earth upon the earth." " And they shall be
gathered together as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and eh&ll
be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be
visited ; then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun
ashamed" (chap. xxiv. 21 — 28). " It shall be said in that day
Lo, this is our God, we have waited for him, and he will save
us" (chap. XXV. 9). " In that day shall this song be sung in
the land of Judah, We have a strong city" (chap. xxvi. 1).
" In that day Jehovah, with his sore, and great, and strong
sword, shall punish." " In that day sing ye unto her, A vine-
yard of red wine." " And it shall come to pass in that day that
the great trumpet shall be blown" (chap, xxvii. 1, 2, 13). "/n
that day shall Jehovah of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for
a diadem of beauty" (chap, xxviii. 5). " In that day shall the
16

deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shah
see out of obscurity, and out of darkness" (chap. xxix. 18)
"And there shall be'upon every high mountain and upon every
high hill, rivers, and streams of M'aters, in the day of the great
sUiughter, when the towei-8 fall : moreover, the light of the
mooc shall be as tiie light of the sun, &c., in the day that
Jehovah bindeth up tlie breach of his people" (chap. xxx. 25,
26). " In that day every man shall cast away his idols of
silver, and his idols of gold" (chap. xxxi. 7). " For it is the day
of Jeliovah's vengeance, the year of his recompences" (chap.
xxxiv. 8). '' These two things shall come to thee in a moment,
in one day ; the loss of children and widowhood" (chap, xlvii.
9). " Therefore my people shall know my name ; therefore
they shall know in that day, that I am he that doth speak,
behold it is I" (chap. lii. 6). "' Jehovah hath anointed me to
preach good tidings unto the meek; — to proclaim the accepta-
ble year of Jehovah, to comfort all that mourn" (chap. Ixi. 1,
2). " For the day of veno;eance is in my heart, and the year
of my redeemed is come" (chap. Ixiii. 4).

So in Jkremiah. " In those days, saith Jehovah, they shall
say no more, The ark of the covenant of Jehovah." " At that
time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of Jehovah." "/n
those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of
Israel" (chap. iii. 16 — 18). " At that day, saith Jehovah, the
heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes ; and
