Emanuel Swedenborg Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg

I hope you like these Emanuel Swedenborg quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

The angels taken collectively are called heaven,
for they constitute heaven; and yet that which makes
heaven in general and in particular is the Divine that
goes forth from the Lord and flows into the angels and is received by them.

separated from the natural, remains such as he is to eternity,
for man's state cannot be changed after death.

I have often talked with angels on this subject,
and they have invariably declared that in heaven they
are unable to divide the Divine into three,
because they know and perceive that the Divine is One
and this One is in the Lord.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

True charity is the desire to be useful to others with
no thought of recompense.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

That all who have ever been born men from the beginning of creation,
and are deceased, are either in heaven or in hell,
follows from those things which have been said and
shown in the preceding article,
namely, that Heaven and Hell are from the human race.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

He who is in evil, is also in the punishment of evil.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

For the judgment was accomplished not only upon all
the men of the Christian church,
but also upon all who are called Mohammedans,

In the Christian world...
it is believed that angels were created at the beginning,

who, becoming rebellions, was cast down with his crew,
and that this was the origin of hell.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

There are angels that receive more interiorly the Divine
that goes forth from the Lord,
and others that receive it less interiorly;
the former are called celestial angels,
and the latter spiritual angels.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

and moreover the separation of the good from the evil,
is visitation; and the good are then removed,
and the evil are left behind.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

The quality of the Lord's church on earth,
cannot be seen by any man, so long as he lives in the world,

- Emanuel Swedenborg

Man was so created by the Lord as to be able while
living in the body to speak with spirits and angels,
as in fact was done in the most ancient times;

- Emanuel Swedenborg

This Divine truth flows into heaven from the Lord from His Divine love.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

And as the Divine that goes forth from the Lord is
the good of love and the truth of faith,
the angels are angels and are heaven in the measure
in which they receive good and truth from the Lord.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

I am well aware that many will say that no one can
possibly speak with spirits and angels so long as he lives in the body;
and many will say that it is all fancy,
others that I relate such things in order to gain credence,
and others will make other objections.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

Moreover, no one is judged from the natural man,
thus not so long as he lives in the natural world,
for man is then in a natural body; but everyone is
judged in the spiritual man,
and therefore when he comes into the spiritual world,
for man is then in a spiritual body.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

In the spiritual body moreover, man appears such as
he is with respect to love and faith,
for everyone in the spiritual world is the effigy of his own love,
not only as to the face and the body,
but also as to the speech and the actions.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

is because man was last created, and that which is
last created is the basis of all that precedes.

sense which treats of things spiritual and heavenly,
not of things natural and worldly, such as are treated
of in the sense of the letter.

For the spiritual sense of the Word treats everywhere of the spiritual world,
that is, of the state of the church in the heavens,
as well as in the earth; hence the Word is spiritual and Divine.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

If you listen, you will hear the music.
It is the song of angels.

Listen to the melody within your soul.
