Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 21. It is perceived that the Divine Love and Wisdom (the God of those regenerating) provide opportunities for them to enter into the heavenly state. The soul must make use of them and strive to obtain it, according to the perception given to those who are in good from the Divine Love and Wisdom; it must not doubt the possibility of overcoming evil or be discouraged by it. [Note.—It is the doctrine of the New Church that the Lord Jesus Christ is the embodiment of the Divine Love and Wisdom; so that whether we say the Lord Jesus Christ is the God of those regenerating or the Divine Love and Wisdom, it is the same thing.]
