Verse 14:1. The Word teaches, that man ought to look inwards towards the Lord in his Divine Humanity, for a refuge against evils.
Verse 14:2. And to believe that heaven is distinguished into in numerable societies, according to all the discriminations of good and truth, and that every one has a place there, according to the conjunction of those principles in his mind and life.
Verse 14:3. And to believe further, that according to the conjunction of those principles in the mind and life, every man has eternal conjunction of life with the Lord himself.
Verses 14:4, 5. Because according to the conjunction of those principles, every one has knowledge concerning the glorification of the Lord's humanity, and the process by which it was effected, although this knowledge seems to be concealed from him.
Verse 14:6. For in that glorification, and the process by which it was effected, is contained the all of doctrine, together with its truth and life, by which alone introduction is given to the supreme good.
Verse 14:7. Consequently the knowledge of the Lord in His Divine Humanity involves in it the knowledge of his essential divinity, and therefore faith in the visible humanity renders the divinity visible at the same time.
Verse 14:8. This reasoning however seems obscure to those in the church, who are principled in the intelligence of truth, and therefore they seek further instruction concerning the hidden divinity.
Verses 14:9, 10, 11. And are further taught, that whoever had faith in the visible Divine Humanity, has faith also in the invisible Divinity, since the Divinity and Humanity are mutually and reciprocally united, like soul and body, so that the humanity both thinks and operates from the divinity which is one with it.
Verse 14:12. Whosoever also has faith in the visible Divine Humanity, operates not only from truth in the understanding, but from the good of love and charity in the will, through the power supplied from that humanity made divine.
Verses 14:13, 14. And thus, inasmuch as he addresses himself immediately to the Lord in His Divine Humanity, all His prayers are granted, because the divinity is one with that humanity.
Verses 14:15, 16, and part of 17. He is also instructed that to love the Lord is to live according to His divine precepts, in which case the Lord in His Divine Humanity imparts all heavenly good and truth, and this to eternity.
Verses latter part of 17, 18. Which good and truth cannot be received by those who are in evil, but by those who are principled in faith and love, and who consequently have good and truth continually communicated to them from the Lord in His Divine Humanity.
Verses 14:19, 20. So that whereas they, who are in evil, have no faith in the Lord, they on the other hand, who are principled in faith and love, enjoy his continual presence, as a fountain of truth in their understandings, and of heavenly love in their wills, and thus have reciprocal conjunction of life with Him.
Verses 14:21, 22, 23, 24. For to love the Lord is to live according to His precepts, and they who so love are loved in return by the Lord, who dwells in His own Word in the interiors of such, and thus makes them the everlasting habitations of His truth and love.
Verses 14:25, 26, 27. Instructing them first by the letter of His Word, and afterwards by its spirit, or spiritual sense, in which is contained the all of truth and good, thus the all of internal peace, by which power is given over all spiritual temptations.
Verses 14:28, 29. And instructing them further, that true charity rejoices in the idea of the Lord's glorification, or of the union of divine truth with divine good, since truth derives from good all that it has, or is, and all proper faith results from the accomplishment of their predicted union.
Verses 14:30, 31. Nevertheless the union cannot be accomplished without temptation combats arising from the powers of darkness, by virtue of which the divine love of the Lord is manifested in all its fullness and purity, calling mankind to elevation of their affections by departing from all contrary love.
