Explanation of Numbers 2      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-2. Revelation is made that each individual of the Spiritual Church has his specific position in his own heaven according to the general principles thereof.

Verse 3. There are four general principles, namely, celestial love, in Verse 3; faith from charity, Verse 10; the same in the natural degree, Verse 18; and the affirmation of truth in the natural degree, Verse 25.

Verses 3, 10, 18, 25. Their principles of action are as follows: Truth immediately proceeding from good; faith from charity which is the foundation of the church; obedience to truth from the love of good; and truth which aids, derived from Divine Truth which protects man in temptations.

Verse 17. All changes of state with the angels and with the man of the church are effected from the central principle of love.

Verses 4-32. The general quality, according to ordination and arrangement by the Lord, of those in the four leading divisions is described, as well as the quality of each division subordinate to these, and the quality of the whole heaven or of the whole church taken together.

Verse 33. But good itself, apart from truth, cannot be known as to its quality.

Verse 34. And thus the angels are always obedient to Divine Truth, or to the laws of Divine Order; and they become more and more perfected according to the ordination and arrangement of truths as depending on the state of good.
