1 På den tiden skall Mikael träda upp, den store fursten som står såsom försvarare för dina landsmän; och då kommer en tid av nöd, vars like icke har funnits, allt ifrån den dag då människor blevo till och ända till den tiden. Men på den tiden skola av ditt folk alla de varda frälsta, som finnas skrivna i boken.

2 Och många av dem som sova i mullen skola uppvakna, somliga till evigt liv, och somliga till smälek och evig blygd.

3 De förståndiga skola då lysa, såsom fästet lyser, och de som hava fört de många till rättfärdighet såsom stjärnor, alltid och evinnerligen.

4 Men du, Daniel, må gömma dessa ord och försegla denna skrift intill ändens tid; många komma att rannsaka den, och insikten skall så växa till.»

5 När nu jag, Daniel, såg till, fick jag se två andra stå där, en på flodens ena strand, och en på dess andra strand.

6 Och en av dem sade till mannen som var klädd i linnekläder, och som stod ovanför flodens vatten: »Huru länge dröjer det, innan änden kommer med dessa förunderliga ting?»

7 Och jag hörde på mannen som var klädd i linnekläder, och som stod ovanför flodens vatten, och han lyfte sin högra hand och sin vänstra hand upp mot himmelen och svor vid honom som lever evinnerligen att efter en tid, och tider, och en halv tid, och när det heliga folkets makt hade blivit krossad i grund, då skulle allt detta varda fullbordat.

8 Och jag hörde detta, men förstod det icke; och jag frågade: »Min herre, vad bliver slutet på allt detta?»

9 Då sade han: »Gå, Daniel, ty dessa ord skola förbliva gömda och förseglade intill ändens tid.

10 Många skola varda renade och tvagna och luttrade, men de ogudaktiga skola öva sin ogudaktighet, och ingen ogudaktig skall förstå detta; men de förståndiga skola förstå det.

11 Och från den tid då det dagliga offret bliver avskaffat och förödelsens styggelse uppställd skola ett tusen två hundra nittio dagar förgå.

12 Säll är den som förbidar och hinner fram till ett tusen tre hundra trettiofem dagar.

13 Men gå du åstad mot ändens tid; sedan du har vilat, skall du uppstå till din del, vid dagarnas ände.»

61. I have been granted the opportunity to talk with any number of individuals after their death who had believed they were going to shine like stars in heaven because, they said, they had revered the Word, had read it through time and again, and had gained much from their reading that served to support the dogmas of their faith. All this led to their being celebrated as scholars, which in turn led them to believe they would become Michaels and Raphaels.

(Odkazy: Daniel 12:3)


[2] However, many of them were examined to find out what love had inspired their study of the Word, and it turned out that for some it was self-infatuation, a desire to look important in the eyes of the world and therefore be revered as leaders in the church, while for others it was worldliness and a desire for wealth. When they were asked what they had learned from the Word, it turned out that they knew nothing that was really true. All they knew was distorted truth, which is essentially false. They were told that this was because they themselves and the world were their goals - or were what they loved the most, which amounts to the same thing - and not the Lord and heaven. If ourselves and the world are our goals, then when we read the Word our minds are stuck on ourselves and the world. This means that our thinking is constantly focused on our self-importance, which is in darkness with respect to everything that has to do with heaven. People in this state cannot be lifted out of their self-infatuation by the Lord and thus raised up into heaven’s light, so they are not open to any inflow from the Lord through heaven, either.

[3] I have seen them let into heaven, but when it was found that they were lacking in truths, they were expelled. Even so, they retained the prideful conviction that they were worthy.

It worked out otherwise for individuals who studied the Word from a desire to know what was true because it was true and because it could be put to use in their lives not only for their own benefit but for the benefit of their neighbor. I have seen them raised up into heaven and therefore into the light of divine truth there; and at the same time they have been lifted up into angelic wisdom and into its happiness, which is eternal life.

256. 3. Strict materialists justify their rejection of divine providence when they see that Christianity is restricted to that smaller part of the inhabited world that we call Europe, and even there is divided. The reason Christianity is found only in that smaller part of the habitable world called Europe is that it is not suited to the character of people of the Middle East the way Islam is, Islam being a kind of compound religion, as already noted [255]. Any religion that is not suitable is not accepted. For example, a religion that prohibits marrying more than one wife will not be accepted but rejected by people who have been polygamists for centuries; and the same principle applies to other practices mandated by Christianity.

[2] It does not matter whether a larger or a smaller part of the world accepts a religion as long as there are people who have the Word, since there is still light from them to people who are outside the church and do not have the Word. This has been explained in Teachings for the New Jerusalem on Sacred Scripture 104-113. Strange as it may seem, wherever the Word is read reverently and the Lord is worshiped because of the Word, the Lord is present along with heaven. This is because the Lord is the Word, and the Word is that divine truth that makes heaven what it is. This is why the Lord says, "Wherever two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in their midst" (Matthew 18:20). This can be done with the Word by Europeans, then, in many places in the habitable world, because Europeans are in business all around the world and are either reading the Word or teaching from it everywhere. It may seem as though I am making this up, but it is true.

[3] The reason Christianity is divided is that it is based on the Word, and the Word is composed entirely of correspondential imagery. For the most part, these images are semblances of truth that contain hidden genuine truth. Since the church must necessarily derive its teaching from the literal meaning of the Word, and that meaning is of this nature, it is inevitable that there should be quarrels and arguments and dissent in the church especially about the interpretation of the Word, though not about the Word itself or the divine nature of the Lord himself. It is universally believed that the Word is holy and that the Lord is divine, and these two beliefs are essential features of the church. This means that people who deny the Lord's divine nature, the ones called Socinians, are excommunicated by the church, while people who deny the holiness of the Word are not even considered Christians.

I may add at this point something striking about the Word, something that points to the conclusion that inwardly the Word is divine truth itself, and that at its very heart it is the Lord.

[4] When spirits open the Word and rub it against their face or clothing, then simply from this touch their faces or clothing glow as brightly as the moon or a star. Everyone they meet can see this. This is a witness to the fact that nothing in the world is more holy than the Word.

On the Word being composed entirely of correspondential imagery, see Teachings for the New Jerusalem on Sacred Scripture 5-26; on the need to draw and corroborate the teaching of the church from the literal meaning of the Word, see Teachings for the New Jerusalem on Sacred Scripture 50-61 of that work; on the fact that it is possible to get heresies from the literal meaning of the Word but harmful to validate them, see Teachings for the New Jerusalem on Sacred Scripture 91-97; and on the church being derived from the Word, with its quality determined by its understanding of the Word, see Teachings for the New Jerusalem on Sacred Scripture 76-79.
