3916. About parables

I remember having heard on one occasion the speech of angels and of angelic spirits having fallen into parables, something that I did not take notice of at the time; also that it fell into portrayals of gardens, such as a garden of fig trees, and others, in dreams; also on occasion into [visions of] feasts, so that I would see people eating together - this several times - all of which I am permitted to mention here so that it may be known that the mental imagery of angels and angelic spirits have been portrayed in this way, thus falling into parables, gardens, and feasts, about which the Lord so often spoke, and to which He figuratively compared heaven. 1748, 9 Nov.
