Islands      

By New Christian Bible Study Staff

← 이전   다음 →

Islands' signify the natural mind, or the natural human, regarding truths and falsities.

(참조: The Apocalypse Explained 406)


People who are steeped in the internal sense of the Word, such as angels, do not know what islands are, because they no longer have any concept of such places. Instead they have a perception of more remote worship, like the gentiles outside the church.

(참조: Arcana Coelestia 1158)


When 'islands' are contrasted to 'earth' or 'mountains,' they signify the truths of faith, because they are in the sea. They signify doctrinal things which are rituals.

(참조: Arcana Coelestia 1158)


'Islands,' In Ezekiel 27:6, signify those in the church who are in a natural state, but are nevertheless rational.

(참조: Ezekiel 27:6; The Apocalypse Explained 1146)


Islands' signify those who are in truths, and 'people from afar,' as in Isaiah 49:1, signify those who are in goods, and abstractedly truths and goods, both in the natural self.

(참조: Isaiah 49:1; The Apocalypse Explained 406)


'Islands' signify peoples who are more remote from the worship of God, but will still consent to it.

(참조: Apocalypse Revealed 34)
