(in The Revelation 21)
by The New Jerusalem
Embracing Answers to all Principal Objections
By Samuel Noble
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) wrote extensively how the
New Jerusalem indicated in The Revelation, Chapter 21, should be regarded
as a New Church, not a replacement Earth. This church, moreover, has already
begun, following reorganization of the spiritual world in the mid 1700s.
This spiritual rearrangement is responsible for the new freedoms of thought
and politics manifest since that time. Most importantly, Swedenborg's writings
have made available many new rational insights into the nature of spirituality
Samuel Noble explains and defends these new doctrines concerning the Second
Coming of the Lord, the resurrection, and the last judgement, and relates
them the principles of faith and life held by those that now call themselves
the New Church. This Church has a new understanding of the Trinity within
the Person Of The Lord Jesus Christ, as well as of his Atonement, Sacrifice,
and Mediation. He shows how this new framework yields a New Church Doctrine
of Life, a Doctrine of Genuine Holiness.
This is a new typesetting of the 13th edition of his "Appeal", the first
edition of which appeared in 1830.
