New Jerusalem
Risti on vanhan kristillisen kirkon symboli, joka kuvaa kiusauksia
 ja kärsimystä, mutta Uuden Jerusalemin symboli on kruunu, 
joka kuvaa voittoa kiusauksista (lat. corona; Jes. 62:3).
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772).

"Vaimo, vaatetettu auringolla, ja 
kuu hänen jalkojensa alla,..".
 (Ilm. 12: 1).




I believe in One God, the Lord Jesus Christ, with His Divine Trinity, where the Father is His soul, the Son is His glorified Body, and the Holy Spirit is the Divinity flowing out of Him, as man has soul, body and action. He was born of the Father Jehovah God, inherited the body of an ordinary man from his mother Mary, but His soul was Jehovah God Himself. He stripped the body inherited from His mother in Crucifixion and took over the Divine Body from His Father Jehovah. He accepted the temptations, the attacks of hell, the last of which was Crucifixion, on His from mother inherited body. He defeated all hell, created a new heaven of good dead people and a new hell of evil dead people, and a new church, the Christian church. This was His Redemption by which He saved mankind from the power of hell. He is now the God of heaven and earth, Almighty and Omniscient and Omnipresent.
     After the Christian Church came under the power of hell, He performed the Last Judgement, which took place in the spiritual world in 1757. In it, He again defeated hell, created a new heaven and a new hell, and a new Christian church, the New Jerusalem, His eternal church on earth. With the help of His servant Emanuel Swedenborg of Sweden, he had him write the Heavenly Doctrine, which is His Second Coming. In Heavenly Doctrine, He revealed the inner meaning of God’s Word and the essence of heaven, the spiritual world, and hell, as well as a new Christian theology by which man can be reunited with God.
      According to Heavenly Doctrine, one unites with God when he believes in the Divine Trinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, repents, and lives the Ten Commandments. Repentance involves man examining his sins, confessing them to the Lord, apologizing to them, and beginning a life according to the Ten Commandments. In doing so, a person is forgiven of his sins. A person must also live in love of neighbour, which means that he must produce benefits for his fellow human beings. In doing all that, one unites with God and becomes in the image and likeness of God.
