An interview with a real angel from heaven

Heaven-Of-AngelsINTERVIEWER: “Hello everyone. Today we have a most special guest—a real angel from heaven.”  He addresses the guest: “I am glad that you have been allowed to materialize into a physical body and take my questions.”

ANGEL: “Actually your spiritual senses have been opened to see and hear me from heaven itself. In terms of my appearance, I have all the body parts you have, but they consist of spiritual substances instead of physical matter. I am communicating to you through pure ideas and thought. Your brain is merely downloading my ideas into your particular language. I don’t want your audience to think I only speak English.”

INTERVIEWER: “What would you like us to know about heaven?”

ANGEL: “Well, heaven is not a place you go to. It is something you become—from within. When people on earth die, they begin to remove themselves from the outer realm of physical spacetime and matter and enter a deeper world consisting of the psycho-spiritual qualities of their hearts and minds.”

INTERVIEWER: “Gee, that’s something quite foreign to my current worldview. How do people in the spiritual world detect different phenomena beyond the spacetime arena?”

ANGEL: “In heaven, distance is detected according to harmony or disharmony of the heart and mind. The more you love something, the closer you get to it. The more you hate something, the more you are repelled by it. Spacetime measurement and ratios have their origins in these psycho-spiritual qualities. And these qualities are all ultimately determined by one’s personal relationship with the Lord God.”

INTERVIEWER: “I am not sure I understand what you just said.”

ANGEL: “The Lord God is at the center of heaven much like the physical sun is at the center of the solar system. The big difference is that God’s love produces heat in the spiritual world and God’s wisdom produces the light by which angelic beings see. The human understanding is an unperfected function of this kind of inner sight. Orientation and distance comes from our relationship with this source of spiritual heat and light. What is most miraculous in the spiritual realm is that if we sincerely embrace God, no matter which way we may turn ourselves we keep God in front of us.”

INTERVIEWER: “Wow—that is even weirder than quantum physics! What surprises people the most when they enter the other world?”

ANGEL: “Even those with strong religious beliefs are truly surprised when they find they have actually survived death and continue to live. But that surprise is only the beginning—instead of having angels minister to their every need, they find angels challenging them.”

INTERVIEWER: “I thought angels were loving to all?”

ANGEL: “Yes, but if you had a loved one with gangrene in his or her leg, you would have it amputated. Everyone enters the spiritual world with some spiritual gangrene or moral evil. We angels have to try to remove this gangrenous character flaw or the individual will not obtain heaven. The process can be quite painful for those who have not experienced sincere introspection.”

INTERVIEWER: “But I thought that heaven is a realm of resplendent love.”

ANGEL: “In the spiritual world, a person can only gravitate to the level of what he or she loves and desires most. When we angels attempt to purge people of their less noble character, it is to help them adopt a superior level of love into their lives. People are shocked in the other world to find that moving closer to God can be painful. An analogy of this spiritual suffering can be made with getting gold out of mineral ore. This is accomplished by adding heat, which separates the valuable gold from the ore’s impurities. When we get closer to God we submit ourselves to this same purging process. Even the angels in the highest heaven have limits to how close they can get to the Creator-God.”

INTERVIEWER: “Does that mean that even angels have some impurities to deal with?”

ANGEL: “Great question. All angels would make a mad dash to hell if it weren’t for the Lord God’s constant mercy.”

INTERVIEWER: “But that means even angels do not possess innate goodness from themselves.”

ANGELS: “All angels come from the human race. Furthermore, all goodness comes from God alone. It is our individual challenge to become recipient forms of this love through humility.”

INTERVIEWR: “So people don’t have a good side?”

ANGEL: “Goodness comes from God. Period. End of story!”

INTERVIEWER: “Whose doctrinal teachings most represent the angelic view?”

ANGEL: “The theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. But we angels are finding that even those who have access to these writings ‘cherry-pick’ the teachings and leave out the hard parts.”

INTERVIEWER: “Explain.”

ANGEL: “Swedenborg’s writings stress the importance of good works and usefulness to obtain heavenly happiness. This is true. But people interpret this by thinking they simply need to add more goodness into their lives. Such people bypass the full process of spiritual purging in order to feel better about themselves. Unfortunately, being good and useful to others without such purging ‘gunks-up’ the whole process.”

INTERVIEWER: “What is your biggest regret?”

ANGEL: “That even well-meaning people confuse goodness and kindness with spiritual regeneration. Without spiritual purging, innocence is easily overlooked. I can assure you that God’s Heaven is a realm of innocence. Those who make this error will not attend any worship service that does not make them feel good about themselves or promote some degree of self-affirmation. We angels deplore such neediness.”

    Hi, I like your blog post here…. but have to say I disagree with your claim that ‘all angels come from the human race.’ don’t know too much about Swedenborg, but I simply cannot imagine that the whole angelic realm simply are humans elevated to a higher level of being. anyway, nice to meet you, god-guy! SB

      Well, unless you read Emanuel Swedenborg’s book “Heaven & Hell” there can be no real discussion about this topic. However, it is difficult to imagine angels without a human form. Thanks for your response!

      Spiritually yours,

    what do the angels have to say about incarnated angels? There is limited information about this, and the only source I keep finding is from Doreen Virtue. I can’t explain it, but more and more I have been informed that I am an angel living in a human existence. I would like to know more about this truth.
    Blessings +++

      Dear Kyashi,

      I would recommend you order Emanuel Swedenborg’s dynamic book “Heaven & Hell” (from the Swedenborg Foundation). In a nutshell, you are a spirit in a physical body. To become an angel in a physical body depends on your life choices!

      Spiritually yours,
