God’s glory transcends a beautiful sunset

sunset_over_mountains-2497Some people often look at the beauty of nature as evidence for the existence of a loving Creator-God, such as a beautiful mountaintop sunset.

But scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg wrote dozens of books illustrating the ever-deeper levels of Divine beauty. He provided evidence that the Lord God’s Word contained beauty that surpasses the powers of the human eye.

Swedenborg claimed that the time had come where the heavenly Creator was ready to reveal new realities of beauty to the human race. These revelations would embrace new concepts concerning God, human salvation and the inner structure of Holy Scripture.

For instance, the mystery of the seven stars in the Lord’s right hand, the seven golden lampstands and the seven churches mentioned in the Apocalypse (Chapter 1, vers. 17-20) represent all the truth from goodness and angelic love that will belong to a new heaven and church (earth) currently being established by the Divine intent.

Beyond this newly revealed inner depth of meaning, Swedenborg alluded to another revelation which is yet to come—that these seven principles of truth from heavenly goodness comprised a series of events that cohered into a shared trajectory as to their end and conclusion.

This sevenfold trajectory is called the Divine proceeding. That is, the law by which God’s action manifests into comprehensive wholes (relational holism).

I have provided some examples of this Heavenly patterning principle in my book, Proving God, so that you can get a taste of what God has planned for your future understanding of ultimate reality!

These new revelations will be a world-changer for both science and religion!
