Emanuel, S. (1758). Heaven and Hell. Retrieved from

Description: In Heaven and Hell the well known scientist Emanuel Swedenborg reveals in detail his visions concerning heaven, hell, and the world of spirits in between. In this work the author explains how each person will survive after death to enter the spiritual world, and describes details concerning the process of dying which were later confirmed in the twentieth century with the discovery of the Near Death Experience by the medical community. Most notably the author describes God as the Lord from Whom emanates a spiritual Sun, by which heaven receives its light, and by which all are judged after death. Heaven is a realm in which there is no space and no time, where societies are formed according to one's ruling love, and everyone's internal thoughts are revealed in a moment. Various degrees and societies of heaven are described, including the different functions of angels, the punishments of hell, and a description of the world of spirits between the heaven and hell which each person enters after separation from one's physical body. This book reveals that God's desire for each person is to have them grow and develop as an angel in the kingdom of heaven, which is a kingdom of being useful, where each spiritual being is perfected and made happier to eternity. His Divine mercy is for the salvation for the human race, and the only reason that hell exists is that the evil who worship the selfish ego prefer it to the mutual love of heaven. Therefore it is important to perform repentance and change one's life before one dies. This is volume 21 of the Hyperlinked Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg, available together in the multi-volume work, The Divine Revelation of the New Jerusalem. It has been formatted for digital publication: it includes a hyperlinked table of contents, hyperlinked references, extensive footnotes, and a hyperlinked topical index.
