Swedenborg's Theological Writings

Divine Providence

Divine Providence

Published in 1764, this volume continues Divine Love and Wisdom by showing how God governs human life and creation and describes the laws that provide for spiritual freedom.
I. The Divine Providence is the government of the Lord's Divine Love and Wisdom
II. The Lord's Divine Providence has as its end a Heaven from the Human Race
III. The Lord's Divine Providence looks in everything that it does to what is infinite and eternal.
IV. There are laws of Divine Providence that are unknown to men.
V. It is a law of Divine Providence that man should act from freedom according to reason.
VI. Man should put away evils as sints in the external man; and the Lord is able in theis way and in no other to put away evils in the internal man, and simultaneously in the external.

VII. Man should not be compelled by external means to think and will and thus to believe and love Divine things, but should guide himself and compel himself.
VIII. Man should be led and taught by the Lord from Heaven by means of the word, and this by all appearance as if by himself.
