The angels taken collectively are called heaven,
for they constitute heaven; and yet that which makes
heaven in general and in particular is the Divine that
goes forth from the Lord and flows into the angels and is received by them.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

And as the Divine that goes forth from the Lord is
the good of love and the truth of faith,
the angels are angels and are heaven in the measure
in which they receive good and truth from the Lord.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

Man was so created by the Lord as to be able while
living in the body to speak with spirits and angels,
as in fact was done in the most ancient times;
for,
being a spirit clothed with a body, he is one with them.

that goes forth from the Lord,
and others that receive it less interiorly;
the former are called celestial angels,
and the latter spiritual angels.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

For the spiritual sense of the Word treats everywhere of the spiritual world,
that is, of the state of the church in the heavens,
as well as in the earth; hence the Word is spiritual and Divine.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

That every man after the life in the world lives to eternity,
is evident from this, that man is then spiritual,
and no longer natural, and that the spiritual man,
separated from the natural, remains such as he is to eternity,
for man's state cannot be changed after death.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

That all who have ever been born men from the beginning of creation,
and are deceased, are either in heaven or in hell,
follows from those things which have been said and
shown in the preceding article,
namely, that Heaven and Hell are from the human race.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

Moreover, no one is judged from the natural man,
thus not so long as he lives in the natural world,
for man is then in a natural body; but everyone is
judged in the spiritual man,
and therefore when he comes into the spiritual world,
for man is then in a spiritual body.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

he is with respect to love and faith,
for everyone in the spiritual world is the effigy of his own love,
not only as to the face and the body,
but also as to the speech and the actions.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

possibly speak with spirits and angels so long as he lives in the body;
and many will say that it is all fancy,
others that I relate such things in order to gain credence,
and others will make other objections.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

In the Christian world...
it is believed that angels were created at the beginning,
and that heaven was formed of them; and that the Devil
or Satan was an angel of light,
who, becoming rebellions, was cast down with his crew,
and that this was the origin of hell.
- Emanuel Swedenborg

For in every particular of the Word there is an internal
sense which treats of things spiritual and heavenly,
not of things natural and worldly, such as are treated
of in the sense of the letter.
