30. (iv) The salvation of the sheep. When the Last Judgment was completed there was joy in heaven and such an increase of light in the world of spirits as never before. There is a description of what the joy in heaven was like after the dragon was cast down in Revelation (12:10-12). The light in the world of spirits was due to the removal of those hellish communities which had come between like clouds overshadowing the earth. A similar light also dawned on people in the world, bringing them a new enlightenment.
