De Domino (Whitehead) n. 1

1. Preface

A revelation has been made by the Lord concerning heaven and hell, concerning the Last Judgment which has been accomplished, concerning the spiritual sense of the Word; thus has been revealed the way to salvation, and concerning the state of man after death; and this has been done fully and manifestly, so that anyone who understands the Latin language may know. All this was done and published a year ago. But still the church does not care for this. In heaven they wonder very greatly that the church is in such a state that the things which are its very essentials are not even looked into, but are left as matters of no moment-an indication that heavenly things do not occupy their minds at all, and are not seen when revealed.
