ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
11 Chap. cit. 26
Numbers refer to paragraphs. ďSpir.Ē stands for spiritual; ďSig.Ē for signify or signifies; ďRep.Ē for represents.
Able, Ability or Potency. Wives are in states of preparation for reception according to the extent that the husband is able, 219. Men have ability according to their love of propagating the truths of their wisdom, and their love of performing uses, 220. The states of ability vary, 221. Angels have ability to eternity, 260, 355, 433. The virile faculty accompanies wisdom in proportion as this is animated by the spiritual things of the church, 433; on the other hand confirmed adulterers become impotent, 433, 477, 510, 514.
Abomination of Desolation. (Matt. 24:15) sig. the falsification and deprivation of all truth, 80.
Absence. Presence and absence in the spir. world is according to agreement or disagreement of spheres, 171.
Accommodation. Simulations for sake of, 280, 282.
Action. Actions flow from the will, thus from a spiritual origin, 220. Action and reaction in conjunction, 293.
Activity. Earnest activity of the mind in use disposes the mind into a form receptive of wisdom, 16. See 164. From conjugial love go forth as from a fountain the activities of life, 249. The activity of love produces the sense of delight; in heaven it is with wisdom, in hell with insanity, 461.
Actors. In heaven, 17, 79.
Actually. 66, 98. The mind is actually in the whole body, 178.
Acuition. A process of rectification of alcohol; corresponds to the purification of conjugial love, 145.
Adam. 3, 104. The error of those who believe Adam was wise and did good from himself, 135. Adam means man (homo), the man and the woman called Adam, 156. In what Adamís sin consisted, 444. Inherited evil is from parents not from Adam, 525. The depravity of Adam believed to be inscribed on whole human race, because few reflect upon evil in themselves, 525.
Adjunction. Of married partners is near according to the love, it is spir. cohabitation, 158; it is actual adjunction of the soul and mind of the one to that of the other, 321. See Conjunction.
Administrations. In heaven, 207.
Administrators. In the spiritual world there are administrators, 207.

Adoration. Why the ancients in their adorations turned their faces to the rising of the sun, 342.
Adramandoni. The name of a garden, meaning the delight of conjugial love, 183.
Adulterers. They are in hell, 54. They are cast into the fires of the west, 77. Spiritual and natural adulterers are in hell, 79, 80. Adulterers of purpose are those who do not believe adulteries to be hurtful to society, 152. They are adulterers if they do not from religion execrate adulteries, 153. Adulterers cannot see the quality of conjugial love, 425. Four kinds: adulterers of purpose from the lust of the will; of confirmation from persuasion of the understanding; from premeditation from the allurements of the senses; unpremeditated adulterers are those in whom the understanding has not been consulted, 432. Adulterers of the first two kinds become more and more not men, but the latter two kinds become men as they recede from these errors, 432. Cast into hell, 483. Some called satans, others devils, 492. One may not be an adulterer in act but may be in will and understanding, 494; after death he speaks openly in favor of them, 494. Adulterers of the third and fourth degrees are natural and become sensual and corporeal, 495. Reasonings of adulterers, they reject all things of the church and religion, 497-500. As soon as man actually becomes an adulterer, heaven is closed to him, 500. Hells of adulterers, 500, 510, 512, 514, 521.
Adultery. The lot of those in the love of adultery, 54; they are infernal, 79; and profane, 79. Those who do not believe adulteries to be evils of religion are unchaste, 152, 153. Chastity cannot be predicated of those who abstain from adulteries from external reasons, 153. Impious men can shun adulteries as hurtful; none but a Christian can shun them as sins, 153. Divorces are from adulteries, 234; the only cause, 255, 468, 469. To attain the state of angels, men must shun adulteries and all evils as infernal, and go to the Lord; adulteries are the complex of all evils, 356. The love of adultery not regarded as sin is opposite to conjugial love, 423; it destroys marriage, 424; called promiscuous love, 423-444. The connubial relation of evil and the false is adultery, 427-429. Four kinds of adultery; adultery of purpose, by confirmation, with premeditation, unpremeditated, 432. Accessories of adultery and aggravations of it, 454. Adulteries, their kinds and degrees, treated in series, 478-514. Some hundreds of the learned from the European world, all of whom except ten said only public law makes the distinction between marriage and adultery, 478. Three kinds of adultery, simple, double, and triple, 479; By adultery is meant promiscuity opposite to marriage, 480; simple adultery is of a married person with one unmarried, 480; double when both are married, 482; triple is with blood relations, 484. Four degrees of adultery, 485; first degree, from ignorance, 486; these are light, 487; second degree, from lust, these are imputed according as the understanding afterward favors them or not, 489; third degree, of reason, confirming that they are not evils of sin, 490; these are grievous according to confirmation, 491; fourth degree, of the will, these are the most grievous, 492, 493; the third and fourth degrees are evils of sin, 494. Adulteries from purpose and from confirmation make men natural, sensual, and corporeal, 495; such at length reject all things of the church and religion, 497; such are rational when in externals, but not when in internals, 498, 499. A general who in the world made nothing of adulteries, reasons shown him why adulteries are infernal, 481. The horrible nature of adultery; its varieties, 483. Double adultery lays a man waste of every spiritual good, 483. The adultery of the reason less grievous than that of will, 490. Not a hundred out of a thousand believe adulteries to be sins, 500. The more grievous lusts of adultery, the lust of defloration, 501-505, hell of, 505; lust of varieties, 506-510, hell of, 510; lust of violation, their hell, 511, 512; lust of seducing innocences, their hell, 513, 514. Whoredoms and adulteries correspond to falsifications of truth and adulterations of good, 518. Spir. adultery is the connubial connection of the evil and the false; why hell in the total is called adultery, 520. Satyrs correspond to wanton adultery, its baseness, 521. Imputation of promiscuous love, 523-531.
Affection. All angels are affections of love in human form, 42; their ruling affection shines from their face, their garments according to it, 42. Women are created by the Lord affections for the wisdom of man, 56. The affection of the male is for knowing, understanding, and for acquiring wisdom, how developed successively, 90; the affection of the female is for loving knowledge, intelligence, and wisdom in the man, 91. The wife is gifted with a perception of the husbandís affections, and a prudence in moderating them, 166-168, 173. The affections of women are entirely distinct from the affections of men, 175. In the spir. world all are clothed according to their affections, 175. Influx of Divine love, wisdom, and use into the soul, thence into the interior affections and thoughts of the mind, 183. Every affection of love is a property of the will, 196. The wife appropriates the husbandís affections, 197. Affections are derivations of love; they form the will, 197. In the spir. world the varieties and comminglings of affections in sound are distinctly perceived, 207. According to oneís affection for knowledge he has intelligence, 207. External and internal affections, in natural world almost all can be conjoined as to external not as to internal affections; every affection has its delight, 272; in spir. world they are conjoined as to internal affections, 273. Affections and the thoughts thence appertain to the mind, sensation with the pleasures thence to the body, 273. Matrimony is usually contracted from external affections, 274; if no internal ones it is loosened in the house, 275, 277. Internal affections are the inclinations which influence the mind from heaven, external affections those from the world, 277. Affection of truth rep. by a virgin, 293. External affections follow the body and are entombed with it, 320. The good of marriage is a bundle of affections of good, 427.

They were all from Asia, they had the ancient Word; they were rep. by the statue of Nebuchadnezzar, 78; mentioned, 115.

How one changed into the other, 153a. Heaven is seen by the Lord as consisting of use, an angel is an angel according to his use, 207. Some angels are of a wise, some of a simple character; it is the part of the wise to judge when the simple from their simplicity and ignorance are doubtful as to what is just, or swerve from it, 207. Every angel has conjugial love with its virtue, ability, and delights according to his application to genuine uses, 207. Angels are in love of ruling from love of uses; a prince and a priest, 266. Angels are in close conjunction with man, if they were removed, man would instantly fall down, 404. Angels who have the care of infants are immediately under the auspices of the Lord, 410-414.

Procreate. To, belongs to the natural world, 52. The use of conjugial love is supereminent on account of the procreation of the human race, and thence the angelic heaven, 183. Procreation of offspring is the first end of conjugial love, 385. A sphere of procreating from the Lord, 386-390. It progresses from ends through causes into effects, 400, 401. Its delight is supereminent, 390. This love with wives and with husbands, 403.
Progression. Decreasing progression of conjugial love in the four ages, 78. Progression from end, through causes, into effects is inscribed on every man in general and in every particular, 400, 401; in propagation, 400, 401, 403. There is no progression of good to evil, but there is of good to greater or less good, and of evil to greater or less evil, 444. Prolific. Or generative power of husband would be in continual spring if the minds were in the marriage of good and truth, 115. The soul and the mind as to its interiors is in the prolific gift of the husband; they are received by the wife and are added to her life, 172.
Prolification. In heaven there is not natural but spiritual prolification, which is of love and wisdom, 44, 51-53. Prolification is from the intellect alone, 90. The sphere of prolification from the Lord is the same with the universal sphere of the marriage of good and truth, 92. Spiritual and natural prolifications from the marriage of good and truth, 115. Corresponds to the propagation of truth, 127. The wife appropriates the offshoots of the husbandís soul, 172, 193. In the seed is the soul in perfect human form covered with substances of purest nature out of which a body is formed, 183; all prolification is from the influx of love, wisdom, and use from the Lord, 183; they are continuations of creation, 183. Prolification by an immediate influx into souls of men, a mediate influx into souls of animals, still more mediate into the inmosts of vegetables, 183.
Promiscuity. In hell promiscuity is interdicted, 54. Potency from a total renunciation of promiscuity, 55. They cannot say promiscuity in heaven, 75. Spiritual promiscuities are falsifications of truth, 77. taking a mistress conjointly with a wife is promiscuity more antagonistic to conjugial love than ordinary promiscuity, 466. A novitiate spirit who boasted of his promiscuities, 477; shown the magnificent things of heaven, let into his internals and externals alternately, 477. Those that glory in their promiscuities become impotent, 477. Promiscuities, whether they are fornications, resorting to a courtesan, taking a mistress, or adulteries, are imputed according to the state of mind in the deeds, 530.
Promiscuous. The love opposite to marriage called promiscuous is unchastity itself, 139, 225; it stores up cold more than any other love, 247, 249; its pleasures are of insanity, 294; they descend to the lowest hell, 294. Promiscuous marriage in which license is given by mutual consent. 376. Promiscuous love treated in series, 423-535.
Promiscuous love opposite conjugial love is the love of adultery when not regarded as sin, as evil, dishonorable, and against reason, but as permissible by reason. 423. 424. The quality of promiscuous love not known except the quality of conjugial love is known, 424. From intelligence derived from the treatise on conjugial love Swedenborg was able to describe the pleasures of promiscuous love, 424. It is opposite to conjugial love, 425, 499; as the natural man is opposite to the spiritual, 426; and as the connubial relation of evil and the false is opposite to the marriage of good and truth, 427; and as hell is opposite to heaven, 429. The impurity of hell is from promiscuous love. the purity of heaven from conjugial love, 430; likewise impurity and purity in the church, 431. Promiscuous love makes man more and more not a man, 432. There is a sphere of promiscuous love, 434; from hell, 435, 455; of conjugial love from heaven, 434, 435; these spheres meet and make an equilibrium in which man is, 436, 437; in freedom to turn to either, 438; each sphere has its delights, 439. The delights of promiscuous love begin from the flesh and are of the flesh even in the spirit, 440; the delights of love begin in the spirit and are of the spirit even in the flesh, 440. They have nothing in common with the feculent delights of promiscuous love, 441. The delights of promiscuous love are pleasures of insanity, those of conjugial love are delights of wisdom, 442, 443. Those who follow the Lord are in conjugial love, those who do not are in promiscuous love, 444. Promiscuous love may come from love of the sex, and from fornication, 445. Imputation of promiscuous love, 523-531.
Promiscuous love imputed not as it appears to men or to a judge, but as it appears inwardly before the Lord, and from him before angels, 530. If the love of the sex is inwardly promiscuous it will be such after death, 47, 48; it was so in age of iron mixed with clay, 79. The external separated from the internal is promiscuous in the whole and in every part, 148. A promiscuous mind acts promiscuously, a chaste mind chastely, 191. Promiscuousness in its spiritual origin is insanity or derangement from falsities, 212. How the angels distinguish the promiscuous from the non-promiscuous in the extremes, 439. Promiscuousness. 55. Moral wisdom shuns evils and falsities as leprosies, especially those of promiscuousness, 102. A sphere of promiscuousness from unchaste persons, 140. In its spiritual origin it is insanity; those who have a promiscuous end in marriages, 212. It resides in the lowest region of the mind, the natural, 305. All in hell are in the lust of promiscuousness, 429.
Promulgation. Of Decalogue from Mount Sinai with so great a miracle was that the commandments might be made laws of religion; by doing them from religion, or for God, men are saved, 351. Propagate. The sphere of propagation is the same as the Divine providence for the conservation of the universe by successive generations, 92. Wisdom in men feels nothing more grateful that to propagate its truths, 115. Bearing offspring corresponds to the propagation of truth, 127. Love and wisdom with use propagate man; all fructification, propagation, and prolification come by immediate influx into the souls of men, by mediate influx into the souls of animals, and by still more mediate influx into the inmosts of vegetables, 183. The use of conjugial love is the propagation of the human race, it is the end of ends of creation, 68. All propagation comes originally from the influx of love, wisdom, and use from the Lord, 183. They are the continuations of creation, 183. The formation of the wife is effected through the reception of propagations of the soul of the husband, 198, 321. The propagation of the feminine soul is from intellectual good, 220. Propagation by seed, the propagative force therein is from the conjugial sphere of the Lord, 238. How the soul from the father is propagated, although the souls of partners are not conjoined, 245. Force from conjugial sphere from the Lord, 238.
Proprium. The proprium of the will and of the understanding, the self- life of the will is to love himself, of his understanding to love his own wisdom; these two propria are evils deadly to man, if they remain in him, but when transcribed into the wife they become conjugial love, 193-201. Manís own or the proprium is by nativity evil and opposite to the Lord, 261, 262. Infants have no proprium from love of self and world, 395.
Protection. A sphere from the Lord of protection of things created, 386-401. Protection of germs in seeds by coverings; of gems and metals in mineral kingdom, 389.
Providence. Divine providence concerning marriages is most particular and most universal, 229, 316.

Purpose. See End. Adulteries of the will are evils of purpose, they are most grievous, 432, 493. That which flows from the will or love is called purpose; what flows from the understanding and its thought is called intention, 432, 493. Evil and good imputed according to the purpose, intention, and end, 527-529. Adulterers of purpose and from confirmation regard the sacred things of the church of no account, 528. Where anyone from purpose abstains from any evil because it is sin, he is kept by the Lord in the purpose of abstaining from the rest, 529. See 490-493, 500, 521, 522.

Rational. The mind next above the body is opened and man then becomes rational, 102; it is effected by rejecting fallacies and lusts, 102. Rational and moral wisdom, 102; defined, 102, 163. The rational is the medium between heaven and the world, 145. Rational wisdom is of the understanding, 163-165. Matters of angelic wisdom are regarded as transcendent by those in the natural rational, but not by the spiritual rational, 178. Above the rational is heavenly light, below it is natural light, which can confirm whatever one pleases, 233. Spiritual rational wisdom is of the understanding and cognitions, 293. The rational can turn itself at will to heaven or to hell and receive one or the other, 436.
Rationality. Mentioned, 163. A devil has rationality proceeding from the glory of the love of self when the understanding is elevated, not when his love is active, also atheists, 269. Spiritual rationality from the Word and preaching thence, 293. Man has rationality and liberty, which are led by the Lord or by hell, according as man turns to one or the other, 437. Natural, sensual, and corporeal men have rationality by the faculty of elevating the understanding above the will, 498, 499. They use it when in externals but abuse it when in internals, 499.
Reaction. In all conjunction by love there must be action, reception, and reaction, the state of wisdom of husbands is reception and reaction, according to perception, 293.
Read. When man reads the Word and takes truth therefrom the Lord adjoins good, but only with those whose end is to become wise, 128. Real. In the natural world the beasts are real, in spir. world representative, 133. The representations are real, 270. Love and wisdom without use are but ideas of abstract thought; in use they make one which is called real, 183.
Reason. Intelligence is of reason, 130. Human reason understands truths from the light of truth, 490.
Reasoners. Those so called by angels because they never come to any conclusion, but merely dispute about the subject; they are merely sensual, 232; their lot after death, 232; they appear like asses bearing burdens, 232.
Reasonings. Of many begin from effects, 385. Truth does not admit of reasonings as these favor the delights of the flesh, 481.
Receptacle. Man is a receptacle of God, of love and wisdom from him, 132; a receptacle is an image of God; a likeness is to feel them as his own, 132, 134. He is a receptacle of life from God, 153a.
Reception. With wives there is a state of preparation for reception, as the husband is able. How this state is injured, 219. Without conjunction there is no reception, 341. The influx of light and heat enlightens and vivifies everyone according to reception; reception is according to religion, 352.
Reciprocal. Conjunction must be reciprocal, 61, 122. The reciprocal of conjunction is to love God, relish the things from God, but believe they are from him, 132. Conjugial love is mutual and reciprocal, 444. Recreations. In heaven, 17.

Regions. Of human mind, three, natural, spiritual, celestial; the natural rep. by swans, the spiritual by birds of paradise, the celestial by turtledoves, 270, 305, 335. Man is born in the lowest region where is evil and promiscuousness, and ascends to the spiritual by the truths of religion; here there is chastity, and into the highest by the marriage of love and wisdom, 305. Conjugial love ascends in like degree, 305; its beatitudes, satisfactions, and delights therein, 335.
Reign. To, with Christ, is to be wise and perform uses, 7.
Relation. There is no relation nor progression of good to evil, but of good to greater or less good, and of evil to greater or less evil, 444. Blood relations, adultery with, is triple; the laws against it in Leviticus are to guard lest man become a beast, 484.

Adulterers from purpose and confirmation reject all things of religion, 497-499. The conjugial desire of one man for one wife is the repository of the Christian religion, 457, 458, 531. Religion is the marriage of the Lord and the church, and the initiament and inoculation of conjugial love, 531.

Selection. Belongs to the man not to the woman, the reason, 296.
Self-conceit, or Self-derived Intelligence. The love of wisdom, if it remains with the man, and is not transcribed into the woman, is an evil love, and is called self-conceit, or the love of oneís own intelligence, 88, 353. He who, from a principle of self-love, is vain of his own intelligence, cannot possibly love his wife with true conjugial love, 193. The wife continually attracts to herself her husbandís conceit of his own intelligence, and extinguishes it in him, and verifies it in herself, 353.

The knowledge of correspondences in the Silver Age connected the sensuals of their bodies with the perceptions of the mind and gained them intelligence, 76. The love of resorting to a courtesan is unchaste, natural, and external; it parts the souls of the two and conjoins only the sensuals of the body, 460. Adulterers of third and fourth degrees are natural, and become sensual and corporeal, 495-499. In the second degree of the natural are those who love only the delights of the senses, placing their heart in every kind of luxury and pleasure; these are called sensual, 496.

The soul is the inmost, the mind the mediate, the body the ultimate; the soul is of celestial origin, 101, 158, 183, 206. It is not in space, 158. The union of the souls of married partners, how effected, 172. It constitutes the inmosts not only of the head but of the body; the mind is intermediate between soul and body; they adjoin themselves closely to the flesh of the body to operate and produce their effects, 178, 183. The seed of man is his soul in perfect human form covered with substances from the purest principles of nature, 183. The conjugial of good and truth is implanted in the soul of everyone from creation, 203-206. How this is changed in its descent, 203. The soul is from the father, the body from the mother, 206, 238. The soul is not a subject of extension but of impletion, and is as fully present in the smallest receptacles which are seeds, as in its greatest receptacles, the body; the whole may be produced without any loss, 220. The soul is the inmost of man and of every animal, in its essence it is spiritual; from an implanted tendency to self- propagation it clothes itself and becomes seed; how the feminine and the masculine soul are propagated, 220, 236, 238, 245.

Speech. And action flow from the love by the thought, 36. The speech of angels is the language of wisdom because they speak from causes, 75. The sound of the speech is from the affection of the will, the language itself is from the thought of the understanding, 140, 220. The speech of spirits and angels with men is in the manís language; how effected, 326. Frequent speech from memory and recollection, though not from thought and intelligence, induces a sort of faith, 415. In the spiritual world it can be heard at a distance, 521. Opinion of satyrs that the only difference between man and beast is that man has articulate speech, beasts only that of sound, 521. Manís speech is such as is the thought of his understanding, 527.
Sphere. The sphere of conjugial love is the very sphere of heaven, 54. A universal conjugial sphere proceeds from the Lord and pervades the universe from first to last things, from angels even to worms, 92. A sphere of promiscuousness pours forth from the unchaste, 140. The sphere of the wife proceeds from her love by which she is conjoined to her man, 171. Everything has its own sphere, not only men, but trees, fruits, flowers, and even metals; there are concordant and discordant spheres, 171. The sphere is produced from the dissolutions and restitutions which go on continually in organisms, 171. The sphere with man is denser from the breast, more attenuate from the back; this is the reason why partners who disagree from discordant minds and affections lie back to back, but concordant partners turn toward each other, 171, 224. How these spheres are perceived in heaven, 171. There is a conjugial sphere which flows from the Lord into all things of the universe, 222. There are many spheres which flow from him; some are enumerated, 222, 386. The conjugial sphere is the universal of all, filling the universe, and pervading all things from first to last, 222. This sphere is received by the female sex and through this by the male sex, 223. Where there is love truly conjugial it is received by the wife, and through her by the husband, 224. Where there is not love truly conjugial the wife receives it, but it is not received by the husband through her, 225. The conjugial sphere is holy in its origin, but it may be changed into the opposite; the sphere opposite with such women is meretricious, with such men promiscuous, 225. Sphere of love from wife and of understanding from husband flow forth and perfect their conjunction, 321. There is a universal sphere from the Lord of generating and propagating celestial, spiritual, and natural things, 355. All that flows from a subject, and encompasses and surrounds it, is called a sphere, 386. Two universal spheres from the Lord, of procreating and of protecting, 386-414. These make one with the sphere of conjugial love, and of the love of infants, 387. They inflow into all things, 388-390. The sphere of the love of infants is a sphere of protection, 391. It affects the evil as well as the good, 392; principally the female sex, 393. It is a sphere of innocence and peace, 394. The sphere of innocence flows into infants, through them into parents, 395; also into the souls of parents and conjoins itself with the same sphere from infants, 396, 397. How it recedes from infants, 398, 399. Sphere of procreating proceeds from ends, through causes, into effects, order of progression, 400, 401. There is a sphere o f promiscuous love, and a sphere of conjugial love, 434; the one is from hell, the other from heaven, 435. These spheres meet and make an equilibrium, 436, 437; in which man is in freedom, 437, 438; man can turn to either, but as he turns to the one, he turns from the other, 438; each sphere has its delights, 439. The sphere of the lust for fornication, in its beginning, is intermediate between sphere of promiscuous and that of conjugial love, 455; and makes an equilibrium, 455. Man is in this equilibrium and can turn himself to one or the other, 455.
Spiral. Trees in a spiral, 13. The desire of evil and the false closes the mind from beneath and twists it as a spiral in the opposite direction, 203.

The natural is wanting to those in the spir. world, the natural is the container of the spir.; the spir. without the natural container have no consistence, 52. Spir. civil, and natural things, their relation to each other; spir. things reside in the inmost, 130. With those who are made spir. conjugial love is continually purified, 145. How man becomes spir. gradually, as his rational receives a soul from influx out of heaven, 145; effected by religion, 149. A spir. man is one who loves spir. things and has wisdom from the Lord, 281. Swedenborg taught those in spir. world the difference between the spir. and the natural; it is as prior to posterior, they did not understand this before, 326. To become spir. is to be elevated out of the natural, out of the light and heat of the world into the light and heat of heaven, 347. At this day the Lord has disclosed the nature of the spir. world, and has revealed the spir. sense of the Word, 532. Spiritual World.
