FIRST HALF OF SHOW, : Emanuel Swedenborg - born Emanuel Swedberg on 29 January 1688- died 29 March 1772) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher,thoelogian, revelator, and Mystic. He is best known for his book on the afterlife (Heaven & Hell) (1758). We will learn what he said about Angels- Swedenborg had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. In 1741, at age 53, he entered into a spiritual phase in which he began to experience dreams and visions, beginning on Easter weekend of 6 April 1744. This culminated in a 'spiritual awakening', in which he received revelation that he was appointed by the Lord to write The Heavenly Doctrine to reform Christianity.According to The Heavenly Doctrine the Lord had opened Swedenborg's spiritual eyes, so that from then on he could freely visit heaven & hell and talk with angels, demons and other spirits.For the remaining 28 years of his life, Swedenborg wrote eighteen published theological works, and several more which were unpublished. He termed himself a "Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ" in True Christian Religion,a work he published himself. Some followers of The Heavenly Doctrine believe that, of his theological works, only those which Swedenborg published himself are fully divinely inspired.
