    I really liked the "health certificate" story. Was God trying to show that God knows everything about him?

  2. Julian Bristow Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    As Jonathan Rose was reading, When Swedenborg went to sleep and thought the tempter ( evil spirits) had left him, then why at 2 am was he shaken and thrown face down? Was this Jesus? But why treat him in such a fashion? Or was this just a grand entrance to the appearance of Jesus? This is confusing to me because you would think Jesus was a kind and compassionate individual. Thanks.

    Wow, it’s so nice to hear other people’s experiences about everything. ….Reality is only an illusion in a sense, moving back and forth like waves and revolving, in a sea of motion, like an electromagnetic frequency and it’s wavelength. All substance is held together by GOD’S LOVE! …God gave us our five senses to see this reality. But then when the physical body begins to age and die, we move beyond our 5 senses into another realm. Swedenborg was aware of this , I believe. Yes, we all suffer and make errors, but we learn from our mistakes ( I hope) because we wish to be a better person…… Next month, I’m going to sign up for Patreon and make a monthly contribution to the show. I believe I owe Swedenborg Foundation for letting me watch these great videos and read along with Curtis and Emmanuel Swedenborg. 🙏!!! Thanks! 😀

    Awsome video. I dont mean to be mean btw.

  6. Michael M. Muqattash Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    At 1 hr 2 min 12 sec a pop up would be favorable to time while keeping the viewer engaged (I the viewer would pause it to read said pop up).

    These vids can be reduced without a loss of impact on Dr. Swedenborg's material.

    1. Reduce your over kill on descriptions
    2. Cut down the interruptions
    3. No need for multi analogies

    Lmao @56.30 "mr. funny guy"
    God bless 😄😄

    I love your style of comedy man, but too many interruptions.

    Often a fast incorporated with Deep contemplative prayer will instigate a Spiritual transformation.My Dad who in 60 years never showed a tendency toward the Spiritual quite suddenly began to go to church[never recall him missing a Sunday service] holding my moms hand in public,being social ,visiting,stopped smoking cold turkey,smiled and laughed often. Bizarre to watch in my early 20's but look back now and wonder what happened to cause such a radical change.

    The Bible states clearly we cannot look upon the face of God

  11. Walk By The Spirit Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    First off I want to say, Curtis you are such an amazing host. I love how potent this information and how light hearted it is presented. I cannot express my appreciation for the work you guys do enough. It is the most excellent blend of mystical knowledge and the truth of the Lord, and unfortunately I feel most modern day spirituality is divided in that sense; the more spiritually oriented people deny Christ and the believers in Christ label anything spiritual as demonic. Generalizations of course, but this is what I seem to find.

    I will say though, it is very important to test every spirit and spiritual experience. I'm sure Swedenborg would have attested to this. I've had numerous spiritual experiences through psychedelics, shamanism, meditation, and as of recently ayahuasca, in which I was most definitely connecting to something bigger than myself, and were often accompanied by extreme bliss and even visuals. Until very recently, I thought this was connecting to God, but the problem is, as we know, there are VERY powerful evil spirits and there are also spirits of goodness and truth, from the Lord. And as the bible states and I'm sure Swedenborg has seen, evil spirits can come dressed as beings of light.

    There is a large growing belief that EVERYTHING is God, and that good and evil and duality are illusions of the mind. Many people, myself once included, are following these kinds of philosophies and it takes away the importance of righteousness, and goodness, and of recognizing sin and repenting, because good and bad are all the same thing, they are all just different expressions of "source" or "God", such as the woman in this video stated.

    It is imperative to understand we CANNOT interplay the true Lord with this impersonal force of creation, which is essentially the pantheistic Hindu view of God, which is false, and can give permission to demonic entities to enter us through spiritual practice and experience.

    It is important to be armed with knowledge and connection to the good and true God, the God of love, the God who's son is Jesus Christ. I'd like to think Swedenborg would have material very similar to what I just wrote.

    If you guys would ever be interested in talking to me about these things, I have a lot of stories of direct experience, as well as pictures of signs and ways the Lord has revealed himself to me.

    Anyways, thanks for taking the time you read if you did, and thank you endlessly for the work you do. God bless you!

    Thanx so much!- and it is also a good overview on the life and writings of Swedenborg in some audiofiles from part 1 and 2+ via http://galactic.no/rune/lydboker/2017uploadAudiobooks/historyOfSpiritualism_conanDoyle/

    Hi Curtis!
    I recently stumbled upon your youtube videos and they have been so spiritually helpful for me as I have been stressing about a lot of the concepts you address on your channel. One thing that is bothering me a lot though is why do some seemingly good people have hellish NDE's and vice versa? I just don't understand why that would happen. Thank you so much you're doing an awesome job with your show keep it up!:)

  15. Carla J. Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    As always I truly enjoyed this topic. You and your crew do such an outstanding job in getting the message of Swedenborg across. Thank you so much for your continued effort in sharing these wonderful writings and explaining in detail the meanings. I've always wondered if those that have passed really do think of us that have been left behind and do they know when we think of them. Final thoughts are: Be kind, do no harm, and just breathe. I am glad that I am a member of Swedenborg Foundation. I need to spend more time there. Thank you again.

    Hi Curtis, I have had spiritual experiences since 2007. I have read the Jakob Lorber scriptures and I believe it with all my heart. Then my spirit was opened by Yahshua(Hebrew for Jesus). Years after that someone gave me something of Swedenborg and it totaly corresponds with the Lorber scriptures. Any time of day or night YAHSHUA shows me the most wonderful things. HE allowed Swedenborg to make contact with me once. I was in my bed, just about to dose off when I suddenly became aware of Emanuel Swedenborg, very strong. He was shining like a light from the left side of my head, above my head. I wondered why you are called off the left eye, but then I remembered from whence he made contact with me – just off to my left eye and above. Inside the light that was him, was everything he wrote in his book Conjugial Love. It is difficult to describe but he only "shone" into/onto me and there were no audible words, only a total peace, calm and an absolutely rich light filled with truths. I have experienced much of what he is saying but in a different way because Yahshua as I call HIM is always present. HE has shown me places, even hell, spirits, good and evil. Thank you very much for all the work you people are doing. I know God and Swedenborg is very pleased with your work! Please read the Lorber books. The great gospel of John was written by God Himself through Jakob Lorber. It is about the life of Jesus Christ in so much detail and it even goes back to the ancient church and golden era in the Household of Elohim, then there is From Hell to Heaven where Jesus takes us through the afterlife of a man called Robert Blum, that died in political events in Germany. He has dictated books about Saturn, The Spiritual Sun and Natural Sun and many more. GOD tells us everything about the fact that the stars and space is contained in a body like Swedenborg said. But it goes even further than that body, which is Lucifer and where we are in, when God says that there is another Body out of this one and that is HIS Heavenly Body Every topic Swedenborg is talking about are so much more detailed in the Lorber books and they are easier to read since they are written in God's own words. Please, everyone who is reading my comment should read the Lorber books too. You can google it and download it. It will set you free from every sin and false believe that we have taken on out of our stupidity. And the criteria you need, to know if it is the truth, is the Love from Jesus that will enlighten your heart. Everything you have ever wondered about will be answered when you read the Lorber books. I love Swedenborg and Lorber! Thank you, I love watching your programs. You are indeed feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and helping the poor. I am looking forward to meet you all in Heaven!

    Nothing here is unbiased of Christian perspective here.

  20. Michael Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    I had one rank higher and I saw no Jesus no Angels or demons yet a very powerful being of compassion. My experience happened before my awareness of the Roman Catholic church, I could not stand the church in my first encounters with Christians actually. Cause nothing was of Christianity in my experience nor was it an animal. I also know it wasn't my spirit guide as my spirit guide is an owl and this being was far more superior than my spirit guide. The NDE's make sense though the Christian aspect seems of hopes of a religion being true like a security blanket. Though I believe what I saw could have been Odin before he sacrificed his right eye to the well of wisdom. The being I saw was powerful, in a loving way, it's power over my fears and terror prior to my visit were swept away with a glance from the being I saw. It was also like we had chatted without talking and understood before thought to speak. It was like I knew and it knew why, and what to do from then on. This had great love, care and nurturing effect on me. I have had other experiences of being visited by deceased family members just hours after they had died. So much so that I could hold their hand and let them guide me. My introduction to the Roman Catholicism seemed a mass con of who the creator really is, he is beyond the words of the bible and other various literatures of religions. I was even taken from this world without any craft or vessel of any sort. So please throw out the security blanket of religion. Those are very biased assumptions of humans, I believe Q from Star Trek seems even more legitimate than Jesus. A god could transform into whatever least scares you if it so was willing to. Though I had no knowledge of god/gods when I met this being and I find when I sought what god/gods could look like I'd say it really is Odin not Jesus. I have even had visions of my ancestors and they appear to look like Norsemen. I did even try to deny this being as a creator and tried to accept Jesus to no avail. When I hail Odin I find his work exists in my life.

    So STE is what happened to me in 2016, my whole life changed after my mother died in 2015 and i started studying NDE, I went through alot of changes, left a church I was with and felt i was spinning my wheels, have since felt as I have really had way more understanding about God and death. Discovered this channel and love it, Jonathan Rose Bible studies and discovered the Episcopal church for those times I want to experience the liturgy/communion. Swedenborgism is my main spirituality and I love it, brings you close to God and a better me.

  22. NelliRaes' Kitchen Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    Thank you so much for these, you are a wonderful interviewer and exude such a warmth and kindness…..nurturing. Thank you, thank you. I need this right now, I'm glad I was guided to these videos. One more thing, nice sense of humor to boot!

  23. JJ W Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    Being a scientist and really appreciating Swedenborg's teachings, I think it's a bit unfair to treat all "scientists" as a monolith. There are just as many believers as there are non-believers in the scientific community, same as it is in the general population, and I think the meaning of "anecdotal" and "scientific method" is a bit over-simplified and/or misconstrued. Swedenborg himself was a scientist, and without the progress of science, we would still be burning witches at the stake and believing in magic potion and hexes. I don't think spirituality need approval from "hard-core science" since very different things are addresses and measured by these two realms. What is the physical weight or dimension of love? or faith? or one's soul? these are all non-measurable things that can't be measured by hard science, but nonetheless vital to human existence.

  24. Lisa Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    One of my favorite Swedenborg web casts. When I was in my mid teens I experienced a wonderful spiritual dream where I saw a beautiful heavenly alter that shone so bright. Suddenly a great booming voice (yet calming at the same time) that I took as Jesus spoke some indistinct message. I remember saying "Wait….I didn't understand" He never spoke again. I was left with an overpowering feeling of love and comfort.

  25. Patricia Dudley Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    I love this podcast!

  26. Daniel Aoki Posted on May 26, 2019 at 1:17 pm

    Any word on Mary curtis? I had an amazing experience where I went from sleeping and dreaming, to waking up with my eyes closed but seeing an engolfment of bright white with golden letters in front of me, music around, and female voices cheering, Mary… I don't know a Mary….
