615. And as the voice of great thunder, signifies the Lord speaking through the New Heaven from the Divine love. That "lightnings, thunders, and voices," signify enlightenment, perception, and instruction, may be seen above (n. 236); and that "the seven thunders speaking," signify the Lord speaking through the entire heaven (n. 472). The Lord, when He speaks through heaven, speaks from the third heaven through the second heaven, thus from Divine love through Divine wisdom, for the third heaven is in His Divine love, and the second heaven in His Divine wisdom. The Lord never speaks otherwise when He speaks from the higher heavens; and this is what is meant by "a voice as of many waters," and by "a voice of great thunder;" "many waters" are the Divine truths of the Divine wisdom, and "great thunder" is the Divine good of the Divine love.
