47. The Divine Providence is the subject now being treated of, and it is to be shown here that in everything it does it regards the infinite and the eternal. As this cannot be clearly set forth except in an orderly way, the order will be as follows:
I. The Infinite in itself and the Eternal in itself is the same as the Divine.
II. The Infinite and Eternal in itself cannot but regard what is infinite [and eternal] from itself in finite things.
III. The Divine Providence in everything it does regards what is infinite and eternal from itself, especially in saving the human race.
IV. An image of the Infinite and Eternal is presented in an angelic heaven from a saved human race.
V. The inmost of the Divine Providence is to regard what is infinite and eternal in forming the angelic heaven, in order that it may be before the Lord as one man, the image of Himself.
