394. VII. THAT THIS SPHERE IS ALSO A SPHERE OF INNOCENCE AND PEACE [FROM THE LORD]. Innocence and peace are the two inmost things of heaven. They are called inmost because they proceed immediately from the Lord, the Lord being Innocence and Peace itself. From innocence, the Lord is called the Lamb, and from peace He said:
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you. John 14:27.
The same is also meant by the peace with which the Disciples were to salute the city or house into which they entered; if it were worthy, peace should come upon it, and, if not worthy, the peace would return to them (Matt. 10:11-15). Hence also the Lord is called the Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6). Moreover, innocence and peace are the inmost things of heaven, innocence being the esse of every good, and peace the blessedness of every delight pertaining to good. See the work on HEAVEN AND HELL, nos. 276-83, On the State of Innocence of the Angels of Heaven, and nos. 284-90, On the State of Peace in Heaven.
