81. As we were talking about these things, and grieving, suddenly there appeared a stream of light powerfully affecting my eyes. I therefore looked up, and lo, the whole heaven above us appeared luminous, and from east to west in a long series was heard therefrom a glorification. The angel then said to me, "That glorification is a glorification of the Lord, which is being made by angels of the eastern and western heavens on account of His advent." From the southern and northern heavens only a gentle murmur was heard.
Because the angel understood all this, he told me, first that glorifications and celebrations of the Lord are made from the Word because then they are made from the Lord, He being the Word, that is, the Divine Truth therein. He then added: "Now, in particular, they are glorifying and celebrating the Lord by these words spoken by Daniel the prophet:
Thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves through the seed of man, but they shall not cohere. But in those days, the God of the heavens shall make to arise a kingdom which shall not be destroyed for ages. It shall break in pieces and consume all those kingdoms; but itself shall stand for ages." Dan. 2:43, 44.
 After this I heard, as it were, the sound of a song, and more deeply in the east, I saw that the sparkling of the light was more brilliant than before; so I asked the angel, "By what are they glorifying there." He said: "By these words in Daniel:
I was seeing in the visions of the night, and behold, with the clouds of heaven, one coming like unto the SON OF MAN; and unto Him was given dominion and a kingdom, and all peoples and nations shall worship Him. His dominion is the dominion of an age which shall not pass away, and His kingdom which shall not perish. Dan. VII. 13, 14.
In addition to the above, they are celebrating the Lord from these words in the Apocalypse:
To JESUS CHRIST be glory and strength. Behold, He cometh with clouds. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last, who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. I, John, heard this from the SON OF MAN out of the midst of the seven candlesticks. Apoc. 1:5-7, 8, 9, 10-13; 22:13; and also from the words in Matthew 24:30, 31."
 I again looked into the eastern heaven. On the right side it had become luminous, and the luminosity entered the southern expanse. Hearing a sweet sound, I asked the angel, "What of the Lord are they glorifying there?" He said: "These words in the Apocalypse:
I saw a new heaven and a new earth. And I saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as A BRIDE [ADORNED] FOR HER HUSBAND. And the angel spake with me and said, Come hither, I will show thee THE BRIDE, THE LAMB'S WIFE. And he carried me away in the spirit upon a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem. Apoc. 21:1, 2, 9, 10.
And also these:
I JESUS am the bright and morning Star. And the Spirit and the bride say, COME; AND HE SAID, YEA, I COME QUICKLY. Amen.
Yea, COME, LORD JESUS." 22:16, 17, 20.
 After these and other glorifications, then, from the east of heaven to the west and also from the south to the north, was heard a general glorification. And I asked the angel, "What is it now?" He said: "These words from the Prophets:
Let all flesh know that I, JEHOVAH, AM THY SAVIOR AND THY REDEEMER. Isa. 49:26.
Thus saith JEHOVAH, the King of Israel, and HIS REDEEMER, JEHOVAH ZEBAOTH, I am the first and the last, and BESIDE ME THERE IS NO GOD. Isa. 44:6.
It shall be said in that day, Lo, THIS IS OUR GOD; we have waited for Him that He should deliver us. THIS IS JEHOVAH, WE HAVE WAITED FOR HIM. Isa. 25:9.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of JEHOVAH. Behold, the LORD JEHOVAH cometh in strength. He shall feed his flock like A SHEPHERD.
Isa. 40:3, 5, 10, 11.
Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and his name shall be [called] Wonderful, Counselor, GOD, Hero FATHER OF ETERNITY, Prince of peace. Isa. 9:6.
Behold, the days come, and I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, a King, who shall reign. And this is his name, JEHOVAH OUR JUSTICE. Jer. 23:5, 6; 33:15,16.
JEHOVAH ZEBAOTH is his name; and THY REDEEMER, the Holy One of Israel, THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH SHALL HE BE CALLED. Isa. 54:5.
IN THAT DAY JEHOVAH SHALL BE FOR A KING OVER ALL THE EARTH; IN THAT DAY THERE SHALL BE ONE JEHOVAH, AND HIS NAME ONE. Zech. 14:8, 9.
 Hearing and understanding these glorifications, my heart exulted, and I went home in joy. There, from the state of the spirit I returned into that of the body, in which state I wrote down what had been seen and heard. To this I now add the following: After His advent, conjugial love will be raised up anew by the Lord, such as it was with the ancients; for this love is from the Lord alone and is with those who are made spiritual by Him through the word.
