Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to illustrate from portions of “True Christian Religion” and the “Appendix to True Christian Religion” by Emanuel Swedenborg, an understanding of current events in the world, the US elections, and how they relate to spiritual events as seen from heaven.

From” Coronis or Appendix to True Christian Religion” by Emanuel Swedenborg,
#20. It should be known that when hell has increased, and has passed over the great interstice (Small opening between things) or gulf (A deep wide spiritual chasm). fixed between itself and heaven (Luke 16:26),
“And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who want to pass from this [place] to you may not be able, and no one may pass from there to us” (Luke 16:26)
(or from natural to spiritual realms)
“Man has power against evils and falsities from the Divine omnipotence so far as he lives according to Divine order, because no one can resist evils and their falsities but God alone. For all evils and their falsities are from hell, where they combine, forming as it were a unity, as do all kinds of good and their truths in heaven. As was said above, all heaven appears as one man in the sight of God, while hell is like a giant monster; so that to oppose one evil and its falsity is to oppose that monstrous giant, or all hell, and this no can do but God, because He is omnipotent. From this it is evident that unless a man approaches the omnipotent God, he has of himself no more power against evil and its falsity than a fish has against the ocean, or a flea against a whale, or a speck of dust against an avalanche; and much less than a locust has against an elephant or a fly against a camel. Moreover, a man has still less power against evil and its falsity because he is born in evil, and evil cannot act against itself. It follows, therefore, that unless a man lives according to order, that is, unless he acknowledges God, His omnipotence, and its protection against hell;” (True Christian Religion #68)
(So we can see that Sola Fide or by grace alone is a powerless Christian theology or empty void that contains no power to oppose this advance of hell. The church has no purpose, direction, or uses to God or others).
#20 (Continued) “It should be known that when hell has increased, and has passed over the great interstice (Small opening between things) or gulf (A deep wide spiritual chasm). fixed between itself and heaven (Luke 16:26),
“And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who want to pass from this [place] to you may not be able, and no one may pass from there to us” (Luke 16:26) (a barrier from natural to spiritual realms)
#20 (Continued) “…and has raised up its back even to the confines (boundaries) of the heavens where the angels are, which came to pass during the interval of the vastation (devastation) and consummation (end ) of the church, not any doctrine (principles) of the church could be conveyed (communicated) by the Lord through heaven to the men of the earth“.
(this raises the question where is the Church of Jesus Christ during this current crisis of Communist and Marxist philosophy deeply entrenched in all nations? It is removed from the protection and guidance of heaven)
#20 (Continued) “…The reason is that man is then in the midst of satans; and satans envelop his head with their falsities, and inspire the delights of evil and the consequent pleasures of falsity, whereby all the light out of heaven is darkened, and all the agreeableness and pleasantness of truth is intercepted.
In this current global crisis what will be the result? The Lord Jesus will be greatly honored and exalted. He has overcome!
President Donald Trump of the United States has been an instrument of God to the nations. He has become a lightning rod, a catalyst, and a point of opposition to this secret clandestine advance of hell while the Church of Jesus Christ sleeps and slumbers while heaven is darkened.
This is why the US election of 2020 is a crux or most important point in the history of the earth until now. The Geo-political takeover by communism and Marxism will most likely be a complete defeat without the intervention of the Lord Jesus from heaven.
This also is why many prophetically gifted people in the church (including myself) have said that this corrupt election will be overturned, and Donald Trump will be instituted as President of the United States for another four years.
If this occurs, the darkness of hell will have been exposed, and they will have overplayed their hand. For this is a time of “Justice and Judgment” by the Lord. Any corruption that has been exposed will come to the light and become nothing. This will also facilitate the beginning of the New Christian Church upon the earth and the Second Advent of the Lord.
