FACE, the, cor. to the mind. 4791, 4805. The f. (Rev. iv.) cor. to affection. A. E. 280. F., when pred. of the Lord, s. mercy, peace, and food. 222, 223, 2434. In an opp. sense, anger and aversion, because a bad man is angry and turns himself away. A. R. 939. They in the other life appear without a f., who have nothing of rational life; for when no f. appears, it is a sign that there is no cor. of the interiors with the grand man, inasmuch as every one appears in the light of heaven, in the other life, according to cor.; hence the infernals appear in horrible deformity. 5387. The f. rep. spiritual and celestial things existing in­teriorly with man. 5571. To cover the f. (Ezek. xii. 12) s. that truth should not at all be seen. 5044. To fall upon the f. of anyone s. influx. 6499.
FACE OF THE DEEP (Gen. i. 2) s. the lust of the unregenerate man, and the falsities thence originating. 18.
FACE OF THE EARTH, the, in the spiritual world is altogether like the face of the church, among the spirits and angels there; the most beautiful face is where the angels of the superior heavens dwell; and it is also beautiful where the angels of the interior heavens dwell; but unbeautiful where evil spirits are. A. E. 417.
FACE OF THE FATHER, to see the (Matt, xviii. 10), s. to receive divine good from the Lord. A. E. 254.
FACE OF JEHOVAH or of the Lord, the, s. the divine principle itself in its essence, which is divine love and divine wisdom, consequently, himself. The same is s. by the sun shining in his strength. (Rev. i. 6.) A. R. 53. The f. of J. (Num. vi. 25) s. divine love; by making his face to shine is s. the influx of divine truth; and by lifting up his face upon us is s. the influx of divine good. A. E. 340. The f. of the L., in a proper sense, is the sun of the angelic heaven. A. E. 412.
FACE OF A MAN, the, s. divine truth of the Word as to its wisdom. A. R. 243.
FACE OF THE WATER (Gen. i. 2) s. the knowledges of good and truth. 19.
FACES s. all the interior things of man, as well evil as good, by reason that they shine forth from the face. 2219. ” I have seen God f. to f.” (Gen. xxxii. 30), s. to sustain the most grievous temptations. 4299. All societies [in the spiritual world] have f. proper to them; when they go out the face changes; it is so with both the evil and the good. 4797.
FACES of the GROUND being DRIED (Gen. viii. 13) s. regeneration, when falsities no longer appeared. 898.
FACULTIES, the two, from the Lord with man are reason and freedom, or rationality and liberty. The Lord guards these as inviolate and sacred. D. P. 73, 96. When these two f. are one, they are called one mind. 65. They are what distinguish man from beast. D. L. W. 240.
FAINT,” to (Isa. li. 21), s. to be dissipated. A. E. 724. The f. of the earth s. those of the church who are not in truths, but yet desire them. A. E. 219. See Swoonings.
FAIR, to be (Ps. xlv. 3), s. to be wise. A. E. 684. The fairness of the angels originates from a love of inward truth, and exists according to the state of it. 5199.
FAIRS and MARKETS (Ezek. xxvii. 19) s. acquisitions of truth and good. 3923.
FAITH s. the implantation of truth. A. E. 813. F., in the internal sense, is nothing else than charity. 3121. F. (Rev. iii. 15) is called the beginning of the work of God. A. E. 226. There are three causes why they were healed who had f. in the Lord; first, that they acknowledged his divine omnipotence, and that he was God; secondly, that f. is acknowledgment, and an intuitive acknowledgment in the spiritual world, brings one present to another; thirdly, that all diseases which the Lord healed cor. to spiritual diseases, which could be only cured by the Lord, through the medium of the above acknowledgment, and by repentance of life, wherefore he often said, ” Thy sins are remitted; go and sin no more.” This f. also was rep. and s. by this miraculous f., but the f. whereby the Lord healed the spiritually diseased, is not given, except by truths from the Word, and by a life according to them, A. E. 815. The reason why the Lord called his disciples men of little f., when they could not do miracles in his name, and why he himself could not work miracles in his own country, on account of their unbelief, was because the disciples indeed believed the Lord to be the Messiah, or Christ the son of God, and a prophet as it was written in the Word, but had not as yet believed him to be the omnipotent God, and that Jehovah the father was in him, and so long as they believed him to be a man. and not also God, his divine, which is omnipotent, could not be present by f., for f. brings the Lord present, but not a f. in him as a man only ; which also is the cause why he could not perform miracles in his own country, because there they saw him from infancy as another man, wherefore they could not associate the idea of his divinity, and when this is not approached, the Lord indeed is present, but not with his divine omnipotence in man. A. E. 815. No one can have f., till he comes to exercise his thinking faculty. A. R. 776. Saving f. is a f. in the Lord God the Saviour Jesus Christ, because directed towards a visible God, in whom is the invisible. U. T. 337. Man receives f., in consequence cf approaching to the Lord, of learning truths from the Word, and of living a life in conformity thereto. U. T. 343. The internal acknowledgment of truth which is f., does not take place in any but those who are in charity. F. 13. Historical f. always precedes, before it becomes saving f., for then historical f. becomes saving f., when man learns truths from the Word and lives according to them. A. E. 815. Miraculous f. was the first f. with those among whom the new [or first Christian] church was instituted; it is also the first f. with all in the Christian world at this day, wherefore the miracles of the Lord were wrought, are described, and also preached. A. E. 815. Natural f. without spiritual is to think those things which are in the Word from self, and f. natural from spiritual, is to think those things which are in the Word from God, although this also appears as of ourselves. A. E. 790. F. induced by miracles is not f., but persuasion. D. P. 131, 133. F. is compared to the night, and love to the day, as in Gen. i., where, speaking of the great luminaries, it is said that the greater luminary, or the sun, which s. love, rules by day, and the lesser luminary, or the moon, which s. f., rules by night (Vs. 14, 16.) 709. F. brings the Lord present, but love conjoins. A. E. 815. F. is the eye of love. 3863.
FAITH of the NEW HEAVEN and NEW CHURCH, in its universal form, is this: that the Lord from eternity, who is Jehovah, came into the world to subdue the hells, and glorify his humanity, and that without him no flesh could be saved, and that all will be saved who believe in him. U. T. 2. The esse of the f. of the new church is confidence in the Lord God the Saviour Jesus Christ; secondly, a trust that he who lives a good life, and believes aright, is saved by him. The essence of the f. of the new church, is truth from the Word. The existence of the f. of the new church, is, first, spiritual light; secondly, an harmonious agreement of truths; thirdly, conviction; fourthly, acknowledgment inscribed on the mind. States of the f. of the new church, are, first, infant f., adolescent, or youthful f, adult f.; secondly, f. of genuine truth, and f. of appearances of truth; thirdly, f. of memory, f. of reason, f. of light; fourthly, natural f., spiritual f., celestial f.; fifthly, living f., and miraculous f.; sixthly, free f., and forced f. U. T. 344.
FAITH of PERSUASION. Those who are under its influence, are alluded to, in Matt. vii. 22, 23, xxv. 11, 12, and Luke xiii. 26, 27. N. J. D. 119. The f. of p. has no residence in the interiors of the soul, but stands, as it were, in an outer gate in the court of the memory, where it is ready for service, whensoever, it is called upon. N. J. D. 118.
FAITH ALONE. They who are therein, and pray from the form of their faith, cannot do otherwise than make God three, and the Lord two, because they pray to God the father that he would have mercy for the sake of the son, and send the holy ghost. A. R. 537, 611. It is of the divine providence of the Lord, that they who have confirmed themselves in f. a. falsify truths, lest, if they knew holy truths, they should profane them. A. R. 688. The second table of the decalogue is a blank table to those who are in f. a. A. R. 461. F. separated from charity, is destructive of the church, and of all things appertaining thereto. F. 69. They who are principled in f. separated from charity, were rep. in the Word by the Philistines, and by the dragon in the Revelations and by the goats in Daniel and Matthew. F. 57, 61.
FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH, to be (Rev. ii. 10), in the natural sense, s. that they [who are here alluded to] must not depart from their fidelity, until the end of their lives; but in the spiritual sense, that they must receive and acknowledge truths, until falses are removed, and, as it were, abolished by them; for this sense is properly for those who are in the spiritual world, who are not liable to death; wherefore, by death is here meant the end of their temptations. A. R. 102.
FAITHFUL WITNESS (Rev. i. 5) s. the Lord with respect to divine truth. A. R. 18.
FALL, to (Rev. xiv. 3), s. to be dispersed. A. R. 631. To f. down on the knees (Gen. xxiv. 11), s. to dispose to what is holy. 3054. To f. on the faces of his brethren (Gen. xxv. 18), s. contentions about truth, in which superiority is gained. 3277. To f. upon the faces and to adore God (Rev. vii.), s. testification of humiliation of heart, from the good of love, and by truths from that good. A. E. 463. To f. prostrate, s. humiliation, reception, and acknowledgment. A. E. 290.
FALLACIES are those things which man reasons and concludes from the natural man without spiritual light, which is the light of the understanding ill. from the Lord; for the natural man takes the ideas of his thought from earthly, corporeal, and worldly things, which in themselves are material, and when the thought of man is not elevated above them, he thinks materially of spiritual things, which thought without spiritual light is wholly derived from natural loves and their delights. A. E. 781. F. overshadow and lusts suffocate [the things of faith]. There are f. of the senses merely natural, and also of a spiritual kind. 5084.
FALLOW DEER s. affection of good and truth. 6413.
FALSE, the. The evil of the will of man when it forms itself in his thoughts, so that its quality may be manifested to others, or to himself, is called the f.; wherefore the f. is the form of evil, as truth is the form of good. A. E. 543. There is a f. derived from evil, or a f. of evil; and there is an evil derived from the f., or an evil of the false, and again a f. thence derived, and thus in succession. 1679, 2243. The f. which is not of evil can be conjoined with good, but not the f. of evil; because the f. which is not of evil, is the f. in the understanding, and not in the will; but the f. of evil is the f. of the understanding from evil in the will. D. P. 318. A. C. 2863. There are three origins of what is f.; viz., one from the doctrine of the church, another from the fallacies of the senses, and a third from the life of lusts. 4729. The extirpation of f., must first take place among the clergy, and by their means among the laity. U. T. 785.
FALSE CHRISTS (Matt, xxiv.) are falses, or truths not divine. 3010.
FALSE PROPHET s. the doctrine of the false, from the truths of the Word being falsified. A. E. 998.
FALSE WITNESS. Lies of every kind. A. E. 10.
FALSIFY, to, the Word is pred. of those who acknowledge the Word, but apply it to favor their own loves and the principles of their own proper intelligence. A. E. 535. To f. the Word, is to take truths out of it, and apply them to confirm what is false, which is to extract truths from the Word, and to destroy them. A. R. 566. To f. the Word, and to profane the Word, are two distinct things. A. R. 541.
FALSIFICATION of the Word, to the destruction of its genuine sense, shuts heaven. A. E. 888.
FAMILIES, in an internal sense, s. probity, and also charity and love, for all things relating to mutual love are regarded in the heavens as consanguinities and relationships. 1159. F. (Gen. viii. 19) s. goodnesses and truths arranged in man by the Lord, according to order. 917. F. (Nahum iii. 4) have respect to truths. A. E. 354. F. s. goodnesses when pred. of nations, but truths when pred. of people. (Ps. xxii. 27,28. Ps. xcvi. 7.) 1291.
FAMILIES, TONGUES, COUNTRIES, and NATIONS. (Gen. x. 20.) F. have respect to manners [or morals]; t., to opinions; c., in general, with respect to opinions; and n., in general, with respect to manners [or morals]. 1216. F. have respect to charity; t. have respect to faith; c have respect, in general, to the things appertaining to faith; and n. have respect, in general, to the things appertaining to charity. 1251.
FAMINE s. a deprivation and rejection of knowledges of good and truth proceeding from evils of life; it also s. ignorance of the knowledges of truth and good, proceeding from a want or scarcity thereof in the church and likewise s. a desire to know and understand them. A. R. 323 A. C. 2799. Men of f. s. a scarcity of celestial knowledges, and a multitude dried up with thirsts, a scarcity of spiritual knowledges. (Isa. v. 12.) 1460. F. s. the privation of the knowledges of truth and good, and pestilence s. infections from falses. A. E. 734.

In heaven they know no other f. than the Lord; because the f. is in him, and he is one with the f., and when they see him, they see the f. 15,2004. ” No man cometh unto the f. but by me ” (John xiv. 6), s. that the f. is approached when the Lord is approached.

FATHER and MOTHER, which a man is to leave (Gen. ii. 24, and Matt. xix. 4, 5), in a spiritual sense, are his proprium of will, and proprium of understanding. C. S. L. 194. In the spiritual sense by f. and m. is meant God and the church. U. T. 306.
FATHER and SON. The f. is in the s., and the s. in the f., and they are one, like soul and body in man, and thus they are one person. U. T. 112.
FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT s. the three essentials of the one and only God, Jesus Christ our Lord, in whose divine human person alone the whole divine trinity is concentrated, like soul, body, and operation in man. U. T. 164, 184.

By f. against s., and by s. against the f., is understood evil against truth, and truth against evil; and by m. against d., and by the d. against the m., is understood the lust of the false against the affection of truth, and vice versa.

FEAR has various significations according to the thing which causes it. A. R. 511. F. s. love. 5459. F. (Gen. xxviii. 17) s. an holy alteration. 3718. Holy f., which sometimes is joined with a sacred tremor of the interiors of the mind, and sometimes with horripilation, supervenes, when life enters from the Lord, instead of man’s proper life; in this holy f. was the prophet Daniel, John in the Apocalypse, Peter, James, and John, when the Lord was transfigured, the woman who saw him at the sepulchre, and others. A. R. 56.
FEAR NOT (Rev. i. 17; Dan. x. 5, 12; Matt. xvii. 5, 7; xxviii. 10, etc.) s. resuscitation to life, and at the same time adoration from the most profound humiliation. A. R. 56.

To f. s. to disbelieve, or not to have faith and love, (See Isa. xliii. 1,5; xliv. 8; Mark v. 36 ; Luke i. 73, 75; iv. 40; viii. 49; xii. 7, 32.) 2826
FEAR of GOD, the, as used in the Word, s. worship, either grounded in f., or in the good of faith, or in the good of love; worship grounded, in f., when the subject treated of is concerning the unregenerate ; worship grounded in the good of faith, when the subject treated of is concerning the spiritual regenerate; and worship grounded in the good of love, when the subject treated of is concerning the celestial regenerate. 2826. The f. of God (Gen. xx. 10) s. a regard for divine or spiritual truth. 2553. To f. God, s. not to do evil. A. R. 527, 628. To f. God and give glory to him, s. to worship the Lord from holy truths, and to worship, or adore him, s. to worship the Lord from the good of love. A. E. 606. To f. the Lord is to worship and revere him, for in worship and all things appertaining to worship, there is a holy and reverential f., which is grounded in the consideration that the object of worship is to be honored, and not by any means to be injured. A. E. 696.
FEAR and DREAD. F. has relation to evils, and d., to falses. 986. F. here is mentioned for the spiritual man, and d. has respect to the natural man. (Isa. viii. 13.) A. E. 696.
FEAR and STRAITNESS are the first beginning of temptations. 4249.
FEARFUL, the, s. those who have no faith. A. R. 891.

FEET, the, s. the natural principle, and when pred. of the Lord, his divine natural. 3761. A. R. 49. The f. cor. to the first, or ultimate heaven. A. E. 65. The place of his f. (Isa. Ix. 13) being spoken of the Lord, in a general sense, s. all things of heaven and the church, because the Lord as a sun is above the heavens; but in a particular sense, it s. the church in the natural world. A. E. 606. The reason why the moon was seen under the woman’s f. (Rev. xii. 1), is because the church on earth is understood, which is not yet in conjunction with the church in the heavens; moon s. intelligence in the natural man, and faith, and its appearing under the f. s. that it is about to be upon earth ; otherwise, by f. is s. the church itself when in conjunction. A. R. 533. To stand upon the f., s. to be reformed, as to the external or natural man. A. R. 510.

FEMALE ANGELS, those who are fond of children and love God. H. and H. 332.
FEMALE PRINCIPLE, the, is good grounded in truths. C. S. L. 61. A feminine p. produced from a male soul is from intellectual good, because this in its essence is truth; for the intellectual can think that this is good, thus that it is true, that it is good; it is otherwise with the will; this does not think what is good and true, but loves and does what is good and true, therefore by sons, in the Word, are s. truths, and by daughters, goods. C. L. S. 220.
FERMENT (Hosea vii. 4, and Luke xii. 1, etc.) s. the false of evil. D. P. 284. See Leaven.

FERVOR OF JEHOVAH, the (La. xxxiv. 2), s. repugnance. 3614.
FEVER. A f. burns from unclean heats collected together. When man falls into such disease, which he had contracted from his life, instantly an unclean sphere cor. to the disease, adjoins itself, and is present as the fomenting cause. 5715. See Ague, Swoonings.
FIBRES and NERVES. F. s. the inmost forms proceeding from good, and n. s. truths. 5435. Ends are also rep. by the principles from which f. proceed, such as they are in the brain ; the thoughts thence derived, are rep. by the f. from those principles; and the actions thence flowing, by the n., which are from the f. 5189. All the f. and all the vessels of those who are in hell, are inverted. D. P. 296.
FIELD s. doctrine and whatever respects doctrine. 368. F. s. the good of life, wherein are to be implanted the things appertaining to faith ; i.e., the spiritual truths of the church. 3310. F. s. the church, because the church as a f. receives the seeds of good and of truth; for the church is in possession of the Word, from whence those seeds are received; hence also it is, that whatever is in a f. s. also somewhat appertaining to the church, as sowing, reaping, ripe corn, wheat, barley, etc., but this with a difference. 3766. F. (Ps. xcvi. 12) s. the good of the church. A. E. 326. F. (Joel i. 12) s. the church as to reception and procreation of truth and good. A. E. 374. By the part of the f. on which it rained (Amos iv. 7), is s. the doctrine of f. originating in charity; and by the part, or glebe, on which it did not rain, is s. the doctrine of faith without charity. 382. To come from the f. (Gen. xxv.) s. the studious application of good. 3317.

A. R. 468, 494, 599. A consuming f. from heaven was a testification that they were in evils and falses. A. R. 599. Infernal f. is no other than the mutation of divine love into evil love, and into the lusts of doing evil and hatred. A. E. 504. Strange f.

Inasmuch as the Lord alone is f.-b., being essential good, and from his good is all truth, therefore, that Jacob, who was not the f.-b., might rep. him, it was permitted him to buy the primogeniture from Esau his brother, etc. 4925. The f.-b., in the spiritual sense of the Word, is good, for with infants the good of innocence is first infused by the Lord, by virtue of which man first becomes a man: now, since good is of love, and man does not reflect upon bis own love, but only upon the thoughts of his memory, and since good has not at first a quality, but acquires one when it is formed in truths, and without a quality nothing is perceived, hence it was unknown that good was the primary principle, or f.-b., for good is first conceived from the Lord in man, and is produced by truths, in which good is manifested, in its own form and effigy.

FIRST FRUITS, the, s. that which first springs up, and afterwards grows is a child grows up to a, man, or as a young infant grows up to a tree, and hence they s. all which follows, till a thing is complete ; for every thing that follows is in the first, as the man is in the infant, and the tree in the young plant; and whereas this first exists before its successions, in like manner in heaven and in the church, therefore, the f. f. were holy unto the Lord, and the feast thereof was celebrated.

[or blossoms] are those things which are of wisdom, or the goods of faith, because these proximately precede the rebirth or regeneration, and the fruits those things which are of life, or the works of charity, inasmuch as these are subsequent, and constitute the state itself of the regenerate. 5116.

That goodnesses and truths are man’s genuine f. or meat, may appear to every one, inasmuch as whosoever is deprived of them has not life, but is dead. The f., or meat, which the wicked want in another life, are the delights arising from evils, and the pleasantnesses arising from falses, which are the meats of death ; but the good in another life have celestial and spiritual f., which are the meats of life. 680, 681.

FREE-WILL. The Lord is continually present, and gives the faculty of doing good, but man should open the door, that is, should receive the Lord, and he then receives him, when he does good from his Word ; this, although it appears to man to be done, as it were, of himself, nevertheless it is not of man, but of the Lord with him; the reason why it, should so appear to man is, because he perceives no other, than that he thinks and acts from himself. A. E. 741. Man, during his abode in this world, is held in the midst between heaven and hell, and this in a spiritual equilibrium, wherein f.-w. consists. U. T. 475-478. Without f.-w., in spiritual things, the Word of God would be of no manner of use, and consequently, no church could exist. U. T. 483, 484. Without f.-w., in spiritual things, there would be nothing about man, whereby he might join himself by reciprocation with the Lord, and consequently, there would be no imputation, but mere absolute predestination, which is shocking and detestable. U. T. 485. On a supposition of man’s wanting f.-w., in spiritual things, it would be possible for all men throughout the world in the compass of one day to be induced to believe on the Lord; but the impossibility of such an effect taking place is grounded in this circumstance, that nothing remains or continues with man, but what is received freely, or from a free principle. U. T. 500-503.
