955. Verse 17. And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come, signifies that heaven and the church desire the Lord's coming. By "the Spirit" is signified heaven, by "the Bride" the church, and by "saying, Come" is signified to desire the Lord's coming. That the New Church, which is the holy Jerusalem, is meant by "the Bride," is evident (from chapter 21:2, 9-10) (see n. 881, 895); and that by "the Spirit" is meant heaven, is, because the angelic spirits are meant, of whom the New Heaven is to be formed, concerning whom above (chapter 14:1-7; 19:1-9; 20:4-5). By the church, which is here called "the Bride," is not meant the church consisting of those who are in falsities of faith, but the church consisting of those who are in truths of faith, for these desire light, consequently the Lord's coming, as above (n. 954).
