The Lord is never angry with anyone, still less curses him, 245.

To love the Lord is to live according to His precepts: shown, 10829.
And then He put off the human from the mother, and put on the Human from the Father, 10830.
Spirits from some earth in the universe on the Lord, 10736-10738.
They are confounded by strangers through the idea of three persons in one God; the quality of which idea: illustrated, 10736.
They can have the idea of three in one, as of an angel-the internal invisible, the external visible under the human form, and the proceeding; and they know that God is; they are also confirmed by reason that the ancients similarly acknowledged God as a man; concerning which in the Word, 10736, 10737.
