They who are being regenerated are first in a state of tranquillity, before they are in temptations, and afterwards they return to a state of tranquillity, which is also the end in the combats of temptations, 3696.
There is a conversion with a man who is being regenerated; then there is temptation; the reason, 5773.
That one is regenerated by means of temptations is because temptations remove the loves of self and the world, also from opposites they give relatives, and confirm goods and truths; and evils and falsities are subdued lest they dare to rise up again, 5356.
Men are not saved on account of temptations, if they succumb, nor are they who suppose they have earned it by means of them, for then a man has let slip the cognitions which he received by means of temptations, 2273.
