GARDEN OF EDEN REVEALED
THE REAL LOCATION OF GARDEN OF EDEN
This paper is going to discuss the GARDEN of EDEN in great detail. It will show you where, and what, this GARDEN is. How ADAM/EVE (mankind/us) was cast out and how we can and will return.
I also will touch briefly on a revelation that hit me yesterday that ties in great with the GARDEN… That is the relationship between HEROD and JESUS. Let me start with that and I will transition into the Garden, Promise!
Like all my papers, take a wild guess what HEROD and JESUS represent… The story of the war WITHIN US! If I have said it once, I have said it a Kabillion times, the BIBLE IS OUR STORY.
That’s right Herod and Jesus is another wonderful allegory of how our “outer man” or “ego” or whatever you want to call the DEAD MAN (Ignorant carnal first state of man) and our INWARD MAN (Christ) are at odds. How the OUTWARD/CARNAL/ANTICHRIST nature of MAN wants to kill the TRUTH of who we are! The story of Jesus coming into this world, how Joseph and Mary had to flee and how Herod wanted this “Messiah” dead is a wonderful allegory for what is happening within each of us.
(Disclaimer: This is NOT to say that there wasn’t a literal Jesus or Herod. So settle down those in the Religious Peanut gallery. What I am saying is NONE OF THAT MATTERS. So let’s look at what does, the REVELATION of scripture)
The FLESH/CARNAL/EGO/OUTER MAN hates the INWARD MAN/CHRIST
But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
We see this in the stories of ESAU (Flesh) wanting to kill JACOB. Ishmael and Isaac. Cane and Abel. The list goes on and on. The FLESH profits nothing, to be carnally minded is DEATH, so of course the FLESH (ignorant/carnal thinking) will always want to put to death the SPIRIT (which is LIFE and peace). In other words, WHO WE THINK WE ARE is KILLING who we REALLY ARE.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other:
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
So what is this telling us?
Well, that the CARNAL MAN (who we thought, or think, we are), The EGO who who believes to be the master of the universe, the one who believes “they are in control”, the EGO man is the ONLY ENEMY of God there is.
This CARNAL/EGO MAN is a creation of all of our experiences and brainwashing in this world. We were taught in this world to put our faith in our senses. (Sight, Touch, Taste, Smell, Hearing) and yet the Sixth sense is “I SEE DEAD PEOPLE” all around because of it!
The instant mankind was cast out of the GARDEN and starting living/existing OUTSIDE of THE GARDEN instead of WITHIN IT. Mankind DIED, they became scared of God, hid from God, in the BRANCHES AND TREES, (which I will explain in detail later) – MANKIND lost their unity of the SPIRIT and DIED (BECAME IGNORANT)
This is the FALL we ALL took place in. And it starts everytime we are born in this hellish world(lusts of the world).
We began to believe we were Joe, Bobbie, Tabitha, etc. etc… we began to believe we “our EGO nature” is all there is. And the way we began to believe this was by eating from that TREE in the MIDDLE of the GARDEN we were told NOT TO EAT FROM. So what was that TREE? … Slow down there Tonto, I’ll get to it.
Let me frist start any explain where and what the GARDEN of EDEN really is. So we can put all of this “looking for the real location of Eden” behind us. I know if this TRUTH got out, the History would be peeved, well at least they could still look for the remains of the Arc. (I’m being sarcastic “church”.
So, I’ll explain what the GARDEN OF EDEN is, then I’m going to get all SCIENTIFIC on you. Now pay attention because this is REALLY AMAZING. I learned this years ago and thought it much more than a coincidence, back then. But like everything else I write, today was the day for me to write it and share it with you all. Then it WILL BE up to you to go to GOD WITHIN and see if it is true. (NEVER take the word of a MAN, Let every man be a liar, but let GOD BE TRUE.)
But, I believe that you will give a big “WOW” after reading this.
SO LET US BEGIN!
In the middle of the GARDEN, GOD placed ADAM (which I hope by now you understand is an allegory for all of MANKIND.) In fact the NAME ADAM in HEBREW is translated as MANKIND!
Okay, so back to the GARDEN. MANKIND was place INSIDE it. And inside the GARDEN there was a TREE that MANKIND(ADAM) was forbidden to EAT THE FRUIT OF… Now see if you can catch this.
Before eating the FRUIT (what this forbidden tree produced) of this TREE in the MIDDLE OF THE GARDEN, Mankind ONLY existed INSIDE/WITHIN the Garden. They were one with God and everything, there was no pain, fear, guilt, they were naked and were not ashamed. But AFTER eating the fruit of this cursed TREE in the MIDDLE of the GARDEN, Mankind began LIVING OUTSIDE OF THE GARDEN, and OUTSIDE of this Garden there is no peace. (Some of you caught that, for those who didn’t, continue on… por favor!)
QUESTION ONE: WHAT IS MAN?
Is man his body, flesh, blood and bones? Or IS MAN HIS thoughts?
ANSWER: Man is the SPIRIT/THOUGHTS that exist WITHIN his BODY.
I will simply explain this using scripture. So you see MAN is not the OUTWARD FORM, but really MAN exists WITHIN the OUTWARD FORM or APPEARANCE. (note: This will tie into Herod and Jesus soon)
MAN is made in the IMAGE OF GOD. Man is made in CHRIST. We become/are the body, mind, of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
People are blind to who they are IN CHRIST, because of their EGO/CARNAL thinking. God only has ONE CHILD (Mankind) and that ONE CHILD are all either DEAD IN ADAM or ALIVE in CHRIST.
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
CHRIST is our LIFE SOURCE. Man and CHRIST are ONE. The problem is the CARNAL MAN (antichrist) thinks “He or She” is separate from God and everyone else, he lives in the TEMPORAL SENSUAL WORLD, he lives and exists OUTSIDE of HIMSELF (CHRIST).
Religion even places God, Heaven, and Christ OUTSIDE of us and says Jesus is STILL TO RETURN. Man places the TRUTH far away, when the TRUTH is WITHIN and always has been WITHIN. The problem is, if you are DEAD IN ADAM (ignorance) you don’t know who you are and you are living by your senses in the temporal world. You exist OUTSIDE OF YOURSELF (Christ) … But when CHRIST who is our LIFE is revealed to us/appears, we live and exist ONLY WITHIN.
CHRIST is our LIFE. Christ is the IMAGE of GOD. And where is CHRIST FOUND AGAIN? …. WITHIN US!
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
I went through all of this to SHOW YOU, that MANKIND (ADAM) was PLACED WITHIN the GARDEN of EDEN.
In other words, Mankind is not his body or anything EXTERIOR. The CARNAL MAN puts his faith and hope in everything outside of himself. The CARNAL man loves looking at themselves in the mirror, making muscles and all sorts of nonsence… (Or is that just me?) snicker, snicker… But CHRIST IS WITHIN us.
MANKIND (the IMAGE OF GOD) = CHRIST was placed WITHIN US.
Okay with that all said and done.
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
What do you think that GARDEN is “CHURCH”, the ONE Man was PLACED INSIDE.
If MAN is not Flesh, as the FLESH profits nothing. If MAN is the SPIRIT within the BODY. Paul says we are to know NO MAN after the Flesh, but after the SPIRIT!
I shouldn’t really even have to explain this, but MAN is NOT the EXTERIOR FORM, Man lives WITHIN the exterior form. But that doesn’t mean that MAN LIVES WITHIN where he should, and that is the cause of all the suffering in this world and our lives.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Catch that? Suffering presently because we put our faith and trust outside of ourselves, but the GLORY IS REVEALED IN US…
I digress, if MAN is NOT the EXTERIOR form. And we know MANKIND’S LIFE is CHRIST, which is SPIRIT not flesh and bone. Then MAN was PLACED within this BODY/FORM.
For ye shall be as a garden that hath no water.
I’ll come right out and tell you this…. The Garden is YOU! It is YOU, YOU, YOU! YOU are the GARDEN that CHRIST WAS PLACED IN. And DIED IN! And shall RESURRECT in.
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre
Where was CHRIST crucified again? GOLGATHA (The place of the SKULL) – The TRUTH was killed WITHIN US, in our MINDS. This is why, there was a GARDEN, and in that GARDEN A NEW TOMB.
Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre
Translation: “Now in the place where our TRUE LIFE was put to death there was a BODY, and in this BODY a TOMB.”
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
Where CHRIST (Our TRUE LIFE) was crucified there was a GARDEN and A TOMB. And CHRIST IS WITHIN. Killed at the PLACE OF THE SKULL. The Hope of Glory is not CHRIST coming OUTSIDE, but being REVEALED WITHIN.
WE, our BODIES, EGO’S, who we THINK WE ARE is the GARDEN of EDEN. God planted this GARDEN so he could place HIS IMAGE inside it TO TEND IT.
Why do you think Mary after, Jesus’s resurrection supposed him to be a GARDENER, the one who TENDS to the GARDEN (US)
The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (Reign of GOD’S TRUTH/Christ) is WITHIN. And look at what it is compared to.
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
The KINGDOM OF HEAVEN/CHRIST is all WITHIN US. We (who we think we are) is the GARDEN. And here the REIGN OF GOD’S WAYS is pictured as a TREE that GROWS into a GREAT TREE. (This TREE allegory will soon blow you away)
Because believe it or not this has SCIENTIFIC MERIT! Which I will soon get to.
So the GARDEN IS US, CHRIST is within us. So how did we begin to look for salvation outside of us? When did we begin to exist OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES (The Garden) instead of being one with the SPIRIT OF TRUTH within… Well let’s go to the beginning… Literally.
In GENESIS we see how ADAM/EVE were ONE until a deep SLEEP (ignorance) came upon MANKIND. a quick note, GOD DID THIS. He made MANKIND IGNORANT. There is a reason for this.
So, the SPIRIT OF GOD (ADAM) and the SOUL OF MAN (EVE) were SEPERATED –WITHIN THE GARDEN (US).
God did this because he knew it was not good for MANKIND TO BE ALONE (ONE)… So he separated the SOUL OF MAN from the SPIRIT OF GOD. Now we believe there are many, when truly there is only CHRIST.
WE are the GARDEN that all of this takes place IN.
What and who is the TREE OF LIFE (CHRIST) = WISDOM is a tree of life.
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
What is the TREE that kills? What is the CURSED TREE that when EVE AND ADAM ate from the fruit of they DIED (Became IGNORANT)? You ask.
Well both of these TREES are WITHIN US.
And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
Now here is where the SCIENCE of our anatomy makes you go, COOOOOOL!
When MANKIND ate of the TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL, he DIED. Which means, Mankind (adam) became ignorant of his connection to God and everything. He was CAST OUT of the Garden.
This is pictured today as how all of us exist. We put our faith in what we see, touch, taste, smell, etc. That is what “we believe” is REAL TO US. And so we are LIVING outside OURSELVES (THE GARDEN) but in this exterior existence there will be no peace or freedom. Only thorns (cares of the world and lusts thereof)
So what was this NASTY TREE Mankind ate from that messed us up?
Well if we are the GARDEN PHYSICALLY, then the TREE in the MIDDLE OF US physically, would be called the NERVOUS SYSTEM!
WHATEVER JACOB! (Don’t believe me? Read on, IF YOU DARE!!!! Dun dun dunnnnnnn!)
It is interesting that our senses which is also our curse is in the Middle of us. It even looks like a TREE smack dab in the middle of us, don’t you think?
Here is a brief scientific explanation of what the NERVOUS SYSTEM does. And I clipped this from Kids Health. I figured a child like explanation was better for me, because I am not really that bright (insert smiley face)
ANATOMY OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM: “If you think of the brain as a central computer that controls all bodily functions, then the nervous system is like a network that relays messages back and forth from the brain to different parts of the body. It does this via the spinal cord, which runs from the brain down through the back and contains threadlike nerves that branch out to every organ and body part.”http://kidshealth.org/parent/general/body_basics/brain_nervous_system.html
NERVES THAT BRANCH OUT? — Well, there is another revelation waiting there “CHURCH”. BRANCHES.
In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
You see, a BRANCH in scripture is an allegory for a THOUGHT, or THOUGHTS. And yes, once again SCIENCE backs this all up. Check it “CHURCH”
“Neurobiologists have gained new insights into how neurons control growth of the intricate tracery of BRANCHES called dendrites that enable them to connect with their neighbors. Dendritic connections are the basic receiving stations by which neurons form the signaling networks that constitute the brain’s circuitry”
DENDRITES look like the branches of a TREE. Looks almost like a FOREST of BRANCHES, doesn’t it. This is why they are called the BRANCHES. “Branches of Thought” — It is also another reason I subtitled my NOVEL, THE CALLING “A VOICE IN THE DEAD WOODS”
The DEAD WOODS – being an allegory for MANKIND being lost in their CARNAL IGNORANT THOUGHTS/LIES/IMAGINATIONS.
Now here is where is gets COOL and WEIRD. This DENDRITIC CONNECTIONS are what makes our THOUGHTS… BRANCHES = THOUGHTS. Now watch this.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
CHRIST is our LIFE, we (OUR THOUGHTS) are the EXPRESSION of that LIFE. Now wait it gets better.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Every THOUGHT rooted in OUR LIFE’S TRUTH grows and flourishes. But every THOUGHT (BRANCH) that is NOT rooted in this LIFE will be destroyed!
This has nothing to do with literal people being cast into infinite torture and burned endlessly. HOGWASH! This scripture has to do with how God redeems us with the TRUTH. Every DENDRITIC CONNECTION, every BRANCH, every THOUGHT that doesn’t produce the FRUIT OF CHRIST will ultimately be cast away.
Remember, WE ARE THE GARDEN. Christ was placed INSIDE the GARDEN to TEND IT.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
But CHRIST (the TRUTH) died the INSTANT MANKIND’S SOUL followed after the SNAKE HANGING on that TREE (NERVOUS SYSTEM) in the middle.
Now here is where it gets REALLY weird. There is LITERALLY A SNAKE hanging from that TREE (The nervous system). It is called the REPTILIAN BRAIN. Don’t believe me? Well, look it up, or just read on, yet another scientific paragraph I clipped for you.
THE REPTILIAN BRAIN/COMPLEX
“The R-complex consists of the brain stem and the cerebellum. Its purpose is closely related to actual physical survival and maintenance of the body. The cerebellum orchestrates movement. Digestion, reproduction, circulation, breathing, and the execution of the “fight or flight” response in stress are all housed in the brain stem. Because the reptilian brain is primarily concerned with physical survival, the behaviors it governs have much in common with the survival behaviors of animals. It plays a crucial role in establishing home territory, reproduction and social dominance. The overriding characteristics of R-complex behaviors are that they are automatic, have a ritualistic quality, and are highly resistant to change.”http://www.buffalostate.edu/orgs/bcp/brainbasics/triune.html
The REPTILIAN brain is bascially our lowest ANIMAL LIKE NATURE. The beastly qualities found in man. When we are seduced away by this, the LOWEST PART of our TRIUNE BRAIN (Limbic system, neo-cortex, Reptilian cortex) – We exist in the LUSTS OF THIS WORLD.
This is the SNAKE (our basest carnal thoughts) that is constantly trying to get us to bow down and worship him. And the most enlightening phrase in the above article is that the REPTILIAN BRAIN is highly resistant to change.
THE FLESH (sensual/carnal thinking) hates the SPIRIT (Truth,God, Our LIFE/CHRIST)
For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
ONCE MANKIND started EATING (assimilating their knowledge) through the FRUIT (SENSES) provided by the NERVOUS SYSTEM (TREE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GARDEN). Mankind began to exist OUTSIDE of themselves, and it was the SNAKE that got us to do so.
Think about your life. What brings you comfort and joy? What makes you feel stable?
I would lying if I were to say, I didn’t care what people thought of me. I would be deceiving you all if I were to say that when I am hurt by people it doesn’t get me down. I would be lying if I were to say the weather and my circumstances don’t dictate my mood. I would be lying to you all if I said, “I don’t care if I’m in debt” and if I said, “I don’t feel safe with more money in the bank, I feel safe because I TRUST SOLEY IN GOD.”
Here is my point, even with ALL OF THIS understanding, that the TRUTH is WITHIN and that the answers are not WITHOUT. I myself find it hard to RE-ENTER the Garden of God while my EXTERNAL (CARNAL MAN) is fighting to keep me focused on the FRUIT of the TREE (NERVOUS SYSTEM).
But the TRUTH is within us all, and we will OVERCOME THE WORLD, because CHRIST IN US overcame it first. But why is it so hard to just ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM once and for all! Why do we struggle, suffer, etc, etc?
Well, there was placed at the GARDEN entrance something to KEEP US from re-entering in again.
So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
What you’ll find interesting is these CHERUBIM are also woven in the VEIL that keeps people from the holiest of holies. These CHERUBIM are also on either side of the MERCY SEAT, keeping the MERCY SEAT in DARKNESS/SHADOW.
So let me tell you what these CHERUBIM are. The TRANSLATION for CHERUBIM is “IMAGINERY CREATURE” – which means, THEY DON’T EXIST.
This CHERUBIM is WHO WE THINK WE ARE. I know this is a lot of take in. But our CARNAL EGO is what keeps the TRUTH hidden WITHIN. It is our CARNAL EGO that keeps us LIVING OUTSIDE THE GARDEN (US) instead of WITHIN (where God and Christ sit)
O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between/WITHIN the cherubims.
Where else does God dwell “church”? … IN US!
And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.
A SHADOW blocks the LIGHT. The CHERUBIM keep the TRUTH HIDDEN within. This is what is keeping us from ENTERING INTO ETERNAL LIFE. (to know God and who we are)
This is why we must DIE TO OURSELVES (OUR EGO) You see, it is this COVERING CHERUB (flesh/carnal ego) that is keeping us from entering in.
Which brings us to HEROD and JESUS.
HEROD wanted JESUS dead. The ORIGINAL meaning and translation of the word “HEROD” from the GREEK, means “Outer covering, appearance” and Heroic.
Isn’t that something. HEROD – the OUTER COVERING/APPEARANCE/MAN’S FLESH wants to KILL Christ.
Remember, Herod was only a TEMPORARY KING set up by CARNAL MAN. He did not want to stop being in control. This is a symbol of why MANKIND teaches and believes “they are in control”, this antichrist nature in MAN wants to KILL the TRUTH for fear of losing control.
And while HEROD was on the hunt for CHRIST. Christ was forced to go HIDE IN EGYPT. (Bondage of the Flesh) – And it wouldn’t be until the OUTER COVERING CHERUB/HEROD (Man’s carnal nature is KILLED OFF) that CHRIST can RETURN to be revealed to ISRAEL.
Matthew 2: 19But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child’s life. 21And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
So there is our entrance again into the GARDEN. The Hope of Glory is CHRIST WITHIN US, this is our TRUE NATURE.
For we were baptized into Christ’s death in the GARDEN, GOLGATHA, in our THINKING. But we are also RESURRECTED with CHRIST IN LIFE.
So stop eating from that TREE WITHIN. Stop putting your faith in the SEEN, FELT, TASTED, AND HEARD, and start putting your faith in the UNSEEN.
Romans 8: 23And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. 24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? 25But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
