Friends and honest truth seekers everywhere,
I hear this SCREAMING at me again from within as I exercise to the ESV audio bible of Genesis 1-4.
God has brought me back to the beginning again studying Genesis.
As you know, we have been taught by the Christian tradition that there is a SINGLE garden where God placed “Adam”. It’s name was the “Garden of Eden”.
However, is that what SCRIPTURE says? Have you personally studied the original Hebrew words yourself? Or are you going by what someone else has told you? I know I have for years. Now, I see something COMPLETELY different when I study the original language myself.
I hope and pray you will look at it yourself. It’s not “rocket-science” but it does require a person to take their head out of their religion and use their God-given brain.
Would you be shocked to find that scripture actually tells us there is MORE THAN ONE garden?
That’s right. Please allow me show you what scripture REALLY reveals.
But first, let me ask you a question. Actually, two.
How precise is God? How accurate is God?
Is he 95% precise and accurate? 98%? 99%? 99.99999999%?
Or would agree that he is 100% precise and accurate 100% OF THE TIME?
This, is VERY important to understand before we go further.
God MUST BE 100% accurate 100% of the time. He is the one who CREATED all sciences, ALL life forms, Man, The Earth, DNA, ALL natural laws, the Universe, INFINITY, etc..
Can he be the tiniest FRACTION of a FRACTION off?
Just ask any astrophysicist how perfectly the Sun is aligned to the Earth. They say that if it were just a TINY fraction off in either direction, life would NOT BE POSSIBLE on Earth.
God can’t be .000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 off, can he? Or he wouldn’t be “THE” (single, whole, one) truth would he?
That is right. God is 100% accurate 100% OF THE TIME with absolutely NO possibility of the smallest error. He can’t make an error, it’s impossible. Please stop and think about what that means before going on. That one truth is extremely important to grasp or we will miss the ONE true God and be seeing a god of our own imaginations. My life’s mission is to help you see the ONE TRUE God as he revealed himself in is 100% precise, 100% detailed ORIGINAL Greek and Hebrew language. You will be in awe of him. He is your true father! You know, the one that your very heart longs to know since you were born?
So, please never forget that God IS truth. This doesn’t mean God “tells us the truth”. He IS truth, the single, whole truth as ONE entity.
So, how detailed is God then?
Is he 95%, 98%… 99.9999999999 …
Well you the idea right?
HE IS 100% DETAILED and 100% PRECISE and ACCURATE 100% OF THE TIME. It is impossible for God to miss a detail or to be wrong in the smallest way possible!
Now, with that in mind, let’s ponder something very important.
If God created something and that one single unique item had something different about it, like say, A NAME, wouldn’t he HAVE to tell you EXACTLY WHICH ONE he was referring to and use the specific name of that thing?
For example, let’s say that God created a garden and placed it “Eastward” in Eden. This garden had no name. He just refers to it as “The Garden”. Now, lets’ say he ALREADY had another garden that he gave a specific name to such as “Garden of Eden”. Let me ask you a question.
Can we assume these two are the SAME GARDEN?
Because God is 100% precise and 100% accurate and 100% detailed.
God would have told us that he “named” or “called” the first garden which he referred to as “The garden” as the “Garden of Eden”. If he did that then we would know that the gardens were the same, single garden.
BUT HE DIDNT!
Look at these verses my friend!
The Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed Genesis 2:8
So, this is the first mention of “a garden” in Genesis. The first mention of anything in the Bible is very important as it lays the “foundation” or creation of that thing. What title does God put on this garden? Remember, he is 100% accurate always. If this garden has a name, he has to use that name here.
He calls it “a garden toward the East (in) Eden”. Btw, the word “in” is NOT in the original language. It actually says “a garden eastward Eden”, but we can go with this translation. So, the TITLE of this specific garden is “a garden toward the East” in Eden.
Are you with me so far?
Now, please look very closely at the end of Genesis 2:8 and see WHO he put there. Who is it? Again, remember, God is VERY specific and 100% precise.
Answer: “The man he had FORMED“. He didn’t put ANYONE else in this one particular garden titled “a garden toward the East (in) Eden”. He put the man he had formed (who was a living soul) into this specific garden he called “a garden toward the East” (in) Eden.
So, PLEASE notice that he had PUT the man he had formed INTO this one very particular, specific garden in Genesis 2:8.
Now, let’s look at the next time a garden is mentioned.
Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it Genesis 2:15
Now, please don’t automatically assume these are the SAME garden and the SAME man. I am telling you THEY ARE NOT!
Remember, God ALREADY placed “the man he had formed” into the “garden toward the east (in) Eden” in verse 7. So, why would he AGAIN place the same man a SECOND time into the same garden.
It is TWO different types of “man” and TWO totally different gardens!
This is so awesome to see as it reveals the secret that God has kept hidden since the beginning of time!
Please stop and notice that THIS garden has A SPECIFIC NAME and that name already existed BEFORE this verse. We are not told where the name came from. This specific garden already named “The Garden of Eden” existed BEFORE this time. It was named by God himself before Genesis.
It is NOT THE SAME GARDEN! My friend, there are TWO GARDENS!
But wait, it gets EVEN better.
Now, look at who he put there.
That, my friend is a DIFFERENT “man” than “the man he formed“. Remember, God is 100% accurate and 100% detailed all the time! He can’t skip a detail or he would not be telling the truth.
There are also TWO DIFFERENT “men”! Really it is two different types of “man” but both are named “man”. Study Genesis 1:26-27 and Genesis 5:1-2 in the original Hebrew language. Pay close attention to the original word “created”. Turns out one means “birthed” and one means “formed” or “created”! One is THE Son and one is his creation. Both types of “man” are named “man”. Confusing huh? God has hid a lot from us but let’s praise him together for what he is revealing in these very last days of this age!
You can even follow this POWERFUL truth in Genesis 2 and 3 to find that one man ALREADY had a name and he was called “Adam” which is Strong’s #121 and the other one didn’t. He is just referred to as “the man” or “him” or “he” which is Strong’s #120 where as “Adam” (Strong’s #121) is always referred to by “Adam”. (Friend, I want to go much deeper on this as the Lord is revealing to me, but can’t now. I am very excited to show what else he has been revealing about the “creation”.)
Do you see how this is TWO DIFFERENT gardens and TWO DIFFERENT men?
If you do, you are blessed by Jesus as he is revealing this to you right now inside your heart and TRUE mind. This one concept of how precise God is will change the ENTIRE way you view the Word of God. If you see this, get ready for FIREWORKS as he will show you so many amazing and powerful yet mind-blowing things.
Back to the “two gardens” and “two types of man”.
Do you remember the powerful parable that Jesus told us in Matthew 13 about the “wheat and the tares”? If not, please look at it and be amazed and awed by his power and goodness. Here is a link:
Could we be seeing that very truth being revealed way back in the garden(s)? Is it possible that God really never does change?
I am confident that is what is happening.
Our loving father is revealing that the wheat who are “in THE Son” and the tares who are not were separated from BEFORE this current creation or “version” of the Heavens and The Earth. They grew together in one body or “field”, but they were separate from the very beginning. They each had a garden that existed in different realms of man and spiritual earth itself. One had a name and one didn’t.
Jesus is bringing them both together as one body and already has. Look at this now with a NEW set of eyes.
But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, 15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, 16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity Ephesians 2:13-16
Up to this point, we simply have not seen this most powerful truth as we were looking at it with “the eyes of the tare”. You have to look through the eyes of the “wheat”. I pray you are seeing it now.
God bless you and may the Lord and our father God speak to your open heart on these things. I pray he will allow me to share the deeper things about man and the creation of the earth soon.
Hope your day is blessed and full of his peace when you ponder these things and the light of Jesus appears in your inner man.
