Access To The Garden Of Eden?
Did you know that the Garden of Eden is still around?
Many Jews and Christians, if asked, believe that it was an ancient garden, that existed in the Middle East, that has given way to the ravages of time. As a matter of fact, there has been many documentaries on TV, YouTube, etc., concerning the ancient location of the garden. Many try to locate it by using the geographical information found within the bible. However, no one has been successful, leading scholars to speculate that it is under water, within the Persian Gulf.
What most people don't know is that access, to the Garden, is still possible, by man. How do I know? Well, think about it. Would God waste resources, by having the most powerful angels guarding it, if it wasn't accessible? In Genesis 2:9 and Revelation 22, the Bible clearly shows that Eden and, at least, the Tree of Life, are still there, but are being block by Cherubim, with flaming swords.
So why hasn't someone found it? Quite simple. Within the Garden, the Tree of Life can be found. If we believe what the Bible tells us, anyone who eats from the Tree of Life, lives forever. The Bible tells us that sin cause death and blinds us to the truth. Does that mean that we can't see the entry to the Garden and the Tree of Life, because of our sin. I think the answer can be found in old Jewish teachings.
We are told that Adam and Eve and all creation, resembled God and reflected his Shekinah. Moses showed this phenomena, when God have him the Law on Mt. Sinai. Also, when Elisha prayed for God to reveal the spiritual army protecting them, to his servant and when God separated the light from the darkness. So, were Adam, Eve, Angels, etc., clothed in the light of his Glory? Was this clothing of light part of the dimensionality, man lost, when they sinned? You see, the ability to see or perceive the spirit dimension was lost. As time went on and man indulged further and further into his sinfulness, he lost his spiritual sight.
Now, with the sacrifice, of the Messiah, for mankind's sin, and the Remnant's desire to walk closely with God, can our spiritual eyes be opened, making access to the garden possible or at least catch a glimpse of it? I don't know. However, one thing I do know, when we do obtain our new bodies, bodies again clothed in light, after the resurrection, we will have full access to the Garden and the Tree of Life. We will have full access to it's twelve kinds of fruit, with it's root system straddling the river, which flows from the Throne of God. As for me, I think it will be pretty cool.
