Four Rivers Flowed Out of Eden (Part 5)
Sep 7, 2016
Gen. 2:10 – Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers.
Gen. 2:10 says, “Now a river (Holy Spirit, flowing, to shine, light, burn, be radiant, assemble flow together, be light) flowed out (come out of, went forth) of Eden (from the habitation of man, which was paradise, and a delightful pleasurable spot) to water (to drink and be watered, that is nourished) the garden; (state of being in Christ, His bride) and from there it divided and became four rivers.
The River of the Holy Spirit flowed out of the habitation of Man and watered (poured forth the Spirit), as His Bride, His garden. It became a universal extension of His government of a choice, select company who live and have their being in Christ as heads of the Mountains (highest order of authority and power) of the Lord representing Him in the earth that the knowledge of the glory of God would cover the earth.
In the beginning God put a RIVER (to shine, light, burn, flow to all peoples by and through the Holy Spirit in Adam) in Eden (the habitation of man, a delightful pleasurable spot) to water (to drink of the Holy Spirit) the garden (a state of being in Christ) and it split (divided) into four (globular, universal) rivers (to receive into the soul, to refresh, strengthen, nourish into life eternal, to drink of the living water to become a company of leaders, chiefs of cities, nations, family and priest). Through mankind (ADAM) God’s power and authority would flow to bring forth healing to all people; as long as Adam watched and kept the presence of GOD in His GARDEN (as a cultivated place of the Holy Spirit also known as paradise).
Gen.2:11-12 – The name of the first is Pishon; (free flowing, increase, be fat and to disperse) it flows around the whole land of Havilah, (to travail, twist, dance,) where there is gold (divine nature). (12) The gold of that land is good; the bdellium (an excellent, selected & chosen pearl) and the onyx stone (that has been blanched & purified in fire) are there.
As Adam kept watch and protected the presence of God in the Garden, the habitation of God, he flowed freely (Pishon) in the power and authority of the Holy Spirit that increased, spread, and went forth in righteousness as His chosen who have been purified through the fire (bdellium) that would flow throughout the EARTH by the declaration of Adam’s mouth.
As we have seen in Genesis 2:10 the main River in the Garden, the River of the Holy Spirit, branched out into four river heads (which was also symbolic of a governmental company of God in the habitation of MAN (Adam) made of light and glory of the fire of God that divided into four (globular, universal) corners (river heads that branched out as the top of Mountain; that is supreme governmental power and authority of Christ as His choice company of chief heads that are symbolic of the height of stars as light, illumination and understanding into the whole earth).
Isaiah 11:4 – But with righteousness He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; and He will strike (smite, destroy, and send judgment,) the earth with the rod (His branch, His chosen with a scepter of correction) of His mouth, (word in his mouth, of His speech & language), and with the breath (Spirit) of His lips (boundary, and conclusion, of a consummation, of His finished work) He will slay (put to death, kill) the wicked (those who are ungodly, guilty and lawless).
In other words, His chosen, His elect will slay the wicked with the breath of the Spirit in their mouth.
In Genesis 2:10-14 the names of the rivers are given. The rivers have an order and speak of what we become as we allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in all things.
The rivers and their meanings are as follows:
1. Pishon means free flowing, increase, to spread, be fat and to disperse. It was located in the land of Havilah which means circle, wait anxiously, travail, whirl and to dance (Gen. 2:11).
2. Gihon means the river of bursting forth or breaking forth. It was located in the land of Cush, which means black, the land occupied by the descendants of Cush located around the southern parts of the Nile (Ethiopia), (Gen. 2:13).
Micah 4:10 – Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now, shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.
Galatians 4:19 – My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.
3. Hiddekel or Tigris River means rapid, active, vehement, enter into a privy chamber or inner chamber (Gen. 2:14).
Daniel 10:4-6 – And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel (active in the inner chamber of the King; ) (5) Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins (procreative power) were girded with fine gold (divine nature) of Uphaz (region producing gold, that represent lightning-as sons of God, with illumination, understanding): (6) His body also was like the beryl (precious stones, of Chrysolite also known as Topaz that are one of stones in breastplate of High priest), and his face (identity) as the appearance of lightning (light, sons of God, become arrows of illumination, understanding and revelation,), and his eyes (vision, sight, insight & understanding as lamps of fire of the 7 spirits of God), and his arms and his feet like in color to polished brass (judgment & justice), and the voice of His words like the voice of a multitude (overcomers, elect, chosen).
When we live in the inner chamber of the King, Christ Jesus we will appropriate His character and procreative power as His manifested sons with understanding, illumination and revelation. These are those who have qualified to rule and reign with Christ in the millennium as a VOICE of a multitude, that is His elect, His chosen, His precious stones.
Revelation 4:5 – “And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD
4. Euphrates means to increase, break forth and become fruitful (Gen. 2:14).
From One Main River, the River of the Holy Spirit, four Rivers branched out of Eden, out of Paradise, which was the Garden that ran out of Adam.
The river is symbolic of the Holy Spirit who is the Light, the Living Water. The Living Word is Christ who flows out of His bride symbolic of the garden (Adam, Eden – habitation of man) being one, in union with God.
When we are in the presence of and in unity, in heart and mind, with God, we inhabit/become the garden. In this state, the main river of the Holy Spirit is within us. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit we spread and branch out like the four rivers. Like the Pishon, we are free flowing and spreading in worship and praise which causes us to be like the Gihon, bursting forth with vision and understanding which causes us to be like the Hiddekel (Tigris), rapidly entering into the chamber of God’s presence to reproduce like the Euphrates, the fruitfulness of His power, authority, and glory. We become God’s voice; His voice going out to the four corners of the earth. We become the voice of the multitude.
