The Garden was Within Adam (Part 2)
Sep 2, 2016
The Garden is who God is in us, a pleasant cultivated place that is delightful. He is Spirit and when we come into agreement with that environment, which is the Word and the life of the Spirit, we will manifest Him.
Galatians 4:6 says, “God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son you’re your hearts […]”
The dictionary defines a garden as a rich cultivated spot or tract, a delightful place. So is our garden when we are in the Spirit. We become the habitation of the very nature and character of the Most-High God, manifesting His presence. We become one with Him (John 17:21). It is no longer just a word that we have learned to quote but it is the reality of the manifestation of Who God is in us. We become a living example and expression of the Word because we are manifesting Him in our lives. As we are cultivated by the living Word of God and His Spirit, we become a rich, delightful habitation of the Most-High God; His garden.
Adam was to tend the garden, to guard it, to be a watchman and to have charge over it. He was to be in charge of everything within it. In the garden there was a main River which branched off into four separate rivers. The four rivers poured forth into the whole earth. We know the number four has a globular/universal meaning that the rivers cover all four corners of the earth.
Genesis 2:15 says, “And the Lord God took MAN and put him in the Garden to tend and keep it.”
Here is the verse again with more detail.
