The Gardener

January 23, 2012

There is a great King who rules over the entire universe, a kingdom, which He created to be nations over which His sons would rule. In order to plant these lands and beautify them with a garden of flowers and fruitful trees, He would need sons of light for the corruption of darkness or evil was on the face of the deep, ready and waiting to permeate the kingdom, and suck it back into the darkness. It was the force of death, coming against the light.

Now, the King passed on the seed of His Spirit to His sons – who were to become His inheritance, Garden keepers and subduers of the kingdom planet of earth. Lucifer was first, with the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty, in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was his covering, as befitting a son of the King. He was the created and anointed cherub who covers and was established on the holy mountain of God. Unfortunately, iniquity was found in him and he was cast from the midst of the fiery stones to the ground; he had become prideful of who he was. He became ashes upon the earth and a horror who would be no more forever (see Ezekiel 28: 11-19).

This allowed the darkness to enter through the door-opener of evil with a lie about the truth of God, to put out the light, causing the corruption of all that was made good. Because evil is a deadly disease, which spreads like leaven to fill the entire universe, the judgment of the King and Father was severe.

It was upon the earth that the Father shone the light of His second Son, giving the inheritance of the kingdom to Him. He would have the job of redeeming the lost planet so there could be no further spread of corruption to the rest of the universe, which would suck the creation back into the death hole of darkness.

And so began the redemptive work of the second Son who had taken the enormous task upon His shoulder to re-establish the light of His Father upon the first fallen planet where life begins with the flowers of fruitfulness, in a setting where all is made good. The first labor of the Son was to separate the darkness from the light, which shone down to create a garden of beauty and goodness where the Law of truth would rule and must be obeyed, in order to keep the darkness out. The Garden would have a wall of truth with a river of living water surrounding it to keep the earth subdued.

Now, They chose to create man as a partner for the Son and place him in this Garden of beauty, where, together, the Son and His bride would become the inheritance for the Father, the God of truth – a family of the brethren, created in Their image. This was a Son who wanted to be fruitful and provide a blessing to the credit of the Father He loved and worshiped as a dutiful Son. It would require a sacrifice on His part and the continuous attacks from the wicked devil who hated Him for receiving the lost inheritance, which he so badly wanted. Most of all, the devil wanted to be worshiped like the Most High God.

The Father prepared the way for the second Son by saying, “Let there be light.” And so began the creation of the Garden on earth (see Proverbs 8:29-31). The Son was full of the Spirit of the Father, which dispelled all darkness. He then separated the evil deadly waters from the good living water of His heavenly Father above. He went straight into the territory, east of Eden whence would come the lies of religion, there, to begin the process of providing all things good for man. He watered his food only from the mist that went up and then returned from above.

He would leave one tree for the test of man to be sure that the lies of the devil could not lure His beloved fruit-bearing partner into the same darkness into which Lucifer (he became known as the devil and Satan) had fallen in pride. The Angel of light would allow the serpent, into which the devil had entered, to enter the forbidden tree. There he would offer man the lure of the religious lies of deception, hoping to cause the fall of the man as he had the angels. Sadly, one third of the angels of heaven had fallen with Lucifer to serve him.

 The Son of light would have no part with the devil, any more than the Father would, and He commanded His partner of man to not eat of the tree in the Garden called the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Truth was to reign in their lives and He would accept only a pure and fruitful bride, which, by the seed of man, could bear sons for the Father to make up the house of God in preparation for the kingdom rule over the garden of the universe. Together, they would be the future gardeners, planters and garden designers of the kingdom of the universe, partnering with the Father, as sons of truth born in His image, with the Spirit of life in them.

And so the way to redemption began anew with the first man, Adam, falling away from the Lord in sin, as had Lucifer fallen away from the Father, and had lured the man away from his Lord in an antichrist spirit. The darkness did not comprehend the power of the Light, neither His grace nor His mercy to save that which was lost. Yet He could not allow any darkness of religious rebellion to co-exist eternally with Him or His Father, for They were One in truth.

The east side of the Garden was closed off to the tree of life, preventing fallen man from eating from it; he had become like Lucifer, who had been one of Them, the family of God. The Father, in His mercy, prevented Adam and Eve from eating of it and living forever in sin (see Genesis 3:22). The closure brought about the immediate establishment of the Way, which would ultimately allow all mankind to be redeemed by the Light, who would separate the evil waters again from man, which had come back over the broken wall of truth.

The Light would become a fleshly Son of a virginal woman who had none of the seed of man in her. He became both a Son of Man, called Jesus, and the Son of God, begotten of His Spirit, making the Virgin Mary the first woman to birth of the Spirit of life the only Son of Man and Son of God. He would be her Son who would take away hers and the sin of mankind by allowing His blood to be shed in man’s place for man’s sin. At the same time the water of life and the Spirit of life, would flow from His body for all who would believe on Him for redemption, confess their sin and invite the Spirit into their lives, to become new creations in the Spirit.

The Son of light, who had taken the Father’s judgment, though perfect in every way, had made it possible to wash away sin with a change of the spiritual water in man. He could be cleansed again by the truth, which was the substance of the flesh of the Son of light, which the first son of man, Adam, forsook when he accepted the lie that introduced the liberalism of religion, which would separate him from the Father.

The Lord God, by way of His own suffering and His love for man, offered a second opportunity for him to receive eternal life by way of a rebirth in the Spirit of life. He would have to desire both life and his Beloved, enough to marry Him spiritually because of his passion for the truth and a great distaste for the evil that would lead to death. He was a Son of truth, who loved the Father and would only offer His fruit to the Father as sons of truth and light. There would never again be lies of religion in the coming kingdom on earth, if it were to be as it is in heaven.

The Way back ran through one natural nation of the world called Israel, ruled by God and not by Satan, while the rest of mankind was ruled by the devil in his religious, empire-building states. The father of the nation was Abraham and his sons of inheritance would travel the same crossover blessing route as that of Lucifer and Jesus, with the blessing of fruitfulness within the inheritance going from first son to second son. The first would fall away while the second would receive the inheritance.

So, it went from Abraham to Isaac and from Isaac to Jacob, to whom the name of the house of God would be given as the inheritance. Yet, for even his sons, the crossover would have to take place yet again going from a natural nation to the spiritual nation, which would consist of adopted sons of the God of truth, reborn of the Spirit of life. To Jacob was shown the manner in which this would happen.

In a dream, he was shown a ladder stretching between heaven and earth – a ladder upon which the angels ascended and descended as the agents of God between Him and man, spanning the breach between them. That ladder was actually a symbol of the Son of God and Son of Man, born to save His blessed creation of mankind. Jesus, the truth made flesh, told His future disciple Nathanael, that He, in fact, was that ladder shown to Jacob, the father of the nations, upon whom were seen the angels of God ascending and descending between heaven and earth (see John 1:51).

He is the way, the truth and the life. He is the door to heaven and the light. He is the bread of life and the living water. He is the Good Shepherd who will shepherd His sheep into the sheepfold. He will set the captives free from the bondage of death, free from the darkness of the corrupt universe, and will make His own people, His bride of eternity. She will be fruitful and share in the lighting of the entire universe with Him as the house of spiritual Israel and overcomer of the lure and lies of religion, which always suck man back into the black hole. But she will shine like the stars of heaven.

God said the heavens declare it, and the scientists can see it. Why do they listen to the lies of religious secularism? Perhaps, the answer lies in the natural with the resurrection seen only through spiritual eyesight and not by the doubting humanists. Mary Magdalene was there and she saw the risen Lord before He had ascended to His Father to receive back His glory, which He had given up to become man. And who was He whom she thought she saw? Through spiritual eyes, with spiritual vision given in the spirit of prophecy, she saw the Chief Gardener of the Universe of the future for those who believe on Jesus for salvation (see John 20:15).

And so it all begins with Jerusalem, the city at the very heart of Satan’s plan for a One World Order, whereby he must take over Israel and the throne of David, in order to set up his own throne and be worshiped like the Most High God. He will have only one hour before that titanic-like ship, which is tilting right now at the door of Rome, symbolic of the last and final empire of Satan’s Babylonian Religious System, actually falls away from the rock to disintegrate into the sea. There will be nothing left of it worth saving. Of course, all want their friends and relatives saved, even their bodies, for there is no return from that dark hole at the bottom of the sea, which the Lord God separated from His Garden at Creation.

The Lord had Jeremiah prophesy into the return of Israel to Jerusalem at the end of 70 years, with Cyrus of Persia declaring it (see Daniel, chapters 9, 10, 11, 12 and the 70-week vision). The wall of truth will go up again, with the Pishon River encompassing the entire land. Jerusalem will blossom like the Garden of Eden and the Chief Gardener will be enthroned as Ruler over His Father’s kingdom about to fill the universe with a garden of beauty such as has never been seen before.

And so it is that the history of the kings of Israel draws to a close to usher in the kings of the Babylonian system of empires. They, in turn, will give way to the King of kings and Lord of lords when all knees bow before Him, and submit to the will of the Lord God of the universe.

King Cyrus of the Persian Empire had his spirit stirred by God to prepare the way for the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem and later, the wall surrounding it. Jesus will rule over His kingdom on His throne seated in the New Jerusalem, which comes down from above on the dawn of the eighth millennium, after the seventh is completed and over.

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying,

Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is there among you of all His people? May the Lord his God be with him, and let him go up (2 Chronicles 36:22-23)!
