Today I want to talk to you about being back in the Garden of Eden again. 1 Corinthians 15:45 (NKJV) says, “And so it is written, ‘The first man Adam became a living being.’” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. And who is this last Adam? It is Christ. There is to come no Adam after Him, but He is the Omega, breathing the final word in man’s relationship to God. As He spoke, it is finished. And so the last Adam claims the prize that the first Adam could not keep, bringing restoration to all that man fell from, and we who have believed have become the planting of the Lord, and the only planting God has ever made is the one in the garden He plants, as it states in Genesis 2 that “the Lord planted a garden in Eden.”
So here we are, back in the garden again. And here is the problem, most don’t understand the garden, the restoration, and so they work by the sweat of their brow, and labor in great pain in birthing anything new, be it dreams or success or business or child, and the earth rules man and gives only thorn and thistle to children of the King, children of God. And so today I bring understanding that you have been restored to the garden, and you are not to be removed from it but are planted to remain, and in this way God has done the planting, and you are doing the tending.
