The Garden Of God Or The Garden Of Eden?
In Genesis we are told about the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden which was beautiful and perfect. However, the Garden of Eden did not last forever because of the serpent, who tempted Eve to eat the fruit of the Tree of knowledge. After Eve ate of the tree of knowledge she gave some to Adam, who also ate of the tree of knowledge. Sadly after that, they both became ashamed, because their eyes opened and they knew what was given to them from the tree of knowledge.
Later, Jehovah came to them and they told Him they had eaten fruit from the tree of knowledge. He gave them cloth to wear, but sadly made them leave the Garden of Eden. They were never allowed to come back into the Garden of Eden again. But, the Garden of Eden is not the only Garden the bible teaches us about. There is another Garden. This one is called The Garden of God.
Ezekiel 31:2-9 Tells us about the beauty of the Garden of God. In which God Himself is speaking of the Garden of God. This is an amazing part of the bible because God is describing the Garden of God, as well as a tree that grew in it.
Ezekiel 31:4 Waters were what made it get big, the watery deep caused it to grow high, with it's streams, it was growing all around it's planting place; and it's channels it sent forth to all the other trees of the field. 5: and it's boughs kept multiplying and it's branches kept getting longer because of much water in it's watercourse. 8: Other cedars were no match for it in the Garden of God resembled it, in it's prettiness. 9: Pretty is the way that I made it in the abundance of it's foliage, and all the trees in the Garden of Eden were envying it.
This is very interesting. Is there a Garden of God and a Garden of Eden? The tree in the Garden of God is also confusing, because the tree in the Garden of Eden we envious of it. So, what is so important about the tree in the garden of God?
Most people call the place the Garden of Eden. The garden is a beautiful, wonderful garden that God gave to Adam and Eve. This garden was filled with lovely plants and animals, more then anyone can even imagine, but once again it is was only a garden. Eden is written about several times in the bible.
Isaiah 37:12 Have the gods of nations delivered them, the nations of my predecessors destroyed, Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the people of Eden, who were in Telassar. Although the location of Telassar is not known, the people from Eden lived there.
In Genesis 2:8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there He put the man He had created from the dirt of the ground. The mans name was Adam, and then God created a wife for Adam, as you already know, her name was Eve.
So, if the garden in Eden was in the east part of Eden, what was in the other parts of Eden? Genesis 2:19 tells us there are fields in Eden, birds, animals and every living creature. And of course Adam and Eve.
We know that Adam and Eve did not stay in the garden forever. After eating from the tree of knowledge,Adam and Eve were only cast out of the garden of the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve were never allowed to come back into the Garden of Eden Genesis 3:22. God sent Cherubim and a Flaming sword to guard the garden of Eden. After leaving the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve went East of the Garden of Eden. That is where they started their lives.
But what about the Garden of God? Is there any way to find the Garden of God? Is it hidden from us, or guarded from us? Will we ever have a chance to find the Garden of God? Even if we do find the Garden of God, will we ever be allowed to enter it?
