Restoration of the Garden of Eden?
The system of the world seems to be trying to restore the planet to the Spring and Summer of the Garden of Eden. In the process, they leave out the Living God and the Message of the Cross is not welcomed there. They rely on a modern god of this technological era to be their data base of knowledge to eternally sustain their paradise. But, the beauty of their garden is like the beauty of Fall leaves ready to wither away, and their garden has no water of life flowing from the Living God. Destruction follows those who reject the Kingdom of God because they embrace their kingdom on Earth; destruction follows those who reject the Message of the Cross of Christ; and destruction follows those who reject the cleansing work of the Holy Ghost. Satan’s deception, which is carried by the anti-Christ, is to establish Heaven on Earth by stealing, killing, and destroying God’s plan of redemption. Those attempting to restore the Garden of Eden on Earth, according to the modern god of this technological age, as well as those benefiting from the godless rewards, will burn together in Hell. Howbeit, God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
While the modern god of this technological age goes about ushering in their man-made Garden of Eden, there are many who are excluded from entry into that worldly paradise. The Children of God will definitely be excluded because the Message of the Cross is not welcomed there. The Righteousness and Truth of the Holy Ghost is despised. The Children born from the Cross of Christ will be tossed into a turbulent world filled with hostility, violence, murder, and very much conflict. The turbulence in the world comes from those outside the man-made paradise who indulge in all the enticements, vices, immorality, addictions, and “rewards” tolerated by those operating through the modern god of the technological age. It is of the system of the anti-Christ. By this, we know Jesus Christ is coming soon! They will be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. Those who reject the Cross of Christ, outside the worldly garden of paradise, will also suffer destruction the same as those within the worldly garden of paradise. The destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners will be together, and they that forsake the Lord will be consumed. However, those born from the Cross of Christ are loved by God, and He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The everlasting Life found in Christ Jesus is the genuine Garden of Eden, which is the New Jerusalem.
There is only one way to secure a place in the Kingdom of God, and that is to accept what Christ has done for us on the Cross. By the remission of sin we are set apart from the ways of the world. By the remission of sin, we automatically would not be part of a system that rejects the Living God, the Message of the Cross, and the Holy Ghost. The Garden of Eden that God has prepared for us is not from the ingenuity of mankind, technology, information, or any other man-made god. The New Jerusalem is the Garden of Eden that God has for us, and it comes down from Heaven as a home for all those whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of life. God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. During the time when the modern god attempts to establish the garden of paradise on Earth, there will be tribulation for God’s Children who live in God’s Truth. The Holy Ghost will be there to comfort us until the coming of Jesus, and Jesus is coming soon!
“And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that hath no water. And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.”
“God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Isaiah 1:28-31 King James Version (KJV)
No one is perfect, which is to say that we are all flawed by sin. God honors that humble attitude. We all know someone whose life has been changed because of what Christ did on the Cross to remit sin. I am one. God honors that belief. Confessing that we are flawed with sin, and believing in the work of Jesus Christ on the Cross will reconcile us to God. That simple! Believe in the heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.
