The Gardener

The Gardener…

When sin entered the world on the day of man’s fall, God took man out of a garden of life. On the day when sin was put to death, the opposite happened: man took God down from the cross and into a garden of death – the garden tomb.

In the Song of Solomon, the bride says of the Bridegroom, “Awake, oh north wind, and come wind of south, and blow upon my garden that the spices may flow out.” So man brought God into a garden of death, and there laid upon him spices, which come from a garden.

So also in the Song of Solomon, the bride says, “Let my Beloved come into His garden.” The tomb of God is a garden tomb – meaning, it isn’t merely a tomb, the place of endings – it’s a garden, the place of beginnings and life.

For all life in God now comes out of that tomb. So don’t be afraid of entering Jesus’s tomb, and letting the old die. For it’s not just a tomb – it’s a garden tomb, and those who enter it will find true life.

I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh with my spice. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk. Friends Eat, friends, and drink; drink your fill of love.
Song of Solomon 5:1

Let the past go, die to self, and be raised to life in the work of Jesus.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
