The Death of Jesus (3/28)

Jesus – Garden Of Death…

It was a few days before Palm Sunday and Grandfather said let’s go sit down and discuss the Garden of Eden. To understand life and Christianity we need to start at the beginning.

According to Jewish mythology, in the Garden of Eden there is a tree of life or the “tree of souls” that blossoms and produces new souls, which fall into the Guf, the Treasury of Souls. The Angel Gabriel reaches into the treasury and takes out the first soul that comes into his hand. Then Laah, the Angel of Conception, watches over the embryo until it is born.

In the Book of Genesis, the tree of life is first described in chapter 2 verse 9 as being “in the midst of the Garden of Eden” with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 

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

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

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’s 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 dying to self. For it’s not just a tomb – it’s a garden tomb, and those who enter it will find true life.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Enter into the Garden Tomb. Lay down your old life, your old identity, your ego and bury it – Then walk in the newness of life.

Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp.   Psalm 149:3

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
