The tree of life is the fruit bearing life of the mystery of invisible Spirit God making Himself visible in created natural reality.
The contrasting tree of knowledge of good and evil is the fruitless death of man becoming his own god. As man goes so goes the world.
The current world is awakening from the death grip hold of man lifting himself as god. We are awakening to the reality of Almighty God abiding in and with us.
If you have heard the voice of Spirit God in the previous articles and videos “Hidden Mysteries of Life – Parts 1 & 2,” you should be aware that the greatest mystery of all is the LOVE of God in Christ Jesus abiding within us.
The next greatest mysteries are HOPE and FAITH.
FAITH is the substance of things HOPED for. Faith makes hope into substance. And it is not possible to please God without Faith. (Hebrews 11:1-6).
FAITH works by LOVE and is birthed from HOPE which comes by LOVE, the love of God in us.
“And now abide FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.” 1 Corinthians 13:13.
Biblical hope is a positive earnest expectation that comes from knowing (experiencing) the love of God.
Biblical hope is far beyond the modern connotations of hope as a sort of wishful maybe someday mindset.
Hope (positive earnest expectation) is alive in us because God loves us passionately and has spoken promises to us, and we know that He has the power to bring to pass that which He has spoken.
Faith is the work of LOVE. Faith works by love, (Galatians 5:6)/
The pure holy love of God flowing in and through us in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit is the flow of the substance of God’s power and wisdom to be and to do the will of God, to rule and reign on earth.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,” Hebrews 11:1.
Our positive earnest expectation (hope) is that the world is being changed, transformed into “as it is in heaven” here on earth by love through faith.
Our faith is the firm belief that we now have that which God has said. In the Spirit, by grace through faith, we have the substance of that which is not yet seen with natural eyes.
Grace is the gift of empowerment of God in us to possess the substance of that which God has said.
Faith is the substance of the power and wisdom (grace) of God to transform, redeem, and restore our lives and the world around us to the glory of God into the Garden of God’s love and provision.
THE PRODUCTION OF FAITH
The redeemed heart of man is God’s production center on earth. The plans and works of heaven are manifested on earth in the womb of the heart of mankind.
The right of dominion given to man bears the responsibility of governing the world.
That which man believes in his heart and speaks with his mouth instructs creation to be reformed toward becoming that which was said and truly believed, (Mark 11:22-24).
All creation in or on or around Planet Earth responds to that which man believes in his heart and speaks forth with his voice of words and actions.
The world is today what man believed and spoke yesterday. The world tomorrow will be what man believes and speaks today.
There is a natural supernatural gestation process of that which is planted in the heart of man growing into the natural world.
The creative spoken word of God comes into the heart of man by the Spirit of God in the substance of visions and dreams of pictures with dimensions, shapes, color, and sensitive feelings of Spirit reality.
The Spirit imaging hologram screen within the heart of man receives the multidimensional image from Spirit God.
The supernatural process of manifesting the vision into natural dimensional reality is the marvelous work of creation through mankind into the world by faith.
Man must HEAR and SEE the WORD (seed, vision) and receive (believe) it by FAITH into the HEART (womb, production center) of a living breathing fully redeemed human being.
A word from God is a living seed that grows into the form of the design and pattern of the will and plan of God.
The process of change in the world begins with receiving a word (seed, vision) from God by the Spirit.
The seed sprouts and is nurtured in the womb of the heart when it connects with faith (belief) in the heart of a person. The now living vision will rapidly grow in the heart of the person who received it.
The birthing of the vision into the world begins as we begin to speak the vision into the world.
Drawings and writings of the vision may be called for to share the vision with other people who receive it by faith into their hearts.
As a group of people together receive the vision or idea from God into their own hearts, more faith is added that strengthens and brings forward the work to be done.
Different people with differing gifts and callings will see a portion of the vision that pertains to their God-given abilities in greater, more specific detail. The vision grows as the many aspects begin to take shape in the hearts of the people.
As the vision from God is shared into the world, things begin happening in the unseen supernatural world of the Spirit.
Perhaps all over the world whatever is going to be required to build or complete the vision begins to come into being and take shape to be provided to fill a role in the vision when needed.
Everything of God that man has done or built on earth has come through this process. Every building, city, business, ministry or whatever was first an idea, a thought or vision in some human being’s heart.
Ungodly Creation from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil
The natural man working from the tree of knowledge of good and evil receives words, visions, or ideas from another source other than God.
The act of building into the world from seeds that are not from God is known as sorcery, witchcraft, science of the mind, positive thinking, mind-power, hypnosis, and other schemes that use the God given tools for evil apart from God.
These works always produce death in the end and will be burned or dissolved as the real kingdom of God comes forth on earth.
Only that which is from God is of the tree of life and always leads to true lasting prosperity, peace, and goodwill in the spirit, soul, and body of man and on earth.
The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

COME TO THE GARDEN
Today, in this very hour of time and eternity, a marvelous and mysterious reality of the substance of the fruit of the tree of abundant life of righteousness, peace, and joy is flowing by the Spirit into the hearts and lives of those who are in love with God.
The fruit of the Spirit from the tree of life in the midst of the Garden of God in our hearts is producing the beauty of the manifested love of God in His people that is flowing out to change the world around us.
The Kingdom of God is manifesting in the Garden of His love by faith, overcoming all things, and bringing all things under the canopy of the brightness of the GLORY of His love.
God is returning His beautifully created world to its original created state as the Garden of Eden.
However, the Garden must FIRST be in the hearts of God’s people, those who are in love with Him. Being in love is beyond being loved or having love.
In the natural you may have intense love for another person. However, until that person loves you back you are not in love.
Being in love is the explosion of all-consuming and totally fulfilling love of both persons loving each other.
Only then can the full fruit of the “being in love” relationship come forth. God loves every person, but only when we love Him back are we in love with Him.
And only then can we fully experience the full reality of the Garden of love within us.
The Mystery of the Kingdom within Us
Another biblical word for the Garden is the New Jerusalem, the spiritual ruling city of the kingdom of God coming down from heaven to rule on earth.
The city of God abiding in and with mankind is the ruling city of the Kingdom of God on earth.
The Bride city out of which the order and peace of the Kingdom of God flows out to fill the entire earth with the perfect order of God as it was designed to be in the Garden of Eden: God with man bringing forth the will of God on earth as it is in heaven.
God is forming His Garden within you and me and many who are truly falling in love with God.
We can now walk with Him and talk with Him in the Spirit Garden within our hearts. J ust as Adam and Eve did in the Garden of Eden before the fall.
Come now into the inner Garden and walk in love with God in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
“I Come to the Garden Alone”
In the past neophyte age of religious church, we sang beautiful hymns given by God to men who probably did not grasp the fullness of the reality of that which they wrote. C. Austin Miles wrote over three hundred of those hymns.
His most famous “In the Garden” sometimes called “I Come to the Garden Alone” was written in 1912. I well remember singing this many times in church and thinking it was a sentimental natural picture of prayer early in the morning in a rose garden.
Today we can experience the reality of the inner Spirit “Garden of Eden” life in love with our Lord and God. Here are links to a choir singing this hymn.
Be made whole in His love,
