I’ve been up since 3.00 a.m. but for one reason or another, I was unable to get up from the bed.
My heart has been sober before the Lord in silent meditation, listening to a cool worship song. I dozed off again, but was conscious of my environment. I saw everyone who walked into the room.
I was taken to a Garden. I have never seen a Garden like this in my life and I know there is not such a Garden in all the world. The beautiful thing about this Garden were not the plants, no, no, no…. The Garden was alive; the plants seem to be breathing. There was life in it! It seemed as though all plants were interacting with LIFE.
I knew this was the Garden of Eden, but I heard it was called THE GARDEN OF GOD. Then a picture of Revelation 21 was shown me of a Garden. I could only liken it to that described in the chapter quoted.
The PRESENCE of God was everywhere, but the MANIFEST PRESENCE saturated the Garden. Please note that, I said THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD AND NOT THE OMNIPRESENCE OF GOD.
Then I saw man living in the MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD, because he was in the Garden of Eden…. The Garden of God.
While I was seeing this, my heart began to wonder why I was being shown this vision. Then Words began to well up in me.. “THE NEW MAN IN CHRIST (CHURCH) IS CALLED TO LIVE IN THE RICHNESS OF THE FULLNESS OF THE MANIFEST PRESENCE AS ADAM WAS MADE TO LIVE….”
In that place – GARDEN OF THE LORD, Adam fellowshipped with MYSTERIES and from that realm had a command over all the works of God’s hands. It was from that realm that he named every animal and superimposed the name on them and the Bible wrote “AND WHATEVER HE CALLED THEM, THAT WAS THEIR NAME”..
God is calling His new “ADAM” back to where He belongs.. The place of the MANIFEST PRESENCE.
We MUST STEP UP from our Christian religious rituals into the place of FELLOWSHIPPING WITH MYSTERIES to an enviable position where even angels begins to seek being in our gatherings to be taught by us the manifold wisdom of God which is hidden IN CHRIST! (Ephesians 3:8-10).
This is a clarion call for all believers to CRAVE FOR SOMETHING HIGHER THAN THE MUNDANE – THE MANIFEST PRESENCE OF GOD!
Purpose of the Mystery
“To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places” Ephesians 3:8-10.
