“A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. The name of the first is Pishon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Hav′ilah, where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. The name of the second river is Gihon; it is the one which flows around the whole land of Cush. And the name of the third river is Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.” Genesis 2:10-14
Let’s take a deeper look, the Hebrew word עדן, Eden, means “delight and pleasure,” and it symbolizes the ultimate source of all delight and pleasures of God.
His delights flow into our world by way of His “rivers” or waters flowing from His Garden of Eden to become known as being baptized in the Holy Spirit.
“And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’” John 1:33
I can’t tell you how many rivers The Father has led me to in His Scripture to reveal this layer of understanding.
We utilizing His Garden by reading His Word! The Word is His Garden.
His Spirit flows from His Word Garden to the rivers flowing [revealing] with His Profound Treasures of His ultimate truth for our lives.
His Spirit administers these flowing waters giving access to His Seven (7) attributes of His Spirit which can be grouped into four (4) ministries of His Church.
As a believer these four (4) rivers split into four (4) heads that each one of us must travel within our hearts! 💜
“They search the sources of the rivers and bring hidden things to light.” Job 28:11
Let’s not forgot we are told in Genesis, God formed a man from the dust of the ground, He breathed life into his nostrils and then planted man in the garden in the East.
“Then The LORD God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden to cultivate and keep it.” Genesis 2:15
The place God originally intended for us to live is captured by the deceit of the enemy. God knew Adam’s and Eve’s choices would prevent them from living as He intended, so as always He had a plan to restore us to the place of His Presence.
Jesus is the Door to this place. . . Through His death on the cross, He bought the way for us to be made whole — the way to shalom, where nothing is missing, nothing is broken: the place where we live in friendship with Him.
It’s perfectly designed by God!
The is the place God originally intended for us to live is now within one’s mind.
If we come drink of these rivers that flow out of Christ, then He manifests within us melting away our waxed hearts.
Some Believers sit here never entering the these flowing rivers, but others who are thirsty for more find these hidden water ways very early in their lives.
For those unsure, but want to enter these waters, The Father has Commissioned a guided River Tour.
In fact, The LORD said, “A little fountain became a river, and there was light and the sun, and much water: the River is Esther, whom the king married and made queen.”
Then The LORD spoke, “A burning wind is blowing in from the desert and its not a gentle breeze, useful for winnowing grain. [Separating the wheat from the chaff.]
The enemy comes from a distant land surrounding you like a watchman around a field. I AM raising a battle cry against Mine still working out the things they have rebelled against Me. [Things not forgiven within your hearts.]
Your actions of bitterness have brought this battle [punishment] upon you.
Being clever enough to do wrong, but you have no idea how to do right!
Because your fertile land has become a wilderness, laying in ruins crushed and destroyed, because My Decrees are buried within My People. [Word of God is unknown to this group]
Come Back to your first love,” says The LORD.
“Cry out to Me… your Sovereign Holy God.
For I AM waiting, searching High and Low throughout your city [heart] for one honest person.
I sent wars of turmoil and plagues of destruction.
Yet My People walk around in a stupor —
How can I pardon one who refuses to turn back to Me?
I fed them until they were full and they thanked me by looking to the world for answers, instead of coming to Me.
I ask you, should I avenge Myself against a stubborn nation?
I AM looking down the rows of My Vineyard within My Garden, I see scattered leave and destroyed unwatered grapevines. I see strips of branches from the Vines for these do not belong to Me.
Come, My Beloved take a guided tour.
I Love you all My Children,
Your Father, King of kings.”
Our spirit flows from us through the waters and back to the Garden of Eden. It becomes our spiritual conduit! Our branches connected to His Vine become nourished.
The Pison River is the first among the named that stem from the division of the river found in The Garden.
The word Pison פִּישׁוֹן means increase. Once you enter this river you feel a divine increase in your Spirit, a refreshment or anointing.
This first rivers offers permission to enter His presence. Within an instant as we enter His Water flows the whole land of our heart!
His Word tells us of the encompassed abundance found in the land of Pison River: “…the gold of the land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there” (Genesis 2:12).
Meaning, we gain access to His Kingdom to gather gold, in the colors of bdellium [yellow] and onyx [red]. These precious stones are like gold, but yellow and red in color.
I will admit it has taken me years to wash my garments in order to be commissioned, but there has become a lack of those willing to look foolish for God.
He is opening new rivers [anointing] for those not in agreement with the kings of our world knowing these waters scorn and dirty one’s spiritual garment.
“Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned.” Song of Songs 8:7
Let’s begin the River Tour by mediating on Psalm 139 For encouragement.
“You have searched me, Lord and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand — when I awake, I am still with you.
If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty!
They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name.
Do I not hate those who hate you, Lord, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you?
I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.
Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:1-24
The Father is watching for sold-out Christ lovers, who do not mind looking like FOOLS in this world to follow Him!
Is this you?
If you feel a quickening, seek The Father in your secret place to enter His Garden. There is much work to be done.
Blessings over your Garden today!
