I heard, “You dwell in the King’s Garden.”
And I saw the Bride of Christ walking with Jesus, reveling in the smells, sights, sounds, and tastes of this marvelous place as the Winds of the Spirit were gently blowing all around them.
“Beloved. At one time, man and woman were expelled from a garden. This was never My Plan for you, Dear One.
Everything changed through the Redemption at the Cross. The Garden of Agony of the Son of God has become for you a Garden of Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit.
You dwell in the King’s Garden now, surrounded by My Hedges of Protection, sheltered by My walled Enclosure where you are safe. I have come to My Garden, My Bride.
Here, My Gentle Winds blow, the spices flow out, the Fragrance of Christ fills your senses, My sweet honey and honeycomb are on your tongue.
Here you drink freely of Milk and Wine of the Spirit. As it was in the beginning, so shall the end be also, Beloved.
Enjoy all My Fruits, My Child, for they are pleasant and good. Living Waters flow freely. Come Weary One. Indeed, I shall give you rest and comfort you.
You have come to My Secret Garden through the Blood of the Lamb and by My Spirit. And your wilderness I will make like Eden, and your desert like the GARDEN of the LORD; Joy and gladness are found here, thanksgiving and sound of a melody.
Rejoice, My Child. Your residence is in My Kingdom Garden. Eat, O Friends, and drink; drink freely, O My Beloved.”
