Heard, "EDEN is restored in you!”

By Deborah Waldron Fry



 In a vision, I saw beautiful peaceful Garden with a forest of Trees. It was so cool and pleasant and it seemed to be evening. And a River was flowing there from the Throne of Grace that came from the Midst of the King's Palace, His dwelling Place, His Temple. And I was reminded how in the Garden of Eden God walked with Adam in the cool of the day. 



The late Dr. Myles Munroe said, "Hebrew words are written with strokes. EDEN is a Hebrew word with FIVE "strokes": (Five is the number of GRACE) "1. Spot 2. Presence 3. Pleasant moment 4. Open Door and 5. Delightful Place." 



"God took the man and put him in a Divine Spot called Eden, for a moment, where the presence of God was an open door to heaven. God took a piece of Heaven and put it on earth and there He put man in this Spot. The Perfect Presence of God. Complete and perfect communion. Eden was not a physical place but an ENVIRONMENT of God's Presence that included a Garden with Divine Waters flowing from Him. Where ever the man went, the Spot moved. “



So Eden is not an earthly place but a piece of Heaven of earth where God dwells. The Hebrew term for ‘Heaven’ or ‘Paradise’ is in fact ‘Gan Eden’ {גןעדן} – meaning the Garden of Eden. Eden means " pleasure and delight." There was only one tree which Adam could not eat from. It was the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. For all he knew was GOOD. But the choice was his to eat the fruit or not. God gave him a choice. We always have a choice.


Many say that the fruit from the tree was an APPLE. The reason why it could be the apple is based on the Latin translation, where the Latin word for evil ‘malum’ (appears as ‘mali’ in the Vulgate) is almost the same as the Latin word for an APPLE (‘mālum’ in Latin).



And THEN the Lord reminded me of  two places in the Book of the Song of Solomon where APPLES are mentioned.Oh WOW! It makes sense now! 



SOS 2:3 "As the APPLE TREE among the trees of the wood, So is my Beloved among the sons. I sat down under His shadow with great delight, And His fruit was sweet to my taste. 4 He brought me to the banqueting-house, And His banner over me was love. 5 Stay ye me with raisins, refresh me with APPLES; For I am sick from love. 6 His left hand is under my head, And his right hand doth embrace me." 



AND this: Song of Solomon 8:5 "Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning on her Beloved? I roused you under the APPLE tree; there your mother conceived you; there she travailed and brought you forth." 



And apples are also compared with the Pomegranate. Song of Solomon 4:3 “Thy temples are like a piece of pomegranate within thy locks.” 



The word raqqa, which has been translated “temples” refers to the “upper cheeks” or “sides of the face,” or the APPLES of your cheek.  The metaphor of cheeks like a pomegranate is the ancient version of “Cheeks as rosy as an APPLE,” since ripe pomegranates were a rich crimson color, the same color as the Blood of Christ! 



Oh Beloved! Do you see that Jesus came to restore Eden for us? Not a Place on earth but the Perfect Place of His Presence. We are in Him and He in us! What is spoken of here is “Shalom”—complete and utter wholeness. Eden is a Spiritual Place of Delight and Pleasure where you can walk in the cool of the day and commune with your God! He took the evil apple that brought sin into the Garden and now He feeds us Heavenly Apples. We have come to the King's Banqueting House and His Banner over us is Love! HE is the Tree of Life. The Garden is restored! It is His sweet Presence where you abide and are healed and restored! 



"Come, My Beloved. Let us walk together. I have restored Eden for you. It is a Place of Delight and Pleasure, a Place of My Perfect Presence where all the cares of the world shall be washed away by the River flowing from My Throne of Grace. It is the King's Garden and the Gate is always open. For you are in Me and I in you. It is where you were always meant to be from the foundations of the earth.



"No longer do you need to hide from Me, Dear One. The Son of God became sin who knew no sin, that you were made the Righteousness of God in Christ. We walk together in perfect harmony. You are My Beloved, and I am yours. My Garden Gate is always open to you. Come, sit under My Shadow with Great Delight and eat the Pleasant Fruit. I will sustain you and nourish you as it was always meant to be. 



"Feast on the abundance of My House and drink from the River of My delights. I am the Bread of Life and the New Wine. In My Presence is fullness of joy and at My Right Hand are pleasures forever more. My Shalom Peace shall reign in your life as we walk and commune in the Cool of the Day.



"Yes, EDEN has been restored, My Child. Hear your Beloved calling,"Arise, My Darling. Come away with Me, My Beautiful One. For now the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers have appeared in the countryside; the season of singing has come, and the cooing of turtledoves is heard in your land."

Psalm 68:11 You make known to me the path of life; in Your Presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.



Genesis 2:15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden... NIV

God’s originally designed atmosphere for man to flourish was Eden – The Garden of Eden.



"Taken together, all these provisions suggest that Eden is the earthly dwelling of the Heavenly Sovereign. The King not only constructed this realm (Genesis 1); He provides everything to sustain Life in His realm. Eden is therefore the palace of the great King—not a physical building made of stones, but the dwelling-place of the Sovereign who oversees and takes care of His earthly realm.  1 Corinthians 3:16 "Don’t you know that you yourself?”

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
