Eden / Paradise

 

And Yahweh Elohim (God) planted a garden eastward in Eden; . . . and out of the ground Yahweh Elohim caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden . . . -- Gen 2:8-9 Eden and Paradise are translations of the same original word: The Hebrew Gan Edan (Garden of Eden) of Genesis is translated into the Greek Septuagint as Paradisos, from whence we get Paradise.

 

"To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of God." --   Rev 2:7 

(A comparison of Revelation 2 & 22 with Genesis 2 will show many of the same elements.)

Evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for Yahweh shall inherit the earth . . . The meek shall inherit the earth, and delight themselves in abundant prosperity and peace . . . The righteous shall inherit the earth, and dwell therein forever! --  Psalm 37:9, 11, 29 God destroyed the earth once by water (in Noah's day), and will again destroy the earth -- but with fire. The term New Earth is better translated Renewed Earth: as it was once renewed by water, it will be renewed by fire.

 

Yeshua said, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." -- Matthew 5:5
"For just as the renewed heavens and renewed earth which I will create will endure before Me," declares Yahweh, "so your offspring and your name will endure. And it shall be from New Moon to New Moon, and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all mankind will come to bow down before Me," says Yahweh. -- Isaiah 66:22-23 Yeshua said, "I go to prepare a place for you." Then John said, "I saw renewed heavens and a renewed earth . . . And I saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down out of the heavens from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

 

And I saw a renewed heavens and a renewed earth; for the first heavens and the first earth had disappeared, and there was no longer any sea. And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down out of the heavens from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His peoples, and God Himself shall dwell among them." -- Rev 21:1-3
"I am Yahweh . . . I will separte you . . . I will deliver you . . . I will redeem you with an outstretched arm . . . I will take you for My people and I will be your God" -- Exodus 6:6-7 Paradise, our eternal home on the renewed earth, will be Eden of old, restored to its perfection. There Yeshua -- Emmanuel (God with us) -- will dwell with us, fulfilling the old and renewed Covenant.
"Behold, the days are coming," declares Yahweh, "when I will make a renewed covenant with with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah . . . I will be their God, and they shall be My people . . . they shall all know me . . . -- Jeremiah 31:31-34


Glowing with God's Glory in Eden

 

"When all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone!" -- Exodus 34:30 Moses glowed after being with God on Mt.Sinai.

 

"Moses put a veil over his face . . . (when the glory was) . . . passing away." -- 2 Corinthians 3:7-13
"(Yeshua) was transfigured before them, and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as light." -- Matthew 17:2 Yeshua and angels at times appeared clothed in light.

 

"The angel of the Lord descended from heaven . . . his countenance was like light, and his raiment shining as snow." -- Matthew 28:2
"He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in raiment of light." --Revelation 3:5 A  multitude from all nations will stand before God clothed in robes of light.

 

"A great multitude . . . of all nations . . . stood before the Lamb, clothed in robes of light." -- Revelation 7:9
"They were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." -- Genesis 2:25

"Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden." -- Genesis 3:8

 

 

 

When Adam and Eve, through sin, lost their glow, they perceived their shame as nakedness; they covered themselves with leaves to hide amongst the trees. When we reach renewed Eden, we will be clothed in light as Adam and Eve originally were, and we will not be ashamed.

This was understood by reformers such as John P.Reese in the thirteenth verse of Amazing Grace: "When we've been there ten thousand years, bright--shining as the sun..." and W.O.Cushing in When He Cometh: "They shall shine in their beauty, bright gems for His crown."

"I counsel you to buy of Me . . . raiment of light, that you may be clothed, and the shame of your nakedness not appear." -- Revelation 3:18
