“Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.”
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
This is the 52nd lecture on Genesis.
Adam lived in the Garden of Eden giving birth to his descendants for countless years.
And he ruled over the Garden of Eden and the earth with God-given authority, wisdom and power.
Adam had to take an aircraft to come the earth.
It was because there is an area where the time flow stops between the 2nd and the 1st heavens.
This area is the buffer zone between the 2nd and the 1st heaven.
Both heavens have different time flows, but as Adam passed through this buffer zone, he didn’t feel the difference.
Without this buffer zone, Adam, who had bones and skin, could have felt the difference of both heavens severely.
If you fly here from the other side of the earth, you will experience jet-lag (desynchronosis) for a while.
If there were no buffer zone between the 2 heavens, whenever Adam flew to and from the earth, he would feel the time difference directly.
But as he passed through an area where the time flow stopped, he could adapt himself well to the place he was flying.
Furthermore, he could fly to the earth instantly through the space of this corridor.
By the way, I explained before that the angels of the 3rd heaven travel instantly to the earth through this area where the time flow stops.
In fact, the time flow difference doesn’t matter to those who consist of only spirit without flesh such as angels, Satan, and the devil.
Therefore, the spirit-only being doesn’t actually need to pass through the area where the time flow stops.
Instead, they travel to the earth through designated spiritual passageways.
Just as there are routes for a ship to sail in the vast ocean and corridors for airplanes to fly in the sky, there are also passageways in the spiritual realm.
From time to time, the evil spirits and the spirits that belong to God confront each other in these passageways of the spiritual realm.
Then, it is the time for the spiritual warfare to break out.
In Daniel 10:13-14, Archangel Gabriel appeared before Daniel, and delivered the answer of God to him.
It reads, “But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision pertains to the days yet future.”
Here, “the prince of the kingdom of Persia” refers to the king of Persia in a physical sense, but also to the evil spirit in the spiritual sense.
This evil spirit was withstanding the Archangel Gabriel in a way of the spiritual realm.
As Daniel continued to pray by faith without changing and filled the proper measure according to justice, the evil spirit couldn’t stop the Archangel Gabriel any more.
Then, God sent the Archangel Michael to defeat the evil spirits.
Lucifer and evil spirits interfere with the works of God with the authority of the darkness during the period of human cultivation.
When the necessary measure to receive answer is filled according to justice, they cannot interfere any longer.
The same spiritual law still applies today.
If the passageways of the spiritual realm are wide open between you and God the Father, you can receive answers no matter what you ask for.
If you satisfy the requirements to receive answers according to justice, the enemy devil and Satan cannot interfere with you.
I already explained about the seven conditions to receive answers to your prayer during the “Seven Spirits” sermon.
They are faith, joy, payer, thanksgiving, law-abidingness (keeping the Law, the Commandments), faithfulness, and love.
According to your measure of faith and prayer subject, if you fill the proper measure, the answer is coming through a corridor of the spiritual realm.
I hope that you can make the best use of this spiritual law and receive answers to whatever you ask.
Unlike angels that consist of only spirit, Adam, who was the living being, couldn’t fly, and thus he had to take an aircraft to come to the earth.
I said the aircraft was what is now known as a UFO, which are observed frequently today.
Especially this year, the number of UFO observations suddenly increased, and their appearance took on a different aspect from the past.
Let me introduce a report made by “ukopia.com” which is a news site located in the States.
“Unlike the past years, quite a number of UFO observations were reported throughout the whole globe, and it makes scientists nervous.
Only a few people observed UFO in the past, but it has changed recently.
UFO appeared before the eyes of hundreds or thousands of people, and it was impossible for the government to make up a story.
The biggest sensation so far this year was the UFO which appeared this past July 9 in China.
Due to this UFO, the Chinese government shut down the airport in the city, and prohibited all the airplanes from landing and taking-off, and the government is not providing a clear explanation about it.
A few hours before the airport was shut down, the citizens observed the gigantic luminous body, and they were terrified.”
This year alone, 3 reports about UFO observation have been made.
The UK is another country where the appearance of UFO is frequent.
Last October in a city of the UK, people observed a triangular UFO circling over a residential area.
This triangular UFO was also observed in the sky of Belgium in 1990.
At that time, fighter planes made a sortie due to this UFO’s strange shape.
Moreover, a British police officer observed 3 extraterrestrials in July, 2009.
According to the officer, they were all blonde wearing a white uniform and they were 6 feet tall or taller.
As the office approached them, they ran away at an incredibly fast speed.
Their look is quite similar to the look of the people in the Garden of Eden just as God told us.
Last September, UN officially appointed an “Alien-UFO Ambassador.”
This UFO Ambassador has to the first one to greet as an alien visits the earth.
Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, became the first UN official UFO Ambassador.
As you can see, the existence of UFO cannot be denied any more.
Since the people of the world cannot identify it, they call it UFO, but we do know.
It is the aircraft that the people in the Garden of Eden take to come to the earth.
By this aircraft, Adam made frequent travels to the earth.
Whenever Adam came to the earth, he found a beautiful spot and stayed there.
His favorite place was the Nile River area of today.
The Nile River has close relation with Gihon, which was the 2nd river among the 4 rivers that were created with the waters form Eden.
As long time went by, the God-made Gihon met with other tributaries and became the Nile River.
The size of the river became bigger and it became more beautiful.
This Nile River seemed very beautiful to the eyes of Adam.
Its beauty didn’t fall behind the look of the rivers in the Garden of Eden, and thus Adam was satisfied with it.
Adam liked to visit the Nile River area.
The Nile River area was like a summer home to Adam.
It was a place where Adam could stop and take a rest.
Now, some of you may have a question about this.
The Garden of Eden is a much better place than the earth, but why did Adam like the Nile River on this earth-
To help you understand it, let me give you an example.
Jeju Island of this country is one of the top-picks for foreign tourists.
The entire island was beautifully formed.
Now, what about the native residents of Jeju island-
Since they live in such a beautiful place, will they not feel like visiting other places-
Of course, the Halla Mountain of Jeju island is beautiful, but they also want to see Soerak and Gumgang Mountain.
They may visit a less beautiful place than Jeju Island, but they may find it quite beautiful.
Since they see and feel strange but unique scenes and culture, they may feel something new and fresh.
It was the same with Adam.
By that time, the earth was well maintained as God created, and thus it was much more beautiful than as it is now.
Adam could receive impression from the earth that was different from the Garden of Eden.
Especially, the big and strong Nile River fascinated Adam’s heart.
Besides, the earth was the physical motherland to Adam.
It is because God created Adam from the dust of the ground on Earth.
Since Adam knew this fact, Adam cherished the earth very much even though he lived in the Garden of Eden.
Some of you left your hometown where you were born and grew up long time ago.
For some reason, the hometown brings an easy feeling to you.
As you think of the hometown, you feel peaceful and happy.
You feel like the hometown will welcome you anytime you visit it.
To Adam, the earth was a place that had such impressions on him.
Therefore, Adam frequently visited the earth, and ruled over it and kept it with the God-given authority.
One day, Adam had a plan to construct a building on earth to symbolize his authority.
He wanted to construct a unique building which could show the earth his territory in his favorite place, the Nile River area.
However, his plan couldn’t be carried out immediately due to a major incident that took place in the Garden of Eden.
I will explain about the incident in the next lecture.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
Using the God-given authority and wisdom, Adam ruled and kept the Garden of Eden and the earth well.
Then, was it Adam alone who managed and ruled over such a vast area-
Even a leader of a small group has so many things to take care of.
That’s why there are different departments that help the leader, and there are workers in the departments.
It was not just Adam alone who was busy.
God gave special beings that were suitable for Adam’s authority to help Adam.
They were the cherubim.
I already gave you a detailed explanation about the cherub in Revelation Lecture 15, and so I will briefly explain them.
The spiritual beings that God govern can be categorized into two; angels and cherubim.
Angels have almost the same appearance of men, but they have wings.
Unlike angels, cherubim have the look of animals, and they are varied in form.
Some cherubim have a face of a man, and a body of an animal.
Just as there are many different kinds of animals on the land, there are many different cherubim.
It shows how many various creations God the Father can create.
It also shows how infinite His power of creation can be.
In other words, the existence of cherubim shows that God the Father’s power and divinity is so great and vast.
Even though both angels and cherubim are all governed by God, their roles are different.
Angels minister to God and they also sing praises and dance.
They also serve the saved children of God, and they maintain the dwelling places of Heaven.
On the other hand, cherubim are mainly in charge of “escorting and guarding.”
There are ranks and orders in the world of cherubim, and cherubim in higher ranks escort God the Trinity.
The 4 Living Creatures fall into this group.
Other cherubim that are in lower ranks usually in charge of “guarding.”
There are records in the Bible about the cherubim that guard the Garden of Eden.
Genesis 3:24 says, “So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.”
After Adam sinned, God the Father drove them out of the Garden of Eden and He stationed the cherubim on guard at the east of the Garden of Eden.
To be more specific, He made the cherubim to guard the way to the tree of life from which the fruit of life is borne.
In the bible, the records about the cherubim in the Garden of Eden appear after Adam committed sin.
However, cherubim were already there in the Garden of Eden.
The cherubim escorted Adam, and guarded the Garden of Eden.
The east side of the Garden of Eden adjoins the domain of Darkness.
Lucifer and the evil spirits always look for a chance to tempt the people in the Garden of Eden.
Therefore, God sent cherubim to the Garden of Eden to help Adam.
In addition, some of the cherubim always escorted Adam.
Adam was the leader in the highest rank to rule over the Garden of Eden and the Earth.
The cherubim were sent to escort Adam, suitable for Adam’s position and authority.
A long time ago, when a king went somewhere, there were many people who escorted and followed the king.
The kings’ sedan chair or chariot was big and splendid, and even the soldiers that escorted the king exuded dignity and authority.
Imagine a king who was riding on a horse all by himself.
Don’t you think he would look shabby-
Likewise, the dignity and glory of a king may differ when he is escorted or when he is not.
That’s why God sent the cherubim to escort Adam.
When Adam visited the earth, the cherubim followed him and escorted him.
We can feel how special God’s consideration for Adam was.
However, God the Father’s consideration for Adam didn’t stop here.
He had another special present for Adam.
He created animals that resembled the look of the cherubim and gave them to Adam.
They were the dinosaurs.
All the animals and plants which were created on earth could also be found in the Garden of Eden.
However, dinosaurs were found only in the Garden of Eden.
When God created the plants and animals on earth, He used the ground and water of the earth as materials.
As God spoke ‘words’ in His voice, they were created as to the blueprints.
I will give you detailed explanation about the creation process of plants and animals as we get to Genesis 2:19.
By the way, the material that God used to create the dinosaurs was not from the earth, but it was the ground of the Garden of Eden.
The Garden of Eden is the mid-dimension between the spirit and flesh. It has ground and waters like the earth.
Therefore, the dinosaurs which were made from the ground of the Garden of Eden were the animals that had bones and skin.
Since they were created from the material that belongs to the 2nd heaven, their constituents were different from the animals of the earth.
As you examine a dinosaurs’ fossil, you can find a very interesting fact.
According to the study of their bones, people found that they had very strong bone structure.
Dinosaurs were not created on the earth, but they were originally created in the Garden of Eden of the 2nd heaven.
They were special pets that God gave to Adam.
The earth is a physical space with limits, but the Garden of Eden is an endless and vast place.
That’s why God created dinosaurs of such a huge size.
Of course, God created various kinds of dinosaurs in different sizes and shapes.
There were normal sized dinosaurs, but most of them were quite large.
The original look of the dinosaurs that God created is much different from what you know today.
Originally, dinosaurs looked very beautiful and they were lovely.
After they were driven out from the Garden of Eden to the earth, they transformed to look hideous.
Among them, there were some dinosaurs that were not fully transformed. As its result, fossils of some ‘colorful dinosaurs’ were found.
Related to this, a study made by some British scientists was reported by the Hankook Ilbo and Chinese newspapers.
The study said that dinosaurs, known to have only gray color, might have had a fancy look with the feathers in orange and white colors.
Dinosaurs always stayed by Adam and gave joy and pleasure to him.
They played with Adam, and he rode on their backs when he moved from one place to another.
When Adam rode on the back of dinosaurs, he had a different I kind of fun and enjoyment than riding on a UFO.
Moreover, dinosaurs could communicate with Adam.
Since they were gentle and simple in characteristics, they obeyed Adam well.
However, dinosaurs were not wise enough to understand Adam’s deep heart.
They were just lovely animals that give simple joy and pleasure to Adam.
Dinosaurs spent long period of time with Adam in the Garden of Eden.
They multiplied and increased in numbers.
Since the Garden of Eden is far bigger than the earth, it was not a problem when the number of dinosaurs increased.
However, an incident broke out so that all the dinosaurs were driven out to the earth.
It will be explained in the next lecture.
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
In this lecture, I first explained that there are passageway and corridors to the spiritual realm from this earth.
When you are properly qualified according to justice, God gives answer to your prayer through these passageways.
I also told you about the reason why Adam frequently visited the earth, and mentioned about his favorite place.
I also explained about the ‘cherubim’ that escorted Adam and that guard the Garden of Eden.
I told you as well a little bit about the dinosaurs which were the gift that God gave to Adam.
In the history of mankind, how many people do you think have known these spiritual facts
You are listening to the facts that nobody could know unless God explained it.
It is a great benefit to you if you know of the spiritual realm.
And many of these things can become lessons to you.
May you long for these Genesis Lectures and quickly accomplish the spirit and whole spirit, in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, I pray!
