There were four rivers in eden and satan was among the trees in the garden, and Adam walked with God
four is the number of physical completion
Adam was fooled or tricked by the illusion of “good” of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil; the lie that to have something good you have to put up with the bad: satanic thought from counterfeit light of lucifer: offers you something that appears really good but is hiding the evil side effects, harm, robbing you of life, destructive and even deadly (so many examples in this world today).
But God! God knew the end before the beginning and in the fullness of time sent Jesus who finished the work of the Cross, ending all bondage and enslavement to the things of Adam and this world: the old heavens on earth
but mankind has free will and ever since many have stayed asleep or refused to come to the crossroad of the Cross
for they prefer darkness to the blazing, brilliant, blinding, powerful, fiery Light radiating from resurrected, ascended, glorified Christ Jesus
that removes dross by the cross!
and opens the Door for the seven rivers of spirit from the throne to spiritually complete you
seven is the number of spiritual completion.
The Cross eternally stands in the gap between God and human beings, between the highest heaven and earth; bridging the gap between you and our Father through Jesus by the Power of the Holy Spirit.
The four points of the Cross are like the four rivers of eden; the waters were tainted by satan and like throwing a stick in dirty water in the old covenant made it temporarily clean to drink, the Cross makes our body water permanently clean as long as we continue to drink of Christ through the seven rivers of holy Spirit from heaven out of God!
Jesus purified, refined and made “white as snow” by His Blood the horizontal, earthly river and made it possible for the River of Water of Life to flow down vertically from heaven out of God to make a new heaven on earth where righteousness dwells in those who live in Christ, the “place” he prepared for us in Himself; our body water purified and kept holy by the river of water of life from the throne.
We come to the Crossroads initially, when enough is enough, and we realize our ways have led us in the ditch and what seems right was destructive and we come to the end of our resources, sick and tired of being sick and tired, weary, heavy-laden with burdens we were never meant to carry. Jesus says, “Come to Me and I will give you Rest, unite with Me, learn from Me, drink of Me and rivers of Living Water will flow from you”
We come to the Crossroads again every time something APPEARS that was conquered and overcome by the Cross so we can apply the Blood and speak the Word as a Sword of the Spirit, boldly and confidently, and the liar, deceiver, trickster, thief, murderer, destroyer is overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony; for we no longer live, but Christ lives in us. We no longer love the old life of the world for we have tasted the new life in a new heaven on earth: Christ in us!
“We are crucified with Christ in weakness, but live in Christ by the Power of God. Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test yourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” 2 Cor 13:4-5
“No one tears a piece of the new garment and puts it on the old…the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins…the skins will be destroyed…And no one after drinking old wine desires the new; for he says, ‘the old is good’ ” Luke 5:36-39
“From NOW on, we regard no one from a human point of view…Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come” 2 Cor 5:16-17
If we see everything from the Cross, we see as God sees. Our heart eyes, ears and perception are opened to spiritually see, hear and perceive ascended, glorified Christ. What we behold, we become.
“All with unveiled faces, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit” 2 Cor 3:18
We are qualified as we come to the Crossroads of the Cross and enter in with Jesus; coming through the Cross into the promised land: into Christ Himself who is in God. The Spirit of the Living God writes the Word on our heart (2 Cor 3:2-16) making us a citizen of a new heaven on earth; God’s ambassadors to earth from above the highest heaven where Christ sits with God; flowing with the seven rivers of spirit from the Throne with seven torches of fire (seven times greater than the sun), seven horns of oil (seven times greater than any power on earth) and seven eyes (seven times greater than any wisdom on earth) in the pure, bright, crystal clear River of Water of Life flowing down through the finished work of the Cross into our spirit and soul and body; bringing a new heaven to earth.
No one knows but the Father when the new physical earth will happen, but we can live, move and have our being in a new heaven on earth in Christ, Christ in you, the “place” where righteousness dwells and nothing unclean or accursed can enter; a tree of life bearing Christ Fruit for the glory of God.
Earth produces earth: first the stalk, then the head, then the head full of grain (Mark 4:28). New heaven (Christ) produces new heaven (Christ in you): first the Cross, then the Mind of Christ, then our mind full of Christ! The crossroads of the Cross change our mindsets from worldly ways of thinking to the NEW! We don’t become double-minded, we take the NEW Mind of Christ through the Power of the Holy Spirit and let the fire of God remove all old ways of thinking!
“Do not conform to the world, but be TRANSFORMED by the Mind of Christ” that we renew every morning when we remember the finished work of the Cross! “It is finished!” Do not be fooled by appearances or manipulated appearances of the world; come to Christ and See! Hear! Spiritually Perceive! Receive! Be! Do what you were created to be and do for such a time as this! “It is done! Behold I make ALL THINGS NEW!”
The Cross is a game changer, timeline changer, life changer. Christ changed my life! The Cross is permanently standing in the gap; come to the Cross! The Cross changed my life! The Cross is the Rock-Solid Foundation upon which we let Wisdom build us up into a new temple of God filled with the Power of the Holy Spirit! Nothing is impossible with God; all things are possible with Christ in God!
