The garden of Eden had four rivers and a snake.
The new heaven and new earth where righteousness dwells in Christ has one River of Water of Life and no snake!
“If, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man [fallen Adam under the father of lies], much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ” Romans 5:17
NOTHING unclean, evil, dark, accursed, abomination, falsehood, lie, deception, manipulation can enter Christ (Revelation 21:22-27); apart from Christ are the dogs, sorcerers, murderers (angry, haters), fornicators (lust of the eyes and lust of the flesh), idolaters, those practicing falsehood (22:15), cowards, faithless, polluted (unclean spirits, familiar demonic spirits, spirit of the world) liars (21:8); the old leaven of world religion under the god of this world who blinds minds, woke darkness, giving the spirit of error,
but IN CHRIST is the NEW leaven, the new Bride is not unleavened or of the old leaven of fallen Adam, but IN CHRIST and CHRIST in you, the imperishable Seed of the Word watered by the Spirit of God, the Living Water of Life from the Throne, grows Christ in you to maturity; IN CHRIST there is the glory of God, our internal light with CHRIST in you, having the glory of God within (21:11, 23), and the lamp of the Lamb, our inner fire, oil, and eyes to see (21:23) within,
when Christ abides in you, as you abide in Christ (John 15:4) as the spiritual Bride to her One Husband (2 Corinthians 11:2); the Spirit of God received within (Isaiah 11:2), the Word made flesh, the King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:10-16), wife of the Lamb of God, the Lord of lords and King of kings, those called and chosen and faithful (17:14) to the Faithful, True, Righteous Word of God, wielding the Sword of the Spirit, the breath of Life, to slay the dragons found in the new promised land in the Bride making herself ready; waiting and hastening the Promise of a NHONE where righteousness dwells (2 Peter 3:11-14; Revelation 19:7; Matthew 25:1-13), the Spirit and the Word in her, and waiting for the physical coming. God prepares a banquet in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23); anoints you with the Holy One anointing in the Bride, Christ Spirit abiding in you, teaching you everything he taught and said, all true and no lie, AND teaches you to abide IN CHRIST (1 John 2:20-28)
“Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy. “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end” Revelation 22:10-13
The Bride is repaid glory to glory; the harlot is repaid evil for evil.
