DId you know that you were in the Garden of Eden?

All of humanity existed in a very special place, even before the foundation of the world, and then, one by one, each individual made their way to this earth and made their mark in this world.

Waiting to make an entrance

Did you know that you existed in the mind of God before the foundation of the world? We existed in the mind of God before our first grandparents stood on their feet in the Garden of Eden. Adam and Eve were the first to receive their spirits after God formed their physical bodies. Those still to be born are awaiting their turn to enter this earth upon their conception in the womb of a woman somewhere on this earth.

What’s the point of knowing this?

I’ll try to explain this as simply as possible. After God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, He blessed them and said, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Gen 1:28)

And so we multiplied

And so a process of procreation commenced, but before it started, Adam and Eve sinned, breaking their communion with God. In effect, they transferred their allegiance to Satan. They became spiritually dead. I’m sure we are all familiar with the story and the need for salvation through Jesus Christ, so I won’t go into that right now. The point I am emphasising is, although we were not born yet, we all became as guilty as Adam and Eve. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Rom 5:12)

So how on earth could their sin have passed on to us and why should we suffer for something we did not do? This is where our existence in the mind of God before the foundation of the world enters the equation. The only way we could enter the world, from the mind of God to a place on earth, was through a sin-laden, death-bound human body which originated in Adam. It was passed on from to generation to generation to this day. Our very sinful nature is testament to this fact. Our righteousness is as a filthy rag in the sight of God. Before we were born again we had an aversion for the things of God. All those not yet saved run from any talk of salvation. Because of their condition of sin, children start rebelling against their parents from a very young age. We are captives of the god of this world who plies us with a plethora of pleasures so as to harden ourselves against anything to do with God.

The fact that we had to enter this world through the genes of a condemned physical body originating with Adam, placed us right there in the Garden of Eden. We might as well have been “born” at the same time as Adam; heard the voice of the serpent ourselves; eaten of the forbidden fruit as if we were in cahoots with Adam and Eve and hid ourselves from God in the same way they did. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” (1Cor 15:22)

It should, therefore, be understood that every human being is absolutely guilty of sin and in need of salvation “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Rom 3:23)

So why did God continue to allow the procreation of a sinful human creature if He knew the consequences?

And then the lamb made his entrance

There’s a beautiful answer to this. Just as we were in the mind of God before the foundation of the world, so too, was Jesus Christ, who was without sin, with pure God-given blood and, therefore, able to take our punishment of death and condemnation upon Himself. His blood cleansed us once and for all, washing away our sins and, thereby, reconciling us to God. “But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,” (1 Peter 1:19,20)

Jesus always existed as the Word of God. But He was “foreordained” to become flesh as one of us and as the Son of God on earth for one purpose and one purpose only – to save all who would come to Him and receive Him as Lord and Saviour.

All of the above, therefore, should clear up the question as to why there is a need for man to be saved. And the only time we have is right now.
