The Holy Spirit/Jesus and Eden #2
Similarities of Action of the Elohim God (The Holy Spirit/Jesus) on The Born Again Human and Eden on the Born Again Earth
Parallel stories; The Bible often deals with parallel stories or repeating themes or types, once the revelation that Eden was seeded from Heaven, several parallel stories become apparent. The similitude between Eden and The Holy Spirit/Jesus is very strong see above. This can be extended even further.
Genesis 2 changes to referring to God as Lord God in Genesis 2:4 when the second creation-
The role of each member of the Trinity in Genesis 6 day creation defines the metaphor key
The Earth/land/ground metaphors with God The Father (The dust = part of the the ‘Earth’)
Genesis 2:5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
The metaphor jumps thousands of years forward. Note the way the way the fruit bearing tree of Genesis 1:11(Jesus) is not mentioned here. Before plants and herbs can grow they need water, before any work or spiritual gift can be actioned , man needs ‘mist’ to activate them. Jesus and The Holy Spirit do not need activating so trees are not included here. See the big Kosmos-
There was no man is reminiscent of Revelation 4:5-
Genesis 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground
God (Earth) provides The Holy Spirit (mist) that enables these gifts to be activated-
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul
A new spirit man is formed within man from mans original spirit and whatever The Holy Spirit has added to it. This being a hint as to the constituents of our spirit
Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
The metaphor of the Garden of Eden for The indwelling Holy Spirit/Lord Jesus Christ may be describing the Holy Spirit teaching us good and evil.
Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Man is given this in-
Man can freely enjoy the fruit of these spiritual gifts but not all, one specific rule must be followed or you will die. This is reminiscent of sins against the spirit ( Certain Eden trees) (Acts 5:1-
Genesis 2:18+: There are many more allusions to spiritual gifts/indwellings the Body of Christ in these next verses too, in particular, the making of animals with the same constituents as humans may confirm our spiritual gift of authority over them.

As God does for life on planet earth so he does for our spirit. As Adam received and injury to his side top get a bride so does Christ get a redeemed spirit for his bride. (First alluded to by Chuck Missler in his Genesis commentary)
What God does for life (kosmos) on the born again earth so he does for our born again spirit.
