Myles Munroe: God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden. The word “Eden” is a complicated word in Hebrew. Eden was not referring to garden of trees, even if they were in that environment… it was referring to order!
The word “Eden” means spot..
It means delightful spot…
It means open door..
Is a spot on earth for the moment where God has open door from heaven on earth. That’s where God put the man “In His presence”. That’s why we can’t find Eden today. Eden is not a place, Eden is an environment.
Eden is an atmosphere, it is the presence of God..
So, when man sin, the Bible says, God drove them from the atmosphere(garden of Eden) and the atmosphere went back up to heaven.
When God made the first male, He put him in His presence. ..
The first thing God gave a man was His presence. So, the first thing a man need is not a woma. The most important thing a man need is the presence of God. And a woman should meet you in the presence of God.
Some women amazed me, they leave the presence of God, going to the bush to find a brother and then, try to drag him back to the presence of God…
The next thing God told the man is “work”
God gave man and work before a woman. That means a man need a job before he gets a woman.
The third thing God told the man is “cultivate”
Cultivate means to bring out the best in everything around you, to maximise the potential of everything around you, to make everything fruitful…. He only said that to the male! That’s why God will never give a male a finished woman.
The male was created by God to create what he wants… the woman you are looking for doesn’t exist, she is in your head. Your job is to take the raw material you marry and cultivate it to the woman in your head.
So, you being married for 25years and still don’t like the product you get, that’s your fault… Jesus said, husband love your wife like I love my wife.. now He tells us how He do it: He said;
He wash her with the word..
He remove every spot, wrinkle, blemish and present her to yourself.
If your wife is putting on weight and you don’t like the fact that she is putting on weight, don’t criticise her.. wake up and take her for jogging.
She can’t speak good English, take her to take and pay for the tuition..
The fourth thing God told the man is “guard the garden”
The male is supposed to be the protector. That’s why God gave you a stronger bone frame, a bigger muscle max, not to abuse the woman but to protect the woma.
The last thing God gave the man is “His Word”
God said, Adam do not touch the tree. God never told the woman about the tree. Which means the male was the only one who got the word of God. His job was to teach his wife the word of God.
Then lastly, God said, it is not good for this man to be alone… which man?
The man who is in His presence…
Can cultivate you..
Can teach you the word..
Can protect you..
So, here is the problem… if you meet a man;
Who don’t like His presence…
Can’t cultivate and improve you..
Can’t protect you and don’t know God’s Word..
It is good for that man to be alone!!!
