“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

The Garden and God's throne

The beasts of the garden represented all the races of intelligent life throughout the vast realm, the animal fur simulating the glory shining from those inhabitants. The birds of the air symbolized the cherubim and seraphim which traverse the universe, and the bird feathers, the power which moves the angels.

The chimpanzee represented Adam, made in God’s image. Adam himself represented the Creator; and Eve typified the Comforter, His Spirit of truth. All the trees from which Adam and his wife could freely eat represented the Trees of life on all the varied planets inhabited by the other intelligent life. The juice from the trees of Adam’s garden reflected the joys of the Rivers of life flowing on those planets.

From the Tree of life in the midst of Earth’s garden sprang the River of life, which flowed out of the garden in four cardinal directions, bringing life to the whole globe. This tree represented God, the source of all life to His infinite universe. The fruit was both comforting and empowering. There was intimacy and wholesomeness in its flavor, which drew them back day after day, and an electrifying, sour bitterness in the stomach that cleansed their body, mind, and soul.

The two lights in the heavens, both similar in size and of a differing brilliance, represented the Father and the Son. The sun that ruled the day was perfect in its clearness, overpowering, and unchanging in nature. The moon, marred and variable in its turning shadow, represented the Son who condescended from His divine essence to don the form of a created angel; the Son—royal Co-regent and roving ruler in His Father’s kingdom. He made the stars also to speak to Adam of the Creator’s accompanying ministers, the angelic hosts.

The consumption of the fruit of life at the Tree satisfied the sexuality of the first couple so that no urge from their bodies ever arose. So innocent were they that a blanket of light covered their nakedness, as the fur covered the bodies of the animals around them. So satisfied were the holy pair from the Tree of life that often they had no appetite for any other food.

And as they lifted up their harmonious voices, and their praises rang through the garden, all the beast of the field and birds of the air sang with them in a raucous, joyous symphony. They were perfectly happy in their garden home and God was glorified before His angelic hosts , who discerned the lessons built into the multitudinous object lessons pervading this new world and rushed to teach all the inhabited worlds of creation. The more they studied Earth, the more they learned from the living parables. They saw a model of heaven, a model that only their Creator Godhead could design and implement.

And they echo the grand choruses they heard from Earth, as they “fall down before Him that sat on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Rev. 4:10,11).
