When all is said, and all has been done, there is not much more that can be said and done. We have spoken for several days now about the closing of the doors to Eden. Not many people understand what it means to close the doors to Eden. They assume that we are referring to actual doors to a Garden of Eden that has been planted with fruit trees (including apple), pomegranates, daisies, tulips, and other edibles and inedibles. They assume also that even when the doors have closed, they may yet be able to "jimmy" the lock and get in, climb in over a fence, or pay someone on the inside to let them through the door. Their concept of heaven is a place beyond the sky, and the clouds, and the stars. But you have heard it said that the kingdom of heaven is within you, and it is.
Within each heart, the Lord God Almighty positioned a valve that opens and closes whenever our hearts are full. The valve enables the blood to flow throughout the body. This valve was closed when Adam and Eve were in the Garden; it never opened. Although they had blood in their arteries, the blood did not need to flow because it never became polluted, and therefore, did not need to be cleansed. It was pure when they were created and it remained pure until they sinned. When sin entered, the tiny valve was opened and their blood began to flow. When blood flows through the heart, the heart's energy is depleted. It cannot do the things it should do, nor can it speak the words it should speak. It must rely on the brain for virtually every aspect of its existence. It also must rely on the liver to keep it strong and healthy.
When the Lord God Almighty closes the valve, we will become like God. The Lord God Almighty created the heart to be a self-contained organ. He never intended that it should rely on any other organ for its existence, or for its survival. We will become capable of astronomical feats and incredible accomplishments, when this valve is closed. We will be able to do things never before seen, heard, or imagined. We will become like God. When Eden's door is closed, the Lord God Almighty will be our God forevermore, and we will be like God.
