Commentary: this Earth is a temporary physical world existing between two eternal spiritual worlds called Heaven and Hell. Like the principle of the magnetic attraction of the north and south poles, some of us are drawn off to Heaven, and some of us are drawn off to Hell.

(Gen 2:8,9)  And the LORD God planted [implicit connotations of purpose and “order”] a garden eastward [from God] in Eden [delight]; and there he put the man whom he had formed. 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 [Jesus Christ] also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good [Lucifer] and evil [Satan].

5.       (Ezek 28:13a)  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God….

Thou wast perfect [good] in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity [evil] was found in thee.

6.       Commentary: What was the garden protecting? What was the garden protecting from?

(Gen 1:1-4)  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void [an undistinguishable ruin]; and darkness was upon the face of the deep [an abyss (as a surging mass of water)] [A TYPE OF HELL]. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light [A TYPE OF HEAVEN]. And God saw the light, that it was good [but it was still mingled with the darkness]: and God divided [separated] the light from the darkness.

2.       (1 Cor 14:33)  For God is not the author of confusion [instability, i.e. disorder: commotion, confusion, tumult /// inconstant: unstable], but of peace [“and order” Amplified], as in all churches of the saints.

Commentary: God is separating, dividing out Heaven from Hell, good from evil, order from chaos, through the separation (sanctification) for Himself of His saints. God is separating us from Satan and his fallen angels, demons, unclean spirits, and the unclean men in whom they reside.

(Mat 25:41)  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand [the goats], Depart [separate] from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
