FRAGRANT PRAISE
Rivers of Eden
CHAPTER SIX

 

In discussing intimacy, we have to talk about the rivers of Eden.

Genesis 2:10–14,

A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it separated and became four heads. The name of one is Pishon; that is the one that encompasses all the land of Havilah, where there is gold. The gold of that land is good; there is the crystal and the onyx stone. The name of the second river is Gihon; that is the one that encompasses all the land of Cush. The name of the third river is Hiddekel; that is the one that flows to the east of Ashur. And the fourth river, that is Euphrates


I’m going to start with the first of the four rivers of Eden The river: Pishon.
Before I do that, I want to give you an outline of the four Rivers as the Lord revealed to me helping me understand the four Spiritual chambers of the HEART.

Through Pishon -We find the Lord's pleasure.
It's Eden’s pleasure to build us up ( first) in Pishon!
i.e. In Prayer/ the word of God establishes us in Pishon - 
It's where wealth and riches dwell.

Gihon: In his process, we are cleansed!
Hiddekal: In his purpose were established!
Euphrates: In his mandate, He raises you as a mighty oak, a mighty tree of righteousness in Eden!

Let’s focus on the first river of Eden.
In Intimacy-Pishon Holy Spirit causes you to chew the word till it’s deposited in the stomach, then to the heart.
As I said, Eden is where everything begins!
So I found that inside of intimacy, inside of Eden, inside of this place God is building something.
There lies the foundation of the gospel of Jesus Christ!

I

 

 Where are the Rivers of Eden? Good question! The rivers of Eden are in me! It's in the into, me, see that we carry the RIVERS OF EDEN!

This has been a very laborious journey one, that I’ve questioned 1000 times. Do I have what it takes to even write a book, even a simple book -much less a book about the four branches of the river of God?

Who am I but a willing vessel, still rested and yielded?

 So, I started on my journey wanting to understand the flow of the rivers of Eden or in other words- the Intimate knowledge of the river of God!

The Rivers of Eden are much like a greatly loved bride, she gives her full body to her lover! She gives her will, her way to him!

 Our soul says yes as a bride! Our soul says yes as a dove! Our spirit says yes as a son! Our spirit says yes as a friend of God!

So I’m going to try to describe the rivers of God, and their four sections starting with The first branch or lead branch Pishon.

Let's call this branch: intimacy.

The Second branch, l process.

The Third purpose,

and the Fourth branch we will call our mandate!

As I write this manuscript I want you to pay attention to these four words: Intimacy, Process, Purpose, and Mandate!

Without intimacy being the lead branch. there will be no process purpose or mandate. So we must consider Intimacy the primary branch flowing from the throne of GOD.

So let’s talk about the lead branch intimacy. 

The lead branch speaks of The justification of Christ Jesus.

His consuming love and his pure passion for us.

In this intimate relationship with his breathing breath, he drives out all foreign invaders.

He brings his rod into our land into our wilderness.

 

 He says: I am your narrow rod of communication ( breath) bringing your wide-open fractured soul into refinement.

Here, listen, and stand to be tested! Become fully dependent on me. I am your intercessor, I am your advocate! I am your intimacy! I am your process to purpose revealing your mandate!

 I am your rescue to deliverance!

 I am your fullness to the overflow!

 I am your fruitful bow to the fruitful Bow by a wall!

 I am the arising to your shining!

 I am your white horse in revelations!

 I’m your song and to the singing of it!

 I am your rod of discipline to your staff of fellowship!

 

I am the keeper of your wells and the pourer into the nations.

I am your narrow place to your

 broad places of ministry!

 I am your glorification!

I am your inhale, I am your exhale!

I am your YH!

I am your WH!

YaH WeH

I am you’re going, and  I am you’re coming in!

I am your bitter winds and your sweet winds of change!

I am your sacrifice!

I am your praise!

I am you're crying out in dry places!

I am your well of relief!

 I am your speaking, and I am your performing of it!

I am your running!

I am your walking!

I am you’re saying!

I am THE doing!

I am your clean, and I am your holy!

I am praying!

I am serving!

I am the valley!

I am in the mountains!

I AM your HEAD! 

 

 I am: 

WORKS IN LOVE

He’s causing us to cry out in our distress! He wants to take us from bitterness to sweetness from dryness to times of refreshing, TO wells of relief.

 

You’re beginning to bear his traits even in your suffering knowing that your suffering produces character and character produces hope.

 

But hope deferred makes the heart sick!

Proverbs 13 verse 12 Moses and Israel sat out from the Red Sea to the wilderness a three-day journey.

The word Red Sea in Hebrew means Yam siphon Yam means sea or day-edge.

 

We are being weaned!

Psalms 131

Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul like a weaned child with his mother.

 

Prayer:

Father God,  God weans us from slavery, from the need to always be taught! 

2 Timothy 3:17

( That we would be)  furnished unto all good works.

 

Let the butterfat of your word rise in our soul making us satisfied in you, calling forth the true Fathers and Mothers of the SPIRIT!

Psalms 36:8

Galatians 4:19

Drink and be continually filled from the delightful Springs of  Edens river or Edens pleasure!

You're going from dry (thirsty) narrow places to flowing gushing rivers!

We are hearing his cry to come, and we are going willingly through the justification of his fire, his love where there's no more hesitation, no more deliberation!

He’s rescuing us in his holy paths, in his holy routes!

He's placing our tongues on HIS highway of HOLINESS!

This is the river of separation where your intimacy comes before process, purpose, and mandates.

We cry out to Jesus to process us in our land.

In obeying YOU quickly, we conform to your will.

Rise up my virgin bride come away with me!

 

The river Pison is the place of the rod!

Proverbs 14:3

3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride:

But the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

What is this ROD?

This rod is your TONGUE!

If your tongue is a blessing this you bear no more broken Roads!

In this place, there are no more broken paths!

Only good healthy cycles and healthy seasons of change.

In seasons of change our soul receives healthy microbes.

These nutrients aerate our soil allowing it to breathe and expand.

FAITH!

I declare no more compact hard ground or hearts that are dark.

Romans 12:1

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

You’re rooted in him!

You’re growing up!

You’re going deep and you're finding living Springs!

Colossians 27

 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Read full chapter

You’re stretching out!

The burdens of the world can’t reach those that go deep!

You’re a juicy ripe, plump, rich full-butter fat BRANCH!

Isaiah 5

Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

In the Song of the Vineyard  God cultivate you.

Let him run his fingers through you pulling out all the tangled knots in your heart.

 Proverbs 22:15

Foolishness is tangled up in the heart of a youth; the rod of discipline will drive it away from him.

 

2 Samuel 18:9 

Absalom was riding on his mule when he happened to meet David’s soldiers. When the mule went under the tangled branches of a large oak tree, Absalom’s head was caught fast in the tree. The mule under him kept going, so he was suspended in midair.

He wants to build a fortress inside of you that many can run in and find rest.

 

Prayer

Aerate our soil!

Grow us up!

Weed us!

Seed us!

Prune us!

No more junk food in our soul or soil, but only healthy meals!

Lord, We want to learn how to feed ourselves so that we can be those who can fully understand the flow of the river or the intimate knowledge of the rivers of God!

Make us Mothers and Fathers of the word that we may be teachers.

You're a Gideon's Army arising!

You're riding on the heights of the land!

You’re eating curds and milk!

Isaiah 7:22

 And because of the abundance of the milk they give, there will be curds to eat. All who remain in the land will eat curds and honey.

Fed us in high places-

When we are Gideon's army we’re full of faith!

We believe God’s arm is long enough to take us through the short route around.

No more heavy gates, ears!

 

Isaiah 59-1

Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.  

But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you so that he will not hear.

 For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt.

Matthew 13:15

 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

 

2 Timothy 4:3 3

For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears, they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires.  So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

Isaiah 55 :1

If anyone is thirsty he says come and drink.

You don’t have to have money this thirst comes by way of hunger!

You will be satisfied as you’re being cleansed, washed in the Word, in the river of intimacy!

 His sword his light has broken over you!

You’re beginning to bear or wear a garment of light!

In the river, you’re becoming a river!

You’re not just in the river!

You are a river!

You are beginning to bear this light.

You’re glowing!

You are being refined!

You honor God by obeying his word.

 You’re a disciple that’s being disciplined.

This discipline understands character, consistency, and endurance.

 Galatians 5

 It speaks of not being destroyed but refined by obeying him quickly.

 Your hope will overflow because of peace. and joy is your garment of praise. It replaces the spirit of heaviness.

Peace and joy is the fruit of being consistent!-

Living letters can be seen beaming out of your garment of light!

 "My Garment of LIGHT"

I had a dream.

In this dream, I saw a garment of light. This garment was not a garment I was wearing. I was the garment. At first, I just appeared to be a clay earthen vessel.

But then all I know, is, I began to glow.

There were words cut out all along the garment.

I understood these words were the words of life- his word!

The word!

It was his "word" that made me glow!

To explain the cutouts I would have to say (It would be like If you were to use a cookie cutter, cutting out cookies from a rolled piece of dough- the impressions left behind is what I saw. Next, my garment began to take on the shape of an hourglass.

It was then that I began to see a greater light.

I understood there was a greater light fastened on the inside of the me-my garment.

 As this greater light burned within me, it would shine through the cut-out words

causing my garment to glow!

I was glowing.

But, at the same time, there was a much brighter light that was shining through, beaming through the cutouts.

I knew and understood that The light within the center of the garment was the greater light.

This greater light shines within us that is His word.

If we put the word inside of us it becomes imprinted upon us, and then can shine through us- being the greater light- our Spirit- His breath!

The greater light - His Spirit-within us burns so that we - our Soul-would glow -for all the world to see!

 

 

You’re shining your shimmering.

You're a glimmering example of hope!

You’re being lifted and elevated!

This refinement has brought you into a pure state of perfection in Him. 

 Psalms 12:6

The words of the Lord are pure words like silver refined in a furnace.

This is ( my garment)

 We carry his genealogy redemption in our new day; his never-ending story, his silver chord.

 

Galatians 5:22

This is his love story we bare on our knees

 

 His love found us, and his love fights for us!

Because his love fights for us we fight for others!

When we fight for others, then we have found our roar.

 Because his love found me and fights for me, we are found in him, and we know how to fight!

 

Your mouth is a gateway of praise!

Keep it swinging open fully oiled with God's word!

Swing open, wide you, HIS gates!

Dream


DREAM

In a dream in the night, I saw myself in my painting studio on my hands, and knees gliding my hands across the floor. The floor of my banner room was made of brilliant inlaid stone. The stone had approximately three colors inlaid; I saw brownish-red, light brown, and white.

I noticed the stones were of different shapes and sizes. As I gently glided my hands across these stones, what stood out to me, was Its ultra-silky smoothness.

Large veins were circling each stone marking the demarcation of each stone. Just before I woke up I had what’s called a waking dream. It was like God revealed to me the image ( in pictorial form) of my foundation. This foundation was so silky-smooth, with “no jagged edges.”

It had a rocky lacquered appearance!

  I was taken up from that place out of that dream just before I woke up into another experience, where I saw a PURPLE Glory banner with beautiful tiny yellow flowers all lined up in perfect symmetry.

There was a narrow white trim around each flower. It was like the Lord was showing me, that he was building HIS foundation within me! And it is built out of the word of God!

Jacinth Stone:
The eleventh of twelve precious stones used in the New Jerusalem-

The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Revelation 21:19-21


Jacinth Stone


Jacinth is the first stone mentioned in the Bible in the third row of the priest's breastplate (Exodus 28:19). It is derived from the Hebrew word Leshem


What does this mean?
We are in the 11th hour of a Joseph Company being birthed!
11 is the number for PUSH!
It represents the birth of the Fragrant hyacinth, or the 11th hour maturated sons of God!
Samuel was an 11-hour son.
We are seeing an 11th-hour BRIDE coming forth!!
An eleventh-hour remnant people, a fragrant hyacinth.

I am his Jacinth stone! I am his hyacinth flower!

It's in this place of pleasure-Eden, you receive your new name, under the huppa!
You’re getting a new garment, ring, necklace, shoes that elevate, and a crown of light- on your head, and authority in your mouth. You are a light sword!

We are a part of this war-ship (worship) gathering! Even the division ( rivalries) that have occurred between nations, and sister states- i.e: sisters fighting each other.

Much like Leah & Rachel…

They came full circle!
We’re coming full circle too!

We are a Full Term Bride company!

A living sacrifice has a fragrance to life!

There's no praise unless its fragrant!

First to God!

Revealed to Men!

I love the story of Rachael and Leah.

Rachael's barrenness is over!

Jacob's eleventh son is born!

 
God is declaring over us his fullness -to the overflow!


I LOVE the story of Rachel and Leah!
Leah reminds me of Mississippi!
Did you know that Leah’s “antagonist” Rachael extracted Leah’s perfume resulting in ( praise) by her persistent crushing, and made her a perfumed bow, or a fruitful bough -a Bent bow giving birth to Judah, or praise,
so, Rachael was a nursemaid helping Leah unknowingly
helping her push her sons out !!

Zechariah 9:13 For I have bent Judah, My bow, Fitted the bow with Ephraim, And raised your sons, O Zion, Against your sons, O Greece, And made you like the sword of a mighty man.”
Leah was Racheal’s sacrifice producing a Joseph in the end! Let’s continue to pray for America!
In particular Mississippi!


The least of all the states, and the least of all the cities: Jackson, Ms!
Her womb may feel forgotten!
It's not! 
It's just pregnant!


Through the persistent crushing, bending, twisting, and turning ( Eden’s intimate River ), I pray that Mississippi- ALL NATIONS comes into their birthright becoming a flexible, fragrant, perfumed bow giving birth to many intimate-praisers resulting in many Josephs.

Dream

November 12, 2022 

 
In a large room on a talI table just to the side, I saw three, or four long pieces of remnant fabric, maybe a yard each fanned out smoothly.
I remember seeing “the color purple.” I saw a man dressed in a nice suit, began to speak to me. He said, “ I need this!” He took a pair of scissors and cut a narrow swatch from my purple fabric right at its edge.
It was about the third layer down… I think this part represents the third row in the breastplate of Aaron. He began to talk to me at "length"
about things relating to the church. I don’t remember what he said. The next portion of the dream- I was in my church's parking lot struggling to find a space to park my car.

I think this means.” where do I “fit” in the church?

 
The table spread: I believe the table represents the table of the Lord.
Psalm 23:5
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.…
I remember the fabric "spreading out" and "running over!"

 The fabric was so large. The fanning, or spreading of fabric reminded me of the wings of an eagle that mounted up.

I believe God’s giving us room to spread out!
It's all in his timing!
The piece of fabric the angel cut: The Lord showed me, He needs us!

THE FLOWER I saw was a bluish-purple hyacinth.
I believe God is saying: He wants to fill the house with his presence, or his fragrance and HE'S going to give us space to do that!
Not only for me but for you too!!
I see a building being built in the natural!

 

“God’s chemistry set”


There’s a school of thought that Jaspers may be red. The breastplate stones were probably spoils from Egypt and Egyptian jasper was known to be only one of three colors — brown, yellow, or red, but not green. Also, the appearance of Jesus sitting on His throne in Revelation 4:3 is described as "to look upon like a jasper and a sardius stone.” The sardius stone is a red carnelian and the reference is equating the two stones as looking very similar. Jesus is elsewhere described as having fire in His eyes (Revelation 1:14 - "His eyes like a flame of fire") and He shed His blood for our salvation (Matthew 26:28). Red jasper is found in "bloodstone." Bloodstone is dark to medium green with small spots of red jasper scattered throughout. Many early Christians wore it to remind themselves of Christ's sacrifice. Legend maintains that the red formed when drops of Christ's blood landed on green jasper at the foot of the Cross although bloodstone originated in India long before Christ's birth. Jasper symbolizes God's glory, and splendor, brightness, magnificence, and beauty. It represents the "blood atonement" we have through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the passing over of God’s judgment.

It also represents royalty, prosperity, prestige, and valiance. Just as jasper was known for its highly polished finish, in the same way, we should be known for our high moral standards and the character brought forth in us by obedience to God.

 

In no way does this imply we are sinless!

Just meek enough to recognize our weaknesses and willingness to take the necessary actions.


When you mix blue with the color red you get purple!
When we surrender our life to Jesus the result is a FRAGRANT PRAISE!
2 Corinthians 2:15

For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;  to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life.

“His red blood washes us making us a fragrant Hyacinth praise - an eleventh-hour remnant people!

Hebrews 12:1-2 (NIV) - Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

 

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

I believe God is stressing foundations! He highlighted this to me for a reason!

Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it branched into four headwaters. The name of the first river is Pishon; it winds through the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is pure, and bdellium and onyx are found there.
So in speaking about the lead branch “intimacy” It speaks of developing a relationship with Holy Spirit.

God is revealing to us His SON, our justification which is Christ Jesus and his consuming -pure passion, and love!
It’s in the intimacy we bear His blood and, breath interceding in

 

prayer! 
Ps 34:16

The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

1 Peter 3:12

 "For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

1 John 5:15 - "And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him."

(Only those resting in Eden truly Intercede according to Holy Spirit!)
It’s within that double-edged sword we produce a living scroll.

I pray you are full-grown, mature trees of right standing/ whole, healed, fully restored, standing upright, flexible, bendable, translucent, lightweight fragrant hearts able to frolic in the river of God; recently washed and newly Shorn- that there be no jaggedness to your soul-but that you are smooth, stone, a precious stone, and a hand of the father-in fact, a weapon in his hand!! Holy Spirit fill us today - I pray: The spirit of the Lord, the spirit of wisdom, and understanding the spirit of counsel, and might the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord .

I pray Holy Spirit wash us, shear us !

Hebrews 1:7 we are released as ministers as flame of fire. And of the Angels he saith, He maketh the spirits his messengers, and his ministers a flame of fire Jesus, you were wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon you, and with your stripes, we ARE healed.

Jesus, You paid the price once and for all for our healing, restoration, and deliverance; when you walked this earth you were anointed with the Holy Ghost and with power and you went about doing good,  healing ALL that were oppressed by the devil; for God was with You.

He’s causing us to cry out in our distress !

 

He wants to take us from bitterness to sweetness from dryness to times of refreshing, Into wells of relief. You’re beginning to bear his
traits even in your suffering knowing that in your suffering it produces character and character produces hope.
