As you have seen, the elements that make up the Garden of Eden story can be telling us much more than the traditional story presented like a fairy tale. In the same way, the results from this redefined story also gives us more to consider. While it is true that this fall separated the spiritual relationship between man from God, this separation also manifested itself on the physical plane as well. This is what we are going to understand next.
"That which is has already been, and what is to be has already been: and God requires an account of what is past"
The implication from this scripture tells us that God in his domain is outside of linear time. From his perspective, all of mankind's history on the linear plane is already finished! It is not that God simply contemplates what he is going to do, it has already been done. This is why the Bible's recorded prophecies are 100% accurate. It is actually the entire recorded history of mankind from beginning
to end. As you project this idea further you are left with the realization that if God's domain exists outside of linear time and is complete within itself, then we who are are in this earthly plane are separated by time as well as space from the eternal realm: heaven. This would be the definition for a dimension. If both are existing simultaneously , Heaven and Earth are actually parallel dimensions!
This idea is even strengthened by the words of Jesus. As Jesus stood before Pilot at his trial, He was asked if he were a King. A baited question Jesus answered very carefully,
" My Kingdom is not of this earth..."
Jesus was not proclaiming himself to be an alien! The Greek word "Kosmos" for our English word world, literally means the ordered arrangement of this entire material universe! That my dear reader is the description of a dimension. Jesus was saying that HIS KINGDOM was not of this DIMENSION!
Missing the mark is a mid-evil archery definition for a once commonly used word, "SIN". Today the word sin is associated with judgment on a persons moral character. This however is inaccurate from the original intention. To miss the mark is to help define the concept of parallel dimensions. The Bible says that we, (everyone who is a resident on this linear earth) have missed the mark and that we will receive the reward of that missed mark, death. (Romans 3:23) It has nothing to do with our moral character because entrance into God's dimension does not depend upon an individuals actions.( Eph 2:8) This term was used in describing that fact that we are all a part of this second rate fallen dimension. Because of that, we are destined to follow and live by this dimensions standards. We in our own strength, and good intensions cannot find a way out. We are helpless to escape. Events in the Garden of Eden created a literal paradox by one man, Adam, that literally put a rip into the space time continuum. It is only logical then to realize that the same but opposite of the Eden event would have to happen to undo this paradox. It is also logical to realize that only one person could
accomplish that for the rest of us and that would be God himself. Only the creator would have the kind of power to overrule time and space.
At the end of the movie Armagagedon, the hero made a decision to sacrifice his own life in order to save the rest of the world from an oncoming comet. Mission accomplished! He dies but the whole earth is saved. Anyone would realize that this man would be immortalized and honored forever for such valor and personal sacrifice. That is exactly what Jesus the Messiah did for us and yet the world scoffs in unbelief and settles for every other alternative. Sin means to miss the mark. That Mark is God's perfect kingdom and his ways, existing in the eternal realm and translated out as the tree of Life. Adam and Eve chose the other tree, The tree of knowledge translated into lesser dimension. We are were stuck in this dimension until God himself came and undid the paradox at Calvary. We will next see that blood was a part of getting us into this mess and another blood would get us out.
