Secrets from the Garden of Eden
Y’shua said to search the Scriptures, for they tell of Him!
Indirectly I happened on a secret I have not yet heard, as I dwell in the Word~ I have been searching for a natural herb to activate my ” hypo” thyroid ; gentian bitters, oats, greens, kelp all help to warm me up! An MD recommended “guggul”. When “googled”, guggul becomes also bdellium or bedolach, which happens to also be not only in the Sriptures but is also Hebrew! Bedolach was in the Scriptures, in Numbers and Genesis; also it may be myrrh, amber and pearl in the Scriptures.
All can be relative : our inactive, low energized, cold , dead lives can be brought to life! Through the works of Y’shua . as the Separate One,we are separated through His Spirit, in His Blood, giving us Life Eternal in Him! I am ‘warm’ in Him, as He fills me with oil and keeps me lit!
Here is a verse in which bedolach or bdellium appears: note that manna is like coriander seed, with stripes:
“The manna [bread from Heaven~Y’shua] by the WAY, was like coriander seed [with stripes!] & WHITE like gum resin [bedolach] [from bdellium shrub] (Numbers 11:7)”!
The second verse with bedolach is found in Genesis! The river of life in the Garden of Eden divided into 4 streams: one stream, Pishon * winds through Havilah, land of gold, with this bedolach and onyx stone [Genesis 2:10-12]!
Points to note:
- Bedolach implies bitter and separated, symbolic of Y’shua, who went through bitterness of Isaiah 53 for us, to make us separated and holy, as He is the Separate-One, Holy One of Yisrael!
- Pishon *the river, in Hebrew = dispersive~ the Gospel , the Good News, has been dispersed to the 4 corners of the world; the 12 tribes of Yisrael have been dispersed to the 4 corners of the earth, sent out as Adam & Eve were sent out from the Garden! The rachamim or unmerited favors of Yahweh have been dispersed through the blood of Y’shua! The rivers of Living Waters have been dispersed by the Holy Spirit, giving us fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, faithfulness, patience, kindness, goodness, humility, self control!
- Havilah, land west of Ural, in Hebrew , Chavilah = circular! similar to chiyl, to twist or whirl, to dance to writhe in pain or fear, to bring forth, calve, grieve sorrow, stay, tarry, BE WOUNDED!
- The Pishon winds or dances through Havilah, the circular or circuit ~ Galilee, Galil, galiyl= circle~ Y’shua ministered mostly in Galilee, started His ministry there [Mt. 2:22] and finished there in Galilee[Mt. 28:16]!
- We dance rejoicing in the joy of Salvation brought through tears, sweat and blood of Y’shua! We have been birthed, born again out of the bitter pain of the execution torture at Golgotha of Y’shua, King of the Yahudim![Luke 23:38]
Bedolach is aromatic & white~ holy, gummy resin or sap of a tree! A tree refers to a shoot from the ” Root of Yishai/ Jesse and The Branch, the Netzer, as in Isaiah 11: 1, upon which the 7 Spirits of Yahweh rest ; also the tree upon which they hung Y’shua for our sin! Aromatic oils of Bedolach were used as myrhh, both bitter to taste, but sweet in fragrance.
Now we have not only stripped corriander but white aromatic gummy resin! Why?
Bedolach is a white ~ holy, aromatic gummy resin, tapped, or exudes as the juice or fruit sap of the bdellium shrub tree! Y’shua, by hung on a tree, makes us holy; we will be wearing fine white linen as His Bride, we who believe in Him as Savior and Messiah and Yahweh! He is the Firstfruits and we are the fruit of His Vine, as long as we remain in Him
- Aromatic: having an aroma; fragrant!
- “..like a column of smoke [prayers of the altar of incense] perfumed with myrrh and frankincense…”~ Song of Songs 3:6 Our prayers are as smoke of incense reaching up to Heaven!
My sister, My Bride, is a GARDEN locked up, a pool COVERED over, a SPRING sealed shut. You are an orchard that puts forth pomegranates and other precious fruits, henna & [spike]-nard–saffron and aromatic cane, cinnamon & all kinds of frankincense trees, MYRRH, aloes, all the BEST spices. [Song of Songs 4:13-14]
We are to be fragrant as well as holy, separated unto Yahweh, covered by the blood of Y’shua, a spring of living waters sealed shut, awaiting our Bridegroom.
Your [Y’shua’s] anointing oils have a wonderful fragrance; Your Name is like anointing oil poured out! ~Song of Songs 1:3
- “…I will get myself to the mountain of myrrh to the hill of frankincense.”~ SOS 4:6
Bedolach, #916 Strong’s Concordance =”something in pieces“; could be in other verses “amber” or “pearl” used often to describe the appearance of the throne and gates in Heaven! Seems when this white gum resin dries, it turns dark brown and clumpy, as exposed to the environment! When we expose our selves to this world, we become ‘dirty’ and dusty and dry, without the Waters of Living Word, and must wipe the dust off our feet, after travel!
Bedolach =Bdellium, an aromatic but bitter gum resin, similar to “myrrh”
or “mor”, bitter! Miryam, or Mary, Y’shua’s mother’s name derives from same root mar or bitter as myrrh, an oil spice applied to Y’shua’s body and given to him as a gift when young.[Mt 2:11]
Bedolach is probably from #914 SC, “ba-dal”: to divide; divided, severed, separated!
**”But thanks be to Elohim, who in the Messiah constantly leads us in a triumphal procession & THROUGH US spreads everywhere the fragrance of what it means to KNOW HIM! For to Elohim we are the AROMA of the Messiah, both among those being saved and among those being lost; to the latter, we are the SMELL of death leading only to more death; but to the former, we are the sweet smell of LIFE leading to MORE LIFE. [1 Corinthians 14-17]”!**
PRAYER: May we be a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, one that pleases Elohim well. May our Elohim fill every need of ours according to His glorious wealth, IN UNION WITH THE MESSIAH Y’SHUA! And to Elohim be the glory forever and ever. Ahmein!
SPIKENARD: “…sends forth the smell…”~SOS 1:12; ‘very precious ointment’, Mark 14:3; Mary wiped the feet of Y’shua with a pound of ointment of spikenard, John 12:3
