God’s Original Intent

God’s Original Intent… In the Beginning

In the beginning we see the Father heart of God, His will and original intent. In the beginning Genesis tells us that God created everything and it was GOOD. He spoke and into being things were formed. His word carried a sound, a vibration, a frequency, an expression of energy. When God created the animals, the plants and Adam and Eve, He formed them with His word and breathed His intelligence into them. The plants have the DNA of God, so did Adam and Eve. They were perfectly created. Everything God created in the beginning carried life giving sustenance.

This thrills me because everything God created in the Garden was breathed on by God, not man! Everything we need is found in the Garden. God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.” (Gen. 1:29)

In the beginning, there was no artificial sweeteners, no chemicals, no additives, no preservatives, no over the counter drugs. These items are man made and have no benefit. God created plants, food, and the medicines used were essential oils found in the plants. Wow!!! When I read God’s word I realize how far removed we (if I may say so, the majority of Americans) have gotten, from His creation, His original intent.

God's original intent

Ezekiel 47:12 states, “On the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. …Their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing.”  Similarly in Revelation 22:2 we read, “The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.”

When Adam and Eve sinned, sin entered the world- however, the story does NOT end there! Jesus came as the LAST Adam! He came to seek and to save “that which was lost.”  What was lost?  God’s original plan in the Garden, when Adam and Eve were tempted and sinned. The good news is that Jesus has come to RESTORE, REDEEM, HEAL, MEND, REPAIR, all that was lost! When He died on the cross, He died for it all. He said, “It is Finished!”  The victory, the battle has been won, now it is our job to come into alignment with heaven and walk accordingly.  This is the part we have to get revelation of.  It is our THOUGHTS, our SOUL (mind, will and emotions), our HEART that needs to change and come in alignment with God’s word.

I believe we are living in days where the “times of restoration of all things” (Acts 3:21) are at the top of heaven’s agenda. That is God’s heart, God’s will, God’s original intent.  His will is “on earth as it is in heaven.” He is making it very clear to those who will listen. 

Acts 3:19-21 says, “Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.” This literally means that Jesus Christ is “retained” in the heavens “until” there is a restoration of all things on the earth. Restoration of what? The restoration of God’s original plan and intent for His people on the earth. God’s original purpose for Adam was to be a carrier of the fullness of His glory, to be an ambassador of the kingdom of heaven and to bring heaven to earth daily.

I believe God is drawing us back to the GardenHis Original Intent

Many people are changing the way they eat, and it is because of God’s revelation being poured out on the earth. God has given us fruits and vegetables that provide nutrients that we need. God provided healing essential oils in the Garden and we read about them all throughout Scripture and throughout history as mankind’s first medicine.

I want to eat off the land and drink from His living water and the wellsprings of drinking water and use plant based, God made oils for medicine. I believe God’s heart for me is restoration of all things. I believe He sent His son Jesus to die for me, so that I can be free, healed, and whole. I want to continue to cleanse and purify my temple. I want to cleanse my thoughts, my heart, my soul. I want to make myself ready for my KING! Would you share with me your thoughts? Do you desire to eat pure, whole, raw foods that are best for your temple? Do you desire to use God’s creation oils? Won’t you join me on this journey.

Thanks Rebecca for hosting! Love your blog!

No doubt about it – we have strayed so far from God’s original intent. We are paying a high price for it too. I’m looking forward to the day He restores everything as it was in the beginning. I’m looking forward to that new heaven and new earth the Bible describes.


Carrie Raab May 4, 2012 at 3:43 am

Hey Charlotte! Amen! We have strayed, for sure, but it is not too late to turn back.. praise God for His tender mercies! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your feedback. I so appreciate it. Heaven… I can only imagine! One day! Blessings to you too!

Carrie –
I’ve just begun looking into essential oils for treatment of various ailments (primarily allergies and asthma)
Thanks for the reminder to get back to God’s basics!

Great to see you over at Saints and Scripture Sundays again!


Carrie Raab May 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Hey Dianna! You are very welcome! They are life changing! Not all essential oils are the true essence of the plant- do your research- as most oils are adulterated with chemicals and fillers. The bottle will not say that, b/c of FDA rules. Here to help if I can. I am glad the Lord is speaking to you about His healing oils! Love it! Blessings to you and thanks for stopping by :)

Thank you for this great post, which I found through Inspire Me Monday. I agree with what you say. Hopefully we can get back to more of the natural foods and healing products God has provided for us to nurture and care for our bodies and increase our faith in Jesus to nurture our spirits, minds and hearts!


Carrie Raab May 4, 2012 at 3:44 am

Amen Connie! I so agree! Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your comments. Blessings

Interesting. My sister is really into using oils instead of medicines. I’ve tried some for migraines but haven’t had much luck. I love how you tied the verses into going back to natural living.


Carrie Raab May 13, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Thanks Shanda! The oils are mankinds first medicine and when you use therapeutic grade/medicinal healing oils, they work. I am not sure what you tried, but I am confident Young Living Oils will help your migraines! Thanks for stopping by and your wonderful feedback.
