One reason I believe that the Garden of Eden is still on the earth is that we read in Genesis 3 that God stationed guardian cherubim or angels. When reading Revelation 9, there is mention made of releasing the four angels who were stationed ?at the great river Euphrates.? I think this is a reference to the guardian cherubim stationed at the Garden of Eden. Along with this passage, I would refer to Joel 2 where a similar understanding is given. In Joel, it speaks of blowing a trumpet to announce the coming wrath of God?s army that is mounted on horses and that ?Before them fire devours, behind them a flame blazes. Before them the land is like the garden of Eden, behind them, a desert waste?nothing escapes them.? Joel and Revelation are very similar and I believe both of them point to the release of the angels stationed at the Garden of Eden. The angels were to execute God?s judgment?death?upon any who tried to gain access to the Garden and the tree of life. It appears that they will also have a hand in executing God?s final judgment in the ?day of the Lord.? There is also no mention anywhere in Scripture of the Garden ever being destroyed or ?moved? to heaven.
LQQK I hope this helps ==========================================And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; 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 also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. (Genesis 2:7-15 KJV)
