DO YOU WANT THE ETERNAL LIFE THAT WAS INTENDED FOR YOU? Then Eat from the Tree of Life!
Did you know that eternal life was part of God’s intended plan for you from the beginning? Jeremiah 29:11″For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope”
You can have eternal life through faith (trust, believe, hope, love) in Jesus Christ. You see it all started in the Garden of Eden when Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Today, our “knowledge and education” is what keeps us from truly understanding God’s ways. It was God’s intention for us to live and fellowship with Him in love, peace and happiness for all time in the Garden of Eden. Why do you think God made a Tree of Life, He did not need it, so He created it for man, knowing that He made us out of dirt, clay and stuff He had lying around. LOL
Genesis 3:22″And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” 24 “After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life”
Proverbs 3:18″wisdom She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed”
Proverbs 13:12″Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life”
Revelations 2:7 “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is VICTORIOUS, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God”
God made the Tree of Life for man to be able to live forever. When we sinned by DISOBEYING God, we lost the Garden of Eden and the Tree of Life. But God gives us Wisdom in His Torah/Holy Bible that provides us a guide-book on living in a way that is pleasing to God. The bible tells us to help other people, tell the truth, work hard for your food, do not steal, do not commit adultery, respect each other’s possessions. and gives us detailed instructions on how to live obediently. God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to be an example of the bible (Word of God) so we can see how to live an obedient life through faith and love for God and create in us a desire to want to be more like Him. To honor God with our lives in humility so that we bring God all the honor, glory and praise. When we couple wisdom with the Hope found in Jesus (Yeshua), we can be victorious and eat from the Tree of Life.
OBEDIENCE TO GOD (Elohim, YHWH, Yahweh) THROUGH OUR FAITH IN CHRIST LEADS TO LIFE EVERLASTING.
