ADAM, EVE AND TREE OF LIFE April 7, 2008


The traditional interpretation of the story of Adam and Eve is that they disobeyed God by eating the forbidden apple, which is the origin of Original Sin.

We need to remember that there were two trees in the Garden:

“In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”…

And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;  but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.”

Again the big question is why Adam and Eve choose the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I would choose the tree of life.

Adam and Eve ate the apple, and when God realized this, He 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.”

It is obvious that after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil Adam and Eve realize that they are naked. This is definitely one step forward in their evolution. Acquiring the knowledge of good and evil means evolving from animals to human beings. Becoming human was both a blessing and a curse. There was much to be gained from it–as the Serpent said, “your eyes shall be opened”.

How does the story of Adam and Eve ends? Are we still evolving? What is the next step?

Remember what GOD said: “He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

Can we try to taste THE TREE OF LIFE and live forever as promised by Christ?

    May we taste of the tree of life now?
    If we believe that Jesus is the tree of life, as well as the bread of life and the way, the truth and the life [Eternal life]; then we may conclude that His flesh and blood are also the tree of life. I believe this is the significance of communion, the taking of the bread and wine as symbols. As in Acts 2:38, Peter instructed potential converts “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
    The significance of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit makes an interesting Bible Concordance study – beyond the scope of this question.

    Hi Peter;
    I didn’t click on About Peter before I submitted my comment, so I was not aware of your personal interests. I have no expertise in Yoga, but I have learned English grammer quite well and am willing to help you learn it, such as by commenting on your posts and replies; giving a preferred wording, if you like.
    I don’t believe in converting others, but it’s OK to try to answer questions such as you posed.
    Best regards, Mervyn aka mymoss.

    Dear Mymoss,

    The Jesus is part of tree of life but not the entire tree. He is only the first and the last gate. The bread was his body but not the physical one.
    The tree of life is just the instrument for the cool breeze of the Holly Spirit.

    Drinking wine is may be the biggest misunderstanding in Christianity.
    I don’t want to speak about Peter because he was the weakest disciple of Christ, you know why.

    What you mean by word converting. Christ is only the way but not the destination.

    I think that the right spelling is grammar, not grammer.

    Have a nice day.
    🙂

    Good and Evil are concepts which spiritual beings mind dwells
    on for their own purpose,, When Adam And Eve ate from this tree of knowledge they became naked from their spiritual side to the physical side of man,,this happen cause they went and enjoy the knowledge of pleasure of sex/fleshly habbits,, now when their mind take them to this place they understood clearly now that their physical bodies were naked,,because from in the spiritual side of them their is no nakedness but happyness in both body and spirit at the same time,,God\ JAH is showing them there is only one way to happyness when he said ”He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” they sinned to their own pleasure..Jesus now came back to preach and say REPENT from the sins of the WORLD,,Remember their is a spiritual world INSIDE of man diferent from the world OUTSIDE of man,, so this world Jesus is speaking of is of the outside world so it does not interfer with the world which is hidden inside of man to enter that gate of peace which god want us to eat from so badly.. in the name of righteousness.. hit me up at kgangster@hotmail.com

    Jah,

    I agree with you. There is a spiritual world INSIDE and people are not aware about this.

    Why God said “now you have become like us”?

  7. Peter Says:

    Because we are not anymore animals. We are human beings with higher awareness.
