  • WHAT GOD LIKES ABOUT USMishael - in Reply on James 1:2
    Please study these comments yourself in Genesis.

    There were 2 Trees in the Garden of Eden.

    Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

    Their spiritual connection to God was severed. Jesus eventually came to restore that connection to His born again Believers.

    The Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) discussed together how to protect the Tree of Life. If Adam and Eve ate of that one, they would live forever in a sinful state.

    The Garden was protected and Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden.

    Later, you will see that God had moved the Tree of Life to Heaven.

    As far as I know, no archaeologists have ever dug down and found the remains of the Garden of Eden. Most humans have a conscience about good and evil, even if some choose to be contrary.

    Revelation 22

    1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

    2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the TREE OF LIFE, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the NATIONS.

    3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

    Comment: some scholars believe that we'll need the leaves for illnesses and physical deformities, but I don't think so. We'll obtain our new transformed bodies in the clouds with Jesus during the Rapture.

    My guess would be for the diversity of people going to heaven; like races, cultures.

    When you view the diversity of nature and animals, birds, etc. It makes sense to me that the Lord would desire the diversity of humans. Who wants to look at one color, one race, one kind of music, one kind of cuisine, etc. Who wants to eat Cheerios every day for a thousand years? Do you see my thoughts?

    Heaven, my friends, is going to be FUN!!

    Wrap your head around that ok.

    Study what God likes.
