  • Victor on Genesis 3
    two questions:

    1. Genesis 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,

    does this mean tree of life and tree of the knowledge of good and evil are the same?

    2. Genesis 3:5 and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

    how to understand "gods" here?
  • The Two Trees in the Garden of Eden - in Reply on Genesis 3
    One of Jesus's names is the tree of life.

    Eden was protected by an Angel after Adam and Eve were driven out of it.

    If they had eaten of the Tree of Life, they would have lived eternally in their fallen state.

    Search the Book of Revelation. The Tree of Life was moved from earth to Heaven.

    GENESIS 3:22

    And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

    REVELATION 22:2

    In the midst of the street of it (heaven)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.

    GENESIS 3:24

    So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

    REVELATION 2:7

    He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the TREE OF LIFE, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

  • Godhead of the Bible by Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 3
    Hi Victor! You are blessed. You have discovered the first of many Godhead scriptures in the Bible.

    This is proof of the 3 persons consulting with each other, concerning mankind.

    The Father purposes

    The Word (Jesus) speaks. (John 1:1)

    The Spirit (Holy Spirit) executes the spoken word. Action.

    Together, they created everything that we see, know, feel, and are still discovering every day. Through Jesus's cross, we can speak/pray/praise them with the words of our mouth, the meditations of our hearts, and our souls; which came from God. That in scripture He says ALL souls belong to me.

    For me personally, there is no better feeling or knowing, that I belong to God. He is mine and I am His. (Song of Solomon). All we must do is to possess that love with all of our strength. If strength is weakened by daily sin, we have only to call upon God for cleansing, rescue and restoration; salvation. If God is for us, who can be against us?

    Talking to Him is the greatest pleasure I have ever known! With the finished work of the Cross of Christ: I can walk with God as Adam once did in the garden.

    Satan's lies no longer have POWER to distract and destroy our relationship with God. If sin occurs, we have only to confess it and turn away from it. Gods strength is made perfect in our weakness.

    Doubts that God doesn't love or forgive us, are mind bombs from the Devil and his workers of iniquity. Resist it and run straight to the Cross.

    In the Center of creation and Revelation, is the power and victory of the Cross of Jesus: savior and Messiah.

    The Sting of Death cannot touch us anymore. Absent from the body; present with our Lord. In Christ, there is no fear. We step outside of Time, and step into Eternity; in a second.

    Today if we hear Him knocking on the door of our heart: answer the door! Invite Him inside.

    Don't be afraid of the one Person on this planet who loves and accepts you, as is. His blood sacrifice was enough to cleanse.

    M.
