    Word,I have given more thought to your comment about the trees. John 3:8 "For the devil sinneth from the beginning"You said Satan IS the tree of knowledge of good and evil. When does Satan do good? In the garden; if Eve did NOT eat (as you claim) fruit of the tree of knowlege good and evil, of which God told her not to do.What was the deception that Eve succumbed to that caused our sinful state?

    Henry's j verses 8 and 9 and on is speaking of a tree in the garden of God and its the garden of Eden and the tree is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, yes that old serpent the devil. Gods children in scripture are called many times the trees, cedar trees of Lebanon and that's the mighty heathen Satan who is being spoken of.
  • Word
    Jennifer yes history was Neb king of Babylon and 9 chapter of the Babylon war were history but God has showed us a type of antichrist coming in the future that won't be old Neb but Satan the king of Babylon of the Book of Revelation. Don't worry he comes in peace and prosperity and the whole world is taken into the deception and worship him. Preachers priest of this generation let the sheep down.

    If you continue reading through the next chapter you will find the answer (chapter 32 verse 11). It is Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, and his armies.
