The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life was in the garden of Eden. (Gen. 2:9) It gives life continual. It is also in Heaven doing the same. (Rev. 2:7) God was in the Garden and also in Heaven. He alone is eternal within Himself, we are imparted eternal life in His presence and relationship. There is no life apart from God.
The First Prophet
God said to Abimelek, “Now return the man’s wife, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live. But if you do not return her, you may be sure that you and all who belong to you will die.” (Genesis 20:7) We may not think about Abraham being a Prophet, but he was, as God said.
How Satan Works
“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work…The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:7,9-10, ) The enemy and his representative thwart the law through lies and deception. Those who reject the truth, fall for lawlessness and lies. When there is a breakdown in the Rule of Law, the enemy is at work.
Faith, Fear, and Trust
Do you believe God; that what He promises He will do? How strong is your faith in God? Do you believe He will save you by the blood sacrifice of Jesus and give you a home in Heaven? What about your next meal, the clothes upon your back, and a place to sleep? Do you suffer under a weight of fear and worry? Do you trust God or trust in your own plans and ability? Has God taken care of you until this moment or you have made wise decisions and plans to create your current status? Are you who God says you are or are you the person you decided to become?
Infants bear all the promises of God, in the womb, because they were destined before the creation of the world. “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.” (Ephesians 1:4-6) The ancient wicked abomination of child sacrifice continues today under the name of abortion. It is pagan religion of death and Satan worship, designed to cut off the spring of God’s blessing. When you hear someone lauding the wisdom of modern man, consider this – The highest cause of death in the world is Abortion.
