Are you eating from ‘ TREE OF LIFE’ or ‘THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL’, as many thought there were two real tree like oak, fig etc, no these are the symbols which used to represent the very form of something, let us see from the word of God.
Proverb:3:18: She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
Proverb:11:30: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
Proverb:13:12: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
Proverb:15:4: A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
Here are some good explanations of tree of Life, means a good things (spiritual acts) represent the fruit of tree of life, and the Tree of Knowledge of good and Evil, this is opposite of it, the worldly things (carnal mind acts), the reason faculty, to discern good from evil as it states, but the righteousness comes with faith not discerning good and evil. The same thing (to beguiled EVE by serpent) which happened in The Garden of Aden is still happening, but today here is not any serpent to beguiled us, but this is our mind (the carnal mind).
2Co:11:3: But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds (See it) should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
In actual devil uses the branch which is in us called the branch of the knowledge of good and evil, to beguiled us, by having this branch of good and evil our mind has been corrupted and the simplicity which is in Christ, we nolonger can see until we dont directed toward that, for being directed we must have the Spiritual Mind.
This fight continues until a man don’t received the Holy Spirit (The Mind of Christ)
1Co:2:12: Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
1Co:2:16: For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
When this spirit of God (The Mind of Christ) will come and replace the old knowledge the knowledge of good and evil, you will be like Christ’s because the Bride Resembles with Christ.
Eph:5:27: That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Eph:5:29: For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
Eph:5:32: This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
The bride should be Holy and Blemish, for being so what a person should do, He must bypass the knowledge of Good and Evil which he possesses, means He should start to eat from the Tree of Life, so that he can live forever.
The Question is how a person can eat from The Tree of Life, let us see what word of God says about it.
Joh:6:63: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
The word is life, the tree of life is Lord Jesus Christ, from whom we eat, we can eat his words, we must visit this tree and bypass the knowledge which we have, whether you think how it is possible, this is the carnal mind thought, the words which have been said, these are the tree of life, as they the two disciples who met Christ. What these disciples felt, they said to one another..
Lu:24:32: And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?
This is way to eat from tree of life, so by pass all the thoughts which comes from carnal mind, and try to eat from tree of Life so that you may exercise spirit mind as the mind of Christ. When a man eaths from The Tree of Life, He feels the hotness in their heart, and filled with uncounted joy. The joy which a carnal mind never arrange and exercise but a Spiritual Mind person can enjoy it.
