God Created The Tree of Death
In the beginning God gave His instruction, (Torah). You may eat of every kind of tree in the garden but do not eat from the tree of the Knowledge of Good, (Tov) and Bad, (Ra), for in the day you eat it, Death, (Muth) you will Die, (Muth), Genesis 2:17.
The All Knowing declared the end from the beginning, including mankind’s rebellion, death and redemption back to Spiritual Life, Isaiah 46:10.
God Created The Tree of Life
“Then YHVH God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and bad; and now, he might stretch out his hand, and take also from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever“- Genesis 3:22
The Tree of Life existed from the beginning. Why didn’t God allow Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Life? Because death is temporary. Mankind will not remain in the state of death forever.
Only The Victorious Are Granted The Right to Eat From the Tree of Life
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Assemblies. To the one who is Victorious, I will grant the right to eat of the tree of life….” Revelation 2:7
Y’hoshua/Jesus, the promised Seed of the Woman, was promised from the beginning to crush the head of the serpent, (to “crush the head” is an idiom showing Victory over the serpent/death), Genesis 3:15; Romans 16:20; Revelation 1:18.
“And the serpent was enraged at the woman, (YHVH’s assembly) and went to make war with the rest of her children, those who keep the commandments of YHVH and hold to the testimony of Yehoshua…” Revelation 12:17
“Whoever claims to Live in Him (the Victorious One) must walk as He (Yehoshua) walked.” 1 John 2:6
The Good News is Knowing our Eternal, Spiritual Creator, Yehoshua, His Hebrew Name meaning YHVH, (He Is, Was and Always Will Exist), Is Salvation.
What did He Save us from? Our oppression to that Tree of Death.
But death is the last enemy to be destroyed, the rebellious must go through the Lake of Fire, again! (It’s figurative language, fire purifies, but those fiery trials are torment).
