The Next Forbidden Tree

The Lord God said, “The man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. And now, he might reach out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”

Genesis 3:22 — Modern English Version (Thinline Edition.; Lake Mary, FL: Passio, 2014)

After the fall, God set aside access to another tree. It was the tree of life that was now forbidden. Again, as we have seen previously, maybe it is the enemy that wants us to think God is keeping something from us.

It’s not so. He doesn’t keep good things from us.

Had Adam and Eve partook of that tree of life they would indeed live forever. It wouldn’t be a good thing for them or us. We would have remained corrupted.

God has a better plan. That would be the Offspring to bruise the head of the serpent. As the prophet Daniel would reveal, He (this Offspring) would make an end of sin. Corruption would be no more.

His Way is how and why we must be saved. To put off this body of corruption, and be raised anew incorruptible.
