Knowledge of Good & Evil -Choice Again!

Mankind is still consumed with the knowledge of Good & Evil. In fact more so now after almost 6000 years  than ever before. It is a sign of the last days that knowledge will increase and it is only since the advent of the internet that we now have access to the incredible increase in knowledge. Mankind is awash in the seas of knowledge like Never before and we take it as our Right .

But, as always, this knowledge blinds us to the understanding of the Tree of Life. It is still removed from our access and view. God expelled Adam and Eve from the garden and surrounded the tree of Life with a flaming sword. That was to prevent Adam and Eve from eating it after they had partaken of the Knowledge Tree. So it is today that there is still a flaming sword surrounding Life.

The difference today, of course, is that the Saviour, Messiah has come, 2000 years ago and through His choices he has given us access and permission to the Tree of Life.

But again it comes down to Choice. To gain access to the Life Tree the individual must choose to accept the Way back, which is straight and narrow, restricted to God's commands.

Because the Only path back to the Life Tree is JESUS. And to find Him and follow Him is a choice to do God's commandments. To resist the wide open choices of lies and deceits that the enemy introduced to the One Way, the One Truth; the restricted path.

Always the Lord God has told man: choose Life, chose Blessings, chose My ways.     He Never forces us; WE CHOSE

So while we live in the outside world (from the Garden of Eden) good and evil are mixed, life and death are merged (and certainly not eternal). We live in darkness and light, a shadowed world, a mixture of in and out. Sometimes we access God's truth but then the lies of the enemy intrude and we lose sight of Him again.

We live in a grey mixed world that is becoming increasingly darker. This is the existence that the enemy wanted for us. It reflects his deception, which started with Adam and Eve's fatal choice. It is the default we come into just be being born, outside the Garden. We are trapped in the enemy's lie that God would withhold vital and valuable knowledge from us. Which of course he did, but for our benefit, because it would rob us of being in his presence, surrounded by His love and perfect life for us. Which it did.

So we live outside the Garden in a world consumed with the knowledge of good and evil - a horrible mix.

But there is a way back through Jesus, to eat again of the Life Tree. But as its access was lost though the exercise of Choice so it is gained again by the exercise of Choice.

         

John 8:12 I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

Matt 7 13-14 Enter though the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter though it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.

John14:6 I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me

John 14:21 Whosoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me . He who loves me will be loved by my Father and I too will love him and show myself to him

Rev 21; 6 .....to him that is thirsty I will give him to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life

Rev 22;14 Blessed are those who have washed their robes, that they may have the right to the Tree of Life and may go through the gates into the city.

Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood
