TREE OF LIFE [I]

3 Mins read

Welcome to Healing Nexus.

When you see this topic, it’s the first thing that will likely come to your mind is the precious tree that was planted inside the Garden of Eden.

Don’t forget that there were 2 trees inside the Garden of Eden namely “Tree of Life” and “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”. These two trees represent the way we live our lives as Christians.

The Tree of Life represents our relationship with God and dependency on Him while the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil signifies the “human ability” to know right and wrong (I’m sure you still remember the incidence that occurred after the fall of Adam).

The Tree of Life also requires humans to live by their spirit while the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil requires that men should live by their soul.

After the fall of man, God had to chase Adam away from Eden so that He won’t touch the heart of Eden which is the Tree of Life. Remember also that before the fall of Adam and Eve, both of them were naked and they did not react to any atmospheric condition of the garden, even the Scriptures made us to know that there were four great rivers inside Eden but they never for once complained of either cold or chilled weather. They enjoyed these benefits because they were guided by the spirit (tree of life) but immediately they resolved to being led by their soul, God had to send them away from enjoying the benefit of the Tree of Life. Don’t forget that I mentioned earlier that the heart of the garden is the tree of life.

Genesis 3:24
[24]So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the TREE OF LIFE.
You can see from the above verse that the heart of the garden is “the tree of Life”.

Now that Man had been chased away from Eden, the question we should ask is: where is the Tree of Life?

Revelation 22:1-2
[1]And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
[2]In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

From the above passage, we can see that the tree is in heaven and here is the good news, we, believers, are citizens of the heaven! Shout GLORY!!!
Philippians 3:20 – But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

Here’s another good news; we carry Jesus inside of us and Jesus said He is the tree of Life.

John 15:5
[5]I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Let me do some analysis for you.

What comprises a tree are:

  1. Vine
  2. Branches
  3. Fruits
  4. Leaves

Jesus said I am the Vine, we are the branches, it’s the branches that bear fruits (fruits of the Spirit) but what’s the work of the leaves?

Revelation 22:2
[2]In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the HEALING of the nations (ethnos: nonJewish-Pagans).

So, the implication of this is that we were made to be a solution to the unbelievers’ sickness. The leaves that sprout out from our bond with the vine is not meant for us because we don’t. need it. That’s why Jesus said, “we shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover”.

This knowledge alone is sufficient for you to enter the realm of Divine Health. What are you going to do with this knowledge? You have to confess that I AM FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS, SICKNESS IS NOT MY PORTION! ( Can you demonstrate this at the comment box).
