Tree of Life and Christ Ahnsahnghong
The only one thing all men have in common, whether great or small, poor or rich is that at the end of our life we all have to face death. But we choose to forget this fact and try to enjoy life rather than seeking God's salvation.
Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the whole duty of man.
According to the bible our only purpose in life is to keep God's commandment because at the end who is the only one that can give us salvation? Only God, No one else can save us. The origin of death is found in the Garden of Eden and what most people do not know is that our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong also showed us the solution for death can be found in the same Garden of Eden. First of all, we need to see how Jesus Christ spoke 2,000 years ago in order to understand this mystery, the solution for death:
Mt 13:34-35 "Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet:
"I will open my mouth in parables,
I will utter things hidden since
the creation of the world."[a]
Christ always spoke in parables. But a parable is a store with a hidden meaning. Christ said that through his parables He would reveal things that are hidden since the creation of the world. But in the Bible, which book speaks of the creation of the world? Yes, it is the book of Genesis, the first book of the bible. So let us understand about the parable of the Tree of Life among many parables that can be found in the book of Genesis.
Gen 2:16 "And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."
Everybody knows this story. We know Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan and sinned against God by eating from the forbidden fruit. But do you think the tree was poisonous and that's why they came to die? No, it's because God said "If you eat of it you will surely die" then it would happen so. It's the Word of God that has power not the objects that God uses.
So then, this is the origin of death. But even a fraction of a second before Adam and Eve ate from this tree, did they have to face death? They didn't!
They were immortal beings and had eternal life. But then, has God ever given us a solution for death? If there is no solution for this problem, that means we all have to face death!! This is serious. Thanks be to Christ Ahnsahnghong, He showed there is a solution for death in the same Garden of Eden.
Gen 3:20 "And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
In the very same Garden of Eden there was another tree called "The Tree of Life". and even though they sinned against God by eating the forbidden fruit if they ate from this tree, they would regain eternal life. THE TREE OF LIFE IS THE SOLUTION FOR DEATH. But how come Adam and Even didn't eat from it even though they were in the same Garden? Because God Blocked the way (Gen 3:20). And if God blocked the way then can anyone eat from the Tree of life? Impossible.
If this story is true, this means we cannot have eternal life and are destined to die. But how did Jesus Christ speak 2,000 years ago? He spoke in Parables. This is not a real story this is a parable, for this reason we ought to thank God. Because the Tree of Life is the solution for death, but how can we eat from it? What is the reality?
According to Christ only by eating His flesh and blood we can have eternal life through the Passover (Jn 6:53, Mt 26:17,26).
But in the Garden of Eden in order to have eternal life we must eat from the tree of life. Clearly we can understand Jesus Flesh & Blood stands for the Tree of Life in The Garden of Eden. The reality of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden is celebrating the Passover.
Through the Passover we can obtain the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
After Jesus Christ Ascended and all the Apostles as well, the truth started to be changed around and the way to the tree of life was blocked. But Our God is merciful God, and promised to come a second time to bring salvation, the truth of the Passover(Heb 9:28).
Christ Ahnsahnghong came as the Second Coming Christ. He is Second Coming Christ because according to bible prophecy only Second Coming Christ can restore the Passover and Christ Ahnsahnghong was the only one that brought us the truth of the Passover, the way to eat from the Tree of Life.
In the Garden of Eden, who blocked the way to the tree of life? God did, therefore, only God can open it. But if Christ Ahnsahnghong opened the way for us to eat from the Tree of LIfe by bringing back the Passover, this means Christ Ahnsahnghong is the very same God that blocked the way! God Almighty!
Now we can have the true hope for the Kingdom of Heaven by keeping the Passover, the Feast our merciful God Ahnsahnghong brought back. Believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong so that you may too have eternal life and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
