Tree of Life and Christ Ahnsahnghong
All mankind is mourning in the agony of death. Why has mankind come to die? What is the secret for mankind to live for ever? Death is a problem to all people in this earth, Can we find a solution to this problem?, Where is a problem, there is a solution. Then if we have a solution to death we most find it out where? and what? is the solution to don't face death.
Let's take a look at Jesus teachings on this.
Mat.13.34-35:34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. 35 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.”
Jesus tell us that has been secrets since the creation of the world but He will revealed it to us. Through the book of Genesis we can find this secret that Christ want to let us know.
We know that God put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to work and take care of it but also God command them to don't eat from the Tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Gen.2.16-17: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;17 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.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God broking His commandment as a result they became to face death. Adam and Eve were tempted by the serpent (Satan), and ate from the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil. Then, is there a way for a sinner a mortal men to live for ever? No. The history of death originated in the Garden of Eden, so the secret of Eternal life is in Eden, too. Let's find the secret in the Garden of Eden.
Gen.3.22-24: 22 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 for ever.23 So the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.24 After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
At that time, Adam and Eve were sinners who came to die because of the Tree of knowledge of good and evil. However, even sinners could live forever if they ate from the Tree of Life, but Adam and Eve could not eat from the Tree of Life. God forbade Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Life blocking the way by placing cherubim and a flaming sword.
The bible testified the Old Testament is a shadow and the New testament is the Reality. The Tree of Life in Genesis in the Old Testament is a parable. Jesus said that He will revealed the secrets since the Creation so lets see, What is the reality of the Tree of Life in the New testament.
Jn.6.53-54: 53 Jesus said to them, I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
We should eat from the Tree of Life in the Old Testament to have Eternal Life, but this is not a real tree where we can eat from, the reality we can find it in Christ.
Jesus said if we eat His Flesh and Blood we can have Eternal Life, now we clearly understand that the reality of the Tree of Life in the Old testament is Jesus Flesh and Blood in the New Testament.
How can We eat Jesus Flesh and Blood?
Mat.26.17-19:On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover? 18 He replied, Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.'19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Jesus Himself direct His disciples to prepare the Passover. And He kept the Passover with them.
Mat.26.26-28: While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is my body. 27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, Drink from it, all of you.
28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Jesus said that the Bread of Passover is His Body and the Passover wine His Blood. Jesus Flesh and Blood is the reality of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. The Passover is the ceremony to eat from the tree of life. So, we, sinners, can have Eternal Life by keeping the Passover.
Let's take a look at the Garden of Eden one more time. God forbade sinners from the Garden of Eden so sinners were not able to eat from the tree of Life in Eden. Then only God can allow sinners to eat from the Tree of Life and live for ever.
Jesus came to this Earth to give us Eternal Life, He bring the Tree of Life in the Garden on Eden and give us Eternal Life.
Jn.10.10: The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Jesus came to this earth to give us Eternal Life, We became to die because of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil. But we can have Eternal Life by eating the Tree of Life in Eden. Jesus God Almighty open the way for us to eat from the Tree of Life by keeping Passover which the reality of the Tree of Life in Eden.
But in this time people don't celebrated Passover, that is because the devil abolish the Passover in 325 AD. Then no one can be saved without the Passover the reality of the Tree of Life. This is the reason of Second coming Christ God Almighty come to this earth again with the only purpose to saved us.
Heb.9.28: so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Christ come a Second Time only for our Salvation. All mankind were destined to die because of the Tree of knowledge of good and evil, Second coming Christ as a prophecy came to this Earth ones again to give us Eternal Life through the Passover the reality of the Tree of Life in Eden. Christ Ahnsahnghong our savior in this age of the Holy Spirit bring Passover, only World Mission Society Church of God keep Passover and it is because true God Almighty duels in.
Let's believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong and enter to Kingdom of Heaven.
