In Genesis 2: 8 -10 we read the following:
And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Cast your mind back to the Garden of Eden.
Do you see Eve looking up and desiring the forbidden fruit? Do you see Adam taking the forbidden fruit and pressing it to his lips and devouring the last poisonous morsel as the sweet liquid drips from his chin?
The First Adam looked up at a tree and he desired the forbidden fruit!
The Second Adam, Yeshua Ha-Machiach, aka Jesus the Christ, looks down from a dead lifeless tree and what is it that he desires?
He desires YOU!
Think about it. The Sin Bearer has reopened the pathway to eternity.
Let’s remind ourselves again what Eden means.
Ayin – to experience or see.
Dalet – a doorway that leads to a pathway
Noon – Life and Activity.
The doorway to life that was west of the Garden in a mysterious place called Eden was reopened by Jesus Christ.
You can now experience EDEN.
The first Adam did not spiritually die when he looked at the fruit. He died when he took the fruit and ate of it.
The Second Adam, Jesus the Christ, invites us to Look and Live. We are commanded to Repent of all our sin including all our human-based hopes for salvation. We are invited to cast ourselves upon the only Hope for redemption and deliverance from the wrath of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
We all died because of an event that happened in front of a tree in the Garden of Eden. A name that means "the Pathway to Eternal Life."
We can now live eternally because of an event that happened on a Tree. We can humbly put our trust in Yeshua who is the Living Door that leads to Eternal Life.
Enter through the doorway that leads to life!
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.
