Truth is a river flowing from the throne of God. Walking in this river, one truth leads to another. Truth brings life. Deception brings death. Truth is that tree of life which Adam abandoned in the garden, preferring the tree of knowledge. Knowledge on its own is not life. But when knowledge of the Scripture enters our spirit as revelation, it is life. It is this ‘life’ that heals sickness, casts out demons, and gives it’s possessor in dominion on this Earth.
There are two trees in Eden. The tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Adam gets distracted from the unlimited abundance available to him, and temptation draws him to the singular small thing God has forbidden. The devil draws Adam’s fascination to the forbidden tree. So, he eats from the tree of death.
Accumulating knowledge is not the gaining of ‘life’. LIFE comes from the Word of God. We receive a ‘knowing’ in our spirit, rather than knowledge in the mind. The ‘tree of life’ is the Word and the Spirit.
John 6:63 The words that I speak to you are Spirit, and they are life.
All the branches of the Kingdom of God spring from this tree. Salvation, new life, freedom, healing, and prosperity flow from this tree.
Revelation 2:7 To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”’
Every day we get to eat from this tree of life. When we feed on the Word of God, our spirit receives revelation. This is a transforming power, changing us into the image of Christ. Living in the Word of God brings us faith and the power to overcome. It is overcomers who get to eat from this tree.
