 TEACHING [Past posts below]
This Sunday I spoke on 1 verse that Pastor Bil [Church Unlimited] used in his message-
Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
And I tried to fit it in with the verses from the Mass [All copied at the end of this post in the verses section].
The other day when I read the verse- I meditated on how the scripture say’s when the desire comes- IT IS a tree of Life.
In scripture we read about the fall of man in the garden- and how he made the choice to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil [also a type- picture of the law].
When he did- he was banished from the garden- and the Tree of Life.
The story of scripture shows man’s desperate attempt to get ‘back to the garden’- back to the presence of God- and back to the Tree of life.
There are many prophecies- teachings about Jesus as the fulfillment of that promise- he is the desire of all nations- he is the man whose name is ‘the Branch’-
Zechariah 6:12
And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord:
The scripture tells us it was his being cursed on ‘the tree’ [the cross] that paid the penalty of sin for man- and brought man back to God-
Galatians 3:13
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
God promises those who overcome will eat of that tree once again- which is in the paradise of God-
Revelation 2:7
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
Yes- Jesus enabled us to come back to the garden- to have fellowship with God once again.
And it is in this presence of God- even now- that we partake of the Tree of Life- we are now delivered from the curse of the law- we are in the city of God- the Spirit of God- the River of Life is flowing out of this city- even now- and we are here for the healing of the nations-
Revelation 22 [Full Chapter]
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. 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. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: …
Note- I do believe in the literal account of the creation of man in the garden- and it was indeed the sin of man- by disobeying the voice of God [eating the fruit] that brought the penalty of sin on humanity.
The scripture is a living word- and God uses the actual experiences of men- the account of creation- to also teach us spiritual truths.
The were only 2 named trees in the garden [though there were other trees].
These 2 named trees represent the law- and grace.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil was a type of the law-
Romans 3:20
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
The tree of life- is a type of Christ and his Cross- the New Covenant of grace.
The law could never justify a man- it could only reveal to him his sin
And his need of a saviour-
Galatians 2:16
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations
Galatians 3:11
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

Galatians 3:18
For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations
When man repents- and believes that Christ died [on the Cross] and rose again- he is then saved.
He is brought back into a restored relationship with God- and now has true life- life that the law covenant could never give.
Romans 5:19
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. [some sites see here https://corpuschristioutreachministries.blogspot.com/2023/03/sunday-sermon-text_12.html?m=0 ]
