The tree of Life

– Revelation 2:7 –

“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.


– Genesis 2:9 –

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 the knowledge of good and evil.


– Genesis 3:22-24 –
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.”

So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken.

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.

-Leviticus 26:4-13-

-“I will send you rain in it’s season, and the ground will yield it’s crops and the trees of the field their fruit.

Your threshing will continue until grape harvest and the grape harvest will continue until planting, and your will eat all the food you want and live safely in your land.

I will grant Peace in the Land and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid.

I will remove Savage bears from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country.

You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you.

Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you.

I will look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your numbers, and I will keep my covenant with you.

You will still be eating last year’s harvest when you will have to move it out to make room for the new.

I will put my dwelling place among you, and I will not abhor you.

I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.

I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt so that you would no longer be slaves to the Egyptians; I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk with heads held high.”-

What a proclamation.

Tears &; Worship

-C. S. Lewis-

“We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite Joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.

We are far too easily pleased”

“…His {Her} master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!..”
“…You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!…”

-Matthew 25:21, 23-

And not to see death…

“…Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men, because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he [she] does, whether he [she] is slave or free.”

-Ephesians 6:7-8-

The Third Book of Enoch

These recount how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of the archangels, and the immediate attendant on God’s throne.

He was subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfils of his own accord whatever comes out of the mouth of God, executing His decrees.

Much esoteric literature like the 3rd Book of Enoch identifies Enoch as the Metatron, the angel which communicates God’s word.

In consequence, Enoch was seen, by this literature, and the Rabbinic kabbala of Jewish mysticism, as having been the one which communicated God’s revelation to Moses, in particular, the dictator of the Book of Jubilees.

And so the dream and promise of Heaven. Is this as clear to me as the dream and promises of a brand New Car? A bigger TV? A faster phone?

Is Heaven a clear reward for me? What is heaven anyway, is it the gold paving that I yearn for?

Or is there something more to the promise of Heaven, than walls encrusted with Diamond?
