The Wood of Life
Let's see the messages of the
Lord emerging from the symbolic Wood of
Chapter 3: 1,6.
1 Now the serpent was craftier than any beast of the field, which the Lord
God had made. And he said to the woman, indeed has God said, you shall not eat
from any tree of the garden?
2 And the
woman said to the serpent, from the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat.
But from the fruit of the tree, which is in the middle of the garden, God has
said, you shall not eat from it or touch it, lest you die.
serpent said to the woman, you surely should not die. For God knows that in the
day eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good
6 When the woman saw that
the tree was good for food, and that it was delight to the eyes, and that the
tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she
gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
At first we must notice something. Obviously, the holy message says not only God, but the Devil has access to human
"speaks" to human and the Devil does as well! Something that constitutes a very
special key to understand the Bible. God
and the Devil "speaks" indirectly to human, therefore God and the Devil affect humans, and
therefore again, God
is not the only One Who "speaks" through the Bible, while the Devil also
speaks through the evil human's interests, and so affects human activities and writings as well. Therefore the entire
writings of the Bible is not inspired only by God. The Holy Creator did not inspire
the whole writings of the Bible.
All the writings of the Bible do not express
the Word of God, do not express His Will. Therefore, all those
terrible and very socking indeed crimes they committed, see Joshua, Judges, Samuel,
Kings, etc, blood, blood, hate, hate, a lot of blood and barbarity, which as
they wrote God ordered them to act and commit, it was not our Lord at all, but
Satan. They were obeying to Satan, not to the Lord. "According
the word of the Lord" they said; they were mentioning
the name of the Lord, but through their evil interests were serving Satan and were obedient to Satan.
a parenthesis I have to notice something else. Obviously the Satan or
"the deep things of Satan" go too far! Τhe Lord
spoke about the "deep things of Satan" referring by
deeper meaning into those "deep things of Satan" in the book of Revelation, 2:24. It seems the Satan for very
complicated reasons, the entire of which is unknown to us, he has rights
everywhere. Even in the writings of the inspired by God Prophets and Apostles.
Yes, even there! Very logical I consider from the beginning of
the creation, there was a non stopping and hard war between the powers of Good
and powers of Bad. Namely, between of Omniscient Creator to Whom the intention
is the creation of endless and happy life, according to His holy outlines, and
the Satan who wants to destroy them, and destroy the life itself.
It is rather obviously,
there are from both sides very complicated plans, both contrary rights,
strategies, retreats, cessions...
God "goes" somewhere, the Satan goes too. Namely, God speaks indirectly to the
Human, the Satan speaks too. The Satan is enforced to cede something, God does
somewhere the same. God writes through His people His laws and teachings to the
people, there, very closed, almost together, the Satan through his people would
write his evil things, and his barbarous laws as well, mixing them up with God's
Even worst, it seems in some cases he does it, and through the circumstantial ignorance of
the time. Through even God's people themselves, while they had the same knowledge in
their time as well. The Satan uses their ignorance, due to the circumstances,
historic data, (as for example, the writer of the Gospel, Luke, who also
was a historian and doctor as well, he was based on the archives of Israel, to
write the genealogy of the nation in the Gospel, which
according to that time knowledge and perceptions, it was registered from
Israel's officials to count from Adam and Eve. But what a circumstantial
ignorance of the time, this genealogy of human was only a few thousand years old!!) to write
things by further intention to provoke ironical laughter, big confusion and unfaithfulness,
especially in time of great knowledge and transparency. As it happens in our
For example, at that time people believed the sky was firmament, and a cover of
the earth. The stars were lamps, the earth was based on foundations etc. Natural
for that time. But when the inspired by God Prophets and Apostles write the
Truth of God, and in their language use words and phrases like; "firmament/sky",
or foundations of earth, or "the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the a fig
tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind", (we understand it, as an allegorical language) and a lot of other
words and phrases that express the knowledge and ignorance of the time, the "very smart"
especially people of our time would say; well, if those people were inspired by
God, why then they didn't know and those basic truths? Why God did not reveal to
them and these things?
The same applies and for
many other social conditions, as the slavery, the circumstantial depreciation of the woman,
for which both slavery and depreciation, people thought it was God's will, the
"original sin" which is only referrable and symbolical, but even
in our time people accepted it as literal, the crimes and slaughters of babies and
mothers, for which
they though occurred by God's will and order, etc. All these and many more
paradox and illogical serve
the Satan, they build the Tower of Babel, while provoking confusion and unfaithfulness.
So the Satan always has his rights, which mostly were offered to him by the
people, while acting according to his spirit. And the Most High of justice does
not deny his rights.
But again, all these do not serve
only the Satan, at least not all of them, because the most Wise Creator has His
plans and strategies too, which some times even the Devil himself is enforced or
trapped to serve... At the End, the enemy justly is going to be
defeated, and justly will be destroyed by his own injustice and rights, which he demands.
The Lord is going to be the only
Victorious, and victory of the
Lord, it means victory of life. Glory, love and faith to the Lord! These words as a parenthesis.
see further. We read about an
interested discussion between of a snake and a woman,
something that only allegorical could be interpreted.
literal snake would speak of course, although the symbolic reptile speaks slyly
as usual every day into our minds. Animals never spoke the
human language, some thing like this belongs to the sphere of imaginary
allegorical mythology. So this discussion is comparative
(comparison) and speaks allegorical language. It is like a
tale, like "once upon a time", or for example, like the referring tale of the
fox and grapes of Aesop's collection! It is a comparison that speaks indirectly,
it says one thing but it means some other. It is a reference into the inner
condition of every one's soul! And obviously, this
referring discussion is based in mythological
traditions connected with the fantastic paradise, in which "existed" the tree of
the god-snake, the god-snake himself and the other good gods as well.
According to some tribes wish
for immortal life, there was also the vivifying tree of some good god, from
which if the first created ate, they would live forever, and
all the other people as well. It was about fantastic
nice stories and wishes of immortality that have been modified, and used allegorical
in order to pass divine messages.
As I said in the previous subject, Moses used the
deified snake to be the symbol of the Devil. And
of course, the Devil does not
show his sinister face, does not
speak directly. He speaks creeping, (he is the creeping mind of the creation), speaks
deceiving in the spirit of the human, man or woman, using promises of great life, convincing to break the laws of God,
and acting unjustly and criminally. So simply, the symbolic
reptile, the Darkness, was speaking silently
and slyly into
the soul of Adam, into the soul of human, as he does
every moment. It is
written, when they ate from the fruit of the prohibited tree, (taboo tree),
their eyes opened and became aware of their nudity for first time. Before obey
to the Devil, did not notice it! They did not
care at all about their nudity! Well, of course, things
are not exactly the same when it is cold... So, the nudity of the body
reflects the nudity of the soul.
So it is understanding, transparent purity of the holy and pure wishes and
necessities of the human are not a
shame at all,
as long we have not
within the elements of the reptile,
if we have not the ugliness of the evil spirit. The slyness, the creeping mind has become our nature,
repeating has become part of our nature, that is why is not
perceptible. This reptile mind part of our nature is
the one that bring us down to lower levels, making us unable to comprehend our Creator, and so
ourselves as well. Makes us unable to sense the real beauty and substance of
life. The true love, which of course is not some kind of materialist substance,
doesn't look forward for some personal advantage, it is
pure spirit that flows from
the Spirit of the Lord. The love must be offered by open-handed, and must precede and
dominate on the fleshly wish, and so, the love consecrates
also the sex, it consecrates and blesses
those who are in sexual love.
Whatever the Lord created,
and whatever siphons from the Highest, it
does not need to be dressed by the meaning to hide it; it is
holy, brilliant, pure.
But when one chooses to obey the voice of the
evil, then starts thinking unjustly for the others, acting cunningly
like devil, and so
we need covering, we need to
be hidden from the others. But we cannot
hide ourselves from
God. So, Moses used these traditional words related with the
gods who walked in the paradise in the cool of the day to pass this message:
The Spirit of God is within us, is walking in the symbolic
but and contradictory paradise
of our soul, with a lot of idols, and there is no fig leaf, no tree or cloth that could cover the
filthiness of our conscience. We are naked in front of the Lord;
nothing can hide us from God.
Don't forget this; don't think that you
could be hidden from God, or from yourself. Walk naked,
meaning, walk pure, without slyness within you, don't obey to the cunning voice of the
enemy, don't choose him, don't give him the right to destroy you, stay pure and
close to your Father who is your life. You can do it if you
try, you can be
pure and clean when you choose to obey only to the Voice of your Good Father.
So, the messages are
expressing by allegorical language, applying to
the each time living humans who have guilty conscience, who have reasons to be
ashamed and be hidden. Not applying to the dead people, neither the intention is
to teach us the story of some first humans. Those people, and also many
generations of their descenders, lived and died
naked, while had no cloths to dress, and no reason to be ashamed for the nudity of their body.
Besides we see the same phenomenon in our days. Still in our time there are
tribes in the Amazon and in other places as well, who live naked, without feel
ashamed. We know that the dressing, by the meaning covering/hiding, started in
the civilized levels, when the interests divided people, by causing conflicts
among them. As long they lived in groups, sharing their hunting or whatever they
had, generally had no cloths to dress, or reasons to
hide their bodies. They had unwritten laws regulating their relations, and all
members of the tribe used to respect and were obedient
to the tribal leaders. The unavoidable civilization was the one that imported
the shame and the hiding of the body, for the reason that it imported the
cunning and the greediness of the material wealth
and private property.
The devil dominated
mostly on the civilization, and not of course on the first humans who lived as
good and guileless in the forests and valleys, searching only for their food,
without having even language. The symbolic Adam and Eve, as the first naked
humans symbolize also a great era, in which the people were guileless, naked and
unashamed. So, the holy nudity of the body identify the innocence
of the soul.
We read from the verse 16.
And the Lord said
to the woman, I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; in pain
you shall bring forth children; your desire shall be for your husband, and he
shall rule over you.
Then to Adam He said, because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have
eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, you shall not eat of it.
Cursed is the ground for your sake, in toil you shall eat of it, all the days of
your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, and you shall
eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground.
For out of it you were taken, for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.
And Adam called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all
21 And the Lord
God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them.
Then the Lord said; Behold, the man has become one of Us, knowing good and evil;
and now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also from the tree of life, and
eat, and live forever. Therefore the Lord God sent him out from the garden, to
cultivate the ground from which he was taken.
24 So He drove the man
out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim, and the
flaming sword, which turned every direction, to guard the way to the tree of
In these verses, appears very obviously the endeavours of the people to explain
and understand the reasons of all those problems that caused sufferings every
day; the pain of the mother when give birth, the earth that doesn't produce
fruit by itself, they had to work very hard to survive, there was no other
choice but only to live by the sweat of their faces. As we realize there is no
word mentioned about slaves, as it seems there was not slavery yet. Clearly
reflects also a level of agriculture development, where
they used to work hard on the farms. It was time, in which the genus
(families) had joined into races, the woman had been
already degraded, and this comes obvious by the words. "Your husband shall rule
This was, as they believed, the
will of the gods. They also thought the gods original
created the woman differently, and after the
"disobedience", they changed the
structure of her body, judging her to suffer pain and be distressing when give
birth. The earth also was cursed,
according to their theory, to produce thorns and thistles, and
human was judged to eat bread by the sweat of his face, because Adam heeded his wife
and ate from the prohibited fruit.
Let us see the verses
19, 21. We see that the holy inspired Prophet modified the traditions, in
order to pass God's messages. We see he mention to Adam identifying him with the
earth. He says, you are earth, you came from the earth, and you will return to
the earth. Verse 19. He speaks exactly about the material body, (Adam, which
means Soil-man), and says, you came from the earth. Adam is earth, he is a
material body, and he is judged, meaning as a material body was created to
waste and recycling. It is very noteworthy that the name Eve appears apparently
in the wrong place, and for the first time.
Namely, while he speaks to Adam
saying, you came from the earth, and you will return to earth, then says,
Adam called his wife Eve, meaning Life or Soul, because she was the mother of
all living. Of course he would't call his wife Eve at that moment,
(!!!) but obviously Moses
put these words together, with the
other words, as, "Adam you are earth, and you will return to the earth" in order to pass the message of God that
says, the Soul/Eve is the Life of every human. Adam as
symbol of the material
body is earth, he is matter, and as matter cannot live forever.
Eve is his soul, and
the Devil deceives the soul. Adam is a material body, he was a
material body, and he was mortal from the beginning
until the end of the creation. And as long he lives as individual, must work
hard, and sweat to live, he will return to the earth, and will become dust.
Came from dust and will return to the dust! This is
the unavoidable situation, the hard reality and the implacable law on the
material world, difficult and temporary life, hard work, pain, cry and
suffering, death and recycling, until the end of the material
the message that comes out from the verses 16 to 19. Not because of the first
people's fault, neither because God wanted so, (and of course a lot of things
happen every day in the creation that are not according to God's Will), but
because this is the nature of the material world,
in which the Darkness exists and prevails.
Devil prevails while the human acts
according Devil's spirit. And out of this material
world the soul emerges victorious, and for this soul God created the material world. This victorious
soul that emerges out of the complicated nature, out of the good and evil
nature, that lives in the natural body, but also at the same
time another spiritual and immortal body is created, will live forever
and will be happy near to the beloved Father, repeating
again, in a glorious spiritual appearance that matches to the Lord. So the
creation was Light, was good, was magnificent and astonishing! Glory and love to
the Highest Creator and beloved Father.
The verse 21, says; God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife. This
perception comes clearly from the primitive tribes, and transferred by the
traditions. Those people used to be dressed by animals' skins, as they killed them to eat, and
used their skins to protect themselves from the cold. Their gods, which means
their fathers and tribal-leaders, were doing the same thing. Some people around
interpret it, as it was the first sacrifice. They maintain that God did
the first movement to the sacrifice, and by this example, God asked people to
sacrifice animals to God they say! What can we say to these people!! I want mercy, not sacrifices, and
as Isaiah said, who asked you for these things? And Jeremiah wrote.
"This is what
the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Go ahead, add your burnt offerings
to your other sacrifices and eat the meat yourselves! 22 For when I
brought your forefathers out of Egypt and spoke to them, I did not give them
commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices, 23 but I gave them
this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in
all the ways I command you that it may go well with you. 24 But they
did not listen or pay attention; instead, they followed the stubborn
inclinations of their evil hearts. They went backward and not forward. 25
From the time your forefathers left Egypt until now, day after day, again and
again I sent you my servants the prophets. 26 But they did not listen
to me or pay attention. They were obstinate and did more evil than their
Jeremiah 7: 21,24.
And the question is; does God change His decisions? Did God ever say something
untrue? Not of course. It is widely known, the primitive tribes used to dress
themselves with skins of animals, after killed them to feed, because had not invented
yet any other way to dress themselves. But the verse 21 may passes messages of
God, it is rather telling us, man was created by the need to get dressed. It
seems also that the message says, the human lived naked for a long time in the
arms of the nature, and after he started to dress himself by skins of animals.
He didn't of course build cities as the very posterior Cain did, but lived naked
as an animal in the nature. Some time after started to dress by skins of
animals; for long time he lived as an animal, in animals' skins, and so, in
From the words of the verses 23, 24, it emerges clearly the tradition that said;
the gods were like the humans, Adam was one of them! The gods knew that
previously were also humans, or of course the correct is; the humans were those
who knew through the traditions about
some famous gods who were formerly humans. Well, even in
our time people worship human-gods, as for example, the protector saints! So the
people used to make up some imaginary stories about the gods, and were looking
to find some way to become also gods but avoiding the death. So according to
those innocent fantasies, the humans would become immortal if succeed to eat a
piece from the wood of life. But the tradition was disappointing!
Boy, it said, they are dreaming in
vain about immortality, because are judged to die due
to the heredity of their foremother and forefather sin, who had eaten
from the fruit of the taboo tree that was in the paradise; this tree belonged to
the hostile god-snake.
They did not
obey the rule of the good gods. That is why
had been chased away, and so no one could go to
paradise, to eat a little piece from the wood of life.
Because of the disobedience, the gods had chased
the living human away from paradise, and
so, they let no one come
not even near to paradise.
They put the spirits to guard the way! Well, it is indeed
confusing, because of various traditions and imaginations of various tribes that
had been mixed up too much. But Moses used this complicated traditional story
allegorical, to be a reference of the complicated inward condition of disobedience and
expulsion that take place in every human's soul.
So according the traditions and imaginations, the gods
drove the human out of paradise, because ate from the fruit of taboo tree, and so, the
heredity of foremother and forefather condemned
every one to suffer, working hard, and die. The woman was also
condemned to suffer pain when give birth, and every human were condemned to die.
And of course, all these things happen every day, but not because of the
disobedience in a taboo tree as the ancient people
imagined. But because this is the nature of the material world, and this disobedience on the taboos, was
transferred also to signify our rude disobedience that is happening in daily base.
We, the humans, by acting unjustly and criminally, we provoke the aversion of
the Highest, meaning we provoke a kind of curse, which also unties the hands of
the Devil, who then gets a justified (through us) freedom, while we obey him,
and so he can act. And of course when the Devil acts, he destroys for his amusement.
see some other words. So the tradition said some gods were formerly
humans, and again, the living humans were those who knew through the traditions
that some gods were formerly humans.
Certainly not all of them, there was the unknown as well,
there was also some unknown God! And Moses put gods saying; behold the
(Adam) has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. And of course these
words broadcast some messages.
At first, by these words pass the message that says;
the knowledge of good and bad, is spiritual (divine) characteristic, not
belonging to the instincts, the animals that live by instincts do not know what
is good and bad. The man who know it, belongs to the divine (spiritual)
sphere. As we notice, Moses didn't put the evil god
snake to say these words, but the good gods, who said; the man has become like one of
us, because now he knows what is good and bad. And I
think, this is noteworthy.
Of course, no human could ever become like God, and
certainly it was not what Moses meant. These words rather
say: from the moment in which the human started to know the good and bad,
he passed in the divine sphere, something that means, as long didn't know,
human was not belonging to the divine sphere. Now what
that supposed to mean? Does perhaps it mean that the human before was not exactly
human? Or, perhaps it means that the human passed first through of a
level, before evolutionary be completed as human? No,
personally I don't believe so.
Rather it passes the message that the human went through of some great or
relative small era, and yes, was a human
by the current anatomic and morphological structure,
but lived in about the same condition of the animal that acts only by its
instincts. I consider it means the second. Rather it means, in some
quite great time the
human lived like the animal, without having
relation with the divine, did not know about divine. He had no language, or
religion, he knew nothing
about God, and the spirit was in some condition of
"numbness". By these words, I
believe, Moses rather passes the
message of human's ascension from some natural level, up
to a level of spiritual
The God's inspired Prophet, rather tell us, after the passing of
some time, the human started to become aware of his divine nature, while before
was not occupied at all with the religion and the divine, neither had clear
knowledge of what is good and bad. He lived in very natural surroundings, in the
forests and valleys like all the other animals. Obviously it
constitutes also a reference to the free volition, or relative to the
circumstances free volition, which make the Human responsible of his deeds and
behaviour, something that does not apply to the animals, while acting
"mechanical", according to the instincts.
Let us see the wood
The ancient people, as it was natural, were afraid of the death. Very natural,
they didn't want to die. They wanted to live forever, like everyone does. Of
course they used to believe the spirits of the dead fathers etc,
live, which also means that the Highest Father
had His holy ways to give them the proportionate courage that every human needs,
while knows will die, and this knowledge of
death often terrify human. If there is no hope at all, this kind of knowledge is
painful. But besides the hope, were also trying to find some other ways to avoid
the natural death. One of them was the wood of life. So what was that famous and
literal wood of life that had the power, as they thought, to offer them
immortality? I already mentioned, but let us see it again.
As I already said, and as it is wide known, the ancient people
some trees and forests, while the
primitives believed, in some big trees lived some of their gods. This
concept came from the fact, as some
tribes used to live first in the forests, and some tribal leaders were
having some rest supporting themselves on tree trunks. Some others died on the
trees, or sometimes had some sleep in tree cavities. So they thought, in some
trees lived the spirits of some deified tribal
In the Greek mythology, the bay tree was before a beautiful nymph. Her
name was Daphne; she was the daughter of god Penius, he was the god, spirit of
the river. Some day the god Apollo who was in love with her,
stroked by the arrows-love of Eros, was chasing her, and while she
wanted to avoid him, asked her father, (the river Penius) to help her, and
that "silly god"
converted her into Daphne!! What a
pity, a nice girl to become a tree! Minerva also "converted" her friend Myrsini
into a shrub seeing her dying, and the oak tree was also the tree of
Jupiter etc. Even in our time, some people believe some trees are haunted; they believe some
spirits live in these trees.
So as it comes up, the gods lived
somewhere in the paradise, lived in a beautiful and dreamy place,
of nice fruit trees on the earth!
What a marvellous garden, but what a pity
this paradise was prohibited for
the mortals! Why? Because of the
disobedience! For those people, that paradise yet existed somewhere in an unknown
place. Somewhere very close, somewhere near, there was
a magic landscape, a very beautiful landscape like inaccessible dream, like the dreamy landscape of
immortality and prosperity of the gods. People used to say a lot of magnificent
stories about that famous paradise, but what a pity, they couldn't go. Others
also said, this paradise was indeed a garden that was called Eden, it was around
those beautiful rivers Tigris and Euphrates, and according to them, that was the
dreamy place of god's rest. Not on the mountains. No.
It seems the mountains became much later god's residence.
So, as it
is obvious by the writings, the gods had some kind of narrow relation with the
trees, and as they used to live before as humans, continually in people's
fantasy, the gods were walking at the cool of the day between the trees of
the paradise. The tradition said, the gods prohibited to the first created to
eat some wood from a certain tree, while didn't obey to
the unwritten law of the god-tribal leaders, or somewhere
vague, did not obey to some unknown God, but ate from the (taboo) tree of
the snake. He was a hostile god, very hostile, an enemy of the good gods or
an enemy of the unknown Great God. So the gods punished
the living human since
ate from hostile and taboo tree, and for further security the
gods placed the spirits and the flaming sword to guard the way to the other tree,
to the tree
of life, while if the human
go to eat from this deified
tree, would become immortal like the gods. The gods were very
upset with them!
And of course this is a
clear reference to the internal condition of every human soul, where sins and feelings of guiltiness
act as furies pushing people
away from God, and so, away from Paradise, and also, the furies set fences to
our returning to God, while the guiltiness keep turning within us and keep
burning the calmness of our soul. As I mention in the subject, "The
So inside that tree, "lived" some god, the tree was deified. The gods were
immortal, and some of them, maybe one, "lived" in the tree. So the tree
"had" divine powers;
"it could offer immortality", as they
thought. It is to comprehend, people were trying to find some way to
become immortals and famous gods like the old tribal leaders, but wanted to
avoid to pass first that painful step of death. They didn't want to die, and of
course that was not bad for them, but certainly it was a
very deceiving dream. They were trying to invent various ways to avoid
the death, and of course always ended up in falling and disappointed.
So, because they believed some gods lived in the
trees, they imagined the only way to
become immortal was to eat from the deified tree.
But again, this tree was
in the paradise of the immortal gods, and those mortals could not go.
All these were of course innocent and humanist fantasy, and it seems that this
theory about the first created and their disobedience, was formatted when they
knew very well that the death is unavoidable. Those ungodly gods judged them to
die, and also put the spirits to guard the way to the
vivifying tree, and no more hopes, they couldn't find again the lost paradise,
so they might eat a
little branch. They couldn't have communion with the body of their god, and
become immortal. Similar perceptions prevailed in other pursuits and
wishes. Some tribes believed, if someone ate the heart of lion especially row, would
become strong and brave like the lion. Others believed, that the best way for
the ground to produce more fruits was to make sex with the earth. Many similar
perceptions still exist in our time, and we could collect a lot of them from
The holy inspired Moses used innocent perceptions and traditions, the hope and
the struggle of the human to live, and modified the words of hope to close
within symbols and transfer God's hopeful messages. For those disappointed
people that been agonized from the fear of death, the wood of life was their
only hope to stay alive, it was a little branch from the deified tree, which was
the body of some good god. According to their belief, if they
could go to paradise and have communion with the body of their god, they would
become immortal. And this divine branch, this faith of the people to the body of
some good god who could offer them immortality, became the symbol of the True
Wood of Life, the True Body of God. And the Lord said, whoever eats from that
Wood of Life has eternal life. Behold how the innocent mythologies and the pure
and imaginary dreams of the people to become immortal gods served God's plans for the
salvation of the human.
pray and like
a supplication, by this way served the plan of the Highest. It was the necessary
cry, and invitation of the human to his Creator, the invitation to the Tree of Life, for
the opening of the road for the Salvation. Lord asked the paralytic, do you want
to be well? He didn't ask to learn of course for if he wanted to be well, but
the Lord passes the message; it is absolutely necessary to ask, because God will
interfere only in the borders of the justice. Lord said, ask and you will be
heard, nock and the door will be opened for you.
The Son of God was
from the beginning the Tree of Life, but because of the interpositions of the
Darkness, the human couldn't come very near to the Tree, so may have eternal
life, without be afraid of natural death. The spirit of the Darkness had access
to the human soul (had access to Eve) and could deceive her, and convince her to
choose the enjoyment of the alluring bad, instead of choosing the difficult good
that said to him/her, do not choose the alluring bad, it looks good, but it is
not, it will cause you death, which means separation from the Creator and Master
of life. It was very difficult for the human soul to be liberated from the
interpositions of the devil, and she could not come close to the Tree of Life
and become one, in a holy union. So the Holy Tree of Life came to the earth, and
offered freely to the human the branches of immortality.
Lord taught humans how to get liberated from the interpositions of the
Lord suffered and being crucified in order to atone
and justify the human, and therefore to liberate the human from the authority of
the Devil, who said, these people belong to me.
He said and yet does, for the reason that
we choose the bad, and the bad
belongs to the devil. But the Lord paid for the disobedience of human's
Eve, who at last repented for her disobedience, and ask for forgiveness, she
says, forgive me Lord, I did not want to do it Lord, the snake deceived me, but
it was my fault too. Lord gives her another chance, to try again, and again, not
to choose again the bad, not to choose the devil, but at last, to choose the
good, to call God in her life.
Then is free, she/he can eat from the Wood of
Life, and the Wood of Life forgives her for her bad choices,
and offering immortality,
which means to be united with the Immortal God. So
in those not harm at all perceptions, in the innocent and humanist wishes, about
wood of life and lost paradise, the holy inspired Moses placed symbols and
messages of God. The true Paradise, in which stands the Wood of immortality, is
open for the human. The Lord opened the way; He who is the Kingdom of God became
the Wood of eternal life for the people.
This complaint and cry
of the human, his pure wish for eternal life, his agony and
fear in front of the death,
his cry not to disappear in the darkness of non-existence, were not contradicted.
The eternal and happy life
is not a dream; it is reality. The wood of eternal life, which
was the innocent
dream of life of the ancient people, symbolizes the
Everlasting Sacrifice that beats the Devil liberating the faithful from
authority by paying human's debts;
it symbolizes the Blood and the Body of
philanthropic Saviour. It is the symbolic true Drink and true Bread that transfers the human in the Kingdom of God and offers him
eternal life. God did not contradict the pure dream of man to live, the Lord
replied to people's invitation.
say only to those who find difficult to believe, if there were no hope, there
would not be any hope. Meaning if it was impossible for man to live after the
death of his body, something that does not stand at
all, because God is the Master and the Spring of life, but if it was not
possible, then God would create the human differently, so
the man would also live as an animal, without having the ability to believe and
hope. Who for example believes that the lion hopes it will live eternal life?
Certainly doesn't care at all about this, only eats and acts according the
instincts. Why then not to create and the human like this, to
live by instincts? Why gave us the ability to believe and
hope in vain? But no, we do not believe in vain.
Lord came to connect us with God, and offer us the Wood of eternal life. Lord
says; if you eat My Body, and drink My Blood, namely whoever believes and
accepts the Lord by word and by action, and welcomes Him in his heart and in his
life, and participates and drinks in a symbolic action, which means if anyone
acknowledge as way of his salvation the Sacrifice of the philanthropic Saviour,
he/she has life, and has no reason to be afraid of the death of the
materialist body, but sees this death as a bridge that
transfers us into the perfect Kingdom of the Highest.
As it is known, the ancient people because of their
circumstantial ignorance about God, used to interpret every thing, good or bad,
as it was coming from God. But
it is not true, now most of the people understand that
the sufferings, the pain of the mother, the sweat of the face, which being
snatched "by law and justice", leaving only the sweat running in the empty
pocket of him who sweats, the chaos of the economic inequality and so many other
bad, they come from natural,
social-rapacious conditions and laws, and
other objective reasons, while
the darkness rules until the end of the pre-determined time. We live in the
kingdom of devil, and as long we live in this kingdom, all these bad things will exist.
also says, that everybody must live by his work, by the sweat of his brow, but
for thousands of years now, those who sweat often suffer, and those who do not
sweat think they are just lucky. They closed their ears, and do not want to
hear the message, they do not understand that when they steal the sweat of
others, there remains an injustice that will someday return to judge them. He
who is thirsty for justice will be satisfied, Lord Jesus said.
