The Tree of Knowledge


Greetings to All,

Let us read these few verses:

[2] And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
[3] But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
[6] And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

First of all it has to be established what were the trees in order to know what the fruit is. Fruit represents the spirit of something. Those of the Holy Spirit have good fruit and those of Satan have bad fruit... they are fruit in a sense from the tree that they partake of.

Let us look at what something is in the "midst" of something else similar to that tree that stood in the "midst" of the garden.

[6] And God said, Let there be a firmament in the {{{midst}}} of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

Here we have an example of the waters with the firmament in the "midst"... the firmament being heaven and the heaven dividing the waters from above from the waters down below.

Adam and Eve are in the garden and in the midst of the garden are two trees and the serpent. We know the fruit of the tree of life... is life eternal. We know the fruit of the serpent is a liar, thief and murderer. And the tree of knowledge of good and evil were what the first two children of Eve were... Abel = good and Cain = evil. Partaking of that fruit produced two children of that tree.

We also know this:

[22] I am the LORD in the {{{midst}}} of the earth.

[5] For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

One would not know what is good and evil unless they saw the difference... and their eyes were not open until they ate. Eve was talking to the Serpent and did not have the knowledge that he was evil. Adam nor Eve disobeyed therefore they did not know evil either... prior to eating of the tree which was disobedience to God's command. Death obviously did not appear to be evil either when the Lord said to Adam if he ate he would surely die. God's words are Spirit... therefore this fruit was of a spirit standing in the midst of the garden. They (Adam and Eve) who were alive in the Spirit partook of the fruit which made DEATH alive. Therefore two trees stood in the Garden had fruit, which were LIFE and DEATH. Now to partake of the tree of knowledge of good and evil activated DEATH. Therefore they had to activate something evil in order to know what was good but in the process they received the consequence which was death and death to all their seed.

Therefore the fruit of the tree is death received by disobedience and that is the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Thereby being made known to them the difference and having the knowledge of good and evil from the evil done. And God being the Light exposed their darkness and they saw themselves as naked and hid amongst the trees having also sown leaves of a fig tree as aprons on themselves. So their inwardness became like the spirit of the tree and their outwardness was clothed with the leaves of that tree. Which means they were completely affected by what they did do inwardly and outwardly. ... and so was their seed, which are now in the image of Adam not God by the way... (Gen. 5:3). So this further tells us that what they partook of altered their very being. ... AND Death does do that spiritually and physically. The fruit then of the knowledge of good and evil is DEATH.

God Bless,
