The Tree of Life

When Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden of Eden, it was because they had eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and
the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

The tree of knowledge, with its apple that gave man awareness of good and evil, also grew a more bitter fruit man wrenched from its branches: the consciousness of the shortness of the individual life and the finality of death. Adam, by disobeying the Lord, had placed himself above God by going against His word to him. If Adam and Eve had obeyed, they would have continued in their innocence, they would not have had the knowledge of good and evil but only the knowledge of good. If we can only live in the spirit, we can come to the point of being delivered from evil. The lesson here is that through disobedience to the divine mandates, we set ourselves up as false gods. We do this especially through pride which makes us resisitant to the Word of God to our souls, God cannot speak to us if we think so much of ourselves that we are better than God Himself. Satan tempts man just like the serpent did in the garden of Eden to Eve, and he will tempt us with the same argument, the promise of eternal life and that we will be as gods. If we are truly to eat of the tree of life, it would be to deny ourselves with complete humility and let God be God.
