More on that later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan writing good news. The tree of life that God planted in the middle of the garden of Eden still stands, and in its leaves.

There's healing for the nations we come today to the end of our study of Revelation. I hope that you've seen Jesus, for it is a revelation of Jesus Christ. I hope that you been given some tools to continue their study of this amazing apocalyptic vision and today we, too, in many ways, not just how it ends the story of humanity with God, but how it began, because in the beginning God made this beautiful beautiful garden and he put in the center of it to very different trees so we can start in Genesis chapter 2 and then were going to go on Revelation 22 Genesis 2 verse nine and out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the siding good for food, the tree of life was in the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil river flowed out of Eden to water the garden and there it divided and became four rivers and the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and to keep it in the Lord God commanded the man saying you may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in that day that you eat of it you shall surely surely die. We often say with the Psalm is surely the boundary lines have fallen for us in pleasant places, because the Lord has given us a beautiful city in which to live a beautiful community in which we get to minister and I think often of how many very difficult difficult places that people all over the world are ministering in the name of Jesus. And here I am in this beautiful place and our home in recent years has been a particularly beautiful place. Our backyard goes downhill, and there's sort of a field they are and then there's a beautiful lake a small lake that's there and I golf course.

On the other side that the Yadkin River.

It is just a beautiful beautiful view and I just love it.

I just love it and it's like we we will mux the wildlife in the end, and nature so lovely.

There is a big tree in our backyard that was already big when we moved in some years ago, but continue to grow as trees do. Reaching more more for daylight and has begun to take over more. The backyard and blocked more more of our view, and I suggested upon moving into the house to my wife.

I said, you know, perhaps it would be worth it to consider removing that phrase so that our view would be much more panoramic and she said by no means and that she reminded me that only God can make a tree and so there were is there a decision about the tree I bring it up from time to time. That may be the view would be better if that tree were not there standing next to that big tree is another tree. This much larger huge red Oak tree that is in just over my neighbors yard and it obscures the view to our left even more than our big tree, but of course it's our neighbors tree. Nothing to be done about that. And so this was the state of affair for many years view is so slowly getting encroached upon. Until about three weeks ago. I was actually was in the morning I was sitting on the back deck and having my breakfast. It was another stormy morning was just a misty eye. Misty morning and so I was very surprised when I heard the sound of thunder and I at it. It caused me to look up.

I thought no thunderstorm on this.

Is there it was louder than thunder.

It was thunderous and I stood to see what was making an I've never seen this and all my life that huge red Oak tree in my neighbors yard unannounced of its own accord, came crashing to the ground.

It was ponderous and thunderous torments when it hit the ground the whole ground shook. It came down with such force that it sheared the entire left side off of the large tree in my yard and split it up at the top, leaving it irreparable and demanding. According to the arborist that it be cut down as well.

I saw this massive red Oak tree lying in my yard, and this destroyed big tree of some other sword in my yard and my first thought is I'm looking at this is how much is this going to cost and my second thought was, wow one of you. So somehow the Lord is working it out to give you the desires of your heart then were down two trees and we have a much much better view.

It wasn't until an arborist came out and I began getting estimates removing these trees because that any understanding how this huge red Oak tree fell, no wind, no storm. It was a tree that had been leaning some, but not such a viewer thought it eminently going to fall.

It wasn't until we went to the root ball. This massive root ball that was twice as tall as I began pointing out to me many dark places. He said all of this is decay of the root system.

He said that tree was destined to fall but you couldn't tell from the outside it was going to fall but for the time being in it look like it was standing strong steelhead green leaves didn't have any signs of deadness but at the root they would die on talk today about two trees in the middle of the garden and the tree of life that John saw in the concluding chapter of Revelation. I want to point out to you that in the vision that he has of a new heaven and a new earth of a new a new Jerusalem picture of like a city that is the temple that is describing a new creation that God makes what he sees there is one train the tree of life. I want to suggest you today that the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, from which humanity has been eating from the time of Adam and Eve in the original sin that tree that is so poisonous, so toxic as I'll explain that though it still stands. The time is coming is going fall its root system has already been decaying ever since the cross of Jesus Christ. It has been defeated and is going to come thunderously crashing down, leaving us to eat only from the tree of life. I imagine in that early garden there wears every kind of imaginable tree were told that every kind of tree that was pleasing to look at and was delicious. The taste was put in the garden of Eden, and I just imagine that there was kind of for tilting to the soil that allowed all kinds of different plants to grow together. That might not normally grow together.

Just imagine that that citrus trees and oranges and pineapples and lemons work were growing up next to homegrown tomatoes and Peachtree.

I just imagine beautiful flowering plants everywhere every kind of imaginable beautiful plant. And surely there was this tree had been there the theobromine account tree if it was paradise you had to have the cocoa tree. Of course chocolate must've been there and so every kind of tree was there and in the midst of it.

The serpent comes and tempts Eve and tries to distort the word of God by by by by leading a discussion a kind of of engagement of dialogue. It is now lured her away from her simple relationship with God now into an interaction with the devil and in that Tim Tatian there is the idea that you will be better off if you eat of the one tree that God said you are not to eat of this is not a story of a God who is restrictive and all about prohibitions and all about limits. This is a story of yes God who has a massive garden paradise and one tree that he said I do not want to eat from the tree and it was not simply because the serpent hated God and therefore wanted the people to disobey God. It was that the serpent understood the devil understood that in that tree. There was poison that would be the fuel for all demonic activity with the devil, understood was that there was more than simple disobedience to God. There was an introduction to humanity of the new system of being in the reason that God prohibited. That tree of the knowledge of good and evil was not simply because he wanted to test Adam and Eve, it was because he loved because he knows how we're designed and were designed to feed off the tree of life that Allen Wright will have more teaching moment today is an important series.

Now you once again is when we come to Revelation 22. This is a continuation really of Revelation 21 and now you see that tree of life, starting at verse one. The angel showed me the river of water of life, brightest crystal try to see this in your mind's eye. All these rich symbols and beauty flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city held that possible, but it's a it's like a city just images like life, people in in the middle of is this river of life that just flowing, and on either side of the river. The tree of life again is its beauty and symbolism how the tree is on both sides may be at maybe as many trees that represent the one tree or maybe it's just mysteriously able to be on both sides with this 12 kinds of fruit, 12 always, representing the people of God in their totality. All the fruit, yielding its fruit each month, not just in harvest time and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations no longer will there be anything occurs but the throne of God and the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. Rick Joyner has written an insightful book on this call. Thereto trees in the garden and my spiritual father Dudley Hall is going to be here for some special meetings with the whole church and with men in September, Dudley Hall, in his classic book grace works describes these two trees as the do to be tree in the be to do tree. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The do to be.

It is to say that there is an introduction here if you will do this then you can make yourself more like God instead of understanding yourself as a child of God and letting that shape everything the Tim Tatian the primal temptation was to think that this somehow up to you. Genesis 3 Wanda five tells the story the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field, the Lord God had made any said to the woman, did God actually say you shall not eat of any tree in the garden and the woman said to the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden. But God said, you shall not, in the fruit of the tree that's in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die, but the serpent said to the woman you will not surely die for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opening you will be like God, knowing good and evil and so she ate and Adam ate it look like the right thing and it was totally the wrong thing could be so wrong about knowledge of good and evil. The problem is that from the poison of this tree we ingest a new system of living that you could call legalism or dead religion. You could call it by any name, but what it means it is is a substitute of our performance and our works rather than relationship with God. Instead of yielding to God and relating to God. Now it is all turned up on. Here's what you need to do in order to make yourself like God.

Here's what you need to do if you're going to be fully blessed and that is toxic and that tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the problem behind all of humanity.

In fact, I think what you see in the book of Revelation. As we been looking at all these bizarre images over the past weeks is it you will see the fruit of the tree of life and the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in abject contrast to one another. If you were to grow the fruit and to its fullest expression. We see these images and we see the contrast so we saw in chapter 13 beast that rose up out of the land looked like a lamb looked innocent enough, but had the words in the speech of the Dragon and we saw that that creature that looked appealing and even did signs and wonders that people were amazed by was full of lies and inwardly putrid rate evil and there was a number that was a symbol of those that worship that beast 666 which I suggested is a symbol that reminds us of how it's not seven and seven is the number of completion seven is the number of God's rest on the Sabbath day.

So to say. 666 is to say ever.

Seven never seven number 723666 is the mark of the beast is not to imply a literal tattoo I don't think I think it is to imply instead something that has invaded the soul, the mind of following of the beast is that everything is all about six which means that's the day that man was made and it never gets the Sabbath 666. Is this a man man, man human human human humanism, humanism, humanism ever Sabbath never Sabbath never Sabbath all you all up to you all up to you all about you all about you, me, me, me, that's hell, that's what the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is all about what you eat of it you think all know good and evil than what you really find out is that the human heart fallen into sin is so prone to to judge mentalism and try really is effort to be good so that I'm better than you, and that therefore I don't feel so bad about myself anymore is out of this that every piece of hatred in the world has been born. It's a hellish thing to have to be self absorbed, because when you eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. You're either thinking about yourself by saying MI better than other people have I done enough good things are. You've accepted the fact that you could never live up to any legal standard.

And so you don't care anymore so now it's just all about whether I'm getting what I want and whether I'm getting enough pleasure. Whether I have enough so either way it's about me me me is the media of religious pride or does the me of licentious living. But either way it all comes from the same tree as well. The devil one of them. The amount of relationship with God, but the tree of life is altogether different. The tree of life is a picture of God's own life in you where you don't have to think about yourself because you are in relationship and thinking about God and that's a wonderful thing.
