Trees and Laws

So, I picked up a book I'd not read in quite a time. Title: There were Two Trees in the Garden - Rick Joyner (I believe one of his first books from a long long time ago).

It was like I had never read it before.

The cool thing was that is was the early morning of my 35th birthday and it was so reveletory power packed that I knew it was my birthday gift from Fader God. Can't outdo His gifts! Even an ipod touch and bike trainer can't outdo his gifts :)

So, a few sentences in I read how The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil and the Law have the same ministry. Think about that a sec. It's a doozy! Satan tempted Eve, 'You will be like God, knowing both good and evil.' They ate, their eyes were opened, and they saw themselves - naked. Hmm. And the law does what? Reveals things as they are. The law makes you look at yourself. Before they ate of that fruit looking at themselves was a non issue.

So the seed of death and condemnation was planted via Adam and Eve partaking of that fruit. That FRUIT spread it's seed through mans seed. God sends his seed via Jesus. The seed of the tree of life that man no longer had the privelege to eat of - cast out of the garden, tree guarded by some groovy angels. So Holy Spirit seed impregnates virgin. This girl birthes Jesus into the world BORN OF A DIFFERENT SEED. Did you hear that? Jesus was born of the Spirit. First born of many. That seed had to die in order for the seed to spread. We are partakers of His divine nature. We have been born again. Born of the Spirit of God. New creations in an old body. Isn't that so absolutely amazing??!!

So, the old seed's power is cancelled out. We are no longer subject to the ill effects of fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. We no longer have to be SELF concious- we are no longer naked ,cause Jesus is our clothing. So, we are hidden in Jesus. No longer hiding under leaves, or sacrificing animals for our covering. We are back in the garden again. We have been transferred from the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of Light. Pheeenomenalll. This my dear friends is fact. We are what we are and what we are is totally perfect new clean pure holy creations. Of Holy Spirit seed. This is what you are if you accept Jesus's covering, His Life, His Power. . . Much of 'christendom' still operates as though we were still of the Kingdom of darkness. Still subject to the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And much that appears good to the undiscerning eye, is actually empowered by Self rather than God, powered by Law, by the tree of knowing good and evil. 'I will ascend the heights' I will I will. Stop man. It is taken care of. If you don't receive the FINISHED work of Jesus you are essentially are saying that you are better than God. You are putting yourself above God. Who are you? Either receive the finished work or go try to accomplish in your own strength what has already been accomlished. What arrogance for us to even contemplate taking the place of God. Sheer lunacy really. Why take the place of God (pride) when He has already taken our place (humility). Insanity and arrogance go hand in hand.

Why even attempt the impossible when the impossible has already been done for us?!!


  1. This was great! That we are totally pure, clean new creations born of His seed! The old seed's power - of sin and death - cancelled out! I love that! It feels so good to be free..

    The impossible has already been done for - I have spent most of my life trying to do something that has already been done! I'm ready to celebrate what's already true!

  2. Do you mind if I add your blog to my bloglist at Under the Waterfall?

  3. Hope you don't mind, but I linked this on Facebook!! Good stuff indeed!

  4. I am so glad this made sense to you guys! And Sparrow, by all means - I mean I went ahead and already added you :) oops. And Lydia, I totally do not mind at all!

  5. BECS! You're RIGHT; we're grooving to the same rhythm, I believe. HA!! TOTAL GOD THING!!! Funny thing? My sister started talking about all this on Sunday after I wrote the Halloween post which she hadn't read yet! God is so Godincidental.

    Rick Joyner? Of Morningstar? Hmmm, interesting. Kelanie Gloeckler was there for awhile. It's not my cuppa but the book sounds right on. Swallow the meat; spit out the bones, right?

    Delicious & nutricious post. YUMMY. From the TREE OF LIFE! Dining on LAMB. :)

  6. I so know what you are saying re the author. However, this being the first book he wrote. . . There is a certain innocence and profound simplicity. Sometimes throughout the book he seems to contradict the very essence of the point of the book (look to Jesus not yourself), but on the whole some amazing parallels!

    That is really really cool. I love it when God does that coinciding revelations and thoughts (one and the same?). Obviously, He is making a point!

  7. Hey YOU, have a most splendiferous time in Winnepeg this weekend. What could be better than YOUR delicious wild boar though? Other than someone else doing the cooking. LOL
