THEME: TREE OF LIFE
“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.”
-Like in the beginning, we find the tree of life in the middle of paradise yielding healing and restoration to the nations. Christ is our Redemption and calls us to drink from the river of life, that we may dwell in His everlasting grace. In His love, He became a curse for the sake of our salvation and gave us victory over all snakes and scorpions that we may overcome all power of the enemy and remain at rest.
When Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, sin came into world. God withdrew them from the garden of Eden lest they eat from the tree of life and be condemned forever. Through His everlasting love, God sent His Son Jesus to save man from sin causing death. He became sin and died on the cross for the redemption of the entire human race. Wisdom and righteousness are also symbolic to the tree of life. In 1 Corinthians 1:30; we see that Christ Jesus has become for us wisdom from God, that is; our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Through Him we are the righteousness of God. The Holy Spirit helps us to overcome the temptations that the world present to us that at the end of time we may have the right to eat from the tree of life. Christ is the Vine and we are His branches. When we abide in Him, we receive His love, wisdom, righteousness, peace and victory. As a young tree starts to grow with shallow roots that strengthen and grow deeper over time. Branches start as small buds and stretch upwards, reaching for the sun and sky. Just like a tree, we grow stronger over time and strives for greater knowledge and new experiences. In Christ then, we bear much fruit, some thirty fold, others sixty and others a hundred fold for the glory of His name.
Lord You are the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Almighty Father, we praise You and glorify Your holy name. Remain in Us Holy Spirit for without You we can do nothing. Deliver us from all evil snares that only come to distract us from Your will and forgive us all our sins. Increase our faith in You Jesus and save us from all evil that only causing us pain and suffering. Show us Your ways Holy Spirit and lead us in Your truth that only yields life everlasting. Bestow unto us, our families, nation and entire world Your gift of salvation so that we may have the right to the tree of life. Journey with us Lord in our purposes according to Your divine will and help us to focus on Your Kingdom. All glory, honor, power, strength, wealth and praise belong to You Jesus now and forever. Amen
