It all started with Two trees!

Two Trees explain the very foundation of our World

A very long time ago, God left us the story of the Garden of Eden.  Where in this Garden God made man from the dust of the Ground.  Meaning that Man was NOT immortal but flesh and blood unlike God who was Immortal and has always existed.

But man needed a companion.  Man could not procreate without a female mate.  God wanted to have many children from this man.  So from one of Man’s rib God formed Wo-man.  Meaning from Man.  And the two became as one.  

Note: I am convinced after much prayer about this union in the beginning that God sees the act of intercourse (sex) one human man and one female, are then considered ONE or as we call it Married in HIS sight.  It is not a church paper, or a human law that makes a man and woman married it is God.  Once two people of the  opposite sex unite in sexual intercourse they are then united as one in God’s eyes.  There is a HUGE reason for this.  Of which I will not take time to explain in this chapter)

God placed the man and woman in the garden.  It was a perfect place.  Perfect weather, animals, every plant you can imagine.  No danger existed to the man or woman.  All their needs were met.  Fruit to eat as well as vegetables, clean water and clean air.  They did not have to do hard labor for God provided all they needed.

God instructed the Man and woman how to be successful and live abundantly in the garden of Eden.  With those instructions He told them of Two trees He had there.  One tree was the best of fruit to eat.  They could eat of that tree, it was called the Tree of LIFE.  But one tree was forbidden.  That tree was NOT be eaten from .  For that was the tree of Knowledge.  The knowledge of good and evil.  

The story of how first man, Adam and his wife Eve chose to act in the garden is the result we have in the world today.  

Today we have untold advances in technology.  We can move faster through the air and on ground.  We go to the depths of the ocean and into space.  We communicate in a instant around the world.  We can put a image in a machine and that machine can make a 3D object in seconds.  Phones, computers, are so advanced from what they were even just 15 years ago!

But with all this “knowledge”  we cannot solve the problems of society.  Hunger, greed, murder, theft, and no peace in all the world.  The same moral problems beset us day in and day out.  One nation hates another nation and one neighbor hates his neighbor.  One family hates his own mother or sister or brother.  People go into grade schools and kill little children!  Other children are kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery! Why? What happened in that perfect Garden that brought us to this point?

It is amazing that NO one teaches of the two trees today do they?  Few at least do.  Not in the majority of churches or in schools, or in families.  Why?  What little some people have of the trees they are usually wrong information and no one thinks or attempts to look it up and study the story themselves.  It sure is not because of lack of bibles to find out!  With computers anyone can go look it up.

Back to the beginning of man.  Not the beginning of the world but of man that God created.
God told the man what he was to do.  Man was to multiply and replenish the earth.  But still man and woman were not complete.  They were physical and could die.  They had a human spirit but not  the spirit of God in them.    That spirit of God could only come IF they truly chose GOD and His way of life.  IF they chose God and His ways of Love and fulfillment, God would beget him with eternal life.  (beget means 
father, sire, have, bring into the world, give life to, bring into being)
This means God would, In time, bring into them spiritual life instead of mortal.  It means Eternal LIFE with Him!

But Man and woman chose of their own free will the wrong tree.  Yes they were Tempted by the serpent.  (serpent being satan himself)  For they desired to have what the tempter offered.  What did he offer them?  

 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
Read all of Genesis for the whole story

I know what your thinking, why would having knowledge of Good and evil be bad?  For ONE, GOD said so and after knowing God well you will find out all God says is TRUTH and all He asks of us is for Our GOOD.  
Basically it gets down to trusting and relying on God or we choose to be
Proverbs 10:8
Living Bible (TLB)
8 The wise man is glad to be instructed, but a self-sufficient fool falls flat on his face.
IF they had chosen then of the tree of life They would have been given Eternal Life.  It was the tree of LIFE.  A full life, a Happy and Joy filled life.  But they chose to Know for themselves, to decide for themselves what THEY deemed was good for them. They chose to decide what was best and how to do it.  And that is the result today.  Chaos, sickness, depression, wars, living for SELF not for others.  Living to GET and not to give.  We live in a country that wants God out of our schools, out of Government, there are groups who have a mission to erase any signs of God anywhere if they could.  WHY? Because thy want to choose themselves what is right.  And these signs of God remind them of God there maker.  That they reject the one true source of True LOVE and happiness from God.
Adam and Eve those the path of Self-Reliance.  Self Righteousness. And by the very decision they chose to REJECT God their maker. 
NOTE: interesting that the forbidden fruit must have "tasted" good.   Showing us that sin seems good at the moment.  But the FRUIT of sin is always bad for us.  ALWAYS.  Not immediate but always in time very bad for us and all our loved ones around us end up hurting. 
Here is what God said to them after they sinned and ate of the tree of knowledge: 3:16-19
16 Then he said to the woman,
“I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy,
    and in pain you will give birth.
And you will desire to control your husband,
    but he will rule over you.[c]
17 And to the man he said,
“Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree
    whose fruit I commanded you not to eat,
the ground is cursed because of you.
    All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
It will grow thorns and thistles for you,
    though you will eat of its grains.
By the sweat of your brow
    will you have food to eat
until you return to the ground
    from which you were made.
For you were made from dust,
    and to dust you will return.”

So today except for a select few that Answer God’s call and of their own will say YES, GOD I want to live your way. I want to follow your ways of living. I want to trust and live with you.  I want God sufficiency. I reject SELF sufficiency!  

There is still time.  Reject the way of the world and choose God’s way.  You will never regret it.  You will find what you really are searching for.  It can not be found in money, things, or earthy relationships.

Then you will have true joy and happiness.  You will find His strength and love through your struggles in this fallen world.  Proverbs 10:22 
The Lord’s blessing is our greatest wealth.

I have only lightly touched on this subject.  For you cannot hold the heavier knowledge that comes from God yet.  Until you accept God as your creator and life- you cannot even understand the smallest of spiritual knowledge.  None of us can understand without God helping us to know.  A wall of unbelief stands before us until God opens it up through Belief.  You will either believe or not the choice is still up to you. Little by little after you accept the truth, will knowledge come.  It takes study.  Day after day of study.  And then the heavens of wisdom open up and you will breath the life of true living.
