JUST DA TRUTH – ABOUT “BEING” A TREE OF LIFE

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life.  Proverbs 13:12 New Living Translation

Have you ever thought about how things would be so different if Adam had eaten from the Tree of Life instead of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?  Think about this:

  • No one would ever die.
  • No sickness or disease would exist.
  • No lack in any area.
  • True peace and harmony between all people and all things.

People talk about this all the time and make stories and movies about it. Unfortunately, in this perverted world and because Adam did eat from the wrong tree, that will never happen until Jesus comes and governs the Earth.  But lets talk about right here and right now. Did you know that  you can BE a tree of life?

Take a look at these scriptures.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 New Living Translation

This verse tells us when hope, which Bible hope is a confident and consistent expectation of good is deferred it can make the heart sick.  But when your God-given dream or desire is fulfilled, it is and becomes a tree of life not just to the dreamer but to others.  I look at ministers like Kenneth Copeland, Jesse Duplantis, Joseph Prince.  These people are trees of life.  By fulfilling their God-given purpose they have become a tree of life because they are spreading the Gospel of Jesus and shining light on Jesus by preaching and teaching the Word of God who is Jesus.  Look at this next verse.

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives. Proverbs 11:30 NIV

If you are born again you ARE righteous!!! Just as righteous as the ministers I mentioned above and Jesus has ordained you to bear fruit just like they are bearing fruit. By sharing your life and the light of Jesus thru your gift be it writing or working with children or being an astronaut, fruit comes from these seemingly natural things.  It’s a lot like Jesus.  When Jesus was here he looked like a man, but He was so much more.  He was and is THE TREE OF LIFE and as He is so are we in this world. The words and attitudes of grace we share and display are fruit for your family and your co-workers and others to partake of so that they can taste The Father’s goodness thru Jesus.

The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit. Proverbs 15:4 NIV

The New Testament admonishes us to let our speech always be seasoned with GRACE, undeserved, unmerited favor towards all people. When we do this it provides healing to others and they don’t forget it.  We don’t want to crush our family members spirits or other people’s. Words are powerful. More powerful than a nuclear bomb and twice as destructive.  Words start wars, murders and all types of conflict but faith words nourish and comfort.  So determine to be a tree of life just like Jesus. That is what he purposed for you to do.  Don’t be afraid to move out on that God-given dream because it will be a tree of life to you and to others. Shalom!!!

All the “blessed” to you! Shalom!!!
