But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Genesis 2:17 KJV
There is a popular scripture in the Bible that states that faith comes by hearing and hearing by a Word about Christ. In some translations it says the Word of God but the actual translation is a word about Messiah Who is Christ. That is a principle and it works not just for the Word of God but for other things. When a person attends a church where the minister talks or ministers continually on sin, the people there will have faith for sin and a sin consciousness. They will more then likely be more focused and aware of their sins then they will the finished work of Christ. I want you to think about something. Pay close attention to what this scripture says from God our Father.
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Hebrews 8:12 KJV
So in this scripture Poppa, our Father says our sins and iniquities He will remember no more. Is that what it says? Then why do many preachers and churches constantly focus on and bring up people’s sins? It appears the Father says He is doing one thing and the minister is doing something else. I am not condemning anyone I am simply relaying what the Word of God is saying. The tree of the knowledge of good & evil is a representation of The Law or the ten commandments which New Testament believers are not under. When a person puts themselves under the law they also put themselves back under the curse which Christ has redeemed them from. Paul warned us not to allow ANYONE, preacher, brother or anyone to do this to us thru wrong false teaching or doctrine.
Take heed lest there will be anyone taking you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the principles of the world and not according to Christ. Colossians 2:8 Berean Literal Bible
Living by the law and false doctrine is still today eating from the knowledge of good and evil. The knowledge of good and evil is just as dangerous as sin. This is why the Father said don’t eat from it. We must learn to partake from the tree of life Who is JESUS!!! He told us what He came to give.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 KJV
Talk about Christ and His finished work. Talk about the life He has given you which is His Life. This will breathe life into your life and keep you away from sin consciousness. When God the Father raised up Jesus from the dead, He raised us up together with Him and so we have the same LIFE Jesus has. Its His Life that we now enjoy, His health, His riches in glory.
All the blessed to you!! Shalom!!!
