Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








The Trees of The Bible



Genesis

The Temptation and Fall of Man

1. Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2. And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3. but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
4. Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. 7. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. 8. And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
9. Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?”
10. So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.”
11. And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?”
12. Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”
13. And the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
14. So the LORD God said to the serpent:
“ Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.

15. And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
16. To the woman He said:
“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”
17. Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
“ Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.

18. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.

19. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”

20. And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
21. Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.
22. Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23. therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Abba, Father Who Art in Heaven,
Blessed Be Your Holy Name!
How we love to sing Your praises,
To Lift Up Your Holy Name in Worship,
For You Alone are Worthy of Praise.
For You are Holy, Righteous and Just,
And Glorious in Majesty!
You Alone Are The One True God.
Perfect in All Your Ways
Ancient of Days,
King of Kings,
And Lord of Lords!

Father, forgive us for doubting Your Word,
Forgive us for even entertaining the lies of the enemy of our souls!
Forgive us for thinking we can be "gods"!
And forgive us for not taking responsibility for our actions,
Blaming others for our sin,
And trying to vainly "Cover Up".
Lead us not into temptation,
And deliver us from evil!

We Pray For The Swift and Sure Coming of Messiah,
Blessed Be He,
To Establish His Kingdom,
and Make All Things Right.


Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






Good Morning!
Today We Begin a New Study, where we will discuss a recurring theme throughout the Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Bible. The Recurring Image is a Tree, Large Plant, a Bush or Branch, or Wood.

From the Very beginning of the Torah, the theme presents Itself.

The First Tree mentioned in the Garden is The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. We do not Know why God forbade Adam and Eve this Knowledge, except perhaps to give them the opportunity to CHOOSE Whom they would serve...God or the evil one. It is not so much the loss of Innocence that was the Tragedy. It was the CHOICE that was made to disobey.

The next Tree in the Garden was the Fig Tree. This is the Tree that Adam and Eve stripped leaves from in a vain attempt to cover their own sin. As we look further into Scripture, we will see the Fig Tree again. It is a Symbol of The Physical Israel. It is also a Symbol of prosperity (Figs are VERY Rich!). The Leaves of the Fig Tree look like the Hebrew letter "Shin" which is the First Sound in "Shaddai" One of the oldest Names of God. The Fig leaves, were, of course, inadequate to cover Adam and Eve's transgression, and God had to shed blood to provide skins for them as clothing.

The Third Tree, guarded by the Cherubim, is the Tree of Life. The Symbol of the Tree of Life is VERY Popular in Judaism, and is the Leading Symbol in the Zohar and Other Ancient Jewish Books and Art. We will not see much of the Tree of Life again until we get to Revelation.

Come and Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation.

And here we see God Himself make the first recorded animal sacrifice to "cover" man's sin (nakedness and shame), a tradition He commanded the Jews to follow until He could put in place the ultimate sacrifice to cover all sins!

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant Israeli Nation!






"AND THE LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.

Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.

So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."

Lifting up Israel, the Fig Tree, and all God’s people.

May we become this tree -
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Psalm 1:3
