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.


Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.



Hallelujah and Amen

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."

Amen, left that other site

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
