Grace for you today !
Behold Jesus the Resurrection and Life and experience His Everlasting Life !
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—” I John 1:1-2 NKJV
What Adam received from God was the ‘breath of life’ and not ‘eternal life’. If he had received eternal life, he wouldn’t have died.
Adam and Eve were on probation. God wanted to see whether they would obey Him?
Alas ! They didn’t. The net result was that sin and death controlled men and the original intent of God that Man should live forever was thwarted.
Interestingly, two trees were placed in the midst of the garden of Eden and both were trees of knowledge- the Knowledge of good and evil and the knowledge of God ( Tree of life ). Had Adam and Eve chosen the knowledge of God which is the tree of life , they would have lived forever. But, rather they chose the tree of knowledge of good and evil and allowed death.
Praise be to God who didn’t give up on man. He sent His Son Jesus that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life . What man gained was much more than what he lost . Hallelujah! Praise God !! Amen 🙏
Praise Jesus !
