The Torah, the Bible, the Tree of Life—God’s Word is a set of instructions for everyone who wants to live a victorious, joyful, and abundant life.
Etz Chaim explains a parable relating to the Tree of Life that the Lord spoke to the author—a Messianic Rabbi. The parable opens wide the unique components of the Word and the physical Tree of Life that is introduced in Genesis and again in Revelation.
The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life… (Genesis 2:9).
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7).
The parable reveals seven aspects of the Tree of Life: The ground. The seed. The roots. The trunk. The branches. The leaves. The fruit.
Each of these components brings seven life-changing conclusions to light that stimulate spiritual growth and maturity. The simple yet profound image is powerful and compels you to into self-examination to assure your spiritual health and growth in each of the areas God wanted the author to share with you.
