Scientists Create Life
"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 forever. 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" - (Gen.3:22,24).
News - May 20, 2010 - "Scientists create artificial life. They have produced a living cell powered by man-made DNA. It is evoking images of Frankenstein-like scientific tinkering."
Yes, evil, sinful man, who has been gorging himself from the tree of knowledge for the last 6000 years since Adam, and especially the last century, is now reaching his filthy, polluted hands into the tree of life, and is playing God the creator of life. There are portents for great evil as well as good. What horrors will come creeping out of the test tube like Dr. Moreau. For good or evil, creating life is no longer the prerogative of God. Unlike H-bombs, is that once created, they can breed themselves. The stuff of dreams and nightmares has arrived. A Rubicon has been crossed.
Satan, the nemesis of Genesis, and the great enemy of God and truth and righteousness, who is seen in (Gen.3) tempting Eve to eat from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil and commit the first sin, has now tempted man to use his knowledge to eat from the tree of life. Man has now put forth his hand to eat from the tree of life and conquer death and achieve immortality.
But God has placed His cherubim at the tree of life with a revolving flaming sword as a sentry to prevent this from happening. And the cherubim is God's masterpiece of created life, the greatest of living creatures, and Satan was one - (Ezk.28:14-18). The cherubim has the appearance of a man, and have four faces, four wings, and four hands under their wings. They have the faces of a man, lion, ox, and an eagle. They also have four wheels. The cherubim represents all of God's living creatures that He created in heaven and on earth. God placed this most complex of all His living creatures, guarding the tree of life, warning man that he must never play God with his sinful, wicked heart and create life - (Ezk.1 and 10). "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the reins, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings" - (Jer.17:9, 10). And man eating the fruit of the tree of life is the most evil of all. It will lead to wicked, sinful man living forever. Only God's holy saints will live forever.
Evil scientists, man's great eaters of the tree of knowledge, have invented our weapons of warfare that now include H-bombs that can burn up and destroy the earth in one hour. And soon God will allow wicked man to do exactly that because man is now playing God and creating life, and soon the flaming sword of His cherubim will fall upon us in a fiery Armageddon at the second coming of Christ. "...when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ “- (2 Th.1:7,8). Evil scientists want to know everything forbidden by God, and don't want to know God and His truth in His beloved Son.
Christ is the one and only way back to the tree of life. Eternal life is only through Him and His atoning blood on the tree for our sins. He died as our sacrifice for sins on the tree of death, that we could be saved and partake of the tree of life. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father, but by me" - (Jn.14:6). Again - "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life; and this life is in his son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath no the Son of God hath not life" - (I Jn.5:11,12). Do not put your faith in sinful scientists eating from the forbidden tree of knowledge as the way to eternal life. Place your faith in God's Son who only is the way to everlasting life.
You must be spiritually born again before you die in order to receive a new eternal body and eternal life. You must become a new born again child of God the Father, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, which is your earnest of eternal life. Jesus said, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again" - (Jn.3:6,7). Repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith, and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell, and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. Having your sins forgiven by Christ on the tree cross will give you the right to eat from the tree of eternal life. "And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations" - (Rev.22:1,2). Be healed in your soull: be saved by Christ. Be indwelt by the Holy Spirit and live forever. We are to be soul winners, preaching salvation and righteousness through Christ, who is the tree of life - "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise" - (Prov.11:30).
