Food also gives life.....
Yes, knowledge is food, how it is digested (interpreted/translated) either brings life or brings death and when we speak of what we know (the knowledge we know) we either bring death or life to another.
I agree this is how the Tree of Life / firstfruits of the tree being the Wisdom of God would feed the inner man of God as the outward man of sin perishes daily
love 1 Corinth 15
1Cr 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead,
[and] become the firstfruits of them that sleptFor since by man [came] death,
by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order
: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
the seed in itself being the incorrptible Word of God , cannot be changed or corrupted
in the very begining we see it Gen 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, [and] the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed [is] in itself
, upon the earth: and it was so.
and how the tongue holds that power in these two verses , its not what goes into a man that defiles him its what comes out of the mouth ...
make the tree good and its fruit good or make the tree corrupt a tree is known by its fruit , the firstfruits of Jesus Christ are the way to the tree of Life always has been to me anyways
Gen 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden
, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
Pro 3:18 She [is] a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her
: and happy [is every one] that retaineth her.
Pro 11:30 The fruit of the righteous [is] a tree of life
; and he that winneth souls [is] wise.
Pro 15:4 A wholesome tongue [is] a tree of life
: but perverseness therein [is] a breach in the spirit.
Pro 18:21 Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue
: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
the fruit of death being of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and wages of sin
or the fruits in Christ who is the tree of Life
being the power and Wisdom of God
1Cr 1:24 But unto them which are called
, both Jews and Greeks
, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
love thinking on these things again , thanks for the reminder
