Example text

We fear that we haven’t succeeded. We judge ourselves and measure ourselves according to the benchmark of the Law to determine whether we are succeeding or failing. Even in our everyday lives we are affected by this. One example is the workplace, where we are constantly monitored on whether we are doing well enough. Much of our ambition and striving comes out of this. We are driven to be ‘good enough,’ to be ‘right,’ to be ‘excellent’. Where does the Tree of Knowledge originate? It is crucial to know where the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil has originated.

How did she know that the Christian life was not really about right and wrong, good or bad, or having it all together and doing the right thing? It is so simple. The Tree of Life is about love that covers all the things that we spend so long examining the moral value of. If you love you cannot go wrong. When we commune with the Father the eyes of our hearts are opened again. The eyes that were closed when mankind took of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil will be closed again and the eyes of our hearts will be opened again so that we can eat freely from the Tree of Life.

If they don’t hear it, it simply means that they can’t hear it. Revelation is not something that can be forced down a person’s throat. Knowledge can, but revelation is either grasped or it isn’t. A person either gets a revelation or they don’t. It is as simple as that. As we have come to experience the love of the Father our perspective on many things is changing. One of these things, for example, is that the centrality of the heart becomes an issue of fundamental importance. When you are not experiencing love, all that you possess is mostly knowledge.
