Tree of Life


Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.        – John 14:6

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, the following verses were given in the context of Tree of Life from the Book of Life (The Holy Bible-KJV).

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.  – Gen 2:9

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 for ever:  – Gen 3:22

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 3:24

She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her:
and happy is every one that retaineth her.  – Prov 3:18 (13. Happy  is the man  that findeth wisdom, and the man  that getteth understanding. )

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.  – Prov 11:30

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick:
but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.  – Prov 13:12

A wholesome tongue is a tree of life:
but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.  – Prov 15:4

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;
To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,
which is in the midst of the paradise of God.  – Rev 2:7

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 22:2

Blessed are they that do his commandments,
that they may have right to the tree of life,
and may enter in through the gates into the city.  – Rev 22:14
