But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved , and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever.
Paul's exposition details the freedom that Christ purchased for us. I believe it was the same freedom that was offered in the beginning had Adam and Eve chosen to believe God and obey. It is obvious that the law was not for the purpose of restriction, but instead, it was for the unveiling of how God designed things to work, which is for our benefit, freedom, and fruitfulness.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free Against such there is no law. These instructions given by God aren't simply suggestions or good advice, these are the laws of life.
Our look at the usages of the tree of life three in Genesis, four in Proverbs, three in Revelation will point to some very interesting revelations concerning this natural physical existence, and the eternal. The four Proverbs mentions, being in the center of the three, will lead us to some valuable insight and application to the garden temptation narrative.
Four, in Biblical numerics, is the number that categorizes themes having to do with the natural created earthly realm which Proverbs will display. It also explains its practical, and sometimes disorderly, presentation. Three is the number that classifies spiritual heavenly things.
Bible Stories: Genesis Through Revelation | Pacific Hills Calvary Chapel
The tree of life's three mentions in relation to The Garden of Eden in Genesis reveals a tabernacle of heaven on the earth. It was a place where heaven and earth met. In Revelation, the tree of life, with its three mentions relative to the New Jerusalem, is portrayed as a spiritual city that comes down from heaven. This is relevant in terms of how, the tree of life and it's physical realm application in the book of Proverbs, with its four uses, are sandwiched between three eternal mentions on either side.
Heaven and earth will intersect at the juncture of Proverbs and the eternity we held in the beginning Genesis -Eden will "pass through" the natural realm of Proverbs to the other side in a Revelation eternity. The total number of occurrences of the tree of life, when added together, is ten. Ten in Bible numbers is associated with man's obligation of responsibility and loyalty to God as is exhibited in the ten commandments. It most frequently is accompanied by a test as we shall see in the garden experience.
Let's take a look at what this arrangement looks like in terms of all of the tree of life usages. Note as you read that the two outer sections of Genesis and Revelation occurrences are lettered according to their parallel matching themes which will be discussed and compared. A And out of the ground the Lord God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food.
The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life , and eat, and live forever. C So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. She wisdom is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who retain her. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life , And he who wins souls is wise.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick, But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life A wholesome tongue is a tree of life , But perverseness in it breaks the spirit. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life , which is in the midst of the Paradise of God. B In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month.
The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. C Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life , and may enter through the gates into the city.
When comparing the "A's of Genesis and Revelation, they both show us the granting of access to the tree of life. In the Genesis, "A", man had the choice to either eat from the tree of life, which is synonymous with trusting God Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Because they hated knowledge And did not choose the fear of the Lord, They would have none of my counsel And despised my every rebuke.
THE BOOK OF REVELATION OR THE APOCALYPSE
Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, And be filled to the full with their own fancies. Adam already knew God and had experienced good. Evil was the only extra dish on this table. Everything God made was good. This good tree was mixed with something sinister, evil, and poisonous. The bite of that particular choice of fruit contained enough toxin to paralyze the human race into a sinful state of decay and death.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. How interesting that the venom of a snake not only paralyzes but destroys the red blood cells of a person causing them to bleed to death both internally and externally wherever blood can escape. The Revelation "A" reveals that eating from the tree of life is synonymous with hearing and obeying what God has said.
Obedience is synonymous with faith. Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? Another commonality of these bookend themes concerns the tree of life's location as in both being in the middle. In Genesis, it is in the middle of the Garden.
In Revelation, it is in the middle of the Paradise of God. These combined themes of tree placement and eternity are practically described in a Psalm of David.
Notes and Commentary on Genesis 3
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever. Comparing the "B's"; In the Genesis event, man's right to the tree of life is broken. In Revelation it is healed. Comparing the "C's"; there are guarded entrances to both the garden in Genesis and the gates in Revelation.
