Three Trees

March 31, 2024 Easter Pastor Dan Wagner 0


  • God acts as High Priest, performs the first sin offering for man, and clothes man with the animal skin from the sacrificed animals, showing His character and nature in His desire to forgive sin and setting in motion the Plan of Salvation which already is “signed, sealed, and delivered” in the mind of God.
  • The tree of life always has been a part of God’s plan, but every natural-born human is stuck at the tree of the knowledge of good and evil—infected with Adam’s rebellion and separated from fellowship with God—destined for “the lake of fire that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
  • Anyone can claim to be Messiah, the Christ, the Savior, the God-Man. Anyone can lay down his life for another. Only taking up His life again proves that the sacrifice of Jesus actually pays the sin-debt!
  • Conclusion: Without the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ no one goes from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil beyond the cross of Jesus to obtain the tree of life.
