Amazing Tree of Life Pendants
We design and create tree pendants as our signature line of jewelry. These pendants embrace our personality, natural and free flowing. In nature, the tree is strong, tall and majestic…yet it yields a sweet melody as the wind softly caresses its leaves in the night air.
Moreover, many of our customers look beyond the tree’s outward beauty and strength, focusing more inwardly toward a deeper spiritual meaning as they comment on the infamous “Tree of Life” referenced in the Bible. Hence, we wanted to take this opportunity to expound on this mysterious tree’s beginning, meaning and purpose.
The Mystery Behind the Tree of Life
And it was so…
God created the heavens and the earth and all living things and placed the man and the woman (the first couple) in paradise, a place on Earth called the Garden of Eden. At this point, man had dominion over all things in Eden and he had a promise from God of eternal life, with just one condition! Read on…
God placed two trees in Eden: the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the infamous tree of life. God told Adam, the very first man, he could eat of all trees, including the tree of life, but not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. However, Adam and his wife, Eve, took of the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil and, from this point forward, sin entered into paradise and to the whole world. Hence, God’s initial promise of eternal life to mankind had been compromised!
Adam’s sinful act, which lead to total separation from God, had to be remedied. God quickly removed Adam from Eden and placed an angelic warrior, a Cherubim, to guard the way to the tree of life. Why? The tree of life gave eternal life to Adam and Eve. The couple would feast on its fruit, before they sinned, drawing from its eternal life source—much like the mystical and desired fountain of youth. But God could no longer allow them to eat from this tree. For if they continued to eat of its life-giving bounty, the couple would live eternally in a corrupt and dying and immoral world, which goes against God’s original intention for mankind.
Thus, God provided an alternate plan, more miraculous than Eden’s tree of life…and much more costly. What, you ask, is this new plan? From the moment Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, God placed a barrier, an immovable force, that separated man from God—the cherubim with a flaming sword. God kept this barrier intact through various means for thousands of years until the alternate plan, the living tree of life entered into the world through the birth of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Savoir, the Kings of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the very Son of God.
Now, mankind, once again, through Jesus Christ can take hold of the tree of life and have eternal life throughout all the ages. But how do you take hold of Jesus Christ? Simply believe that Jesus is the true Son of God, commit yourself to turn from those things that are not pleasing to a holy God, and accept that He died and shed His life-giving blood for your bad thoughts and deeds. Sounds simple, you might say. Right? Yes…but not really…in your heart it has to be genuine, as any truth or as any true love or commitment has to be.
Would you ask God today to help you believe in and to take hold of the living Tree of Life, Jesus Christ?
