And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there he put the man whom he had formed. 

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. And the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 

And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. (Genesis 2: 8-9, 15-17)

The ever-increasing spate of strange and sudden deaths is becoming alarming in our society today. These happen to Christians as well and some think it is the will of God.

 That is the lie of the enemy, but the church is ignorant of this. What you do not know is what can kill you. The enemy of the church today is ignorance. We have become too familiar with God and because of that more truths are hidden from us. 

 God appeared unto Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by the name of God Almighty in the account Exodus 6:3, but unto Moses by the name of Jehovah.

 Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew God to a certain level but Moses got to know Him on a much higher level of truth. Revelation is progressive. God is the same at all times; He changes not, but the knowledge of Him comes by revelation of his word.

Death is not the only appointed or God's only prescribed means to go to heaven.

As a Christian, nothing on this earth and in the demonic realm should be able to kill you before God's own appointed time.

By our foundation text above, the first man and woman ( Adam and Eve ) were forbidden from eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God said they will die if they ate of that tree. To die here came from the Hebrew word, 'Muth' meaning to kill, or bring to death. It also means separation from God both spiritually and physically. Death came as a result of man's first act of disobedience to God's specific instruction to abstain from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil which was in the midst of the garden.

It was not God's desire for man to die.


Heavenly Father, I declare by your word today that death is not my portion. The root of death is canceled because I have been translated into the Kingdom of your dear son Jesus Christ. Amen
