There is only one way to the Tree of Life. Notice that “the way” in Genesis 3:24 is singular. The flaming sword that goes every which way guarding the Tree of Life has many dimensions to it. The Cherubim welding the flaming sword is a picture of you and I taking on our cherubic nature. Taking on our cherubic nature is basically becoming exactly like Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and joining Him in oneness with our Beautiful Heavenly Father. This is us actualizing returning to our pristine, primordial state like Adam and Eve were in the Garden east of Eden before The Fall, except better, redeemed. Our perfected Cherubic State (or Cherubic Nature) is how man was created in the beginning: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (Genesis 1:26 KJV).
Since we were originally created in God’s own image, that’s where we are returning to in the restoration of all things. When sons of men fully attain the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, as sons of God, we become just like Yeshua. These are the only ones that will be manifestly united in oneness with the Father and the Son as they are one … in the Oneness Metatron Matrix – Heavenly One New Man in the Messiah – Metatron.
When you and I take on our cherubic nature, we resonate at the frequency of the Word of God that upholds all things (Heb. 1:3). It’s not a coincidence that Messiah Yeshua is called the Word of God, which is the sword of the Spirit (Rev. 19:13; Eph. 6:17). A common theme with the Word of God in Scripture is fire, as in the All-Consuming Fire:
“His WORD was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones” (Jeremiah 20:8 NKJV).
“And this WORD, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptable with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:27-29 KJV).
If you truly want to connect to the Tree of Life, you can not bypass the Messiah’s flaming sword east of the Garden of Eden, which in another dimension is Christ’s Cross. Many people try different ways. They even try to bypass the Cross where we are supposed to daily deny ourselves, take up our cross and follow Him (Matt. 16:24-26; Luke 9:23). Know that the Satanic Tree of Life bypasses Christ’s Cross where one dies to their own sinful nature in order to be co-crucified in union with Christ where resurrection life is firm (Gal. 2:20; Phil. 3:10; Col. 1:24).
The pure, holy and true flaming sword of the Spirit prevents anything other than the righteous Word of God (Messiah) connection to the Tree of Life. It also prevents anyone other than those perfectly aligned with His righteousness, holiness and truth from welding His flaming sword; and thus, gaining entrance to the Tree of Life.
The Way to the Tree of Life concept is also illustrated in the phrase “east of Eden.” The Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for Eden is made up of the Hebrew Living Letters: ayin, dalet, and noon. Two Hebrew words are hidden within “Eden.” One is ayin (see) and dalet-noon (judge), which means to see the Judge. The other is ayin-dalet (eternal) and noon (life) – eternal life. Therefore, the Ancient Hebrew Word Picture for Eden communicates that one must see the Judge (The Door of Life) to have access to eternal life (your cherubic nature where this mortality taking on immortality).
As lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27). East of Gan Eden speaks of the heavenly position of having to see the Judge Yeshua (James 5:9) before one gets access to the Tree of Life (i.e., eternal life on this earth). “Seeing the Judge” is simply another way to say deny yourself daily, take up your cross, and follow Yeshua. This is The Way – the only way – to the Tree of Life.
