Faith & Doctrine
As instructed in John 16:13, interaction with the Spirit of truth is required in order to receive the revelatory truth of God that inspires genuine faith responses to the truth, promises, and commands of the Lord. What is presented herein is the fruit of obedience to this “guidance” and “confirmation” by the Spirit of truth.
As a volitional creation, Adam could have chosen to eat the fruit of the Tree of Life, but he didn’t. The ultimate consequence for him and for all mankind was disastrous. Those who are born again believers in Jesus Christ have the same choice to make today. Will we eat from the tree that is Christ so that we glorify Him, or will we eat from the tree of our flesh, the world, and Satan, so that we unknowingly glorify the flesh, the world, and Satan?
