Tree of Knowledge

The world he saved

Was this world

The one we have created

The one we live in now

 

He put the knowledge

Of this world in a tree

The tree of knowledge

Of good and evil

 

The name of the tree tells us

That to have knowledge

We must know both

Good and evil

 

And for these two

To grow from

The same seed

Tells us

You cannot

Have one

Without the other

 

How is it

Good and evil

Grow together

In one tree

 

Everything we know now

Was in that tree

 

We are the gods

They wanted to be

 

Genesis 3:5

“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

 

Psalms 82:6

“I have said, Ye are gods…”

Thine Own Self

What you put
Into the world
Will return to you

As one who is sent
Returns to the one
Who sent him

And the one
Who sent him
Will receive
The one who
Returns to him

As his own self

 

St. John 14:3
“I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”

St. John 17:5
“And now, O’ Father, glorify me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”

 

Spirit of Truth

There is no secret
To attaining
Enlightenment

It is given to all
The Spirit of truth
That which has
Understanding
Of the truth

It is up to
Each individual
To realize that
And connect with
That Spirit
To save our life

St. John 14:17
“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but you know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.”

Adversary

Art: Virgin Mary, artist unknown

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place

 

And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world

 

Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine

 

The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary

 

David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world

 

We are either the hero

Or the adversary

 

If Christ is with us

Who can be against us

 

I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
