Shinchonji-The true identity of the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

Untitled1

What is the tree of life and what is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? What do their branches, leaves, and fruit represent? What about the birds that come and perch in each tree?

A tree represents a pastor. Thus, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil symbolize a pastor who belongs to God and a pastor who belongs to the devil, respectively. Branches symbolize workers who belong to each tree (i.e. pastor), and leaves represent people who belong to each pastor’s group. The fruit of each tree symbolizes those who are evangelized and born again of the word from each group. Finally, the birds that perch in each tree symbolize spirits. Holy spirits perch upon the tree of life; evil spirits descend upon the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

The word of God is compared to the seed of life in Jn 1:1-4 and Lk 8:11. The tree that comes from the seed of life sown into a field, which refers to a person’s heart (1Co 3:9), is the tree of life. Next, the birds of heaven (holy spirit Mt 3:16) come down to this tree—this is the kingdom of heaven (Mt 13:31-32).

In contrast, the tree that comes from the weed that the devil has sown is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The birds perching in this tree represent the evil spirits; its fruit represents those who are evangelized and born of the seeds (teachings) of the evil spirits.

The fruit of the tree of life are those who are born of the truth (Jas 1:18). The fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, on the other hand, are those who are born of the words of the devil. The words of each pastor form each fruit. Depending on the words they receive, people become the sons of God or the sons of the devil (Mt 13:24, 36-39). This is why hearing and accepting the words of the sons of God, who are born of God’s seed, is the same as eating the fruit of the tree of life. On the other hand, hearing and accepting the words of the sons of the devil, who are born of the seed of the devil, is the same as eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It is written that anyone who eats of the tree of life will live eternally (Gn 3:22); the spirit of anyone who eats of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil will surely die (Gn 2:17).

When and where exactly do the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil appear at the time of Revelation? Who are they?

The true identity of the nation of Spiritual Babylon—including the beast with seven heads and ten horns that belongs to the prostitute in Rv 16 and that destroys the tabernacle of heaven in Rv 13—is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil at the time of Revelation. The name “Babylon” from the Old Testament is used as a metaphor in Revelation to refer to the kingdom of demons. Nebuchadnezzar, once King of Babylon, is compared to a great tree in Dn 4:20-22. This great tree is, in fact, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Since the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil symbolizes Satan’s wicked words, the spirit of anyone who eats it will die. According to Rv 18, this tree of the knowledge of good and evil has deceived all nations. When all nations have gone astray, the 144,000 of the twelve tribes at Mt. Zion (Rv 7, 14) attain salvation and are sealed by receiving the testimony of the one who overcomes. The one who overcomes has united with Jesus, the tree of life (Jn 14:6, 15:1-7). Furthermore, the one who overcomes and his testimony become today’s tree and fruit of life. Whoever hears and eats this fruit (i. e. the words of Jesus through the one who overcomes) will live forever.
