I Am Life
I have more I want to share with you about God breathing into Adam the breath of life. Genesis 2:7
In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
Please notice, He did not say, I am a way, a truth, or a way of life, but THE way, THE truth, THE life. The One who breathed life into Adam is the only sustainer of that life. When God’s breath leaves, what situation does that leave the man? Now, he becomes devoid of life. All humanity is dependent on the breath of the life-giver. There is only one way, one truth, and one life, and it is Jesus alone! His existence, through the Holy Spirit on earth, is the only reason we live.
Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 Amplified Bible
Earnestly remember your Creator before the silver cord [of life] is broken, or the golden bowl is crushed, or the pitcher at the fountain is shattered, and the wheel at the cistern is crushed; then the dust [out of which God made man’s body] will return to the earth as it was, and the Spirit will return to God who gave it. Chapter 1:11 in Ecclesiastes says, There is no remembrance of earlier things; And also of the later things which will occur, There will be for them no remembrance among those who will come.
Three monumental things took place when God created man.
Because God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost made man in their image, man’s DNA could come from no other source than from God. God’s DNA.
When God breathed life into Adam’s nostrils, he became a living soul. The Almighty’s breath.
Our first parents could partake from the tree of life.
When sin entered, humanity lost these gifts. Being born again in Christ reinstated them. We can visibly verify the miracle-working power of God in the human heart when transformed again into a child of the Father. Without these gifts,
humanity no longer carries the likeness of the God-head.
We are doomed to death without living breath,
We are under the control of evil himself and have no means to counteract his influence without the tree of life
4 Jesus answered by quoting Deuteronomy: “It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”
The Bible is a revelation of Jesus. His words feed us, hold us up, and solidify our standing with Himself. Every word that proceeds from the mouth of God becomes our tree of life here on earth. His words sustain our hearts and minds until He comes again. On that day, when He sounds the trumpet, He will take us away from evil into His glory.
Considering the necessity of God’s presence for life brings into question the doctrine of burning in hell forever. Hell is a place of death. The author of life is not present in hell. How can a created being live forever where only sin exists, and the breath of life is missing?
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God and evil, like the parable of the wheat and tares, only co-exist till Jesus comes. Then the tares are rooted up and burned; the wheat remains. The evil that separated God’s children had no source of life at that point. No Christ, no life.
John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of man.
