ownership of the Garden of Eden. God disallowed thistarget because also plantedin the Garden of Eden wasanother tree, “The Tree of Life.” If Satan could havegotten control of the Gardenof Eden, and the fallenhumans had eaten from thetree, he would have fulfilledhis original desire to be likeGod and rule over a peopleliving forever!Every false religion issearching for the Tree of Life. If they can only find it,says Satan, they will liveforever!Gen 2:9, --
“And out of theground made the LordGod to grow every treethat is pleasant to thesight, and good for food;the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
KJVGod told Adam, that he could eat from every tree with the exception of the tree of knowledge of good and evil for in the day that he ate, he would die! Gen. 2:17.The Serpent had a great victory when Adam and Eve rebelled against God. He hadthe souls of humans and now he wanted their land. God instantly moved and drovethem out of the Garden; placing an Angel at the gate.
EVERY FALSE RELIGION HAS THESYMBOL OF THE TREE OF LIFE
