What is the Knowledge of Truth

What is the knowledge of truth?

Apostle Tracey Robinson

 

  • 2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 

The truth of the knowledge is: if I leave the Spirit of life, I’ll eat from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

I will have become as the serpent had said in 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.

In Genesis 2:17 God said to the man, But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Now God in fact had to acknowledge this truth in Genesis 3:22 by saying, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:

God knew that man had to be escorted from the garden, which is God’s presence so that his knowledge now of good and evil won’t cause him to sin anymore by trying to steal eternal life, be his own god, and live forever.

A tree is known by the fruit it produces.

Are you a good tree? Or are you a corrupt tree? Or are you a tree that has withered without fruit?

This is the knowledge of the truth of your life in salvation!

 

The Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil

Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 

What is an example of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil?

  • Our educational system

 

So Eve admired the trees of the garden so till it was not hard for her to be enticed by the serpent.

 

Proverbs 3:22 Wisdom refers herself to the tree of life. 22 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

 

Ezekiel 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

 

Revelation 2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

 

  • We that possess the life of the Tree of Life produce the fruit of life eternal on earth.
  • We that possess the life of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil produce the fruit unrighteousness, the works of the flesh Galatians 5:19-21, along with its lust, habits, practices, and sensuous desires.
  • All these things are of the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil!

 

How do we know who possesses what fruit from what tree? Jesus said in St Matthew 7:16-20 by their fruits you shall know them.

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

 

The Tree of Life represents your spiritual personal development, your uniqueness, and the beauty you possess in the strength of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.

  • What is the fruit of the Tree of Life?
  • The Spirit gives life, not only in this life but in the life to come
  • Righteousness, peace, joy in the Holy Ghost
  • The fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5: 22-23
  • The life of the fruit of the tree of life can be seen in you and upon you
  • The life of the fruit of the tree of life will cause those that are living by the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil to hate you
  • As you possess life, the good and the evil seek more knowledge.
  • The fruit of life don’t seek more knowledge because we have a relationship. This leads us to the Source and the Source teaches us.

 

The Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil represents the spiritual inwardness with sinful desires, struggling to give up you as a “god” in order to humble yourself to the Spirit of God in order to return to life. This inward struggle is sin in me!

  • The serpent really did not lie when he said to Eve that you shall become as “gods”.
  • This is where the problem lies within the Will of the spirit man submitting himself back to God.
  • These are the two choices we have: the knowledge of truth or the knowledge of good and evil.
  • We are going to choose to live one of them out, one way or the other.
  • This is why I always say there are no gray areas in salvation.
  • You will either serve God or Satan.
  • It is Heaven or Hell.
  • You are either hot or cold. Lukewarm is not acceptable!
  • You are either righteous or unrighteous.
  • The fruit of the knowledge of good and evil is “forever learning and never coming into the knowledge of the truth”. This is the fruit “ever learning”.
  • When you consider yourself as a god then the good in you tells you that you are good and don’t need God.
  • The Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil represents the Will of the flesh and believe that its fruit is morally good and its goodness will represent him before the Father.
  • The Tree of the knowledge of good and evil represents spiritual bondage that says, “for that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I”. Romans 7:15.
  • Romans 7:18 goes on to say, For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh), dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
  • This is that fruit from the knowledge of good and evil!
  • And the hardest part is to take down from the throne that I have established for self without God, to then allow God to become my God to guide, lead, and instruct my comings and goings.
  • The Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil produces selfishness as its fruit. This is why the so-called body of Christ is a selfish body that is not attached to it.
  • The Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil’s fruit is 2 Timothy 3:2-4, and the fruit is having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
  • There is no loyalty when you eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It started out in the garden when Adam sold Eve out to God by saying, “that woman you gave me”.

 

Here is the truth: Two gods cannot stay together! Only one can rein!

  • Who is going to worship who?
  • What god is going to take the reins and control?
  • What god are you serving?
  • Who is going to give the orders and you follow?
  • St Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God an mammon.
  • In this verse of scripture, mammon is personified.
  • Personified meaning it represents quality or concept by a figure in human form.
  • These days we are seeing a combination of the fruit of the trees, because men are so void of the Spirit they are living out of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
  • The seed sown by Adam and Eve is full grown in the hearts of mankind, meaning that the spirit man thinks that he can live his life his own way and by his own rule without God.
  • This is what’s making it so easy for Satan to influence a generation that will worship themselves; and make it hard to tell a generation that they need God.
  • We wonder why we wrestle with our children and their children and wonder why they don’t want God. IT’S BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE GOD!!!

 

Amen
