We cannot see breath, but the moment you put your hand four inches apart from your mouth as you breathe into it, its manifestation cannot be denied – either by the smell or the feeling of steaminess on your hand as you cup it.

Pneuma.

As pneuma leaves the body, we return to the ground. Without it, we are dust.We live eternally, above or below because in us is the breath of God- extant apart from anyone’s acknowledgment.

There was one command. There were two choices.

“The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground–trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”

Genesis 2:9

There was the Tree of Life. It was not forbidden. It was there yet it became obscured because of deception.

Deception is powerful.
Deception was and continues to be humanity’s undoing.
Will you choose to free yourself from the curse?
The Tree of Life awaits.

“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”

Revelation 2:7
