ART by: Kelly Johnson ~ Painter of LIFE # 33
My inspiration for this painting came from my curiosity of the Tree of LIFE. I ponder the story of Adam and Eve and their disobedience to their Creator. At that point in time they didn't have a story to follow. They made a huge mistake by not listening to what God had spoken to them and great discord came from that lesson to them.
Today we get to read the story and see the outcome, and we still disobey the commands of our Creator just as Eve did in the beginning and Adam followed and we are still following today. I wonder why we still disobey?
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 knowledge of good and evil.
In the Hebrew Bible the tree of life is symbolically described
in the Book of Revelation as having curing properties:
"the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city.
On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit,
yielding its fruit every month.
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations."
