Deut. 30:15 KJV introduces us to Good and Evil, choices that God gives us to understand and make:
See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
Good in this verse leads to Life and Evil to death. They are the two choices that God gives us, choices we must make.
Understanding Good and Evil enables us to choose and scripture devotes much attention to helping do it. We cannot make a choice that does not lead to one or the other. Genesis 2:9 KJV introduces us to Good and Evil by making reference to two trees, one being the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil:
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.
This tree is Satan and The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is a title that he has earned. He earned the “Good” portion of this title guarding God’s Throne when he was the archangel Lucifer and the “Evil” portion” was earned when he became Satan and turned against God.
Through Adam and Eve, Genesis 2:17 KJV warns us not to eat of this tree as it represents the partaking of Satan’s offerings:
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.
Eating or partaking of Satan’s offerings brings “Death” to us, a spiritual death that following Satan brings about. Genesis 3:5 KJV shows that eating thereof opens eyes to Satan and Good and Evil:
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.
A capitol “G” in scripture represents God, our maker and little “g” references Satan and his little gods, things that take the place of God, things that separate us from God.
Suffering this spiritual death is avoidable as Genesis 3:22 KJV tells that in addition to the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil, there is a second tree, The Tree of Life (God) the Tree that extends its branches to us:
And the Lord God said, 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 for ever:
Eating or partaking of The Tree of Life is eating and living forever; we know of it as Eternal Life; Ezekiel 5:17
