Many people ask why would God plant a tree or a vine in the garden of Eden that would be Adam and Eve’s downfall and deceive mankind. The simple answer is, God did not plant the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Who Really Wants People to Fall into Sin?
The tree planted to deceive mankind is first spoken of in Genesis 3:1-24. Many people ask why would God plant a tree or a vine in the garden of Eden that would be Adam and Eve’s downfall. The simple answer is, God did not plant the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Further information about the tree is spoken of in the Hebrew text of 3 Baruch 4:8-9,
… And I said, I pray thee show me which is the tree which led Adam astray. ” It is the vine, which the angel Sammael (a fallen angel) planted, whereat the Lord God was angry, and He cursed him and his plant, while also on this account He did not permit Adam to touch it, and therefore the devil being envious deceived him through his vine.”
The devil is envious of Adam. He was supposed to serve Adam who is the image of God. But Satan and the fallen angels wanted man to serve them.
Why use texts outside the Bible?
The traditional spiritual leaders in high places have these additional Hebrew texts that they keep hidden away behind locked doors. They keep the information away from us because an ignorant population is easier to deceive. Look at the condition of the world today. Many people have fallen away from worshiping the true God and others worship Satan out of ignorance thinking that they are worshiping the true God
The fallen ones have thrown us a rope they historically and are now using to hang us with.
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil account describes the promise that the tree would make man like God knowing good and evil. It is true that there is good that can come from knowledge. But, since the knowledge came from the fallen ones there is evil that comes upon mankind from the use of it. Has knowledge and technology without The Most High’s direction made things better? People are more sick, both spiritually and physically, than ever and the earth is being destroyed. This is the reason The Most High God warned Adam to stay away from the tree.
