The Cherubim Sword

11 Oct

The Cherubim Sword…

After the fall of man, it is written that the Lord stationed cherubim with a flaming sword to guard the way of the Tree of Life. What does that mean?

Most people think it means the cherubim and sword are there to prevent anyone from approaching the Tree of Life. There is truth to this, but it’s not the final truth. It also means that you can approach the Tree of Life, but only if you walk through the cherubim and the sword.

The only way to eternal life is through the sword, through dying. When Jesus opened up the way to life, He did so by passing through the flaming sword–through death, through judgment, through the cross.

So the cross is the sword of the cherubim! If you want to partake of the Tree of Life and all the blessings thereof, follow Jesus. Pass through the sword, the cross; die to yourself and let go of your old life.

Because the cross isn’t an end, it’s a beginning that opens up the way to peace, hope, and joy. The way of the cross is access to the Tree of Life!

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. Luke 9:23

Follow Jesus through the sword of the cherubim. Follow the way of God, even when it means the dying of the flesh, the ego, and the old man – and you’ll find life on the other side.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
