You know how, as you’re reading the Bible, sometimes you skim over parts of it as you’re focusing on another aspect?
So this morning I’m reading, and there’s Genesis 3.24: So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
And I got to thinking about those angels guarding the east of the garden of Eden, and the flaming sword.
Have those angels been hanging around since Adam and Eve left, flashing that sword any time someone comes near?
Or do battles rage there? Do Satan’s armies fiercely want entrance, do they want humans to be able to enter, so that maybe someone could eat of that Tree of Life? There has never been an immortal sinner. Praise God, He did not let us eat of that Tree of Life, and condemn ourselves to eternity in our flesh.
These are the things that wander about in my head sometimes…
