Heavenly Family Tree of Life
On Earth as it is in Heaven
that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
Offering the seeds of fellowship
The seeds of fellowship in the Tree of Life are also referred to by Jesus as the keys to His kingdom. Jesus gives his church, represented by Peter, the authority to offer His truth to hearts bound by sin in a perishing world; if they receive this truth, they are set free indeed on earth as they are in heaven where they begin fellowship with Christ with God (Matt.16:18-19).
Receiving the seeds of fellowship
The words of the gospel are offered by the servants of Christ which are then used by the Holy Spirit to "knock" on the heart of sinners (Jn.16:7-11); imploring them to 'turn the key' (Rev 3:20) and dine with God with new hearts made alive to His living word.
On earth as it is in heaven
Jesus is the heavenly family tree of life in which believers are branches that bear fruit---having been grafted in by our obedience to the gospel (Rev.22:2,14,17).
I am the vine, you are the branches...John 15:5
