Genesis 2:9 speaks of this knowledge.
9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also (a different kind of tree from those above) in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; (talking of natural trees)
17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."
Now we see their fall in Genesis 3:3-6.
3 but of the fruit (knowledge) of the tree (of good and evil) which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
4 Then the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die (the lie)
5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." (able to choose for yourself what is good or bad and not bother to seek the mind of God)
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food (food for thought), that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit (knowledge her intellect would now be based from) and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate (she would be wise and not need God or so she thought)
6 " The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them (the animals will no longer eat each other)
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra's hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper's den (the animal kingdom will be in harmony with us)
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, (here is why) for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. (So we see that there will eventually come a time when man will choose knowledge from the correct tree, the Tree of Life, bringing restoration.)
22 Then the LORD God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever" (It is knowledge from the Tree of Life that gives us eternal life.)
23 therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken.
24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
30 Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.
And in verse 33 we read:
33 And He (Jesus) will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end."
1 In the beginning was the Word (truth), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
II Corinthians 5:19 shows us why the Word was sent to earth.
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Jesus explained in John 3:3,
3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Peter explained further in Acts 2:38,
38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (not the titles Father, Son, Holy Spirit) for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.
7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, "Look, are not all these who speak Galileans?
8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born?
Let us read Galatians 3:29
29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Wow! Is this not exciting?)
Now let us look at Romans 4:13.
13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world (read that again!) was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
