When the scriptures say ‘eat’ in certain instances, like in the instance of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and eating the flesh of Jesus, it means the same thing as when it talks about ‘living by’, like in the instance of living by faith, or they that keep the law shall live by it.
So, when Jesus talks about eating His flesh, He means living by His flesh, which is living by the word, for Jesus is the word made flesh. And when the scripture talks about eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, it means living by the knowledge of what worked and what didn’t work in the past. So, assuming a person tried doing something, and it didn’t turn out as planned, which is ‘evil’. They become aware of what didn’t work, their actions being the tree that produced the knowledge of ‘evil’ which is the fruit of their actions in that particular situation.
Now, if they face a similar situation, or a situation that has something to do with that former experience, and if they approach this present situation with the conviction that what didn’t work the last time, will not work this time, or that what worked the last time will work this time as well, they are eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they are living by what they learnt through observation. And that kind of life gets you cut off from the life of God, you die, you become unable to see by faith what God wants to do, or is doing at the moment. For it is only by faith you can please God, which means, it is only by faith that one can walk in agreement with God to bring divine intentions into physical manifestation on earth. What pleases God is Christ, the manifestation of His word. For it is written, this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.
(YOU ARE AS CHRIST IS. Ephesians 2:13-16, Galatians 2:18-20)
