 A Message From Peter James


The Two Trees


Genesis 2: 9  And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight,

and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good

and evil.

15  And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it

and to keep it.

16  And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest

freely eat:

17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that

thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.


In Genesis we are clearly told that there were two trees in the garden.

We are not told that one tree was an apple tree as is popularly suggested.


Although these were probably two literal trees, we can be certain that there was great

significance beyond two physical trees.


One tree was The Tree of Life and the other tree was The Tree of ~eath, which was called The Tree

of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. We can say that it was the tree of death because if you ate

from it you died. Adam and Eve found this out and so have we their descendants.


Christians tend to think that there were two trees, one of which was good and the other

which was evil and we should eat of the good tree.

This is not the case at all.

The knowledge of good and evil both came from the same tree.

This has been a monumental problem for us for thousands of years.


Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant

to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat,

and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.


I have been saying for a very long time that I feel that the most subtle and dangerous part

of the tree for Christians is the ‘good’ part.

Most people everywhere know for example that it is wrong to kill.


Although the tree was a mixture of good and evil, we are told that

It was good for food.

It was pleasant to the eyes.

It was to be desired to make wise.


Many seek out knowledge which seems good, pleasant and desirable.

When they make the tragic mistake of eating this forbidden fruit, they will later on, some times

many years later, find out that like a fish on a line, they have been truly hooked and caught.

They will find that no amount of thrashing about dislodges the hook.


Subtle mind control is eventually replaced by blatant arrogance, control and manipulation.

There is no logic or reasoned argument, or scripture which can be quoted to cut through

this Gordian knot.

This is so successful that there is only one possible way to be extricated from this.

It requires deliverance is by Jesus Christ.


Many churches whether true or false boast vigorously and promote their superior knowledge.

Some produce so many books every month and have so many meetings,

that it would be impossible to read everything, even if you did nothing else.

One such group is the Recovery Church.


Many groups have secret knowledge which separates you from the rest of the herd.

The Roman Catholic Church, the Freemasons, Mormons and the Kabbalists to mention four.

All these mentioned have nothing whatsoever to do with the Eternal God.

In fact they are opposed to Him. 


In many professions there is a secret language to hide the facts from the ‘laymen’.

Can you work your way through the jargon of ‘Computer Experts’, and the various trades?

The order of the day is that we make things as complicated as possible and withhold as much

information as we can. This is wrong.

Genuine Christians are happy to share their knowledge.

They do not have secrets.

Anytime some thing is made clear to me. I am bursting to share it with everyone else.

One minister of one of the churches mentioned said that as long as he could read a couple

of books more than the membership, he was ok, as he was ahead of the game.

What a sad situation.

It is also an untruth. 

Our relationship with Christ is not dependant on the number of books which we read.

Of course we should read the bible and other helpful material, but at the end of the day

we have to listen to what the Eternal God tells us and obey it, whether we read books or not.


It is because of the quest for secret knowledge, and therefore power that the Far Eastern religions,

the Occult Kabbalist religion, and Freemasonry are popular.


Unfortunately today most Christians still get caught in the quest for better, or secret knowledge,

which they think will give them salvation.


They do not know of the simplicity of the Gospel and that Salvation is a free gift.


2 Corinthians 11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty,

so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.


Ephesians 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:


Grace is absolutely free.

Gifts are free.

Most churches refuse to accept that obedience is a requirement.


I get letters from Pastors who say that they can see what I am saying, but they enjoy

what they are doing so they will continue doing what they are doing and,

keep Christmas etc., because they enjoy it. Such is the deception.

The matter of obedience to the Eternal God is neither mentioned nor considered.


I have others who openly state that they are told lies and they are distressed by this,

and by the direction which their church is taking, but never the less they cannot leave it.

Such is the effect of mind control.


Sometimes we have been given specific Rhema, that is, messages for individuals or churches.

This is usually greeted with outright hostility.

None seems to take the time to consult with the Eternal to see if what we are saying is true.

Joseph Tkaatch Jr, of Worldwide Church of God rebuked me strongly and told me that what I said

was not only wrong it was from the enemy.


We told him that his organization would fall apart, until not one stone was left on another.

The reality is that this is precisely what has and is happening.

The numbers and finances have been greatly diminished and confusion throughout the organization

is the order of the day. The church is going through the process of changing its name.

All this does is prove exactly what we have said.

When it changes its name it will cease to exist.

In spite of this members hang on to this dying corpse with all their might, awaiting the miracle

of resurrection of this organization.

It will never happen.


One small congregation which took a negative stance against us has also ceased to exist.


Another small group the Norton Christian Fellowship was also told to repent or they would also

disappear. They threatened us with a court case rather than repentance. They now no longer exist.


The simple message that we gave these groups, as we were told, was repent and turn to Christ,

give up control and manipulation of their congregations, that is all.


We are telling these things so that it can be seen that when you are deceived it is very difficult

indeed to come out of the deception, unless one humbles oneself admits error, repents,

listens to and obeys the leading of the Holy Spirit.


All of us, and there are no exceptions have to be delivered out of deception.


Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,

which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


Admitting that we are wrong is one of the hardest pills for us to swallow,

but the reality is we have not only to swallow it, but we also have to digest it,

repent and take remedial action.


When you eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you will truly die.

Adam died when he was 930 years old.

He did not make it to 1,000 which represents one day.


2 Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord

as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


We can also be certain that if we eat of this tree of the knowledge of good and evil,

we will also die spiritually, unless we repent. The more we eat the quicker we will die.

Unfortunately most Christians do not realize this as they die a little more each day.


Many times we have stated that the Freemasons and Jesuits have infiltrated most churches.

They infect the organisations like incurable viruses and parasites attack unhealthy bodies.

The hosts never even suspect that they are infected.

The members are as if they are hypnotized.


Like the frog which calmly stays in the pan of water which is gradually very slowly is made to boil.

They do exactly that. Eventually without realizing it, the frog dies boiled to death.

They stay in situ until the little bit of life in them is literally sucked out of them.


Herbert Armstrong of the world wide Church Of God took doctrines from the Jehovah's Witnesses,

the Mormons, Adventism, and Church of God 7th Day.)

We have stated many times that Jehovah Witness and Mormons are not Christians and that they

have freemason and/or witchcraft links.

WCOG has now put itself under the umbrella of the Freemason offspring of the Evangelical Alliance.

Why did Herbert Armstrong wear Jewish "Star of David" cuff-links?

Why does the WCOG today promote Chuck Colson, Roman Catholicism, and the environmental movement?

Is the Vatican's Order of the Jesuits, working with Jewish interests, in the driver's seat?

Are the WCOG and the Seventh Day Adventist General Conference in league with Freemasonry?

Are all of these groups and others uniting now to launch a last days assault on true Christianity?


It is impossible to be blessed if you have one foot in the enemy’s camp.

Many are not aware that this is their position and for this reason we are making it very clear.

If you are associated with a Satanic organization you cannot expect the blessings of the Eternal.


Deuteronomy 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy

God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these

curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee………..


Leviticus 26:15  And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will

not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

16  I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the

burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain,

for your enemies shall eat it.

17  And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall

reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.


We are giving all this background in order to make a point.

When you are rebellious, regardless of how much you read the bible and go to ‘meetings’,

you are rebellious and you will pay the price.

You will be blind and deceived. However, it gets much worse than that.


2 Thessalonians 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs

and lying wonders,

10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received

not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


It is impossible to break through the strong delusion which the Eternal puts on the rebellious.

I have many friends in some of the churches mentioned above.

All that can be done is to pray for them. Anything else is pointless.

I also remember that there but for the grace of God go I.


The very good news is that besides the tree of Death, which is none other than

Satan, there is the wonderful tree of Life. This is none other than Christ, Himself.

That is the choice that Adam and Eve should have made and we should make the very same choice.

They should have chosen Christ.

We must choose Christ.


John 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,

but by me.


This is what the gospel is all about.

This is the good news.

We have to choose Christ.


I believe that after Christ had made Adam and Eve, He appeared to them as just a normal average human

being with nothing for anyone to desire Him.


Isaiah 53:2  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground:

he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.


I believe that Lucifer/Satan appeared to them in all his splendour as an angel of light.


2 Corinthians 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.


They were deceived by the lies and the packaging.

The very same thing happens to us today in relationships, we all tend to get caught by the packaging

and it is only some time later when the actual spirit in the person really appears that we are shocked

and say such things as “this is not the person I married”.

Is it not the same when we buy goods?

Do the pre-cooked meals look as appetizing as the it appears on the package?

Do the garments look as nice as they appear on the models on the package?

Does the food inside a tin bear any resemblance to the contents of the tin?


The packaging of the tree of knowledge of good and evil was excellent.

We must never forget that.


It was good for food.

It was pleasant to the eyes.

It was to be desired to make wise.


What can you do to those around you who you know are trapped in the Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil.

Do not try to argue them into submission it will not work.

Instead I suggest that you pray that the spirits of deception and strong delusion are bound and that

they leave their hapless victims and that the Spirit of Truth then fills the resulting vacuum.

As we keep saying with our closing remarks:


The only way out of our dilemmas is Jesus Christ.

         He is the only way of escape.

                 Praise the Lord.

          Come soon Lord Jesus.
