To be lawless is to be lifeless

Lawlessness is a risk. To be lawless is to be lifeless. When God created Adam, He put him in the garden and gave him a law. Adam could eat from the tree of life(Names of the 3 trees in the garden of Eden). But God didn’t allow him to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis.2:16-17; NIV)

Adam and Eve broke the law, and God sent them out of the place – disobedience displaced them – (Genesis.3:22-24).

No country without its own law. If you run away from Nigeria to another country, you’ll escape the laws of Nigeria to embrace another set of new laws in the country that you’re going.

Many lives are without boundaries. Many ministries are operating without laws, and anything goes.

For instance, in the school of marriage: No amount of prayer and fasting that will make your marriage to work except you subscribe to the laws of the scripture. Husbands are to love their wives. Wives are to submit to their husbands (Ephesians.5:22-25). The scripture can’t break.

In ministries, your ministry can’t grow until you subscribe to the law of church growth (the law of word impact). “For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.” (Mathew. 24:28). This is why you must sit at your work to receive the word that blesses your congregation from God. We need to understand the place of the law to maximize our destinies. Set boundaries around your life. Create and obey laws.

    1. The scriptures that talk about the 3 trees of eden are: Genesis.2:9 & Genesis.3:7. The trees are: a) the tree of life b) the tree of the knowledge of good and evil c). The fig tree. I hope that helps. God bless you🏵


  1. Genesis 3: 7 speaks of Adam and Eve covering themselves with fig leaves. I believe that fig trees were amongst the trees they were allowed to eat from freely. Mentioning as a specific 3rd tree does not seem relevant to the passage.

    1. I agreed with you. I think it was based on the fact that the fig leaves would have come from a fig tree. But, the scripture does not mention a fig tree precisely. Thanks for your useful contribution. God bless you🏵


  2. 24:26 do not believe them . No one should consider the claims of self-styled messiahs because all of them are false. When Christ returns, no one will miss it (vv. 27 , 28 ). † 24:28 there the vultures will gather. The location of a carcass is visible from great distances because of the circling carrion birds overhead (cf. Job 39:27–30 ). Similarly, Christ’s return will be clearly evident to all near and far. The same point is made by the lightning in v. 27 . The vulture-dead body imagery here also speaks of the judgment that will accompany His return ( Rev 19:21 ).
