I want to paste one of the several essays i have written on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, then I will go on to explain more on the topic above.
THE TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL (PART 4).

The first time I spoke about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil I used the following example. Let us say you were living in your mother’s house with your friends in a vision. In the vision four of you were living in the house, you in your mother’s bedroom, your best friend in the corridor, not in the bedroom but very close to it. The other two people are a married couple, a pastor and his wife, and they were in the parlour. There was something like a bottle of wine in the fridge in the parlour, and you in an intoxicated manner wanted to take of the wine, but the married couple in a frenzied state and manner warned you vehemently not to do so, and one could take this command has having come from God Himself. The pastor and his wife are “deliverance” ministers and all of you excluding, or should I say probably excluding the pastor’s wife, have all had a particular health problem, but only the pastor was now healed from this problem.
Apart from the vision, your mother seeing that you had no job had counselled you to work for the pastor and his wife in their ministry. Also, the pastor and his wife are from the eastern parts of your country, but not from the eastern part of the same country where a girl came of whom you had an affair, and which triggered your health problem.
Eventually you did not take this wine and you returned to your mother’s bedroom only for your best friend to shout and call your name and say “do not worry, this two people understand themselves.”
So I have gone into a lengthy description of this vision. Now let us use this example to describe what the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is. That wine bottle that you should not take represents a counterfeit of the blood of Jesus which was shed for you, just as the food of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil represents (going by the Bible), the transgression and iniquity that Adam must not commit so that sin would not enter into the world.
That bottle of wine represents also a sort of idolatry, for had you taken it, it would have meant you subscribed to the doctrine of demons which that wine represents, which is that you needed deliverance even though Christ had already delivered you by dying and shedding his blood for your sins, and that meant you had sexual dealings with the devil himself , which is actually typified by the married couple in the parlour.
You living in your mother’s bedroom actually typified you are a “son of God” also, a type of Adam. That your friends were living in your mother’s house with you, made them friends of God, and not sons, therefore they were not a type of Adam (compare Genesis 5: 1-5).
The wine also represents the alliance you should never make or the covenant you should never come into. For in the church of this pastor and his wife is a girl who would like to marry you, but whom you should never marry, as this would lead to your death if you did. The pastor and his wife squinting their eyes in the vision while warning you not to take the wine, meant your wife was somewhere else where this other pastor had squinted eyes.
Also the pastor and his wife coming from a particular part of the eastern region in your country meant they were part of your east, which is a representation of the Garden of Eden, the garden being planted in the east of Eden. So to have had an affair with a girl from the east, but not from that part of the east of the pastor and his wife, meant you “derailed” from your east, you erred, a sort of sin which caused your sickness. To get back to your Eden again you have to have an affair with someone from the tribe of your mother, which is a type of Christ (this was why you were staying in your mother’s room in the vision). This woman represents a Eve, a life giver, which is also a representation of Christ, Christ being the mother of all living. Eve and the mother of all living, as I have said many times before, are separate entities in the Bible.
So the wine also represents a position you should not take when called to office in your countr, lest you die.
So with the vision of the wine bottle, this is the interpretation of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. First of all Adam was not the first human being but the first to be in the image OR likeness of God among “his race.” There were other human beings living at his time. So the married couple in the parlour could also be his “garden of Eden.” He strayed away from his “east” by marrying a girl from the east of his nation who was not from his particular east and thereby sinned and became sick, that is, the original sin is actually of Adam, that is why sin is reckoned through Adam.
Now God warned him not to take from a particular tree (in this case typified by the tree of the knowledge of good and evil). The only difference between the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the fact that the tree of knowledge of good evil had wisdom, apart from the fact that both were good for food and pleasant to the eyes. You should never use your wisdom, but allow God to give you His wisdom in choosing a wife.
Why God told him not to take from this tree was that he should not use his “own wisdom,” because Jesus had provided a way for him out of “his sickness” through the tree of life. The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil are one and the same, but the tree of life becomes the tree of the knowledge of good and evil with man’s wisdom. So God told him, if he went his way with “his wisdom,” he would eventually die from his “sickness.”
So with his wife (Ishah, woman) also having the same problem, the woman also convinced him to “eat” from this tree by using her wisdom, so in a sense the woman was also a type of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil herself, and a representation of the devil, for she was good for food, pleasant to the eyes, and one that could make one wise, contrasted from Jesus Christ who is the tree of life, and good for food, and only leads to life. By following the advice of the woman, they both eventually died.
Both did not recover from their “sickness” and they eventually died for they did not believe the provision of God made for them, Christ, the tree of life. They believed they could get deliverance by another means apart from the method of God which was tantamount to subscribing to the doctrine of demons.
I have many times used the symbol typified by a house to explain the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Above I used the example of a "son" living in a house, living in his mother's house. Actually a member of a family is one in which they (the members) are your friends, and you all live in the same "house," under the same "mother," like Adam in Genesis (he called the name of his wife Eve, for she was the mother of all living.)
In the example I said the "son" was not to take of the bottle of wine which represented a counterfeit of the blood of Christ. I also mentioned this meant he should not take of a particular doctrine. In this fourth and one of the final essays on the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, I will give yet a deeper explanation.
Assuming as I said in another explanation, Adam was not supposed to form an alliance with certain members of the tribes of his nation (the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (part 3). I also used the example of the bottle of wine there, in which God warned him through his friend in a vision, he should obey this command.
Now Jesus Christ is the one who gives us God's inheritance when we believe on his name. The children of Rechab, the Rechabites were warned by their parent not to drink wine, and when Jeremiah tried to make them do so, they refused, with the LORD eventually blessing them because of this, their obedience.
So imagine you are an Adam. Your mother had told you before she died not to take of your inheritance from your father because of the danger posed to you by the members of your family from your father's house. There was an election in your nation. In one case you and members of your house from your mother's house were in one camp (the family is polygamous), the members of of your family (your father's house, who hate you vehemently) were in the opposing camp.
One of the politicians in your nation, who was a former President, a former head of state of the nation, and whom God had told you in another vision is your friend, declares and tells the nation they should vote for a particular candidate in the presidential elections. This candidate is of the opposing camp, those of the members of your father's family. He said this to confuse the electorate, so that the candidate who belongs to your own party might have the upper hand over his arch enemy in the elections, someone who belongs to a third party, by taking votes away from him in his constituency. Now, God had told you the former President is your friend, as I said earlier. So you either believed God, and voted for the one of your mother, or you are deceived and vote for the one of your father.
Also one of your senior half brothers on your father's house, out of hatred for your ascending success in life, had gone and sold the portion of the land which belonged to you, your part of the inheritance from your father, doing so in a manner with others so they might use their mischievous powers to bring you down, and cause your death.
Again, you were about to make a choice of a wife, and you felt you had to have all your inheritance firmly intact, and in your hands, and you tried to tried to pursue the inheritance given you of your father. But earlier God had told you not to worry, you and your wife would understand yourselves, you would speak the same "language," Christ.
This is then the explanation of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, using the example of a wine bottle instead of the fruit of a tree. The wine represents the inheritance given you of your father which would lead you to your death, or destruction in a way. The tree of life is the instruction from God by your mother you should not take of your father's inheritance (just like the Rechabites were given instruction by their father in the Bible, the word of God). This was before you had attained to the bedroom status with God, your mother's bedroom.
Your actual inheritance is the inheritance from your mother who had passed on to be with Christ (Adam called the name of his wife Eve, for she was the mother of all living). She is the mother of all living because you would also get a wife like your mother who would make sure all your infertility were a thing of the past (spiritual, physical, etc).
So Adam, the son in the house was to let go of the inheritance of his father's house, and that of his mother's house, and cleave unto his wife, through the inheritance of Christ his spiritual mother, the mother of all living. So shall a man leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they both shall become one flesh, The Bible says. They both have inheritance in God through Christ. They are both, Adam and his wife, the bone of the bones of Christ, and the flesh of his flesh.
He, Adam, should not take of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he should not take of the inheritance of his father's house before he reached the bedroom status, also he should not vote for the candidate espoused by the "crafty" former head of state, the former president, a form representing Satan, though the head of state is not Satan. So we can now understand why the serpent spoke in the account in Genesis. If he did so, his enemies would have a upper hand in the nation, and over him, since God had told him to have dominion, whomever he chose would eventually dominate the nation. He would eventually die if he did so. He, Adam, is the son over a house, God would bring his wife to him.
The story of Adam and Eve, also had to do with inheritance, the inheritance of every Adam in Christ. So shall a man leave his father and mother, and be joined to his wife, and they both shall become one flesh. The inheritance of Christ makes both of them one flesh.
The tree of life is for our spiritual healing. The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil were in the midst of the garden, in the garden of Eden. The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, can be thought of, as two entities juxtaposed.
Man that detours from his east, suffers at the exterior. The east of every man is the Christ, just as the west. Now God does not want us to take from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, before we take from the tree of life. Actually, God planted both trees, in the garden of Eden, in the Bible. The power for our physical healing resides in the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, after we have taken from the tree of life, God planted both trees.
So after taking from the doctrine of the pastor from the east of the world, the power for the physical healing of the son, resides in the church of the pastor, from the east of his country. The tree of the knowledge of good and evil is the bone of our bones and the flesh of our flesh.
