All throughout history, it has been generally made clear, even by the Jews themselves, that Jesus was real and walked on this earth. Now many will unfortunately question the God given divinity of Jesus Christ, but that is a different objection.<br><br>Here was a fabulous video confirming, historically, without Biblical sources, that Jesus Christ was/is real:<br><br><a href=>Jesus Christ Is Real! ~ Non-biblical Evidence Of His Existence - YouTube</a><br><br><iframe width="480" height="360" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br><br>Wikipedia has a whole section on this coined, <i>"<a href=>Historicity of Jesus</a>."<br></i><br><br>God bless.<br><br><i>Historical Proof of Jesus Christ</i>.

That said though, as many of you know, a tree is not what we worship. And did you notice the amount of trinkets and seemingly superstitious charms that people were hanging on and around the tree? Heck, maybe if it really was 2,000 years old, it may be worth visiting for historical and even perhaps spiritual reasons. Yet this tree was from 1952 !<br><br>From the link above -<br>"<i>Yesterday he recalled watching a tree being planted on Wearyall Hill in 1951 for the Festival of Britain. Although that specimen died, it was replaced the following year and stood firm until this week.</i>"<br><br><br>They took bits of roots from the original thorn tree, so it is said, over the years before 51' so that they could re-plant. Once again, it is terrible that one would purposefully destroy that tree, especially since it meant so much to the community. Trees do have of course great importance and more than just producing the oxygen we breathe.<br><br><br>Trees are very symbolic and often used in the Bible.<br>For instance, the "<i>tree of life</i>":</font><br><br>"<i>The tree of life is mentioned in the Book of Genesis; it is often considered distinct from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. After Adam and Eve fell from God's favour by eating fruit from the tree of knowledge, they were cast out of the Garden of Eden. Remaining in the garden, however, was the tree of life. To prevent access to this tree in future, two cherubs with a flaming sword were placed at the garden's entrance. (Genesis 3:22-24)</i>"<br>(Wikipedia)<br><br><font size="3">And then of course this, on the new earth (and new heaven) which God promises in Revelations:</font><br><br>"<i>In addition to the Hebrew Bible verses mentioned above, the tree of life is symbolically described in the Book of Revelation as having curing properties: "the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." (Revelation 22:1-2)</i>"<br>(Wikipedia - <a class="bburl" href=></a>)<br><br><font size="3">It mentions the "<a class="bburl" href=>water of life</a>" above. On that note, here was a very interesting 1.5 hour documentary on water which has some interesting perspectives. We surely take for granted water and this is perhaps a grave mistake, for more reasons than just environmental (I do not agree with everything in this film, but a lot to consider for sure)-<br><br><font size="3"><b>Water - The Great Mystery</b></font><br><a class="bburl" href=""></a><br><br>There is no denying that water is key for God and our faith. After all, baptism is by water and many key scriptures from the Bible on this substance, such as:<br><br><i>John 7:38</i><br>"<b>Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.</b>" (NIV)<br><br>Like us humans, made in God's image, trees are generally made up of more than 60% water as well. Let that sink in, no pun intended, for a minute or two.<br><br>For sure vandalism and killing a living tree is not good, nor is polluting our watersheds and waterways. For as long as our history goes back we have been fighting against those that do not respect nature and thus the Creator. I am much more concerned though about the <i>water of life</i> and the <i>tree of life</i>, yet alone the <i><a href=>Book of Life</a></i>, for that is where we can find eternity with God through his son Jesus.</font> Sat, 11 Dec 2010 18:05:14 +0000 First Verse in Bible, Genesis 1:1 Reveals Amazing Revelation John 1:1 A friend once said to me, during my earlier years of discovering who God really was and just how precise His Word is, the following: <i>If Genesis 1:1, the first sentence in the Holy Scriptures is not true, then you can write-off the entire Bible as a historical book with political gains at best.</i> Naturally, through study, one sees that The Word should be taken word-for-word as fact.
