In the timeless beginning, God created heaven and earth. Earth was dark and was covered with water. Earth was the prison for Satan because he wanted to replace God.
God let the sun shine upon earth. God produced plants, animals, fish and humans. Satan lied to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and they believed him. God removed the couple from the garden because they “ate” from the tree of death. They could no more eat from the Tree of Life. They both died several years later, after they had raised a family.
God told Adam to sacrifice a sinless animal once yearly to cover the sins of his family. Some of Adam’s descendants did the yearly sacrifice the next 2,000 years. God allowed the Levi priests to do the animal sacrifice the next 1,500 years. Then God provided a new “Tree of Life” that is accessible to everyone on earth that believes they need God to forgive them of their own sins. Scripture says all the above and that all persons that partake of this Tree of Life will be saved from going to hell that God created for the devil and his angels.
