God the Father created us through Jesus' hands, then men fell. Now God wants us to return home, come back into Him through His Son Jesus Christ.
This whole idea of returning home to God the Father is found in all of the Bible. Jesus began His ministry by telling His disciples, "Come follow Me". Jesus also said that He was the door and that no one can come to the Father, but through Him.
Mankind was banished from the garden and access to the tree of Life. The following examples show the same story, only from a little different example.
Kingdom of god vs the kingdom of this world
John 3:7 "Do not marvel that I (Jesus) said to you, You must be born again."
Most Christians have heard, read, and even quoted the expression "You must be born again". Until I started reading the New Testament in the original Greek language, I used to quote it that way too. But here's what I saw - The word again here is the Greek word anothen, not palin. Palin is the principal word for again (found 142x) in the Greek, anothen (ανωθεν) means something very different in some ways you might find very interesting.
We are now going to introduce to you the preposition ana (ανα) which means up. The Greek says "You must be born Up"
John 8:23 "He (Jesus) said to them, 'you are from below, I Am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.'
In Hosea 7:16 it says "They turn, but not upward."
We must be born up
(See this illustration further expanded below.)
John 8:23 "He (Jesus) said to them, 'you are from below, I Am from above.
