Life was in the garden of Eden and remained. It was man who was removed from access to Life. Jesus is that River, that Life. When we are planted by Him to access Him then we are beginning to eat of Him so that we will never die.
"...And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." John 11:26
"For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will." John 5:21
"...Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." John 7:37-38
"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God." Rev 2:7
"And we desire that every one of you do show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises." Heb 6:11-12
