His cross has the history of trees in it; consider this. To take something which symbolizes the tree of Life (physical trees on earth), and to nail the actual Tree of Life to it, is a reversal of the hierarchy of symbols! The enemy of Life was saying that I will reverse the order–the material tree will be that on which The Eternal Tree will be killed. And Jesus submitted Himself to this apparent inversion in order to reveal the character of the True Tree-Himself. His enemy was saying the created can destroy the Creator. It is the enemy’s way to reverse the ranking of symbols to confuse the messages of God. God was saying I will submit to this forgery to show the true version of Myself through My Son. Only a few saw it at the time–what was, and is, the true mystery of His Way on His Cross.
