The recurring number in the text, whether through symbol or literal number, is 3. The tree represents the number three and resurrection as well as the third spirit of Adonai, etzah, or counsel in English. The seeds and trees bearing fruit were created on the Third Day of Creation. A tree in Hebrew is etz. It’s no coincidence that the Spirit of Counsel and trees share the same root. Both symbolize resurrection. The Spirit of Counsel is not so much about GIVING advice, but to “meekly RECEIVE the implanted Word of God.” (Ja 1:21) If never, received, then Counsel will not sprout, a real roadblock to resurrection.
