Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
  • Ezekiel 47 shows us that this water is going to flow equally to all twelve gates.
  • This shows the fairness with which God will feed His people
  • Mark 12:27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
  • Remember this tree of life was planted in the Garden of Eden.
  • He put cherubim's there to guard it.
  • Luke 23:31 We know that, Christ is the tree. Because only Gods gives life.
  • The fruit are for the enjoyment of Israel who dwell within the new city.
  • The leaves are for the healing of the nations both in and out of the city.
  • Ezekiel 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
  • We know that sickness was done away with in Revelation 21:4
  • So, here we see a divine provision for preserving joy and fulfillment
  • Which is never boring or even coming near boredom throughout all eternity
  • Nations = Gentiles
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
  • Zechariah 14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
  • His name shall be in their foreheads
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
  • The Messiah and the saints reign for a thousand years.
  • Here we see God reign for ever and ever
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
  • He showed us all this so we would know what is going to happen.
  • When it is going to happen. And what His servants must do.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
  • Whereas, in verse 6 the angel is speaking. We see in verse 7 that Christ, Himself, is giving a very personal message to the elect. When viewed in conjunction with Revelation 3:11
  • We understand that by keeping and doing prophecy, You keep or retain the crown you have earned.
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
  • This is the point where John was returned to his own age time frame, which was about 80 A.D.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
  • We see here that Christ meant in the parable of the laborers in His vineyard
  • Matthew 20:12 says that they were paid equally regardless of what time they called to work.
  • Thus, all Israel, resurrected to the immortal soul, This Is equal and become one family
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
  • He never intended us to be blind to the knowledge of the book.
11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
  • After having a peek at the new world age where there is no pain, this verse jars us back into this earth age.
  • In which Christ was crucified
  • And even to this time when Christian nations resemble Sodom and Gomorrah.
  • May God hasten the day of the new age.
  • See that you are righteous and do His Holy work
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
  • I come quickly; and my reward is with me, To give every man according as to, His work shall be.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
  • The city mentioned in verse 14 could not be the heavenly city.
  • Because at that time the sinners of verse 15 will have been cast into the lake of fire.
  • It is obviously the millennial city or camp of the saints.
  • Which is surrounded by Satan's army Revelation 20:9
  • In this verse this is Christ's last warning that, He is the Messiah, the root and offspring of David.
  • As foretold by the prophets that He, and He alone, is the bright and morning star.
  • Lucifer, which is the Hebrew word #1966
  • Which means ''bright star'', only claims to be Messiah
  • But in fact is Satan, the leader of the army outside the millennial city.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
  • John has come back to the earth from heaven to deliver a message that extends from John's time to the consummation of the kingdom wedding.
  • The word ''bride'' in Greek means ''Young wife'' or even ''betrothed''.
  • How can he equate the Spirit, which is the Holy Spirit with the bride?
  • The spirit speaks through the bride (His Wife) to call all to His wedding.
  • How precious is His charge and it is through love and understanding she returns her commitment.
  • The spirit is Jesus and the bride is the holy elect.
  • The bride is not the whole house of Israel
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
  • If any man shall add unto these things. God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
  •  If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy. God shall take away his part out of the book of life. And out of the holy city. And from the things which are written in this book.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
  • There is so much knowledge in this book.
  • Each and every person, who is studying it, should take their concordances and Bible and search more and more, thereby learning even more about the book of Revelation than is already know.
  • Remember His words:
  • II Timothy 2:15 ''Study to show thyself approved unto God''.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
