Revelation Chapters 1,
2, 3, 4,
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.
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.
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.
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:
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
We know that sickness was done away
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
4 And they shall see his
face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Zechariah 14:11 And men shall dwell in
it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem
shall be safely inhabited.
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.
His name shall be in their
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.
The Messiah and the saints reign
for a thousand years.
Here we see God reign for ever and
7 Behold, I come
quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy
of this book.
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.
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.
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
We understand that by keeping and
doing prophecy, You keep or retain the crown you
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.
This is the point where John was
returned to his own age time frame, which was about 80 A.D.
he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this
book: for the time is at hand.
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
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.
He never intended us to be blind to
the knowledge of the book.
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my
reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall
After having a peek at the new
world age where there is no pain, this verse jars us back into this
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
See that you are righteous and do
His Holy work
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,
the first and the last.
I come quickly; and my reward is
with me, To give every man according as to, His work shall be.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Which means ''bright star'', only
claims to be Messiah
But in fact is Satan, the leader of
the army outside the millennial city.
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:
- John has come back to the earth from heaven to deliver a
message that extends from John's time to the consummation of the
- 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
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 add unto these
things. God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come
quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
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.
21 The grace of
our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
There is so much knowledge in this
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''.
