Even so come Lord Jesus Part One
Hi good friends out there in internet land. I have reviewed the first eight chapters in the book of Revelation in a very detailed way giving the readers many cross references to each verse but due to time and the fact that I must move on to other writing projects in the Bible the remaining chapters (Revelation chapters 9-22) will be completely quoted with some comments at the end of the chapter. I really do desire to cross reference every verse in these chapters but this would take me way to long thus leaving out other vital biblical studies that are also needed and desired to people that are very hungry for the word of God. There will still be many interesting insights after the chapter is quoted so please enjoy the rest of the study in this fascinating last book of the Bible.
(1) "And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the Lamb. (2) In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of 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 (3) And there shall ne no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him. (4) And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. (5) And there shall be no night there; neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall regain 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. (7) Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. (8) And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before his feet of the angel which shewed me these things. (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. (10) And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. (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. (12) And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as 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. (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. (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. (19) And if any man shall take away from the words of this 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. (21) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. A-men." Revelation 22: 1 - 21.
There will be a pure river of water of life coming down the middle of the street in the New Jerusalem. There will be trees and a different kind of fruit every month. The source of this river will come from the throne of God and the Lamb who sat on the throne. If everything is new in this city then this will be refreshing for the glory of God. "For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Spirit upon thy seed, and My blessing upon thine offspring: Isaiah 44:3. This river will not only be refreshing but it will renew the spirits of the redeemed for all eternity. (37) "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Je'sus stood and cried, saying, If any man thurst, let him come unto Me and drink. (38) He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (39) (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive: For the Ho'ly Ghost was not yet given: because that Je'sus was not yet glorified.)" John 7: 37 - 39. The Third Person in the Triune Godhead who is the Holy Spirit will still be very active in the lives of the redeemed throughout the annals of eternity.
God bless you, Bob D.
