The River of Life
1And he showed me #Ps. 46:4Ezek. 47:1(Zech. 14:8)a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2#Ezek. 47:12In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was #Gen. 2:9(Rev. 2:7Ge 22:1419)the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were #Rev. 21:24for the healing of the nations. 3And #Zech. 14:11there shall be no more curse, #Ezek. 48:35but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His #Rev. 7:15servants shall serve Him. 4#(Ps. 17:15|NoBook| 42:2Matt. 5:81 Cor. 13:121 John 3:2)They shall see His face, and #Rev. 14:1His name shall be on their foreheads. 5#Is. 60:19Rev. 21:23There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor #Rev. 7:15light of the sun, for #Ps. 36:9the Lord God gives them light. #Dan. 7:1827Matt. 19:28(Rom. 5:17)2 Tim. 2:12Rev. 20:4And they shall reign forever and ever.
The Time Is Near
6Then he said to me, #Rev. 19:9“These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy prophets #Rev. 1:1sent His angel to show His servants the things which must #Heb. 10:37shortly take place.
7#(Rev. 3:11)“Behold, I am coming quickly! #Rev. 1:3Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
8Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, #Rev. 19:10I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.
9Then he said to me, #Rev. 19:10“See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” 10#Dan. 8:26Rev. 10:4And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, #Rev. 1:3for the time is at hand. 11He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Jesus Testifies to the Churches
12“And behold, I am coming quickly, and #Is. 40:10|NoBook| 62:11My reward is with Me, #Rev. 20:12to give to every one according to his work. 13#Is. 41:4I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
14#Dan. 12:12(1 John 3:24)Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right #(Prov. 11:30)Rev. 2:7to the tree of life, #Rev. 21:27and may enter through the gates into the city. 15But #Matt. 8:121 Cor. 6:9Gal. 5:19Col. 3:6Rev. 21:8outside are #Deut. 23:18Matt. 7:6Phil. 3:2dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
16#Rev. 1:1“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. #2 Sam. 7:12Is. 9:7Jer. 23:5Rev. 5:5I am the Root and the Offspring of David, #Num. 24:17Luke 1:782 Pet. 1:19the Bright and Morning Star.”
17And the Spirit and #(Rev. 21:2the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” #Is. 55:1Rev. 21:6And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
A Warning
18For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: #Deut. 4:2De 12:32Prov. 30:6If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, #Ex. 32:33God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
I Am Coming Quickly
20He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
