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.
"water of life" = vitality. It's an eternal substance. Our Father loves us and shows us The Way to life in this flesh and life in the new one.
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.
We partake of Christ today and forever. His fruits = actions gives life every second of everyday. 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.
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:
There will no longer be any cursed thing = evil people or things. Only those that love God will be alive at this time.
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Remember when we went through the mark of the beast? Deception is in theirs minds and Truth is in yours. "Foreheads" = minds. If Christ Jesus isn't in your mind daily, it leaves itself open to the evil of the world and satans tricks. Get in The Word and stay in it EVERYDAY! Time is fast approaching when satan will be here and if you don't have The Truth locked in, you're in danger of following satan all the way to the end.
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.
He continues to provide our needs forever.
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.
Our Father has given us the things that must happen in this, The Last Generation and the rewards to come to those that love Him.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
He has given us the season He is coming in and the events to look for. Get the armor on and get ready folks. We are at war and evils leader is coming.
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.
John was "before" = in front of an angel and should never bow down before anyone but God. Yet so many are about to do this very thing with satan. This Book has given us many warnings just as more of God's Word with the coming of satan and his deceptions throughout time. The world is ripe with ignorance of God's Word even while many call themselves "Christians" and know nothing of what is or what is to come.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
The angel is saying "Don't worship me, worship God". We that serve God are equal in all the gifts we serve Him in. We that hold to The Truth serve a wonderful Father. One that shows His love equally and justly deserving of whatever may come to each of us accordingly.
10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
As time goes so fast, we see this angel telling John not to seal these things up because they are for us to know today. This generation! If you were born around 1948, you are the last generation to see all things come to pass. A Generation = 40, 70 and 120 Take your pick! 40 has past and 2018 is 70, 7 meaning Spiritual Completeness. 70 = Universality, Israel and her Restoration.
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.
As the time of satans deceptions grow, focus more on strengthening yourself with The Truth as to battle him the day he arrives. Don't let those that refuse The Truth overtake your focus. If they chose the worldly ways over Truth, let them have at it. There are many out there that hunger to hear The Truth of God's Word. Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
When God comes, our works will be judged. What we believe in separates us from the world today, what we do separates us from the world tomorrow.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
So many contemplate the meaning of what is not important when everything they [need] to know is already given. God IS and always will 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.
Follow God and be blessed by life in the new world age to come. Don't and you won't. The garden doesn't have weeds as to be the best for the rest.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Without following The Commandments of God, you are like these.
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.
Question is, is your church teaching you what Christ Jesus has told us throughout His letter to us, The Bible? Today, I'm sure very few have heard. They are too busy "teaching" about salvation and tithing. The rest is their own words with a few verses they think relate to their story's. Would you know if your being feed God's Word or mans? Is that warm fuzzy feeling you feel when you walk out of a building on Saturday or Sunday of God or the world? You should walk out feeling an urgency to change your life. You should come out thinking about going home and seeking more on what was taught.
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.
Our Father and those that follow Him want everyone to come to The Truth. Those that do can ONLY come through Christ. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
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:
One that many add today is "rapture" and they will be punished for it. If your "pastor" is teaching it, straighten them out on it. There are many things being twisted into the way of the world, instead of The Ways of God. His Word is given for us to follow and humans are destroying what is in love. They are putting people in bondage and trying to erase Truth. The "new bibles" are junk! Everything from the niv on. Beware!
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.
Keep The Truth of His coming and His commandments or not. It's up to each of us to check everything out. Don't take anyone's word for anything. In today's world most of all. Like never before has there been so many lies and twisting of things. WAKE UP!
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
This will be the seventh and the last testimony Christ Jesus gives us, "Surely I come quickly". READY? If not, then please do something about it today. Your tomorrow may not be.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Grace = unmerited favor of God given to us all freely. We must claim the promises of God's Word which gives us our salvation.
