(In paradise)

Revelation 22)

1: And he showed me a river of living water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. (The the Throne of the great Priest-King [Zech. 6:13] of the "thousand years" now gives place to the glorious "throne of God and of the Lamb", for God now is "all in all". Contrast Ezek. 47:1-11, where the river proceeds from the "house" associated with the altar; here from the throne.)
2: In he midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, bearing twelve manner of fruits, yielding her fruit every month: and the leaves of the trees were for the healing of the nations. (It is difficult to capture the meaning from the Greek; however, the leaves from this tree prevent boredom and sadness. The palm tree is a type for the Tree of Life. The date palm is capable of sustaining life. Belief on Jesus Christ is capable of sustaining eternal life. He is capable of providing your every need. See Ezek. 47:12)
3: And there shall no longer be any accursed thing: and the throne of God and of His 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 any longer; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light (i.e. the Shekinah glory): and they shall reign for ever and ever. (cp. the reign of the saints with Messiah for 1,000 years and the reign here with God "for ever and ever".)

6: And he (i.e. the angel of 1:1) said to me, “These words are faithful and true (you can count on it): and the Lord the God of the spirits of the prophets sent His angel (= His Spirit) to show to His servants the things which must shortly be done.
7: And behold, I come quickly (the words of the angels pass into the words of Christ; see vv.12,20; 3:11. Cp 1:7 and v.16 below): blessed is the one that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book” (and ALL of the Bible. See John 17:6)

(John taken back to 95 A.D.)

8: And I John am he that heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.
9: And said he to me, “See that you do it not (cp. 19:10): I am your fellow-servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.” (DO NOT WORSHIP ANGELS)
10: And he said to me, “Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand. (see 1:3) 11: He that is unrighteous, let him act unrighteously: and he which is morally defiled, let him be morally defiled: and he that works righteousness, let him work righteousness: and he that is holy, let him be holy. (you can't change people)
12: Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give everyone as his work is. (no gender intended)
13: I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
14: Blessed are they do His commandments (the text reads "wash their robes"), in order that they may have the right over the trees of life (see v.2), and may enter by the gates into the city.
15: Outside are dogs (the word "dog" appears in Phoenician remains, as applied to a class of servants attached to a temple of Ashtoreth in Cyprus), and sorcerers, and whore-mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves (i.e. the lie) and makes a lie."
16: “I, Jesus sent My angel (in His hand)(in His hand) to testify (i.e. = to teach) to you these things in the churches (The "assemblies" of chapters 2 & 3 specifically, during the fulfillment of "the prophecy of this book"), I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright and the morning Star.” (Lucifer, the fake morning star, uses this title to deceive many)
17: And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. The one willing will, let him take the water of life freely.
18: I testify to every one that hears the words of the prophecy of this book(i.e. hear with understanding) , “If any one shall add to them, God shall add to him the plagues (i.e. deception) that are written in this book:
19: And if anyone shall take away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.”
20: He Which testifies these things says, "Surely I come quickly." (The seventh and last solemn warning by the LORD Himself. It is the one great subject of the whole book, which is all prophecy. Amen. See 3:14 and 2 Cor. 1:20) Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. (The use of the word "Lord" shows the utterance to be John's. None of His People, when He was on earth, were never so irreverent as to address Him as "Jesus" [see appendix 98 section 10 in the Companion Bible to see an explanation of this])
21: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints. Amen. (= THAT'S THE WAY IT IS)
