Revelation Chapter 22

Revelation 22 concludes with the"Spirit and bride" saying the same thing!  Finally the church has become tuned in to the Spirit's voice!  7 times in Revelation 2 & 3 John cries, "He that hath ears to hear let him hear what the Spirit is saying"!  That was at the beginning of the church age and tribulation. The tribulation period will be the greatest time of the bride of Christ "preparing herself" for the bridegroom.  As the world system called "Babylon" collapses, all that distracts us from Christ will be destroyed.  The need to hear the Spirit's voice in this time period will be absolutely essential. Finally the bride has "made herself ready".  Revelation concludes with the beauty of the new heaven and earth joining together as the city "bride" descends to join the people "bride" and they are united forever into one place.  Planet earth will be physically linked with the descended "new Jerusalem" city sent from God.  A river of "Pure water" will flow from the throne of God and fill the earth.  Today about 2.5 of all water on earth is pure!  But then 100% of the earth will be filled with absolutely pure water.  There will be not more sea to separate us from one another.  This river from the throne will support the "tree of life" which will bear fruit each of the 12 months. The leaves will also bring constant healing over and over again to all creation.  The sun and moon will have dissolved at the end of the millennium so the new light will be God's presence.  Can you imagine what kind of earth this will be?  No pollution, no curse, no evil.. only God's peace and love and presence.  We shall reign with Him forever and ever.  Have you ever wondered why there is so great a universe with billions of galaxies?  We will have access to the heavens as our playgrounds for eternity.  Just as Jesus ascended up from their sight in Acts 1:19 "Ye men of Galilee, why standing you gazing into heaven, this same Jesus who is taken up from you will so come in like manner."  Jesus went up physically in a body and so shall we be like Him forever.  Jesus ate with His resurrected body with the disciples and then disappeared out of their sight. This new body will have unusual abilities!  We will be housed in a body just like His resurrected body.  If you are a true born again believer in Christ, you have a lot to look forward to.  But if you do not know Jesus, your name has been now blotted out of the "Book of Life" and you will forever be with Satan and his demons in the final lake of fire.  No wonder John again cries, "Let him that is athirst come and drink of the water of life (Jesus Christ) freely."    You can receive Christ NOW by just inviting Him into your heart and life and asking Him to wash your sins away.  It is that simple
