Publisher Description

A River Runs Through It 

An angel shows John a beautiful river flowing from God's throne. It's the water of life flowing in it. On the banks of the river is the tree of life, which grows twelve kinds of fruit. Looks like another favorite number is emerging. Nothing bad is ever going to happen in this new city. Everyone will just hang with God and rejoice and love each other all day. Sounds pretty good. 

The Truth and Nothing but the Truth 

The angel assures John that everything he's seen and heard is true. All of this is actually going to happen. For real. He also tells John to go ahead and share all this with the world. After all, Jesus will be coming very, very soon. People need this information because they need to do the right thing. God's judgment is coming. People who lead good lives will be able to live inside the walls of an awesome city made of gold. People who don't will get to take a little swim in a Lake of Fire... for all eternity. John also tells us that if anyone changes what he's written down, God is going to include them in all those terrible plagues. But really, Jesus is coming soon, John tells us. He ends the book with this hope and a short prayer for the faithful, then says, John of Patmos, out. 

The description of the New Jerusalem continues in the first five verses of this chapter. By the "river of the water of life" is doubtless meant full salvation, which as a mighty flowing stream issues "out of the throne of God and of the Lamb." To this fountain of living waters an invitation is now given to all to come and partake to their satisfaction. "The Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." Verse 17. As a defense to God's people in this world salvation is represented as a great wall surrounding them (Isa. 26:12); but as a source of joy, holiness and happiness, it is a living stream whereof all may partake. While this symbol meets an appropriate fulfillment in the present dispensation, yet salvation will also be the eternal possession of the saints in the world to come, when "they shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb, which is in the midst thereof, shall feed them, and shall _lead them unto living fountains of waters_; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Chap. 7:16, 17.
