Revelation 22 (New Living Translation)
Revelation 22 1 Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit,[a] with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
3 No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. 4 And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
6 Then the angel said to me, “Everything you have heard and seen is trustworthy and true. The Lord God, who inspires his prophets,[b] has sent his angel to tell his servants what will happen soon.[c]”
Jesus Is Coming
7 “Look, I am coming soon! Blessed are those who obey the words of prophecy written in this book.[d]”
8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw all these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me. 9 But he said, “No, don’t worship me. I am a servant of God, just like you and your brothers the prophets, as well as all who obey what is written in this book. Worship only God!”
10 Then he instructed me, “Do not seal up the prophetic words in this book, for the time is near. 11 Let the one who is doing harm continue to do harm; let the one who is vile continue to be vile; let the one who is righteous continue to live righteously; let the one who is holy continue to be holy.”
12 “Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. 15 Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne.[e] I am the bright morning star.”
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life. 18 And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. 19 And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person’s share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book.
20 He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!”
Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!
21 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people.[f]
The day is coming to an end.
The children play outside catching the last rays of sunlight.
The mother is preparing the meal for her family.
The husband is resting against the wall in the shade, weary over the labor he completed.
The homeless one gathers the meager belongings and heads for a small makeshift shelter that will protect him in the night.
The lonely old one prays for time to end. There is no one left to help now and hunger is the only companion.
The one lay dying turns his head to the stars above that are beginning to appear. Surely the pain will end soon.
And so it goes, day in, day out. Never ending. Nothing changes. This day is like any other.
Someone is watching. Someone has always been watching. He is at the door now and has said…
Time shall be no more.
Some of us have known of Him. Some of us have grown up with Him. Others have just come to know Him. Others are so alone in this world without Him; they sense it, they have no hope and yet don’t know how to know Him.
These ARE… I repeat ARE the last days. Most all of the prophecies have been fulfilled.
We are admonished more than ever to “WALK UPRIGHTLY” .
For … He is at the door.
This day is like any other. Nothing is different.
The children stop playing.
The mother’s soul alerts her to look up.
The husband’s weary head lifts to the Eastern sky.
The homeless one begins to glow with joy
The lonely old one forgets his aging physical body and begins rejoicing as it falls away and he is forever renewed in his Spiritual body.
The dying one is no longer dying. His tears have turned to diamonds as he worships the One he sees coming in Glory.
This is like any other day. Only it isn’t.
Time is no more.
Our King is returning in His Glory with His church.
And He is coming for YOU.
You are not alone, you are loved more than you can know. He wants you to be with Him for all of Eternity.
But more than that know that Jesus has been waiting for you. He doesn’t want you separated from Him now or ever.
He waits for you to ask Him to come into your Heart and to accept Him as your Personal Savior.
What joy! What love will overflow you!
Do it NOW while there is still time.
Ask Jesus into your life before it’s too late.
Come until Him NOW.
Leave your cares behind. Give Jesus all the sins, the wrongs that you’ve done that you can’t live with.
He will take them from you. He will cover you with a pure white robe. He will welcome you to His loving arms.
He will tell you personally…
“Well done thou good and faithful servant”
Come into the kingdom that I have prepared for YOU!
I pray in the Holy name of our Lord Jesus Christ that you hear His voice TODAY…
For now is the time. Now is the hour.
He is coming soon. Watch. I will be watching with you !
We shall all dance together in the presence of Jesus on that day when He comes back for you and for me.
Come… Come forward now and receive Christ with all the love in your Heart.
He is waiting, just for you!
Love in Christ,
