240 A River of Water of Life

1. A river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeds out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. On either side of the river is there the tree of life, which bears twelve manner of fruits, and yields her fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. There shall be no more curse, no more curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in the city. His servants shall serve Him, and they shall see His face. His name shall be in their foreheads. There shall be no night there; and they need no candle, need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light. They shall reign forever and ever.

2. The holy city, new Jerusalem, comes down from God out of heaven. Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them. They shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying or pain anymore. For the former things are passed away. He will give to him that is thirsty of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; God will be his God, and he shall be His son.

3. For the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of the city. And the city has no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God does lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. The nations shall walk in the light of it: the kings of the earth do bring their glory into it. The gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. They shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it. There shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defiles, neither whatever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

4. The lightning comes from the east and shines to the west. Almighty God, Christ of the last days, has come among men. He expresses the truth; the Word appears in the flesh. All peoples return before God’s throne, taking kingdom exercise and perfection. Christ of the last days has brought the eternal way of life. God’s people are face to face with God every day and enjoy God’s word, sweet beyond compare. The word, like a two-edged sword, judges, purifying and saving the people. The judgment has begun with the family of God, and the curtain has risen upon judgment of the last days. All people of God hallow the name of Almighty God. Almighty God has come into His kingdom. God’s work has been accomplished, and He has gained full glory.
