The River of Life March 18, 2016

Here are my thoughts on Revelation 22:1-6.

Summary: In this passage, the angel from the previous passage shows John the river of the water of life. God is its source, and He uses it – through the tree of life – to remove the curse of the Fall. In particular, He will grant His people the light of His eternal presence. The angel then certifies that God is the ultimate source of this vision.

Thoughts: I long for the time when I will be allowed to:

  • “drink” from the river of the water of life
  • “eat” from the tree of life – especially since it bears fruit every month.

Now I think that believers will not (literally) eat or drink in the next life – as God will grant us new bodies that transcend our current physical limitations. Thus, this passage demonstrates the wondrous fact that God will continually meet our spiritual needs and desires in the next life. As believers, we should earnestly desire that glorious state – and continue to live out that desire in our current (ephemeral) state.
