Text: REVELATION 22:1-21

Revelation 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

2 In the middle of its street of it, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him.

4 And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there, and they need no lamp, nor light of the sun; for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.

6 And he said to me, "These sayings are faithful and true; and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must soon take place."

7 "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book."

8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.

9 Then he said to me, "See, do it not. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the sayings of this book. Worship God!"

10 And he said to me, "Do not seal the sayings of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he that is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy, let him be holy still."

12 "And, behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give every one according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."

14 Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie.

16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come." And let him that hears say, "Come." And let him that is thirsty come. And whoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

18 For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book.

19 And if anyone shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
