(1-5) The River of Life
In the holy city of Jerusalem, there will be no sun because God will be the light. There will be no moon because it will never be night. And perhaps the reason there will be no sea is because the river of life will run through the city. Believers will see the face of God, have His name on their foreheads, and reign with Him forever and ever.
(6-21) Jesus Is Coming
Throughout the Old Testament, numerous predictions are made regarding the first coming of Jesus the Christ. At the beginning of the New Testament, those prophecies were fulfilled with Christ’s birth to Mary and Joseph. Now, at the end of the New Testament, a prediction is given regarding the second coming of Jesus the Christ. He is coming again, and He is coming soon. We can believe these last words of the Bible (and all of the words of the Bible) because they are words that come from God and all that He has ever said is trustworthy and true.
Christ’s invitation has not changed. To all, He says, “Come.”
To those who hear His words, He says, “Come.”
To the thirsty, He says, “Come.”
To the hungry, the tired, the broken, the destitute, He says, “Come.”
Come and be Mine, He says, and let Me be yours. Forever and ever.
Favorite verse: (17) The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.
