Summary: He set’s on His Throne of Glory which will be just after the Tribulation, but just before He set up His 1000 year Kingdom, the SHEEP as He refers to them, gave aid to the Jews some how or other during the 7 year tribulation, so they make up the people fro
Rev. # 80~22:1-21 CLOSING REMARKS AND WARNING 11-27-10
Well today I suppose will be the last of our study in this great book of Prophecy, Revelation is the only book of prophecy in the N.T., there’s many prophetic verses in the N.T, but the Book of Revelation is entirely prophecy.
This is the 80th week of our study in the Revelation, and we’ve tried to present the truths of the book the best we know how, although I’m sure if we started over again next week the Lord would without doubt revile even more to us.
I’ve read and searched out subjects and verses from many sources trying to establish the meaning, and I’m sure that when we do the study next time we’ll have even more light on the book, that is if there is a next time, according to what we have read in this study and the ever day happenings that we see on the news ever thing is set and in place, the Lord could call His Church away at any time and that would certainly be alright with us.
Ø Let me pass this along to you; if you have excess to the internet you can read and hear all these studies again, go to “Sermons Central.com” and look for “contributors” and then when the names pop up look for “William D. Brown” and there you’ll see and hear them again if you so desire. Have you a pen and paper ready and I’ll give you that web address again at the close of the broadcast.
Well last time we read and made some comments on verses 1-5 here in chapter 22, the remainder of the verses pretty well explains them selves.
Ø Listen as I read the 1st 5 verses again.
1And he(the angel) shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2In the midst of the street of it, (the city) and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.***
—Let me remind us again that “The nations” are made up of the “Sheep” as the Lord calls them back in Matt. 25:31-46, He places them on His right, as He set’s on His Throne of Glory which will be just after the Tribulation, but just before He set up His 1000 year Kingdom, the SHEEP as He refers to them, gave aid to the Jews some how or other during the 7 year tribulation, so they make up the people from among the nations that will populate the Millennial Kingdom of the Lord Jesus for the 1000 years and remember their in their natural bodies, and these Sheep will have natural born children, and they and their saved off spring will inhabit the New earth after this old one has been destroyed by fire.
Mankind is responsible for its destruction because of depravity and sin, not because of misuse; so don’t worry about Al Gore’s global warming, global warming will eventually be global burning whenever God the Creator decides it.
And also the people in the tribulation period that was the Jews enemies the Lord calls “GOATS” and their placed on His left as He is seated there on His Throne of Glory judging from among the Nations, these are cast into outer darkness, they wind up in the lake of fire.
So the leaves of the tree of life were for the healing of the nations. Lets realize that these people will not have glorified bodies as the Church will have and so these leaves of the tree will be for their health and well being at that time.
-----------------Then in verses 3 & 4
3And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it;(city) and his servants shall serve him: 4And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
You and I that are saved and are part of His church will serve the Lord some place among the nations all over the world in the Millennium, and perhaps in the New Earth as well, or could even have some thing to do with other planets.
The prophet Isaiah revealed in chapter 9:7 that of the increase of His Government, there will be no end.
Let’s realize that the kingdom of God rules over the entire universe in its ever-expanding vastness.
What astronomers are learning is God is still creating things. And He will continue to create forever. It is His nature to create. We, who are His children by the blood of His Son Jesus Christ, will continue to both witness and enjoy His creative works forever.
