The River of Life!
Scripture reading for December 28th: Zechariah 11-14, Revelation 22
Key Scriptures: Revelation 22:1-4 “Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it and His servants will worship Him. They will see His face and His Name will be on their foreheads.”
John’s concluding chapter begins with a vision of the river of the water of life. It flowed from the throne of God and the Lamb and the tree of life was growing on its banks. The fruit was new every month, twelve kinds! The leaves were for healing of the nations. The water was crystal clear and pure, a source of refreshing and eternal life!
Zechariah 14:8-9 “On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter. And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day the Lord will be One and His Name One.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I long to see You face to face! Thank You for giving understanding to Your people through the prophesies of Scripture. We long to drink the living water and eat of the tree of life! Jesus, You are the source of eternal satisfaction! Amen.
