“Night will be no more!”
Scripture reading for December 30th: Revelation 22, Psalm 147-48, Proverbs 13
Key Scriptures: Revelation 22:1-5 “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. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”
John’s final vision of the Holy City was of the river flowing from the throne of God and the tree of life growing on either side. These trees produced twelve kinds of fruit and leaves brought healing to the nations. No more idols would be found inside the city or temple, for God’s throne and the Lamb would dwell in it. This would bring eternal light and no more darkness or the deeds of darkness. The Lamb and God Almighty would reign forever and ever in a glorious kingdom of light.
Faith Confession: It will be” joy unspeakable and full of glory” to behold the Lamb and see His glorious face and worship Him forever and ever! No more darkness! Eating of the Tree of Life!
Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.”
