“Then he showed me the river of living water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the broad street [of the city]. The tree of life was on both sides of the river, bearing 12 kinds of fruit, producing its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations, and there will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and His slaves will serve Him. They will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.”
The nations need to be healed! It is without question a sick world. Masses of humanity are struggling to survive in a world of inequity and unrighteousness. The guilty are suffering along with their children who cannot avoid the consequences of their parent’s sins. If God were to let us see the world through His righteous eyes the filth would be unbearable.
But what He sees is also an opportunity to save those who are lost and to change them into the likeness of Jesus. He takes filthy rags and reweaves them into the righteous garments of heaven! Doubting that He can change me is like doubting the sun’s ability to warm the day.
One at a time we leave this world. But there will come a day when Jesus will return and bring sin to a screeching halt. When He does those who know and love Him will eat of the Tree of Life and live forever and there will be no more curse! No one knows that today is not the DAY! Be ready!
"Lord Jesus, take the rags of my righteousness and reweave them into a garment that glorifies You. And may You, Lord Jesus be praised forever. Amen."
