Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:5


22:5 And they shall reign for ever and ever - What encouragement is this to the patience and faithfulness of the saints, that, whatever their sufferings are, they will work out for them an eternal weight of glory! Thus ends the doctrine of this Revelation, in the everlasting happiness of all the faithful. The mysterious ways of Providence are cleared up, and all things issue in an eternal Sabbath, an everlasting state of perfect peace and happiness, reserved for all who endure to the end.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:5


Re 22:5 And there shall be no night there. The city is a city of light lighted by the divine presence, but the meaning goes beyond this. The soul shall have no nights of sorrow there. And they shall reign for ever and ever. They shall be Christ's assistants in the rule of the glorified earth.

    Hello Karoline. The book of revelation is as easy as the other books , since in some cases like this one God is speaking plainly. about the New Jerusalem, the city of God. It has rivers as shown , it has fruits bearing twelve types of fruits from the same tree. also the curse that God pronounced on the earth shall not be there, it shall not bear thorns ad thistles, no death no suffering.
  • Steve
    Karoline:These describe the rivers, streets and fruit of the NEW JERUSALEM. Besides the 12 great rivers in the midst of the 12 great Broadway's going thru the 12 gates into all parts of the earth, there will be all kind of fountains of water of life in the city. On both sides of the 12 great rivers flowing for 1500 miles thru the great Broadway's will be trees of life. There will be no more curse
