Wesley's Notes for Revelation 22:6


22:6 And he said to me - Here begins the conclusion of the book, exactly agreeing with the introduction, (particularly verses 6, 7, 10, #Rev 22:6|,7,10 with chap. i. 1, 3,) #Rev 1:1|,3 and giving light to the whole book, as this book does to the whole scripture. These sayings are faithful and true - All the things which you have heard and seen shall be faithfully accomplished in their order, and are infallibly true. The Lord, the God of the holy prophets - Who inspired and authorised them of old. Hath now sent me his angel, to show his servants - By thee. The things which must be done shortly - Which will begin to be performed immediately.

    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
