People's Bible Notes for Revelation 22:7


Re 22:7 Behold, I come quickly. These words are repeated in Re 22:12,20. It is the coming of Christ that is meant. It may be that the reference is to his coming to work out "the things which must shortly come to pass" (Re 1:1), or he may refer to his final coming, which was not far away according to the divine measure. Blessed [is] he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. Such an one will be found faithful when the Lord comes.

    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.

    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
