Chapter 22




1.  And he showed to me a pure stream of water of life, clear as crystal, flowing out from the throne of the Deity and of the Lamb.

2.  In the midst of its broad space, and on each side of the stream, was a wood of life producing twelve fruits, through one month, yielding its separate fruit: and the leaves of the wood were for the healing of the nations.

3. And there shall no more be any curse: but the throne of the Deity and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.

4. And they shall see his face, and his name shall be upon their foreheads.

5.   And there shall be no night there: and they shall have no need of a lamp and light of the sun: for YAHWEH Elohim illuminates them: and they shall reign for the Aions of the Aions.

6.  AND he said to me, These words are faithful and true: and YAHWEH Elohim of the holy prophets sent his angel to show to his servants the things which must come to pass with speed.

7.  Behold I come suddenly. Blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

8.  And I, John, am seeing and hearing these things. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to do homage before the feet of the angel showing these things to me.

9.   And he saith to me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them who keep the sayings of this book: do homage to the Deity.

10.   And he saith to me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book; for the time is near.

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust now, and he that is filthy, let him be filthy now; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous now; and he that is holy, let him be holy now.

12.  And behold, I come suddenly, and my reward is with me, to render to every one as his work shaH be.

13. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.

14.  Blessed are they who do his commandments, that their right may be upon the wood of the life, and they may enter in to the gates into the city.

15.  But without are the dogs, and the sorcerers, and the fornicators, and the murderers, and the idolators, and every one that loveth and inventeth falsehood.

16. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you these things for the ecclesias. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright and Morning Star.

17. And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come: and he that heareth, let him say, Come; and he that is thirsty, let him come, and he that will, let him take the water of life freely.

18. For I testify to every one hearing the sayings of the prophecy of this book: If any one add to these things, the Deity will add upon him the plagues which have been written in this book. 19. And if any one take away from the sayings of the book of this prophecy, the Deity will take away his part from the Book of the Life, and out of the Holy City, and the things which have been writ?ten in this book.

20. He who testifieth these things, saith, Yea, I come suddenly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

21. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ  be with all of  you  Amen


The final chapter of The Apocalypse completes the description of the New Jerusalem, and then concludes with a personal message from Christ, and a response from John in Patmos. The first six verses describe the river of life which John observes proceeding out of the throne of the Holy City.

What follows is exhortation and warning: an exhortation to understand and apply the principles set forth in The Apocalypse, and a stern warning against minimising the importance, meaning or effect of the revelation given. The book concludes with a prayer and a benediction; thus fittingly bringing to an end the wonderful revelation from heaven that we call “The Holy Bible”.

The final chapters provide a description of the New Jerusalem which is based upon the literal Temple as described by Ezekiel in his closing chapters. There will be a literal and a figurative Temple in the age to come; the former serviced by the immortal priests the sons of Zadok (or antitypical Meichizedek class) for the edification of humanity. For further information regarding the Temple and worship of the Age to come, see The Temple of Ezekiel’s Prophecy by Henry Sulley —Publishers.
