He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb,
“A river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became four heads.”
“There is a river, the streams of which make the city of God glad, the holy place of the tents of the Most High.”
“He brought me back to the door of the house; and behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward; (for the forefront of the house was toward the east;) and the waters came down from under, from the right side of the house, on the south of the altar…Afterward he measured one thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed through.
in the middle of its street. On this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
“Out of the ground the HaShem Elokim made every tree to grow that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the middle of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.”
“Now when I had returned, behold, on the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then he said to me, These waters issue forth toward the eastern region, and shall go down into the Arabah, and they shall go toward the sea, into the sea shall the waters go which were made to issue forth; and the waters shall be healed.”
“By the river on its bank, on this side and on that side, shall grow every tree for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall its fruit fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, because its waters issue out of the sanctuary; and its fruit shall be for food, and its leaf for healing.”
There will be no curse any more. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants serve him.
“Men will dwell therein, and there will be no more curse; but Jerusalem will dwell safely.”
They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
There will be no night, and they need no lamp light, for the Lord God will illuminate them. They will reign forever and ever.
“The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but the LORD will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory.”
He said to me, These words are faithful and true. The Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon.
“Surely the Lord HaShem will do nothing, unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.”
‘Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.’
Now I, Yochanan, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things.
He said to me, ‘See you dont do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.’
He said to me, ‘Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.’
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run back and forth, and knowledge shall be increased.”
He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still.
Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work.
“Behold, the Lord HaShem will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him. Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.”
“Behold, HaShem has proclaimed to the end of the earth, ‘Say to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes. Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.”
I am the Alef and the Tav, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
“Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, HaShem, the First, and with the Last, I am he.”
Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.
“Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to HaShem’s Torah.”
Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
“Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Dont be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of God.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.
“Behold, the days come, says HaShem, that I will raise to David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.”
“I see him, but not now. I see him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob. A scepter will rise out of Israel, and shall strike through the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of Sheth.”
“Until שילה (Shiloh) come…”
“Do not be concerned at the fact that we divide this verse by applying part to the time of Moses and part to the time of the redemption at the time of the Messiah; you my reader, are surely familiar with the words of the Zohar section 2, page 120,that Moses is viewed as the redeemer . . . he who has been a redeemer in the past will again be a redeemer in the future. Do not counter by saying that the redeemer of the future will be from the tribe of Yehudah and will either be descended from king David … in view of all these prophecies how could we say tat the redeemer of the future will come from the tribe of Levi? You must realize that the soul of Moses was composed of all twelve tribes of Israel, all the 600,000 being “branches” of it. David’s soul therefore was also a branch of Moses’ soul. This is also why you find that while in the desert Moses performed the duties of both king, priest, Levite, prophet, scholar and military hero. He was only able to perform these functions because his soul comprised all branches of holiness. While the redeemer will appear in the future, it will be revealed that Moses was the root of all monarchy in Israel and David will be perceived as שילה (Shiloh) (which has the gematria of 345, that of משה, Moshe).”
R’ Chayim ben Attar, Or HaChayim, Volume 1, Parashat Vayechi, translated by R’ Eliyahu Munk, Lambda Publishers, pg. 427
The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ He who hears, let him say, ‘Come!’ He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely.
“Come, everyone who thirsts, to the waters! Come, he who has no money, buy, and eat! Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.”
I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, may God add to him the plagues which are written in this book.
If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, may God take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.
“You shall not add to the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it, that you may keep the commandments of HaShem your God which I command you.”
He who testifies these things says, Yes, I come quickly. Amen! Yes, come, Lord Yeshua.
The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with all the holy ones. Amen.
“The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. Amen.”
