Verse By Verse Through Revelation (22:1-5)

1 Then he showed me the river of the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb

The water of life flowing from the throne of God and the Lamb is in reference to those who will inherit the kingdom of heaven, that eternal life has been given to them.


2 down the middle of the city’s main street. The tree of life was on each side of the river, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree are for healing the nations

The tree of life represents eternal healing with no more death, sickness, and any other illnesses.


3 and there will no longer be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will worship him.

“and there will no longer be any curse.” Brings back to mind, Genesis 3:16-19 which makes a woman’s labor painful, hard work for men, spiritual [separation from God because of sin] and physical death for all humanity.

In the new heaven and the new earth, there will be no more curses as seen in Genesis 3, for sin will never again take root. The Lamb and the Lord God will be worshiped in pureness from His saints.


4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.

We will see Jesus in His full glory. His name being on our foreheads signifies that we belong to Him forever.


5 Night will be no more; people will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, because the Lord God will give them light, and they will reign forever and ever.

The Lord God Almighty who is pure light will be our sun. The night will not be necessary because as eternal beings, we will need no rest. Also, see notes in Revelation 21:25

  1. Do you think that people will go into a Garden of Eden on the New Earth and pleanish this earth as once was commanded. For we will not need the Tree of Life as our life is in Christ Jesus But we will be able to eat if we should wish. I have heard this said of people left from the millinial reign who have accepted Him. Ty.:))

  2. In the new earth, there won’t be anymore marriages or intimacy with a man and a woman. That is explained by Jesus in Matthew 22:29-30 which says, “29 Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels of God in heaven.”

    I don’t see why we wouldn’t be able to eat freely from the tree of life.

  3. I think there will be living people at the end of Christ’s earthly reign , who have accepted Him as Savior. Will they become as the angels as well, with a glorified body and why would we need a new earth? Rev. 21: 1-7 says nations and people. Ty.

  4. Those are very good questions. I will do my best to answer them. 🙂

    1. “I think there will be living people at the end of Christ’s earthly reign, who have accepted Him as Savior.”

    Yes, you are correct. In Jesus’ millennial reign, many people will come to put their trust in Him and many others at the end of His reign will gather together with Satan to make war with Him.

    2. “Will they become as the angels as well, with a glorified body”

    Yes, after the great judgment takes place, and Satan with his fallen angels and all those who rejected Jesus who ever lived, get thrown into the Lake of Fire, the rest of the believers who were not rapture will receive their spiritual bodies.

    3. “and why would we need a new earth? Rev. 21: 1-7 says nations and people.”

    The reason why we will have a new earth is that the one we live in now is cursed because of our sins. The new one will be a whole or complete garden without a curse [death]. There will be trees and flowers with beautiful colors that we have not seen before. The Lamb [Jesus] and the Father will live in the new earth with the saints for all eternity. Nations in Revelation may suggest different types of races or positions.

    the reason that God doesn’t live with men on earth now is that the earth is cursed and is full of sin.
