Verse of the Day

Revelation 22:2 (NKJV)

In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Bible Commentary

Revelation 22:2 is a Bible verse from the last chapter in the Bible that describes the effects of the river of water of life.

To get the full impact from this verse, let’s read the rich content of the first five verses of Revelation 22.

And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Revelation 22:1-5)

These are amazing words which introduce us to the Kingdom of God. It is always easier to go to an unknown place if we have seen a photo of it or have an idea of what it’s like. It makes the transition easier if we know what to expect.

Revelation21-5

That’s precisely what the first five verses in Revelation 22 do for us. They lessen the effect of culture shock. God is ever so gentle in His ways.

There are multiple words in these verses that give us a mental picture of things we are familiar with—river of water, street, tree, fruit and leaves.

It makes sense that the tree of life is close (on either side) of the river of water of life in Revelation 22:2. Trees need water to grow. This tree is special because it is watered with the pure river of water of life.

Imagine how healthy we would be if we drank this water. We would be like the tree of life—vibrant and healthy, glowing with the righteousness of God. Actually, Jesus is the living water, so this pure water is available to us.
