Thank you to the readers who have joined me in this Revelation study. Let’s complete our study by reading part of Revelation 22:2.

Revelation 22:1-2 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb, down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life.

In our previous blog, we learned that the river of the water of life is the Holy Spirit. Let’s read the following scripture to discover the tree of life.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and the one who is wise saves lives.

When a Christian witnesses, the souls that are saved will witness to others, creating a tree of life. When the saved souls witness to new people, even more souls are saved and the tree of life expands and grows many branches. Therefore, the tree of life are all of the souls that have received the Holy Spirit and live in the new Jerusalem and new earth.

Revelation 22:2 also says that there is a tree of life on each side of the river / Holy Spirit. This probably represents the Jews (God’s original chosen people) who received the Holy Spirit and the gentiles (non Jews) who received the Holy Spirit and were grafted into the family of God. Both of these groups or trees of life will live in the new Jerusalem and new earth.

Thank you so much for studying. God bless.
