And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:1-2
As we conclude our series on The Tree. First we saw that a Tree in the Garden of Eden is where Sin entered into the world putting us under the curse of death. Second we saw that a Tree on the hill at Calvary brought our salvation as Jesus Christ paid for the wages of our sins. Third, we saw that the Tree is representation of the Church, as the unbelieving branches are broken off and those who do accept Christ are grafted into the root Jesus Christ.
Today we take a look at how in the New Heavens and Earth, that is Gods eternal Kingdom to come, there will be a Tree of Life. This Tree will provide “the healing for all nations” Just as the Garden of Eden, God will provide perfect food for our new immortal bodies in His eternal Kingdom
And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. Ezekiel 47:12
The Prophet Ezekiel reveals that same thing, God will provide Trees of Life that will produce new fruit every month and will provide healing for everyone!
So the next time you look at the Christmas Tree or gaze at any tree, remember God and everything that he has provided and done for us. Most importantly remember Jesus Christ, who by his sacrifice on The Tree and the shedding of his blood, we may inherit eternal life Amen!
