The HEALING leaves

 

Revelation 22:2

King James Version

2 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.


That verse above gave us the idea for naming this 64th blog:

"For the HEALING of nations."


Those intriguing leaves are worthy of contemplation.

What diseases do nations have?

We wrote something on that before:

Sins of society

The way of nations

The people of ISRAEL sin against GOD

AWARENESS of sin


We are fascinated by the fact that the leaves of the tree would be used for the healing of the nations.

This was the same tree of life GOD spoke of in Genesis:

Genesis 2:9

King James Version

9 And out of the ground 

made the Lord God to grow 

every tree that is pleasant to the sight, 

and good for food; 

the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, 

and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.


After the fall of man, GOD placed Cherubims to guard the tree of life.

Genesis 3:22-24

King James Version

22 And the Lord God said, 

Behold, 

the man is become as one of us, 

to know good and evil: 

and now, lest he put forth his hand, 

and take also of the tree of life, 

and eat, and live for ever:

23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth 

from the garden of Eden, 

to till the ground from whence he was taken.

24 So he drove out the man; 

and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden 

Cherubims, 

and a flaming sword which turned every way, 

to keep the way of the tree of life


Now, that tree is reserved for when the curse is lifted.

Revelation 22:3-5

King James Version

3 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:

4 And they shall see his face; 

and his name shall be in their foreheads.

5 And there shall be no night there; 

and they need no candle, 

neither light of the sun; 

for the Lord God giveth them light: 

and they shall reign for ever and ever.


Who has a right to the tree of life?

Revelation 22:14

King James Version

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, 

that they may have right to the tree of life, 

and may enter in through the gates into the city.


Those who won't be allowed to enter GOD's holy city, the New Jerusalem:

Revelation 22:15

King James Version

15 For without are dogs, 

and sorcerers,

and whoremongers, 

and murderers, 

and idolaters, 

and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.


Appropriate warnings are given:

Revelation 22:11-12

King James Version

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: 

and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: 

and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: 

and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, 

I come quickly; 

and my reward is with me, 

to give every man 

according as his work shall be.


GOD has wonderful promises for the believer.

It's really time to give your heart to the LORD.

And partake of those promises.

For we all need healing.

In every aspect of our lives.

Time to heed the LORD's call:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

Nations as GOD's children

 

Matthew 5:9

What does the Bible say who children of GOD are?

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

one such little child in my name receiveth me.

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?

and walk in them; and I will be their God, 

and they shall be my people.

and be ye separate,

that we might receive the adoption of sons.

6 And because ye are sons,

then an heir of God through Christ.

JUDGE of nations

 

JESUS said:

Matthew 13:30

King James Version

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: 

and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 

Gather ye together first the tares, 

and bind them in bundles to burn them: 

but gather the wheat into my barn.


How will it all end for nations?

How shall we be judged?

Who judges us?

JESUS does.

Psalm 9:16-20

King James Version

16 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: 

the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. 

Higgaion. Selah.

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, 

and all the nations that forget God.

18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: 

the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

19 Arise, O Lord; 

let not man prevail: 

let the heathen be judged in thy sight.

20 Put them in fear, O Lord: 

that the nations may know themselves to be but men. 

Selah.


Matthew 13:41-43

King James Version

41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, 

and they shall gather out of his kingdom 

all things that offend, 

and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: 

there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun 

in the kingdom of their Father. 

Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.


Matthew 25:31-43

King James Version

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, 

and all the holy angels with him, 

then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: 

and he shall separate them one from another, 

as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, 

but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, 

Come, ye blessed of my Father, 

inherit the kingdom prepared for you 

from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: 

I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: 

I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: 

I was sick, and ye visited me: 

I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, 

saying, 

Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? 

or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? 

or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, 

or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Inasmuch as ye have done it 

unto one of the least of these my brethren, 

ye have done it unto me.

41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, 

Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, 

prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: 

I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: 

naked, and ye clothed me not: 

sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.


John 6:37-40

King James Version

37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; 

and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.


John 10:27-28

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, 

and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
