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.
