ch22

v14; "...the right to eat of the tree of life".
This was promised in the letter to Ephesus, ch2 v7.
It's implied, in any case, by two things which we know already;
That they may enter (and reside in) the City
And that the tree of life is freely available within the City.

Excellent index. I can't thank you enough for the hard work that you put into this. I will be putting it to use for my personal studies for a long time to come...probably until He comes. Thanks again!

ch22

v3; "there shall no more be anything accursed"

Amongst other things, this fulfils the promise of Zechariah ch14 v11, which also speaks of Jerusalem;
"There shall be no more curse; Jerusalem shall dwell in security".

Just to clarify;
Nothing in the OP is intended to suggest any particular prophetic signifcance in the year 2012 or the date 21/12/2012

The same theme is developed with a more specific application to the "2012" predictions in the attached thread;
Revelation and "2012"; The great divide

ch22

v11 I contrasted this verse with the second half of Daniel ch12 v4.
However, I've just been reminded that it is also, in a sense, an echo of Daniel ch12 v9

Daniel says "many shall purify themselves and be refined", which is echoed here in "let the righteous still do right, the holy still be holy".
Daniel says "the wicked shall do wickedly", which is echoed here in "let the evildoer still do evil", etc.

ch22

v4 "They shall see his face".
This is another aspect of the cancellation of the curse of Genesis.
This is the face from which Adam hid in the Garden.

ch22
v5 The promise that "they shall reign for ever and ever" is, amongst other things, a confirmation of what daniel ch7 v27 says about the saints;
"their kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom",

ch22
v12; "Bringing my recompense" is, amongst other things, a quotation from Isaiah ch40 v10, where it is part of the promise of salvation beginning "Confort my people".

ch22

v16; "I Jesus have sent my angel".
This repeats what was said in the first verse of the book.
But in v6 of this same chapter it was the Lord God who sent the angel.
That illustrates how much this book assumes an identity between the two.

ch22

v16: "I am the root and offspring of David".
"Root of David" links back to ch5 v5, where that is part of the description of the Lamb appearing in the throne-room.
The whole phrase echoes Isaiah ch11 v1, where it is the "shoot and branch of David" who will receive the Spririt of God, come as the righteous judge of the whole world, and act as an ensign to the nations.

ch22

v16; "I am the bright morning star".
In ch 2 v28, one of the promises made to those who conquer is "I will give him the morning star".
But if Jesus is the morning star, that means he is promising to give himself.
In Numbers ch24 v17, it is said;
"A star shall come out of Jacob, and a sceptre shall arise out of Israel"- which will then crush the enemies of God's people.
So this fits in very well with "root and offspring of David".
I find in an old note of mine, which I rather approve of;
Root of David- for the Old Testament
Offspring of David- for the New Testament
Bright morning star- for the age to come.

ch22

v16; "I am the bright morning star".

In recent times this description has been used as the basis for a specious argument directed against Christ.
The argument goes like this;
"Here Jesus is called the "morning star".
But the same phrase is used in Isaiah ch14 v12, addressed to someone whom the prophet condemns.
In the Isaiah reference, older tramnslations use the name "Lucifer", a word originating in the Vulgate translation.
This proves that Christ is the same person as Lucifer!"

This silly quibble is easily answered.
"Morning star" is a title of honour, not a name.
If you see the same name in two different places, that sometimes means that they're both talking about the same person. Though this doesn't always follow even with names (readers of the New Testament have to cope with more than one John and more than one James).
But you can't jump to that conclusion just because you find the same title in more than one place.
The leaders of the United States and France and Germany are all called "President", but nobody uses that fact to demonstrate that all these countries are led by the same person.
Nebuchadnezzer is called a king, and Christ is called a king. That doesn't mean they're the same person- it just means that they claim the same title. From the Christian viewpoint, Christ has a better claim to the title, while Nebuchadnezzar is a usurper.
Similarly "morning star" or "day star" is a title which was once allowed to the person addressed in Isaiah ch14 v12, but he was found to be unworthy.
I think the point, again, is that Christ has a better claim to the title.




PS I meant to add, and nearly forgot, that the Christian community really set themselves up and expose themselves to this line of attack by the habit of taking "Lucifer", based on a Latin translation, as a personal name. This is what the quibblers are exploiting.

Thank you for your encouragement.

ch22

v17; "The Spirit and the Bride say "Come!""
This is addressed to Christ, urgung him to return.
"The Bride" is the Church, of course.
The Sprit and the Bride must speak together, because the Spirit only speaks through the Church and the Church only speaks through the Spirit. They have one voice.
