The River of Life

"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and from the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse." (Rev. 22:1,2)

No more disease
No more death
No more crying and wailing
No more hate
no more racism
no more poverty.

Our current president thinks he can legislate his idea of a perfect world, a utopian society where everything is fair. Enough laws, enough government control and this society will be just perfect.

No! Won't happen. Can't. Impossible.

No man can make the world perfect. How presumptious, how arrogant.

Note the scripture above. We don't ususally think of water that flows through a city as clean, let alone clear as crystal. But where does the water of the river of life come from?
From God.
And the tree, God's tree, is for the healing of the nations.

Obama can keep on deceiving himself and anyone else who will listen.
But only GOD can heal the nations.
And one day every knee, including Barack Obama's, "will kneel and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil. 2:11)
Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!

"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done." (Rev. 22: 12)
