Chapter 22 opens with the River of the water of life that flows from the throne of God, and mentions the Tree of life. This couples with verse 3, which says that “No longer will there be anything accursed.” This is a clear reference to the renewal of what was good before the fall of man in Genesis. Jesus tells john that he is coming soon, which means that his coming will be unexpected. The victory of the Lord over death and the evil one is complete; and just as he promised, he has prepared a place for all who will come and “take the water of life without price.”
