Sorry to rain on your parade Ryan. The whole problem was that God instituted kings and queens and nations as the best way, but Nimrod, the rebellious one, decided that he wanted to rule the world. Like the Pope does. He was the first politician. He tried to bring everyone into one nation to control them. God punished him and the world by making all the different languages. He wants us separate. He only wants unity among believers. Already there is unity among the few remaining bible believers.

The nations of the world at one time were one and they decided to build the tower of babel. God punished man by scattering them thus cursing the nations so they were no longer one but many. All earthly nations will be represented in heaven. We will all live together again as one and be able to partake of the tree of life thus healing all the nations.

greetings.the tree refered to is most unique in that it can grow on both physical and spiritual soil,on earth as it is in heaven.The leaves are to be eaten for nourishment to support the life mechanism(new body)that one has at the time of arrival.

greetings to add.One could truly say nations of ascending people are healed when tears and pain from the old body is no more.

NKJ explation."These verses deplict the abundant life and continueous blessing of the New Jerusalem. One river,containg water of life comes from God's throne and waters the entire city.The tree of life picyures eternal sustenance and immortality.Both the variety and abundance of fruits are emphasized.the healing of nations may indicate physical healing or the blessing of God in the enternal state.

greetings,for carla,do you think john was viewing a world not made by hands that was of unimaginable beauty,with rivers,flowing through a tremendous, sparkling spirit made structure,and on a magnificent street there is again the tree of life,that those who are of mortal heritage may eat the fruits as like adam did to replenish.was not this spiritual food in adams day?is this angel food?

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise. Ezekiel 47:12 Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing."
All people will be in one accord in heaven because of the Bread of Life, Jesus, we will be able to eat of the tree of life.

#4 Thank God, there will be no need of healing medicines in eterntiy. But the eternal Preventive - "THE TREE OF LIFE," "THE LAMB OF GOD" - will be there.

#3 22:2 As Jesus Christ is more to some saints today than to others - "BREAD" to some and only "MANNA" to others;likewise, He will be the nourishment as "FRUIT" to some and as "LEAVES" to others. It is surprising that the Greek word "therapeia" should be limited to healing by translators. It means "a waiting on, service, attendance, a fostering, nurturing, attending in sickness, medical treatment.

#2 Also, as the rivers figure the Spirit, so "THE TREE OF LIFE" figures Christ. Twelve fruits - a variety that satisfies fully, yielded monthly - simply means that the saved will be dependent upon the Lamb during the unchanging and unceasing cycles (3 times 4) of eternity; twelve being the absolute number of Divine rule. "AND THE LEAVES OF THE TREE WERE FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS".

#1 22:1 We might wonder if there were no reference to the Holy Spirit in the description of the holy city. But here it is - "A PURE RIVER OF WATER." Ezekiel forty-seven speaks of this same river as flowing out from the earthly Jerusalem during the Millennium. Here we have mention of the three Persons of the Godhead - God the Father, the Lamb, and the Holy Spirit. The third is called, "RIVERS OF LIVING WATER" in
JOHN 7:38
