OVERVIEW OF THE SERMON:

Revelation 22:1-6 is the glorious climax to the book of Revelation. John paints a picture of paradise restored. In this paradise, the people of God from all nations have full access to, and are nourished by, the river and tree of life. Because of the Lamb who was slain, the curse of sin is completely removed, and God’s people are now able to look on the face of God. We will be delighting in, and worshiping Him, forever!
