“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” (Revelation 3:22).
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God [PLANTED A GARDEN EASTWARD IN EDEN]; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; [THE TREE OF LIFE] also [IN THE MIDST OF THE GARDEN], and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Genesis 2:7-9, 15).
“And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: [AND NOW, LEST HE PUT FORTH HIS HAND, AND TAKE ALSO OF THE TREE OF LIFE, AND EAT, AND LIVE FOR EVER]: Therefore the LORD God [SENT HIM FORTH FROM THE GARDEN OF EDEN], to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; [AND HE PLACED AT THE EAST OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN CHERUBIMS, AND A FLAMING SWORD WHICH TURNED EVERY WAY, TO KEEP THE WAY OF THE TREE OF LIFE]” (Genesis 3:22-24).
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to [EAT OF THE TREE OF LIFE], which is [IN THE MIDST OF THE PARADISE OF GOD]” (Revelation 2:7).
“AND he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the [TREE OF LIFE, WHICH BARE TWELVE MANNER OF FRUITS, AND YIELDED HER FRUIT EVERY MONTH: AND THE LEAVES OF THE TREE WERE FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS]” (Revelation 22:1-2).
“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have [RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE], and may enter in through the gates into the city” (Revelation 22:12-14).
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Revelation 22:20-21).
