The Triune God is Our Blessing in Revelation 22:3-5

In recent months the majority of my posts were on Revelation 22:3-5. Each post focused on one or two phrases from these verses. Now it is good to read the whole at one time:

And there will no longer be a curse. And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His slaves will serve Him; and they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more; and they have no need of the light of a lamp and of the light of the sun, for the Lord God will shine upon them; and they will reign forever and ever.

The word “and” is used frequently in these verses. It seems to indicate that these are not separate blessings but rather aspects of the top and unique blessing—no separation of any kind between us and the Triune God.

New Jerusalem

In review, here are each of the phrases from Revelation 22:3-5 with a link to one post on each phrase.

And there will no longer be a curse.
Receive the Promise of the Spirit

And the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it,
The Throne of God and the Lamb

and His slaves will serve Him;
God’s Slaves Serve in New Jerusalem

and they will see His face,
We See the Face of God and the Lamb

and His name will be on their foreheads.
The Name of God and the Lamb

And night will be no more;
New Jerusalem: Night Will Be No More!

and they have no need of the light of a lamp and of the light of the sun for the Lord God will shine upon them;
The Lord God Shines in New Jerusalem

and they will reign forever and ever.
We Will Reign Forever in New Jerusalem

We can never sufficiently thank and appreciate our wonderful God for all that He is to us. Thank Him! Praise Him!
