The purity and clarity of the water are remarkable for John. Clarity speaks of the absence of sin and symbolizes the purification of the sin of those who take part in the river. Although it is a literal river in the eternal state, it also characterizes the Holy Spirit who purifies and gives life to those who trust Jesus Christ in this age, and the life to come Jh 4: 10, Jh 7: 37.When we see Jesus face to face, His final glory will be revealed to us, for He will give us the grace to see Him as He is, in all His mighty glory 1Jh 3: 1-3; Hebrews 1: 3. The name of Jesus will be on our “foreheads”, because we will be just like Him, as God’s children forever. And this must be understood, in the sense that we will have a spiritual likeness to Jesus Christ our God. “The supreme bliss “of the saints” is revealed in the immediate presence with God and the Lamb.” Just as “the worshipers of the beast bore his name on their forehead, yes, they carried the spiritual image of their master Rev 13: 17”, Likewise the children of God who enter heaven will bear a spiritual likeness and morals of God and the Lamb Holiness. We praise the Holy Spirit for revealing to us what we are going to be in Christ Jesus. And we praise Our Lord Jesus for pouring out His “Precious Blood” for us to be One with Him and the Father, Just as He is One with the Father John 17: 19-26; Jh 10: 30.The name “JESUS” is the only name that the Almighty God and the Lamb should be called in this dispensation of grace John 17: 11. Because the name “JESUS” is the name that is above every name, and all knees will bow and worship “JESUS AS LORD.” To the glory of God the Father Phil 2: 9-11. And whatever you do in word or deed, you must do it in “ONE NAME”. The name of “JESUS” Col 3: 17. Whoever is ashamed of the name of Jesus at the end will not enter the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, where God and His saints will dwell forever Luke 9: 26. God gave only One name under heaven, and that name is “JESUS”. And it is in the name of “JESUS” we have salvation Acts 4: 10-12. Jh 1: 9-13. Rom 10: 8-13. The greatest mystery of God is that the Word of God became flesh, and manifest the name of the Father Jn 5: 43. 1Tm 3: 16. Yes, He was stripped of all his divine qualities by becoming a man phil 2: 5-11. When Jesus was crucified and resurrected, He had a new spiritual and glorious body that could receive all the quality of the divine power and Holiness of God Mt 28: 16, which He had previously as the Word of God. This is why Rev. 19: 12 and 13 reveal to us that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will take back His name, and position as the “Word of God.” Yes, and we who are in Christ will lead the earth under Him who is King of kings and Lord of lords. Yes, the saints will rule the earth as king and priest for eternity under God our Father Re 1: 6. And that is the very purpose of having His name written on our “foreheads” Rev 22: 4. We will be little Jesus for eternity.God became a man to enable man to become His son and receive a new name Rev 3: 12. Then the Lord told the Angel to tell John. These words are certain and true, I am coming soon … Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book. For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to it, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book. and if anyone remove one word from the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share of the book of life, of the holy city, and of the things that are written in this book. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! To God and His Word, and His Spirit, be all the Glory forever and ever, and ever Amen!!!
