Getting To Know God
His name is...
The Creator - The Light - The Glory - Aseity
The Source Of Life
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb.
The Bible teaches that there are two major promises that God makes. The first concerns eternal life. God is eternally self-existing and self-sustaining and therefore able to share the quality of life that makes up His own nature. The second promise deals with forgiveness of sins. If not for forgiveness of sins, the promise of eternal life cannot be fulfilled. God will not sustain corrupted life for eternity. He’s going to clean it up first, which He did through the blood sacrifice of Jesus. Hence, it is fitting to see in the end, the river that provides water for life contains no corruption, coming from the throne of God, where Jesus is seated.
