1Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
This is a continuation of John's vision of the Holy City, New Jerusalem. The River of Life and the Tree of Life are none other than Jesus Christ Himself with His finished work of salvation on the cross. The leaves of the Tree are for the healing of the nations.
Note that the nations still need to be healed spiritually, and that the offer of salvation remains open to nations who are being judged in the Lake of Fire, outside the walls of the Holy City.
