Read the Bible through with Yellow Creek Baptist Church:

The River of Life
Rev 22:1
  Then 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 
Rev 22:2  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. 
Rev 22:3  No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 
Rev 22:4  They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 
Rev 22:5  There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. 
Jesus Is Coming
Rev 22:6  The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” 
Rev 22:7  “Look, I am coming soon! Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy written in this scroll.” 
Rev 22:8  I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. 
Rev 22:9  But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your fellow prophets and with all who keep the words of this scroll. Worship God!” 
Rev 22:10  Then he told me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this scroll, because the time is near. 
Rev 22:11  Let the one who does wrong continue to do wrong; let the vile person continue to be vile; let the one who does right continue to do right; and let the holy person continue to be holy.” 
Rev 22:12  “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 
Rev 22:13  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. 
Rev 22:14  “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 
Rev 22:15  Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 
Rev 22:16  “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” 
Rev 22:17  The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. 
Rev 22:18  I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 
Rev 22:19  And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. 
Rev 22:20  He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 
Rev 22:21  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen. 

The Creation of the World
Gen 1:1
  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 
Gen 1:2  Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 
Gen 1:3  And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 
Gen 1:4  God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 
Gen 1:5  God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. 
Gen 1:6  And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 
Gen 1:7  So God made the vault and separated the water under the vault from the water above it. And it was so. 
Gen 1:8  God called the vault “sky.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day. 
Gen 1:9  And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 
Gen 1:10  God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:11  Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. 
Gen 1:12  The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:13  And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day. 
Gen 1:14  And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 
Gen 1:15  and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. 
Gen 1:16  God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. 
Gen 1:17  God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, 
Gen 1:18  to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:19  And there was evening, and there was morning—the fourth day. 
Gen 1:20  And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.” 
Gen 1:21  So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living thing with which the water teems and that moves about in it, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:22  God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” 
Gen 1:23  And there was evening, and there was morning—the fifth day. 
Gen 1:24  And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so. 
Gen 1:25  God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. 
Gen 1:26  Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 
Gen 1:27  So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 
Gen 1:28  God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 
Gen 1:29  Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 
Gen 1:30  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so. 
Gen 1:31  God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.  (NIV)
