Revelation 22:1-21

John continues from Revelation chapter 21 regarding the new heaven and the new earth - together - including his description of the city of the new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1 - 22:5).

Revelation 22:1-5 shows some similarities and differences between the original mankind in his environment (refer to Genesis chapters 1-3) and the new mankind in his new environment which will be the Paradise of God that will exist again on earth.

As we read these verses, we should understand that between Revelation 20:15 and Revelation 21:1 - all the people who will be judged righteous (just) to receive eternal life will have their natural, physical, fleshy, soulish bodies changed into new spiritual bodies like the Lord Jesus Christ has already received, and like the holy-people (Christians) will receive at the time of their gathering together away from the earth by the Lord Jesus Christ immediately before the implementation of God's wrath.

We should also note that all the people in the new heaven and the new earth will continue to be required to interact with God and with the Lord Jesus Christ. We will need to partake of the water of the life; we will need to partake of the tree of the life - its fruits and its leaves - so that each one of us will continue to live at the best capacity to be attained in whatever role and/or whatever tasks that will be assigned to us during that future time.

Revelation 22:1-5:
22:1And he pointed-out to me (the) river of water of life shining as crystal journeying-out from the throne of God and of the little-lamb. .2In (the) midst of her wide-street and of the river from-here and from-here (is the) tree of life making twelve fruits, according to each month giving-away the fruit of it, and the leaves of the tree (are) with-a-view-to attendance of the nations; .3and every curse yet will not be. 
And the throne of God and of the little-lamb will be in her; and His slaves will render-service to Him, .4and they will see His face, and His name (will be) on their foreheads; .5and night yet will not be, and they do not have a need of a light of a lamp and a light of a sun because the Lord God will lighten on them, and they will reign-as-kings into the ages of the ages.

And the angel pointed-out to me (he indicated, as pointing with his finger to me; refer to Revelation 21:9 and 10)...

In the midst (middle, center)...

...is the tree of life (the living wood - referring to a literal tree that demonstrates God's life being available to those who partake of it; refer to Revelation 2:7 and 21:4)...

And the throne of God and of the small lamb (representing the Lord Jesus Christ; as verse 1 above) will be within the city of the new Jerusalem...

...and night will not still be (there will not be any nighttime, no time of darkness, no longer night, there will not be night anymore so as to stop God's slaves rendering service to/for Him)...
