God’s promise

Blessed Are Those Who Wash Their Robes

Blessed Are Those Who Wash Their Robes

Revelation 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.”

Promise of Eternal Life

The book of Revelation unveils vivid imagery and symbolism, revealing God’s ultimate plan for His people and the final judgment of the wicked.

Among these beautiful scenes is the vision of the new Jerusalem—a holy city descending from heaven to be the dwelling place of God and His people.

In this celestial city, sorrow and pain are no more. Death has been conquered, and the old order of things has passed away (Revelation 21:4). The city’s brilliance emanates from the glory of God and the Lamb, banishing darkness forever (Revelation 21:23).

At its heart stands the tree of life, bearing twelve abundant crops of fruit, yielding sustenance every month. Its leaves bring healing to the nations (Revelation 22:2).

Symbolism of the Tree of Life

The tree of life symbolizes God’s abundant provision and blessings for His people. It reminds of Eden, where God placed the first humans and granted them access to this life-giving tree.

Sadly, sin led to their banishment from God’s presence (Genesis 2:9; 3:22-24).

Yet, in the new creation, God restores humanity to its original state of innocence and joy. He extends an invitation: wash your robes, cleanse your hearts, and partake of the tree of life.

Eternal life awaits those who love Him and obey His commands.

Washing Our Robes: The Key to the City

  • How can we claim this promise?
  • How do we enter the celestial city?

The answer lies in washing our robes—symbolic of repentance, forgiveness, and purity.

As we turn from sin, our garments become white as snow (Isaiah 1:18).

“Come now, let us settle the matter,”
    says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
    they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
    they shall be like wool.

Through Christ’s sacrifice, we gain the right to partake of the tree of life and dwell eternally in God’s presence.
