Revelation 22:5 Meaning and Commentary

Revelation 22:5

And there shall be no night there
This is repeated from ( Revelation 21:25 ) to express the certainty of it, and to observe, that the happiness of this state will greatly lie in the light thereof; it will be one everlasting day, (hmera aiwnov) , "day of eternity", or eternal day, as in ( 2 Peter 3:18 )

and they need no candle, nor the light of the sun;
neither artificial nor natural light; neither the dimmer light of the ceremonial law, under the legal dispensation, which was like a candle lighted up in Judea; nor the more clear light of the Gospel and its ordinances, under the present dispensation, which now will be at an end:

for the Lord God giveth them light;
immediately from himself, without the use of means and ordinances; and in his light the saints will see all things clearly; who will be always communicating it to them, and will be their everlasting light; (See Gill on Revelation 21:23).

and they shall reign for ever and ever;
they are made kings now, and in this state they shall reign with Christ for the space of a thousand years; and when they are ended, they shall not cease to reign; nor will Christ, when he delivers up the kingdom to the Father, for his and their kingdom is an everlasting one, ( Revelation 1:6 ) ( 5:10 ) ( 20:4 ) ( Daniel 7:27 ) and here ends the account of this glorious state of things; what follows is the conclusion of the whole book.

Revelation 22:5 In-Context

3 Never again will anything be cursed. The Throne of God and of the Lamb is at the center. His servants will offer God service - worshiping,
4 they'll look on his face, their foreheads mirroring God.
5 Never again will there be any night. No one will need lamplight or sunlight. The shining of God, the Master, is all the light anyone needs. And they will rule with him age after age after age.
6 The Angel said to me, "These are dependable and accurate words, every one. The God and Master of the spirits of the prophets sent his Angel to show his servants what must take place, and soon.
7 And tell them, 'Yes, I'm on my way!' Blessed be the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."
