THE CHURCH OF CHRIST 6
The Stone Of David
The Rock Of Jesus (March 26, 2016)
“Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste, Isaiah 28:16, King James Version [Christ is promised])...Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whomsoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder....(St. Matthew 21:42-46, King James Version [The parable of the vineyard; Psalms 118:22,23, King James Version, the refused now the head corner stone; St. Mark 12:10-11, King James Version, parable of vineyard and rejected stone now head of the corner; St. Luke 20:17, 18, King James Version [parable of the vineyard; The Acts 4:11, King James Version [The persecution of the disciples, the parable of the vineyard; Ephesians 2:20, King James Version, [chief corner stone]; I Peter 2:6,7,8,9 [Christ the corner stone; disallowed stone head of the corner...And a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient:whereunto also they were appointed...]).
Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus,
My brothers and sisters, Christ the stone and the rock shows the succession of the Church of Christ since the Prophet Samuel anointed King David, with Peter [and upon this rock I will build my church].
This is the power of slaying giants, casting out demons, devils, and dragons, the healing power that raised the dead, healed the lame, the dumb, lepers and sinners began with the sanctification of Christ Jesus in the children of Israel back during the time of Moses, the stone and the rock was promised and established when Christ Jesus was crucified on the cross---charged with blasphemy, simply because they knew not what they did---the priests as prophesied by Christ Jesus in the parable of the vineyard:
“And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Take the rod, and gather thou
the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother and speak ye unto the
rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring
forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and
their beasts drink.
And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the
rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water
out of this rock?
And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice:
and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their
And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me
not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall
not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.
This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with
the LORD, and he was sanctified in them” (Numbers 20:7-13, KJV [The
people want water and the rock, Christ Jesus was sanctified in them at the
rock in Horeb known as Meriba or Massah Exodus 17:4,5,6,7, KJV [The
Lord My Provider].
This is the same power that spoke to the woman at the well and invited the woman of Samaria to
drink to heal her and stop her endless search for the right man (St. John 4:9,10,11,12,13,14,15, KJV[gift of God...living water]; the patience of Christ Jesus and God showed the children of Israel patience when they believed not in God and trusted not in his salvation during the time of Moses and during the time of God's great works (Psalm 78:12-39, KJV [God's patience with Israel]). The children of Israel remembered during the time of Moses that God was their rock and the high God their redeemer (verse 35): “And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.” Most importantly, we understand that the same power of God the high God their rock and redeemer was the same power of Christ Jesus, the Son of God, the God man, who walked amongst the people, as their rock and who built his church on Peter who became the rock, so the parable of the vineyard as prophesied by Prophet Isaiah of a precious stone---a foundation, a corner stone, was the truth of Christ promised (Isaiah 28:16, KJV [Christ promised]).
