THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
God has laid the Foundation of His Holy Temple in Jesus Christ alone!
And, anyone who seeks to change it, shall build on shifting sand!
Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
The temple of the Lord is the CHURCH.
Jesus is the "Branch" of God.
Jesus is the "Cornerstone," for this temple, laid by God Himself.
For Christ came in real life to shine the light of truth and holiness upon the path of salvation and redemption.
Jesus is the "Cornerstone" from which all other stones must be measured!
The members, or other stones of this temple are "strangers and foreigners" who have been made "fellowcitizens" with Christ by the "habitation of God through the Spirit."
We, you and I, fellow believers are parts of this great temple Christ is STILL building!
As the stone yields to the master builder, so must we yield to our Lord!
The only "peace" we can have is through Christ our Lord!
We must be honed by the Master, sanded by the Word, and placed by the Spirit of God!
Be stones my friends!
