Isaiah 28:16..Therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I lay in Zion a Stone for a foundation, A tried Stone, a Precious Cornerstone, a Sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily.
All the prophetic words from the prophets were penned down before they actually happened. God inspired these writings for our learning as we have discussed in our earlier Daily Words of Wisdom. God through the Gentile king revealed a Stone that would be cut out and would land on the feet of the image shown to Nebuchadnezzar, and the image would be crushed and the Stone would now fill the whole world.(Daniel 2::44-45). The scripture through Isaiah also revealed a Stone that is laid in Zion (the house of God) which will be a sure foundation, a tried Stone and it will be a precious Stone and whoever believes in this Stone will not panic but have peace no matter the situation that is happening in the world. Psalm 118 22 says,” the Stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Cornerstone. This is from the Lord and is His doing. It is marvelous in our eyes.” From the words of Jesus, we read in Matthew 21:42-44, “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 marvelous 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 whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder”. In the writings of Paul, Romans 9:33, says, “As it is written, Behold I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence and whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.”
From all these scriptures we have been informed about the plan of God concerning the purpose for sending our Lord Jesus to the planet earth. He came unto his own, but he was rejected and crucified and on the third day, God raised him up, and ever since His name has been working miracles, healing the sick, raising the dead, and casting out demons. He was the Stone, that though rejected, has now become Chief Cornerstone. The name of Jesus has spread throughout the world and those who believe in him, have been experiencing breakthroughs,and their lives have been transformed. Salvation is only in his name, there is no other name given unto men whereby we can be saved. There is no one that can get to God through any other means except through Jesus Christ. Therefore the scripture says “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life, For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned, but he that believes not, is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.(John 16-19).
Therefore brothers and sisters, if you have any one in your family that is yet to give his or her life to Christ , you need to start praying for him or her to receive Jesus Christ as his or her Savior. It does not matter how old or young they are, or how deep in sin they have been, we need to start praying for them for God to deliver them from the grip of Satan. If anyone is not in the Light, then he is in darkness where evil thrives. The kingdom of God is what we are witnessing now through Jesus Christ and his name will continue to reign until all the enemies are crushed under his feet. In the beautiful Psalm of David (Psalm 110) this was written concerning our Lord Jesus, “The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion, rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, thou hast the dew of thy youth. The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek . The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies, he shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way, therefore shall he lift up the head.”
Since we have the word with us, let us read to prepare ourselves as we are told that his second coming is imminent, and very soon the world will come to an end with Jesus Christ reigning as the King of kings and his reign will have no end. Those of us who are his will reign with him for ever and ever. It shall be so in Jesus name. Amen.
