King James Version (KJV)
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God (Elohim); And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ (the Messiah YHshua) himself being the chief corner stone…” HalleluYH…. !!!!!
Similar to Paul, in the days of King Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel, a true prophet of YHWH (the “HE IS or I AM”), shares how and what the Stone or Rock (Word and Works of Elohim) will conclude for humanity – this as portrayed in YH’s revelation of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. It is in this dream that Daniel sees a strewn (cut not chiseled) Rock or Stone (the Word and Works of El) taken from the side of a mountain”, sound familiar? Hint, the ten commandments! what we also call the set-apart Word of Elohim – indeed the ten commandments, who Moses and YHshua also take mention to. This Rock or Stone was cast down to the feet of the nations (the fearful image of man’s rule being destroyed, the image of a self righteous man – head of gold). This Rock or Stone (the Word’s salvation) is the same Word that Moses casts to the feet of a disobedient nation (Israel), the tablets (YH’s Word – the Ten Commandments), both Daniel and Moses showing how the wrath of the Word is being cast at the feet of the nations, nations that took “It” for granted (in vain), leading to certain destruction.
Imagine that, an awesome image of the destruction of man-made governance spread out throughout 100’s of years, the definitive message? that we learn we are to stay focused on preserving YH’s Word. Solomon is another example to the story of the Rock or Stone the 10 commandments eventually put in a building that was strewn (cut) out of Rock or Stone (the temple), teaching that – that which is within the temple must have the Word to individually avoid certain destruction such as that which follows Israel upon Solomon’s falling: That YH’s Word through Daniel is consistent to other chosen men and women of YH and into modernity (the latter days).
In this dream we see an image of a man with four, arguably five parts, the golden head (the Persian empire), the silver chest (Persian Mede empire), the brass thigh (the Greek empire), and the legs of iron (the ancient Roman empire). Also, supporting the governance of man (the body), we see feet that are made of iron (today’s Rome – #5 – man’s governance) and clay (that which in time is molded – man’s belief systems); how that Rock or Stone is cast at it’s feet, which symbolizes the old Roman kingdom, a mixture of iron and clay, that of today’s man made governments (all forms) and false religion, a helper to governance: An example to this can be found in history, how the role of the Roman Catholic Church helped to build varied kingdoms starting with the Roman empire (a false molder or Anti-messiah), these eventually leading to man-made governments (democracies) that unwittingly were built on pagan religious principles which would prove to spearhead worldwide democracies: But Grace would abound from Adam forward.
A truth most do not want to accept!!!!! No wonder YH’s salvation, the Word and Works of YHWH (YHshua the rock) prophecied that this image of a man (the governments) would be brought to the ground, for their very foundation was not built on the truth of YHWH (on solid ground), also promising that His government will come to rule on earth, as it should have always been. That not one unstrewn rock (false religion) will remain standing as YHshua made sure to share, that of the “not one stone would remain over another”, the 70AD destruction of the temple, were false religion had been allowed by the priests (we are called to be priests of His truth not man’s) to creep into YH’s temple; an unsustainable thing:
In summary, YH’S SALVATION (the Rock or YHshua) WILL CRUSH INIQUITY (crush the anti-messiah) ON EARTH (IN US) – NO DIFFERENT TO THE STONE (THE 10 COMMANDMENTS) THAT CRUSHED THE CALF OF GOLD; IN LIKE FASHION, HOW THE CORNER STONE (YHSHUA) WILL FINISH DOING UPON HIS RETURN – THAT THE OBEDIENT CHILD OF YHWH, THE RIGHTEOUS MAN /WOMAN, MAY LIVE IN ETERNAL SHALOM (PEACE). PARAPHRASING YHSHUA, “MAY YOUR (ELOHIM’S) WILL (WORD AND WORKS) BE DONE ON EARTH (IN US) AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. AMEIN.
