Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed. Isaiah 28:16
Since the beginning of time , God has laid down a redemption plan for humanity. The chief cornerstone that is Jesus Christ. He is our rock, our foundation for the salvation of our souls. God revealed this prophecy to the Jewish people , many didn’t understand Gods plan back then and many still don’t understand Gods plan today. All our hope and victory stands on the foundation, “Chief Cornerstone” Jesus Christ.
Comparing the different translations, its says a tested stone (NASB) precious and costly (NIV) tried (KJV) firm (NLT) God is telling us we can rely and trust in Jesus. He has been battle tested and victorious over sin and death. He who believes will not be disturbed (NASB) not stricken with panic (NIV) Never be shaken (NLT) You can have the Peace of God when you stand on the “Cornerstone” , “The Rock”, the foundation of God
Jesus said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES ‘? Matthew 21:42
Jesus revealed this prophecy, he is the Chief Cornerstone, he is our Rock, and our Redeemer. Have you rejected Jesus just as the others have? Or will you stand on his Word, Hope, and Victory. Don’t build your life anywhere else but The Rock, when the storms of life come in, those who built on the Cornerstone wont be shaken or disturbed in Jesus Name Amen
