While in my quiet time recently, the Holy Spirit showed me a very large cut diamond!
This Diamond was loaded with Thousands of Facets, it was probably the most complex GemStone I have ever seen. As I was observing this incredible Diamond Gem the Holy Spirit said,
Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone of sure foundation; he who believes (trusts in, relies on, and adheres to that Stone) will not be ashamed or give way or hasten away. (Isaiah 28:16, paraphrased)
As I heard this verse in my Spirit, I realized that anytime that I had read this verse in the past, the thought had never occurred to me that this “Stone” talked about could be a “Gem Stone”, and then another verse came to me right after this one:
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). But if anyone builds upon the Foundation, whether it be with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw… (1 Corinthians 3:11-12, paraphrased)
Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone in a foundation made up of Precious Stones!
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord:” (Ephesians 2:20-21, KJV, emphasis mine).
The Stone the builders rejected was the most Precious Stone out there, but they couldn’t see His value, because it was hidden from their view, but to those of us who love Him in this hour, He is unveiling new facets of His person to us and the reflection of God’s glory is coming forth to each of us in a different manifestation.
The more time I spend with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, the more He continues to reveal different facets of His existence to me by the Holy Spirit. While these revelations are distinctly different from each other, they are all still facets of the same stone that the builders rejected, but every revelation from the Holy Spirit will always point back to Jesus Christ!
Any revelation that doesn’t point to that Chief Cornerstone is not from the Holy Spirit! There are so many out there claiming to possess supernatural revelatory understanding, but if it doesn’t point you to Jesus, it didn’t come from the Holy Spirit. For the Holy Spirit came to reveal Jesus Christ and to draw you deeper into a relationship with Him and with the Father in every way. If that is not the end result of the revelation you’re receiving, then you need to be wary of it, because it’s leading you somewhere else.
The Holy Spirit is bringing forth deeper insights for many in this hour, and greater revelation of the different facets of God’s glory and His goodness which are being brought forth right now, and as they come forth we will find ourselves reflecting those aspects of Him in the days and months to come, for the mirror of our lives will shine Him forth to others in the same way that we beheld Him personally!
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever-increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18, paraphrased)
Be prepared for the mirror of your life to become a reflection of greater aspects of His glory and goodness as more facets of the Precious Stone He is, gets revealed going forwards! Draw us closer, Jesus, and show us your glory through every facet of your life that we might be a reflection of Your goodness to all man!
