Rejected? Relax… Psalms 118:22-23

corner stone

Rejected? relax… Psalms 118:22-23 The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes. 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. John 15:18 If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.

These first two scriptures are speaking of the same “Stone”, the prophesied Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), the “head of the corner” or “rosh pina”, in Hebrew. This stone is laid in Zion, a common synonym for Jerusalem, where mount Zion rests. The stone is “tried”, that is, tested in every way that a stone can be; the stone is precious and excellent to be set as a sure, reliable, accurate, even everlasting foundation, and a stone which is prepared and set in place by God, Himself. Can you think of a “Stone” more perfect or beautiful than our Messiah? Yet this same “stone” is rejected by the “builders”; but also believed in by others, who will not act hastily.

The Hebrew word for “rejected”, “ma-as”, carries even stronger meaning; “to abhor”, “cast away”, “despise”, “disdain”, and “be loathsome” are also denoted by it. So the “Rosh Pinah”, the “Chief Cornerstone” of God is spurned, abhorred, held in contempt, and rejected. Now the builders are the ones who ought to know a good stone for a building when they see one.

They’re responsible for the quality of the building. But this precious cornerstone is abhorred and cast away by them; very sad and irresponsible. Yet the prophet clearly predicts this stone will become the “Chief Cornerstone”, even though rejected by the builders — and that it will be marvelous in the eyes of some…and these will not “make haste”; the Hebrew “chuwsh” means to hurry, or even “to flee in alarm”. Apparently, those, who believe, will be at peace, they will be relaxed.Readers the Lord Yeshua (Jesus) said that our identification with Him would cause us to be hated and rejected too. And in this world, there are quite a few modern “builders” who have also rejected the “Chief Cornerstone”, so we can expect that they will reject and abhor us who belong to Him.

But the prophet said that believers in this Precious Cornerstone will not make haste, or flee in terror; instead, their belief, their faith, their trust will make them relaxed. Is that you? Your family in the Lord with much agape love, George, Baht Rivka, Elianna & Obadiah Arad, Israel.

Support SrhNews.Blog to help build a global news network that provides a credible source for world news We believe Christians need and deserve their own global news network to keep the worldwide Church informed, and to offer Christians a positive alternative to the anti-Christian bigotry of the mainstream news media. Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, it is painfully clear that the mainstream media covers liberals glowingly and conservatives critically.
Now journalists spread false, negative rumors about President Trump before any evidence is even produced.
