The Corner Stone
@ Cathedral Church of Prayer
In both the Old and New Testaments, God refers to Jesus Christ as the “Corner Stone.” However, in our Modern society we do not have the respect and regard for large corner stones as ancients societies did. Often if there is something ancient or may have ancient meaning, especially if it is in an inconvenient place or way, we may just get a bulldozer and move it, or we blow it apart with dynamite, which was simply not the case or allowed to do in the ancient world. Usually an “inconvenient” boulder in the road would be inconvenient for generations, and such a large stone or even building would be allowed to remain even after its foundation and the walls of buildings had fallen and the remains had often to be set in place by many men working under the orders of the king or government. History with its visable signs and nonations were very important.
When God refers to Jesus Christ, His Son with various stone analogies ( as the Chief Corner Stone), it is important that we take the time to reflect upon the fact that God is saying a word and what He means in a corner stone to our lives, because just as a real stone can be viewed from different angles, so can the “Chief Rock,” Jesus Christ" be seen (1 Cor. 10:4).
"We place Corner Stones upon Our Temples in the Christ Internationtal Churches Bodies throughout the world."
