The Stone Of Contempt

The Stone Of Contempt…

In Psalm 118 it is written: “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.” In Hebrew there’s a very striking word used. It’s the word “ma’as.” “Ma’as” means more than rejected.

Jesus is the stone. And according to the Hebrew “ma’as” – He, as the stone, would be spurned, abhorred, held in contempt, despised, loathed. And so He was.

“Ma’as” also means “cut off” – a Biblical way of saying “killed.” So Jesus was killed – crucified. Now, if the first part of that ancient prophecy was fulfilled by Messiah Yeshua, Jesus, in precise detail, then so, too, will be the second.

The rejected stone will become the chief cornerstone.” He will be lifted up as the final and most glorious crowning stone of the Kingdom of Israel. That’s the way of Jesus, the Cornerstone.

If you are His follower then it’s true for you, too. Every rejection, every pain, every wound, and every wrong you’ve ever suffered in your life, will be turned around and for your good as the Lord lifts you up and turns every sorrow to glory. For that is the final chapter of the Stone of Contempt.

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:“ ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.’

What is it in your life that needs to be turned around? Give it to Jesus – And trust Him to turn it for good.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
