Let’s finish this discussion about the stones of fire to see if we can reveal the meaning of the words of Mashiach:
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 3:7-9
But when he saw many of the Parashiym and Tsadoqiym come to his immersion, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Avraham to our father: for I say unto you, that YAH is able of these stones to raise up children unto Avraham.
Which stones? The stones of fire! The twelve stones which signify the whole of the house of Yisra’el! Is there a second witness within scripture?
Lucas (Luke) 3:4-8
As it is written in the cepher of the words of Yesha`yahu the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the Way of YAHUAH, make his paths straight. 5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; 6 And all flesh shall see the את eth the YAHUSHA of YAHUAH. 7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be immersed of him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Avraham to our father: for I say unto you, That YAHUAH is able of these stones to raise up children unto Avraham.
This teaching becomes beautiful in the scope of its meaning when we arrive at the following verse:
Lucas (Luke) 19:28-40
And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Yerushalayim. 29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Beyt Pag and Bethany, at the mount called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his Talmidiym, 30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. 31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because ADONAI has need of him. 32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. 33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 34 And they said, ADONAI has need of him. 35 And they brought him to YAHUSHA: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set YAHUSHA thereon. 36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. 37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the Talmidiym began to rejoice and praise YAH with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; 38 Saying, Blessed be the King that comes in the name of YAHUAH: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 39 And some of the Parashiym from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke your Talmidiym. 40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
Kepha discusses this and tells us a bit more about these stones, and one stone in particular.
Kepha Ri'shon (1 Peter) 2:2-10
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 3 If so be ye have tasted that YAHUAH is gracious. 4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of YAH, and precious, 5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to YAHUAH by YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH. 6 Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I lay in Tsiyon a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believes on him shall not be confounded. 7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of YAHUAH: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
With this passage, it can be seen that the twelve stones – the stones of fire – are known in the Hebrew as the word eben. Yet, Mashiach is the chief corner stone, elect and precious. Oh, yes! Beautiful! In the Hebrew, this chief corner stone is the eben rosh pinna.
One last passage:
Chizayon (Revelation) 21:19-20
And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
