Twelve Foundation Stones
“You also as living stones are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood”…You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood…a holy nation a priesthood forever after the Order of Melchizedek.” (1Pe 2:4 Heb 5/6)
The twelve Foundation Stones were encased on the breastplate of the High Priest. These twelve Stones are representative of the twelve Tribes of Israel; the Heads of the Hebrew Nations of Chosen People.
These twelve stones represent the fundamental Ideas of G-D for the rule of the Kingdom of G-D.
Each Stone depicts and corresponds to a prevailing thought and characteristic of righteousness in YAH’s Order in laying the Foundations of Zion and lies within the facilities of the mind of man. These thoughts and divine characteristics aid in the restoration of man to their rightful place in the order of creation.
Also encased on the breastplate, on the shoulders of the High Priest, were Uram and Thumman. Just as the prophets and apostles represents the oracle or voice of G-D, so also was the High Priest or Christ the instrument used to relay the heart of G-D to the people. The High Priest represents the Cap Stone or Corner Stone to build up the Foundations of a ‘body’ or Nation of Christ’s—“So that you too may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to G-D”. “As the Scriptures says, ‘I AM laying a stone in ZION, a Chosen, Precious Conerstone” for believers to be built upon the Christ Principles of the Foundation Stones. However, the rejection of these Foundation Stones who form the foundations upon the Cornerstone has become a stumbling block for many. They stumble because they do not believe or obey the Word; they do not walk in the Christ Principles and the Mysteries of entering into the Kingdom eludes them. Therefore, they walk in darkness of Light. The Christ Principles are the light that illumes the pathway to ZION. YAHshua (Jesus) the Christ was the representation of God’s idea of the perfect man in expression. The Christ was the absolute idea of G-D perfected in man.
When we become established in the Christ Principles, our mind is renewed; we therefore, become a precious stone sparkling in the hands of G-D having been grounded in Christ Consciousness in grace, mercy and truth. We can enter into the New Jerusalem or are restored to our birthplace of Zion. This is when we have come to the realization of the Divine within us in that heavenly place of the mind. We know what is lawful for us and are set free from all error or man’s perceptions of how we should live our life.
The New Man will enter the New Jerusalem. Only those born in ZION can become those Foundation Stones. Provisions were made for us all to sparkle as stones with the effulgence of G-D. However, YAH has a “fixed” Order and a Divine Hierarchy that was laid out in the Book of Timothy for those in Christiandome. Do not be fooled to think that there are not other Enlightened Ones or prophets who are not Christians. Even the Christman said “Before Abraham was I AM”. Regardless of what many may think YAHshua, the Christman of whom Christians call Jesus was not a Christian. He was a Hebrew from the tribe of Judah.
The Foundation Stones are in and dwell in ZION. They are the Gates or the gateway into ZION and continually minister before G-D. The Law; G-D’s Word is proclaimed from ZION! The Psalmist said, “The Lord loves these Gates of ZION more than all the others…glorious things are spoken of you…I shall mention Rahab and Babylon among those who know me; Philista and Tyre with Ethiopia, this one was born there, but of ZION it shall be said this one and that one was born in Her”.
Earlier I stated that each of the 12 Foundation Stones represented a prevailing characteristic of righteousness that represents the fundamental Ideas of the Divine Mind of G-D to build up ZION. If one have not been cultivated or planted on these Ideas or Principles they cannot enter beyond the veil into the presence of YAH or see G-D face to Face. This is not to say that they are not heavenly citizens.
In the days of old, only the High Priest could enter the Holy of Holies. This was an exemplary and prophetic inference to the Christman, the “Firstborn among many”.
Only the firstborns, without spot and wrinkles or those enlightened ones or the prophets and apostles who has become Teleios (mature and perfected) will come face to Face with G-D. These pillars of truth represented in the Most Holy Place are the firstborn inheritors to the priesthood. They are the oracles of YAH who through their teachings bring others who have not yet reached maturity or whose call is in other areas of ministry into the presence of G-D. These enlightened ones have received a double portion as their inheritance along with double culpability and a double anointing in their own order, at their level of administration. Therefore, the saying; “Many are the called few have been chosen”. For example, we are all citizens of the heavenly village but we are not all chiefs.
The Psalmist says, “G-D has spoken and summoned the earth to judge His people out of ZION the perfection of beauty…gather My faithful who sealed My Covenant by sacrifice. The sacrifices to G-D are a broken spirit, a broken contrite heart. In your graciousness do good to ZION-rebuild. Then you will delight in upright sacrifices.” (50, 51) In other words, be restored and renewed in your mind then your sacrifices will be received and your prayers answered. “Believe in Yahweh, your G-D and you will be secure. Believe in His prophets and you will have success. (Chr 20:20)
The names of the 12-tribes were encased in jewels on the breastplate of the High Priest. The blessings conferred upon the heads of each Nation and their names hold the characteristics and Divine Ideas that made them the Foundation of ZION.Apostle Rubie James
