God speaks through precious stones…

Speaking of sapphires!

Here’s one for s&p, to encourage you on some of the amazing facts about certain precious stones, which, until recently, only God knew, as related by the wonderful David Pawson in an interview, who beautifully demonstrates how the Bible is God-inspired.

It also goes some way to intelligently, gently, and factually refute the aforementioned atheists, without having to resort to London bus promos! 

Basically, it’s all about the way pure light interacts with certain precious stones, and what we can expect in the New Jerusalem – twelve anisotropic precious stones! 

It’s a little too technical for me to write it all out here, but well worth spending five minutes looking at.

  1. Read about this three years ago when my mate showed me some of his research in proving the sciences of the bible.

    Thanks FL. Nice hearing it again.

  2. I’ve studied geology and mineralogy so I was impressed when I fist heard about this. From what I remember there are 28 known world wide gems. For John to guess this would be one in thirty million or something. I concluded the reason why these stones were chosen for the walls was to represent the fulfillment of all promises to mankind through Christ. (Rainbow symbolising promise with Noah).

    I’ve been researching with a mate, the connection between Lucifer’s role in Ezekiel 28 before his fall in the garden, with Christ’s role (how he was chosen out of the assembly of angels, Heb 1), in relation to the stones on the high priests breastplate and the stones on these walls.

    I’m coming to the conclusion that Lucifer did have an office like Christ as priest due to the description given to him in relation to stones in Ezekiel 28:

    EZEKIEL.28:12-19 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering (embellishment), the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets (tamborine) and of thy pipes ( a jewelers term for a socket or cavity) was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

    The high priests plate was different to lucifers and Jesus’ is different again. As King High Priest, and as representatives of our King High Priest, the New Jerusalem walls reflect His priestly authority which He shares with us. The light filled stones representing further that he is the true Light of Lights and the fulfillment of all things.

  3. David Pawson is a top bloke, even if he can be controversial. (in a good way, challenging way, clarifying your thought kind of way)
