1 Peter 2:5-9 (NIV) 5you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6For in Scripture it says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame."
In this scripture we are referred to as LIVING STONES built up as a Spiritual house. The implication is that these “living stones” are JEWELS in process. Literal gems form in the the earth’s mantle and go through a process of shaping and pushing up.
In Exodus 28 we read about the breastplate on Aaron’s ephod representing the 12 tribes of Israel depicting her journey of shaping and these stones also prophetically reveal our part in the process of God building His house.
Gems represent: Strength/ Consistency/ Brillance/ Purity/ Light/ Royalty/ Character. These 12 stones go on to reveal a process and a journey of life that refines each one of us into become precious stones in the hand of God. The Ruby represents Praise, the Topaz, to Reveal, Carbuncle, to Dwell, Emerald, to Expand, Sapphire, to Restore, Diamond represents Strength, Jacinth, to Transition, Agate, to Transform, Amethyst, is Vision, Beryl, is Knowledge, Onyx, represents Wisdom, and Jasper, is to Polish.
Revelation 21:19, says; “And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones.” (the New Jerusalem). The stones listed in the New Jerusalem are the same as those in Aaron’s Breastplate.
Abraham: Looked for a CITY (polis) with foundation whose builder and maker is God (Heb.11:10)
The 12 tribe names on gates and the 12 apostle names in the foundation are not about glorifying them or their names, but represents their role in God’s plan to restore His blueprint.)Ephesians 2:19-22 19Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the LORD: 22In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
The TREASURE (God’s jewels) in you are HIDDEN and in development to push up through you and manifest His glory to the world! This is why corrupted world systems are shaking and melting as the brilliant LIGHT of God's treasure reveals His original blueprint through you like a mighty volcano of CHANGE.
