The Twelve Pillars Which Have the Many Different Stones
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily...
Here in Scripture is the idea of "approaching slowly" or not acting hastily or in a hurry; never stricken with panic or being shaken; believing and not being dominated by the grip of worry.
Our lives can be built into this secure, tried and true, precious spiritual foundation of the heavenly Jerusalem and it's twelve pillars which have the many different stones in them that represent all kinds of unique ministries to others. (Revelation 21:19-20 - The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth sardius, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst.)
The LORD has a place for all the willing persons on this earth, but it necessitates the willingness to also allow for a time(s) of getting prepared for it; (the forty years in the wilderness type of experience.)
Thus it is so important that we do not hurry if we want our lives, individually and corporately, to truly account, for "destinies completed" in Heavenly Father's Kingdom!
