"Wherefore, I am in your midst, and I AM the Good Shepherd, and THE STONE OF ISRAEL. He that buildeth upon THIS ROCK shall never fall." --- [D&C 50: 44]


"47 Whosoever cometh to Me, AND HEARETH MY SAYINGS, AND DOETH THEM, I will show you to whom he is like:"

"48 He is like a man which built a house, and digged deep, AND LAID THE FOUNDATION ON A ROCK: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that upon that house, and could not shake it: FOR IT WAS FOUNDED UPON A ROCK."

"49 BUT HE THAT HEARETH, AND DOETH NOT, is like a man that without a foundation built a house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." --- [Luke 6: 47-49 - Bible]


"But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked; thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; THEN HE FORSOOK GOD WHICH MADE HIM, AND LIGHTLY ESTEEMED THE ROCK OF HIS SALVATION. ... Of THE ROCK THAT BEGAT THEE thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten GOD THAT FORMED THEE." --- [ Deuteronomy 32: 15 & 18 - Bible]


"1 Then the Lord answered Job OUT OF THE WHIRLWIND, and said, ... "

"4 Where wast thou when I LAID THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH? Declare, if thou hast understanding."

"6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? OR WHO LAID THE CORNER STONE THEREOF;"

"7 WHEN THE MORNING STARS SANG TOGETHER, AND ALL THE SONS OF GOD SHOUTED FOR JOY?" --- [Job 38: 1 & 4-7 - Bible]


"THE STONE which the builders refused IS BECOME THE HEAD STONE OF THE CORNER." --- [Psalm 118: 22 - Bible]


"Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THE SAME IS BECOME THE HEAD OF THE CORNER: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes." --- [Matthew 21: 42 - Bible]


"18 And it came to pass as He was alone praying, His disciples were with him: and He asked them, saying, Whom say the people that I am?"

"19 They answering said, John the Baptist; but some say, Elias; and others, say, that one of the old prophets is risen again."

"20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God."

"21 And He straightly charged the to tell no man that thing;"

22 Saying, The Son of Man must suffer many things, AND BE REJECTED OF THE ELDERS AND CHIEF PRIESTS AND SCRIBES, and be slain, and be raised the third day." --- [Luke 9: 18-22 - Bible]

"6 Wherefore it also contained in the scripture, BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHIEF CORNER STONE, elect, PRECIOUS: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded."

"7 UNTO YOU THEREFORE WHICH BELIEVE HE IS PRECIOUS: but unto them which be disobedient,"

{This is off-subject but interesting to perceive (while I was adding the above scripture). Note that 'belief' is associated with 'obedience!' How true that is! You cannot truly believe in the Saviour unless you are obedient to the Saviour:}

"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 OFFENSE, EVEN TO THEM THAT STUMBLE AT THE WORD, BEING DISOBEDIENT: whereunto also they were appointed." --- [1st Peter 2: 6-8 -Bible]

"20 Who verily was FOREORDAINED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, but was manifest in these last times for you," --- [1st Peter 1: 18-20 - Bible]


"3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats; FOR THE LORD of Hosts HATH VISITED HIS FLOCK THE HOUSE OF JUDAH, and hath made THEMas His goodly horse in the battle."

"4 O>UT OF HIM CAME FORTH THE CORNER, {Out of Judah came forth the Corner Stone: the Saviour, Jesus Christ, the Corner Stone, was born in the tribe of Judah} out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together." --- [Zechariah 10: 3-4 - Bible]


"FOR IT IS EVIDENT THAT OUR LORD SPRANG OUT OF JUDAH; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning Priesthood." --- [Hebrews 7: 14 - Bible]


"14 But behold, THE JEWS WERE A STIFFNECKED PEOPLE; AND THEY DESPISED THE WORDS OF PLAINNESS, AND KILLED THE PROPHETS, AND SOUGHT FOR THINGS THAT THEY COULD NOT UNDERSTAND. Wherefore, because of their blindness, which blindness came by looking beyond the mark, they must needs fall; for God hath taken away His plainness unto them, and delivered unto them many things which they cannot understand, because they desired it. And because they desired it, God hath done it, that they may stumble."

"15 And now I, Jacob, am led on by the Spirit unto prophesying: for I perceive by the workings of the Spirit which is in me, that BY THE STUMBLING OF THE JEWS THEY WILL REJECT THE STONE UPON WHICH THEY MIGHT BUILD AND HAVE SAFE FOUNDATION."

"16 But behold, according to the scriptures, THIS STONE SHALL BECOME THE GREAT, AND THE LAST, AND THE ONLY SURE FOUNDATION, UPON WHICH THE JEWS CAN BUILD." --- [Jacob 4: 14-16 - The Book of Mormon]


{The below verse is an excellent example of how unhumble people can argue a scripture or a truth statement. Jesus knew the woman was humble, and perhaps that is why He stated: Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: FOR SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS. ... If He had said that to a person or to a people who rejected Him, they might have argued with Him. Likewise, we could say, Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: FOR SALVATION IS OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS. ... We could say this to someone who is humble enough to receive it; but there are many unhumble people who reject The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and if we were to make such a bold statement as that, we would be in a roaring argument perhaps. Therefore such a statement needs to only be said when and if The Holy Ghost directs you to make such a claim. But this is true of all of His teachings: they should only be done through the direction of the Holy Ghost."

"13 And they shall observe the covenants and church articles to do them, and these shall be their teachings, AS THEY SHALL BE DIRECTED BY THE SPIRIT."

"14 AND THE SPIRIT SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO YOU BY THE PRAYER OF FAITH; AND IF YE RECEIVE NOT THE SPIRIT YE SHALL NOT TEACH." --- [D&C 42: 13-14]


"22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: FOR SALVATION IS OF THE JEWS. ..."

{Does this mean that you should become Jewish? Heaven forbid! What it means is that the Saviour was born of the Jews, and The first Gospel and Church of Jesus Christ came through The Jews. But The Gospel of Jesus Christ is no more Jewish than the Catholics are Christian! To be Christian is not in word or falsely proclaiming that you Christian, but in accepting and living the true doctrines of Jesus Christ. It doesn't matter if you are baptized as the Catholics and the Baptists want to baptize you, false baptisms have no eternal significance (they may make you feel good for a time, much like a hot bath does) but only the authorized baptism of the Church that THE GOD OF HEAVEN SET UP - Daniel 2: 28 & 44 - is acceptable unto God, having eternal significance. The thousand other churches baptizing are unacceptable to God and have no eternal significance other than they take you away, pull you down, and influence you to not believe in the true baptism and doctrines of salvation.}"

"25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things."

26" Jesus saith unto her, I THAT SPEAK UNTO THEE AM HE." --- [John 4: 22 & 25-26 - Bible] {There are some that would take this verse as boasting; as the Saviour boasting that He is the Messias. But it is a statement of fact that He does here; not a boast. In Hebrews 6: 13 is a similar scripture that could, by wicked men who understand it not, be called a boast: "FOR WHEN GOD MADE PROMISE TO ABRAHAM, BECAUSE HE COULD SWARE BY NO GREATER, HE SWARE BY HIMSELF" ...}


{And I bear testimony of these truths about The Rock, The Stone, and The Cornerstone, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN." - (Elder Erving Axel Lambert - 2/5/2017}
