You boast, ‘We have entered into a covenant with death, with the grave we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie, our refuge and falsehood, our hiding place.’ So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious Cornerstone for a sure foundation. The one who trusts will never be dismayed.’

– Isaiah 28:15-16

The Cornerstone, Part I.

The Stone the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone.
By the LORD has this been done this and it is wonderful
in our eyes.

– Psalm 118:22-23

Part. I. Seeing Eye to Eye about the Cornerstone

Welcome to the Cornerstone Series, a continuing set of articles and posts mostly about the Eye of the Pyramid and the Star of David. Here are just a few examples of what this mysterious symbol actually means when it comes to meeting eye to eye about metaphor and allusion:


Abel, the lamb slain since the foundation of the world.



Solomon was in a different category, because he ruled over the denizens of the upper world as well as of the lower. (Babylonian Talmud, Mo’ed IV, Megillah 11b)


The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. (Psalm 118:22)

 


So the LORD put a mark on Cain, lest anyone should kill him at sight. (Genesis 4:15)

 


The princes of Zoan have acted foolishly, the princes of Memphis are deluded. Those who are the cornerstone of her tribes have led Egypt astray.(Isaiah 19:13)

It forced all the people…to be given a mark on their right hand or their forehead, so that no one could buy or sell except one who had the mark of the beast. (Revelation 13:16-17)


The LORD says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.’ (Isaiah 28:16)


Solomon was in a different category, because he ruled over the denizens of the upper world as well as of the lower.(Babylonian Talmud, Mo’ed IV, Megillah 11b)

‘No rock will be taken from you for a cornerstone, nor any stone for a foundation, for you will be desolate forever,’ declares the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:26)

 


The gold that Solomon received every year weighed 666 gold talents. (I Kings 10:14)

 

Then I saw another angel…holding the seal of the living God. He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels…‘Do not damage the land or the sea or the trees until we put the seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.’ I heard the number of those who had been marked with the seal, one hundred and forty-four thousand marked from every tribe of the Israelites. (Revelation 7:2-4)

This calls for wisdom: let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666. (Revelation 13:18)

 


Legend states that Christ was crucified with three 9 inch metal nails.


The calm, deceitful eye of Cain who was ‘a murderer from the beginning [and] when he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of all lies.’ (John 8:44)


Number 9, Number 9, Number 9. (Revloution, by the Beatles, the White Album)

 


God will wipe away tears from off all faces. This means from the faces of non-Jews as well as Jews. (Babylonian Talmud, Genesis Rabba 26)

Medical science tells us that, for whatever reason, our eyes actually see everything upside down. The brain is then required to reverse the images it receives, thus resulting in normal visual perception .

If all your life is given up to the pursuit of earthly things, it is quite consistent for you to look downwards; but if you pursue the higher life, look upwards. (Talmud, Midrash Psalms 32)


‘Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground.’ (Genesis 4:11)

The Four Elements and the Cornerstone

The Four Cornerstone (Judeo-Christian) Elements, which still hold scientific validity, are Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. When combined together, they form a hexagram, or a Star of David. The ancient symbols representing these four elements can be seen as follows:

I. The Element of Earth
II. The Element of Air
III. The Element of Water
Element Ikons
IV. The Element of Fire

The practice of Judeo-Christian Magick and Witchkraft involves the manipulation of these symbols, which naturally combine to form the Star of David. The traditional understanding of this concept can be visualized in a variety of ways as can be seen below:

I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the [red] dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled…And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.- Revelation 20

He carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; and had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. – Revelation 21:10-14

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He leads beside green pastures and past the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me on the right path for the sake of His name. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for the LORD is with me. With his rod and staff he comforts me. He prepares a table for me in the sight of my enemies. He anoints my head, my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and Iwill dwell in the House of the LORD forever.
