Michael Jackson Justice: The Living Stone

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

The Living Stone



A Friend Like Ben





From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto mount Sion, which is Hermon,"

In honor of Mother’s Day we went deeper into the subject of the mother who brings forth: the woman whose child the dragon was waiting to devour and the daughter of Zion; and how they were one in the same.

The “virgin daughter of Zion” we learned, is a “virgin unto God” and a “daughter with God”; and as the “labored to bring forth” was a spiritual birth so is the virginity of she who did not spiritually whore after other gods.

We also learned that what the “dragon” was seeking to devour was he whom she brought forth: what was revealed to the daughter of Zion through “The Word”, the “man child” who is caught up to God and to his throne.  And the dragon who is thrown into the earth never again to enter heaven makes “war with the remnant of her seed” – which she brought forth in her travail, Isaiah 66:7-8.

There were a number of “sons brought to glory so that the captain of our salvation is made perfect through sufferings” in Hebrews 2:10, so there exists more than one “daughter of Zion” in the time of man, and not all of them succeed in remaining “virgins of God”, as evidenced in Isaiah 3:16-17 and 4:4.   This “sore travail” is also spoken of in Ecclesiastes 1:13, given to the sons of men who seek and search out wisdom of the things done under heaven.

Zion also appears as “Sion” in both the Old and New Testaments.   Sion appears first in the Deuteronomy verse listed up under the title of this entry:

From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto mount Sion, which is Hermon,"

“Mount Zion” is mentioned 33 times in the scriptures.  In 2 Kings 19:31 it says that “out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion”.

In Psalms 74:2 David prays “Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, where thou hast dwelt.”  And in Psalms 125:1, David sings “They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever.

It is hard to determine with these if Zion is a stumbling block or a blessing.  Isaiah 29:8 tells us that those who fight against mount Zion will be left empty, and in Lamentations 5:18 the “mountain of Zion” is desolate, because none look to the Lord. 

In Joel 2:32, those who “call upon the name of the Lord” shall be delivered, out of Zion and Jerusalem, and “in the remnant whom the Lord shall call”.

In Micah 4:2, the “law shall go forth out of Zion, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”  What then does this mean from Paul to the Romans.

But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.   Wherefore?  Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law.  For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offense: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

What does this mean?  What is the “stumblingstone”?  Paul assigns a gender to the “stumblingstone”: “whosoever believeth on him”.  Israel searches righteousness through the works of the law not by faith, and you know who you are.

I was told “when are you going to get off the wall? Lest I make the same mistake.”

In the first mention of “Sion” in Deuteronomy 4:48, it says “mount Sion, which is Hermon”; and in Micah 4:2, we’re told that “the law shall go forth out of Zion”,  and “the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem”.  Is the key to understanding this in “Hermon”?

"The name Hermon comes from the complicated verb חרם (haram), meaning to designate something or someone to one the two possible ways the afterlife can be enjoyed:

The root-verb חרם (haram I) reflects a difficult theological concept and additionally demonstrates how different the classic Hebrew world view was from ours. Our verb basically designates something or someone to the afterlife, whichever way that can go. More technically: our verb appears to describe a transition between two stages. On the initial stage exists one continuum. On the second stage exist two continuums, formed from the initial one. One of the two new continuums is destined to evolve on, while the other becomes discarded or disregarded. " - Source, Abarim Publications

There is your stumblingstone, if this be true.

Now, isn’t the same conundrum written about the coming of the son of man which Jesus himself spoke of?

And he saith unto him, verily, verily, I say unto you, hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of man.”

And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man, which is in heaven.   And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up.”

Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

The “Son of man” and the “man child” are the same.  Is he a “stumblingstone” to you, or the “chief corner stone”? 

Through the eyes of a child, what is he to you? 

Who does the dragon seek to devour?  What will be made desolate if you let him succeed?

You.  Your house.  The sanctuary within you.  THIS is what she who labors to bring forth travails in pain to deliver.

The “beast that was, is not yet is” – what?  The stumblingstone or the chief corner stone?  Why does “the beast” in Revelation 13 follow after the man child who is “caught up to God and to his throne”?  Then follows the “war in heaven” and the “dragon and his angels” are cast out of heaven and “into the earth” in Revelation 12.

The “vessel” of “the man child” after he that “withholdeth” is “taken out of the way” so that “evil is revealed” is the “beast” who “was, is not, yet is”.  What’s in your heart?

This brings to mind the lyrics “I’m gonna be exactly what you’re gonna see” from “Is it Scary”. 

Am I the beast you visualized”,
. . . If you came to see, the truth the purity,
It’s here inside a lonely heart,
So let the performance start”.

We learned that “Bethuel”, a name of a city and also of the father of Rebecca and Laban, and nephew of Abraham, Lot and Haran, has a name meaning “daughter with” or “virgin of” God, and also “safebox”, “protective outer attire”, or “outer casing of the tabernacle” (the walls).

now that your gifts are out of the box, take the chains off them so I can put them to work” – “That Night In August”, Posted January 24, 2010.

The stumbling block of the Jews of Judah, the remnant of Israel is works of the law instead of faith:

Keep your faith and keep your eyes on me”, said the Lord Christ Jesus in my dream.  “Tell him with Faith”, he said to me in another dream.

The promise was not to Abraham or his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faithRomans 4:13

Faith was reckoned to Abraham for Righteousness.” – Romans 4:9-11

Jesus said in Luke 13:19, “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove, an nothing shall be impossible unto you”.

Grain/seed =Word of God - Luke 8:11.

Faith comes by hearing and hearing by The Word of God” – Romans 10:17

The Word is Christ, the son who was made flesh and the Word was in the beginning with God – John 1:1-4, 14.

Is not “the Lord in Zion” and “her king in her?” – Jeremiah 8:19.

Scripture does reveal the meaning of Zion/Sion/Hermon; and that as Jesus was born of a woman, under the law as the “Word made flesh”, so also because of him “there’s now a door we all walk through; that is, the vail:  So the “seed of the woman” is that of faith, in Zion.



Hephzibah and Beulah



From the previous entry on “Bethuel” came the only verse that the word “Beulah” appears in the scriptures, along with the daughter of Zion’s new name:

"For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.   And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.

Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.   Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.

5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee."

The Lord delights in her, and her land shall be married.  The defining of the two names are right there.

"The extraordinarily beautiful name Hephzibah is assigned twice in the Bible:

The first Hephzibah we meet is the mother of king Manasseh of Judah (2 Kings 21:1).   The second Hephzibah occurs in the book of Isaiah, where the prophet lists a small group of nicknames for Zion and Jerusalem (Isaiah 62:4)." – Source, Abarim Publications

Manasseh, king of Judah is one of the sons of Joseph also in Genesis 41:51.  Abarim further explains the name “Hephzibah”.

"The name Hephzibah consists of two elements that are separated by a maqqep( a Hebrew hyphen):  The first part comes from the verb חפץ (hapes), meaning to take delight in:

"The central yod in the name Hephzibah denotes possession of what precedes: my delight.   The second part of the name is the very common and ubiquitous particle ב (be), meaning in at or by (it's the first letter of the Bible: in the beginning):

Isaiah renders Jerusalem this wonderful name, and explains it right away by saying:

בך - in you, יהוה – YHWH, חפץ – delights, בי – for - Isaiah 62:4 ...which means: Because YHWH delights in you.

Hephzibah meaning
For a meaning of the name Hephzibah, BDB Theological Dictionary, NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names agree: My Delight Is In Her." - Source, Abarim Publications

The name “Beulah” pertains to “ba’al” meaning “to own, rule” or “exercise dominion over”, to “be lord over”, but they explain it as meaning “married”.

Beulah -
"The name Beulah is a passive participle of the verb ba'al and means Married.

Isaiah explains this name by stating that Jerusalem will no longer be called Azubah (Forsaken) and her land Shemamah (Desolate), but Jerusalem will be called Hephzibah (My Delight Is In Her) and her land Beulah (Married), "because YHWH delights in you, and your land will be married (62:4)"." -

Beulah is the married land; and Hephzibah means “For God Delights in You”.

Isaiah preaches a promise given him by the Lord, that the corn, grain of His people will no longer be meat for our enemies.  You know the walls:

"I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,   And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

The Lord hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:   But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness."

And the Word of the Lord by Isaiah had also predicted and identified Zion:

Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.   Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken."

In her travail, Zion brings forth her children; and her king is in her.



The Stone



Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:   The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him.  

But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:).

The name Ben only appears in the Bible once by itself, but is part of compound names in various other scriptures.  The only Biblical Ben is an obscure second degree Levite who is a gatekeeper but who is drafted to make music during the transportation of the Ark (1 Chronicles 15:18) – MUSIC during the transportation of the Ark.

Etymology of the name Ben -
Ben is surely also the shortest name in the Bible (together with Dan and Ner), and although a fine name in its own right, the word ben appears as part of about a dozen compound names (see below).   The name Ben is identical to the common Hebrew noun בן (ben), meaning son:

The name Ben means Son. But it also means Building Block." – Source, Abarim Publications

“Ben” means “son”, but also means “building block”.

Building block: chief corner stone.

This song is a message.   It is one of the reasons they were after him and why he was persecuted.  He knew:

Ben with Lyrics


Now You Know what he knew of the marriage of the Bridgegroom and the bride, the Lord and the land: 

She bears her child the moment she makes the offering, because the Word is brought forth in her.  It is at that moment the man child is born that her travail begins and she is pained to be delivered.

In her travail to bring forth what was already given her, she brings forth her children.  They are the remnant of her seed.

But it is not of herself that these are born, but given the daughter of Zion by the Lord; for the stone of offence, the stumblingstone in her is the very same chief cornerstone for those that believe on him.

But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.   Wherefore?  Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law.  For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offense: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

"As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:   If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.   To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.   Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded."

In Zion is a stone which can be either your stumblingstone or the chief corner stone.  Remember from earlier in this entry?

It is hard to determine with these if Zion is a stumbling block or a blessing.  Isaiah 29:8 tells us that those who fight against mount Zion will be left empty, and in Lamentations 5:18 the “mountain of Zion” is desolate, because none look to the Lord.  In Joel 2:32, those who “call upon the name of the Lord” shall be delivered, out of Zion and Jerusalem, and “in the remnant whom the Lord shall call”.

The “Son of man” and the “man child” are the same.  Is he a “stumblingstone” to you, or the “chief corner stone”? 

Through the eyes of a child, what is he to you? 

Who does the dragon seek to devour?  What will be made desolate if you let him succeed?

You know what the rock of offense and the chief cornerstone is, don’t you?  Do you understand where it is in the temple?  You should . . . because the stone has a name . . .

  1. 2 Corinthians 4:1-10
    "Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

    4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

    7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body."
