Matthew 7:24–27

Build Your House on The Rock

[24] “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. [26] And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. [27] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” 


Psalm 127:1–2

A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon.

[1] Unless The LORD builds the house,
those who build it labor in vain.
Unless The LORD watches over the city,
the watchman stays awake in vain.
[2] It is in vain that you rise up early
and go late to rest,
eating the bread of anxious toil;
for He gives to His Beloved sleep. 


Ephesians 2:8–10

[8] For by Grace you have been Saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is The Gift of God, [9] not a result of works, so that no one may boast. [10] For we are His Workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. 


Isaiah 28:16 (Prophecy 1)

[16] therefore thus says The Lord GOD,
“Behold, I AM The One who has laid as a Foundation in Zion,
a Stone, a Tested Stone,
a Precious Cornerstone, of a Sure Foundation:
‘Whoever believes will not be in haste.’ 

Psalm 118:22–23 (Prophecy 2)

[22] The Stone that The Builders rejected
has become The Cornerstone.
[23] This is the LORD’s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.

Isaiah 8:12–18 (Prophecy 3)

[12] “Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. [13] But The LORD of Hosts, Him you shall honor as Holy. Let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread. [14] And He will become a Sanctuary and a Stone of Offense and a Rock of Stumbling to both Houses of Israel, a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. [15] And many shall stumble on It. They shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.”

[16] Bind up The Testimony; seal The Teaching among my Disciples. [17] I will wait for The LORD, who is hiding His Face from The House of Jacob, and I will hope in Him. [18] Behold, I and The Children whom the LORD has given me are Signs and Portents in Israel from The LORD of Hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion. 

1 Peter 2:4–10 (Fulfillment of all 3)

[4] As you come to Him, a Living Stone rejected by men but in The Sight of God Chosen and Precious, [5] you yourselves like Living Stones are being built up as a Spiritual House, to be a Holy Priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Yeshua the Messiah. [6] For it stands in Scripture:

“Behold, I am laying in Zion a Stone,
a Cornerstone Chosen and Precious,
and whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.”

[7] So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe,

“The Stone that The Builders rejected
has become The Cornerstone,”

[8] and

“A Stone of Stumbling,
and a Rock of Offense.”

They stumble because they disobey The Word, as they were destined to do.

[9] But you are a Chosen Race, a Royal Priesthood, a Holy Nation, a People for His Own Possession, that you may proclaim The Excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His Marvelous Light. [10] Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s People; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 


Zechariah 9:9 (Prophecy of His First Coming to Jerusalem)

The Coming King of Zion

[9] Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
Righteous and having Salvation is He,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Matthew 21:1–11 (Fulfillment of The Messiah's First Coming as The Suffering King)

The Triumphal Entry 

[1] Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus (Yeshua) sent two disciples, [2] saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. [3] If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” [4] This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

[5] “Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
humble, and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”

[6] The disciples went and did as Jesus (Yeshua) had directed them. [7] They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and He sat on them. [8] Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. [9] And the crowds that went before Him and that followed Him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” [10] And when He entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” [11] And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus (Yeshua), from Nazareth of Galilee.”

Zechariah 9:10–17 (Prophecy of His Second Coming to Jerusalem to Save His People)

[10] I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
and the war horse from Jerusalem;
and the battle bow shall be cut off,
and He shall speak Peace to The Nations;
His Rule shall be from sea to sea,
and from The River to the ends of the Earth.
[11] As for you also, because of The Blood of My Covenant with you, {see 1 John 1:7}
I will set your prisoners free from The Waterless Pit.
[12] Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope;
today I declare that I will restore to you double.
[13] For I have bent Judah as my bow;
I have made Ephraim its arrow.
I will stir up your sons, O Zion,
against your sons, O Greece,
and wield you like a warrior’s sword.

The LORD Will Save His People

[14] Then the LORD will appear over them,
and his arrow will go forth like lightning;
the Lord GOD will sound The Trumpet
and will march forth in the whirlwinds of the South.
[15] The LORD of Hosts will protect them,
and they shall devour, and tread down the sling stones,
and they shall drink and roar as if drunk with wine,
and be full like a bowl,
drenched like the corners of the Altar.

[16] On that day the LORD their God will save them,
as The Flock of His People;
for like the jewels of a crown
they shall shine on His Land.
[17] For how great is His Goodness, and how great His Beauty!
Grain shall make the young men flourish,
and new wine the young women.

Zechariah 12:10 (Fulfillment of His Second Coming to Jerusalem to Save His People)

Him Whom They Have Pierced

[10] “And I will pour out on The House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a Spirit of Grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on Him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over Him, as one weeps over a firstborn. 


Psalm 2 (Prophecy)

The Reign of the LORD’s Anointed

[1] Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
[2] The Kings of the Earth set themselves,
and the Rulers take counsel together,
against The LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
[3] “Let us burst Their bonds apart
and cast away Their cords from us.”

[4] He who sits in The Heavens laughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
[5] Then He will speak to them in His Wrath,
and terrify them in His Fury, saying,
[6] “As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my Holy Hill.”

[7] I will tell of the Decree:
The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
[8] Ask of me, and I will make The Nations your Heritage,
and The Ends of the Earth your Possession.
[9] You shall break them with a Rod of Iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

[10] Now therefore, O Kings, be wise;
be warned, O Rulers of The Earth.
[11] Serve The LORD with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
[12] Kiss The Son,
lest He be angry, and you perish in the way,
for His Wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in Him. 


Zechariah 14 (Fulfillment)

The Coming Day of The LORD

[1] Behold, a day is coming for The LORD, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. [2] For I will gather all The Nations against Jerusalem to battle, and The City shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of The City shall go out into exile, but the rest of The People shall not be cut off from The City. [3] Then The LORD will go out and fight against those Nations as when He fights on a day of battle. [4] On that Day His Feet shall stand on The Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and The Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of The Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward. [5] And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then The LORD my God will come, and all The Holy Ones with Him.

[6] On that Day there shall be no light, cold, or frost. [7] And there shall be a Unique Day, which is known to The LORD, neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light.

[8] On that Day Living Waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the Eastern Sea and half of them to the Western Sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter.

[9] And The LORD will be King over all The Earth. On that Day The LORD will be One and His Name One.

[10] The whole land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But Jerusalem shall remain aloft on its site from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the King’s Winepresses. [11] And it shall be inhabited, for there shall never again be a decree of utter destruction. Jerusalem shall dwell in security.

[12] And this shall be the plague with which The LORD will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

[13] And on that Day a great panic from The LORD shall fall on them, so that each will seize the hand of another, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other. [14] Even Judah will fight at Jerusalem. And the wealth of all the surrounding Nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. [15] And a plague like this plague shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever beasts may be in those camps.

[16] Then everyone who survives of all The Nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship The King, The LORD of Hosts, and to keep The Feast of Booths (Tabernacles). [17] And if any of the families of The Earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship The King, The LORD of Hosts, there will be no rain on them. [18] And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; there shall be the plague with which The LORD afflicts the Nations that do not go up to keep The Feast of Booths. [19] This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all The Nations that do not go up to keep The Feast of Booths.

[20] And on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, “Holy to The LORD.” And the pots in The House of The LORD shall be as the bowls before The Altar. [21] And every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy to The LORD of Hosts, so that all who sacrifice may come and take of them and boil the meat of the sacrifice in them. And there shall no longer be a trader in the house of The LORD of Hosts on that Day. 

Revelation 2:26–29 (Fulfillment)

[26] "The one who conquers and who keeps my works until The End, to him I will give authority over The Nations, [27] and he will rule them with a Rod of Iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. [28] And I will give him The Morning Star. [29] He who has an ear, let him hear what The Spirit says to The Churches."


2 Timothy 2:19–21

[19] But God’s Firm Foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names The Name of the Lord depart from iniquity.”

[20] Now in a Great House there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. [21] Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a Vessel for Honorable Use, set apart as Holy, useful to The Master of The House, ready for every good work.


1 John 1:5–10

Walking in the Light

[5] This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. [6] If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. [7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and The blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. [8] If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the Truth is not in us. [9] If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [10] If we say we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us. 

1 John 2:1–17

The Messiah (God the Son) is Our Advocate with The Father in Heaven

[1] My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with The Father, Yeshua The Messiah, The Righteous. [2] He is The Propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for The Sins of The Whole World. [3] And by this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His Commandments. [4] Whoever says “I know Him” but does not keep His Commandments is a liar, and The Truth is not in him, [5] but whoever keeps His Word, in him truly The Love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in Him: [6] whoever says he abides in Him ought to walk in the same way in which He walked.

The New Commandment

[7] Beloved, I am writing you no new commandment, but an old commandment that you had from the beginning. The Old Commandment is The Word that you have heard. [8] At the same time, it is a New Commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and The True Light is already shining. [9] Whoever says he is in The Light and hates his brother is still in darkness. [10] Whoever loves his brother abides in The Light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. [11] But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

[12] I am writing to you, little children,
because your sins are forgiven for His Name’s sake.
[13] I am writing to you, fathers,
because you know Him who is from The Beginning.
I am writing to you, young men,
because you have overcome The Evil One.
I write to you, children,
because you know The Father.
[14] I write to you, fathers,
because you know Him who is from The Beginning.
I write to you, young men,
because you are strong,
and The Word of God abides in you,
and you have overcome The Evil One.

Do Not Love the World

[15] Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. [16] For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. [17] And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does The Will of God abides forever.

Matthew 7:21–27

[21] “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. [22] On that Day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your Name, and cast out demons in your Name, and do many mighty works in your Name?’ [23] And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Build Your House on The Rock

[24] “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on The Rock. [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on The Rock. [26] And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. [27] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
