The Buildings of the Builders

Wednesday, March 3, 2021

Much of the modern world was built by the Jewish people. Modern capitalism had its roots in the Middle Ages among Jewish merchants and moneylenders. Also modern communism was built by a Jewish man, Karl Marx. Why is that? The answer is found in Psalm 118; the Jewish people are called, "the builders." They were called by God to be His builders, to build His kingdom on earth. It also says, 'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.' In other words, though the Jewish people are God's builders, they would reject the cornerstone of their Temple. The Cornerstone is Messiah. Without that cornerstone, whatever house is built, will be empty. That's why communism had to fail, and capitalism without God, is empty. It's not just true for the Jewish people but for you too - for you are called to be a builder. You're building your life. What are you building right now - your looks, reputation, abilities or comfort? If you build your life on these things other than Messiah, then your life will be empty. Come back to the foundation and ground everything you do upon the rock that the builders rejected: Messiah, the Cornerstone.

From Message #175 - The Cornerstone
