Amos 7:7-8  This is what the Lord showed me: The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in his hand. And the Lord asked me, ” What do you see, Amos?””A plumb line,” I replied.Then the Lord said, “I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.”

For the true Christian, finding the Cornerstone (Jesus) & laying a firm foundation, based on God’s Word (the Holy Bible) is essential. However, to reach maturity (in order to build a strong house/temple so that the Holy Spirit can dwell therein) one must have more than just the Cornerstone laid. Building tools, like the plumb bob and carpenter’s rule are required to build (complete and grow up spiritually) the structure.

Plumb Line: A cord  attached to the bob; being held by Father God’s hand.

Plumb-bob: A lead device that is attached to the plumb line, used for determining perpendicularity, representing  Jesus–the Head

Carpenter’s rule/square: Used to measure a distance on an object and has two straight edges attached at right angles;  representing God’s laws (the Ten Commandments) used to keep the structure in square.
