PSALM 62:2 “He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
The Scene: Three views of the same rock, viewing right to left: A rock was thrown. The first rock represents Jesus Christ as the Rock of Salvation who goes out to everyone willing to receive Him. Some accept His Word and His perfect offer of forgiveness of sin following repentance. They fear, obey the Lord and His (God’s) Word. The second view (middle) symbolizes a hot burning coal/rock. Some people do not accept God’s Word nor His offer of salvation. The Word burns their ears. They feel condemned by the Word of God, yet they do not believe.
Hebrew 3:18-19 “And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.”
The Third View: The rock falls to the ground and explodes–representing those who reject God’s offer of salvation, who are rebellious and explode in anger because of their unbelief.
Psalm 14:1-2 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.”
1 Peter 2:7-10 “Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,’ and, ‘A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.’ They stumble because they disobey the message–which is also what they were destined for. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
