CRYSTALS, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/17/21 From Ken Smith<><
My fist use of a crystal was with my crystal radio, no battery or energy but a pare of ear phones and touch the crystal in different areas and get different radio stations. Now we use crystals for collection sun energy and converting it to stored electricity in batteries and much more.
But there is another side of crystals that I have never explored noted in Ezekiel 28:12-19, “12 Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, Thus says the Lord God: You are the full measure and pattern of exactness [giving the finishing touch to all that constitutes completeness], full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in [a] Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and your settings and your sockets and engravings were wrought in gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared. 14 You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing [wings], and I set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire [like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stone upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai]. 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until iniquity and guilt were found in you. 16 Through the abundance of your commerce you were filled with lawlessness and violence, and you sinned; therefore I cast you out as a profane thing from the mountain of God and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Your heart was proud and lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I lay you before kings, that they might gaze at you. 18 You have profaned your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities and the enormity of your guilt, by the unrighteousness of your trade. Therefore I have brought forth a fire from your midst; it has consumed you, and I have reduced you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who looked at you. 19 All who know you among the people are astonished and appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and shall never return to being.
So here we catch a glimpse of the Archangel lucifer’s fall from obedience into pride and rebellion. And we know by scripture that the Gifts and Callings of the Lord are without repentance or change. So until Rev.12:11 and Rev.19 lucifer is still that angel of the crystals. It would appear that crystals are important in the Kingdom of God but for now they may be temporarily corrupted. We see clairvoyants mostly with a crystal ball and such. So as Christians where do we go with crystals? Personally, I think that they are beautiful and have many in my collection as God created. But as to the power for healing and deliverance I am told to look to Jesus and HIM alone and when folks receive healing to give the glory to God and not a bunch of stones.
Not really much on Precious Stones in the Bible, in 1 Cor.3:12 they are listed as works that we do because we love Jesus. But in Rev 17:4 they also are of note in the false religious system as also in Rev.17:4 and Rev. 18:12. 18:16. But then the God City sets upon Jasper, Sapphire, Chalcedony and Emerald foundations as Ornamentation’s with pearl gates.
So it would seems that Precious Stones or Crystals can be used for good or evil and the way to know the difference is if the stone is said to be the power source or that Jesus is the Power Source. If a person is selling crystals as having power in themselves for healing this is probably from lucifer. If a man buys a beautiful stone to honor his wife, that could be from God.
I once had a vision of a Gold Crown, with the gold so pure that it was soft. In the Crown were places for cut stones. Next to the crown was a case for the cut stones to fit each in their own special spot. Some of the stones were already in the case but many of the places were empty. And next to the case was a pile of cut stones that were scratch and very dirty. I was impressed that each precious stone was being professionally cleaned and polished and placed in the case to be later set in the crown for the Glory of Christ Jesus. And that is was up to us as to being willing to be cleaned and polished and to be made ready as one of the stones to be made ready to go into the crown.
In the Old Testament there are 21 scriptures concerning Precious Stones and most of them went into the 1st Temple to honor GOD…. I would suspect today that Precious Stones should Honor God in Christ Jesus in the same way. Precious Stones are similar to stars in many ways. Paul shares this in Phil. 2:15, “That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, un-rebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world,” Or in Jude 1:13, “…wandering stars, for whom the gloom of eternal darkness has been reserved forever. And again in Psalm 147:4, “He determines and counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by their names.” So we are not an unknown to God, we are known by name and we have the potential of serving HIM or not and to get cleaned up and reflect HIS light or not. In 1 Pet.2:5, “Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men [a] tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight. 5 [Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For thus it stands in Scripture: Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen ([b] honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him [who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] shall never be [c] disappointed or put to shame.” (Isaiah 28)
There is but ONE Church of Christ Jesus as LORD
all who Love, Honor & Obey HIM are eternal members.
