And just because we have not plumbed the true depth of the acted parable of David and Goliath, we want to mark another point in this most wonderful story. That stone keeps coming back into focus! Wonderful are God’s words! Created for our learning upon whom the ends of the world are come!

That stone represents a smooth Jacob, and a message, as given by people doing the particular work illustrated by the angels of Revelation 14. Those people are the 144,000 and they cause the spiritual death of Satan’s agents, for his agents have only lies.

Now the truth of the message “sunk into his forehead,” we are told, in the KJV. Time to check up on what a “forehead” is in God’s dictionary.

 

Behold, I have made
thy    face      strong against their faces, and
thy forehead strong against their foreheads. Ezekiel 3:8

a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, Ecclesiastes 8:1

As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man. Proverbs 27:19

but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:  Deuteronomy 28:65

And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: 1 Samuel 2:35

 and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: 1 Chronicles 28:9

they have made their faces harder than a rock;

they have refused to return. Jeremiah 5:3

 

This one is a bit more complex. First we discover that face is the same thing as forehead. Then we discover that it is tied in to man’s heart. And heart leads us to mind.

Now we can go back to the bad guy, Goliath, and we discover through the hidden treasure that it is the people delivering the loud cry, whose words are God’s words, that “sunk” into the minds of Satan’s agents, paralyzing them from taking any action.

Hummm….. I am being reminded of something….
This is very interesting….. Hummmm…..
Let’s see here…..

    The light that was shed upon the waiting ones penetrated everywhere, and those who had any light in the churches, who had not heard and rejected the three messages, answered to the call, and left the fallen churches. Many had come to years of accountability since these messages had been given, and the light shone upon them, and they were privileged to choose life or death. Some chose life, and took their stand with those looking for their Lord, and keeping all his commandments. The third message was to do its work; all were to be tested upon it, and the precious ones were to be called out from the religious bodies. A compelling power moves the honest, while the manifestation of the power of God holds in fear and restraint relatives and friends, and they dare not, neither have they power to, hinder those who feel the work of the Spirit of God upon them. The last call is carried even to the poor slaves, and the pious among them, with humble expressions, pour forth their songs of extravagant joy at the prospect of their happy deliverance, and their masters cannot check them; for a fear and astonishment keep them silent. Mighty miracles are wrought, the sick are healed, and signs and wonders follow the believers. God is in the work, and every saint, fearless of consequences, follows the convictions of his own conscience, and unites with those who are keeping all the commandments of God; and they sound abroad the third message with power. I saw that the third message would close with power and strength far exceeding the midnight cry. p. 195, Para. 1, [1SG].

God Bless your study
