Who We Are

Daniel 2:34-35 (KJV)
The Stone symbolized in this vision gives a revelation of the kingdom of the Great King Jesus which outlasts every other kingdom.

Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

  • He is the Stone that was rejected but has become the head of the corner. Psalm 118:22
  • He is the stone of Israel. Genesis 49:24
  • He is the stone that falls on you such that it will crush you to powder and that when you fall on it will break you into pieces. Matthew 21:44
  • He is the first and the last, alpha and omega that fills all things with Himself. Revelation 22:13
