The saints are collectively a living Temple cut out from the rock of the world by the Stonemason, Jesus Christ, and those called to act in His Name [Oppsal, Oslo, Norway].
1. The stone which the builders cast away have I set in the corner of the Temple, for it is an everlasting Temple, and shall not pass away.
The Saints are the Living Temple
2. Ye are a Temple, not built with hands, fitted together by a master architect into a perfect whole.
3. But first ye must be hewn from the rock of the world, perfectly shaped and polished, for no imperfection can be built into the House of the Firstborn.
4. When the stonemason cometh with ax and chizzel, ye should not cry out, for he cometh to create beauty out of ugliness, and perfection out of imperfection.
5. See then that ye are perfectly reconciled with one another, ye saints of the New Covenant, until ye are one.
All Called to Be Stonemasons
6. The art of the stonemason is fine and is not learned in day;
7. See, therefore, that ye learn the ways of the stonemason, that ye may shape one another, not dividing one another because of clumsiness or lack of skill.
8. Ye are My stonemasons, saith the Lord, but I am the power of the stonemason;
9. Therefore work ye no stones after your own power, for the work of man is imperfect, and he who shapeth after his own notions can cause much damage, wrecking the Temple, which must thereafter fall.
Christ, the Sacrificed Stone
10. I am the stone, sacrificed that the Temple might stand, saith the Lord.
11. And My Father hath begun His work, and I do His work, and am satisfied.
12. The Father is the capstone; and thus all is perfection. Amen.
