“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken. I will test you with the measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness. Since your refuge is made of lies, a hailstorm will knock it down. Since it is made of deception, a flood will sweep it away.”

Isaiah 28:16-17

A plumb line, is a cord with a non-magnetic weight attached to one end. When the cord is held in such a way that the weight can dangle freely, an exact vertical can be determined. Painters and carpenters use plumb lines to keep their work straight. It is difficult, while in the middle of a project, to determine a true horizontal or vertical line without an objective measuring tool, so a plumb line is employed. A plumb line applies the law of gravity to find right angles, to indicate the most direct route from top to bottom, and to keep things plumb. A plumb line doesn’t change or move with the whims of the carpenter. It remains true, and all work must line up with it or risk being crooked.

God tells us in this scripture that He is placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem and this will be the only foundation that will stand the test of time. This stone is Jesus Christ. If we don’t line up with the plumb line of righteousness we will be knocked down because all the other foundations are nothing but lies. The flood of sin is washing away the foundation of our country. We must wake up to what is happening. We need a plumb line so that we will not move from our foundation which is the righteousness of God. This newsletter will be about what is happening in our country and what we can do about the sin that is weakening our foundation. Satan is raging because he knows that Jesus is coming back soon. Satan wants to take as many with him as he can. We must wake up and pray that God will change our country.
