What meaneth these Stones?
By Gordon Richardson
The phrase “What meaneth these stones?” is taken from the book of Joshua, when the Children of Israel were clean passed over Jordan, and
the Lord spoke to Joshua and told him to take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man. And he commanded them saying; “Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests feet stood firm, twelve stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the lodging place where ye shall lodge this night,” (Josh 4:1-3).
The reason that God wanted them to make a memorial was for the next generations to come. The future generations need to be taught, to understand and to love the ways of holiness and separation from this world as much as we do. It is our responsibility to leave behind an example and written Bible lessons that explain the reason why we live a life pleasing unto God; why we dress the way that we do.
This book is designed to do just that, as a result of our love and devotion unto the God that we serve.
