(Lyrics) The Cornerstone Of Jesus Christ Spoken
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Expanded Lyrics Version)

No one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid
Which is Jesus Christ
So Saul do not boast about work already done in another man’s territory
Speaking not as the Lord Jesus would but as a fool
Who is out of his mind and not a servant of Christ
Therefore, we will not put up with a little of your foolishness
Or allow you to enslave, exploit, and take advantage of us
Slap us in the face, or be a crafty fellow trying to catch us by trickery
And if you have concern for all the churches don’t rob Macedonia
Masquerading as an angel of light, and servant of righteousness
When you have a thorn in your flesh that makes you a messenger of Satan
And you are really a prisoner of the palace guard of Herod
We don’t need foreign gods sacrificing detestable idols to demons
Which are not God Almighty
Foreign gods that oppose and exalt themselves over everything
That is called God or is worshipped
So that they set themselves up in God’s temple and proclaim themselves to be God
For the Lord Jesus will overthrow you with the breath and rod of his mouth
And punish you with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword
And it is with justice he judges and makes war
And the Holy Spirit is his King
And devils lie to the Holy Spirit
For you are Leviathan gliding serpents
Leviathan coiling snakes, and monsters of the sea
Renegade Levites and treacherous witches
Jacob said Simeon and Levi’s swords are weapons of violence
That he will not enter into your council or join in your assembly
For you have killed men in your anger, and hamstrung oxen as you pleased
And Jacob cursed you anger, so fierce and your fury, so cruel
Therefore Jacob said he would disperse you in Israel
And the Sovereign Lord in Ezekiel said
Those Levites who went far away from me
Who led Israel astray with their detestable idols
Shall not come near the Sovereign Lord’s Most Holy Place
For they lied to the Holy Spirit, God and men
And with their heart filled with Satan they sold Joseph’s land
Keeping the money for their dishonest gain
They agreed to test the Spirit of the Lord
And in honor of James and Joseph, both brothers of the Lord Jesus Christ
The God Almighty’s armies of Salvation, Grace, Truth and Faith
Riding on White Horses and dressed in fine linen
Along with the Holy Spirit of Truth’s sword and iron rod
Will combine their faith with a deed
And that deed will be the wrath and great supper of God
On the Great Day when Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan are judged
When we gather together and call fire down from heaven and devour
All the worshipers of Lucifer, the devil and his angels, Satan, beasts, false prophets, and dragon evil spirit demonic frogs
And we will attack, shoot, remain and stay
Until wild donkey accusers, who robbed Joseph, the bother of Jesus
Who lied to the Holy Spirit with their hearts filled with Satan
Who agreed to test the Spirit of the Lord
Who use grace as a license for immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Who are Ishmaelite sons of Hagar who will never share in our inheritance
Who persecute the Lamb that is the Son and Word of God
And that therefore Scripture says we should get rid of
Who say they are Jews, though are not, but are liars from the synagogue of Satan
Will no longer be called noble and respected
But be exposed as liars, fools and scoundrels
And their folly will be clear to everyone that they are devils and demons
And their foundations of deception will be laid bare
For it will be revealed they were never angels of the Lord
For the Holy Spirit is the Lord
And by the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is both the Lord and Christ
And devils lie to the Holy Spirit
And devils deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Therefore the devil’s detestable idols they sacrifice to demons
Will be broken into pieces by creating a burning heap of rubble
From their foreign gog images which are not God Almighty
And they will be first be given to
The Holy Spirit who is the Lord of Lords, King of kings and God of Gods
Then to Jesus who is the Lord and the Christ
And the Lord Jesus will overthrow the devil with the breath and rod of his mouth
And slay the wicked men who suppress the Truth
With the Holy Spirit’s mighty sword and iron rod
And the Lord will come with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones
To judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts
They have done in the ungodly way
And of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him
On the Great Day Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan are judged

For Jesus Christ will make it clear to Peter
When Jesus says to Peter in Matthew 16:23:
“Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me
You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men”
Do not violate the law by striking down Paul to make him Saul
And do not spread your tent under a scorching sun that ransoms Lambs
Our people do not need man-made manna in a desert
Or water from the rock of a son of man
The Word of God is the bread of eternal life from Heaven Above
And the water of life is given for free
For God Almighty was not pleased with these sons of man
These desert wandering Canaan cloud worshipers
And their bodies were scattered throughout the desert
For they are disobedient men who lack faith and do not believe
That the Word of God is the Lamb of God
They are the men whose condemnation was written about long ago
The godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality
Who are sinners and liars and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign Lord
Who worship ceremonial washings and external regulations
Who are Ishmaelites bowing down at incense altars with detestable offerings
Who speak abusively against whatever they do not understand
And what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals
These are the very things that destroy them
For Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites
These people they just honor me with their lips
But in their hearts they are far from me
And when they worship it’s in vain
For their teachings are but rules taught by men
They let go of the commands of God Almighty and hold on to traditions
That are merely man-made ceremonial washings and external regulations
Accusing those who are without sin
They dishonor their father and mother and say it’s corban
A gift devoted to God, when it’s really devoted to them
They are baptism drunkards and manna gluttons
They nullify the word of God for their traditions
For they are merchants of fake morals and man-made regulations
And for dishonest gain they unlawfully abuse the written code
To slander celestial beings with false accusations
And they are the scoffers, grumblers and faultfinders
Who follow their own evil desires and boast about themselves
Who flatter others for their own advantage
Who invent ways to do evil, and disobey their parents
Who are the witnesses of their robbery of Joseph’s land
And bear testimony to their lies to the Holy Spirit of Truth
When they tested the Spirit of the Lord
By using grace as a license for their immorality
When they know that God’s righteous decree
That those who do such things deserve death
They not only continue to do these very things
But also approve of those who practice them
For they are the wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame
Wandering stars, for whom the blackest darkness has been reserved forever
Who anger the Holy Spirit with lies, foreign gods and detestable idols
That they sacrifice to demons, which are not God

Scripture says Lucifer has no inheritance
For Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan
Lied to the Holy Spirit, God and men
And Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan
Agreed to test the Spirit of the Lord by selling Joseph’s land
Enslaving Joseph to serve Lucifer, the devil and Satan
Claiming to care for the poor, they keep the money for their dishonest gain
And since all these devil’s offspring are the wicked
They will never be mentioned again
So prepare a place to slaughter Lucifer’s sons
For the sins of their forefathers
They are not to rise to inherit the land
And cover the earth with their cities
For the Lord Almighty will rise against them
And cut off their names and survivors
And they will have no offspring or descendants
Declare the Holy Spirit who is the Lord
And Jesus who is the Lord and Christ

Scripture says Lucifer has no inheritance
For the devil accuser of our brothers
Who accuses them before our God both day and night
Will be hurled down to the earth, and Lucifer’s devil angels along with him
Those who once laid low the nations
Who would not let their captives go home
When the Lord delivered his people out of Egypt
Who did not believe, but continued to accuse
Mock and slander celestial beings
Will be kept in darkness, and bound with everlasting chains
For judgment on the Great Day
And they will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done
To the Lambs that are saved by grace and faith
For these whitewashed walls violate the law
By striking down, slaying and circumcising
The Lambs of John, James, Peter, Joseph and Paul
And God’s people will make captives of these captors
And rule over these oppressors
On the day the Lord gives us relief from the suffering
Turmoil and cruel bondage they have done to God’s people
And their oppression and fury will come to an end
On that day all the lands will be at rest and peace
And they will break into singing
How the oppressor has come to an end
How his fury has ended
For the Lord who is the Spirit has broken the rod of the wicked
And the scepter of these rulers
Which in anger struck down the peoples
With unceasing blows
And in fury subdued nations with relentless aggression
Even the pine trees and the cedars of Lebanon
Exult over you and say
Now that you have been laid low
No woodsman comes to cut us down

Scripture says Lucifer has no inheritance
For the grave below is all astir
To meet Lucifer, Satan and all devils at their coming
It rouses the spirits of the departed to greet you
All those who were leaders in the world
It makes them rise from their thrones
All those who were kings over the nations
They will all respond, they will say to you
"You also have become weak, as we are; you have become like us"
All your pomp has been brought down to the grave
Along with the noise of your harps
Maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you
How you have fallen from heaven
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth
You who once laid low the nations!
You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven
I will raise my throne above the stars of God
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly
On the utmost heights of the sacred mountain
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds
I will make myself like the Most High"
But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit
Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate
"Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble
The man who made the world a desert
Who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?"
All the kings of the nations lie in state, each in his own tomb
But you are cast out of your tomb like a rejected branch
You are covered with the slain, with those pierced by the sword
Those who descend to the stones of the pit
Like a corpse trampled underfoot
You will not join them in burial
For you have destroyed your land and killed your people
The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again
Prepare a place to slaughter his sons for the sins of their forefathers
They are not to rise to inherit the land and cover the earth with their cities
"I will rise up against them," declares the Lord Almighty"
I will cut off from Babylon her name and survivors
Her offspring and descendants," declares the Lord
"I will turn her into a place for owls and into swampland
I will sweep her with the broom of destruction"
Declares the Lord Almighty
The Lord Almighty has sworn
"Surely, as I have planned, so it will be
And as I have purposed, so it will stand
I will crush the Assyrian in my land, on my mountains
I will trample him down
His yoke will be taken from my people
And his burden removed from their shoulders"
This is the plan determined for the whole world
This is the hand stretched out over all nations
For the Lord Almighty has purposed
And who can thwart him?
His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?

Scripture says Lucifer has no inheritance
How you have fallen from heaven Lucifer
You who along with the devil and his angels and Satan
Worship Canaan dragon lords
Who are 8th kings that belong to the seven
Beasts and false prophets, evil spirits and demons
Who once was, not is not, and yet will come
Out of the Abyss and go to their destruction
For you devils are the men whose condemnation
Was written about long ago
You who stepped out in the morning and dawn of creation
With slanderous lies and accusations
Who use grace as a license for immorality
And deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord
Who lie to the Holy Spirit, God and men
Who agreed to test the Spirit of the Lord by selling Joseph’s land
Enslaving Joseph to serve Lucifer, the devil and Satan
Claiming to care for the poor, yet keeping the money for your dishonest gain
And since all these devil’s offspring are the wicked
They will never be mentioned again
So prepare a place to slaughter Lucifer’s sons
For the sins of their forefathers
They are not to rise to inherit the land
And cover the earth with their cities
For the Lord Almighty will rise against them
And cut off their names and survivors
And they will have no offspring or descendants
Declare the Holy Spirit who is the Lord
And Jesus who is the Lord and Christ
The entire law is summed up in a single command
To simply love your neighbor as yourself
And you scoffers, grumblers, faultfinders, and flatters of each other
Lucifer worshippers, devils and demonic angels that follow Satan
Are mockers of celestial beings for your dishonest gain
You have agreed to lie to the Holy Spirit and test the Spirit of the Lord
When you know God’s righteous decree to those who do such things deserve death
You not only continue to do these very things, but approve of those who practice them
Therefore, hear the word of the Lord you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem
You boast we have entered into a covenant with death
With the grave we have made an agreement
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by us, it cannot touch us
For we have made a lie our refuge, and falsehood our hiding place
So this is what the Sovereign Lord says
See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone
A precious cornerstone for a sure foundation
The one who trusts will never be dismayed
I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line
Hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie
And water will overflow your hiding place
Your covenant will death will be annulled
And your agreement with the grave will not stand
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it
As often as it comes it will carry you away
Morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through
The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror
The bed is too short for you to stretch out on
The blanket too narrow to wrap around you
The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim
He will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon
To do his work, his strange work
And perform his task, his alien task
Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier
The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me
Of the destruction decreed against the whole land
For Jesus Christ will make it clear to Peter
When Jesus says to Peter in Matthew 16:23:
“Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me
You do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men”
Do not violate the law by striking down Paul to make him Saul
And do not spread your tent under a scorching sun that ransoms Lambs
Our people do not need man-made manna in a desert
Or water from the rock of a son of man
The Word of God is the bread of eternal life from Heaven Above
And the water of life is given for free
For God Almighty was not pleased with these sons of man
These desert wandering Canaan cloud worshipers
And their bodies were scattered throughout the desert
For they are disobedient men who lack faith and do not believe
That the Word of God is the Lamb of God
They are the men whose condemnation was written about long ago
The godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality
Who are sinners and liars and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign Lord
Who worship ceremonial washings and external regulations
Who are Ishmaelites bowing down at incense altars with detestable offerings
Who speak abusively against whatever they do not understand
And what things they do understand by instinct, like unreasoning animals
These are the very things that destroy them
For Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites
These people they just honor me with their lips
But in their hearts they are far from me
And when they worship it’s in vain
For their teachings are but rules taught by men
They let go of the commands of God Almighty and hold on to traditions
That are merely man-made ceremonial washings and external regulations
Accusing those who are without sin
They dishonor their father and mother and say it’s corban
A gift devoted to God, when it’s really devoted to them
They are baptism drunkards and manna gluttons
They nullify the word of God for their traditions
For they are merchants of fake morals and man-made regulations
And for dishonest gain they unlawfully abuse the written code
To slander celestial beings with false accusations
And they are the scoffers, grumblers and faultfinders
Who follow their own evil desires and boast about themselves
Who flatter others for their own advantage
Who invent ways to do evil, and disobey their parents
Who are the witnesses of their robbery of Joseph’s land
And bear testimony to their lies to the Holy Spirit of Truth
When they tested the Spirit of the Lord

For they are the wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame
Wandering stars, for whom the blackest darkness has been reserved forever
Who anger the Holy Spirit with lies, foreign gods and detestable idols
That they sacrifice to demons, which are not God
Therefore hear the word of the Spirit of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom
Listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
"The multitude of your sacrifices--what are they to me?" says the Lord
"I have more than enough of burnt offerings
Of rams and the fat of fattened animals
I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats
When you come to appear before me
Who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?
Stop bringing meaningless offerings!
Your incense is detestable to me
New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations—
I cannot bear your evil assemblies
Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates
They have become a burden to me, I am weary of bearing them
When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you
Even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen
Your hands are full of blood, wash and make yourselves clean
Take your evil deeds out of my sight!
Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed
Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow
"Come now, let us reason together," says the Lord
"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow
Though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land
But if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword"
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken
So do not crucify the Lord of Glory to demons, which are not God Almighty
For it is God Almighty who is the Alpha and Omega
The First and the Last, the Beginning and the End
In Revelation stated as you who are and who were, the Holy One
And the Holy Spirit who is the Lord is going to reject the tents of Joseph
And not choose the tribe of Ephraim, but choose the tribe of Judah
And the Holy Spirit will remove Saul and make David their king
For he testifies I have found David, son of Jesse
A man after my own heart, who will do everything I want him to do
And David will shepherd the people with integrity of heart
And with skillful hands he will lead them
And the Holy Spirit will choose Jeshurun
The God who rides on the heavens to help you
And on the clouds in his majesty
The eternal Holy Spirit of Truth is his refuge
And underneath are the everlasting arms
He will drive out your enemy before you, saying destroy him
Because he does not worship foreign gogs and detestable idols
That are sacrificed to demons, which are not God
Because he knows the Holy Spirit is the Truth
And Lucifer, the devil and his angels, and Satan are liars
For although they claim to be Jews, they are not
But are from the synagogue of Satan and lie to the Holy Spirit
Therefore, the Holy Spirit who is the Lord is going to reject the tents of Joseph
And not choose the tribe of Ephraim, but choose the tribe of Judah
And the Holy Spirit will remove Saul and make David their king
And from this man’s descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus
As he has promised, and the Holy Spirit who is the Lord also says
“I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants
Therefore scripture says Jesse, David and Jesus have an inheritance
Scripture, however clearly states that Lucifer has no inheritance
And scripture clearly states the devil and his angels and Satan have no inheritance

Many of the Gospel References for “The Cornerstone Of Jesus Christ” are the same as my songs “Observers and Obeying the Law”, “Lord Jesus Overthrows the Devil”, “Jesus Christ Clear To Peter” “Lucifer Has No Inheritance” and “Dan Guards Naphtali” –see also my notes and sketches on the metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel and the lyrics and references that are included in all my song posts.
(Please note also that a Jew and Israelite in a metaphoric interpretation of the Gospel is not a person of Jewish heritage, it is a metaphor for a part of all of us that is a Jew within and another part of us that is a Gentile within -see Romans 2:28-29- and how these two parts become one in Ephesians 2:14-22, Ezekiel 37:15-17 and Romans 3:27-31, also how there are those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars- see Revelations 3:9.
