|Yesod (Jesus or yēšūaʿ): the foundation stone|
Yesod is a term portraying Jesus as the foundation of the house of the LORD. Here, God is a Mason (a house builder), and humans are the bricks (the stones) used for building up the house.
The house of God is the holy city (the cosmos) which all God's people hoped for. The cosmos was the city Abraham looked for,
For he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. (Hebrews 11:10) "NKJV"
Builder and maker: the Bricklayer (the Mason)
The city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God: the cosmos is a house and God is the Mason (the Bricklayer) of the house.
The stones used for building the house of God are not ordinary stones; they are precious stones. The first set of precious stones used for building the house are called the foundation stones.
City: the cosmos
A city which has foundations: the cosmos (the house of the LORD) is built on foundations.
The stones on the foundation of the holy city (the cosmos) are the precious stones described as follows:
The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones (Revelation 21:19) "NKJV"The precious stones are as follows:
Since every stone in the house of God is a human being, the twelve precious stones in the foundation of the city (the cosmos) are the twelve apostles of Jesus,
The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. (Revelation 21:14) "NKJV"
The Lamb: Jesus
Twelve foundation stones: twelve precious stones (the twelve apostles of the Lamb)
The twelve apostles of the Lamb are called the twelve foundation stones because they were the first set of people, after Jesus, to be transformed into the Axis Mundi.
The Axis Mundi is the Holy of Holies, and Jesus was the first man to enter into the Holy of Holies. Small wonder he was worshiped as God while he was alone in the Holy of Holies. But when other people came to join him, he became the first among equals. Every human being who has attained the state of the Axis Mundi is like Jesus (the heavenly man).
As we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly
The image of the man of dust: the earthly man (stone)
The image of the heavenly: Jesus (precious stone)
We know that the man of dust is Adam. This means that we are changed from Adam to Jesus when the stone is transformed from an ordinary stone to a precious stone.
Jesus (the heavenly man) is the Axis Mundi, and the transition from Adam (the man of dust) to Jesus (the heavenly man) is the change described as follows;
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:52) "NKJV"
The change is the resurrection. The resurrection is a sudden transformation of the human body from Adam (chaos) to Jesus (harmony). Chaos is the ordinary stone and harmony is the precious stone.
The dead: man (the chaos)
Incorruptible: Jesus (the cosmos)
Every man that is resurrected is a building block in the house of God. And Jesus, the first man to be resurrected, is the cornerstone (the jasper stone) and the foundation of the house.
Yesod is Yesu (Jesus or yēšūaʿ), and Jesus is the foundation of the new Jerusalem.
Precious stone: Yesod
Her light was like a most precious stone: Yesod (the precious stone) is the light revealing the new Jerusalem.
