Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Then the angel who was speaking with me returned and roused me, as a man who is awakened from his sleep. Zechariah 4:2 He said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3 also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side.” 4 Then I said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, “What are these, my lord?” 5 So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.” 6 Then he [a]said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. 7 ‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”’”
The genius disguise of the Word of the Lord is simply this. Man looks at the outside, God looks on the heart. The Word of the Lord comes from within out, and man doesn't see it until it's fully arrived.
Man thought he had a fix on things when he saw a tabernacle or a Temple. He thought what God was doing was a religion. Jesus said to the woman at the well, "It is neither here on this mountain nor in Jerusalem that God seeks worship. But He seeks rather worshippers who will worship Him in Spirit and in truth." So all the while he has been building from the inside. "The King's daughter is glorious within, she is transformed from the inside out." Psalm 45.
For the Lord a thousand years is as a day and a day is as a thousand years. While secularism disguises the ages of man, in actual fact the 7 lamps of the Lord have been like 7 Lights throughout all history preparing a people worldwide for a flourishing finish. A people that will shout to the great mountain and say before Zerubbabel you will become a great plain.
In Daniel's vision he saw a rock hewn out from a mountain rolling down and crushing the toes of the last Empire of built of stealth symbolised of feet and toes of clay and iron.
So how does this all manifest? Not by power, nor by might but by My Spirit says the Lord.
Not by the might and power of pyramids. All the works, religious and secular of man are built in enormous pyramids. It's the only shape the devil understands, because the only way he can garner power and efficiency is through terror and power structured in the shape of a pyramid.
How is God's capstone , the finished work of Jesus Christ presented? With cries of Grace?
Well actually no.
With cries of Grace, grace to it.
These are the days of the two grace cries.
The one grace of salvation through the Blood of Christ was almost lost in the low point of the middle ages and picked up again by Luther. But only in these days is the second cry of grace gettting louder and louder.
The grace not only of forgiven sin, past present and future but the grace of a completing salvation by a Resident Saviour who cmpletes the job within us, again by grace.
Simply believing upon the Word of the Son of God, who gave Himself that He by the Spirit might enter and so fuse with our spirits, that we know not where His identity begins and ours ends.
This is the gospel of grace. Eating of His flesh and His Blood.
He, both  of the "animals" offered up, one on the brazen altar one sent into the wilderness forever as a scapegoat. We lose sin and the sinner in one Cross event. Mr Sin who was resident in our members causing it to be a body of death, has now been cast out and cut off from us in every bit of a real way as when the Israelites passed through the Red Sea, and all the Egyptians pursuing them died in the waves.

And He will bring forth the topstone with cries of grace grace to it. Amen
