"God's Precious Gemstones of Truth and Wisdom Are Being Poured Out"
Darren Canning, Ontario, Canada
From the Desk of Steve Shultz:
I found this word by Darren Canning intriguing to say the least! I know people have reported gemstones from Heaven showing up to them...and you'll read about some of this below.
The subject of gemstones from Heaven manifesting will be a little controversial, as oftentimes manifestations of the supernatural are! We, here on earth, won't always get the full understanding of how Heaven pours itself out on the earth, but as we are open, God will make Himself known to us in new ways...
This is very much a "truth" nugget that Darren explains well in his article:
Throughout Scripture, many times "precious stones" are likened to the truth and wisdom of God. This is the case in Ezekiel 28:12-13, where the prophet declares that the King of Tyre was adorned with wisdom and his covering was precious stones...
To me, precious gemstones is a picture of the wisdom that comes upon the Believer's life in Christ to administrate their life more effectively. God wants to pour out His gemstones upon the earth in this hour and symbolically these stones are His precious truths.
We've heard that more and more people are hungry for the supernatural ways of God. As you read through this, let God's Truth and Wisdom be your guide. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"God's Precious Gemstones of Truth and Wisdom Are Being Poured Out"
Darren Canning, Ontario, Canada
Last summer, my friend Kathie Walters posted a picture on Facebook of two gemstones that appeared in her house. One appeared on her husband, David's, desk and an exact stone appeared near her grandson. These two stones were marvelous in beauty. There were two or three colors inside of each of them and they looked just alike. Well I felt this intense desire to see the same thing.
Another friend of mine, Jeff Jansen, tells a story of an angel handing him a red ruby. In fact, I heard that through the years Jeff received two rubies. This story also brought to me a deep desire and hunger for the supernatural. Many reading right now are probably trying to put a dollar value on these gem stones. The truth is sometimes the stones that are found from Heaven do have monetary value, but this has never been my motivation in wanting to find them.
Seeing God in His Glory
For me, if a spiritual experience is available, then I want it. Like Moses and Aaron who went up on the mountain top with the 70 elders, I want to see God in His glory with a pavement of gemstones beneath His feet (Exodus 24:9-10). When the presence of God comes, it brings with it the atmosphere of Heaven, and the atmosphere of Heaven is filled with riches. The foundation of the new Jerusalem has 12 layers and they are all fine stones. I can't wait to see it. It is lavish and filled with the glory of God.
I heard these two stories around the same time last summer. I said to the Lord, "I want two rubies of my own." I don't usually pray that way, but I did that day. Within a few days, I was contacted by a friend from Massachusetts. She wanted me to come minister there for a weekend at the end of September. She started telling me stories of how she had found a lot of gemstones throughout the years. She had pictures of many red rubies that she had found. Without me saying anything she said, "I want to send you a couple of the rubies."
Rubies of My Own
I received those rubies with joy and then a month passed. I went to California to visit another friend who also has had many gemstones appear. Many of them in her own house. Just before I got there, two stones appeared in the carpet in the downstairs family room. They were both rubies. She said because I was coming, she felt the Lord meant those stones were for me, so she gave them to me. Now I had two red stones from California and two from Massachusetts.
Over the last three months, I have had significant dreams about gemstones. In them I find myself crawling around on the floor gathering stones that have appeared in meetings or in houses. Others are also gathering them. There are all sorts of colors – much like a rainbow of color. I find myself putting them into bags as if they were treasures that I was gathering to keep. When I wake up, I usually start looking around my bed and then around my room to see if any managed to make it back from dreamland.
Just last weekend I was ministering in Ontario, Canada, when I began to think about the appearance of these precious stones. What I have gotten used to is how our God doesn't do anything without a reason. Gemstones, to me, are just another way that God speaks into the earth so I began to pray in my meeting, "Lord, what were You trying to say with these rubies?"
What Does the Bible Say About Rubies and Other Gemstones?
He answered quickly and pointed me to the Scriptures. He said, "What does the Bible say about rubies?" So I looked and I was very happy that I did. There are many Scriptures where rubies are mentioned and I share a couple.
Throughout Scripture, many times "precious stones" are likened to the truth and wisdom of God. This is the case in Ezekiel 28:12-13, where the prophet declares that the King of Tyre was adorned with wisdom and his covering was precious stones:
"You had the full measure of perfection and the finishing touch [of completeness],
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The ruby, the topaz, and the diamond;
The beryl, the onyx, and the jasper;
The lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald;
And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and your sockets was in you.
They were prepared on the day that you were created."
I heard one person write that the precious stones that were arrayed around his head represented the prisms of truth and glory that come from the throne and shined wisdom and knowledge on the minds of men through the light of God. Rubies also represent wisdom, truth and knowledge. There is really no other commodity from Heaven that is more valuable than wisdom.
All wisdom comes from God (Daniel 2:20). There is a treasury in Heaven of wisdom, knowledge and truth (Colossians 2:3). The wisdom of man is foolishness to God (1 Corinthians 3:19). And then there is this wonderful Scripture in James 3:17 that talks about the weight of God's heavenly treasure. It says, "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere." The wisdom of Heaven comes with His presence. And God gives that wisdom freely to anyone who seeks it. Proverbs 2:6, "For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."
God's Precious Truths
I love the story of Solomon's encounter with God. When the Lord appeared, He asked Solomon what He could do for him. Solomon answered and said that what he wanted was wisdom to administrate God's people. You know the story, and because Solomon asked wisely God granted him that wisdom and then gave him a greater kingdom in wealth and splendor than even his father had. Solomon even built the temple.
Isaiah 54:11-14 (read it in full) is a picture of what happens to one who encounters the treasury of Heaven:
"O you afflicted [city], storm-tossed, and not comforted,
Listen carefully, I will set your [precious] stones in mortar,
And lay your foundations with sapphires.
"And I will make your battlements of rubies,
And your gates of [shining] beryl stones,
And all your [barrier] walls of precious stones.
"And all your [spiritual] sons will be disciples [of the Lord],
And great will be the well-being of your sons.
"You will be firmly established in righteousness:
You will be far from [even the thought of] oppression, for you will not fear,
And from terror, for it will not come near you."
You can see in this Scripture that God restores His people, giving them rubies for their battlements and gates of sparking jewels and precious stones. To me, precious gemstones is a picture of the wisdom that comes upon the Believer's life in Christ to administrate their life more effectively. God wants to pour out His gemstones upon the earth in this hour and symbolically these stones are His precious truths.
Proverbs 31:10 speaks about the virtuous wife and how she is worth far more than rubies. When I looked up the definition of virtuous, I discovered it means to be a person who is good, moral, ethical, upright, honorable, excellent, pure, worthy, honest, righteous, exemplary, squeaky-clean, blameless, praiseworthy, incorruptible and high-principled.
The Bible says there is none good but God. Therefore, to be virtuous is something that comes from above and is from God. When Heaven begins to shine in your life, Heaven's character begins to manifest through it. These to me are the gemstones of Heaven. I believe this is what God was trying to say to me when these rubies were given to me this past summer.
If you have wisdom, truth and knowledge from Heaven, you will prosper in many ways. I declare that a double portion of this is coming upon your life and that God is opening up the jeweled gates so that you will walk the streets of gold. This is just a poetic way of saying, "Get ready for your great day of blessing." May it be so for you and for me. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
