Bible Rock

God is a place of safety and protection, like a rock, to those who believe in him.

5. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion, in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me upon a rock (Psalm 27:5, HBFV)

1. I waited patiently for the LORD, and He inclined unto me and heard my cry. 2. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps (40:1 - 2)

As a rock, God is our refuge, salvation and strength.

But the LORD is my refuge; my God is the rock of my protection. (Psalm 94:22, see also 18:2 and 95:1)

Christ became a stumbling stone or 'rock of offense' to those who refuse to obey God (Romans 9:33, 1Peter 2:8). Jesus was the ROCK in the Old Testament that led the children of Israel out of Egyptian slavery (1Corinthians 10:2 - 4). Jesus also promised to build the New Testament church not upon any man (e.g. Peter) but upon himself, the true Rock.

18 And I also say to you that you are Peter (when means a small pebble), and on this rock (a giant formation) I will build My church . . . (Matthew 16:18)

In the Bible, the breaking of rocks can be symbolic of the power and might of God (Jeremiah 23:29).
