The agate stone was often used to make precious seals
that engraves a King's signature and claim on things that
belong to Him. There are many colors of agate. I believe that
the agate on the foundation at the New Jerusalem is a yellow color.
Jesus is referred to as the "LIGHT" of the world, and
yellow is a great color to remind us of light.
In the bible verse Ephesians 6:17
Paul writes "Take the Helmet of Salvation"
When we accept Jesus as our Savior we receive
Salvation and receive God's Seal of Protection
from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet.
In the first chapter of Ephesians Paul explains God's
Salvation plan through Jesus Christ to adopt us as His
"God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to Himself through Jesus Christ. This is what He wanted to do, and it gave Him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace He has poured out on us who belong to His dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son and forgave our sins. He has showered His kindness on us, along with
all wisdom and understanding." Ephesians 1:5-8 (NLT)
Paul again calls us adopted children of God in Romans 8:23
"And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies He has promised us."
As children of God we receive the SEAL of salvation forever.
Ephesians 1:13-14 says:
13 "In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory."(NKJV)
and Paul adds in Ephesians 4:30
"And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption."
2 Timothy 2:19 says:
"Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity."
Jesus did so much for us.
His blood on the cross made us justified
to enter the throne room of God.
Then Jesus clothed us with His
robe of Righteousness so that
we are blameless before God.
And finally He gave us His seal of Salvation
and adopted us as children of God.
That makes us Princesses and Princes
of the Heavenly King, Our Father God.
Remember the Agate represents the Seal of Salvation from God.
