The rock is an ancient Scriptural symbol of God, Truth. One knowing the turbulent history of the Hebrews can understand why the rock came to signify stability in their annals. To a people wandering in the wilderness or beset by enemies, the rock meant shade in the midst of scorching sunlight, a place of defense from a high elevation, a cleft in which to hide.
Moses sang of God (Deut. 32: 4), "He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." Patriarchs, prophets, and authors of psalms extolled God as a rock. This symbol teaches the great lesson in every age that God is changeless in a changing world, that what He is and makes endures.
Great changes are taking place in the world today, and these changes presage greater ones tomorrow. Matter is not the solid stuff it was once believed to be, and mankind are gaining control of its so-called laws. The forces which constitute matter are being comprehended and are being subjugated as God's mandate for freedom from limitation gains ascendancy in human thought.
