What is the “rock with 7 eyes” in Zechariah Chapter 3?
Zechariah 3:9 See, the stone I have set in front of you Yahusha! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,' says Yahuah Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day.'
What is Yahuah talking about? What “rock”? We see that in the book of Joshua (son of Nun and successor to Moses) that a rock was set before Israel as a witness to the covenant with Yahuah, to re-affirm the Covenant Law:
Joshua 23 25 On that day Joshua made a covenant for the people, and there at Shechem he reaffirmed for them decrees and laws. 26 And Joshua recorded these things in the Book of the Law of Yahuah. Then he took a large stone and set it up there under the oak near the holy place of Yahuah. 27 “See!” he said to all the people. “This stone will be a witness against us. It has heard all the words Yahuah has said to us. It will be a witness against you if you are untrue to your Elohim.” 28 Then Joshua dismissed the people, each to their own inheritance.
These rocks are metaphorically speaking of “a solid foundation, a rock solid witness”.
Before we can begin to interpret properly what the rock with 7 eyes is speaking of, we must first firmly establish that Zechariah Chapter 3 is speaking of The Messiah. The Branch! Most “teachers” will not touch this prophecy because it clearly says “see High Priest Yahusha, I have forgiven your sin!” They cannot reconcile that one statement with the clear evidence that this prophecy is speaking of the coming Messiah being consecrated Eternal High Priest of the House of Zadok by Yahuah personally!
So let us first establish a foundation from which to approach this most important of all Prophecies. Where our Messiah is consecrated High Priest directly by the Father and enters into The Yahushaic Covenant on our behalf!
For more on this prophecy and proof it is speaking of the Messiah… click here.
In Zachariah Chapter 3, the end result of this covenant that Yahuah and Yahusha enter into is that Yahusha makes the final sacrifice “for his brothers (John 15:13)” as required in The Heavenly Scroll and further elaborated in The Spring Feasts. He must die and pay the dowry for his Bride. Yahuah then makes a promise to Yahusha… He speaks in the Mystery Language of “7 eyes on one stone” that is “put before him” or rather “what lies ahead of him” … being his destiny. It is in fact, a “stone of destiny” so to speak and where the idea of such a stone to coronate Kings originated. Yahuah then declares He will remove the sin of the land in one day.
This was laid out in the stars on Day 4 of Creation Week:
CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he’s the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life. AQUARIUS: He pours out “living water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river and the faithful live again, he is the deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying the wood of the sacrifice over the earth. PISCES: The Redeemer’s people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted.
What is all this about?
How can we piece together this puzzle so that it can be understood?
In context, Yahuah is directly referencing the “effects” of Yahusha’s sacrifice by tying it to removing sin; which defeats death leading to resurrection as laid out in the pictogram of Capricorn. Yahusha, then, is laid as “The Chief Cornerstone” of the final Temple after fulfilling The Heavenly Scroll.
Ephesians 2:20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Yahusha the Messiah himself as the chief cornerstone.
That “stone” embodies perfection (number 7) of the 7 Spirits of Yahuah (perfect word or revelation).
Isaiah 11:2-3 The Spirit of Yahuah will rest on Him (he is NOT Yahuah, he was an anointed teacher), including the Spirit of Yahuah (that Yahusha came in the flesh as a human being not a demi-god click here), and the Spirits of wisdom, of understanding, of counsel, of might, of knowledge and of fear of Yahuah, here are represented the seven Spirits, which are before the throne of Yahuah (he was filled with The Ruach and the 7 Spirits of perfection upon Mikveh Colossians 2:9).
Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of Yahuah is upon me (after he was Mikveh'd Matthew 3:16), Because Yahuah has anointed me (as High Priest in the desert just after his Mikveh click here) To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners; (Luke 4:18)
Luke 4:18 “The Spirit of Yahauh is on me (he was anointed by Yahuah, he was not Yahuah), because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor (Isaiah 61:1). He has sent me to proclaim freedom (from the Law of Sin and Death) for the prisoners (held captive by fear of death Hebrews 2:14-15) and recovery of sight for the (Spiritually) blind, to set the oppressed (by human rules and traditions) free!
The Living Water is a metaphor of The Spirit of Yahuah…
Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants.
Yahusha is the fulfillment of Aquarius in The Heavenly Scroll, he is the one who Mikveh’s the Earth with Living Water Click here.
Isaiah 44 …2 Thus says Yahuah who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, 'Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen. 3 For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants; 4 And they will spring up (into Eternal Life CAPRICORNUS) among the grass Like poplars by streams of water.'…

These 7 Spirits are “seen in The Heavenly Scroll” as The Heavenly Menorah before the Throne. “Fire” is a metaphor of the Word of Yahuah (Jeremiah 23:29), and 7 flames burning (a Menorah) is a metaphor of the PERFECT Word of Yahuah burning eternally in… The Heavenly Scroll!
Psalm 119 …88 Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, So that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth (written in The Heavenly Scroll). Lamedh. 89 Forever, O Yahuah, Your word is written in (the) heaven(ly Scroll). Psalm 89:2 For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heaven(ly Scroll) You will establish Your faithfulness."

What are the ‘Eyes’ referring to?
“Eyes” is a miss translation, in this case, that word could also be translated “fountains” or “springs” of living water, which is more appropriate in the context of Yahusha, who is the Living Water and whoever drinks of his cup, STREAMS of Living Water flow.
John 4:14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of living water welling up to eternal life."
The word translated as “eyes” in this case is h5869 ‘ayin’ below. Notice another usage of this word is “streams/fountains/springs” of living water!
So Yahusha is…
“the perfect rock which serves as the Chief Cornerstone of the final Spiritual Temple; from which 7 streams (perfect expression of Yahuah’s Spirits) of living water flow”
This is in fulfillment of the physical shadow of Moses striking the rock and living water came gushing out to satisfy the thirst in the land.
Numbers 20:11 Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank. John 7 37 On the last and greatest day of the feast of Sukkot, Yahusha stood up and called out in a loud voice (to all of Israel, that he is the fulfillment of Aquarius the Water Bearer), “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38 To the one who believes in Me (that I am the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll), it is just as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.’”…
So, the proper translation of Zachariah’s prophecy, IN CONTEXT, with the Mystery Language interpreted is:
Zechariah 3:9 See, the stone I have set in front of (a witness to your destiny) Yahusha! There are seven fountains of Living Water on that one (Chief Corner) stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it (I will personally witness)', says Yahuah Almighty, 'and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day’ (the day Yahusha fulfills his end of the agreement and gives his life and is set as the Chief Cornerstone of the 3rd Temple in fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll).
Yahusha had to walk the path of The Branch laid out in The Heavenly Scroll where the Groom pays the dowry for his Bride with his life to redeem her from death. This Plan of Salvation laid out in The Heavenly Scroll was then later revealed and rehearsed in the Feast Cycle as Passover!
So after Yahusha gave his life to fulfill his role as The Branch on Passover at the end of the Age of Aries (the Lamb) as a “lamb that was slaughtered” foretold in the stars on Day 4 of Creation Week…
Yahusha became The Chief Cornerstone of the Final Spiritual Temple, by which all the sons of Yahuah inherit eternal life as they drink from the fountains of living water that flow forth from that rock.
