After doing a study on foreheads I came up with a list of symbols. I always find it interesting how God uses a symbol and Satan has a counterfeit symbol. At the same time God uses the hard forehead to describe prophets and sinners. The message I’m learning is that we need to make our hearts (in this case foreheads) hard against evil and soft toward God’s messages.

  • Obstinate: the house of Israel are “stout of forehead” (Ezekiel 3:8)
  • Without God: thy brow is brass (Isaiah 48:4)
  • Separation from God: Amlicites marked themselves (Alma 3:13)
  • Not looking to God: Israel are of a hard forehead and of a stiff heart (Jeremiah 3:7)
  • Beliefs: David’s stone struck Goliath’s forehead (1 Samuel 17:49)
  • Loyal to God/ need not fear your enemies: God makes his prophet’s “forehead hard …. as an adamant harder than flint,” (Jeremiah 3:8, 9)
  • Hard work: Adam worked “by the sweat of [his] brow”
  • Bold and Firm Message from the prophet (Isaiah 48:8; Isaiah 48:9)
  • Saving Mark: a distinguishing mark made on the men that turned to  God, it set them apart and they were spared (not killed)(Ezekiel 9:4)
  • Present to God: “Holiness To The Lord” written on the mitre (hat) of the High Priest (Exodus 28:36)
