THE BISHOP'S MESSAGE
FEBRUARY 18, 2024
The students were asked by their Master, “who do men say that I am?” What a question! As it is, many persons do not have a clue who they are, and they certainly cannot tell, the worth, substance, capacity or the identity of others. But it was necessary for Jesus to draw this truth out of those who walked closely with Him. They started out missing the mark, “Some say you are John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” Matt. 16:14. We would have made the same mistake!
Thank you Father, for bringing us out of darkness and placing us in the Kingdom of your dear Son! Peter stood up among them and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God!” Matt. 16:16 This was revelatory! This came directly from God. Now the Master Teacher could make another statement that would shake every other kingdom.
“You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of heaven; that whatever you bind on earth, will be bound in heaven, and whatever you lose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matt. 16:18-19
The Chief Architect, Builder, the One who owns all things, in establishing His Kingdom on earth, using the vehicle of the Church, He tells us, the keys to this kingdom, the authority, the power to function in two realms, on earth and in heaven were placed in the apostolic leadership of His Church. What is this saying? If you are a believer, one whose mind has been transformed by the Holy Spirit, one who clings to God, who obeys Him, who comes under His lordship, that you are no longer an ordinary person!
The keys of the kingdom, in you hand is to open up the realm of the miraculous. We have the keys to the supernatural realm. We must open doors, gates, padlocks, and chains that have sought to hinder the growth and expansion of the Church. Then we must prevent, hinder, bind, destroy, and limit the work of iniquity and lawlessness in our domain. Oh for a people to use adequately the keys of the kingdom! Lord grant us eyes to see and ears to hear, what The Spirit is saying to us, today. Thank you Father, for answering our prayers, Amen!
