Gates of hell shall not prevail!!

Matthew 16:18

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
 
I heard this verse yesterday at a church service I attended and the power of it resonated in my soul. Even in places that outsiders are banned from – the Holy Spirit of God is there working behind the scenes. The Lord was speaking to Peter and Peter was the name the Lord gave him which was otherwise known as Cephas which means a rock or a stone. Upon Peter’s faith would be built the church of Christ being that Christ was the cornerstone. It is not a church built of wood and steel but a spiritual church built of souls of believers in Christ as Lord and Savior. The Lord told Peter what his role was to be and that the church would be built on Peter’s faith. No power of hell and no schemes of man would stop this church from being built upon and built upon.  Jesus knew He would rise again and would defeat the grave and death!!! And He sits at the right hand of God interceding for us and He is coming again!!! Soon!! Don’t delay making Him your Lord and Savior we do not know what tomorrow will bring as tomorrow is promised to no one!
