THE CHURCH’S DOMINION IS FOREVER And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will
build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it
Some today are stupefied that the Church of Jesus Christ is still waxing strong, greater and more effective than ever. I wonder what they thought! They had postulated and were so sure that the Church
of Jesus Christ would be consumed by their nefarious plans, but they were wrong.
Since the inception of the Church on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2, it has outlived its detractors, its persecutors, its haters, its adversaries and all its enemies. It’s impossible to destroy the Church. It’ll
never happen. Those who boast against the Church, apparently, have forgotten their history!
When the Church was still young, in the Book of Acts, there were those who tried everything they could to stifle the Church, but still, the Church outlived them. It’s therefore a vain imagination for anyone or group to consider that the Church will either go extinct or somehow fizzle out and become history. The dominion and dominance of the Church is an endless one.
It reminds of the interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar’s puzzling dream that no one could explain until God gave the interpretation to Daniel (Daniel 2). In Daniel’s interpretation, all human structures beginning with the king as the head of gold and all the silver, bronze, iron,
and all the iron mixed with clay, would be destroyed by a “stone cut without hands.”
Then Daniel 2:44 says, “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces
and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” The stone that was cut out without hand was from God, and that stone destroyed the whole human structure and set up a kingdom, which the Bible says
shall not be left to other people.
The Church will never fall to the dominion or domination of another; at the end, it’ll be standing strong, because the Church is forever. The Bible says about Jesus, the head of the Church, “And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, Who is made…after the power of an endless life” (Hebrews 7:15-16). Hallelujah!
Dear Father, I rejoice, knowing that the Church of Jesus Christ continues to wax stronger and stronger, marching on in glory. Thank you for the boldness of your children to preach your Word, and the revelation of your truth granted them to live triumphantly, always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
