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. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
In this passage of scriptures, Jesus tells Peter about his responsibilities, and the authority that he has been given. He tells him that the church is BUILT upon that ROCK which is Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:19-22) also confirms the authority of the apostles concerning the foundation of the CHURCH ).Notice that Jesus told Peter that He would give him the keys to the kingdom. During the ancient world, council meetings were held at the GATES of the city. There they would consult about taxes, civil matters,and other issues such as WAR.This was also a place where EVERYONE had to enter in if they desired to visit the Kingdom. When Jesus told him about the keys (which means authority), He was commanding him to watch the Kingdom and keep it from being infiltrated by FALSE teachers and doctrines of DEVILS..That is the gatekeeper's job.He also comforted Peter by ASSURING him that even though the Enemy (devil) consults, plots, and devise WAR schemes at their gates, they would not OVERCOME the Kingdom of Heaven. This is the sole purpose of this page, because there are so many false teachings that are trying to infiltrate the gatherings.With this page,we will allow God's Word to keep them outside of the GATES.We pray that you are enlightened and BLESSED as you read this page.
There are many doctrines/teachings circulating in the world today. Some have some truth while still being false, while others have none at all. To us who are deemed believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, there is only one TRUTH. Jesus said, He is the way, the TRUTH, and the life (John14:6). Those who abide in God, abide in His Word/doctrine, and shall know the TRUTH. He also said that the TRUTH shall make you free as spoken in (John 8:31-32). Christ knew that there were many who were bound not only by sin,but also by false doctrine/teachings and commandments of men. He addressed one of these issues when (Matthew15:1-9) the pharisees taught that the people had to wash their hands before eating. This was not scripture, but became a tradition and was deemed as a transgression if one did not do so. The Apostle Paul spoke (2nd Timothy 4:3-4), that a time will come when people will not endure SOUND DOCTRINE, but will after their own lust place over themselves teachers that will turn them from the TRUTH, unto fables (LIES). SOUND DOCTRINE is any teaching that is supported by the TRUTH of Gods word which have been rightly divided and undefiled by the commandments of men. It is the doctrine Christ received from heaven (John 7:16), and gave to his Apostles (John 17:14-17), to give to the world. This is why (Ephesians 2:20), says we are built upon the foundation of the apostles( meaning upon their doctrine/teachings which they received from Christ). Paul charged Timothy (1st Timothy 1:3) to charge others that they teach no other doctrine! Also warning him (1st Timothy 4:1) that in the latter times many will depart from the faith (TRUTH), giving heed to seducing spirits, and DOCTRINES OF DEVILS. A DOCTRINE/TEACHING OF DEVILS will always be contrary to Gods word. For example, God told Adam, "thou shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17), and Satan said, "ye shall not surely die" (Genesis 3:4) a total contradiction of Gods word! Now the purpose of these pages are to illuminate the many FALSE DOCTRINE/ CONTRADICTIONS that are now being passed off in many churches/denominations as SOUND DOCTRINE. We are commanded to reach that maturity in God's Word that we be no longer tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive (Ephesians 4:11-14). Now with that being said, lets put some of these lies up under the light (Gods Word) for inspection. May Christ bless us all with increase. See next page for videos. Please watch and enjoy!
