Title: Upon This Rock

Upon This Rock
  • Matthew 1618

  • Jesus asked a key question (v. 13)
  • Jesus distinguished between the answers (vv.
  • Jesus made an important declaration of the New
    Testament Church (v. 18)

Upon This Rock
  • The Foundation
  • Was Peter the rock, the foundation of the
    church? The Catholic Church says, Yes
  • Peter means rock (Gr. petros, masculine, a
    pebble a detached stone boulder piece of rock)
  • Jesus used a different word (Gr. petra, feminine,
    a rock ledge or cliff see Mt. 724)

Upon This Rock
  • The Foundation
  • Peters revelation, Thou are the Christ is the
    rock, the foundation (note v. 20 Rom.
    933 1 Pet. 28)
  • Note the words My Father And I
  • Churches of men are build upon a mans
    confession, the church of Christ is built upon a
    Divine revelation

Upon This Rock
  • The Foundation
  • Jesus, not Peter, is the foundation of the
  • Affirmed by Paul (1 Cor. 311 Eph. 220)
  • Affirmed by Peter (1 Pet. 26-8)

I Will Build
  • The Architect
  • Jesus is the builder (Zech. 612-13
    Acts 1516) not designed by men, but by Jesus
  • The blueprint is the NT (2 Tim. 113)
  • Only the Lords house will stand (Psa. 1271)

I Will Build
  • The Architect
  • Note the words I will
  • The Lords church was not present at this time,
    but would be in the future (Acts 247)

My Church
  • The Building
  • The church is not a physical building, but a
    called out assembly of people (Gr. ekklesia 1
    Cor. 39 Eph. 221)
  • A separated people (2 Cor. 614 71)

My Church
  • The Owner, the Name, the Number
  • Note the words My church
  • Christians, the church, belong to Jesus Christ
    (Ac. 2028 Eph. 114 525-27 1 Pet. 118-19
  • Local churches belong to Christ, thus Churches
    of Christ (Rom. 1616) they glorify his name (1
    Pet. 416)

My Church
  • The Owner, the Name, the Number
  • Note the words My church
  • Jesus built one church not many churches (1
    Cor. 1213ff Eph. 122-23 44)

The Gates of Hades
  • The Strength, the Duration
  • The descent of Jesus into Hades (Hell, KJV) would
    not keep Jesus from building his church (Acts
    222-36 v. 24 v. 31 Rev. 113ff)
  • Jesus church / kingdom will last forever (Dan.
    244 Heb. 1228)

The Keys of the Kingdom
  • The Authority
  • A key is an instrument of authority (Lk. 1152
    Rev. 118 37 Isa. 2222)
  • The inspired words of all the Apostles, not just
    Peter, is the binding and loosing authority in
    the church (note Mt. 1818)

The Keys of the Kingdom
  • The Authority
  • The authority of the Apostles was already given
    to them from heaven (note the future perfect
    indicative, shall have already been bound,
    shall have already been loosed)
  • The Apostles words were Jesus words (Jn.
    1613-15 1 Cor. 213 Gal. 111-12)

The Church of Christ
  • Will you gladly receive the word of God and be
    added to the Lords church (Acts 241,47)?
  • Or, will you be joined to a man-made church that
    will be rooted up (Mt. 1513)?
