Building on the Rock of Revelation
by Mike Keating on Friday, 20th of February 2015


Mat. 16:18 paraphrase


“Who do you say that I am? You are the Christ, the son of the living God. Blessed, happy, spiritually enlightened, prosperous, to be envied are you Simon son of John, for frail and weak humans did not reveal this revelation to you but my Father is heaven. And I say that you are Rock (a detached but large rock) and upon this massive bedrock (huge attached rocky peak) of confession, I will build my church.”


Upon the rock of confession of revelation, Jesus will always build.


God bless you Simon, son of Jonah. You didn’t get this answer from books or from teachers. My Father in heaven, God himself gave you this secret of who I really am. And now I’m going to tell you a secret, you are Peter, a rock. This rock is the rock on which I will pt together my church, a church so expansive in with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out. And that’s not all. You will have complete and free access to God’s kingdom, keys to open any and every door: no more barriers between heaven and earth. A yes on earth is a yes in heaven. A no on earth is a no in heaven.


Upon the rock of confession of revelation, Jesus will always build.

And the Gates of Hell will not prevail


The counsels of the enemy will not win! Eph. 6:11 ‘stand against the wiles’ or methodia method, procedure, strategy, cunning attacks, tricks. Eph. 4:14 ‘by the craftiness of their deceitful methodia”. 2 Cor. 10:4 “strongholds - a strong system of lies, false philosophy, reasoned arguments” …..We demolish “thoughts, calculations, reflections, strategies, misleading thinking” Paul said that he was not ignorant of the devil’s schemes.


Every demon comes as a thought injected into your mind to get you to change the rock of revelation to the sand of uncertainty. Every demon is comes to a plan to get you to stand of sand. Man, don’t stand on the sand. Lock onto the Rock! (Mat. 7:24-26)


Let’s move from the sand to rock - look to the foundations of your life!


- Ps Mike
