Church built on the rock who is Jesus / Is Peter the head of the Church? / What are the Gates of Hell?

[Mat 16:18 KJV] 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.


Peter = a small rock

“Rock” = a big boulder see: Isaiah 28.16

Gates of Hell = Death  see: Psalm 9.13


Read it again: “That thou art a small rock, but upon this boulder [Jesus] I will build my #church ; and death shall not prevail against it.

In our opinion, Jesus is saying:

1. The Church will be built upon him, the boulder, not the small rock. In prophecy Jesus is referred to a cornerstone, and a rock in at least 2 places.

2. Usually death ends a movement because the movement is dependent on the people promoting it. But #Jesus didn’t die. Death did not prevail against him. And for those who keep the commandments and do good works and have forgiven others, death won’t prevail against us either.
