Updates on happenings with Covenant Advent Church
Published on Monday, June 10, 2019
The success of the Christian church is encapsulated in the statement of Christ to His disciple Peter, that the “gate of hell shall not prevail against it”. The positive actions of the government cannot give success to the church of God. The negative actions of the government cannot stop the work of the church. It is for these reasons why we believe that Jesus did not depend upon the government or the rebellious church leaders for the success of His ministry and taught His disciples to depend upon the blessings of the Father for success. It is the Rock Christ Jesus that lived and died for His Church and upon this reality we press forward without the aid of any great empire.
Matthew16:18 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.
How has the gate of hell try to destroy the church of God? Additional text: Hebrews 11:32-38
