THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND THE CHURCH



    
Matt 16:18
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.
KJV
The church is God’s weapon for advancing His kingdom here on earth.
The kingdom of darkness has set up defenses and hindrances against the church’s invasion such that they will still be able hold others captives within their gates, but Jesus has told us beforehand that these gates (the gates of hell) shall not prevail against the church.
This means that we are continuing in preaching the Gospel and baptizing in the name of the lord. We are to be light and salt in our generation. If God wants to change your country and deliver it from the gates of hell, He will do this through the church in your country.
The church of God is the agency through which God advances His kingdom and destroys the gates of Hell. These gates were put there because they (the kingdom of darkness) are afraid of the church not the other way round.
Wherever you go today, remember that you are an agent of God’s kingdom dispelling the oppression and operations of the kingdom of darkness.
Prayer: thank you dear God for making me a citizen of your Kingdom. I pray that my salt will retain its saltness and my light will shine to your glory in my generation. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
