Building your life and ministry on the rock of eternal revelation – Part 1
Verses For Meditation:
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father, which is in heaven. 18And 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. 19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. (Matthew 16vs.15-20)
According to the grace of God, which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. (1Corinthians 3vs.10-13)
Building Your Life And Ministry On The Rock Of Eternal Revelation
The New Testament Church has not only survived the onslaught of darkness, but has also thrived amazingly because of the Rock of revelation upon which it was built. Because every man’s work shall be tried by fire, we must be careful about what we build our life and ministry on. Jesus Christ knew that the government of hell would come after Him and His Church, which was why He laid the foundation of His life and ministry solidly on revelation. The foundation of every building determines how long the building will last. It also determines the kind of loads the building can carry.
Revelation is an eternal rock upon which the Church was built. It is also a key that has the life of the kingdom of heaven. That Jesus Christ is the Son of God is an eternal truth, which bears the life of the Church . The mystery that declares the hiding place of the Church is an eternal rock upon which the Church is hidden. Satan knows the power of unveiling eternal truths, which is why he discourages believers from seeking them. It was the rock of revelation that Lucifer accessed that helped him swindle one-third of the stars of heaven.
There are lots of casualties in life and ministry today because people are building on foundations that can’t protect what they are building. The reason we must be conscious of the foundation we are building upon is because every man’s work will be tried by fire. Aside being careful about the way we build our ministries, we also need to be careful about how we build our lives. If Satan checked the stuff the life of Jesus was made of, I don’t think he will be afraid of you.
Revelation Belongs To God
It is God that determines what He reveals to men. God’s relationship with men is determined by revelation. It is what God reveals to a man that separates him from other men. Although Peter is not the rock upon which the Church was built, he can’t be separated from what God revealed to him. Having access to the revelation that has the life of the New Testament Church was one of the reasons Jesus committed the leadership of the Church into Peter’s hands. The Church had prevailed on earth because she is supported and protected from the right hand of the Majesty on High. Although the act of deliberate seeking gives men access to the living truths of God, it is God that determines who has access to what.
Abiding in the grace of the rock of eternal revelation, Shalom!
