“And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hades shall not prevail against it.” – Matthew 16:18
Jesus promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the Church. The interesing thing that we often overlook is that gates are stationary – they do not move. For years Christians have believed that we are to be on the defense, blocking the gates of Hell. As we do, we know they will not defeat us. We have been very wrong. Gates do not attack, they are stationary. The real truth is, the gates of Hell will not stand as the church advances and offensely goes after them. They will not prevail against our attacks!
