Sunday Bible Message- Peter's Declaration About Jesus

Matthew 16:13-20
Peter's Declaration About Jesus

Now when Jesus came into the district Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, 'Who do people say that the Son of Man is ?' And they said ' Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets'. He said to them 'But who do you say that I am?' Simon Peter answered 'You are the messiah, the Son of the living God'. And Jesus answered him 'Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hades wil not prevai against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth wil be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven'. Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that was the Messiah.

Yes, true knowlege and discernment of God is a grace from God. The disciples were enabled to see who really Jesus Christ was because they were enabled by the Father. Thanks for the inspired post. God bless you always my friend.
