UPON THIS ROCK!
And I say 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.” Mathew 16:15-18
AS MEN OF HONOR:
So what kind of men? Rocks! Sons of the chief cornerstone, even Jesus whom we shall call, “My Rock and my Fortress” As we read,
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2
And as rocks we shall be in a league with the rocks or stones of the field, at peace with them, and they shall not injure even our feet if we were to fall upon them, as we read,
“For thou shalt be in a league with the stones of the field.” Job 5:23
“They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” Psalm 91:12
AND NOT ONLY THE ROCKS, BUT ALSO…
When we are at peace with God we are at peace with all of God’s creation, we are protected, and we shall not suffer any harm! We shall be a league united for his purpose. Even the beast of the field shall be at peace with us,
“And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee.” Job 5:23
They will understand that we are under God’s protection, and that he always cause all to work to our good! This is God’s favor upon his own! He works it out,
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
This is God’s covenant with us! We are His rocks! Upon this ROCK we stand!
“And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creepy things of the ground: and I will break the bow, and the sword, and the battle out of the earth, and make them to lie down in safety.” Hosea 2:18
