Good morning, Family:
Let’s dive right into the scriptures this morning. Hold on tight to this nugget of truth. I need you to see that God was not only talking to Peter. God was talking to anyone who received the revelation from the Holy Spirit regarding the Truth of who Jesus is and was. Peter was A rock. Jesus is THE ROCK!
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Who Is Jesus?
13 When Jesus and his disciples were near the town of Caesarea Philippi, he asked them, “What do people say about the Son of Man?”
14 The disciples answered, “Some people say you are John the Baptist or maybe Elijah or Jeremiah or some other prophet.”
15 Then Jesus asked them, “But who do you say I am?”
16 Simon Peter spoke up, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus told him:
Simon, son of Jonah, you are blessed! You didn’t discover this on your own. It was shown to you by my Father in heaven.
18 So I will call you Peter, which means “a rock.” On this rock I will build my church, and death itself will not have any power over it.
19 I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and God in heaven will allow whatever you allow on earth. But he will not allow anything that you don’t allow.
20 Jesus told his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
Walk in peace and truth, knowing that the Spirit of the Living and Eternal God will lead and guide you in all things. Stay hungry and thirsty for the Lord. Feast on His Word. Ask for eyes to see and ears to hear the manifested and Living Word.
Go in peace,
Rev. Marcia Davis
