The gates of hell SHALL NOT PREVAIL against the church. 

We’re on the winning side because the gates of hell SHALL NOT prevail against the church of the Living GOD. 

Matthew 16:13-18   When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.  


Colossians 1:16 NLT   For through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth.  He made the things we can see and the things we can’t see—such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.  Everything was created through him and for him. 

We can be completely confident that nothing God created will ever be equal to or greater than the Creator. 

Isaiah 46:9  NLT   Remember the things I have done in the past.  For I alone am God! I am God, and there is none like me. 

Lucifer thought he could be greater than his Creator. 

Isaiah14:12-15   How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning!  You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world. For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north.  I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’  Instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths.  

Lucifer desired to occupy the highest heavens: to probe and to penetrate the kingdom of the infinite God. He wanted a throne from which he could exercise final authority.  He coveted God’s glory for his own. He failed to acknowledge that his glory and beauty all came from and was dependent upon God.  He wanted to be equal with God and take God’s place as ruler of all. 

Luke 10:18  And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven

Once again – nothing God created will ever be equal to or greater than He. 

We need never to get into fear regardless of what the enemy tries to do.  The gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.   

The devil can continue to make ever attempt to destroy the church, but it will not happen.  God in Heaven just laughs at the devil and all his wicked plots. 

Psalm 37:12-13 The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them;
but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.

Proverbs 12:7  The wicked are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous will stand. 

Psalm 37:39  But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; He is their strength in the time of trouble.

Proverbs 18:10  The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

 However we do have some responsibility:  Our FIRST assignment is to continually pray for our leaders in America.   

I Timothy 2:1-2  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 

Confess life over the church andAmerica, not doom and gloom.  

Isaiah 54:17   No weapon formed against the church or America shall prosper. 

Here is one of the confessions for Americafrom my book: My Daily Delight in the Lord

 America hungers and thirst after righteousness and follows the voice of the Lord.      (Matthew5:6)

America is free from the land of the enemy and comes back to her own borders.      (Jeremiah 31:16 & 17)

    Thanks for your blog. It fit right in to my curcumstances. We will be in Long Beach August 22 – 24. Like to buy you lunch on Thursdaythe 22nd. Let me know.

    You know the Sevil tries to destroy the church, by picking us off, one by one. I’ve been there and done that.

    An interesting thing happening. I’m still in touch with many that worked with Benny Hinn. Lord woke me up one morning at 3AM. “Benny Hinn’s ministry will grow beyond what one has never seen. Be prepared to go back” One of the clearest words I’ve ever heard. Hard to think about that. Came into the living room and Joanne is playin the music that Don Mohen produced at the Cleveland crusade in 1998. The first crusade I put together.

    Then another person, texted, saying he got the same message from the Holy Spirit. Understand, we never wanted to go back , so thi is and unusual experience. We will wait upon the Lord. He is doing this, not a man. No man should even begin to organize it. The Lord knows who belongs on that team and he knows who does not.
