The Churches are not “The Church”.”The Church” is the true Church of Jesus, consistent of those faithful, repented and baptised = Saint. The Churches are just ‘Church Organisations’.
From the very beginning, corrupted people saw the potentials of ‘The Church Organisations’. Many tried to fool ‘The Church’ that they were Apostles (see the book of acts). But the good churches tried them and exposed many as false man from Satan. But the Church Organisation which today is the largest of its kind (Roman Catholic) did not do this and they attracted the most appalling figures.
Criminals maneuvered their way into the churches and took the Christians at their own game.
The church already established a hierarchy of uppers en lower, which, indeed, was very convenient for them: Christ taught humbleness, so the Christians should just follow, should they not? And was it not most convenient that the translation of the paragraph which concludes with the line “upon this rock I shall build my church” after its translation, could easily be contrived to mislead believers that it was ‘Peter’ Christ referred to and not him, Christ, as ‘This Rock’?
These same offenders against God, also created a so-called Holy office and a whole theatre of clergy and ceremonies, designed to enchant the week and so draw the fools nigh them. They managed to coerce the monarchs of the earth to follow them and even led them to commit murder on their behalf, fooling the earth to follow them as, seemingly, they were from God. It is amazing how they managed to fool the earth so badly. They were the law, not the courts.
Considering all this, can you imagine how stupid people are, yes ‘Are’ as today they are still fooled: and in many more ways.
But Christ warns us:
a) you shall know them by their fruit: did Christ taught us to murder people or to worship Mary?
b) the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first.
c) many are called but few are chosen.
d) aware that we’re gnashing our teeth: I shall repay, says the Lord!
e) the predictions on this church in revelations 17.
Based on this paragraph out of the Gospel of Matthew, the Catholic church deceived many. Those days many people could not read and had to listen to the preachers. The Catholic church preached a false Gospel and moved nations and kingdoms to fornicate against God and commit gruesome murders on their behalf.
Imagine, that God regards one church the original, and the churches from the other Apostles invalid! This defies logic; as does the fact that Christ would build his Church on a man to then, in the revelations, proclaim how he hates that church, call them a whore and tell us how he will destroy them – see Revelation 17:4
When something defies logic, and there also exist firm support for this, such as we find in the revelations, even those of lesser intelligence can understand that we have to go along with logic.
And if there are fools who can still not understand, consider this: Jesus has told us that the greatest amongst us must be the servant, like he was. Yet the Catholic church is portraying first, their pope as Master, then their clergy. And these masters together murdered millions throughout the world. Read history.
This is a good example of how interpretation can be used to fool millions.
MAT 16: 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
MAT 16: 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
MAT 16: 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 16: 18 And I say also 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. ( this rock, him Jesus; The Christ ).
MAT 16: 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
MAT 16: 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.
Later, speaking to all the Apostles, repeating some of these lines to all of them:
MAT 18: 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
MAT 18: 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
What Jesus is telling Peter is that he also is a rock; this because of his faith (that Jesus is ‘Christ’, ‘The Rock’).
And that upon this rock (Christ) he shall build his church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And I shall give you (thee, ‘you guys’) the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you (thou ‘you guys’) shall bind or loosen on earth so it shall be in heaven.
Thee and Thou, in old English, both refer to individuals and groups.
Understand it like:
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
And Jesus answered: And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter (small stone or rock in Greek), and upon this rock (I, Jesus) I will build my church…
The verse below gives an example of what is to be understood in the verse above.
PE1 2: 9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;
PE1 2: 10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God:
which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
God is repeatedly referred to as a Rock in the Bible:
PSA 22: 2 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
PSA 18: 31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God?
CO1 10: 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
Some believe that Peter was the leader of the early church, but this was not so, nor was he ever Bishop of Rome or first pope
and neither is there a biblical reference of him being in Rome. He also was a married man.
Read the New Testament. Perhaps first search for: Matthew 23:8-12, Acts 10:25-26, I Timothy 3:1-7, I Timothy 4:1-3
All I here prove to be the proof is confirmed in this quotation of Christ, where he for the 2nd time quotes these words, but now to all others listening, so no doubt that this power is given to all repented and baptised believers: – Christians:
MAT 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
This ‘conquering trend’ continues today and is evident in all churches of men: the false Protestant churches are as abominable as the Catholics. And who says that they would have behaved differently through the ages, had they inherited the same power the Catholics have through the Roman Empire?
Remember this when you read the book: It is not how you like to see it; it is the way it is.
A blind man can not lead a blind man, for both fall into a ditch.
Him that has eyes, let him see; him that has ears, let him hear.
