Week Five – God’s Authority Through His Church

Scriptures

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. - Matthew 16:18,19

Quote

Jesus founded his ekklesia, his body, with legislative power and authority to rule in the spiritual realm and dictate its law to the visible nation. The “law,” once drafted, is sent to the executive branch of God’s Kingdom—God the Father—who executes it through his powerful agents, the angels.

Questions to discuss

According to Matthew 16:19, is the ekklesia in Haiti exercising its authority? Why or why not?

What issues should the ekklesia avoid because of their nature? Is your answer consistent with the Master’s declaration in Matthew 16:19?

Prayer Request

Pray for the ekklesia of Jesus Christ in Haiti to understand the depth of the authority it has been given by Jesus. Pray his followers will reclaim that authority and use it for the glory of God and the good of our nation.
