Matthew 16:18-19 the gates of hell shall not prevail against it
We are in a battle against the forces of confusion.
You need to stand firm in your convictions that the
Catholic Church is the TRUE CHURCH established
by Jesus on
Peter (THE ROCK) in
[Mt. 16:18] "And I say to thee, thou art Peter, and upon this rock will build
my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. Mat 16:19 I will give
you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
("Gates"
Genesis 22:18 fulfillment to Abraham)
The Catholic Church always has taught that the MAGISTERIUM (the pope and the
bishops teaching in harmony with him) is Jesus Christ's provision for determining and
preserving Catholic truth. (Ray Ryland, This Rock, 11/97)

Quick Explanation:
Mat 16:18 And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. Mat 16:19 I will give you the
keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven;
and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."
John 21:15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of
John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love
you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs." John 21:16 He then said to him a second time,
"Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love
you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep." John 21:17 He said to him the third time, "Simon,
son of John, do you love me?" Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time,
"Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love
you." (Jesus) said to him, "Feed my sheep.
That's it! The "Promise" and the "Foundation"!
(
Acts 20:28 KJV "feed") to govern, to teach with authority

Mat 16:18 And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of the netherworld (the powers of death - literally, the power of Hades)
shall not prevail against it. The power of Hades will not prevail against Peter because he
is the rock - the capstone that binds the power of Satan and the powers of hell. Just as
the rock of the Temple from which all the sacrifices were offered bound the power of
Satan, so likewise this 'new rock', Peter (and because he would not be with us forever,
the Papacy), will bind the power of hell and the 'gates of Hades' will not prevail against it.
From this statement of Christ we can conclude many things. One 'truth' would be that the
Papacy cannot teach error, on matters of Faith and Morals, or the "gates of hell" would
have overcome Christ's Church!
Genesis 22:18
