20. The 22nd Mystery of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

MATTHEW 16:13-20



When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

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.

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.

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.

Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

E-5 I remember, dear brother, belonged to the same church that I belonged to.

He said, "Brother Branham, the Bible said that whosoever believeth that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, is borned of the Spirit of God."

And I said, "It's also written: that no man can say that Jesus is the Christ, only by the Holy Ghost." See? It's all... See?

He said, "Well, if you believe it..."

I said, "You're taking what somebody else said. You've got to have a witness of that (See?), know yourself."

You're saying what mother said, what father said, what the minister said. But when He asked Peter, "Who do you say I am."

He said, "Thou art Christ, the Son of--of God."

He said, "Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jonas, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father which is in heaven. And upon this rock I'll build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Hold fast to the Rock. Do what's right. God will bless you.

E-21 Jesus said, when He come off the Mount Transfiguration, He said, "Who does man say I, the Son of Man, am?"

"Some said Thou art Moses, and some said You're Elias, and the prophet."

He said, "But Who do you say that I am?"

And Peter, listen, stepping up, said, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Notice, quickly, Jesus said, "Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you." Amen. Watch it. "You never learned this at a seminary. You never learned this from man."

Paul said that he didn't come preaching the wisdom of man. But he come preaching the power of Christ, that your faith might not rest upon the wisdom of man, but by the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"Blessed art thou, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father which is in heaven." Notice. "And upon this rock, I'll build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

Clergyman, my brethren, the Catholics hear you say, "He built it on Peter which was a rock." If he did, he backslid in a few days.

Notice, one of them said it was on Christ. No. Christ is the Word. Christ is the Revelation of God. But He said, "Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father which is in heaven. Upon the spiritual revelation of Jesus Christ, being the Son of God, is where He builds His church, and the gates of hell can't prevail against it.

Wasn't Christ the rock. Neither was... Well, it Christ the rock in one way. But what He was speaking to Peter, it was the spiritual revealed truth, a witness of God that that is the Son of God. "Flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but My Father which is in heaven has revealed it to you." It's a spiritual revelation. You can only receive it as God will permit it. "For flesh and blood has not revealed it, but My Father which is in heaven has revealed it to you." spiritual revelation.
