(By Dutch Sheets) Jesus came to restore things on earth to God’s plan. He talked about this in Matthew 16 where he said, “I will build my church and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it (Matt. 16:18b). When He said, “build,” he used the Greek word for “family.” It’s not the word for “building a structure.” It’s the word for “building a family.” It means “to create a lineage or household or a family”. When Jesus chose that word, He was basically saying, “I’ve come to get the family back!” He

was saying, “I’ve come to reverse the fall (of man recorded in Genesis) and, so that Satan won’t have the last word; I have come to redeem. The plan that I established from the beginning will be fulfilled! I’m here to get the family back!” “This is why I have called you Peter (rock): for on this rock I will build My church. The church will reign triumphant even at the gates of hell.” (Matt. 16:18; VOICE). CONTINUE
