The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail

The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail (Matthew 16:13-18)

Phillip Stuckey, March 27, 2022
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

In the Gospel of Matthew, we read about Peter’s confession that Jesus is the Christ. And in response to Peter’s confession, Jesus promises that He will build His Church and says that the “gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). What did Jesus mean by this phrase and how can it encourage us in our walk with the Lord?

Matthew 16:13–18 (Listen)

13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
