Upon-This-Rock

The Rock of Revelation Knowledge

Psalm 118: 22: “The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.”
.
Matthew 21: 42: “Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?”
.

I Peter 2: 4: “To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious.”

Matthew 16: 18: “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.”

“The head stone of the corner.” “A living stone.” “Upon this rock.” Revelation knowledge. Jesus operated in the power of the Holy Ghost—fresh revelation. A living stone, not a dead stone; abiding-in-the-Holy Ghost revelation, not separate-from-the-Holy Ghost, borrowed revelation. Fresh, not stale. Give us this daily bread; give us this daily revelation. Fresh revelation is like a fast-running mountain stream of cold, refreshing water. Stale, or borrowed, revelation is like disease-infested swamp water.

“Upon this rock [of fresh revelation] I will build my church.” What of the born again people who always resist the Holy Ghost? Talking to them about the Gospel is like talking to dead stones. They have had a salvation experience, but they cannot enter into the Promised Land of the Kingdom of Heaven; they may be in a church, but they are not in the Kingdom of Heaven. Their church (or the doctrines they adhere to) is not built on the power of the Holy Ghost, so the gates of hell will prevail against it. “They had a form of godliness, but they denied the power thereof.” They knew about God, but did not know Him intimately.

Acts 7: 51: “Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.”

How can we obey the voice of the Lord if there is no revelation? How can there be revelation if there is no faith? If we do not live by faith, we are living in sin. If a man is stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ear that means there is still much carnality and pride in his life. Humility is the fertile soil of faith, revelation and obedience. Faith, revelation, obedience: a trinity, a three-fold cord that is not easily broken—and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
