OBEY GOD After Peter said the words God revealed to him, Jesus told him that he would take a lead in building Jesus’ church and stated “I WILL GIVE YOU THE KEYS TO GOD’S KINGDOM. WHEN YOU SPEAK JUDGMENT HERE ON EARTH, THAT JUDGMENT WILL BE GOD’S JUDGMENT. WHEN YOU PROMISE FORGIVENESS HERE ON EARTH, THAT FORGIVENESS WILL BE GOD’S FORGIVENESS” [Mt 16:19 ER]. We have an example early in Peter’s ministry where he spoke judgement on Ananias and Sapphira for lying and God struck them both down dead [Ac 5:1-11]. Such power is given to individuals who obey God and it carries with it an awesome responsibility. Do you obey God?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
