Today we’re in the most northern territory of Israel at the Syrian border at Al Quneitra,Syria. Here we find the Gate of Abraham dating back to the Old Testament 4,000 years! The ancient structure from the Canaanite period of the Bronze Age is made of mud and is thought to have been built around 1750 B.C! From there we traveled to Caesarea Philippi to the ancient Roman city. History tells us that this place was a place of great evil and inexplicable evil! In Matthew 16, Jesus was here with the disciples and He had a remarkable exchange with Peter! Matthew 16:15-18
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 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.
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.
In this place of darkness and great evil, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords walked up to the epicenter of wickedness and reminded his followers, His disciples and the Church that the gates of hell, would NEVER, not EVER prevail against it! What an incredible morning! From the Old Testament and Abraham to Jesus and the New Testament in less than an hour!! Talk about Bible explosion! Your BIBLE is ALIVE!
