Matthew Outline
Matthew 16:18

18 And I 1also say to you that you are 2aPeter, and upon 3this brock I will 4cbuild My 5dchurch, and the 6egates of fHades shall not prevail gagainst it.

184 The Lord's building of His church began on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4, 41-42). Yet the Lord's prophecy here still has not been fulfilled, even up to the twentieth century. The Lord is not building His church in Christendom, which is composed of the apostate Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant denominations. This prophecy is being fulfilled through the Lord's recovery, in which the building of the genuine church is being accomplished.
