Why the Lord Jesus Gave the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven to Peter

Yang Qing

Baffled From Reading the Bible

When I got up early in the morning, I made a prayer, then opened up the Bible to Matthew 16:19, where the Lord Jesus says to Peter: “And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Reading this passage of scripture, I became confused, thinking: “Peter didn’t do any great work nor were the epistles he wrote very famous.

Hymn | The Spirit of Peter—The Banner of Victory

The Church of Almighty God,Eastern Lightning,Hymn
I
The Word appearing in the flesh is God Himself. He’s the real true God in front of our eyes. Before ages He predestined my birth in the last days. He’s conquered and saved, bestowed life on me. I forge this ultimate love with God, spirit of Peter shows in the last days. God’s creative power is limitless, new people He’s made in His image. I resolve to follow the practical God, come what may. I will not rest until I have known God. Unfit to be called human if I can’t suffer for Him. Ashamed if I cannot repay His love.

Eastern Lightning | The Hymn of God’s Word “In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything”

In the Age of Kingdom, the Word Accomplishes Everything

I
In the Age of Kingdom,
God ushers in a new age with the word.
He changes the means of His work,
does work of the entire age with the word.
This is the principle God works by in the Age of Word.
He became flesh to speak from different positions,
so man truly sees God, the Word appearing in the flesh,
sees His wonder, and sees His wisdom.
Such work is to better achieve
the goals of conquering man,
perfecting man, and eliminating man.
This is the true meaning of using the word
to work in the Age of Word, in the Age of Word.

II
Through the word, man comes to know
God’s work and His disposition.
Through the word, man knows his essence,
and knows what he ought to enter into.
All God’s work in the Age of Word
is accomplished through the word.
And man is revealed, eliminated,
and tried through the word.
Man sees the word, hears the word,
and knows the existence of the word.
So he believes in God’s existence,
almightiness and wisdom,
believes in God’s heart of love for man
and His desire to save man.
Though “word” is common and simple,
the word from the mouth of God in flesh
shakes the earth and heavens,
changes man’s heart, notions and old disposition,
and the old world.

III
Through the ages, only the God of today
works, speaks and saves man in this way.
Then, man lives under the guidance of the word,
shepherded and supplied by the word.
All people live in the world of the word,
in the curses and blessings of God’s word.
More are judged and chastised by the word.
The words and work are for saving man,
for achieving God’s will
and changing the old created world.
God created the world,
leads men throughout the universe,
conquers and saves them with the word.
And in the fullness of time,
He’ll bring the entire old world
to an end with the word.
Having achieved this,
His management plan is fully complete,
fully complete.

The Hymn of God’s Word “Peter’s Prayer of Experiencing Chastisement and Judgment”

Peter’s Prayer of Experiencing Chastisement and Judgment

1. God, when You treat me kindly I am delighted, and feel comfort; when You chastise me, I feel even greater comfort and joy. Although I am weak, and endure untold suffering, although there are tears and sadness, You know that this sadness is because of my disobedience, and because of my weakness. I weep because I cannot satisfy Your desires, I feel sorrow and regret because I am insufficient for Your requirements, but I am willing to attain this realm, I am willing to do all I can to satisfy You.

2. Your chastisement has brought me protection, and has given me the best salvation; Your judgment eclipses Your tolerance and patience. Without Your chastisement and judgment, I would not enjoy Your mercy and lovingkindness. Today, I see all the more that Your love has transcended the heavens and excelled all. Your love is not just mercy and lovingkindness; even more than that, it is chastisement and judgment. Your chastisement and judgment has given me so much. Without Your chastisement and judgment, not a single person would be cleansed, and not a single person would be able to experience the love of the Creator.
