Sermon Notes

As Peter is commended that his confession that Jesus is the Christ, and that His church will be built upon this revelation, he is given keys to the kingdom. What are these keys? He is told that whatever they bind or loose on earth will be bound or loosed in heaven. We hear so much in the spirit-filled charismatic churches of ‘binding’ Satan. Is this what Jesus is referring to in Matthew? Can we actually bind Satan as a Christian? Or was Jesus referring to something else? We also look at Peter’s loving rebuke of Jesus and why Jesus’ response had to be immediate and scorching.
