Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church (in Matthew 16:18). The church – the body of Christ in 1 Cor 12:27 – is his physical manifestation on earth. We (the saved) are the ones who represent him on this planet in this life.
And no matter what happens on earth, I believe Jesus: the gates of hell will not have victory over him.
Even if Bill Gates is preparing the mark of the beast, the (Bill) gates of hell will not prevail over the body of Jesus Christ on earth of in heaven.
Some people (Christians included) seem to believe that Bill Gates, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, that guy who used to be President, Epstein, etc. all are some kind of superior “elites”. That they have special knowledge or insight. That they’re in touch with super secrets they’re keeping from the rest of us.
They do not have any such insight, abilities, or knowledge.
Allow me to remind you of a few things, my friends:
- The secret things belong to the Lord. (Deut 29:29; Daniel 2:22)
- There are no “deep” secrets of satan (Rev. 2:24). It’s all lies, deception, and weakness. The knowledge found in the Bible is and given by our Creator is MUCH deeper (1 Cor 2:10) and more powerful. Truth is better than the Lie.
- People who are leaders – but who do not follow the Lord – are blind leaders of the blind. And they all will fall into a ditch together according to what Jesus taught (Matt. 15:7-14)
Even if Bill Gates is preparing the literal mark of the beast, and even if the antichrist is alive right now and making plans to enslave all of humanity…I know the truth about how it all works and what happens in the end. You have access to that same knowledge and that same peaceful confidence that Jesus Christ is the one they’ll all have to bow down to in the end.
And in the end, the bad guys fall into a ditch (or a “pit” – Rev 20:3).
So don’t worry about it. Trust Jesus.
