In Matthew 16:18-19, Jesus invited His ekklesia into a council for governance. The idea of God working through a council is revealed from Genesis to Revelation. God governs the heavens through His angelic sons, who are often called sons of Elohim or bene elohim. God created the earth after the pattern found in heaven, including the creation of a family of human sons who were mandated to function as God’s representative governors in the earth. This book, The Ekklesia Council: A Tale of Two Families, lays the premise of the angelic family and the human family sitting together in God’s council and co-laboring to advance God’s Kingdom on the earth as it is in heaven. This Ekklesia book is my second attempt to mine the treasures discovered in Matthew 16:13-19, especially verses 18 and 19, which reads: 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. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
