“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.” Matthew 16:19
What a powerful scripture verse! Do you understand the authority that Jesus has given to you as a child of God? After selling out his birthright to the enemy in the Garden of Eden, man went under the control of the devil. But this illegal transfer of authority was not God’s plan and so our Saviour Jesus Christ, came and redeemed that which was lost. He took back the keys from the enemy and in this verse we read of Him giving it back to us. Not just to His disciples but to all who would believe on His name.
“The keys of the kingdom of heaven.” Keys represent ownership and authority. If you own your home you have keys for it. You have keys for your car. You have keys for your safety deposit box. Well, as a child of God you can have keys to the Kingdom of heaven. Praise the Lord! What provision our Father has made available to us. Doesn’t it make you wonder, then, if I have the keys; why do I not possess the kingdom of heaven in a more meaningful way?
Positionally, we have the keys, but, experientially, we are still living outside of the kingdom. It just does not make sense.
Having the keys is one thing, using the keys is another issue. Child of God, Jesus has taken back the keys and given them to you. You have the authority in His name to bind those demons that want to destroy you and your family. It is all in the keys. You also have the ability and spiritual power to loose your blessings that are stored in heaven so that they can be released in the earth.
God has done all that He is going to do for us. He has given us the keys. He can’t use them for us. We have to use them. We have to know and believe that we have the power to change our circumstances for the better. Arise in your spirit today. Refuse to live under your circumstances. Let the high praises of God be in your mouth as you use your authority in Jesus’ name and bind all the forces of hell.
You can do it. You must do it. You will do it. You have the keys. Loose your blessings today. Loose your children today. Loose you friends today. Loose yourself today in the name of Jesus. Take the kingdom of heaven by force today and release all that God has for you. It is yours because Jesus paid the price for you to access it. Arise in Jesus’ name and use your keys.
Lord, I will arise and use my keys that You have given to me. Thank You for opening the eyes of my understanding. Thank You that I am not a victim but a victor. Thank You for paying the price for me to live victoriously on the earth. Amen.
