You Hold The Keys

Matthew 16:19
I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.


Growing up in rural Olmstead, KY I can remember the sound of the building engineer, (back in the day we called them janitors) coming down the hallway of the school. You always knew he was coming because you could hear those keys jingling. There were a million keys on his hip and they went to every closet, door, cabinet, shed in our school. When you heard those keys you knew something was getting ready to be fixed.
We are God's building engineers. We hold the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. For every door we need to get into there is a key we already have possession of. Prayer is the key and faith unlocks the door. The devil can’t keep us locked up because we hold the keys. We have the authority to open up and lock up. We have the authority to bind and to loose. We have over a million keys to give us full access to the Kingdom of Heaven!

Jesus told his disciples, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom. “ The keys represent his teaching that he has given us and when we spread his teaching it’s like using keys to open up doors that were previously shut. Whatever we bind on earth will be bound in Heaven! Jesus told the disciples based upon our confession of faith he will build his church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against us. We have the keys. We have the authority and power! Nothing can keep us out and nothing is unreachable.

1. Whatever we want to cease we have the authority to bind it, to lock it up and God will back us up in heaven. What we do on earth echoes into eternity. It’s like fixing a leaky pipe. Once we use our turn key to cut off the drip God will cut off the supply if we ask him to. He will cut off Spiritual attack from symptomatic troubles. We bind up demonic attack and foolishness in the name of Jesus! We bind up an attack on our finances and our family in the Name of Jesus!

2. Whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. The power of Life and death is in your tongue, so whatever you decree, open up, God will do as long as it is in alignment with His will. The key has to fit God’s pattern of Holiness or else it ain't going to open up, but if it fits His will God will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing you will not have room to receive.

You have the Keys! Go open up that door!

Dear Heavenly Father, Loose him/her in the name of Jesus. No weapon formed against him/her will prosper! Bring them out and work it out for their good. We bind up poverty and debt and we loose Life and Life more abundantly. We bind up unemployment and recession and we loose prosperity and economic revitalization. We bind up crime and violence and we loose unity and sustainable urban development. We bind up depression and loose Joy. Thank you for my Keys! I’m ready to go fix what’s broken in my Life!

In Jesus Name!
Amen!
