Kingdom Keys

It is time to walk in authority for we have been given the keys of The Kingdom.  The revelation of the door to Heaven is at hand and is manifesting to those who are fully committed to walk through that portal which reveals greater revelations of Heaven previously kept in secret.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 16:

13 When Jesus came to Caesarea Philippi, He asked his disciples this question: “What are the people saying about Me, the Son of Man? Who do they believe I am?”

14 They answered, “Some are convinced You are John the Baptizer, others say You are Elijah reincarnated, or Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”

15 “But you—who do You say that I am?” Jesus asked.

16 Simon Peter spoke up and said, “You are the Anointed One, the Son of the living God!”

17 Jesus replied, “You are favored and privileged Simeon, son of Jonah!  For you didn’t discover this on your own, but My Father in Heaven has supernaturally revealed it to you. 18 I give you the name Peter, a stone. And this rock will be the bedrock foundation on which I will build My church—my legislative assembly, and the power of death will not be able to overpower it! 19 I will give you the keys of Heaven’s Kingdom realm to forbid on earth that which is forbidden in Heaven, and to release on earth that which is released in Heaven.” 20 He then gave His disciples strict orders not to tell anyone that He was the Messiah.

The “keys” are symbols of authority and ruling power.  This refers to Isaiah chapter 22:

22 I will place upon his shoulders the key to the treasures of David’s palace. He will open doors that no one can shut, and he will shut doors that no one can open.

Further, John wrote by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 3:

7 Write the following to the messenger of the congregation in Philadelphia, for these are the solemn Words of the Holy One, the True One, Who has David’s key, Who opens doors that none can shut and Who closes doors that none can open:

8 I know all that you’ve done.  Now I have set before you a wide-open door that none can shut. For I know that you possess only a little power, yet you’ve kept My Word and haven’t denied My Name. 9 Watch how I deal with those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews but are not, for they’re lying. I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge how much I’ve Loved you. 10 Because you’ve passionately kept My message of perseverance, I will also keep you from the hour of proving that is coming to test every person on earth. 11 But I come swiftly, so cling tightly to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown of victory. 12 For the one who is victorious, I will make you to be a pillar in the sanctuary of My God, permanently secure. I will write on you the Name of My God and the name of the city of My God—the New Jerusalem, descending from My God out of Heaven. And I’ll write My Own Name on you. 13 So the one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is now saying to all the churches.

The key of David unlocks intimacy and prayer. David was a man who lived in grace centuries before the gospel of God’s grace was unveiled. In that sense, the key of David allowed him to view the future and live in the grace it would reveal.

The Kingdom of God is not a matter of rules about food and drink, but is in the realm of the Holy Spirit, filled with righteousness, peace, and joy. (Romans 14:17)  We must be born of the Spirit in order to enter into God’s Kingdom realm. To have the Holy Spirit is to have the realities of God’s Kingdom which includes HIS power and authority on earth for we have become HIS expressed image on earth as mature Sons and Daughters.

John wrote by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 4:

  1. Then suddenly, after I wrote down these messages, I saw a portal (door) open into the Heavenly realm, and the same trumpet-voice I heard speaking with me at the beginning said, “Ascend into this realm! I want to reveal to you what must happen after this.”

John did not simply watch these things happen through an open door, he was taken through the open door into the Heavenly realm.  This applies to us as well.

In chapter 3, John also wrote by THE SPIRIT:

20 Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear My Voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with Me.

Jesus knocking on the door points us to the process of an ancient Jewish wedding invitation. In the days of Jesus, a bridegroom and his father would come to the door of the bride-to-be carrying the betrothal cup of wine and the bride-price. Standing outside, they would knock. If she fully opened the door, she was saying, “Yes, I will be your bride.” Jesus and his Father, in the same way, are knocking on the doors of our hearts, inviting us to be the bride of Christ.

When you hear the sound of knocking on a door in The Spirit realm, you have been invited to be HIS Bride.  As always, it is your choice to accept.  However, be sure to inquire who is knocking.  Do not allow a counterfeit to enter.  Jesus will answer according to His Word!
