The Kingdom Key

Key Verse

“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).

TEXT — Matthew 16:13-20


“Imagine any problem you have to be a huge, locked door standing in front of you. Now see yourself taking a golden key out of your pocket. You brought the key here with you when you arrived on this planet, but you sometimes forget to use it. See yourself putting it into the keyhole, then watch the door swing open…” This writer’s description of the power of a key demonstrates the timeless, universality and indispensable usefulness of keys in human society.

Within the context of the Scripture, keys are symbols of authority and an opportunity to open any closed entrance (spiritual or physical) by a believer. When you become a member of God’s kingdom through salvation from Christ, you have access to this key, which you can use either to bind or to loose. The emphatic promise of Christ to His disciples in verse 19 of this passage confirms our authority and the status that we occupy in His kingdom. Beyond Peter and the early disciples who benefitted from that unlimited access to Kingdom resources, believers today have the same authority of Christ to bind and loose.

What are you seeking from God today? What are the things challenging you, your identity or authority? Bring out the key that Christ has given you, issue the authority and watch doors of blessings, victory, perfect health and other miracles open before you!

Remember that everyone can enjoy the same revelation about Christ, enter into same relationship with God and begin to enjoy the authority of the Kingdom. This key is available today for our use as long as we maintain that relationship with Christ and live in constant obedience to the word of God.

Thought for the day

He who has the key enjoys unlimited access to Kingdom resources and power.
