The Keys of the Kingdom!!
What are keys?? Keys are usually little metal things that are “Keyed” to a lock by channels cut into a metal blank. WE have all watched the clerk at the hardware store take our key. Some are for your house, your apartment, your car, or truck, or even a motorcycle. Keys for lockers, cabinets, a safe, a locked box. All kinds of keys for all things locked.
The clerk takes your key. Puts it into the machine and then takes a blank and the machine then makes a mirror image of your key. It costs a couple of bucks and we have all kinds of freedom.
The thing about keys that is also interesting is that keys can be used to not only unlock or open things, but they are also used to close or lock things. Without keys it is almost impossible to open things and without keys it is almost impossible to lock things.
They are very handy and necessary tools for us to use. How can you drive a car without keys? To open the locked car door and to start the ignition. Then when you get where you are going, you turn off the car and lock the door so no one else can steal your car.
We take all of this for granted. But what happens when you cannot find your keys, or they get lost?? We are paralyzed!!! Useless!! And it can make us real angry, real fast. We do not even think about such things unless we lose use of our keys.
But here is a little secret for you about keys. Spiritual keys work the same way as regular keys. And I can teach you how to use Spiritual keys in the same way for Spiritual principles as the ones you use for your car!!
We do not think about it this way and because of that, the devil has blinded us to the power of Spiritual keys. They work just as well and in as many ways as regular keys, but if you can get this secret down and use the keys, it is amazing what we can do. And it is not about if maybe we can somehow make it work. They do work every time. As effectively and as usefully as regular keys and its not really anything about faith. Just knowledge.
So, I want to empower you right now to see and behold the power of Spiritual keys and how you can use them to totally revolutionize your life and walk before the Lord!!!
A Spiritual Key is simply a piece of understanding that fits into a specific situation. Just like how a natural key fits into a certain lock. And once there will open that lock and allow to you to proceed. If you do not have that key, or you do not know about it through ignorance, it can stop you cold from getting what you want or need.
And boy, oh boy. The Devil has used this secret against you to hold you captive most of your life. I can now take these keys and teach you how to unlock your own doors and move forward no matter where it is you want to go.
God is not against using keys. In fact, it was his idea. And he does not place any limitations upon you when it comes to keys unless you are trying to use this information for evil or to hurt yourself, or someone else.
It is hard to be more focused just because keys fit so many different situations and fit so many different devices. It is almost unlimited.
And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:
And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
And the key to the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so, he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.
And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken 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.
I am he that lives, and was dead; and behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death.
When I was a younger man, I had this dream. It has been one of the most telling and remembered dream of my life. In the dream I was taken down into the depths of the earth into this dark, dank and freezing cold grotto. I had been delivered there by my Angel, Mishael. At first my eyes were not accustomed to the darkness of the grotto with very little light. As my eyes began to be accustomed to the low light conditions I began to see that far back into the depths of the Grotto and up against the far wall, there were these waifs of human beings huddled against the side of the wall. They were wretched and pitiful beyond belief. They were shivering uncontrollably in the cold and they were so fearful that they could not move.
In the middle of this huge grotto were two rows of black, rusty iron bars running parallel to each other right in the middle of the grotto. This formed a hallway that was open with two separate chambers which held these humans, captive. Standing in this hallway was this really ugly Ogre. He was huge and had a big wart on his chin and was mean beyond measure. He was carrying this huge wooden club which had iron spikes sticking out of the top of the club in rows.
My Angel instructed me to look closely at the people who were huddled against the wall and as I strained to see, I noticed that every once in a while, one of them would hesitantly gain just a little bit of courage and would start moving towards the bars where there was a door. He would stumble and move really slowly, cautious of any movement from the Ogre, who was looking the other way.
As soon as this person got up to the bars and grabbed ahold of it, The Ogre suddenly turned, saw the person and turned and ran down the hallway formed by the bars. He held his club against the bars as he ran, snorting the whole time and the spikes on the club made this, Clank, Clank, Clank sound against the bars. It was FRIGHTENING!!! Instantly, that poor soul fled in terror back to the place where he had begun his foray and huddled in fear all the more. SHRIEK!! Then the Ogre would go back to where he was and looked away again, disinterested in the whole affair.
At that moment, my Angel said, “Look at the door in the bars and tell me what you see!” So, I looked and stared and barely made out in the dim light, that hey!! The door was NOT locked!!!
At that moment a voice spoke out of the darkness that made me shiver and he said, “On the day that I died on the cross. I descended down into the bowels of the earth. While I was there, I took the keys of Hell and death away from the devil. And I NEVER gave them back!!!
The doors of your personal Hell are not locked anymore and no one including the Devil himself can hold you captive against your will!! You are free, to walk out and be free any time you want because of what he did for us. Jesus has given us the keys to unlock the door of our bondage and it is free and without cost to anyone who will just believe!!!
