Topic: You’ve Got The Keys [Wednesday, 19th July 2017]
And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
When we see scriptures like we have it in our lead text, we should be excited. Upon the revelation of Jesus as the Messiah of the world, Jesus told His disciples that He will give them the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Now, we must understand this fact. Man is the only spirit being that is in this material world physically. While we are seated with Christ in Heaven spiritually (Ephesians 2:6), we are here on earth to dominate, to determine what happens within our sphere of influence (Revelation 5:10).
While we bring the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth with our presence, causing God’s will to be done through us, we are the determinant factor of what heaven approves or disapproves here on earth, not God. The keys have been handed over to us since the day heaven came to us through the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4). This was demonstrated in Acts 12, after James was killed because of inaction from the church, Peter was supernaturally freed for the jaws of death when the church disapproved of his death and took action.
The keys of Heaven are with you, and you got to use them to advance God’s righteousness will. We must understand this, and start using the keys to superimpose God’s intentions in our sphere of influence. If you don’t do anything, heaven will not. Your passivity might just pass for approval, as it was in the case of James in Acts 12. Use the keys. Unlock doors, shut doors, change lives, save lives, heal the sick, raise the dead, shut the mouth of the oppressors. Yeah, you can do these. You’ve Got the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Use them just like a king will use his power to advance his course. Use them to advance your course as a king of the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth.
Keep winning daily.
I decree and declared that everything within my sphere of influence that are not in alignment with the will of God give way for God’s will now. I decree life in place of death, righteousness in place of sin, light in place of darkness, health in place of sickness, progress in place of retrogression, abundance in place of lack, victory in place of defeat, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
