Jesus asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" They replied, some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the prophets." Then He asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Then as Jesus answered Peter, He was actually saying (paraphrased) Peter, you have received this answer not by natural knowledge but by revelation from My father in heaven and upon this rock (revelation) I will build My church, and the gates of hell (imprisonment from the enemy through the kingdom of darkness) will not prevail against it. Then Jesus went on to say, "And 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 loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Jesus was speaking metaphorically of spiritual keys. He has given these keys to us, the body of Christ. He has given us authority in His name, power to bind the works of the devil, and loose people from bondage. He has given us keys to heal others from sickness, unshackle those who are bound, unlock and set people free from religious traditions and tear down strongholds. Keys are small and may seem insignificant but they could open huge doors. Small keys are used to open huge vaults that contain valuable possessions, but also lock them to keep thieves out. The apostle Paul said: For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. We need new keys when the Lord opens new doors because the old keys will no longer fit.
The Lord says, I have given you the keys to My kingdom and the authority to use My name. These keys will unlock the doors and deliver people from every kind of bondage. These keys will unlock shackles, set people free from all demonic oppression and release many from every affliction and stronghold. These are the keys that will set the captives free who are addicted to alcohol, drugs and pornography. They are keys to open the tombs and deliver those who need to be set free from religious mindsets and those who are in bondage to religious rituals. They will open the prison doors and deliver those from occult practices, powers of darkness, and from all the power of the enemy. I have given you the keys that will open the portals of heaven and bring revelation. These keys will also release My Glory on this earth as it is in heaven.
These are keys to the Spiritual gifts, which will be used in miracles, signs and wonders in a greater dimension than you have known before. These keys will unlock the door to your destiny and as you receive My gift of the keys to the Kingdom, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. I am releasing keys in prayer and intercession that will unlock the hidden mysteries of My word. I Am He who holds the Key of David. When I open a door no man can shut it and when I shut a door no man could open it. I will open the eyes of your understanding on a new level as I reveal the secrets of ancient mysteries. So come before Me and receive these keys which is your inheritance as a child of God as I release them into your hands; says the Lord.
Daniel 2:22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
Matthew 16:19 And 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 loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
1 Corinthians 16:9 For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
