A key can be any object that can be used to lock or unlock something. And every believer is given a key to unlock the gate to the kingdom of God. 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 shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Mattew 16:19;
A key can be small by size and still open mighty locks; And without the appropriate key, it may be difficult to get in or see the inside of something.
The key that Jesus Christ was referring to in the scripture above is not the kind of key that can be seen with the physical eyes, it’s a spiritual key that has the power to lock or unlock both physical and spiritual objects.
More times than not when you buy a new equipment, especially electronic devices, it will often be followed with a user manual to help you understand the operations of such object. The same thing is with the key that Christ has given us, the key requires a user manual to guide us in understanding the proper workings of the key as well as how to use it. The user guide that comes with the key Christ has given us is the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible contains the word of God and the word of God is the user manual for the key Christ has given us.
Christ has given all believers -Christians- the key, but as it is that Christ is the only one worthy to open the book of life, likewise, only true believers that have a deep understanding of the word of God will be able to use the Christ-given key.
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside sealed with seven seals. And I saw a strong Angel proclaiming with a loud voice, who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? And no man in heaven, nor in earth neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. And I wept much because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. And one of the Elders saith unto me, weep not, behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda the root of David, hath prevailed to open the book and to loose the seven seals thereof. Revelations 5:1-5;
The Christ-given key has power over all things. It has the power to lock and unlock all doors and to do and undo all things. Having the key and understanding it uses gives you power and dominion over all things. But the key doesn’t come free.
First, you have to give your life to Christ and accept him as your Lord and Savior. Believing in all things that he died and resurrected so that you may have power and life in this life and in the life to come. Jesus answered and said unto him, verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born-again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3;
To have access to the kingdom of God and be able to use the Christ-given key, you have to be born-again. One of the other crucial things to do for the key is to crucify the deeds of flesh in you. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 15:50;
To be born-again means to be born of God -to be born of the spirit of God- And only until you’re born of the spirit of God, you can’t have access to the Christ-given key.
This was the works of flesh you need to detest: Galatians 5:16-21;
In the beginning, God gave men the key to life, but Adam lost the key to the devil by disobeying God. Christ came and died and went down to hell to collect the key from the devil and after the third day, He was resurrected. Now, the key that was lost by Adam is now what Christ is giving to anyone who truly believes in Him and is born of the spirit of God.
And the key of 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. Isiah 22:22;
The Christ-given key will give you dominion over all things; In your life, family, finance, and business. I’ve really spoken so much about what the key can do. But what is really that Key?
And the Lord said, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say unto this sycamine tree be thou plucked up by the root and be thou planted in the sea, and it should obey you. Luke 17:6; Through faith, we can exploit the full potential power of the Christ-given key. Now the Just shall live by faith… Hebrews 10:38;
The Christ-given key can only be powered by faith. But without faith it is impossible to please Him. Hebrews 11:16;
What Is Faith?
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report? Hebrews 11:1,2;
With faith, many testimonies was recorded in the Holy Bible. And by faith many men pleased God. Hebrews 11:3-11;
Enemy Of The Precious Key
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat. But, I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not, and when thou art converted, strengthened thy brethren. Luke 22:31,32;
Devil is the enemy of the precious key, he snatched it away from Adam and consequently, the key was lost to the whole world. Now, Christ has collected the key and handed it over to us once again, but the devil will continue to attempt to steal the key from us individually all over again. From the scripture above Simon Peter was His target but Christ had prayed for Him that His faith fail not. Because Christ understood that faith was important to power the key.
Let us improve on the work of our faith that we may easily use the power of the key to unlock all doors of blessings and lock the doors of hell in our lives.
The precious key is a gift from God, guide it jealously with your faith.
How Do You Protect The Precious Key?
1. Live only by the word of God daily, it will help you to avoid satanic deceits designed to trick you into submitting your key to the devil by throwing away your faith.
2. Be prayerful and be consistent with your prayers. Your prayer is a fellowship with God and it can help you subdue the power of temptation and satanic deceit. Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17;
In conclusion, understand this: as a believer, you have the Christ-given key, and with which you have dominion over all things and the power to do all things according to God’s will. But the power of the Christ-given key can only be activated with your faith; and it’s uses can only be understood by studying the word of God.
Above all, taking the shield of faith wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6:16;
Make confessions of your faith always, and it shall be well with your soul.
