Keys to the Kingdom

This week I emailed a friend, and asked her to pray for me, her pastor just happened to be walking through her door so they called and all prayed for me. The pastor kept talking about the Key of David, authority and about doors being opened to me. After the call, I read a little bit about the Key of David and I got kind of excited about it.

Then today, I was with the Lord and He kept saying, “it will cost you everything.” I didn’t know what he meant, but then He was standing before me and He had this beautiful gold crown on; I just wanted to stare at it. I could tell that God really wanted me to notice his crown. When I see Him, He is not always wearing it.

He turned to his right, stretching out his hand, and behind him was a beautiful kingdom.

He said “I want to give you this.”

Then He reached out and in His hand were keys.

He said, “These keys unlock the doors in this kingdom.”

Then I saw him take one of the keys and put it up into the heavens and turn it; when he did, things fell from heaven to earth. It looked like glory just raining down, as a ray of light from heaven., but there was substance in the Glory! He did that a couple of times as I watched.

Then he showed me I can even take the keys and unlock things in people’s hearts, even my own heart. I saw Him put the key in a person’s heart and turn it. When He did, light came forth just like it had from the heavens.

Then He told me these keys can also lock up bad things on earth; evil, wicked things could be bound.

He told me I could have the keys but…

“it would cost me everything.”

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:19 AMP)

“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. (Matthew 13:44 WEB)

And I will clothe him with your robe and will bind your girdle on him and will commit your authority to his hand; he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. And the key of the house of David I will lay upon his shoulder; he shall open and no one shall shut, he shall shut and no one shall open. (Isaiah 22:21, 22 AMP)

Matt5:3 “Happy are people who are hopeless, because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

“Happy are people whose lives are harassed because they are righteous, because the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
