Scripture: Revelation 3:8-10
Perhaps another question we need to answer is, does the key of David open the door to judgment? According to the following verses Jesus opened a door for the church at Philadelphia. No one could shut what He opened. Verse 9 says that He will make those of the synagogue of satan come and worship at their feet. That sounds like making your enemy your footstool. That is part of the power in the key of David. That means the key of David has both the ability to open a door to blessing and to bring judgment on the enemy. Are we ready for that? That seems obvious. But where are we using it? Jesus said He was going to release judgment within the church. The synagogue of satan consisted of counterfeit believers. They pretended to be believers: they “…say they are Jews and are not, but lie…” Are we using the key of David within the church? We should be! Perhaps the reason the church looks the way it does, is that discerning people have been so layered over with tradition that they cannot judge and refuse to cleanse the body. God intended the body to be a self-cleansing agent. We desperately need justice!
