Scripture: John 5:22,23
John 5:22,23 states, For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.” Have we stopped to consider the fact that it is possible that our refusal to execute biblical justice and step into our Kingly/Priestly role dishonors the Lord Jesus. Jesus paid a very heavy price for three keys: the Key of David, the Key to Death and the Key to Hades. David accessed them in prayer to deal with those who would destroy God’s purpose for the land. Perhaps we should follow David’s example since the New Testament presents him as our example. Jesus uses those keys in the book of Revelation. Are we using those keys? Jesus told Peter, “…whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” That is the Key of David. Whatever we open, no man can shut. Whatever we shut, no man can open. The three keys work together. If we refuse to use, according to John 5, we are actually dishonoring the price Jesus paid for our salvation. Imagine getting to heaven and being called to account for not stopping the enemy because we refused to use the keys that were placed in our hands! I have fumbled around for the right key at the front door many times before I got into the house, but I was determined to get into that house because that is where my bed was. Are we determined to get into the house where we’re supposed to be living that was bought and paid for by Jesus? Perhaps there are beds there where real rest exists because the enemies are terminated!
