Scripture: Revelation 1:18
Verse 18 says, “I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.” Jesus openly proclaims at the beginning of the book of Revelation that He holds the keys to death and hell. Are there any other keys that Jesus holds that may add to the picture of what was given to the church in the Great Commission and are we accepting the use of those keys as they were imparted to us? The answer is yes. Keys only work when we physically take them and place them in the lock and turn until the door opens. We have a critical part to play in the process. Without taking the key and acting, the door will never open. Are we using the keys which have been placed in our hands?
