Scripture: Matthew 16:18-19
The third Scripture mentioned in our study Bibles concerning Revelation 3:7-8 explains the Key of David and is a very familiar passage in Matthew 16. Matthew 16:19 says, “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Jesus in His Own words declared that Peter would be a representative of the church and on the rock of the revelation of Who Christ is He would pour out this judicial anointing on the church. Whatever you put a stop to, I will put a stop to, whatever you turn loose, I will turn loose. The whole subject of binding and loosing is the use of the Key of David as it contributes to a harvest of nations. If we understood that we would be a lot more effective in praying covenant justice. Proclaiming the Judicial Christ over the impediments to a harvest in the nation is a Godly exercise. Because this understanding is not prevalent in the church today we find ourselves passive in the face of unspeakable evil when we should be quite active in bringing about and declaring the full measure of God’s judicial response! Many of us know the Supreme Court decided to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act on 6/26/2013, which means churches and pastors may be obligated to perform marriage ceremonies for homosexuals. Every Supreme Court Justice who voted to strike down the Word of the Lord should receive a visit from the Lord with a reward according to their works! The key to covenant justice has been placed in our hands. May the Lord reward each Justice according to Heaven’s legal standard! How much longer will the church be passive in the face of evil? Jesus was not passive in the face of evil. He spoke to fig trees and men saw the results! He overturned tables and destroyed or interrupted demonic business. As we represent the Lord by the Holy Spirit we will see the very same things as when Jesus walked on the earth and even greater ones. There are no more exciting times for the Lord to show up than the end of the age, and be both the Savior and the Judge! Pray Psalm 2:12 over the Supreme Court.
