Updated Intel on How the Keys of the Kingdom Work!

A lot of things were spoken about the Keys of the Kingdom in the last stretch of the MO Letters until 2008.  Now many of us are left wondering, what else is there to discover about the Keys?  If they are one with the Word and God’s Love, what exactly does that mean?   Karen Lane explains very well about this in the comment section of a little rant I did in a Taiwanese farm land the other day.
Keys can also be wisdom, often with wisdom there has to be a certain balance to things as in when you put a key into a lock, unless the key is cut out, or in other words, balanced in a certain order then it won’t work so you won’t have the right key for the situation unless you have the right balance. For instance, a key verse on balance would be “A false balance is an abomination to the Lord but a just weight is his delight.” Also you are often wiser after the event so your key here is often to look at an event in the bible and how it played out, your key verse again being, “All these things happened unto them for examples and are written for our admonition (warn & correct) upon whom the ends of the world are come.” You can also look back to examples in our own life and see what worked by God and what didn’t work when we forget God. There is also a verse that actually speaks about common sense in volumes because it says, “There have no temptation taken you but such as is common to man.” What it means by common to man here is that it will be something that we will all understand and so our common sense will tell us what is right and wrong. Just about everyone on earth knows that it’s wrong to lie, cheat, steal, or even kill and even our consciences will tell us this so common sense can also be a key and there no excuses for anyone because God will show us the way to escape the temptation and to go with that common sense. So, the keys of the Kingdom can be somewhat cut out by an event of the past or they can be already cut by the Word of God, Jesus Himself being the key in this sense but as you say, it all boils down to the power of God being in those keys and that power of God being the Love of God in those keys. We must always remember that God isn’t a mere force, God is Love, the Devil is a force and he’s referred to as being a force because he has no love!

  1. Hi,
    I regard the Keys of the Kingdom as the authority Christ has delegated to his followers. Speaking of the Church, whatever we bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever we loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16).
    His granted authority is to those he sent out in his name, see Luke 10:19.
    I’ve blogged about it here.
    Hope you find it of interest.
    God bless.
