Keys of the Kingdom: Over the past week the Holy Spirit has spoken to me about spiritual keys that unlock God’s purposes in the realm of nature.
Are you in a situation right now, Where is is there an obstacle, problem, or issue that stands in the way of God’s purpose for your life and that of others?
The Bible has great news! You are not powerless. You’re not helpless either. You have heavenly keys of authority to enforce your father’s intentions.
Kingdom keys represent your authority
Take a moment to consider your physical key phrase, if you have one . what does it say My own keychain includes a house key, car key, and office keys.
- The keys in your possession represent a right and privilege that you have. They allow you to enter a secure area through a door that others cannot pass through.
Your keys represent your ownership, your authority and your right of access.
Kingdom Key of Authority and Power
“These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can close, and what he closes no one can open.” (Revelation 3:7)
In the Bible—especially the New Testament—keys are a symbol of Authority and power.  Keys are a metaphor for spiritual authority.
And the kingdom of God is the realm of God’s dominion.
- So if we use keys in Jesus’ name, according to God’s purpose, we have the weight of Kingdom authority behind us!
The source of your authority
When Jesus rose from the dead, he declared : “All authority has been given to me in heaven and beyond on earth.” (Matthew 28:18) 
Jesus has all authority; He is the ultimate key holder. (Revelation 1:17-18 ) And He gives us His keys of authority and says, “Use these keys in My name.” (Matthew 16:19)

These keys are your right – at any given moment – God’s power fr to do God’s will.
Just as a key is useless if we neglect to use it or forget what it is for, Kingdom authority is at your disposal have but never use them.
1. Keys of the Kingdom are primarily held and used through your mouth.
We use physical keys to access our property by taking these keys in our hands and putting them in a lock. However, spiritual keys are primarily used in our mouths.
Keys turn and doors are unlocked as we make declarations and prophetic decrees.
Our words and prayers align with this agree God’s word, set power free.
2. Use keys to enter doors of opportunity
“I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door that no one can shut.” (Revelation 3:8)
In the New Testament, Paul uses the images of open and closed doors to speak of opportunities for ministry the gospel. (Col 4:3, 2 Cor 2:12-13)
- An “open door” is a metaphor for an opportunity and an entrance – whereas a “closed door” is that entrance means something is denied or blocked.
If God has given you a promise or an instruction, you can be sure that He has also given you keys to authorization to enter this domain.
3. Use the keys (authority) to allow or forbid
“I will give you the keys (authority) of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind [forbid, declare indecent and illegal] on earth will be [already] bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [allow, declare lawful] on earth will have been [already] loosed in heaven be.” (Matthew 16:19, AMP)
To use the keys of the kingdom of God, we must understand that our Father has called us to work with him in the work of his will to prevail on earth.
- The kingdom is the dominion of God. It is His divine government. 
Simply, God has delegated His authority to you to permit or forbid what He permits and what He does not permit.
There is it’s something you’re allowing right now, and the Holy Spirit puts His finger on it and says, “That’s not My will and you don’t have to give permission for this thing to work”?
Remember, you don’t have to use the terms “bind” and “loosen” to exercise your authority—the words or phrases themselves are not a formula that holds power.
4. Use the keys to free captives
“He sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to restore sight to the blind, to deliver the oppressed…” (Luke 4:18b)
No power or door that imprisons anyone, whether physical or spiritual, can stand against the keys of heaven.
In the context of spiritual warfare, “bind” refers to the authority we have to command a demonic influence to stop or cease or abandon activity, in Jesus names.
Losing has to do with what we allow and let go in Jesus name. (Matthew 16:19, Matthew 12:29)
We can also deliver a person from demonic bondage or disease. (Luke 13:16)
5. Use your Kingdom Keys in prayer
God opens doors in answer to prayer. The apostle Paul asked the church to pray:
“And pray for us, too , so that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.” (Col 4:3)
In Acts 12, Peter was imprisoned and the congregation was praying. Peter left prison when an angel freed him from his chains and opened the dungeon doors.
Doors of impossibility will open when you pray.
Angels are sent with keys to solve situations and release heavenly resources in answer to your prayer.
6. Use your Kingdom Keys while praising
As Paul and Silas sang hymns, the prison chains were broken and the doors flew open. What was secured and locked was suddenly unlocked! (Acts 16) God answered Paul and Silas with an earthquake that opened the prison doors.
When God says, “I will deliver you!” no door or wall can withstand Him. Keys of praise used in the spiritual realm open doors in the natural realm.
7. Use the name of Jesus – the master key
The name of Jesus is the master key that unlocks doors and enables you to enter the kingdom of miracles. In this moment of exercising Kingdom authority, you are Jesus’ representative.
- Captives shall be set free in Jesus’ name. (Acts 16:18)
- The sick shall be healed in Jesus name. (Acts 3:6, 4:30)
When we pray or minister in the name of Jesus, we do not exercise authority in our own name, but in the name of Jesus prevails any name.
8. Use your Kingdom Keys in acts of obedience
Speaking in harmony with God is powerful. However, obedience also opens doors.
God spoke to Philip through an angel and said to him, “Get up and go south along the road that leads from Jerusalem to Gaza.” ( Acts 8:26) This obedience enabled him to be in the right place at the right time to preach the gospel to an influential man from Ethiopia.
Philip didn’t know why God gave the instruction – he simply obeyed. And that obedience was a key that opened a door of influence.
Your obedience in response to hearing God’s voice will give you access to the future that God has in store for you.
Doors will open and obstacles will be removed as you go out at God’s command.
- The name of Jesus is the master key to your miracle
- This locked door could be a heavenly detour
