HOLDER OF THE KEYS Matthew 28:16-20


You can never give what you don’t have. Jesus would never have said He would give the keys of the Kingdom of heaven if he didn’t have it, yes He did have it. Jesus had more than the key of the Kingdom of heaven in His possession, infact He has the keys of hell and death, Revelation 1:18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death”.

Shortly after His resurrection, he appeared to His disciples, V18 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth”. Beyond having the keys of the kingdom of heaven, hell and death, Jesus also affirmed here that all power in heaven and on earth has been given unto Him. All the powers of the kingdom of darkness submitted by force to His Lordship and authority.

Hebrews 11:6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”. You must believe in Jesus Christ as the holder of all powers in heaven and on earth and you must equally have capacity to increase your faith in Him. When you believe in Him, then you will be able to carry out any assignment He gives to you without wavering.

V19 “Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”. With faith in Jesus, you are sent out as His disciple to go on the offensive on the kingdom of darkness. You are sent out to rescue many souls under the captivity of the demonic world.

Whenever you come against opposition in life, remind yourself that all power in heaven and on earth belong to Jesus now, also all the keys are in His hands. If you do not have any problem with that, you shouldn’t have problem believing that He; Jesus has transferred all these authority and power unto you and you are at liberty to use it as you desire to the glory of God.


Prayer point: I have power over all the powers of the kingdom of darkness through Jesus in Jesus name.
