Jesus Has Given Us the KEYS to the Kingdom

A couple days ago… I did a post on ‘How to Take a Strong Man DOWN!‘ and in it… I detailed how Jesus told Peter he would give him the ‘keys to the kingdom’… and then proceeded to give Peter the authority to ‘bind & loose’ things on earth… and it would also be done in heaven.

A friend, who is a reader of the blog asked me a few days ago in so many words or less…. “What does it mean to loose and bind things on earth? Can you give me an example?”

I believe this is a good topic… so let’s dig further. Below, I have the response that I e-mailed back to her (with her name removed for privacy purposes)

Hi xxxxxx,

In reading the whole chapter in context… what Jesus was telling Peter was that, I’m going to give you a way to open up the door & gain access to the POWER that is in the Kingdom of Heaven (I will give you keys 2 the kingdom).

Jesus had told Peter he was going to use like a rock, or foundation… and build his church (God’s People) on Peter.

In order for Jesus to use Peter, the apostles, or any of us for that matter… to a great extent… we MUST be able to walk in power on this earth.

A major thing that Jesus said to people, who doubted that he was God, was the miracles & healing he did. Only God, or someone being used of God… can command the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, etc.

When it comes to ‘binding’ & ‘loosing’… we have to understand that there are demons on this earth that operate. Sickness & disease… is an example of an unclean spirit. Lust is another example of an unclean spirit.

A clean spirit would include joy, love, peace, mercy, forgiveness, etc.

The Bible tells us that ‘The power of life & death is in our tongue’… and also to ‘Speak those things that be not, as though they are’.

What Jesus is telling us is that we can command spirits (whether they are good or bad) to be BOUND, or to be locked up… or we can command them to be LOOSED, or set free.

Then Jesus takes it one step further by literally saying, that whatever we bind (or loose) here on this earth… HAS ALREADY been bound (or loosed) in heaven.

A good analogy of this would be during a war…. when ground troops (us) go into an enemy war zone and begin fighting, sometimes they cannot clear out the enemy with their guns, tanks, & artillery… so what do they do?

They call for air support (heaven). The air support comes in… drops a bunch of 2-ton bombs on the enemy’s head… and TOTALLY annihilates the enemy.

But the air support only comes… when the ground troops radio in for them, and give them the coordinates of where to drop the bombs.

In that same way… when we are in prayer… and we see things that are amiss such as sickness or unforgiveness, we can bind (or loose) it here on earth… and call for our air support to back us up!

Hope this helps!

Daniel
