There is kingly authority that is available through Isaiah 22:22 and the key of David. He has called us to rule and to reign with Him as His bride:
“The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so he shall open and no one shall shut; and he shall shut, and no one shall open.” – Isaiah 22:22
The kings who ruled during Biblical days, wore on their royal garments two keys — one sewn onto each shoulder. These keys signified that they were the governing authority over the entire land.
WE HAVE KINGLY AUTHORITY THAT GOD WANTS US TO USE
God wants His kings to rise up and take their place in the earth. We need an authority that goes beyond just what we say and what we pray. We need power to be demonstrated when we begin to speak the word of God. When we begin to prophesy, we want that word to come to pass.
Like Samuel, God wats to put an anointing upon us so that when we speak the words of God there is life on them; and those words don’t fall to the ground, they come to pass and people begin to listen to the Church.
God wants to challenge us to know that we are kings. As we step into positions of spiritual authority God will release us to worldwide prominence and expand our territories. He will take us places that we have never dreamed to release His presence and power on earth.
HOW TO ACCESS THE KEY OF DAVID
David was a lover of God — the key that he wielded was the key of intimacy with God. God has beed doing a work in those who have been in a place with Him in intimacy.
The key of David will loose for us what God has already loosed in Heaven on our behalf, and it will also bind things that God has already bound in heaven (Matthew 16:19).
When we operate in that key of intimacy, breakthrough will happen. Intimacy releases breakthrough.
JESUS IS THE KEY OF DAVID
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace, there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7)
Jesus came to the earth for a purpose: to seek and save that which was lost, (the authority that Adam lost in the Garden) see Luke 19:10. He’s talking about the mandate of spiritual dominion rule and reign in the earth that the devil snatched up when Adam fell in the Garden. Jesus is the One who opened all the doors that needed to be opened and shut all the doors that need to be shut when He died and rose from the dead.
The key of David will loose for us what God has already loosed in Heaven on our behalf, and it will also bind the things that God has already bound in Heaven:
Matthew 16:19 — “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of Heaven….”
Jesus states that He is getting the Keys back and giving them to the Church.
We access the keys when we access Jesus. Knowing Jesus as a friend who is closer than a brother releases a co-laboring partnership empowered through intimacy. And that intimate relationship with Jesus releases to us the keys of revelation and knowledge that will transform nations.
