“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
Key: “a small piece of shaped metal with incisions cut to fit the inwards of a particular lock, which is inserted into a lock and turned to open or close it. Or each of several buttons on a panel for operating a computer, typewriter, or telephone.”
In the Greek a key is the mender of a pattern or something to unlock infinity or your future. Do you realize God gave you the key to life in the Word of God?
