Keys that God has Given Us

Sunday June 4, 2017

1 Corinthians 9:8, Galatians 5:25, and Acts 13:4 were bible verses looked at. Larry Mills spoke about holding a position as a janitor. He held all the keys to the building, which made him feel a sense of authority. What are you doing with the keys that God has given you? Was a questioned asked by Larry. Matthew 16:18. If you ask someone what the meaning of a church is you would get various responses. Larry mentioned about being more interested in what God says the meaning of church is. It was the first time in the bible that the word church is being used in representing the keys of authority, Matthew 16. a) The church will be built on the revelation of who Jesus is. Matthew 24:14. b) Not even the government of hell can stop the move of the Church. c) Matthew 18:18Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Jesus talks about giving His church keys, which is in the context of building the church. Larry read out of Colossians 1:13. Larry expanded on the fact that all we need is one word from the highest authority. Matthew 28:19. We have been given authority=keys for healing, casting out devils, and raising the dead. Larry had given and example of one of his granddaughters where she was given a fork to try to learn how  to eat with it. He expressed that his granddaughter had gotten the food everywhere else but in her mouth, but the fork wasn’t taken from her hand. That fork is parallel to what our keys are. God didn’t give us keys and then take them from us. We have been given keys now what are you going to do with them?
