Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” – Matt 16:19

The keys to the kingdom of heaven represent the authority of Jesus Christ. Whoever has the keys has the power to open and shut the door. Jesus has given you the authority you need to see heaven come to earth!

Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. – Lk 10:19

Your prayer life will be transformed when you realize you carry the authority of Jesus Christ. Whatever you command on earth will take place in heaven! In other words, the angels of heaven move in parallel with the requests you make here on earth! When you declare supernatural breakthrough, the windows of heaven will open up and pour out the resources needed for heaven to invade earth.

You are filled with God’s Holy Spirit: the same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead (Rom 8:11). It’s time to step up and step out in the authority Jesus has given you. It’s time to command earth to start looking more like heaven in Jesus’ name!


Father, thank You for trusting me with the authority of heaven. Thank You for blessing me with the power of the name Jesus Christ. I accept the responsibility of declaring Your word out over every dark situation in my life, and commanding light to come forth!
