Scripture: Isaiah 9:6,7
When it comes to the issue of justice in the earth and our representing the Lord and using His keys, we have to realize that according to Isaiah, the increase of His government in peace has no end. Jesus Himself sits on the Throne of David and over his Kingdom. The Key of David is defined in Isaiah 9:6-7. The Key of David is, “…to order it and establish it with judgment (mish-pawt) and justice (tsed-aw-kaw).” Mish-pawt is judgment and tsed-aw-kaw means conformity to an ethical and moral standard, which would be the law. We are told that from the time of Jesus on, the zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this. It is obvious that God is attempting to fully establish in us foundational Kingdom principles. We have an obligation to bring justice everywhere we go. There are three keys available, bought and paid for by Jesus, to bring His justice to the earth. Those keys are used first in the church, then in the world according to the pattern of Revelation. We cannot say that Jesus does not use those keys. Anyone who stands in the pulpit and says there is no more judgment – it all fell on Christ, obviously has not read the rest of Revelation. They do not understand the ascended, seated King and Judge of all the Earth. That kind of pulpit error makes it impossible for the church to represent Him. Jesus bought and paid for the keys to death, hell and the Throne of David, which is the ability to release it whenever it is needed. Possessing the keys of the Kingdom and using them against the purveyors of darkness is our generational call!
