Scripture: Revelation 3:7,8
Revelation 3:7,8 says, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens. I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.”’” The church at Philadelphia gets a great promise. No other church is promised to be kept from the great tribulation that is coming but the Philadelphians. Shouldn’t we take note and sign on as an insurance policy in case we misjudge the timing of the rapture? God has honored three things for these people: they have a little strength, they have kept the Word without compromising it and they have not denied the Lord. Those three things earn them an open door. But more than that, it is the anointing that goes with the Key of David that is so critical here. The Key of David is the manifestation of the Davidic Covenant which has both a theological and an operational application. In Christ, we have access to the Key of David. The question is, are we willing to pay the price to use it to save a nation? That offer is on the table!
