VIII. MAIN BODY:

"I will lay upon his shoulder;"

It's a huge key, one that can fit a shoulder. It symbolizes power and authority from GOD. It's the same power and authority that GOD has, He delegated it to us. The LORD JESUS CHRIST is the Son of David in the flesh, and we are sons of GOD, therefore we have these power and authority.

Job 12:14 (Amplified Bible)

Behold, He tears down, and it cannot be built again; He shuts a man in, and none can open.

Matthew 18:16-20 (Amplified Bible)

But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses.

If he pays no attention to them [refusing to listen and obey], tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector.

Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.

Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.

For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

At that last verse in verse 20, it says finally who is the Source of the Authority and Power in us, that is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. We can do these because the LORD JESUS CHRIST is in our midst.

The keys can be used thru our declaration, thru our words, using our mouth.

Proverbs 18:21 (Amplified Bible)

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they who indulge in it shall eat the fruit of it [for death or life].

Revelation 1:18 (Amplified Bible)

And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).
