KEY OF DAVID


 

Pastor Allen gave an admonition.  Be open to what God is doing as he works individually and corporately. The presence of God is thick in this church today.  Let God be God.

Then Pastor introduced our special speaker, Chris Humphrey, who has been down the devil’s path but Jesus found him and he is called to minister.

His wife Shared a dream (click on the highlighted words to view the dream.)

Revelation 3:7-8  “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

David was a man after God’s own heart, and God knew David would do what ever he was told to do. Although he was the least of his brethren, God saw his soft and obedient heart, one that was continually filled with worship and praise.

Isaiah spoke of a valley of trouble, but he ended with Hope as we respond to God.

We have found a place of “Worship” not just with words and songs, but with our heart and body.

Satan fights worship and praise because he is jealous and wanted himself to be as God.

You can be doing Christian Discipline and Satan will whisper doubt and distraction, but learn to shut off what Satan is trying to do, to interrupt your worship to God. 

Take the Word with you into the secret place and discover WHO you are IN Christ.

We are not just attending “church,” but we are catching a glimpse of Jesus and his Glory.

Reach out and touch something greater, for God desires a close relationship with us all.

There is a wake up call, to stand in the gap for our city, and also for our nation.

We ask, “Why don’t we see revival?  Give us the KEY.”

The key was given to the church at Philadelphia.  The Key of David - - Worship and Praise.  The door is open and no one can shut it.  Hold Fast and enter in.

The key is granted to those who submit to a life style of devotion.

While David tended  to his sheep the Philistines were attacking his nation.  David sang and praised the Lord. 

We listen to the world’s events and although we should be aware, we are not to be concerned and be in fear.  Love will overcome.  David turned over the troubles to the Lord.

God inhabits the praises of His people. 

You might ask, “Why am I here?” 
God says, “You are here to make a difference.”

Jesus opened the door to the Holy of Holies when the veil of the temple was torn in twain.  Now we have access right into the throne room where Jesus sits.

You may ask, “Why am I still empty?”  Keeping rules didn’t fill the emptiness.  Many were rejected by their parents, thinking it was their fault.  They said they loved you but they hit, abused and violated.

In Christ you are accepted and loved.  Allow Jesus the forgiver to release your parents and bring you peace.  In this world there is evil, but God weeps over cities, over Jerusalem and over nations.
 
Get a revelation of His love.  God the Father gave Jesus to take your punishment and carry away your sin.  Love others the way God loves you.
 
The Key of David is for you.  The Door is open.
 
The question is, "Are you ready to walk through it?"
 
His only begotten son to take your place and carry away your sin.  Love others the way God loves you.H

  1. I don't know how many times I have read this verse, and I don't think I have ever noticed or wondered about this "key of David". This is such a revelation to me. It is hard to worship and praise when we are going through fiery trials, but you have shown me through this post that praise is the key we need to use to unlock this door that is set before us. I will ponder this for a long time and can't thank you enough for sharing what God lay upon your heart, Hazel. You are such a dear blessing. :)

  3. I live in Revelation many times, mostly b/c the Lord has me read it and read it and read it again. Been 3 times in the past week, and with other book portions, done by a number of writers, I have about 5 more to read. I've read the whole Bible for a stretch of time, nearly every year, but He has me read the prophetic portions, John, then I to III John, Jude, and Revelation. After many years, I understand a lot of it. Trusting Him is all I can do for the rest of my life. He is IT! Thanks for sharing.
