Know Who Has the Keys!

I had a voracious appetited on how to excel in life. I studied things like neurolinguistic programming, self-hypnosis, and all manner of self-help books which would number into the hundreds (this was before the internet!). I was fascinated with the mind and how people can use mind hacks to get ahead. I bet I was the only 8th grader with a subscription to Psychology Today! lol, I was doing self-hypnosis, NLP, and Guided imagery in my teens.  Just so you know where I am coming from.

When I encountered the Author and Finisher of our faith in 1995, I realized that wisdom from man was foolishness in comparison to what God has. God has Kingdom Keys for TRUE Deliverance! He has a treasure in the field worth selling all we possess to get it!

I am on a serious quest for the Keys to the Kingdom, but the only way a person is going to get them is to KNOW THE AUTHOR PERSONALLY!

It is not about a bunch of principles or techniques to use. This is what the world teaches. It is about actually knowing Jesus.  JESUS HOLDS THE KEYS!

1 Corinthians 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

Matthew 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
