Last night and then again this morning there was a foreboding familiar spirit seeking to disrupt the peace. For two weeks now there has been atmospheric interference coming with voices which have been defeated. I sense as we enter fully into this new season, old voices are trying to tag along and attach themselves to us in order to come with us into this new season. Resist them, shake them off, do not let them attach to you as barnacles, they cannot come into the new season, they must remain dead on the wilderness floor.
On this day, 8/2/2022, the Lord said, “I am giving you (all) a new (8) key (2222) of access to express the kingdom of God inside of you (all).” In prayer this is what the Lord showed me and when I was done praying, I opened to Isaiah 22:22 which says, “Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, When he opens no one will shut, When he shuts no one will open.” This is the OT partner to the Matthew 16:19 NT verse “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” Both scriptures are in the context of authority (key) being removed from one and given to another. In Isaiah 22, the key was being removed from Shebnah and given to Eliakim; in Matthew 16, the key was being removed from the religious leaders and given to the apostles. Same key, new leader.
I see the keys of access to power and authority being removed off of the shoulder of one person and given to another. There are going to be many transfers of power taking place in every mountain of society. The Lord is removing the key from the shoulder of those who oppress and giving it to those who liberate; it is being removed from those who control and given to those who steward; it is being removed from those who hurt to those who help. We are about to see a major transfer of power and authority and the key of access is being given to those who will express the kingdom of God inside of them in order to liberate the people around them.
