I died and behold I am alive forever more, and I have the keys of Death and Hades. Revelation 1:18
What a set of keys this Jesus holds in His holy holey hands. A Day is coming when the formerly dead Jesus will come wielding these keys. Freeing the dead bodies of all from the confines of a claustrophobic grave and bringing life. Locking away the prince of darkness and all who have chosen his way.
These keys have opened the Kingdom of Heaven to you. Jesus lives for you and He lives to bring you where He is. He lives to lock away death and hell. He lives to make you alive. He lives to break death’s chains that loom so threatening over us. Death may one day take your life, but it will never lock you up. Death is a temporary situation because the One who died yet lives forever will not allow death to keep you.
Jesus, free me from death and hell; give me life. Amen.
