Binding and Loosing, Kingdom Keys!

Matthew 16:13 (NLT) When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?  14 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets. 15 Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God. 17 Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being. 18 Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.”
Let's look a little closer at the principle of binding and loosing from an additional scripture.  This kind of praying is based upon our relationship with Christ and understanding the authority that has been given to us by Him.  Authority is not taken, it is given.  God gave it to us.  Binding and loosing is to be done to establish righteousness.  It should never be done for selfish reasons.
Binding and loosing is also based upon the revelation of who Jesus is and His rights to give us kingdom keys.  Peter got the revelation of Jesus Christ and the keys to the Kingdom came with the revelation of Jesus Christ!  Keys represent access!
Binding and loosing are major keys that determines the outcome of many matters in our lives and existence.  Keys locks and unlocks, binds and frees.  Keys are objects of authority.  They say, yes, come in or no, you can't come in!
Keys lock our doors at night to protect us from predators and also save predators from breaking into our homes and getting shot!  using the right keys at the right time solves problems and saves time!  Keys are (authority) given to every believer.  We must study and understand our God given authority because it will make the difference in our approach to matters in this life. The believer has the ability to cause things to happen and the ability to forbid issues from happening! These prayer keys are effective only if we exercise them.
Joshua  stops the sun and the moon.
Joshua 10:12 (NLT) On the day the Lord gave the Israelites victory over the Amorites, Joshua prayed to the Lord in front of all the people of Israel. He said,
“Let the sun stand still over Gibeon, and the moon over the valley of Aijalon.”
13 So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies. Is this event not recorded in The Book of Jashar?  The sun stayed in the middle of the sky, and it did not set as on a normal day.  14 There has never been a day like this one before or since, when the Lord answered such a prayer. Surely the Lord fought for Israel that day!
Elijah's prayers!
James 5:17 (NLT) Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! 18 Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops.
Elijah shut up heaven for no rain!
1 Kings 17:1 Now Elijah, who was from Tishbe in Gilead, told King Ahab, “As surely as the Lord, the God of Israel, lives—the God I serve—there will be no dew or rain during the next few years until I give the word!  2 Then the Lord said to Elijah, 3 “Go to the east and hide by Kerith Brook, near where it enters the Jordan River. 4 Drink from the brook and eat what the ravens bring you, for I have commanded them to bring you food. 5 So Elijah did as the Lord told him and camped beside Kerith Brook, east of the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat each morning and evening, and he drank from the brook. 7 But after a while the brook dried up, for there was no rainfall anywhere in the land.
Elijah open the heaven for rain!
1 Kings 18:41 Then Elijah said to Ahab, “Go get something to eat and drink, for I hear a mighty rainstorm coming! 42 So Ahab went to eat and drink. But Elijah climbed to the top of Mount Carmel and bowed low to the ground and prayed with his face between his knees.  43 Then he said to his servant, “Go and look out toward the sea. The servant went and looked, then returned to Elijah and said, “I didn’t see anything. Seven times Elijah told him to go and look. 44 Finally the seventh time, his servant told him, “I saw a little cloud about the size of a man’s hand rising from the sea. Then Elijah shouted, “Hurry to Ahab and tell him, ‘Climb into your chariot and go back home. If you don’t hurry, the rain will stop you!’ 45 And soon the sky was black with clouds. A heavy wind brought a terrific rainstorm, and Ahab left quickly for Jezreel. 46 Then the Lord gave special strength to Elijah. He tucked his cloak into his belt and ran ahead of Ahab’s chariot all the way to the entrance of Jezreel.
We have Kingdom Keys also, but we must use them!
