Jesus told Peter in 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.
We believe and teach the plan of salvation as preached by Peter on the day of Pentecost found in Acts 2:38.
The Photo above shows two keys but there are three (3) keys that are speaking of in Acts 2:38
2) Baptism in the NAME Of JESUS
3) Receive The Gift Of The HOLY GHOST (With evidence of speaking in other tongues)
The #2 Key once you have been baptized in the name of Jesus (His Blood) it can never be removed. The # 1 key we can lose in Rev 2:4-5 **
We can lose the key of Repent, if we do we have to go back and repent and do our first work over, we cannot repent unless God gives us the knowledge to do so, Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of but the sorrow of the world worketh death. 2 Cor 7:9-10 (KJV)
** Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. Rev 2:4-5 (KJV)
Key #3 is a gift we can step out of the Power of the Holy Ghost, as my pastor said, we can speak in tongues all the way to Hell, it is the Power of the Holy Ghost that keeps us in the Grace of God and NOT the speaking in tongues in Acts 1:8 it says we shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come unto us, that power is to live a Holy Life, the Tongues is just the Evidence that we have received the Gift. It is the Power of God that keeps us.
The Baptizing in Tiles as the Trinity believes has no keeping power, which is why so many that say they are a “Christian” keep doing the same old Sins as they did before they were baptized. With man, it is impossible but with God, all things are possible. The word of God says, “If you Love Me keep my commandments” if we say we love him and do not keep his commandments we are “Liars”.
So we MUST have all three keys to enter the kingdom of Heaven, Born of the Water and of the Spirit and believe on him as the Scriptures has said, He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) John 7:38-39 (KJV).
So just as we need a key to start our Cars or open a lock on our door we need the KEYS to unlock the Spirit and the Kingdom of Heaven.
Remember Matthew 7:21 Not everyone that says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven!
As a song we sang in Church "I'm a Royal child adopted in a Royal family, I'm a Royal child kept by the Power of God!"
DO YOU HAVE ALL THREE KEYS??
