Keys are important. They can open things that are locked, and they can lock up things we don’t want anyone to get to. Keys signify authority. If you have keys, you have access to things and responsibility to whatever those keys represent. In Revelation 1:18 Jesus tells us this. Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.” (Rev 1:17-18)

This is the greatest news that man could ever hear. The thing that scares man the most our Lord has the keys to, and Jesus has authority over. Anybody or everybody that reads this has had people that we love leave this world to go on to the next. Yet, because of not just the cross, but because Jesus rose from the grave the victory He has over the grave is our victory as well.

Jesus promised us in John chapter 14 that He was going to prepare a place for us and if He was going to prepare a place for us, He would come again and get us so where He is, we will be also. So, those loved ones that were saved and made Jesus Lord of their lives and have gone on before us, we will all be together again. It’s always about who has the keys. Do you know the One who holds those keys?
