Isaiah 22:22 (b) By this figure our Lord is describing the right of JESUS CHRIST to rule and to reign. He only can consign men to Heaven or to hell. He has never delegated this power to another. (See Revelation 1:18).

Matthew 16:19 The two keys given to Peter were evidently the two Gospels: one Gospel for the Jews which included baptism for the remission of sins; the other Gospel for the Gentiles in which salvation is by faith alone. By means of these two Gospel keys, Peter was used of GOD to bring thousands to CHRIST.

Luke 11:52 (b) This key is probably the person of the Lord Jesus Himself for when He is ignored, overlooked, or denied in the Scriptures, then there can be no knowledge of the truth of GOD, nor of the will of GOD.

Revelation 1:18 (a) The Lord JESUS controls the destiny of the soul. He alone can send a man to hell. He alone decides the day of one's death. His will and decision in these matters is described as a key.

Revelation 3:7 (a) This represents the right of the Lord JESUS to erect the throne of David again, to sit upon it, and to execute sovereign powers. This right is described as a key.

Revelation 9:1 (a) The key in this passage represents the divine right and power given by GOD to the angel to open and close the pit of hell in order that the purposes of GOD might be performed.
