O Come, Thou Key of David

Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains might quake at Your presence. Isaiah 64:1

Do you ever pray this prayer that Isaiah offered? Oh Lord, come down, and come quickly! Come and take us to our heavenly home, for You and You alone hold the key. God told Isaiah that Jesus would have the key of David, and in Revelation, Jesus calls Himself the One who has the key.

Then I will set the key of the house of David on his shoulder, when He opens no one will shut, when He shuts no one will open. Isaiah 22:22

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this... Revelation 3:7

Jesus holds the key to our heavenly home. He is the only way to eternal life.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6

Today, I am grateful that Jesus has gone to prepare my heavenly home.

"In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:2-3

I also rejoice that He promises that He will come again to receive me to Himself.

Rejoice! Our Key of David will come again. Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

dear Anonymous,

Jesus and God are one. These are Jesus' words in the Gospel of John:

"I and the Father are one." John 10:30

Jesus is God's son, and was sent to earth to pay the penalty for man's sin. Jesus was fully man and fully God. The gospel of John in the New Testament of the Bible is full of testimony about Jesus being fully God and fully man, and being one with the Father (God.)
