Why do so many Christians believe in the power in the name of Jesus and what can it do for Christians that believe in it? What does this name even mean for many Christians? Christians believe that Jesus Christ has given Christians the right and authority to use his name. What this means is that Christians have been given the power of attorney as we say in Law. It is authorisation given by one person (Jesus Christ) permitting another (Christians) to take action on his (Jesus Christ’s) behalf.
The person in question may believe that he is “possessed” or being controlled by the demon against his will, however, this is not so. Demons only do what they do because they have been given permission. Because a person may believe otherwise, the ministry facilitator may need to stop the ministry session and put on his “orientation hat” and teach the person the truth about what demons can and cannot do.
Satan, along with all demons, was defeated 2000 years ago and all he has left is deception. Keeping in mind that deception is only as powerful as it is believed. We need to be “sober and alert”, but not because he might harm us, attack us or oppress us, but only that each of us are susceptible to his schemes. Demons cannot harm us, cause us to feel something, or act out upon us apart from our willful participation. He is very limited in what he may do since “…He who was born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.” (1 Jo. 5:18) We need to be knowledgeable of how he operates and resist his “schemes”, but never fear anything that he could actually do, because he really cannot touch us. As the Apostle Paul declared, “no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes” (2 Cor. 2:11) Not being ignorant and operating in the truth seems to be the best warfare we can do.

THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM (PART 2) – KOINONIA 2019 | APOSTLE JOSHUA SELMAN NIMMAK
THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM (PART 2)
The keys of the Kingdom are access points that activate and deactivate possibilities. There is only one key to the Kingdom of God; Jesus Christ. But there are infinite keys in the Kingdom that make for a life of success and impact.
After accepting the Lordship of Christ, there should be a sequence to your spiritual growth.
A disorganized communication of kingdom truths will lead to an imbalance in your spiritual life.
The first entity a Christian should be introduced to after salvation is the Holy Spirit.
Transformation is very important for every believer and it involves;
1. Renewal: Disposing old ideologies.
2. Enlightenment: Replacing old ideologies with new and proper ones.
Ignorance is what alienates believers from their inheritance in Christ and grants Satan access into their lives. You must be passionate about growing in knowledge.
In this sermon, Apostle Joshua Selman states other keys that made up the keys to the Kingdom, which are:
* The Law of Faith.
Faith is your belief in God and the corresponding action you take based on that conviction
* The Law of Value.
Life operates based on a reward system. Your value (contribution) determines your rewardOne of the greatest keys in the Kingdom is the law of Honor.
* The Key of Honor
It is the discerning, celebrating and rewarding of a man for their uniqueness and their usefulness.

THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM
“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.” – Matt 16:19
The goal of this teaching is to bring to our remembrance the factors and principles of the Kingdom, responsible for a life of impact.
There is only one key to the Kingdom; Christ. He is the only access point to the Kingdom of God. There is only one key to the Kingdom, but the methods of God are numerous.
The keys of the Kingdom are the keys of knowledge, that gives enlightenment and authority. It is access to illumination and truth, that causes dominion.
* The Keys of the Kingdom are the keys that activate and deactivate possibilities in the earth realm.
* The keys of the Kingdom are principles backed up by the integrity of God and The major assignment of the believer is growing in the enlightenment that brings stability.
