The King’s keys

“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

“Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, ‘Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.’
Revelation 1:12-18

“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the keys of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens.”
Revelation 3:7

“And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit.”
Revelation 9:1

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, hiding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain.”
Revelation 20:1

“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:18-19
