Binding and Loosing (Matthew 16:18-19)
Scripture: Hebrews 12:16–12:17, Matthew 16:18–16:19
We begin with a discussion of Esau and how he despised the covenant promises of God. We show how the selling of our birthright consisting of covenant promises is happening today. We then discuss binding and loosing as taught in Matthew 16:18-19. The keys of the kingdom have to do with the terms of entrance. Binding and loosing have to do with the definition of what is forbidden or allowed. We conclude with a discussion of the new covenant.
