On the 25th February, I saw a vision of a man walking on the earth and his head was inserted into Heaven. In the vision, the person looked like a strange shaped key, which had a hollow top where the head of the person would be and this connected to a pin of some sort in Heaven. When this man turned, a flat lid flapped down and golden glory rain poured out on the earth. I understood on seeing this vision that the person’s mind or understanding was fully opened and connected to Heaven’s treasure chest and as he turned, he was unlocking Heaven’s vaults of glory and releasing it to the earth realm. I also somehow knew that what I had seen was connected to the Malachi 3 scripture about opening the windows of Heaven.
I then began to search for a picture of the exact key I had seen, because it was so unusual and I knew its shape would be significant to the whole message I was receiving. I discovered that Keys with hollow ends are called “barrel” or drill keys. The hole fits over a pin in the lock. The pin acts as an obstruction to picking tools and a guide to keep the key centered. This is an important detail as only those whose minds are CENTERED or stayed on the Lord are kept in a double portion of peace and rest. The specific key I saw was a barrel key for winding a pocket watch. What I had witnessed was a person unlocking heaven’s timing through their revelation and understanding and thereby releasing the golden rain of glory upon others. The sons of Issacher are described as those who have understanding of the times and what the people ought to do.
Suddenly I remembered the scripture in Revelation 9 about a key being given to an angel and this key being used to open the bottomless pit.
Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
The key is a person who is handed over to the star that falls from heaven onto the earth i.e given over to satan. This person is then used to open the pit and release the demonic locusts which attack everyone who doesn’t have the seal of God on their forehead. Revelation 12 from verse 7 describes a war in the heavenly realm and the dragon and his angels being cast down to earth, unleashing terrible persecution upon the Church. However, at the same time, the woman is carried to the place prepared for her, where she is kept safe for a 3&1/2 year period.
If there is a key to the bottomless pit handed over to satan and used by him to unleash a huge demonic assault on the earth, then there can be someone who is a key to unlock heaven’s vaults used by the Angel of the Lord, Jesus. What I witnessed is the using of this person who is a barrel key to pour out the prophesied glory. I believe that person I saw represents those who have grown to mature manhood in Christ, into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph 4:13), those who have fully laid hold of the mind of Christ. The word ‘key’ comes from the Old English word meaning ‘serving to open or explain’. So this company who are walking in mature manhood in Christ release understanding or explain to others in a way that triggers breakthrough and a release of glory into situations. We are told concerning the turning of water to wine, that it was a manifestation of His glory:
Joh 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Jesus also explained to us what this elusive ‘glory’ is, when He prayed for the disciples in John 17:
Joh 17:22 I have given to them the glory which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one
When we walk in complete oneness and unity with the Godhead like Jesus did, then glory is manifested and what is stored up in Heaven comes to earth. This is depicted by the top end of the barrel key fitting over the pin in the heavenly realm, in order to unlock or release the storehouse of golden glory rain in the earth.
Lana Vawser recently released a word about the over 55s being keys and releasing the wisdom of God into situations. The Spirit also reminded me of a revelation I received at Pentecost in 2014:
‘As I was in worship today, I saw a golden bowl with a spout and had the sense that something was about to be poured out. Then some kind of whirlwind from heaven formed and silver dollar seeds were released in a stream from Heaven to earth on the wind (google to see an image of this plant and the silver dollar seeds).
I said ‘what are these?’ and the Lord said ‘dog-tags for my army – identity discs for their day of release’ and then I saw a hand with many keys and He spun around and flung the keys like arrows all across the earth (almost as if He was throwing a discus) and I knew these keys were His army with the names and identities He had given them. They came like pure silver currency fresh from the refiner’s fire. He was releasing His refined and ready army as keys that would open doors in the places to which He had flung them.
He was sending them as His heavenly currency, silver dollars, to engage in interactions and transactions in the earth realm to unlock doors that had been locked because of bureaucratic red tape in the spiritual realm over places. I saw where the enemy had been keeping things held up with legal wrangling, these people would walk in and operate with the authority of Heaven and overwrite what his people had allowed to be written into contracts by the enemy, through lack of understanding of Heaven’s purpose in the matter. Files would be closed and matters speedily resolved and doors unlocked.
These people would be keys that would cause situations to turn towards Heaven’s purpose and God’s will seemingly effortlessly. It was as if these keys were oiled so there was no friction when they came into contact with the locks. The Hand of God so moved them that doors sprung open suddenly. And behind them were startled faces of those locked up, who had lost all expectation of release! ‘
Modern keys are not like barrel keys. The fact that my vision depicted a barrel key tells us that this is an antique or ancient key for connecting to and unleashing the timing of Heaven. During the vision, I was connected to Malachi 3 and the bringing in of the whole tithe which triggers the opening of the windows or sluice-gates of Heaven. So this key is connected to the tithe, but not in the sense of coinage on this earth. Years ago, the Lord gave me a revelation concerning the prophetic interpretation of this scripture, as depicting a tithe company, who are fully set apart to the Lord. If you aren’t aware of this understanding, you may read, ”Let the whole tithe come in’’ at the following link
Mal 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Mal 3:11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts. Mal 3:12 And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.
It is the tithe company that are the barrel key connecting and fully aligning to the storehouse of Heaven, thus unlocking the timing of Heaven and opening the sluice-gates to release the golden rain. The word translated ‘food’ also means ‘something torn, that is, a fragment, for example, a fresh leaf, meat, prey, spoil’. When the tithe company walking in mature manhood access the storehouse of Heaven, meat is released, as opposed to milk. Only the meat of the Word will cause the Body to grow to maturity. Notice also that this Hebrew word can mean ‘leaf’. Does the Word not tell us that the leaves of the trees are for the healing of the nations?
What is contained in the ‘blessing’ that is poured out? This Hebrew word also means ‘prosperity, gift’. When this outpouring of blessing comes, there is also a simultaneous rebuking of the devourer and our land yields its fruit. Before this, there was fruit dropping to the ground before its time and no real harvest, but now that the sluice-gates are opened by this tithe company, the whole nature of ‘the land’ changes and it is called ‘a delightful land’. This connects us to the scripture in Isaiah 62 where the Lord bestows a new name upon His beloved; Hephzibah, which means ‘MY DELIGHT IS IN HER’.
Isa 62:4 You shall no more be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land be called Desolate any more. But you shall be called Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land be called Beulah [married]; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married…
So the firstfruits of the manifestation of His glory was at a wedding and now we see that glory is also poured out at the giving of a new name and a marriage. Recently I shared about a purple waterfall being the appointed portion of inheritance for the Bride. The receiving of it completely transforms her and she begins to release the roar of the Lion of Judah as she is changed into His likeness, from one degree of glory to another. In order to become part of that barrel key that slots into and accesses the storehouses of Heaven for others, we have to receive for ourselves the full measure of the mind of Christ toward us and allow that outpouring of sound spoken over us to do its full work. That requires spending time at His feet, allowing the light and sound of Heaven to fully penetrate our deepest being. I don’t know about you, but I desire to be a key to Heaven’s storehouse for others to experience that golden rain. Let’s carve out time to receive at His feet. Choose the good portion, like Mary did, and be among the company who has the firstfruits experience of resurrection power.
