Mt. 16:19, “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.”
I love the Concordant Literal translation of this verse. I needed to hear it spoken with the correct tenses in place to really see what Jesus was saying. It stated it like this… “whatsoever you SHOULD BE BINDING on the earth shall be those things having been bound in the heavens, and whatsoever you SHOULD BE loosing on the earth shall be those having been loosed in the heavens.” Finally, it made sense. We are to bring those things that are in the heavens within our own consciousness (for where else do we operated from) and manifest them in the earth. Thy kingdome come … on earth as it is in heaven!
