Barbie Breathitt is all about the "spiritual realm" and she most certainly takes you there as you read through her writings about them.
There's much insight you'll gain from her revelation about "Keys" to the Kingdom and the authority they give us. They come to us in different forms as we heed and listen to the Lord.
Be encouraged to grab hold of the keys the Lord is giving you! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Decrees Are Keys
By focusing and praying through these Scriptures below, I believe angelic gateways will be opened before you. The Bible tells us to ask when we have a need, to continually seek God's face, and knock on doors of gifting and opportunities. "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened" (Matthew 7:7-8).
The spiritual keys to open doors of access to the Kingdom of God, its ownership and God-given authority, rest upon our shoulders. Isaiah 22:22 reads, "The key of the house of David I will lay on His shoulder; so He shall open, and no one shall shut; and He shall shut, and no one shall open."
When we are faithful with the keys of responsibility we have been given, it is appropriate to ask God for more power and authority. If we are faithful with the little, He will make us rulers over much. New keys to different realms of understanding are granted when we utilize the keys of prayer and Scriptural declaration that we have already been given.
"The Word of God tests and tries us until we learn to trust God's power in our life."
As a prophetic act take the keys off your shoulder as you enter into prayer. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you to Scriptures that will unseal and loose areas in your life that have been locked or hidden away. Let the light of God penetrate every fiber of your being. Now, boldly pray Scriptures that unlock spiritual doors of opportunity and decree specific verses that release godly wisdom and prospects in the natural realms that no man can shut.
Keys through Christ and Our Power and Authority
We have been given keys that help us learn to live a prosperous life and advance the Kingdom of God. Jesus commended Peter when His Father gave Peter a foundational key to the revelation knowledge of Jesus' true identity as God. "Jesus came back, 'God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn't get that answer out of books or from teachers. My Father in Heaven, God Himself, let you in on this secret of who I really am. And now I'm going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together My Church, a Church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of Hell will be able to keep it out.'" (Matthew 16:18).
Keys represent the power and authority of ownership. As joint heirs of Christ and ambassadors of God, we are authorized to decree the Kingdom of Heaven will come and manifest on the earth. "And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven" (Matthew 16:19).

Jesus Christ died on the Cross to become the first born of many brethren that would continue to come to reconnect the gateways or portal between Heaven and earth. Jesus became the ladder or door that connected the Father, angels and the Holy Spirit to the world. "For those whom He foreknew (and loved and chose beforehand), He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son (and ultimately share in His complete sanctification), so that He would be the firstborn (the most beloved and honored) among many Believers" (Romans 8:29).
Upon Christ's resurrection and ascension Jesus sat down at the right hand of the Father having completed His work on earth. God establishes the works of His hands through the works of our hands so His glory will rise upon our children and us. It is time to stop being locked in our humanity and start functioning in the image of Christ. When we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, He is the door that gives true Believers access to our Heavenly Father. God has built and fitly framed a door of a holy temple to raise us up, to sit together with Christ Jesus in heavenly places, and to be a habitation of God through the Spirit. (Ephesians 2).
Supernatural Gifts as We are Born Again
Everyone is given both physical and spiritual gifts and talents, but not everybody discovers or develops their God-given abilities. God's apostles and prophets, through the laying on of their hands, can release and join their faith to anointed prayers to impart supernatural gifts and anointing to individuals. "For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established, that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me." (Romans 1:11-12)
These gifts are ignited when we are born again into the Spirit of God and increase when we are continually being filled or baptized with the Holy Spirit. "Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands" (Psalm 90:16-17).
As children of God, we have received the power of resurrection life, not a spirit for fear or timidity. We should manifest a childlike expectancy because the Spirit of God that dwells within us reveals our true identity in Christ. If we are children of God then we have an incredible inheritance and authority as joint heirs with Christ. When we suffer with Christ, we will also be glorified together with Him, to manifest His heavenly Kingdom here on earth. We access God's unlimited power through His name and favor when we are seated to administrate and rule as His Bride from a place of rest in the heavenly throne room (Romans 8:17).
New Wine and the Wilderness Keys
The measure of the new wine we are able to access, carry and release, depends upon the degree to which we have submitted ourselves to the transformation of our character by the renewing of our minds through Scripture. The new wine must be carried in new flexible Spirit-filled vessels otherwise the vessel will tear and the wine will be lost.
"Neither do men put new wine into old bottles; else the bottles break, and the wine runs out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved" (Matthew 9:17). The Bible says that when we are Believers, everything about us becomes new. We become new creatures in Christ Jesus. "Therefore if any person is in-grafted in Christ the Messiah he becomes a new creation altogether; the old previous moral corruption and spiritual sin condition has passed away. Behold, the fresh, new person has come" (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
Great keys are gained in the wilderness. Wilderness is uncharted territory in between the earthly natural spheres of soulish response and the spiritually divine realms of wisdom that are not of this world. Wilderness is a time of exile where we experience an isolated place of godly focus that empowers us to be transformed into Christ's image.
Brokenness enables us to respond in humility by submitting our will to God. The Word of God tests and tries us until we learn to trust God's power in our life. Every time we overcome by agreeing with God's process, we ascend into another dimension of faith to be rewarded with a greater level of revelation. We are continually evolving and ascending to a higher level of glory. The joy of the Lord strengthens us to possess the grandeur of the measure of promises God has for us.
These keys of authority empower us to press through mental strongholds and physical limitations in order to obtain wisdom to change. In the wilderness we are given the wisdom to know how to put to death our old ways and sin patterns.
"When we are faithful with the keys of responsibility we have been given it is appropriate to ask God for more power and authority."
The wilderness is also a place where we celebrate angelic intervention and rejoice over the divine wisdom we have gained. We experience a spiritual transformation in the wilderness. We acquire the maturity, wisdom and knowledge that are required to become the Bride of Christ. Our total dependence upon Christ empowers us to trust Him to fulfill the promised destiny given to us by God.
How Angels Work with Us
All of creation is called to bless the Lord for He is their Creator. Ask God to send the angels to minister understanding of how to use these spiritual keys and to release more keys. "You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways. When they cast you down, and you say, 'Exaltation will come!' Then He will save the humble person. He will even deliver one who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands" (Job 22:28-30).
When the hands that hold the keys to God's Kingdom are pure they can unlock doors and opportunities beyond our wildest imaginations. The heavens are open and ready. Angels are looking for those who believe in Jesus and will use His name to execute and decree the Word of God.
"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, 'These things says He who is holy, He who is true, "He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens. I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name" (Revelation 3:7-8).
Angels are scribes that record our acts and conversations on earth. God has written a great destiny upon the DNA of each person's soul. "Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored His name" (Malachi 3:16). Also, the scribe angels that God has assigned to me have given me spiritual insights that have helped me write my revelatory books and develop the many prophetic resources I have available.

"So the (the angel) said, 'Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince'" (Daniel 10:20-21).
Hunger and Thirst
We must hunger and thirst after righteousness; and seek God with our whole heart. Each of us is as close to and as intimate with God as we want to be. Building relationships takes a lot of dedicated time and diligent effort. By focusing our love and attention on God and continually walking close to Him, we empower the Holy Spirit to overshadow us, rest upon, indwell, and move in and through us.
The positive, God-filled conversations (words) we hold with others also sharpen us in the realm of the Spirit, so that doors are opened on our behalf, while negative, critical words close doors of opportunity or access and restrain the hands of angels who would otherwise be able to assist us. The choices we make on earth will determine how much destiny we walk in and realize. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
