Reflection. "The Truth of the power to bind and loose" About Matthew 16.19 By Pastor Adrian Pablos

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator. 

Several hasty and distorted interpretations of Bible verses "loose", they change the words of Jesus we love. It's almost irreverent look like "great preachers of the Lord" to snatch, rob God speak blessings. Among many other examples of heresies which have lived in other times would be worthy of a good, hot fire. 

It seems that time has forgotten one important matter or technique of biblical interpretation, which is called hermeneutics. This technique is simply to ensure the correct interpretation of the passage to quote, taking into account the context of writing, the historical, geographical, political, etc. 

The need for a hermeneutic discipline is given by the complexities of language, which often lead to different conclusions and even conflicting in regard to the meaning of a text. Hermeneutics tries to decipher the meaning behind the word and thereby tries exegesis of reason itself about meaning. 
Here is a simple example of a bad and good hermeneutics applied to a text: 

19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16 RV 1960 

Let us see now bad hermeneutics applied to this verse, which is very popular in congregations seeking cheers achieve material wealth of this world ... maybe you know them ?, call themselves princes, because they are children of the King ... 

"The Lord has given you, brother, the key to the Kingdom !!!!!, and all you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven !!! Hallelujah !!!! Unleash blessing on your life !!! Unleash plenty of money on your life !! Unleash health over your life !! You are a child of the King and Prince should live as !!! Unleash !!!! Unleash !!!!!! 

Now let's see a simple but good use of hermeneutics, this obviously does not "unleash" no cheer ... continue: 
First read the entire biblical context of this portion of Scripture 

3 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 Jesus replied Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ. Matthew 16 RV 1960 

After reading the only biblical context, we can realize that the Lord is talking about something else. The Lord says to Peter (pebble), which upon Him (Jesus, the Rock) will build the church and his sacrifice conquer death and the church did not suffer. Continuing the true interpretation arrived at the "magic" verse, let ... 

Jesus tells Peter will give THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ... this is very simple, the beloved Peter clearly receives the keys of the kingdom of heaven, which opened the door of salvation to three thousand men, only in its first evangelical speech the day of Pentecost. 

Also received from the hands of Our Lord the power of loosing and binding on earth and support of God from heaven to his initiative to do so. Again this is very simple, remember that Peter preached to Cornelius?Here's !, Pedro unleashed on earth to the Gentiles through the preaching of the gospel of Christ and opened the doors of heaven are. 

Is it fair to want to use this power that God gave us to "unleash prosperity"? 
Did Christ died for us to walk in a 4x4 truck? 

God bless.
