- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
18:18 Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth - By excommunication, pronounced in the spirit and power of Christ. Whatsoever ye shall loose - By absolution from that sentence. In the primitive Church, absolution meant no more than a discharge from Church censure. Again I say - And not only your intercession for the penitent, but all your united prayers, shall be heard. How great then is the power of joint prayer! If two of you - Suppose a man and his wife. #Matt 16:19|.
Mt 18:18 Whatsoever ye shall bind. What was said to Peter (Mt 16:19) is addressed to all the apostles. It is spoken to all a second time (Joh 20:23). All had the keys as well as Peter. The apostles were, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, to establish the rules of the church discipline, as well as to announce the conditions of salvation by the gospel. These rules and conditions, found in Acts and the Epistles, bind and loose men. As they were to speak and write as moved by the Holy Spirit, what they announced would be ratified in heaven.

We have the power to change things to be how we want them to be and also we have the power to let things fall apart

God knows all of our thoughts. So he knows all of our choices before we even make them. As Jesus did knowing his fathers thoughts. That his choice was his father's choice. As my choice is love, because; "GOD" is LOVE.

THIS VERSE SHOWS US AS BELIEVERS THE POWER OF CHRIST. THROUGH THE CROSS WE HAVE BEEN GIVE THE AUTHORITY TO EXCERSISE THIS POWER. WE ARE SUPPOSE TO PROHIBIT THE ACTS OF THE ENEMY(SATAN) BY BELIVING THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST.LOOKING AT VERSE 19 ON THE SAME CHAPTER YOU WILL REALIZE THAT THE WORD, "AGREE" ON EARTH CONCERNING ANYTHING THAT THEY ASK, IT WILL BE DONE FOR THEM BY MY FATHER IN HEAVEN'. THROUGH THE CROSS OF CALVARY THE CHURCH HAS BEEN GIVEN THE RIGHT TO USE THE POWER OF CHRIST.UNLESS WE BECOME WHAT PAUL THE APOSTLE SAYS IN EPHESIANS 1:18-19 "the eyes of your understanding being enlightened ; that you may know what is the hope of His calling , what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19.'and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20' which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places'.Verse 22' And He put all things under His feet , and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23' which is His body , the fullness of Him who fills all in all. THEREFORE THE CHURCH WHICH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST HAS BEEN GIVEN THE AUTHORITY TO ACT ON EARTH LIKE CHRIST. -GOD BLESS YOU!
