Keys of the kingdom: That which unlocks the kingdom of God so that humans may enter. The proclamation of the message that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; the confession that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. [Matthew 16:15-20]

King: the one in authority. In the Bible God [and Christ] is the ultimate King.

Kingdom of God, kingdom of heaven, kingdom of Christ: [1] God’s divine authority; [2] the reign of God [or Christ] in the hearts and lives of human beings; [3] the area or sphere in and over which God or Christ reigns; [4] the ultimate kingdom after Satan, sin and death are finally terminated.
