A Classic CCM Song for Holy Saturday – He Holds the Keys (Steve Green)

Steve Green performing his classic “He Holds the Keys” in concert in 1987.  The song appears on his 1984 album People Need the Lord.  I hear this song in my head whenever I see any iconography regarding Christ and the Harrowing of Hell….!

(scroll down below the icon to see Scriptures that tie in with the song and the painting…)

Acts 2:24 – God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

1 Peter 3:18-19 – For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison,

Colossians 2:13-15 – And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.
