Heavenly Hosts

Unauthorized Authority and the Courts of Heaven

There is a distinction between “hosts of Heaven” and “angels.” When the Bible uses the term “host” it is a female word. When it uses “angels” there is a male connotation to the word. For the purpose of the workbook we are using the term “Heavenly hosts” to refer to all of God’s servants in Heaven, as does most of the Christian community.

What are our rights concerning God’s servants? Knowing the boundaries will keep us out of trouble. Stepping outside our authority may limit what authority we have.

Religious Spirit Invasion

Religious Spirit Attack

The Lord used several items in my life to demonstrate what is happening in the Body of Christ:

  • events in my life
  • dreams He sent to me
  • dreams from another

This was not the most pleasant experience, nor  is revealing to you, my failure and the correction I received. I pray that this information will help you in the days to come.

Wrongly Appropriated Authority

Unauthorized Authority and the Courts of Heaven

Are there limits to man’s authority on this Earth? Are there consequences if we step outside our authority? For many years I believed that “all authority” was given to me because so many noted preachers said it was so. Recently, God has shown me that assumption is not supported by the Word of God.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1 AKJV)

While this verse says that there is no condemnation for Christians “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, it does not say that we can do anything we want or that any sin in our lives is acceptable. If we are walking with the Spirit of God, He will lead us out of sin. To find out what “condemnation” this is referring to, we must continue reading:

Vials of Wrath

The Fate of the World: Vials of Wrath in Revelation

Many people don’t want to talk about the Book of Revelation. They ask, “How could a loving God pour out wrath upon people?” If you read the Old Testament, you will find out why. 

All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness… (2 Timothy 3:16 AKJV)

Paul is instructing his new young leader about scripture found in the Old Testament. When we follow Paul’s advice, it is easy to see a decided trend in the stories of God’s people. Our Father would let them continue in sin for a certain period of time. Then, consequences would come - sometimes hundreds of years later. Several verses in the New Testament seem to contradict this aspect of God. Let’s look at one of those very closely:

Three Woes

Three Woes of Revelation

Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. (2 Timothy 2:14 NIV) 

In this scripture Paul is instructing a young leader, Timothy. The items in Revelation that we have no absolute interpretation of should not cause petty disagreements. We should be able to look at the items we can definitely identify and agree to disagree about the rest. The last three trumpets are events we should be willing to disagree about for they most definitely could be metaphorical.

Revelation Seals 4-7

 

The first three seals saw the emergence of the Antichrist and two of the “horsemen of the apocalypse.”  These occur in the first part of the tribulation or the final of Daniel’s weeks. Let’s continue looking at the remaining seals the Lamb of God will break before God’s wrath is unleashed on this earth.

Fourth Seal

And when he had opened the fourth seal…  behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7-8)

Death quickly follows famine for we see hunger is one of the tools used for death to take life. It is interesting to note that only one-fourth “part of the earth.” Since it is part of the earth and not a percentage of mankind, it is likely that only some countries will experience the effects of this seal.

First Three Seals of Revelation and the Antichrist


If we look at Daniel and Revelation, then we will know when the seven year tribulation will begin as certain key events occur. Much of the world may be unaffected at first, so knowing what to look for is vital!

When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15 AMPC)

We were told by our Lord that we should look for and recognize this event as being close to persecution and His return to rule and reign. This also means Christians will be around when it happens. What is the “abomination of desolation?” Discussing the events surrounding the return of our Lord should show us what to look for and help us pinpoint this event.

Studying the events around the second coming should invigorate the body of Christ. After all, we are all expectantly waiting for this time. Unfortunately, instead of uniting us as a body working for the Kingdom of Heaven, it often creates division and strife. As we continue looking into the Book of Revelation, please remember that what we choose to believe concerning the return of the Lord doesn’t affect our salvation.

We are all brothers and sisters, adopted into the family of God. If what you believe doesn’t line up with what I believe, that is okay. We can agree to disagree and celebrate the fact that one day, we will all know  the truth!

Charismatic Witchcraft and Witchcraft Prayers

 


What is Charismatic Witchcraft

Charismatic means to exercise a compelling charm which inspires devotion in others. This can be hard to distinguish from the anointing of God which draws people to a leader. The way to discern between the two is by their actions: All Christian leaders should continually point to God as the source AND teach you how to connect with Him directly. Some leaders will unwittingly use a form of witchcraft to keep the focus on themselves rather than God.

The Bible uses the word kesheph (keh-shef) for sorcery and witchcraft. The best New Testament example of what leads us into operating in witchcraft is Simon the sorcerer.

Healing Your Soul

Healing Your Soul

By Sandra Perreaux

If we go back to the Book of Genesis, we can see God’s original intention and plan for mankind through His created beings, Adam and Eve and how, through the fall and the ongoing influence of sin down through the generations we became damaged in our souls and bodies.

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them…” (Genesis 1:26–27 NKJV)

and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7 NKJV)

There are two important things to note in these accounts of the creation of mankind.

Strengthening Your Spirit

Strengthening Your Spirit 

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)

Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians demonstrates that we are a three-part being, just like our creator. God is a spirit, and we are spirit beings who have a soul and live in a body. This is why Paul listed the three parts to every human in this order. Many Christians have been taught we have a spirit, soul and body but not too many understand the role of each of them. Some believe the soul and spirit are the same but as you can see, that is not what the Bible says.

Heavenly Lawsuits and Financial Breakthrough


Heavenly Lawsuits and Financial Restitution

When our Facebook group began, it was Courts of Heaven – Worldwide. At that time, you might have seen and even signed the “Class Action Lawsuit” against the Kingdom of Darkness for financial restitution in our “files” section. I began preparing this for filing in the Courts of Heaven by reviewing the document in the Agape Tea and Coffee meeting. When I asked those present to pull up the document in our Facebook group to read along with me, I was shocked to find out the document was missing!

“The enemy must be in our midst… It seems we are under attack!” I said.  I’ve had the Holy Spirit send me interesting messages and confirmation on my computer before… (See that story, CLICK HERE) the Holy Spirit brought me up short and I amended my declaration. “we need to pray for wisdom and determine who is behind this.”

In my head I thought, “If this is you, Holy Spirit, then the person who deleted this file should step forward when I post about it being missing…” If this was a malicious attack, the person would hide. God works in the open, so if this was Him, there would be truth and honesty. The group prayed in agreement for God to give wisdom concerning this matter.

Dangers of Wrong Alignment

Dangers of Wrong Agreement with Q & A

We received an email asking if attending churches that were coming under correction would cause you to lose the anointing as well. My answer was simple: The Lord hasn’t told me directly, however His Word states:

If there come any to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:10-11 AKJV)

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught], do not receive him [do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him] into [your] house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement. (2 John 1:10-11 AMPC)

This seems to say that if we support those who are teaching and operating outside the ways of the Lord, then we become guilty by association. It was said about those looking to make a profit off the Gospel but not acknowledging that Jesus actually came in the flesh. I now have confirmation from the Lord that this will be applied to all those who have added to or warped what the Bible says. This is the warning given with the above scripture:

Removing Charges in the Courts of Heaven

 

How to Remove Charges in the CoH

In the Courts of Heaven Academy, you have learned how and when to enter the Courts to receive the charges the enemy has against you so that you can be free of his attacks. After you hear words of accusation from your Counselor, Holy Spirit, you must understand them. 

If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man his uprightness: Then He is gracious to him, and said, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. (Job 33:23-24 AKJV)

When we receive charges from the enemy, we must search out an interpretation of those charges. We must be willing to understand what is against us so that God can deliver us from the destruction of the enemy. This is confirmed in the New Testament:

The Fall of Church Leaders - Confirming Sign

Fall of Church Leaders

At the end of July the Lord sent a dream showing two things:

  1. “You need to turn your back on churches under the influence of Jezebel”
  2. “The waves south of San Francisco will break over the barriers.”

When the waves break over barriers, it is a confirming sign. I sought Him and asked why San Francisco?

Who Should Receive Charges in the Courts of Heaven

 

Receiving Charges

The Courts of Heaven are the highest place of authority over Heaven and Earth. We have access to the throne because of the blood of Jesus. While we are learning God’s ways we can reside before the Throne of Grace where the harshest attacks of the enemy are removed so that we can be free to learn. There are several factors to consider before we enter the Courts of Heaven to receive charges:

  1. Operation with the Spirit
  2. Physical Manifestations
  3. Spiritual Maturity 

For I say, through the grace given to me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 AKJV)
