Avoiding Backlash (Attacks from the Enemy)

VIDEO: Avoiding Backlash 

Any discussion about backlash must begin with understanding Jesus and how He sets us free from sin. Paul describes this when writing to those in Rome:  

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield you your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace. (Romans 6:12-14 AKJV) 

When the Bible mentions that we are “free from sin” it is talking about sin have control over us. Under the Law, the Ten Commandments, a sacrifice had to be made so that we could be free from the consequences of sin. Jesus is our sacrifice, so we no longer have to butcher lambs and calves to pay for our sin. 

What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know you not, that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness? But God be thanked, that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as you have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity to iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness to holiness. (Romans 6:15-19 AKJV) 

When we continue to sin, we are under the power of Satan. We must walk in God’s ways to be free of attacks from the enemy. Paul tells the Romans that they have “infirmity of the flesh” because they have “yielded” their bodies to “uncleanness.” In other words, Satan is allowed to attack our bodies if we continue in sin and to not turn to “righteousness” which means walking in God’s ways.  

Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15 AMP) 

Our Lord paid the price for us to be free. However, we must learn His ways to appropriate all that He has done. If you have not yet studied the Word of God concerning the COH, you can find the free book (very short) Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven at Amazon, iTunes, and our website CoHAcademy.com. 

Backlash is a direct result of our actions and may occur if we are not walking in God’s ways or if we will not submit to Jesus as Lord and go in the direction of our destiny. Jonah is a biblical example of this: It wasn’t a sin to board a ship, but he was running from what God told him to do. Jonah didn’t want to warn the city of Nineveh about God's wrath should they continue in sin because he wanted God to destroy them.  

When the prophet went in the opposite direction of that city, a storm was sent to stop him. If we are refusing to do as God directs us, we are leaving God’s protection and the enemy may come against us. This is one form of backlash that most are aware of.  

It was surprising to discover that backlash: attacks upon our health or emotions, could come after removing charges in the Courts or receiving intercession in prayer. There are many reasons that this may occur. I am aware of some, and I am sure there are more: 

  • Abuse of Authority 
  • Misapplying the Charges 
  • Failure to Confess 
  • Ignoring Court Procedures 
  • Jezebel 

Many people do experience instant relief during or shortly after intercessory prayer or after they visit the COH. Unfortunately, others experience backlash or a quick relapse of the symptoms they were freed from. This is the danger when you receive God’s grace and mercy either through intercession or by entering into the highest place of authority in Heaven and Earth, the CoH. Let’s take a closer look at some of the causes. 

Abuse of Authority 

Unauthorized authority is a way in which we can abuse our authority. We will not discuss why “all authority” has not been given to us. The mentioned accounts are given in greater detail with scriptures to support them in several chapters/classes in the second Courts of Academy Workbook/course: Remaining Free in the Courts of Heaven. It also addresses: 

  • Different types of authority 
  • What authority we have been given 
  • When to use our authority 
  • How we come under attack for trying to use authority that doesn’t belong to us 

A couple of months after I started the Courts of Heaven - Worldwide group on Facebook, our Lord made it crystal clear that not understanding your rightful authority and how to use it may be a cause of backlash. I went before the Judge and got the charge of “abuse of authority” for myself. A few weeks later God miraculously revealed that I had stepped outside my authority when I made declarations in the Courts. This allowed the enemy to place charges against me and once the Judge ruled in Satan’s favor, the enemy had the legal right to attack me with sickness.  

Though the events were unpleasant to go through, they brought a great revelation to our ministry. Direct demonstrations of miraculous proportions have revealed that abuse of authority outside the courts can also bring backlash. If God, as Judge over Heaven and Earth, rules in favor of Satan and allows him or his minions to harass us, then making declarations to overrule the Judge can place us in contempt of court. Outside the courts, it can bring severe backlash. This can be declaring and decreeing for: 

  • Healing 
  • Financial restitution 
  • Rebuking or casting out demons 
  • Breaking a curse that may be attached to charges in the CoH 

You don’t even have to be the one who is doing the declaring. Charges of abuse of authority can also come against you for agreeing with a petitioner or a prayer led by someone else. Think of it this way: If you are driving a car and your passenger robs the gas station where the two of you stop, you are an accomplice to the crime. 

When you are the guide leading a prayer into the COH or intercession outside the Courts, you are responsible for what is said. If you are a seer in the Courts or part of a prayer group, your consequences may be less, but you have also joined in with the inappropriate action. We must learn to follow the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit. He will let us know when it is time to confess that freedom has come. 

Learning about the CoH helps us to continually recognize that it is the highest place of authority. Jesus gave us His name to use and His blood paid the price. However, when we use authority without being guided by the Holy Spirit, we are in rebellion against God’s authority and the COH. Trying to get around them with the name and the blood of Jesus is not acceptable. 

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14 AKJV) 

If we are not being led, then we are jumping out in front of the Holy Spirit. When we are baby Christians, this will often work but only because God gives us grace for a season. In the natural world it may look like this: 

A toddler demands playtime from his parents by saying, “Play! play!” At first, the parents may respond to the cute words of the newly speaking child. 

As the years pass, the child is expected to learn how to ask, “Will you play with me?” 

At full maturity, we are able to recognize when it is the right time for playing and when others are busy and playing is not an option. 

God expects us to learn His ways and grow past the stage of using the name and blood of Jesus for anything and everything. We should learn to hear from the Holy Spirit so that we know when it is appropriate. 

Misapplying the Charges 

The words you receive in the Courts can often have multiple meanings. There are so many events in our lives that it can be hard to pinpoint what the group of words is referring to. When looking at my own charges, I haven’t always gotten it right. 

When we don’t know what the charges mean, we could confess to the wrong action and the charges will remain. Even if we hear “overruled” for some of the charges, there may still be some that remain. If symptoms come up or fail to clear up after a visit to remove charges in the Courts, you should look at the words again and ask the Holy Spirit about where we might have missed something. 

It can help if you talk this out with someone by going over what you think the words could possibly mean. Sometimes the questions that the other person asks will prod you in the right direction. 

As our experience grew in the CoH, the Lord began leading us into a chamber off the main courtroom which He referred to as “private council” more often. In this setting, the Lord will explain where the issue is in a gentler way.  

The Holy Spirit is our Counselor and is with the Lord in the CoH. He knows the charges against us without the need to enter the CoH. Now our team asks the Lord if He wants us in the CoH or if our Counselor will address the issues outside the Courts: this is Intercession Prayer. When charges are given privately the backlash isn’t as great if something is missed because we have not appeared before all those in Heaven to receive them. The enemy has not witnessed the statement of charges and out refusal or inability to turn from the sin, so he cannot ask for additional consequences to come upon us. 

Failure to Confess 

This is a bit different than misapplying the charges. The word “confess” means much more than admitting that you did wrong. The Greek word homologeĊ translated “confess” has a specific definition: to come into complete agreement and see it the way God does; declaring what we know is wrong according to Him. 

When you are trying to remove the charges, your feelings will be transparent to the entire assembly in the Courtroom. The charges against you are sins you have committed. You must see these actions the way God does: Wrong is wrong. There is no room for excuses. You may be guilty of a false confession: 

  • If you don’t really feel that what you did was all that wrong  
  • If you feel like you were justified in your actions because of something that happened to you 

Your feelings are not in agreement with God when making excuses for your bad behavior, your sin. 

There are no reasons, no excuses for your behavior when you are in the Courts. 

To confess your sin you must know that you made the decision to commit the act that was against God’s ways and be sorry for it. Excuses may make the application of the blood of Jesus invalid as you are trying to justify this action yourself. 

We always have a choice. No one can make us sin. In order for the blood of Jesus to cover it, we must first own it and admit that it needs to be covered. The story of Job illustrates this point. Satan was granted the right to test Job and this was Job’s response: 

Even today is my complaint rebellious and bitter; my stroke is heavier than my groaning. Oh, that I knew where I might find Him, that I might come even to His seat! I would lay my cause before Him and fill my mouth with arguments. (Job 23:2-4 AMPC) 

Job wanted to go and argue his cause with God by presenting a case that he was being mistreated. Elihu, the one who spoke rightly about God, first showed what the proper response should have been from Job: 

For has anyone said to God, I have borne my chastisement; I will not offend anymore; Teach me what I do not see [in regard to how I have sinned]; if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more? (Job 34:31-32 AMPC) 

When life goes horribly wrong, these are the steps we should take: 

  • Admit you have been rightly punished (born the chastisement) 
  • Confess that you are turning from sin (you will not offend anymore) 
  • State you will learn God’s ways so that you understand where you have sinned (learn God’s ways) 

Job didn’t do this, he kept insisting that he was righteous and being unfairly punished. God is the Just and Righteous Judge. Who are we to accuse Him of being unfair? As Elihu continues explaining we see what those actions look like to God: 

For he adds rebellion [in his unsubmissive, defiant attitude toward God] to his unacknowledged sin; he claps his hands [in open mockery and contempt of God] among us, and he multiplies his words of accusation against God. (Job 34:37 AMPC) 

We cannot “prepare” a case for the Courts of Heaven showing that God is wrong for allowing an attack upon us. We must be prepared to find out what sin is allowing the attack to happen and turn from that sin. Praise God that the blood of Jesus has paid the price for that sin when it is found and turned away from! 

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8 ESV) 

God knows what is going on in your life. Inside or outside of the CoH, if you request prayer but there is known sin in your life, do not expect to get a breakthrough! 

Backlash and Testing 

The enemy was allowed in Job’s life for a season. Was this testing or backlash? The difference between the two is simple: 

  • Backlash is because we have sinned allowing the enemy to create an open door for him to attack us. 
    • It is often sudden and without warning. 
    • We must find the sin and turn away from it. 
  • Testing is an opportunity not to sin. We must hold on to what we know about God. 
    • Testing will happen over and over again until we pass the test. 

Job experienced loss and pain to test his love for God. Would he curse God? Would he still love God even when he was afflicted? Job didn’t totally pass the test, he accused God of being unjust. This was a sin and because of it the situation got worse. 

Job did not completely fail because he didn’t curse God. But he didn’t pass either. Once Elihu spoke rightly, then Job realized where he had gone wrong. He repented and God showed up. 

If you have been complaining about an attack of the enemy, then you are as guilty as Job. You will need to confess and repent for rebelling against God’s authority so that He will move back into your life. When we go to the Courts of Heaven, and if we do any of the following, we will also be guilty of Job’s mistake: 

  • Make excuses for our behavior 
  • Attack the enemy who may have a right to attack us 
  • Attack others whom God may be using to bring correction 

If you have done any of these, you will need to confess that you have rebelled against God’s authority. Instead, you need to do as Elihu suggested: 

  • Admit you have been rightly punished (born the chastisement) 
  • Confess that you are turning from sin (you will not offend anymore) 
  • State you will learn God’s ways so you know where you have sinned (learn God’s ways) 

This is the way to remove both backlash or consequences for failing a test. 

Ignoring Court Procedures 

Once you appear in the Courts of Heaven, you are making it known that you are aware of two things: 

  • The Courts of Heaven are the highest place of authority. 
  • The enemy may have legal rights obtained by placing charges upon us 

After clearing charges in the Courts of Heaven, you cannot go back to binding and rebuking without waiting for the Holy Spirit to let you know that the enemy is acting outside his authority. If you do this, then you are relying on a “formula” created by man instead of the Holy Spirit.  

Our Counselor knows what is happening in the Courts of Heaven and will tell you with great strength if you are to bind, rebuke, or declare healing. If you do not get a strong leading but continue to proceed according to the way you have always done things, then you risk having charges placed on you in the CoH. The scriptures to support this are in the third Academy workbook: Receiving Charges in the Courts of Heaven

Jezebel 

Listen carefully, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her [I will bring] into great anguish, unless they repent of her deeds. (Revelation 2:22 AMP) 

If you are suffering from pain or sickness that isn’t resolved by repeated trips to the Courts of Heaven, you may have allowed Jezebel a place in your life. The worst part about this demonic attack is that it is so very hard to spot, especially within ourselves.  

This is one attack that no one can help you clear in the Courts. You must take care of this by repenting for sins that have given her a place in your life and by revoking any access you have given her. 

An entire chapter in the second COH Academy Workbook/course: Remaining Free in the Courts of Heaven contains information regarding Jezebel. We have had many testimonies of people being healed through applying what they learn in the Academy class on which this chapter is based. 

Keep Going 

For this reason, many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. (1 Corinthians 11:30-31 NKJV) 

This verse is in the New Testament after Jesus left. He came so that grace could be shown, but that doesn’t mean that God is not Judge. We still have an adversary:  

...for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out! (Revelation 12:10 AMPC) 

Satan isn’t upon this Earth yet, so right now he is in Heaven bringing charges against us day and night. We need to continually check ourselves against the Word of God. Are we walking according to God’s ways? Having fellowship with other Christians can be instrumental in remaining free. If you don’t have any Christian friends who are determined to walk the narrow path of righteousness, we hope you will consider fellowshipping with us online at Agape-CF.org 

Leaders and Backlash 

If you choose to guide others in the Courts of Heaven, you run the risk of getting a unique form of backlash. If you know the danger, it can often be avoided. If you are considering guiding others in court visits, remember the Lord said it is the same as being an elder. Here are the attributes the Bible says one should have: 

  • Blameless, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality 
  • Be temperate; avoid too much wine or liquor 
  • Not greedy for material gain (not focused on money)  
  • Able to teach God’s ways 
  • Patient, not a brawler, not covetous 
  • Manage children and personal finances responsibly 
  • Not a novice, be able to endure a test of time 
  • Be self-controlled, steady, and trustworthy in all things; avoid gossip or flighty behavior 
  • Have one spouse 

Guides must first be tested and found to be blameless and beyond reproach [in their Christian lives] (1 Timothy 3:8-12). Before you begin guiding others in Court visits, either with Agape Christian Fellowship or on your own, you should look at the list and make sure you are ready for the responsibility that comes with this position in the Kingdom of Heaven. 

A guide in the Courts has the responsibility of leading the prayer. This is much more than an intercessor. You may be called upon by the Holy Spirit to bring correction. 

Not many [of you] should become teachers (self-constituted censors and reprovers of others), my brethren, for you know that we [teachers] will be judged by a higher standard and with greater severity [than other people; thus we assume the greater accountability and the more condemnation]. (James 3:1 AMPC) 

When you lead visits to the Courts you are bringing corrections and teachings to others. Consequences for sin may be harsher. This is a job for a mature, well-grounded Christian who is ready to run to the Lord at the first sign of an attack of the enemy. These principles apply to all leaders in the Body of Christ, including prayer leaders, pastors, or worship leaders. 

A recent visit to the Courts of Heaven revealed several key factors about operating in the fullness of what Jesus had provided for us: 

  • Freedom and healing, both physical and emotional, can come quickly. 
  • The Courts of Heaven is not a “one and done” matter. 
    • Understanding and operating in the Courts is a lifestyle. 
  • Listening to the Holy Spirit in the Courts is crucial. 
  • Seasoned Christians can experience backlash as they operate in the Courts. 

Understanding the Courts should be brought into our prayer life as we consider the Courts of Heaven as a possible tool to use when difficulties arise. Additional visits to the Courts of Heaven may be necessary throughout our lifetime. 

Leaders are not exempt from this, in fact, it is quite the opposite. Leaning upon what you now know about the Courts is vital for those who are helping others obtain all Jesus has done for them. There are basic procedures that God expects us to know; following the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit is vital in order to receive victory through the sacrifice of Jesus. A petitioner, let’s call her Rahab, has graciously agreed to allow me to share the details of her visit so you can clearly see the process in action. 

Rahab had been through the Court process, yet she still felt something was blocking her, so she signed up for another visit to receive additional charges. Her sister, let’s call her Yvonne, also needed a visit and was scheduled right after her sister Rahab. They were to be present at each other’s visits. 

We began the process by asking for charges. Two discouraging visions were received, which was a heads up that this would be a rough visit. A couple of the words revealed a root of bitterness and unforgiveness, in addition to other words that revealed a timeframe such as, yesterday and the day before. This meant there was something in Rahab’s long past that caused a root of bitterness resulting from unforgiveness. 

The Holy Spirit brought thoughts of past trauma to Rahab. She submitted her will to the Holy Spirit by confessing to those present all things from her past she had never fully expressed before: 

Rahab had been sexually attacked by several men when she was between the ages of 11 and 12. While staying with her friend, her friend’s father visited her room at night to molest her. When she told her own father about it, he told her to keep her mouth shut and endure it. 

Rahab sobbed as she recounted the incident, revealing a root that was still buried. One of the Seers suggested she needed to declare her forgiveness of these men. After she did this, I gave instructions that surprised me because it was not something that I would think of. The Holy Spirit prompted me to say, “Now, Rahab, ask the Father to forgive these men and if they are no longer in this world, then to forgive their children.” 

The heart of Rahab was clear for everyone to see as she did this, meaning every word. The charges were dismissed, and Rahab received her first visit to the Secret Place, right then and there! She told us, “I saw myself as a little girl, climbing onto Abba’s lap. He pulled a blanket over me…” 

One of the Seers verified the vision by declaring what she saw. The seer stated, “I saw a warm blanket cover you…” 

I explained what the Holy Spirit was bringing to my heart, “God wants you to call upon Him as Abba and remember this vision each night before you sleep. He will bring you to the Secret Place where you will experience the sweetest sleep you have ever known.” 

Rahab began to cry once more, “You have no idea what this means to me. I have suffered from insomnia all my life. I wake up, afraid someone will assault me while I sleep.” 

We finished the appointment with much rejoicing. 

If you have read Workbook 3 in the Academy series, you know that what happened here was a “soul healing.” We now have appointments that don’t require you to go to the Courts of Heaven before God as Judge, instead, the Holy Spirit brings healing from past wounds. It is quite beautiful to see the deliverance and healing these appointments bring. Once you have completed the classes in the free online Courts of Heaven Academy, you are eligible for these appointments. 

Next, we placed her sister Yvonne before the Judge. As we reviewed the charges, I heard this loud rumbling sound. As it got louder, I realized it was snoring! Booming laughter from our group erupted because Rahab was in a deep sleep. We excused her from the meeting and the words from the Holy Spirit were fulfilled: She had the deepest, most wonderful sleep that night. 

While reviewing Yvonne’s charges, one of our team members kept posting in the chat, “I’m repenting for that, too, and pleading the blood!” The interpretation for many of the words for Yvonne had an effect on the hearts of the team members because some of the charges were something that they had been guilty of in the past. 

Yvonne joked, “My appointment is doing double duty!” she said, which got a big laugh from all team members. 

One of our helpers in the Courts of Heaven learned early on that when you hear other people’s charges in the Courts, the Holy Spirit may remind you that you, too, are guilty of that same sin. If this occurs and you don’t repent, you can get backlash as Satan places charges on you the next day because the truth about your life is revealed to him as you stand in the Courts. If you repent and plead the blood as things are revealed, there is nothing left for Satan to use as evidence against you in the CoH. 

That night I didn’t sleep well. The Lord was speaking to me about reorganizing the ministry and thoughts of my past kept playing through my mind: 

My uncle, who at the time was about thirty years old, had been caught in my stepsister’s bedroom when she was twelve. My father, her stepdad, said it was her fault, and that she had seduced him. 

I found out about this incident several years later and didn’t see him again until I was seventeen years old. At a family barbecue, my uncle approached me, as friendly as ever. I looked at him straight in the eyes and said, “I have spoken to my sister. I know what you did. Don’t you ever speak to me again.” 

I turned on my heels and walked away. As it turned out, my uncle died about ten years ago and we never spoke again. 

Although the Holy Spirit kept me awake, reminding me of this, I didn’t connect the matter with the possibility of charges coming against me. The next morning, I woke up with definite signs of backlash: 

  • My computer wouldn’t let me do my morning prayers, a live broadcast on Facebook. 
  • Pressure surrounded my head like it was in a vise. 
  • It felt something like a balloon expanding in my ear canals. 

Backlash can appear in unique forms; these were just the symptoms this time. I knew it was backlash because I had a busy day, and the more I went to the Courts to help others, the worse it got. I struggled to hear from the Holy Spirit which is usually very easy. 

With only an hour in between appointments, there was no time to seek the cause. My head was so foggy, I couldn’t think of what it was. During a visit, I asked for a private sidebar with my Counselor. “Holy Spirit,” I begged, “What is going on with my head and my ears?” 

I saw a picture of myself with a black bag over my head. When it was removed, there was a blob with four tentacles on top of my head. Two of the arms held it in place, the other two were in my ears. This was why my head felt so bad, there was a demon on my head! 

Later that night as I crawled into bed, I told my husband about that difficult trip to the Courts and how it affected me afterward. Instantly, I knew what the issue was, as the Holy Spirit convicted my heart: I hadn’t forgiven my father or my uncle, yet I told Rahab to do so. This is where the charges were coming from. 

The Holy Spirit had also given me a warning dream the night before which I now considered: 

There was a scholarship that would take care of all my needs, but I had to pass a test first. I wasn’t worried - the test was easy. The results came in, I had failed, scoring 24%! I knew something was wrong. 

Looking at the test, I saw I was one question off for most of my answers. I had the first twenty-four questions right, but all the rest of the questions were wrong. I had skipped one of the questions, making the rest wrong after it.  

I had asked the Holy Spirit what I had missed that was causing me to fail but had heard nothing. I knew it was something that was in the foundational teachings of God because of the metaphorical meaning in the number 24: 

  • 2 - multiplication that can bring maturity 
  • 12 - the government of God 

I had overlooked that part of my past (the missing question) and now that the enemy had spotted it when I was in the Courts, it would hinder me from receiving from God until I corrected it. 

Now I knew what this dream was about: Forgiveness is the one thing that Jesus tells us that we must do so that His goodness can come upon us. I went to the Courts as soon as I understood what was against me. Just as I had advised Rahab, I announced my forgiveness and asked the Judge to forgive those men and their ancestors. When I asked for the charges to be dismissed, I asked for justice to come and for God to restore more than what had been taken, for Him to increase the gifts the enemy was trying to hinder. Immediately the pressure in my head went away. The next morning, I woke refreshed, feeling the strong presence of my Friend, the Holy Spirit, surrounding me once more.  

The Courts of Heaven is not a “one-and-done” situation. As a seasoned Christian, you may hear the Judge say, “I have nothing against this one,” in a visit to the Courts. Any time, if you begin operating apart from God, the enemy may place charges against you; especially if you have operated in the CoH to help others. Satan and his minions are looking for a reason to hinder you and keep you from helping others. 

“But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause, many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.” (1 Corinthians 11:28-31 AKJV) 

We must continually look at our lives and judge ourselves, confessing and turning from sin. This alone will let us escape judgments from Heaven while on this earth. 

Yes, healing, both emotional and physical, can come through the Courts. However, that is not the purpose of Heaven’s legal system. When we enter the Courts, it is the highest place of authority in all Heaven and Earth. We can hear what is against us to remove all that may be blocking us from a close relationship with our Father in Heaven so that we can achieve the divine destiny to which He calls us.

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two


Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:


  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 1

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 2

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.

Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 3


Our rights to appear in the Courts of Heaven have been greatly undervalued. The missing key to our authority is here. Jesus has provided the access and the Bible shows us the court procedures. When we learn to operate in our rightful place as children of the Most High, the enemy will be defeated and we will see the victory we have prayed for.

The death of Jesus freed us from the curse of the law. However, we must declare this freedom just as we must make a declaration for our salvation.

  • Can curses be passed to our children?
  • What are signs of a curse?
  • How do you get rid of one?

Every answer is backed by scripture. Come and find out how easy it is to be free!

Roadmap to Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 4



As I meditated and sought the Lord, a vision overcame me. A “Roadmap to Heaven” was deposited into my soul. We are entering a season of unparalleled access to Heaven. Jesus is calling all who are His to visit with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High.

  • What is the Secret Place?
  • How do we enter?
  • What will we find there?

The Bible holds the answers, the mystery has been revealed. As you use the map given in this book to journey to the Secret Place, discover your destiny and find the gifts the Holy Spirit will bring along the way.
