The Blood Speaks!
Both the Old and New Testament agree that innocent blood that has been spilled can “cry out” for justice and even vengeance.
And to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance] (Hebrews 12:24 AMCP)
And [the Lord] said, What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground. (Genesis 4:10 AMPC)
Abel’s blood had to cry out from the ground, and God showed up. Not only did He talk to Cain, but He also enacted the vengeance for which the blood cried out. Jesus is in Heaven at the right hand of the Father. His blood is crying out for us in the Courts of Heaven. We need to come into agreement with that testimony:
By the testimony of two or three witnesses must any charge and every accusing statement be sustained and confirmed. (2 Corinthians 13:1 AKJV)
“Sustained” is a term we use in Court that means to confirm the justice and validity of the allegations. By asking the blood to speak for us, we are declaring that Jesus paid the price, and we are coming into agreement with that statement.
Even with this evidence, I was hesitant to dive into this new revelation. We have found that if people come to the Courts of Heaven and don’t really turn from their sin, there is awful backlash; the enemy attacks them with pain, sickness, or family troubles. If we use the blood to dismiss sins we aren’t aware of, it may be much harder to turn from them. As a result, we could be on the receiving end of retaliation from the enemy, and the situation may be much worse.
Later we discovered that as long as we followed the example in Daniel 9 and learned God’s ways, implementing them in our lives, He would extend grace, and healing and deliverance would remain. However, at this time, we needed to verify that the application of the blood of Jesus would be effective. I called upon my team at the Courts of Heaven Academy - Worldwide group. We have many seers in our team, and I wanted to see if they would be willing to test this out with me. In fact, consistently over the several weeks that followed:
- The power of the Holy Spirit was magnified. Some people’s faces glowed with the energy of God as curses and charges were removed.
- We took people who had received thirty or more charges back into the Courts of Heaven. We brought them forward and asked the blood to testify, and then we asked if there were any charges left. In each case, the number of charges was reduced by twenty to forty accusations!
This is a powerful thing our Lord has done. We need to use His sacrifice, His blood, to the fullest effect. The most effective way to do this is to use God’s Word and agree with what He has said:
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”). (Galatians 3:13 AKJV)
This shows us two things:
The word “curse” is singular. The single curse was that you went to Hell for violating any part of the Law. This is what taking Jesus as Lord has redeemed us from. We no longer go to Hell for violating even a tiny part of the Law as the Hebrew people did.
Jesus also paid the price for us to be free from the curses of our ancestors by hanging on the cross. Nowhere in scripture does it say this happens automatically. A payment is something that has to be appropriated. We must look at the way God operates to understand how to accept and benefit from what our Lord has done.
In Deuteronomy 5, it says that the sins of our fathers can be passed down to four generations creating a generational curse. Daniel gives us an example, showing that we can confess for the sins of the past to gain mercy from God.
O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name... O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. (Daniel 9:4-6 and 8 NKJV)
Here are the key components to this prayer:
- Come before God in praise and worship (great and awesome).
- Remind Him of His promises (covenants).
- Call out for His mercy.
- Confess the sins of our ancestors (our fathers).
When we approach God as Judge, we can show that we have studied His Word by claiming our rightful place as children of the Most High and citizens of Heaven. Next, when we confess the sins of our ancestors, we show that we know they were in the wrong. Then we ask the blood of Jesus to testify on our behalf. Stating what the New Testament says, making the most out of the sacrifice of Jesus is the highest form of praise to God because we are honoring what He has said. Up to this point, you should not be:
- Stating reasons for the sin (excuses)
- Demanding or asking for anything
This is a time to be humble before the Judge and repent. After this, we follow Court procedures and ask for charges against us to be dismissed. ONLY AFTER you hear a verdict of “overruled,” “overturned,” or some similar phrase of dismissal do you ask the Judge for justice. This justice is placing your faith in God that He is fair and righteous and knows what is due. If at any time the Holy Spirit urges you to say anything else or if you receive a vision, you should act on this. This is not a “formula.” Rather it is a guide according to the process outlined in the Bible. Jesus is our Advocate, our Leader; He should be followed above all else!
Jesus died to set us free; freedom always comes when you are persistent in pursuing Him and learning His ways, applying them to your life.
And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? (Luke 18:7 AMPC)
We are the body of Christ. Ideally, a body and its parts work together. Can the hand properly function without being attached to and dependent on the arm? Without the support of the lungs, how could we speak? After you have learned about the Courts, if you are still under an attack from the enemy, then our team can inquire if it is time to enter the CoH or if the Holy Spirit, your Counselor, would like to explain what is against you.
Scrolls and Books in the CoH
There is much talk about scrolls, books, and other items in the Courts. Should we be asking for these in order to get results from the Just and Righteous Judge? We must hold to the Word of God and do what the Lord tells us to do.
And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. (Ezekiel 2:9-10 KJV)
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. (Ezekiel 3:1-3 KJV)
God gave scrolls to prophets a few times in the Bible. They were sometimes commanded to eat them and then prophesy as with Ezekiel and John in Revelation 10.. In other times, such as in Zechariah 5, the scrolls brought curses upon the land. In Revelation 5, God had a scroll that needed to be opened by someone with special authority:
And I saw a strong angel announcing in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll? And [who is entitled and deserves and is morally fit] to break its seals?” And no one in Heaven or on Earth or under the Earth [in the realm of the dead, Hades] was able to open the scroll or to take a [single] look at its contents. And I wept audibly and bitterly because no one was found fit to open the scroll or to inspect it.
Then one of the elders [of the Heavenly Sanhedrin] said to me, “Stop weeping! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root (Source) of David, has won (has overcome and conquered)! He can open the scroll and break its seven seals!” (Revelation 5:2-5 AMPC)
The seals of Revelation have to be broken before the trumpets can announce the cup of wrath that will be poured out. Only one person is qualified, Jesus. He lived the perfect life of obedience to God and was obedient even unto death. Because of this, He has been given all authority in Heaven and Earth. This enables Him to open the scroll that will begin the time of Tribulation.
There are also books in Heaven, but often the words “books” and “scrolls” are frequently used interchangeably.
Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:7-8 KJV)
The Hebrew word translated as “book” is sēp̄er (say’-fer) which can be used for scroll, book, or any other type of written document. However this word is translated, every time a scroll or book from Heaven is mentioned, there is a common denominator: God or one of His messengers give the scroll as they see fit. There is no example in the Bible of someone asking for a scroll.
Would you presume to demand a special writ of authority from the leader of your nation? Why would you presume to ask God for one? The CoH is not like McDonalds where you place your order and God fulfills your requests. God is Sovereign. He is the Judge and knows what you need. Trust that He will equip you for the work of His Kingdom.
The Holy Spirit is your Counselor.
- If something needs to be said, He will tell you what it is.
- If you receive a scroll, read it out loud so that God’s judgment is proclaimed upon the Earth.
It is as simple as that. Rest in the hands of Jesus, your Advocate and the Holy Spirit, your Counselor.
Court of Scribes
While there is ample proof of the CoH within the scriptures, I see no mention of this place in the Bible. Perhaps if you add much to what is said, you can infer that such a place exists, and perhaps it does. However, I don’t believe we need to be concerned about it. Around the time I learned about this teaching, I was given a dream from God:
I was in a busy metropolis. Many people greeted us as we traveled to a valley. In the valley, there was a reflection of the moon. The crescent shape had a cartoon face projected upon it.
Another sister came in and started talking about the valley with the moon. “Did you hear about that place? They have all this cool stuff.”
I replied hesitantly, “Ah, I’d be careful with what they are doing. I’m not so sure it is all real.”
Excitedly, she reassured me, “Oh no, of course it is. Don’t you see it? Of course it is real!”
My sister left and I wandered along until I arrived at the house that was on the side of the mountain above the valley. Upon entering the house, I addressed the occupants. “I know you have a projector that you are using to add to the reflection of the moon so the face can be more clearly seen. Where is it?”
Unabashed, the woman replied, “Oh yes, we have it over here. We just want people to be able to understand it better, to be clear about what they are seeing.”
I proclaimed, “No! You don’t need to do that. What you are doing is adding to the TRUE moon, which is wrong.” I left and then warned my sister about it.
The sun is the Son of God. The moon is the Church which reflects the Son which should be seen upon this Earth. Light from the sun is revealing something from the sun to the moon. The reflection can be seen as a revelation of God, because light of the sun is revealing something from the sun to the moon. God made it very clear that we do not need to add anything to His revelation to make it more understandable. If it isn’t in the Word of God in multiple scriptures, we do not need to add information about it to help others see it clearly.
We know that God is Judge, Jesus is our Advocate, and the Holy Spirit is our Counselor. Anything else we need to know or do, our Counselor will make it clear to us at that time. We don't need to operate anywhere else.
As I prepared for a fellowship meeting, I had a vision of what has occurred in Heaven with the blood of Jesus:
Jesus walked into the Throne room where God resides. He carried a bowl of His blood with Him. An ornate chair sat beside God with angels stationed beside it. Jesus sprinkled the chair with His blood. From this place, waves of energy were released. I could feel those waves of energy hit me as I watched them flow outward.
The Throne Room of God is the “Holy of Holies.” The book of Hebrews speaks about this:
Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost thus signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: (Hebrews 9:6-8 AKJV)
But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:11-14 AKJV)
What was done in the Old Testament with the Hebrew priests was but a foreshadow of what our Lord would do. He is the only Begotten Son of God who lived a perfect life. Then, having walked perfectly before God, Jesus gave that life for us as a sacrifice for our sins.
Therefore He is the Mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you.” And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 9:15-22 ESV)
All things were purged from sin with blood when they were dedicated to God. The blood of Jesus is what purifies us from sin when we dedicate our lives to God.
It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest enters into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world has He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin to salvation. (Hebrews 9:23-28 AKJV)
Because the blood of Jesus is perfect, He only needed to offer it once. It is now in Heaven as the eternal sacrifice for all sin. We can approach God in the “Holy of Holies” because our High Priest, Jesus has made the way. He is the way, the truth, and life (John 14:6) for those who will seek Him.
This is what the Lord wants us to focus on. Knowing about the CoH can help us understand how and when to appropriate the greatest gift, His blood. But we should never forget that seeking God, seeking our High Priest in the Holy of Holies has been paid for by His sacrifice! That should always be our goal: to draw close to God and be in His presence.
When we first began going into the CoH in 2018, the Lord said it was a time of training. I thought it meant we were learning how to operate in the Courts to obtain victory. It is now abundantly clear that by learning about the Courts, we know how to receive from our Lord through the mercy of His blood. Mercy is released from Heaven every time you cry out for mercy and come into agreement with what the blood of Jesus is saying.
God is not mocked, what you sow, you shall reap (John 6:47-59). If you ask for mercy but keep operating in sin, the mercy you seek will not come. You must be willing to learn God’s ways, apply them to your life, and do the job your Lord has for you. This is when your cry for mercy will bring results.
The new covenant with our Lord is based on mercy. We must forgive, then we are forgiven (Matthew 6:12). Are you willing to forgive? Without the other person even knowing what they have done? Is this the way you want to be forgiven?
Ask now, don’t wait. Let God know that:
- You are willing to forgive all those who have wronged you.
- You are willing to learn the ways of God and walk in them.
- You are willing to work for your Lord.
If you said yes to all of these, say them outloud. Then come into agreement with the cry of the blood: ask for mercy!

Believers' Boot Camp series
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
Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?
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.
