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, He 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 face 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, 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!
If you have been to the Courts and haven’t seen results, it is because there is something you haven’t addressed. Jesus died to set us free; freedom always comes when you are persistent in the Courts.
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? If you aren’t seeing results in the Courts of Heaven you may discover the reason by going through the Courts of Heaven Academy on our website Agape-CF.org.
Going into the Courts of Heaven for the first time can feel like a challenge... we would be happy to help you too!

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.
