Preparing your Mind for the Courts of Heaven

My definition of relaxation has changed since beginning the Courts of Heaven - Worldwide group and the Tea & Coffee meetings. I used to love to shop. Searching for rock-bottom bargains was a fun way to spend an afternoon. Today I took my teen daughter and my niece to the mall and just wanted a place to relax before I have to drive nearly 1000 miles back home. 

The Holy Spirit led me straight to a little shop that was in a dead-end which was under construction. The massage studio was clean and looked very nice; the bed was too inviting to resist. As the massage began I noticed the lyrics to the gentle music were old gospel songs turned into lullabies. 

For the first twenty minutes or so I focused and chatted with the members of the Trinity. I have greatly missed my time in the Courts during this long family trip, so I entered though I spoke no words. I figured that Jesus only shouted for Lazarus so the crowd would know that He was a messenger from God, that I could enter the Courts without speaking a word. I do, however, find it easier to stay focused when I am speaking out loud. 

In my thoughts, I called upon my Heavenly Father as Judge and took my seat as a child of the Most High and a citizen of Heaven. I could see clearly the assembly gathered in a stadium like setting as a chair flew in and came up behind me. I didn’t have an agenda, I just wanted to see my Father and learn more about the Courts. 

“Mighty Judge,” I said, “I want to experience your Court in truth.” I hopped down from my chair as I approached Him. “I give to You my imagination, my mind, and all my thoughts and senses. Let them be used for your purposes only. Let me see and hear only what is true and real. I don’t want to see or hear anything that is not from You, no human will or manipulation from the enemy.” 

Stepping forward, I placed a yellow swirling bundle before the Judge. Jesus came in from the right side of the Judge, quickly taking possession of this yellow mass. He picked pieces off the edges and pulled dark threads from the glowing ball, the size of a basketball. In His hand a bright yellow-white spark about 2-3 inches in diameter appeared. The Lord placed the spark in the yellow glowing ball which expanded with a whitish corona. 

Unexpectedly, Jesus strode toward me with long quick strides. He placed the glowing mass on my head like a crown. I hadn’t expected to receive it back, much less with a new package. I believe this was the “mind of Christ” which has now been given to me. It is available for anyone who is willing to turn their entire mental state over to God. 

For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart. (1 Corinthians 2:16)

I gazed around me with new eyes and the “Our Father” prayer came to mind. I spoke what I received with the minor alterations suggested by the Holy Spirit from the most well known prayer in the Word of God:

Mighty Judge, let your name be displayed greatly over all of Heaven and Earth as your will is done, on Earth as it is done here in Heaven. Give me this day my daily bread and forgive me of any trespasses as I forgive those who trespass against me. Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from the enemy, and display your kingdom and power and glory for all the world to see! 

I continued, making my request at the urging of the Holy Spirit, “I know healing is your will, for your Son took stripes so all may be healed. Show me, Mighty Judge, how to bring healing and freedom from the evil one to Earth.” I submitted myself to the Court, going down to my knees and placing my forehead on the floor. “I await your decree, Mighty Judge.” I didn’t know if I would receive an answer today or in weeks or months, but I was content to wait while I relaxed on the table. 

The Judge’s voice boomed in my mind, “Come forward.” 

Obediently I stepped up to the Judge's podium. A brilliant sparkling gold trimmed scroll was handed down. When I opened it up, two large words were easy to read, “Healing & Freedom.” 

“Mighty Judge, how do I use this? I don’t want to do anything that is not aligned with this Court.” I asked. A vision came of bringing the scroll into my body. 

As I did this I heard the soft voice of the councilor, “When it is time, you will know.” I accepted this and bowed to the Judge. From my past experience with Daddy in the Secret Place, I knew it was dangerous to try push forward to a destination God has planned. (Read that story here)

A few things to note about this experience: 
  • I didn’t make a long petition or demand.
  • I submitted my will to God’s will.
  • I didn’t ask for a scroll.
It is a trust thing. God knows what we need. If we need a scroll, trust He will give it to us. Petitioning the Courts seems fancy, but it is just presenting God’s word to Him and asking for a judgment. 

I hope these things/experiences encourage you to continue seeking God and learning about the Courts of Heaven. You can find out more about the Courts in the free book “Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven” or at my Facebook Group:

in the Courts of Heaven

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.

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.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

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.
