Why Must We Go to the Courts Of Heaven

Why we Go to the COH Meeting

The most common question I get from Christians when I speak about the Courts of Heaven is “Why do we have to go to the Courts? Didn’t Jesus’ blood take care of all that?” Yes, it is the blood of Jesus that blots out our sin, but we must appropriate it. Jesus paid the price so that we can go boldly before the throne… but we must go! 

Demons know that Jesus is the Son of God, but they don’t get to go to Heaven. Only those who confess that He is Lord, go to Heaven. We have a part to play if we are to receive the freedom that Jesus paid such a high price for! 

We know from reading the New Testament that Satan is in the Courts placing charges against us day and night. (Revelation 12:10 ) But why do we have to go there if Jesus is at the right hand of the Father? Can’t He take care of it for us? Actually, it takes two to establish a thing as fact:

“By the mouth of two or three witnesses a thing shall be established” 2 Corinthians. 13:1

How about the Holy Spirit? Can He be the second witness? There must be two human witnesses who have seen what is on this Earth to give testimony and get cases against us overruled. We have two examples in the Bible that show us that isn’t the way God works:
  1. Do you remember the story about Abraham and Lot in Sodom? The Lord came to Abraham and told him that He is sending two angels in the form of men to Sodom to see if things were as bad as He had heard. The Lord needed two witnesses to the sin: the two angels with Him. (Genesis 18)
  2. Before God will pour out judgment in the Tribulation, Jesus will empower two witnesses to go and give testimony concerning each city on Earth. (Revelation 11)
These are two examples of God acting as Judge. In both cases He withholds judgement until two witnesses in human form give testimony. If Satan has a judgement against someone, there needs to be two human witnesses that were on this Earth to get that judgment overruled. The blood was spilled on this Earth and can be called as one witness, but you need to be there to be the second witness!

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.
