The Courts of Heaven, the Oil, and Prayer

Should we receive prayer from others while we are operating in the Courts of Heaven? How about the seemingly endless flow of oil coming miraculously from a Bible? The answer to both of these questions is much the same and both were demonstrated to us in the very same week!

When you begin operating in the Courts of Heaven, you are declaring to the entire spirit realm, the Kingdom of God, that you are now aware that the enemy may have a legal right to operate in a person’s life: Even a Christian. Jesus paid the price for our sins, so we don’t go to Hell for them, but while we are still on Earth, our sins can give the enemy authority over us in some ways. The Apostle Paul speaks about this:
Do you not know that when you continually offer yourselves to someone to do his will, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey, either [slaves] of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (right standing with God)? (Romans 6:16)

When we commit sins on this Earth, we are obeying Satan and his minions. This gives them authority over us. A few things they can interfere with are:
  • Our finances
  • Our health
  • Our relationships
  • Our spiritual gifts
If you are being hindered in any of these ways, there may be charges against you in the Courts of Heaven which are giving the enemy access to you. In order to remove that access, we must confess our sins: come into agreement with God that it is wrong and like a piece of dog poo, we don’t want to ever touch it again. When we really see it the way God does, we repent, meaning that we turn from it. These are the steps that Paul gives in order that the Blood of Jesus can blot out our sins from all records in Heaven and Earth.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
This is the way to remove the access of the enemy for mature believers. However it isn’t the only way to be free. Anointed men and women of God can pray and many times the Name of Jesus can break the power of the enemy allowing God to restore health to His people. However, recent studies show that even in the case of Kathryn Kuhlman, 90% of the people healed, rising miraculously out of wheelchairs and such, lost their healing. Why is this?

Let’s look at what our Lord did when He was here on this Earth. After He healed the man at the pool of Bethesda, He said,
 "See, you have been made well. Stop sinning, or something worse may happen to you." (John 5:14)
This was not an isolated incident. He said the same thing to the woman caught in the act of adultery. He told her to stop sinning. The enemy’s access was taken away by the Lord, but He knew the people who were in danger of walking into that sin again.

Now days, we are so far removed from God, that most of us do not know when we are in sin. That is why we go to the Courts, to find out where we have missed it! If you begin visiting the Courts and especially if you have received charges, then you will need to turn from that sin, even if an anointed minister prays for you and you are healed. If you have ordered some of the oil that is flowing from the Bible, if you try and use that to get around the charges, no good will come of that either.

God has demonstrated this for us with two witnesses.

An Anointed Prayer for Healing

One of our petitioners, let’s call her Angela, for the Courts of Heaven didn’t show up for her appointment. More than a week later she came to our Agape Fellowship meeting and asked for prayer because she had a sore throat and a cough that was just getting worse. Recognizing her name, I asked if she was in a process for the Courts. Our conversation went something like this:

“I received charges, then I went to a conference where an anointed man of God called me up to pray for me. I fell under the power of the Holy Spirit and was healed,” She explained.

“So this is why you didn’t come to your appointment?” I asked.

“One of them, yes.”

“Are you still healed?” The Holy Spirit prompted me to ask.

“No,” Angela admitted, “It has come back.”

I could literally see a scene playing out in my mind: A demon stood before God as Judge, entering his charge, “You see, Judge, she used the Name to get rid of me, but still continues in her sin. Now I want my rights back, plus I want to afflict her with a cold!”

Angela hadn't taken time to understand the charges that she requested. Instead, she accepted the prayer of faith which used the Name of Jesus to assert His authority. This worked for a while, but soon the demon looked to have his place back. This is why Jesus warned people to stop sinning!

A prayer of faith may set us free, but in order to stay free, we need to draw close to God and learn His ways. This will keep us from sinning! The Courts of Heaven is a direct way to find out what the enemy is using against us so we can experience more from God.

The Oil

Another one of our petitioners we were helping in the courts, let’s call her Cheyenne, received her bottle of oil which has been miraculously flowing from the Bible in Georgia, (Read about that CLICK HERE). Her husband has a healing anointing, so he used the oil to pray for her. Although Cheyenne had been through the Courts of Heaven, there was a medical condition which kept reappearing in her life. She had sought God for the answer, but she was still suffering with it.

Quickly Cheyenne developed a cough and sore throat to go along with the known issue. The Holy Spirit pointed out that she was suffering with the same symptoms as the woman who had asked to be prayed for in the Agape Fellowship meeting. Cheyenne asked if her husband praying for her had caused the cough she developed quickly after that.

We sought the answers in the Courts: Was there access granted to the enemy concerning her recurring medical issue? Charges were stated which spoke to Cheyenne. She repented for “abuse of authority,” for trying to remove the enemy without responding to the charges and the cold left!

If you have come into the courts and found the charges of the adversary, you may get grace from the Judge for a while, but eventually you will need to respond to those charges. If you would like help finding out what the enemy has against you, we have trained prayer teams who would be glad to help!

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.
