Our Guide to the Secret Place

Our Guide Meeting

The Holy Spirit asked me to provide an introduction for Him so that He could move into your life in greater measure. He sent a dream a few years back: It was the first dream the Holy Spirit ever interpreted before I even knew it was a gift He gives to people. This dream shows us not only how to get to the Secret Place but also what role the Holy Spirit plays in that trip:

I left an Indian encampment with a minister I was learning from (dark-haired man) and two people I lovingly referred to as “Hippy,” a long-haired man who smoked a pipe with vision causing materials in it and “Linebacker,” a large woman who was bigger than most men. Dark-haired man led us to an old dock with a canoe that had seen better days. He was in the front, followed by Hippy, me, then Linebacker at the end of the boat.

Finding and Closing Spiritual Gates

Closing Gates Meeting with Prayer 
He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalms 91:1)
The opening line to one of the most power-packed prayers in the entire Bible begins by speaking about the Secret Place of God.This is a destination in the spiritual realm where you can be hidden in a private fellowship with God. We are a spirit being in a physical body with a soul (mind, will, and emotions). We can and should connect with our Father, who is a Spirit, in Heaven. The Word also tells us that the Lord is the one who opens the gate (door, portal)  and leads us into these encounters:
I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (John 10:9)
According to the words of our Lord, there is going in and coming out of the Secret Place through Him. This is the right way to enter into the spirit realm. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:17) and He should always be there if we are moving about in the spirit. If we access the realm of the spirit without Him, we may have an open door through which  the enemy can  come in and attack us.

The Key to Meditation & the Secret Place

The Key (meeting)

Basics of Meditation

Meditation means to engage in contemplation or reflection. It is letting go of all the things in this physical world and focusing on something in your mind; your imagination. The Bible tells us that our thoughts are important. Scripture instructs us in what we should be meditating on:
“I will meditate also on all Your work, and talk of Your doings.” (Psalms 77:12 AKJV) 
“Meditate on these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all.” (1 Timothy 4:14 AKJV)
Paul instructs Timothy to meditate and think on the gifts that had been given to him by the Holy Spirit. When we meditate on the things of God it honors Him. This allows Him to reveal more about those things to us.

God's Message to You

Full Message from God
(The video has more info)

One of the gifts God has brought over the years is the gift of interpretation. Mostly this is used on dreams, but it can be applied to numbers when they come in a miraculous way.  Previously I gave a testimony about how God supernaturally sent the numbers 313 to my husband. Here is what the actual numbers mean according to God’s word:
  • 3 - perfection in the spirit
  • 1 - God
The night my husband received the numbers for the second time in the exact same way, the Holy Spirit showed me how these apply to the body of Christ. In the number “313” the one is surrounded by threes. If we focus on God, if He is the center of our world, it will bring us from “glory to glory.” We will become perfected in the spirit little by little.

Our Mind vs The Holy Spirit

Our Mind vs The Holy Spirit 

I asked the Holy Spirit if everything was going to go my way and He said  that I would be victorious. I even tested it by asking if Jesus the Messiah came in the flesh and the spirit agreed. But I lost! How can this happen?”

During my prayer time I asked, “You are never wrong, so it wasn’t you who spoke to her. Was there something wrong with the way the spirit was tested? Is there a way to get around the testing?”

The Voice of God - 313

The Miracle

Voice of God - 313 Video

I hoped this day would not come; it was my intention to never speak about these things outside of the book God told me to write. In my prayer time with the Lord, He asked me to tell you the full story of the miraculous sign of 313, leaving nothing out. For the first time I will share everything, all at once. This is so you know how I received this number and could then see how it applies to you and your life.

The very first year I devoted my life to God was filled with signs, wonders, and miracles. In the early summer of 2001, I lay in bed, praying as I always did, “Dear God, I thank you so much for…”

A loud voice that sounded like it came from everywhere and nowhere interrupted my prayer and said, “I bless you.”

Leviathan - Who, What, How

by Isaac Zadock

Leviathan Video

The Bible labels the armies of Egypt as Leviathan. Satan's network in the spirit realm, hovering over the Earth, is called by the same name. (Revelation 12:3) When we say an attack of "Leviathan" we are saying that it is a coordinated attack by the armies of Satan.  There are direct and indirect references to Leviathan in the Bible.  The direct references are:

  • Psalms 74:14, 104:25-26 
  • Isaiah 27:1 
  • Job 41 

Revelation 13:1 refers to Leviathan indirectly, even though it does not mention it by name.  Leviathan has traits, divisions (or heads, leaders) and a purpose which is to use pride to stifle and destroy lives and destinies God has created you for. We can see many of these divisions in the types of attacks he brings upon us.

When things go wrong in my life, I immediately seek the Lord to see if it is a trial or test or if I have gone wrong somewhere and left myself open to an attack from the enemy. This is what the Bible tells us to do:

Removing Blockages to the Secret Place

...in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up on a rock. Psalms 27:5
The word “tabernacle” means tent. The secret place is called the secret tent of God. This is a psalm (song) of David who had a big destiny with God. A prophet anointed him and declared that He would be the next king of Israel despite the fact that his own father thought so little of him that he wasn’t even called from the field to be tested: the prophet had to ask Jessie if he had any other sons! (1 Samuel 16) David was able to walk into his destiny with God because he knew how to abide in the Secret Place. It is God’s great desire to have all His children visit with Him there.

How to Find and Remove Soul Ties

Find and Remove Soul Ties

Soul ties are bridges in the spirit realm that connect to our mind, will and emotions. The emotions are a key point of contact: Almost any powerful emotional and passionate encounter with other people can form or forge soul ties. Traumas like fights, arguments, strife, accidents, fires, earthquakes, sickness, wars, death, etc. have the potential to establish a negative spiritual influence in our lives. (Matthew 6:21 AKJV). There are good ties, as we discussed in Benefits of Soul ties. There are also ungodly ties that give the enemy access to us.

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Benefits of Soul Ties

The topic of soul ties can be very difficult to understand unless you are aware of two basic principles:
  1. The Rightful Order of Creation
  2. We are Like God
Let’s establish a basis of understanding for these things first.

Spiritual Traps Through Technology

Spirit Traps Meeting
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:21 AKJV)
A treasure is something of great worth. It stirs up our soul: We think about it, we desire it, and it inspires our passion. When your soul is continually stirred up, what you focus on may cause your spirit (heart) to be tied to that thing. This is like opening a door to your soul which is your mind, will, and emotions. When that door is open, there is an opportunity for a spiritual influence to come and take root.

Getting Grace & Mercy for Our Children

Praying for Our Children

Children are nearest and dearest to the hearts and minds of their parents. In a series of visions, the Lord has revealed to us what we can expect when we pray for our children, especially as we place them before the Throne of Grace & Mercy. This revelation can be applied to others outside our family as well. It was the prayers and determination of one mother that helped bring his revelation to light:

Highest Level in the Courts of Heaven

Highest Level in the CoH

My family took a few days off during the celebration of our Independence Day, the 4th of July. Although I was gone from the ministry, God brought a major revelation about operating in the Courts of Heaven. Here is how the Lord made this revelation perfectly clear to me:

It was late when we arrived at Grandma’s cabin: the family was exhausted. The smell of cat urine came forcibly to my senses in two different spots, one downstairs and one upstairs. The Holy Spirit had used this type of discernment before, so I knew it meant demons were present.

Christians Can Have a Curse?

Christians & Curses Video

One of the most common things asked about the Courts of Heaven is also one of the most prevalent things discovered in the Courts. How can a Christian have a Curse? To understand the answer, you will need to know a simple, basic principle. Everything God created in the first chapter of the Bible, He did by speaking words.

Preparing for Intercession

Intercession Prep Meeting

When the Lord has a person on your heart, often this is a call to pray for that person. Christians refer to this as intercession: the act of intervening on behalf of another. There are many types of prayers for others. Preparation will be needed if the intercession prayer is for anything other than healing for someone who is critically ill or healing for someone who doesn’t yet know God. In these instances, the need is dire and there may not be time for preparation.

Holy Imagination & the Secret Place

Holy Imagination & the Secret Place

During our Tea & Coffee meeting, the topic came up: Is using our imagination, envisioning the Secret Place, Throne Room, Jesus or Heaven to visit with the Lord a vain Imagination? We had invited the Holy Spirit to lead the meeting and I was shocked at what He revealed about this.

Teachings about using our “Holy Imagination” to enter Heaven are becoming prevalent in the Church. What is “Holy Imagination?” The word “holy” means separate, set apart, sanctified. Can our imagination be holy?

Resting in God to Enter the Secret Place

Resting in God

Rest seems to be an important topic in the New Testament: it is mentioned more than 75 times. I have found resting in God to be one of the most challenging parts of my Christian walk, but is crucial if we are to visit the Lord face to face in the Secret Place. I’m probably not alone in these difficulties because they are mentioned in the Bible:
“Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest...” (Hebrews 4:11 AKJV)
“Resting in God” sounds like it should be easy to do. Just sit back and relax. Yet here in Hebrews, it seems that it may be a challenge to do. Laboring to enter rest sounds like an oxymoron: the two things seem to contradict each other. This struggle begs us to ask:
  • What is resting in God?
  • What are the benefits of resting?
  • What can keep us from resting?

Higher Levels in the Courts

The Throne of Grace & Mercy is a wonderful place to be. The attacks of the enemy are eased so that we can grow and learn from God. As you begin to grow in the knowledge of the Courts you may begin to wonder:
  • Are there levels to the Courts of Heaven? 
  • What do we need to do to operate in the Courts with more authority?

Receiving MORE from the Courts

Receiving More Video

Each new revelation from God seems to be so effective as it begins, then begins to degrade over time. Why is this? God is always the same, so why to things change? 

We must find the answers to these questions now because the revelation of the Courts of Heaven is in danger of becoming ineffective; an "old wineskin." To understand why, we need to know what the Bible says about old wineskins. If you have not been immersed in the Christian culture, this term may be unfamiliar to you. What does it mean to be an “old wineskin?” Three out of the four accounts in the Bible record our Lord talking about this, so it must be important:

Trouble Receiving Grace & Mercy

Trouble with Grace & Mercy

The Lord revealed how to appropriate the fullness of the grace and mercy that His sacrifice provided during Passover - the celebration where He was crucified. We saw immediate results as people began to be set free of everything from mind issues to physical healing, to demonic oppression they didn’t know was there until it was lifted. We also received messages from people who were struggling to receive grace and mercy: things actually seemed to get worse! There seemed to be a couple of common issues:

Interceding for Others

Interceding for Others

Our Lord has revealed how to appropriate the fullness of His grace and mercy for ourselves (read that article CLICK HERE). Can we intercede for the ones we love so that they are free of the attacks of the enemy? Let’s look at what the Bible tells us.

According to the Book of Daniel, chapter nine, as we have discussed, he interceded for his people and his nation. He did so with a heart grieved and sorrowful as he confessed that God had rightfully punished his people and his nation. He acknowledged the following in a broad, general way:

The Fullness of Grace & Mercy in the Courts of Heaven

Grace & Mercy Video

The way the revelation about the fullness of grace and mercy in the Courts came about is truly amazing. While I was aware that for months we were not fully appropriating God’s grace and mercy in the Courts of Heaven, I searched for the answer and asked the Lord where it was.

Last week, an Agape Christian Fellowship board member mentioned a woman who was speaking about the Throne of Grace and Mercy. When I pulled up the video, I realized I had watched it last year. I had tried to operate that way in the Courts and my attempts had failed, so I put aside the information.

This time as I watched the video, however, God brought a major revelation about operating in the Courts of Heaven with grace and mercy. I quickly jotted down scriptures and looked them up as I was instructed by the Holy Spirit. By the end of the day, I had a Bible backing a new way to handle first visits to the Courts of Heaven.

The tingling of the Holy Spirit was heavy upon me as I crawled into bed that night. As soon as I rolled over, the Lord began speaking to me, showing me how to change the way Agape Christian Fellowship ministry could better allow His Grace to provide major breakthroughs for His people.

I asked the Lord, “Why have you waited so long to reveal these things to me? I’ve been asking about it since I created the Academy?” He replied, “This is the fullness of what I accomplished at the cross: The time has finally come for My Bride to take her rightful place operating in the grace and mercy I provided.”

When He started speaking, I realized the Feast of Passover was nearing and that it would be the last one before the glory of God was revealed. Emotion overcame me as I sobbed softly. He suffered and died for this purpose and I now realized how He was showing us how to use the gift He provided so many years ago.
 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony... (Revelation 12:11)
We have not seen the fulfillment of this scripture. The “him” referred to is Satan, who is still triumphing over God’s people by attacking them with sickness, disease, and poverty. The Greek word nikaō is translated “overcame.” According to “Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon,” it refers to “when one is arraigned or goes to law (employs the law) to win the case to maintain one’s cause.” As testimony is something that is used in Court to prove your case, this verse is speaking about overcoming the enemy in the Courts of Heaven with our testimony and the blood of Jesus.

The Lord revealed this message of how to fully operate in the Courts and appropriate the grace and mercy His blood paid for it in His time. It is for His purpose. We must overcome Satan in the Courts before He returns. This message was given with the perfection that only God could devise: 
●     It was revealed right before Passover when we celebrate all that He did on the cross.●     This message will be delivered during the week-long celebrations of Passover.
Passover is held in the first month of the Hebrew New Year. God said His glory would come in 2019, but I am not certain if it is the Roman Calendar or the Hebrew calendar that He references

I have always known that God would have to tell us how to operate in the Courts with the “Outpouring of His Glory.” Still, receiving it was a surprise. After working in the Courts for more than a year, I easily recognized what was needed: 
And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. (Mark 2:22 NIV)
What “old wineskin” do we need to avoid in this season?:
●     “Repenting” for all sins, instead of those we can recall and know about.    How can we repent (turn from) a sin when we don’t know what it is? ●     Repenting for others     How can we speak for and declare that others are turning from sin?
The Book of Daniel’s Chapter 9 is often quoted to show we should “repent” for the sins of our ancestors. I always took it on faith that what I had been told was accurate: Daniel repented for his ancestors and all of Israel. This time, with the urging of the Holy Spirit, I went and looked at what was written and I recognized the connection between what Daniel did, and why “repenting” for my husband didn’t work. He didn’t repent, he confessed for his ancestors and countrymen. We need to follow Daniel’s example. Let’s look at that chapter, verse by verse.

1. The State of our Heart
And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes…  (Daniel 9:3 AKJV)
 Daniel was in “sackcloth” and “ashes,” meaning his heart was in a state of mourning and humility. When we mourn, we grieve over a loss; we are sorrowful. We need to be honest with ourselves:
●     Does knowing about the sins of others, the fact that the enemy has victory in their lives grieve you?●     Does the fact that you have wronged God and His kingdom impact your heart or are you merely wanting to be free of an attack of Satan?
 “Coming in humility” means knowing what we want or what we believe is of less importance than what God’s will is for us. Our sin is keeping God’s will from our lives. People who could otherwise be reached and find God may not because they refuse to do things His way. We have to set aside our desires and be willing to embrace what God intends for us. If you are not to the point where you can do this yet, we will intercede for you.

2. Confession.
And I prayed to the LORD my God, and made my confession… (Daniel 9:4)
 The Hebrew word yadah is translated to mean “confession” or to intensely bemoan. While we don’t use the word “bemoan” much, it means to be sorrowful about something, like “he bemoans the fact that the team lost again.”

What is making Daniel so sad that he is crying out to God? In the next several verses he not only announces the sin of God’s people, but the righteous punishment placed against them by God that they deserved.

Many Christians think that since Jesus’ blood was shed for our sins, we don’t need to worry as much about when we do wrong. This could not be further from the truth! All throughout the New Testament, Christians are urged to turn from their sin. Here is one verse about it: 
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)
 The Greek word homologeō is translated “confess” and it means much more than to just state that we have done wrong. It means to see it the way the other person does, in this case, God.

If we see things the way God does, sin is detestable, not unlike a pile of dog feces. It is something we want to avoid walking into at all costs. In fact, we will go out of our way to not step in it. If we confess sin and continue to walk in that sin every day thereafter, then we have made a false confession. We also don’t really see that the sin we have committed is all that bad.

Many confuse confessing with repenting when they talk to God. If we see it the way God does, repenting is an important part of confessing. However, more likely we try our best to never repeat the sin again. But we need to more fully see sin the way God does in order to avoid the following from occurring: 
●     Giving the enemy access to us bringing terrible things into our lives.●     Keeping the fullness of God’s goodness from our lives.●     Hindering us from walking toward our true destiny.
Daniel confessed the sins of his ancestors and his people. He stated that he knew they were wrong and was grieving over all that they did! He did not repent for them. How could he declare that all of Israel was turning from their sin? We need to update our vocabulary in the way we pray and KNOW what true confession is.

There is a place for repentance that every Christian needs to address: 
But I say to you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37) 
Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (Proverbs 18:21) 
The words “justified” and “condemned” are legal terms used in Court. God’s mercy is new every day because a new judgment comes each “day of judgment.” This is one place that we need to both confess and repent before God: every word we have said that is not according to God’s will for our life. We need to learn to watch our words.

Many Christians use the word “rebuke” address wrong words thinking it means to cancel or to make null or void. However, according to the Word of God, it means to chastise or bring low. A better word would be to renounce. Once we renounce the wrong words we have spoken, then we can cover them with the blood of Jesus and ask that they are blotted out of all records in Heaven.

3. Ask for Grace and Mercy
     ...[1] or we do not present our supplications before You for our own righteousness and justice, but for Your great mercy and loving-kindness. (Daniel 9:18 AMPC) 
Daniel didn’t have the supreme blood of Jesus, yet he knew that God was full of mercy and grace. We need to always remember: 
●     Justice brings the punishment we deserve.●     Grace and mercy bring relief from attacks—even if we don’t deserve it.
After confessing for our ancestors we can ask for a verdict and justice for those things. However, we shouldn’t ask for justice after this; we need to ask for mercy and grace. Daniel does it in this way: 
O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, listen and do; defer not, for your own sake, O my God: for your city and your people are called by your name. (Daniel 9:19) 
He asked God to forgive them even though they didn’t do anything to deserve it. The definition of grace is the free and unmerited favor of God. We ask for what we know we don’t deserve and have a much better way to ask for forgiveness than Daniel did: Jesus has paid the price!

This is not only necessary for Christians, but it is exactly what He provided with His blood. 
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16 AKJV)
The fact that we need to go before His throne shows us that there is something that we need to do to “obtain” mercy and grace. “Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon” of the New Testament tells us the Greek word lambanō means, “to take a thing due according to agreement or law.” Because of the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus we can come boldly before God’s throne. There are two distinct places to come before God’s throne: 
●     Courts of Heaven●     Throne of Grace
The Courts of Heaven are a place to remove judgments that have been granted to the enemy for our sin. They are judgments that can bring sickness, disease, and generational curses into our lives. Until recently, I had only approached God’s throne to enter His Courts. Following the example of Daniel, I know we can ask to be removed from the Courts and placed before the Throne of Grace and Mercy, not through our own righteousness, but that of Jesus. We do this by declaring our righteousness through Him and using the cry of Jesus’ blood as testimony. 
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel. (Hebrews 12:24)
The term “of sprinkling” is referring to the blood of the lamb that was sprinkled over the mercy seat in the temple of God for the sins of His people. This is a foreshadowing of what the blood of Jesus, our eternal Lamb, would do. It would be calling for mercy.
Innocent blood that is shed can actually cry out to God. According to Genesis, the blood of Abel cried out from the ground for vengeance. God came down and took vengeance on Cain. Our Lord’s blood cries out for mercy, just as He did on the cross when He said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” (Luke 23:34) 
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by Him to reconcile all things to Himself… (Colossians 1:20) 
The blood of Jesus paid the price for us to be reconciled to the Father. We can use God’s Word to appropriate the blood of Jesus to remove people from the Courts of Heaven and place them before the Throne of Grace and Mercy.

4. The Purpose 
Yet we have not earnestly begged for forgiveness and entreated the favor of the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and have understanding and become wise in Your truth. (Daniel 9:13)
Before Daniel asks for mercy, he states the purpose: so they can learn God’s ways and turn from their sin. This is the key! This is why God will grant us mercy and remove the attacks of the enemy: so that we can learn His ways and turn from our sin.

We must be ready to tell those He heals and sets free why God is doing this. There have been great movements of God in the past where thousands were healed. Research has shown that 95% of those restored wound up in worse condition within a year of receiving a healing. Jesus spoke of this on more than one occasion: 
Afterward Jesus finds him in the temple, and said to him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come to you. (John 5:14 AKJV) 
God doesn’t heal you so you can go right back to the sin that allowed the enemy to attack you in the first place. He heals you so you can be free to learn His ways and walk into the destiny for which He created you. It is His way of showing how much He loves you so that you will seek Him! 
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. (3 John 1:2) 
This is from the disciples of the Lord AFTER He left. If you are looking to be healed or to receive financially, you must feed your soul by learning about God and His ways. Many times healing comes to set us free. However, sometimes if we have been with God a long time, He expects us to take steps forward before we receive the full freedom.

The 1st Visit to the Courts of Heaven with our ministry has always been filled with the power of God, but not quite as much healing as I knew was available. Now Jesus has released us to operate in the fullness of His glory and shown us how to appropriate it.

Once you become free, you must begin to seek Him and find out what sin allowed the enemy to attack you. There may be something blocking your understanding: 
They have not known nor understood: for He has shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. (Isaiah 44:18) 
This verse is talking about your spiritual eyes, and not literally about blindness. You can ask God to help you gain understanding. 
Yes, down to this [very] day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies upon their minds and hearts. But whenever a person turns [in repentance] to the Lord, the veil is stripped off and taken away. (2 Corinthians 3:15-16 AMPC) 
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. (2 Corinthians 4:3 AKJV) 
When we declare our desire to learn God’s ways and are devoted to our Lord, we can ask for veils hindering our understanding to be removed. We can ask for our spiritual eyes to be allowed to see.

5. Continued Freedom 
But thus said the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contends with you, and I will save your children. (Isaiah 49:24-25) 
Notice that there are “lawful” captives. I have seen this in visits to the Courts of Heaven as people appeared chained and shackled to my spiritual eyes. The Lord has promised me that as long as we are seeking to learn God’s ways and continue turning from our sin, He will “contend” with the enemy for us in the Courts of Heaven. This is an approximation of what it will look like: 
Satan approaches God as he did in the Book of Job, “Look Judge, there is this, that or the other sin they are committing, so I want to strike them with (sickness, disease, or lack of provision).” 
Jesus steps forward, “Mighty, Righteous Judge, My blood has paid for these sins and I ask for mercy a while longer. The Counselor (Holy Spirit) is speaking to them about their sin. Have they not already turned from this, that, or the other sin, and are they not spending time learning Your ways? Until they can come here and receive these charges, I ask for a stay of judgment.”
This is what happens when people are healed. But after a certain period of time, if they are not seeking God, Satan will be granted his verdict. 
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. For he that sows to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:7-8) 
God knows your heart. He will not let His ways and His Courts be treated with contempt or as something that is worthless. It is the most priceless thing on this planet. We have access to the highest place of authority in Heaven and Earth. We must be willing to use it!

If we continue “sowing to the flesh,” meaning investing time and money in things that oppose God’s ways, we will “reap” or receive the things of the enemy and his accusations, and charges will bring hardship to our bodies and our lives.

This is why the Lord has now opened up the Courts of Heaven Academy to everyone who has a visit to the CoH with our team. When He sets you free, you need to learn His ways. In the Academy we can find out what sins the enemy may use to attack us.

6. Eligibility
After receiving this revelation, I raced into the Courts, intent on asking to be placed before the Throne of Grace and Mercy. As I greeted my Advocate, Jesus, I heard Him say, “private counsel.”
There are council chambers attached to the Courts of Heaven. I have seen rooms with beautiful wooden desks and impossibly high shelves filled with books. After I asked for it, the Judge said, “granted,” and we walked down a hallway to a secluded room.

As soon as the door closed the Lord told me, “You cannot be placed before the Throne of Grace and Mercy because you are an Officer in the Courts of Heaven.”

I had heard a teaching from Robert Henderson about God’s Court having lesser judges and him receiving his judge’s robes so I asked, “Does this mean I’m a judge?”

He instructed me to look at the verse in Revelation where I had seen that there would be judges that come out of the Tribulation. Then the Lord added, “The Throne of Grace and Mercy is for those who are not ready to receive charges in the Courts. They can remain there until they have learned My ways and are ready to enter My Courts. If you wish to operate in the higher things of God, you must be willing to receive charges at any time.”

This makes sense. Our prayer team is operating in the Courts to help others. You cannot be in two places at once. We must leave the Throne of Grace and Mercy to enter the Courts of Heaven to help others. Remembering what I had just learned, I cried out to Jesus, “Lord, can you not contend for us as we are operating in the Courts?”

His words were soft and filled with love, “My precious/beloved, I contend for you day and night. I only allow charges to remain that may hinder you in your walk.”

This brought tears to my eyes and a lump to my throat. When I left the council chamber, I looked up a verse as He had instructed me: 
Then I saw thrones, and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted. (Revelation 20:4) 
The Greek word thronos means a throne or seat for elders. The word krima means to decree to pass judgment. If an elder of a church enters the Courts, they can decree what the Holy Spirit reveals so that judgment can come. 
Thus said the LORD of hosts; If you will walk in my ways, and if you will keep my charge, then you shall also judge my house, and shall also keep my Courts, and I will give you places to walk among these that stand by. (Zechariah 3:7 AKJV) 
In order to operate in a place of authority in the Courts interceding for others, we need to walk in His ways and do what He tells us to do. This is what our guides have been doing in the Courts of Heaven. The Holy Spirit reveals judgments in alignment with the grace and mercy granted by the blood of Jesus when verdicts are overruled. If there are sins blocking mercy, we often see the judgments granted to the enemy.

Now we are able to decree what Jesus has released us to say according to the Word of God: we use His blood to ask for grace and mercy. Because we are continually in the Courts helping others, we need to be ready to go before the Judge for ourselves and remove any sin if an assault comes upon us.

There have been times when I cry out to God for mercy because the enemy is attacking me with a vengeance and I don’t know which sin is giving him the rights to me. Others have prayed for me and asked for mercy and the attacks may ease a bit, enough that I can pray. The Holy Spirit then reveals where I have gone wrong so I can confess and repent. The attack of the enemy are immediately removed.

If you are an elder, guiding others in the Courts of Heaven, He expects more from you: 
My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the severer judgment. (James 3:1 KJV) 
… but he that knew not, and did things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. And to whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required.” (Luke 12:48 AKJV) 
There is still grace and mercy available to elders, but it is on a case-by-case basis and penalties are higher. This goes for anyone who has a mantle in the Five-fold Ministry, meaning a church leadership that consists of an Apostle, Evangelist, Prophet, Pastor, and Teacher. The Lord will intervene, but we must be ready to turn from sin. Before escorting others to the Courts of Heaven, you should consider these two previous verses from James and Luke and decide if you are ready to be removed from the Throne of Grace and Mercy.

7. Sample Prayer
I have created a short prayer template based on the scriptures mentioned here. Please remember, it is the state of your heart that matters, meaning that you must have the right motives.
In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. (Daniel 9:2)
Daniel took time to research and find out that now was the right time for his people to be free. By reading this article, you have done that as well. If you are not aware of the “Awakening” or the “Outpouring,” you can search this blog for those words and learn more about it.
If you’d like to pray on your own, follow Daniel’s example.
And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting and sackcloth and ashes. (Daniel 9:3) 
I suggest looking at the Ten Commandments as a starting point so you are clear about what sin is. Then think about these things before you begin to pray:
●     Did your ancestors achieve their destiny? Were they in sin?
●     Do you desire to know your destiny with God and to walk in it?
●     Is there a possibility of sin that is holding you back?
●     Are you ready to leave any revealed sin behind?
●     Are you ready to spend time learning God’s ways?
If you can answer “yes” to the last four of these questions, you are ready to pray for grace and mercy. We recommend that you don’t begin going to the Courts of Heaven until you are able to be led by the Holy Spirit and know about the Courts and how to operate there. Numbers below indicate which section the following prayers refer to.
Heavenly Father,
(2) I come before you, as Your Word tell us to come boldly before your Throne; Not in my own righteousness, but in the righteousness of my Lord, Jesus. I confess that my ancestors’ ways were not your ways. They have sinned against you and your kingdom. I, too, have sinned against You and Your Kingdom. My tongue has not been tamed, I have spoken wrongly about myself and others. I renounce any words I have spoken that don’t line up with Your plans for my life or the lives of others. I ask that the Blood of Jesus blot these words out now from all records in Heaven and Earth.

(4) I realize that I don’t know as much as I should about You. I desire to learn Your ways and turn from any sin in my life.

(3) I have taken Jesus as the Lord of my life and am His willing bond servant. According to your Word, His blood cries out from the ground, asking for mercy. I thank you for that mercy Father and I ask that you grant me mercy and forgive me for my sins, so that I may learn your ways and turn from my sin: Place me before the Throne of Grace and Mercy and free me from the attacks of the enemy.

(5) Lord Jesus, the Word says you will contend for us. I ask that you contend for me in the Courts of Heaven should the enemy come against me while I am studying Your ways.

(4) Remove any veils hindering my thoughts and open my spiritual eyes so I may see and understand the ways of Your Kingdom.
I thank you for the grace and mercy granted through the blood of your son!  Amen.
This is a prayer template only. You should always follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. The results are dependent upon our faith in them. If you would like to come into agreement with my faith, there is a prayer much like this at the end of the video mentioned at the beginning of this chapter. If you do not see any change, you can schedule to enter the Courts of Heaven and we will be listening to the Holy Spirit to see if anything else needs to be done. Sometimes there are declarations, decrees, or agreements from our ancestors that must be declared and broken. In a chapter that follows, we will discuss this in greater detail.

You should now have grace and mercy to learn God’s ways so that you can take your rightful place in the Courts of Heaven as a Child of the most High and a Citizen of Heaven. We have created an online school, Courts of Heaven Academy, if you would like help learning the ways of God’s courts. You will want to stay in that place of mercy and grace until you are able to:
Hear the Holy Spirit clearly
Know about your rightful place in the Courts
Know the procedures for operating in the Courts
As long as you are trying to learn about God and are turning from any sin that is revealed to you by the Holy Spirit, you should remain in that place of grace. If you experience any difficulties, please contact us at CoHvisit@gmail.com

Destroying Curses
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.
