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.
Marie, my niece and I laid on the bed, talking quietly before we slept. “Do you have earbuds?” I asked. She nodded, “You may want to use them. With no doors and no insulation, sound travels. Tony and his aunt, who owns this cabin, like to stay up late taking. It used to cause strife between Tony and me, but now I just use the headphones.”
Marie commiserated with me about being kept awake when expected to arise early the next day, then we settled down for the night.
I recalled the time when a shadowy giant five-foot bat had attacked me in that upstairs bedroom as I lay exhausted from burying our dog in the backyard (full story in Angels Believe in You). I had pulled the sheet over my head before I realized it was a demon and cast it out. Not wanting to be bothered again, knowing the enemy was about, I quickly prayed, placing the blood of Jesus over this temporary residence.
I woke up with allergy symptoms. With very little privacy and much to do, I didn’t have time to go to the Courts in prayer and see what was up, so I used some over-the-counter help to make it through the day. I figured I would deal with whatever it was that let the enemy in later.
Things only got worse. On the 4th of July my stomach started feeling weird. By evening I was running to the bathroom. I missed the fireworks and had to remain downstairs close to the toilet. With Tony’s family in the living room with me, I couldn’t even go to the Courts! When I was finally able to get to bed, I was exhausted!
The next morning things were a little better. Best of all, I had some time to be alone in my room to pray. As I entered the Courts the Lord said very firmly, “Private Counsel.” The Judge said granted and I saw myself escorted from Court, followed by a very large contingency of angelic hosts which flew down and walked beside us.
This counsel room had an impossibly high shelf of books on the left side of the room with a big wooden desk 30 feet towards the back of the room. Off to the right was a fireplace with oversized leather furniture. The fire didn’t consume the wood and I knew it was the fire of God that Moses saw.
The Lord escorted me to the fire and pointed at the chair, “Sit, rest,” He commanded. An angel brought a cushion for my feet and a glass with light brown liquid in it. Standing over me the Lord said, “You are not resting on what you know. I am contending for you. The Holy Spirit is your Counselor. He will tell you what you need to do, outside the Courts.”
Jesus is so good. He was bringing me a vision to vividly describe exactly what He expected. “Thank you,” I told Him then quickly excused myself to do as He commanded.
Laying in bed, I asked, “Holy Spirit, you are my Counselor, Teacher and Guide. You know what I need to do. Why am I the only one plagued by sickness when I should be the one free of such things.”
Instantly I remembered the conversation with my niece. I knew my words were being used against me in the courts to say I hadn’t forgiven my host and that I was walking outside of the love of God because of this Bible verse coming to mind:
"But I say to you, 'That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.' (Matthew 12:36)Out loud, I confessed that I had spoken ill of my host. I announced that I forgive all involved with this issue.
A picture appeared in my mind: Jesus was on the cross and blood streamed from His hands. I instantly knew what the Holy Spirit wanted me to say, “Jesus, I thank you that Your blood blots out these sins…”
More pictures appeared: each one showed me what to say and declare next. I only declared what the Holy Spirit told me to say. Within 10 minutes, I was feeling fine and ready to go to dinner with the family.
At the local pizza place, I started to feel queasy. I excused myself and alone in the toilet, I prayed in the heavenly language. The healing scriptures I pray on certain mornings came to mind and I thanked God for all that He had provided by stating those scriptures. All symptoms disappeared and I felt fine once again as I rejoined the family.
A couple of lessons to note:
- Pleading the blood over an area where you are walking out of the love of God will not keep the enemy out.
- Words said can be used as proof that we are in unforgiveness.
- Don’t do anything but thank God for His word unless the Holy Spirit says otherwise.
- The enemy may test your faith in what has been done:
- Follow the guiding of the Holy Spirit.
- Quoting God’s good promises may be necessary to overcome this: not declaring and decreeing, but thanking God for who He is, our healer.
- Jesus is contending for you as your Advocate (Isaiah 49:25)
- The Holy Spirit is your Earthly Advocate, your Counselor (John 14:16)
- Your Counselor will tell you what sins you need to confess in order to be free. (James 5:16, 1 John 1:9-10)
“Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
“And he said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:14)If you have not yet experienced freedom from the Courts of Heaven, we would love to help you! The Lord had us create the FREE Courts of Heaven Academy where you can not only learn about it, but receive hands on training in other court appointments. It is our sincere desire that all our brothers and sisters in Christ will come to the highest level and learn to see and hear in the Courts so that they can rest in what Jesus is doing as they receive guidance from the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, outside the Courts.
Courts of Heaven Academy
After the meeting about the Highest Level in the Courts we had a Tea & Coffee discussion. Mostly we talked about how to pray for our children:

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
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.
