2nd Signpost: Focus

VIDEO: 2nd Signpost - Focus

The second sign appeared when I least expected it. Usually, I receive new instructions once I have completed the tasks given to me. There had been a feeling of building pressure; my workload was behind schedule from the previous week. Life was getting in the way and I hadn’t yet recorded the revelation about the first sign in this book. 

The gray-haired gentleman on a TV program, dedicated to supernatural occurrences within the church, was interviewing someone who had an incredible healing ministry. The pastor said that the Lord told him that the old ways to the Secret Place were closing. The new path He was opening would be available to all Christians who would seek it.

Old and New Wineskin

VIDEO: Old & New Wineskin - Receiving More in the Courts of Heaven


Each new revelation from God seems to be so effective as it begins, then degrades over time. Why is this? God is always the same, so why does the flow of His power 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.” If you have not been immersed in the Christian culture, this term may be unfamiliar to you. To understand why this is a danger, we need to know:

  • What does the Bible say about old wineskin?
  • 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:

1st Signpost: Communion

VIDEO: 1st Signpost: Communion

After I had said the Aaronic blessing for 21 days, at lunch with a friend, I asked the Holy Spirit, “The vision You sent me had four words for the ‘Roadmap.’ If this information is part of that book I am now writing, which word is first?” 

The Holy Spirit now brought those memories vividly back to my thoughts. A word came instantly to mind, and inside my head, I could see it lying across a mountaintop.

Harvest Time in the Secret Place


 Harvest Time in the Secret Place 

Our family vacation had been very busy with visiting relatives we hadn’t seen in a few years. This kept me from spending as much time with the Lord as I usually do. Although He had given me the “core” of the message for the following week, I had yet to create it! 

The first day back, I sought the Lord as I worshipped Him and a scene opened up before me. This “vision” is what we now know as a visit to the Secret Place, where we can meet with the Lord to receive instructions from Him. The Secret Place is different from my very vivid imagination because of the surprising things that often happen there: they really are not what I am expecting to occur. The following  is what happened on the first day of our family vacation:

The Season to Seek the Lord

The Season to Seek the Lord

When the pandemic first began, the Lord said:

“If those who are called by My name will seek My Face and take refuge in Me, they will not need to fear the CoronaVirus.”

The word “christ” means anointed. As “Christians” we are stating that we are operating in the anointing of Jesus who is the Christ or the Anointed One of God. This is the first step to safety from the pandemic, but it is only one out of three steps:

  • called by My name
  • seek My Face
  • take refuge in Him

During morning prayers on Facebook live I have shown you how to “take refuge in Him.” In my private prayer time, the Lord spoke very loudly to me and said: “This is the season for those who are Mine to seek Me: they shall find Me. Show them how.”

Heavenly Language

VIDEO: Heavenly Language

Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty... (Ephesians 6:18 AMPC) 

But you, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. (Jude 1:20–21 AKJV) 

Throughout the New Testament, there is mention of “praying in the Spirit” which is the same as praying in “an unknown tongue.” Dr. Andrew B. Newberg; a neuroscientist, Professor, and Director at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, did a study of the brain and compared brain scans of Buddhist monks and Franciscan nuns praying in their normal way against the brain scans of people who were praying in the Spirit. The study showed that the frontal lobe of those praying in the Spirit was mostly dormant while the monks and nuns who were praying in their own language, the traditional way, had a normal level of frontal lobe activity. The frontal lobe region of the brain is where the “language center” resides. Even those who uttered gibberish showed activity in this part of the brain. This study concluded that when people were “praying in the Spirit,” it wasn’t coming from their own mind.

Grace and Mercy For Leaders

 

VIDEO: Grace and Mercy For Leaders

“Hindsight is 20/20” is a saying which means when looking at the past, everything is clearly seen. We can apply this saying when the Holy Spirit is speaking to us. Often when we are under an attack from Satan and his minions, we can look back at our lives and pinpoint how the Holy Spirit was speaking to us and where we missed His guidance. 

God often warns us and gives us time to correct our path when we are going in the wrong direction. When we push ahead of God, we walk out of His covering and right into the hands of our adversary, the Devil.  

On Wednesday night, God revealed that I was outside of His covering, and as a result, I had a pain in my shoulder that prevented me from sleeping. I have reached a place in my relationship with God where I know that if the enemy can afflict me with pain and suffering, it is because I am away from my Defender - the Lord. 

My defense and shield depend on God, Who saves the upright in heart. (Psalms 7:10 AMPC) 

The next day, a team member prayed with me and I confessed and repented for all I could have possibly done wrong. The repentance brought a small amount of relief but no breakthrough. I discussed the dream I had that night with that team member: 

I had gone back to rescue the second person from a haunted house, and no one believed his story about being attacked. Because of the rescue, I wasn’t able to cross the huge bridge in time. Instead of crossing over to safety, we had to climb up to the top of the bridge support. A wave came over the bridge, while we hung on for dear life. 

This scenario seemed to suggest that if I continued on the current path, I would have to scramble to safety in order to survive. During prayer with an Agape Team member, I received several visions and was made aware that I needed to take care of the following: 

I was walking on a balance beam, and my destiny was on the far side. I fell off the beam and was hanging by my left arm (the arm that was in pain.) 

At this point, the Holy Spirit had brought a lot of information, but I did not understand how to apply it to my life. After our Agape Fellowship Meeting, the elders interceded for me, and the Lord told us NOT to go into the Courts for charges. Instead, He said to us through three different people: 

“My grace is sufficient.” 
“Healing will take time.” 
“It is about balance.” 

That night, the pain intensified so much that I went to the hospital emergency room. The diagnosis was a torn rotator cuff or shoulder sprain. The escalation of the attack clarified that there was an open door for the enemy to attack me, and in order to get it closed QUICKLY, I had to cancel most of my meetings for the next day. 

I spent my morning crying out to the Lord, asking Him to show me where I had gone wrong. Several items came to mind that revealed the following: 

  • We uploaded new articles to the blog the day the pain began, and the topics of those articles did not focus on the Courts of Heaven or the Secret Place. 
  • We did not create a new class from one of the articles as planned. 

Over the years, I have learned that when God is in the mix, He causes projects to flow smoothly. Obviously, God wasn’t present in this new class. I deleted the class information and unpublished the articles and asked the Lord for mercy, but the pain didn’t get any better. 

While lying on my bed with tears streaming from my eyes, I cried out to the Lord, “I have dedicated my life working for You by helping others connect with You. Have I not shown that I will accept correction? Just show me what is blocking me from receiving mercy!” 

A thought entered my mind that was a word from the Lord, “Have you given My leaders mercy? As you have sown, so are you reaping.” 

Instantly I understood the issue: I had not shown mercy to God’s leaders. In my family, we have five pastors who have not accepted the revelation of the Courts of Heaven. Neither do they believe that Agape Christian Fellowship is a true church because it is an online church. 

Although these family members have been suffering from recent attacks upon their physical health, my heart was very hard towards them. I was not compassionate or merciful and did not respond with grace. 

In truth, these feelings went beyond family. Until the moment I cried out to God, I didn’t understand how someone really devoted to God could wind up so far from His ways. It didn’t occur to me how much they loved God and how hard they were trying to please Him. I only saw the mistakes they were making. Now I had a new perspective. When looking back, I understand the various signs that I had missed.  The biggest one was this: 

When I would lift up the footrest on my chair, the cord to my laptop would wrap around the end of the chair, causing it to unplug from the power source. This event continued several times, even after I had made partial corrections to my path (with God) two weeks earlier. 

Why hadn’t I recognized that there was still an issue? I’ve sat in the same chair for three years and never had an issue with the power cord. In hindsight, it is now perfectly clear: I was over-extending my reach. The tear in the rotator cuff happened for the same reason: we try to grab onto something we shouldn’t. 

The articles were correct; they were just off the path God had for me. I was overreaching where I was supposed to be. 

If I had continued on this path for many years, how far would I have possibly wandered from God’s ways? Although my intentions were good, I had not listened to subtle corrections from the Holy Spirit. This put me out in the open, away from God’s covering, which allowed the enemy to attack me. 

Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, after they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. (Acts 16:6-7 AKJV) 

There are many places we can go, but God has a right path and a wrong path for each of us. We must stay on the right path if we want to be under God’s covering. The purpose of Agape Christian Fellowship and the Courts of Heaven Academy is to help you connect with the Lord in the Secret Place. This is accomplished by: 

  • Clearing out attacks of the enemy. 
    • Often through intercession or soul healing. 
  • Removing blockages to the spirit realm. 
    • Through classes and fellowship. 
  • Helping you walk the Roadmap to Heaven. 
    • Through the free book, which gives a guide to the Secret Place. 

Once you are receiving from the Lord, then He can reveal all that you need to know. The new articles I had written were wrong for Agape because the classes focused on what the enemy is doing and where other leaders have gone wrong, not on your walk with God. 

  • You really don’t need a class on demons; the Lord will reveal that in time. 
  • You don’t need to name and call out the mistakes other leaders are making; the Holy Spirit will guide your heart. 

If I had continued in that direction, two things would have occurred: 

  1. The revelation could be hard for some to accept and be a stumbling block for them. 
  2. It would delay me in my progress toward the destiny that He has for me. 

God's grace was truly sufficient! It would have been so easy to start down the wrong path with the best of intentions. Only that extreme pain got me going in the right direction: 

  1. The possible “stumbling blocks” are removed. 
  2. My heart has softened for the coming correction upon God’s leaders. 

I would love to say the pain disappeared as soon as I confessed, repented, and plead the blood over these sins. It did not. It only lessened a little. The Bible is clear: 

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7 AKJV) 

Throughout the next few days, I began truly repenting:  

  1. I prayed for each person I had felt unmerciful towards. 
  2. I interceded for them for mercy. 
  3. I confessed that I had not truly forgiven those who had rejected me. 
  4. I asked God to bless them. 

This is what repentance means. If you have done wrong, you must go back and do it right! 

Signs of An Attack 

When I didn’t give grace and mercy to other leaders, others were not giving it to me. Over the last few months, we have received more emails with complaints than we have had in the preceding three years! 

I now know that when my work is being constantly challenged, it is because God’s grace has lifted. The Holy Spirit no longer “has my back,” so to speak. I am truly grateful when I receive corrections for typos etc., but recently the comments have been quite harsh. 

  • When a leader has a “mantle,” that shields those under them. It keeps the harshest attacks of the enemy at bay and allows the Holy Spirit to bring wisdom. 
  • When a leader is out of alignment with God, it opens a door for all those who are under them to be tested. That spirit can come in and try to gain a place. 

Each person’s walk is their own. Being connected to a leader with many open doors just means there is less shelter; it gives the enemy permission to come knocking on your door. We must still open the door for the enemy to move into our lives. 

In one of the two meetings that were not canceled, the Holy Spirit allowed me to speak about what was happening in my life. Someone pointed out that she was led to repent for not granting me mercy for the minor errors and typos they encountered in my work. They didn’t get the nudge from the Holy Spirit until the day I repented for not giving leaders grace and mercy. This was when I knew that God would turn this “life lesson” into a class at the Academy. 

If we want to receive grace and mercy, we must give it to others. If you have a hard heart towards a leader for mistakes they have made, you may need to ask God to help you to forgive them and repent by asking Him to have mercy and grace towards them. A few “leaders” to consider: 

  • Your husband is the leader of your home - we are to honor our husbands, and mercy is part of honoring him. 
  • A “boss” at work is a leader. If you want favor at your job, make sure you are responding with grace and mercy. 

When you learn that someone is continuing on a wrong path, especially a leader, pray and ask God to grant them wisdom. This is the way the body will become stronger, not by attacking each other! 

What happens when a leader of a ministry is removed or out of commission? An Agape Team member was concerned about this when I was injured. The pain was so fierce and the doctors did not know how long I would be totally unavailable. During her prayer time, the team member received a vision that answered her question: 

A beautiful wine goblet had a unique stem: red wine filled it, and a large globe on top.  

The scene switched, and there was a wine vat with the spout turned on. She pressed the button to turn it off, and it didn’t work because it was broken. 

As the team member went on her afternoon walk, the Holy Spirit showed her what it meant: 

  • The goblet is Agape Christian Fellowship. 
    • It has a strong foundation, filled with the covenant of the Lord (the red wine), which brings His presence. 
    • We even have a “Foundations” course at the Academy. 
  • The wine vat is the Lord; the wine is His presence. 
    • Even though the leader of Agape was out of commission (the broken button), He was still pouring His presence into the ministry because of the strong foundation. 

The Lord has created “Agape Christian Fellowship.” This church is bigger than one individual, even the leader. One person cannot keep Him from working through what He has built. Because of the solid foundations, the Lord will continue to pour His presence into what He has established. 

Receiving Breakthrough 

Sunday, I spent time in prayer. It was more difficult to enter the Secret Place to visit with the Lord with an echo of pain surrounding me. Every twitch of my arm would bring intense pain. 

Determination set in. I would seek the Lord. What else did I have to do? I couldn’t move without waves of agony piercing my left side. 

What usually took minutes took almost an hour. I rested at the feet of my Lord, praying, “You know the destiny for which you created me. You know I will do anything You want. I trust your grace is sufficient. You will heal me in Your time and in time to accomplish all I need to do for You.” 

The next morning, I woke with about 50% more mobility. With no appointments or meetings, I spent more time seeking the Lord, just to spend time with Him. The following day I woke with 80% of the pain gone. The following day, only a twinge of pain was present when I extended my arm too much. 

The orthopedic surgeon could not come up with any reason for the pain to decrease so dramatically. She will do an MRI to make sure the rotator cuff muscle has not detached from the shoulder blade, but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.  

This is the way to receive breakthroughs. We must rest in the fact that His grace is sufficient. In His time, our healing will manifest in the way that He sees fit.

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two


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.

Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 1

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

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 2

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.

Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 3


Our rights to appear in the Courts of Heaven have been greatly undervalued. The missing key to our authority is here. Jesus has provided the access and the Bible shows us the court procedures. When we learn to operate in our rightful place as children of the Most High, the enemy will be defeated and we will see the victory we have prayed for.

The death of Jesus freed us from the curse of the law. However, we must declare this freedom just as we must make a declaration for our salvation.

  • Can curses be passed to our children?
  • What are signs of a curse?
  • How do you get rid of one?

Every answer is backed by scripture. Come and find out how easy it is to be free!

Roadmap to Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 4



As I meditated and sought the Lord, a vision overcame me. A “Roadmap to Heaven” was deposited into my soul. We are entering a season of unparalleled access to Heaven. Jesus is calling all who are His to visit with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High.

  • What is the Secret Place?
  • How do we enter?
  • What will we find there?

The Bible holds the answers, the mystery has been revealed. As you use the map given in this book to journey to the Secret Place, discover your destiny and find the gifts the Holy Spirit will bring along the way.

Heavenly Hosts

VIDEO: Heavenly Hosts

The Book of Revelation shows us that we must be careful how we deal with angels. John was shown wondrous things when the Lord called, “Come up here.” He fell down at the feet of the angel and worshiped him... 

Then said he to me, See you do it not: for I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. (Revelation 22:9 AKJV) 

We should never pray to or worship anything but God. He alone deserves our adoration, and He alone can answer our prayers. The hosts of Heaven are the servants of God and include His servants, angels or messengers, and the army. This includes Michael, Gabriel, or even lesser angels.

Revelation Seals 4-7

 

The first three seals saw the emergence of the Antichrist and two of the “horsemen of the apocalypse.”  These occur in the first part of the tribulation or the final of Daniel’s weeks. Let’s continue looking at the remaining seals the Lamb of God will break before God’s wrath is unleashed on this earth.

Fourth Seal

And when he had opened the fourth seal…  behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given to them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7-8)

Death quickly follows famine for we see hunger is one of the tools used for death to take life. It is interesting to note that only one-fourth “part of the earth.” Since it is part of the earth and not a percentage of mankind, it is likely that only some countries will experience the effects of this seal.

First Three Seals of Revelation and the Antichrist


If we look at Daniel and Revelation, then we will know when the seven-year tribulation will begin as certain key events occur. Much of the world may be unaffected at first, so knowing what to look for is vital!

When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15 AMPC)

We were told by our Lord that we should look for and recognize this event as being close to persecution and His return to rule and reign. This also means Christians will be around when it happens. What is the “abomination of desolation?” Discussing the events surrounding the return of our Lord should show us what to look for and help us pinpoint this event.

Studying the events around the second coming should invigorate the body of Christ. After all, we are all expectantly waiting for this time. Unfortunately, instead of uniting us as a body working for the Kingdom of Heaven, it often creates division and strife. As we continue looking into the Book of Revelation, please remember that what we choose to believe concerning the return of the Lord doesn’t affect our salvation.

We are all brothers and sisters, adopted into the family of God. If what you believe doesn’t line up with what I believe, that is okay. We can agree to disagree and celebrate the fact that one day, we will all know  the truth!

Healing Your Soul

VIDEO: Your Soul

If we go back to the Book of Genesis, we can see God’s original intention and plan for mankind through His created beings, Adam and Eve, and how through the fall and the ongoing influence of sin down through the generations, we became damaged in our souls and bodies. 

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the Earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the Earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. (Genesis 1:26–27 ESV) 

...and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7 NKJV) 

There are two important things to note in these two accounts of the creation of mankind. 

  1. God made man in the image of Himself, the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We were designed to look and be just like Him (spirit, soul, and body).  
  2. God gave His breath of Life (His Spirit breath) and man became a living being. It wasn’t until man received the breath of God, His Spirit, that he lived.

Strengthening Your Spirit

VIDEO: Your Spirit 

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 AMPC) 

Paul’s prayer for the Thessalonians demonstrates that we are a three-part being, just like our Creator. God is a spirit, and we are spirit beings who have a soul and live in a body. This is why Paul listed the three parts to every human in this order. Many Christians have been taught that they have a spirit, soul, and body, but they may not understand the role of each of them. Some believe the soul and spirit are the same but as you can see, that is not what the Bible says. 

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 AKJV) 

We could not divide the two if they were one and the same. The spirit is the part of us that is connected to God and Heaven. The soul is our mind, will, and emotions: that connects to the things of this Earth. It is God’s will that the spirit rule over the soul and body. The soul with its memory, will, and emotions depends on the functionality of your brain and body for it to express itself or be conscious. The spirit can exist on its own, apart from the soul and body.

Heavenly Lawsuits and Financial Breakthrough

VIDEO: Heavenly Lawsuits and Financial Breakthrough

When our Facebook group began, it was called the “Courts of Heaven – Worldwide.” At that time, you might have seen and even signed the “Class Action Lawsuit” against the Kingdom of Darkness for financial restitution in our “files” section. I began preparing this for filing in the Courts of Heaven by reviewing the document in the “Agape Tea and Coffee” meeting. When I asked those present to pull up the document in our Facebook group to read along with me, I was shocked to find out that the document was missing! 

“The enemy must be in our midst: It seems we are under attack!” I declared. The Holy Spirit brought me up short, bringing my thoughts to a skidding halt with a big “check” in my spirit. I quickly amended my statement, “I’ve had the Holy Spirit send me interesting messages and confirmation on my computer before I amended my declaration.” “We need to pray for wisdom and determine who is behind this.” The group prayed in agreement for God to give wisdom concerning this matter.

Dangers of Wrong Alignment

VIDEO: Wrong Alignment

We received an email asking if attending churches that were coming under correction would cause you to lose the anointing as well. My answer was simple: The Lord hasn’t told me directly, however, His Word states: 

If there come any to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that bids him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:10-11 AKJV)  

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine [is disloyal to what Jesus Christ taught], do not receive him [do not accept him, do not welcome or admit him] into [your] house or bid him Godspeed or give him any encouragement. (2 John 1:10-11 AMPC) 

This scripture seems to say that if we support those who are teaching and operating outside the ways of the Lord, then we become guilty by association. It refers to those looking to make a profit from the Gospel, but not acknowledging that Jesus actually came in the flesh. I now have confirmation from the Lord that this will be applied to all those who have added to or warped what the Bible says. This is the warning that was given with the previous scripture:

Removing Charges in the Courts of Heaven

VIDEO: Removing Charges

In the Courts of Heaven Academy workbook Receiving Charges in the Courts of Heaven (301 course), you have learned when and how to enter the Courts to receive the charges the enemy has against you so that you can be free of his attacks. It is important to remember that man has free will.  

  • When our soul is stronger than our spirit and dominating our mind, we can receive words from ourselves instead of the Holy Spirit.  
  • You may receive words from another spirit. 

Understanding how to recognize some key ways God and the enemy speaks, taught in Workbooks three and six, is helpful. This is why we are told to fellowship with others; there are some who operate in a gift of discerning spirits. They can confirm the charges are from the Holy Spirit. After the words of accusation have been determined to be from your Counselor, it is vital that you understand them. 

If there be a messenger with him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to show to man his uprightness: Then He is gracious to him, and said, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom. (Job 33:23-24 AKJV) 

When we receive charges from the enemy, we must search out an interpretation of those charges. We must be willing to understand what is against us so that God can deliver us from the destruction of the enemy. This is confirmed in the New Testament: 

Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed... (James 5:16 AKJV) 

The word “confess” in this verse is the Greek word, exomologeĊ (eks-o-mo-lo-ge'-o), which means to profess that one will do something, to promise, agree, engage. We must openly acknowledge our sin and agree that we have sinned, promising to remove it from our lives.  

The charges our prayer teams receive in the Courts need interpretation so that we understand them in order to acknowledge our sin. You will need to speak to someone with the gift of interpretation. This also allows you to fulfill the directions in the New Testament by confessing your sins to another Christian before returning to the Courts to remove those charges. In most cases, even if you have the gift of interpretation, you will need to discuss the charges with another Christian to receive the full revelation of how they apply. We see this applied to the Courts of Heaven in another scripture: 

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 AKJV) 

The Greek word homologeĊ is translated as “confess,” and it means much more than just state that we have done wrong. It means to see it the way the other person does, in this case, God. It is not only saying we were wrong but actually agreeing fully with God about how He sees it. When we confess Jesus as Lord, we are seeing Him as our Master, and we are His servant. When we learn that we are not acting according to God’s ways, we must confess that sin, seeing it the way He does. This allows the sin to be blotted out by the blood and erased for good. 

The number of words or the difficulty in understanding them may be a test of pride and humility. Learning more about the words is very important. Inviting the help of our Counselor, the Holy Spirit, is crucial to each and every step of this process. After translating them into your native language, then do these three things: 

  1. Look up all the words; there may be definitions you don’t know about. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary online is great.  
  2. Copy the words’ synonyms so you can look at the words in a different way.  
  3. Use the internet to research words that aren’t in the dictionary. 

While you are learning about your charges, be ready to receive clues from the Holy Spirit who chose these particular words: 

  1. If something grabs your attention, it may be the Holy Spirit leading you to follow that thread of thought. 
  2. Record any memories that come up during this process. 
  3. Take a break if your brain gets overloaded or if you begin to feel overwhelmed. 

Consider these guidelines for grouping:  

  1. The words should be grouped in sections. You cannot take words 3,5,9, and 12 to form a group. 
  2. Look for common themes with each word.  
  3. If words have a similar meaning, often all the words in between them will all be part of the same group.  

Removing the Charges 

When you re-enter the Courts to remove charges, it is about appropriating what the Lord has done for us by the shedding of His blood. Many try to apply this verse about sin:  

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.  (Romans 6:14 AKJV) 

Taken out of context, this verse seems to say that through Jesus, our sin cannot affect us. We must read what is said before this to understand how this verse, and others like it, should be applied: 

Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield you your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin: but yield yourselves to God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. (Romans 6:11-13 AKJV) 

We must consider (reckon) that we are dead, or no longer participating in sin, but instead, we live according to our Lord. Our sin cannot have dominion or rule over our mortal body any longer. We can take authority over sin and stop sinning by yielding ourselves to God, to be used by Him instead!  

Once you find out what sin is allowing the enemy to attack you, then you must be willing to STOP doing it! This is what brings breakthroughs in the Courts of Heaven. It isn’t a special way to pray or speak special words that will immediately remove the enemy from our lives. It is by finding out what sin is opening the door to the enemy, then using the power of the blood to cover the sin and remove it from our life, as it is blotted out of all records in Heaven.  

The enemy will be watching us. If we walk right back into that sin, he will be ready to attack us once more. This is why many people lose their healing after receiving a breakthrough in prayer. We must remove the sin which allows Satan’s access to us. 

Prayer to Enter the Courts 

At Agape Christian Fellowship, we schedule all appointments as “Intercession.” Should the Lord let us know that our presence is required in the Courts, the guide will lead you there through prayer. During this visit to the CoH, everything must be led and be dependent upon the Holy Spirit, our Counselor. We must be willing and be ready to respond to His leading. The prayer leader, or  “guide,” will listen and respond to what they see and hear. By removing the legal access of the enemy, we can make great strides toward our destiny and deepen our relationship with God. 

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful to Him, and bless His name. (Psalms 100:4 AKJV) 

Prayer should always begin with a thankful heart and by giving praise to God. We must state our intentions in faith, why we have access to the Throne as we acknowledge God as our Judge.  

But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in Heaven… (Philippians 3:20 AMPC) 

I commonly use this as my prayer to enter the Courts: 

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the sacrifice of Your Son, Jesus. We come before you in His name. We thank you for the Holy Spirit who has revealed to us through your word, the Courts of Heaven. Heavenly Father, we acknowledge You as The Righteous Judge over Heaven and Earth, and we take our places in your courtroom today as children of the Most High God and Citizens of Heaven. 

Next, we must come under the authority of Jesus, relying on the Holy Spirit as we approach the Judge (scriptures found in the free book: Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven):  

Lord Jesus, thank you for being our heavenly Advocate, Leader, and Head. We submit to You and ask that we receive information from You and the Holy Spirit. We trust that You will lead us through these proceedings. 

Holy Spirit, we honor and appreciate you as our Counselor, Helper, and Guide. Thank You for escorting us today. We place our trust and faith in you to reveal to us all that we need to know. 

Once we have taken our appropriate place in the Courts, we can respond to the charges against us by stating each word received from the Judge through the Holy Spirit. These steps should be included in this process: 

  1. Confess you are guilty of all charges  
  2. State that you are repenting or turning from these sins 
  3. Confess that your ancestors are guilty (if it applies) 
  4. Cover the sins with the blood of Jesus 

Listen to the Holy Spirit to see if there is more that is needed to repent for. State anything the Holy Spirit brings to you. After you have made a full confession, then state scriptures to back up your claim. Our team uses something like this: 

Mighty Judge over Heaven and Earth, I place the testimony of the blood of Jesus into the records of this court today. This blood cries out from the ground for mercy. We stand in agreement with the blood of Jesus today and ask for mercy for the sins declared before these Courts. 

Your word tells us that when we confess and repent for our sins, You are faithful to forgive. Thank You, Mighty Judge, that the blood of Jesus blots out the confessed sins from all records in Heaven and Earth. According to Your word, they will never be held against us again. 

For I will be merciful and gracious toward their wickedness, And I will remember their sins no more. (Hebrews 8:12 AMP) 

In Him we have redemption [that is, our deliverance and salvation] through His blood, [which paid the penalty for our sin and resulted in] the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:7 AMP) 

Your case has now been presented before the Courts of Heaven. It is now time to ask for a verdict:  

I ask you, Mighty Judge, to dismiss any cases connected to these sins. Let them be dismissed and overruled for lack of evidence, in Jesus’ Name. May we have a verdict? 

Make sure you listen for the verdict and state what you hear. If you receive a vision, it may indicate that more is needed to be done or that chains of bondage are removed. This is why our visits to the Courts are led by church elders: you must be ready to follow the guidance of your Counselor, Holy Spirit, and respond to what is being revealed. Sometimes more repentance or confession is needed. If you hear “overruled” or a similar verdict, simply declare it and ask for justice:  

Thank You, Mighty Judge, that the cases are dismissed/overruled. Where cases have been overruled or dismissed, I ask that You bring justice. You alone know the true cost. We trust you to restore, with restitution of damages and all that has been taken or hindered by the enemy. Let any curses attached to these cases be broken, and let the blessing of God come in greater measure. 

Don’t ask for justice unless you get cases dismissed. God’s justice is why you were put into Satan’s hands because of your sin. You want to be sure that sin is removed and the cases overturned before asking for justice! Before we leave the Courts, you should be listening to the Holy Spirit during this process. Let Him guide you in what to say and ask for. 

At this point, any visions or words received should be stated and acted upon by coming into agreement and doing what you see is being done in Heaven! 

Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on Earth must be what is already forbidden in Heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on Earth must be what is already permitted in Heaven. (Matthew 18:18 AMPC) 

If you are seeing or sensing something negative, then there is something that still needs to be taken care of. This should be discussed and led by the Holy Spirit. To leave the Courts, say something like: 

As we take our leave From Your Courts, Righteous Judge, we thank You for all you have done for our Sister/Brother. In Jesus Name, Amen  

These are the basic steps for entering the Courts of Heaven and removing charges after you have received them and had an interpretation of them. 

It isn’t necessary to enter the Courts to receive victory or healing. Before the Courts of Heaven Academy existed, one of the first people our team took to the Courts had only received a minor breakthrough for a blood pressure problem. Here is her testimony: 

For many years, I was experiencing my blood pressure spiking up, which lasted up to a week. I visited the doctor and would get medication. After taking it for a week, it would subside, but I would still feel all the symptoms, and it would spike up again. I tried to eat healthy 90% of the time for my health's sake and took numerous supplements, but nothing worked for long. 

When I started doing the CoH Academy, some things started dropping off of me as I started learning God's ways. A few weeks ago, my blood pressure spiked up again, and this time, the medication was not helping, and the side effects gave me a terrible headache.  

I had to apply what I learned in the Academy; I humbly asked Holy Spirit to show me what is against me that is causing this high blood pressure so I can confess it, repent (turn from) and cover it with the blood of Jesus. A scene came up in my mind about my son when he was six months old (he is 18 now). His finger was caught in the door while walking in his baby walker, he held onto the door frame, and a strong wind came and slammed the door shut as I was trying to stop the door from slamming on his finger. I saw the whole thing and was traumatized. A piece of his finger is still missing because of this incident.  

My heart never felt the same for years. I felt like it was suspended by a thin thread, and if I was not careful, it would fall into my stomach. I could not afford to get frightened nor stressed; I stopped listening to the news and stayed away from friends and family or anything that would affect me emotionally.  

I confessed that I gave into fear because of the trauma, and every negative word that I spoke against myself and my son, I repented from speaking that way and asked the Father to cover it with the blood of Jesus. No more self-pity; this has to go, too. 

I then went to the Throne of Grace and asked the Father for grace, mercy, and wisdom for this situation. That afternoon, I felt a warmth and an unusual special peace around me, and that same evening while sitting on my bed, I felt a hand pull and fix something inside my chest on the left side. I touched my chest, and right away, the thought came to me, "you are healed.”  

I smiled and was excited. You all should have seen the big smile on my face as I said, “Thank you, Lord.” I slept like a baby that night, and when I took my BP that morning, it was 100 over 65. 

Thank you, Jesus, for shedding your blood to purchase my healing. Special thanks to the CoH Academy, Lynn, and her team, who have helped me understand how to correctly appropriate the blood of Jesus and getting results for change.  

I am watching out now for anything that would affect my soul negatively and deal with it right away. I am also hearing from Holy Spirit, and I have a wonderful testimony of receiving a chapter and a verse when I asked for it.  I am beginning to understand what it means to be in this world but not of this world because now, when I read the word of God, my understanding is opening up, and I am seeing scriptures in a new light. 

This is one of many testimonies we have received from those who have been healed by applying what they have learned in the CoH Academy, which is now available as the first four workbooks. We have come so far away from God because many Christians were never taught His ways:  

  • How to identify sin 
  • How to strengthen our spirit so we can stop walking in sin 

Though this student was a dedicated Christian, she didn’t understand enough to receive a full breakthrough in the CoH. The CoH Academy helped her to walk in God’s ways and receive healing! 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you… (Hosea 4:6 AKJV) 

The goal of the CoH Academy is to: 

  • Clear the way so that you can hear from Holy Spirit 
  • Teach you how to operate in the Courts so that your Counselor can bring you healing and restoration

Believers' Boot Camp series

Believers' Boot Camp - Volume One
Believers' Boot Camp: Volume Two


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.

Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 1

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

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 2

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.

Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 3


Our rights to appear in the Courts of Heaven have been greatly undervalued. The missing key to our authority is here. Jesus has provided the access and the Bible shows us the court procedures. When we learn to operate in our rightful place as children of the Most High, the enemy will be defeated and we will see the victory we have prayed for.

The death of Jesus freed us from the curse of the law. However, we must declare this freedom just as we must make a declaration for our salvation.

  • Can curses be passed to our children?
  • What are signs of a curse?
  • How do you get rid of one?

Every answer is backed by scripture. Come and find out how easy it is to be free!

Roadmap to Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 4



As I meditated and sought the Lord, a vision overcame me. A “Roadmap to Heaven” was deposited into my soul. We are entering a season of unparalleled access to Heaven. Jesus is calling all who are His to visit with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High.

  • What is the Secret Place?
  • How do we enter?
  • What will we find there?

The Bible holds the answers, the mystery has been revealed. As you use the map given in this book to journey to the Secret Place, discover your destiny and find the gifts the Holy Spirit will bring along the way.

The Fall of Church Leaders - Confirming Sign

Fall of Church Leaders

At the end of July the Lord sent a dream showing two things:

  1. “You need to turn your back on churches under the influence of Jezebel”
  2. “The waves south of San Francisco will break over the barriers.”

When the waves break over barriers, it is a confirming sign. I sought Him and asked why San Francisco?

Who Should Receive Charges in the Courts of Heaven

VIDEO: Receiving Charges

In the first Courts of Academy workbook: Courts of Heaven Foundations, you were placed before the Throne of Grace where Jesus is contending for you. You should be: 

  • Learning God’s ways and applying it to your life 
  • Confessing any sin that is revealed 
  • Turning from that sin 

Doing this allows Jesus to remove charges and bring restoration into your life. Who is better than the Lord to handle things in the Courts? You should take advantage of this time of gentle correction. 

The way our team receives charges in the Courts is unique. For this reason, under most circumstances, we ask that people go through the Academy before taking this step. Petitioners should go to the Courts to receive charges when:

Loss of Anointing

VIDEO: Loss of Anointing

Our Heavenly Father is compassionate and has provided for His children, even leaders who have gone astray. 

And if they are bound in fetters [of adversity] and held by cords of affliction, then He shows to them [the true character of] their deeds and their transgressions, that they have acted arrogantly [with presumption and self-sufficiency]. He also opens their ears to instruction and discipline, and commands that they return from iniquity. 

If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasantness and joy. But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword [of God’s destructive judgments], and they shall die in ignorance of true knowledge. (Job 36:8-12 AMPC) 

This is from Elihu, the one who spoke rightly about God to Job. When an attack comes upon a leader, they should seek God and find out why the door has been opened to the enemy. They must correct their mistake for the attack to be removed. If they do not change their ways, the attack will remain.

What Does "Soaking" Mean?

Have you heard the word “soaking” used to refer to time in worship? In a visit to the Secret Place, the Lord showed me what “soaking” is all about.

On Sunday, I had become so very tired in spirit and body. It felt like I was completely drained, barely able to lift up my hand. My mind was so tired, it was hard to put thoughts together. I retreated to my bed and put on my favorite worship music. 

As the melody washed over me and filled the room, my body relaxed. Usually a vision of the Secret Place would capture my thoughts, but I was too tired to even dance with the Lord. Instead I heard the soft whisper, “Just rest…”
