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 says about old wineskin?
- What does it mean to be an old wineskin?
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.

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:

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.”

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, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. (Jude 1:20–21 NIV)
Throughout the New Testament, there is mention of “praying in the Spirit” which is the same as “an unknown tongue.” Dr. Andrew B. Newberg compared brain scans of praying Buddhist monks and Franciscan nuns with 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 others who were praying in a more traditional way had normal activity for one who is speaking in the frontal lobe where the “language center” is located. Even those who uttered gibberish showed activity in this part of the brain. This means that when people were “praying in the Spirit” it wasn’t coming from their own mind.

“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.

There is a distinction between “hosts of Heaven” and “angels.” When the Bible uses the term “host” it is a female word. When it uses “angels” there is a male connotation to the word. For the purpose of the workbook we are using the term “Heavenly hosts” to refer to all of God’s servants in Heaven, as does most of the Christian community.
What are our rights concerning God’s servants? Knowing the boundaries will keep us out of trouble. Stepping outside our authority may limit what authority we have.

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.
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.
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!

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 NKJV)
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 accounts of the creation of mankind.

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)
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 we have a spirit, soul and body but not too many 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.

When our Facebook group began, it was 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 the document was missing!
“The enemy must be in our midst… It seems we are under attack!” I said. I’ve had the Holy Spirit send me interesting messages and confirmation on my computer before… (See that story, CLICK HERE) the Holy Spirit brought me up short and I amended my declaration. “we need to pray for wisdom and determine who is behind this.”
In my head I thought, “If this is you, Holy Spirit, then the person who deleted this file should step forward when I post about it being missing…” If this was a malicious attack, the person would hide. God works in the open, so if this was Him, there would be truth and honesty. The group prayed in agreement for God to give wisdom concerning this matter.

Dangers of Wrong Agreement with Q & A
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 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 was said about those looking to make a profit off 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 given with the above scripture:
Monday, September 14, 2020
In the Courts of Heaven Academy, you have learned how and when to enter the Courts to receive the charges the enemy has against you so that you can be free of his attacks. After you hear words of accusation from your Counselor, Holy Spirit, you must 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:

Fall of Church Leaders
At the end of July the Lord sent a dream showing two things:
- “You need to turn your back on churches under the influence of Jezebel”
- “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?

The Courts of Heaven are the highest place of authority over Heaven and Earth. We have access to the throne because of the blood of Jesus. While we are learning God’s ways we can reside before the Throne of Grace where the harshest attacks of the enemy are removed so that we can be free to learn. There are several factors to consider before we enter the Courts of Heaven to receive charges:
- Operation with the Spirit
- Physical Manifestations
- Spiritual Maturity
For I say, through the grace given to me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. (Romans 12:3 AKJV)
Thursday, August 20, 2020
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. (Matthew 25:13 AKJV)
Jesus is saying that all of this is about His second coming. His audience at the time had no knowledge of the “catching away,” which some Christians call the rapture. That was revealed by Paul in the first letter he wrote to the Thessalonians where he mentioned it in every chapter. This audience only knew that He would come to rule and reign forever.
God has told us that we are entering a time of correction for His church (Waves Breaking Over Barriers in San Francisco). This sign will be of great importance. Our Lord gave a parable which will identify where we are in His eternal timeline by this event.
We need to look very carefully at this short story which He used as an example of what would happen before His return.

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…”

A word from God has come forth: now is the time where His children may have to put on the armor and stand against what the enemy is trying to bring into this world. We need to look to the Word of God and see what He says about the armor of God and standing against the enemy and if we should use this to attack principalities. Paul wrote a letter to Christians in Ephesus explaining a few foundational principles and the need for the spiritual armor and what we must stand against in our lives as children of God.

Breaking Over the Barriers
It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the Lord our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way. (1 Chronicles 15:13 AMPC)
- “You need to turn your back on churches under the influence of Jezebel”
- “The waves south of San Francisco will break over the barriers.”

God’s people are told to hold several “feasts” or “festivals” for all times. The Hebrew word moadim for “feasts” literally means "appointed times." These are gatherings of God’s people to remember what He has done in the past. The feasts occurring in the spring were fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus:

- The World - Non-Christians
- The Church - All Christians also referred to as “Jews”
- Israel - Children of Israel (Jacob)

Whether you have heard it referred to as the “Rapture” or the “Catching away of the Saints,” there is a belief among many Christians that some or all of the children of God will escape the terrible calamities prophesied in the Book of Revelation. We must look to scripture to see the truth of this matter.
It is important to remember that we do not have to agree with what is said about this topic. We are saved by our relationship with Jesus as Lord, not by what we believe concerning an impending rapture. Consider this food for thought. May the Holy Spirit bring you wisdom about this topic.
As I meditated and sought the Lord before speaking about the rapture for the first time, this is what happened in the Secret Place:
Sunday, June 14, 2020
In this Psalm, David refers to the Secret Place as the “tent” of the Lord. Jesus will visit with us there, not as the Lord who reigns over Heaven and Earth, but as our beloved and our brother.
When I saw Him there last, He asked me to tell you about this realm; a place that our Heavenly Father set apart, where we can see not only Jesus, but Abba (Papa, Daddy) instead of Almighty God and the Holy Spirit, our dear Friend. In order to visit with Him in the Secret Place on a regular basis, we must “overcome” the enemy as described in Revelation. If we will:
- seek only Him
- not healing
- not provision
- not gifts
- seek just to be with Him
- in whatever way He has for us
- let all else fall aside and fade, focus on Him and Him alone
Then He shall be found, “I long to be with My bride, not as King, but as beloved, here in the Secret Place”

The Future of the Church
Before I began studying the churches in the Book of Revelation, the Lord revealed something to me in the Secret Place. The visit with Him began like many others, with us dancing in the gazebo of the Secret Place. With great excitement, He took me by the hand and said, “I have something I want to show you!”
We ran into the forest surrounding the meadow where the tiny table for tea sits. Deep into the forest the Lord led me into a cave. It took seconds for my eyes to adjust to the glowing light on the cave walls. Jesus led me deeper and deeper into smaller and smaller jagged-walled caverns until we were stooping over, traveling single-file through a narrow passageway. Despite the soft ambient light, the closing in of the walls had me feeling slightly worried as I thought, “What could possibly be exciting in this place?”

Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3 AKJV)
The Apostle John was confined to an island by the leaders of his time and wrote the Book of Revelation during his confinement. It begins with a blessing for those who hear and “keep” the things written within this book. The Greek word tereo translated “keep” means to “attend to carefully.” That is what we are doing here today.

Because God created man on the sixth day, metaphorically speaking, the number six represents man. A score is 20 years. We are told to watch for the number 666 which is a sign of the beast which is described in the rest of the chapter.
Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three score (60) and six. (Revelation 13:18)
Microsoft has received a patent number: WO2020060606. Let’s break down that number:

It was challenging to remain focused as my hair was combed and moved about. When I was distracted, the images would become blurry. The Lord led me over to the bench and as we sat together, a dozen or so fuzzy images bounced and gathered around my feet. They reminded me of the little “imp-like” demons I had seen in the past.

Recently, the local news announced that although the CoronaVirus (Covid-19) was not yet in my city or even my state, it wasn’t a matter of if, but when this deadly disease would appear. The long incubation period with no symptoms, along with the contagious nature of this flu, enables it to spread despite the in-home quarantine measures imposed.
What would you do to keep from catching this disease?There is a way to stop this virus from spreading to you and your loved ones. During a time of worship the Lord brought me into a face-to-face visit with Him. The situation with the virus was heavy upon my heart. I asked Him, “What can we do about the CoronaVirus?”
Thursday, March 12, 2020
On Sunday, I spent some time focusing on the Lord in Worship. This often opens up a visit with Him in the Secret Place. When I closed my eyes, a disturbing vision played out in my mind:
I was standing a few feet away from the Lord, watching an image of myself laughing exuberantly. The scene reminded me of the times I had seen “holy laughter.”
“What is this?” I asked the Lord as the image of me kept laughing, “Why am I laughing? I don’t feel like doing that right now.” Usually what I feel inside plays out in the visions in the Secret Place, but this vision didn’t seem to match what I felt at that moment.
Tuesday, March 3, 2020
While writing this article centered around a visit to the Secret Place, the Lord led to me 1 Corinthians 15 where Paul speaks about this life and the next to demonstrate why He was revealing our abilities in Heaven. The apostle begins in verses 37-40 with a metaphor about seeds which must die to receive their full glory, relaying it to our existence in this way:
- It is sown in corruption - it is raised in incorruption
- It is sown in dishonor - it is raised in glory
- It is sown in weakness - it is raised in power
The definition of the two topics stated as “it” are seen in verse 44:
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
