A New Day Has Dawned


VIDEO: A New Day Has Dawned

The last month had been a challenging one. During prayer, it seemed I had to fight to focus on the Lord. There was so much going on, so many world-changing events happening so soon, it was hard to still my thoughts. Every small open door seemed to bring attack after attack. I’d close one and have a few days of peace, only to have something else hit me. 

When my husband suggested going hunting at the cabin, I thought I’d have extra prayer time to reconnect with the Lord while he went deer hunting. The remote location didn’t help to still my thoughts; I still struggled to see the Lord clearly.

A gentle nudge from the Holy Spirit led me to pray in the heavenly language in between singing praises and silent meditation. I did this for two days with no appreciable results. Then, on the third day after I prayed in the heavenly language, I found myself dancing with the Lord in the Secret Place.

Communion: The Heart that Communes with the Lord

VIDEO: The Heart that Communes with the Lord

Psalm 15

Lord, who shall dwell [temporarily] in Your tabernacle? Who shall dwell [permanently] on Your holy hill?  He who walks and lives uprightly and blamelessly, who works rightness and justice and speaks and thinks the truth in his heart. (Psalm 15:1-2 AMPC)

A tent served as a sanctuary during the Exodus until the Temple was built. The tabernacle was a tent that enclosed the Ark of the Covenant. It was the place where God lived among the people and where people went to meet with the Lord. Later, Zion became known as the holy hill of the Lord.

Tribulation Update

VIDEO: Tribulation Update

And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things said he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come on you. (Revelation 3:1-3 AKJV)

Jesus admonished the Pharisees for not knowing the season they were in and through the Apostle John, He corrects one of the churches in a similar manner. We should know the current season we are in. We created a “Tribulation Timeline” after the Lord guided us through the books of Revelation and Daniel beginning with what He said about His return in Matthew 24. A pattern in tetrad and trios of blood moons indicated something would begin this year, September 19-20, 2022.

God's Way Prophecy

VIDEO: Confirmation Removal of Leaders

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) 

Israel’s desire was to have the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem. However, when they went to retrieve it, they placed it on a cart instead of having the Levites carry it on poles. They didn’t worship Him in the way He had shown them and because of that, one man died as the Lord “broke out” against them.  

The Lord told me 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.”

Higher Levels

VIDEO: Higher Levels

The Throne of Grace 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 different levels at the Courts of Heaven? 
  • What do we need to do to operate in the Courts with more authority? 

Just like court systems across the world, there are different levels as to what we can accomplish through the Courts in Heaven. If you have been called to a specific office in the Body of Christ, that will be the first thing that determines what you can or cannot do. A prophet is the mouthpiece of God and their words hold more weight than someone who isn’t. There is great power in the words of anointed people. Think about what the Lord said to Jeremiah:

What Must be Freely Given?


VIDEO: What Must be Freely Given?

We know that God has instructed through the Holy Spirit that everything Agape Christian Fellowship provides is to be freely given, because this is His way. One of the hardest teachings we come across as we do the Courts of Heaven (CoH) Academy is the challenge to separate ourselves from a global church system where the ‘normal’ these days is to charge upfront for what belongs to and comes from God. 

This includes: 

  • Copyright worship music 
  • Teachings and revelation, including seats in a conference, and classes
  • Prayer, counselling, and personal ministry

Celebrating Pentecost


VIDEO: How to Celebrate Pentecost 

Christians are those who are committed to Jesus as their Lord. God’s people are the nation of Israel, those who are Jewish by birth or marriage. God created a covenant, or “testament” with Israel which is the Old Testament. Christians have a New Covenant with God through Jesus. It may be labeled as “old”, but it is still relevant to our relationship with our Heavenly Father because God is always the same. Much of what Israel went through will apply to us.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)

We receive correction so that we stay on the right path with God. Looking at those who walked with God before Jesus will help us know what our Father expects of us. Traditions outlined in the Old Testament will still have meaning for Christians:

Conviction, Correction, and Condemnation

VIDEO: Conviction, Correction, and Condemnation

As Christians, we are called to repentance, which means to turn from sin. John the Baptist preached repentance and we are to see sin as something horrible that we need to turn from. 

John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness (desert), preaching a baptism [obligating] repentance (a change of one’s mind for the better, heartily amending one’s ways, with abhorrence of his past sins) in order to obtain forgiveness of and release from sins. (Mark 1:4 AMPC)

Bear fruits that are deserving and consistent with [your] repentance [that is, conduct worthy of a heart changed, a heart abhorring sin]... (Luke 3:8 AMPC)

Unanswered Prayers

VIDEO: Unanswered Prayers

At a recent visit with the Lord in the Secret Place, He looked a bit different as I approached Him. His chin rested on His chest and instead of moving in time to the music, He remained as still as a stone. The mental image in my mind was so odd that I immediately tested the vision by asking, “Do you confess that Jesus the Christ has come in the flesh?”  

The reply was the same voice He always uses, “Yes, I do because it is Me. Does something seem wrong to thee?” 

I replied, “Yes, it does! You are still as a stone, My Love.”  

Jesus didn’t reply, but I was unwilling to leave until I knew what was going on. Instead of attempting to dance with Him as usual, I stepped inside of Him. His image overshadowed mine as I worshiped Him for a while.  

“My Love,” I finally said, “I will not leave here until I know what is going on. Why are You so still and stony?”

The Two Witnesses

VIDEO: The Two Witnesses (New Testament Scriptures with Chapter 11:11)

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. (Malachi 4:5 AMPC)

Before Jesus made His official debut, God sent a “Witness” to prepare the world. The Israelites were expecting Elijah to come from Heaven and prepare the way. The Encyclopedia Britannica speaks about how Israel looks at this event:

The fifth ceremonial cup of wine poured during the family Seder dinner on Passover (Pesa). It is left untouched in honor of Elijah, who, according to tradition, will arrive one day as an unknown guest to herald the advent of the Messiah. During the Seder dinner, biblical verses are read while the door is briefly opened to welcome Elijah, who, it is further said, will resolve all controversial questions connected with the Law.

Passover, Easter and Good Friday


Good Friday is a time when most Christians acknowledge the crucifixion of Jesus and Easter is when we celebrate His resurrection. In truth, these modern holidays have little to do with the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, except for the fact that Jesus rose on the first day of the Jewish week which was on a Sunday, for that particular year. Our Lord was not crucified on Friday, as most people believe.

Jesus was Jewish and many forget that Israel doesn’t look at months or even days as we do. They have their own lunisolar calendar that is driven by the cycle of the moon and balanced by the seasons of the solar year. For this reason, Jewish feasts, such as Passover, can occur on a variety of Gregorian dates. Some years it may begin on the Sabbath; while others will begin on a different day. Passover began on a Wednesday night the year our Lord died. Walking through the accounts of His capture, crucifixion, and resurrection will prove the day Passover began and when Jesus was crucified.

Establishing the Courts of Heaven

 


Creation reveals who our Creator is (Romans 1:20). Scientists have discovered that matter is organized and beautifully choreographed far past the atomic level. When we pass from this life to the next we won’t be set free to wander about, flying through the clouds doing whatever we please. This would be very disorganized and result in chaos. It is not God’s way. He is orderly. In the second verse of the bible, we begin learning about our Creator’s opinion considering organization.

And the Earth was without form and void… (Genesis 1:2 AKJV)

The Hebrew word translated “without form” is tohuw, which means formless, a place of chaos and confusion. The word “void” in Hebrew is bohuw and means an indistinguishable ruin. Jewish mothers often refer to a messy teenager’s room as a “Tohuw ‘eth bohuw,” meaning a disorderly, chaotic ruin. This state of the Earth referred to in Genesis was not acceptable to God who began establishing order from the chaos.

New Jerusalem

VIDEO: New Jerusalem

And I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth: for the first Heaven and the first Earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:1-2 AKJV)

The First Heaven is widely accepted as the spirit realm that surrounds the Earth. This is stating that the Earth and the atmosphere and even where it contacts the spirit realm will be gone. When we “pass away” if we are Christians, we enter the Third Heaven where God lives.

The word “coming down” is translated from the Greek word katabainō which can mean “of celestial beings coming down to Earth.” Even though the language says “coming down” could it be possible that Heaven’s atmosphere is enveloping Earth? From Earth’s perspective, it would seem like it was descending, but it may actually be our planet moving into the realm of the Third Heaven where God dwells.

Rose Ceremony in the Secret Place

VIDEO: Rose Ceremony in the Secret Place

The Holy Spirit has been encouraging me to worship God in a unique way. Worship music fills the room as I crochet. My hands are busy with the simple task while my heart and mind worship the Lord.  Last week, when I worshiped this way, I had one of the most unique encounters with Jesus when He strengthened my spiritual body. 

However, since that time I had discovered why the enemy was allowed to attack my health lately. I had repented for letting my words come out without love, but the damage had been done to those closest to me. 

Stirring Up Our Desire

 

Stirring Up Our Desire

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.” (Psalm 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.

The Bride & the 1,000 Year Reign

The Bride

After God’s wrath and the fall of Babylon, we see a wonderful sight in Heaven!

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunder, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigns.

Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife has made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. (Revelation 19:6-8 AKJV)

It is celebration time in Heaven as the long-awaited ceremony takes place. We must know how God’s people conducted marriages in biblical times to fully understand what is happening at the marriage supper.

Receiving Strength in the Secret Place

VIDEO: Strength in the Secret Place

Even though the week wasn’t over, it had been a hard one. Two days before teaching about discernment, the Lord was kind enough to bring a correction that will help many of us avoid the traps of the enemy when receiving discernment from the Holy Spirit. I had been under attack from the enemy for a while and couldn’t find the cause.  At one point I literally felt blows to my spirit man. When the situation was resolved, I felt lighter, surrounded by a peace that I didn’t know had diminished until the fullness of it returned. When I look back now, I can see the warning and information given by the Lord when applied to this correction… as they say, “Hindsight is 20/20.”

Why Wrath Comes

God's Warnings

We began by establishing a timeline using what Jesus said about Daniel’s prophecy that is connected to His second coming. In order to place the seals and trumpets in Revelation within this timeline, it was necessary to begin by looking at these prophecies: 

  • The World - Revelation 11 
  • Israel - Revelation 12 
  • Satan - Revelation 13

Each one of these chapters describes events that will take place in Daniel’s Week. The description is given right before the sixth trumpet which we now know happens after that Week ends, and includes the seventh trumpet which is when the Bride of Christ will be removed from the Earth. It is a “new prophecy” which means God is adding to what He had previously described.

The Fall of Babylon

VIDEO: The Fall of Babylon

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying to me, Come here; I will show to you the judgment of the great whore that sits on many waters: With whom the kings of the Earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication… (Revelation 17:1-2 AKJV)

This is mentioned right after the wrath is poured out. The angels who had the vials of wrath are mentioned, so we know this event happens after God’s wrath. A whore is someone who is unfaithful to God and His ways. A vivid description is given of the “woman.”

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. (Revelation 17:4 AKJV) 

Vials of Wrath in Revelation

 
VIDEO: Vials of Wrath in Revelation

And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God on the Earth. (Revelation 16:1 AKJV)

The Greek word phialē (fee-al’-ay) describes a broad shallow cup. Bowl of wrath would probably be a more appropriate word. How long will this wrath last? We know that... 

  • There are 12 years left after the Tribulation.
  • God doesn’t count years when His people are not in their land. 
  • Jesus said the time would be cut short, lest all mankind be wiped out.

Godly Woman

by Denise Little
Godly Woman

As a Christian Believer, one must: 

  • Resist and overcome the pull of the world that rages against the things of Almighty God by living a life contrary to the world’s ways of doing things  (godless society). 
  • View life from a heavenly perspective (the way He sees it). 

Women of God should have a God-centered perspective of the world by viewing everything from this vantage point. Unlearning incorrect information may take some time because of the persistent barrage of misinformation that continues to intertwine itself into the culture of today, but it can be done.
