Guides in the Courts

There is a difference between going to the Courts for yourself or your loved ones and acting as a Guide in the Courts of Heaven. Any Christian can go boldly before the Throne of Grace and any Christian can enter the Courts on behalf of themselves or family members. Doing this will remove you from the Throne of Grace because you are declaring that you are a mature Christian who knows God's ways. The Throne of Grace is for those who are still learning.

We are the body of Christ. What good is a body if the parts don’t work together? We need to be connected so that the gifts of the Holy Spirit can be used to help one another. A Seer should be present if entering the CoH. Often that person will act as a Guide as well. Two mature Christians should be present at every intercession to confirm that Seer should be present the Lord wants us to enter into the Courts.

We will refer to a Guide in these teachings as someone who is going to the Courts on behalf of others. The Guide has the responsibility of leading the prayer: this is more than intercession for others. You may be called upon by the Holy Spirit to bring correction.

My brothers, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. (James 3:1 AKJV)
Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly (James 3:1 NIV)

As a Guide in the Courts, you are bringing corrections and teachings to others. Consequences for sin may be harsher. This is a job for a mature, well-grounded Christian who is ready to run to the Courts at the first sign of an attack of the enemy. Guiding others in the CoH is for those who are elders as defined by the following scriptures:

  • Not shifty and double-talkers but sincere in what they say.

  • Not given to much wine.

  • Not greedy for base gain by craving wealth and resorting to ignoble and dishonest methods of getting it.

  • Be knowledgeable of God's ways, especially in the Courts.

  • Must endure a time of testing.

  • Not gossipers or flighty, but temperate and self-controlled, thoroughly trustworthy in all things.

  • Have one spouse.

  • Manage their children and their own finances well and has no trouble in their finances.

In addition to these qualifications, if they are found to be blameless and beyond reproach, they are ready to begin praying for others (1 Timothy 3:8-12). Before you begin guiding others in Court visits, either with Agape CF or on your own, you should look at the list and make sure you are ready for the responsibility that comes with this position in the Kingdom of Heaven.

A guide must:

  • Walk in the fruit of the Spirit.

  • Be led by the Holy Spirit, especially in prayer.

  • Be well-grounded in what the Word of God says about their authority.

  • Be comfortable directing others.

There is a great need for mature Christians in the body of Christ. We hope that the classes in the Academy will help you grow in that direction! As a Guide, you will be announcing what you see coming from God's Throne:

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them... (Revelation 20:4 AKJV)

The Greek word thronos is translated simply “thrones.” Looking at Theyer's Greek Lexicon we see that it can refer to many seats of power. One of these being the thrones of elders. The phrase “judgment was given to them...”, is translated in the Amplified Version as, “and sitting on them were those to whom authority to act as judges and to pass sentence was entrusted...” The lexicon states, giving decrees of judgment.

​This is what guides in the Courts are doing. When you are regularly “guiding” others, you are giving corrections and decreeing what the Holy Spirit reveals so that God's mercy can come into the lives of those you are helping in the Courts. Only those of an “elder” maturity level should help guide others to the Courts on a regular basis. Once you become a Guide, here is what is expected of you:

Thus said the LORD of hosts; If you will walk in My ways, and if you will keep My charge, then you shall also judge My house, and shall also keep My courts, and I will give you places to walk among these that stand by. (Zechariah 3:7 AKJV)

A Guide does not reside before the Throne of Grace, they reside in the Courts of Judgment. As a mature Christian, they must be ready to receive charges and turn from sin at any time.

Revealing Charges

The charges we receive in the Courts are for correction, so people know what sins are against them. These sins allow the enemy to build a legal case against us, which gives him authority to attack us. The correction allows for people to repent from their sins so the cases can be dismissed. This is spoken about in the Word of God:

Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. (Galatians 6:1 AKJV)

This is what we do in the Courts of Heaven. We rely on the Holy Spirit to reveal what sin the enemy is using to have access to our brothers and sisters. We speak what we see in kindness and compassion. You may be the person God wants to use to correct someone:

My son, do not despise or shrink from the chastening of the Lord [His correction by punishment or by subjection to suffering or trial]; neither be weary of or impatient about or loathe or abhor His reproof, for whom the Lord loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. (Proverbs 3:11-12 AMPC)
For the Lord disciplines the one He loves, and chastises every son whom He receives... (Hebrews 12:6 ESV)

The Lord is revealing charges against us because He loves us. We should present those charges with kindness and love.

Gifts Necessary for Guides

The gifts of the Spirit are helpful when operating in the Courts but receiving them is not always instantaneous; it can happen as we continue to walk with the Lord. Many of us didn’t see or hear much at all when we first started going to the Courts, but our gifts blossomed as we attended more and more visits.

I entered into the CoH for several months before receiving my first word or vision. As a guide, I led appointments with gentle nudges from the Holy Spirit. Others would receive words which I would present to the petitioner and help them understand how they applied to their life.

It is God who gives us what we need to function in our destiny with Him. If you don’t feel like you are hearing from the Holy Spirit, prayerfully consider reading the very short book “Why Doesn’t God Speak to Me?” It may help you understand how He is speaking to you.​ You should not enter the Courts until you can hear from the Holy Spirit or are with someone who can.

Dangers of Praying in Agreement

Again I say to you, That if two of you shall agree on Earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in Heaven. (Matthew 18:19 AKJV)

Many Christians quote this verse as they pray together. We sit with heads bowed, sometimes silently, sometimes with an “amen” to declare our agreement with what has been said in prayer. If God gave any two individuals whatever they agreed upon, it would be chaos. Think about it in terms of your local government:

Let’s say two people ask in prayer to have a president removed from office, and another two decide they don’t like other heads of state and their positions on issues. After a time, we might conceivably run out of civil servants to preside over local and national governments. In fact, there may NEVER be a leader that every citizen likes. No one would last in a government office long if God said yes to the prayer of agreement by two people and consequently removed a leader with whom they disagreed.

Reading a bit further in the Bible, you find there is a qualifying statement:

And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us… (1 John 5:14 KJV)

Now this makes sense: God has a plan! When we search His word and listen to the Holy Spirit, then we know His ways and what He wants. Those are the prayers that get heard by God and then answered. Are there any consequences for NOT praying in alignment with God? The Bible tells us this about Satan:

...which accused them before our God day and night… (Revelation 12:10 AKJV)

We have an enemy who likes to attack us; where does Satan do this accusing? The Greek word for accused is katēgoros, meaning a complainant at law; someone who places charges against us in the Courts of Heaven. This means if we are making demands and decrees that are not according to God’s will, we are in violation of what God told us to do. Recent experiences in the Courts of Heaven have shown the reality of the danger of joining a prayer that the Holy Spirit has not authorized or approved. (see the Removing Attacks course: Common Reasons for Attacks)

In one particular prayer call, the Guide led the prayer to enter the Courts. After presenting the petitioner, they asked for charges, and all waited to see and hear what the Holy Spirit (our Counselor) revealed. A few petitioners had been enthusiastic and had begun making declarations concerning healing or financial restitution, or sometimes even vengeance. I never thought much of this until one particular visit to the Courts:

Abby was 90 years old and had a plethora of reasons to visit the Courts. When the first round of charges was dismissed, she began to declare that her heart was healed and made whole. Though I didn’t receive confirmation from the Holy Spirit saying it was so, I agreed with her, as did the two other seers with me.

The following day, my nose became stuffed up. “I wonder if I caught Abby’s cold,” I thought. She had been sick for the last week with the full-blown flu! Immediately I rebuked that thought because I knew sickness and disease has no right to me, yet it only got worse. By the next day, I was exhausted, unable to breathe, and feeling like I was going to vomit. Knowing something was off, I asked the Lord where I might have transgressed. Getting no answer, as best I could, I fulfilled my responsibilities from my bed.

Abby had not experienced a breakthrough, so we took her to the Courts once more. While the others were receiving more charges, I had a vision:

A demon was before the desk of the Accuser on the left side of the Judge (I could only see the immense podium stretching upwards). He looked like the cartoon figure of the Tasmanian Devil; swirling darkness with lightning bolts arcing out of his two sides. This was a first, a demon with lightning…

“Holy Spirit, what does that mean?” I asked.

“It is the demon that is affecting the electrical system of her heart,” came the soft thought of my Counselor. I also saw a tiny, imp-sized demon and a giant demon.

We, the seers, were finished receiving charges, so we proceeded:

After I shared the vision, one of the seers asked if that giant could have been a principality demon (usually big in size). This prompted a memory from the petitioner; Abby suddenly remembered that she had taken authority over principalities.

One of the other seers had received two Hindu gods, “Shambala” and “Mandala,” which we first had to look up online. Abby had been troubled for several months about what was being called “Holy Yoga” at her church. Here in the Courts, she suddenly recalled that she had done yoga in her earlier years. This is what the Holy Spirit does as our Counselor.

** A note about yoga: it is an ancient discipline and practice based in the Hindu religion. Yogic poses are designed as worship to their gods, a means of asking them to come into you. Putting “holy” in front of the name and playing Christian music does not make it so. Can you meditate in the Buddhist fashion and call it “Holy Buddhism,” thus making it okay?

No examples exist of God ever allowing His people to use anything even remotely associated with other religions. In fact, He had His people wipe out entire cities so that they wouldn’t be tempted to follow other religious practices. When one person, Achan, brought silver, gold, and a garment from another religion into the camp of God’s people, they were no longer able to win even minor battles until they removed those items. (Joshua 7)

Back to the Courts: The Holy Spirit put the pieces of this puzzle together, “The two smaller demons are the gods who attached themselves to Abby during yoga. The big demon is the principality she had taken unauthorized authority over by declaring her healing before the charges had been cleared. This created the rest of the bogus or counterfeit charges because of the illegal attack.”

Abby confessed, repented, and pled the blood over these actions. After asking the Judge to dismiss the charges for lack of evidence, the Holy Spirit gave the go-ahead to declare the healing of her heart.

After I hung up the phone, my nose cleared, my stomach settled, and my tiredness ended; I felt 100% better. That caught my attention. Thinking back, I recalled that the symptoms started after taking Abby to the Courts and our actions there. This was the answer to my question, where had I gone wrong? Wanting to verify what was happening, I called the others who had gone to the Courts with Abby to see if they had come under attack in the last few days.

  • Neither seers nor the guide felt the Holy Spirit led them to declare healing in the first appointment.

  • One seer had experienced overwhelming tiredness.

  • The other seer had a cold and cough since that day and contracted the same flu symptoms Abby had.

The Holy Spirit spoke strongly: because we agreed with the declaration of healing when a demon had legal rights to afflict Abby’s heart, our team had tried to declare something illegal in the Courts of Heaven. The enemy was allowed a counterattack.

As we entered the Courts and confessed our sins before the Judge, one of the seers present recalled all the times she joined in prayers as an intercessor when the Holy Spirit hadn’t really told her to do so. She felt a powerful witness from Him as she repented for these actions. By confessing the wrongness of our actions, our team received relief instantly from every symptom, and Abby’s heart has been healed since that visit to the Courts.

Now that we know there is an Accuser in the Courts leveling charges against us, we need to depend on the Holy Spirit to let us know which prayers to pray. When we agree with a wrong prayer, we are guilty by association. This allows a counterattack from the enemy, what we refer to as backlash.

If someone is guiding you in the prayer, especially in the Courts of Heaven, you need to let them lead; they will be held responsible for what is said. The seers present need to speak up if they receive anything. Though their consequences are less, they may still experience an attack.
