Items in the Courts

If you have not completed the prior classes, the information in this class may not be effectively applied to your prayer life! Please do the Courts of Heaven classes in order!

There are different items that we can submit to the Judge in the Courts of Heaven. As we have shown, while we live on this Earth, it is our words that are used in the Courts:

But I tell you, on the day of judgment men will have to give account for every idle (inoperative, non-working) word they speak. For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced. (Matthew 12:36-37 AMPC)

The way we interact in the CoH is through words we speak in faith. Jesus is our Lead Advocate; even when we don't enter into the Courts, He can use what we say in court proceedings. Our words can bring three things into the CoH:


  1. Testimony

  2. Payment

  3. Evidence


To operate in the Courts we must know God’s Word and agree with what He has said. When the enemy places charges against us in the Courts, it allows him to affect and afflict us while we are still on Earth. The Bible refers to affliction or persecution by the enemy as a curse. As Christians, can we be affected by a curse?

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13 AKJV)

The word “curse” is singular. The single curse of the Law was that you went to Hell for violating any part of the Law. This is what taking Jesus as Lord has redeemed us from. We no longer go to Hell for violating even a tiny part of the Law as the Hebrew people did.  Our sins can still give the enemy access to us and hinder us from achieving the destiny God has for us. The Bible tells us when there will be no more curses:

And there shall be no more curse… (Revelation 22:3 KJV)

This verse is after the 1000-year reign is described and the Earth is destroyed by fire. God creates a “new Earth” where there will be no more curses. Until that time, there are still curses and they work under this same principle as salvation.

That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. (Romans 10:9 AKJV)

Only the curse of the Law that would take our eternal life from us is removed when we take Jesus as Lord through confessing it with our words. We have to confess that we are turning from whatever allowed that curse to come upon us to remove it, then it can be both broken and removed by the blood of Jesus. This confession is entered as our testimony in the CoH.


Our Testimony in the CoH

What does it look like when we testify in the CoH? God is all-knowing. In Heaven, what we feel and believe on the inside is clearly seen by all. When we enter statements into evidence, the entire court will see our heart. If you do not understand or believe what you are saying, your testimony will be clearly seen as insincere or even false!

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 ESV)

The Greek word homologeō is translated “confess,” and it means much more than just stating 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, the word Lord means owner

    • We are seeing Him as our Master, and we are His servant.

  • When we confess that sin, seeing it the way He does.

    • This means turning from that sin.


We need to see sin the way God does, as detestable, we will naturally want to turn from it. For me, this means thinking of sin like a pile of dog poop. It is something we want to avoid walking into at all costs. In fact, we will go out of our way not to step in it. If we confess sin and continue to walk in that sin on a regular basis, then we have made a false confession because we really don’t really believe that the sin we have committed is all that bad.


Many people confuse confessing with repenting when they talk to God. Confessing is seeing it the way God does. We will naturally repent, or turn from that sin as we try our best to never repeat the sin again because it is detestable to us.


In Daniel chapter nine, he confessed that both he and his ancestors had sinned. He stated that he knew they were wrong and was grieved over all that they had done. He did not repent for them. How could he declare that all of Israel was turning from their sins? Daniel had no power to make anyone else turn from sin and neither do we. Christians need to update our vocabulary when we pray and know what true confession is.


Many of us use the word “rebuke” to mean “null and void.” However, according to the word of God, it means to chastise or bring low. Like Daniel, we need to “renounce” sinful actions and words. Once we renounce the wrong words we have spoken, then we can cover them with the blood of Jesus and ask that they are blotted out of all records in Heaven.


All Christians must learn to watch our words!

But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned. (Matthew 12:36-37 ESV)
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. (Proverbs 18:21 ESV)

The words “justified” and “condemned” are legal terms used in court. God’s mercy is new every day because every day is a “Day of Judgment.” This is why we need to both confess and repent before God for every word that we have said that is not according to God’s will for our life.


Our words have power. We will reap from the words we sow. We need to learn to watch our words. Phrases like “I can’t learn anything” or “I always get sick in the fall” may be used against us in Court. Any negative phrase about our health, finances, emotions, or mind should be removed from our everyday speech.


Payment for Sins

The Lord has provided both evidence and payment that can be entered into the records of the CoH: His blood.

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleans us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.. (1 John 1:7-10 AKJV)  

After we confess that we have committed a sin, the blood of Jesus is the payment to remove the charges against us. Instead of pleading guilty or not guilty, we plead the blood of Jesus. This is stating that the blood has made the payment for our sin.


Testimony as Evidence

There is a second application of the blood in the Courts that can be used in two different ways. Through our words we can enter the testimony of others as evidence into the Courts. Both the Old and New Testaments agree that innocent blood that has been spilled can “cry out” for justice and even vengeance.  

And to Jesus, the Mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood which speaks [of mercy], a better and nobler and more gracious message than the blood of Abel [which cried out for vengeance] (Hebrews 12:24 AMPC)  
And [the Lord] said, What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground. And now you are cursed by reason of the Earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s [shed] blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength; you shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the Earth [in perpetual exile, a degraded outcast]. (Genesis 4:10-12 AMPC)  

Abel’s blood cried out from the ground, and God showed up, bringing justice and vengeance for the sin of murder. Not only did He talk to Cain, but He also enacted the vengeance because the ground, which he used to make a wrong offering, was now cursed and would not bring for a good crop.


Crying out is done through words. Jesus blood is crying out for mercy. We need to come into agreement with that testimony and enter it into evidence!


Mercy Without Confession of Specific Sins  

Until we learn God's ways and are able to enter the CoH on our own, we can receive some measure of relief through a prayer for mercy. We do this by following the example of Daniel in chapter nine.


  • Learn about this in the Relief from Attacks class in the Removing Attacks course

  • Receive this prayer by scheduling a Grace and Mercy visit on the APPOINTMENTS page


The testimony of two witnesses is an established president in God's kingdom.

By the testimony of two or three witnesses must any charge and every accusing statement be sustained and confirmed. (2 Corinthians 13:1 AKJV)  

Testimony happens in court and witnesses also appear in court. Two witnesses will establish a fact in the CoH. The blood of Jesus is crying out for mercy and we can enter that testimony as evidence into the CoH. If we stand in agreement with that cry of mercy, then there are two witnesses.


I wanted to verify that the application of the blood of Jesus in this way would be effective, so I called upon the prayer team at the church. We have many seers on our team, and I wanted to see if they would be willing to test this out with me. As we applied the blood as the Lord revealed, consistently over the several weeks that followed:


  • The power of the Holy Spirit was magnified. Some people’s faces glowed with the energy of God as curses and charges were removed.

  • We took people who had received thirty or more charges back into the CoH. We brought them forward and asked the blood to testify, and then we asked if there were any additional charges. In each case, the number of charges was reduced from forty to twenty accusations!


This is a powerful thing our Lord has done. We should use His blood, to the fullest extent.


Mercy for Confessed Sins

When we are able to enter the Courts to receive and remove charges, we can cry out for mercy by coming into agreement with the statement of His blood that is crying out for mercy. This should be done after; confessing and pleading the blood.


Jesus died to set us free; freedom always comes when you are persistent in pursuing Him and learning His ways, applying them to your life.

And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He defer them and delay help on their behalf? (Luke 18:7 AMPC)

We must cry out to God for help. Our words can be used in the Courts to set us free. How do we know what we need to confess? We are the body of Christ. Ideally, a body and its parts work together. Can the hand properly function without being attached to and dependent on the arm? Without the support of the lungs, how could we speak? This is why we offer Intercession prayer, so that charges against God's people can be revealed, either inside or outside of the Courts.


Besides this application of the blood, are there other items in the Courts that we need to appropriate? Are there other places we need to go to? The Word of God will show us what we need.


Scrolls and Books in the CoH

There is much talk about scrolls, books, and other items in the Courts. Should we be asking for these in order to get results from the Just and Righteous Judge? We must hold to the Word of God and do what the Lord tells us to do.  

And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. (Ezekiel 2:9-10 KJV)
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. (Ezekiel 3:1-3 KJV) 

In the Bible, God gave scrolls to prophets several times. They were sometimes commanded to eat them and then prophesy as with Ezekiel and John in Revelation 10. In other times, such as in Zechariah 5, the scrolls brought curses upon the land. In Revelation 5, God had a scroll that needed to be opened by someone with special authority: 

And I saw a strong angel announcing in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll? And [who is entitled and deserves and is morally fit] to break its seals?” And no one in Heaven or on Earth or under the Earth [in the realm of the dead, Hades] was able to open the scroll or to take a [single] look at its contents. And I wept audibly and bitterly because no one was found fit to open the scroll or to inspect it.
Then one of the elders [of the Heavenly Sanhedrin] said to me, “Stop weeping! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root (Source) of David, has won (has overcome and conquered)! He can open the scroll and break its seven seals!” (Revelation 5:2-5 AMPC)

The seals of Revelation have to be broken before the trumpets can announce the cup of wrath that will be poured out. Only one person is qualified, Jesus. He lived the perfect life of obedience to God and was obedient even unto death. Because of this, He has been given all authority in Heaven and Earth. This enables Him to open the scroll that will begin the time of Tribulation.


There are also books in Heaven, but often the words “books” and “scrolls” are frequently used interchangeably.

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, Thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:7-8 KJV)

The Hebrew word translated as “book” is sēp̄er (say’-fer) which can be used for scroll, book, or any other type of written document. However, this word is translated, every time a scroll or book from Heaven is mentioned, there is a common denominator: God or one of His messengers give the scroll as they see fit. There is no example in the Bible of someone asking for a scroll.


Would you presume to demand a special writ of authority from the leader of your nation? Why would you presume to ask God for one? The CoH is not like McDonalds where you place your order and God fulfills your requests. God is Sovereign. He is the Judge and knows what you need. Trust that He will equip you for the work of His Kingdom.


The Holy Spirit is your Counselor.


  • If something needs to be said, He will tell you what it is

  • If you receive a scroll, do as the Holy Spirit leads you

    • read it out loud so that God’s judgment is proclaimed upon the Earth

    • take it within your spiritual body if it applies to you

    • there may be another action the Holy Spirit reveals


It is as simple as that. Rest in the hands of Jesus, your Advocate and the Holy Spirit, your Counselor.


Court of Scribes

While there is ample proof of the CoH within the scriptures, I see no mention of this place in the Bible. Perhaps if you add much to what is said, you can infer that such a place exists, and perhaps it does. However, I don’t believe we need to be concerned about it. Around the time I learned about this teaching, I was given a dream from God:


I was in a busy metropolis. Many people greeted us as we traveled to a valley. In the valley, there was a reflection of the moon. The crescent shape had a cartoon face projected upon it.


Another sister came in and started talking about the valley with the moon. “Did you hear about that place? They have all this cool stuff.”


I replied hesitantly, “Ah, I’d be careful with what they are doing. I’m not so sure it is all real.”


Excitedly, she reassured me, “Oh no, of course it is. Don’t you see it? Of course, it is real!”


My sister left and I wandered along until I arrived at the house that was on the side of the mountain above the valley. Upon entering the house, I addressed the occupants. “I know you have a projector that you are using to add to the reflection of the moon so the face can be more clearly seen. Where is it?”


Unabashed, the woman replied, “Oh yes, we have it over here. We just want people to be able to understand it better, to be clear about what they are seeing.”


I proclaimed, “No! You don’t need to do that. What you are doing is adding to the TRUE moon, which is wrong.” I left and then warned my sister about it.


The sun is the Son of God. The moon is the Church which reflects the Son which should be seen upon this Earth. Light from the sun is revealing something from the sun to Earth by the moon. The reflection can be seen as a revelation of God because light of the sun is revealing something from the sun to the Earth via the moon. God made it very clear that we do not need to add anything to His revelation to make it more understandable. If it isn’t in the Word of God in multiple scriptures, we do not need to add information about it to help others see it clearly.


We know that God is Judge, Jesus is our Advocate, and the Holy Spirit is our Counselor. Anything else we need to know or do, our Counselor will make it clear to us at that time. We don't need to operate anywhere else.


As I prepared for a fellowship meeting, I had a vision of what has occurred in Heaven with the blood of Jesus:


Jesus walked into the Throne room where God resides. He carried a bowl of His blood with Him. An ornate chair sat beside God with angels stationed beside it. Jesus sprinkled the chair with His blood. From this place, waves of energy were released. I could feel those waves of energy hit me as I watched them flow outward.


The Throne Room of God is the “Holy of Holies.” The Book of Hebrews speaks about this:

Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost thus signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: (Hebrews 9:6-8 AKJV)
But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:11-14 AKJV)

What was done in the Old Testament with the Hebrew priests was but a foreshadow of what our Lord would do. He is the only Begotten Son of God who lived a perfect life. Having walked perfectly before God, Jesus gave that life for us as a sacrifice for our sins. 

Therefore He is the Mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. For where a will is involved, the death of the one who made it must be established. For a will takes effect only at death, since it is not in force as long as the one who made it is alive. Therefore not even the first covenant was inaugurated without blood. For when every commandment of the law had been declared by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, “This is the blood of the covenant that God commanded for you.” And in the same way he sprinkled with the blood both the tent and all the vessels used in worship. Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 9:15-22 ESV)

All things were purged from sin with blood when they were dedicated to God. The blood of Jesus is what purifies us from sin when we dedicate our lives to God.

It was, therefore, necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into Heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest enters into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world has He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and to them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin to salvation. (Hebrews 9:23-28 AKJV)

Because the blood of Jesus is perfect, He only needed to offer it once. It is now in Heaven as the eternal sacrifice for all sin. We can approach God in the “Holy of Holies” because our High Priest, Jesus has made the way. He is the way, the truth, and life (John 14:6) for those who will seek Him.


This is what the Lord wants us to focus on. Knowing about the CoH can help us understand how and when to appropriate the greatest gift, His blood. But we should never forget that seeking God, seeking our High Priest in the Holy of Holies has been paid for by His sacrifice! That should always be our goal: to draw close to God and be in His presence.


When we first began going into the CoH in 2018, the Lord said it was a time of training. I thought it meant we were learning how to operate in the Courts to obtain victory. It is now abundantly clear that by learning about the Courts, we know how to receive from our Lord through the mercy of His blood. Learn more about this in the Relief from Attacks course.
