Unveiling the Truth about Entering the Courts of Heaven Pt. 1

We’re diving into how to explore the profound journey of entering the courts of heaven along with Biblical support for this spiritual dimension of God’s kingdom.

Many Christians are not seeking victory in critical areas of their life. They know and believe the thousands of promises in the Bible about God’s provisions for them. They’ve even received prophetic words about what God wants them to do and where He wants them to go but they have not been able to make ANY progress, which can be beyond frustrating.

In this series of The Purpose Collective Podcast we’re exploring a technology of heaven called The Courts of Heaven that provides insight on what’s happening from a spiritual perspective that is holding things up for you and how to get breakthroughs by taking the devil to court. You don’t want to miss ANY of this.

There is A LOT of controversy about it because 1) the Bible does not use the term Courts of Heaven, 2) Jesus didn’t teach on it which you’ll see that he couldn’t because he hadn’t been crucified so we didn’t have the access or the authority to stand in court against the devil, and 3) because of people’s understanding of the finished work of the cross.

But when she told me what she heard from God about me doing it, my spirit grabbed ahold of it immediately. Immediately, because when I;m studying the Bible and I’m looking at the Hebrew and Greek words the Bible uses before the words are translated to English, I would often see legal terminology.

Statutes and ordinances

There’s a verse in the book of Joshua that talks about establishing statutes and ordinances which are laws. It says, “On that day Joshua made a covenant for the people at Shechem and established a statute and ordinance for them.” (Joshua 24:25)

Judges

There are verses in Deuteronomy that outline how to appoint judges and other officials.

It starts with Deuteronomy 16:18; 20 and it says, “Appoint judges and officials for your tribes in all your towns the Lord your God is giving you. They are to judge the people with righteous judgment. 20 Pursue justice and justice alone, so that you will live and possess the land the Lord your God is giving you.”

Witnesses

Then there are many scriptures about witnesses. One says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Deuteronomy 30:19a. And get this, the Hebrew word that we translated into the English word witness, also means testimony.

My mind immediately goes to, well, where is this testimony being given? Where is this testimony going forth? Because testimony is given in legal proceedings… it’s given in court. And this scripture says Heaven can be a witness, so this isn’t just an Earthly concept.

But there is another scripture that references the concept of witness and testimony. It’s Joshua 24:27 and that verse says, “And Joshua said to all the people, “You see this stone—it will be a witness against us, for it has heard all the words the Lord said to us, and it will be a witness against you, so that you will not deny your God.” Listen, even the stone is testifying, ok?

Judgment

But there’s more. I would see the word judgment in the Bible A LOT. I’m already predisposed to see the word judgment and think court because I’m a lawyer and I’m used to judges entering judgments. But, when you look at the Hebrew word that we get that English word judgment from (see Isaiah 54:17 – mispat) it means “act of deciding a case.”

So we have cases, judgments, judges, witnesses, AND laws. But here is what really did it for me. The word advocate.

Advocate

I remember seeing the word advocate used to describe Jesus in the New Testament, so I looked up the Greek definition for the word and what I found was so shocking to me.

The Greek word used for advocate means “one who pleads another’s cause before a judge; counsel for defense; it also means advocate.” Now we know, that Jesus is not about to stand in a man-made court in front of a human judge to plead our case. So where is the court that He’s pleading our cause in? Where is He defending us?

So now you see why I was so quick to grab hold of it when I was approached about the Courts of Heaven.

laws, rules, and ordinances...

The kingdom of God is built on laws, rules, and ordinances. There aren’t many things on the earth that did not first originate in heaven or in the spirit realm.

  • Natural laws – created so that there would be order
    • Speeding
    • Robbery
    • Murder
  • Spiritual laws
    • Ten commandments
    • The law of sowing and reaping
    • God cannot lie
Wherever there is a law...

…know that there is a court that enforces the law and renders judgments when that law is violated. The Cross was the greatest legal transaction of history. It annihilated the satan and his works. The technology we have to enforce this legal transaction and all of the laws associated with it, is the Courts of Heaven.

Where is the concept of Courts of Heaven in the Bible

  • Psalms 82:1
    • “God presides over heaven’s court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings”
  • Daniel 7:10; 21-22
    • I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire; A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated [convened], And the books were opened
    • I was watching; and the same horn [Satan] was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

What Are the Courts of Heaven?

  • It is where God stands in divine assembly and pronounced judgment among the gods (see Psalm 82:1)
  • Purpose of the COH is to apply the blood of Jesus to our issue and receive a judgment against satan from God as Judge
    • The blood redeems us and revokes the reach of the iniquity on our bloodline
  • Court is available to whoever will believe God and move in faith
  • “I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.” Daniel 7:21

Why Go to the Court

  • Believers can go to get relief from demonic assault based on the legal claims of the devil
  • If your prayers are not being answered, then there is a reason. The reason that prayer that is in agreement with the word of God goes unanswered is because something legal is resisting you in the spirit world.
  • The COH are designed to take Satan and his forces before the bench of Heaven and see everything that Jesus has done be set in place against them!
  • A verdict rendered (the finished work of the cross) but not executed into place has no power
  • Verdict of the cross is not executed. A verdict not executed into place has no power. The activity before the COH allows the fullness of Jesus’ work on our behalf to become a reality. We are activating, implementing, and executing the verdict on Calvary into full operation
