COURT ROOM OF HEAVEN

There is a court room in heaven.  The bible speaks of the judgment seat of Christ.  It is translated as the seat of a judge; a court of justice.

      (2Cor 5:10) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether good or bad.

      (Isa 9:7)  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

            I recently heard author, Robert Henderson, speak about the revelation he received from heaven about the operation of a spiritual legal system.  Having many years of experience in the legal profession, I received a greater understanding of this operation.  I believe it is important to all believers. 

            Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection is the greatest legal transaction of all history.  When He said “It is finished”, He satisfied every legal requirement for the complete redemption of man.  It is up to us as believers to take that legal verdict and execute it.  A verdict has no power unless it is executed.  A judge can render a verdict, but if there is no officer of the court to execute it into place, it accomplishes nothing.  We are the officers of the court; anointed, ordained, and authorized by the Holy Spirit to enforce the Word of God in the earth for the advancement of the Kingdom of God.  

            When speaking of prayer, Jesus told us to approach God as Father, as Friend, and as Judge.  When we enter the courts of heaven, we are to come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.  (Heb 4:16)  As we enter the courts of heaven, we are seated together with Him in heavenly places, from this position, we bring our petitions before God, “pleading our case” based on the Word of God with Jesus as our Advocate.  (1John 5:14)  And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He hears us:  (1John 5:15)  And if we know that He hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.   

            (1Peter 5:8) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.   The Greek word “anti-dikos” adversary means one who brings a lawsuit.  Satan is the accuser of the brethren.   (Luke 22:31) And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired you, that he may sift you as wheat. The Greek translation “exaiteomai” desired means demand for trial.  Satan brings our sin, our weaknesses, and our doubts before the Lord, using legal issues to resist us. The plan of the devil is to detour us from our destiny.  But God sees us through the blood of His Son Jesus, clothed in robes of righteousness. He hears the voice of our Advocate, Jesus Christ.  God’s verdict is always based on His Word and so the verdict is in our favor.  This gives us legal authority to enforce the verdict by decree and declaration of the judgment of God against our adversary, Satan.

            Pray:   I repent of any sin that would hinder me from receiving from the Lord. I ask Him to remove any accusation by the blood of Jesus that the enemy has brought against me.  I trust the Holy Spirit to guide me into all truth.  I will guard my mouth to speak only what the Word says.  I believe that God will bring me into the fullness of my destiny of God’s plan and purpose for my life.  Amen.
