I jumped out of bed Tuesday morning. Holy Spirit was mid-sentence explaining something to me and I jumped up and started frantically digging through my side table. I knew it was there… I knew it was hidden somewhere deep within the pages of a very thick 3-inch binder I’ve stored all of my Cultivate Life notes in over the past 12 years. I searched and searched, and then… There it was! A picture-graph I created in a 2011 Word Document based on a revelation I had on the court system of Heaven!
After finding it, I very enthusiastically sat back down on my bed so Holy Spirit could finish what He was saying. He said, “Press into the courts of Heaven. Absorb it! Learn everything you can! Apply it! Take this week to apply all of it… See Heaven from My perspective.”
Now before I go any further, I want you to know that I whole-heartily embraced the responsibility I wrote about last week. Actually… The embrace is what led me to this moment… This moment where I can see Heaven and our divine positioning with so much clarity.
You see the foundational truth about us is that we are sons and daughters of God. Trust, faith and intimacy are built upon our ability to have a very vulnerable and deep relationship with the Godhead… One where we are refined so that we can develop, mature and grow into all that He’s created us to be.
But then there is another role we are to fulfill… Kingship! We are royalty that is destined to govern over the earth from the spirit realm as we rule and reign over the darkness that has infiltrated our world. And when I say “kingship” I don’t in any way mean the standard by which our culture calls each other “kings and queens” for sport.
Being spiritually royal means we MUST first develop into mature sons and daughters so that we can embrace our royal duties. Then we are tasked with exceedingly crucial responsibilities! Our first responsibility is to see the legality of Heaven… To see that governing is a process of law. A process of law in Heaven we are to systematically and strategically work with in our daily lifestyle to move forward the plans, purposes and processes of the Kingdom of God.
You see I am expressing this because I have been asking Holy Spirit for over a year now to increase my understanding of spiritual government. I have been seeking His heart on a more effective and efficient way to rule and reign over darkness, and He has been very faithful in providing answers and solutions. However, the paradigm I’ve recently encountered is already revolutionizing my realm and the realms surrounding me. It’s actually revolutionizing them in such a way that I am more confident than ever of who we are and how we’ve been designed to work from Heaven down into the earth.
And the confidence I have has come from the clarity found within His words. He said, “If you truly want to rule and reign above the darkness, you must keep pursuing a higher way. You must view and submit your requests before the court of Heaven. Amanda, you know the kingdom of darkness is legalistic. You’ve experienced the legalism and perfection of the courts of heaven in deliverance sessions your entire life! Do you think My legal system is only limited to deliverance? Do you think it only pertains to situations where humanity needs freedom from powers, principalities and demonic oppression? You are to enter my courts for everything. You are to come humbly before me as a daughter in My Kingdom… A daughter who has right standing, a birthright of royalty and divine dominion and authority. Boldly come before Me and address the darkness. Boldly come before me and present the accusations. Come before Me and present the injustice in your nation. You must come before Me as I am… I am King. I am Judge. And I must give a verdict of mercy, healing and freedom because grace is law! You want to see real change in the Heavens and the Earth? Seek My heart as your Father. Seek My will for solutions. Then build from that intimate communication between daughter and father… And come before me as royalty with royal authority. Come before me as a Queen presenting injustices… Like Esther before the King and the court, and I… I as Judge, will bring a righteous and just verdict into what you’ve presented. And then you, you will see My Kingdom begin to expand in the Heavens and on Earth! But you must come. You must come as often as needed. You must incorporate this into your lifestyle. For it will very much impact your life, Cultivate Life and the realms, dimensions and timelines presented before Me.” 🌱
