6 Types of “Courts” in the Courts of Heaven

 

6 Types of “Courts” in the Courts of Heaven

The Courts of Heaven operate similar to the legal system we see on Earth.

Because of all the injustices happening in the world, God is releasing new revelation about gaining justice through the Courts of Heaven. The Cross of Christ is our verdict but there are times we need to enforce this by entering into the justice system of God. We operate in the Courts of Heaven through prayer and an intimate relationship with the Lord.

And just like here on Earth, there is more than one type of court in the Courts of Heaven. You might be wondering: which ones are accessible to us?

There are many different types of Courts mentioned in the Bible. Here are just a few that can help you understand and get started:

1. The Court of Mediation (Reconciliation)

“Settling outside of court” in the Court of Mediation should always be our first step in the process of gaining justice. (You can read more about my experience with heavenly mediation.)

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:18 NKJV

2. Court of Petition

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 NIV

We already operate in the Courts of Heaven when we bring our prayers and petitions to the Lord. Notice that Paul says we need to do it with thankfulness and not a spirit of revenge.

3. The Throne of Grace

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16 NIV

Our interactions with the Lord in the Courtroom of Heaven are centered around prayer and intimacy. It is important to approach the Lord with grace and mercy toward others and ourselves. We need to know and have God’s heart of love (1 John 4:8).

4. The Court of Mount Zion

The Throne of Grace and the Court of Petitions are linked to this court system. Most all your interactions take place here.

But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. Hebrews 12:22–24 NIV

Throughout the Bible, Mount Zion is a place of God’s justice and judgment. This best describes the Courts of Heaven and how we can approach the Lord.

5. The Court of the Accuser

There are several verses in the Bible that show Satan accusing people in the Courts. The main one is:

For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. Revelation 12:10 NIV

It is very important for us to not operate in the court of the accuser. It is best to learn to operate in a spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation.

6. Court of the Ancient of Days (Supreme Court)

The highest court in Heaven is the Ancient of Days court. This is equivalent to the Supreme Court in the U.S.

“As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. … The court was seated, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:9–10 NIV

This is the highest level court and you cannot go in. You can be taken in through visions and dreams, but this is not a place to present your case. For a lawyer’s insight on the Courts of Heaven, check out podcast episode #25.

Which court do you go in?

There are other Courts of Heaven that require greater understanding to operate in, but these are the basic ones that are safe to operate in:

  • The Court of Petitions
  • The Throne of Grace
  • The Court of Mount Zion
  • The Court of Mediation

Always ask the Lord’s permission before operating in the Courts of Heaven.

Remember to mediate your case first and settle outside of the Courts of Heaven whenever possible, so we aren’t unnecessarily clogging up the heavenly courtrooms.

    This has been an interesting read. I learned some things I didn’t know. Thank you for this post. I’m glad I found it. I’d like to suggest a different perspective at the same time. After operating in the courts for several years now, having been taken by God to many different places and Courts, – in terms of forming my Courts of Heaven prayers, I really don’t begin with which court to go into. I always begin with the goal of approaching God and letting him reveal where this case needs to go, trusting He knows. So I always start with God directly, then let him lead. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with discussing Courts. However, it seems to me this is what is meant by “let there be no other God before me:” I learned that fear, even fear of “correct protocol” can impact your ability to operate in the Courts, because in fact it is an idol that can distract you from approaching God directly and letting him lead. One day I decided the issue was important enough that I just didn’t care anymore about “what court I could or could not go into” and like Ester I barged right in to the highest Court I could go and demanded of the Lord justice for a certain issue – it had to deal with babies and atrocities happening to these babies. I figured Like Ester, it is better to break protocol and risk ones life when the matter of life and death is at hand, than it is to follow correct protocol. And if He’s my God, then I’m going in. So I went into the highest court, and when I got there, to my surprise He said, “Well its about time.” That’s when I realized my self-limiting beliefs were false idols standing between me and God. Of course God would extend His scepter to me – He’s my God! Ever since then, I don’t have any more limiting beliefs about the Courts of Heaven and where I can and cannot go. I do head the Biblical statements to work at my own healing journey first – Zechariah 3:7 “If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.” And “Who can ascend the mountain of the Lord but those with clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false God.” Psalm 24:3-4. Unconscious fear of following perfect Court of Heaven protocol can itself be an idol blocking one from entering into the mountain of the Lord. And even then – “the fear of having idols blocking God” can itself be an idol too – one day I said to the Lord, Lord I know I have unaccounted for idols – especially in my DNA, what should I do about that? He said “push them to the side for now, so they are lower than me.” So that’s what I did, they didn’t go away completely, as there was more that needed to be addressed before they were removed, they just moved to the side so we could deal with the matter at hand and I had a direct stance before God. It highlights the mercy and grace of God to deal with us in our genuine condition of continual healing, and His genuine desire and truth that nothing can separate us from him. So Just some food for thought as I think God would like more and more people operating at the top of their calling without fear of punishment for going into the court the wrong way. Just go to God, make that your goal. He is more than capable of moving you into the correct court and bringing you up higher. And take a chance! Go higher! Challenge yourself and God – He likes it. You might just break your glass ceiling and find God on the other side welcoming you in! Many blessings to you all as you walk in the Courts of the Lord, and I pray God emboldens your spirit with courage to soar to new heights, breaks off every fear, and releases joy into your hearts and minds in the thrill of operating together with Him in His courts – “for better is one day in His courts than thousands elsewhere!” 🙂

    I am grateful for the insight am getting from this information. Honestly i did not know much about “Court of Appeal of Heaven” from my Pastor some months ago who told us she had got it as a revelation. I did not know there was all this wealth of information about it.
    But I am somehow confused now between the simplicity of the gospel of beleaving Jesus’ “finished work” on the cross where all we need is faith (believe, trust and obey what Jesus teaches us) and now this talk of entering the courts of heaven to plead our own cases and cleaning our bloodlines etc

      Hey Stephen. Great question! In Doug’s podcast with Elizabeth Nixon on the Courts of Heaven she says the following that is helpful, ““What does it mean to go into the Courts,” and really going to the Courts of
      Heaven is really just our prayers. It is our prayers to the Lord. Specifically, for me it has been either with intercession issues and when I am praying the Word, when I am praying back the Word to the Lord and I’m calling forth His promises. That is really what the Courts are.”

    I was invited to a weekly prayer group buy a pastor friend of mine. I tend to be leery of attending these as I have found them to be very clicky. I went and there were probably 20 adults, married with children, some with grandkids. The shofar was blown and there was wonderful prayer and the moving of the Holy Spirit.

    There was a new couple there and the group prayed over them and anointed the husband with oil. Well this was happening I had a vision. Now I don’t share visions unless somebody can interpret. The Holy Spirit urged me to share my vision. I was obedient and shared it. Now I didn’t know this couple and had just met them. The wife broke down in tears and the husband cried also.

    As things were winding down and people were leaving, the hostess asked if she could have a private conversation with me. Nervously I walked into the dining room with her. It was there that she told me I needed to go to the courts of Heaven. That I should study the courts of Heaven. I explained that I had never heard of this. She said she would send me the link for Robert Henderson.

    I watched the video and I felt like my head was going to explode. I watched it three times taking copious notes. For the next week my brain was numb. I started researching it by watching more of Robert Henderson and Natasha Grbich’ s “Cleansing Your Bloodline.”

    As many times as I had read the Bible, I had missed the fact that I could indeed go into the court. I had a number of issues that I’ve been praying about for years with no resolution. I went to the court of Heaven and this particular issue was resolved within 3 days.

    I sent this information to a pastor friend of mine. He and his wife sat down and watched it. I got a text message from them saying we’re putting the kids to bed. We just watched the video and we have purple smoke coming out of our ears. We need to watch this again. At that time they had seven children between the ages of one and 18. By the grace of God all the kids went to bed at 8:30. With that being said, my pastor friend and his wife have been going into the courts on a regular basis and having multiple issues resolved. From the kids health, to being targeted by witch’s. Cleansing bloodlines, Etc.

    For the record I am 55 and have read the Bible over a dozen times. I have stopped participating in our pagan holidays. I read the Dead Sea Scrolls, The Maccabees, first Enoch, and as many of the missing books that I can get my hands on. It was the Council of Nicea that removed these books from the Bible.

    My son and I now use the ‘Cepher. I was invited to a small dinner with Dr. Steve Pidgeon. I love learning and doing research.

    Christ used the Torah to teach. He never commanded us to stop using it or to stop celebrating his Feasts. After diving into the Jewish history and studying the Hebrew culture, I found a great deal of infformation that enriched my life walk with the Christ.

    Always use discernment. We can go into the courts it’s in the Bible! Anytime for anything!! We should be excited that our Father has given us another weapon in addition to prayer, the armor, forgiveness, repentance, grace and his precious Son’s blood.

    Shalom and blessings to all

    As a nearly 60 year traveller with the Lord in Pentecostal churches and pastor for 30 of those years, I find your doctrine very odd to say the least. What happened to the role and function of Jesus, our wonderful High Priest? The book of Hebrews has strong teaching on His role and function for us. I though He was the one we prayed to and He intercedes for us. After all, He said in John 15 that if we abide in Him we would ask and have our petitions. I suspect this is just another “wind of doctrine” spoken about in Ephesians 4

    I had a dream I believe may have had to do with the courts of heaven and my “case” being decided. I don’t understand it. A shadowed figure looked right at me and said, “ the Lord wants you to know that the rewards of your heart are granted, but that the physical condition is not an imputed one (condition).” I’ve been sick for a very long time so I think it has something to do with that. Please help.

    Hi, I have a question about how to pray for missionaries. I am on a prayer team that prays for about 50 missionaries and their ministries located throughout the world. They are in serious situations where they are surrounded by jihardists and other types of attacks. Major issues in countries where there have been horrible atrocities. What is the best way to pray when the issues relate to other governments, international injustices, spiritual strongholds over countries? Should we pray as we have always prayed? If you took a country or area of the world before the Courts of Heaven where there have been great atrocities for decades and repented on behalf of the people of that country,and these systems, and prayed for God’said destiny of that area, country, ministry to be revealed and to be fulfilled, could revival break out in these countries throughout the world? Or also, like issues of abortion for example, or perhaps even President Trump. Can a person or ministry repent of behalf of The United States for Row vs. Wade and abortion and get a verdict on that to get it reversed, or can a group of Christians or prayer group take President Trump into the Courts to repent on his behalf and to ask that his destiny would be fulfilled? How do you know what you can and can’t do, or what jurisdiction you have?

      Hi Catherine,

      Doug has 4 hours of advanced teaching on this subject in the Courts of Heaven Parts 1 & 2. You can purchase the online training by emailing help@dougaddison.com. I will try to give you a brief snapshot to try to answer your questions.

      The basic answer is that God asks us to pray without ceasing. We pray according to what God puts on our hearts and according to the spiritual authority that we have. We enter into the Courts of Heaven through our personal prayer time with the Lord. We share want is on our hearts and pray God’s word over our requests. We listen to hear God’s answers to our prayers and continue to press in where God has not answered. When we see injustice happening in the areas of our prayers, we can ask the Lord take us into the Courts of Heaven to open a case for justice. The key to presenting a case in Heaven is to stay in a place of repenting for our sins and the sins of those we are asking for justice for.

      To answer your specific questions, you can pray according to the assignments and the spiritual authority that God has given you. Prayer starts with your personal relationship with Jesus and sharing your heart for the prayer burdens God gives you. You will need to ask God what your spiritual authority and scope is to pray. Lastly, God has a history of using one person to start a prayer movement. Daniel comes to mind. I am sure you will find others. Blessing you on your prayer journey for justice and peace.

    could not finish the great american adventure on the courts even though it was written by a judge-
    because of so much cross training in churches
    CI and Bible collage then cutting through the matrix
    w/t a. watt the mass conditioning if properly understood through God and His Word can change our prayer to work with things that Jesus warned us about…have had this struggle- they have eyes but can not see, ears but can not hear… Jesus love us this i know…

    It is important to know that we can’t navigate or discern God’s word on our own, if we can Jesus wouldn’t send the Holy Spirit and the Pharisees would have recognised him as the Christ, so most times we say until we see a reference black and white before we receive the speakings of God to us via revelation…study Luke 18..Jesus started by talking about prayer and immediately narrated the story of an unjust judge and a widow, using a court scenario to capture prayer.

    I’m having such a hard time with this one of heard about it for years but I’ve really had a hard time with it. Jesus said you present your petitions to the father in my name knowing that you have what you vast and it shall be done. I have several injustices that have been done lately and they do need to be handled in their prayers and I have yet to see answered after long Battles Why do we have to fight it out in the courts of heaven I just wish I understood better.

        Agree. Be careful about “buying into” this teaching. God has already given us everything through Jesus and His dying on the cross and coming back to life. We are already victorious and don’t need “courtroom battles” because we are already given full access directly to the Father, God Almighty. Proceed with caution per this teaching on this site.

            Hi. I wanted to make a comment on the Courts of Heaven and to respond to the woman who was really struggling with this. You know, much of the Christian western church has not had a lot of understanding on the Courts of Heaven, but the Jewish people and even the Messianic people have greater understanding than we have been taught. There are some cultural pieces there. If you read through Robert Henderson’s book, it is quite significant to see a whole perspective opening in front of us that has been there all along. We just never saw it. God has a way of communicating and opening up areas of understanding. There’s a place and a purpose for everything He does. It’s not that surprising that God would open up a greater understanding of the Courtroom of Heaven. Our culture is moving so far away from issues of morality that even the church falls prey to cultural teachings and we are led astray into sin. Take living together for example instead of marriage. So much of scripture uses analogies and texts and vocabulary coming from a courtroom. If you seriously study the Bible and go into the Greek and Hebrew, it will become quite clear. God has standards and He takes them very seriously. Personally, I found that Katie Souza’s teachings are an excellent prerequisite to the Courts of Heaven. If there is sin, trauma, or generational iniquity in our bloodline, it can be an open door for the enemy to attack us. The Lord showed Katie Souza how to become ‘excellent of soul’ through the blood of Jesus and the power (dunamis in Greek) of the Resurrection. It’s these elements plus God’s Light and Glory and Grace that help us to truly get soul wounds within us healed and how when we do this that the enemy loses his right to attack. Doug Addison himself had a dream of Katie as an Officer in the Courtroom of Heaven next to his. When he shared the dream with her, she went before the Lord saying essentially, “Lord, why would Doug have a dream of me being in the Courtroom of Heaven. I have friends and many other leaders who do that, but I have never done that.” God showed her that her ministry focused on healing wounds in the soul which was actually like a prerequisite to be able to take people into the Courts of Heaven. God led her to start doing that. For example, in her teaching on Idols in our lives and dealing with those, she has a two part series. The first deals with the idols; the second takes the idols in our lives into the Courts of Heaven to complete the work. My recommendation for people who have a hard time with the Courts of Heaven is to back up, take a break and seriously look at Katie Souza’s teaching, and then after to return to the Courts of Heaven because it will be easier to understand. Actually order the sets because you can only get one of the four cds listening on You Tube, but when you order the materials and get all of it, it is quite transformational. If you order her books, Healing the Wounded Soul and Soul Degrees, these will totally transform your life and are totally based on scripture. From there, you can move into greater understanding of the Courts of Heaven and of course, Doug’s books which are also awesome. It’s not as weird as you think. Sometimes we are tripped up by semantics and language and even cultural differences. Ask the Lord to show you. He loves you so much. He will show you Himself. Both Katie Souza and Doug Addison totally love and support each other’s ministries. They are one in accord with one another and they work in great power and miracles. We are all the family of Christ and in the past our denominational churches have taken out the power and miracles and left a powerless church to move forth in intellectual teachings that are not backed up with the power of the Holy Spirit. We are coming into a critical time. We have to walk in oneness of purpose, unity, and power. We have this power within us that most believers are totally unaware of.
            Ask God to help you to get everything He has for you. You want all the tools in the toolbox. He longs to do that for you. Sometimes we don’t ask because we don’t realize what’s available. Heaven’s resources abound. God longs to give great gifts, but often we are satisfied with little trinkets. God doesn’t want you spiritually anorexic, but spiritually robust because then He can use you to transform lives, to change atmospheres, and to bring His glory upon earth.
