We have to present our case in the courts of Heaven before God.
Father God is the Supreme Judge in this court, and the Holy Spirit our counselor.
We need to challenge the enemy for the story that God wrote for each of us before the foundations of the earth was laid.
The enemy is always building a case, and we have to show up for the court case.
The enemy will use anything to give him legal grounds to hinder or prevent us from operating in the perfect will of God for us.
Therefore, by going to the courts, we state our case and let the forgiveness in Christ cleanse us from our trespasses.
The Holy Spirit is on your side, and helps you to remember what the enemy might have against you.
Matthew 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
We can make a mess in our story with the words we choose to release. Even words is what the enemy holds against us. We need the Blood of Jesus to cover us and the words we spoke which the enemy holds against us.
Psalm 139: 15 - 16 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
You were in the mind of God before you were made and placed in this world. What you desire and what you have in your heart was formed by God. Glimpses of your role on earth starts at a young age. The closer you come to God, the more of your story will be revealed to you.
Romans 8: 29 - 30 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
God foreknew us, then predestined us to be in the image of His Son.
Then He called us while we are on earth, through the glimpses and flashed we receive through our life.
We then get justified by the blood of the lamb.
Note that the glory can only come after the justification. When we go before our Supreme Judge, Father God, it’s to get justified.
We can even find ourselves before God for the words we have spoken about others. We need to be cleansed from all vile words we have spoken and tied others to.
Isaiah 43: 26 Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence.
God is calling us to bring our case before Him.
Luke 22: 31 - 32 1 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
Desired in Greek means “demanding for a trial”.
Jesus presented Peter’ case.
We can also present people’ cases before the Lord.
The Holy Spirit is our counselor.
A Counselor gives advice regarding legal matters of the law.
We can also ask for a restraining order. Just as God drew the line with Job’ case, by telling the devil he may not take Job’ life, as a restraining order, so can we request one as well.
Get justified in the courts of Heaven, so that you can get glorified. This process ives you peace and closure.
Remember that when we stand before God we will be evaluated based on what is in our book and how much of it we did.
