I attended a conference recently on “Engaging the Courts of Heaven”. Since being involved in a freedom ministry in our home, I found this method a much faster process to freedom. There are 4 steps involved:
Agree with the adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.(Matt. 5:25)
Who is the adversary you are to settle with on the way to court? Satan, who is the accuser of the brethren. I Peter 5:8 tells us he is like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. A Greek word for accuser is kategorus which is a prosecutor looking to bring a charge against you.
Do you have a little voice accusing you of guilt, condemnation, or rejection? The enemy is looking not only at your life but if he can’t find too much there he will try to find something in your family line that has not been confessed and put under Jesus’ blood. That is why it is so important to close the doors on generational issues. For example, let’s take rejection. Because rejection was inflicted on me, I didn’t think of confessing that as sin but if I don’t want the enemy to have any place in me I will repent of it.I know that is not what the Word says about me! The Word says I am a royal priesthood, a daughter of the King, loved and accepted. This issue may have come from a previous generation or two. So I agree with the adversary that rejection or condemnation is a sin and repent on their behalf wherever this stronghold began. I forgive and bless my ancestors and then declare my cleansing by the blood of Jesus and all the ramifications of this sin. I pray on their behalf as Daniel did for the nation of Israel. I then declare rejection cleansed from my bloodline and descendants and cast it out to the feet of Jesus!
Finally we know according to I John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Repentance is a huge tool we need to wield against the enemy! The Word says to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God and in due time He will lift us up. Why have we neglected to confess our sins one to another and pray for each other that we may be healed? (James 5:16) Why would we stick with our pride and denial of sin when it may not even be a sin we committed but an ancestor has? Repent on their behalf and the enemy will have no grounds in you! Let’s pay attention to the enemy’s voice who is accusing you now and trick him by agreeing with him that yes, that is sin and whether I have done it or not, I agree and repent on behalf of anyone in my family line who has committed this sin. I receive God’s grace of forgiveness now! What a wonderful gift of God’s free grace. He remembers our sin no more. Why should we? It is only the enemy who is reminding you of sin and with this simple formula you can banish his accusations:
Agree with the adversary on the way to court.(Matt.5:25)
Confess any sin.
Repent of this sin.
Claim your cleansing from the blood of Jesus who covers you and all ramifications of this sin.
God will never leave or forsake you. You never have to perform or earn His love. You are under grace! Praise God!
Merry Christmas and blessings in 2020!
