Stephen McKie, Courts of Heaven – at the Justin Abraham meetings
After Stephen had finished his message, he asked us to step into the courts of heaven.
At first, I didn’t see anything … Just waiting … Then I recalled how a month ago during Sozo ministry (Bethel’s healing ministry), I had visited the court of heaven 4 times. I realized that I was in the same place. I recalled that at that time, those ministering to me had collected up all the accusations of the enemy, and they had led me through releasing and forgiving everyone connected with the issue I was receiving ministry for. We then presented the case to the advocate, Jesus, and asked him to present the case to the Father. I was asked to look to the bench and wait for the Father’s judgement. Each time, I heard the Father say “not guilty” along with other stuff. While there, the only places I saw were where Jesus was standing and where the bench was.
Today, while Stephen was ministering, I realized I was perceiving (not sure seeing is the right word) the same place and also the whole room. It had very high ceilings and had the appearance of a very important place, with dark oak paneling. There were others there but I did not see them. As I looked around, I saw chains of authority hanging over the place where the Father sat. This was a throne, and from it, bubbles were flowing out in all directions. They appeared to be coming out of the ground and spreading out.
I also realized that i had visited the throne room at a Patricia King event where I went into the throne room and was allowed to bring a gift back – a plate. At that time, i felt that I wasn’t really supposed to be there, but the Lord had allowed me to come anyway. This time, I felt God say that this was my destiny, this is where I must come, so I can receive the things He has for me, or the things He has for me to do.
He also said to me: “This is the only place where things are sure. The prophetic is powerful, but not as much as judgements and decrees that are made here. This is where the power of the government of heaven demolishes strongholds. This is where the government of God is established, and you are supposed to be here. “
I thought of the song “There is a place of commanded blessing” It refers to a time when blessing had been commanded, but it has yet to brought into force with full power. It is powerful because it was Jesus who commanded blessing where there is unity, but it hasn’t been brought with full force into the realm of the enemy. It’s like we’ve been operating on quarter power. This place is reserved for the sons and daughters of God. See Psalm 24:3-4.
It was like I saw that prophecies and decrees were available as a result of what had happened previously in heaven. They are all true and powerful and have great effect. I also saw that these things result from decisions made in the courts of heaven, because if they weren’t, they would not have power. I saw that at this time, it is exactly as Stephen was saying. God is revealing the role and place of government, and that we are invited to come there, to Mount Zion, to ask for and receive commands and decrees that will have even more effect than the former prophecies, because they were given to us for us to release on the earth.
I don’t really understand all this yet, but I listened to another teaching on the same subject from Stephen (on the podcast) and realized we have to practice this everyday, by faith. Even if we don’t see it, we can access it by faith, and then eventually we will see. I was privileged to see (darkly) this time, but I want more. I prayed that I could see more clearly, since it difficult for me. As I looked away from the room, I saw a vast expanse heading out to the horizon. We were above the clouds and the sun was bright.
I also learned that Bob or Bonnie Jones had prophesied that God would be releasing a new dispensation – one of apostolic government. This is what Stephen and Justin were releasing this weekend.
