Courtroom Of Heaven
Courtroom Of Heaven
By: Danny Wallace
If one road leads to the Cross, it certainly splinters in a million different directions the moment we choose to leave. Across the years, religion has taken one ridiculous road after another in pursuit of holding its captive’s attention. One road led to Holy laughter, and another to the “blab it and grab it” crowd of faith teachers. The examples number greater than the grains of sand on the seashore.
I predict that the movement currently breaking the horizon of religion will make all previous movements seem like a Billy Graham Crusade. It is the “Courtroom of Heaven” movement. If you haven’t heard about it, trust me – you will. Granted, it’s just now beginning to blossom, but once it is in full bloom the squirrels will rush to admire those blooms as if caught in a rainstorm of fresh acorns.
The general consensus of the movement is that God holds court in Heaven on a daily basis. Supposedly, there are Heavenly attorneys who represent our individual cases before the court. There are so many potential addendums to this new movement that it is impossible to list them all. In fact, there will be thousands before this thing reaches its frenzied peak.
Just to give you one example, many in the movement say that we are not getting our prayers answered because the enemy has blocked us, and the only way to remove that block is for us to file our case in the Courtroom of Heaven and have it tried before God by a representing angel (attorney), so that a ruling can be made, and our blessing can be unblocked.
Once the prosperity preachers get a whiff of this quackery you can rest assured that they will add a “filing fee” to each case, assuring us that we can’t just march into the Courtroom of Heaven without paying the attorney, or paying the filing fee. Thousands will be duped, as the proponents of this movement prosper, and the Plaintiffs plunge into the darkness of this unfathomable quackery. Some cases will require hundreds, and others will require tens of thousands of dollars. Just wait for it – the hook is coming. Remember the day that you read this article. As squirrely as this all sounds – it is already here, and more is coming.
Now let me give you the Truth. There is not one blessing that has not been released to you by the authority of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Every possible case was tried the day Jesus marched to the Cross on behalf of every person who has ever lived, or ever will live on this earth. Jesus said, “Now is the time of judgment. The enemy is cast out today.”
Don’t spend your time chasing spiritual charlatans and Pentecostal unicorns. The glory of God is alive and well. He loves you – He approves of you – and He has opened Heaven on your behalf. The courts of Heaven ruled the day Jesus said, “It is finished.”
Sheep need a Shepherd, not another Charlatan. Rejoice, and thrive in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
