Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to oppose him. And the Lord said to Satan, "The Lord rebuke you ,Satan! The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?" Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and was standing before the Angel. Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, "Take away the filthy garments from him." And to him He said, "See, I have removed your inquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes." And I said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." So they put the clothes on him. And the Angel of the Lord stood by. Then the Angel of the Lord admonished Joshua saying "Thus says the Lord of hosts: 'If you will walk in My ways, and if you will keep My command, then you shall also judge My house, and likewise have charge of my courts; I will give you places to walk among these who stand here.
The last few months I have been studying about the Courts of Heaven. It has been an eye opening study for me. I love the verse above, for it reminds me that God is our ultimate Judge, which we all need because Satan is always there accusing us day and night, and Jesus is always there interceding for us. Just as Joshua received a clean new turban on his head and clean clothes, we too can go into Heaven's Courtroom before God and present our case; it doesn't matter how dirty we feel, God will clean us up! And, just like Joshua, we will be given a new turban, which is like the mind of Christ. When we are in the Courts of Heaven we are covered by the Blood of Jesus, we are forgiven, and given access to more responsibilities in His Kingdom.
As a child of God He is inviting you into His Heavenly Courtroom. When you are there you can take action to have the enemy of your soul silenced. You have access to the Keys of His Kingdom, and those Keys open many doors. He has already promised all of this to you, there's no need to wait any longer.
Will you go?
