Heavenly riches are way beyond anything the world has. It includes material provision. But heavenly riches also includes the riches of wisdom, health, strength, vitality, God’s revelation, love and so on. These are available to us because Jesus died on the cross. The Lord’s prayer implies that God wants us to live on earth as it is in heaven.
Getting true riches through prayer
Patricia King was in Africa when a man brought his daughter to her. The little girl had never walked. Patricia prayed for her and she walked.

Ascending to heaven
Patricia King told Bob Jones that she would like to ascend to heaven. Bob told her that according to Ephesians, she is already there. (Ephesians 2:6 — And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.) Bob simply prayed that they would ascend to heaven.
In her mind’s eye she saw herself becoming a flame. She asked the Holy Spirit what she would be bringing down from the heavenly encounter. In her mind’s eye she saw snowcapped mountains and flying eagles. After telling that to Bob Jones, he told her that she was seeing the same vision he had had in 1984. It was about the emergence of the prophets in the Pacific Northwest.
About 6 months later someone asked Patricia if she would help set up a Canadian council of prophets. She was in Kelowna, British Columbia. That’s in the Pacific Northwest. She drove to the airport to the airport to pick up some prophets. It was snowing. She could see the snow-capped mountains and she was going to get the prophets.
In the Bible, eagles are the symbol of prophets. She knew what her vision had meant. The Canadian Prophetic Council was set up and is active to this day.

Joan Hunter says that most Christians do not know how to position themselves for biblical prosperity. We have to get into a position to know that God desires to bless us. We should have an expectancy for blessing.
We must remember that blessing includes much more that finances. It includes love, joy, peace, health, etc.

God’s benefits package
God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 Sometimes you have to read the Bible, find a scripture that applies to your need and pray it into existence.
Get into God’s Word and find out for yourself. God has so much available for you.
Expectancy and rotator cuff miracle
Joan Hunter expects God to heal people. A man whose rotator cuff had been removed came up for prayer. As Joan was praying, she felt a brand new rotator cuff growing into position.
Groceries out of “nowhere”
Joan Hunter got into a mindset where she expected God to take care of her needs.
One day while she was in this mindset, she came home to a big surprise. She had left the house very neat. When she got home, 30 to 50 bags of groceries were in her living room. There were so many groceries that she did not even have room for them all in the refrigerator & pantry.
Blockages to the blessings
There are some be major blockages to the blessings of the Lord. For example:
Lack of holiness
The Word of God tells us to cast our cares on Him. When we cast our cares on Him, we automatically will not be worrying.
Fear is the opposite of faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6
Q. What is the tangible glory of God?
A. It is the weighty presence of the Lord. People feel the presence. It seems like the glory is where most of the creative miracles happen.
For instance, one day in the Brownsville revival a Vietnam veteran & his wife were worshipping. During the war his hand had been partially destroyed by a grenade.
The glory had fallen. While that was happening, his hand started to grow back into what it should be.
Watch this video.
The glory & the atmosphere
The Lord will not inhabit a foul atmosphere. The atmosphere of the Brownsville church had been thoroughly cleansed with two and a half years of praying. The Glory of God showed up and people were transformed — while in the building.
Often, before they got home, they would be fighting like cats and dogs. For love & peace to return, they had to repent and change the atmosphere of their home.
Hear more details in the video below.
Many curse people unknowingly
Many people have unknowingly been cursed by their parents. These parents can be sending word curses when they say negative things to their children. E.g., “You won’t amount to anything” or “You’re going to get sick.”
A word curse can cause these things to come to pass.
Blessings & curses
A word curse is something you release out of your mouth. It can be anything you do not want to pass to a person, place or thing. A blessing is also something you release out of your mouth. However, it is something you want to pass to a person, place or thing.
Reversing a curse
To reverse a curse you must do 3 things:
Repent (turn around & stop it.)
Renounce (ask the Lord to withdraw whatever you cursed. Then you must re-say it as a blessing.)
Revoke (remove all power from a curse so that it cannot come back.)
To hear this explained more fully, watch the video below.
There are books in Heaven revealing destinies — destinies of people all the way to destinies of nations. Often it requires activity in the courts of heaven for a destiny to be fulfilled. We have to step into Heaven to deal with all sorts of legal issues. These are the legal issues the enemy is using to prevent us from reaching our destiny.
Learn more about the courts of Heaven in the video below.
Satan wants to take away our destiny
Psalms 139:16 talks about a time before we were born. It says that our destiny was written in heaven. But the devil is trying to detour us away from that destiny.
For example, think of the story in Luke 22:31 where Jesus is speaking to Simon Peter. Jesus says that Satan has desired to have him. “Desired” here means that Satan has demanded that Peter be put on trial. Satan is saying that Peter is disqualified from his destiny because of things he has done. But Christ is saying that He has gone to court for Peter and Peter will get what was destined for him.
This is explained more fully by Robert Henderson in the video below.
The greatest legal transaction in history
The greatest legal transaction in history took place when Jesus died on the cross. When Jesus said, “It is finished”, that meant that every legal mandate was now met. After Jesus died, all people were given the legal rights we see in Isaiah 53. Jesus took our sickness, our pains, our sins and our iniquities. Watch the video below.
We can now have the legal right to be free of sickness, pains, sins and iniquities. Learn how to be free of these problems. Absorb the rest of this blog post.
Your adversary the devil
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Your adversary the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he could devour.” “Adversary” is from the Greek word “antidikos”. It means “one who brings a lawsuit”. The reason some important prayers are not answered can be because the devil has a legal case against us.
Think of the parable of the unjust judge. The widow did not yell and scream at the judge. She asked the judge for a verdict that would render her adversary unable to legally operate against her.
This concept is discussed in the video below.
Reversing His Son’s Depression
Robert Henderson’s son had been in a deep depression for two years. He prayed for his son multiple times. That had no effect.
Then the Lord told him to take his son to the Courts of Heaven. He did. There he:
Repented for any fault his son had as a father & a husband. He repented for his son believing the lie of the enemy & for anything else he could think of.
Then he repented for any negative thing he had said to his wife about the boy.
He prophesied his son’s destiny.
He rebuked the spirit of depression.
The whole thing took about 15 minutes. His son’s depression lifted. What he could not do in two years of prayer he did in 15 minutes in the Courts of Heaven.
Satan is the accuser of the brethren. What if he accuses you in the courts of heaven & you do not show up? You may just lose because you did not defend yourself.
Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. Luke 31-32a
Meditate on the above passage. Q. Where did satan ask to sift Peter like wheat? A. In the Courts of Heaven.
But, according to Ian Clayton, Jesus went up to the Courts of Heaven and petitioned on behalf of Peter.
Someone has to defend us against the accuser of the brethren.
One p.174 Ian Clayton says: Too many intercessors have been caught and trapped on the earth trying to eventually go to Heaven instead of realizing that they could go to Heaven immediately, do transactions and win!
On p.177 Ian Clayton says: The courtroom of God is also where angels are released on assignment to see it come to pass on earth. It is done in the courtroom, not on the earth. As intercessors we spend so much time praying down here and it has been good, but we have not always had the victory. We have to learn another way.
This blog post is a summary of the book, The Trading Floors of Heaven.
There are two trading floors. One is of God and the other is of satan. They are both in the realm of the spirit.
Satan’s trading floor is designed to build satan’s kingdom on earth. God’s trading floor is designed to make a person’s life more abundant.
A trading floor is a place in the spirit realm where people give some something and get something in return. It may be positive or negative.
For instance, when someone sins, they are trading on satan’s trading floor. They are getting temporary pleasure. In return, a potential blessing was withheld. That would help build satan’s kingdom. Sounds like a foolish trade to me.
When someone is truly worshiping, they are giving a blessing to God. In exchange, they receive God’s blessing. They have just traded on God’s trading floor.
How do we trade with satan?
The first trade recorded in the Bible was when satan convinced Eve to eat the fruit in exchange for having the ability to know good & evil. Adam & Eve traded their dominion over the earth for their supposed ability to be like God. Their sin gave satan legal right to have dominion over the earth.
Every time you sin, you are trading with satan’s kingdom. You lose blessings and opportunities that would have been available to you.
So, satan’s trading floor takes life away from you and God’s trading floor releases life to you.
Trading floors & 2 kingdoms
After Adam & Eve sinned, satan’s kingdom was established. So, Earth now had two kingdoms — Kingdom of God & kingdom of satan.
When Jesus came to earth, he traded his divinity for an earthly body. I.e., he entered God’s trading floor. Later he traded his life for the blessed life that mankind can live in the Kingdom of God.
We now have an opportunity to trade on God’s trading floor & get back what satan got from us in his trading floor.
Intentional & unintentional trades
Whether intentional or unintentional, a trade will have the same consequences. Even a trade your ancestors made can affect you negatively because the results of the trade can be in your DNA.
Secular scientists know about the effects of experiences creating changes in a person’s DNA.
Scientists in Emory University gave mice a mild shock. At the same time they smelled a particular fragrance. Consequently, they developed a fear of that fragrance.
Then the researchers milked the sperm & sent it across campus. There female mice that had never been around the males were impregnated with the sperm.
Their offspring & grandchildren were all afraid of the same fragrance.
Let us suppose that your ancestors from 20 generations killed their firstborn in a ritual to their gods. Perhaps they did it in exchange for victory in a war.
In the realm of spirit, this would have been a legal agreement.
If you are a firstborn child, you could be experiencing consequences of the ritual from 20 generations ago. Perhaps all sorts of things in your life are going wrong in a way that seems unreasonable. The devil may be laying claim to your life because of that legal trade so many centuries ago.
When someone is gambling, they are trading their money for the chance to make good money from the god of chance. God should be our provider. When we gamble, we trade this hope in God for hope in a demon.
This hope in a demon can pass on to future generations. A gambler’s great-grandchildren can end up hoping for financial blessings from sources that have nothing to do with God’s blessing.
Reversing trades with the god of chance
To reverse the effects of the trades, start by repenting. Below is a sample prayer.
Father, I repent on behalf of anyone in my bloodline who traded with the god of chance. I repent for agreeing to such a trade. I call this trade sin. We sinned against you God.
Lord, have mercy on us. Forgive us for having faith in another god and not in you. We repent and walk away from this way of unbelief. We give back anything we have that we have received from the god of chance including his false hope. We trust & believe You will provide for our needs according to Your riches in Glory.
After you have completed your repentance, you can go into the Courts of Heaven and request a decree such as the one below.
Father, I step into the Courts of Heaven. I request that You issue a decree that you annul any contract that exists between the god of chance and me & my bloodline. Father, I ask that you remove any counterfeit hope that is anchored in my heart and soul. I do not want to be tethered to any god but You. I reject any false hope, wish or chance. I say today that my trust is in my Lord Jesus Christ and no one else.
In addition to this prayer, you might want to lay claim to anything you believe was stolen from you by the god of chance.
Kerry Kirkwood discovered that people can be greatly rewarded if they bless people who abuse them. Sometimes we should call things as though they are even when they are not.
This applies when it is according to God’s Word. The Lord … is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish… 2 Peter 3:9. If the Lord does not want any to perish, if makes more sense to bless them rather than bad mouth them. Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. Luke 6:28
See example in the video below.
Blessing customers in a topless bar
A certain pastor used to drive by a topless bar. When he did, he would curse the place. He would pray for things like the bar burning down.
One day Kerry Kirkwood explained to him the importance of blessing people. The Lord wants all of those people in the bar to live for him.
So, the pastor began praying blessings over the patrons of the bar. Within a short time he saw a for sale sign on the building.
Learn more in the video below.
Blessing a mean boss
The office manager in a business had a mean, unreasonable boss. After hearing Kerry Kirkwood’s teaching, she began going around blessing the business and blessing the boss’ office.
Her boss called her in, apologized and gave her a raise retroactive for 3 months.
From filing for a divorce to a happy marriage
A man came up to Kerry Kirkwood after a teaching & said, among other things, that his wife was at the court house filing for a divorce. Kerry quickly discerned that the man had been cursing his wife.
He told the wife to stop cursing his wife and start blessing her. That afternoon he listened to a teaching CD to help him know what to say.
When his wife came home he told her that she was a gift from God and that he deeply loved her. She said that he told her enough so that she just felt a “liquid love” passing through her body.
The testimony below is a textbook example of blessing someone who rubs you the wrong way. Ryan Z. Johnson is a man from Canada traveling around Eastern Europe looking for spiritual experiences. Read below.
It was the gentlest robbing ever, perhaps— I was resting on a stoop, while walking home last night—maybe they thought I was drunk or passed out—the one guy took my backpack, and I said he could take it, and then called after: “passport” (I know as a follower of Christ Jesus, we are to give (even more) if someone is trying to rip us off—“if someone tries to sue you for your jacket, give them your shirt too!!! ~so maybe I kinda flunked by asking for that—yet, I was just thinking, they can’t use it (legally), and its expensive & a hassle to get a new one!
I did have a bunch of other stuff (including my keyboard ⌨️ & power-bank, charger-cables & books (with songs and poems and stuff…) in the backpack…
And the guy stopped and put down my backpack and opened it (said with thick Bulgarian accent, “passport”,) and I walked up and pointed to which pocket—he let me take it, then asked, while beginning to rifle through some of the other pockets, “Money?!”
I said, “No money; no money in there.” I had coins (all the money I had here in Bulgaria) in my pants pocket—and my iPhone too! I reached in my pants pocket and collected the few coins and held out the money, all I had, and offered it to him.
He looked up from rifling and scowled a bit, shook his head, but the other guy held out his hand and I gave it to him, saying “Blogoslovenia v Isusi!” (Russian: “Blessings in Jesus”), and God bless you… (nothing like an audience to evangelize—but I don’t know much Bulgarian—that’s about the extent of it—I wondered if I should offer my iPhone too….)
But then the guy with my backpack, stood up and gave it back, and shook my hand, laughing, and smiling!!!! I repeated the blessing as they walked off, a few coins richer and hopefully mulling over and munching on the Love and Victory of Jesus (who saves us from worldly attachments—worshipping money & security, forgives us and gives Grace and blessings even to enemies…offers us fulfillment & friendship & Eternal Life, True Bliss….
And I walked home with Him….
I did have a few moments of challenge battling thoughts of fighting them—afterwards… (I was given Grace in the moment!)
It was a bit of a feeling of violation & injustice—yet also of a gentle warning of how to conduct at night…
I was pretty deep into martial arts for about 9 years, and even though they looked tough/big (one guy looked tough, like mma, the other guy was big but seemed more gangly and less dangerous…)…. they could be dead now if it wasn’t for Jesus Christ…
