Honest Heavenly ‘Trade’

Honest Heavenly ‘Trade’
Honest heavenly trade involves entering the presence of heaven as a mature son of God and taking this presence into the earth realm. Honest trade in the heavens means entering into the presence of God to connect to all the provision the LORD has and then take it to the earth realm in order to release it in fullness into life.

In Jesus Christ we have the right to invest into heaven and to unite with that which He already apportioned to us by His victory at the cross and His resurrection, in order that we administer it on earth (see Ephesians 1:22-23).
Ephesians 1:22-23:
22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Entry into Heaven and Divine ‘Trade’
When we enter heaven to conduct the heavenly ‘exchange deal’, the power of divine protocol as described in Zechariah 3:1-7 is activated. There Joshua the High priest appears before the throne of God where Satan is also present to accuse him.

Satan is rebuked by the angel of the LORD, and on the command of the angel Joshua's filthy clothes are removed and he is clothed with rich clean garments. This practice shows us that we are permitted to enter the presence of God, as we are made righteous through Christ (see Isaiah 1:18 i.c.w. Romans 8:30).
Isaiah 1:18:
18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
Romans 8:30:
30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
Administering the Victory of the Kingdom
To develop spiritually as saints in Jesus Christ and thus become mature sons of God (note: unless we already are) is vital; this is what the Heavenly Father yearns for. God wants mature sons who administer the victory of the kingdom.

This does not mean believers who focus only on the demonic and battle against it.
True spiritual warfare is not primarily about focusing on demonic powers but our walk with the Heavenly Father. By this we carry the kingdom, as it is in heaven, from His presence down to earth.

As a result the light of the victory of Jesus which He obtained on the middle cross at Calvary pierces the demonic resistance from top to bottom. This means the evil spirits are cast from their positions in the air, and thus as sons of God we trample on snakes and scorpions (see Luke 10:18-19 i.c.w. Ephesians 6:12).
Luke 10:18-19:
18 He (note: Jesus Christ) replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
Ephesians 6:12:
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
God wants us to mature as saints and to abandon childish things/practices (see 1 Corinthians 13:11).
1 Corinthians 13:11:
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
Stewarding Solid Spiritual Food
Regarding the spiritual realm a mature son of God can recognize if a believer is mature in spirit or moves in a level of immaturity, on the basis of his communication.
Owing to spiritual immaturity no solid food of the spirit can be shared in this case, and only a certain measure of revelation knowledge may be released, as everything else would cause overextension (see 1 Corinthians 3:2-4; Hebrews 5:12-14).
1 Corinthians 3:2-4:
2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans?
4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere human beings?
Hebrews 5:12-14:
12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk*, not solid food (* the teaching about repentance from acts that lead to death, the teaching about faith in God, the teaching about baptisms, the teaching about the laying on of hands, the teaching about the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment; see Hebrews 6:1-3)!
13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
The Result of Unholy ‘Trade’
To proceed rightly in the trading sector of heaven, one must understand that it is possible to conduct unholy trade in the spirit realm, if ones heart attitude is wrong. This results in a removal from the heavenly trading sector, as happened to Satan when he was banished from heaven (note: represented by the fall of the kings of Tyre and Babel), and as can be seen by the manner the traders were thrown out when Jesus Christ cleansed the temple during His time on earth (see Ezekiel 28:13-19; Isaiah 14:11-15 i.c.w. Matthew 21:12-13).
Ezekiel 28:13-19 (note: Fall of the King of Tyre):
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.
14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.
15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.
16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.
17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.
18 By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.
19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’ ”
Isaiah 14:11-15 (note: Fall of the King of Babel):
" … 11 All your pomp has been brought down to the grave, along with the noise of your harps; maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you.
12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!
13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens (note: to define oneself by own deeds); I will raise my throne above the stars of God (note: false zeal); I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon (note: desire to be the center of attention).
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds (note: spiritual independence by escaping circumstances); I will make myself like the Most High (note: through pride, being driven to win only)."
15 But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit.

Matthew 21:12-13:
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.
13 “It is written (see Isaiah 56:7),” he said to them, “ ‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”
When Jesus with the zeal of God cleansed the temple from the fraudulent merchants in Jerusalem, He drew attention to the real trade/the real exchange deal of heaven which can only take place through a sincere heart in the relationship with the Heavenly Father. This is suggested by the tables (note: symbol for fellowship) overturned by Jesus Christ with the table legs like index fingers pointing towards heaven and thus pointing to the true heavenly trade in the relationship with the Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.
The Seven Areas of Unrighteous Trade
In the demonic realm there are different trade areas of unrighteous exchange deals. These are:
  1. the trade area of Tyre
  2. the trade area of Athaliah
  3. the trade area of Jezebel
  4. the trade area of Cain
  5. the trade area of Delilah
  6. the trade area of Leviathan
  7. the trade area of Apollyon.
In the days of the king of Ahab there was a threefold unholy union which developed in Israel through Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians: His daughter was Jezebel she married Ahab, the king of Israel (see 1 Kings 16:29-31).
1 Kings 16:29-31:
29 In the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, Ahab son of Omri became king of Israel, and he reigned in Samaria over Israel twenty-two years.
30 Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the LORD than any of those before him.
31 He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him.
Ethbaals granddaughter was Athaliah; she married Jehoram, king of Judah (see 2 Chronicles 21:5-6).
These unholy unions caused problems of control over worship, limited financial freedom and an unhealthy control over Israel's armies.
The retail area of the king of Tyre is administered by a demonic spirit, whose influence becomes visible in the natural when people take finances from the church of Christ (note: by stealing or holding back because of greed).

Every time we as saints sow finances into a trading sector which is not holy, we invest into the retail area of the king of Tyre. This means we permit the demonic spirit there to rule over our finances.

To say we have not enough and want more (note: because of greed) is another way to sow into the trading sector of the king of Tyre.
The king of Tyre was the one who plundered Jerusalem and took the gold from the temple.

Then he built the seaport of Tyre by the sea and turned it into a trading venue which was predicated on robbery. As a consequence he created a demonic precedent in the supernatural realm for trade/exchange deals on earth.

The prince of Tyre viewed himself as God and called himself God.
If pride establishes itself in this way in an individual, it is not long before God will let justice prevail (see Ezekiel 28:1-8 i.c.w. Acts 12:21-23; Proverbs 16:18).
Ezekiel 28:1-8 (note: Fall of Tyre):
1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 “Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘In the pride of your heart you say, “I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.” But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god.
3 Are you wiser than Daniel? Is no secret hidden from you?
4 By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself and amassed gold and silver in your treasuries.
5 By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud.
6 “ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god, 7 I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of nations; they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor.
8 They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas.
Acts 12:21-23 (note: Fall of Herod):
21 On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people.
22 They shouted, “This is the voice of a god, not of a man.”
23 Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.
Proverbs 16:18:
18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
The Target of the Demonic Power of Tyre
The demonic powers in the spiritual trading area of Tyre are after the trading center of the sons of God for a reason: If they manage to contaminate subsequent generations by idolatrous worship and trade, they can control the entire trading sector of the sons of God.

At the tip of this ‘trading pyramid’ is the demonic power of ‘Ethbaal’ and under it his ‘daughter’, the evil force of ‘Jezebel’.
Jezebel achieved three things in Israel; she took the place of the power of the king and of the religious system in order to kill the prophets of the LORD.

Even today, the demonic power of ‘Jezebel’ is at work in some areas of the church by ruling and controlling holy plans and systems as well as attacking the prophetic spirit.
Every time leaders take a financial offering by compelling or manipulating people into giving, it is by the influence of the trading sector of the demonic power of ‘Jezebel’.
When leaders call on people to invest into the kingdom, it is vital that they do this from a righteous trading place and from the place of rulership of the son of God, and that they display the right heart attitude.
The demonic power of Leviathan is a prevaricator who speaks half-truths.
The retail area of Leviathan or rather the investment into his influence becomes visible in the natural when people spread half-truths and cultivate pride and illusions.
=> The leviathan of old was an aquatic creature that represented the cruel and absolute forces of nature. Leviathan is spiritually the constellation of Dracos, which was adopted as the spiritual authority over ancient Babylon, also recognized in the ancient world as the Lady of the Sea, coinciding with Revelation 17:1 (also see Job 41:23-24; Revelation 12:3; Revelation 13:1). The leviathan discourse of Job 40:25 – Job 41:26 allegorically depicts a sphere of spiritual power and human experience, where pride rules as the leviathan ruler over the children of pride. False Religion, illusion and delusion are accompanying features of this creature's power. <= (Part excerpt from the “Prophet’s Dictionary by Dr. Paula Price; pages 308 and 309)
Apollyon is the demonic trading area, where its influence can be discerned in the visible when resistance occurs to the atonement of Jesus Christ.
It is the evil force that stops people from accepting Jesus Christ as their redeemer and king, and it hinders saints to proclaim Jesus Christ at the right time.
The influence coming from the region where Apollyon/Abaddon stays, is the intention to devour and to drown human souls in despair, as well as robbing them of true life (note: the Greek name ‘apollyon’ means ‘perversive, a corrupter’. The Hebrew name is ‘abaddon’ and means ‘obliteration, doom, abyss’. Apollyon is the king of the locust army; see Revelation 9:1.3.11).
Revelation 9:1.3.11:
1 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. …
3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. …
… 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).
Delilah is the demonic trading area, where its influence can be discerned in the visible when we place our focus on earthly things which look beautiful and powerful – If we grow fond of these things, they will lead to an inner void/spiritual tenuity.
This dependency causes our brain to think in a way which does not conform to the standards of God.

Delilah was Samson’s ‘girlfriend’, she seduced him into disclosing the secret of his supernatural power, which initially caused him to loose strength (see Judges 16:4-21).
The result of sowing into this demonic trading area is seduction and religious bondage.
The influence of the demonic trading area of Cain becomes noticeable, where murderous thoughts and jealousy emerge in the heart. This is connected to a conscious decision not to love ones neighbor (see Genesis 4:3-5.8).
Genesis 4:3-5.8:
3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil (note: a dead sacrifice, as fruits do not have a heartbeat => also represents own ways) as an offering to the LORD.
4 And Abel also brought an offering – fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock (note: a living sacrifice, as blood had been spilled and life is in the blood). The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering, 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast. …
8 Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.
Jesus Christ gave us clear instructions to not only love our neighbor but also our enemies (see Matthew 22:37-40; Luke 6:27).
Matthew 22:37-40:
37 Jesus replied: “ ‘Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ (see Deuteronomy 6:5).“
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (see Leviticus 19:18).“
40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Luke 6:27:
27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, …
The influence of the spirit of Cain is noticeable in believers, who want to remain in an old time of God’s movement and are not prepared to leave their current spiritual place with the LORD. This causes their hearts to become bitter and they are thus unable to enjoy the new movement of the LORD with those who move in it.
The story from 1 Kings 13:1-32 should serve as one such example. There the old prophet lured the man of God moving in the power of signs and wonders, away from God's way so that he met his death later on.

The spirit of Cain works through destructive words, deeds, acts, heart attitudes and thoughts of people within the church towards brothers and sisters in order to stop them in their love and devotion to the LORD. Such behavior is a ‘businesslike conduct’ in the evil trading area of Cain.
The Cleansing of the Heavens by the Blood of Jesus
Jesus Christ cleansed the heavens by His blood, because Satan carried on his unrighteous, deliberate or evil commerce in these areas, of which the heavens needed to be cleansed (see Hebrews 9:12).
Hebrews 9:12:
12 He (note: Jesus Christ) did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place (note: through the heavens) once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.
Laying Down the Crowns before the Throne of God
Every time we come as sons of God in the spirit before the throne of God and walk on the crystal sea to lay down our life or victories before our God and king, we offer holy reverence, which includes holy trade or a holy exchange deal with a sincere heart. This leads to our increasing in the victory of Christ and His governmental reign, because we leave the throne of rulership allotted to us in honor of the Heavenly Father and the Lamb of God, after which we enter crowned once again into our time of reign with Jesus Christ (see Revelation 4:10-11 i.c.w. Revelation 5:8-10).
Revelation 4:10-11:
… 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: 11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Revelation 5:8-10:
8 And when he (note: the lamb of God) had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people.
9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth.”
Whatever it is we are giving as sons of God in honor of the LORD and whatever we lay down before Him, it activates the process of a heavenly, righteous trade/exchange deal, so that we increase in blessing and power in Jesus Christ.
It is important not to have the desire to be seen by people in our heavenly trade, but to come before Him sincerely and to accept any kind of sincere honor we receive from others, which we then take to our private prayer closet to lay it down in reverence before our king on the crystal sea.

Amen and Amen.
