The Victory Is Yours

One year ago I had the most life changing encounter when angels escorted me into the Throne Room. I wanted to share it with you again since it is timeless and eternally true.

A Throne Room Encounter That Changed Everything! “The Victory Is Yours!”
Kathi Pelton

A week ago I had one of the most unexpected and transforming encounters of my life. I am praying that the Spirit will help me to share it with you so that you can truly experience the transformation as well.

During our Sunday worship service in downtown Portland, Oregon, I found myself being drawn into a place in the spirit that I had never been before— at least not like this. I was no longer in Portland, but I was being ushered by unseen hosts to a heavenly place.

As I was moving from the earthly realm) into the heavenly realm I began to experience every grief, burden and painful “outcome” being swallowed up by the sounds and atmosphere of heaven.

I suddenly found myself bowed down in The Throne Room where I was absolutely overwhelmed and overtaken by the attributes of God. I was immersed in the kindness of God, the mercy of God, the holiness of God and the absolute victory of God. I began weeping uncontrollably— not because I was sad but because it caused everything in me began to cry out, “Holy, holy, holy!”

I could see other people coming from earth to heaven and as they did, all defeat and death was swallowed up in the victory of Jesus. This place was so vast and yet so full— but FULL of every aspect of God.

Waves of “who he is” crashed over me, one after another. All I could do was to bow down even lower while crying out, “Holy, holy, holy are you!”

First a wave that revealed his kindness would come and take my breathe away because it would fill every part of this place and everyone (and every being) within it. Then a wave of his mercy would come, and the same thing would happen— and so on. I never wanted to leave this place because I was absolutely freed from of every sense of defeat while being immersed in complete victory. Eternal victory! The perishable was overtaken by the imperishable Christ and his victory. I trembled in his presence and wept in overwhelming gratitude for his mercy and kindness.

When I began to experience my spirit returning to the room on earth, I passed through a place where I saw the enemy. He was holding two playing cards; one said, “Victory” and one said, “Defeat.” Then without any words spoken to me, I suddenly knew that if the church (His sons and daughters) continued to have an “outcome” mentality of victory or defeat, rather than an overcoming mindset of eternal victory, it would enable the enemy to play that “defeat” card again and again. He held the victory card for himself and played the defeat card against the saints of God. But it was us who were empowering him to play it and even to hold it through believing that in any way, we can be defeated.

I knew that the Lord wanted us to have our minds renewed with the imperishable victory in found in heaven that swallows up death and defeat. We are to become a people who believe that for those “in Christ”, victory is the only outcome— no matter what our natural eyes see or circumstances seek to dictate.

In The Throne Room, I experienced how death and defeat was swallowed up in absolute victory. The response of all in this place was to cry out “Holy, holy, holy.”

God is bringing a transformation to his Church from being an “outcome minded” people to “overcoming minded” people. We must remove the DEFEAT card from the enemy’s hand; then he can no longer play it against God’s people. Every time he plays this defeat card, and it is believed (due to not seeing the outcome we desired or hoped for) it releases doubt, defeat, depression and disillusionment which opens all kinds of doors to become more worldly minded. We move further away from the awareness of his holiness and begin to embrace the lies that we can be or are defeated.

We are to be heavenly minded and everything that we experienced is swallowed up in the victory that Jesus secured for us over 2000 years ago. Every experience, even the painful ones, should draw us closer to heaven where we are healed by who he is and every attribute that is within him. The hard “perishable and temporal experiences should be brought to the imperishable and eternal truth where they are clothed with garments of praise. Then, even in our times of weeping, we would cry out, “Holy!”

The enemy is using this defeat card as his trump card (a valuable resource that may be used, especially as a surprise, in order to gain an advantage) against God’s people. But God is going to break the mindset that allows room for defeat, and he will renew our minds with a revelation of his victory.

I am not saying that all painful and difficult things will stop happening here on earth if we remove this card from Satan’s hand, but I am saying that if we will ask God to renew our minds, so that the only possible outcome for those in Christ is victory then the devastating effects of believing defeat (thus, experiencing defeat) will stop.

I want to say this with absolute conviction, “ULTIMATELY, FOR THOSE IN CHRIST- THE ONLY OUTCOME IS VICTORY.” That was what I took away from these thirty minutes in The Throne Room.

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:54

In that place I was immersed in the imperishable— the eternal— and experienced everything relating to death and defeat being swallowed up in victory. EVERYTHING!

I am praying that God would, by his Spirit, transform our minds and beliefs to become an “overcoming minded people” rather than an “outcome minded people.” I believe that God is going to replace the mindset that has made room for defeat to be swallowed up in the revelation of his victory. It is time to pull that defeat card out of the enemy’s hand leaving him with only a victory card that declares “his defeat!”

God is inviting us into the throne room where we will encounter and experience the imperishable truth that overcomes our temporal and perishable circumstances and experiences. This will break off trauma, depression, defeat and hope deferred. It will release the truth that says, “Victory is the only imperishable truth for those in Christ.” This will cause the saints on earth to join with those in heaven as we with one voice cry out, “Holy, holy, holy are YOU!”
