God Is For You!!

May 23.2019– Kathi Pelton

• When everything seems against you… “I am for you.”

• When the odds are stacked against you… “I will tip the scales in your favor.”

• When you feel alone and without help… “I am with you to help you.”

• When you have no answers… “I will give you wisdom & miracles.”

• When you cannot find your way… “I will carry you and comfort you.”

• When you feel too weak to carry on… “I will be the strength that you need.”

• When you face the impossible… “Remember—I make all things possible!”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans‬ ‭8:28-31‬ ‭

The Rooster is Announcing the Dawning of a New Day

by Kathi Pelton

On August 2, 2007 I had an article published on The Elijah List called “The Roosters Are Crowing, “It’s A New Day!” (http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=5541).This word was birthed out of a time where our family was recovering from losing our home in a fire just months earlier. A Mennonite couple from Pennsylvania felt led of the Spirit to go on a treasure hunt with God to buy our family a prophetic gift. What they were led to buy for us was a beautifully crafted ceramic rooster to signal a “new day is dawning”.

Now, twelve years later, I am once again being reminded again and again of that rooster. It started a few weeks back when some friends and I was doing a “treasure hunt” for property. We were waking the grounds of a magnificent estate that is for sale and on one of the patios was a life size statue of a rooster. To say that it was out of place for this setting would be an understatement! But the “out of place” caused it to stand out to us! Immediately I remembered my prophetic gift from 2007 that said that beauty would come forth from our ashes and a rooster announced “the dawning of a new day.”

Since that day a couple weeks ago I have been seeing roosters everywhere! I hear the sound of their early morning crowing deep in my spirit which is awakening the dawn of a new day and awakening hope!

Yesterday I wrote a word about barn revivals and barn raisings that will occur in the days ahead. As I released that word I saw in my spirit a weather vane on the top of a barn. This weather vane had a rooster on it and was spinning around and around because the wind of the spirit was coming from every direction. It was like a holy whirlwind that was touching these barns. Then last night I was watching a news station that was tracking a tornado that had touched down in Ford County, Kansas. The storm chasers who were following it kept reporting how it was coming upon barns and only touching the barns. As I was watching this unfold before my eyes I once again began to see in my spirit the weather vane with the rooster on top of the barn that was spinning from the wind that was coming from every direction. It was a sign in the natural of what will come and touch barns…only the wind of the Spirit will restore and not destroy.

God often speaks to me through visions (I’m a seer), the natural visual things and through natural events that declare spiritual truths. In this season I am seeing barns, roosters, fire, wind and the dawning of a new day. These are not separate but rather they converge together to paint a picture of what the Lord is about to do.

I believe that this is a prophetic sign for America! Just as we were sent a prophetic gift of a rooster twelve years ago; God is sending the church a prophetic sign and gift of a rooster that announces a new day…a day where revival will come upon communities as we return to our grass roots of gathering together on homesteads (in barns). We will see unity come from sharing life together, sharing meals together and raising barns together. Family, community and gathering in love will cause the Spirit’s fire to fall and the wind to blow. Homesteads will host the presence of God and become portals of miracles, signs and wonders.

This is a time to restore those old barns, build new barns and gather in barns because it is a new day! The stalls will be full again, the vats will overflow, the grain will be plentiful and we will rejoice!

“Consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month. Since the day that the foundation of the Lord ‘s temple was laid, consider: Is the seed yet in the barn? Indeed, the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have yielded nothing. But from this day on I will bless you.”” Haggai‬ ‭2:18-19‬ ‭

Where the barns have been empty and desolate, they now will be full! Where there had been no seed, now there will be an abundance of grain! Where there has been to yield from the land and from the work of your hands, now there will be more than enough. “From this day on I will bless you!” (On a side note and sign; my husband and I were married on the 24th day of the ninth month… Gregorian calendar not Jewish calendar).

Though I believe that this is specifically a word for America, I also see it touching other nations. Canada, Australia, Argentina, Japan, Scotland, Mexico, Brazil…and many other nations will hear the crow of the rooster to announce a new day that brings them into harvest and blessings.

The rooster is crowing…”It’s a new day!”

Faith, Finances and Fruitfulness

by Kathi Pelton

Today I was reminded of the story in John 6 of the boy who offered his lunch (loaves and fish) to the Lord. It is such a beautiful example of what God can do with our offering.

“‘There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they for so many? Jesus said, ‘Have the people sit down.’ Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated. So also the fish, as much as they wanted. And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, ‘Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost. ‘ So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves left by those who had eaten. When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, ‘This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!’” John‬ ‭6:9-14‬ ‭

The offerings that we bring often feel insignificant compared to the great need that is before us. But when all that we have (both small and large) is placed into the Lord’s hands, He blesses it and multiplied it to feed the multitudes. Not only that—there is always more than enough with leftovers that exceed the original offering. In this story the boy who offered his lunch not only still ate and was “filled” but I believe that this increase was counted to his credit! Not only were the people’s hunger satisfied but the miracle of multiplication revealed Jesus to the masses. They believed!

This seemingly small act of faith on the part of this boy brought increased fruitfulness not only for him but for the multitudes. It is still revealing Jesus today and increasing the faith of those who merely have “a lunch” to offer.

My husband and I have been in full-time ministry for many years. The majority of our time in ministry we have been supported by those who the Lord prompted to support us financially. On an emotional level this was a hard adjustment for us when we started on that path. We had been used to being the ones who supported others and suddenly needed to be supported. When God called us to live in another country to oversee a house of prayer, we had to “go” and trust that the Lord would bring generous givers to surround our lives as we gave our “yes” to His call. We quickly had to learn absolute trust and thanksgiving in times of plenty and times of hunger.

Throughout the years of living upon the support of others (amazing and beautiful people!), we had to come to terms with the truth that Paul speaks of in Philippians 4 regarding his own ministry and support, when he writes, “Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.”

Our hearts, like Paul’s, have always been to give our all and give our “yes” to all that the Lord asks of us (whether giving or going). Though there are times of great struggle and sacrifice, we know that He is worthy of it all. We have come to understand through these verses in Philippians 4 that the burden or weight that we often felt as people supported us was wrong thinking. Let’s look at what Paul says about those who supported him and the work he was doing,

“Yet it was kind of you to share my trouble. And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit. I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.” Philippians‬ ‭4:14-20‬ ‭

God equally credits the fruitfulness of Paul’s ministry to those who stood in the place of support. Although Paul was the mouthpiece (and he was credited for that), those who offered financial support gave “an acceptable and pleasing offering to the Lord” and it was credited to them for all the fruit that came forth.

It is a partnership! One is not greater than the other because one cannot exist without the other. I live in the confident assurance that those who give are benefiting from the fruitfulness that comes from the work of those they give to. In light of this truth we all can focus on the work before us and pray for the increase of Kingdom fruitfulness; being confident that those hard working supporters are being blessed equally as much. The reward for the one who goes and the one who gives is the same!

I am sharing this because there is so much misunderstanding about this partnership and about the role of those who give and those who go. Often people hold back because they feel as though they give with no return. Or they give only a small measure because they feel as though all the fruit goes to those who are the mouthpiece or instrument of “going.” But according to Paul, he is able to “seek the fruit that was increased because of those who gave!” There must be those who plant the seed and those who water the seed. God sees both with equal importance, impact. and honor.

The one that “goes” and the one that “gives” are rewarded the same and credited for the increase of fruitfulness. Both take a posture of faith and live by faith even in two different roles.

I pray that this understanding takes the pressure off those who go and adds a blessing upon those that give. I have been in both roles; those who have given and those who have gone, and one was not above the other or more honorable than the other. No matter what role the Lord has called you to stand in; the increase of fruitfulness is credited to you. It is a pleasing sacrifice that will bring the increase of fruitfulness upon your life as well.

Watch As The Chaos Sent Against You Suddenly Becomes A Wave Of Destiny

by Kathi Pelton

I was taken into a vision this morning where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos and distraction sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it caught them off guard.

I’m from Northern California where the coastline is known for what are called, “sneaker waves”. These are very large and powerful waves that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline. These sneaker waves a known for pulling a swimmer or a person walking on the shore out into the turbulent sea.

This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It is as if you were swimming in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him upon shores of grace and suddenly you are caught by a sneaker wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the sea.

In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos of this sneaker wave struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person who was drowning. As I saw this I saw the Lord with them and heard Him speak these words,

“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”

When someone is drowning, the worst thing that they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax into full dependency upon the one who has come to save them the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.

The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. The fear has been blinding you from seeing Him but know this; He is there to rescue and save you.

The vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They began to relax into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to the shore. Yet it was not the shore that they began on but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny.

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us then had the attack not come. This is happening for many right now. We know from scripture that when the enemy comes…like a flood the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

Years ago the Lord told me to be aware that the demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. He and his army fall into absolute chaos and confusion…and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven!

If you have been caught by a spiritual “sneaker wave”that has pulled you into its grip, threatening to pull you under and drown you, then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the shore of destiny where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

An Answer To Your “Why God?”

by Kathi Pelton

By nature the human race desires answers to our questions from a young age. Around two years old a toddler will discover the word “why” and it will become one of their most frequently used words. The discovery of answers is how we learn and how we learn to navigate this world.

As we grow in maturity and develop our personal relationship with God we must learn to trust Him without always demanding an answer to the many “whys” that surround our journeys as we walk with Him. We know that He is good and that His plans are to bless us so we follow Him into unknown paths by faith believing that He will order our steps.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭

Our family has followed His voice by moving to other cities, states and even other countries while not understanding the many questions that flooded our minds in the process. After thirty (Yes…THIRTY) moves to different homes in thirty-five years of marriage we could just stop unpacking and say, “Why bother?” But we always decide to bloom where we are planted; even if it’s for a short time.

You could spend sleepless nights trying to figure out the answers to so many of life’s “Why?” moments but in our journey we have learned that when the answers are hidden that God has a reason for that as well. Your journey may not be a move to a new home or city but you may be in the midst of a change or transition that causes you to have more questions than answers. You can ask Him why but if He doesn’t answer then know that he has a reason for His silence. You can trust Him in the unknown; knowing that He is holding you and leading you with plans to prosper and not harm you.

When I look back upon my many years of this “walk of faith” that my life has been on, I can truly say that I am grateful that He’s left many questions unanswered. If I had known more then I did at the time I might have feared that which I did not yet have grace to walk through. Or, I may have tried to orchestrate things to cause that answer to manifest in a wrong timing or way that wasn’t His way.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Proverbs 16:9,

“A man’s mind plans his way [as he journeys through life], But the LORD directs his steps and establishes them.”

I’ve told this story before but it’s worth repeating. One day I was praying for my son-in-law, Luke, while he was facing a big transition and decision. As I prayed for him I heard the Spirit say to me,

“Tell Luke that he cannot miss My will.”

Honestly I thought that I heard wrong because he has a free will and could go the wrong direction so I asked the Holy Spirit how this could be true. His answer amazed me. He said,

“If a man’s steps are committed to Me then even if he makes plans that are not right I will redirect them and establish them according to My will.”

Wow, what comforting words that brought great peace! These words have been proven to be true in my life and it has been true in the lives of my children. Worry flees when I believe those words. I can’t miss because my steps are committed to Him! Even if my steps begin to get off track He will redirect them and establish them according to His will.

There is a song called “Thy Will” by Hillary Scott. It is a prayer of surrender yields to the One who holds every answer in His hands. Here are some lyrics that can be your prayer when facing unanswered “why’s”,

I know you see me- I know you hear me, Lord- Your plans are for me- Goodness you have in store

I know you hear me- I know you see me, Lord- Your plans are for me- Goodness you have in store

So…

Thy will be done- Thy will be done- Thy will be done

Like a child on my knees- All that comes to me is- Thy will be done

Thy will be done- Thy will be done

I know you see me- I know you hear me, Lord”

(Writer(s): Hillary Scott, Emily Weisband and Bernie Herms)

Like a child we can trust our Father, even when we don’t understand. You may have many things that you’re facing right now that you don’t have answers for but you only need to understand one thing...HE IS GOOD and His plans for you are good!

This is your reality. He is good and in the midst of your “whys” you will see His goodness come forth. You will be the recipient of His goodness and a witness of His faithfulness.

Trust Him!

May the Force of His Faithfulness Go Forth

by Kathi Pelton

There is a thief that is always seeking a way into your home in order to rob you and your family of peace, blessings, unity and prosperity. The devil prowls, looking for an entrance point that he can go in through. It seems as though he and his cohorts are more active than usual and the Lord told me that His people need to “establish their spiritual home security system”.

Then I saw in my spirit what looked like a red laser beam of light around a home that spelled out these words,

“… His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark…” Psalm 91:4

What is a “bulwark”? It is a defensive wall of protection.

Today is the day to install His bulwark around your life…declare His faithfulness around your life, your home and your loved ones. Remove every breach of doubt and unbelief and replace it with shouts that declare, “He is faithful!”

The red laser beam represents the blood of Jesus that has created a “blood line” of protection around your life and your home. The blood of Jesus will always declare His faithfulness! I see this “security system” installed by faith around businesses, ministries, churches, schools and even government buildings. The establishment of faith in His faithfulness will raise up a shield and wall of protection around these places that the thief has breached.

God is fortifying all that pertains to you and all of the blessings being sent upon you. As you declare His faithfulness, invite the angels to come and restore your blessings (all that was previously stolen) and to now be stationed round about your life, family and home.

“The Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3

I am declaring over you that the unstoppable force of His faithfulness that was sealed by His blood will go forth on your behalf to guard you and all that pertains to you from everything that the enemy has sent against you!

His force is with you…happy May the Fourth!

“MAYDAY, MAYDAY!!”

by Kathi Pelton

On May 1, 2002 my very first word was published on The Elijah List. This word was a “breaker-word” for our lives and ministry. As I awoke this morning, May 1, 2019 the Spirit reminded me of it and said, “Kathi, this is a full circle moment and that word is for now once again.”

Here is the word…a then and now word!

MAYDAY! MAYDAY!” May 1, 2002

On April 30 the Lord told me to pay attention to May Day which was May 1st. I watched and listened all that day but nothing significant seemed to happen.

—————————

THE SHIP, TOSSED VIOLENTLY

—————————

Then last night I was taken into a vision in the middle of the night to a ship that was being tossed violently upon a very turbulent sea. It was very dark and the fog bank was so thick that you could not see a foot in front of you. As I was taken closer to the ship I could see that it had been storm tossed for some time now.

This ship was lost at sea. There was no way for the crew to find its way back to where it had come and yet it couldn’t see ahead to know where it was going. It seemed to be at the mercy of the storm which looked as though it would never end.

Nothing was secure upon this ship, everything was being tossed into the sea except the crew. Then I was taken into the ship where I saw one of the crew on the communications radio saying over and over, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!” I heard no response.

———————————–

THE LORD WAS ASKING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE DISTRESS CALL

———————————–

At this point I came out of the vision and realized that the Lord wasn’t asking me to pay attention to “May Day” (The date, May 1st) but He was asking me to pay attention to the distress call, “Mayday, mayday!”

I asked the Lord what this meant and He told me that many lives and ministries had recently been in the middle of a storm. Their vision had been blocked and their lives and plans tossed upon the rough sea. They had used up every means of self effort to find their way back to safety but the storm and lack of vision had left them lost at sea.

The Lord said that He has heard our distress calls. He has heard our call to Him, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!”

—————————-

RESCUE HOST IS ON THEIR WAY

—————————-

Though we do not yet see it, a rescue host is on their way. God has commissioned a great rescue host to come to us with all the provision to get us to safe harbor. This harbor will not be where we started because we can not go back there but it will be a new place, with new ships, new cargo, new crew members, new scenery, new life.

It was necessary to have everything tossed into the sea in order for the “New Order” to come. We have new orders and this host will bring to each one of us those orders. We have new passages that we have not known about but these will also be revealed to us.

We will have new vision, clearer vision.

We have new provisions that are on there way, provisions that we have not known of because they are not coming by “our efforts” but by His grace and help.

Our distress call has been heard…help is on the way.

Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of man plans his ways but the Lord orders his steps.”

Your Persistent Prayers Will Open the Door of Breakthrough

by Kathi Pelton

The other day we were blessed by having a team from YWAM (Youth With a Mission) come to our home to pray and prophesy over us as we face many transitions. During this precious time we put our daughter’s dog out on our deck. She was not a happy dog to be kept away from all of the excitement so she began scratching at our glass door. She scratched and scratched and scratched.

Her scratching began to become like the sound of fingernails going down a chalkboard. She was persistently pleading with her paws,

“Open the door, open the door, OPEN THE DOOR!”

I began to feel myself getting annoyed with her. I was about to get up to open the door to answer her persistent request when I suddenly heard the Holy Spirit speak to me,

“This puppy is like the story of the persistent widow who came before the unjust judge. Her persistence finally wore Him down and he granted her request. Persistent prayer will open the door for you.”

The story of the persistent widow goes like this,

Luke 18:1-8

Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’

“He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’”

Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?”

God is just, He is full of love and He WILL “stick up for you” against injustices. Though your trials may seem to drag on, your faith and persistent prayers are creating an atmosphere that bruises the enemy. Your prayers are not being ignored but they are doing a deep work in your life and character while shifting the atmosphere around your life as well.

I began to see our glass door, that was being scratched upon, as the enemy’s head. Our dog would not be dissuaded by the door that blocked her from her desire. Like the persistent widow, whose requests were like bruises upon this judge, so are our continual prayers bruising the enemy.

I hear the Spirit saying,

“The door will be opened for you!”

God is not ignoring you or deaf to your prayers but knows the perfect time to open the door for you. Though it feels like you’ve been left out in the cold (without your desired answer), suddenly and at the appointed time the door will open and you will enter with great joy.

Do not stop praying. Do not stop knocking at the door before you and do not believe the lie that God is ignoring your request. You are scratching, bruising and tearing down the lie that “God is not faithful” and defeating the persistent enemy that taunts His sons and daughters with accusations of being orphans. Abandonment is not possible for the sons and daughters of God. He will never leave nor forsake you! You will see the faithfulness of God come to your aid.

I will finish with the truth and encouragement from Romans 5:1-5,

“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”

You are being changed through your persistence and patience. You will never be the same and when the door opens you will walk through it as a different person…as the person He created you to be.

He dearly loves us!
