America Shall Be Saved

Kathi Pelton

Last night at Portland 2018 (Compassion to Action) we experienced a place and time in worship that everyone knew was significant and sovereign. Thousands upon thousands of people spontaneously began to sing the words, “Worthy is the Lamb” over and over; with no instruments and no worship leader except the Holy Spirit.

It was such a holy time…words cannot express it. As it continued, it built like a surge in the Spirit that was creating a tsunami affect upon the city of Portland and upon the nation. It was a tsunami of millions of angels joined by thousands of voices that united heaven and earth in one song and declaration….worthy is the Lamb!

As this went on every worship leader was laid out on the stage and the words that were on the large screen above the stage read, “America Shall Be Saved”. I literally experienced our nation being moved from judgement to mercy as we saturated the atmosphere with the words that are sung to the One who sits on the throne, “Worthy is the Lamb”. It was as though He responded with the declaration, “America, mercy triumphs over judgement!” (James 2:13)

The words and scene from Revelation 5 have now become more real than ever.

“Then I saw a Lamb that looked as if it had been slaughtered, but it was now standing between the throne and the four living beings and among the twenty-four elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which represent the sevenfold Spirit of God that is sent out into every part of the earth. He stepped forward and took the scroll from the right hand of the one sitting on the throne. And when he took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they held gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.” Then I looked again, and I heard the voices of thousands and millions of angels around the throne and of the living beings and the elders. And they sang in a mighty chorus: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”” Revelation‬ ‭5:6-12‬

Ready For Take Off

Kathi Pelton

As I sat down to listen to the voice of God today, I heard the words,

“You are ready for take off!”

This is a word for those who have been in a time of preparation and anticipation.

As I heard these words my mind immediately flashed to a movie with Tom Hanks called “The Terminal”. In this movie his character is stuck waiting in an airport terminal for many months because he cannot legally go back to where he came from but could not enter into where he was going. I sense that many have been in a time like this where “in faith” they moved out from the old but have not been able to step into the new. It has been like a state of limbo for them. The Lord wants you to know that this “in between” place has not been in vain because you could not stay in the old and yet the timing of the Lord for the new had not yet come upon you. You have been upon a threshold in time.

September has been a month that is calling your name and between now and the close of 2018 there will be a transition into take off. You have been made ready. This time of the “in between” has felt frustrating and maybe even fruitless but it has aligned timing and it has aligned truth. It has also made you hungry and thirsty for Him like never before. You have become more intimate with Him in this place of waiting.

It’s time to pack up your belongings from the place that you’ve been camping (spiritually speaking) because the temporary or in between place is coming to a close and you will take off into the new. You’ve never been this way before so don’t try to make sense of it or bring pre-conceived ideas into it because they will merely cause added baggage to your journey.

Your terminal time is coming to a close and you are about to take off!

A Double Rainbow Will Come After Your Storm

Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me a vision of a dark storm that has touched many lives; wreaking havoc and bringing destruction. After the storm began to move past these lives a vibrant double rainbow appeared over their lives. It was a promise of double for all of the trouble that these storms had brought. This storm may have been both natural and spiritual; either way the promise of a double restoration (better than if the storm had never come) remains true.

I heard two (double) scriptures to go along with this picture,

“Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7

And,

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Genesis 50:20

You will receive double! Double honor, double prosperity and everlasting joy! The testimony of God’s restoration will bring many to know Him and come to trust in Him.

A rainbow has seven colors within it and the double rainbow has double sevens. As I saw the double sevens I was led to Psalm 77 where the psalmist is in a deep storm of despair and questions if the promises of God will fail him. Then, in his despair, he remembers what God did for Moses and the children of Israel when He parted the Red Sea. He then “gains strength by remembering this testimony”.

While the storm is upon you, look to the testimonies of old and pull on the faithfulness of those promises fulfilled to get you through to the other side. There you will find your double!

He will do it again!!

A Word for Moms

Kathi Pelton

Today we are driving a long 800 miles to go home after a week with our oldest daughter and youngest son who live in California. Whenever I leave my kids my mom’s heart is torn. I look into their eyes and I know intimately every look, every longing, every need and fear. When we say good-bye we linger in the embrace longer than we ought to and my heart stays in the embrace long after we physically separate.

As a mom I have had to learn an important truth; our Heavenly Father loves them even more than I do. He knows their looks, longings, needs, fears and thoughts even more intimately than I do. Though that’s hard to believe, it remains true. Mom’s often struggle with the compulsion to carry their kids (young or grown) in a way that can quickly turn into anxiety or worry. They are carried with us every where we go no matter their age.

The truth is that my moments of worry have never helped my kids! I have learned throughout the years to daily bring them before the throne of grace and lay them down in the arms of the One who loves them most. The greatest gift that I can give my children is to daily surrender and dedicate them to the absolute faithfulness of God. Though there are days that tears of intercession pour; as I join my heart with the Lord’s regarding them. But when I arise from the place of prayer I am confident of His plans and protection over them. They are then carried in my heart by hope and faith in something and someone greater than me.

If you are carrying your children today in a way that is weighing you down and causing you anxiety then take them to the arms of Jesus. He will take your burden, your concerns and everything that they need into the infinite care of His perfect love. He knows the way that they are to go and He will lead them. He will comfort them and His faithfulness will be proven true in their lives.

In the place of prayer we do our best “mothering”. As we partner with the One who loves them most we become a bridge that they can cross over into the heart of God. In prayer and partnership with God we see fears turn into confident assurance and anxiety turn into peace as we nurture them with a heart that surrenders them to a greater love than our own.

The greatest affect that you will have in your children’s lives will happen in prayer. When they are nearby, hold them close but when you separate (whether to send them off to school or because they have grown into adults) bring them before God and surrender them to His love and care. He is more than enough for all that they need.

Superman Will Arise

Kathi Pelton

Recently the Lord took me into a vision where I saw men and women who had the appearance of Clark Kent. They were in business attire, wearing glasses, performing menial jobs, and they were virtually unnoticed by those around them. Beneath their outward appearances they had been prepared for an unveiling. Then in a sudden moment of alert or awakening they arose from their desks and ran to the nearest phone booth, discarding their glasses along the way, and transformed into Superman.

I asked the Holy Spirit why I was seeing this scene and He showed me that many of His people have been living with a “hidden identity” that kept them from influence, authority, and power; but very soon His Spirit would come upon them and it would be time for them to transform into the heroes of faith that they are called to be. They have been prepared for the day of His power.

These unknown and even unnoticed ones have been prepared for the time when the Lord will suddenly transform them into history changers and chain breakers: supernatural men and women. They will move in power because of the power of the blood of Jesus and because they bear His name upon their chests—they wear the breastplate of righteousness.

The time is coming, and quickly coming, for these hidden heroes to emerge with strength and power bestowed by their heavenly Father. Their training has been in the secret place, unnoticed and unrecognized by those around them. They will carry His name and rescue many captives. They will be given authority that causes time to align with the Lord’s timing of events and seasons. They will soar above the chaos and with great love receive strategies and wisdom regarding what issues and difficulties to touch and how to touch them. They will be counted among great heroes of faith like we read of in Hebrews 11. Obedience to His voice, His instructions and His timing has aligned them with God’s timing.

Get ready to see Superman arise!

Time for 11:11

Kathi Pelton

The Wheat Field Vision

On September 11th, 2017 I was taken into a vision where I saw a wheat field that went on as far as I could see in every direction. As I looked out upon this golden sea of wheat, suddenly thousands of butterflies emerged. They flew out from the stalks of wheat and took flight in all different direction. It was one of the most beautiful visions I had ever seen.

What had begun as a dirt field had transformed into a golden field of what appeared to be wheat but was actually thousands upon thousands of butterflies that had just emerged from their cocoons. And, what I thought were stalks of wheat were actually hands and arms that had cocooned these beautiful transformed lives.

Transformation is now happening in the Earth’s fields. Lives that crawled upon the ground like caterpillars have been enveloped in an atmosphere of love by those who worship, those who pray and those who go out to prepare the way. They have created a safe environment for transformation and metamorphosis to occur in lives, cities and nations.

The Earth is Pregnant

We often hear our planet called “Mother Earth”. Though this is not a Christian term, I saw a picture of the earth and she was pregnant and about to give birth.

The church is the midwife that is assisting with the birthing of these multiple sons and daughters. Then suddenly, the time of birthing will arrive. The time of labor and transition is upon her even now and very soon the children will come forth.

Like the thousands upon thousands of butterflies in my vision, so will be the sons and daughters born into the Kingdom of God upon planet Earth.

The Transformation of Cities

Transition is happening not only in individual lives but in cities as well. People are being brought to cities and regions where preparations have been made in the land and in the spiritual atmosphere that will result in a great harvest of souls.

This week I heard a report that in my city alone a thousand people each week are relocating here (Portland, Oregon). A thousand per week!!!

Why? Because the church as been preparing the city and shifting the spiritual atmosphere for many years to make this a place where seeds will grow, where caterpillars can be changed into butterflies, where orphans can become sons and daughters and strangers can find family. It will be a “city of refuge” and a resting place for our God. There are many such cities throughout the earth.

The lost may believe that they are moving for reasons that are economic, political, social or educational but they are actually seeds in the field of that city or caterpillars that are about to transform in the place where prayer, praise and workers have been sent.

God is also sending prepared workers to these cities to complete the preparation and serve in this great harvest and move of God.

Sarah Will Give Birth

The preparations have been happening for many years. The church as been pregnant with the promise of giving birth to these sons and daughters for so long now that many abandoned hope and others allowed hope deferred to give birth to doubt. Like Sarah, who laughed when the promise of motherhood was given to her in her old age, many have laughed at these cities who seem the most unlikely to give birth. BUT GOD!!

Hebrews 11:11 will emerge once again and “Sarah-Cities” will suddenly give birth to the promise of the Lord. Though the waiting time has been long; the promise will come forth!

“It was by faith that even Sarah was able to have a child, though she was barren and was too old. She believed that God would keep his promise.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:11‬ ‭

Transition is happening even now. It is opening the way for the birthing of the promise. Change is in the air and desires fulfilled will be birthed. Sarah’s arms will be filled and she will look into the face of her promise fulfilled.

“Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. Isaiah 54:1

Spiritually desolate cities will suddenly become cities of joy! It is far closer than we can imagine…though the promise has tarried, suddenly it will be fulfilled.

“When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm‬ ‭126:1-3‬ ‭

5779: A Womb and a Reveal

Kathi Pelton

The Lord spoke to me that this Jewish New Year (5779)that begins tonight at sundown, is a chamber room or womb. I saw these chambers like a womb where what has been conceived in the heart of God is growing within His bride’s body. Within this chamber or “womb” His secrets and goodness will be revealed to those who yielded to the intimacy and oneness that He invited His bride into throughout the previous year. He shares His secrets with those who walk in the fear of the Lord and who have been found trustworthy through intimacy.

God’s hidden goodness will be revealed to those who seek Him. Within the limitless boundaries of His goodness there is wisdom and understanding. Within the revelation of His goodness there is healing and strength. Within the experience of His goodness there is refreshing and restoration. Within the womb of His goodness there is great hope and new life.

“Yet I am confident I will see the LORD’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.” Psalm 27:13

In August the Lord highlighted Isaiah 8 to me. We read of a scroll where the Hebrew words “Maher-shalal-hash-baz” are written upon it; meaning, “Hurry to the spoils!” or “He has made haste to the plunder!” I believe that this will be a year where we will see the Lord plunder the enemy’s camp and He will give the spoils to those who will steward the resources with purity and righteousness. They will not touch what the Lord says, “Do not touch” but they will receive the plunder that the Lord takes for the righteous. His bride will not walk in the fear of man but she will walk in the fear of the Lord which is the womb of Psalm 91 (the place of abiding).

“The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread.” Isaiah‬ ‭8:13‬ ‭

The plans and strategies of the enemy will be nullified and the Lord will come in like a flood to raise up His glorious standard against him. Jesus will partner with His bride, who is one with Him and carries His zeal to see His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. His fierce and jealous love will judge that which is unholy in order to plunder what has been captured and held captive by demonic forces.

“Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.” Isaiah‬ ‭8:10

The oneness and unity has conceived a generation that will bring forth what all creation has been groaning for.

“Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.” Romans‬ ‭8:18-19‬ ‭

I believe that this is a “marker year” that we see a generation birthed that walks in the goodness of God and the fear of the Lord; fully surrendered to the Captain of the Lord of Hosts. This generation will be alert and awake to hear and respond when the Lord calls to them. They will be humble, teachable, and submitted to His voice. They will understand intimacy which will cause them to walk in authority. They will be intimately aquatinted with His goodness and know the sound of His voice that thunders like the shofar. They were conceived in intimacy and they are growing in the womb of surrender. Like Mary, they are carried by the ones who have said,

“Be it unto me according to your word.” Luke 1:38

Lastly, I saw a vision of a married couple receiving a sonogram for a baby that they had conceived. Together they saw the babies features and the gender was revealed. I believe that this year will be a year that together with our Bridegroom we will be shown what we have conceived together within our spiritual wombs. It is interesting to me that there is such a battle over “gender” and identity in the world today and at the same time most couples celebrate pregnancies through “gender reveal parties.” It’s quite a contrast. God is about to touch this issue in ways that only He could. He will heal identity issues in many and break the confusion that has sent so many lives into upheaval. There will be a generation that restores true identity and carries a revelation of the goodness of our God to the lost.

We welcome this new year and cross fully over the threshold today into the place where His secrets are shared, His goodness is experienced and true identity is revealed.

Feeling Anxious or Depressed?

Kathi Pelton

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Did you know that not all that you experience may be “you”? We are spiritual beings with physical bodies and souls that often react to unseen things. What feels like a problem in you may actually be something that you are perceiving outside of you.

When I was twenty years old my husband and I moved across the country to attend Bible college. When we arrived and walked onto the campus I immediately felt like something was wrong. I remember telling my husband, “I think we just made a huge mistake.”

Something inside of me shifted in that moment that caused me to go from a young, happy, and carefree newlywed to someone feeling anxious, oppressed and eventually depressed. In our years at that college I watched as a number of women (professors’ wives) experience nervous breakdowns. All that I knew was that something was wrong but everyone just said that it was me and my emotional immaturity.

Finally, as my husband watched me go from emotional turmoil into physical illness he decided to take me back home before graduating. I remember feeling so badly that all of the hard work that he had done during his years of studies (getting straight A’s) and his dreams of translating Bibles and missions work was being lost because of me. Then, just a few months after returned home the news came that the chancellor of this college had been involved with prostitutes as well as other sins of pride and impurities. The school lost its accreditation and most of the students left. It was televised all over the world.

Why am I telling you this story? Because we didn’t understand that I carried a discernment gift or how I was to walk with it. The gift of the discerning of spirits is very misunderstood and often not recognized by the Church. Often people who experience physical and emotional reactions to spiritual environments are carrying a gift of discernment (not always but more often than we realize). The good news is that this is a redemptive gift that can not only benefit you but benefit those around you and the place that you live if it is handled properly.

I had to learn how to recognize when a physical or emotional reaction required spiritual tools that brought a healthy response. The problem was that these “reactions of the soul” almost always feel very personal and very disorienting. I didn’t understand in the early years how I could be feeling happy one moment and the next moment having thoughts like, “I just want to die!” These extremes are often experienced by those who have this gift. More than likely, in those moments, I was picking up a spirit of death or suicide that was in someone or over an area.

There have been three keys in my life for walking with this gift (that surely didn’t feel like a gift for many years). The first key was to allow the Lord to heal me from all of the trauma in my past and to allow the Lord to deliver me from spirits that wanted to destroy me. Second was to allow my life to be aligned fully with the Spirit and the Word. Third was to allow intercession to be the place that these extreme senses and emotions were processed.

When I discovered the place of intercession I found that the Lord would take me from a reaction that began in my body (my physical senses), then hit my soul (emotions/thoughts) to the place of my spirit where His Spirit brought forth a proper response through prayer and wisdom (understanding). This would not only accomplish what the gift was put there for but it would also lift from me the burden that—if kept in my soul—would have become a “heavy yoke”.

There is a lot going on in our world and in lives around us all the time. Discerning spirits does not have to be devastating or detrimental but rather the launching pad for amazing breakthrough. I believe one of the most threatening things to the enemy is the gift of discernment and the discovery of how to walk in it. As this is understood, the intercession that accompanies it, grounded in truth and wisdom, will begin to shift lives, cities, and nations.

If you are feeling anxious or depressed don’t stop there and assume that it’s just you! Go to the Spirit and ask the Lord for wisdom. Seek healing, get grounded in truth, and learn how to partner with the great Intercessor, Jesus, to see His Kingdom come. His yoke is easy and His burden is light.

God Will Do For You What You Cannot Do For Yourself

Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me people who were lying in bed with their minds filled with anxious thoughts that led them to conclusions of dread and doom for the days ahead. But the Father came to comfort them saying,

“Do not fear, do not worry, and do not dread the days ahead for I will do for you what you cannot do for yourself. You can trust me.”

As the people responded in confident trust, the gripping fear washed away and peace restored them to rest in His promises.

If you are being driven by fear and anxious thoughts then the Lord wants you to hear His words of truth and words of hope. He is not unaware of what you are facing and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself.

Your sleepless nights that lead your thoughts down dead-end roads and hopeless prospects are being exchanged for the deep sleep of a baby in its mother’s arms and the thoughts that bring your hopes into a vast space with abundance before you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

You will lie down in peace and wake up in joy because the Lord has taken up your cause! Though you have not been able to find your way though the tangled net that you are caught in, watch now: the Lord will rescue you.

I declare peace over you, peace over your mind and peace over your body. Though you don’t feel adequate or able to find your way out of the place that you find yourself in, know this: He is able to rescue you!

“Such is the confidence and steadfast reliance and absolute trust that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficiently qualified in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency and qualifications come from God.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:4-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Christ qualifies you for success, for breakthrough and for a positive outcome. It is in yielding your life to the place of “absolute reliance and trust through Christ toward God” that your confidence is restored and you are saved.

Have you ever seen a wild deer caught in barbed wire fencing? It will flail in fear only to find itself held tighter in the snare’s grip. When rescuers come to free the deer they must hold it still in order to free it and keep it from greater harm. The Lord is holding you still and cutting away the barbs and snares that you find yourself caught in. Do not fear for He is with you and freeing you from the tangled snare that you are caught in. He is doing for you what you cannot do for yourself!

Be calm, be still and watch to see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf.
