“I Felt A Disturbance In The Force”

Kathi Pelton

Our family has been having such a beautiful holiday season but yesterday something felt “off” from the beginning of the day. I thought it was because our sweet five year old grandson fell hard while running to his bus (face first in a mud puddle) but even after his little crisis the “off” feeling continued.

Being a discerner I try to remember that sometimes an off day is not merely circumstantial but spiritual in nature. I often joke with my family and say, “I felt a great disturbance in the force.” (a line from Star Wars when the dark side has released something evil).

As the day progressed yesterday the “disturbance” continued, finally catching my attention that this was not circumstantial but indeed spiritual. By the end of the day I had confirmation that the enemy was releasing a surprise attack to steal peace, joy, unity and to create irritation and discord. I began praying immediately.

I woke up this morning at exactly 3:33 a.m. from a dream where there was a double death, a lot of confusion and disunity. I knew that I was to get up and pray from an offensive posture and bind the assignments sent from the “dark side” and declare life, peace, joy, light, wonder, unity, oneness and awe over God’s people and over the land.

Did you feel this disturbance? If so, you may be discerning an assignment! The next step is intercession. We do not have to tolerate spirits that provoke the soul to offense, twist words, badger, irritate or even push you face first in the mud! We can arise, wipe ourselves off and get the strategy of our King to tear the assignment down. When we discern a disturbance it is time to get on our knees and battle in worship and prayer!

So…I declare over you, over the people of God and over the land “peace be still”. Peace to every storm that has come to cause unrest, division, discord and destruction. By the authority of Jesus Christ I bind every demonic spirit that stirs up strife, provokes the soul and robs God of the worship that He is due. I loose the peace of God, that surpasses understanding, to guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). I call upon the Spirit of the Lord to take control of every place in your soul that would react defensively rather than respond offensively. Holy Spirit cause Your people to discern rightly and then to move in both humility and authority to put all offense and all accusation under our feet. I declare a release of love that confounds this assignment and sends it back upon the enemy’s camp.

Today, be mindful of the atmosphere around you, be wise in your actions, be aware of those moments that provoke your soul and take hold of the peace spoken of in Philippians 4:7. Release it over your life, your home, your family, your church, your city and your nation.

“…And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

When there is a disturbance in the force the people of God take it by force and restore peace!

Christmas Blessing

On that bright night, so long ago in Bethlehem, the Savior of the world came to us in the form of a tiny baby. He was born to a young Jewish girl who began the high honor of being the mother of the long awaited Messiah with the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

Her words of surrender made a way for the ultimate surrender; His life. His existence on earth began with her surrender and ended with his surrender.

Today, we honor the legacy of Mary by continuing a posture of surrendering our all to the One who gave His all for us. His “all” ushered us into freedom from sin, death and captivity. Our surrender allows us to enter into the fullness of that freedom.

What a joy to be grafted into the bloodline of that baby who changed the world at the moment of his conception as his young, virgin mother spoke the words that now rest on our lips,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

The stars that shone so bright on that night still light up our darkness and announce that a Savior has been born unto us. The angels that witnessed the birth of our Messiah still today sing,

“Glory to God in the highest, and peace, goodwill to man.”

Let us join in with their song and give our lives as an offering to Him. Let us bring the very thing that He came and died for…you and me.

How can we say thank you for this gift that cost His all? By holding nothing back! If there is anything that has been held back in your life or heart today go and lay it at His feet. He takes every offering and breathes life and salvation upon them. Every offering becomes blessed when surrendered to Jesus.

I bless you this Christmas with my prayers that you will have courage and grace to offer your all. It is the gift He paid for and that will come back upon you abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine.

Merry Christmas and Glory to God in the Highest…peace and goodwill upon you and your household!

With Love~ Kathi Pelton and the entire Pelton Family

Hear, Obey and Watch God Move

Kathi Pelton

We are in a time where the Lord is raising up a people who will listen for His voice of wisdom (instruction) and then they will obey. These will be a people who will not be dictated to by circumstances or who will delay because they don’t “see” the physical manifestation of the resources needed but they will hear, obey and then see God move!

God has had my husband and I pioneer this type of life and walk for the past twenty years on behalf of our family (and His family) and now we are seeing our children walk in this way. Faith is not what is seen or else it would not be faith. Faith is in the unseen promise and yet it is our assurance of things promised and hoped for.

When the Lord speaks, it is an invitation to respond. As we add our “yes” it becomes our agreement and partnership with His invitation. Then as we obey we begin to see God move. Of course we need to seek His timing but in my experience He is faithful to make that known. Delaying your “yes” based on needing to see the provision for the way is like not responding to the invitation. Your yes attaches your life to the provision of heaven.

Our family has watched time and time again the miraculous and amazing provision of the Lord as we said yes to what looked absolutely impossible in the natural but we had “heavenly assurance” because He spoke, we obeyed in faith and then God moved.

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

Isaiah 30:21

Make a practice of listening and it will open your spiritual ears to hear clearly! As you hear be sure to obey and watch how your faith and confidence grows. This will prepare you to hear and obey the things that exceed your wildest dreams.

I often hear people question why God doesn’t use them to do the “greater works”. May I suggest that He uses those who have made it their lifestyle to listen and obey? I believe He has amazing plans for every one of His people. The key to living in that plan is to walk in it…it is the true “road less traveled.” The path of practical living usually leads to the ordinary but the path of supernatural living leads to the extraordinary.

Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.” Luke 11:28

Both His written Word and spoken word need to be heard and practiced. Jesus is the door and He is the Word…and His words, when put into action, become the doorway to living an abundant life.

You can trust Him! He is faithful to all of His promises. When the Lord asked something of you there is always a guarantee and promise attached to it. He does not ask and then leave you without provision. It may not always look like you’d expect but it will come in a way that will have His fingerprints all over it.

Let’s finish this year with ears to hear, a heart that responds and feet that walk it out. This will make 2019 a year of movement because His people will no longer be stagnant but moving in faith at the sound of His voice. Maybe a move of God begins with feet that move!

Light and New Beginnings

On this final night of Hanukkah, as you light the eighth candle, may the full restoration of your temple (A temple of the Holy Spirit) be established, the full restoration of His Kindgom within you and your home be established and may the oil that releases miracles be fully prepared and purified within you.

I declare and decree purity, restoration, the return of all things that have been taken from you, the manifestation of unprecedented miracles come upon you, new beginnings and a great light in the places that darkness has held you or your city captive.

Glory to God in the highest!

The Impossible Is Now Made Possible!

Kathi Pelton

The Lord led me to read out of 1 Kings 18. This chapter tells the story of when the prophets of Baal challenged Elijah as to “who is God?”; Baal or the God of Elijah. They both set up offerings and then called on their Gods to send fire upon the altar.

As I recounted how Elijah made his altar impossible to be consumed by fire (by pouring water on it, putting water trenches around it, etc) I thought of all the “impossibilities” that are even now upon many of the lives of God’s people. Maybe we are in a time that God will prove Himself to every false god and false prophet.

The prophets of Baal shouted to their god, they cut themselves until blood gushed out, they pounded their chests and yet their god did nothing. But Elijah drenched his offering with water and then prayed this prayer,

“O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”

Then after his prayer, fire fell and consumed his offering.

And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “The LORD —he is God! Yes, the LORD is God!”” 1 Kings‬ ‭18:36-37, 39‬ ‭

Your life and circumstances may feel like a “drenched altar” where you have offered your best. It looks impossible but may the faith and assurance that Elijah walked in come upon you to believe that our God will prove Himself faithful in your “impossible”.

Many of the prophetic voices have been prophesying with faith like Elijah had! They are prophesying the breakthrough of your impossible; often in the midst of their own impossibilities.

Fire will fall and consume your impossibilities!

1 Kings 18 goes on to tell of when Elijah prays for rain. Though there was no sign of rain he sends his servant seven times to look for rain clouds after he prayed. Finally his servant returns the seventh time and reports that he saw a small cloud, only the size of a man’s hand. Elijah tells his servant to go report to Ahab to go swiftly because an “abundance of rain” will come quickly…and it did!

For many weeks now I keep seeing in my spirit a small cloud, the size of a man’s hand and I know that it is a sign to prepare for a downpour or an abundance of rain to fall.

The impossible is possible with God and the spirit of Elijah is prophesying that the fire will consume the offering and the abundance of rain will pour down upon the dry land.

Get ready! Fire will fall and rain will pour down.

The Striking of the Match of Revival

Kathi Pelton

For a number of years now God has been speaking to His people out of Isaiah 43:19,

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

The threshold into “a new thing”, more often than not, is a longer earthly time period then we expect. It involves preparation, purification and perseverance to fully move into the new. The new thing begins in individual hearts that willingly go through reformation and transformation. Then those lives spill out the overflow causing a corporate remnant to carry the same heart of unity and agreement.

When this happens the sounds we hear begin to change to a new sound that has never been heard before, the desires of His yielded ones change and align with the desires of the Lord, the language changes releasing words that shift atmospheres and invite others in and lastly; hearts change! The change of heart is a softening, a surrender and a purification from flesh to spirit.

The past few years have been the preparation individually and corporately so that we may know how to embrace the new thing without being held back by old things. The old isn’t necessarily negative but it would be if brought into the new. Just as a single old piece of fruit will spoil an entire basket of new fruit harvested or the mixing of old into new wine will spoil the whole batch so it is with the “new thing” that the Lord is doing.

We must be taught how to walk in it and keep it pure. I believe that 2019 will begin to open up the way to walk in the new way. It will not be the fullness but rather the beginning. It will be a year of revelation and instructions that bring about the manifestation of a “new move” that has never been seen before. It will be like the lighting of a match that sets seasoned wood aflame. It will catch afire and spread upon all that it touches that has been “seasoned” through the time of preparation. It will touch drought filled lives that thirst for what is real and pure causing them to burn with holy fire.

I hear the words in my spirit from Isaiah 30:21 that say,

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

God is bringing wisdom, blueprints and instructions of how to walk in the new way. As doors open and the “seasoned ones” that have been set aflame move through those doors they will understand how to walk in a new way that keeps the way pure.

Even as we have seen the horrific fires throughout California over the past couple of years, this is merely a destructive counterfeit of the pure fire that brings life, harvest and great joy to all that it touches. As the natural conditions in California were ripe for wildfires that have destroyed so are the spiritual conditions ripe for that which will redeem and transform. The church in California will be a spiritual match for the whole nation (and nations) in the days and years to come.

Do not fear or be dismayed by the natural conditions of your city, state, nation or even of your current life situations because God is about to strike the enemy down and strike the match of revival that brings forth great victories.

December is a striking of the matches of new beginnings. Just as we’ve now entered into the Hanukkah season where eight matches are struck over eight nights (eight is the number of new beginnings), this month will usher us into a time of great light in the midst of darkness and the restoration of the temple. This will be a time of taking back lands and the things that were stolen. It will be a time of revival fire and abundant rain.

“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” Hoses 6:3

“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Joel 2:23

Revival fires and the latter rain are coming upon us!

Each year #GIVINGTUESDAY comes the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday where huge amounts of money are spent on gifts for ourselves and our loved ones. But then comes Tuesday which is a “Give back” day to support your favorite ministry or organization.

It is always the focus of our lives to give of ourselves; our resources, our time and our gifts each and every day of the year. This often comes with great sacrifice but we know that Jesus sacrificed His all for us so we are merely following His example of what love looks like.

One of our favorite verses on giving comes from Luke 6:38-40,

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

This is a promise that we have seen fulfilled in our lives continually. We have never been able to out-give God…all that we have ever given has come back upon us in a greater measure.

That is why we love #GIVINGTUESDAY! We know that every person who gives will receive back according to the measure that they give. This is true for you today as well. We love that what our ministry receives will come back on those who give with abundant and multiplied blessings. God keeps His Word!

God Is Shaking Off Your Despair…It’s Time To Rejoice!

Kathi Pelton

Yesterday my dear friend, Deborah Trujillo, did a fantastic job bringing the word of the Lord to our church here in Portland, Oregon. Her theme was “Faithfulness & Thanksgiving”. During her message she read the well-known verse from Philippians 4:6,

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

As she read this verse I went into a vision where I saw men and women arising from a sunken state of deep despair and anxiety. The spirit of truth suddenly came upon them causing them to realize that the despair and anxiety was a spirit sent against them that they had in their vulnerable state come into agreement with; causing them to lose hope. As they stood up, the power of the Lord came upon them and they began to shake and shake almost violently. The shaking was breaking the dark shroud that had cloaked them and brought despair upon them. It was crumbling like a rock wall, leaving the stones at their feet. Then suddenly they began to break into praise and thanksgiving to God. As the words of thanksgiving came forth their shaking turned into dancing; a completely abandoned dance before the Lord.

Then I saw the stones that were now crumbled at their feet and each one represented a request or need that they had carried. But rather than carrying their requests before the Lord with thanksgiving, anxiety had taken the place of prayers, petitions intermingled with thanksgiving causing each need to be cemented together by anxiety. This caused their needs to wall them in and shroud their lives with needs, lack and anxiety…which lead them to despair and hopelessness.

If this is you, I right now prophesy over you that the Spirit of the Lord is coming upon you and you will arise in His power and shake off the fortified wall of despair and hopelessness! His power will crumble the anxiety that caused your requests to become a fortress of never-ending needs and darkness. You will arise and shake off the darkness and despair. You will begin to shout out praise and thanksgiving which will cause you to dance with abandonment and rejoicing. You will dance upon the stones (needs) that lay at your feet. As Jesus is exalted higher than the needs before you they will begin to turn into answers and desires fulfilled. You will bring your needs before the Lord with prayers and petitions that are from a heart of thanksgiving. You will enter into new doors, new gates and new beginnings as you enter in with thanksgiving in your heart.

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” Psalm 100:4

The anxiety that has plagued your days and consumed your nights will be turned into a peace that surpasses your understanding. Philippians 4:6 goes from an instruction (of what to do with your needs and requests) to verse 7 where we see the result of following His instruction,

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

Thanksgiving will break every chain of anxiety and crumble the walls of despair! Today is the day to arise and with thanksgiving and make your requests known to Him; for He is faithful!!

GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS

Today Marks Your Eleventh Hour Victory

Kathi Pelton

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 100 years ago today the 1st World War (WW1) ended. It was called, the “war to end all wars.” Today many of you have been in a war that has hit every front in your life but just watch what God will do in this 11th hour.

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:11‬ ‭

He will now shift you into promises that are old and seem past the time that they can be hoped for or carried! Watch God fill you with strength to carry the fulfillment of His promise. For those who have stood and judged God as faithful and true…this is your time to receive the promise!

It’s Time To Get Ready For Your Promise To Be Fulfilled

Kathi Pelton

I saw in the spirit heaven bustling with busyness and great activity. It reminded me of the childhood scenes of Santa’s workshop just before the arrival of Christmas Eve. Angels were preparing things to be delivered, scrolls and heavenly blueprints were being looked over with great detail and a great preparation was underway. I also saw angels that were overseeing the preparation of hearts and the lives who were about to receive these gifts…for the gifts were promises fulfilled.

I immediately had an urgent sense of “get ready”. I found that interesting since our family is in the midst of a huge preparation as our oldest son and his family prepare to relocate from New York in order to move the the Pacific Northwest (where we live) to be a part of what God is doing here. At the very same time our youngest son is moving from California to the Portland area to also be with us as well. Our house has been bustling with activity and preparation as an influx of six more people come to join us at the end of the month. Even our hearts are being prepared for what is required to walk in unity, intimacy and oneness of hearts together.

This is a time to get ready and be prepared. First we prepare our hearts and then our lives to make room for what He is bringing. Far to often we want the promise but the ground work and preparation has not taken place. This causes chaos and warfare to immediately ensue when the promise arrives. Preparation is key to the fullness of joy that is to come with the fulfillment.

I am reminded of when one of our family members bought a pre-fabricated house and the great work that had to take place prior to its arrival. The land had to be cleared, a foundation had to be laid, electricity and plumbing had to be prepared and a wide space made for the massive trucks delivering it. It was an “all hands on deck” time. I see the preparation in His people’s hearts and lives in a similar way.

This is an “all hands on deck” kind of season. It’s a “get ready” and be preparing time and season. Something is arriving that must be prepared for. There must be room made in your heart and life for the gifts that are arriving. Do not be caught unaware because it will create unnecessary problems and warfare that will spoil the joy of this fulfillment.

“Listen! It’s the voice of someone shouting, “Clear the way through the wilderness for the LORD! Make a straight highway through the wasteland for our God!” Isaiah 40:3

Mountains are being lowered and valleys raised up! Stones and obstructions are being removed. A great clearing has begun both internally and externally.

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

Get ready!
