It’s Time To Ascend The Mountain!

By Kathi Pelton

“Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!” Exodus 20:20

The people of Israel had seen the smoke, the thunder and the display of the glory of God upon Mount Sinai from a distance and they became afraid. They were sure that if God spoke to them directly (face to face) that they would surely die. So, they sent Moses as a mediator to go before the Lord (for he understood the holiness and the grace of his God). Yet, their “fear” didn’t stop them from building a golden calf soon after and dancing around it; proclaiming it as the god that delivered them from Egypt.

Why am I sharing this verse and story? I sense that as we enter 2020 we will do so with a remnant of the church having come into a new “fear of the Lord” that purified us and delivered us from areas of defilement. In 2020 we will see many more come into this and it will bring a massive deliverance from sins and idolatries that have kept many separated from putting God first. I also believe that it will be an era where we no longer look to one man or a even a few “gifted men and women” to ascend the mountain of God and hear for us. God has invited His people to ascend the mountain of the Lord together so that we each hear directly from Him in face to face encounters.

Jesus is the mediator that opened the way for all to enter in by the grace provided by His death on the cross. The penalty for sin was paid and we can draw near and ascend the mountain of the Lord without fear of death but rather in the fear of the Lord.

The glory of the Lord is about to be displayed in ways that we have not seen before (only read about). Those that understand that Jesus is our mediator will not run from these glorious displays but rather run to them. It will become normal for God’s people to ascend the mountain and receive instructions, strategies and intimate encounters with Him.

The other day I was having a conversation about the account in Exodus 24 when Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain and dined with God. Here is that story,

“Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain. There they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there seemed to be a surface of brilliant blue lapis lazuli, as clear as the sky itself. And though these nobles of Israel gazed upon God, he did not destroy them. In fact, they ate a covenant meal, eating and drinking in his presence!”
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭24:9-11‬ ‭

I sense that God is blessing His people to come up in corporate mountain top experiences where we eat a “covenant meal” in His presence together. There He will reveal His glory and we will have our hunger filled and our thirst satisfied in glorious ways.

2020 will bring about displays of the tangible glory of the Lord that will create a renewed fear of the Lord that is both reverently holy and yet full of grace. Jesus is our mediator as we ascend the mountain where we will meet with Him face to face. He is longing to hide us in His glory in order to speak directly to His people.

The enemy cannot come into the glory where God will hide us as He speaks mysteries and strategies in the days ahead. His voice will be heard in corporate gatherings in ways that we have not seen before. His smoke will hide us as He meets face to face with His people. His glory will tabernacle us in these holy moments. The fear of the Lord will deliver many from sin in these times. Oneness, first with God and then with one another, according to Jesus prayer in John 17:20-23,

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”
‭‭

This glory that we will experience, where the mysteries of God are revealed, will usher us into a wisdom “beyond our years.” This wisdom of God will bring us into exponential growth and maturity beyond our ability and years.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10

God is inviting His people to ascend the mountain of God so that He can speak directly with us. Let’s not send a man or a mediator because the true Mediator has come and made a way to enter in through His blood.

It’s time to ascend!

The Shout That Releases A Heavenly Rescue Mission

By Kathi Pelton

We truly are in a time of battle against the enemies of God! Or maybe I should say that the enemy is in a battle with those who are lovers of God! But we know that “love wins!”

I woke up with a song lyric going through my mind. Often God will put a song in my spirit to speak to me about what He is doing. This time it was the line from the song, “You Have Won Me” (Brian & Jen Johnson/Bethel Music) that says,

“Shout it out and lift up one voice in worship, sing it out until all the earth can hear it, Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!”

There is a battle cry (or shout) to be released! Let’s shout it out as one voice until all the earth can hear it, “Jesus is alive and He saves…He rescues and saves!” The enemy hates truth, hates unity and oneness and hates the sound of salvation. Why? Because it is a frequency that shatters darkness and sets the captives free.

“The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name.” Psalms‬ ‭91:14‬ ‭

He will rescue and save you! He will rescue and save this generation! His salvation will come like a flood in response to our battle cry because it carries “salvations sound!”

I see in the days ahead stadiums full of desperate and passionate people shouting out, “Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!” Their sound will not be contained within the stadium walls but it will fill the atmosphere of cities and regions with the song of salvation that sets slaves free! It will release a rescue mission to a generation!

I see mom’s on their bedroom floor shouting out the same words over their prodigal children and in response Jesus releases a rescue mission to leave the ninety-nine to save the one.

I see nations shouting these words over the unborn and a mighty rescue mission to save the babies in the womb! The sound with bring triumph over death.

Shout it out!! It’s time! It’s the sound of salvation and the sound that signals a rescue mission to loose the captives and to shatter the darkness…even the darkness that has opposed you, oppressed you and tried to shut your mouth. It’s time to shout! Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves!

He Makes The Darkness Tremble

by Kathi Pelton

As many of you know, I asked for prayer yesterday (and wow, I got it!). I have an amazing prayer team that covers us, our ministry and our family so I don’t normally “go public!” Yesterday I did because I knew that the name of Jesus makes the darkness tremble and that my faithful friends and followers would speak His name and each time they would that light would dispel darkness.

I don’t know if what I’ve been dealing with recently is warfare, just being worn-down or witchcraft (or all three) but I do know that, whatever the case is, His name sheds light and changes the atmosphere! Just the mention of His name makes the darkness tremble! Through His grace I can handle difficult circumstances and physical challenges (not that I invite them!) but when I can’t find the One my heart longs for it becomes time to make the darkness tremble at the mention of His name!

There has been a increased level of warfare coming at God’s people. I don’t say that to glorify the enemy or to focus on the battle but as God’s people have been arising with such beauty, unity, power and surrender they are taking back ground that has been long held by the enemy. His “kingdom” is being shaken by the unshakable Kingdom of God! A great army is arising…dry bones are coming to life! This has created a great battle in the heavens and on the earth.

As we witness tragedies like the death of Toby Mac’s young son, the suicides of well-loved and known young pastors, and the intense warfare over our leaders and president, we must remember that we have a name that we can all upon who rescues and saves. When I’m at a complete loss I will often just sit and repeat His name over and over. His name washes over me like waves of mercy that remove the fog and confusion. Within His name is every answer needed to rescue and save us from even the greatest despair.

As I read about the loss of Toby Mac’s, and his wife Amanda’s, sudden loss of their precious son, all I could do was speak the name of Jesus as a prayer over them. Jesus knows what it is like to feel the weight of the deepest grief and our Heavenly Father has also watched His Son die. He is acquainted with with our sorrows and deepest grief.

“He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.” Isaiah 53:3

Jesus took all grief, sorrow, sin and hopelessness upon Himself on the cross and purchased victory. We are no longer hopeless, even in death! We are comforted by the victory of eternal life and a grace that carries us into His resurrection. Jesus not only made the darkness tremble but He defeated death and the grave! He is always the joy set before us; there is no circumstance in which we have been left to utter hopelessness. His life and light gives us an abiding place where hope is alive.

When you feel the darkness closing in around you, declare the name of Jesus and watch the darkness tremble. When death surrounds you, Jesus brings the hope of resurrection life! When sorrow overwhelms you, Jesus comforts you and lifts you up out of despair. When lack is all you see, Jesus blesses your “small offering” and feeds the multitudes; leaving you with much more than you began with (see Mark 8:8). Victory is sure, no matter the circumstance; for nothing can reverse what He has already done!

We do face sorrows and suffering but not without hope. We face battles but with victory assured, because the greatest battle is death and that has already been defeated!

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

The darkness cannot separate you from the love of God that is in our precious Savior! He makes the darkness tremble and He opens graves with resurrection life! Just the mention of His name brings light and life.

Thank you to all who mentioned His name over my life yesterday! You brought light and lifted me above the darkness. Let’s do that for those in need today. Let’s call out on the name of Jesus for those suffering and in deep grief

. We are an army of light and His name is written upon our hearts. We will arise and declare into the atmosphere and into nations the worth of Jesus. We will shout about the victory of our King.

Let’s join Him in making the darkness tremble today! Release so much light that even graves burst open with resurrection life! An army of light is rising up declaring the name of Jesus!

Tent or Tabernacle?

by Kathi Pelton

Over the past three days we hosted a 50-hour worship tent in Portland, Oregon for the Awaken the Dawn movement (#tentamerica). When we were asked about sharing testimonies that came forth from our tent I began to ponder what I wanted to share. Although we have testimonies of healings and people experiencing deep touches of God’s love and presence; the true testimony for me was the tent itself. It’s three days standing has become a picture that is forever etched upon my heart.

Our tent was donated by a local church that owned an inexpensive “summer tent.” Purchased for under $100, they were perfect for a warm day event but not for a three day heavy storm. It did have “flaps” that acted as walls, yet they were little more then thin plastic tarps with clear faux windows (and small Velcro strips to hold them in place). The instructions enclosed with the tent clearly stated that it was not meant to remain up overnight and should NOT BE USED in wind or rain.

The weather forecast for our three day (50-hour) event revealed large storms approaching. Our venue was at a high place in our city so the wind is known to be much worse in that location. But, “in faith” we raised our flimsy tent and prayed for God to keep it standing.

The night before we were to start our 50 hours of worship I had a pretty sleepless night as I heard the rain beginning to pour and the wind blowing outside. I thought about how I was about to put thousands of dollars worth of sound equipment and musical instruments (that I didn’t own) into a tent that specifically says, “Do not use in wind or rain.”

The next morning, as we arrived at our tent to set up the sound equipment, I found a completely drenched tent that had taken a hard beating the night before from the harsh weather. My main concern was the sound equipment and the safety of the people who would be coming to worship.

As our team unloaded the equipment we decided to put two heavy duty pop up canopies over our stage area to protect it in case the tent failed; so we had “tents within tents.” We knew that nothing would keep the rain from coming in from the ground so we made sure that all electrical supplies were above the ground so that we would not electrocute our musicians! Then we took zip ties and reinforced the thin walls. Lastly, we used waterproof tape to seal any openings where water was leaking through.

After getting all of the sound equipment, instruments, chairs, lighting, tables, and decorations (even rugs) set up we were ready to go! It looked amazing and so inviting. The excitement was building but so were the black clouds outside. People arrived and our first worship team was about to start up when “boom!”…five minutes before it began all the electricity short circuited leaving us in the dark. As everything turned dark a torrential downpour began that was accompanied by huge gusts of wind. Our faithful worship leaders pulled out an acoustic guitar and began to sing in the dark. Our small team rushed around in the dark and rain trying to figure out how to get our power back on. Some of us searched for circuit boxes, some held the poles to the tent to keep the winds from giving us a “Wizard of Oz” moment, some worked in the dark to seal more leaks. All the while I prayed my heart out for supernatural help! But the worship went on! After about forty minutes of this we suddenly had power again. Our faithful team was soaked to the bone but they went right back into worshipping the One who is worthy of our offering.

Worship was continually beautiful but through each set our tent was taking a beating that surely should have destroyed it within the first hour. The heavy rain poured upon it and the winds whipped it like a kite in the wind and yet it stood!

Due to the harsh weather and need for “all hands on deck” our little team spent the 50 hours onsite more than taking breaks to get much needed rest. We were compelled to protect the sound going forth! Prior to the event the Lord kept saying to me, “Protect the sound.” I didn’t fully realize what He had meant until all of these things began to happen. We would protect the sound through prayer and remaining present!

Hour after hour the most amazing sounds of worship intermingled with the sound of the abundance of rain came forth. And hour after hour this flimsy summer tent stood like a lighthouse in the storm.

It was as if the harder the hits came against this tent the more resilient and steady it became. This cheap tent became a priceless, supernatural sign and wonder to all who came in. As it endured the storms it gained “character” and to us was no longer a cheap, plastic tent but now a true tabernacle of praise. I thought of the words from Romans 5:4-6,

“…endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”

By the time we reached the half way mark, our tent had proven its ability to withstand the worst of storms and our confidence and hope grew! It was not going to disappoint us because the love of God was being poured out in it!

As I watched this tent, it became a picture of the Christian life. Storms come upon us that reveal the weak areas that need the strength and love of God. We endure storms that “should” take us down but as we remain in Him we are held up and our character is built. Then hope is produced and that hope does not fail or disappoint us! It is a hope given to us by the Spirit of God. The same Spirit that helps us to endure storms and grow in the hope of Christ was holding up our tent. In our weakness His strength is made manifest just like in the weakness of our physical tent His strength was being made manifest as we put our hope in Him.

What began as a cheap tent became a castle! It stood like His constant faithfulness that is sure and unshakable. So, yes…tents saw healings, experienced deep worship, made proclamation, experienced unity, saw orphans put in family and homeless sheltered…but what happened with our tent will forever impact me.

Our tent became a testimony of how He takes the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and how He takes our weaknesses and in that place causes His strength and faithfulness manifest for all to see!

So. now I am happy to boast in our weak tent because it revealed the strength of our God! He turns paupers into princes, orphans into sons and daughters and plastic tents into tabernacles of praise.

Angels Are Removing The Dark Clouds of Gloom and “Shadow Storms”

by Kathi Pelton

Early this morning I saw dark demonic clouds that has been sent over many of God’s people in order to distract, discouraged and dishearten them.

There is so much activity in the spirit realm right now over both individuals and over territories (nations/people groups). Great battles are being fought to take land and to occupy territories that have long been held by the enemy. God’s people have been arising like an army of light that will walk in unity, joy, peace and the fear of the Lord. This has the enemy scrambling for ways to cause them to “break rank”, dismantle unity and cast shadows to cause human fear because he knows that their fear of the Lord is one of their greatest weapons.

As I saw these dark clouds (much of which were shadows that appear larger than the actual size) over people I suddenly saw the angels of God coming to blow them away and expose them for what they were. Some were actual demonic clouds filled with dark assignments to send a storm over people who had become a threat to his rule. Others were nothing more than what I will call “shadow storms.” I saw it like when people use their hands to make shadow figures appear on a wall that look like monsters or wild animals. The enemy is actually using the brightness of the light that these people carry to cast a shadow that looks fiercer and larger than it actually is; or to give the appearance of being something that it actually is not. It’s a like “smoke and mirrors” to create fear and block the light.

The Lord is dealing with the actual demonic dark assignments that have been targeting true, significant threats to his camp and God is also exposing the shadow games that were sent to cause fear and to stop forward movement in those becoming a threat. His warring angels have been commissioned to disassemble the demons, expose the “trickery” and to blow away the darkness.

On another subject; I felt that the Lord wanted to remind some of you that there is a great sifting occurring at this time. This sifting will separate the “sheep and the goats.” It is difficult to watch this process, especially with people that you had great hope for. But do not be dismayed because many will return later when they come to a place of deep repentance after dwelling in darkness.

Wolves in sheep’s clothing are being exposed, false doctrines are being exposed, mixture is being exposed and impure motives are being exposed. Pray for a deep humility that allows true repentance to come to these people and places that have tolerated mixture and compromise.

Again, do not be overly dismayed by exposure of what was already there! Of course there is grief when we see these hidden things exposed but it is necessary. Just because you see it doesn’t mean that it didn’t exist already. Thank God for the exposure so that the opportunity for repentance can come. If they will not repent then it is better that no one else is influenced or led astray by their hidden agendas.

If you have been dealing with a dark cloud that has discouraged you, ask the Lord to send His angels to blow away the darkness and ask the Spirit of the Lord to comfort and encourage your soul back to the place of joy. The enemy is putting on quite the show and the joy of the Lord may be the answer that shakes off the heaviness. Also, remember that an uncompromising fear of the Lord is both a shield and powerful weapon against human and circumstantial fear.

It’s time to dance and praise Him in the darkness of night,

“Praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord who minister by night in the house of the Lord. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the Lord. May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalms‬ ‭134:1-3‬ ‭

Watchdogs or Watchmen?

by Kathi Pelton

Recently I had begun noticing people in the body of Christ that had taken on a posture that has the tendency to be “fiercely on guard” and somewhat “territorial” in nature. They are continually looking for an intruder or a breach to come into the atmosphere or room. I know that there are certain people that God has “wired” to guard and protect but I what I saw were people becoming more acquainted with the presence of darkness then the ability to release the light that dispels darkness.

A watchdog is always on guard! It is trained to ward off and attack any intruder that breaches the place or person that it has been stationed to guard. Again, this is not a negative thing but the Spirit of the Lord began speaking to me about the difference between a watchdog spirit and the spirit of a watchman.

A watchman sits in a high place to observe from the “above” advantage. They see the whole picture, the whole city and signal a corporate people regarding what needs to happen. A watchdog views what is in front of him, what doesn’t smell right and then goes after the threat one on one to defend its territory. Unfortunately, not seeing the whole picture has created victims with bite wounds that could have been avoided if the perspective was viewed from above.

Often this kind of “watchdog” mentality in the church has often missed the mark. It’s created suspicion, an attack mode, a defensive posture and a focus on intruders. Often it merely focuses on getting rid of the threat. But a watchmen is set above to see what God is doing! Though they will see the enemy but they will also see the Captain of the Lord of Hosts and His great army. The watchmen will see what both are doing and how they are to move and align God’s people to be in unity with the army of light. They are those who dispel darkness rather than wrestles darkness in a one on one territorial battle.

Recently a friend had a dream where she was in her house trying to sleep and her dog was near her front door. She looked and realized that the door was open and that there could be an intruder in the house. But her dog didn’t bark or rouse from his place of rest. She was confused at why he was sleeping while the door was ajar and the presence of something dark could be nearby. When she awoke she immediately remembered the story in Matthew 8:23-27 when Jesus slept on the boat during the storm that caused his disciples to believe that their lives were threatened. The Lord spoke to her and reminded her that we must learn to rest in the presence of darkness in the days ahead. Sometime rest is the weapon of warfare.

This dream reminded me of the time (many years ago) when the Lord asked me a very specific question. The question was,

“Kathi, what would you say that the main source of the warfare is in your life?”

I have since that time learned that often when God asks you a question, rarely is He looking for you to answer it but is merely getting your attention to listen for His answer. After hours of pondering and attempts at answers (which received no response), I finally realized that I was to answer the question with a question,

“Lord, what is the main source of the warfare in my life?”

He answered immediately by saying,

“Daughter, it is lack of peace. If you had My peace in every situation in your life you would not have warfare. There is no warfare where there is peace.”

From that day on I began a journey to see the peace of God established in my everyday life (this journey was the source of my book, 30 Days to Breakthrough: Stepping Into Peace). As the peace of God became a constant presence in my life, rest was added to my soul. I use to deal with insomnia due to stress, worry and fear but now I have been able to sleep in the storm.

This rest took me from the posture of being a watchdog to being a watchman that can see from above and know when I need to move and when I need to “sleep in the storm.” Yet, even when I move or need to “sound an alarm” it is not from a place of “fierce attack mode” but from intentional trust and alignment with what God is doing. It is from a place of releasing light rather than wrestling darkness.

One more example happened just this week. Our church has a weekly prayer team that walks the streets of Portland to “prayer walk” the city. We have a few very discerning people who faithfully walk with our team. They are the type who can see where the enemy is and what he is doing. This week we were preparing to do a worship night in downtown Portland when one of these “discerning the darkness” people went out to prayer walk where we’d be having our worship night. Within two minutes of leaving the building he returned. He walked straight up to me and said, “As soon as I left the building the Lord asked me what I was doing. I realized that I had gone to see what the enemy was up to but the Lord wanted me to see what He was doing and told me to go back to where the worship was happening and focus on His presence.” That night we had the most profound worship we’d ever had without any battle to break through darkness. As each one focused on Him and what He was doing it brought in light that pushed back the darkness. We became watchmen rather than watchdogs. We aligned with Heaven and became soldiers of light.

God is calling for His watchmen to arise. To move and live according to the light and movement of heaven. This movement may “at times” look like sleeping in a storm because sometimes the enemy is stirring up a storm to exhaust us, engage us in a unnecessary battle and to create fear. We need to discern the light so that we can release the light that breaks the power of darkness.

Now, please know that I am well versed in the scriptures regarding “watchmen” such as Isaiah 62:6

“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest…”

There are many scriptures that call us to be alert, awake and to “sound the alarm” but the shift is that we can do that from His peace and spiritual rest rather than from reaction and fear. We can warn a brother, call a city to alert or sound an alarm from a place that does not create chaos but rather brings the army of God into divine order and alignment with the strategies of Heaven. His watchmen bring a oneness and unification of the angel armies and God’s army on earth. It discerns what the Father is doing and aligns us with the movement of heaven rather than the reactions of earth.

God is balancing and aligning His sons and daughters to respond to the wisdom from above so that the activities of earth do not have us in reactive chaos. This is the offensive posture that ushers in victory so that we are not beating at the wind and waves. Peace be still is our sound!

The Narrow Gate That Leads To Broad Breakthrough

by Kathi Pelton

This may be the most important revelation I personally have ever received; it is deep and yet simple, profound and yet understandable, impossible and yet so obtainable.

It began this past week while I was part of an intervention for someone who had fallen into deep occult practices, all the while believing, and insisting, that their activities were “all God.” While I met with this person they told me that they had found the “broad way” that was so beautiful and inclusive of many dimensions and spiritual experiences. As these words came into my ears, immediately my spirit rose up and I said,

“No my friend, the way to God is through the narrow gate and few find it! It will lead you into the greatest beauty that you will ever experience and that beauty will be unlimited and wide, but never forget that the gate and path is narrow.”

As the words sprang from my lips it became like a weighty conviction upon me that has not lifted.

Then, this past weekend our church had our monthly, “Encounter Sunday” where we give the whole Sunday to spontaneous corporate words and worship. From nearly the moment we began the service, the weight of glory filled the room in a way that took me to my knees. Deep intercession filled my spirit, and I was acutely aware that the Spirit of the Lord, along with a great angelic presence, was in the room.

As we corporately released the sound of worship and cries of intercession, and allowed the prophetic voices to speak, an individual came forward and began talking about “the narrow way.” Had I not already been kneeling, I might have fallen down because the reality of the narrow way had been resting upon me for days.

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” Matthew 7:13-14

As our church family continued to press into the word about the narrow way, I was taken into a profound encounter.

Psalm 91 and The Narrow Way

In this encounter I was taken into a deep and narrow ravine, but within this place was a beam of intense light, rather than the darkness one would expect in such a location. Outside the ravine was a great, open expanse completely shrouded in darkness—in great contrast to the brilliance I was experiencing. I realized that I was in the “cleft of the rock” spoken of in Exodus 33:22. Then the Spirit of the Lord said to me,

“Daughter, the narrow path is the place of your Psalm 91 promise. It is also the place where you will see my glory and still live. The enemy cannot enter this ravine—the cleft—as the light is too bright. I AM the narrow gate to enter this place. You are hidden in this place and as you abide here I will reveal mysteries, strategies, and my glory.”

Then I saw eagles, birthed and trained in this narrow place, that would receive great light, understand mysteries, and receive strategic assignments to fly from the ravine into the darkness of the broad way, commissioned to bring the light they carried that dispels darkness. In doing this they were protected, because they were hidden by the light.

Hidden by light! This was a foreign concept to me, as I know that usually things are hidden in a dark, unseen place. But in this encounter, the brightness of the light was the hiding place, and the eagles that soared into the darkness were hidden by this great light that blinded the enemy.

The narrow place is not always an easy place, which is why “few find it”; it is for the remnant that will daily die to self so that Christ may live in them. It is the place of uncompromising covenant, which can only be kept by dependency on grace, rest, and trust in the “One who is able to keep us from falling.”

Could the narrow path also be the “refuge and shelter” that we read of in Psalm 91?

If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!” Psalms‬ ‭91:9-13‬ ‭

Could the narrow path also be the cleft of the rock that Moses was hidden in?

“When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.” Exodus 33:22

Could the narrow path also be the “courtyard” where mysteries are revealed?

“While Jeremiah was still confined in the courtyard of the guard, the Lord gave him this second message: “This is what the Lord says—the Lord who made the earth, who formed and established it, whose name is the Lord: Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33:1-3‬

Could it be that the narrow path is like a greenhouse for spiritual fruit?

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.” John15:4

This narrow path is where we encounter our plumb line, our alignment with the oneness of God (John 17:21-23). It is the place we are to live in and move from. It is our refuge because it is Him!

Jesus lived His life on earth on the narrow path and within the refuge of His Father’s love, light, and movements. We must allow our lives to be aligned the same way, live as Jesus lived, and walk the path that He walked. Here is a perfect “alignment verse” found in 1 John 2:3,4,5,6,

“And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.”

Jesus is the narrow gate, that leads to the narrow path, that ushers us into the great and wide promises of abundant life!

Canada, Singapore and More

Pelton Ministry Tour

Today we are headed home from British Columbia, Canada as we complete the last leg of our North America tour.

After two months, two countries, twelve states/provinces in both the east and west; our hearts are full and our bodies tired. We saw God move all along the way. From national gatherings to one on one encounters where God left the ninety-nine to find the one; in it all His love overwhelmed us and the beauty of His family caused us to feel at home no matter where we laid our heads.

We just completed a week in British Columbia where there was such a lovely exchange of ministry to and from us and the family of God there. We gave but we also received so much.

So what is next? We will hit the ground at home running with Tent America 2019 quickly approaching. We will be hosting 50 hours of worship under a tent during the Feast of Tabernacles in Portland, Oregon. We will also have a Pre-Rally on September 21st where we will share the vision and host five hours of worship. If you are interested in hosting a tent in your city as thousands join together to cover our nation with a love song to Jesus, go to: www.awakenthedawn.org

We are making plans to go back to Canada in October for a regional gathering in Prince George, BC…and then…WE ARE GOING TO SINGAPORE!

We were recently invited to be a part of a gathering of global leaders that represent different nations and generations to pray together and discern what God is doing in 2020 throughout the world. We feel that the Lord is asking us to be a part of this time in mid-November.

Thank you to all of our faithful friends and supporters who prayed for us and sowed into our trip with financial support. The Bible says that the reward is the same to the one who goes and the one who stays. Your prayers and support made you a part of our journey and the fruit that came from it.

Now we are beginning a “Send Us To Singapore” fundraiser. This trip will cost over $4000. We will make the fundraising goal $4444 and call it the 4444 Campaign.

Forget Not! The Sound of Breakthrough

By Kathi Pelton

“We will never forget!”

These are words most often associated with great tragedies such as the Holocaust or 9/11…and they rightly should be. But today, the day after we remembered the tragedy of September 11,2001, I woke up with the Spirit of the Lord speaking two words to me over and over,

FORGET NOT!

He then said, “Kathi, My people are quick to remember trauma and tragedy but slow to remember all of My benefits and the great miracles that I have done!”

Then He began to recount to me the testimonies of old from the Bible and the personal testimonies that He has marked my life with. Because I am a “glass half full” type of person (always the optimist!) this recounting of His goodness is like honey to my soul.

We must always remember the losses and times in history that have been marked my great adversity and great sacrifice, but we need to be quick to “forget not His benefits!”

“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm‬ ‭103:2-5‬ ‭

In this hour I feel a great prophetic weight upon the testimonies of Jesus! As you remember (or forget not) the miracles, deliverances, protections, provisions, healings, leadings, breakthroughs and goodness of God they will prophesy to your days ahead.

“Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God.” For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation‬ ‭19:10‬ ‭

We must hold to the testimony of Jesus that we read about in the Bible and have experienced in our own life’s journey. They prophesy the sound of breakthrough! The very sound of these remembrances change the atmosphere and open up new testimonies of His faithfulness over your life.

There is a very popular worship song that is being sung all over the world at this time that is called, “Do It Again” The first time I heard it the Lord spoke to me and said that this song was prophesying a great move of God where we would see the miracles of old happen again.

Some of the words to this song are as follows;

I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

You made a way, where there was no way

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again.

What He has done before is prophesying what He will do again! Write them down, recount them and share the testimonies of Jesus ; He will “do it again!” I believe that September (especially Rosh Hashanah) will mark a time of entering an age of great miracle, signs and wonders. As we then move into the “Days of Awe” I feel that we will enter ten years of awe. They will be marked by His faithfulness and mercies toward the people that He loves.

As I was walking through Washington, D.C. a couple of weeks ago and showing my youngest son all the memorials of wars (The Civil War, The World Wars, Viet Nam, The Holocaust Memorial Museum), I felt as though the Lord said, “I am about to erect memorials of My faithfulness!” They will bring a new chapter in history that declares who He is!

It’s time to set up memorials that recount His goodness and mercy. Let’s be quick to remember the testimonies of His faithfulness and teach them to our children and our children’s children. Of course we will never forget our history and the great sacrifices made but we must be quick to remember and recount His benefits and faithfulness.

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” Lamentations‬ ‭3:21-25‬ ‭

CALIFORNIA! A Fire Will Come Forth From You That Will Change The Nation

By Kathi Pelton

This week I have been in our home state of California. I began in our hometown of Santa Rosa where the devastating 2017 #TubbsFire destroyed 6000 homes and buildings and took many lives. I finished our trip in Redding, California where the 2018 #CarrFire had a similar devastating effect. While there we were with friends from the Chico/Paradise area where this past year saw the entire city of Paradise destroyed by the #CampFire.

We all were worshipping together last night (people from all three regions and beyond). A prophetic song began to come forth about the love of God and as it did I was taken into a visionary encounter:

The Vision

I saw the three California fires (Tubbs, Camp and Paradise) and that devastated Northern California. Then three phrases began to be heralded over the land,

“How deep is the love of God.”

“How wide is the love if God.”

“How high is the love of God.”

As each phrase (or declaration) was released over the land a wildfire of the love of God came upon California. This was a fire that people were running into rather than away from. It restored rather than devastated. It brought life instead of death.

There is a saying in America that says, “As California goes, so goes the nation.” Though this has been a negative truth for those who desire righteousness in our nation, it will suddenly be redeemed and embraced as California releases the fire of the depths, width and heights of the love of God in the days ahead.

I saw the Lion of Judah and His mane was flames of fire. Then He released a roar of His immense love over the state. He roared three times and each roar fit with the above vision and fire came forth from His mouth; the fire of His love!

“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:14-19

Get ready to see the Golden State afire with the love of God that will ignite the nation with a “love revival!”
