A Time To Open Up!!!

By Kathi Pelton

Across the globe there is a new beginning taking place. It’s the beginning of things that have been closed beginning to open up.

During this time where the exterior things have been closed there has been a great opening happening in those that have responded to Jesus knocking on the door of their hearts. He longed to come in and dwell so that our hearts would be awakened to the oneness that would change everything. Oneness with Christ and with one another as He prayed for before going to the cross.

As we have spent these past months dwelling in His presence, lingering in the grip of His love and being resurrected from a slumber that was was threatening to dull our senses— it has prepared us like a bride on her wedding day. Today as I walked through some natural doors that have been locked I was reminded of the gates that need to be opened.

“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.” Psalms‬ ‭24:7‬

As we walk through the earthly doors let’s intentionally bring the King of glory in with us! It is time to declare that the gates of hearts, the gates of cities and the gates of nations be open to welcome the King of glory.

He began with knocking on our hearts while the world’s doors were closed— and a huge remnant of His people responded and said, “Come in!” He came in and transformed us individually and corporately. He cleaned our hearts and hands and restored us to the foundational truths of the finished work of the cross and to first love.

Now He is knocking on the doors of cities and nations— will we “swing wide the gates and welcome Him in?”

The oneness that has been established has not only ‭restored us but it has established us to carry the authority of our King to rule and reign with Him. It’s time to close the doors to the enemy and his demonic agenda to kill, steal and destroy those that were created in God’s image. It’s time to speak to the gates on earth to open up and let Him come in to do what He has done in our hearts in our neighborhoods, cities and nations.

The things that the world saw as sure and secure have been shaken and proven as a false securities. They are looking and longing for something sure and something secure. Many are so disturbed in their souls and they are looking for peace and hope but they don’t know where to find it. Now is the time for us to carry Christ, through the power of oneness, into the city gates and reveal the God who is never shaken and is always a refuge in times of need.

John 17: 22-23 says,
“And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”

There is suddenly an unveiling of His bride that has been transformed and drawn into oneness so that “the world will know.”

When they know and they yield— then they will experience peace, joy and a love that helps them through every moment for the rest of their lives. They will worship Him alone and leave behind every other god. He’s coming to reveal Himself as both the King of Kings and as the Good Shepherd. The one who brings justice and grace, judgments and mercy, severity and gentleness.

As the world opens up let us go through the gates with a shout of “welcome” to the King of glory. Let us open the unseen gates that bring heaven to earth and ask the King to bend down and gather His scattered sheep. May His justice rule and His kindness restore.

We welcome you King of glory!

May Is A Time To Blossom! June Is A Time of Revealing!

By Kathi Pelton

The word “blossom” has been one of my quarantine words. Why? Well, as we all began to cover our faces and separate from one another I began to see a picture emerging of a flower bud—closed and hidden—then, as the earth slept it opened up in all of it’s beauty and brilliance for all to see— to be unmasked.

I believe that we are in the end of a long night where we went to sleep only seeing signs of Spring and signs of the budding of flowers but as the dawn is beginning to awaken on this quarantine and we are able to come face to face with one another once again…we will see that the bride has blossomed!

Even as I have connected online with His people around the world, I have seen an awakening and transformation— a blossoming! It is like a beautiful garden has been unlocked and revealed in all of its splendor and beauty. The flowers have appeared and the fragrance is like the perfume that filled the room when poured over the feet of Jesus.

I love to watch the Spring bulbs as they come up out of the ground and the buds appear. I am filled with anticipation for the unveiling of the beauty hidden within. Then, each year I will go to bed one night with only buds and the next morning wake up to see that they have blossomed! It is like a prince came and kissed each one during the night and they opened their eyes and arose to display their beauty and to release their fragrance.

This is what is happening with the bride! Before this global shut down we were a bud just waiting to be kissed by the Son and awakened. But suddenly the night is coming to a close and we have received our kiss and are in full bloom. We are in the newness of morning.

The bride is like the Shulamite in the Song of Songs that has now responded to her Beloved and is ready to run with Him. This time has nurtured the beauty of oneness with Christ which creates oneness with each other. John 17:23 says that this oneness will reveal to the world who Jesus truly is,

“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.”
‭‭

Perfect unity is oneness— this is seen in the earthly covenant of marriage as the two become one flesh. It is like the intermingling of two fragrances becoming one— two blossoms becoming one.

Get ready to be intoxicated by the fragrance of the Bride and her Bridegroom. The beauty of oneness has blossomed but it will not only last for a short season but this garden is an eternal one with no end.

Can you see the dawn awakening? Can you smell the fragrance of what has blossomed? Can you feel the anticipation of the Father to reveal the bride as she has been prepared?

May is the month of blossoming and June is the month of revealing— get ready for a Holy intoxication of beauty!

Words To Live By

By Kathi Pelton

I love words! Being a writer means that paper is my canvas and words are my paint. Finding the right word to describe something seen in the spirit or in the natural is vital to helping the reader to understand and have vision.

Our ministry is called, “Inscribe Ministries” based off of the verse from Habakkuk 2:2 that says,

“Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.”

To write a vision requires the right words which bring about understanding to the reader or listener of “how to run!“ It’s so powerful.

Jesus is called the 𝐿𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑊𝑜𝑟𝑑 because He encompasses everything found within the Word. All creation came forth from the words He spoke. There is power in words; to bless or to curse, to speak life or speak death, to empower or disempower and to build up or to tear down, to create or to destroy.

Our words matter! We must ask the Lord to train our mouths to speak words that bless, give life and empower those around us to run. Your words are usually a good way to x-ray your heart,

“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.“ Luke 6:45

This is why we must follow the wisdom found in Philippians 4:8,

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

As we think on these things they renew our hearts and minds causing what comes forth from our mouths to profit those who hear our words. When I was a new believer my heart and mind still needed to be renewed by the Word therefore critical, negative, fretful and judgmental words would leak out; always exposing what needed to be cleaned out of my heart. God was not condemning me, but if I were honest, my words were a clear sign of where my heart needed to be cleaned and renewed.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

When my husband and I were directing a house of prayer for Patricia King she would lead prayer sessions with us where we would “decree the Word of God.“ These times trained our team and all who attended how much power comes forth as we decreed His written Word! I quickly saw the fruitful harvest that would come when I spoke aloud His Word over my life and my family’s lives. Decreeing His Word is like allowing your heart to be strained through the Spirit of Truth; filtering out all the dross.

I remember asking the Lord to put a coal of fire near my lips so that I would not speak anything unholy.

“So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”” Isaiah‬ ‭6:5-7‬ ‭

These verses come right before the verse that says, “Here am I, send me.” This is so important before being “sent.” We must be sent with words of life, hope, truth that prosper and edify the hearer. We must go forth with hearts that have been made clean.

As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding this global quarantine, I believe that the eyes of the Lord are searching the earth for the ones He might send. But let us first pray the scriptures written above. We need pure hearts, clean hands, words that have been freed from the grip of iniquity and thoughts that profitable to the hearer! We need words that release vision and cause the sent ones to run with purpose.

Today, listen to your words so that you can do a ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑡 𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑐𝑘. Then, if you find that your words are revealing areas that need to be renewed and cleansed; don’t enter into guilt or condemnation because God loves it when we receice His lovingkindness that brings discipline. He is so happy that you desire a clean heart and He has provided you 𝑊𝑂𝑅𝐷𝑆 𝑇𝑂 𝐿𝐼𝑉𝐸 𝐵𝑌.

It’s time to prepare to be sent ones! We must carry words of life that bear fruit wherever they are sown.

By Kathi Pelton

“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
Psalm 126:5-6

As I meditated on these two verses the Lord highlighted the portion that says, 𝑇ℎ𝑜𝑠𝑒 𝑤ℎ𝑜 𝑔𝑜 𝑜𝑢𝑡 𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑝𝑖𝑛𝑔, 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑟𝑦𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑠𝑒𝑒𝑑𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑠𝑜𝑤. I suddenly was overcome by the pleasure of the Lord for His sons and daughters as they chose to sow seeds in the midst of their tears. I could feel how proud He is of His children who are pushing past their personal pain to sow seeds of worship, obedience, truth, finances, encouragement and honor.

Though many of these precious ones have slept upon pillows soaked with their own tears, they still make a choice to face the morning by sowing seeds that bring honor and pleasure to the heart of God. They know that He alone is worthy of all honor; even in the midst of their personal pain.

The enemy may work hard to cause shame and pain but God has a promise for you,

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7

What appears now to be losses will soon prove to be your season of multiplication. Many prophetic voices are hearing the words, “Double for your troubles” and I believe this to be true. Negatives will soon be positives and not only positives but multiplications.

Hold onto hope! Though hope may feel like a “long shot” in the midst of the current circumstances and pain…still- hold onto hope and keep sowing seeds in the time of weeping.

“Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.” Zechariah‬ ‭9:12‬

I believe that many will experience their double portion breakthrough in the month of May. I specifically sense that this month is an open door that enters the body of Christ into a time of many breakthroughs. The summer months will be marked by miracles and remembered as the summer of miracles and summer of redemption! Multiplication will mark your life!

Though tears of pain have fallen, they have watered seeds of joy that will suddenly spring forth like wildflowers that are even now covering the fields. You will stand in awe as you witness the grace, kindness and goodness of God. Your tears have fallen and watered the seeds you have sown in faith and hooe. Songs of deliverance will soon be sung and the atmosphere will be filled with the sounds of joy.

Grace and Help in the Month of May

By Kathi Pelton

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭

The Lord spoke to me that today begins a month of extravagant and extraordinary grace; 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒 𝑢𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑔𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑒! He is inviting His people to 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙡𝙙𝙡𝙮 to His throne of grace where you will receice mercy, grace and help for 𝗔𝗟𝗟 that you need.

Need often causes us to become aware of our weakness and dependency upon God. Therefore, this time of need has created an invitation to “come boldly before His throne of grace.“ His throne is where our help comes from. Most are standing in unemployment lines, lines to enter grocery stores and welfare lines but there is a place that there is no line, no wait and no need to prove or explain your need- it is a place of help, grace and compassion. There is no fear or shame in this place; only help and joy.

“And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ ‭

In May we will see a great manifestation of the strength (power) of God being made perfect (manifest) in the midst of need (weakness). The power of God will rest upon you in ways that strengthen you, uphold you and help you.

This is not a time to come under a spirit of despair because of your need or your weakness but it is time to be clothed in bold confidence and approach the throne where our Savior is seated and distributes grace without measure- He just says, “𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙚.“

Get ready to be a walking testimony of His power and grace coming uoon you! Many will ask you how you are thriving in this time and you will take them by the hand and lead them to the throne of grace to receive help.

We will have the spirit of prophesy resting upon us as the testimony of His faithfulness is made known to those around us.

“I will make known the Lord’s faithful love and the Lord’s praiseworthy acts, because of all the Lord has done for us — even the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, which he did for them based on his compassion and the abundance of his faithful love.” Isaiah‬ ‭63:7‬ ‭

May you approach Him with bold confidence as we enter the month of May!

Surely Goodness Will Follow You!

By Kathi Pelton

Last week I was listening to a pastor and very successful businessman who was talking about the key to his success. He said it is believing the “surelys” in the Bible! First he brought us to Hebrews 6:14 that says,

“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Then he brought us to the most known Psalm— Psalm 23, verse 6 where it says,

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalms‬ ‭23:6‬ ‭

He said that every morning he begins His day by praying and decreeing the “surely” truths over his life. I am calling it “The Surely Effect”!

As he prayed these verses over his life he said that he saw the cartoon character from the Charlie Brown strip named, Pigpen. Pigpen had a cloud of dirt that followed him wherever he went— it went before him, behind him and beside him. The Lord showed him that the “surely” promises of blessings, multiplication, mercy and loving kindness would encircle his life in the same way that the dust cloud encircled Pigpen’s life.

Once again…it is what I’m calling the “Surely Effect.” Isn’t it time to walk in His promises? To agree with, align with and decree them as a promised truth over everything you do and everything you touch?

Surely means assurance and confidence which is the same meaning as HOPE in regards to our faith. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for! It is confident expectation and assurance that what God says it true. He cannot lie!

It’s time to align with the “Surely Effect”! This will renew your faith and become a truth that surrounds you like a cloud of favor and promise.

Yesterday I did a Facebook live that talked about shaking off disappointment and going back to the trust that says, “He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 11:11). Far too often believers align with a false “surely” that tells a lie about our God. It says that surely you will be disappointed, surely you will lack, surely you will fail…and so on! But that is a lie that needs to be trampled like a snake under our feet. The truth is that for every believer, “Surely goodness and loving kindness, blessings and multiplication…and no lack” will follow you.

Today— receive the Surely Effect into your life!

THIS IS OUR 20/20 CLEAR VISION MOMENT!

By Kathi Pelton

As I have been spending time with the Lord this morning I was shown a vision of this “quarantine time” but in it I was in an optometrist office receiving an eye exam and being fitted for lenses that would bring my vision back to 20/20.

Many prophetic voices prophesied words about 20/20 vision coming in 2020. I recently came across a post from a man who was mocking those words and saying that this pandemic has proven the prophetic voices wrong. Well, I don’t know about you but for me personally this has been a time of seeing the state of my body, soul and spirit with greater clarity then ever before! The Spirit has been searching my life and my heart and giving me 20/20 vision to see what was formerly blurred by all the busyness and clutter in my soul.

I have never seen the finished work of the cross as clearly as I do right now. The power of His blood is bringing forth a personal reformation that is washing away everything that has usurped the true source of life and liberty. Much of what I saw were “good things” but not what I needed— for they were blocking my view of Him. It was like looking upon the wardrobe of someone you love but not truly seeing the person or the owner of the garments. My life was like a closet, stuffed full of His garments and yet little room for Him!

For me, it’s been like a fog has lifted (a veil has torn) and I can see again. Now I can partner with Him and yield to the work of His Spirit within me to bring me into greater “oneness with Christ.” Isn’t that the last thing that Jesus prayed before going to the cross?

“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.” John‬ ‭17:21‬ ‭

How can we be one with one another if we are not first and foremost “one with God?” How will the world know if we are not—“in Him?” The verse above says, “…And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”

We have read these words thousands of times; prayed them, preached them and prophesied them! But until this time I do not know if we could “see” the way into oneness because we have been so divided in our own hearts and lives by the “things of Him” rather than Him alone. This “Selah” has stopped the speed of life that was blurring the very things we claim to hold dear.

If you are driving in a speeding vehicle everything that you pass by is blurred due to the speed you are moving at. But if you stop the vehicle and get out you can view your surroundings with clear focus and finally see the little details you missed at high speed. Often those details will include “the little foxes that spoil the vineyard.”

“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” Song of Songs‬ ‭2:15‬

We are in a spiritual “early Spring.” The grapevines of our love are blossoming and this pause or Selah has stopped us so that we see clearly and can “catch the little foxes” that seek to ruin the vineyard. If you run after a fox it will run away and most likely outrun you; but if you stop and are very still you can trap that fox and remove it from the vineyard of your life.

It is also very difficult to nurture love on the run! You must stop and get face to face and heart to heart with the one you love. The seeds of love grow underground in the hidden place where “soil and seed” are joined. It takes stillness, time, patience and watering to yield the fruit within. The same is true with our relationship with God and with people. I love the convergences of ministries but I long for the oneness of hearts even more. But first I must nurture my love with Christ.

I believe that the “20/20 vision in 2020” prophetic words may be the most accurate words ever prophesied into a new year. Did we expect it to come in this way— NO! But isn’t that usually the case with the prophetic? We hear what He plans to do but we rarely know how He will do it. His ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughts! And honestly, if we knew beforehand the details of “how” we’d probably try to orchestrate and control it and mess it up. What a wise Father we have!

One of the words the Lord spoke to me regarding 2020 was the word, “Jubilee.” A Jubilee Year is a time when all debts are forgiven. In the midst of what appears to be an unprecedented global economic crisis this word, “Jubilee” surely seems to be a major miss! Or is it?

For me personally, I feel like my soul is receiving an emotional and spiritual jubilee! The deeper revelation of the finished work of the cross that paid every debt is bringing me into a jubilee season like never before. I knew this truth before but it is becoming a deeper experiential reality that is not only catching the little foxes but it is causing me to become “one with Him.” I pray that this Jubilee will touch our economy as well but I am so overjoyed that it is first touching my soul and your soul.

So. YES— 2020 is a year of 20/20 vision. You must get still and allow our Great Optometrist, Jesus Christ, to examine you and give you new lenses. It’s time to see!

Pray For President Trump! A Dream and a Warning

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was sent an email that shared a dream that someone had which had me in it. She did not know what it meant but felt that she was to share it with me. As I read it I received insight regarding what the Lord was saying through this dream. I believe it clearly points to a demonic plot against our president that can be likened to Absalom’s plot to kill King David (and all those with him) in 2 Samuel 17.

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

The dream begins on the outskirts of an alligator infested swamp where I am with the person who had the dream and other intercessors. We see the oldest, largest and most hidden alligator that lives in this swamp and grass was growing on the back of this great beast. The grass was there to camouflage and hide him from being seen. People were walking upon this grass completely unaware of what was right under their feet.

I believe that the swamp represents the United States of America. Our president is known for saying, “Drain the swamp!” But, the enemy knows that if we drain the swamp we will expose this Leviathan.

After the “swamp scene” the dream changes. In the next part of the dream I am instructing the intercessors to go to Colorado Springs. We go there and I go into a room with a bed in it and lay face down on it in order to receive a “word from the Lord.” Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord falls on me causing me to shake so severely that I fall off of the bed and onto the floor; shaking under His power. As I read this part I felt that it could represent the importance of the word that I will receive; which could be the interpretation to this dream.

I find it interesting that I send this group to Colorado Springs since this is where Lou Engel is now living and leading our nation into prayer and fasting from his home there. I also found out that Vice President Pence arrived in Colorado Springs the same day I received the dream (April 18th) which I believe speaks to the NOW timing upon this dream. Our Vice President is the head of the Coronavirus task force therefore God may be asking for prayer for him and his leadership in this role.

The last part of this dream is that the person (who had this dream) was with me in the room when the Spirit fell on me. She was holding her “revelation journals” and all she remembers is that she wanted giving me a scripture out of 2 Samuel. That concluded the dream.

The person who had this dream could not remember the chapter or verse reference from 2 Samuel. Yet when I read the dream I felt led to ask her the date that she had the dream and she told me the early morning hours of the 17th. I felt the Spirit say, “Go to 2 Samuel 17 and you will know what is happening.” So, I first went to the early verses in 2 Samuel 17. That is when I read these words that captured my attention,

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

Please read thorough 2 Samuel 17 regarding the plans of Absalom to take King David’s life. I feel convinced that the enemy has a plot to destroy our president and cause those standing him to run from him in terror (leaving him exposed).

Let’s pray that our president will listen to the voices of the prophets in his life and follow their instructions. A spirit of rebellion is plotting against him in a time where he is weary and exhausted. It’s an Absalom spirit that wants to take the place of “king” and rally the people under his leadership. Through the words of the prophet a strategy is made to save the King David. Because of this strategy King David and those with him are rerouted and saved causing Absalom’s plans to thwarted. He then hangs himself.

There is a victory if we pray and bring wisdom and warning to our president. Let us get on our faces and pray!

This Is The Reformation That Takes You From Works to ACTS! It’s Time For A Personal Pentecost

By Kathi Pelton

When the coronavirus first began to be revealed, prior to the quarantine orders, the Lord was whispering the words from the first verses of Song of Solomon 3 into my spirit. I want to share these verses with you from The Amplified Bible,

““On my bed night after night [I dreamed that] I sought the one Whom my soul loves; I sought him but did not find him. I said ‘So I must arise now and go out into the city; Into the streets and into the squares [places I do not know] I must seek him whom my soul loves.’ I sought him but I did not find him. The watchmen who go around the city found me, And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’ Scarcely had I passed them When I found him whom my soul loves. I held on to him and would not let him go Until I had brought him to my mother’s house, And into the chamber of her who conceived me.””
‭‭Song of Solomon‬ ‭3:1-4‬ ‭AMP‬‬

The words, “When I found him whom my soul loves…I held on to him and would not let him go.” echoed in my heart like a voice calling into an deep canyon of desire. I was longing to return to the deep place where He alone is my every “desire fulfilled.” I deeply longed to throw off everything that hindered that pursuit because I knew that it would take me back to first love; which must be the source and foundation for for all that I do.

Just as in our earthly marriages; we can get to points and times where we are merely “going through the motions.” It’s not that we do not still love our spouses, but due to busyness (parenting, careers, responsibilities) we forget the passions and longings that we shared when our love was new. If we remain in that place without rekindling or reawakening love, it will eventually grow cold. Our “I love you” will become just words that end a phone call or salutation rather than an ongoing experience that takes us to new depths of oneness with each other.

This is true with our walk with the Lord as well. In January and February, as these words were stirring in my soul, a hunger was growing inside of me to throw off every hinderance and run fully after Him to awaken first love once again. I wasn’t satisfied with merely going through the motions or saying the right words apart from a place of passionate pursuit. I didn’t want all that I did to merely become “works.”

Then came March when a sudden HALT came to the entire earth. It was like the Commander of the Host of Heaven’s army arrived on the chaotic scene of busyness and commanded everything to “BE STILL!” Since that point many have been living out a sudden self-awareness of their spiritual state. This abrupt “stop” has allowed for us to come into much needed awareness of the condition of our relationships; with God, our spouses, our families and with one another.

For me personally, it took a couple of weeks for my mind and my soul to begin to slow and truly “be still.” Though outside activities had stopped, my mind and long-standing habits of busyness still vied for first place and for my affections. But the ongoing voice of my Beloved patiently persisted in His pursuit for me to “find Him and not let Him go!”

As I began to allow the reset and adjustments of my soul to take place I could feel an awakening beginning to take place. Then— a dear friend, David Bradshaw (who is also my pastor), began doing a daily broadcast that is walking viewers verse-by-verse through the book, Song of Solomon. As I was watching one of these broadcasts I felt the Spirit say to me, “Your works are about to become ACTS as you allow first love to be awakened. This will be your personal Pentecost as you wait in the upper room.”

My heart immediately knew what He was saying! When He said that my works would become ACTS I knew that there was a clear distinction. It was like moving from “going through the motions” to what the disciples experienced in the Book of Acts. As they waited in the upper room the were like the Shulamite who left the comforts of her room and were running through the streets looking for the one her soul loved. Though they were still and locked in (waiting), just as we are today, their souls were searching and desperately waiting to be filled with the promise that would awaken them. And sure enough their Day of Pentecost came,

“On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.” Acts‬ ‭2:1-4‬

In this place, this upper room, there were Jews (and gentile converts) from every nation together. As the “tongues of fire” settled on each one they began to speak in the native language of those from other nations that were present and they declared (in languages that were not their own) the ‭awesome and wonderful works of God.

God’s “wonderful works” are NEVER void or separated from the absolute passionate adoration and oneness that is shared by our Triune God. The Son is always revealing His Father, the Father is always revealing His Son and the Holy Spirit is revealing the Father and the Son in the fullness of oneness and agape love. As the “works of God” were being revealed and declared through the tongues of fire; they became prophecy for the very ACTS that they would do from that day onward. Peter spoke these words,

“‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ says God, ‘THAT I WILL POUR OUT MY S PIRIT UPON ALL MANKIND; AND YOUR SONS AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE [divinely prompted] VISIONS, AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM [divinely prompted] DREAMS; EVEN ON MY BOND-SERVANTS, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR OUT M Y SPIRIT And they shall prophesy. AND I WILL BRING ABOUT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS (attesting miracles) ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD AND FIRE AND SMOKING VAPOR. THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD COMES. AND IT SHALL BE THAT EVERYONE WHO CALLS UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD [invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord Jesus] SHALL BE SAVED (rescued spiritually).’” Acts‬ ‭2:17-21‬ ‭

When love grows cold, ACTS turn into “the works of men” rather than the “wonderful works of God.” But when the bride is awakened to the true revelation of the one her soul loves, then mortal works (even good works) become “acts of God!” Miracles, signs and wonders will follow them because they have become one with Him (even as they are one— John 17:20-23).

What happened after that is that those who were filled on the Day of Pentecost began preaching with power that caused those who heard their message to truly repent and turn to God!

As we wait in our “upper rooms” during this time and search for the One our souls love, we will experience a personal Pentecost that will fill us with power from on high as it aligns us in “oneness with Christ”; revealing the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to those who have never repented and turned to Him. When we are one the world will “know and believe!”

The message that we will carry from this time (this upper room waiting time) will be understood by those who have never heard this “language” before. We will speak, by the unction of His Spirit, in a language that the world can understand— causing them to repent and turn to God. This will bring in the greatest harvest ever seen!

But first we must respond. We must stop and allow for the time of waiting in the upper room to take place. This is where we search for Him until we find Him and then we never let Him go. The Spirit will fall on us with the fulfillment of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-23,

““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

When a couple is married the two become one flesh. God is bringing forth oneness; not mere unity— but rather oneness with Christ and oneness with one another. As we become one with Him we, in turn, see others as He sees them and can be one with them through the revelation of His agape love.

It is the time to “be still and know!” There is an unbreakable “knowing” that comes through the intimacy of oneness. When Mary was visited by the angel who announced that she would conceive a son, she questioned him saying, “How can this be since I have never known a man?” (Luke 1:34) This “knowing” is speaking of sexual intimacy which is a human and physical act that brings oneness and bears fruit. It is an earthly representation of a spiritual truth. The spiritual act of intimacy also ushers in oneness and bears fruit through the revelation of Jesus— our eternal Bridegroom.

Continue to wait in your upper room and yet run in your spirit to search for Him. Oneness is coming which will reform and transform everything and everyone. Then…the world will know!

Perfect Peace!

By Kathi Pelton

I wrote the following article three years ago. It came up today on my Facebook Memories and it is even more fitting today then it was then. I pray it blesses you!

Perfect Peace

In a world that is in constant chaos it can be a challenge to find peace. Yet we are told in Isaiah 26:3 that if we trust in the Lord and keep our minds on Him that we will not only have peace— but perfect peace.

Now, I don’t know about you but most of the battles that I face are fought on the battlefield of my mind. When earthly circumstances challenge my heavenly hope (faith) the initial battle is played out in my mind. Who will I trust? Will I trust in my natural means to fix the circumstances? Will I trust God? Will I let the storm dictate my direction or will I allow peace to keep me on the path of righteousness?

Will I live with merely a “sense of peace” or will I press in to obtain “perfect peace?”

Let’s just be honest; one of the battles that all mankind faces revolves around money and resources! Having resources (money or needed supplies) can give a real “sense of peace” that often can keep us from having to face some of life’s storms that lack can cause.

I remember an extended season of time in our family when we had more than enough in our bank account to take care of our own needs and even be able to help others in need. My husband’s business was prospering greatly. When our car needed new tires or had an engine problem we merely took it into our mechanic and told him to fix the problem. We didn’t lose peace because we knew that we had what we needed to pay for the problem to be fixed. If one of our children came to us with a need, I easily could say, “Dad and I will take care of that for you!” Our bills were paid early, our gas tanks were full, our kitchen had all of the food we needed and we gave generously to others without leaving us in need. Now, we know that money cannot fix the needs of relational issues or sickness but I wanted to give you an example of how a circumstantial blessing can give us a sense of peace.

Now let’s talk about perfect peace!

Perfect peace goes beyond a “sense of peace”. Money can come to an end; we can lose a job, economies can change or even tragedies can happen that money cannot fix. Then what? Where did that sense of peace go?

Whether we are in abundance or in great need, we need to nurture and practice living in the place of perfect peace. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are the only sure thing! God never shifts or changes, He’s never unavailable, He’s never broke, sick or tired. We can go to Him day and night and know that His character remains true and perfect.

He will come into our storm tossed boat and calm the waves, speaking those familiar words. “Peace be still.” He has authority over EVERY earthly thing. Although He does not promise that the storms will not come, He does promise His perfect peace to calm you in the midst of the storm. The only condition to that promise is that we trust Him and keep our minds steadfast upon Him. We dwell on things above!

Are you in a storm today? When I begin to feel the battle in my mind I replace the anxious thoughts with the truths found in the Word! Every anxious question is answered with a promise of His peace and faithfulness. He then speaks the words, “Come into the safety of My perfect peace.” I don’t have to fix my eyes on my the lack or where earthly supply will come from because He has everything that I need. He has everything that you need. He is inviting you into this place of perfect peace as well. Breathe deep and enter in.

Isaiah 26:3 in the Amplified Bible says,

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.”

It’s time to fix our minds (our thoughts, affections and focus) upon Him with confidence in the fact that He is who He says He is! Trust Him even when answers seem delayed. Lean on Him with absolute confidence. Then, His peace will guard your heart and mind (Philippians 4:7). In a world of uncertainties— there is One who we can be confidently certain of! He holds the whole world in His hands; the One who sets the boundaries of the seas also sets the boundaries of the storms that come upon the shores of your life. You will not be overcome for He has overcome and He will secure your boundaries!
