WATCH AS THE CHAOS SENT AGAINST YOU SUDDENLY BRINGS YOU INTO DESTINY

By Kathi Pelton

-I wrote this a year ago but felt the Spirit ask me to re-share it with you. –

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us. This is happening for many right now. We all know from scripture that when the enemy comes in—like a flood— the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

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

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

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

Finding Home

By Kathi Pelton

“Home” is a place where one lives. It is where we return after a day of hard work or school, it is the place that we find rest, comfort and belonging. It is said that “Home is where your heart is.”

I have lived in over thirty physical structures that I have called “home.” But there is only one place that is my true home— the place that my heart can be found and that my soul finds comfort and rest. That is in the presence and love of my God.

One of my favorite things to do is to make a house a home (and I’ve sure had plenty o opportunities to practice this passion!). I love to fill every space and corner with something that causes our family or our guests to find beauty and rest. Whether it’s our living room or laundry room, I want it to be warm and inviting. But if I did all of these things and removed the presence of Jesus it would only point people to beautiful things rather than the beautiful One!

I once met a homeless man that I drove across the city we lived in. He often came to our church with his few belongings and always a big smile. As I drove him that day I asked him what it was like to be homeless? We lived in an area where it rained a lot and winters could be very cold. When I asked the question, his face lit up and he said, “I am not homeless; I have found my home in Jesus.” Then he proceeded to tell me how he has found family among the homeless population and brings Jesus to them so that they can find a home in Him as well.

As we have all been quarantined with our “stay at home” orders I have discovered that it is not the beauty of my home that has sustained my soul but it is the beauty of His presence that has made my “stay home” order such a sweet time of refuge and peace. If Christ was removed it would merely be a house rather than a home. It would be a shelter but not a place of rest.

“My people will live in safety, quietly at home. They will be at rest.” Isaiah‬ ‭32:18‬ ‭

If our houses (lives) are built upon the Rock of Jesus they will truly be “home.” They will withstand storms, seasons and be a refuge of safety.

“Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.” Matthew‬ ‭7:25‬

Bedrock is defined as the solid rock underlying loose deposits such as soil. It is also defined as the fundamental principles on which something is based. Christ is our bedrock in which everything else is built upon— based upon! He is home base!

“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2‬ ‭

If you come into my house I know that you will feel safe; not because of the beautiful things but because the Lord is our shelter, refuge and place of safety. He is home! Buildings, mansions or castles don’t provide home; only Christ makes a home for every heart and every life. Everything else is void of true home and true shelter.

He stands at the door of our hearts and knocks— longing to come in and dwell with us. Let Him in to every part; every corner of your life! Then you will find that “Home is where your heart is.”

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!

It’s No Longer Time To Survive But It’s Time To Thrive

By Kathi Pelton

I often think that we aren’t aware of when we begin living out of a 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑣𝑖𝑣𝑎𝑙 𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑑𝑠𝑒𝑡. It is like an old default setting that was hardwired into our souls that we depend upon when things around us begin to be out of our ability to control them.

For me, I learned early on in life to be an expert at 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑣𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔. This did not serve me well when it came to issues of surrender or intimacy because the thought behind every surviver mentality is that there is something bad and tragic to survive. And I had a lot happen that reinforced that belief.

In my early years of walking with Jesus, I began to understanding that I couldn’t grow without letting go. I had to learn the difference between surviving and overcoming. Surviving kept me alive but didn’t allow me to thrive because it was rooted in trauma and self-preservation. The kindness and love of fhe Father began to teach me that overcoming was what He desired which is rooted in dependency and trust; not in me or my self-preservation but in full surrender and yielding to Him alone.

This was not an overnight process because the hardwiring to survive and the expectation of being left alone was at my core. It was a process of facing frightening times and deep fears and choosing surrender rather than protection. I had to allow my heart to risk loving and being loved. Surviving put a lock on my heart but overcoming was to open that door 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑔𝑜 𝑙𝑎𝑦 𝑑𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝐽𝑒𝑠𝑢𝑠 𝑖𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑚𝑖𝑑𝑠𝑡 𝑜𝑓 𝑎 𝑠𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑚.

I remember when my family brought a foster baby into our home. I could feel my heart falling deeply in love with this little boy. Somehow I knew deep inside that he was only “on loan“ to us. I had a choice- I could merely care for him and survive losing him or I could open my heart and give him all the love he deserved and I had wifhin me to give. So, knowing that my heart would face incredible loss I gave it fully to him. For four years I loved that little boy with everything in me. It was so beautiful! Most days I’d lay down with him during his nap time and just stare at him, pray for him and tears would often flow as I overcame what I knew was coming. Sure enough that day came but through the terrible pain I had no regrets because I hadn’t held anything back. He would carry throughout his life all the love that I’d poured into him even if he didn’t remember me. And I would always have the memory and beauty of four years of loving the sweetest little boy. It’s been six years since then and I have no regrets. I learned to overcome so that I could experience deep intimacy rather than merely survive and experience only the shallow places.

There is a healing that is being offered by the Father that takes your hand and walks you into the deeper waters of surrender and trust so that you can experience the fullness of beauty, intimacy and encounter. Will pain still come? Yes, but you won’t merely survive pain but thrive in the midst of pain. Surrender has been the greatest gift because it allows me to 𝑙𝑒𝑡 𝑔𝑜!
In that place I find that I experience being held by the arms of my God when I feel like pain leaves me unable to breathe. His love and intimate presence becomes my breath and my overcoming strength. It is then that I thrive!

My life is so much richer from having loved when loss was a high risk. I’ve done that many times now. Actually, all earthly love (except for our love for Jesus) has that risk. But the choice is to self-preserve and hold back or to lay it all down and love fully knowing that the the 𝙊𝙣𝙚 𝙎𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙚 will carry us through the times of loss and pain. I have always gained far more then I lost when I’ve given all of me.

It’s time to give 𝑎𝑙𝑙 𝑜𝑓 𝑦𝑜𝑢 to the One who gave all of Him for you. Ask Him to reset you to the default of an overcomer not merely a survivor. Again, overcoming takes dependency, surrender and letting go of control. It’s so worth rhe cost!

It’s time to thrive while you’re alive- not only survive. Holy Spirit come and do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Help us to let go and find where you are in the midst of storms so that we can lay down with you…𝑙𝑒𝑎𝑛𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑜𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑙𝑎𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑎𝑟𝑚𝑠.

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!

It’s Time For Your Vats To Overflow!

By Kathi Pelton

Did you know that as believers we are not under the control of the chaos, confusion and circumstances of the world around us? The promises of God are above the bad reports of the earth below.

Today I was praying through the first and second chapters of the Book of Proverbs and I was so taken by the amazing wisdom that produces the promises of God to be made manifest in our lives as we “listen and obey.”

Here are just a few of them:

• If you cry out for insight and understanding, God will give you wisdom, knowledge and understanding. (2:1-4)

• As you receive wisdom, knowledge and understanding you will gain success! (2:6)

• As you live in integrity God will guard and protect your path. (2:7-9)

• As you walk in the wisdom of God you will be rescued from darkness. (2:9-20)

• As you live an upright life you will “inhabit the land and remain in it.” The wicked will be cut off and uprooted from it. (2:21-22)

• As you keep God’s commands He will give you many days, a full life and well-being. (3:1-2)

• As you hold fast to loyalty and faithfulness you will find favor WITH GOD AND MAN! (3:3-4)

• As you trust in the Lord and acknowledge His ways (not depending on your own understanding) He will guide you on the RIGHT paths. (3:5-6)

• As you fear the Lord and turn away from evil, healing will come to your body and strength to your bones. (3:7-8)

And, one last promise! This is a key one…

• As you honor the Lord with your processions and the first fruits of your increase He promises that YOUR BARNS WILL BE COMPLETELY FILLED AND YOUR VATS WILL OVERFLOW WITH NEW WINE!!

There are so many more promises that a lifestyle of wisdom and obedience ushers in. This is part of the amazing alignments that have been taking place. To live apart from obedience that comes from His wisdom is like trying to take a drink from a water fountain and turning it on but not aligning your mouth with the stream of water. The lack of alignment causes the flowing water to pour down the drain; never quenching your thirst.

We must open our spiritual mouths and then align our lives with the flowing wisdom that fills our lives to overflowing! Then our barns will be filled completely and the “vats” of our lives will overflow (a vat is a large tank that holds liquid). It’s time to hold the liquid of the new wine of His glory and His promises!

While the world eats of the “grapes of wrath” let us, as God’s people, be filled with the new wine that is grown in the vineyards of wisdom and oneness.

It’s time to align to drink the new wine!

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!

Separation Has Brought Us Together— We Are Becoming One!

By Kathi Pelton

When we say that God’s ways are not our ways we truly aren’t kidding! Who could have ever guessed that the thing that was sent to separate us would be used to unite us like never before?

I have never seen so many nations, generations and denomination coming together day after day on ZOOM calls, FB Lives, online worship and prayer meetings! And as I’m sure that you’ve noticed; these are not quick “on the surface” times but they are deep, beautiful and life changing times together.

In the Fall of 2019 the Lord took me into a vision where I saw demons playing cards around a poker table and they had become so confident in their winning streak that they were about to put all their chips in the pot— betting it all in one hand. But in this vision the enemies cheating hand was about to be exposed and “he would overplay his hand” causing a great victory for God’s people and a great defeat for the enemy. The plunder would be transferred to God’s people.

This “separation” has definitely overplayed his hand and suddenly the enemy is losing at the hand he bet on! The body of Christ is rising up in her identity, they are coming together as one family now that there are no church walls or denominational names to divide them. Together they are repenting, changing, partaking of communion and giving generously in the midst of their time of need. What the enemy meant for harm is now healing His Ecclesia and making us one.

You can no longer get lost in a crowd because the crowds are gone and we are seeing each other with new eyes, new longings and new alignments. I keep hearing people speak the words, “We are all in this together.” And it is so true! The Aw entire world has been drawn into home, into family and into a church that has no walls, no denominational affiliation and no end. You can wake up anytime of the night and join with believers from around the world to worship or pray. While the family of God has been quarantined behind the doors of her homes she has begun the greatest outreach we’ve ever seen. Social media has opened the doors to our homes, our lives and our families where all are welcome.

I have probably wept more with the family of a God from around the world these past few weeks then in a long time. I’ve wept for joy at His goodness and His kindness as He unites our hearts. His bride is so beautiful! She is returning to First Love!

As Passover has begun I feel the awe of God as we have responded to Jesus knocking again the doors of our hearts and homes— we have let Him come in. He is ridding our hearts of unneeded things and making room for His communion table to be set. His blood has been placed upon the entrances (doorway) of our hearts and lives as we’ve allowed the finished work of the cross to be the center once again.

This morning as I was awakening from a dream I saw the Lord come and put His blood upon our foreheads, our hands and our feet. All the places that were pierced when He gave His life for us were being touched by the pure and perfect Passover Lamb’s blood; who has once and for all caused eternal death to pass us by.

As I saw this I felt a deep longing to go to every member of our family and take some of the juice from my communion cup and put a drop of it on their foreheads, their hands and their feet as an act of coming into agreement and announcing that we are covered with the blood of mercy (the Passover Lamb) that has made us clean once and forever! No plague (which in Hebrew is translated as “virus”) can separate us from the love of God or the eternal life purchased for us by Yeshua.

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

What the enemy meant to separate and divide us has brought forth a greater oneness with Christ and with one another then we have ever experienced before this time. We do not forget the fact that lives have been lost and we grieve with those who grieve. But we cannot overlook the beautiful fragrance coming forth from the homes and lives of His people.

Yesterday, Bill Johnson was on an online gathering with our global family and he described how when you go into a jewelry store to purchase a diamond ring the jeweler will lay it upon a piece of black velvet because when a diamond is presented against a backdrop of darkness and then light is shone in it— it’s brilliance is displayed best.

The Lord is suddenly placing His Bride on display against a backdrop of global darkness and shining the light of His sovereignty, His love and His adoration upon her and “she is radiant and brilliant.” She is all together lovely! Her different facets are shining with the brilliance of a cut diamond.

I just want to take this moment to say to each of you; you have taken my breath away! Seeing your faces, the worship from your living rooms, and reading your words of devotion to God have been the greatest non-stop church service I’ve ever attended! Thank you! My “face time” with God has become all the more rich because I have been face to face with you. The worship of the nations has drawn me back to first love!
