Two Dreams: Prayer Can Change What Lies Ahead

By Kathi Pelton

I am writing this in the middle of the night so that I do not forget the dreams that I just had or the message I received through them.

In the first dream I was taken over the earth where in the spiritual atmosphere of the second heavens there was a timeline that looked like individual “film stills” (photos) that were setting in place for future events. These scenes and pictures appeared to be securely set in and unchangable as they were going before “real time on earth.” They seemed to prophesy from the demonic realm— like the enemy was producing a movie that was being played out on earth ahead of time. It was his narrative and his script for what lies ahead.

Then, as I looked upon this furture timeline (which included catastrophic events, upheaval and hopelessness) I suddenly saw smoke coming from the earth that was from a huge golden incense jar. This wasn’t like the smoke that billows from a fire with dark plumes of black, but it was a steady stream of colorful smoke that danced like a gentle river as it ascending toward heaven. When this incense touched this future timeline that was being set in place (produced), the photos of “what was coming” began to melt away. They were being pulled out of what has appeared “set and secured” for our future and melting as this incense touched it, causing the scenes to disappear. Then I saw before my eyes the words, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.

As I woke up I heard the Spirit of the Lord repeating over and over, “Pray, it changes things! Pray, pray, pray!” I saw once again how prayer creates an incense that interrupts the enemy’s plan and script to make an opening in the heavens for God’s will and plans to come to earth. It is when God’s people pray that times and seasons align with the will of God. It makes a way for “On earth as it is in Heaven.”

The enemy always has a different script that wants to usurp God’s ways, plans and timeline. His brings hopelessness that gives the message that “no change is available” but God is inviting us to pray like never before because the prayers of the saints will melt away the plans of the evil one and open up a way for the plans of the Lord to be done on earth in His way and His timing. God’s ways always bring hope and promise; even in the midst of judgement. Mercy remains present!

The second dream that I had was of a constant sound that was over the earth at this time. This was a demonic sound that was repeating phrases over and over that were brainwashing the people of the earth. They spoke evil things and called them good and then called good things evil. I heard phrases like, “Communism is good.”, “Marxism is good.” along with many other phrases. It had a seductive spirit that caused even some of God’s elect to begin to believe this message. In this dream the “spiritual soundtrack” of these messages was constant and subliminal. I remember at one point in the dream being allowed to feel the alluring that it was releasing upon people’s minds so that they would begin to believe the unimaginable. It was like a drug that altered minds.

Though I was not shown a solution in this dream (only the condition of what was happening) I woke up wanting to trumpet the Word of God like a shofar into the atmosphere. I longed to get my Bible out and begin to pray and decree His infallible Word. I wanted to shout the good news of the gospel of Christ and His truths as written in the scriptures.

I believe that in these two dreams there are two clear messages:

• Prayer releases an incense that cuts through the future plans of the enemy and opens a way for “on earth as it is in Heaven.”

And,

• The sound of the Living Word that is found in the written Word will overcome the sound that is redefining what is evil as good and what is good as evil. Release His sound of truth!

Please take the strategies that the Lord is releasing in this hour and put them into action. This is not merely a time to say, “Amen” but to put into practice prayer and the declarations of His written Word that is alive! Pray the Word, pray in the Spirit, pray for His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Join the intercession of Jesus.

We must not be passive and begin to sink under the lies that says no change is available. If that was so then why does Jesus intercede? Why did He pray during His time on earth and why did He teach His disciples to pray? It is because, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS! We also know that His Word does not return void— so release His Word!

“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

An American Apology To The Great I Am

By Kathi Pelton

We live in a glorious land filled with rocky mountains,
green valleys,
rolling hills and
blooming deserts.

We have beautiful diversity in our people, places and languages.

We have known the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship and freedom to make personal choices. How blessed we have been.

Our pledge of allegiance declares that we are “One Nation Under God” and our currency reads “In God We Trust”…but America— we have divided our nation from the One we claimed to love.

God has looked for those who will stand in the gap of this great divide to pray– to repent– to turn back and to bow low.

Here we are!

Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for trading—
Mercy for mammon
Grace for greed
Freedom for captivity
Trust for tyranny
Unity for division
And- love for hate.

It is said that “United we stand, divided we fall” We are falling, oh God! We have divided from you and now freedom is falling, liberty is lacking and unity is unseen.

Our divided history has resurfaced, the secret societies have been revealed and the hidden agendas are now exposed for all to see. We are naked, we are cold and we need you!

God have mercy!

Those who still call upon your name, who put their trust in you and who know that you are our only hope now bow down.

We bow down in sorrow, we bow down in worship, we bow down in repentance and we bow down in prayer. We humble ourselves before the you— the great I Am.

Unless the Lord builds a house then all is vanity— forgive us for the vain and the profane. You are the only foundation that stands— therefore, we bow down and declare to the foundations of America, “Come back to the Rock that is higher than you! Return to the One who died for you!”

We bow low that you may be lifted high. Higher than our mountains, higher than our might, higher than our lofty thoughts. We declare, “Not by our might, not by our power but only by your Spirit shall we be saved!”

Forgive us for turning away from truth, turning from the one true way, turning from peace, turning from blessing, turning away from covenant and turning away from you.

We stand in the gap as representatives of this nation called the United States of America and we turn back to you! We declare that we are one nation under God and that our trust is in you alone. We declare true liberty from the captivity of sin for all. We declare your justice for every person of every color. We bridge the great divide with our repentance and our declaration of allegiance to you!

We love your Word, we love your ways and we surrender all to you today. Jesus, you are our King, our Lord, our Savior and our God. In you we trust and in you we put our confident hope. We run to you.

Forgive us, heal us and unite us in the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and have given to us. The blood of Jesus speaks a better word!

God Bless America— the land that we love. Stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above.

Amen!

Let There Be Light!

By Kathi Pelton

When my husband was attending Bible college in Louisiana, each week we would drive to pick up an elderly blind woman so that she could attend church and have fellowship. She lived in a very poor housing community and because she was blind she never needed to turn on the lights. Each week when we’d arrive we’d find her sitting in the dark. We would enter her one room home and click on the light sthat we could see— and each week, to our horror, the walls would appear to move because the light would expose the swarms of cock roaches that came out in darkness. They had multiplied exponentially in the darkness where a blind person lived. I share this story because I will never forget the shock and horror of seeing this each week when we brought light into the room. All that lurked in the darkness was exposed.

Today as I prayed for our nation I found myself praying that the Lord would “turn on the light and expose all that lurks in the darkness.” Quite frankly— that prayer is not a comfortable prayer because 2020 has surely been a year of exposurer that has left most feeling the same shock and horror that I felt as a young woman when I’d turn on the lights in this elderly blind woman’s tiny home. But if 2020 is a year of clarity and clear vision then we know from Ephesians 5:13-14 that “everything exposed by the light is made clear.”

“Everything exposed by the light is made clear, for what makes everything clear is light. Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.” Ephesians‬ ‭5:13-14‬ ‭

In some ways we were all similar to this precious blind woman prior to 2020. We lived in a blindness to what was lurking in the darkness of our nation (and the nations). Although we were not completely unaware of what was hidden by the darkness— we had no idea what was about to be exposed. 2020 has been as though someone came into a roach infested home and clicked on the lights!

Ephesians 5:8-11 says,

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light — for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth — discerning what is pleasing to the Lord. Don’t participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them.”

The good news is that once you know the gravity of the “infestation” then you can begin to bring the light that “results in goodness, righteousness and truth.” Exposure is shocking and even horrific but once the initial shock and awe passes it is time to clean house!

I personally make a habit of asking God to shine His light upon my life to expose any darkness or unclean thing that may be lurking in the shadows. I long for and earnestly seek to have clean hands and a pure heart. Though I do not enjoy the moment that something unholy is exposed, I am grateful for the mercy of God that brings light so that there is no darkness found within me.

As a nation it is as though we’ve been shaken out of a state of denial as the light has exposed darkness. It was already there but merely hidden from sight. It is hard to view and to look upon such vast darkness but just as in my own life, I pray that the light of Christ would come upon the deep and hidden places of darkness so that they can be exposed and made clean.

What now? That is a good question! His Word carries many answers for us. Although we know that in the end times the dark will become darker— we also know that the light will become brighter. So how do we exterminate what lurks in darkness? Let’s go further in the Book of Ephesians to chapter 6 beginning in verse 10,

“Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:10-12‬ ‭

Our battle in truly not against “flesh and blood” but against “the rulers, the authorities and the world powers of darkness— against spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Too many believers in Jesus are battling “flesh and blood” in this hour! Yes, these spiritual forces of evil that rule in the heavens are effecting the actions of mankind but if you’re focused on flesh and blood then you are fighting a losing battle. Just scroll through social media for five minutes and you will see how many Christian’s are battling flesh and blood. The true enemy is not found in the streets of America, in the halls of government buildings, in the media or even in those who lead social media platforms— the enemy is the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens that are controlling these individuals and agencies!

We must read further—

“This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s word. Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:13-18‬ ‭

This is not a simple Sunday school lesson or song but a profound truth and strategy from Heaven about spiritual warfare. It’s time to stop talking about the roaches and reporting their movement and begin to “extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one” through truth, righteousness, thr gospel of peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God and Spirit filled (led) intercession!

This is not only a year of seeing clearly but it is the year of the “mouth” (Hebrew year that means “Pey” which is the mouth). Our mouths can reveal light and truth. Paul, the writer of Ephesians, goes on to make this request in Ephesians 6,

“Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel. For this I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:19-20‬

It is time to open our mouths to “make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel!” We are His ambassadors, clothed in the armor of God— letting light come forth from the very way that we fight our battles and from the words that reveal the Light of the World in the midst of darkness!

Pray that we, as God’s people, will walk in light, in boldness (in Him) to speak as we should. The light that we shine will expose the darkness to all who see. Do not continue to fill your thoughts and minds with every report of darkness but rather be bold and speak forth light. It’s time to take every thought captive so that we can tear down stronghold rather than just pointing them out!

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:3-6‬ ‭

We need “divine power” that comes through full surrender to the obedience of Christ. We demolish every argument through divine power. “Not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit.”— divine power!

It is time to be bold in Him and reveal the mysteries of light! Let’s stop talking about the darkness so much and begin to be “ambassadors of light!” Although more exposure is still to come and needs to come, we also know that we are the ones to bring the light that awakens the sleeper so that the Messiah will shine the light of His truth to the world.

REMNANT— ROAR — RUACH: The Spiritual Three R’s of 2020

By Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”

REMNANT

I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.

As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”

From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.

The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.

There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings the revelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!

ROAR

The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.

After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.

“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8

I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.

RUACH

The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”

As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.

Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14

The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross 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.”

The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!

We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!

Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!

May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!

Let it be so!

Rising Above The Noise To Hear The True Sound

By Kathi Pelton

There is a noise that is heard on earth in this hour that has been sent to control and manipulate nations and people: it is a noise that declares fear, hate, accusations, hopelessness, ruin, conspiracy and unbelief. It is constantly flowing through the airwaves of communication to bombard peace with chaos and love with anger.

But— there is a sound that dispels the noise and parts the waters that seek to take us under. It is the sound of the voice of our God! To hear it, you must get above the noise. This is what the voice of our God sounds like,

“The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea. The God of glory thunders. The Lord thunders over the mighty sea. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning. The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare. In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!””
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭29:3-9‬ ‭

His voice strips the noise (the enemy) of it’s power and it’s authority to alter the times and seasons that the Lord has put in place. His voice shakes what can be shaken to bring us back to the solid foundation of righteousness, truth and justice. His voice thunders above the noise and yet restores peace, hope and joy. His voice breaks hate with the power of agape love.

I would love to think that all believers in Jesus are tuned into the sound of His voice but based on what I’m seeing on social media sites I’d say that the noise is infiltrating the lives of many— bringing fear, anger, confusion and chaos.

But we can leave the realm of noise to enter the place where the sound of His voice echoes throughout time and eternity. It is there that we are reset, gain heavenly perspective and are strengthened in our inner man through the Holy Spirit.

“The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.” Psalm 46:6

The noise is the nations in an uproar but there is a roar that comes from the Lion of Judah that is mighty to save!

In the Book of Revelation, chapter one takes us right into the sound of His voice being like a trumpet. And what does His voice do? It brings John into a revelation of our resurrected Lord,

“And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.” Revelation‬ ‭1:13-16‬ ‭

The nations need to hear the trumpet sound of His voice that brings them into a revelation of “Who He is!” We, the church, need to remember and behold the resurrected King of Glory! He is a lion and when He roars all the earth is shaken.

I have shared in other writings of mine recently that I am hearing the echo of the “breaking of jars” that Gideon’s army of 300 broke to reveal the blazing torches and release the sound of the trumpet (ram’s horn). This echo or sound plays in my spirit constantly. I know that it is a prophetic sound and revelatory sound. Last Tuesday I was in Washington DC praying when this sound increased in my spirit. But this time I was given eyes to see the “blazing torches of fire” that are about to be revealed before the enemy and his armies— it is the blazing fire of His eyes!

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.” Revelation 19:12

I believe that before 2020 is completed we will experience a shift that comes when the sound of jars are broken once again but this time they will reveal His eyes of blazing fire and the sound of His roar. This will cause a confusion to come upon the enemies camp that brings forth a great victory. It will be the sound that breaks the noise!

It will be like the time that the Lord looked down out of the pillar of fire upon Pharaoh’s army,

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

It is time to get out of the noise and to hear the sound that brings hope, brings victory and reveals the Lion of Judah! May our voices join with the sound that exults the One with the voice that trumpets triumph! He is God— the earth belongs to Him and all that is within it.

People and Nations Becoming Rooted and Grounded in Love

By Kathi Pelton

The Holy Spirit has had me praying for the body of Christ and our nation out of Ephesians 3, beginning with verse 16, for the past few weeks. Verse 16 says,

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:16‬

What a powerful and wonderful prayer that we should all be praying for every believer. It’s such a Kairos time to see the Spirit of the Lord empower each of us with “inner strength” out of His “glorious and unlimited resources!” This is a prayer we should be praying over our lives, our loved ones and even our nations leaders who believe in Christ as their Savior. An inner strength is needed like never before in our lifetime.

Ephesians 3 goes on to say in verse 17,

“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:17

I see so many who are weary and feeling weak and yet this verse offers a solid solution for keeping you strong. As you are empowered by His Spirit with inner strength; which will produce trust in Him— then Christ will make His home in your heart. As your heart becomes a resting place for our Savior, His love will empower you and the roots of your life will go deep into the rich soil of His love. It’s a beautiful progression of inward prosperity and riches.

If trust in God is what causes Him to make His home in our heart then just think of what would happen if our nation(s) turned back to “In God We Trust!” God would find a home and a resting place in the heart of our nation once again. But often these restorations begin in the house of God (in His people first).

Let’s continue onto verse 18,

“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭

This is so essential for God’s people! If we would pray that the Spirit would empower us to understand the width, length, height and depth of the His love then we would know what is needed and what the world is crying out to understand and experience. It says, “…as all God’s people should…” In other words, we don’t but we should! Often as you scroll through social media and observe much of what God’s people have to say, what you will quickly discover is that there are a lot of opinions and words without a depth of love— or without being rooted in love. What is prophesy or words without love?

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-2‬ ‭

The gifts of the Spirit without the love of God are just noise! There is already too much noise out there. What sets our words and voice apart from all the noise? Love! When we begin to be rooted in the love of God, which begins with trusting Him, then we release the sound that breaks through the noise! Love is the frequency of Heaven that shatters darkness, confusion and fear. It breaks through barriers and opens deaf ears.

Ephesians 3:19 goes on to say this,

“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:19‬

There is an “experience that surpasses understanding.” When a person has an experience with the love of God— then they are forever changed! I can understand that “you love me” but the personal experience with your love will impact and change my life!

Men and women are made complete and “full of life” when they experience God’s love. But what does this verse also say? They will be made complete in His “power” that comes from God!!

I have been around Christian ministers who moved in a so-called power ministry and yet there was a great lack of love. Power without love is illegal! Almost all of these ministries end up falling away because we must be rooted and grounded in love to rightfully be empowered by His Spirit and to see others experience the life changing power that the love of God brings. Power without love will destroy both the user and the receiver.

Finally, Ephesians 3:20 says,

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭

We love this verse!! The “more than we can ask or think (imagine)” is one of Christian’s favorite verses. But we must put it into context. This verse comes after verses 16-19. There is a progression that we cannot skip.

• Praying for His Spirit to empower us with inner strength.

• Trusting Him so that He makes His home in our hearts.

• Allowing the roots of our life to go deep in the soil of His love.

• Asking to understand the fullness of the love of God.

• Asking to experience the love of God since we cannot fully understand it.

• Asking the Spirit to make you complete with all life and power that comes from God.

• Yeilding to God’s mighty power to work in each of us which accomplishes more than we can ask or imagine!

I believe that these are key verses the Spirit of God wants prayed over our lives, our loved ones and those in leadership. Love shifts everything! It changes the sound, the narrative, the power to change the lives around us, the atmosphere and the world!

Let’s silence the noise and release the sound that has depth, width, length and height…the sound that is rooted in the love of God!

A Dream About Washington D.C.

By Kathi Pelton

In May of 2019 I was in Washington DC with the Awaken the Dawn family for a gathering. During my first night there I had a dream about Washington DC and our nation that was so real and vivid that it shifted everything in my life. I have not shared it before now publicly.

The Dream-

In this dream I found myself standing in a large room in Washington DC and when I looked around I saw Christian ministry leaders that I know from all across the world. I saw leaders from Israel, Germany, Japan, Canada, England, Egypt and many other nations. I was completely surprised to see them with me in Washington DC. I turned to them and said, “Why are you here?”

The leader from Germany looked at me and said, “The Lord came to each one of us and said to us, ‘You must go and stand with the United States in this hour. If the United States doesn’t make it then your nation will not make it.’”

Then many of the leaders began to tell me how they were told to “bring their trust in God” and pour it into America. As they spoke about pouring their trust in God unto our nation I was immediately taken in the spirit over the national mall in DC.

It was night and nothing was lit. No monuments, no buildings— not even the Capitol Building— and the streets and national mall were void of people. It was dark and void of life.

Then I heard the sound of these international men and women, along with those from the United States, begin to release the sound of “In God We Trust” and as they did this the entire national mall lit up— but with a light so bright that it wasn’t just “lights coming on” but a glory that shone so brightly that it glowed with a brilliance that I’d never seen before.

Then an enormous silver coin appeared over Washington DC that was blank. As the sound of the nations and our nation continued releasing this “sound of trust in God” suddenly this illuminated view of the national mall appeared upon the coin with the same brilliance as it was on the ground and after it was imprinted in the coin suddenly the illuminated words, “IN GOD WE TRUST” appeared upon this enormous coin. I knew that something had been established and restored as these international leaders came to stand with us. This coin remained hovering over DC.

As I woke up, I immediately felt that this would actually happen— men and women from many nations will be asked by the Lord to come and stand with us in a time of great darkness to restore our trust in God.

In May 2019 when I had this dream I didn’t understand why it felt as though this would occur soon because our nation “appeared” to be in such a strong place. Now, a year later— I have much greater understanding.

This dream also was the trigger that the the Lord used for asking our family and ministry to move to the Washington DC region from the West Coast. We were told we must be here as 2020 began so we arrived in January.

I believe that the enemy is trying to take our nation down in order to trigger a domino effect in many other nations destruction. I know that many say, “As the United States goes, so goes the nations.” I have heard that for many years and it is not in any national arrogance or pride that I repeat it; but rather because in this dream these international church leaders spoke those words to me.

I am yearning and praying that at the right time that the Spirit of the Lord would speak to our international family and ask them to come to our nations capital to stand with us and to bring their trust.

The unifying of many nations with our nation would heal so many wounds. I have traveled the nations and have wept many times as I heard great hatred spoken (sometimes screamed) about our nation— even by Christians. God is bringing a John 17:20-23 movement and global “oneness” within His Ecclesia. We must forgive, repent and love our neighbor as ourselves.

““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.”
‭‭John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

Last night on the drive home from the 4th of July fireworks we pulled up behind a car with a Virginia license plate with the words upon it, “In God We Trust” and the American flag waving. The license plate letters and numbers said this, “KATHI17” (I wish I had gotten a photo!!). What!?!?!

I immediately knew that God was speaking to me on our 2020 Independence Day regarding this dream. I believe that one day, and one day soon— the nations will come and gather with us in Washington DC; oneness and trust will bring the glory of the Lord to illuminate our nation and restore it to trust in God again. I believe that this “coin” will be given to the nations as a gift and a prophesy for their nation to be restore as well. This may also represent that the US will bring about an economic restoration for the nations as we turn back to God. A coin can also be a symbol of “change!”

“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”

The Echo

By Kathi Pelton

For many days now I have been hearing the word, “Echo.” Of a matter of fact I hear it and see it so often that it has now become like an echo in my ears. When I hear a word that repetitively I must stop and ask the Lord, “What are you saying?” So I did.

As I waited upon the Lord I was first led to look up the meaning of the word.

Echo: a repetition of sound produced by the reflection of sound waves from a wall, mountain, or other obstructing surface. a sound heard again near its source after being reflected.

When sound hits a hard surface or obstruction an echo is created as the sound waves bounce back near the source— we truly seem to have hit a mountain or obstruction globally and it is causing a great echo.

As I prayed I was taken to Hebrews 11 and heard the words,

“The echo of faith from the saints of old, who believed in Yahweh, has joined with the faith of those who believe today. The sound of old and sound of the new has become one clear echo which is a battering ram against the opposition that seeks to kill, steal and destroy. Mountains will come down!”

Hear are some of the words from Hebrews 11,

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:13‬ ‭

The great cloud of witnesses are watching the faith that they stood in long ago and the faith that we stand in converge as a sound that will echo through the earth today and through eternity. The intermingling of their faith and our faith is creating a frequency of sound that will break the barriers! It is the sound of those who stood in faith, walked by faith, persevered in faith and by faith took down mountains!

Let faith arise in this hour! Let it arise like never before. Grab hold of the same faith that Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived and died in! Let it become intermingled with your faith and the sound of your “yes.” Break the sound barrier of accusation and opposition and may the echo bring the fortified wall tumbling down as in the days of Jericho.

Pray, worship, prophesy, declare His Word aloud and let your feet go forth in faith! Release the sound of faith!

There will be another sound that echoes through the land and that is the sound of the enemy armies crying out in distress,

“The nations will hear of your devastating defeat. your cries of distress will echo throughout the earth. In the panic of their flight one soldier will trip over another and both of them will fall down defeated.” Jeremiah 46:12

Jesus already secured our victory! We know the end of the story and though we see the nations raging and darkness is seen on the earth— the faith of the saints of old and the faith that you live by will echo throughout eternity and will be a battering ram against the armies of darkness. His defeat is as sure as your victory.

Stir up faith. Don’t hide, don’t back down and don’t be found silent. Let the sound of the men and women of faith be heard throughout the earth!

A Remnant Army Is Arising

By Kathi Pelton

For the past several weeks I have been hearing this phrase in my spirit,

“Gideon’s remnant army is arising!”

In Judges 7 we read the story of Gideon’s army. The backdrop to this story is that the Israelites had done evil in the sight of the Lord so they had been handed over to the Midianites for seven years. The Midianites were extremely cruel and oppressed the Israelites so severely that they had taken to hiding in mountains and caves. The Lord summoned Gideon to call forth warriors to face the Midianites. As they prepared to fight them this is what the Lord said,

“You have too many warriors with you. If I let all of you fight the Midianites, the Israelites will boast to me that they saved themselves by their own strength.” Judges‬ ‭7:2‬ ‭

God was not only dealing with the Midianites that had oppressed the Israelites but He was also dealing with the false gods and worship of Baal that had been taking place within the Israelites. God was about to show that He alone is the deliverer and it is His power that sets the captives free.

Before we return to the story of Gideon’s army— is this story beginning to sound like a picture of what we are facing? A nation that has gone from “In God We Trust” to calling darkness “light” and evil “good.” Our nation flies rainbow flags that represent our turning to depravation and deception with great pride while they burn our own flag that once represented freedom and a nation that humbled themselves to trust in God. Cruelty and oppression is seen throughout our land against God’s people. We are censored and many are hiding in caves.

Back to the story—

After God reduced Gideon’s army to a mere 300 men (to face a vast and mighty Midianite force), He instructs them to go to their camp in the middle of the night only armed with clay pots that hide the light of their “blazing” torches and ram horns. These are not exactly the weapons of warfare we’d expect or the number of men needed to be victorious. God had reduced Gideon’s army from approximately 32,000 to a mere 300 men while the Midianite army was so vast that they were like the sands of the seashore— to many to count!

The Lord told Gideon, “With these 300 men I will rescue you and give you victory over the Midianites. Send all the others home.” Judges‬ ‭7:7‬ ‭

Here is what happens next,

“Gideon divided the 300 men into three groups and gave each man a ram’s horn and a clay jar with a torch in it. Then he said to them, “Keep your eyes on me. When I come to the edge of the camp, do just as I do. As soon as I and those with me blow the rams’ horns, blow your horns, too, all around the entire camp, and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’”” Judges‬ ‭7:16-18‬ ‭

Gideon and his group of 100 men went out first to the edge of the Midianite’s camp and they blew their ram’s horns and broke their clay jars revealing the light of their torches. This signaled the two other groups of 100 men to follow.

“Then all three groups blew their horns and broke their jars. They held the blazing torches in their left hands and the horns in their right hands, and they all shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” Each man stood at his position around the camp and watched as all the Midianites rushed around in a panic, shouting as they ran to escape. When the 300 Israelites blew their rams’ horns, the Lord caused the warriors in the camp to fight against each other with their swords. Those who were not killed fled to places as far away as Beth-shittah near Zererah and to the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.” Judges‬ ‭7:20-22‬ ‭

I believe that this story is a picture of what God will do in this hour. It appears as if the body of Christ is facing an enemy army that is so vast that they cannot be numbered. It also seems as though there is a mere remnant that has not departed in fear. What is left is but a “remnant.” Our weapons are absolute foolishness in the eyes of men but God will give us victory in the darkness of night with the blazing torch of Christ and the sound of the shofar and our shout, “For the Lord and for His Bride!”

The modern day Midianites will turn on themselves in fear and God will give a victory that no man can take credit for! It will not be by the strength of men but by the power of God!

It is interesting that every time I see the word “Midianite” the word, “Mediaites” replaces it. The media has become a vast army that oppresses God’s people. They lie, deceive and create a false narratives that controls the listeners. But watch as God gives victory over the “Media-ites!”

Our numbers do not matter! We may appear outnumbered but God and His heavenly hosts are with us. I hear the words from 2 Kings 6:16 declared over us,

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

We carry the blazing torch of truth and light in our left hand and the horn that sounds the declaration of “Yahweh!” in our right hand. The time is approaching where the clay jars will break and the torch will blaze for all to see. The time is coming for the sound of the ram’s horn and the shout of the remnant army to come forth that will grip the enemy’s camp with such fear that victory will come without ever entering into the battle.

There is a Civil War happening in the streets of America. It is the mobs against the cops, blue against red, law against lawlessness— but it is the remnant army that will receive the victory! Our voice will be heard and it will strike fear into the hearts of the wicked. The oppressor will not prevail and tyranny will not triumph! Gideon’s army will once again emerge with victory.

Do You Want Authority and Influence?

By Kathi Pelton

This week I have been thinking and praying about why there are so many in the body of Christ who have many talents and gifts but they are not being used or walking in leadership/authority within the spheres of the talents allotted to them. Why?

I believe that we can find the answer to this question in Luke 19. Beginning in verse 11 and ending in verse 27 we read the parable about the ten talents (minas). In this parable a noble man travels to a distant country to receive authority and become king over that region. He has servants back home and he gives each of them ten talents (minas) and told them to “engage in business” until he returns.

Jesus came to the earth where He will be our eternal king. Mankind (especially His sons and daughters who are servants by choice) have been given talents and asked to “engage in His business” until He returns.

This noble man’s “subjects” hated him and decided to send out a delegation who declare, “We don’t want this man to rule over us!” Maybe this is why he goes to find another country to be king over? (Doesn’t this sound like the delegations filling our country’s city streets with rebellion and anarchy!— not the peaceful protests or voices of reformation but the mobs bent on destruction). Let’s pray that God does not go looking for another country that will honor His authority!

Back to the parable…

When this noble man returns having “received authority to be king” in a far away country, he calls the ten servants that he gave money (talents/minas) to so he can find out how much they made in business. Or— what they did with the talents given to them?

The first one (vs. 16) gained ten more! Then the master told him, “Well done— because you have been faithful in a ‘very small’, I will give you authority over ten cities.”

The second one came and had made an increase of five talents. So, the master gave him authority over five cities. But another servant came and gave the master back only the talent originally given to him because he was his master’s severity so he hid it away. He didn’t even deposit it in the bank where it would earn interest! Because of this the master took away even the talent given to him so that he was left with nothing and was given authority over nothing.

The story concludes with these words,

“‘Yes,’ the king replied, ‘and to those who use well what they are given, even more will be given. But from those who do nothing, even what little they have will be taken away.” Luke‬ ‭19:26‬

This may sound like a hard word but we must understand the truth of sowing and reaping— of stewarding what has been given to us or hiding it away out of fear. We also must understand both the kindness and the severity of God! We cannot separate them or call one good and one bad. A good father is both kind in times of praise and pleasure as well as severe in times of discipline; because he desires to save us, protect us and teach us wisdom.

“Notice how God is both kind and severe. He is severe toward those who disobeyed, but kind to you if you continue to trust in his kindness. But if you stop trusting, you also will be cut off.” Romans 11:22

God is looking for those who can be trusted to steward what He has given to them. As we watch a “delegation of rebellion” take to the streets of our nation, God is looking for those who He can give authority to in different spheres of influence. We do not want to lose Him as the king over our nation!

But— first we must be faithful with the “small” talents entrusted to us and “do God’s business” with them. We must multiply and invest what we have been given so that we are trusted and given authority over more. I believe that this parable is both for this time and for the ages to come after the Lord returns. What we are entrusted with during this time will be handed to Him when we stand before Him and then authority will be given in the world to come.

If you have not been seeing increase with the small (or large) talents you’ve been given then know this: “It’s not too late!” You can begin today to take what you’ve been given and invest it (do business with what you have) to see increase and multiplication. Talents are not only in the form of gifts like public speaking, writing, singing, playing an instrument, etc. (the ones we focus on in the church world) but they are all that the Lord has invested in you— your story, your compassion, your service of “helps,” your relationships, your family, your finances and all of your blessings.

The church needs to unfold the cloth that has hidden the talents given to them and deposit them in ways that will reap increase. It’s time to receive authority so that we can see our nation saved.

We each need to be about our Father’s business and then watch as God comes and announces over you, “Well done! Because you have been faithful with the small I will give you authority over more!”

God is looking for those that He can give authority and influence to. His eyes are watching how we “do Kingdom business.” Jesus understood this and was our example of this,

And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” Luke 2:49

It is time to be about our Father’s business and multiply that which He has entrusted us with.
