I Saw a Great Washing and Refreshing

By Kathi Pelton

As we all know 2020 was a year of extremes. Many experienced extreme losses and at the same time many in the Church experienced extreme transformations. But, without a doubt, all of us were subject to the deep darkness of evil that was revealed and vile accusations that came from the evil one.

I saw a picture this morning of a woman who was returning from a long and treacherous hike in the wilderness during the winter months. She had scaled mountains, walked through deep ravines, crossed valleys and climbed over obstacles that blocked her way. She was muddy, weary but also so grateful for all that she had experienced, learned and overcome from the journey.

Then, in this vision, the Lord send angels to attend to her. First they removed her muddy boots and outer garments, then they removed the backpack off of her back. Then they ushered her into a warm home with a cozy fire burning. In this room there was a tub filled with steaming water and the rest of her garments were removed. She stepped into this warm tub of clear water and then the angels began to pour warm, clear water over her head. As the water ran down over her, it washed away all the residue from the long journey she had taken. The angels washed her hair, her face, her hands, her feet until they were washed clean. Then they poured oil over her to anoint her. This oil touched her heart and mind and softened it to keep it tender and sensitive (for she had seen things and experienced things on the journey that sought to harden her heart). Then they brought soft, white linens to clothe her in; including what looked like a towel or turban for her head. All of these garments were white but around the edges (sleeves, neck, ends and surrounding the towel/turban) were many words sewn in gold thread. As I looked closer I realized that they were scriptures from the Bible.

One of the scriptures was from Ephesians 5:26-27,

“…to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word. He did this to present the church to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and blameless.”

Another was from John 15,

“You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.” (vs. 3)
‭‭ ““I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him produces much fruit, because you can do nothing without Me.” (vs. 5)

There was also the verses from Hebrews 4:12-13,

“For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the ideas and thoughts of the heart. No creature is hidden from Him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account.”

There were more but those were the three that I am aware of. I found it so beautiful that the first scripture in Ephesians is from the chapter regarding how a husband should treat his wife. Our Bridegroom, Jesus, was doing just that for his bride in this vision. He was cleansing her by the washing of water by the word. Then he was clothing her in garments that represent purity, fruitfulness, unity and the sword of his authority.

I believe that 2021 is beginning with a washing of his bride. All of the residue from the long journey of the past year is being washed away. We are being anointed with oil and we are being clothed in purity, oneness and the authority of his Word!

The Word of God is your sword and shield. More than any other time, this year you will need to be equipped with his Word as your weapon and protection. You must clothe yourself in the Word of God and saturating your mind in his Word (wearing it like a turban). His Word will cleanse you! In a year of even greater exposures; his Word will clothe you, cover your nakedness and keep you pure. His word will wash you and keep you joined to the true Vine so that you will produce fruit.

His Word will be a tent or canopy over your life, your family and your home (even your ministry or business). It will be warmth, water and fire for you. Begin each day by reading his Word and praying his Word over all that pertains to you. Declare it over your home, your city, your nation, and over all who sit in seats of authority. For his Word is a two edged sword that will separate the holy from the profane.

I heard the words, “My Word is your key to success and fruitfulness! My Word gives victory and triumph to all that it touches. My Word keeps you pure and gives you peace. My Word is your authority and it brings heaven to earth.”
‭‭
Let us saturate our lives and this year with the water of his Word!

It Is Time to Put On the Garments of Praise

By Kathi Pelton

“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3

2020 has been very difficult for many. Though God has come as light in the darkness for those who take refuge in him, it does not change the fact that all of the world, those who fear the Lord and those who do not, have been effected by all that has taken place in 2020.

We have all watched dear friends lose loved ones unexpectedly, lose jobs, lose homes, lose businesses…or maybe it is YOU who have lost one or one of these things this year. There is no shame in grieving. Grief does not reflect your faith or your trust in God. It merely says, “I have loved someone that I can no longer share my life with.” or “I labored for something that I believed in and it is no more.” There is grief that comes with losses and God asks us to grieve with those who grieve. And so we do!

Even as we grieve with those who grieve, it is right to put on “garments of praise” (even in the midst of loss or experiencing compassion on those who have lost). We have all lost something, even if it is just our rights and freedom to interact with friends or to enjoy looking into another’s face to see them smile. Though we have been forced to wear a mask on our physical body that reminds us all of this global pandemic, it is time to purposely and intentionally put on a spiritual garment that is called “praise!”

We have an eternal hope that gives us reason for praise in every season and circumstance. I have had seasons in my life of grief where I praised through the tears and it became of garment of peace in the midst of a storm. Praise became my refuge and fortress that took me above what my eyes could see.

Isaiah 61 goes on to say this,

Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”

Today these words from Isaiah 61 rang like a bell of triumph in my spirit. It was like an announcement from angelic hosts calling us to put on garments of praise because the faithfulness of the Lord is our reward and his everlasting covenant will be made known among the nations!

I had a vision of God’s people putting on the garments of praise and as they did, God supernaturally clothed them with heavenly garments of peace and favor that broke off heaviness and despair. This garment of peace was tangible to the point of giving supernatural strength to those who have grown weary. The garment of favor attracted both heaven and earth; bringing forth prosperity that touched every area imaginable.

It is time to let the words that conclude Isaiah 61 pour out of our mouths like a river of praise,

“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.”

Clothe yourself with garments of praise and watch what happens in the days to come!

Awe and Wonder Will Appear in the Darkness

By Kathi Pelton

As most of you know, on December 21,2020— on the darkest day of the year (first day of winter: shortest daylight of the year), around the globe we will see the night sky lit up with what looks like a Christmas star. In reality it will be the first time in 800 years that Jupiter and Saturn meet together to create “light in the darkness” or a “Christmas star.”

Two months ago the Lord began speaking to me about a “meeting” (joining or kiss) that would take place after the conclusion of Hanukkah. I shared it with some but most people’s minds were on the election and not on what would happen in December. The Lord told me that there would be a manifestation of Psalm 85:10 that would occur,

Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.

The meaning of the name Jupiter is “The Supreme God” and the meaning of the name Saturn is “The God of the Harvest”! In the midst of darkness they will meet together and kiss the earth with a sign of light! I realize that these name meanings were based on mythology and Greek gods but I also understand that God created these planets and I believe that their names actually point to our true “Supreme God” and “God of the Harvest” (capital “G” God— not small “g” god).

What awe and wonder we will see and encounter! Our Supreme God will kiss the harvest and many will know that He alone is God. This may just be the beginning of the great harvest that we have all prayed for and awaited.

12/21 will mark a great turnaround and alignment where love and faithfulness, righteousness and peace meet together and kiss creation! 2020 may have been the threshold of entering the greatest harvest the world has ever seen as light penetrates darkness. Hearts were aligned, His people met together in the midst of great separation, His remnant church was awakened and bought pure oil for her lamp. The global Ecclesia declared Jesus as King throughout the world as one bride and one body joined with one God! What a glorious sight as heaven and earth have aligned. Let earth receive her King!

God Will Far Exceed Your Dreams and Plans

By Kathi Pelton

I was thinking about how often people day dream of plans that are being made for a special day. We rehearse them in our minds, picture the moments that will make beautiful memories and even invite others into those dreams. I have been a daydreamer (and night dreamer) since I was a little girl and I would get lost in that place where hopes and dreams are played out with childlike wonder. Yet, often in this world (not always but often) they don’t quite reach the height of our expectations and desires. That is just part of life here on earth. Weather happens, sickness happens, losses happen, disagreements happen and now even pandemics happen. We learn to be grateful for what we have even if at times these moments fall short of what we dreamed.

As I was pondering these thoughts today (while dreaming about some upcoming holiday plans), I heard the Lord so excitedly proclaim to me, “Oh Honey, heaven will not fall short of your dreams— it will exceed your thoughts and dreams so immensely that you may just stop and stare in wonder for the first 10,000 years!” Then he said, “Did you know that every disappointment and dream that fell short on earth will be restored to you in heaven?”

Immediately I saw a vision of where the “things of earth” had disrupted precious plans and moments. I saw weddings that didn’t happen due to this pandemic, losses that came unexpectedly, times where rain poured upon your “parade”, pain stole your joy, babies that never made it into their mommies arms and so many other things. But they will all be restored! Your plans and dreams were not in vain! Heaven has held all of these things in it’s timeless and redemptive protection. Every tear will be washed away, all pain will cease and the ability to experience a never ending joy (that can never be obtained on earth) will be yours— and yours for all eternity.

Nothing is lost in Christ! It all gains in worth, beauty and value. We will never have to experience “living with loss” or “praising through the storms” again. The closer we get to Jesus, the more we gain perspective of the glory set before us. Our race here on earth can be much less than “perfect” but the One who purchased our entrance to eternal love and joy is at the finish line just waiting to embrace us!

I do find that even this short walk here on earth, with Jesus as my Savior, has surely exceeded my hopes and expectations— even in the midst of imperfect executions of plans or dreams. He still continuously surprises me with beauty that takes my breath away…imperfect beauty but beauty nonetheless. The perfect will come!

So, if your dreams have not quite gone according to plans or if you have had more than your share of losses— know this, he is holding all that appeared lost or stolen in his hands and they will not disappoint! Earthly redemption will not even compare to the redemption we will receive when we enter the place that he has been building for us since before time began.

Begin to dream higher and hope beyond this life. You will not be disappointed!

Time To Rule and Time To Occupy!

By Kathi Pelton

“There are times for the work of warfare and times for the work of ruling— now is the time for ruling.” –Larry Sparks

America— we prayed, we struck the ground, we gained the spiritual victory and now we must occupy that ground.

The government of God must now sit in the seats of authority given to us in Christ Jesus. When He ascended to His throne— we ascended into a place of authority with Him. Now we must occupy those seats and exercise our spiritual authority on earth as it is in Heaven!

This is not a time to forfeit the ground gained through assignments of “emotional defeat” (which leads to a deep physical weariness) but rather it is time to sit in the seats of victory that were gained prior to the U.S. election. God’s government has been called into session for such a time as this. The scepter has been extended— it is time to decree, time to exercise authority and time to rule from the seat of spiritual authority.

There is a spiritual “United Nations” that has gathered together to rule and reign with Christ Jesus. America is no longer standing alone but rather we stand as one with the Ecclesia of the nations of the world to decree righteousness, justice and liberty in Jesus. Together we will raise the standard of the Lord over America and over the nations. We will occupy the land that we have warred for!

Take your seats, sons of God! Touch the scepter and release the decree that delivers our nation and the nations of the world.

Esther said, “If it please the king, and if I have found favor with him, and if he thinks it is right, and if I am pleasing to him, let there be a decree that reverses the orders of Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite, who ordered that Jews throughout all the king’s provinces should be destroyed. For how can I endure to see my people and my family slaughtered and destroyed?” Esther 8:5-6

We decree:

If it pleases our King, and we have found favor in your sight, if you find it right and we are pleasing to you— let there be a decree that reverses the orders of the evil one— the Haman spirit— that has ordered the destruction of our people and of Zion. He has ordered the destruction of righteous laws and leadership in our nation. How can we endure to see our people and families slaughtered and destroyed? Decree our deliverance, King Jesus!

Just as King Xerxes responded favorably to Esther, so will our God respond to us— His bride. Esther risked everything to approach the king (without an invitation) but we have not only been invited to approach Him but invited to sit with Him and reign with Him.

We are in a “for such a time as this” point in history. It is time to occupy and decree!

Heavenly Chambers are Opening Up

By Kathi Pelton

During a time of worship I heard the Lord say to me,

“I’m opening up chambers of revelation. These heavenly rooms are open to My sons and daughters.”

I understood that within these chambers were mysteries, wisdom, supplies and experiences that would be impossible to understand before this time. Within them His people will experience the “more than they can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20)”.

I sense that the opening of these chambers will reveal mysteries that we have not understood before this time. These chambers were created for this kairos time on earth.

The chambers are now open; rooms of healing, rooms where disorder comes into order, rooms filled with blueprints for inventions, rooms with new sounds and new songs, governmental rooms, war rooms with strategic plans and orders, revelation rooms and rooms where intimacy releases secrets that will be entrusted to the bride…creation rooms. Lives will change within these chambers.

I saw a room that I can only describe as a “time chamber”. Within this chamber words that had been spoken in past times were now words. I saw callings, mantels and assignments that were not fulfilled or lived out by lives that had passed awaiting for “such a time as this”. As God’s people entered this chamber these could be brought forth and for lack of a better word, re-activated. Old things were like fresh manna within this room. There is no “past” in this room; only NOW or Kairos time.

“The One who builds His upper chambers in the heavens And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth, He who calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the face of the earth, The LORD is His name.” Amos 9:6

We have access to these new Heavenly upper chambers. Creation continues to expand in these chambers and what is contained within these rooms can be brought to earth.

“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” Psalm‬ ‭27:4‬ ‭

Gaze on His beauty, seek His wisdom and ask Him to take you to these new chambers.

A Powerful Dream of Fire and Light

By Kathi Pelton

I woke up out of a dream this morning that immediately became a revelation. Rather than share all the details of the dream (many were symbolic)— I will share with you the revelation that came forth from it.

The Lord showed me a great fire that has been sent by His hand upon the Church. This fire has been sent to refine, purify and burn away the “underbrush” from our lives. It has been and continues to be a necessary fire so that His people are prepared to walk in the authority of a royal priesthood. This is a holy preparation that is removing compromises that have diluted our authority and power. It is preparing us to be agents of change and ambassadors of Christ that walk in spiritual and governmental authority to decree and establish all that He asks us.

As I saw this fire, I knew that it that could only be contained by the hand of the Lord and the completion of the work of refinement in our lives. There is a yielding to this fire that changes us and raises the standard of the fear of the Lord in our lives.

Then I saw these widespread fires coming together into one single fire; it appeared more like a massive single flame. When this happened I saw something come out of Heaven that had the appearance of a clear “glass chimney”; such as you would put upon an oil light or lantern. As this glass chimney came down upon this single flame (which was birthed from the Refiner’s fire) and fully encircled it- suddenly, it was a glorious lamp or light to the whole world.

As this happened I heard the words, “Now is the time. This is the new beginning.”

As I shared this dream and visionary encounter with a group of international leaders, there was agreement that we are in a time of great refinement— even discipline. The Lord disciples those that He loves. Just as a parent disciplines their child because they love them and want to see them walk in an upright manner, in integrity and in godly character— so the Lord disciplines His sons and daughters so that we might be entrusted through the refinement of our actions, integrity and character to carry spiritual authority that changes earthly things.

One person shared that this refinement is not merely dealing with issues of “right and wrong” but it is narrowing the flexibility in what the Lord is permitting and what He no longer is allowing. More like a standard being raised. Of course a refining fire will deal with blatant sin and compromise of truth but this is touching many leaders to “put away childish things” and to walk in a way worthy of our call.

The Lord has sent this fire because He loves us. He is disciplining us because He has a great call for us to walk in. He is preparing us so that we can be entrusted with that call. And, He is drawing us together to produce one holy flame that He can put this glass chimney upon for the sake of His Ecclesia being the “light on a hill”; a bright light in the time of gross darkness. We will emerge as His lamp.

If you are facing refinement then know this— you are not alone. Yield to His fire and let it purify your heart and your life. Allow it to burn away all compromise and concessions that lead to compromises. These may not be “wrong” things as much as things that are not aligned with the call of God upon your life or the standard that He is calling you to live in.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭

It’s Time to Bring Down Heaven to Earth

By Kathi Pelton

Last night I had a brief, yet profound (and completely unexpected), encounter during a time of worship. Suddenly, I found myself in the third heaven and I was looking out upon the “Crystal Sea” or “Sea of Glass” that is before the throne. I have never seen anything like this before. The sapphire blue was breathtaking and endless; and the sky (horizon) was like fire and reflected His eyes. The stillness upon this sea was far beyond “the lack of a storm or waves”- it was a sovereign stillness and peace that carried great power that saturation the entire atmosphere. It was as if a great “weightiness” was upon the peace— a weighty peace.

As I stood there, looking out upon it, Lord asked me, “Would you like to walk upon it?” He took my hand (though I never saw His face— only heard His voice and felt His hand take mine) and He walked me out a short distance upon this crystal sea of glass. I don’t know how to describe what I saw but over this immense sea the sky had what I can only describe as both the sunrise and sunset happening simultaneously. Actually all of the colors from the beginning to end of morning and evening somehow were intermingled and the sea and sky reflected it all. I knew that His face was the source of these colors and that all of heaven reflected His image, His power, and His beauty. The weight of peace and rest on this sea and in this place was an experience I will never forget. It was the most powerful stillness I’ve ever encountered and yet it was such a brief moment that I was there.

I wanted to share this with you because of what happened next. As I was taking in this peace and beauty the Lord said to me, “Did you know that you can bring this peace from heaven down to earth?”

After He spoke those words, I was immediately back in the room in Washington DC where we were worshiping and praying. I knew that we had the authority to take this weighty peace and see it come into the earthly realm.

We have received many warnings that when President Trump announces the Supreme Court nominee that it will be like a civil war in our streets and nation. But as many of us have prayed, we’ve felt peace that makes no sense in the midst of warnings. I felt that God was giving us permission to ask for the peace that resides in heaven (coming from His throne) to come upon Washington DC, upon our nation, and upon our households. It is like a blanket of peace that comes down to intercept the plans of the enemy.

It reminded me of how people with anxiety disorders will use a “weighted blanket” to calm them. This was like a heavenly weighted blanket that would bring peace and rest to the anxieties and fears that produce anger and violence. It holds supernatural peace and rest that calms the chaos.

From this encounter I feel that we can all begin to bring heaven to earth for the sake of our nations, for our households, for our individual lives. All sin that has been brought in repentance to Jesus, is cleansed by His blood and put under the “sea of forgetfulness.” Where there is absence of sin there is manifest peace and order. The Lord has put our sin into the sea of forgetfulness and given us this “sea of glass” (peace, rest, and stillness) in it’s place.

A remnant of His people have been repenting on behalf of the United States and bringing our sins before the throne of God to be washed by the blood of Jesus. Our sins are being thrown into the sea of forgetfulness and a “sea of glass”— His peace and presence is being offered in its place.

I don’t know how this will manifest on earth— possibly it will bring a distinction by resting on His Ecclesia (making us a refuge) or maybe it will stop the chaos and violence that the enemy is stirring up in our streets and cities? I only know that Jesus said, “You can bring this down to earth.”

I don’t want to interpret the full meaning but I do want to bring the experience to you so that you can enter in and add your faith to it. You can declare and ascend by the power of the Spirit in order to bring back this sovereign and weighty peace.

On earth as it is in Heaven!
