God Brings Honor to Who He Created You to Be

Kathi Pelton

Last night I was having a conversation with friends about the power of honoring one another. If there is one thing that I have learned throughout my years of walking with Jesus, it is that He always honors me. He has never treated me according to the flesh but honored who He created me to be and has treated me according to that identity. When He sees me, He sees me through the eyes of honor…this is my true reality.

Many years ago I began a journey of discovering how He sees people. This journey changed everything for me. It was like receiving a pair of glasses that changed my eyes from seeing the distorted dishonor that the enemy puts upon lives to seeing the clear and honoring way that our God views another.

As we begin to see others the way that He sees them, it causes us to treat them with honor. Honor will always lifts up the one who has felt cast down.

When I was 14 years old I was already living out all sorts of evil that years of dishonor had defined in my life with. I am so grateful that a man at my high school saw me the way that Jesus saw me. He treated me with honor and it was those actions that eventually led me to Jesus.

Here are truths about dishonor and honor:

• Dishonor drags a person down where honor lifts them up.

• Dishonor exposes nakedness and honor covers shame.

• Dishonor weakens and honor strengthens

• Dishonor imprisons a man and honor sets him free

• Dishonor establishes a lie and honor restores God’s truth.

• Dishonor divides a man from God and honor reconciles him to God.

There are so many more!

The culture of honor is the Kingdom culture that we must treat all men by. As we honor someone according the image that they were created in we actually begin to call forth “Christ in them”. We honor Christ as we honor others. Honor redefines the way someone sees themselves and gives them courage to live that truth out.

Whether it is a family member or a friend, a stranger on the street or a clerk in a store, a rich man or poor man, a political leader or church leader, a child or the elderly…all need to experience honor. Honor is to be shown even if it is not deserved because that is what Jesus gave to us (and still gives to us).

I pray that the eyes of the God’s people will be fully opened to see what Jesus sees. I pray that the actions of the God’s people will be aligned with the honor of the Kingdom of God that knows that all men are created in the image of Christ. I pray that the mouth of

God’s people would speak words of life and honor over lives that have been defined by dishonor. I pray that you will see yourself with the eyes of honor.

One of the favorite sayings in our church are the words from Hebrews 12:24,

“…the blood of Jesus speaks a better word…”

Let’s speak the better word to all who cross our paths today and may honor be found upon every step you take and every word that you speak. Today I declare upon your life the better word that the blood of Jesus has spoken…

“You were created to be honored and to release honor.”

Amen~

This Is How We Pray For Our Nation To See The Victory

Kathi Pelton

“…for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute.” Luke 21:15

When enemies rise up against you or against those who stand for righteousness; the Lord will fill your mouth with words and wisdom that silence your foes! Many have arisen to stand as enemies against the righteousness of God and His people who stand for righteousness.

We pray for our nation’s leaders that are standing for Biblical truth and justice. “God, fill their mouths with Your utterances and give them wisdom that their opponents cannot resist or refute.”

“Your hand will be lifted up against your adversaries, And all your enemies will be cut off.” Micah 5:9

As we have seen a public display of “those who curse us and send curses against us” arise (though they have always been there); as God’s people we will posture our lives and direct our prayers according to Luke 6:28,

“…bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

We speak and declare blessings of salvation upon all those who have sent curses against God and His people and we pray mercy for them; knowing how much the Lord loves each one of them. This is the desire of the Lord,

“…not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.”

May God open the eyes of the spiritually blind and the ears of the spiritually deaf to see the beauty of His holiness. May judgement fall upon the dark forces that have deceived them and may the people be spared and come to repentance.

In 2 Chronicles 20, God’s people were facing a fierce and vast enemy that sought to displace and destroy them. Together they came before the Lord and cried out for His wisdom and His help. He answered them with these words,

“You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the LORD is with you.”” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:17‬ ‭

When they went out the next morning to face their enemies they announced these words,

“…Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.””

‭‭II Chronicles‬ ‭20:20‬(b)

Then they appointed singers who would began to sing and “praise the beauty of His holiness.” They went out before the enemy army singing,

“Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” II Chronicles‬ ‭20:21

As they began to sing THE LORD SET AN AMBUSH AGAINST THEIR ENEMIES and they were defeated. He filled their mouths with praise and then HE defeated their enemies.

Let us pray, let us praise and let us sing of the beauty of His holiness. Do not be afraid or dismayed as you look upon the enemies who have risen up against the God’s appointed people, for the battle belongs to the Lord!

Amen~~

God Is Singing Over You

Kathi Pelton

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with one line from the song “Reckless Love” repeating again and again in my mind,

“Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me- You have been so, so good to me”

As I heard these words I was taken in the spirit to the place of my infancy and I saw God singing over me. He was singing of His love for me, His desire for me, His plans for me. Though I knew nothing of Him still He was singing over me. Then I was taken to a time before I asked Him into my life and He was there once again, singing over me; singing intercession and singing the words of how He saw me.

Then I heard the words, “I waited for you to cue the music.” As these words were spoken I saw the moment that I surrendered my life to Him as the cue or “queue” to begin to manifest in my life all the words that He had sung over me before I had ever spoken a word to Him. To cue the music is to signal it to begin but to “queue” the music is to “line up” the music, such as we do when we create a playlist on our phones (that is to queue up the music). When I surrendered to Jesus I “queued up” or lined up with the truth of His songs over my life.

Each moment of surrender to His will, His Word, His desires queues the songs that He sings over my life…songs of deliverance— songs of desire— songs of healing— songs of promise— songs of unfailing love. It becomes my life’s playlist and the songs become my reality.

I often awake with songs playing in my mind that I know the Spirit has placed there but I truly never looked at it as “God singing over me.” I more thought of it as a message or a revelation that needed to be unpacked. But He sings over me and He sings over you. Before you ever spoke a word to Him He was singing over you. Your “yes” queues the music to become your story and your reality. Your surrender becomes the landing strip for the songs He sings over you to come to fruition.

The first words I ever heard God say to me (and they were sung) were the words, “I see no stain upon you.” I was 16 years old and didn’t know God and my life was truly “stained by the world” and by an overwhelming sense of worthlessness— I was drunk and alone but the words stopped me in my tracks and breathed hope into my young and broken heart, “I see no stain upon you.” The words stayed with me for two years when finally my brokenness yielded to my surrender and I queued the music to become my reality.

God waits for your cue and then your queue, all the while He continues to sing over you. His song is the invitation and your surrender is the cue to the music to begin to become your reality. Ask Him to open your ears to the words of the songs He sings over you— then respond. Just maybe those songs that get stuck in your head are interpreting the song that He is singing over you?

I encourage you to “cue the music.” and to “queue to music.”

A Vision For The United States of America

Kathi Pelton

As I was having a conversation with another prophetic voice about “Jesus as our plumb line”, I was taken into a vision for our nation.

Vision:

I saw a plumb line that was hanging from heaven over the United States of America. To the left of the plumb line was a camp of people that were zealously trumpeting their demands that were humanistic and contrary to Biblical truth. To the right of the plumb line was another camp of people that were equally zealous about their demand for religious rights and conservative standards and yet they were trumpeting their “cause” in the name of Christ but not from the love of Christ. In the center was the plumb line that aligns all with perfect love and truth…Jesus.

The left and the right had set up camps of “for and against”. They were both eating the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil but the plumb line of Christ stood as the “Tree of Life”.

As I was watching this vision the plumb line suddenly turned into a carpenter’s chalkline. I saw the chalkline snap to mark a line of truth that would allow for a straight and righteous cut to be made that is aligned with Jesus the plumb line. It was a standard being set by the Spirit of the Lord.

When this happened the scene immediately changed and I was looking at the scene of when Jesus was with the women who was caught in adultery and those who were about to stone her. I saw Jesus as the plumb line in this scene as He sat between two opposing opinions and as He spoke the words, “He without sin cast the first stone.” As He spoke these words I heard the snap of the chalkline that set the standard and caused all flesh to humble themselves to His wisdom and perfect love. Truth and unfailing love brought forth wisdom, justice, mercy and repentance to those with the stones as well as to the woman caught in sin.

Jesus is marking our nation with a line that makes clear His standard. His standard will cut through the soul to make way for the Spirit of the Lord. The soulish justice of men on both the left and the right will be exposed as flesh and the Lord’s standard of justice will bring life and the Spirit of Truth.

We must guard our hearts from the zeal of the soul that takes sides or creates camps. We must only have a zeal for Christ and His standard that brings life, unity and oneness with God. We must not continue eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil but choose to eat from the Tree of Life. The knowledge of good and evil does not produce life for it lacks perfect love and mercy; only bringing the judgements of men.

God is marking our nation with a line that brings life and not death, unity and not division, truth rather than opinion. This chalkline will make a clear and precise cut in our nation that will be filled with the mercy of the Lord as He declares over us, “Mercy triumphs over judgement!”

Your “Yes” Releases Everything That You Need

Kathi Pelton

In what I would consider a “suddenly”, two of our sons (one in New York and one in California) heard the Lord speak to them that it was time to move to where we live and be a part of our ministry here. Neither spoke to the other one about it and both waited for confirmation before “acting in it”. As they waited, nothing seemed to happen that brought the confirmation that they sought. Then the Spirit spoke to each of them separately and said, “Your yes is what is needed.”

Both boys gave the Lord their “yes” to the Lord in faith. We are now seeing that their “yes” was the trip wire for the confirmations to open up and the provisions to begin to come in.

I am sharing this because this is an example of my life as well. Many times throughout my life God has asked me to do something that “in the natural” had such crazy risk attached to it that it caused people who do not understand faith to question our sanity. We’ve said yes to moving to other countries and states with nothing but the word of the Lord. Our “yes” became the beginning of the shaking of the ground that crumbled the mountains that stood in our way. Our “yes” became like the staff of Moses that parted the Red Sea before us; keeping us from advancing.

Is the Lord asking something of you that seems impossible and crazy to those looking on? Even crazy to all of your natural understanding? If so, don’t wait for the sea to part to move forward but extend your “yes” that will cause the waters to stand up so that you can pass through.

Strengthen yourself and your loved ones with the stories and testimonies of how God has moved on behalf of His people as they said, “Yes” in days gone by. The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophesy; so let His testimony prophesy over your steps ahead. Recount His faithfulness aloud because it will strengthen you as you move in faith. Your story, that is about to unfold, will become the testimony for someone else in the days to come.

Say YES! Obedience to His request is your key to the door that stands before you. Waiting for the door to open before allowing your key of “yes” to be inserted will only serve to delay you from entering in. Your yes will be the release of everything that you need. As you step forward each step will release the provision and strength for what you need. Let the “fear of the Lord” become greater than the fear of the journey or the fear of the unknown. He is faithful and He has gone before you.

Let the peace of God guard your heart and mind as you give your yes to the One who is worthy of all of you.

You are in a “yes” moment! Your yes is the key that opens doors before you. We say YES to you Jesus!

It’s Time To Receive Abundant Life

Kathi Pelton

Those who know me well know that 10:10 are special numbers to me. A few years back the Lord spoke them over my husband and I when we moved to Oregon. They represent a couple of different things to us but mostly the wonderful verse in John 10:10,

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”

We had gone through a number of years that it felt like all that we were experiencing was the thief (we were robbed, our house burned, deaths, accusations…you name it!). Then, suddenly life returned and it returned with an abundance of peace, joy and love. It was a 10:10 moment that has carried on with abundance in our hearts since that time.

When I saw today’s date (10/01) I saw a vision of a sudden “turnaround” for many of you that have faced a long season of experiencing the “thief”. The “01” turned around and became a “10” and before my eyes were the numbers 10/10 illuminating with light in a celebratory display.

You shall have life, enjoy life and it will overflow with abundance! As you have chosen Jesus through the dark season that had been filled with trials, now you will receive His promise of life and all of His benefits with great fullness and abundance.

Declare the overflow! It is yours to take! Declare the abundance! It is His to give to you! Declare the fullness! It is His portion for you! And declare double restoration!!! Because that is who He is!

Instead of your shame you will have a double portion; And instead of humiliation your people will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore in their land they will possess double; Everlasting joy will be theirs.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:7

Your abundant harvest is upon you!

Christmas Has Come Early

This new book by Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton is a great gift for for friends and family as we approach December. Order now and give as gifts before December 1st.

There truly is a “reason for the season,” and it has nothing to do with gifts, reindeer, shopping, or chocolate (well, maybe chocolate). But it is easy for us to forget that transcendent purpose as we find ourselves caught up in the materialistic maelstrom that is the modern cultural event known as Christmas. As the end of the year approaches, instead of experiencing an invitation into deeper devotion and wonder and excitement, we find ourselves wondering when, exactly, we seem to have swallowed a lump of coal. If you have ever considered changing your name to Ebenezer for the month of December, then this is for you. Join Jeffrey and Kathi Pelton as they walk through the weeks leading to the Big Day in a winsome and encouraging journey of devotion and discovery, fueled by the lyrics of songs you know–or at least, think you know.

Order through Amazon Books or if you would like a signed copy send a donation of $25 to our ministry with a note attached saying, “Sound of Christmas- signed copy”

The Enemy’s Identity Theft and God’s Identity Restoration

Kathi Pelton

For anyone who is not aware that there is a war over good and evil, over what is pure and what is defiled, over light and darkness; for those of us living in the United States we have a living illustration as we view a “political war” taking place before our eyes. Although this article will not be about that particular war or my discernment on what is happening, I do want you to be aware that there is a war that we cannot ignore.

There is a war over your identity. The enemy falsely began accusing you as soon as you were old enough to understand having beliefs or thoughts about your value. My five year old grandson already understands this; he is now in kindergarten and already only wants to wear “cool” clothes (Nike is his “cool” of choice because of the swoosh) and he wants his hair done the “cool” way. Why? Because the enemy’s voice (through thoughts, through advertisements and through peers) has already caused a five year old to be self-conscious of the reality that he may not be good enough or acceptable enough before “men” apart from an outward display that conforms to the demanding human eyes that are watching.

If the enemy can slander you at a young age (a process he is highly skilled in) by casting doubt and negative self-image upon you then he can divide you from who God created you to be. Satan’s greatest fear is that you become aligned with God and His thoughts toward you, because if you do then nothing can stop you. The fear of man comes from an identity that has been divided from its divine design. Rather than living from a place of confidence and assurance before God, man begins to live to impress man which always demands more performance and perfection.

The war over all that Jesus shed His blood for is very real. Though the enemy knows that he has already been defeated, he is not going down without taking as many as he can down with him. He isn’t satisfied with a few; he wants an entire generation! He is after the identity of our children and our children’s children. It is the ultimate crime of “identity theft”!

If suddenly every person on our US Senate Judiciary Committee had a revelation of who Jesus is and who God created them to be, there would be no question and no war because no one would feel the need to lie, to divide, or to accuse. The individuals would see the beauty of Christ in one another and in His image in their own lives. They would come into unity and oneness with God and each other and true justice would prevail; bringing peace and harmony.

The war is over identity…God’s true identity (which is continually being misrepresented), over your divine identity that reveals Christ, over your children’s identity that brings a generational blessing, and over the identity of all of creation….which groans and waits for the revelation of God’s sons and daughters.

I call forth God’s identity protection and identity revelation over your life and the lives of your children. I call forth the revelation of the true nature, character and identity of God. I call forth the original intent (identity) in the heart of God over our nation and over the nations of the world. May God arise and divide the thief from your life and release upon you the fullness of the Giver of abundant life (John 10:10). I declare abundant life over you and our land!

Greater Is He That Is In You

Kathi Pelton

For those who woke up today feeling defeated:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling sick:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling grief:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling alone:

Greater is He that is in you!

For those who woke up today feeling afraid:

Greater is He that is in you!

Jesus does not change even in the midst of fear, pain or sorrow. The world is ever shifting and always changing but “Greater is He” who never changes.

No matter what you woke up today feeling…within you is one that is greater than anything that you are facing. His love is greater, His power is greater, His compassion is greater, His grace is greater and His plans for you are greater.

His thoughts toward you outnumber the grains of sand and those thoughts never change. They are endless and infinite and good! His thoughts are perfect and His ways are perfect…higher and greater than our thoughts about ourselves or our lives.

His ability and power to save you and deliver you from all that is bigger than you is greater than what is standing against you. His compassion reaches farther than your pain and His mercy triumphs over judgements.

He is greater and He is within you! What is bigger than you is still not greater than Him! He will show His greatness in your life! Trust Him.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For my readers: I heard the words “Mercy is falling this Fall”. The Lord is giving great mercy upon those who need financial mercies and miracles at this time. I saw finances falling like the fall leaves. I am agreeing in prayer for this mercy to fall down upon each of you! Amen-
