The Beauty of Tears Offered As Praisek

Kathi Pelton

Last night my husband and I sat with four young people that we love deeply. A couple of them were experiencing profound pain, so we put aside the night’s “agenda” and we sat with them, held their hands, held them and then all six of us began to weep together. We wept with deep intercession and tender love. Jesus was so present there weeping with us.

Then the young man began began to offer his pain as praise declaring, “You are worthy of my praise in the midst of pain.” His tears became drops of worship like the costly perfume offered over the feet of Jesus by Mary. The pain in the room was so real but the praise offered in the midst of the pain released a sweet aroma that filled the room with His presence and beauty.

We were all undone as we entered into the hope and the offering of praise in the face of pain.

Romans 12:15 says,

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”

We have become well-acquainted with both weeping and rejoicing with the ones that we love. We know that pain lasts a night but “joy comes in the morning.” Sometimes the nights are long but surely morning will come and then together we will rejoice.

All too often we are quick to try to “cheer someone up” rather than merely sit with them while they let their tears flow. What if we stopped and wept with them with no answers or words? If we would do this we would probably experience what we witnessed last night: a time where in the midst of pain the alabaster jar is broken and the costly perfume of praise that was formed in the pain is poured out upon His feet. Each one of us entered into the weeping and then received the anointing of the perfume that was released.

The words, “Nothing is wasted, nothing is wasted…” were whispered through the tears and I want you to know: your pain is not wasted, your tears aren’t falling upon the ground but rather upon His feet. Not one is wasted.

Jesus wept!

He weeps with you and turns the tears and pain offered as praise into an oil that anoints His feet and fills the atmosphere with the sweetest and most costly fragrance. Because the offering out of pain is far more costly.

For those who are in a “night of weeping”—let it flow out until it intermingles with His presence where it will becomes a sacrifice of praise that fills the room. It is so beautiful.

The Lord Has Spoken. It Is Vindication Time!

Kathi Pelton

I heard the Lord announce today,

“It’s vindication time!”

The enemy has been served notice and though he is scrambling to hold his ground, he will not prevail! The Lord has spoken!

This vindication will transcend what we see; it refutes the evidence before us that currently points to defeat. God will overturn the tables of evil and vindicate personal lives, as well as national issues. Those who have walked in integrity and not turned from truth will now see vindication come.

I was recently sitting with a couple who had prayed for vindication regarding areas of their lives that the enemy had ravaged, and I kept hearing the Lord say, “I have taken up their cause and I will vindicate them!” These words have come back to me today and are going out to you.

You have cried out like the Psalmist,

“Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.” Psalm 26:1

And soon you will shout out like Jeremiah,

“The LORD has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion the work of the LORD our God!” Jeremiah 51:10

This vindication will spread over nations and over people groups because the remnant of God’s people have humbled themselves before the Lord. They have prayed and put their trust in the Lord alone. Now, as in the days of King Hezekiah, we will see God rescue us and the kingdoms of the earth will see that He alone is God!

“Now, O Lord our God, rescue us from his power; then all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you alone, O Lord, are God.” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:19‬ ‭

God will vindicate those whom He has place in positions of authority for such a time as this. He will vindicate the unborn, He will vindicate the fatherless, He will vindicate those who have been falsely accused, and He will vindicate those who have been afflicted and oppressed!

Declare His vindication over your life. Thank Him even now for His full vindication because He has spoken, therefore it is so! Rejoice even now for His gavel has come down and declared your recompense.

Those who have been barren—you will be as Rachel and be found fruitful!

“Then Rachel said, ‘God has vindicated me, and has indeed heard my voice and has given me a son.’ Therefore she named him Dan.” Genesis 30:6

The Hebrew meaning of Dan is “his judgement.” God is rendering His verdict on your behalf and is vindicating you!

Watch in 2019–and beyond—what God does throughout the nations! Watch Japan, watch the United States, watch Egypt, watch Brazil, and watch some of the most oppressive places suddenly turn because a remnant has prayed and trusted in God alone!

This vindication will shift financial structures and cause “dirty money” to turn into pure gold as it is placed in the hands of the righteous. Debts will be paid off and a time of jubilee will occur. Shifts will take place that dispossess strongholds held by the enemy and suddenly the Lord’s Kingdom will come and be established in the most unlikely places. Then, even the media will call it a miracle!

It’s time to dance because it has been announced! This is not a time of “wait and see” but it is a time of rejoicing in our King, for He has spoken!

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, “’The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.’” Psalm 35:27

HE CRIES JUSTICE

I was looking at our savior’s name this morning and out of the letters within His name, Jesus Christ, came forth three separate words:

HE CRIES JUSTICE

He cries justice over every injustice! Today, let us join His cry and cry out for justice for the unborn. The world’s future sons and daughters and history makers are being extinguished. Cry mercy and cry for justice.

Join in with us and many voices as we become a voice for the voiceless over the next 50 days. To follow this prayer initiative for the unborn go to. https://www.facebook.com/nateandchristy/

You can be a voice that CRIES JUSTICE and mercy!

From Hope Deferred to Desire Fulfilled

By Kathi Pelton

It was August of 1987 I was jolted out of a dream—where my greatest desire had been fulfilled—back into the reality of my constant state of hope deferred. In the dream I held my baby daughter. It hadn’t felt like a typical dream; It seemed I had actually been taken somewhere and held my desire fulfilled for the very first time. I had never felt such love or beheld such beauty. When I awoke it was as if she was torn from my arms, and deep waves of grief flooded my soul.  

 

My husband and I had been trying to conceive a baby for years with no success. We had gone through all the medical tests and the problem was with me. I had been going through fertility treatments for over two years at that point, with no sign of improvement. I’d often find myself wondering why so many women who didn’t want their babies or who considered them “disposable” could conceive but my husband and I, who ached for a baby, were left barren. I knew God had not abandoned us but I did not see His plan in this. 

 

Four months after my beautiful dream, we received a call from a pastor who had recently counseled a fifteen-year-old mother; four months earlier she had given birth prematurely to a little girl and this mother wanted to give her up for adoption. The pastor had heard that we wanted a baby but were unable to conceive, and the Lord put it on his heart to call us and ask if we were interested in adopting this little girl. 

 

We were overwhelmed with excitement and immediately said “yes!” Although it took nine months from the day of that phone call to walk out the miraculous story of getting our daughter, not only did we get to bring her home just before her first birthday, but I was four months pregnant when we did! We found out that she was born the same month I had the dream of holding my baby daughter, and the name that her young birth mother gave her meant “longed for” or “desired one.”

 

Now, thirty years later, I am watching our youngest daughter and her husband face the same pain. After years of trying to conceive a child they are in that painful grip of hope deferred. I see the pain in their eyes and the helpless struggle that her husband feels to comfort his wife as she silently aches inside. As her mom, I keenly understand the pain, the constant ache, and the many thoughts of “Why?”

 

The beauty of my story of adoption and the pain of my daughter’s journey of hope deferred made the recent news of the late-term abortion bill in New York State that much more of a sting. The issue has been before us for decades, but for whatever reason this particular ruling has acted as a tripwire that woke many out of the spiritual stupor of prayerlessness. It ignited a burning desire to see this horrific, defiling waste of life stop. 

 

As I prayed the Lord showed me that the church has been in a continuous “ebb and flow” of prayer regarding the issue of abortion. With every ebb the enemy would take that time to advance his agenda to kill the sons and daughters of tomorrow. His deceptions and lies would advance his cause to rob God, and rob the world, of the very inheritance the Son died for. Each year nearly sixty million abortions occur worldwide. Sixty million! 

 

If that fifteen-year-old girl had given into the “ease” of solving her unwanted pregnancy through abortion, our daughter would not exist. That beautiful baby that fulfilled my greatest longing would have been merely a statistic that only our God truly grieved for. 

 

Most abortions are not performed on teens, but rather women in their young twenties. If only they knew that what they carried in their wombs could fill the arms of a couple that longed to cherish and love a son or daughter! If only they understood that even before this child’s conception, God dreamed of this life, made plans for this life, and knew this life  intimately. 

 

If only we, as His people, had stopped to pray. 

 

Something has happened, and it has awakened the church and awakened women to rise up and fight for these little lives that cannot fight for themselves. Their mothers have been blinded and deceived by the enemy of God, the deceiver who has written a different narrative telling our culture that a life is not a life until it is outside of the womb. God forgive us for our prayerlessness and for not facing the evil giant called abortion. 

 

Together we are now going as one, in the power of His might and the name of His Son, to face this giant until it is defeated. No more ebb and flow, but rather a continuous flow of resurrection power coming from those who have received LIFE!  May the word adoption replace abortion and may hope deferred be replaced by desires fulfilled. 

Choose life!

Love Never Fails

Kathi Pelton

My husband and I have the high honor of being the pastors of the young adults at our local church. Though we have traveled around the world and been a part of global initiatives, serving this group of young adults and watching them learn to walk in love may be one of the highest calls we have walked in.

Recently some of the young women in our group came to us and began to share with deep vulnerability and transparency regarding some of the ways that they have experienced, and even been a part of, areas that violate the description of love in 1 Corinthians 13. They shared how even within the family of God they often have dealt with jealousy and competition. This violation of love has greatly impacted their lives as they were both recipient and perpetrators of this spirit that comes to divide friends and family. These young women decided that they will no longer just tolerate this in their lives or the lives of their friends so together they are humbling themselves before the Lord and one another to shed light on the areas that have violated love.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭

The enemy knows that LOVE NEVER FAILS therefore he most effectively will target the souls of men (and women) in order to provoke them to embrace thoughts and action that go against God’s love.

Jealousy creates an “instant win” for the enemy, pride aligns the heart with rebellion, demanding your own way divides intimate friends, keeping a record of wrongs fortifies unforgiveness and the list goes on!

But love…love never fails! We must press in and ask the Spirit of the Lord to search our hearts and remove every alignment with attributes and actions that violate love. Within each one of us there are blind spots and areas in our hearts that need greater alignment with the love that God has shown us.

This is a prayer that we can all say that will yield our hearts to the work of the Spirit and uncover the places in our hearts that allow the enemy to bring defeat by violating love.

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

I long for His people to know and live in the beauty of a love that never fails. We have that in Christ but will Christ have that in us?

The sound of love is the sound of victory for all. The enemy has been drowning out this sound with the noise of gongs. But the Lord is calling out to us, “Silence the cymbals and release the sound that never fails…the sound of 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.” 1 Corinthians 13:1

Come Lord Jesus and teach us love. Remove every violation and agreement with the enemy that has failed us and divided us. Search us and see if there is any offensive way in our hearts and lives. Create in us a clean heart oh God!

Your Vats Will Overflow!

Today the Spirit spoke to me out of Proverbs 3:9-10,

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” Proverbs‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭

There is a divine reset coming for many of you in the area of finance. I sensed the Lord desiring a “first fruits” offering to finish the 2018 year with honoring Him with an extravagant financial gift. The promise attached to it comes from the verse above from the Book of Proverbs. Honor the Lord with your wealth! This is an “honorarium to the Lord for His faithfulness and faithful promises.

2019 will be a year of new wine poured into new wine skins. There has been an emptying of the things of old that could not hold what the Lord is bringing forth in the days ahead. He has prepared us to walk honorably with wealth and emptied us of the old in order to fill us with the overflow of new wine. This will be a physical and spiritual overflow.

Will you prepare your first fruits offering to seal 2018 and to secure 2019? This will close the past year with thanksgiving and open the door of the new year with the honor that is attached to the promise in Proverbs 3:9-10.

Lastly, the Lord spoke to me from Ezekiel 12:23 recently saying that this will be the new proverb or new testimony in 2019 and beyond (I believe it shifted on 12/23/2018). I will start in verse 22 in order to give context,

“Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Even this week we are seeing prophesies coming to pass that are decades old! This is merely the beginning of the days that will hear the testimonies of visions and prophesies fulfilled. It will be a time of Biblical and Personal prophesies coming to pass.

Proverbs 3:9-10 is a promise and prophesy that those who honor the Lord with their wealth will see come to pass!

Wrestling Until God Wins

Kathi Pelton

Many are experiencing a type of spiritual warfare and wrestle as we finish 2018 and prepare to enter 2019. It may feel like an overwhelming sense of failure, regrets, condemnation, fear, or other issues that cause your soul to feel separated from the unconditional love of God. Some believers are wrestling with a sense of great spiritual hunger that leaves them craving deeper realms of God, requiring further surrender and yielding to the Spirit in ways that feel unfamiliar and uncertain.

Whatever feelings might accompany the wrestle, be assured that the wrestle is worth the reward! It may cause pain–it may even cause confusion–but as you wrestle down the defenses in your soul that have become barriers to the deeper experience of oneness with Christ, it will be the best fight you will ever lose!

When Christ is forged and formed in you, He will overthrow other things have occupied you, taking up space within your life and your heart. Often these things are so familiar and comforting that they cause blind spots in our lives, until circumstances crash us against the shores of false beliefs. We don’t see the dark places until we enter into the wrestle to see Jesus formed in us.

The enemy does not want greater surrender or refinement in our lives because he knows that the more yielded we are to Jesus, the more light we will reveal that will dispel darkness.

2019 will be a doorway into occupying land for the Kingdom of God. The Spirit of the Lord is preparing many by occupying further territory in His people’s lives. This requires us to war against strongholds that the enemy has held in our lives. To wrestle these places down we must face the fears that have fortified these strongholds. We must battle down false securities, idols, and comforts that we’ve carried like a child’s security blanket. We are being asked to leave behind childish things so that the enemy has no place in us as we are sent to take back lives and land for the Kingdom.

The ways of the Holy One are upside-down and backwards to the ways of man or the ways of human reasoning. Therefore when we begin to enter the ways of God, we can experience a type of spiritual and emotional vertigo. This vertigo can cause us to try to regain balance through old ways and by relying on strongholds that have caused us to feel in control. It is vital that we begin to be still and allow the Spirit to reorient us to the atmosphere He creates.

This is not a time to back down or to run ahead, but rather to wrestle down the “flight” mode of the discomforts that accompany change and transformation. This is a time of fight, not flight. Fight for stillness, fight for surrender, fight for yieldedness, and fight to see Christ formed in you!

“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” Colossians‬ ‭1:27-29‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Christmas Eve: The Wonder!

Christmas 🎄 Eve is my favorite day!

I love the wonder and excitement in the face of children, the carefully chosen and colorfully wrapped gifts nestled under the tree, the stockings hung and filled with little treasures, the Christmas story being read by fathers, the smell of freshly baked cookies coming from kitchens, new Christmas pajamas being worn and little ones being cuddled and the glow of Christmas lights that bring peace and joy to all who see them.

May this day be all of those things and more for you and your family. Most of all…may the lasting joy of the Savior that was born to us be what makes this Christmas one to be treasured and cherished throughout the years to come. Love came down and He still brings wonder, excitement, gifts, treasures, warmth, embrace, light, joy and peace to all who let Him in.

Merry Christmas Eve from the Pelton family!

Prophecy Fulfilled!

Kathi Pelton

I woke up to a text from a close friend asking me about the numbers 12:22. I stopped to ask the Lord if He had something to say about this (because there are many amazing 12:22 scriptures) and this is what He gave me!!

““Son of man, you’ve heard that proverb they quote in Israel: ‘Time passes, and prophecies come to nothing.’ Tell the people, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will put an end to this proverb, and you will soon stop quoting it.’ Now give them this new proverb to replace the old one: ‘The time has come for every prophecy to be fulfilled!’” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭

I felt Him say that after 12/22 (December 22nd) we will be moving from a time where often we saw “prophecies come to nothing” into vs. 23…THE TIME HAS COME FOR EVERY PROPHECY TO BE FULFILLED!!

The end of 2018 will mark a time where a new “proverb” or saying will replace the old. Delays, disappointments and doubt will be replaced by faith, fruit and fulfillment!

Begin to declare and prophesy the new proverb (saying) over your life, family, church, city and nation!

Thank You and Merry Christmas!

Christmas Blessing

On that bright night, so long ago in Bethlehem, the Savior of the world came to us in the form of a tiny baby. He was born to a young Jewish girl who began the high honor of being the mother of the long awaited Messiah with the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

Her words of surrender made a way for the ultimate surrender; His life. His existence on earth began with her surrender and ended with his surrender.

Today, we honor the legacy of Mary by continuing a posture of surrendering our all to the One who gave His all for us. His “all” ushered us into freedom from sin, death and captivity. Our surrender allows us to enter into the fullness of that freedom.

What a joy to be grafted into the bloodline of that baby who changed the world at the moment of his conception as his young, virgin mother spoke the words that now rest on our lips,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

The stars that shone so bright on that night still light up our darkness and announce that a Savior has been born unto us. The angels that witnessed the birth of our Messiah still today sing,

“Glory to God in the highest, and peace, goodwill to man.”

Let us join in with their song and give our lives as an offering to Him. Let us bring the very thing that He came and died for…you and me.

How can we say thank you for this gift that cost His all? By holding nothing back! If there is anything that has been held back in your life or heart today go and lay it at His feet. He takes every offering and breathes life and salvation upon them. Every offering becomes blessed when surrendered to Jesus.

I bless you this Christmas with my prayers that you will have courage and grace to offer your all. It is the gift He paid for and that will come back upon you abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine.

Merry Christmas and Glory to God in the Highest…peace and goodwill upon you and your household!

With Love~ Kathi Pelton and the entire Pelton Family
