My Divine Appointment

by Kathi Pelton

I am in awe at how God orchestrated the divine appointment I had on an airplane this past Friday.

I was flying Southwest Airlines which is an airline that gives you three group that you board with and then it is a matter of getting whatever seats are available. I always pre-check 24-hours ahead when flying Southwest in order to get in the first group boarding. Somehow for this trip I completely forgot until not many hours before the flight. I am traveling with my 25-year old daughter, Amy, so now we were both put into the last group to board which would mean we wouldn’t sit together and we’d both get middle seats. Honestly, I was a bit frustrated at my forgetfulness since pre-check in had been on my mind and Was not something I ever forget to do.

When it was time for our last group to board the plane the counter person announced to our group that it will be a full plane and to take the first seat available. As I walked onto the plane I set my purse on the first seats available directly in front of my daughter. I then realized there wasn’t any overhead room for my carry-on. Leaving my purse on my seat, I went further down the aisle find an overhead compartment to store my carry-on case.

After storing it about ten rows back from where I’d set me purse down the flight attendant asked if I could sit down near where I was. I first began to sit next to a man and she said, “No, not there.” (he was a very large man so I think she was being kind to us both). So I looked on the other side and saw two women talking; one on the aisle and one by the window and asked if I could sit between them. They agreed even though they were obviously traveling together.

My daughter brought me my purse from the original seat that I had chosen and as she did I immediately thought, “God moved me for a reason.” So I began to listen.

About thirty minutes into the flight I looked at the lady near the window and heard the Lord say, “Tell her that daughter will be okay.” Then I asked the Lord if He had more to say and He said, “Ask her if her daughter’s middle name is Rose because she will fully blossom and fulfill her purpose in life.”

She had headphones in so I waited so as to not interrupt her. Finally, I just excused myself to speak to her. When I told her that the Lord spoke to me to tell her that her daughter was going to be okay her eyes filled with tears and she said, “My 16 year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer in November.”

This mom was far more scared than her daughter. She said that her daughter was incredible and brace but she was struggling as she watched her daughter going through chemo and losing her beautiful hair. Her daughter had started donating her hair to “locks for love” (they make wigs for children with cancer who have lost their hair) at four years old. Every year her daughter would grow her hair out and then have it cut to donate it to this organization. She even got her community and peers involved in joining her. Now she had cancer and had lost all of her hair.

Then I asked her if her middle name is Rose (honestly doubting my “hearing” because not too many 16 year olds have the name Rose nowadays!). I shared with her that the Lord showed me that she would fully bloom. She said, “Yes! When I was pregnant with her I saw her as a beautiful rose that would bloom over time so I named her Elizabeth Rose.”

There was more but this mom’s heart was put at ease that her daughter would be okay and God confirmed it with a “rose”. She had already believed in God and believed that God was the one who showed her to add the name Rose to her but I could see how this very personal word was taking her brief to a new place and revealing His love in a very tangible way.

I was reminded through this encounter of how God orders and establishes our steps. He orchestrated every step to assure that I would sit in that very seat because a mom’s heart needed the comforting assurance. I could have remained frustrated at forgetting to do early check in, for having to lose my seat, for a crowded plane and for not being near my daughter but the Spirit has taught me that He has my steps and my seats planned ahead of time. Pay attention when you lose your seat or something disrupts your plans because God may be setting you up to be His mouthpiece. What a good, good Father!

Let us all become more aware of God’s divine orchestration and appointments that He puts before us. I’m so grateful that I didn’t give into doubt and hold back the part about her daughter’s middle name being Rose because that was His signature upon the word that made it unmistakable to this mom.

“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.” Psalm‬ ‭37:5-6‬ ‭

“The steps of a man are established by the Lord, when he delights in his way…” Psalms‬ ‭37:23‬ ‭

Let us become more aware of how He is ordering our steps!

God Has Promised to Prosper You and Not to Harm You

by Kathi Pelton

God’s promises are real! Do you believe that? His promises of blessings and help are not just nice words to give you false hope but they are promises from God and He cannot lie!

Human hope is more of a “wish” than true Biblical hope which is “assurance”! Many believers live expecting adversity and lack and merely “hope” (wish for) a more positive outcome.

My family had the privileged of spending a number of years as a part of Patricia King’s team in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. I remember during those first years of “living by faith” (often what I’d call “frantic faith” rather than fearless faith) she would often say to me,

“If you put your faith out for lack that is what you will get but if you put your faith in His promises then you will receive what He has promised.”

Our family has now spent many years in full time ministry; being paid through the generosity of those who were moved by the Holy Spirit to support us. In the early days I would spend more time fretting and worrying that we would lack then believing what He promised. This was often how things ended up which reinforced my fear and doubts. It is where I put my “faith”. Yet, God dealt with me according to His love and did a deep work in my heart that moved me from fear to true faith. True faith releases the hope that assures the good result (fruit).

God walked me through a process that took my life from fear to peace. It is a peace that surpasses what my eyes see or my mind understands. It is a peace that is founded in the truth that says it is my Father’s good pleasure to keep His promises and to bless me with all the benefits of being His daughter. It is not your Heavenly Father’s desire to harm you in any way…it is His great desire to bless you with every good and perfect gift.

One of the things that I discovered as He began to walk me out of the bondage of fear was to show me who He is as a Father. I had been living out of an orphan spirit; the poverty spirit is like conjoined twins with the orphan spirit. They walk hand in hand (or head to head); always believing that the Father seeks to punish, demand performance and then leave you suffering with lack, confusion and harm. The person with an orphan spirit deeply desires to be wanted and yet finds it inconceivable that they actually can be wanted or loved. The orphan spirit chains the believer to unbelief because it cannot coexist with the true love of the Father or the peace that comes from this truth. The poverty spirit easily coexists with the orphan spirit because they both are founded on lies, doubt, unbelief and hope deferred. They exist outside of the realm of being a son or daughter who is deeply loved and extravagantly cared for.

When I was set free from the orphan spirit the poverty spirit had to go as well. I began to KNOW and BELIEVE every promise of God. Rather than spend my nights in a sleepless state of trying to figure out how I would find my way out of constant pending disappointment and lack; I was able to lay my head down at night knowing that my Heavenly Father had everything I needed and even things that I desired. I didn’t have to have a back up plan or try to convince myself that God was good but somehow I was bad and deserved this treatment. My faith (or should I say “fear”) had been based on performance and wrong identity; not His promises or in the love of sonship.

Do you dare to believe with the hope that assures that God desires to prosper you and not harm you? The Word of God is 100% truth! You can lay down tonight knowing that He will keep His promises.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord says to you tonight, “My child, you can rest assured of my love and promises for good and not evil in your life. Only believe.”

The words “Rest Assured” means that you will receive the best of care…this is the truth!

I heard these words from His heart today for you,

“I am the God who will surely rescue you and restore you. I do not slumber or sleep but am always watchful over my beloved ones. My arm is not too short to reach you. Rest within my arms and trust me. Know that you are being held by me this very moment. I will not fail you.”

Rest in the grip of His unfailing love. Let peace wash over you as you lean into surrendered trust. Let His kiss bring you new life and His arms comfort you with tender care and joyful confidence.

It’s Restoration Time!

by Kathi Pelton

Joel 2:25-27 has been going through my spirit for many months,

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,

The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,

And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame. Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God and there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.”

Every time I read these verses, one particular line stands out to me,

“… My great army which I sent among you.” (vs. 25b)

We often get so excited about the restoration part that we miss this line. So why am I pointing it out? It is for perspective and for deep understanding of how loved we are as sons and daughters.

This may sound strange, and you may wonder what I mean. How can an army of locusts sent among us prove the depths of the love of our Father?

Many years ago my husband and I were launched into ministry in a very public way, yet there was still much refining in our hearts and in the intent of our hearts that still needed to occur. At one point in our journey our amazing Heavenly Father looked upon us and knew that we needed the discipline that only a loving father can bring. He sent among our lives what only can be described as an army of “swarming and crawling locusts.” This season of difficulty, which looked to our eyes like destruction, was actually the time of discipline that would lead to repentance for the sake of restoration. It was the Father sending His great love upon us in the form of chastening.

I cannot imagine the depth of love that it took our Father to send such discipline upon our lives. The pain that came upon us was devastating. The “locusts” came and exposed every area of compromise, rebellion, pride, and unfaithfulness that was masked under all of the “good works.” This “army sent among us” stayed for seven years and I truly did not know if we would survive. I was often convinced that it was a demonic attack against us for all the years of ministry we had done. Although I am sure that the enemy took advantage of this time, I am more convinced that the great mercy of our God sent this among us in order to save us from our own hidden sins and generational strongholds.

It is easy to blame the enemy for everything that comes upon us but during those seven years, time and time again I became keenly aware of all that was being brought to the surface and exposed that neither my husband nor I had allowed ourselves to deal with. God was extracting the precious from the worthless. He was refining us, disciplining us (because He loves us so very much), and saving us from the things that would have ultimately destroyed us.

I won’t take the time to go into how deep and severe this seven year period was but I will say that I don’t know if I, as a parent, could have allowed my children to face such excruciating pain and not intervened. But the depths of His love allowed the full process to take place, knowing that He was there to save and deliver us from the very things that would have destroyed us. It gave me a greater understanding of how He could send His Son to die for us!

Psalm 78:8 says,

“Then they will not be like their ancestors— stubborn, rebellious, and unfaithful, refusing to give their hearts to God.”

God was assuring us that we would not be like those who had gone before us; stubborn, rebellious and not giving our hearts fully to Him. During those long and agonizing seven years He humbled us, gave us hearts of obedience, hearts fully yielded to Him. He knew the deep cry in us to be like Him and in His mercy He disciplined us and answered our greatest longing.

Many of you have gone through long periods of crisis and what only can be described as an army of locus sent among you. But what if it was (or is) the greatness of the love of your Father that sent this “great army among you” in order to save you?

We came out of those years refined and have seen gold produced. We are learning not to resist repentance but to understand it as a gift of freedom that we may quickly embrace. The fire of His love still remains upon us, keeping us pure and holy unto Him. And now we live in the time of restoration; we dwell in the beauty of verses 26 and 27,

“…You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you; And My people shall never be put to shame. Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel: I am the Lord your God and there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.”

Though many of you have been through a time of a “great army being sent among you,” there is a promise that springs from this time and it is the promise of restoration! I truly cannot thank God enough for His discipline and for sending the army that exposed all that was hidden. He delivered us from so much! How great is His love! How vast is His wisdom and how good are His ways!

If you are in the midst of this sort of sifting and refining, humble yourself before the Lord quickly. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you the gifts of humility, obedience, and faithfulness, and to cause your whole heart to be turned toward Him. Not only for your sake but for your children and your children’s children.

“…because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.” Hebrews 12:6

It is better to humble yourself before you are humbled by the Lord. This is a time where God is creating a people who will walk in humility, obedience, and faithfulness, whose hearts belong fully to Him.

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.” James 4:10

Oh, how deep His love is for you and for me!

Be Still…God is in Control!

by Kathi Pelton

Last year a friend sent this photo of the still waters of the harbor where she lives and wrote the words,

“Be still and know that I am God.”

She did not know that the night prior I had gone to bed with a bit of a wrestle in my soul against concerns that were out of my control. Whenever this “wrestle or stirring” in my soul begins to occur (disrupting peace) I become aware that the enemy seeks to steal my peace, my stillness (posture of trust and abiding in His faithfulness), and create striving. The enemy comes to make waves in order to block the view of Jesus.

When Jesus called Peter to walk to Him upon the water, they were on a stormy sea with waves that would have easily hindered Peter’s view of the Lord’s outstretched hand. As the waves blocked his view, fear set in and Peter began to sink beneath the raging sea. This is such a clear illustration of what the enemy tries to do with the storms of life and the waves of circumstances.

The One who calms the seas calls us to come out from the natural into the supernatural (walking on the water of faith) but the one who stirs the waters of fear will always try to block our view so that we will sink under the powerful force of the natural (seen) realm so that we will abandon faith for fear.

God speaks over the storms of life, “Peace be still”

He speaks over your life, “Be still and know that I am God.”

Our faith in this truth calms the storms of our souls and takes us into the supernatural ability to walk upon the water. Faith makes a pathway in which we can walk out to take hold of the outstretched hand of the One who has authority over every natural, created thing.

“The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalm 118:6

Do not fear! If God is for us then who can stand against us? Who can stop the Lord Almighty? No one…not one!

Today, speak in faith to your soul, “Be still.” Walk out upon the natural storm that surrounds you and do not sink under the waves that rage with fearful intimidations of doom. Take hold of the outstretched hand of Jesus who will lift you above the natural into the supernatural stillness, peace, and rest of abiding in the shadow of His wing.

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.””

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2, 4-16‬

The Emergence of the Nameless and Faceless Generation

by Kathi Pelton

In February 1989 my husband and I were a part of the pastoral team at a northern California Vineyard church. That month a prophet by the name of Paul Cain released a word at the Anaheim Vineyard; a prophecy that became known as the vision of the “nameless and faceless generation.” It deeply impacted and shaped many of us in the Vineyard movement. We began to pray and declare that our sons and daughters would be that generation.

Here is how Paul Cain describes the vision he had exactly thirty years ago,

“In February 1989, at the Anaheim Vineyard during a conference, I prophesied a time when athletic stadiums and arenas would be filled with God’s people preaching the gospel and healing the sick in extraordinary fashion. In my vision I saw ambulances bringing in the worst medical cases, the local hospitals being emptied to deliver their patients to these events, and the dead (dead people!) being raised by an army of nameless and faceless Christians releasing a wave of miraculous healings and conversions. This vision encompassed multiple venues over an extended period and spoke of God’s glory being released in an unprecedented manner and on a scale that had not been witnessed before. In short, this work was not the result of men; this was the work of the Father himself!

In my vision, the international media were reporting the amazing events as they took place. This was the news of the day: every channel, every station, and every nation. This was not an isolated Christian event, the kind that is well known and publicized in the Christian community, yet even the immediate neighbours of the event have no clue what is happening inside; rather, this was a series of events that would affect the world and the communities around the stadiums and arenas.” (Paul Cain)

Last month, on February 12, 2019,exactly thirty years to the month after Paul released this revelation, he passed away. The Lord had told me to pay attention on February 12 & 13 because it would be a “demarcation mark in time.”

When I woke up on the 13th and read that Paul had passed away during the night hours, I knew that a new day was dawning on earth.

Since that day I have been pondering the vision of the nameless and faceless generation that we all carried so close to our hearts from 1989 onward. I believe that Paul’s passing was a marker that signals the unveiling of this generation.

A few nights ago we were out to dinner with some dear friends. The Lord had been so present in our conversations, and we were surprised when it unexpectedly began to snow outside (this is not common this time of year in the Portland, Oregon area). Within minutes the ground was covered with a white blanket. As this happened I began to share with our friends about the “nameless and faceless generation,” and as I did the Lord took me into an encounter where I saw a thirty-year assignment against identity that the enemy sent when Paul Cain’s vision was released.

I was taken into a brief but profound vision where I saw a white haired man (Paul Cain) speaking forth the vision, and as he did the enemy grabbed hold of it in terror and sent orders to bring about a demonic demonstration of a “nameless and faceless generation” by bringing such deception and confusion about their identity that they wouldn’t even know their gender. He would use fatherlessness, the media, Hollywood, the education system, and every means possible to release confusion in the lives of the younger generation so that the pure and holy vision would be snatched away. The enemy has relentlessly unfolded his plan for identity confusion over the past thirty years. I recently had a thirty-year-old tell me that she identified as “Z.” When I asked her what that meant she said, “It means nothing. I have no identity!”

Then the Lord said to me,

“Kathi, if my people will gather together and begin to decree over the earth the true identity of this generation that is loved by their heavenly Father, then they will be redeemed. Call for the nameless and faceless generation to emerge with purity and holiness unto the Lord. Surround and support them as mothers and fathers until they come into such oneness with Me that My name and face is all that is seen.”

It is time for the Abraham, Issac, and Jacob generations to be joined as one generation that will carry the bold courage and spirit of Joshua and Caleb. I believe that this nameless and faceless generation will bring forth life from death! God will send fire upon their sacrifice and it will show all the world that He alone is God! It will displace the idols of Baal and the false prophets of the secular world that have deceived our children and brought great confusion resulting in lost identity.

It is now time for us to gather and call forth God’s plans and purposes for this time and this generation. This thirty-year-old prophesy is for now and is being made new. The old and new, the young and old, the ancient paths and the future paths are converging for the sake of the pure emerging. The fear of the Lord will be the standard and the longing for holiness is even now resting upon many individuals. Heart motives are being purified, restoring first love and a desire for Jesus’ name to be heard and His face to be seen.

It is time!

WANTED!

by Kathi Pelton

As I woke up at exactly 5:55 this morning I saw in my spirit a “WANTED” poster (like those in the old west that were hung up to find criminals). This “wanted poster” had a photo of a baby in the womb upon it and at the bottom it said the word, “ALIVE.” It was if the angels were hanging “Wanted Alive” posters throughout the land.

This is a time in which every social media post that calls to protect the lives of the unborn (or now even the unwanted who are “born alive”) is like the the flood of posters hung throughout the land in the old days to catch a murderer. We are catching the attention of people over and over with declarations and posts that say these babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We are declaring them as wanted by someone— somewhere. They are wanted alive by God! Every person (liberal or conservative) would agree that they are appalled when they hear of a crime where a parent has taken the life of their child. We cannot fathom such a vile crime against innocence at the hand of the one who was to love them most. The betrayal of trust at the hand of a parent is unthinkable. And yet now our nation lights up buildings in celebration of such things! They blithely call it abortion; we call it murder.

I cannot imagine how the recent laws that have been passed to legislate the right for a parent to take the life of their full-term unborn baby will further damage the conscience of mankind. Or the banning of laws that protect a child born alive after an abortion attempt! What kind of depravity has come upon our society that we have placed ourselves as “gods” with the right to make such decisions. We (mankind) were made to be fruitful and multiply and yet we now crush the fruit of our wombs and stand like fruitless trees before our Creator. In the Bible Jesus spoke of cutting down trees that did not bear fruit, but now our nation celebrates the right to cut the fruit out of our wombs. We have been entrusted with these precious little ones and yet we have dehumanized them in the very way that Hitler did the Jews or the KKK did our beautiful African-American brothers and sisters.

God has great and deep compassion for those who are in the grip of fear and pain as they face an unplanned pregnancy, or who live with the pain from a past abortion; and so must we. But this post is not written to them; it is for us as a nation, as the Church (who has been given authority) and to those who have an ear to hear the truth. We cannot stop putting up “posts” or posters that say that babies are WANTED ALIVE!

We also must understand what this declaration of “unwanted babies” releases in the spirit realm. There is already a sense of being “unwanted” by so many people. I am constantly ministering to people who do not understand their value or who feel unwanted. The agreement that our nation and other nations have come into and have made into laws releases a spirit of betrayal, of abandonment, of death, and of suicide into the very atmosphere. It is like saying, “You are unwanted; therefore you should die.”

There are so many couples and families that are longing for a baby!My husband and I adopted our first child and how we wept in joy and in awe when our arms were filled my her beauty. Now, one of our children hasn’t been able to conceive and she and her husband ache for a baby to love and hold. It is so incredibly painful for them—and others like them—to see babies thrown away and discarded like a piece of unwanted trash. They would take them and raise them in loving families in a heartbeat, but apparently for many individuals it is so much easier to just discard these babies and call them tissue.

How is it that we treat our used cans and bottles with more care that these precious living gifts that come from God? We are appalled at the mistreatment of an animal (which we should be!) but we kill our babies and make laws to protect the right to do so.

I am one of those people that cannot watch movies about the Holocaust without being deeply disturbed in my soul for days. I cannot wrap my mind around how anyone can look in the face of a mother and her child or a father and his son and kill them because of their race. I know it is a demonic spirit that comes upon people, but still I cannot imagine such cruelty or hard-heartedness. Yet, here we are doing the very thing to precious and absolutely innocent babies. My heart is broken.

All that I can say is, “God have mercy!” Have mercy upon these babies who are wanted alive. Have mercy upon the ones who have unplanned pregnancies, have mercy upon our nation(s). Have mercy upon mankind!

The Beauty of Tears Offered As Praise

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!
