There Is A “Sound Swell”— It’s The Sound of Revival!

by Kathi Pelton

There is a sound that is swelling in the atmosphere that will ignite revival throughout the world— it is the sound of the “laid down lovers” intermingled with the sound of the One who laid His life down.

I was taken into an encounter where I found myself before our precious Jesus as His hands were being nailed to the cross. With each pound of the hammer He let out a great cry. Yet in this encounter His cry was heard in my spirit as, “Yes! I lay Myself down!” Each cry was His yes given to save us— the “Yes” of One who is purchasing back His Bride.

Then I was taken to crowds of believers who were giving their “Yes” to lay down their lives for the sake of Christ. Their “Yes” was an unconditional and fully abandoned “Yes!” Then, suddenly the “Yes” of Christ from 2000 years ago, as He was being nailed to the cross, and the “Yes” of His sons and daughters today went forth as one sound. The echo of His yes and our yes intermingled into a sound of revival. I saw billions (not millions but billions) come to Christ in response to this sound!

An explosion of the sound of “Yes” is the trip wire that will signal revival…worldwide revival. No man, no law and nothing will be able to stop the sound. Old and young will run to hear the sound, to encounter the Man and to add their “Yes!” The “critical mass” required to for a chain reaction of salvation and purification is about to occur!

Do you feel and hear the swell of this sound? Release your “YES!” It is the unconditional yes that holds nothing back but rather it lays down all for the sake of the One who laid down His all. It is the yes of those who are completely dependent and surrendered. It is the yes that declares, “He is worthy of it all!”

Testimony Time!! Do You Need Financial Breakthrough?

by Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was sitting with a small group of people that I’m traveling with as we were preparing for the day. As we sat together the Spirit came into the room and we began to express that a particular brother in the Lord had been on all of our hearts that day. This man is a part of a team that we travel with and he had a financial need that needed to be met right away. We began praying for him and as we did I felt that I was to thank a couple that was in the room because I knew that they had sown financially into him out of their own need. Suddenly the Lord dropped on all of us in the room to sow financially into his breakthrough and said that it would bring our breakthrough as well.

A couple hours later one of our team members turned to me and said, “Kathi, have you sown your financial gift yet?” I had gotten busy after our prayer and not yet done it yet so I replied, “Not yet.” She said, “Your gift is the release.” Then it was like a swirl of angelic excitement filled the room and I knew I needed to sow a particular amount right away.

I pulled out my phone and went to his fundraiser page to sow. As soon as I entered the amount and pressed “send” my phone received a notification that I had in that exact moment received ten times that amount…to the penny! It was an amazing breakthrough moment. Our whole group knew that what we had done for this brother’s missions project was releasing breakthrough for our own ministry needs!

This is how the Kingdom works! Then I began to speak the words from Luke 6:38 aloud,

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”

We gave with such excitement and joy to see our brother’s breakthrough and it was not only returned in full but ten times more!

God’s ways are not the ways of men! “The amount you give will determine the amount you get back!” It’s so backwards and upside down from the ways of the world! It is time we turn the tables on the issue of lack and poverty. Let’s follow the way of the Kingdom of God that releases breakthrough for all.

Our little “giving party” yesterday is still having a ripple effect upon all involved; not only financially but spiritually and prophetically! The angels gathered around us with such excitement and I am so aware that they have been drawn to the atmosphere of heaven that was created on earth as we gave.

It’s time to overturn the tables of lack by aligning with the ways of the Kingdom…which is generosity! The world is what is upside down; not God’s ways. Recalibrate, realign and renew your mind with the perspective of heaven! Create an atmosphere of heaven on earth, where the angels gather and God opens the windows of heaven over you!

Luke 6:38 is the key to the outpouring of breakthrough and the atmosphere of heaven opening over your life!

“…I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! Your crops will be abundant, for I will guard them from insects and disease. Your grapes will not fall from the vine before they are ripe,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” Malachi‬ ‭3:10-11‬ ‭

The “Yes” That Fills The Room

by Kathi Pelton

Sometimes your “Yes” to Jesus comes with great excitement and joy but when your “Yes” comes with the sober awareness of sacrifice and cost; then it must be accompanied by the awareness and posture that cries out, “You are worthy of it all!”

These times remind me of Mary, a teenager being visited by the angel of the Lord who announced that the Holy Spirit would cause her to conceive a child, the Messiah. She had to be keenly aware of at least some of the cost; reputation, misunderstanding, accusations and so much more. Yet, in that moment of “being chosen” her response was this,

“And Mary said, “Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.” LUKE‬ ‭1:38‬

“Be it unto me according to your word.” Those words have become the deepest cry of my life. I would pray them in the days of my youth with little understanding of the weight that they carried. Though I’d never change that innocent response of the “teenaged me”; today when I pray it I understand the weight of taking up my cross and following Him.

The beauty has far outweighed the cost and we choose not to count the cost but rather to count it all joy! He is so worth it all and making His worth known throughout the earth is what we live for. To see Jesus receive His full inheritance is our greatest joy. He gave His all so how can we give any less; even in the moments that our “yes” has the fragrance of sacrifice upon it?

I believe every “yes” is a pleasing offering to Him but the “yes” that is accompanied by tears and an awareness of truly having to “let go of your will to receive His” is especially beautiful to Him.

If you are in a “Yes” moment…either for the first time or you’ve lost count because you live a “yes lifestyle” then remember that the only regret we’d ever have at the end of our lives would be the times we held anything back from Him. Our “all” is the only offering that is fitting the God who gave His all.

When He visits you, to choose you, respond with the only words that are fitting, “Be it unto me according to your word.” If tears and sacrifice accompany your response then know that your words are like the costly perfume in the alabaster jar poured over His feet once again. The fragrance of your yes fills the room!

We say yes…

The Veil Will Be Torn On Capitol Hill

by Kathi Pelton

This morning while I was worshipping I was taken into a powerful vision. In the vision I was kneeling in prayer at the Lincoln Memorial; looming across the National Mall to the Capitol Building. I was kneeling and weeping for our nation from the exact spot that Martin Luther King gave his “I Have A Dream” speech. As I interceded I suddenly saw the Capitol Building split down the middle but it was a veil tearing.

Suddenly what appeared in its place was the Lamb of God seated upon the mercy seat. His throne was as large as the Capitol Building had been. At His feet stood those that serve in leadership in our nation; the representatives from the house and the senate. The veil had been torn and this “house divided” was before the King of Kings and as they looked upon Him they suddenly became united by the love in His eyes and the revelation of “who He truly is!”

In this vision the veil of deception, division and separation was torn and Jesus was revealed to all who filled our Capitol Building as “The God Who We Trust In.” Mercy poured forth from His throne as they bowed in awe at the sight of Him and their eyes were open to truth.

As I saw this vision I began to weep as if it was happening even now. Faith for revival in that divided house filled me. We know that the Word says,

“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25

There has been a crumbling of the house in our nation; often revolving around the issues of family and life. This has caused many individual homes and families throughout our nation to crumble. But if revival can come to Washington DC and the sovereignty of God causes the veil to be torn, then even the enemies of God will cry out “Holy is the Lord.” Then we will be united and truly stand as the United States!

This past week, as I was in Washington DC, I experienced such an awakening of deep intercession for our nation. I literally didn’t want to leave but longed to stay and weep between the porch and the alter on behalf of our nation. Oh how I long to see Jesus receive His full inheritance in our nation. I ached to see His mercy respond to the blood that cries out in the ground with His blood that washes away our sin. I longed with such a deep travail to see our nation bow before Him as our eyes are opened to see His beauty. He is worthy!

Will we take this vision and add our faith and intercession to it? Or will we merely say, “That will never happen!”? It never will if we do not take up the cause of Christ on behalf of our nation. God is asking for those who will partner with Him and say, “Yes, I believe and will intercede!”

As I stood in David’s Tent last week in DC I could feel the longing of the Lord that it would always be full…full of believers that have been called to stand in the gap. The angels gather there and the Lord is longing for His people to gather there to partner with the heavenly host that He has sent there.

In the early 2000’s my husband and I directed a house of prayer that Patricia King had birthed called The War Room. It was an amazing place but in 2006 the Lord visited us and asked us if we would sow it into the ground as a seed that would come forth at a later time. We have longed to have the seed come up out of the ground since that time.

As I slept during my third night in Washington DC I had a dream that “war rooms” would suddenly arise out of the ground; first in DC and then multiplied throughout the nation. They were places that men and women would gather to come into the counsel chambers of heaven. Those who gathered would receive the counsel and wisdom of the Lord for the days ahead. Scrolls, blueprints and strategies would come as they gathered in His presence. Wisdom for issues that man could not find solutions for would come and change the trajectory of homes, families, cities, states and for our nation.

Can revival come to our nation’s capital? Yes it can! Speak it, let the vision burn in our hearts, call on God and stand in the gap. May His glory fill this house!

An Opportunity for Transforming an Inner-City Neighborhood

A door has been opened to us to be part of an initiative in West Palm Beach, Florida beginning June 20, 2019.

The Awaken the Dawn team will work in conjunction with local ministries, business leaders, and other partners to see the revitalization of an inner-city neighborhood in West Palm, Florida, with the goal of of long-term, sustainable transformation on a city-wide level.

We have been asked for our involvement in setting up a tent to host the presence of God in the area as spiritual covering and support to the physical work of restoration and transformation.

Singers, musicians, and prayer warriors from across the country will join us in praying through the area, receiving strategic blueprints, shifting the spiritual atmosphere, and establishing a house of prayer in the midst of this amazing project.

All those who say “yes” to this invitation will do so as volunteers; therefore, this assignment will need to be funded by supporters. The cost for us to take part in this missions project is approximately $1500.00.

This is an opportunity for the body of Christ to sow into sustainable transformation that will truly reach the poor and needy with hope and new beginnings, while bringing city transformation.

Let us fulfill the following verses in our cities and nation!

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it with you.— Proverbs 3:27-28

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.— Proverbs 11:25

“Here I Am; Send Me!” This Is A Time Of Being Commissioned and Sent

by Kathi Pelton

I saw the hand of the Lord touching individuals and placing assignments upon their lives. He has been repositioning many and now I saw Him commissioning them.

It reminded me of when God appointed and commissioned Jeremiah as a prophet to nations,

““I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭

Jeremiah’s response to this was to dispute God’s choosing saying that he was too young. God answered Jeremiah by saying,

“The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put my words in your mouth!” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:7-9‬ ‭

He is the one who appointed you, even before you were born! This is the time of commissioning. It is He alone that will fill your mouth to stand and speak in the places that He will send you. It is His favor that will make a way for you, not your own strength. He is God and there is no other; therefore, He will be sovereign to accomplish through you that which you could never do yourself.

I remember many years ago being in a worship service and hearing the Lord ask me if I would go wherever He wanted to send me. I wholeheartedly responded with the words, “Here I am; send me.” I had little idea what those five words would release upon my life.

I think that at the time that I spoke them I didn’t truly believe that He’d use me in any significant way. I was a housewife and mother of young children who ministered on a local church staff. But God does not make anyone for insignificance! He put His words in my mouth and now has sent me and given me courage to trust His strength as I have stood before nations.

This was not because I am the most gifted to do this or the most qualified. Actually it is quite the opposite. I am the least qualified but it is God who appoints and commissions, and us who says, “Here am I; send me.”

Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Whether you are called, like Jeremiah, to prophecy to nations or you are called to be His voice in the marketplace, do not fear because He will fill your mouth with His words.

One thing that I have learned in my walk is utter dependency. As a young girl I had terrible stage fright. I remember being asked to sing a solo in a school concert and when it came time to sing it no sound would come out of my mouth. Fear blocked my voice and though my lips moved no sounds came forth. To this very day if I put any dependency upon myself that old fear will return. As I trust Him to fill my mouth then what comes forth is even surprising to me; for it is Him and not me.

Dependency and yielding to His Spirit is key to whatever gift and calling He places upon your life.

You have been appointed and now many of you have been positioned. Suddenly you will be commissioned! Get ready for the great commission to come upon your life and give you influence to the place and people that He has called you to.

“For many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

Allowing your life to remain in Christ through the waiting and preparation is what positioned you to be chosen. Jeremiah had a choice regarding being a prophet to nations. When God said to him,

““Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them.” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:17‬

He had a choice! He was chosen and he obeyed the call and was commissioned. Many are called but few choose to follow. You have stood the test of time and said yes to His call. You will go forth as one of the few and see many saved, changed and then, they too, will become one of the few.

Do not be afraid for He is with you! Do all that He has asked you to do and watch the victories come forth.

Has A Mountain Been Raised Before You? It’s Time To Take It Down!

by Kathi Pelton

Yesterday our worship set had two songs that the Lord used like weapons of warfare in our midst. The first song was Bethel Music’s “Raise A Hallelujah” and the second song was an Elevation Worship song called “Do It Again”.

As we sang, danced and declared the words to these songs the atmosphere as was electric with a faith-filled, overcoming authority that was “raising praise higher than the mountains raised against us!”

In the song, “Raise A Hallelujah” there is a section where the words, “Sing a little louder…” are repeated again and again as the voices build. As we sang those words louder and louder; raising our voices above the voices that shouted from the mountains of opposition, it was like watching the mountain crumble before our eyes. The shadows that the mountains had cast to darken the light of truth was removed and suddenly I found myself standing on top of the mountain “raising a Hallelujah!”

Unbeknownst to me, the next song would be “Do It Again.” This song is about how God will do once again what He has done in days past. One of the lines declares these words,

“I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

You made a way, where there was no way

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again”

As we sang and declared these words corporately there was so much faith in the room. Then I heard the Lord say,

“Have everyone stand on top of the mountain of opposition that has been raised against them. Then have them raise their Hallelujahs higher and louder than all that is under their feet and watch as it crumbles.”

We did! We all used the mountains that stood before us to take us higher as we “Raised a Hallelujah” to the One who levels the mountains! We lifted Him higher and as we did He lifted us above what stood against us.

This morning I awoke with the Lord saying,

“Invite them all to join in!”

He is inviting you to put that mountain that has been raised up to oppose you under your feet and from that place to raise your Hallelujah! Declare that He will remove the mountain once again. Let your faith arise, let your song arise, let your voice be heard, let light break through…let your praise be raised higher than the mountain!

Don’t stop! Sing a little louder! Dance on it, shout from it and watch Him do it again!

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

It’s Not “Either/Or” but “Both/And”

by Kathi Pelton

So much of life with Christ is not found in an “either/or” answer or posture but rather a “both/and” agreement.

Some examples:

• Is the prayer/worship or evangelism/discipleship more important?

— It’s both/and! Prayer and worship sets the field or prepares the atmosphere so that hearts are softened and the air is clear for eyes to see and ears to hear.

• Are those who go or those who give more important?

— It’s both/and! How can people go without those who give? It’s a partnership in which we have opportunities to do both. The reward and credit is the same in God’s eyes!

• Should we battle darkness or gaze upon His beauty?

— It’s both/and! Intimacy is not left in the place of gazing when we enter the spiritual battles. It is an unbroken bond of intimacy that fights together and retreats to rest together. They are equally important.

• Should we take our homes/city or go to the other cities/nations?

—It’s both/and! As a mom I spend a lot of time with my natural family nurturing, loving and making a home where His presence abides; but I also go out to strengthen other’s children, marriages and homes. We must stay and we must go because what we build in our homes and cities become what we can bring to strengthen another’s home and city (or nation).

• Do we preach love or truth?

—Both love abs truth! The love described in 1 Corinthians 13 is the only love that is filled with truth! All other love is conditional but agape love does not demand something in return.

There are more examples then I’d ever be able to post but these are just a few. People often have a “for or against” posture or an “either/or” posture but that comes from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It creates separate camps and divisions over opinions, interpretations, human knowledge, limited understanding, different cultures, etc. The tree of life yields the sweet fruit of John 17:21. It is the unity/oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and enjoy that we have been invited into.

Though they are One in every way, we can enter into that oneness and nurture unity with our brothers and sisters by laying down our right to be right. I’m not talking about compromising convictions but acknowledging that we all see in part and carry different parts in different seasons. Every part of the five-fold is equally important and needed to see the fullness of the Kingdom established. Every part of the body is needed to perform the function that they were created for. Every expression is a revelation of a facet of His beauty. Not one of us is completely “right” in our understanding of scripture or application of scripture but God sees our hearts and the motivation of our hearts. We are clothed in His righteousness in the midst of our imperfections and even misrepresentations of His true nature. We ask for clean hands and pure hearts so that our greatest longing is to see Him receive what He died for…mankind!

Let’s move away from the either/or and for/against mindset and begin to eat of the tree of life until we see the longing of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 fulfilled.

He deserves His prayer to be answered by a people who will humble themselves before Him and one another in the only “camp” worth living in…the tent of Jesus!

“that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” John‬ ‭17:21‬ ‭

God Is For You!!

May 23.2019– Kathi Pelton

• When everything seems against you… “I am for you.”

• When the odds are stacked against you… “I will tip the scales in your favor.”

• When you feel alone and without help… “I am with you to help you.”

• When you have no answers… “I will give you wisdom & miracles.”

• When you cannot find your way… “I will carry you and comfort you.”

• When you feel too weak to carry on… “I will be the strength that you need.”

• When you face the impossible… “Remember—I make all things possible!”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans‬ ‭8:28-31‬ ‭

Are You Needing Wisdom?

by Kathi Pelton

Many in the body of Christ are in times of transitions that involve decisions that require wisdom. We always want to walk in the wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit as we proceed forward. During those times of life that require supernatural wisdom and understanding, I love to pray the scriptures because then I am praying from a “starting place” of foundational truth.

As we know from Proverbs 16:9, “We make our plans, but it is the Lord who determines our steps.” I always begin by committing my plans to the Lord and then asking Him to determine, order and establish my steps according to His wisdom and will.

From there I pray that the Spirit of the Lord would “fill me with the knowledge of His will with ALL spiritual wisdom and understanding.” The words from Colossians 1:9-11 perfectly express the longing of my heart regarding every step taken and decision made,

“…asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy…” Colossians‬ ‭1:9-11

Often during times of transition the warfare can increase; especially against our minds and emotions. The unknown can cause us to fear making a wrong decision and the enemy always uses fear as an open door for harassment. The end of the verses above say, “…be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might…” Therefore, ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with the strength that comes from the Lord’s glorious might!

Since the enemy uses fear as an entrance point to harass men and women with confusion and insecurities; I turn the tables and use fear against the enemy! I turn to the “fear of the Lord.”

Proverbs 1:7 says,

“Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.”

Ask for the fear of the Lord because that is your foundation. Walking in the fear of the Lord requires humility. You must humble yourself before the Lord and lay down human wisdom in exchange for true knowledge, wisdom and even discipline that submits to adjustments that need to be made in our lives. The fear of the Lord will displace the fears sent by the enemy to thwart your place as part of those who are advancing the Kingdom of God and declaring His good news to a world in great need. The world is looking for wisdom but it is looking in all the wrong places. As your life becomes a testimony of the fruitfulness that comes forth as you walk in His ways; we will see the world turn to the Church for wisdom and counsel.

Last, never lean on your own understanding! This will cause you to measure your decision according to sight and the standards of the world. Human understanding does not take into account the supernatural power of God to do the impossible. Proverbs 3:5-7 says,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.”

He will make your paths straight as you trust Him with all your heart and acknowledge Him in all your ways!

If you have decisions to be made, steps to be directed or the need for wisdom, start by aligning your prayers upon the foundation of His Word! Then watch as your paths are made straight and your steps are ordered of the Lord.
