April’s Open Door

By Kathi Pelton

As I waited upon the Lord I saw the month of April before me. A wind blew upon it and it suddenly became an open door into a beautiful fragrant garden that brought an immediate sense of hope and joy to my soul.

As this April door blew open I heard the verse from Song of Solomon 4:16,

Awake, north wind! Rise up, south wind! Blow on my garden and spread its fragrance all around. Come into your garden, my love; taste its finest fruits.

I saw the wind as the breath of God, the Ruach— as his breath was released upon his sons and daughters— new life, even resurrection life, came upon them. A fragrance, like a garden in full bloom, came forth from them that filled the earth. I saw each son and daughter take their place as a part of this garden that was filled with fragrant blossoms and sweet fruits. The smell went beyond the garden into the world.

When I saw this I was suddenly aware that most of the world had lost their sense of smell and their sense of taste (just like what happens when many contract Covid). They had lost their sense of smell and taste for God. The Lord created every man and woman with the senses to seek after him but the thief had stolen their senses.

When the wind blew this door open, not only did God’s children come into full bloom but the fragrance and taste of the Lord upon their lives began to awaken the senses of those who had lost their senses.

I saw prodigals returning as they “came to their senses.” I saw “seekers” suddenly finding their scent and finding what they were seeking. They were like dogs who had been following a scent but had lost it and were walking in circles— but suddenly they found the scent once again and it led them to salvation.

I saw many of God’s sons and daughters longing for passion and purpose. When this wind blew, it awakened them like a wind coming upon a smoldering ember that was very near to going out. But this wind caused it to turn bright amber with the glow and burning of his love and presence. Suddenly the dry and barren place that they had been in caught fire and they burned with passion and purpose to carry his glory, his fragrance and his fire. They became a great fire that could not be contained.

Fragrance, fruit and fire will mark the days ahead as we walk through the open door of April. The breath (wind) of God will sovereignly open this door and it will be like when the stone was rolled away from the tomb of our Savior. His Ecclesia will come forth with fragrance, fruitfulness and great fire. Resurrection power will be upon us once again.

Where much of the world viewed the church as a tomb with a stone at its entrance— they will begin to see an open door that is releasing the scent that they have longed for and they will find the treasure that they have been searching for. No longer will it be a place that represents dead works but it will be a garden of life full of the choicest fruits and a fire that will ignite passion and purpose within them. Even tongues of fire will fall once again and salvation will fall upon people as they merely walk into the fragrant atmosphere.

Altars will be so full in the days to come that his people will create altars in barns, tents, fields, farms, parking lots and even in theaters. Living rooms will become altars where salvation comes to the young and the old. Even front yards will become churches where entire neighborhoods are transformed by the fire falling upon them.

“Not by power, not by might but by my Spirit” says the Lord
Zechariah 4:6

Begin to call for the wind of the Spirit to blow! Call for the fire of the Spirit to fall and to ignite! Call for the the Spirit and the bride to say, “Come!”

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let anyone who hears this say, “Come.” Let anyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who desires drink freely from the water of life.
Revelation 22:17

Come, north wind! Rise up, south wind! Blow on my garden and spread its fragrance all around!

The 3333 Link Between The First Colony and The First Passover!

By Kathi Pelton

THIS CAUGHT MY ATTENTION TODAY! IT MAY BE A KEY FOR THE UNITED STATES!

Today, on Passover, Virginia announced that we have 3,333 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus. It is also, according to the Hebrew calendar, 3,333 years since the first Passover.

I felt the Lord quicken this to me and felt a correlation between Virginia being the first established colony (the firstborn) and the first Passover that saved the firstborn of the Israelites. Virginia, on a governmental level, has turned away from God and yet the Ecclesia is rising in prayer, worship and first love like never before. A fragrance is arising out of the state of Virginia. The state slogan is “Virginia Is For Lovers” and the lovers of Jesus are arising. She is the “firstborn” of the New World (first established colony) and God wants to save the firstborn!

Let’s all stand with the State of Virginia on this Passover and watch our first colony be the key to Passover! Let us see what happened 3,333 years ago happen once again!! Virginia is also the 10th State and it was on the 10th of Nissan that the unblemished lamb was brought into the houses of the Israelites. It is interesting that this is the 10th State in the Union because since I awoke this morning I began hearing the words from Hebrews 10:10 that say,

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

This state is the doorway to Washington DC; it’s where the international airport for those flying into Washington DC is located (as you leave the airport you enter DC). Arlington, Virginia is a doorway or gateway. As we declare the finished and completed work of Blood of Yeshua upon the doorposts of Virginia may it cause the death to pass by Washington DC and our nation. The Passover was to protect the firstborn and Virginia was the firstborn colony in our nation. It is the birthplace of our first president and it is a key place in this hour.

Pray— declare— and speak the blood of our Passover Lamb to be upon the doorway of Virginia.

For such a time as this!!

Separation Has Brought Us Together— We Are Becoming One!

By Kathi Pelton

When we say that God’s ways are not our ways we truly aren’t kidding! Who could have ever guessed that the thing that was sent to separate us would be used to unite us like never before?

I have never seen so many nations, generations and denomination coming together day after day on ZOOM calls, FB Lives, online worship and prayer meetings! And as I’m sure that you’ve noticed; these are not quick “on the surface” times but they are deep, beautiful and life changing times together.

In the Fall of 2019 the Lord took me into a vision where I saw demons playing cards around a poker table and they had become so confident in their winning streak that they were about to put all their chips in the pot— betting it all in one hand. But in this vision the enemies cheating hand was about to be exposed and “he would overplay his hand” causing a great victory for God’s people and a great defeat for the enemy. The plunder would be transferred to God’s people.

This “separation” has definitely overplayed his hand and suddenly the enemy is losing at the hand he bet on! The body of Christ is rising up in her identity, they are coming together as one family now that there are no church walls or denominational names to divide them. Together they are repenting, changing, partaking of communion and giving generously in the midst of their time of need. What the enemy meant for harm is now healing His Ecclesia and making us one.

You can no longer get lost in a crowd because the crowds are gone and we are seeing each other with new eyes, new longings and new alignments. I keep hearing people speak the words, “We are all in this together.” And it is so true! The Aw entire world has been drawn into home, into family and into a church that has no walls, no denominational affiliation and no end. You can wake up anytime of the night and join with believers from around the world to worship or pray. While the family of God has been quarantined behind the doors of her homes she has begun the greatest outreach we’ve ever seen. Social media has opened the doors to our homes, our lives and our families where all are welcome.

I have probably wept more with the family of a God from around the world these past few weeks then in a long time. I’ve wept for joy at His goodness and His kindness as He unites our hearts. His bride is so beautiful! She is returning to First Love!

As Passover has begun I feel the awe of God as we have responded to Jesus knocking again the doors of our hearts and homes— we have let Him come in. He is ridding our hearts of unneeded things and making room for His communion table to be set. His blood has been placed upon the entrances (doorway) of our hearts and lives as we’ve allowed the finished work of the cross to be the center once again.

This morning as I was awakening from a dream I saw the Lord come and put His blood upon our foreheads, our hands and our feet. All the places that were pierced when He gave His life for us were being touched by the pure and perfect Passover Lamb’s blood; who has once and for all caused eternal death to pass us by.

As I saw this I felt a deep longing to go to every member of our family and take some of the juice from my communion cup and put a drop of it on their foreheads, their hands and their feet as an act of coming into agreement and announcing that we are covered with the blood of mercy (the Passover Lamb) that has made us clean once and forever! No plague (which in Hebrew is translated as “virus”) can separate us from the love of God or the eternal life purchased for us by Yeshua.

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

What the enemy meant to separate and divide us has brought forth a greater oneness with Christ and with one another then we have ever experienced before this time. We do not forget the fact that lives have been lost and we grieve with those who grieve. But we cannot overlook the beautiful fragrance coming forth from the homes and lives of His people.

Yesterday, Bill Johnson was on an online gathering with our global family and he described how when you go into a jewelry store to purchase a diamond ring the jeweler will lay it upon a piece of black velvet because when a diamond is presented against a backdrop of darkness and then light is shone in it— it’s brilliance is displayed best.

The Lord is suddenly placing His Bride on display against a backdrop of global darkness and shining the light of His sovereignty, His love and His adoration upon her and “she is radiant and brilliant.” She is all together lovely! Her different facets are shining with the brilliance of a cut diamond.

I just want to take this moment to say to each of you; you have taken my breath away! Seeing your faces, the worship from your living rooms, and reading your words of devotion to God have been the greatest non-stop church service I’ve ever attended! Thank you! My “face time” with God has become all the more rich because I have been face to face with you. The worship of the nations has drawn me back to first love!

Thank you to all who have stood with our family and ministry during this time! No words can express our gratitude!

The Lamb Is In The House

By Kathi Pelton

Today is the 10th day of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar, which is the last Sabbath prior to Passover. Why is this significant? This is the day that during the captivity of the Israelites in Egypt God asked them to pick a spotless lamb (one without blemish) and to bring it into the house. This lamb would reside with the family over the next few days before “becoming the Passover lamb” who’s blood would be placed upon the doorposts of their home and cause the angel of death to pass by; sparing their first born sons.

There are a few points I’d like to highlight regarding this significant day where we remember the “lamb being brought into the house.”

First, during the time of captivity in Egypt the lamb was an Egyptian idol. Many of the Israelites had come under the belief system of Egypt during the 400 years of captivity and had adopted their idols as their own. Therefore, to use a lamb, especially a spotless lamb, for the sacrifice was to break the idolatry within the hearts of the Israelites prior to their deliverance from Egypt. It was also a statement where God is announcing to the “gods of Egypt” that He alone is God.

The lamb being brought into the house to “live among them” is such a beautiful prophetic picture of how Jesus, the spotless Lamb, would come and live among us prior to becoming the sacrifice that would cause eternal death to pass by us– offering us a way to eternal life and freedom from captivity.

The 10th of Nissan was when the lamb came to live with families. What a beautiful picture of the Lamb of God who came to restore His family. I am sure that the children of the home must have played with this little lamb and enjoyed the presence of this lamb during it’s few short days inside of the home. Even today, His presence is to be enjoyed and received by the young and old alike. Who doesn’t think that a lamb is so very precious? Earlier this year the Lord told me that very soon we would see infants “entertained by His presence.” I literally saw babies in the cribs giggling and being entertained by His playful and glorious presence being made manifest to them.

During this year, the Passover season is especially recognized. Never before has the entire Earth had a “plague” or pandemic that has caused the whole human population to be asked to go behind closed doors and stay with their families. I am praying and declaring that as this is occurring that suddenly families would see “the Spotless Lamb- Jesus our Savior” in their homes and they would receive Him. I am praying this for both the homes of the Believers and the homes of those who have not recognized that Jesus is the One who saves. He is their Passover Lamb.

I declare over every home and every family- “The Lamb is in the house!” Declare these words in your home and over your family. Let His presence fill your home and bring joy to your children. Yes, the very Lamb that came to dwell among us was sacrificed for our sins but He rose again and is alive forevermore. He once again is in our house to never again leave. He will never leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5).

The Lamb is in the house! The blood of Abel cried out, “Justice” but the Blood of Jesus cries out, “Mercy!” His blood speaks a better word! Mercy triumphs over judgement once again.
