2021: A Wrestle or a Dance?

By Kathi Pelton

I recently had an encounter with the Lord regarding 2021 and beyond that was both simple yet profound. In the encounter I heard the words, “It will be either a wrestle or a dance.”

Then I saw a vision of Jesus inviting his people to dance with him. I knew that he had been teaching his remnant to move in step with him in a new, more aligned way during 2020. It will be so vitally important to “let him lead” in the days ahead. The dance will be intimate, face to face, and hand in hand but his feet will lead and ours must learn to follow. There is a saying that dance instructors use that is important to remember,

“Don’t look at your feet but rather look in my eyes and your feet will follow.”

As we keep our eyes fixed upon his, our feet will easily follow.

Then I saw others who insisted on functioning the way that had always done before. They were still trying to take the lead (in their personal Christian life, in family, in ministry, in business and in government). They immediately began stepping on Jesus’ feet and getting all tangled up in his steps. What was designed to be a dance suddenly became a wrestle. It will be a much harder path for those who do not draw near and let the Lord lead.

I choose the dance and I pray that you will too! It is time to draw very near— take his hand, and fix your eyes upon his— let the dance begin.

“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭

Amen!

YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP! “It’s Time To Cross Over”

By Kathi Pelton

Last November, our family was praying about moving from Oregon to Virginia. We knew that the Lord had directed us to do this, and we knew that the timing of our move was of strategic importance. As we waited upon the Lord, a dear friend who is a part of our prayer team came to our house and brought Jeffrey and me a prophecy she had received. She saw General George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas night.

Even though we didn’t enjoy planning a cross-country relocation during the holiday season, we knew it was a genuine word from God, and we needed to be prepared to go; and we did.

But there is more to the story, and it applies to the time we all find ourselves in.

In December 1776, Washington had planned to cross the Delaware to attack a garrison of enemy troops stationed in Trenton, New Jersey. The river was frozen, and the conditions were so harsh that though Washington’s attack was to comprise three separate crossings, only one out of three could cross—and the successful vessel contained George Washington himself. Prior to the crossing, Washington’s carefully planned timetable was so badly behind schedule because of the weather that he contemplated canceling the attack.

Across the river, a spy had warned the British army that this surprise attack would take place, but the commanding general was arrogant and believed it to be another “false alarm,” so he did not prepare his troops. Washington’s crossing and surprise attack secured the Continental Army’s first major military victory of the Revolutionary War. The courageous decision by General Washington was clearly a “succeed or die” scenario.

Now, back to the prophetic word given to us regarding “crossing the Delaware”…

Jeffrey and I were in Plymouth, Massachusetts for the 400-year anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower and its pilgrim passengers carrying the Mayflower Compact. During our time, I mentioned the prophesy to a prophetic friend, and she said, “Oh, that is very prophetic; way beyond your move to Virginia.” When she said that, it hit my spirit with a clear witness that caused it to be at the forefront of my mind.

As I write this article, we are returning to Virginia from Plymouth, Massachusetts, and driving through stormy weather. Our GPS, instead of sending us the route we had taken several days earlier, instead revised our course through unexpected rural territory. We found ourselves in a tiny town in New Jersey and on a perilous one-lane bridge crossing a river. As we crossed, the sign ahead of us read “Welcome to Washington’s Crossing.”

Unknown to us, we had just crossed the Delaware River at the very location Washington had on Christmas Day in 1776. We were surprised and recognized the prophetic significance, as we were traveling in a storm, during a time that our nation is once again in a battle.

The British army was warned that the continental army would cross and attack, but its leader was arrogant and did not believe. Therefore, he was not prepared—which gave Washington the victory! I believe that our “prophetic rerouted surprise” should speak to us all. General Washington considered canceling his surprise attack because of adverse conditions. But somehow, he received courage to proceed.

I believe that this is a picture of what we face today in the United States. We are in a war for our freedom, for the upholding of our righteous foundations so we might remain “one nation under God!” Our president is in a battle with such harsh conditions surrounding him that there is surely a struggle to know whether to forge ahead or concede defeat. He is looking at an impossible crossing, but we must believe that God will put on him a spirit of courage given General Washington—or perhaps even Moses, when the Red Sea stood before him and God’s people.

The enemy is mocking with arrogance, confident of victory, but God will bring a surprise attack that will give us a much-needed triumph.

We must pray for our president to have a courage to finish what he has planned no matter what he faces! Freedom is coming to our nation. I see light and freedom coming. I believe that from now until just after Christmas, we need to battle and have courage because WE WILL CROSS OVER!

The crossing of the Red Sea with Moses and the crossing of the Delaware with General Washington are both historic accounts that speak prophetically into the times we are now living. Both crossings were successful.

Do not give up! Pray and forge ahead.

400 Year Anniversary of the Pilgrims Arriving at Plymouth

November 11 will be the 400 year anniversary of when the pilgrims arrived at Plymouth. This is a significant moment for our nation— especially as we are in the midst of such a battle to secure our Godly heritage.

The Bible is clear that God considers 400 years a spiritually significant time period. Whenever God wanted to prepare a nation for His purposes, He took 400 years.

We believe that our nation is in a completion of preparation and a fullness of time spiritually to walk in His purposes. We sense that God is asking for leaders of intercession in our nation to gather in Plymouth on this 400-year anniversary. Together we will pray, decree and establish His steps ahead.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO TAKE THIS JOURNEY TO YOUR PLYMOUTH!

Will you stand with us in prayer and by giving financial support to get us there? We have a 24-hour window to raise $1000 for travel, lodging and food. God provides for what He asks His people to do. Therefore, we know that if we are called to be there— He will provide.

If you feel to sow into this divine appointment to gather and pray in this historic place on this significant day then click on the link below.

Thank you for standing with us in our “yes” to God as we fight for our nation’s freedom and for God’s purposes to be fulfilled in our nation.

Time To Rule and Time To Occupy!

By Kathi Pelton

“There are times for the work of warfare and times for the work of ruling— now is the time for ruling.” –Larry Sparks

America— we prayed, we struck the ground, we gained the spiritual victory and now we must occupy that ground.

The government of God must now sit in the seats of authority given to us in Christ Jesus. When He ascended to His throne— we ascended into a place of authority with Him. Now we must occupy those seats and exercise our spiritual authority on earth as it is in Heaven!

This is not a time to forfeit the ground gained through assignments of “emotional defeat” (which leads to a deep physical weariness) but rather it is time to sit in the seats of victory that were gained prior to the U.S. election. God’s government has been called into session for such a time as this. The scepter has been extended— it is time to decree, time to exercise authority and time to rule from the seat of spiritual authority.

There is a spiritual “United Nations” that has gathered together to rule and reign with Christ Jesus. America is no longer standing alone but rather we stand as one with the Ecclesia of the nations of the world to decree righteousness, justice and liberty in Jesus. Together we will raise the standard of the Lord over America and over the nations. We will occupy the land that we have warred for!

Take your seats, sons of God! Touch the scepter and release the decree that delivers our nation and the nations of the world.

Esther said, “If it please the king, and if I have found favor with him, and if he thinks it is right, and if I am pleasing to him, let there be a decree that reverses the orders of Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite, who ordered that Jews throughout all the king’s provinces should be destroyed. For how can I endure to see my people and my family slaughtered and destroyed?” Esther 8:5-6

We decree:

If it pleases our King, and we have found favor in your sight, if you find it right and we are pleasing to you— let there be a decree that reverses the orders of the evil one— the Haman spirit— that has ordered the destruction of our people and of Zion. He has ordered the destruction of righteous laws and leadership in our nation. How can we endure to see our people and families slaughtered and destroyed? Decree our deliverance, King Jesus!

Just as King Xerxes responded favorably to Esther, so will our God respond to us— His bride. Esther risked everything to approach the king (without an invitation) but we have not only been invited to approach Him but invited to sit with Him and reign with Him.

We are in a “for such a time as this” point in history. It is time to occupy and decree!

A Vision of “The Lost Boys” (America)

A Vision of “The Lost Boys” (America)
Kathi Pelton

As I was waiting upon the Lord this morning, I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak to me saying, “The lost boys of America have finally found their family.” After hearing those words, I went into a vision of the colonists coming upon the shores of America, but they looked like the “lost boys” from the story of Peter Pan. In this vision they learned how to thrive on their own, to survive on their own and how to lead on their own but never were nurtured or strengthened by the beautiful design God gives of having a father and a mother. This vision went from four hundred years of “independence” to today (2020). Suddenly I saw the nations being reunited with these “lost boys” (America) and they embraced them as a father and mother would if they had been separated from their child. They wept over them, surrounded them, blessed them and committed to never let them be alone again. As this happened the lost boys shed their garments of “being lost” and they were clothed with the garments of a prince. Strength, wisdom, interdependence and sonship came upon them. The spirit of adoption also came upon them and they could move and live from a place of blessing, acceptance and love.

As a nation we are in some of the most turbulent times that we have ever experienced, I have been so honored to watch nation after nation come and weep with us, weep for us and pour out both repentance and blessings upon us. They have become one with us and us with them. It has been overwhelming to see the beauty of the body of Christ throughout the nations embrace us and commit to never let us walk alone again. From England, to Canada, to China, to Indonesia, to Russia…and so many more. They are declaring over us, “You are not alone!” I have wept more in the past few month then I have in years- not because of the chaos in our nation but because of the beauty of the nations coming to comfort us and move from cursing to blessing. The global ecclesia has become like a father and mother to us- they have surrounded us and are providing the love and nurture that we need to become all that God intended America to be.

In the midst of acts of betrayal, fraud, accusations and hatred in our streets and in those who are known as leaders in our nation, there is a higher truth and reality that is happening above it all and it is in complete contrast to the chaos. That truth is that the body of Christ throughout the nations is embracing us for the first time. As we approach the 400-year anniversary of when the Mayflower came upon our shores, I believe that we have been prepared “for such a time as this!” Throughout the Bible we see that God considers 400 years a spiritually significant time period- especially regarding the preparation of a nation. God has a plan for our nation that will bless the nations of the world. It has taken us 400 years to be spiritually prepared to walk in the fullness of His plan and it has also taken the blessing of the nations to strengthen us and become “one with us” so that we can stand up and walk in His purposes.

2020 has been our year of maturing. It has opened our eyes to see our lack, our need and to yield to our God in humility and clarity. I believe that a “spirit of adoption” has come upon us and a oneness with Christ and with His ecclesia throughout the nations. It is the birthing of the answer to the prayer Jesus prayed in John 17:20-23,

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

There could not be oneness or unity if one nation were divided from all the others- not only divided but cursed. God in His sovereignty has used this year to turn that around. What we are seeing in not mere “acts of kindness” but a sincere and deeply felt heart response to a revelation from the Lord. We were made ready and they were made ready.

“You turned my mourning into dancing; You peeled off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing Your praises and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks forever.” Psalm 30:11-12

A Significant Dream and Warning: Let Us Cut This Off Now!

By Kathi Pelton

I have waited to share this but now feel that it is time to do so. I had a dream that I need to share:

DREAM:

In the dream there were many young girls (all around the age of 18) being raised in what looked like a Roman style outdoor courtyard; yet I knew it was in America. It reminded me of Esther and the young women being prepared to meet the king. In the dream, I was one of the young women and I felt that I represented our nation. As we were in the courtyard together I saw the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, walk into it and take a seat. I wondered why he was in America and why he was watching us but decided to go about my business. After a while of him watching us young girls, he stood up and walked toward me. I felt repulsed by him as he approached. But then he handed me a small gift wrapped in white tissue paper. I reluctantly received it and unwrapped the gift. Wrapped in the tissue paper was many loose gold bracelet charms (many were letters or initials…yet not one was my initial). When I looked upon them something came over me that caused me to see him differently. Before opening the charms I was uninterested in him or his presence among us but after opening the gift I found myself fixated on him. It was as if the gift had a seducing spirit that suddenly “bewitched” me. I tried to shake it off (even dropping the charms and losing some but I retrieved most of them). He returned to his seat and patiently began watching from afar again. This went on for some time and each time I looked at him, his eyes were following my every move and I was more and more drawn to him even though it caused me shame to feel this draw. Then, once again he left his seat and began coming toward me. As he approached I somehow knew that he planned to kiss me. I also knew that to receive the kiss meant I would have to leave my Christian roots and I would be totally taken in by him (just like a king would pick his queen). Somehow I also understood that we would immediately conceive a son if I gave myself to him and I would never be free again. Yet, an unnatural draw and attraction to yield to him was overcoming all reason. The “spell” that I was under was too strong to resist and when he finally approached me, he kissed me and I knew I could not turn back.

END OF DREAM

I believe that this dream was revealing a true spirit of communism that has come into our land and is trying to seduce and bewitch the younger generation and those who will lead in the years ahead. The “charms” offered had a lustful and seductive spirit upon them that entice them to partner and join themselves to something unnatural and that causes them to leave their Christian roots and all that they have been set aside for (an Esther/Mordecai generation). This spirit is too strong for them to resist without the Ecclesia fathers and mothers intervening in prayers that bind this spirit and loose the spirit of truth.

In the dream, I was the young girl that represented America and I believe that the other young girls were other nations that would follow. It had to be me because I needed to experience the power of this spirit and how it controls many— even against their own natural resistance. I believe that many are experiencing this seducing and bewitching spirit that is causing them to leave what they know is right and good for something that they don’t have the power or self-control to overcome. Lust is at the core of it.

I have been interceding for many days since this dream occurred because it feels as though, as we approach the November 3rd election, that this spirit that resided in Kim Jong-un (in my dream) has stood up and is walking toward our nation to see if it will receive the kiss of communism. The church has authority to pull this down and we are doing so but we also must understand what we are dealing with.

It is interesting that I have been meditating on the verse from Psalm 85:10,

“Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed!”

This is the kiss that our nation is to receive but the enemy is approaching with a seducing kiss that will bring forth lust, deception, unrighteousness and war. I believe that God gave me this dream because we can pray and break the power of this bewitching spirit and declare God’s unfailing love, His truth, His righteousness and His peace. I believe that we can set our nation free from the “charms” of this false king who wants to rule over our children and their children. It is the root of communism!

I strongly encourage you to release your voice in prayer— that the fear of the Lord would overcome this assignment of lust and deception. Pray over the youth of America. Declare His truth and deliverance over our inheritance (our children) and bind the seducing spirit behind the enemy’s charms that cause them to choose their identity (remember the many initials within all the golden charms) and reject God’s design for their lives. Purity is upon this generation and that is why such a strong spirit of lust is behind this.

Pray Psalm 85 over our nation, over the youth, over the lost.

“Lord, you poured out blessings on your land! You restored the fortunes of Israel. You forgave the guilt of your people— yes, you covered all their sins. Interlude You held back your fury. You kept back your blazing anger. Now restore us again, O God of our salvation. Put aside your anger against us once more. Will you be angry with us always? Will you prolong your wrath to all generations? Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation. I listen carefully to what God the Lord is saying, for he speaks peace to his faithful people. But let them not return to their foolish ways. Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, so our land will be filled with his glory. Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed! Truth springs up from the earth, and righteousness smiles down from heaven. Yes, the Lord pours down his blessings. Our land will yield its bountiful harvest. Righteousness goes as a herald before him, preparing the way for his steps.” Psalms‬ ‭85:1-13‬

God Is Restoring Our Nation

By Kathi Pelton

On October 28th, 1886 the Statue of Liberty was dedicated and unveiled by President Grover Cleveland in the New York harbor. Today marks 134 years since this occurred. For the past five years the Lord has prompted me to look up the psalm that goes with the amount of years since that day.

Here are the words from Psalm 134,

“Oh, praise the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, you who serve at night in the house of the Lord. Lift your hands toward the sanctuary, and praise the Lord. May the Lord, who made heaven and earth, bless you from Jerusalem.” Psalms‬ ‭134:1-3‬ ‭

The Spirit said to me,

“I have heard the day and night prayers coming forth from the hearts and mouths of My people throughout America. I have seen your hands raised in both surrender and worship. Today I command this blessing over you, ‘America, receive your jubilee, receive your mercy and receive your blessing from heaven. I am your God and you are My people. I will shed My light on you.’”

God has forgiven our sins, both our historic sins and the sins of the present time. He has seen and heard those who have stood in the gap for the sins of our nation and He is declaring redemption. Mercy is falling upon us!

On the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty is a verse from a sonnet by Emma Lazarus that says,

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

The last name of the author of this sonnet is prophetic in nature as the Lord is calling us to life; awakening the heart of our nation to beat again with God’s original intent for our nation. Just as He called out, “Lazarus, come forth.” He is calling out, “America, come forth.”

Recently some national leaders gathered in the ACPR (American Center of Prayer and Revival) in Washington DC for a global trumpet call where the nations blessed and prayed for America. Many of these events have been taking place throughout the past months and it is as though the nations that once stood against us have now come to our aid and are giving us CPR. They are breathing life into our lungs and putting their hands on our hearts to cause it to beat once again— to be resurrected!

May our heart now beat again. I keep having revelations of a golden lamp being handed to the church and the last line on the pedestal of where she stands says,

“…I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

May we lift our lamp of the light of the Lord up and welcome the King of Glory into our nation. May we take up the cause of the poor and make our land a resting place for the Lord and all that He carries upon His heart.

“Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty— he is the King of glory.” Psalm‬ ‭24:7-10‬

On this day, October 28th, 2020 we dedicate our nation to be a light and lamp unto the nations and to be a resting place for the King of Glory. We welcome You, King of Glory, into the gateways of our nation. We lift up our heads to welcome you. We bow before you in honor and reverence. We declare that we will be like Lazarus— we will live again and reveal the glory of the Lord. Our heart will beat again and we will carry the lamp of first love.

May we make the name of the Lord great again in America!

Jubilee! Debts Are Being Canceled!

By Kathi Pelton

During a dream last night— that may have actually been a spiritual encounter— I was taken before the throne of God where I laid before the Lord regrets, sin and shame from issues and moments that went back twenty and thirty years ago. Many of these were things that I did not remember or had “chosen to forget” out of shame or regret in my youthfulness and immaturity. I somehow understood that these “forgotten memories” or hidden places of shortcomings, failures and sin were carrying roots of shame and regret that were still attached to my soul. They were like a debt that had chained me to a forgotten failure.

The beautiful thing was that as I brought each one before the Lord, I also brought every person that my failings had a direct result upon to be healed and set free. Though there was pain involved, there was such a beautiful release and intercession for anyone I had sinned against in my life. Though I absolutely believe that all of these sins had been forgiven long ago, the Lord (in His mercy) send an angel to usher me into a deeper place that removed the impact and harm that had come upon my soul and upon the soul of others through my past sins. It was a “jubilee for the soul!”

“…and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” Matthew 6:12

I was experiencing in this dream (or dream encounter) the cancellation of debts that had enslaved deep and hidden parts of my soul. I truly had no idea that I was carrying these old “debts.” Whether or not God saw them as debts (because He paid our debts and forgives our sins); somehow, in the deep recesses of my soul I carried them as chains (or roots) of shame.

I would normally keep an encounter like this private due to the personal nature of it but felt to share it with you because I sense that God has sent out angels to give souls a “jubilee” from regrets and debts of past failures. Again, I wasn’t even consciously aware of any of these areas nor had I even remembered most of the memories.

Since God does not remember our sins of the past that have been put under the blood of Jesus, then why did I have this encounter? I believe that it is for two reasons; the first was that these particular instances had marked my soul with a wound of shame that I was not able to deal with at the time they occurred; therefore, I received forgiveness but my soul held onto regret and shame that I needed to be set free from. The second reason is that in this dream/encounter, I was able to become aware of and intercede for all of those who “the sins of my youth” might have harmed in any way.

As I was able to bring these people before the Lord I saw angels rush to them to heal old wounds and remove spiritual scar tissue that has affected them negatively in any way; large or small. I encountered angels tending to my soul as well— to unentangle and free parts of my soul that were rooted in the shame of past sins.

God desires our freedom! Sometimes we don’t even know that we aren’t free from certain things because we’ve never experienced full freedom. Again, I had no idea that these roots of shame or regret even were buried in the recesses of my soul. Yet, just the day before I had invited God to send an angel to fully align my soul with greater freedom and greater healing.

I want to share one last thing— I did not hear or see this but there was a moment in this dream that I brought before the Lord areas of long past struggles and fears regarding provision that had caused me to make bad financial decisions (out of fear) that directly affected my family. As I brought those regrets before the Lord I had the strongest sense that many people where going to have a similar encounter that would usher in a financial jubilee as well. In December 2019 I felt that the Lord said that 2020 would be a year that many would receive their “jubilee!” I saw financial debts canceled and paid in full.

I know that my personal experience was a “jubilee of the soul” but am also expectant that we will begin to hear reports of people having a financial jubilee as well. Spiritual, emotional and financial debts will be canceled and the enslavement that is attached to “old debt” will come off; like chains falling away, so that people can walk forward in new freedom!

This is a time of reset! It is a reset for each of us personally and a reset for His people corporately. He does not want the enemy to have any inroads or access to our souls or our lives from past sins, failures, regrets or debts. He is the God of Jubilee! I declare a spiritual and financial jubilee upon each of you this day!

“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
” Psalm 118:24

Come Into The Embrace of the Overcoming One

By Kathi Pelton

While I was in worship and prayer yesterday I was suddenly encircled in the most intimate and powerful embrace I’ve have ever experienced— which immediately had me undone. As this happened I saw the “overcoming arms of Jesus” outstretched upon the cross with torn flesh and pierced hands that flowed with blood. I heard the words, “The Lamb has overcome.” Then, suddenly, I found those very arms around me, holding me in an embrace that was releasing love, mercy and overcoming authority into my life.

“But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” Psalm 3:31

His “overcoming arms” around me became like a shield— my glory— and it lifted my head with renewed confidence and courage. I immediately felt an inner-rest come upon me only came through all that He had overcome and defeated. I was no longer weary from all that I saw that needed to be defeated. It became the tangible reality of Zechariah 4:6,

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” Says the Lord of hosts.

His Spirit that is in me carries His overcoming power and authority. His Spirit was allowing me to come into the embrace of the overcoming arms that paid the price for me and defeated sin and death. He overcame all the world! It was like being embraced by the words, “For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son.” (John 3:16).

A supernatural inner rest washed over me and through me like a cleansing flood of His finished work. I was brought into the arms of the author and finisher and all striving washed away.

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Rest in Christ can be present even in the ongoing activity of the believer because it is an inner-rest that goes with you and silences demands while putting an end to striving. It wraps you in the victory and confidence of His finished work as His Spirit works through a yielded vessel. Striving ceases, fears are calmed, demands are silenced and a canopy of love comes over you like the wing of a mother hen over her chicks.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:41

He is in us, around us, before us and behind us. We have overcome because the Overcomer lives within us. The world may scream loud and demand an audience but the blood of Jesus speaks a better word and defeated the voices of threat and accusation. So we can rest in Him— our Risen King.

“Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:51

Come and find rest in the arms of the One who has overcome. Yield to His arms of love that will anoint you with His overcoming authority and seat you in Heavenly places where you will reign with Him forever.

Because He has overcome— you have overcome! Victory is yours.

“To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” Revelation 3:21

October: A Month To Cry Out For Mercy

Yesterday our church family was blessed to have Jonathan Tremaine Thomas (JT) from Civil Righteousness with us. During our time together he shared a profound dream about this time that we are living in and then shared these words,

“Our nation is under judgement and is on the brink of another civil war where there will surely be blood in our streets. But, we need to remember that we can cry out to God the words, ‘In judgement— remember mercy!’ This is our only hope for America. Cry out for mercy!”

I fully agree with JT’s words. I believe that October is a month to “cry out for mercy” like never before. As he spoke the words I saw in my spirit people in cities across our nation marching in unity and oneness, while crying out for mercy. I saw the words, “Mercy Marches.”

My family lives in a city where the most blood was spilled in the Civil War (Fredericksburg, Virginia) and our home is located on a Civil War Battlefield. I do not believe that it is a mistake or coincidence that God moved our family across the nation in January 2020 to occupy this ground with intercession and peace. From this place we will continuously cry out for “mercy to triumph over judgement!” No longer will we be a nation of brother against brother but rather we will link arms with our brothers and sisters to “be one even as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one!”

I want to encourage you, wherever you are, to prayer walk the streets of your city, to call to the Ecclesia in your city and to bow your knee and ask God to render a verdict of mercy upon our nation. I believe that there is a short window left before we see a real life civil war break out if we do not turn the heart of God through cries of mercy.

We are seeing many initiatives in our nation that have been gathering the Ecclesia to repent, worship, return and humble ourselves to pray. We were at “The Return” in Washington D.C. (and the Franklin Graham Prayer Walk)— I could feel a shift during this time. I was with Sean Feucht in Portland, Oregon and will be again here in Washington DC on October 25th. Around the nation God’s people are striking the ground over and over. My sense is that October is the final strike to turn the tide from judgement to mercy. Let us pray and cry out like never before!

“I have heard all about you, LORD. I am filled with awe by your amazing works. In this time of our deep need, help us again as you did in years gone by. And in your anger, remember your mercy.” Habakkuk 3:2 (NLT)

God loves mercy, He loves justice and He loves America. But because of His righteous justice, He brings forth judgement. Though God never changes— did you know that His people can change His mind from executing judgement to pouring out mercy? This is a time that we, His people, can turn a nation to be “saved in a day!”

Today— cry out for mercy! Do not delay but rather raise your voice, bow your knee and walk your city to cry out for mercy. It is time for “Mercy Marches” to take place across our nation!
