All Who Are Thirsty, Weak & Weary

By Kathi Pelton

As I woke up this morning and began to wait upon the Lord it was like an audible song began to play in the atmosphere around me (although no music was actually playing). I immediately recognized the words to the song, “All Who Are Thirsty”— here are the words that I was hearing,

All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the stream of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of His mercy
As deep cries out to deep (we sing)
Come Lord Jesus come

As these words flowed like a stream of refreshing water through my soul I clicked on Facebook and the first post to show was from a precious prophetic friend who wrote a post about rest and concluded with this scripture,

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”” Matthew‬ ‭11:28-30‬ ‭

Throughout the time of quarantine and even through the past weeks of great unrest in our nation I have felt constant strength and grace to run the race and press into all that the Lord was asking and doing. I have had a tremendous grace upon my life throughout this ever-changing season. But about two weeks ago a weariness began to hit my soul. Because we live in the Washington DC region I wondered if it was just the spiritual atmosphere from so much continuous warfare over our nation or if it was something personal? Either way— I was weary!

I decided to press and stand against the weariness and yet the more the more weary I became. It was as if burdens too heavy to carry would come upon me and they would weary me even more. Then I watched it hitting others around me…such a deep, heavy weariness!

Then, last night we had some new friends over to our home and during our time together our gentleman guest began to minister to our daughter regarding the subject of weariness. He told her a story about surfing and learning to rest after the long, hard paddle out to where the waves are good. He said that he had to learn to rest after the exhausting paddle because if he tried to catch a wave while weary from the trek to deeper waters then the wave would end up taking him under. But— when he’d take the time to rest— when it was time to catch the wave he would be able to ride it all the way back to shore with ease. As he spoke these words a vibrant double rainbow appeared over our home and remained for a long time. As I looked upon this rainbow and thought about the rest he was speaking of, I heard the Lord say,

“I promise not to overwhelm you or flood you with that which will take you under. Rest in me and ride the waves of mercy to my shores of grace and victory.”

Many of you have had a long journey of “swimming and paddling hard!” Your strength is depleted and you need to take time to rest. You are now positioned to catch the wave that will take you higher and further then you have ever known but first you must rest. You are being invited into Matthew 11,

“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

He will take the burdens that are too heavy for you to carry and he will teach you to rest and to come to him where his gentleness will comfort and soothe your weary and storm tossed soul. It is there that you will receive the light yoke that will allow you to ride the wave of mercy that you are about to catch.

The battle belongs to the Lord! Yes, you have a part in the battle but if you do not stop to rest (and release the heavy burdens) then you will be taken under by the wave that is coming. Rest will enable you to ride it and not be swallowed by the force of it. The wave will either take you higher or take you under but the key is resting in Him and allowing heavy burdens to be removed from your shoulders. This wave is to bring His people higher while drowning the enemy who does not know how to rest.

If you are thirsty, weak and weary then rest at His table— eat the riches of all that He has set before you and be strengthened. Let His wisdom and thoughts become yours.

““Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink— even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to me, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. “Come to me with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life. I will make an everlasting covenant with you. I will give you all the unfailing love I promised to David. See how I used him to display my power among the peoples. I made him a leader among the nations. You also will command nations you do not know, and peoples unknown to you will come running to obey, because I, the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, have made you glorious.”” Isaiah‬ ‭55:1-5‬

Isaiah 55 then goes on to say this,

““My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬ ‭

Often we think that when the battle is raging we must jump in with all of our strength to defeat the great enemy before us. But we must remember that God’s ways are not our ways and there are times that the greatest weapon in the fight before us are the weapon of rest and trust, dependency and stillness, hope and faith.

During this time don’t forget how God used Gideon’s army! God reduced their numbers so low that it appeared to be a sure defeat against such a vast and mighty enemy. Then God had them put torches in jars and carry ram’s horns (trumpets) as their only weapons as they descended upon the enemy’s camp while it was still dark. Then they broke the clay jars to reveal their torches of light and blew they the ram’s horns. The enemy was so surprised that they turned on themselves in the chaos and Gideon’s army watched as they were defeated by their own hand.

“It was just after midnight, after the changing of the guard, when Gideon and the 100 men with him reached the edge of the Midianite camp. Suddenly, they blew the rams’ horns and broke their clay jars. Then all three groups blew their horns and broke their jars. They held the blazing torches in their left hands and the horns in their right hands, and they all shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” Each man stood at his position around the camp and watched as all the Midianites rushed around in a panic, shouting as they ran to escape. When the 300 Israelites blew their rams’ horns, the Lord caused the warriors in the camp to fight against each other with their swords. Those who were not killed fled to places as far away as Beth-shittah near Zererah and to the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.” Judges‬ ‭7:19-22‬ ‭

Three hundred men who obeyed God’s ways with weapons of light and sound defeated a vast army that processed weapons that could have defeated an army of thousands. The battle and the wisdom belongs to the Lord! His ways are higher.

So…rest, wait, eat, drink and listen. Let go of the burden as you look upon an enemy that is too big for you. God reduced Gideon’s army from thousands to a few hundred so that no man could boast that it was by their power or strength that defeated the enemy army…but by God alone!

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty Zechariah 4:6

A great wave of mercy is approaching and it will bury the but you must rest so that you can ride the wave and not be taken under by it. His ways are not our ways and His weapons are not the weapons of man. You may feel that your light is in a jar (hidden) and your sound is not being heard at this time— but the time is coming where the jars will break and the sound of the shofars are blown! Rest and wait— the time of deliverance is coming. A wave of mercy is coming that will defeat the enemy that has come against God’s people!

“Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the stream of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
In the waves of His mercy
As deep cries out to deep
Come Lord Jesus come”

Time To Align

By Kathi Pelton

When I was a child, every Saturday my siblings and I were required to thoroughly clean our rooms. One time I remember not wanting to clean so I took all the clothes that had been scattered through my room and threw them on my closet floor. Then I took the papers, books and homework and shoved them in my desk drawers in a haphazard way. Finally I took everything else and just pushed it under my bed to hide it from sight. After vacuuming and dusting I called my mom to let her know that I was done. She walked in (probably realizing that it was too soon for me to have properly cleaned) and when she saw a “seemingly” immaculate room she became suspicious and opened my closet door. Of course my hidden mess poured out and what didn’t fall out tossed out by her. Then she headed to my bed and lifted the bedspread to look under it and the true hidden mess and deception was revealed. Everything was thrown out and my room looked worse than before I had begun.

I thought of this memory as I’ve observed the state of our nation.

Less than six months ago everything looked clean, in order and right but suddenly something came and opened our closet doors and pulled out all that was hidden from sight and suddenly we have a bigger mess than before.

But, just like when I was a child and hid my mess— nothing was actually cleaned at all. The mess in our nation was merely hidden from sight. Most didn’t want to deal with it or see it exposed because we don’t like “mess.” We had learned to live contently without uncovering the mess or exposing all that was hidden.

When my mess was exposed (as a child) I was forced to truly clean it up; to bring order and alignment to every area. But first everything had to be pulled out from the hidden places and exposed. That is where we are at.

So, God first began with His bride. From March through May God opened the door of our hearts and exposed the clutter and mess that was keeping us from making room for Him. Many in the body of Christ took these months to get our hearts clean and make room for Him. Remember, God always looks for a remnant to work through.

Once He had cleaned, prepared and aligned His remnant’s hearts it was time to pull out everything under the bedrock of our nation. Yes, it’s a mess and it’s all been pulled out and thrown into the light for all to see. Although it may not feel like “our mess”— we need to know that it is the mess we knew existed and yet did not want to look at or even know what to do about. Now it is laid out for all to see and it is the Church that will be given authority and wisdom regarding what to do to bring it back into divine order.

We can’t just push it back under the bed or hide it behind closed doors because it’s already been exposed. We must begin the step by step process of cleaning it up.

We need the help of our Father because it’s quite honestly too big of a job for us! But…He is happy to give wisdom and hold the plumb line that will reveal alignment. We must ask for wisdom and be willing to steward the clean up process.

We may wish that we could just go back to the way it was before 2020 but to have 20/20 vision and to make decrees that establish righteousness, we first needed to know what was hidden from sight.

It can be better than it was before! If we will go before the mercy seat and then follow His lead, then we won’t merely have the appearance of being clean but purity can be established— even in the hidden places.

Exposure is good when it is exposing that which is unclean. We must all begin the work but first we must align with God’s heart and His steps to lay down personal agendas and picking up heavenly blueprints that draw us into the oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:21-23,

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”
‭‭
We may have to lay down names, titles, brands and differences to come into the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and sweet it come upon the church.

I am praying for His plumb line to come and for His bride to yield to the true alignment of Heaven.

Let us lay everything at the feet of the One who is worthy and release the perfume of oneness over His feet so that it fills the atmosphere with “Christ in us.”

God is aligning hearts, He is aligning His remnant church and He is aligning together those who will be entrusted to carry out His purposes in humble surrender as well as confident authority in His leadership. We serve a humble king who is searching for those who will lead and serve as He does.

Pray for a holy alignment to continue and to usher us into the oneness that causes “the world to know.” May all that has been exposed now be made clean by our God and His faithful remnant.

Perfect love is the alignment. Like Bob Jones was asked when He was taken to heaven, “Did you learn to love?” Let us ask for reformed lives that align with His love.

Targeted Cities of Violence Becoming Pools of Healing

By Kathi Pelton

Every Sunday evening I have a prayer call with a group of people from the Washington DC region to pray for our nation, our leaders and whatever the Spirit speaks to us as we wait upon Him. Last night we had a powerful time of prayer in the midst of all of the pain and rage happening throughout our nation.

During our time praying the Spirit kept turning my attention to the cities that have been targeted for violent riots and destruction. First I was led to begin to declare a new name over these cities (and over our nation) as the verse from Isaiah 62:2-4 flowed through my spirit,

The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by the Lord’s own mouth. The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see— a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride.”
‭‭
The Lord asked me to begin to declare over our nation and over these cities— where violence has erupted— that the Lord will change their name from “Forsaken” or “Desolate” to “The Cities of God’s Delight.”

Then I was taken into a vision where these cities were pools of stagnant water with the blind, deaf and lame (spiritually disabled) laying all around them. But suddenly angels descended upon these cities and began to “stir the waters” and when they did this the people, who had gathered there with many “spiritual diseases” began to see, hear and rise up and walk. They could see that Jesus is the only Savior, they could hear that He is the hope that they had been looking for and suddenly they could rise up from their lame posture and run to Him.

“…for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.” John 5:4

The diseases of deception; hopelessness, rage, murder, anarchy and rebellion were suddenly healed and captives were being set free.

It is time to stand in the cities where violent riots have broken out and call forth the angels to come and stir the stagnant waters so that they become healing pools. It is time to declare over our nation and these cities their new name, “Cities of God’s Delight!”

May the very ones who go to these cities to bring destruction and hate suddenly find their feet in a pool that heals them and sets them free from the disease of deception. May they encounter the living God and become repairers of the breaches.

Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Nashville, Los Angeles, New York, Salt Lake City, Cleveland, Raleigh, Louisville and more— call upon the angel of their Lord to come and stir the waters of your city and make it a pool of healing. Declare that their names, “Forsaken and Desolate” are no more but that God calls them by a new name! Declare the new name over your city.

What the enemy has meant for evil God will turn for good and for healing. Do not despair, do not bow low in hopelessness but rise up and see the salvation of the Lord come to our nation and to these cities!

You Can Find Rest In The Midst of Unrest

This was the word that I released in December 2019 as my 2020 Word! During this time of “unrest” in our nation, REST is a key word for our victory!!

“By My Spirit” in 2020: A Decade of Rest
By Kathi Pelton

“So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty Zechariah 4:6

Each time I see the numbers 2020 I see this verse overlaid upon it. As I have prayed into the decade ahead, there are two of the things that the Lord has highlighted to me:

• The sovereignty of God will be displayed throughout the earth.

• Resting in His sovereignty will be where victories are won.

As I was praying into these two things the Lord began to highlight an interesting item in the new house that my family moves into across the nation (in the Washington DC region) as a prophetic sign. That “interesting item” is that this house has an elevator!! What?! No, we are not moving into a mansion but it was built as a model home for the community it is in and they put everything that was offered into it. An elevator for the three floors is one of those options. We are giving the option of laboring to get somewhere or resting in “by His Spirit” to take us higher.

As I listened to the Lord for the meaning of this elevator I saw Jacob’s ladder and felt that there would be an ease about going up to the heavenly places and then an ease in returning with the revelation given. There will be a lot of going up and coming back down beginning in the new year. This will be the source of keeping us out of constant “ups and downs” in our souls.

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1

The invitation and the open door is before you! The key to entering in is resting in the sovereignty of God. “Not by night, not by power but by His Spirit!”

Just as I was pondering this “elevator prophetic sign” Patricia King, who raised me up and mentored me as a prophetic voice, released a word and encounter regarding going up in the ease of an elevator to receive deeper revelation!! This was such a confirmation for me (you can find that word on The Elijah List from 12/30).

As our family prepares to move next week to the Washington DC region (we will be in Virginia) I found myself getting emotionally prepared for a battle. Everyone that we know who has arrived there has had to face great battles. I found myself figuring out all sorts of ways to prepare spiritually, mentally and emotionally. It was like a subconscious preparation. As this was happening the Lord interrupted me. He said, “Kathi, what are you doing? Do you not know that resting in Me is the key to your victory?”

As He spoke those words I remembered the verse from Zechariah 4:6 and then the phrase that says, “It takes two to fight” kept going through my mind.

The enemy will try to pull you into “fight mode” because the past decade as been a “warring decade.” We have becomes more familiar with the battle than the rest of God. It’s what we’ve known and what we are familiar with but it’s time to change our “default” from battle to rest.

As we have laid down all that we have known to enter into the new we need to know that the key to victory in the next decade is spiritual rest. It is an abiding trust, peace and rest that does not engage in the provocation of the enemy that is designed to pull you out of rest and into war. I don’t exactly know what that will look like but I trust that He will teach us. This will not be lethargy or inactivity but rather a spiritual rest in His sovereignty. It’s a posture in your spirit that aligns your soul. There will be battles but the battle belongs to the Lord and will be won through the rest of the Lord.

I learned many years ago that supernatural peace was the key to my personal warfare being defeated (which you can read about in my 30 Days to Breakthrough: Stepping into Peace book). Where there is peace there is no fear or warfare! But this rest will take us deeper and it will be the one thing that the enemy cannot fight. You will be like a warrior of rest.

Then I came across a word by Bob Jones that I had never seen before, it is all about 2020-2029 and rest! Here is that word,

“The 2020’s will reveal the ‘Rest’ of God, to where the Body will come into a place of resting in God, where God will rest in us. And in this rest, the enemy will not be able to do warfare, because we are resting in God and He is resting in us. He will accomplish the things He means to do in a people that is at rest. He has always wanted a people that will come into His rest; there never has been one but rest is on the way.” Bob Jones

Rest is on the way!

“…but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Hope and rest will be closely tied together. They walk hand in hand. If rest is the key to victory then hoping in the Lord is the key to rest. Hopelessness will drain and exhaust you and battling in the way you have in the past will merely bring you into a war against hope.

Lay down you weapons of the past decade and pick up the spiritual weapons of the next decade which are rest, hope, trusting in His sovereignty, and accepting the invitation to “Come up here.”

I hear the “ding” of the elevator arriving and the doors opening to take you up. You will receive revelation and impartation about true rest for your souls and true spiritual rest. This will bring you much healing from the traumas of battle from the past decade.

The doors are now opening…enter in!

WATCH AS THE CHAOS SENT AGAINST YOU SUDDENLY BRINGS YOU INTO DESTINY

By Kathi Pelton

-I wrote this a year ago but felt the Spirit ask me to re-share it with you. –

I was taken into a vision where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos and distraction being sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it completely caught them off guard.

I’m from Northern California where the coastline is known for what are called, “sneaker waves.” These are very large and powerful waves that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline. These sneaker waves a known for pulling someone from the shallows or a person walking on the rocks out into the turbulent sea.

This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It may feel like you were wading in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him upon shores of grace—then, suddenly you are caught by a sneaker wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the raging sea.

In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos of this sneaker wave struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person who was being pulled under and drowning. As I saw this I saw the Lord with them and heard Him speak these words,

“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”

When someone is drowning, the worst thing that they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax into full dependency upon the one who has come to save them, the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.

The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. Fear may have been blinding you from seeing Him but know this; He is there to rescue and save you.

As the vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They began to relax into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to the shore. Yet it was not the shore that they began upon but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny. A new place that they had not ever been to before.

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us. This is happening for many right now. We all know from scripture that when the enemy comes in—like a flood— the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

Years ago the Lord told me to be aware that the demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos and robs men of peace. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. He and his army fall into absolute chaos and confusion— and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven but chaos and fear attract the hosts of hell.

If you have been caught by a spiritual “sneaker wave” that has pulled you into its grip; threatening to pull you under and drown you— then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust Him in the turbulent sea. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the new shores of glory where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

The Alabaster Wineskin

By Kathi Pelton

For two months now I have been seeing in my spirit the new wineskin but had no words to describe what I was seeing other than to say it was seamless and the word, “Oneness” was the best representation of what I was seeing.

Then, yesterday I was caught completely by surprise when the Lord took me into an encounter where I saw this new wineskin up close. Rather than it looking like a wineskin made from goat skin this one was alabaster! The new wine that was being poured into it was from the liquid fragrance and perfume that came forth from oneness with Him and one another that was now prepared and being poured out.

I saw this perfume filling this alabaster wineskin that will once again be poured over the feet of Jesus by His bride— filling the atmosphere of the earth with the fragrance of oneness. Then the world will know!

“I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” John‬ ‭17:23‬ ‭

This fragrance of oneness will fill the atmosphere and prepare the world for His return— bringing in the great harvest. The world is longing for the revelation of oneness and it’s fragrance.

For those transformed by this oneness— no longer will theological opinions and differences separate us, denominations or ministry banners will no longer separate us, race and social status will not separate us, borders and oceans will not separate us…for God has drawn us into a oneness and I hear the same words that are spoken when a man and women are married, “What God has joined, no man can separate!” Just as nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, nothing can separate us from the oneness He is creating within His bride with one another.

Still, I was wondering how a wineskin and alabaster could be joined. I asked the Lord that question and when I did I saw His Bride and I heard the words, “Just look at her alabaster skin— so pure, soft and transparent.”

I had forgotten that often we will refer to a person or baby as having alabaster skin. This is what alabaster skin means,

“If you say that someone has alabaster skin, you mean that their skin is very beautiful because it is so white and smooth.”

Then I heard the verse,

“…that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians‬ ‭5:27‬

Is the bride the alabaster wineskin and her oneness with God and one another the perfume that fills it and is poured over the Bridegroom’s feet— filling the earth with the glory of the Lord? Is this how the world will know? Has this quarantine been the hidden chambers where the bride is dressed and prepared for all to see?

I am undone by the beauty of what the Lord is doing! Only He could do such a glorious thing. The Lord had spoke to me that 2020 would have the theme, “Not by might, not by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord. This is surely proving to be true! Thank you Spirit if God for doing in us that which we could not do for ourselves. We love you!

May Is A Time To Blossom! June Is A Time of Revealing!

By Kathi Pelton

The word “blossom” has been one of my quarantine words. Why? Well, as we all began to cover our faces and separate from one another I began to see a picture emerging of a flower bud—closed and hidden—then, as the earth slept it opened up in all of it’s beauty and brilliance for all to see— to be unmasked.

I believe that we are in the end of a long night where we went to sleep only seeing signs of Spring and signs of the budding of flowers but as the dawn is beginning to awaken on this quarantine and we are able to come face to face with one another once again…we will see that the bride has blossomed!

Even as I have connected online with His people around the world, I have seen an awakening and transformation— a blossoming! It is like a beautiful garden has been unlocked and revealed in all of its splendor and beauty. The flowers have appeared and the fragrance is like the perfume that filled the room when poured over the feet of Jesus.

I love to watch the Spring bulbs as they come up out of the ground and the buds appear. I am filled with anticipation for the unveiling of the beauty hidden within. Then, each year I will go to bed one night with only buds and the next morning wake up to see that they have blossomed! It is like a prince came and kissed each one during the night and they opened their eyes and arose to display their beauty and to release their fragrance.

This is what is happening with the bride! Before this global shut down we were a bud just waiting to be kissed by the Son and awakened. But suddenly the night is coming to a close and we have received our kiss and are in full bloom. We are in the newness of morning.

The bride is like the Shulamite in the Song of Songs that has now responded to her Beloved and is ready to run with Him. This time has nurtured the beauty of oneness with Christ which creates oneness with each other. John 17:23 says that this oneness will reveal to the world who Jesus truly is,

“I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”
‭‭

Perfect unity is oneness— this is seen in the earthly covenant of marriage as the two become one flesh. It is like the intermingling of two fragrances becoming one— two blossoms becoming one.

Get ready to be intoxicated by the fragrance of the Bride and her Bridegroom. The beauty of oneness has blossomed but it will not only last for a short season but this garden is an eternal one with no end.

Can you see the dawn awakening? Can you smell the fragrance of what has blossomed? Can you feel the anticipation of the Father to reveal the bride as she has been prepared?

May is the month of blossoming and June is the month of revealing— get ready for a Holy intoxication of beauty!

“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
Psalm 126:5-6

As I meditated on these two verses the Lord highlighted the portion that says, 𝑇ℎ𝑜𝑠𝑒 𝑤ℎ𝑜 𝑔𝑜 𝑜𝑢𝑡 𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑝𝑖𝑛𝑔, 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑟𝑦𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑠𝑒𝑒𝑑𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑠𝑜𝑤. I suddenly was overcome by the pleasure of the Lord for His sons and daughters as they chose to sow seeds in the midst of their tears. I could feel how proud He is of His children who are pushing past their personal pain to sow seeds of worship, obedience, truth, finances, encouragement and honor.

Though many of these precious ones have slept upon pillows soaked with their own tears, they still make a choice to face the morning by sowing seeds that bring honor and pleasure to the heart of God. They know that He alone is worthy of all honor; even in the midst of their personal pain.

The enemy may work hard to cause shame and pain but God has a promise for you,

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7

What appears now to be losses will soon prove to be your season of multiplication. Many prophetic voices are hearing the words, “Double for your troubles” and I believe this to be true. Negatives will soon be positives and not only positives but multiplications.

Hold onto hope! Though hope may feel like a “long shot” in the midst of the current circumstances and pain…still- hold onto hope and keep sowing seeds in the time of weeping.

“Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.” Zechariah‬ ‭9:12‬

I believe that many will experience their double portion breakthrough in the month of May. I specifically sense that this month is an open door that enters the body of Christ into a time of many breakthroughs. The summer months will be marked by miracles and remembered as the summer of miracles and summer of redemption! Multiplication will mark your life!

Though tears of pain have fallen, they have watered seeds of joy that will suddenly spring forth like wildflowers that are even now covering the fields. You will stand in awe as you witness the grace, kindness and goodness of God. Your tears have fallen and watered the seeds you have sown in faith and hooe. Songs of deliverance will soon be sung and the atmosphere will be filled with the sounds of joy.

Surely Goodness Will Follow You!

By Kathi Pelton

Last week I was listening to a pastor and very successful businessman who was talking about the key to his success. He said it is believing the “surelys” in the Bible! First he brought us to Hebrews 6:14 that says,

“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭6:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Then he brought us to the most known Psalm— Psalm 23, verse 6 where it says,

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…” Psalms‬ ‭23:6‬ ‭

He said that every morning he begins His day by praying and decreeing the “surely” truths over his life. I am calling it “The Surely Effect”!

As he prayed these verses over his life he said that he saw the cartoon character from the Charlie Brown strip named, Pigpen. Pigpen had a cloud of dirt that followed him wherever he went— it went before him, behind him and beside him. The Lord showed him that the “surely” promises of blessings, multiplication, mercy and loving kindness would encircle his life in the same way that the dust cloud encircled Pigpen’s life.

Once again…it is what I’m calling the “Surely Effect.” Isn’t it time to walk in His promises? To agree with, align with and decree them as a promised truth over everything you do and everything you touch?

Surely means assurance and confidence which is the same meaning as HOPE in regards to our faith. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for! It is confident expectation and assurance that what God says it true. He cannot lie!

It’s time to align with the “Surely Effect”! This will renew your faith and become a truth that surrounds you like a cloud of favor and promise.

Yesterday I did a Facebook live that talked about shaking off disappointment and going back to the trust that says, “He who promised is faithful.” (Hebrews 11:11). Far too often believers align with a false “surely” that tells a lie about our God. It says that surely you will be disappointed, surely you will lack, surely you will fail…and so on! But that is a lie that needs to be trampled like a snake under our feet. The truth is that for every believer, “Surely goodness and loving kindness, blessings and multiplication…and no lack” will follow you.

Today— receive the Surely Effect into your life!

THIS IS OUR 20/20 CLEAR VISION MOMENT!

By Kathi Pelton

As I have been spending time with the Lord this morning I was shown a vision of this “quarantine time” but in it I was in an optometrist office receiving an eye exam and being fitted for lenses that would bring my vision back to 20/20.

Many prophetic voices prophesied words about 20/20 vision coming in 2020. I recently came across a post from a man who was mocking those words and saying that this pandemic has proven the prophetic voices wrong. Well, I don’t know about you but for me personally this has been a time of seeing the state of my body, soul and spirit with greater clarity then ever before! The Spirit has been searching my life and my heart and giving me 20/20 vision to see what was formerly blurred by all the busyness and clutter in my soul.

I have never seen the finished work of the cross as clearly as I do right now. The power of His blood is bringing forth a personal reformation that is washing away everything that has usurped the true source of life and liberty. Much of what I saw were “good things” but not what I needed— for they were blocking my view of Him. It was like looking upon the wardrobe of someone you love but not truly seeing the person or the owner of the garments. My life was like a closet, stuffed full of His garments and yet little room for Him!

For me, it’s been like a fog has lifted (a veil has torn) and I can see again. Now I can partner with Him and yield to the work of His Spirit within me to bring me into greater “oneness with Christ.” Isn’t that the last thing that Jesus prayed before going to the cross?

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

How can we be one with one another if we are not first and foremost “one with God?” How will the world know if we are not—“in Him?” The verse above says, “…And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”

We have read these words thousands of times; prayed them, preached them and prophesied them! But until this time I do not know if we could “see” the way into oneness because we have been so divided in our own hearts and lives by the “things of Him” rather than Him alone. This “Selah” has stopped the speed of life that was blurring the very things we claim to hold dear.

If you are driving in a speeding vehicle everything that you pass by is blurred due to the speed you are moving at. But if you stop the vehicle and get out you can view your surroundings with clear focus and finally see the little details you missed at high speed. Often those details will include “the little foxes that spoil the vineyard.”

“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” Song of Songs‬ ‭2:15‬

We are in a spiritual “early Spring.” The grapevines of our love are blossoming and this pause or Selah has stopped us so that we see clearly and can “catch the little foxes” that seek to ruin the vineyard. If you run after a fox it will run away and most likely outrun you; but if you stop and are very still you can trap that fox and remove it from the vineyard of your life.

It is also very difficult to nurture love on the run! You must stop and get face to face and heart to heart with the one you love. The seeds of love grow underground in the hidden place where “soil and seed” are joined. It takes stillness, time, patience and watering to yield the fruit within. The same is true with our relationship with God and with people. I love the convergences of ministries but I long for the oneness of hearts even more. But first I must nurture my love with Christ.

I believe that the “20/20 vision in 2020” prophetic words may be the most accurate words ever prophesied into a new year. Did we expect it to come in this way— NO! But isn’t that usually the case with the prophetic? We hear what He plans to do but we rarely know how He will do it. His ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughts! And honestly, if we knew beforehand the details of “how” we’d probably try to orchestrate and control it and mess it up. What a wise Father we have!

One of the words the Lord spoke to me regarding 2020 was the word, “Jubilee.” A Jubilee Year is a time when all debts are forgiven. In the midst of what appears to be an unprecedented global economic crisis this word, “Jubilee” surely seems to be a major miss! Or is it?

For me personally, I feel like my soul is receiving an emotional and spiritual jubilee! The deeper revelation of the finished work of the cross that paid every debt is bringing me into a jubilee season like never before. I knew this truth before but it is becoming a deeper experiential reality that is not only catching the little foxes but it is causing me to become “one with Him.” I pray that this Jubilee will touch our economy as well but I am so overjoyed that it is first touching my soul and your soul.

So. YES— 2020 is a year of 20/20 vision. You must get still and allow our Great Optometrist, Jesus Christ, to examine you and give you new lenses. It’s time to see!
