Beyond Fantasy

by Jeffrey Pelton

A life lived with Jesus is a journey, filled with hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered. If we divest ourselves of our religious mindsets and our spiritual preening, approach our Savior with humility, admit that we don’t know half of what we think we know (and most of that is probably wrong), and realize that he wants to sweep us up into his eternal story, we will discover that Scripture is the recounting of a fairy tale, written moment by moment into the fabric of reality by the Author of all things. After all, we inhabit a story of intrigue, and passion, and danger, and betrayal, and romance, and heroism beyond imagination. If we can humble ourselves and gain renewed minds and let the Holy Spirit wipe the scales from our eyes, we become available to encounter wonders.

The Bible is filled with glorious promises and stories of great faith and heroic deeds. With awed imagination, we ponder the great miracles God has done in the lives of his people. Scripture is clear that God is for us, not against us, and that nothing can separate us from his love.

Yet, many people exist with unspoken, nagging doubts as to their genuine standing before the King. They feel that they are not living in anything like what could be considered overwhelming victory. They have the occasional, momentary flash of confidence in the Lord; the sense of his nearness and his triumph in their lives. Yet in most of their day-to-day living, they feel as though they are being battered and bullied by circumstances and personal failures and unanswered prayers.

They are like Zion, addressed in Isaiah 54:11,

O you afflicted one,

Tossed with tempest, and not comforted….

There is not a person alive who has not felt thrown about by waves of insecurity and fears. Also, we are assaulted by the enemy of our souls—the accuser who slithers to our side to remind us of the “facts” of our lives, pointing out every spot on our garments, every stain on our reputation, every failure to live as we should.

We too often fall into the mind-set that thinks the Lord has forgotten us. We don’t want to believe that he is too busy for us, but somehow we carry a nagging suspicion that he is aloof from our concerns and circumstances. If he truly cared, if he was aware of my needs, he would do something. In our foolish frustration borne of fear—in the “fretting unbelief of our hearts” (Francis Frangipane)—we think that our circumstances, or sin, have taken God by surprise.

This, we come to believe, is unpleasant and unavoidable reality. We long for “something more;” we ache with longing to feel close to our Creator and to really experience his love. We feel a thrill of glory and excitement as we discern the echoes of our desire in tales of imagination–stories sad and beautiful, wretched and charming, frightening and uplifting. Fables and fairy tales ignite our passion as we recognize, even if it is only for a few moments, our deepest desire for significance, for adventure, for heroism; we dream of the chance to battle for good and overcome evil, the wonder of being swept away in love, and the honor of truly living a life of sacrifice for a great and noble cause.

This is the lure and appeal of the great stories we love. Yet when we lay down the book or leave the movie theater or turn off the television, we return to our mundane lives, our hearts weighed down with empty resignation. Like Norman MacLean, we realize that “life is not a work of art.” Such moments cannot last.

But, what if we’re wrong? There is always a greater and deeper reality than the journeys of feeble men and women. In C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Aslan the lion tells the children about the “magic deeper still” from “the stillness and the darkness before Time dawned.” From endless ages past, our names have been written in the Book of Life belonging to the eternal Lamb who was slain for us. He is the great, noble, and powerful King who woos us by his mercy, delivers us from our selfishness and foolishness, and then catapults us into a story that catches us off-guard with its intensity and fire. We have been captivated and captured by a magnificent monarch who has determined to use his limitless resources to present to himself a breathtaking bride, stunning in her beauty, possessing neither spot nor wrinkle, but only transcendent loveliness.

Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems,

And lay your foundations with sapphires.

I will make your pinnacles of rubies,

Your gates of crystal,

And all your walls of precious stones (Isaiah 54:11-12).

Your Lord has promised he will set the foundations of your life with precious stones; he is establishing his glory and beauty as the bedrock of your life. He created you for significance—for magnificence—and he will settle for nothing less as he moves you forward in your destiny.

So the King will greatly desire your beauty;

because He is your Lord, worship Him…

The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace;

Her clothing is woven with gold.

She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors….(Psalm 45:11, 13-14).

The glory you will display is a mysterious and powerful work of his own hand:

 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who call you is faithful, who also will do it 

(1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.)

I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them (Ezekiel 36:25-27.)

Our God is the Originator of all that exists (Genesis 1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17.) He is from everlasting to everlasting, and knows the end from the beginning (Psalm 90:2; Isaiah 46:10.) He is First and Last; He is the Beginning; He is the End (Isaiah 44:6; Revelation 1:8, 22:13.) The ageless past and endless future are in his hands (Isaiah 43:10-13.) He controls the destiny of everything he has made—and he made everything that is—so he determines our value, our worth, our significance, and our place in the tapestry of eternity.

The Lord knows full well who he intends each of us to be. In fact, this one who knows the end from the beginning has a destiny for you beyond anything you could begin to perceive.

But as it is written:
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

Nor have entered into the heart of man

The things which God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Cor. 2:9.)

Our present world is burdened by trouble and chaos; even our best intentions and systems are afflicted with wickedness and injustice. Jesus told us that we would have tribulation in this world, and we feel the anguish of the darkness that surrounds us, as well as the awareness of our own failures. Our Father knows all this and feels the pain too—and infinitely deeper than we could ever experience. He understands every minute detail of our journey here—every thought, every action. He understands our successes, our failures, our fears and our doubts.

But, do you not realize that when you worship and pray, presenting yourself before the Lord of glory, he is able to see you as you will be in eternity? He can interact with that glorious being he knows you will be. He sees the true you; the You you will become. Because he has determined to lead you into that destiny, he is able to respond to that person he has created. He knows you as the magnificent expression of his image that you will be throughout eternity. This is not wishful imagination or fanciful thinking. Your future identity is, to God, a reality now, a person who is locatable and knowable by our great King.

He is drawing us out of our “reality” into his. You have been created as an awesome image of our glorious Lord, destined to display his splendor not only in this age, but in the age to come, and to give glory and praise to him, dwelling in love with him for all eternity.

We will never, never cease to be the people who love the LORD our God with all our hearts, minds, souls, and strength. And what glorious people we are, and will be!

The Lion of Judah is Releasing His Overcoming Roar

~~Kathi Pelton

Divine help is needed for many to overcome adversity and obstacles that have been placed in their path to prevent them from walking in the overcoming breakthrough that they have been standing in faith for. 

1 Peter 5:8 says, 

“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 

The adversary has been on the prowl against many of God’s people to devour them in the grip of discouragement and despair. 

I saw a vision of the devil prowling around like a roaring lion to bring paralyzing fear to people. As they stood frozen in fear he would begin to devour them. As they cried out the true Lion responded to their cries for help and He released a mighty roar that turned the fear upon the devil causing him to flee. 

The roar that I heard in my spirit was deafening! It not only caused the enemy to release those who he had in his grip but this roar released the overcoming power of the Lion of Judah upon their lives that reordered and restored. This was a mighty roar of righteous anger and authority. As I saw the roar go forth it caused what I can only describe as people encased in stone to be released. The sound of His roar caused the stones that encased them to shatter and they came forth like diamonds released from the rough.

The Lion of Judah’s roar will not only break the grip of paralyzing fear but it will break the stones that have hidden the true worth and value of God’s people. His roar will release loved ones that have been in the grip of the enemy’s jaw and encased in stone. Lastly, it will cause walls to fall that have held many captive in circumstances beyond their control. 

Then I heard God’s people join in with the roar of the Lord. It was an overcoming roar of victory that joined with the roar of the One who overcame and obtained victory for all. The Earth trembled at the sound causing global walls to fall, prisoners released, strongholds to break and hidden things reveals (both hidden plans of the enemy and hidden treasures of wealth). 

Join in with the roar of the overcomers. The Lion of Judah is releasing His roar!



If you have been blessed and encouraged by this word then sow a financial seed of overcoming victory! I will release my roar of agreement over every seed down. Go to:

No More Shades of Grey: A Word of Hope and Freedom

 ~~Kathi Pelton

The ruler of this world seeks who he might destroy but Jesus came to give us life…abundant life. Jesus also came to take us from darkness to His glorious light and truth. 

Over the past number of days I continue to hear the words in my spirit,

“I am removing every shade of grey from the lives of My people. My grace will wash away the grey and bring refined beauty to My bride.” 

When Jesus was coming to the end of His Earthly journey He spoke these words,

““I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.”

‭‭John‬ ‭14:30-31‬ ‭

We are in Christ and it is His righteousness that covers all of our unrighteousness. It is the great grace, that He alone purchased for us, that covers and forgives every place of compromise and sin in our lives. Yet that same grace that covers us also gives us the gift of repentance that removes every shade of grey (compromise and darkness) that hides the beauty of whose identity we were created to reveal. 

“Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace? Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it? Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭6:1-3‬ ‭

God is removing the places in our lives that gives the ruler of this world a foothold and cast shadows upon the true revelation of the love and face of God. 

I hear the Spirit saying that this is a time that the deep buried roots of bondage and captivity are now being revealed and removed so that the hidden treasures of His glory that will be revealed will not be spoiled.

This is a work of grace! Human strength and even self-evaluation cannot accomplish this work but the power and might of the Advocate (the Holy Spirit) within us is bringing freedom from all that has encumbered us and enslaved us to a heavy yoke.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.”

Galatians 5:1

The Father longs to see His people free. He has heard every prayer that cries out for freedom from the places that weighs them down and keeps them in entangled in darkness. He has been refining and aligning His people. As they have responded to this work it has removed blockages that now are allowing the “tap roots” to be removed. This will bring great freedom and joy. 

It truly is His kindness and the riches of His love that brings us to the place of repentance and freedom (Romans 2:4). How merciful He is! How patient He is! How deep is His love for us! 

Rest fully in the gift of grace and allow the Holy Spirit to do this sovereign work in your life. Rest and grace is the divine anesthesia needed for the spiritual surgery that removes the deep roots that have caused “shades of grey” in your life. 

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.” 

Galatians 5:1

God is Turning Your Ashes into Beauty. This is Your Cinderella Moment!

~~Kathi Pelton

The Lord took me into a vision today where I saw Cinderella sitting in ashes with her ragged clothes on. She was tired and nearing hopelessness). Then, suddenly, she transformed into a beautiful princess that was being brought into the King’s palace. She was going from a place of utter hopelessness to the manifestation of her “above and beyond more than she could ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). 

Yesterday we passed into the first day of summer (in the Northern Hemisphere). As this happened I saw a shift in time that moved us into the “Summer of Miracles” that the Lord has revealed. It may be better worded as a “Season of Miracles” because it is not limited to those living in the Northern Hemisphere. This is a three month period that will usher in signs and wonders on a miraculous scale that will continue to the end of time. 

What happened to Cinderella could only happen in fairy tales but get ready to see real life fairy tales happen this summer. You may not have a fairy godmother but you have a Heavenly Father that knows who He created you to be. God did not create you for captivity, slavery or ashes. He created you for beauty, royalty and the King’s palace. 

Right after seeing this vision I also received a warning from the Holy Spirit that the enemy is quite terrified by this time and the repositioning that is happening (from ashes to beauty). He is sending out assignments to bring trouble upon God’s people. This trouble would come from the spirit of Leviathan. In God’s mercy He is giving us strategy of how to handle this before it happens.

I first heard the verse from Philippians 4:8 that says,

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”



Fixing your mind (thoughts) on what is pure will be a shield to protect you from these assignments. Reign in your soul to be aligned with the Holy Spirit who lives within you. Do not be moved by soulish reactions. I saw a rapid heartbeat come upon people that was triggered by words spoken and words heard. It was trying to create a reaction of emotion (offense) but the Lord wants you to be forewarned to this assignment. When you feel a rapid heartbeat come upon your chest stop and fix your thoughts upon the attributes listed in Philippians 4:8. Do not allow offense to take hold but be sure to respond in love rather than react in anger or offense.

I heard the Spirit say this,

“As My people dwell in My place of purity and peace they will be be kept safe from the arrows of trouble and chaos that the enemy shoots their direction. I am their shield and protector.” 

Nahum 1:7

“The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him.”

This is a time of miracles, restoration and beauty! Do not allow the thief to steal your peace and joy during this time. Joy and peace are completely unfamiliar to him and he seeks to steal them from you. 

“The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.” 

Psalm 28:7

Let the Lord guard your ears and put His coal upon your lips to keep you from speaking anything that will result in stealing your peace and joy. Use your voice and words to shout songs of thanksgiving! This is your divine time. This is your time of receiving beauty for ashes and experiencing your Ephesians 3:20 promise. 

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭

Amen!

God is Calling You from the Ordinary to the Extraordinary! 

~~Kathi Pelton

The ordinary is rarely extraordinary! I hear the Lord inviting His people to live in the extraordinary. The Holy Spirit has been speaking through His prophets words like “transitions” and “upgrades”; these are true words but they are often obtained outside of the perimeters of the ordinary. 

In a world of chaos and ever-changing events it can seem wise to play it safe and not take what the world would call unnecessary risks. One of the enemy’s greatest strategies is to whisper worldly wisdom in the ears of people who were called to live in God’s extraordinary plans for their lives. He knows that if he can convince them to live within the realm of the ordinary that he can reduce their influence. The enemy always seeks to “downgrade” God’s people because he is terrified by them moving into their upgrade where greater influence and authority exists.

I saw a vision of many people coming upon a fork in the road of their lives. One was marked “ordinary” and one was marked “extraordinary”. The difference was that the ordinary one looked well travelled and appeared the safer route. The one marked extraordinary was definitely the “road less traveled” and to the natural eye it appeared to hold greater risk. 

By nature I am a play it safe sort of person. I would normally choose safe comfort over risky adventure. When I asked Jesus into my life at age 18 I quickly realized that my desire for comfort and the familiar was going to be challenged. By the time I was 20 I was walking down that road less traveled to follow Jesus into the extraordinary. This road has stretched me beyond my natural tendencies into His supernatural plans. 

One day, while I was traveling alone to Okinawa, Japan it dawned on me that if someone had told me when I was young that I’d become more familiar with the unfamiliar than the ordinary that I would have laughed at them. Of a matter of fact, many years ago the late Jill Austin prophesied over me that God was calling me to the nations of the world. I remember thinking, “No way! I am barely brave enough to go beyond my home or local church.” I truly thought that she had missed God when she prophesied this. Yet God kept taking me and our family to those forks in the road that separated the ordinary from the extraordinary. My flesh wanted the ordinary but my spirit would always give me courage to take the road marked extraordinary.

Taking the road less traveled has always resulted in upgrades and stepping up into greater realms with God. I have gone from being a child with paralyzingly stage fright to prophesying before crowds of people. I have been taken beyond the white picket fence that I longed to stay behind to crossing the borders of nations. 

Most of these upgrades and extraordinary opportunities came through merely choosing the path that the Spirit of the Lord was inviting me to walk upon with Him. We were not created for the natural but rather the supernatural. We were not created for the ordinary but rather the extraordinary. 

No matter who you are or what the call upon your life is, it should be extraordinary! There should not be any believer who lives outside of the supernatural experience of Kingdom living. It’s time to jump over the boundary lines of ordinary living. He is calling you into extraordinary life which will draw out of you the gifts that you don’t even know exist within you. Hidden treasures will be revealed as you choose this path. 

Get ready for the greatest adventure of your life!

MIND THE GAP

~~Kathi Pelton

The enemy and his cohorts are continually watching for places of access or “gaps” to enter into the lives, ministries, businesses, cities and even nations. 

I hear the Spirit of the Lord issuing both an exhortation and a word of caution by saying to His people, 

“Mind the gap!” 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this saying, if you are ever in London, England and take their subway system (called The Tube) you will hear a repeated message as you board or exit the subway that says the words, “Mind the gap”. It is a cautionary message to be aware of the gap between the train and the platform. 

The enemy looks for the space between you and the Lord to enter in through. Just like in the days of Nehemiah when the enemy looked for the gaps in the wall to gain access to the city, we must not allow gaps or breaches in our lives (or cities) that give the thief access.

Relationship is key for keeping the gap filled. I learned many years ago that busyness (even Kingdom busyness) often can be the cause that creates a breach in relational connection. I learned to take time to pray, praise, meditate on His Word and talk to my Lord throughout the busy day. 

Your car can become a sanctuary where praise goes forth, it can become your house of prayer where victories are won or a space in time where you share a conversation with God. Preparing a meal or even eating a meal can become your invitation to go to the banqueting table of the Lord and partake of the goodness of His love. Even taking a shower can become a few minutes to fill the gap by spending that time connecting with God. It can be both a physical and spiritual washing. 

The Spirit of the Lord is releasing a cautionary warning to “mind the gap” (the space between you and God) so that you do not become a soft target, making it easy for the enemy to execute his attacks against you. This is the definition of a soft target:

Soft Target: a person or thing that is relatively unprotected or vulnerable, especially to military or terrorist attack.

Relationship with God leaves you protected and removes the vulnerability that the enemy looks for. Psalm 91 is a promise of protection as you dwell with God,

“Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-6‬ ‭

When I heard the words, “Mind the gap”, even more than it being a cautionary warning, it contained a deep longing for connection, intimacy and communion with His sons and daughters. Though the Lord is always present with us, intimacy and relationship fills the gap. You can spent time with your spouse, a coworker, a child or friend but it does not produce intimacy unless you connect heart to heart. 

It is so common to see families out for dinner together or a couple sitting on a park bench but they are on their cell phones; they are present but not connected. There is a gap between them. Though the Lord is always with us, He longs for connection that is mutual and focused.

Take time to fill the space between you and God. Fill it with conversations with Him, worship, time in His Word, prayer and mutual affection.

Mind the gap by filling the gap! God is inviting you into the space between you and Him. It is a chamber of intimacy that awaits you.

Watch God Move on Your Behalf! “A Mouse Will Frighten Away the Elephant Sitting on Your Chest” 

~~Kathi Pelton

We are seeing an increasing number of God’s people experiencing the manifestation of God moving on their behalf. This is moving them out of a time of great pressure and into a time of forward movement and breakthrough. 

This surge of seeing God’s miraculous movement will increase and spread throughout the body of Christ throughout the summer months. I continue to hear the Spirit speaking to me that this is a John 10:10 time,

“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”

‭‭John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

The enemy has been on the move in such an aggressive way to come in as a thief. He has gone out to steal, kill and destroy but we are seeing the enemy being caught red handed in the midst of these “robberies”. He will have to return all that he has taken and more! He has been caught, tried and found guilty regarding the charges of being a thief, a murderer and for bringing pain and suffering upon God’s people. A sentence of restitution is even now being demanded. 

The Father is reminding you of this truth,

“I AM PERFECT IN ALL OF MY WAYS!”

Psalm 18:30 confirms this, 

“As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.”

Perfect and flawless! He has not stumbled or failed regarding your life and circumstances because His ways are perfect and His Word is flawless. You can take refuge in Him and comfort in the flawless truth of His word. 

We cannot judge the holiness or truthfulness of God on momentary circumstances. He will reward the just and those who have found salvation through Jesus Christ. Stand strong in His truth and run into Him as your refuge; in times of trouble and in times of prosperity. Resist all temptation to believe any accusation against God and His character. Resist evil and do good…then watch God move! 

“He rescued me from my powerful enemies, from those who hated me and were too strong for me. They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the Lord supported me. He led me to a place of safety; he rescued me because he delights in me. The Lord rewarded me for doing right; he restored me because of my innocence. For I have kept the ways of the Lord; I have not turned from my God to follow evil.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭18:17-21‬ ‭

The Lord is moving swiftly at this time with rewards in His hand for those who have stood in righteousness and innocence. Rewards for obedience are in His hand for those who have remained faithful in the midst of tremendous warfare. They are now being distributed to His sons and daughters. 

I also saw a picture in the Spirit of an elephant sitting on the chest of a person. I knew that this represented a great weight and pressure that many had been under. Then the picture turned into a short vision where I saw God release a tiny mouse that ran in front of this elephant and the elephant ran off in fear. In a moment the weight and pressure was lifted off of the person. 

Though the elephant was large and appeared to be unmovable it only took a tiny mouse to move him. One word from the mouth of the Lord will frighten away the seemingly massive attack that has been weighing you down. You will breath deep again and experience the light yoke that the Lord has intended for you to live in. It will be like coming out of the dark into the full light of a summer’s day or from a great storm into a full blue sky. 

God will move on your behalf! Your upgrade and double portion reward is with Him! You will breath freely once again. 

Amen!

The Father’s Gift to You

~~Kathi Pelton

As we enter Father’s Day weekend I heard the Spirit speak to me and say, 

“The Father has a gift for His children this Father’s Day. He will display His goodness in the lives of His sons and daughters in a significant way that brings peace and joy to them.”

I can truly testify that the more I surrender to the peace and joy of being a beloved daughter who has a father that desires the best for me, the more I experience the manifestation of His goodness. 

Have you ever seen a young child fighting against his mother or father in a tantrum? If that child only understood that if they would be still and rest in the presence of their parents that they would experience far more goodness than their struggle is striving to produce. 

I saw a vision of God’s sons and daughters struggling against God, not understanding that He has only good for them. He desires peace, joy and goodness for you as you take His hand and trust where and how He is leading you.

Then I heard the words, 

“You can count on Me.” 

King David understood this promise,

“I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭130:5‬ ‭

You can count on the goodness of your Father!! You can rest in His presence knowing that His love and wisdom will lead you to experience His goodness.

“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.”
‭‭James‬ ‭1:17‬ 

Don’t let the shadows of the world cause you to fight against the promise of your good, good Father. There is no shadows of shifting from His truth and promise over you life. 

“This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength…”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭30:15‬ ‭

During the time that we give gifts to our fathers your Heavenly Father desires to give you a gift. The gift of rest, peace, joy and His goodness. 

Receive it, believe it and count on it! There is joy on His presence and peace in His love. Move into the light of His goodness where all shadows disappear and the fullness of the Father of Lights is experienced and enjoyed.

Your “Hallelujahs” Are Producing Multiplication 

~~Kathi Pelton

I woke up in the midst of a vision where I saw God’s people singing “Hallelujahs” and as they did multiplication was occurring all around them. Their praises were like seeds being sown in the fertile ground of Heaven that were bringing forth multiplication. 

This multiplication was like beauty, blossoms and fruitfulness appearing suddenly all around them. As they focused on Jesus and released their “Hallelujahs” their prayers were being answered, their lives were producing fruitfulness and beauty was blooming in the place where ashes had previously been.

It was like the manifestation of Matthew 6:33,

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”


The words “seek first” could be reworded as “place your focus upon”. In this vision the people had put their attention (focus) on the goodness of God and they were releasing their praises. This was causing all that they needed to be added unto them. They were not praising to receive but because He is worthy; result was multiplication of all that they needed. 

It is time to your focus off of your need or what you feel that you are lacking. Turn your attention upon the goodness of God and how He is worthy to receive all of your praise. He lacks nothing! Let your Hallelujahs be heard. 

Psalm 145 is psalm (song) of praise and promises. It begins with these words,

“Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure his greatness.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭145:3‬ ‭

This psalm proceeds to tell of the promises of God to help, rescue and grant the desires of those who fear His name. His greatness is beyond measure and His ability to save and deliver is sure. Worship Him and know that all that you need and desire is secured in the awe and fear of the Lord. 

Proverbs 9:10 says that the “fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom“. The “Fear of the Lord” refers to a specific sense of respect, awe, and submission of your life to God. Our awe of God causes our praises to go forth. Worship is the wisdom that you need; it is the key to see multiplication. Proverbs 9 goes on to say this,

“Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭9:10-11‬ ‭
Here is the blueprint:

1. Let the fear of the Lord be the foundation of your life; which is to live in reverence and awe of Him. 

2. Let your worship (your Hallelujahs) of the One who is worthy go forth.

3. Seek Him and His Kingdom first; turn your attention and affections upon Him. 

4. God will add to your life all that you need and even what you desire.

5. Wisdom (that comes from the fear of the Lord and worship) will bring multiplication upon your days and life. 
Worry is not worthy of your time. Afflictions are not worthy of your attention and the fears that causes your focus to leave the One who is worthy will subtract rather than multiply. As you worship He will bring great multiplications of blessings, answers and desires fulfilled upon your life! 

Today let your “Hallelujahs” be sing loud and clear! 


If this ministry is a blessing to you then consider sowing a financial seed that will multiply in your life!

Your Forecast: 100% Chance of Breakthrough 

~~Kathi Pelton

Do you know that there has never been a moment in your life that you were not loved? Not only cared for but loved enough for another to lay down their very life for you. Nothing that has happened to you and nothing that ever will happen to you will change the fact that you live in the grip of the greatest love that ever existed…24-hours a day and 7-days a week!

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

There have been days and moments in my life where I find myself functioning and navigating through life as if I am not loved or living in the constant embrace of my loving Savior. When so come to my senses I have to immediately stop what I’m doing and remind my soul that I am not alone but rather surrounded by the greatest love ever known. Not only that but I walk through life with the presence of angels that watch over my every step.

“For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:11-12‬ ‭

I often call that verse my 911 promise for help in any emergency! 

The Lord wants you to know that the enemy is not the one “calling the shots” regarding your life or future. Circumstances have no authority over His love that encircles your every moment and every move. Do not believe the bad report or negative forecast that the enemy is announcing over your life. He is a liar! Believing his lies will only rob you of the peace and joy of living in God’s truth and love. 

Yes, there are times in this life that we have tribulations and trials but even in those times we are surrounded by love and the promise of eternity. Peace and joy are found and experienced in the midst of knowing that you are never alone and always loved. 

You may be in the midst of needing a breakthrough in your circumstances and God wants you to know today that His forecast over your life is that there is 100% chance of breakthrough!! Love never fails! 

Take a moment to remember who you are and who He is. Adjust your crown, raise up your lowered shoulders and go out today knowing that you are His and you are loved. Let His love encircle your day and order your steps. Let His love go before you and follow behind you 

Psalm 139 is one of my favorite portions of scripture. It is my “identity compass”. It is your reality and may it be the true forecast in your life today.

“O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! I can never escape from your Spirit! I can never get away from your presence! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me. I could ask the darkness to hide me and the light around me to become night— but even in darkness I cannot hide from you. To you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are the same to you. You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:1-18‬ ‭
