REMNANT— ROAR — RUACH: The Spiritual Three R’s of 2020

By Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”

REMNANT

I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.

As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”

From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.

The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.

There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings the revelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!

ROAR

The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.

After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.

“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8

I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.

RUACH

The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”

As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.

Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14

The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross 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.”

The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!

We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!

Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!

May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!

Let it be so!

Time To Breathe— Send the “Ruach”

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was talking with a dear friend who has Covid-19 and he was sharing the darkness he experiences when he cannot get his breath. I have also heard this from others who have contracted this terrible illness. They all say that there seems to be a dark assignment within this virus that is attached to “breath” or the lack of breath.

Then I began to think of George Floyd and his last words, “I can’t breathe!” Those very words have pierced the heart of our nation at a time where the victims of this virus are speaking the very same words.

As I prayed and pondered this I found myself taking deep breaths. My heart was aching for those who are struggling to breathe. But as I took these deep breaths I felt life and hope coming back into me.

The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4

I find it interesting that the Book of Job has numerous instances where the breath of God is mentioned.

“By His breath the heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent.” Job 26:13

“But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.” Job 32:8

We all know what Job had gone through— the loss of family, the loss of health, the loss of wealth, and the loss of friends. But in the midst of this book we find the breath of God credited as the source of life and understanding. I love when it says, “By His breath, the heavens are cleared.”

There is such a war raging in the heavenly realms over the breath of the Almighty coming upon mankind, and the sound that is to be released from His sons and daughters. This Hebrew year is represented by the mouth and the sound that comes forth from the mouth (5780: “Pey”— the mouth), and it seems the enemy has taken all of his demonic resources to block our breath so that our sound will be silenced.

Without breath a man cannot speak or even utter a sound! Recently I had a dream in which a musician could not get his breath and his song was being silenced; although this dream had other meanings I also am reminded that we need breath to speak or to sing.

As you know, in California there is a ban on singing in church (or “chanting” which is probably referring to corporate prayers). Why? There are natural reasons regarding controlling the spread of the virus, but we can also discern that the enemy is inciting men to fear the breath that is released when there is corporate singing or praying.

The battle is for the breath of God and the breath that gives us words of declaration and songs of praise. The enemy has sent a virus upon the breath of man. We are afraid to breath on one another; we are afraid that the breath of our neighbor will infect us and take the breath of life from us.

There is a demonic reversal of “breath” happening. When we breathe in we feel life but when a man is dying there is a final exhale that rids his lungs of air— never to breathe in life again.

Yet— the BREATH OF THE ALMIGHTY cannot be stopped! His sons and daughters must breathe in His breath and be filled with life once again. If you are experiencing a sense of being silenced or losing your song, your words, your voice, or your life— then now is the time to ask for the “Breath of the Almighty” to come and breathe life back into you!

Thanksgiving, high praise, declarations of “Who He is,” prayers, worship, and even the “groaning that is too deep for words” must go forth to defeat the assignment to steal the breath of life! Though we have been separated physically, it has not stopped the sound. More 24/7 worship is happening via the internet then ever before. This has created a second wave of warfare to remove the breath in order to stop the sound!

Now is the time to see a second wave of prayer and praise drown out the enemy’s army! It’s time to “Sing a little louder”—or a lot louder! Sing for those who cannot sing, cannot speak, and cannot find their breath.

There is the sound of prophecy that the Lord is releasing. I hear Him saying, “Prophesy breath!”

Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel‬ ‭37:4-6‬

Prophesy His breath, sing songs about the breath of God, declare the Word regarding the breath of the Almighty! Breathe life back into the air— pure life filtered through His Spirit!

Ruach” is the Hebrew word for “breath of God.” God breathes His Spirit (Ruach) into us! As I have shared in many of my articles in 2020, the Lord showed me prior to the new year that this would be a year that would be defined by, “Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord of Hosts. It is the breath of His Spirit— His Ruach— that is striking fear into the enemy! It is His Ruach who is needed as never before!

This is how we prophesy, this is how we gain understanding, this is how we live and breathe. Cry out for the Ruach to come— the breath and wind of His Spirit to blow and breathe life into the earth and it’s inhabitants. Do not hold back. Breathe life!

Rising Above The Noise To Hear The True Sound

By Kathi Pelton

There is a noise that is heard on earth in this hour that has been sent to control and manipulate nations and people: it is a noise that declares fear, hate, accusations, hopelessness, ruin, conspiracy and unbelief. It is constantly flowing through the airwaves of communication to bombard peace with chaos and love with anger.

But— there is a sound that dispels the noise and parts the waters that seek to take us under. It is the sound of the voice of our God! To hear it, you must get above the noise. This is what the voice of our God sounds like,

“The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea. The God of glory thunders. The Lord thunders over the mighty sea. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning. The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare. In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!””
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭29:3-9‬ ‭

His voice strips the noise (the enemy) of it’s power and it’s authority to alter the times and seasons that the Lord has put in place. His voice shakes what can be shaken to bring us back to the solid foundation of righteousness, truth and justice. His voice thunders above the noise and yet restores peace, hope and joy. His voice breaks hate with the power of agape love.

I would love to think that all believers in Jesus are tuned into the sound of His voice but based on what I’m seeing on social media sites I’d say that the noise is infiltrating the lives of many— bringing fear, anger, confusion and chaos.

But we can leave the realm of noise to enter the place where the sound of His voice echoes throughout time and eternity. It is there that we are reset, gain heavenly perspective and are strengthened in our inner man through the Holy Spirit.

“The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.” Psalm 46:6

The noise is the nations in an uproar but there is a roar that comes from the Lion of Judah that is mighty to save!

In the Book of Revelation, chapter one takes us right into the sound of His voice being like a trumpet. And what does His voice do? It brings John into a revelation of our resurrected Lord,

“And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.” Revelation‬ ‭1:13-16‬ ‭

The nations need to hear the trumpet sound of His voice that brings them into a revelation of “Who He is!” We, the church, need to remember and behold the resurrected King of Glory! He is a lion and when He roars all the earth is shaken.

I have shared in other writings of mine recently that I am hearing the echo of the “breaking of jars” that Gideon’s army of 300 broke to reveal the blazing torches and release the sound of the trumpet (ram’s horn). This echo or sound plays in my spirit constantly. I know that it is a prophetic sound and revelatory sound. Last Tuesday I was in Washington DC praying when this sound increased in my spirit. But this time I was given eyes to see the “blazing torches of fire” that are about to be revealed before the enemy and his armies— it is the blazing fire of His eyes!

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.” Revelation 19:12

I believe that before 2020 is completed we will experience a shift that comes when the sound of jars are broken once again but this time they will reveal His eyes of blazing fire and the sound of His roar. This will cause a confusion to come upon the enemies camp that brings forth a great victory. It will be the sound that breaks the noise!

It will be like the time that the Lord looked down out of the pillar of fire upon Pharaoh’s army,

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

It is time to get out of the noise and to hear the sound that brings hope, brings victory and reveals the Lion of Judah! May our voices join with the sound that exults the One with the voice that trumpets triumph! He is God— the earth belongs to Him and all that is within it.

A Dream About Washington D.C.

By Kathi Pelton

In May of 2019 I was in Washington DC with the Awaken the Dawn family for a gathering. During my first night there I had a dream about Washington DC and our nation that was so real and vivid that it shifted everything in my life. I have not shared it before now publicly.

The Dream-

In this dream I found myself standing in a large room in Washington DC and when I looked around I saw Christian ministry leaders that I know from all across the world. I saw leaders from Israel, Germany, Japan, Canada, England, Egypt and many other nations. I was completely surprised to see them with me in Washington DC. I turned to them and said, “Why are you here?”

The leader from Germany looked at me and said, “The Lord came to each one of us and said to us, ‘You must go and stand with the United States in this hour. If the United States doesn’t make it then your nation will not make it.’”

Then many of the leaders began to tell me how they were told to “bring their trust in God” and pour it into America. As they spoke about pouring their trust in God unto our nation I was immediately taken in the spirit over the national mall in DC.

It was night and nothing was lit. No monuments, no buildings— not even the Capitol Building— and the streets and national mall were void of people. It was dark and void of life.

Then I heard the sound of these international men and women, along with those from the United States, begin to release the sound of “In God We Trust” and as they did this the entire national mall lit up— but with a light so bright that it wasn’t just “lights coming on” but a glory that shone so brightly that it glowed with a brilliance that I’d never seen before.

Then an enormous silver coin appeared over Washington DC that was blank. As the sound of the nations and our nation continued releasing this “sound of trust in God” suddenly this illuminated view of the national mall appeared upon the coin with the same brilliance as it was on the ground and after it was imprinted in the coin suddenly the illuminated words, “IN GOD WE TRUST” appeared upon this enormous coin. I knew that something had been established and restored as these international leaders came to stand with us. This coin remained hovering over DC.

As I woke up, I immediately felt that this would actually happen— men and women from many nations will be asked by the Lord to come and stand with us in a time of great darkness to restore our trust in God.

In May 2019 when I had this dream I didn’t understand why it felt as though this would occur soon because our nation “appeared” to be in such a strong place. Now, a year later— I have much greater understanding.

This dream also was the trigger that the the Lord used for asking our family and ministry to move to the Washington DC region from the West Coast. We were told we must be here as 2020 began so we arrived in January.

I believe that the enemy is trying to take our nation down in order to trigger a domino effect in many other nations destruction. I know that many say, “As the United States goes, so goes the nations.” I have heard that for many years and it is not in any national arrogance or pride that I repeat it; but rather because in this dream these international church leaders spoke those words to me.

I am yearning and praying that at the right time that the Spirit of the Lord would speak to our international family and ask them to come to our nations capital to stand with us and to bring their trust.

The unifying of many nations with our nation would heal so many wounds. I have traveled the nations and have wept many times as I heard great hatred spoken (sometimes screamed) about our nation— even by Christians. God is bringing a John 17:20-23 movement and global “oneness” within His Ecclesia. We must forgive, repent and love our neighbor as ourselves.

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. 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.”
‭‭John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

Last night on the drive home from the 4th of July fireworks we pulled up behind a car with a Virginia license plate with the words upon it, “In God We Trust” and the American flag waving. The license plate letters and numbers said this, “KATHI17” (I wish I had gotten a photo!!). What!?!?!

I immediately knew that God was speaking to me on our 2020 Independence Day regarding this dream. I believe that one day, and one day soon— the nations will come and gather with us in Washington DC; oneness and trust will bring the glory of the Lord to illuminate our nation and restore it to trust in God again. I believe that this “coin” will be given to the nations as a gift and a prophesy for their nation to be restore as well. This may also represent that the US will bring about an economic restoration for the nations as we turn back to God. A coin can also be a symbol of “change!”

“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”

The Echo

By Kathi Pelton

For many days now I have been hearing the word, “Echo.” Of a matter of fact I hear it and see it so often that it has now become like an echo in my ears. When I hear a word that repetitively I must stop and ask the Lord, “What are you saying?” So I did.

As I waited upon the Lord I was first led to look up the meaning of the word.

Echo: a repetition of sound produced by the reflection of sound waves from a wall, mountain, or other obstructing surface. a sound heard again near its source after being reflected.

When sound hits a hard surface or obstruction an echo is created as the sound waves bounce back near the source— we truly seem to have hit a mountain or obstruction globally and it is causing a great echo.

As I prayed I was taken to Hebrews 11 and heard the words,

“The echo of faith from the saints of old, who believed in Yahweh, has joined with the faith of those who believe today. The sound of old and sound of the new has become one clear echo which is a battering ram against the opposition that seeks to kill, steal and destroy. Mountains will come down!”

Hear are some of the words from Hebrews 11,

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:13‬ ‭

The great cloud of witnesses are watching the faith that they stood in long ago and the faith that we stand in converge as a sound that will echo through the earth today and through eternity. The intermingling of their faith and our faith is creating a frequency of sound that will break the barriers! It is the sound of those who stood in faith, walked by faith, persevered in faith and by faith took down mountains!

Let faith arise in this hour! Let it arise like never before. Grab hold of the same faith that Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived and died in! Let it become intermingled with your faith and the sound of your “yes.” Break the sound barrier of accusation and opposition and may the echo bring the fortified wall tumbling down as in the days of Jericho.

Pray, worship, prophesy, declare His Word aloud and let your feet go forth in faith! Release the sound of faith!

There will be another sound that echoes through the land and that is the sound of the enemy armies crying out in distress,

“The nations will hear of your devastating defeat. your cries of distress will echo throughout the earth. In the panic of their flight one soldier will trip over another and both of them will fall down defeated.” Jeremiah 46:12

Jesus already secured our victory! We know the end of the story and though we see the nations raging and darkness is seen on the earth— the faith of the saints of old and the faith that you live by will echo throughout eternity and will be a battering ram against the armies of darkness. His defeat is as sure as your victory.

Stir up faith. Don’t hide, don’t back down and don’t be found silent. Let the sound of the men and women of faith be heard throughout the earth!

Come Back To The Table

By Kathi Pelton

When the global quarantine began in March I was taken into a powerful encounter with the Lord. In this encounter I saw the Lord knock on the heart of His bride’s heart. She quickly and readily responded and opened the door for Him to come in— but He could not enter because her heart was too crowded. It was filled with so many things; even spiritual things (teachings, methods for ministry, etc.). Her heart was so full of thing about the Lord that there was no room for the Lord. He then asked her if He could clean out the clutter in her heart so that He can come in and reside. She responded with a “yes.” As I watched this process I was surprised because He emptied her heart of everything— until there was nothing left but room for Him. Then he brought in a small wooden table and two chairs. He proceeded to set a loaf of bread and a glass of wine upon that table. Then He sat down in one of the chairs and said to His bride, “This is all you need. Come sit at the table with me and dine upon the finished work of the cross.”

For many weeks I did just that. I sat with Him, took communion and feasted upon the intimacy and simplicity that was at this table. It was everything to me and everything I needed— His tangible presence, the constant reminder of the grace provided by the cross and a space made to breathe Him in.

Then, as the time of Pentecost came and went I began to add things to my schedule again. Then as unrest hit our nation like a shocking flood of trauma, I gradually began to focus on the solution and how to respond to help others and heal our land. Though these are not bad things and though I was spending a lot of time with the Lord, I had left the table that He set up in my heart and was running through the streets looking for Him.

Today, the Lord stopped me and gently whispered to me, “Beloved, return to the table that I set up in your heart.” Come as you are, dine with Me for I am all that you need.”

Suddenly, breath filled my spirit and I felt a clean, white garment placed upon me. I knew that the table is where I will receive all that I need in the days ahead. This is where my cup will overflow with all that I need and desire will be fulfilled. This is where I will breathe in the breath of His life to refresh my soul. I will eat and be satisfied by His goodness and mercy. I will receive wisdom for the day and be baptized in the flood of His love. This is both a bridal chamber and a war room— for oneness is produced here and mysteries are revealed here. I will begin and end each day here to once again. When and where He goes, I will go but my spirit will remain at the table.

God is calling us back to the table set for two. In the midst of our enemies— He sets a table and invites us to sit with Him and dine with Him.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows.” Psalm 23:5

We must begin in this place and even as we go out— our spirits must remain at His table. It is here that we receive His blood, His body, His breath, His fragrance and the light, clean garment that refresh us and clothes us in His strength.

Let His love fill your cup and then drink deep. Feast upon the fullness of “Christ in you” and listen to His voice— His whisper is revelation and wisdom.

It’s time to come back to the table!

The Enemy’s Kryptonite

By Kathi Pelton

We are standing in the midst of an nation that is gripped in fear, rage, pain and exposure. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. Our very roots are being shaken as chaos fills our cities and streets.

So, how do we— the body of Christ— position ourselves and navigate these perilous times? I spend the past week asking the Lord and even talking with trusted friends about this very thing. Though I only “see in part”, I would like to submit to you my part.

One of the things that the Lord clearly reminded me of was of a vision that I had over twenty years ago where I was taken over a particular nation that was in great turmoil. This nation was not only experiencing a shaking but it was also very known for worshipping idols (burning incense to man made statues, making offerings to carved images, etc.). In my vision I was taken above this nation and I saw what I can only describe as the scent of fear, idolatry, anger, pain and the worship of false gods that was attracting demons to gather in what looked like a “feeding frenzy.” The demonic activity over this nation was being fed by the emotional reactions and the works of men and women enslaved to serve images that demand a cost yet give nothing in return.

Then, in this vision (encounter), I was taken to the solution. I saw the believers in this nation raising up the standard of the “fear of the Lord.” What that looked like was a posture of abiding trust, becoming still in perfect peace, persevering in prayer and devoted to the worship of Jesus alone! As the believers engaged in this it released a fragrance or perfume in the atmosphere over this nation of “the scent of Heaven.” Suddenly the demons began to flee in absolute anguish as the scent of Christ’s body was released. It was a “repelling scent to the forces of hell.” The other thing that happened in this encounter was that as the beautiful fragrance of the bride filled the atmosphere it caused angels to rush and gather to the scent. It strengthened them and they fed upon the peace, the trust, the prayers of faith and the worship. It strengthened them to be victorious in battling the powers and principalities that were keeping nations and people captive. I watched this nation change through the remnant of God’s people shifting the atmosphere that became like kryptonite to the enemy and his demons.

The second thing that the Lord reminded me of was that He has always told me these words,

“Kathi, peace and the stillness of abiding trust is absolute confusion and chaos to the enemy!”

Peace and trust is like an encoded message that the enemy cannot decode. It also releases chaos and fear into the enemy’s camp like no other thing. The peace is God causes confusion and chaos to come upon the enemy’s plans!

There will be assignments that will be given to many in this time. Some of you will be called to the public squares in cities as reformers. Some of you will be called to the secret place of prayer. Some of you will be called to serve on mountains of influence that need to be redeemed and some of you will be called to release the sound of worship. Whatever the call, the assignment or the place…do it from the place of perfect peace and abiding trust. This posture will become the promise of Psalm 91 over you and it will be a weapon like no other.

Whether you are going out to the streets or closing yourself into your prayer closet; this is a time to “be still and know that He is God!” The stillness of peace and trust will make room for Him to move!

This truly is a “not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit” time in history! Sometimes our silence and stillness that comes from absolute trust deafens the noise and calms the storm more than anything else. What did Jesus do in the storm? He slept in perfect peace knowing that His Father would not let anything happen to him.

You may raise your voice in worship and truth but there is a stillness and silent trust that will establish far more than anything else we can offer at this time. If fear and chaos has filled your heart and mind— this is the time to ask the Spirit of the Lord to deliver you from the atmosphere and influence of this world and to usher you into the unshakable Kingdom of His dear Son. Peace and trust will clothe you with a stillness that confounds the enemy and gives you strength.

“Be still and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

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!

When God Stops Establishing Your Steps He Begins Establishing Your Knees- Then Everything Changes!

By Kathi Pelton

This morning Lana Vawser posted a word about a vision where she saw God’s people “throwing their 2020 calendars into the fire.” As I read these words I began to ponder why, for the first time in thirty years, I did not buy a wall calendar or daily planner for 2020? Was it because we were moving in January and I was just too busy? But, no…I always pick it out in December and my sweet husband gets it for me for Christmas. But I just didn’t feel to as we entered 2020. I felt like there was no way to plan what the Lord would do.

Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his ways, but the Lord establishes his steps.”

This verse has always filled me with such confidence in going forward into the future. It has filled me with hope and joy to know that even if I get “my plans” wrong that He will order and establish my steps as I live in a posture of surrender and of yielding to His will.

But suddenly even our steps are stopped! Plans are cancelled and a divine “moment in time” has been established. I asked the Lord, “What are Your steps for me in this time.” I was answered by a vision of my shoes coming off and my feet leaving the ground as my “knees were being established.” With that vision my heart bowed down in worship, in silent meditation, in prayer and in knowing that HE IS GOD. My knees have become my established posture and single step for 2020.

So many prophesied that 2020 would be a year of divine focus and clear vision and there has never been a more accurate word! As the planners have been set aside, the events stopped and the calendars reveal only blank boxes, suddenly the Bride has gone in to the chambers with her Bridegroom to rediscover first love. And it is within these closed doors of intimacy that He is sharing His mysteries with her; even His strategies and His plans. But first, He is awakening love!

Yesterday morning I looked at my husband and said, “What is that fragrance that you are wearing?” He looked at me a bit baffled and replied, “Deodorant. The same one I wear everyday.” But I was all the way across the room and a fragrance that was so refreshing, clean and awakening filled my senses. I lingered in it and knew that I must be smelling the fragrance of “love awakening.” There is a fragrance of “oneness” that is awakening His bride.

The doorway into His chambers are often found in that place where our shoes are removed and our feet cease to move– it’s the place where we enter in upon our knees. I saw “knees established” so that future steps will be aligned. There is no going back and we do not want to; this is a time to move forward from a personal awakening and reformation that sparks a global awakening and reformation. For me, it’s a time to lay it all down and yield. Yield to “oneness with Christ” which only happens in His chambers. Oneness doesn’t happen in crowds or in events, it happens in the chambers of our hearts and behind closed doors.

A new wine skin is being established that will hold the new wine that will be poured out. If God had poured out the new wine into the old wine skin it surely would have burst and been wasted. Be ever so careful to not hold onto the old ways, the former plans and as Lana spoke, “…to want to get back to what we were doing before this Selah.” We must receive the invitation into His chambers where we yield to Him in a oneness that comes only through intimacy and communion together. Oneness will hold the new wine. It is the true answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21-23, “That they would be one even as we are one…”

Remove your shoes and allow your steps to cease and your knees to be established. There is a great awakening but it is happening first in the chambers of intimacy. It is there that He will establish oneness (He will set it as a seal upon your heart) and then He will share the mysteries and the secrets of His heart.

My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise my darling, my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:10

Let your steps take you to your knees where you will arise and go with Him to the place that love is awakened and oneness is sealed.

Separation Has Brought Us Together— We Are Becoming One!

By Kathi Pelton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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