The Lord Has Spoken. It Is Vindication Time!

Kathi Pelton

I heard the Lord announce today,

“It’s vindication time!”

The enemy has been served notice and though he is scrambling to hold his ground, he will not prevail! The Lord has spoken!

This vindication will transcend what we see; it refutes the evidence before us that currently points to defeat. God will overturn the tables of evil and vindicate personal lives, as well as national issues. Those who have walked in integrity and not turned from truth will now see vindication come.

I was recently sitting with a couple who had prayed for vindication regarding areas of their lives that the enemy had ravaged, and I kept hearing the Lord say, “I have taken up their cause and I will vindicate them!” These words have come back to me today and are going out to you.

You have cried out like the Psalmist,

“Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have walked in my integrity, And I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.” Psalm 26:1

And soon you will shout out like Jeremiah,

“The LORD has brought about our vindication; Come and let us recount in Zion the work of the LORD our God!” Jeremiah 51:10

This vindication will spread over nations and over people groups because the remnant of God’s people have humbled themselves before the Lord. They have prayed and put their trust in the Lord alone. Now, as in the days of King Hezekiah, we will see God rescue us and the kingdoms of the earth will see that He alone is God!

“Now, O Lord our God, rescue us from his power; then all the kingdoms of the earth will know that you alone, O Lord, are God.” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:19‬ ‭

God will vindicate those whom He has place in positions of authority for such a time as this. He will vindicate the unborn, He will vindicate the fatherless, He will vindicate those who have been falsely accused, and He will vindicate those who have been afflicted and oppressed!

Declare His vindication over your life. Thank Him even now for His full vindication because He has spoken, therefore it is so! Rejoice even now for His gavel has come down and declared your recompense.

Those who have been barren—you will be as Rachel and be found fruitful!

“Then Rachel said, ‘God has vindicated me, and has indeed heard my voice and has given me a son.’ Therefore she named him Dan.” Genesis 30:6

The Hebrew meaning of Dan is “his judgement.” God is rendering His verdict on your behalf and is vindicating you!

Watch in 2019–and beyond—what God does throughout the nations! Watch Japan, watch the United States, watch Egypt, watch Brazil, and watch some of the most oppressive places suddenly turn because a remnant has prayed and trusted in God alone!

This vindication will shift financial structures and cause “dirty money” to turn into pure gold as it is placed in the hands of the righteous. Debts will be paid off and a time of jubilee will occur. Shifts will take place that dispossess strongholds held by the enemy and suddenly the Lord’s Kingdom will come and be established in the most unlikely places. Then, even the media will call it a miracle!

It’s time to dance because it has been announced! This is not a time of “wait and see” but it is a time of rejoicing in our King, for He has spoken!

“Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favor my vindication; And let them say continually, “’The LORD be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.’” Psalm 35:27

HE CRIES JUSTICE

I was looking at our savior’s name this morning and out of the letters within His name, Jesus Christ, came forth three separate words:

HE CRIES JUSTICE

He cries justice over every injustice! Today, let us join His cry and cry out for justice for the unborn. The world’s future sons and daughters and history makers are being extinguished. Cry mercy and cry for justice.

Join in with us and many voices as we become a voice for the voiceless over the next 50 days. To follow this prayer initiative for the unborn go to. https://www.facebook.com/nateandchristy/

You can be a voice that CRIES JUSTICE and mercy!

Do You Feel Stretched?

By Kathi Pelton

As I sat down today to spend my morning time with the Lord, I let out a sigh (in pain) due to the sore muscles that my physical body is experiencing because of a new workout routine I began this week. There are muscles I didn’t even know that I had that ache from being used for the first time in so long.

As I pondered how I would get into a comfortable position the Lord spoke to me,

“Kathi, many of my people are feeling stretched right now. They are experiencing pain as they work spiritual muscles that have not been active before. Tell them that they are gaining strength and they are getting healthy!”

Wow! This season has been a very intentional time of soul healing, spirit strengthening and a holy purification. God has been ridding His people from unhealthy spiritual, mental and emotional behaviors and beliefs. Just like with a physical workout, it can leave you feeling stretched and sore. Learning new ways and new behaviors takes time, energy and discipline.

I find it interesting that I see many believers getting their physical bodies into a healthy place as well over the past several months. The amazing transformations are posted all over social media. Often the natural things will speak of the invisible things and this is one of those times. It is a time of transformation and there is a beautiful grace being extended for those who will respond.

God is preparing His Bride!

Just as Esther was taken through the long process of itreatments to prepare her to go before the king or when Joshua the High Priest’s filthy garments where removed and new, white linens where placed upon him in Zechariah 3; we too are being prepared, beautified, purified and changed to represent our King.

It is causing many to feel stretched emotionally and spiritually but the Lord wants you to know that you are gaining strength and you are getting healthy. The pain is worth the gain! Keep pressing through because there is a great reward. You will walk in greater love, greater authority, deeper intimacy, purity, holiness and your character will represent the character of Christ.

Be aware that there is also a great resistance by the enemy against this work in your life. The enemy does not want to relinquish places that he has occupied in the souls of God’s people. He will try to stir up resistance against the exposing of strongholds of the soul. But those who yield (surrender) to the work of the Spirit will find great freedom. Minds will be renewed, addictions will be broken and wounds will be healed. The very image of Christ that you were created in will emerge with light and beauty.

This is a time of transformation. Invite the Spirit of the Lord to complete this work within you and to help you when it is stretching you and making it difficult to find comfort.

When the world sees you transformed; they will see Jesus!

From Hope Deferred to Desire Fulfilled

By Kathi Pelton

It was August of 1987 I was jolted out of a dream—where my greatest desire had been fulfilled—back into the reality of my constant state of hope deferred. In the dream I held my baby daughter. It hadn’t felt like a typical dream; It seemed I had actually been taken somewhere and held my desire fulfilled for the very first time. I had never felt such love or beheld such beauty. When I awoke it was as if she was torn from my arms, and deep waves of grief flooded my soul.  

 

My husband and I had been trying to conceive a baby for years with no success. We had gone through all the medical tests and the problem was with me. I had been going through fertility treatments for over two years at that point, with no sign of improvement. I’d often find myself wondering why so many women who didn’t want their babies or who considered them “disposable” could conceive but my husband and I, who ached for a baby, were left barren. I knew God had not abandoned us but I did not see His plan in this. 

 

Four months after my beautiful dream, we received a call from a pastor who had recently counseled a fifteen-year-old mother; four months earlier she had given birth prematurely to a little girl and this mother wanted to give her up for adoption. The pastor had heard that we wanted a baby but were unable to conceive, and the Lord put it on his heart to call us and ask if we were interested in adopting this little girl. 

 

We were overwhelmed with excitement and immediately said “yes!” Although it took nine months from the day of that phone call to walk out the miraculous story of getting our daughter, not only did we get to bring her home just before her first birthday, but I was four months pregnant when we did! We found out that she was born the same month I had the dream of holding my baby daughter, and the name that her young birth mother gave her meant “longed for” or “desired one.”

 

Now, thirty years later, I am watching our youngest daughter and her husband face the same pain. After years of trying to conceive a child they are in that painful grip of hope deferred. I see the pain in their eyes and the helpless struggle that her husband feels to comfort his wife as she silently aches inside. As her mom, I keenly understand the pain, the constant ache, and the many thoughts of “Why?”

 

The beauty of my story of adoption and the pain of my daughter’s journey of hope deferred made the recent news of the late-term abortion bill in New York State that much more of a sting. The issue has been before us for decades, but for whatever reason this particular ruling has acted as a tripwire that woke many out of the spiritual stupor of prayerlessness. It ignited a burning desire to see this horrific, defiling waste of life stop. 

 

As I prayed the Lord showed me that the church has been in a continuous “ebb and flow” of prayer regarding the issue of abortion. With every ebb the enemy would take that time to advance his agenda to kill the sons and daughters of tomorrow. His deceptions and lies would advance his cause to rob God, and rob the world, of the very inheritance the Son died for. Each year nearly sixty million abortions occur worldwide. Sixty million! 

 

If that fifteen-year-old girl had given into the “ease” of solving her unwanted pregnancy through abortion, our daughter would not exist. That beautiful baby that fulfilled my greatest longing would have been merely a statistic that only our God truly grieved for. 

 

Most abortions are not performed on teens, but rather women in their young twenties. If only they knew that what they carried in their wombs could fill the arms of a couple that longed to cherish and love a son or daughter! If only they understood that even before this child’s conception, God dreamed of this life, made plans for this life, and knew this life  intimately. 

 

If only we, as His people, had stopped to pray. 

 

Something has happened, and it has awakened the church and awakened women to rise up and fight for these little lives that cannot fight for themselves. Their mothers have been blinded and deceived by the enemy of God, the deceiver who has written a different narrative telling our culture that a life is not a life until it is outside of the womb. God forgive us for our prayerlessness and for not facing the evil giant called abortion. 

 

Together we are now going as one, in the power of His might and the name of His Son, to face this giant until it is defeated. No more ebb and flow, but rather a continuous flow of resurrection power coming from those who have received LIFE!  May the word adoption replace abortion and may hope deferred be replaced by desires fulfilled. 

Choose life!

The Breakthrough Challenge

By Kathi Pelton

Many years ago the Lord began to teach me how to deal with the circumstances that hit all of our lives that produce stress and anxiety and cause our thoughts to be fixed on the things of earth. He challenged me to “take Him at His Word!” Then He led me to Philippians 4:6-7 which says,

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

He then broke it down for me in order to teach me how to live from heaven to earth rather than earth to heaven. First He highlighted the words, “Be anxious for nothing.” My thought at the time was, “Wow, thanks for starting with the hard part!”

But then He said that the key for being anxious for nothing was in verse 7 which reads,

“…and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

He showed me a vision of His peace being placed over my heart (soul) and mind (thoughts). Since anxiety is rooted in our thoughts and emotions first—causing our bodies to react—I realized how much sense this made. I began to pray each day, sometimes numerous times a day, for His peace to guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Then I went before my Prince of Peace and through prayer and supplication made my requests known. Supplication is merely the act of humble and earnest asking. Some definitions of supplication call it “begging” but I discovered that in the absence of anxiety and the presence of peace, it remained a humble posture of asking. Begging is tied to anxiety and doubt that the one receiving the request will respond.

Lastly and most importantly, “…with thanksgiving!” We don’t enter into thanksgiving only when we see results, but we enter into thanksgiving by faith and because He is worthy of all of our thanks. We finish our personal prayer for breakthrough in both peace and praise. It’s like a holy sandwich…prayer and supplication held together by peace and thanksgiving!

These two verses transformed my life! Discovering a life of peace in a world of trials and tribulations changed everything. It didn’t happen overnight but as I took the Lord’s challenge to “take Him at His Word” it caused His Word to become a part of who I am and it rewired my emotions and my mind to be aligned with peace, prayer, and thanksgiving. Every time I find myself feeling the weight of circumstances or experiencing the rumblings of anxious thoughts I go back to praying daily for His peace to be the guard upon my heart and mind. Then I take my requests humbly before Him and spend the rest of my time in thanks and praise. I honestly see amazing breakthroughs in my life and around my life because I have taken Him at His Word and it never comes back void!

Today will you enter into this breakthrough challenge? Will you take Him at His Word and apply it to your life until it becomes a part of who you are? If you do you will mark this day as the day that you began to live in peace and continual breakthrough.

Do Not Let Another Day Go By!

My husband and I were urged by the Lord and a company of international believers to write this book. It was birthed out of the heart of God to see His people come into a greater “oneness with Christ” through the act of yieldedness and surrender.

Every word and every page that was written in this book is straight from His heart. Do not let another day of 2019 go by without reading His invitation into a life of surrender.

The Enemy That You Are Facing Will Be Defeated!

Kathi Pelton

Last night I went into prayer with so many things on my mind; our nation, our children, our hearts…I only knew that God wanted to bring His word and His perspective.

As I waited upon Him I was led to read 2 Kings 18 and 19. These chapters recount the time when King Hezekiah is being mocked and taunted by the Assyrian king who has captured every fortified city in Judah. He mocks King Hezekiah before the people of Jerusalem saying,

“This is what the king says: Do not let Hezekiah deceive you. He cannot deliver you from my hand. Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the Lord when he says, ‘The Lord will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.’” 2 Kings‬ ‭18:29-30‬ ‭

Yet, as we know, Hezekiah goes before the Lord and prays these words,

““It is true, Lord, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.”” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:17-19‬ ‭

The lands that had been captured had put their trust in false gods fashioned by men. But Hezekiah trusted in the One True God who delivered him just as He had promised.

Last night as I went before the Lord to pray for all that I was carrying in my heart (my nation, the unborn, my children, the Church, etc.), Hezekiah’s words from 2 Kings 19:19 poured forth,

“Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, Lord, are God.”” 2 Kings‬ ‭19:19‬ ‭‬‬

We are facing many enemies and the enemy mocks our trust in God; taunting the words that we have heard through the prophets and in the secret place. But our trust is not in man-made gods or the ways of the world…it is in the Lord of All.

I hear Him saying these words,

“Just as in the days of Hezekiah, I will keep My word. I will defeat the enemy who has shouted lies and planted fear into the hearts of men. Continue to trust in Me and watch as I defeat your great enemies.”

This is a time of facing giants and of seeing victories as we put our trust in the Lord. This past November the Spirit of the Lord kept saying to me, “Things are not as they appear.” Though the enemy makes his threats, mocks your faith and plants fear into the atmosphere, remember who your trust is in and do not waver.

THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH WILL KNOW THAT HE ALONE IS GOD!

Declare these words over your life, over your family, over your nation and over the enemy that you are facing. Our trust is not in a god made with human hands but in the God who made those human hands. He will bring the victory.

Build That Wall! An Urgent Call to the Church of America

Kathi Pelton

For a while now I keep seeing in my spirit what looks like the wall in the Book of Nehemiah before it was repaired. The wall was in great disrepair and this disrepair was creating a breach of security. At first I began to pray for people’s souls that had areas of disrepair and breaches within them (allowing the enemy access). But there has been a strong sense that there is more to what I’m seeing than the broken places of the soul in individual lives. Yes, that is definitely a part of it but I knew there was more.

Here in the United States we are in the midst of a government shut down that has happened over the issue of building a wall to secure the borders of our nation. I should have put two and two together to see that the broken down wall I keep seeing in my spirit and the governmental shut down over “building a wall” were connected. Here is why…

Our president has a couple of strong sayings that most of us are aware of. One of them is, “Make America Great Again” and another is, “Build That Wall!” Maybe these are not merely the words of a man but a man giving a message to the Church of America?

I was taken in the Spirit over our nation and I saw a broken down wall. Then I saw a massive angel with a red baseball cap, like the one that our president wears, that said, “Make America Great Again.” This angel was calling out on a bullhorn to the church to come and “Build the Wall!” I immediately knew that this was a wall of prayer. In the distance I could see a huge demonic army laughing and taunting this angel because the church at large had become complacent and unresponsive to the call to “come and build the spiritual wall.” It was like the mocking and taunting that Nehemiah heard as he called for those to rebuild the wall and the gates around Jerusalem.

I immediately understood that this broken down wall of prayer not had caused a spiritual governmental shut down. The government of God, that comes through the church taking her place in prayer and authority to legislate the will of God from heaven to earth, was not operating. Though I did see some groups taking up this assignment, it was not enough to secure our nation from the demonic forces that were planning a complete take-over. These demons understood that the wall of prayer around our nation and even around our president were not secure (had gaps and breaches) and that their plans to “invade” would easily be accomplished.

Today I felt the Lord say, “It is not too late to build the wall!” It is a crucial time for families, churches, groups, ministries, businesses and friends to come together to rebuild the spiritual wall of prayer around our nation and our leaders. It will cause the government of God to come forth (Be reactivated) with authority and it will prevent the enemy from invading our land while pushing back the darkness that has already destroyed many places.

America can be great; great in the eyes of God, but we must build the wall of prayer around our nation and repair the gates of praise. Otherwise, we will look back one day with great regret and say, “Why didn’t we see or hear the Lord in the day of our visitation and the day of invitation?” We will wonder why we didn’t respond to His request to come and build the wall of prayer to secure our nation?

This is not a word of defeat but it is a word of warning that we can no longer ignore. We cannot continue to take for granted the freedoms that we have enjoyed because they are at risk. The unseen powers are a far greater risk than the natural threats. Although the natural threats are being empowered by the unseen powers of darkness.

We must respond and respond now to the angel of the Lord that is calling for us to come and build the wall of prayer and repair the spiritual gates of our nation. Now is the time.

Ask the Lord where He is assigning you and then gather with those who have been assigned to that area and begin to build it up. Pray for our nation, our president, our governmental leaders and pray that American will be great in the eyes of God!

Please share this word so that it will be a “bullhorn” to call us to build the wall!

God is Removing the Stones of the Soul

Kathi Pelton

A number of months ago I heard the Lord speak to me saying that a “sifting” had begun. Though I had an idea of what He was referring to, I also knew that I’d understand more as time went on.

The other night my husband and I were teaching together about the parable of the sower from Luke 8:4-15. When we began to talk about the stoney or “rocky” ground God took me a vision where I saw into many people’s souls filled with rocks. Within these souls were many stones that had been stumbling blocks for them and places that had stopped the seeds of the Spirit that He had planted in their lives from flourishing. The seeds would spring up quickly but then whither because of the stones. Then I saw these people spending their lives rearranging these stones in their souls in order to fit into whatever circumstances they were facing or people they needed to please (or pain they were trying to manage). But the time for rearranging these stones of the soul is over and the Spirit of the Lord is asking to sift these stones out.

Those of you who are weary of “rearranging the stones in your soul” are invited to yield it all to the sifting of His Spirit. He will be faithful to remove the stones that you have been stumbling over for so very long now. He is inviting you to yield your soul to be purged of stones of offense, stones that cause you to stumble and stones that you keep striking your foot against.

As God’s children, your spirit was made alive when you came to life in Christ. You were created to live from your spirit where His Spirit resides within you. The soul must learn to yield fully so that work of the Spirit can thrive…restoring your soul. God desires for the spiritual seeds that are sown into your life to fall upon good soil so that you will yield a harvest of good fruit.

I’ve watched so many people stumbling over stones recently and He wants you to know that it is merely His mercy that is revealing the stones so that you can allow His Spirit to remove them once and for all. Do not be discouraged or become ashamed. Look at the stones and give them to the Stone that the builders rejected…Jesus Christ. He will remove them and transform your life into good soil.

“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth…” Isaiah‬ ‭42:3-4‬

You may feel like a bruised reed or smoldering wick but in faithfulness He will redeem you and establish you in His love. Yield! Don’t run, don’t fight the pain or rearrange the stones. Cry out and surrender to His sifting. He is faithful to do in you what you have not been able to do within yourself.

Love Never Fails

Kathi Pelton

My husband and I have the high honor of being the pastors of the young adults at our local church. Though we have traveled around the world and been a part of global initiatives, serving this group of young adults and watching them learn to walk in love may be one of the highest calls we have walked in.

Recently some of the young women in our group came to us and began to share with deep vulnerability and transparency regarding some of the ways that they have experienced, and even been a part of, areas that violate the description of love in 1 Corinthians 13. They shared how even within the family of God they often have dealt with jealousy and competition. This violation of love has greatly impacted their lives as they were both recipient and perpetrators of this spirit that comes to divide friends and family. These young women decided that they will no longer just tolerate this in their lives or the lives of their friends so together they are humbling themselves before the Lord and one another to shed light on the areas that have violated love.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-7‬ ‭

The enemy knows that LOVE NEVER FAILS therefore he most effectively will target the souls of men (and women) in order to provoke them to embrace thoughts and action that go against God’s love.

Jealousy creates an “instant win” for the enemy, pride aligns the heart with rebellion, demanding your own way divides intimate friends, keeping a record of wrongs fortifies unforgiveness and the list goes on!

But love…love never fails! We must press in and ask the Spirit of the Lord to search our hearts and remove every alignment with attributes and actions that violate love. Within each one of us there are blind spots and areas in our hearts that need greater alignment with the love that God has shown us.

This is a prayer that we can all say that will yield our hearts to the work of the Spirit and uncover the places in our hearts that allow the enemy to bring defeat by violating love.

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24

I long for His people to know and live in the beauty of a love that never fails. We have that in Christ but will Christ have that in us?

The sound of love is the sound of victory for all. The enemy has been drowning out this sound with the noise of gongs. But the Lord is calling out to us, “Silence the cymbals and release the sound that never fails…the sound of love.”

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.” 1 Corinthians 13:1

Come Lord Jesus and teach us love. Remove every violation and agreement with the enemy that has failed us and divided us. Search us and see if there is any offensive way in our hearts and lives. Create in us a clean heart oh God!
