He is Longing Just to Be With You

Kathi Pelton

I awoke this morning experiencing the deep longing of God for His people. It was like the longing of a young man in love and his yearning to be with the one his heart loves.

In the midst of all of the equipping, ministering, growing and refining there is a deeper place that causes all of those things to become more than the “things we do” but rather an overflow of intimacy. There is a longing in the heart of God that is greater than what you do; it is the longing just to be with you. In that place of unbridled intimacy we are compelled to run with Him wherever He goes and do whatever He is doing.

He wants to be known. Not know only by knowledge but to be known in the place of one on one intimacy. He doesn’t only want to be studied but He wants you to experience the depths of His love. Within the chambers of intimacy you will be filled and begin to truly overflow with the love that the world is longing for.

Many religions have good ideas and practices that are appealing to the human soul but there is only one that goes beyond religion into personal relationship and intimacy with that God. Jesus is the doorway to that chamber.

He is longing to spend time with you in the chambers of intimacy. If you don’t know how to go there then ask the Holy Spirit to take you there. Don’t give up because it takes time to move beyond all the distractions of our souls but it is a “worthwhile wait”.

When I was a teenage girl I fell in love for the first time with a young man who had a habit of being “late”. I remember standing for hours looking out our front window to see if he was coming. My heart would pound with longing to see him and when he’d finally arrive it was always “worth the wait”. Will we love Jesus that way? Will we wait and watch until we experience the fulfillment of the desire for intimacy? Though He is never late, often we have to be trained to wait and allow the longings of our heart be awakened.

Today, He is waiting for you. He is looking out Heaven’s window to see if you will come and embrace Him. He has waited a long time, even while you were busy with other things. He waits with His heart pounding in anticipation of taking you in His arms and experiencing mutual love.

He died longing to be with you!

A Sudden Turnaround

Kathi Pelton

Today I saw a whirlwind come down from Heaven to Earth. It touched areas of God’s people’s lives that had been ravaged by demonic storms sent against them. This Heavenly whirlwind was sent to reverse the destruction and bring a divine turnaround.

This will not only affect negative circumstances (reverse them) but it will even change minds from wrong thinking (stinking thinking). It will be a time where those you have earnestly prayed for will suddenly come to their senses. Watch Heaven move on your behalf to do the impossible.

“But the multitude of your enemies will become like fine dust, And the multitude of the ruthless ones like the chaff which blows away; And it will happen instantly, suddenly.” Isaiah 29:5

Recently I received a prophetic word where the person prophesying over me saw a whirlwind that became like a funnel over my life. Great provision came down from Heaven to Earth through this funnel. This is very descriptive of what I saw today. It is interesting that I saw this today because two years ago (1/3/16) my husband, son and I were in a serious head on car accident that has altered my life since that day due to the injuries that I received. I believe that healings will come down to restore bodies as well and that traumas that touched lives will be broken off of the soul.

Say “yes” to this whirlwind coming down to let Heaven invade Earth!

Get Ready to Cross Over in Unity! Do Not Hold Back!

Kathi Pelton

I am hearing the words, “Finish strong in the faith that holds fast to the faithfulness of God!”

Let us finish this year in a corporate posture of unshakable faith. I believe that 2018 will be a year that the body of Christ embarks into a corporate authority that releases miracles.

Many of you are aware of believers throughout the world contending for the healing of two-year old Jaxson Taylor. The ferocity of this battle over his little life is two fold: it is a battle for the destiny of his call and it is a battle against the corporate faith (authority) of the body of Christ. The enemy knows that this victory will raise the bar of faith. DO NOT BACK DOWN!

This battle is not only for little Jaxson and his family, but it is also a battle to see the corporate prayer of faith and the agreement of the army of God, walking in unity, to be expressed in greater measure in order to experience many miracles.

Now is the time to lift your voice and join your family, your friends, and your congregation in agreement with the body of Christ for Jaxson and for the victory of unity. The enemy has rallied his demonic troops in agreement but GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN US THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD!

Do not hold back. Shout, declare, worship, dance, and come into the unity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

We are one as He is One. Let us shake the enemy’s kingdom with the authority of the Kingdom of our God!

The Banqueting Table of Dreams

Kathi Pelton

As I waited on the Lord this morning I was taken to the finest banqueting table that I’d ever seen. It was full of color, creativity and movement. If the Northern Lights could be a banqueting table then this would be it!

I asked the Lord what this represented and His reply was,

“I’ve set a table for ‘dreams and dreamers’ before My people. Come and dream with Me and watch them come alive!”

It was a dream table!

As His people sat down to dream with the Father of Lights, He touched each dream and brought life, motion and momentum to them. Creativity flowed with vibrant colors and Heavenly sounds. The “Master Artist” was sitting at the head of the table as the conductor of this dream orchestra.

As God’s people came to sit at this table it released a greater realm of creativity. As each one added what they carried in their hearts the momentum increased and the beauty became breathtaking. This went into the atmosphere (like the Northern Lights) causing men and women who hadn’t known or heard of the Creator to come and join Him at this table.

This is a time to dream. Dream childlike dreams that are impossible in the natural realm but realized when the supernatural is added. Sit down with the Father of Lights and dream wild and dream big. Let God bring increase to your dream life and set you free of the captivity of the mundane in order to place you into His perfect plans. Your dreams will be an invitation to those in the highways and byways to come!

I see many who feel trapped in the “9 to 5” dead end jobs begin to dream at this table. As they begin to dream with God He brings life and movement to their dreams. It becomes like a resurrection into life for these ones who had lost hope and abandoned the dreams of their youth. Then, suddenly, they are launched into the most incredible journey of their lives. They will feel as though they are dreaming. The captivity of the “patterns of this world” that have dictated limited boundaries will be broken and these dreamers will live in the limitless boundaries of the Father’s good pleasure.

“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.” Luke 12:32

The invitation is sent…come! Come to the banqueting table of dreams.

It’s Time to Come Out of Your Wilderness

Kathi Pelton

I awoke this morning hearing the verse from Song of Songs,

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved? Song of Songs‬ ‭8:5‬(a)

Many of you have gone through a long wilderness period. I, too, went through a three year wilderness time in the late 1990s. It was the hardest time I ever faced as I navigated my way through what I would call my “dark night of the soul”. The amazing thing is that in the most painful and dark time in my journey with Christ I was given the strength to wrestle down the despair that sought to take my life, in order to find the place of “leaning upon my Beloved”. Then He carried me out of the wilderness into a vast and open place.

Although God is not the author of despair, it is not foreign to even the most spiritual of men and women. Yet, in the midst of wilderness times or dark nights of the soul, there is great hope to be found in dependency and intimacy with our Beloved Savior. He does not abandon us in the wilderness but rather He is ever present to calms our fears, comfort our pain, and invite us into His arms of love.

Though I’d never wish my “dark night” onto anyone, I am so grateful that God allowed me to go through the wilderness because it was during that time that I was set free of many strongholds, healed of deep wounds from my childhood, and discovered true intimacy for the first time. It did not come cheap or without many moments of stumbling over the chains that bound me, but in the end I found abundant life as I learned to lean upon my Beloved.

During the last months of my wilderness time I would hear the words from Songs of Songs flowing through my spirit like a declaration of joy from the Throne of God. It was like an announcement of freedom and a completed work in my life. As I came out of the wilderness, leaning with absolute love and dependency upon Jesus, I was greeted with such a Heavenly celebration! The next three years became a manifestation of unexpected and undeserved blessings. I had encounters with God that I didn’t even know were possible and I walked in a favor that was unexplainable.

Today I heard those sweet words from Song of Songs 8:5 once again. This time they weren’t for me but I knew they were for His people who had been through a long wilderness time and learned the beauty of dependency and intimacy. You have let all self-sufficiency fall away and in the midst of the darkness and pain you have learned to lean upon your Beloved.

You too have a celebration of Heavenly encounters awaiting you. An open land awaits you that is filled with favor, desires fulfilled, and great restoration. As you have rejected the fate that the enemy sought for your life through this difficult time and held onto the promises of your inheritance in Christ Jesus it has strengthened you and prepared you to remain pure in the abundant blessings He has in store for you.

I encourage you today to “choose life”. This was a key element for my freedom. I had to reject death and destruction and choose life at a time that I just wanted the pain to end.

“This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20

In the wilderness I found that the Lord was my life and every other thing fell away. Nothing saved me but the Lord! As I chose life, in reality I chose Christ! Prior to the wilderness time I had many things that I chose to comfort me, to fill the empty places and to dream of that took the place of Christ alone. As they fell away during my three years in the wilderness I found Him to be my all-sufficiency. I learned to lean upon my Beloved and desire Him alone. After that other things were added but they did not take His place.

I finish with the following words from Songs of Songs 8 for you to pray,

“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned.” Song of Songs‬ ‭8:6-7‬ ‭

A Time of Fruitfulness and Multiplication in 2018

Kathi Pelton

We are entering into a time where we will see fruitfulness and multiplication. 2017 has been a year of purification and consecration; it has prepared us by ridding us of things that were not aligned with truth and breaking the patterns of the world off our lives.

Purification and Multiplication

The Spirit of the Lord led me to Genesis 35 where God commands Jacob to have his family give up all their foreign gods, purify themselves, and change their garments before settling into a new land. It is no coincidence that God has been doing the same thing in His family over the past year.

After Jacob and his family purified their lives, God moved them to a new land to settle and speaks these words to Jacob,

“And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants.” Genesis 35:11

I hear these words being spoken once again. This is a key verse for 2018. We are a royal people and we will reproduce nations and kings. As we allowed the purification and consecration to change our lives, authority came upon us in new measures that we have not experienced before.

The condition of “infertility” is falling off the body of Christ. We will be fruitful and we will multiply. A sign of this will be that many who have struggled to become pregnant will give birth to sons and daughters. These babies will have a “kingly” anointing on their lives that will carry great leadership and authority.

Oneness With Christ

Corporate prayers, worship, and declaration will release spiritual authority and open up nations and people groups and set many free from the captivity of demonic forces. It is a time to both personally and corporately do only what we see Jesus doing.

By grace, we have been clothed in His purity and righteousness and now our steps and hearts must be aligned with His so that we are united in oneness of spirit with Christ.

“But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” 1 Corinthians 6:17

Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing. His actions often did not make sense to human understanding, and offended established religious traditions. We, too, must align all that we do—personally and publicly—with what God is doing.

We cannot move according to human understanding or according to what appeases religious rules, but rather we must yield ourselves to only do what our Father is doing. We must not break ranks or walk outside of the unity of God (John 17:20-23). What seems “good” to human understanding will not always be God’s direction. Do not seek good; seek God!

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: The Joining of Generations

This is a time of the joining of generations (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) and the time of the restoration of families. Where demonic assignments have brought divisions and separations, now God will restore relationships and join the generations to walk together, prefer one another, and learn from one another. Honor will be given to both the old and the young.

The generations will understand that they need one another and they will yield to that realization. Great strength will come as this happens.

Inheritances Restored

Inheritances will be restored and land will be restored. Joy will fill lives, homes, and even cities.

With the restoration of generations and families we will see the release of lands. This will include lands that belonged to families (and were lost or families were displaced from) and lands (cities and nations) that have been held captive.

Taking the Posture of Mary

As we prepare to move into the new year, allow your posture to be as Mary’s when the angel appeared to her and announced that she would conceive the Messiah (Luke 1:38). She said,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

This is the posture that allows the Spirit to come upon you in order to make you fruitful. As we take this posture as a corporate family it releases great power.

I see families and congregations standing together to pray the words of Mary from Luke 1:38. I encourage you to spend time with those you love and those that you worship with to take communion together and echo the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

El Shaddai…God Almighty

We will settle into a land and place of rest. El Shaddai (God Almighty) will be made known among you and make Himself known through you. You will be fruitful and multiply in the days ahead. The womb has been prepared and 2018 will be a year of birthing what He has placed within you.

Get ready to see:

• Yielded hearts to the will of God

• Fruitfulness

• Multiplication

• Conceptions

• Restorations of families

• Restoration of generations

• Inheritances restored (spiritual and physical—including land)

• Corporate authority increased

• Nations and cities held captive set free

• Unity

We will see the “more than you can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20) manifest in lives, families, and regions.

El Shaddai (God Almighty) will reveal His love and might in 2018!

Can You Hear the Bells?

Kathi Pelton

A few nights ago our family spent the evening watching the Christmas movie, The Polar Express. It is about a young boy who has begun to doubt the existence of Santa Claus. He is taken on a journey to rediscover “belief”.

When he sees Santa’s reindeer and sleigh he cannot hear the sleigh bells. In desperation to hear the sound he begins to say, “I believe, I believe, I believe!” Suddenly he hears the sound of the bells and great joy fills his heart.

On this Christmas Eve the Lord would like to restore to many the belief that they have lost through doubts and fears. Like the young boy in the movie begin to say to your soul, “I believe, I believe, I believe!”

God is not a man that He should lie or withhold His promises. He is forever faithful. Can you hear the bells that announce His goodness to all men? Can you hear the bells that ring out to celebrate our Messiah’s birth 2000 years ago? Can you hear the bells that remind you that Hope has come and will never leave or forsake you?

Believe again! Let this be the day that your ears are opened again and you hear and believe once again. He brings glad tidings of comfort and joy.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

The Lord Woke Me Up to Say, “Have Faith and Keep On Dreaming. Believe!”

Kathi Pelton

I was woken up by the Lord this morning with the words,

“Tell My people to have faith and to keep on dreaming. Tell them to believe!”

Then immediately after hearing those words, the lyrics to a song from Disney’s Cinderella began to flow through my spirit as if someone had turned on a radio. It is a verse from the song, “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” that goes,

Have faith in your dreams and someday

Your rainbow will come smiling through

No matter how your heart is grieving

If you keep on believing

The dream that you wish will come true…

The Lord was singing these words over His precious ones. Like Cinderella, some of you have felt the weight of grief that is causing you great pain and loneliness. Your “Prince” is singing over you so that you will have faith in the dreams that He has put in your heart. Keep on believing because He wants you to know that your dream will come true.

I want to keep this short because the message is clear and I do not need to add anything to it. Dream, have faith and believe! Like a child at Christmas…believe!

God is Releasing to You a Peace that Surpasses Understanding

Kathi Pelton

As I’ve shared many times in my writings, “When you have peace, no matter the circumstances, the warfare ceases.”

The peace of God is a gift that comes to us as we receive the perspective of heaven. There are seasons in our lives of rest and natural abundance and there are seasons that all that we must “strive to enter into His peace and rest.” (Hebrews 4:11)

The one thing that I know as I look back upon my life is that the faithfulness of God is sure and forever true. Often what we see with our eyes is a distortion of what is real, because what is real is not what our eyes can see but what the Lord has said.

Today I saw a short vision of God putting mud upon the eyes of His sons and daughters who were bowed down by the weight caused by what their eyes had seen. It was like the story in John 9 when Jesus spit into dirt to make mud and placed it on the blind man’s eyes. The difference is that in my vision all of these people could see. As I asked the Lord why He was putting mud on the eyes of those who already had their sight, He replied,

“Their physical sight has been what has blinded them from having spiritual sight.”

This mud was opening the eyes of their spirit so that they could see the perspective of heaven and the faithfulness of God. As their spiritual eyes were opened, peace rushed in like a cleansing flood.

We know that the enemy sends great distractions upon the earth in order to gain attention. We must, in faith, fix our gaze on the unseen. We must believe in the impossible and hold fast to what the world calls foolishness.

I want to share a recent personal experience that we are walking through even now.

My husband and I have been a part of a forty-day initiative, that ended on the last night of Hanukkah (December 20) called “The Yielding”. We were the writers for the entire forty day period. The Yielding was embraced by a global representation of the body of Christ and many lives have transformed during this time. It was an honor to serve Him and His people in this way.

Over the forty days we received messages of thanks and gratitude but we also received messages from a number of our monthly supporters saying that due to circumstances beyond their control that they could no longer support our ministry. In forty days we lost $800.00 in monthly support.

BUT THAT IS NOT MY TESTIMONY! My testimony is that throughout this happening we remained (and still remain) in perfect peace. Not only do we have peace but we have such a strong and confident assurance of His faithfulness that there is even an excitement of what He is about to do.

God, in His amazing grace and mercy, has put mud upon our eyes throughout the years that has brought us to this point of peace. It is the peace that surpasses our understanding. The old warfare of “what ifs” and the dread that defiles faith has been washed away and replaced with peace.

I want to declare over you that the peace of God will guard your heart and mind. I hold fast to this verse from Philippians 4:6-7,

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

His peace is a guard and shield against the arrows of fear and anxiety that come through natural circumstances. It is like the helmet for our minds and the breastplate over our hearts.

God is with you at this very moment to put the mud over your eyes so that you might see the unseen, so that you will believe for the unbelievable and so that you might have peace that surpasses understanding.

Philippians 4 goes on to exhort us with these words,

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:8-9‬ ‭

Do not dwell on negative circumstances or the flying arrows. Do not fix your eyes on the chaos that surrounds you but rather, “Look up!” There is a view that is pure and full of promise. It is the perspective of heaven that pulses with God’s heartbeat of faithfulness. It is the sight that provokes praise and the place where peace flows like a mighty river to wash away the debris of anxious thoughts. He is putting mud upon your eyes today so that you can see again with the eyes of your spirit.

“But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭13:16‬ ‭

Today, be blessed with eyes that see and lead you upon the paths of peace.

It Is Completed!

Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

We have been invited into the complete work of the cross. Over the past forty days a remnant of the global family of God has received the invitation to yield their body, souls, and spirits to that completed work. It has been a supernatural work of the Spirit, partnered with our prayer,

“Not my will but Your will be done.”

God gave instruction to Israel, and also, to us: “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” (Leviticus 11:44-45; 1 Peter 1:15-16). We have been yielding to the Lord to bring us into an encounter of greater purity and intimacy.

Yet so often we’ve bowed our heads in despair rather than lifting our hands in surrender as we looked upon our human weakness. Even this season of “yielding” that we have taken part in could have become a source of discouragement if we allow ourselves to be measured by any human understanding of God’s commands to us.

But here is a precious truth: Our Father wants us to be holy even more than we want to be holy.

“Then I will sprinkle clean water on you and you will be clean from all your uncleanness and from all your idols. Moreover I will give you a new heart. I will put a new spirit within you. I will remove the stony heart from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Ruach within you. Then I will cause you to walk in My laws, so you will keep My rulings and do them. Then you will live in the land that I gave to your fathers. You will be My people and I will be your God. So I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful. I will not bring a famine upon you.”

(Ezekiel 36:25-29 TLV)

The same promise is spoken in Jeremiah 31:32,

“I will put My Torah within them. Yes, I will write it on their heart. I will be their God and they will be My people.”

So, the cleansing He has done this season has been a work of His own hand, by His authority, according to His power and mercy. And, we are astonished to discover that our great and awesome God wants us. He desires to fellowship with us, because we are His treasure and we belong to Him—corporately and individually. He has called us each of us by name, so that we become aware of His individual concern and care. He nurtures and protects and cherishes us.

Every unique individual bears an imprint of the Eternal, and He loves the personality and gifts and expressions He has placed within each of us. Before creation—before anything was—He prepared promises and treasures for each of us, to give Him glory and bring us pleasure and fulfillment.

These gifts, and the close fellowship with our Maker, create who we are and release wonder in the earth. He does not stand in opposition to us because of our weakness; rather, He is for us, and nothing can condemn or stand against us.

So, at the end of these forty days, with the eyes of our hearts open and filled with light, we see Joshua the high priest, no longer condemned, but clothed in purity because the Holy One decreed it. We see the menorah in the temple glowing brightly, miraculously, with pure oil, day after day, because the Holy One created it.

We see ourselves, cleansed and purified and fully clothed in righteousness because of our Savior. We are ravished by His love; we are fearfully and wonderfully made; and we are beckoned to continue into the romance of becoming one spirit with Him, joined forever.

First love has been restored and becoming one spirit with our precious Savior has been completed by the miraculous power of His Spirit who lives within us. We have yielded to our King and He has been faithful to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. We prayed, like Mary,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

It has been done and is now complete. Our Messiah came and purified our lives and created a resting place for Himself in each of our lives. Our light shines brightly—just as the Son—for all the world to see.

We complete these forty days of yielding with the knowledge that we have crossed a threshold into a new realm where the shadows of old have passed away and unfiltered light shines like a lamp stand in a darkened world. We declare today,

“Joy to the world, the Lord has come! Let Earth receive her King. Let every heart prepare him room and Heaven and nature sing!”

May peace and joy, and the depth, height, and width of His love rest upon you and your loved ones. The King has received and responded to our yielding!

Amen~

(Day 40: The Yielding)
