He Rescues and Saves

Kathi Pelton

During our Easter Sunday worship service, a stanza from one of the songs released healing and hope throughout the room. The words were,

“Shout it out and lift up one voice in worship

Sing it out until all the earth can hear it

Jesus is alive and He saves, He rescues and saves” (From “You Have Won Me” Bethel Music)

Each time we sang out the words, “He rescues and saves” I could feel a rush of love and healing flow. It would wash over us and bring resurrection life.

He wants you to know that He rescues and saves! He heals and delivers. He loves with a love that will never fail and never end. I release upon you the rush of healing love that we experienced yesterday as we sung out these words. He is alive and He rescues and saves.

Sound carries beyond the time and space where it was first released so we know that the sound released in our service yesterday has gone forth and continues to heal. Love has a sound and all of its qualities and characteristics go forth without end whenever it is released. This is a time to let the sound of our Bridegroom go forth loud and clear. Let’s fill the air with the words, “Jesus is alive and He rescues and saves.”

Sing it over your life, your family and your city! There is no sweeter sound!

Entering Into Your True Identity

Kathi Pelton

When Jesus went to the cross, taking all guilt, sin, and shame upon Himself, He also took the counterfeit identity that sin brought upon mankind. He took the identity of a criminal, a fraud, and a blasphemer; and that identity was nailed to the cross with Him so that we could come into His true identity of “sonship.”

He is the first Son and through Him we are brought into true sonship that draws us into the oneness that the Father, Son, and Spirit share. We no longer live under the counterfeit identity that sin placed upon us that calls us slaves. A spirit of adoption was freely given to us through what Jesus did on the cross.

We are no longer beggars, orphans, or slaves; but true sons and daughters. Just as the blood of the lamb upon the doorposts of the Israelites identified them as God’s people (causing the angel of death to pass them by), so the Blood of the Lamb upon your life identifies you as a true son or daughter.

It is time to live in your true identity. Jesus Himself paid for it! Hebrews 12:24 says,

“…the blood of Jesus speaks a better word…”

It speaks the word of sonship, adoption, betrothal, and acceptance. You are chosen and wanted. You are deeply desired and longed for. YOU ARE HIS!

As we remember the precious blood that was shed for our redemption, may we honor what He did by receiving all that He obtained for us. Leave the shackles of captivity and celebrate the “better word.”

Resurrection is available for all who come and receive the blood that sets men free. As we celebrate Easter, allow every place of the old man and old identity to die so that your true identity can be resurrected.

The Harm That The Enemy Has Planned For You Is Now Being Turned Upon Him

Kathi Pelton

The enemy loves to hold people in a place of captivity. He plots evil against them and then carries out those plans upon unsuspecting victims. But we are not “unsuspecting” and we are not “victims.” We know the intentions of the evil one and we are not victims; we stand as victorious sons and daughters of the Holy One. God is one step ahead of the enemy and He reveals His plans which cause the enemy to be caught in his own traps.

Though you may feel as though the enemy has triumphed over you, know this…God will set you free. He has given the enemy an ultimatum and what the evil one has sent against you will be turned upon him and his camp! You are about to be set free and you will carry the plunder of Egypt with you.

Tonight is the first night of the Jewish celebration called Passover. Passover celebrates the remarkable event of deliverance, where God turned around the captivity of His people into a night that is to be remembered for all time.

The Israelites had been in captivity for 430 years when Moses arrived on the scene to lead them into their miraculous deliverance. After Moses went to Pharaoh time and time again with the Lord’s demand, “Let my people go!”; the tenth and final time turned everything around.

“Then Moses confronted Pharaoh: “ GOD ’s Message: ‘At midnight I will go through Egypt and every firstborn child in Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, to the firstborn of the slave girl working at her hand mill. Also the firstborn of animals. Widespread wailing will erupt all over the country, lament such as has never been and never will be again. But against the Israelites—man, woman, or animal—there won’t be so much as a dog’s bark, so that you’ll know that GOD makes a clear distinction between Egypt and Israel.’” Exodus‬ ‭11:4-7‬ ‭MSG

Once again Pharaoh hardened his heart against the God of Israel; instead he put his trust in the gods of Egypt and in the kingdom he had created on the backs of God’s chosen people. But God would use this tenth time to be the time that the thief is plundered.

“Moses assembled all the elders of Israel. He said, “Select a lamb for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop and dip it in the bowl of blood and smear it on the lintel and on the two doorposts. No one is to leave the house until morning. GOD will pass through to strike Egypt down. When he sees the blood on the lintel and the two doorposts, GOD will pass over the doorway; he won’t let the destroyer enter your house to strike you down with ruin.” Exodus‬ ‭12:21-23‬ ‭MSG

The blood of the lamb was smeared upon every doorpost of the Israelite’s home. When God struck down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, not one of the homes that had the blood of the lamb upon its doorpost was touched. Their homes were “passed over”. As the Egyptians experienced the death of every firstborn, they began to shout for the Israelites to go…to be free.

A second “tenth” warning has been issued against the enemy that demands that God’s people are set free to worship Him and to live in the abundant life that God has promised. What happened before is happening again. God is declaring an ultimatum that says, “Let My people go or everything that you have sent against them will come upon you!”

Two tens takes us to John 10:10,

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

This year is a year that Passover and Good Friday fall upon the same day. The blood of the lamb and the blood of the Lamb were poured out to set us free from the captivity of the enemy and the captivity of sin and death. Today is that day!

Declare the blood of the Lamb over you and over your household. Anoint your doorpost, your head, and your heart with the blood that sets you free and causes the plans of the enemy to pass you by. Today is a day of freedom, a day of rejoicing, a day of dancing, and a day of deliverance.

Declare the words from Psalm 3 over your life today, this day of Passover,

Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side. Arise, Lord! Deliver me, my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked. From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.” Psalm‬ ‭3:1-8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Freedom!

Amazing Grace Will Set You Free

Kathi Pelton

My husband and I went to see the movie, “Paul, Apostle of Christ” yesterday. As I was watching it Paul spoke the words from Romans 5:20,

“…where sin abounds, grace abound more exceedingly.”

I love the way that The Message translates Romans 5:20-21:

“All that passing laws against sin did was produce more lawbreakers. But sin didn’t, and doesn’t, have a chance in competition with the aggressive forgiveness we call grace. When it’s sin versus grace, grace wins hands down. All sin can do is threaten us with death, and that’s the end of it. Grace, because God is putting everything together again through the Messiah, invites us into life—a life that goes on and on and on, world without end.” Romans‬ ‭5:20-21‬ ‭

So often believers try to deal with areas of sin in their lives through putting “laws” upon their lives that demand a ceasing of the unlawful activity and yet find that they still continue to violate the law that they’ve placed upon themselves. Sometimes the stronger they try to enforce the self-imposed law, the worse the sin becomes.

I have a suggestion if this is you or you know someone who is dealing with an area of sin that they have not been able to find freedom from. Let God impose His grace upon you.

It was by grace that you were saved and it is the same grace that will set you free from the sins that have sought to imprison you and then condemn you as “guilty.” Jesus paid the ultimate price for your sin, He paid the price that we could not pay and took both the sin and the guilt upon Himself so that you can be set free…by grace!

Sin brings death and grace gives life. Law brings more sin and grace sets you free. Today receive life by receiving His life-giving grace. In place of your self-imposed law receive the grace that was paid for by the One who knew no sin.

Choose life by choosing to allow grace to wash over you. Law merely proves you guilty—causing sin to abound all the more—but grace declares you innocent and sets you free.

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Deuteronomy 30:19

God desires only to give you life and blessings…for you and your descendants. Law (or religion) demands a price for your sin but Jesus already paid that price, so why are you still imposing law and penalty against what has already been paid for? Choose life today by choosing the grace that sets you free.

Do you remember the words to the old familiar hymn “Amazing Grace”? Sing them over your life today, sing them over your struggle and the sin that has sought to declare your guilt. His amazing grace has already declared your innocence by paying the full price of your sin. Receive His amazing grace.

“Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now am found

T’was blind but now I see

T’was Grace that taught my heart to fear

And Grace, my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares

We have already come.

T’was grace that brought us safe thus far

And grace will lead us home

Amazing grace, How Sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost but now am found

T’was blind but now I see

This amazing grace is the power that will set you free.

Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up

Kathi Pelton

As I sat down to write today I immediately heard these words sung in my mind,

“Grey skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face.”

Then the Spirit of the Lord spoke saying,

“Do not let the momentary grey skies define your day. The promises that I have made are true and sure. Allow faith to cause your face to smile again.”

We can smile even when the shadows come to cast doubt upon the promises that God has made. We know that our God is above every cloud of gloom that wants to dictate a different story and cause our souls to begin to doubt.

“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6

Doubt is like a grey sky. It is an enemy that creates mental conflict that leads directly to fear. And fear is a not merely a grey sky but a black, raging storm that tosses its victims relentlessly. On the other hand; faith and assurance are like the sunrise of a new day that dispels darkness; bringing hope and peace. Peace calms and carries you through the day, making your heart glad again.

If you are experiencing a grey sky today, do not let it dictate doubt to you. Put doubt under your feet and smile in assurance that the faith that you have been standing in is your reality. Let His hope and peace carry you above the clouds to where you can experience the Son in the fullness of His light.

God’s sons and daughters are not restrained to live under physical and earthly circumstances but we have been given access to heavenly places. It is there that we can “bask in the Son”. This is where our hearts are made happy and a smile returns to our faces.

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” Proverbs 15:13

Let your spirt soar above the grey skies so that you can sing a new song. Clarity is in the heavenly places where nothing blocks the Son and where He gives wisdom for every step ahead. I hear a new song and a new stanza being sung,

“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,

I can see all obstacles in my way

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

It’s gonna be a bright, bright Sun-Shiny day.”

Smile…it’s gonna be a “Son-Shiny” day!

Watch As God Scatters Your Enemies

Kathi Pelton

The past few days I have been awake throughout the night on a prayer and prophetic assignment. If there has been one theme throughout this time that has stayed with me, it is this truth:

“When God is lifted up, His enemies scatter!”

This happens as we lift up Jesus in our personal lives, in our families, and within our regions and nations. Though we know that all victory and authority has already been secured by the death and resurrection of our Savior, Christ Jesus, we still live in a world that is gripped by the prince of this world who seeks to rob the inheritance that Jesus died for.

As we, the people of God (His sons and daughters…His bride), enthrone Him as King and lift Him up in worship, declaration, lifestyle, and prayer, we set the stage where He can arise to bring His Kingdom to earth. It is then that we see demonic enemies scatter so that we can occupy that place with His Kingdom. It is the place where “on earth as it is in heaven” happens and transformation occurs for individuals as well as for territories.

When we allow the enemy to promote his false narrative through our agreement with unbelief, doubt, and fear, we effectively give ground for a greater robbery of God’s inheritance. We must stop aligning our words and lifestyles in agreement with the evil one, thereby bringing accusation against our God. There is far too much destruction and trauma being released due to God’s people listening to the wrong narrative and then coming into agreement with it.

There is one truth that is to be the declaration and proclamation of every believer. It is that Jesus is faithful and true! God is not a man, so he does not lie, but He is faithful from generation to generation.

“God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?” Numbers‬ ‭23:19‬ ‭NLT‬

No matter what my eyes have seen in this world, I will declare the truth of who He is all the days of my life. Will you commit to do the same?

It is time for the bride to reread Revelation 4 and remind ourselves who God is. He is holy and true, He is full of power and might, HE IS WORTHY! He invites us, “Come up here” in order to see Him as He is. As we arise and are seated in heavenly places with Him, He will arise on earth and we will see His enemies scatter.

Declare who He is in the midst of the contrast of what you see. Do not ever align with the lies that come against who He is. God is arising in your heart and your life, causing your enemies to scatter.

“Rise up, O God, and scatter your enemies. Let those who hate God run for their lives. Blow them away like smoke. Melt them like wax in a fire. Let the wicked perish in the presence of God. But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the Lord — rejoice in his presence!” Psalms‬ ‭68:1-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

He Has Promised to Prosper You and Not Harm You

Kathi Pelton

God’s promises are real! Do you believe that? His promises of blessings and help are not just nice words to give you false hope but they are promises from God and He cannot lie!

Human hope is more of a “wish” than Biblical hope which is “assurance” but many believers live expecting adversity and lack and “hope” (wish for) a more positive outcome.

I had the privileged of spending a number of years as a part of Patricia King’s team in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. I think the one of the most powerful thing I received during those years was her constant conviction that said,

“If you put your faith out for lack that is what you will get but if you put your faith in His promises then you will receive what He has promised.”

Our family has spend many of years in full time ministry, being paid through the generosity of those who were moved by the Holy Spirit to support us. In the early days I would spend more time fretting and worrying that we would lack then believing what He promised. This was often how things ended up which reinforced my fear and doubts. It is where I put my “faith”. God dealt with me according to His love and did a deep work in my heart that moved me from fear to true faith. True faith releases the hope that assures the good result (fruit).

God walked me through a process that took my life from fear to peace. It is a peace that surpasses what my eyes see or my mind understands. It is a peace that is founded in the truth that it is my Father’s good pleasure to keep His promises and to bless me with all the benefits of being His daughter. It is not your Heavenly Father’s desire to harm you in any way…it is His great desire to bless you with every good and perfect gift.

One of the things that I discovered as He began to walk me out of the bondage of fear was to show me who He is as a Father. I was operating out of an orphan spirit; the poverty spirit is like conjoined twins with the orphan spirit. They walk hand in hand (or head to head); always believing that the Father seeks to punish, demand performance and then leave you suffering with lack, confusion and harm. The person with an orphan spirit deeply desires to be wanted and yet finds it inconceivable that they actually can be wanted or loved. The orphan spirit chains the believer to unbelief because it cannot coexist with the true love of the Father or the peace that comes from this truth. The poverty spirit easily coexists with the orphan spirit because they both are founded on lies, doubt, unbelief and hope deferred.

When I was set free from the orphan spirit the poverty spirit had to go as well. I began to KNOW and BELIEVE every promise of God. Rather than spend my nights in a sleepless state of trying to figure out how I would find my way out of constant pending disappointment and lack; I was able to lay my head down at night knowing that my Heavenly Father had everything I needed and even things that I desired for me. I didn’t have to have a back up plan or try to convince myself that God was good but somehow I was bad and deserved this treatment. My faith had been based on outcome; not His promises.

Do you dare to believe with the hope that assures that God (Your Father) desires to prosper you and not harm you? The Word of God is 100% truth! You can lay down tonight knowing that He will keep His promises.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

11 For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. 12 When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. 13 When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, 14 I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord says to you tonight, “My child, you can rest assured of my love and promises for good and not evil in your life. Only believe.”

The words “Rest Assured” means that you will receive the best of care…this is the truth!

Finding Your Way In This New Season

Kathi Pelton

Our family is from Santa Rosa, California, where massive fires occurred this past October leaving thousands of homes burned and miles of areas unrecognizable. After the fires, we visited our hometown and drove through the area that was hit the hardest. It was the neighborhood where we raised our children and owned a home; it contained the park that we often relaxed and played in; it was where our sister and her family lived and where some of our dearest friends lived. And it was all gone.

As we drove through the streets, trying to find the home that we had owned, we became disoriented and confused. Every familiar landmark, house, and tree was gone. Even many street signs were melted away. When we found our old driveway (the house was gone), it did not even resemble what we knew it had looked like. All of the trees were gone—the redwood trees, the oak trees; and every sign of life had been incinerated. Every neighbor’s house was gone too. We found ourselves unsure if we were in the right place until we saw the address number painted on the curbside. Finding our way apart from the old and familiar landmarks was like trying to find our way in a foreign land.

Yesterday I spoke with Garris Elkins about this strange journey “home” and how it made me realize that we must have our familiarity and direction in Jesus in order to find our way in this world; especially in this new season. The world is ever-changing, but our God never shifts or changes. He is our “true north”. He is our one constant and sure marker on our journey “home.”

The entire body of Christ has experienced a shift and it happened about the same time as those fires (as we passed through Rosh Hashanah). What we knew before, and how we functioned before, no longer was relevant. It was a time of laying everything down, submitting ourselves to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and yielding our lives anew to His directions and His “markers” for this new season.

Like the address number on the curb that confirmed our location, so Jesus is the marker that we continually look to as we find our way. Our steps, our paths, our words, and our ways must be guided by Him alone.

“Your own ears will hear him. Right behind you a voice will say, ‘This is the way you should go,’ whether to the right or to the left.” Isaiah‬ ‭30:21‬

This is how we must walk! We must take His hand like a child traveling with their father, and walk step by step beside Him. We must listen to the Holy Spirit and obey each instruction, not going our own way—or even following the old, familiar ways. This is the path of blessing, fruitfulness, and abundant life. This is the obedience that brings heaven to earth. This is the life that reveals Jesus and brings light in the darkness.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19

Don’t Stop! Victories Are Imminent

Kathi Pelton

I woke up this morning with these words singing in the background of my mind,

“Day and night, night and day let incense arise…”

It is my deepest cry that our God receives the incense of worship, prayer, our deepest affections, and fully surrendered lives every moment of every day. There is truly no better place to live than in the place of being a “burning one” who, through surrender, has become one with the One who gave His all.

As I heard these words upon waking what rose up in my spirit immediately were the words for His sons and daughters, “Don’t stop! Don’t give up!”

It was like a shout from the hosts of Heaven to His people on earth. The incense of your life is affecting the atmosphere. As you allow the scent of Christ to rise from your life, it releases an incense that brings heaven to earth and causes demons to flee. God in you and pouring forth from you shifts the atmosphere and releases the supernatural into the natural world around you.

He is worthy of it all! Let your praises arise today and do not hold back. Let no one and nothing stop you from releasing the incense of praise. Don’t stop! Don’t be stopped. This is the way that you move into alignment with heaven. Fill the earth with His glory.

The angels are even now taking down the enemies that have come against you. Our Warrior King has gone out to fight for His inheritance. Your position is to let your “incense arise”.

“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!” 2 Chronicles 20:17

Be still and watch God bring forth victory after victory. Don’t stop, for your God is mighty in battle and He deserves the glory.
