Are You Downcast? Tell Your Soul To Hope in God!

by Kathi Pelton

Today the Spirit began to speak to me out of Psalm 42 regarding those whose souls are cast down and whose trust have begun to doubt God’s promises and lose hope in His ability to save.

David was familiar with the kind of warfare that wears the soul down. In verses 5 & 6 he says,

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God.”

‭‭David speaks from his spirit into his heart and soul; telling himself to put his trust in god and to praise Him again…because God is his Savior!

Many of you are in a time of great opposition and contention that has been sent to cause you to doubt, lose hope and stop praising. Just last week the Lord showed me in a dream that the attack against so many of God’s people right now is a direct attack against “putting their trust in God.”

(Click here to read that word: https://oceansinthedesert.com/2019/05/30/42906/)

Psalm 42 goes on to say these words,

““O God my rock,” I cry, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I wander around in grief, oppressed by my enemies?” Their taunts break my bones. They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?”” Psalms‬ ‭42:9-10‬ ‭

The enemy not only sent opposition and enemies against David but then he mocks him with deep oppression and accusations, saying, “Where is this God of yours?”

But David responds to who he knows God to be. His words paint a picture of a man standing up out of the stupor of oppression and hopelessness by saying,

“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!” Psalms‬ ‭42:11‬ ‭

Many of us need to stand up in hope, trust and courage at this time. We must shake off the stupor of doubt and discouragement and “praise Him again”—for He will indeed save His chosen ones!

Even now the spirit of Joshua and Caleb is being released in our land. It is the spirit that says no to doubt, says no to hopeless despair and stands up against the giants. It says, “In God I trust!”

It releases the spirit of the overcomer and the spirit of bold courage in the midst of contradicting circumstances. It is the “holy yes” in the midst of a fiery furnace of adversity that says, “Bow to the god of this world and lose hope in God.” Instead we say, “I will not bow under the weighty pressures that so many are bowing under in this hour but I will arise and shout praise because I know that He who promised me is faithful.

“By faith Sarah herself also received the ability to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:11‬ ‭

We can judge God according to our circumstances or we can judge (discern, consider) God according to who we know that He is in the midst of our circumstances! He is faithful and we must put our trust in Him alone and “praise Him yet again!”

May your spirit stand up in the midst of your soul being bowed down and praise Him! Put your full trust in Him and watch what He will do. This is a time to shout and to release a roar! The Lion of Judah is with you and you will overcome.

Prophetic Dream For America

Kathi Pelton

Last night I arrived in Washington DC and as we drove by the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, lit up against the night sky, I could feel the longing of God for our nation begin to swell in my spirit. I went to bed last night with intercession for our nation stirring within me.

When I fell asleep I went into a significant, prophetic dream.

The Dream:

I was with the group of international prophets meeting together in our nation’s capital. We were seeking the Lord together for the United States. In the dream I asked the Lord what He wanted to say to us and as I asked I was suddenly taken to an aerial view of Washington DC. Then this aerial view was transposed onto a large silver coin. Then the Spirit of the Lord asked me, “What is your nation’s motto?” I answered, “In God We Trust.” As I spoke the words they appeared upon the silver coin. The Spirit then said, “This is what will save your nation.”

Then, in the dream, I was taken to see many in the body of Christ who were interceding for our nation, who were prophesying over our nation, who were standing with our nation or living in our nation. As I looked upon them they were under severe personal attacks. I asked the Lord why there was such an attack against His people at this time. He answered my saying, “Their ‘trust’ in Me is under attack. If the enemy can cause My people to lose their trust in Me then He can win the battle for your nation. The key to victory is found in the words, ‘In God We Trust.’”

In the dream I began to prophesy what I had just seen and as I did I began to repeat over our nation and over His people and over my life the words, “In God We Trust! In God I trust!” Then the Lord said something that shot through my spirit like a bolt of lightening. He said, “It only takes a remnant to win this battle for your nation! A remnant that will put their trust in Me!”

As He spoke these words; life and hope surged through me with such victorious power. The words, “It only takes a remnant.” repeated over and over in my spirit until it began to pour out of me with the Spirit of prophesy upon them.

Understanding the Dream:

There was more to the dream that I may share later but I will save that for another time. What I want you to understand from this dream is that the attack against you has been a direct attack against your trust in the Lord! It may have taken the form of health issues, financial lack, relational issues or even mental/emotional attacks but what the enemy is after is your trust in God!

You are a part of the remnant that will rise up and say, “In God I trust and in God we trust.” These words and this posture is the key to seeing this established in our nation. What appears to be a personal attack is in fact an attack against America and her key to victory. The inscription on our coins is the key to purchase back our nation for God.

Within the dream I was with international leaders that I recognized from Canada, Israel, Germany, Asia, Japan and many other nations. They were all standing with us in our nation’s capital because they knew that the time was now to stand with our nation. The victory in America was also a victory for their nations. They felt the weight of the Lord’s longing for them to join us and stand with the United States until we gained the victory. They brought their “trust” as a part of the remnant that would turn our nation back to God.

Conclusion:

No matter what you are facing or battling, know this: it is a battle for your trust! Rise up and put doubt under your feet! Put every word of accusation against the Lord and all circumstantial evidence that has been raised against Him under your feet and stomp it out with the words, “In God We Trust!”

Let these words rise over your life and rise over our nation with the incense of intercession and prophetic declaration! Let the remnant arise and put their trust in God alone. It only takes a remnant to arise and see a nation saved!

“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

“Here I Am; Send Me!” This Is A Time Of Being Commissioned and Sent

by Kathi Pelton

I saw the hand of the Lord touching individuals and placing assignments upon their lives. He has been repositioning many and now I saw Him commissioning them.

It reminded me of when God appointed and commissioned Jeremiah as a prophet to nations,

““I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:5‬ ‭

Jeremiah’s response to this was to dispute God’s choosing saying that he was too young. God answered Jeremiah by saying,

“The Lord replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the Lord, have spoken!” Then the Lord reached out and touched my mouth and said, “Look, I have put my words in your mouth!” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:7-9‬ ‭

He is the one who appointed you, even before you were born! This is the time of commissioning. It is He alone that will fill your mouth to stand and speak in the places that He will send you. It is His favor that will make a way for you, not your own strength. He is God and there is no other; therefore, He will be sovereign to accomplish through you that which you could never do yourself.

I remember many years ago being in a worship service and hearing the Lord ask me if I would go wherever He wanted to send me. I wholeheartedly responded with the words, “Here I am; send me.” I had little idea what those five words would release upon my life.

I think that at the time that I spoke them I didn’t truly believe that He’d use me in any significant way. I was a housewife and mother of young children who ministered on a local church staff. But God does not make anyone for insignificance! He put His words in my mouth and now has sent me and given me courage to trust His strength as I have stood before nations.

This was not because I am the most gifted to do this or the most qualified. Actually it is quite the opposite. I am the least qualified but it is God who appoints and commissions, and us who says, “Here am I; send me.”

Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Whether you are called, like Jeremiah, to prophecy to nations or you are called to be His voice in the marketplace, do not fear because He will fill your mouth with His words.

One thing that I have learned in my walk is utter dependency. As a young girl I had terrible stage fright. I remember being asked to sing a solo in a school concert and when it came time to sing it no sound would come out of my mouth. Fear blocked my voice and though my lips moved no sounds came forth. To this very day if I put any dependency upon myself that old fear will return. As I trust Him to fill my mouth then what comes forth is even surprising to me; for it is Him and not me.

Dependency and yielding to His Spirit is key to whatever gift and calling He places upon your life.

You have been appointed and now many of you have been positioned. Suddenly you will be commissioned! Get ready for the great commission to come upon your life and give you influence to the place and people that He has called you to.

“For many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14

Allowing your life to remain in Christ through the waiting and preparation is what positioned you to be chosen. Jeremiah had a choice regarding being a prophet to nations. When God said to him,

““Get up and prepare for action. Go out and tell them everything I tell you to say. Do not be afraid of them, or I will make you look foolish in front of them.” Jeremiah‬ ‭1:17‬

He had a choice! He was chosen and he obeyed the call and was commissioned. Many are called but few choose to follow. You have stood the test of time and said yes to His call. You will go forth as one of the few and see many saved, changed and then, they too, will become one of the few.

Do not be afraid for He is with you! Do all that He has asked you to do and watch the victories come forth.

Has A Mountain Been Raised Before You? It’s Time To Take It Down!

by Kathi Pelton

Yesterday our worship set had two songs that the Lord used like weapons of warfare in our midst. The first song was Bethel Music’s “Raise A Hallelujah” and the second song was an Elevation Worship song called “Do It Again”.

As we sang, danced and declared the words to these songs the atmosphere as was electric with a faith-filled, overcoming authority that was “raising praise higher than the mountains raised against us!”

In the song, “Raise A Hallelujah” there is a section where the words, “Sing a little louder…” are repeated again and again as the voices build. As we sang those words louder and louder; raising our voices above the voices that shouted from the mountains of opposition, it was like watching the mountain crumble before our eyes. The shadows that the mountains had cast to darken the light of truth was removed and suddenly I found myself standing on top of the mountain “raising a Hallelujah!”

Unbeknownst to me, the next song would be “Do It Again.” This song is about how God will do once again what He has done in days past. One of the lines declares these words,

“I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

You made a way, where there was no way

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again”

As we sang and declared these words corporately there was so much faith in the room. Then I heard the Lord say,

“Have everyone stand on top of the mountain of opposition that has been raised against them. Then have them raise their Hallelujahs higher and louder than all that is under their feet and watch as it crumbles.”

We did! We all used the mountains that stood before us to take us higher as we “Raised a Hallelujah” to the One who levels the mountains! We lifted Him higher and as we did He lifted us above what stood against us.

This morning I awoke with the Lord saying,

“Invite them all to join in!”

He is inviting you to put that mountain that has been raised up to oppose you under your feet and from that place to raise your Hallelujah! Declare that He will remove the mountain once again. Let your faith arise, let your song arise, let your voice be heard, let light break through…let your praise be raised higher than the mountain!

Don’t stop! Sing a little louder! Dance on it, shout from it and watch Him do it again!

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

It’s Not “Either/Or” but “Both/And”

by Kathi Pelton

So much of life with Christ is not found in an “either/or” answer or posture but rather a “both/and” agreement.

Some examples:

• Is the prayer/worship or evangelism/discipleship more important?

— It’s both/and! Prayer and worship sets the field or prepares the atmosphere so that hearts are softened and the air is clear for eyes to see and ears to hear.

• Are those who go or those who give more important?

— It’s both/and! How can people go without those who give? It’s a partnership in which we have opportunities to do both. The reward and credit is the same in God’s eyes!

• Should we battle darkness or gaze upon His beauty?

— It’s both/and! Intimacy is not left in the place of gazing when we enter the spiritual battles. It is an unbroken bond of intimacy that fights together and retreats to rest together. They are equally important.

• Should we take our homes/city or go to the other cities/nations?

—It’s both/and! As a mom I spend a lot of time with my natural family nurturing, loving and making a home where His presence abides; but I also go out to strengthen other’s children, marriages and homes. We must stay and we must go because what we build in our homes and cities become what we can bring to strengthen another’s home and city (or nation).

• Do we preach love or truth?

—Both love abs truth! The love described in 1 Corinthians 13 is the only love that is filled with truth! All other love is conditional but agape love does not demand something in return.

There are more examples then I’d ever be able to post but these are just a few. People often have a “for or against” posture or an “either/or” posture but that comes from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It creates separate camps and divisions over opinions, interpretations, human knowledge, limited understanding, different cultures, etc. The tree of life yields the sweet fruit of John 17:21. It is the unity/oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and enjoy that we have been invited into.

Though they are One in every way, we can enter into that oneness and nurture unity with our brothers and sisters by laying down our right to be right. I’m not talking about compromising convictions but acknowledging that we all see in part and carry different parts in different seasons. Every part of the five-fold is equally important and needed to see the fullness of the Kingdom established. Every part of the body is needed to perform the function that they were created for. Every expression is a revelation of a facet of His beauty. Not one of us is completely “right” in our understanding of scripture or application of scripture but God sees our hearts and the motivation of our hearts. We are clothed in His righteousness in the midst of our imperfections and even misrepresentations of His true nature. We ask for clean hands and pure hearts so that our greatest longing is to see Him receive what He died for…mankind!

Let’s move away from the either/or and for/against mindset and begin to eat of the tree of life until we see the longing of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 fulfilled.

He deserves His prayer to be answered by a people who will humble themselves before Him and one another in the only “camp” worth living in…the tent of Jesus!

“that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” John‬ ‭17:21‬ ‭

Testimony Time! “God Will Order Your Steps”

by Kathi Pelton

The other day I was walking around a “beauty/make-up” store with my daughter. As she shopped I wandered around separately. As I wandered, I spotted a lady standing at the counter of their hair salon and immediately had the thought, “Ask her about their pricing.”

Though I needed my hair done, that surely wasn’t in my current budget or in my plans to do. Plus, I was happy with the hair dresser that I currently have. But I was compelled to ask the prices and for reasons unbeknown to me, I found myself making an appointment to have my hair done by her. I walked away perplexed and wondering why in the world I did that! I didn’t even tell my daughter because I was sure that I’d cancel it.

The appointment was two days away and in those two days numerous unexpected things happened that cost hundreds of dollars (including my husband dropping his contact lens only to step on it…costing $300!). I concluded that I for sure would cancel the hair appointment because now it really wasn’t in the budget! But, every time I went to cancel it I would hesitate and felt to hold off a bit longer.

Finally, yesterday was the day for the appointment. I had about 101 reasons to cancel it! They were all legitimate and good reasons. But I felt a nudge to keep moving forward on it…so I went.

Ten minutes after sitting down in the chair for the appointment the Lord showed up. This hair dresser had been raised as a Jehovah Witness and raised her children in the same religion. But something deep within her was crying out for a relationship with God and not mere religion. After her marriage had fallen apart she began to ask questions about if Jesus was truly God or merely a “god” as taught in her religious organization. She went on a deep journey to seek out truth and the true God. She was longing to walk with someone who had the answers that she was seeking.

Then God had me sit down in her chair to get my hair done. For the next three hours what we shared went so deep. While she worked on my hair she kept a tissue box nearby as the tears poured down her face. It was a divine appointment…not because I had to have my hair done but because the God of mercy and grace heard the cry of this woman who was longing desperately for Him. She found who her heart was longing for! We will now begin meeting together regularly.

The reason that I’m sharing this testimony is to remind you to pay attention to those seemingly “random” thoughts that you have that go against your plans but order your steps into divine appointments. I hadn’t planned to go to that store with my daughter that day but at the last minute decided to go just to be with her. I hadn’t planned to make a hair appointment, especially from a stranger and at a place that I knew nothing about. I hadn’t planned to keep this “random” appointment because it made no sense financially (especially with two days of non-stop unexpected large expenses coming upon us)…but my feet were compelled to walk out steps that I had not planned.

If I had given into “reason” or my thoughts I would have missed this and though God would have found another way to reach her, I wouldn’t have had the honor of being the one to watch her encounter the love of God and hear His truth.

I am always so grateful for those who obeyed the Lord when they shared the love of God with me when I first came to know Him. I’m sure that “I” was not a part of their plans! But, as believers, we commit our plans to the Lord and ask Him to order our steps. And…He does! We must be willing to follow that nudge in directions we hadn’t planned and as we do we end up right where He needs us to be.

“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9

You may be the answer to someone else’s prayers. Your steps may not make practical sense of even financial sense but listen to that still small voice that judges you to “just keep walking” and watch what He will do.

Divine appointments await you so make your plans but yield the ordering of His steps!

God is Intermingling the Old and the New

by Kathi Pelton

The uncompromising message that I heard as a young believer that taught foundational truths, holiness, and freedom from sin and death has often been lost in the desire to let the world know that we walk in love. Yet, no one had to water down the truth that brought conviction of sin when I came to know the Lord. Sin was devastating my life, and the love found within the message of freedom from sin and a God who would die to redeem me from it was greater love than I had ever imagined possible!

Somehow many have concluded that any message that brings real conviction or exposes sin is not love. Yet, there is more love than we can imagine in the message of an invitation into freedom. The truth that the wages of sin are death and hell is now a politically incorrect message, yet it is the truth that Jesus died for; the one that saved my life and the lives of countless men and women.

The teaching of universalism is that there is ultimately no hell, no final judgement for any individual. There are those who tell us that it is unloving to proclaim the truth that rejecting Christ’s payment for sin will result in eternal separation from God. Such ideas have the appearance of kindness, but they are merely a recipe for watered-down Christianity.

Hell is real, but it was not designed for men; instead, it was meant for Satan and his demon army. Jesus made a way, through His death on the cross, for every man and woman to be redeemed, because He paid the price for our sin. We have the opportunity to receive the free gift of salvation and righteousness before our God. It is amazing that God has not forced His love upon us, but has given us free will to accept it or to reject it. Love offers a choice; not a compromised choice, but real freedom to chose.

When I was a new believer I understood these important truths, but unfortunately there were not a lot of true “fathers and mothers” who would come alongside us new sons and daughters in order to nurture us. Many of us who had chosen Christ and received the gift of eternal life still struggled with deeply wounded souls. I was one who carried scars from my childhood and from the many bad choices I had made that brought great harm to my young life.

Though I had experienced the amazing love of God during my salvation experience, rigid “Do no sin!” messages—apart from the healing of my soul to replace the orphan spirit I carried—merely reinforced an unhealthy demand to perform and set me up for failure.

We are seeing a wonderful shift in this season, and messages of love, healing, intimacy, our true identity in Christ, loving family, and generations walking together are now nurturing new converts and healing wounded souls. However, this does not negate the need for us to understand our hopelessness outside of Christ. We must understand the message of holiness and healing found in Jesus.

What I see happening in the Spirit is an intermingling of the message of uncompromising holiness, true conviction of sin, and Jesus redeeming men from the penalty of sin (which is death and hell) with the message of intimacy, family, sonship, identity, grace and His “reckless love.” It’s “not either/or” but “both/and.”

Either message without the other brings about unbalanced living. One demands holiness apart from healing, and the other creates compromise that makes people “feel good”; but they are being comforted within the constraints of their captivity. We need both! We need holiness and we need healing, we need uncompromising truth and unconditional love, we need to displace the enemy and then fill that place with the true identity that God created men to live in.

There is an intermingling of holiness and healing! There is an intermingling of conviction of sin and healing of hearts! There is an intermingling of uncompromising truth and intimacy! And there is an intermingling of foundational teachings and His reckless love that creates true disciples that know they are sons and daughters.

This will release light to those caught in darkness. It is the message the world longs to hear and the balm that souls need to receive. It is new wine poured into new wine skins. One without the other causes the wine skins to burst and the wine to be wasted.

Let us enter into a yielded life that allows the Spirit of the Lord to intermingle the fullness of all the aspects and characteristics of God within our lives. May a bride who is both holy and healed emerge in this hour!
