A Crisis of Faith

By Kathi Pelton

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:11

Now more than ever are we seeing so many believers in Yeshua experiencing what I would call a “crisis of faith.” This current crisis will do one of two thing; it will either usher those who wrestle to the point of surrender into a unshakable faith or some will abandon the faith by which they were saved. My constant prayer is that not one person would abandon their faith.

I believe God has allowed this crisis, not to hurt his people but to shake the shakable areas so that we can recognize them and yield them to the firm foundation of our God.

Most of the Christian church in America has had at least a moment of disillusionment, disbelief and even a spiritual crisis as 2021 has begun. Of course we do not know what tomorrow will hold but we do know who holds tomorrow. If these days of shaking or crisis have done anything for me (personally), it is to bring me into a greater surrender and dependency on who HE is rather then on how he does things.

Even the current “prophetic crisis” can turn eyes from the man (or woman) who has become known as a prophet to the One who created him. I sense a holy jealousy in the heart of God for a bride whose eyes are fully fixed on his. A bride who will put her faith and assurance in who he is more than what he does. A bride who doesn’t turn her face away when life doesn’t look like what she thought it would. A bride who has no other “lovers” but her beloved Jesus. This does not mean that we do not have prophets but that we do not elevate them to the point that they are exalted in any way.

So, maybe the question isn’t so much to be focused on if the prophets were right or wrong but rather it should be, “Who is the bride’s faith, loyalty and focus upon?” I am not saying that there is not to be accountability in the prophetic but there also needs to be a personal searching of individual’s hearts if their faith was more in a prophetic voice or a desired outcome than in Christ alone.

We have not seen tomorrow, therefore we do not know what is ahead or what only God can do. We know that, without a doubt, some details and timings were wrong but we do not need to loose faith in God or despair because those who see in part got parts wrong. As most of my readers know, I truly believed that the president would be re-elected and although I never prophesied a second term or a re-election by January 20th- I surely thought that it would happen and was not secretive about that. Does that cause me to loose faith? No, because my hope, assurance and faith is not in my thoughts or the way I believe something will play out, but my faith is in Christ alone.

During my brother’s illness with Covid during the month of January. Many people wrote to me and encouraged me with notes, prayers and even declarations that he would “live and not die.” Some even saw visions of his healing. Yet, on January 21st he died in the arms of his wife. Should I lose hope or judge those who sent me notes saying that they saw God healing him? Never!! God fully healed him and he entered into the fullness of joy that day. Their words were not wasted because they strengthened my soul through the day and night battle that we were in. In Christ, death has lost its sting and there is only victory.

I cannot tell you what is ahead for our nation, our world or even my life. I don’t know for sure if even greater crisis will come in 2021 or if a miraculous turnaround will suddenly appear. I tend to lean toward both being present simultaneously but both not looking anything like we’d expect. So what do we do? We put our faith in the absolute, unfailing love of our God! We surrender (let go of and repent for) every place of resistance, rebellion, idolatry, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness, unholy justice, wrath and hatred. We stop pointing fingers at others for what we chose to believed and we fix our eyes on the One who is faithful and true. We humble ourselves before the Holy One and we join with heaven in declaring, “Worthy is the Lord!” He is sovereign and his dominion has no end. God has not been shaken— we have! Now we must put every shaken area upon the unshakable foundation of the Rock of Ages.

If you are in a crisis of faith then this is a gift to you so that you can cooperate with the Holy Spirit to shore up those areas of crisis and replace them with Christ. In the midst of my grief about our nation, the place that we live (in the Washington DC region), my brother’s death and so many more things— I have found that the one sure thing is JESUS! He is more than enough to believe in, hope in and put my full assurance in. He holds every answer in his hand and has not turned aside from any prayer of faith that was prayed or that will be prayed. His ways are higher and he is calling us to a higher place. A higher and purer faith. An unshakable faith.

Crisis can take you to the place of “Christ is…” Christ is absolutely faithful, absolutely holy, absolutely sovereign, absolutely beautiful, absolutely worthy, absolutely pure, absolutely powerful and absolute LOVE.

Let your crisis take you to this revelation,

“Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God.” Revelation 19:11-13

THIS IS WHO HE IS! Crisis averted!

The Rebirth of America

By Kathi Pelton

December 1st was such a significant day in prayer for America. The dawn of this new month, the 12th and final month of 2020, was ushered in by the nations gathering in prayer to stand with us, decree with us and see the will of the Lord established in our nation. I had the honor of being a part of the panel on this online global prayer gathering.

During our time of worship I kept seeing our nation going through a rebirth. As I was seeing this, one of the prayer leaders from the UK sent a text saying that she was seeing the final stages of a birthing (after a hard labor) and that the nations were the midwives for this birthing of America. This was confirmation of what I had been seeing but I knew that there was still something more.

As we continued in worship I received another message from a brother in Canada. It was a long message that I wasn’t able to read but within it’s context I saw the words, “…the US is a Joseph nation…” The moment my eyes saw those words I went into a vision regarding our nation. In this vision i saw America like young Joseph, who had been given the coat of many colors. His joy and even his confidence was in the coat or “this mantel given” to him (the call). Then I saw Joseph (who represented America in this vision) lay the coat of many colors down at the feet of Jesus. He bowed before him in humility and repented for putting his confidence in the gift rather than in the Lord alone. In this vision, as soon as he laid down the gift that the Father had given him at the feet of Jesus, the rebirth took place. This time I saw it resembled the birth of our Savior, born in humility; a humble King. The authority was never to come from the gift or the call but from humbling ourselves before our true King. The Father had given America a gift that was to be laid at the feet of His dear Son.

Together, during the global gathering (on the morning of December 1st), together, this Joseph nation called America, laid down the coat of many colors at the feet of our King, and we were rebirthed into the posture of humility that Jesus carried when he came to earth. We presented our gift to the true King.

If this bears witness with you, take a moment to join in the prayer that declares, “Today we lay down every source of strength, authority and confidence in anything other than full submission to King Jesus. We receive this rebirth into humble authority that serves rather than controls. We lay the coat of many colors at the feet of Jesus.”

This greatly pleases the heart of the Father, who gave America this coat. Now, like Joseph, we can govern with humble authority and wisdom that restores our fathers, our brothers and the nations of the world.

December is a month to bring gifts to the King! Jesus is the One who hung upon a tree to fulfill why He came to earth. In this month where we hang ornaments upon a tree and place gifts under it; let us bring our greatest gifts and put them at the feet of the One who gave his all. As a nation (and the nations of the world), may we bring all that has been given to us and offer it as a gift of full surrender and submission to our Savior and King, Jesus.

They sang, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” Revelation 7:12

We begin this 12th month by declaring together that all blessing, glory, wisdom, thanksgiving, honor, power and strength belong to our God forever and ever!! AMEN!

———————————

In this month of giving I believe that the Lord wants to release his promise that comes with giving out of Luke 6:38 upon his people. It is the overflowing and poured out blessing upon those who give. If you desire to give a financial gift to our ministry, go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

Time To Rule and Time To Occupy!

By Kathi Pelton

“There are times for the work of warfare and times for the work of ruling— now is the time for ruling.” –Larry Sparks

America— we prayed, we struck the ground, we gained the spiritual victory and now we must occupy that ground.

The government of God must now sit in the seats of authority given to us in Christ Jesus. When He ascended to His throne— we ascended into a place of authority with Him. Now we must occupy those seats and exercise our spiritual authority on earth as it is in Heaven!

This is not a time to forfeit the ground gained through assignments of “emotional defeat” (which leads to a deep physical weariness) but rather it is time to sit in the seats of victory that were gained prior to the U.S. election. God’s government has been called into session for such a time as this. The scepter has been extended— it is time to decree, time to exercise authority and time to rule from the seat of spiritual authority.

There is a spiritual “United Nations” that has gathered together to rule and reign with Christ Jesus. America is no longer standing alone but rather we stand as one with the Ecclesia of the nations of the world to decree righteousness, justice and liberty in Jesus. Together we will raise the standard of the Lord over America and over the nations. We will occupy the land that we have warred for!

Take your seats, sons of God! Touch the scepter and release the decree that delivers our nation and the nations of the world.

Esther said, “If it please the king, and if I have found favor with him, and if he thinks it is right, and if I am pleasing to him, let there be a decree that reverses the orders of Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite, who ordered that Jews throughout all the king’s provinces should be destroyed. For how can I endure to see my people and my family slaughtered and destroyed?” Esther 8:5-6

We decree:

If it pleases our King, and we have found favor in your sight, if you find it right and we are pleasing to you— let there be a decree that reverses the orders of the evil one— the Haman spirit— that has ordered the destruction of our people and of Zion. He has ordered the destruction of righteous laws and leadership in our nation. How can we endure to see our people and families slaughtered and destroyed? Decree our deliverance, King Jesus!

Just as King Xerxes responded favorably to Esther, so will our God respond to us— His bride. Esther risked everything to approach the king (without an invitation) but we have not only been invited to approach Him but invited to sit with Him and reign with Him.

We are in a “for such a time as this” point in history. It is time to occupy and decree!

A Vision of “The Lost Boys” (America)

A Vision of “The Lost Boys” (America)
Kathi Pelton

As I was waiting upon the Lord this morning, I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak to me saying, “The lost boys of America have finally found their family.” After hearing those words, I went into a vision of the colonists coming upon the shores of America, but they looked like the “lost boys” from the story of Peter Pan. In this vision they learned how to thrive on their own, to survive on their own and how to lead on their own but never were nurtured or strengthened by the beautiful design God gives of having a father and a mother. This vision went from four hundred years of “independence” to today (2020). Suddenly I saw the nations being reunited with these “lost boys” (America) and they embraced them as a father and mother would if they had been separated from their child. They wept over them, surrounded them, blessed them and committed to never let them be alone again. As this happened the lost boys shed their garments of “being lost” and they were clothed with the garments of a prince. Strength, wisdom, interdependence and sonship came upon them. The spirit of adoption also came upon them and they could move and live from a place of blessing, acceptance and love.

As a nation we are in some of the most turbulent times that we have ever experienced, I have been so honored to watch nation after nation come and weep with us, weep for us and pour out both repentance and blessings upon us. They have become one with us and us with them. It has been overwhelming to see the beauty of the body of Christ throughout the nations embrace us and commit to never let us walk alone again. From England, to Canada, to China, to Indonesia, to Russia…and so many more. They are declaring over us, “You are not alone!” I have wept more in the past few month then I have in years- not because of the chaos in our nation but because of the beauty of the nations coming to comfort us and move from cursing to blessing. The global ecclesia has become like a father and mother to us- they have surrounded us and are providing the love and nurture that we need to become all that God intended America to be.

In the midst of acts of betrayal, fraud, accusations and hatred in our streets and in those who are known as leaders in our nation, there is a higher truth and reality that is happening above it all and it is in complete contrast to the chaos. That truth is that the body of Christ throughout the nations is embracing us for the first time. As we approach the 400-year anniversary of when the Mayflower came upon our shores, I believe that we have been prepared “for such a time as this!” Throughout the Bible we see that God considers 400 years a spiritually significant time period- especially regarding the preparation of a nation. God has a plan for our nation that will bless the nations of the world. It has taken us 400 years to be spiritually prepared to walk in the fullness of His plan and it has also taken the blessing of the nations to strengthen us and become “one with us” so that we can stand up and walk in His purposes.

2020 has been our year of maturing. It has opened our eyes to see our lack, our need and to yield to our God in humility and clarity. I believe that a “spirit of adoption” has come upon us and a oneness with Christ and with His ecclesia throughout the nations. It is the birthing of the answer to the prayer Jesus prayed in John 17:20-23,

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

There could not be oneness or unity if one nation were divided from all the others- not only divided but cursed. God in His sovereignty has used this year to turn that around. What we are seeing in not mere “acts of kindness” but a sincere and deeply felt heart response to a revelation from the Lord. We were made ready and they were made ready.

“You turned my mourning into dancing; You peeled off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing Your praises and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks forever.” Psalm 30:11-12

An American Apology To The Great I Am

By Kathi Pelton

We live in a glorious land filled with rocky mountains,
green valleys,
rolling hills and
blooming deserts.

We have beautiful diversity in our people, places and languages.

We have known the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship and freedom to make personal choices. How blessed we have been.

Our pledge of allegiance declares that we are “One Nation Under God” and our currency reads “In God We Trust”…but America— we have divided our nation from the One we claimed to love.

God has looked for those who will stand in the gap of this great divide to pray– to repent– to turn back and to bow low.

Here we are!

Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for trading—
Mercy for mammon
Grace for greed
Freedom for captivity
Trust for tyranny
Unity for division
And- love for hate.

It is said that “United we stand, divided we fall” We are falling, oh God! We have divided from you and now freedom is falling, liberty is lacking and unity is unseen.

Our divided history has resurfaced, the secret societies have been revealed and the hidden agendas are now exposed for all to see. We are naked, we are cold and we need you!

God have mercy!

Those who still call upon your name, who put their trust in you and who know that you are our only hope now bow down.

We bow down in sorrow, we bow down in worship, we bow down in repentance and we bow down in prayer. We humble ourselves before the you— the great I Am.

Unless the Lord builds a house then all is vanity— forgive us for the vain and the profane. You are the only foundation that stands— therefore, we bow down and declare to the foundations of America, “Come back to the Rock that is higher than you! Return to the One who died for you!”

We bow low that you may be lifted high. Higher than our mountains, higher than our might, higher than our lofty thoughts. We declare, “Not by our might, not by our power but only by your Spirit shall we be saved!”

Forgive us for turning away from truth, turning from the one true way, turning from peace, turning from blessing, turning away from covenant and turning away from you.

We stand in the gap as representatives of this nation called the United States of America and we turn back to you! We declare that we are one nation under God and that our trust is in you alone. We declare true liberty from the captivity of sin for all. We declare your justice for every person of every color. We bridge the great divide with our repentance and our declaration of allegiance to you!

We love your Word, we love your ways and we surrender all to you today. Jesus, you are our King, our Lord, our Savior and our God. In you we trust and in you we put our confident hope. We run to you.

Forgive us, heal us and unite us in the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and have given to us. The blood of Jesus speaks a better word!

God Bless America— the land that we love. Stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above.

Amen!

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!
