The Awakening

By Kathi Pelton

Do you feel the “awakening” that is beginning to take place? If you don’t, then get ready to! God is awakening His church and He’s waking up those who have not been awakened to the unconditional love of the Father.

I hear the Lord speaking the words from John 11:11,

“Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but now I will go and wake him up.”

I began hearing words like, “My friend __ (fill in the blank) has fallen asleep but now I will go and wake him up.”

I hear it over sons, daughters, cities and nations.

“My friend America has fallen asleep but now I will go and wake her up.”

It has been like an echo resounding in my spirit for many days now. Only, within the echo the name changes each time it goes forth.

There is a great awakening! In the places that a spirit of lethargy or even death has come to put even those in Christ to sleep (or in a grave); God is kissing His bride and awakening her to be His bride.

There are prodigals that are waking up and many sons and daughters will suddenly come to their senses; they will be overwhelmed with WHO HE IS! Deceptions will fall away, lies will be replaced by truth and true identity will be restored. They will suddenly understand and be awakened to the depth, height and lengths of the love of God for them.

There are people, churches, cities and even nations that have been like Lazarus; dead and stinking in a sealed grave but Jesus will arrive on the scene to “Awaken His friend.”

I believe that we are about to enter a time where we will even see the dead raised. Not merely the spiritually dead but the physically dead. He will be glorified through the raising of the dead and many will believe because of these miracles.

Unbelief is like the death of faith and God is about to display His unbelievable power that will break this death and unbelief off of many. They will believe and put their trust in God once more.

There is an old and very loved Christmas movie called “Miracle On 34th Street” where the young Natalie Woods is trying to have faith and belief for the first time. In one scene toward the end of the movie she is riding in a car on Christmas Day repeating the words, “I believe, I believe…” over and over. Her miracle not only comes but it far exceeds her wildest dreams. I keep seeing this scene in my mind and the great joy she experiences when her childlike faith “to believe in the impossible” is finally realized.

We may be in for a “Miracle On 34th Street” type of experience for many who have lost their childlike faith. The death of dreams and desires will be awakened and great joy will fill hearts once again. The Lord took me to Exodus 34 while I was pondering the title “34th Street” and this is what I read,

“Listen, I am making a covenant with you in the presence of all your people. I will perform miracles that have never been performed anywhere in all the earth or in any nation. And all the people around you will see the power of the Lord —the awesome power I will display for you.” Exodus 34:10

Miracles! Awakening! Resurrections! He is going to awaken His friends. Begin to declare, “I believe, I believe!!” Let it ring through the atmosphere and into the places where unbelief has brought death to your faith. Let it rise like the sound of a bell ringing or the sound of life coming back into a dead man. “I BELIEVE!” Shout it, sing it, declare it over every dead thing.

Miracles are coming and all the people around you will see the awesome power of your God!

When God Stops Establishing Your Steps He Begins Establishing Your Knees- Then Everything Changes!

By Kathi Pelton

This morning Lana Vawser posted a word about a vision where she saw God’s people “throwing their 2020 calendars into the fire.” As I read these words I began to ponder why, for the first time in thirty years, I did not buy a wall calendar or daily planner for 2020? Was it because we were moving in January and I was just too busy? But, no…I always pick it out in December and my sweet husband gets it for me for Christmas. But I just didn’t feel to as we entered 2020. I felt like there was no way to plan what the Lord would do.

Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his ways, but the Lord establishes his steps.”

This verse has always filled me with such confidence in going forward into the future. It has filled me with hope and joy to know that even if I get “my plans” wrong that He will order and establish my steps as I live in a posture of surrender and of yielding to His will.

But suddenly even our steps are stopped! Plans are cancelled and a divine “moment in time” has been established. I asked the Lord, “What are Your steps for me in this time.” I was answered by a vision of my shoes coming off and my feet leaving the ground as my “knees were being established.” With that vision my heart bowed down in worship, in silent meditation, in prayer and in knowing that HE IS GOD. My knees have become my established posture and single step for 2020.

So many prophesied that 2020 would be a year of divine focus and clear vision and there has never been a more accurate word! As the planners have been set aside, the events stopped and the calendars reveal only blank boxes, suddenly the Bride has gone in to the chambers with her Bridegroom to rediscover first love. And it is within these closed doors of intimacy that He is sharing His mysteries with her; even His strategies and His plans. But first, He is awakening love!

Yesterday morning I looked at my husband and said, “What is that fragrance that you are wearing?” He looked at me a bit baffled and replied, “Deodorant. The same one I wear everyday.” But I was all the way across the room and a fragrance that was so refreshing, clean and awakening filled my senses. I lingered in it and knew that I must be smelling the fragrance of “love awakening.” There is a fragrance of “oneness” that is awakening His bride.

The doorway into His chambers are often found in that place where our shoes are removed and our feet cease to move– it’s the place where we enter in upon our knees. I saw “knees established” so that future steps will be aligned. There is no going back and we do not want to; this is a time to move forward from a personal awakening and reformation that sparks a global awakening and reformation. For me, it’s a time to lay it all down and yield. Yield to “oneness with Christ” which only happens in His chambers. Oneness doesn’t happen in crowds or in events, it happens in the chambers of our hearts and behind closed doors.

A new wine skin is being established that will hold the new wine that will be poured out. If God had poured out the new wine into the old wine skin it surely would have burst and been wasted. Be ever so careful to not hold onto the old ways, the former plans and as Lana spoke, “…to want to get back to what we were doing before this Selah.” We must receive the invitation into His chambers where we yield to Him in a oneness that comes only through intimacy and communion together. Oneness will hold the new wine. It is the true answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21-23, “That they would be one even as we are one…”

Remove your shoes and allow your steps to cease and your knees to be established. There is a great awakening but it is happening first in the chambers of intimacy. It is there that He will establish oneness (He will set it as a seal upon your heart) and then He will share the mysteries and the secrets of His heart.

My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise my darling, my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:10

Let your steps take you to your knees where you will arise and go with Him to the place that love is awakened and oneness is sealed.

A Preemptive Strike of Prayer— A Shaking For Awakening!

By Kathi Pelton

For days now I have had a deep sense that the enemy is trying to change times and seasons. His plan is to prematurely initiate things that would “buy him more time” and stop the Church from occupying land that he has held.

God will use this “pandemic/epidemic” to usher the Church into a greater purity and into the governmental authority that we were intended to walk in. As many of God’s people have joined in the 40-day “Jesus Fast” and now (beginning March 18th) a three-day Esther fast— I believe that this fast is unto a greater purification and authority for the days to come.

The enemy’s plan is to take this global crisis into a global shift that would change times and seasons but as I was woken up at 3 a.m. to pray, I heard the words,

“I have enacted a preemptive strike of prayer that will cut this global demonic assignment short!”

Corporate prayer will stop this in its tracks! As prayer is partnered with the fasting that is happening on a global scale, we will see this come to a sudden and miraculous halt. In this hour we have all witnessed prayer meetings move from the boundaries of buildings to the seemingly limitless expanse of the internet. Nations are joining together as ONE FAMILY to pray, stand with one another and to be the corporate voice of the Bride. Theological differences (opinions) and cultural differences are being set aside to raise our voices as one voice.

In the midst of a global tragic pandemic a global incense of prayer is being released and it is beautiful! It is uniting His people in an offering of prayer and praise. It is John 17:21-23 coming upon the Church.

“I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” ‭

In the midst of what was sent to separate us and isolate us; God has raised up a way to come into times and places of corporate authority, unity and agreement in order to launch a preemptive strike of prayer. We may not be physically together but we are joined in our spirits and online as nations gather to humble themselves and pray as one!

We are praying with nations and names that we never have joined with before this crisis began. Our schedules and lives have been interrupted but God is using it to awaken us from a slumber that was allowing the enemy to dictate time and change seasons.

On Monday morning I was at a prayer meeting and while I was there I went into a vision. In the vision I was trying to wake up my oldest son, who is a very heavy sleeper (VERY heavy sleeper!). I heard his alarm go off but it did not wake him up so I went into his room and began to gently shake him; still he did not wake up. I then realized that the hour was late and began to shake him harder. Finally I shook him with a force that shook everything around him. With that he was awakened— just in time to not be late.

I immediately knew that it was a vision revealing that there are those who have been in a “hard sleep” that needed a forceful shaking to finally awaken. My oldest son is part of the millennial generation and I felt that is was also to further awaken those upcoming leaders who are now young adults. The enemy wanted to have these ones sleep through his attempt to change times and seasons until it was “too late.”

God is using this shaking to awaken many to keep and align with His times and seasons; with His heart and longings. As I went into intercession following the vision I found my mouth crying out the words, “Awaken us from this ‘hard sleep’ that has caused our hearts to slumber in the hour of need.”

A couple years ago I was given a very detailed dream of a younger millennial generation. In this dream they would not sleep as the disciples did while Jesus prayed in the garden on the night of his betrayal. They would remain awake and “give Him no restuntil the end…” (Isaiah 62:7). In this very detailed dream (which I’ll share at another time) God called this generation His “Third Watch Generation.”

The third watch of the night is the midnight to 3 a.m. hours. There are four watches of the night; the fourth being from 3 am to 6 am which finishes the night. Many believe that we are in the “fourth watch” of the ages but in this dream the Lord clearly spoke and called the young adults of this day “The Third Watch Generation.” They may be the trip wire for the third great awakening. But it may take a great shaking (as we are experiencing) to awaken many of them from a “hard sleep” so that they, “Give Him no rest!” They may be the ones to usher in the fourth and final watch?

Let this shaking awaken every place in each of us that has been in a “hard sleep.” Let’s awaken to first love and not turn him away when He comes to knock upon the door of our hearts.

Throughout this week the words from Songs of Solomon 3:1-4 have been going through my spirit,

“By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. “I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.” I sought him, but I did not find him. The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, “Have you seen the one I love?” Scarcely had I passed by them, When I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go, Until I had brought him to the house of my mother, And into the chamber of her who conceived me.”

In this time of shaking, prayer and fasting may we be like the bride running through the streets looking for the “one we love” and may we find Him, hold Him and not let Him go!

This shaking is causing a preemptive strike that stops the enemy from changing times and seasons but even greater— it is awakening first love!

Find Rest In The Awakening

By Kathi Pelton

I’m often up in the wee hours of the morning— or what most would consider the middle of the night. Tonight was no different as I rose about 2:30 am. As I sat in the silence– enjoying the quiet, when nothing is heart but the sound of our heater and the beat of my heart, I realized that these hours (when all are sleeping) are filled with so much peace. There is no pressure to be anywhere or do anything; just rest and “be.”

As I was breathing in the quiet and stillness, the Lord spoke so sweetly to my heart. He asked me, “Why is your soul not as at rest when all is awake?”

I hadn’t thought about it but knew immediately that during the day hours I tend to pressure myself to be productive, to be purposeful and to always be growing. Though these are not bad things I suddenly realized that I was trying to produce the “wind” that fueled these attributes. Then He spoke again saying, “You are to be productive, purposeful and growing; but by My Spirit. It is in My finished work that you will find rest for your soul while still bearing much fruit.”

I know this, I teach this, I write about this but I haven’t been living it like I should. There is a rest to be found in awakening. When the world is awake and busy we can remain in the rest of Christ. If we are truly living “by His Spirit” then the pressure is off and the rest of God is on (even if we are very active).

I believe there is another great awakening happening (though in we are in the very early hours). As this “awakening” crescendos it will be so important that we have learned to live in the “rest of God” and find rest for our souls. This is how we will stay in peace, health and joy— it is found in the flow of “not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit.”

When we come to know Christ as our Savior we enter into His Sabbath rest. Our souls enter into the seventh day rest; where the work of the finished cross is complete. In Genesis we read about God creating the heavens and the earth for six days and then resting on the seventh as it was completed or “the work finished.” When Jesus died on the cross and spoke the words, “It is finished.”, the veil was torn and we were invited into His finished work which provides a rest for our souls. We were given a seventh day that has no end.

There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:9-11‬ ‭NIV

Some versions of Hebrews 4:11 say, “strive to enter into that rest…” The real effort is in the surrender; the yielding to His Spirit and His finished work in a world striving to earn something, to work for something and to make themselves something (or someone of significance). To enter the finished work of the cross is to re-enter Eden. As His Church, we know this but rarely live it. There is still so much striving to make something happen that we’ve forgotten that it’s already been done!

I find myself striving to finish something for the sake of His Kingdom rather than striving to enter into what has already been finished that brings His Kingdom. His Kingdom comes as we enter into His rest; His finished work!

Yes, I love the silence and peace when all is asleep but will I love the time of awakening? Will I allow His rest to be imparted to me so that I will not be swallowed up in the noise, the activity and the busyness of a “Great Awakening?” Will I live in His Sabbath rest where my soul has yielded fully to His Spirit and I am able to ride the wave of revival in joy, peace and love. Will I allow His Sabbath rest to create an Eden within me where I “cease striving and know that He is God?”

It’s time to rediscover true rest. He’s inviting His sons and daughters into His finished work and Sabbath rest. Rest is not inactivity but rather it is the activity of victory, the peace that comes with the finished work and the joy that comes when desire is fulfilled.

We are in the wee hours of the day of another great awakening. Let us strive to enter into His rest so that we can be sustained in the hours when all the activity is happening. Today we strive to enter into His rest so that tomorrow we can cease striving and know that He alone is God— He has assured that He will be exalted among all the nations of the earth!

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Release the Sound That Awakens the Dawn of the New Day

by Kathi Pelton

For many months now the Lord has been highlighting roosters to me. Whenever something is highlighted continually before me I make sure to not assume why or what He is speaking to me regarding the object or thing highlighted. So…I’ve been waiting, listening and watching for the revelation that aligns with God’s times and seasons.

This morning as I woke up I saw what was nothing short of an powerful and yet absurd vision. I saw believers across the United States of America standing or perched on the top of roofs, like roosters, and they were crowing loudly and without ceasing for the awakening of the dawn of the new day. They were not announcing the dawn but rather their sound was causing the dawn to awaken!

I somehow understood that the light of the new day was being delayed by a dark force of opposition that kept our nation (and the nations of the world) in the darkest part of the night (it is darkest right before the dawn). The Lord is calling believers across the nation to get upon their “rooftops” and release the sound that will pull in the light of dawn! It is a partnership with Heaven’s armies and the sons and daughters of the Creator of Heaven and Earth. We are to crow, to roar, to sing, to shout and to declare the establishment of the new day.

The enemy is always trying to change God’s appointed times and seasons but we can triumph over his delays by obeying what the Lord is asking us to do. We cannot be found sleeping in the dark of early morning (before the light appears) but we must rouse ourselves awake so that we can “awaken the dawn!” We can break through the delay and darkness to release the sound that brings forth the new day.

There is great power and authority in this sound. Again, it is not merely the announcing of a new day; for that has already been done by the prophet’s voices! This is the sound of God’s people rising up in His authority to break through the delay and establish the light of the new day. It will open the door to the Promised Land by parting the darkness like the Jordan River was parted when the children of Israel passed from the wilderness into Canaan! It is clearing the threshold to be passed over and making a way where there has been no way.

What is the new day? It is another great awakening! Not only for our nation but for the nations of the world! I believe we’ve already passed into the early hours of the new day but the light and dawn has been delayed by the enemy. Many are still found sleeping and unaware that the awakening has begun. It is time for those who are awake to release their sound and command the light of this new day to appear for all to see. It is time to sound the alarm that awakens the sleepers…it’s time to shout it from the rooftops!

“What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!” Matthew‬ ‭10:27‬

Jesus has come to awaken the dead! This will be a great awakening that brings the dead to life, the sick to health, the lost into family and light into darkness. So go to your rooftops and let your voice be heard! Shout it out so all will hear and let your sound break through the delay. The great awakening HAS begun!

Awakening Sleeping Beauty

SleepingBeautyDisneykiss

Kathi Pelton

I sat down to wait on the Lord and saw that todays date is the first of June; when I saw the date I also saw a vision of a beautiful princess awakening after a long sleep.

I asked the Lord what this meant and I heard this,

“The King’s princesses are awakening now and will arise in their true identity, authority and beauty.”

The name June means “YOUNG”. I feel that many young women will arise this month and come onto the scene as young Esthers; who will approach the King with boldness and then go forth in authority to see many of the enemy’s plans thwarted.

Then I saw a vision of the older women arising as well. They arose in a renewed strength, beauty and authority. A queens crown was placed upon their heads and as they stood up there was a sense of awe in all who saw them. These queens stood with great authority that demanded attention. It was like everything around them stood still in awe and waited with baited breath for what she would say.

I believe that this vision of the princesses speaks of the emerging of young women in ministry that will capture the attention of many, due to the way they represent the King; in a humble authority that reveals His beauty.

I also believe that the vision of the queens arising speaks of many of the older women coming into a greater authority and promotion in the Kingdom. They will carry an authority that demands a response. They will also be in great demand because of this mantel of authority that they are carrying.

The enemy has tried to keep these women down (like in the story of Sleeping Beauty where the jealous witch caused her to be in a death-like sleep) but the King has kissed them and awakened them.

June has always been the “month of brides” and this June is no different. The bride has been prepared and now is awakening on this first day of June, having been made ready to rule and reign in her royal authority.

I understand that the “Bride” Biblically is both male and female but this word is specifically for the daughters (women).

Get ready because Sleeping Beauty is about to awaken!

 

Personal Note: 

Dear Ocean in the Desert Readers,

In the past six months our family has faces many trials due to the car accident on January 3rd. Due to Kathi’s injuries we have had to cancel all international travel and limit our domestic travels. Kathi meets with a surgeon this month to deal with two of her injuries. We are asking for prayer from our friends and ministry partners; for wisdom, favor and healing. Our livelihood comes from full time itinerant ministry therefore this car accident not only brought physical challenges but also financial challenges. 

If you can pray for us at this time we would be so very grateful. We are believing for healing, more ministry partners who will come along in this season to support what God has us doing financially and more prayer partners. If you desire to partner with us please fill out the form below.

Thank You,

Jeffrey and Kathi Pelton
