The Power of Stillness

by Kathi Pelton

Many of you have been in a time of great spiritual momentum and it’s been a source of accelerating you forward. But, do not become discouraged or dismayed if a sudden and unexpected stillness, pause or what may even feel like “delay” comes upon your time of acceleration. Remember this; God moves mightily when we get still.

There is a familiar verse in the Bible that talks about this,

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10

There is an amazing spiritual thing that happens when God calls His bride to be still. Suddenly, we make room for Him to move. At times our activity can begin to take the lead but as we hear His invitation to “be still” we will enter into a deeper trust and abiding rest that gives Him room to take the lead and make clear the way ahead.

Many years ago our family was in one of the most significant transitions of our lives and the warfare against this transition began to hit on every front. I felt like I’d been put on the defense rather than the offense where I had been positioned prior to the resistance. One day, during this time, I was seeking the Lord and He took me into a vision that gave me deeper understanding of how to walk through my transition or this “threshold” of life that I was in.

In the vision I was dressed as a bride and was standing next to my Bridegroom, Jesus. We were at the threshold of crossing into our honeymoon suite. I was so excited for this new beginning that I was about to rush over the threshold ahead of Him. Just then Jesus stopped me and said,

“My bride, allow Me to carry you over the thresholds of life because it is in stillness and the posture of being fully yielding to my strength and arms that you will cross over without being disturbed. You will be carried in intimacy.”

At that point (in the vision) I ceased my “running ahead” and paused (got still) so that He could pick me up and carry me over the threshold. As He carried me over the threshold I looked down and below me I saw a great battle that I was being carried above in the arms of My Savior. Had I rushed ahead, I would have entered a huge battleground (or army of resistance) that the enemy had set for me but, because I got still, I was carried over it and the enemy was put under the feet of Jesus.

After that vision I got very still and invited the Lord to carry me and the incredible warfare I had been experiencing suddenly ceased. There was such protection and peace in my pause and my stillness.

If you are in a time of transition and you suddenly feel or hear the “pause…be still” then know that you may actually be at the point of crossing over and your obedience to pause and be carried will create a smooth and seamless transition over the threshold of your new beginning.

Here are a few encouraging verses to help you in your pause, rest and stillness:

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14

• My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Psalm 131:1-2

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15

There are many more like these…may you let His strength become your strength as you enter into quietness and trust. Let LOVE carry you.

The YES Explosion! A Divine Encounter

by Kathi Pelton

As I have been traveling the past number of months I noticed that almost everywhere I’ve gone something particular would happen during worship. In each place the song of the Lord would come upon the worship team and an amazingly pure sound would be released that always had the words, “We say yes!” within it.

During one of these times of worship in Bend, Oregon this past June, the song of the Lord with the words “We say yes” once again began to pour out. It was such a pure and deep sound from the Bride to her Bridegroom.

Yet, this time as the words were being sung I was suddenly taken into an spiritual encounter. I found myself looking upon the scene at Calvary as Jesus was being laid upon the cross.

The soldiers took the nails and as they hammered each nail through our Lord’s hands and feet, He would let out a deep and loud cry but what I heard in the cry was the word, “YES!” It was Jesus’ “yes” to His Father and to His bride as He yielded to giving His life for the ones that He so greatly loved. With each pound the hammer upon the nails that pierced through Him, another shout and cry of “YES” would be released. It was the sound of agape love that gives up all for the ones who are loved. “Yes, My Bride, I give My all for you.” It was the most agonizing and yet beautiful sound I have ever heard.

Then I saw the “Yes” of our Savior and Bridegroom go forth through time and it intercepted with the “Yes” of the bride that was pouring out in this hour from His bride. As the “Yes” of the Bride and the “Yes” of the Bridegroom intersected (like the past and present coming together in a divine collision) they released what looked like a sonic boom that went out across the world.

Suddenly I saw what appeared to be millions of men, women and children across the world drop to their knees and surrender their lives to Jesus. They all began to cry out, “Yes” in surrender to our Savior. No one said a word to them but the “combustion” of the “Yes” of the bride and her Bridegroom had released a spirit of revelation over the earth.

I found myself saying, “Lord, did millions of people just come to know you by a sovereign revelation that this was released?”

His response was,

“No, Kathi. It was billions!”

There is a deep, pure and fully surrendered yielding that is building within the hearts of His bride at this time that cries out, “Yes! Take all of me. I give my all for the One my heart loves.” This sound of surrender will collide with the sound of surrender that our Savior cried out when He gave His all for His bride.

It two sounds of surrender release the invitation and words found in Revelation 22:17,

The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.

We cry out “Yes!” Worthy is the Lamb to receive all honor, glory and dominion! Hold nothing back. Billions around the world are waiting for the revelation of what they long and are thirsting for. Do not hold anything back, for His “Yes” and our “Yes” are about to send forth a sonic boom that carries the revelation of Jesus throughout the earth.

East Coast to West Coast Ministry Update

Ministry Tour Update

After a month on the East Coast (Boston, Vermont, Ottawa, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington DC) we have now landed on the West Coast.

There is too much to write out concerning the places that we prayed, the people that we met and the National gatherings we were a part of. Some of the highlights were praying on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and then on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., praying at Gettysburg, David’s Tent (DC), doing a “Silent Siege” with Bound for Life on the steps of the Supreme Court, being a part of the team (family) in Canada that gathered in Ottawa for the “As One” National Gathering, being a part of the team that gathered in Fredericksburg, Virginia for the Awaken the Dawn Prayer Gathering and of course spending time with old friends, new friends and family that joined us along the way.

We loved getting to minister to those who served us along the way in restaurants or as Lyft drivers. Giving them words of life and watching them encounter Jesus was so beautiful. It’s amazing how you minister to nations as you travel through Canada and the United States.

We are currently spending two days at home (Portland, Oregon) before heading to California. We will be there for a week to connect with both family (performing a family wedding) and then ministry friends in the San Francisco Bay Area that we will be partnering in the days to come. Then we will head to British Columbia, Canada to teach at Accelerate Prophetic School.

We are also gearing up for a pre-gathering rally (9/21) in Portland, Oregon for the Awaken the Dawn/Tent America 2019 event on October 17-19 where the nation will host tents across America that will release a love song to Jesus for 50-hours. If you want to host a tent in your region go to: http://www.awakenthedawn.org/tent-america/

There is a “go” invitation that is being met with a “Yes, here I am, send me.” response. It is sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers…all going to see the lost saved, the sick healed and the worth of Jesus made known in a world that needs a Savior. There is also an invitation to go into your neighborhood, your city, your workplace or your school that is being heard and responded to. Many of those “going to their own cities” are rising up to support those who are going to the nations. It is one family making sure that every part and every function is healthy and whole.

We invite you to join our part as we “go forth” by praying for us and supporting us financially as we travel; following His steps and instructions.

Habitation or Visitation?

by Kathi Pelton

Each day that I live I become more aware of the “place of habitation” that we must dwell in. The presence and person of Jesus isn’t a place that we visit during a worship service or a prayer time; it is and HE IS to be our continual dwelling place and habitation day and night.

“Those who live (dwell) in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.” Psalms‬ ‭91:1-2‬ ‭

The dwelling place of the Most High is not a swinging door that we are to go into and then out of; it is to be our “constant.” Whether we are resting on our beds or traveling the nations we are to dwell in His shelter and become a place of habitation for His presence. The oneness and unity that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share is a constant and unbroken flow of communion and connection. This is what we have been invited into…the “constant indwelling of God.”

I recently heard someone say, “The Lord will visit and bless many things that He does not inhabit.”

Yet He longs for a habitation!

I love David’s heart and desire that he expresses in Psalm 132:4-5,

“I will not let my eyes sleep nor close my eyelids in slumber until I find a place to build a house for the Lord, a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.””

It is the response to God’s longing in Psalm 66:1

“This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place?””

The amazing reality is that He is our resting place and we are to be His resting place. He who dwells (inhabits) us is to be our habitation and dwelling place. He is not to merely be a visiting place but a constant and permanent place that we live in and carry; no matter where we are or what we are doing. It is then that His glory (His manifest presence) will bring heaven to earth wherever we go.

This is one of the greatest mysteries that any person can spend a lifetime discovering…God with us! He is the God who says, “Come up here…” (Revelation 4:1) and the God who “bends low to hear our prayers” (Psalm 116:2). There is a constant and continual (unbroken) communion that we have been invited into. There is ascending and descending always happening as we dwell with Him and allow a habitation of His Holy Spirit to be a river of life that flows to us and through us.

The indwelling of God with us is our unspeakable joy! One moment we find ourselves at His feet in humble adoration and the next we are gazing into His eyes with an awe that causes everything to stand still. He is the One who picks us up to dance with us and who leaves us terrified at His power and might. The place of habitation with God is never boring but rather always amazing. It is a holy place of great power and authority and a humble place of comfort and rest. All are welcome and all receive what they truly need.

Let us pursue habitation rather than visitation. May we see a generation of “inhabitants” arise instead of “visitors” who are always “up and down.” Let us see a generation come forth who will be a resting place for the glory of the Lord. Then His manifest presence will come and transform orphans into sons and daughters.

There is no lack in His presence…no want…no depression. There is fullness of joy that ushers in a yielding to absolute trust. This yielding brings the peace that surpasses understanding. This is the beauty found in habitation, dwelling and abiding in His presence. Let’s not settle for anything less!

Utah and Salt Lake City Region…You Are Called To Be An Epicenter of His Glory!

by Kathi Pelton

What an honor it has been to be in the Salt Lake City region to release love, worship, intercession and His name over this region. I have fallen in love with the people here and with God’s heart for this state and region. This is a key place in our nation for resurrection life, the glory of the Lord to fill HIS temple (and bring down false temples) and to see a national shift take place. You are a miracle waiting to happen!

I have heard such promising words from the Spirit of God while here. One was, “Those who seek will find Me.” Wow, there are so many caught in the LDS religion that truly are “seeking to know God”…they are longing for His agape love to transcend works that never measure up. I prophesy along with Jesus, “They will find Him!”

I also heard the words, “Prophecy, ‘It is done’” I prophesy the victory that Jesus has established! Life, glory, unity, reformation, salvation, freedom and strongholds coming down that set the captives free! This region is called to bring forth family, unity, glory and to disciple those who will then disciple others.

A pastor shared with us how the Christian churches in this region are like a twelve string guitar with each string playing a different sound. The enemy has tried to keep the body of Christ separated, due to the low percentage of Christians in the region (which creates a sense of “hold tight into what you have and let no one steal your crown” mentality). This has created a dulled sound but when every string is played together it releases the sound of unity and harmony. All twelve strings are needed to release the unified sound that sets the people free and brings forth true family. Family is key here, so unity among the Christians is greatly resisted by the enemy. The pastors and churches are working hard to “play together.”

Let’s agree and decree over this state and region that unity will be established among His people first and then true family will come forth. John 17:21-23 is Jesus’ prayer for unity and oneness…it is the divine preference, the agape love, the unbroken intimacy of the Father, Son and Spirit that we are invited into. John 17 also talks about the “glory that was before the beginning of the world”; this glory is that unbroken circle of love that has a sound, a movement, a fragrance and a power to bring divine order. When we talk about carrying the glory or the glory coming then we need to know that it takes a “surrender to the glory that was before the world began…the unity and oneness shared by our God!” True glory is found in what the Father, Son and Spirit have in the complete and perfect oneness they share.

Utah and the Salt Lake City region…there is deep revelation about the glory that He longs to share with you; it is found in the mystery of unity, oneness and family. Seek it out like the greatest treasure known to mankind! The resistance and strongholds over the people and the land exists because you have a buried treasure for the nation and the nations hidden here. The enemy knows that it is the greatest weapon for all mankind. He knows that if the church is one as God is one that it is “game over!” This is an epicenter for the glory that comes from oneness!

Let’s stand with them and cry out, prophesy, decree and hold up their arms to see the glory and freedom come. What is birthed here and broken through here will effect the whole nation!

I love you UTAH and the Father greatly desires your beauty!!

The Immersion: A Dream

by Kathi Pelton

I had a dream last night where I was offered either a “body spray” of the Lord or a “perfume” of Him. I didn’t fully understand the terminology because it didn’t seem to fit with spiritual language; although perfume surely seemed like the logical choice. Then I watched as people came near to Him to receive an encounter, or “mist,” of His presence and power. They came near Him and enjoyed these encounters, but they didn’t seem to be lasting or transformational. I told the Lord I wanted more than a mist or spray of Him and instead chose the “perfume.”

At that point I was taken to what appeared to be a baptismal pool. I was placed in this pool, immersed in Him— in His full, undiluted presence. As I was immersed in His pure perfume, I lost myself and became one with Him. I realized that this pool was within His eye and I was the “apple of His eye”; His pupil, His focus.

This immersion was completely transformative as it took me from mere encounter to a consummation of oneness with Him. This perfume made me think of the preparation of Esther or the perfume that was poured over the feet of Jesus. The fragrance that permeated the room continued to flow from Him and now also came from me.

There is a choice; encounter or immersion; a mist or a baptism into oneness. The choice is an invitation, but the price for immersion is greater, as you must lose yourself. The gain is greater as well because you will be transformed into the fullness of Him.

Fix Your Gaze and Step Into Freedom

by Kathi Pelton

Last night a group of seven of us went to a very oppressed area of downtown Portland to do a prayer-walk (we’ve been prayer walking this area for the past six months). Though we had a very effectual night with amazing breakthrough, what our eyes had to look upon could grieve even the hardest heart. There were so many lives snared in the net of demonic oppression and addiction. Yet, as we stood on a particularly dark corner one of our team members said that the song, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, was running through his mind the whole night but the word “turn” was changed to “fix.” We all stood in the midst of the darkness (even people screaming at us) and began to sing,

Fix your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace…

As we sang, prayed and declared we watched as the things of earth grew dim. We fixed our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and the darkness was dispelled in the midst of His light. From that point on we had miraculous breakthroughs that we had been praying for over many months.

I share this testimony with you because the change and freedom came when we “fixed our gaze upon Jesus” in the midst of darkness.

“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking [Him] in His temple.” Psalm 27:4

As we fixed our gaze upon His beauty the darkness around us began to tremble. There were physical and natural happenings that we witnessed in response to the light and beauty being brought into the midst of darkness and depravity. We honestly stood in awe at what we witnessed last night because it was supernatural.

Though we shouldn’t have been surprised, honestly we were greatly shocked and surprised at the turn of events. I should know this truth well because in my personal life I strive to continually “fix my gaze” on Jesus and His beauty day and night. The sight of Him and “dwelling in His temple” has become my refuge and my fortress.

When trials or storms come, fixing my gaze upon Him becomes the place where my perspective is aligned with truth and victory. Fixing my eyes upon His beauty lifts me out of the circumstance that seek to “steal my gaze.” It lifts me from the captivity of fear into the freedom of the finished work of Christ.

If you are going through a storm and all you can see is the wind and waves, then now is the time to turn your eyes upon Jesus and fix your gaze upon His beauty. It will not only lift you above the storm but it will also calm the storm.

Often we empower storms or assignments sent against us when we fix our focus on them. The enemy seeks to steal our gaze and our light through darkness and fear. When this happens, we actually become a force that strengthens the storm rather than calms the storm. As you refocus your gaze upon Jesus it releases His power to calm the storm and moves you into freedom.

“For all creation, gazing eagerly as if with outstretched neck, is waiting and longing to see the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19

As we fixed our gaze on Jesus last night we saw creation respond. Creation was waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arrive on the scene in a place where darkness was given dominion. Though there is still much work to do, we found that as we fixed our gaze upon His beauty and released what we saw, the mountains trembled and demons began to flee. Light dispels darkness, beauty transforms depravity, love overcomes hate! This works in our personal lives as well as in our cities and nations.

If you need freedom from oppression and circumstances that have left you captive; turn your gaze! Refocus your attention and your eyes upon His beauty and watch as peace comes upon you and the storm is stilled. Your perspective will change but circumstances will shift as well.

Fix your gaze and watch freedom come!

The Wilderness You’ve Been Going Through Is Your Door of Hope

by Kathi Pelton

Some of you have been going through a time of deep pain, deep longing and what you’d describe as a wilderness time. Many years ago I went through such a time and during those few years I honestly wondered if I’d survive the pain and darkness that surrounded my soul.

During that time I was often awake in the middle of the night trying to find my way through the unrelenting pain. One night, in the midst of the thick wilderness, I began to hear the words from the Book of Hosea flowing through my heart like a stream of hope upon my dry and thirsty soul. The words are from Hosea 2:14-23,

““Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master. ’ I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked. In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord. “In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord — “I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one. ’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people, ’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’ ””

These verses became my lifeline! They gave me purpose in the pain and points for prayer. God hadn’t taken me into the wilderness to ruin me but rather to restore me! In His incredible mercy, He drew me into a place that was set apart because He loved me too much to leave me content with less than the fullness of what He intended for my life.

There, in the wilderness, I became aware of all the “masters of my soul” and I became keenly aware of the captivity that the busyness of my life had hidden in the locked closets of my soul. I was laid bare and in the midst of naked vulnerability He covered me with His love, He healed my wounds, dressed me in His righteousness and He betrothed me to Him; changing my identity to, “I am my Beloved’s and He is mine.” (Songs of Solomon 6:3)

‭Though it was the most painful time of my life; it was the most important time in my life. I am forever grateful that He “allured me into the wilderness to speak tenderly to me and to restore me.” During that three year wilderness my life was saved and everything changed. I was set free to truly live, truly be loved and truly breathe in the beauty of salvation.

The wilderness is not without purpose! Rarely is it only a moment but rather a journey. My wilderness changed when I began to understand that there was a divine purpose in it. Prior to that it was merely agonizing pain that was leaving me stuck. As soon as I found the purpose through the verses in Hosea, I began to partner with God to walk into freedom upon the path He had forged for me.

Your wilderness is not without purpose. Winter is for only for a season but you must go through that season to get to the springtime. If you are in a wilderness season; you are not in the wilderness alone. God is with you there. You are surrounded by angelic hosts that have been assigned to you— to minister to you. Holy Spirit is with you to reveal the purpose and the path to you. It’s not a place to build homes or remain but a place to journey “through.”

It is a place of redemption! It is a place where you are set free and a place where you are betrothed. My life truly began in the wilderness when I discovered He was there with me. From that point onward I moved forward and left behind the masters I had served and the chains that had held me captive. Some call it, “the dark night of the soul” but I call it the “door of hope.” My valley of weeping became the threshold of true joy and freedom.

When I emerged from this season into my springtime my husband gave me a gift. It was the verses from Songs of Solomon 2:10-13 engraved on slate. They read,

“My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.””

Don’t stop moving forward because the purpose of your wilderness is redemption! The winter will pass and flowers will appear. The sound of the dove’s song will be heard once again. You will bear fruit once again and intimacy will surround you like the fragrance of a garden in full bloom.

You are in a doorway of hope. Though weeping lasts a night…joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

It’s Transition Time! Your Segue To Something New

by Kathi Pelton

I returned last night from a trip where we helped facilitate a thirty-hour worship an prayer burn. During these thirty hours there was a “transition” every two hours where the musicians and prayer leaders would change. The beautiful flow that had been carried and unbroken for the previous two hours would reach a segue moment, where as smoothly as possible a new group of musicians and prayer leaders would take their place. Then a new sound and “flavor” would begin taking us into new realms of beauty.

As I woke up this morning in a personal transition from one event in Florida, back to a few days at home, and then onto another event this weekend, I heard the Lord speak to me about these transition moments or “segue” moments in our lives.

First, we need to understand that a segue is defined as a “smooth transition.” We experience segues in worship sets when skilled musicians can transition from one song to another, possibly in a different key. There is an art and skill to make that transition smooth rather than abrupt so the flow is not disrupted. There are segues in conversations that cause a change of subject to flow smoothly rather than being confusing and disruptive. The listener may be completely unaware that a transition has occurred; the flow was not broken because of a skilled segue. Learning to navigate life’s transitions or segues is just as important.

Today the Lord spoke to me saying that many of His people are about to be—or are already in—transition moments. He said that if you will allow His Spirit to navigate you through them He will cause it to be a “segue” (smooth transition) rather than an abrupt interruption. When the old (what you were previously doing) abruptly and suddenly stops, it can interrupt the flow and be jarring emotionally and spiritually and cause disruption to those around you. But God desires to give you a segue rather than an interruption.

A segue is still a transition from one thing to a different thing, but the difference is that it is smooth and does not stop the flow. The Spirit of the Lord is so skilled at creating segues in our lives. When He navigates these times they do not bring trauma or disrupt flow. They become a beautiful corridor that ushers you smoothly from one place to another. The place of transition can be beautiful when Holy Spirit is in it.

I think by nature many of us live for the “peak” moments where experiences and events crescendo isn’t breakthrough, but there can also be such beauty, peace, and joy found in the transition times. When you invite the Spirit of the Lord to turn your transition into an anointed segue then the people around you will hardly notice that a change has occurred, because it happened so naturally and peacefully. You will flow smoothly into your new season without disruption, disturbance, and stress.

I have been through many transition moments in my life and ministry. In the early years they were rough! I tried to navigate them with my understanding and found myself stressed and overwhelmed by the process. By the time the transition was completed, I was depleted! But throughout the years I have discovered that as I yield to the Spirit that a beautiful and peaceful segue from one season to another is created for me. But it truly takes an unbroken flow of surrender and of remaining “in the Spirit” to embrace and encounter them.

If you are sensing that one season of your life is coming to a close and another is about to begin, ask the Lord to give you an anointed, Spirit-led segue. This will assure that peace and joy remain in the transition.

On a side note: in my experience, when we don’t yield to seeing a smooth transition it not only creates a break in the flow for you personally but it is disruptive to those around you. What does not occur naturally and smoothly will feel “unnatural and harsh.” This will often create an atmosphere where people become offended, confused, and disheartened and “breaks” occur. We do not want our transitions to cause a break but to usher everyone into the new with unbroken beauty.

It is time for spiritual segues to occur in place of rough and intrusive breaks. “Spirit come! Come and usher us through spiritual segues that flow naturally and are hardly noticed. Thank you that You are the God of the crescendos and the God of the segues. We yield to the sound and the movements of the way transitions are supposed to be experienced.” Amen

There Is A “Sound Swell”— It’s The Sound of Revival!

by Kathi Pelton

There is a sound that is swelling in the atmosphere that will ignite revival throughout the world— it is the sound of the “laid down lovers” intermingled with the sound of the One who laid His life down.

I was taken into an encounter where I found myself before our precious Jesus as His hands were being nailed to the cross. With each pound of the hammer He let out a great cry. Yet in this encounter His cry was heard in my spirit as, “Yes! I lay Myself down!” Each cry was His yes given to save us— the “Yes” of One who is purchasing back His Bride.

Then I was taken to crowds of believers who were giving their “Yes” to lay down their lives for the sake of Christ. Their “Yes” was an unconditional and fully abandoned “Yes!” Then, suddenly the “Yes” of Christ from 2000 years ago, as He was being nailed to the cross, and the “Yes” of His sons and daughters today went forth as one sound. The echo of His yes and our yes intermingled into a sound of revival. I saw billions (not millions but billions) come to Christ in response to this sound!

An explosion of the sound of “Yes” is the trip wire that will signal revival…worldwide revival. No man, no law and nothing will be able to stop the sound. Old and young will run to hear the sound, to encounter the Man and to add their “Yes!” The “critical mass” required to for a chain reaction of salvation and purification is about to occur!

Do you feel and hear the swell of this sound? Release your “YES!” It is the unconditional yes that holds nothing back but rather it lays down all for the sake of the One who laid down His all. It is the yes of those who are completely dependent and surrendered. It is the yes that declares, “He is worthy of it all!”
