Let There Be Light!

By Kathi Pelton

When my husband was attending Bible college in Louisiana, each week we would drive to pick up an elderly blind woman so that she could attend church and have fellowship. She lived in a very poor housing community and because she was blind she never needed to turn on the lights. Each week when we’d arrive we’d find her sitting in the dark. We would enter her one room home and click on the light sthat we could see— and each week, to our horror, the walls would appear to move because the light would expose the swarms of cock roaches that came out in darkness. They had multiplied exponentially in the darkness where a blind person lived. I share this story because I will never forget the shock and horror of seeing this each week when we brought light into the room. All that lurked in the darkness was exposed.

Today as I prayed for our nation I found myself praying that the Lord would “turn on the light and expose all that lurks in the darkness.” Quite frankly— that prayer is not a comfortable prayer because 2020 has surely been a year of exposurer that has left most feeling the same shock and horror that I felt as a young woman when I’d turn on the lights in this elderly blind woman’s tiny home. But if 2020 is a year of clarity and clear vision then we know from Ephesians 5:13-14 that “everything exposed by the light is made clear.”

“Everything exposed by the light is made clear, for what makes everything clear is light. Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.” Ephesians‬ ‭5:13-14‬ ‭

In some ways we were all similar to this precious blind woman prior to 2020. We lived in a blindness to what was lurking in the darkness of our nation (and the nations). Although we were not completely unaware of what was hidden by the darkness— we had no idea what was about to be exposed. 2020 has been as though someone came into a roach infested home and clicked on the lights!

Ephesians 5:8-11 says,

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light — for the fruit of the light results in all goodness, righteousness, and truth — discerning what is pleasing to the Lord. Don’t participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them.”

The good news is that once you know the gravity of the “infestation” then you can begin to bring the light that “results in goodness, righteousness and truth.” Exposure is shocking and even horrific but once the initial shock and awe passes it is time to clean house!

I personally make a habit of asking God to shine His light upon my life to expose any darkness or unclean thing that may be lurking in the shadows. I long for and earnestly seek to have clean hands and a pure heart. Though I do not enjoy the moment that something unholy is exposed, I am grateful for the mercy of God that brings light so that there is no darkness found within me.

As a nation it is as though we’ve been shaken out of a state of denial as the light has exposed darkness. It was already there but merely hidden from sight. It is hard to view and to look upon such vast darkness but just as in my own life, I pray that the light of Christ would come upon the deep and hidden places of darkness so that they can be exposed and made clean.

What now? That is a good question! His Word carries many answers for us. Although we know that in the end times the dark will become darker— we also know that the light will become brighter. So how do we exterminate what lurks in darkness? Let’s go further in the Book of Ephesians to chapter 6 beginning in verse 10,

“Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:10-12‬ ‭

Our battle in truly not against “flesh and blood” but against “the rulers, the authorities and the world powers of darkness— against spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.” Too many believers in Jesus are battling “flesh and blood” in this hour! Yes, these spiritual forces of evil that rule in the heavens are effecting the actions of mankind but if you’re focused on flesh and blood then you are fighting a losing battle. Just scroll through social media for five minutes and you will see how many Christian’s are battling flesh and blood. The true enemy is not found in the streets of America, in the halls of government buildings, in the media or even in those who lead social media platforms— the enemy is the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens that are controlling these individuals and agencies!

We must read further—

“This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having prepared everything, to take your stand. Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s word. Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:13-18‬ ‭

This is not a simple Sunday school lesson or song but a profound truth and strategy from Heaven about spiritual warfare. It’s time to stop talking about the roaches and reporting their movement and begin to “extinguish the flaming arrows of the evil one” through truth, righteousness, thr gospel of peace, faith, salvation, the Word of God and Spirit filled (led) intercession!

This is not only a year of seeing clearly but it is the year of the “mouth” (Hebrew year that means “Pey” which is the mouth). Our mouths can reveal light and truth. Paul, the writer of Ephesians, goes on to make this request in Ephesians 6,

“Pray also for me, that the message may be given to me when I open my mouth to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel. For this I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I might be bold enough in Him to speak as I should.” Ephesians‬ ‭6:19-20‬

It is time to open our mouths to “make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel!” We are His ambassadors, clothed in the armor of God— letting light come forth from the very way that we fight our battles and from the words that reveal the Light of the World in the midst of darkness!

Pray that we, as God’s people, will walk in light, in boldness (in Him) to speak as we should. The light that we shine will expose the darkness to all who see. Do not continue to fill your thoughts and minds with every report of darkness but rather be bold and speak forth light. It’s time to take every thought captive so that we can tear down stronghold rather than just pointing them out!

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:3-6‬ ‭

We need “divine power” that comes through full surrender to the obedience of Christ. We demolish every argument through divine power. “Not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit.”— divine power!

It is time to be bold in Him and reveal the mysteries of light! Let’s stop talking about the darkness so much and begin to be “ambassadors of light!” Although more exposure is still to come and needs to come, we also know that we are the ones to bring the light that awakens the sleeper so that the Messiah will shine the light of His truth to the world.

The Voice of the Lord Breaks the Cedars— Get Ready To See His Power!

By Kathi Pelton

In the past two weeks those of us who live in the Washington DC region have received numerous alerts on our phones regarding sudden thunderstorms accompanied by such extreme downpours that flash flood warnings had to be issued. These downpours have been amazing to witness— like signs from heaven. After receiving yet another one yesterday, I was reminded of a dream I had early in 2019, many months before I moved from the West Coast to the DC region.

In this vivid dream a heavy rain began to suddenly and unexpectedly pour; it was a downpour like I have never before witnessed that was more like a flash flood from heaven to earth. As this downpour hit the earth, flashes of lightning were accompanied by the simultaneous crash of thunder as these strikes hit a grove of tall evergreen trees, splitting them in two.

I awoke from the dream hearing the words from Psalm 29:5,

“The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.”

The Message Bible words it like this,

“God’s thunder smashes cedars, God topples the northern cedars.”

This dream came in the midst of the Spirit speaking to me daily about the need for the “fear of the Lord” to come back upon His people so that they can walk and release the fear of the Lord into the earth.

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

When the enemy comes in like a flood (through witchcraft, perversions, and evil of all sorts) the Lord also comes like a flood to raise up a standard against him. I believe that God’s voice is about to come and raise up a standard! As the fear of the Lord returns to His Church it will release the awe of God that breaks—shatters—everything that has stood against Him.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

A flood of evil that is being redefined as “good”has come to call darkness light and light darkness. But the fear of the Lord is about to touch the earth with a powerful strike that brings forth the Lord’s standard.

In my dream it was evergreen trees that were struck by this lightning. An evergreen tree was the symbol on the “Appeal to Heaven” flag that was flown by Washington’s Cruisers (George Washington’s first naval ships). This tree represented “Liberty” or freedom at the beginning of our great nation. Today it has become a symbol of prayer to see God return to our nation.

The definition of liberty is this,

the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.”

Or,

“the power or scope to act as one pleases.”

The enemy has been rewriting his definition of liberty within our nation and within the nations of the world. It has become a liberty to pursue evil and call it good while oppressing those who call for the righteous standard of God to be raised up. Within the context of the Bible the word “liberty” means freedom. This is the freedom to live apart from slavery to the masters of sin and the world’s systems.

Within the standard of the fear of the Lord we are given freedom from the grip of slavery to sin and to unrighteousness. The enemy has set up a Babylonian culture that enslaves and blinds many from the “way of freedom” that Jesus provided for us on the cross. When Jesus came and died, a way was made through grace for all to be set free.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭

When He died the veil was torn and we were given free access to boldly come before the throne of grace and be reconciled with God; enjoying His presence where true liberty is found. I believe that our nation (as well as the nations of this world) are about to see a great “rending of the veil” that has blinded the eyes of the world from seeing their Messiah. The gods of this world have stood like trees, creating a veil that blinds people from seeing Jesus and from the revelation of true liberty and freedom. These “gods” have cast a shadow of darkness that call darkness light and light darkness.

But wait! The Lord has the final say! His voice thunders; breaking the cedars and rending the veil of separation between God and man.

As the Lord returns the awe and the fear of the Lord to His Church it will release a flood and a sound that lifts up a standard that reverses the tide of evil with a tsunami of righteousness and truth.

“The time will come,” says the LORD, “when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine!” Amos 9:13

Now is the time to invite the fear of the Lord to come upon your life, your church, your city, and your nation. You are a part of the whole body and as the corporate anointing is established in the fear of the Lord it will bring liberty, freedom and breakthrough to the individual and the whole.

God is sending an alert to those powers and principalities that resist His ways and His will—

REMNANT— ROAR — RUACH: The Spiritual Three R’s of 2020

By Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”

REMNANT

I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.

As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”

From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.

The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.

There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings the revelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!

ROAR

The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.

After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.

“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8

I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.

RUACH

The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”

As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.

Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14

The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross 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.”

The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!

We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!

Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!

May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!

Let it be so!

Time To Breathe— Send the “Ruach”

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was talking with a dear friend who has Covid-19 and he was sharing the darkness he experiences when he cannot get his breath. I have also heard this from others who have contracted this terrible illness. They all say that there seems to be a dark assignment within this virus that is attached to “breath” or the lack of breath.

Then I began to think of George Floyd and his last words, “I can’t breathe!” Those very words have pierced the heart of our nation at a time where the victims of this virus are speaking the very same words.

As I prayed and pondered this I found myself taking deep breaths. My heart was aching for those who are struggling to breathe. But as I took these deep breaths I felt life and hope coming back into me.

The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4

I find it interesting that the Book of Job has numerous instances where the breath of God is mentioned.

“By His breath the heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent.” Job 26:13

“But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.” Job 32:8

We all know what Job had gone through— the loss of family, the loss of health, the loss of wealth, and the loss of friends. But in the midst of this book we find the breath of God credited as the source of life and understanding. I love when it says, “By His breath, the heavens are cleared.”

There is such a war raging in the heavenly realms over the breath of the Almighty coming upon mankind, and the sound that is to be released from His sons and daughters. This Hebrew year is represented by the mouth and the sound that comes forth from the mouth (5780: “Pey”— the mouth), and it seems the enemy has taken all of his demonic resources to block our breath so that our sound will be silenced.

Without breath a man cannot speak or even utter a sound! Recently I had a dream in which a musician could not get his breath and his song was being silenced; although this dream had other meanings I also am reminded that we need breath to speak or to sing.

As you know, in California there is a ban on singing in church (or “chanting” which is probably referring to corporate prayers). Why? There are natural reasons regarding controlling the spread of the virus, but we can also discern that the enemy is inciting men to fear the breath that is released when there is corporate singing or praying.

The battle is for the breath of God and the breath that gives us words of declaration and songs of praise. The enemy has sent a virus upon the breath of man. We are afraid to breath on one another; we are afraid that the breath of our neighbor will infect us and take the breath of life from us.

There is a demonic reversal of “breath” happening. When we breathe in we feel life but when a man is dying there is a final exhale that rids his lungs of air— never to breathe in life again.

Yet— the BREATH OF THE ALMIGHTY cannot be stopped! His sons and daughters must breathe in His breath and be filled with life once again. If you are experiencing a sense of being silenced or losing your song, your words, your voice, or your life— then now is the time to ask for the “Breath of the Almighty” to come and breathe life back into you!

Thanksgiving, high praise, declarations of “Who He is,” prayers, worship, and even the “groaning that is too deep for words” must go forth to defeat the assignment to steal the breath of life! Though we have been separated physically, it has not stopped the sound. More 24/7 worship is happening via the internet then ever before. This has created a second wave of warfare to remove the breath in order to stop the sound!

Now is the time to see a second wave of prayer and praise drown out the enemy’s army! It’s time to “Sing a little louder”—or a lot louder! Sing for those who cannot sing, cannot speak, and cannot find their breath.

There is the sound of prophecy that the Lord is releasing. I hear Him saying, “Prophesy breath!”

Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel‬ ‭37:4-6‬

Prophesy His breath, sing songs about the breath of God, declare the Word regarding the breath of the Almighty! Breathe life back into the air— pure life filtered through His Spirit!

Ruach” is the Hebrew word for “breath of God.” God breathes His Spirit (Ruach) into us! As I have shared in many of my articles in 2020, the Lord showed me prior to the new year that this would be a year that would be defined by, “Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord of Hosts. It is the breath of His Spirit— His Ruach— that is striking fear into the enemy! It is His Ruach who is needed as never before!

This is how we prophesy, this is how we gain understanding, this is how we live and breathe. Cry out for the Ruach to come— the breath and wind of His Spirit to blow and breathe life into the earth and it’s inhabitants. Do not hold back. Breathe life!

De-Crowning Corona

By Kathi Pelton

On Saturday night I either had a dream or a spiritual encounter in the middle of the night where the church rose up to de-crown and dethrone the Corona virus which caused it to lose the authority to rule and spread.

In this dream/encounter two things happened; we removed the rule or crown of the virus and we decreed the One in Revelation 19:12 as King,

“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.”
‭‭
As we declared that Jesus is the One King with many crowns— the virus bowed down and began to shrivel up and die. As long as it wore this demonic crown to rule over the nations (which really is a demonic power/principality that has a self-appointed crown) it controlled people, nations, times and seasons over the earth; serving the plans of the enemy. But as the Church— the Ecclesia— took her place of authority to remove the crown, which removed its throne of rulership and restored all rule, all authority and all dominion over the nations to the One with many crowns— Jesus Christ, then the powers that used this virus to rule with were dethroned and decrowned.

A more appropriate name for this virus and the powers that rule over it is Absalom! It is a self-appointed crown that seeks to rule. But there is only One who sits on the throne to rule over the nations with justice, righteousness and mercy: the One with many crowns, Jesus!

This virus wears the “mask” of a king but it is an imposter that seeks to silence and mask the Ecclesia from releasing the sound of deliverance. It seeks rulership and power but we declare that all power and authority belongs to Christ Jesus alone! No other power but His! No other king but the Lion of Judah!

Let’s declare aloud that Jesus Christ, the one with blazing eyes of fire, the one with many crowns, the one whose robe is dipped in blood and whose title is Word of God and “Faithful and True”— is the only One we crown. He is the One true king that every king, every ruler, and all creation will bow before. All other crowns must be cast down and the crown of Corona is not only removed but is trampled under the feet of the armies of heaven.

His eyes of blazing fire are about to look down upon the armies of darkness and oppression to send them into confusion, chaos, and defeat.

Arise, King of Kings— now, may Your enemies be scattered and destroyed.

Rising Above The Noise To Hear The True Sound

By Kathi Pelton

There is a noise that is heard on earth in this hour that has been sent to control and manipulate nations and people: it is a noise that declares fear, hate, accusations, hopelessness, ruin, conspiracy and unbelief. It is constantly flowing through the airwaves of communication to bombard peace with chaos and love with anger.

But— there is a sound that dispels the noise and parts the waters that seek to take us under. It is the sound of the voice of our God! To hear it, you must get above the noise. This is what the voice of our God sounds like,

“The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea. The God of glory thunders. The Lord thunders over the mighty sea. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars; the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf; he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with bolts of lightning. The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake; the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks and strips the forests bare. In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!””
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭29:3-9‬ ‭

His voice strips the noise (the enemy) of it’s power and it’s authority to alter the times and seasons that the Lord has put in place. His voice shakes what can be shaken to bring us back to the solid foundation of righteousness, truth and justice. His voice thunders above the noise and yet restores peace, hope and joy. His voice breaks hate with the power of agape love.

I would love to think that all believers in Jesus are tuned into the sound of His voice but based on what I’m seeing on social media sites I’d say that the noise is infiltrating the lives of many— bringing fear, anger, confusion and chaos.

But we can leave the realm of noise to enter the place where the sound of His voice echoes throughout time and eternity. It is there that we are reset, gain heavenly perspective and are strengthened in our inner man through the Holy Spirit.

“The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.” Psalm 46:6

The noise is the nations in an uproar but there is a roar that comes from the Lion of Judah that is mighty to save!

In the Book of Revelation, chapter one takes us right into the sound of His voice being like a trumpet. And what does His voice do? It brings John into a revelation of our resurrected Lord,

“And standing in the middle of the lampstands was someone like the Son of Man. He was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across his chest. His head and his hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.” Revelation‬ ‭1:13-16‬ ‭

The nations need to hear the trumpet sound of His voice that brings them into a revelation of “Who He is!” We, the church, need to remember and behold the resurrected King of Glory! He is a lion and when He roars all the earth is shaken.

I have shared in other writings of mine recently that I am hearing the echo of the “breaking of jars” that Gideon’s army of 300 broke to reveal the blazing torches and release the sound of the trumpet (ram’s horn). This echo or sound plays in my spirit constantly. I know that it is a prophetic sound and revelatory sound. Last Tuesday I was in Washington DC praying when this sound increased in my spirit. But this time I was given eyes to see the “blazing torches of fire” that are about to be revealed before the enemy and his armies— it is the blazing fire of His eyes!

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.” Revelation 19:12

I believe that before 2020 is completed we will experience a shift that comes when the sound of jars are broken once again but this time they will reveal His eyes of blazing fire and the sound of His roar. This will cause a confusion to come upon the enemies camp that brings forth a great victory. It will be the sound that breaks the noise!

It will be like the time that the Lord looked down out of the pillar of fire upon Pharaoh’s army,

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

It is time to get out of the noise and to hear the sound that brings hope, brings victory and reveals the Lion of Judah! May our voices join with the sound that exults the One with the voice that trumpets triumph! He is God— the earth belongs to Him and all that is within it.

A Dream About Washington D.C.

By Kathi Pelton

In May of 2019 I was in Washington DC with the Awaken the Dawn family for a gathering. During my first night there I had a dream about Washington DC and our nation that was so real and vivid that it shifted everything in my life. I have not shared it before now publicly.

The Dream-

In this dream I found myself standing in a large room in Washington DC and when I looked around I saw Christian ministry leaders that I know from all across the world. I saw leaders from Israel, Germany, Japan, Canada, England, Egypt and many other nations. I was completely surprised to see them with me in Washington DC. I turned to them and said, “Why are you here?”

The leader from Germany looked at me and said, “The Lord came to each one of us and said to us, ‘You must go and stand with the United States in this hour. If the United States doesn’t make it then your nation will not make it.’”

Then many of the leaders began to tell me how they were told to “bring their trust in God” and pour it into America. As they spoke about pouring their trust in God unto our nation I was immediately taken in the spirit over the national mall in DC.

It was night and nothing was lit. No monuments, no buildings— not even the Capitol Building— and the streets and national mall were void of people. It was dark and void of life.

Then I heard the sound of these international men and women, along with those from the United States, begin to release the sound of “In God We Trust” and as they did this the entire national mall lit up— but with a light so bright that it wasn’t just “lights coming on” but a glory that shone so brightly that it glowed with a brilliance that I’d never seen before.

Then an enormous silver coin appeared over Washington DC that was blank. As the sound of the nations and our nation continued releasing this “sound of trust in God” suddenly this illuminated view of the national mall appeared upon the coin with the same brilliance as it was on the ground and after it was imprinted in the coin suddenly the illuminated words, “IN GOD WE TRUST” appeared upon this enormous coin. I knew that something had been established and restored as these international leaders came to stand with us. This coin remained hovering over DC.

As I woke up, I immediately felt that this would actually happen— men and women from many nations will be asked by the Lord to come and stand with us in a time of great darkness to restore our trust in God.

In May 2019 when I had this dream I didn’t understand why it felt as though this would occur soon because our nation “appeared” to be in such a strong place. Now, a year later— I have much greater understanding.

This dream also was the trigger that the the Lord used for asking our family and ministry to move to the Washington DC region from the West Coast. We were told we must be here as 2020 began so we arrived in January.

I believe that the enemy is trying to take our nation down in order to trigger a domino effect in many other nations destruction. I know that many say, “As the United States goes, so goes the nations.” I have heard that for many years and it is not in any national arrogance or pride that I repeat it; but rather because in this dream these international church leaders spoke those words to me.

I am yearning and praying that at the right time that the Spirit of the Lord would speak to our international family and ask them to come to our nations capital to stand with us and to bring their trust.

The unifying of many nations with our nation would heal so many wounds. I have traveled the nations and have wept many times as I heard great hatred spoken (sometimes screamed) about our nation— even by Christians. God is bringing a John 17:20-23 movement and global “oneness” within His Ecclesia. We must forgive, repent and love our neighbor as ourselves.

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. 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.”
‭‭John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

Last night on the drive home from the 4th of July fireworks we pulled up behind a car with a Virginia license plate with the words upon it, “In God We Trust” and the American flag waving. The license plate letters and numbers said this, “KATHI17” (I wish I had gotten a photo!!). What!?!?!

I immediately knew that God was speaking to me on our 2020 Independence Day regarding this dream. I believe that one day, and one day soon— the nations will come and gather with us in Washington DC; oneness and trust will bring the glory of the Lord to illuminate our nation and restore it to trust in God again. I believe that this “coin” will be given to the nations as a gift and a prophesy for their nation to be restore as well. This may also represent that the US will bring about an economic restoration for the nations as we turn back to God. A coin can also be a symbol of “change!”

“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”

Making A List— Checking It Twice

By Kathi Pelton

My life is busy!! My brain is full and to be honest— I’m easily distracted!! Is anyone else like that?

So— I have learned to use lists! If I go shopping or have a busy day planned…I make a list. When I have an upcoming birthday or at Christmas time I make a list! WhenI pack a ministry trip or vacation—yep, I make lists to keep me on track and so that I don’t miss something important. When we moved cross country in January…A LONG CHECK LIST WAS ESSENTIAL!

What about with prayer? Yes— I make prayer lists!! Not for every prayer time since I like to live a lifestyle of continuous prayer. But for my focused daily prayer time I have a list. My list includes prayer points that I bring before the “Throne of Grace” and as I bring each point before our Lord, I then wait for His Spirit to lead me in His intercession for that person or subject. It is not dry or legalistic but rather it keeps me focused and at the same time leaves room to be led by the Spirit to go deeper and spend more time on what He reveals needs more attention.

My prayer list is also an ongoing testimony book of answers! I always leave space to add notes and the testimonies of answers to those prayers. It becomes the spirit of prophesy to the prayers yet to be answered.

For instance— I pray for all of our ministry supporters each day. As I mention them by name, I wait and I am sensitive to the Spirit giving me insight and His heart to press in deeper day by day for specific ones. I do the same thing with our children. I bring each one before Him and wait…always asking Holy Spirit to lead me and pray through me for what He knows they need; not just what I want for them.

Usually my list includes prayers for our nations leaders, our local church leaders, our city and nation. Again, as I bring these before His throne of grace— I pause and listen for His voice and to feel His heart. Some days it’s merely mentioning these things and other days it become deep intercession. He leads— I follow!

I also pray His Word. Praying aloud the scriptures over your loved ones, leaders and nation will never come back void! For instance, yesterday I had Ephesians 3:17-19 on my heart. It reads,

“I ask that out of the riches of His glory He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. Then you, being rooted and grounded in love, will have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

I began to pray these verses aloud over my children, my husband, our ministry supporters, our leaders and our nation. That they (we) would be rooted and grounded in love and the knowledge and fullness of God. His Word is always better than my words!

Far too often the church will view anything planned as “religious or legalistic.” That is not true! We can make lists and still yield and submit to the leading and flow of His Spirit. Often the church is not getting things accomplished due to distraction and the desire to be freely led— but think of how much is accomplished when you do both. You make a plan and you yield to the Lord directing and establishing your steps— even in prayer.

“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD directs and establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

So—as the Christmas song goes, “He’s making a list, checking it twice…” During this time of heightened distraction in the spiritual atmosphere it might be good to make a list! Then bring your prayer points before the throne of grace and where Jesus will meet with you.

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:16

A Remnant Army Is Arising

By Kathi Pelton

For the past several weeks I have been hearing this phrase in my spirit,

“Gideon’s remnant army is arising!”

In Judges 7 we read the story of Gideon’s army. The backdrop to this story is that the Israelites had done evil in the sight of the Lord so they had been handed over to the Midianites for seven years. The Midianites were extremely cruel and oppressed the Israelites so severely that they had taken to hiding in mountains and caves. The Lord summoned Gideon to call forth warriors to face the Midianites. As they prepared to fight them this is what the Lord said,

“You have too many warriors with you. If I let all of you fight the Midianites, the Israelites will boast to me that they saved themselves by their own strength.” Judges‬ ‭7:2‬ ‭

God was not only dealing with the Midianites that had oppressed the Israelites but He was also dealing with the false gods and worship of Baal that had been taking place within the Israelites. God was about to show that He alone is the deliverer and it is His power that sets the captives free.

Before we return to the story of Gideon’s army— is this story beginning to sound like a picture of what we are facing? A nation that has gone from “In God We Trust” to calling darkness “light” and evil “good.” Our nation flies rainbow flags that represent our turning to depravation and deception with great pride while they burn our own flag that once represented freedom and a nation that humbled themselves to trust in God. Cruelty and oppression is seen throughout our land against God’s people. We are censored and many are hiding in caves.

Back to the story—

After God reduced Gideon’s army to a mere 300 men (to face a vast and mighty Midianite force), He instructs them to go to their camp in the middle of the night only armed with clay pots that hide the light of their “blazing” torches and ram horns. These are not exactly the weapons of warfare we’d expect or the number of men needed to be victorious. God had reduced Gideon’s army from approximately 32,000 to a mere 300 men while the Midianite army was so vast that they were like the sands of the seashore— to many to count!

The Lord told Gideon, “With these 300 men I will rescue you and give you victory over the Midianites. Send all the others home.” Judges‬ ‭7:7‬ ‭

Here is what happens next,

“Gideon divided the 300 men into three groups and gave each man a ram’s horn and a clay jar with a torch in it. Then he said to them, “Keep your eyes on me. When I come to the edge of the camp, do just as I do. As soon as I and those with me blow the rams’ horns, blow your horns, too, all around the entire camp, and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’”” Judges‬ ‭7:16-18‬ ‭

Gideon and his group of 100 men went out first to the edge of the Midianite’s camp and they blew their ram’s horns and broke their clay jars revealing the light of their torches. This signaled the two other groups of 100 men to follow.

“Then all three groups blew their horns and broke their jars. They held the blazing torches in their left hands and the horns in their right hands, and they all shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon!” Each man stood at his position around the camp and watched as all the Midianites rushed around in a panic, shouting as they ran to escape. When the 300 Israelites blew their rams’ horns, the Lord caused the warriors in the camp to fight against each other with their swords. Those who were not killed fled to places as far away as Beth-shittah near Zererah and to the border of Abel-meholah near Tabbath.” Judges‬ ‭7:20-22‬ ‭

I believe that this story is a picture of what God will do in this hour. It appears as if the body of Christ is facing an enemy army that is so vast that they cannot be numbered. It also seems as though there is a mere remnant that has not departed in fear. What is left is but a “remnant.” Our weapons are absolute foolishness in the eyes of men but God will give us victory in the darkness of night with the blazing torch of Christ and the sound of the shofar and our shout, “For the Lord and for His Bride!”

The modern day Midianites will turn on themselves in fear and God will give a victory that no man can take credit for! It will not be by the strength of men but by the power of God!

It is interesting that every time I see the word “Midianite” the word, “Mediaites” replaces it. The media has become a vast army that oppresses God’s people. They lie, deceive and create a false narratives that controls the listeners. But watch as God gives victory over the “Media-ites!”

Our numbers do not matter! We may appear outnumbered but God and His heavenly hosts are with us. I hear the words from 2 Kings 6:16 declared over us,

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

We carry the blazing torch of truth and light in our left hand and the horn that sounds the declaration of “Yahweh!” in our right hand. The time is approaching where the clay jars will break and the torch will blaze for all to see. The time is coming for the sound of the ram’s horn and the shout of the remnant army to come forth that will grip the enemy’s camp with such fear that victory will come without ever entering into the battle.

There is a Civil War happening in the streets of America. It is the mobs against the cops, blue against red, law against lawlessness— but it is the remnant army that will receive the victory! Our voice will be heard and it will strike fear into the hearts of the wicked. The oppressor will not prevail and tyranny will not triumph! Gideon’s army will once again emerge with victory.

WATCH AS THE CHAOS SENT AGAINST YOU SUDDENLY BRINGS YOU INTO DESTINY

By Kathi Pelton

-I wrote this a year ago but felt the Spirit ask me to re-share it with you. –

I was taken into a vision where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos and distraction being sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it completely caught them off guard.

I’m from Northern California where the coastline is known for what are called, “sneaker waves.” These are very large and powerful waves that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline. These sneaker waves a known for pulling someone from the shallows or a person walking on the rocks out into the turbulent sea.

This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It may feel like you were wading in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him upon shores of grace—then, suddenly you are caught by a sneaker wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the raging sea.

In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos of this sneaker wave struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person who was being pulled under and drowning. As I saw this I saw the Lord with them and heard Him speak these words,

“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”

When someone is drowning, the worst thing that they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax into full dependency upon the one who has come to save them, the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.

The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. Fear may have been blinding you from seeing Him but know this; He is there to rescue and save you.

As the vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They began to relax into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to the shore. Yet it was not the shore that they began upon but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny. A new place that they had not ever been to before.

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us. This is happening for many right now. We all know from scripture that when the enemy comes in—like a flood— the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

Years ago the Lord told me to be aware that the demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos and robs men of peace. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. He and his army fall into absolute chaos and confusion— and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven but chaos and fear attract the hosts of hell.

If you have been caught by a spiritual “sneaker wave” that has pulled you into its grip; threatening to pull you under and drown you— then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust Him in the turbulent sea. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the new shores of glory where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
