Targeted Cities of Violence Becoming Pools of Healing

By Kathi Pelton

Every Sunday evening I have a prayer call with a group of people from the Washington DC region to pray for our nation, our leaders and whatever the Spirit speaks to us as we wait upon Him. Last night we had a powerful time of prayer in the midst of all of the pain and rage happening throughout our nation.

During our time praying the Spirit kept turning my attention to the cities that have been targeted for violent riots and destruction. First I was led to begin to declare a new name over these cities (and over our nation) as the verse from Isaiah 62:2-4 flowed through my spirit,

The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. And you will be given a new name by the Lord’s own mouth. The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see— a splendid crown in the hand of God. Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in you and will claim you as his bride.”
‭‭
The Lord asked me to begin to declare over our nation and over these cities— where violence has erupted— that the Lord will change their name from “Forsaken” or “Desolate” to “The Cities of God’s Delight.”

Then I was taken into a vision where these cities were pools of stagnant water with the blind, deaf and lame (spiritually disabled) laying all around them. But suddenly angels descended upon these cities and began to “stir the waters” and when they did this the people, who had gathered there with many “spiritual diseases” began to see, hear and rise up and walk. They could see that Jesus is the only Savior, they could hear that He is the hope that they had been looking for and suddenly they could rise up from their lame posture and run to Him.

“…for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.” John 5:4

The diseases of deception; hopelessness, rage, murder, anarchy and rebellion were suddenly healed and captives were being set free.

It is time to stand in the cities where violent riots have broken out and call forth the angels to come and stir the stagnant waters so that they become healing pools. It is time to declare over our nation and these cities their new name, “Cities of God’s Delight!”

May the very ones who go to these cities to bring destruction and hate suddenly find their feet in a pool that heals them and sets them free from the disease of deception. May they encounter the living God and become repairers of the breaches.

Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Nashville, Los Angeles, New York, Salt Lake City, Cleveland, Raleigh, Louisville and more— call upon the angel of their Lord to come and stir the waters of your city and make it a pool of healing. Declare that their names, “Forsaken and Desolate” are no more but that God calls them by a new name! Declare the new name over your city.

What the enemy has meant for evil God will turn for good and for healing. Do not despair, do not bow low in hopelessness but rise up and see the salvation of the Lord come to our nation and to these cities!

“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
Psalm 126:5-6

As I meditated on these two verses the Lord highlighted the portion that says, 𝑇ℎ𝑜𝑠𝑒 𝑤ℎ𝑜 𝑔𝑜 𝑜𝑢𝑡 𝑤𝑒𝑒𝑝𝑖𝑛𝑔, 𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑟𝑦𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑠𝑒𝑒𝑑𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑠𝑜𝑤. I suddenly was overcome by the pleasure of the Lord for His sons and daughters as they chose to sow seeds in the midst of their tears. I could feel how proud He is of His children who are pushing past their personal pain to sow seeds of worship, obedience, truth, finances, encouragement and honor.

Though many of these precious ones have slept upon pillows soaked with their own tears, they still make a choice to face the morning by sowing seeds that bring honor and pleasure to the heart of God. They know that He alone is worthy of all honor; even in the midst of their personal pain.

The enemy may work hard to cause shame and pain but God has a promise for you,

“Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.” Isaiah 61:7

What appears now to be losses will soon prove to be your season of multiplication. Many prophetic voices are hearing the words, “Double for your troubles” and I believe this to be true. Negatives will soon be positives and not only positives but multiplications.

Hold onto hope! Though hope may feel like a “long shot” in the midst of the current circumstances and pain…still- hold onto hope and keep sowing seeds in the time of weeping.

“Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.” Zechariah‬ ‭9:12‬

I believe that many will experience their double portion breakthrough in the month of May. I specifically sense that this month is an open door that enters the body of Christ into a time of many breakthroughs. The summer months will be marked by miracles and remembered as the summer of miracles and summer of redemption! Multiplication will mark your life!

Though tears of pain have fallen, they have watered seeds of joy that will suddenly spring forth like wildflowers that are even now covering the fields. You will stand in awe as you witness the grace, kindness and goodness of God. Your tears have fallen and watered the seeds you have sown in faith and hooe. Songs of deliverance will soon be sung and the atmosphere will be filled with the sounds of joy.

Pray For President Trump! A Dream and a Warning

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was sent an email that shared a dream that someone had which had me in it. She did not know what it meant but felt that she was to share it with me. As I read it I received insight regarding what the Lord was saying through this dream. I believe it clearly points to a demonic plot against our president that can be likened to Absalom’s plot to kill King David (and all those with him) in 2 Samuel 17.

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

The dream begins on the outskirts of an alligator infested swamp where I am with the person who had the dream and other intercessors. We see the oldest, largest and most hidden alligator that lives in this swamp and grass was growing on the back of this great beast. The grass was there to camouflage and hide him from being seen. People were walking upon this grass completely unaware of what was right under their feet.

I believe that the swamp represents the United States of America. Our president is known for saying, “Drain the swamp!” But, the enemy knows that if we drain the swamp we will expose this Leviathan.

After the “swamp scene” the dream changes. In the next part of the dream I am instructing the intercessors to go to Colorado Springs. We go there and I go into a room with a bed in it and lay face down on it in order to receive a “word from the Lord.” Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord falls on me causing me to shake so severely that I fall off of the bed and onto the floor; shaking under His power. As I read this part I felt that it could represent the importance of the word that I will receive; which could be the interpretation to this dream.

I find it interesting that I send this group to Colorado Springs since this is where Lou Engel is now living and leading our nation into prayer and fasting from his home there. I also found out that Vice President Pence arrived in Colorado Springs the same day I received the dream (April 18th) which I believe speaks to the NOW timing upon this dream. Our Vice President is the head of the Coronavirus task force therefore God may be asking for prayer for him and his leadership in this role.

The last part of this dream is that the person (who had this dream) was with me in the room when the Spirit fell on me. She was holding her “revelation journals” and all she remembers is that she wanted giving me a scripture out of 2 Samuel. That concluded the dream.

The person who had this dream could not remember the chapter or verse reference from 2 Samuel. Yet when I read the dream I felt led to ask her the date that she had the dream and she told me the early morning hours of the 17th. I felt the Spirit say, “Go to 2 Samuel 17 and you will know what is happening.” So, I first went to the early verses in 2 Samuel 17. That is when I read these words that captured my attention,

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

Please read thorough 2 Samuel 17 regarding the plans of Absalom to take King David’s life. I feel convinced that the enemy has a plot to destroy our president and cause those standing him to run from him in terror (leaving him exposed).

Let’s pray that our president will listen to the voices of the prophets in his life and follow their instructions. A spirit of rebellion is plotting against him in a time where he is weary and exhausted. It’s an Absalom spirit that wants to take the place of “king” and rally the people under his leadership. Through the words of the prophet a strategy is made to save the King David. Because of this strategy King David and those with him are rerouted and saved causing Absalom’s plans to thwarted. He then hangs himself.

There is a victory if we pray and bring wisdom and warning to our president. Let us get on our faces and pray!

The 3333 Link Between The First Colony and The First Passover!

By Kathi Pelton

THIS CAUGHT MY ATTENTION TODAY! IT MAY BE A KEY FOR THE UNITED STATES!

Today, on Passover, Virginia announced that we have 3,333 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus. It is also, according to the Hebrew calendar, 3,333 years since the first Passover.

I felt the Lord quicken this to me and felt a correlation between Virginia being the first established colony (the firstborn) and the first Passover that saved the firstborn of the Israelites. Virginia, on a governmental level, has turned away from God and yet the Ecclesia is rising in prayer, worship and first love like never before. A fragrance is arising out of the state of Virginia. The state slogan is “Virginia Is For Lovers” and the lovers of Jesus are arising. She is the “firstborn” of the New World (first established colony) and God wants to save the firstborn!

Let’s all stand with the State of Virginia on this Passover and watch our first colony be the key to Passover! Let us see what happened 3,333 years ago happen once again!! Virginia is also the 10th State and it was on the 10th of Nissan that the unblemished lamb was brought into the houses of the Israelites. It is interesting that this is the 10th State in the Union because since I awoke this morning I began hearing the words from Hebrews 10:10 that say,

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

This state is the doorway to Washington DC; it’s where the international airport for those flying into Washington DC is located (as you leave the airport you enter DC). Arlington, Virginia is a doorway or gateway. As we declare the finished and completed work of Blood of Yeshua upon the doorposts of Virginia may it cause the death to pass by Washington DC and our nation. The Passover was to protect the firstborn and Virginia was the firstborn colony in our nation. It is the birthplace of our first president and it is a key place in this hour.

Pray— declare— and speak the blood of our Passover Lamb to be upon the doorway of Virginia.

For such a time as this!!

The Lamb Is In The House

By Kathi Pelton

Today is the 10th day of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar, which is the last Sabbath prior to Passover. Why is this significant? This is the day that during the captivity of the Israelites in Egypt God asked them to pick a spotless lamb (one without blemish) and to bring it into the house. This lamb would reside with the family over the next few days before “becoming the Passover lamb” who’s blood would be placed upon the doorposts of their home and cause the angel of death to pass by; sparing their first born sons.

There are a few points I’d like to highlight regarding this significant day where we remember the “lamb being brought into the house.”

First, during the time of captivity in Egypt the lamb was an Egyptian idol. Many of the Israelites had come under the belief system of Egypt during the 400 years of captivity and had adopted their idols as their own. Therefore, to use a lamb, especially a spotless lamb, for the sacrifice was to break the idolatry within the hearts of the Israelites prior to their deliverance from Egypt. It was also a statement where God is announcing to the “gods of Egypt” that He alone is God.

The lamb being brought into the house to “live among them” is such a beautiful prophetic picture of how Jesus, the spotless Lamb, would come and live among us prior to becoming the sacrifice that would cause eternal death to pass by us– offering us a way to eternal life and freedom from captivity.

The 10th of Nissan was when the lamb came to live with families. What a beautiful picture of the Lamb of God who came to restore His family. I am sure that the children of the home must have played with this little lamb and enjoyed the presence of this lamb during it’s few short days inside of the home. Even today, His presence is to be enjoyed and received by the young and old alike. Who doesn’t think that a lamb is so very precious? Earlier this year the Lord told me that very soon we would see infants “entertained by His presence.” I literally saw babies in the cribs giggling and being entertained by His playful and glorious presence being made manifest to them.

During this year, the Passover season is especially recognized. Never before has the entire Earth had a “plague” or pandemic that has caused the whole human population to be asked to go behind closed doors and stay with their families. I am praying and declaring that as this is occurring that suddenly families would see “the Spotless Lamb- Jesus our Savior” in their homes and they would receive Him. I am praying this for both the homes of the Believers and the homes of those who have not recognized that Jesus is the One who saves. He is their Passover Lamb.

I declare over every home and every family- “The Lamb is in the house!” Declare these words in your home and over your family. Let His presence fill your home and bring joy to your children. Yes, the very Lamb that came to dwell among us was sacrificed for our sins but He rose again and is alive forevermore. He once again is in our house to never again leave. He will never leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5).

The Lamb is in the house! The blood of Abel cried out, “Justice” but the Blood of Jesus cries out, “Mercy!” His blood speaks a better word! Mercy triumphs over judgement once again.

The Power Is About To Come Back On!

By Kathi Pelton

For days now, all I can say are these words, “We are being taken back to the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross!”

Nothing more!

That sums up the “prophetic word for this hour” that we are in! Jesus Christ and Him crucified for the sins of the world.

Repentance is falling upon the church and it is setting us free! Why? Because it is immediately met by the blood that cleanses us and the broken body that heals us. This is the message that we must carry into the days ahead. We will see that there is POWER IN THE BLOOD—wonder working power.

We have come up with so many formulated prayers; curse breaking prayers, blood line prayers, healing prayers, deliverance prayers and “repeat after me” prayers but I believe we are going to see much of those types of prayers fall away because when the power is about to come on and it will flow from the message of the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross only. Manifest power will flow like never before! This simple and true message can be carried and spoken by all His people.

As we are shut in, we are like the disciples in the upper room after Jesus ascended. We are waiting for “power from on high to fill us.” The Spirit of God lives in us already but I had a vision the other day of Jesus knocking on the door of our hearts and when we opened the door our hearts were so crowded with other “spiritual things” that there was no room for Him to come in and dine with us. Then a spiritual spring cleaning occurred and it removed all that was crowding our hearts till it looked like a clean and empty room. Then Jesus set up a table in the middle of this room and put the communion elements (the bread and wine) on the table. He declared, “It is finished.” Then He sat down at the table and invited us to come and partake of His body and His blood. As we did “power from on high returned and the glory filled His temple once again.

Then I heard this verse,

I am the LORD; that is My name! I will not yield My glory to another or My praise to idols. Isaiah 42:8

The clutter (yes, even spiritual clutter) in our hearts has demanded attention, affection, and precious time. Often we have become more fascinated by our spiritual discoveries more than the Lamb that was slain. But as we are coming up to the time of Passover, Good Friday and Easter I believe we will see the true gospel set us free from the captivity of things that have vied for our time and attention more than Jesus alone! In Him are all things and all things belong to Him. His glory comes and fills the temple as we return to the Love that came into a fallen world to live a spotless life and then take upon Himself the sin of all mankind. With every lash, every thorn, every scorn and every nail; the power of sin and death were broken. The with the words, “It is finished!” He made a way for mankind to have everlasting and abundant life. All power to save, heal, deliver and set free is in the death and resurrection of our precious Jesus.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Our upper room waiting is happening now as the Spirit goes through our hearts and cleanses us of the clutter (even spiritual things) that have become idols. Power will come as the body and blood of Jesus are restored as the source of all.

444: Why Is This So Significant As We Approach Passover?

By Kathi Pelton

I began hearing the Spirit speak to me regarding calling a corporate daily communion from 4/4/2020
-4/8/2020 (Passover). Though I was sure that I’d heard this I wasn’t sure why until I woke up this morning. That’s when the “why?” began to be revealed.

How My Day Began:

I woke up this morning at exactly 4:44 a.m. and heard the Spirit speak the words from Ezekiel 44:4,

“Also He brought me by way of the north gate to the front of the temple; so I looked, and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD; and I fell on my face.”
‭‭
Then, as I began to pray, I once again saw the date before my eyes, 4/4/2020. Then saw four days of a corporate communion prior to Passover beginning on 4/4. Once again, I didn’t know why or what the significance of the date 4/4 was. The fifth day, Passover (on 4/8) would also be a day of partaking in communion and anointing the doorposts of your home in remembrance of His deliverance from captivity.

As I began to pray further into what I was seeing and hearing I was led to look up the date (4/4) this year to see if it means anything significant to the Jewish people.

Sure enough it does!

It is the last Sabbath prior to Passover and it is called, “Shabbat HaGadol” (“Great Shabbat” שבת הגדול). It is the Shabbat immediately before Passover. The first Shabbat HaGadol took place in Egypt on 10 Nisan five days before the Israelite Exodus. On that day, the Israelites were given their first commandment which applied only to that Shabbat, “On the tenth day of this month (Nisan)… each man should take a lamb for the household, a lamb for each home (Exodus 12:3).” This lamb is the lamb that would be sacrificed four days later and its blood placed on the doorposts of every Jewish home.

This explained the four days that lead up to Passover but I felt that there was something more; something specific that was on the Lord’s heart. Knowing that we are in a time like no other time before, where the whole earth is closed in, I could feel the depth of purpose behind this time of communion—but what was it? As I prayed more and researched more I finally found the piece that I had been looking for!

During the time when the Israelites were living in captivity in Egypt “the lamb” was considered a god (it was an Egyptian idol). After 400 years of living in the Egyptian culture many of the Jewish people had begun to accept Egyptian idols as a part of their belief system; they had abandoned the purity of Yahweh being their one and only God. But in His mercy He was breaking idolatry by asking His chosen people to take an unblemished lamb (this Egyptian “idol”) and set it aside to be sacrificed and it’s blood sprinkled on the doorway of every Hebrew homes. This act, which was going to be used to save the firstborn of every Jewish household, was also setting them free from the idolatry that had crept into their lives. They too, would be locked behind the doors of their homes and instructed to not go out until the “death passed by.”

This commandment to pick an unblemished lamb happened on the Sabbath prior to when the death angel would pass by the homes of the Jewish people, sparring their firstborn sons from the plague of death. Today the Jewish people remember this day and call it Shabbat HaGadol

God has said that there is a timeframe from 4/4-4/8 to break idolatry in the church. These are places that we’ve conformed to cultural beliefs and behaviors that have replaced the pure and simple truth that is found in “The Blood of the Lamb.” I saw in my spirit many thing “added” to the purity of His blood that was shed and those things were defiling His temple; which is us.

This is an essential time to come as God’s chosen people and set apart time each of these four days to partake in communion with your entire household. Each day we will acknowledge the spotless and pure Lamb of God who, by the shedding of His blood and breaking of His body, paid the price for the sin of the world. We will partake of the pure and simple truth of our salvation and deliverance from sin.

It is the blood of Jesus that speaks a better word and has the power to save us from this plague called Covid-19. It is time to see the glory of God fill the temple (Ez. 44:4) as we fall on our faces in humility and repentance. These days of communion will prepare our hearts to be sparred from death and delivered from every form of idolatry that has crept into the church. As we are locked in our houses, just like the Jews were during that first Passover, we will once again be saved and delivered from our captivity.

It’s time to see the power of the blood of Jesus come back upon the church. It’s time to believe the old hymn we use to sing,

“Would you be free from the burden of sin?
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Would you o’er evil a victory win?
There’s wonderful power in the blood
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
Would you be free from your passion and pride
There’s power in the blood, power in the blood
Come for a cleansing to Calvary’s tide
There’s wonderful power in the blood
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the blood (in the blood) of the Lamb (of the Lamb)
There is power, power, wonder-working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb.”

The blood of Jesus is the only thing that will save us from this pandemic. It will deliver His people from idolatry and it will cause this curse to pass us by.

Will you join us as we partake in communion for four days (4/4-4/8)? There is power in the blood and a return to the cross of Christ.

Affections and Idols

By Kathi Pelton

As I was surveying the current state of the world around us, I was struck by the reality of the vast amount of distractions that have pulled on our “affections” prior to this Covid-19 quarantine.

From the activities of going to a restaurant for a meal– to seeing a movie– to shopping for one more thing– to attending a sports event(or watching one on TV)– we are constantly having our time filled with things that entertain and comfort us. Even Christian conferences, concerts and events have become a form of entertainment that has consumed the affections of many believers.

But suddenly they have all been removed. As I was pondering the issue of how all of these things that pull on our affections and how they have suddenly been removed I had a quick vision of idols falling. I don’t think that most people set out to or intentionally make any of these things idols but anything that exults itself above Christ or is vying for our attention and affections above God becomes an idol.

God, in His mercy, is aligning!

Prophetic voices have been prophesying “alignment” for a long time. We’ve been taking about the plumb line of God coming to align His people. It’s been happening on a small scale but not like we’d hoped or like we could see in the spirit. Now, suddenly it’s happening. We now can see the pull that these other things have had upon our affections— yes, even conferences and ministry events.

Are they bad? NO! Of course not. They are wonderful gifts but they were never meant to replace the personal, face to face time with our God. But if they become the focus of our affections that have replaced personal time with God and time in His Word then alignment is needed.

I remember when my husband and I had young children we felt to turn off cable and get rid of our TV because it had become a distraction to true face to face family time. The first week of its absence was like “going through withdrawals!” It had become the background noise in our home and it called for our attention to be turned toward it all the time. After that first week we adjusted and began spending greater quality time with God and with one another. Alignment took place in our family. We removed the thing that was becoming an idol because it was demanding our affections. Our souls wanted to be appeased which left our spirits malnourished.

As we go through this time let’s begin to take personal inventory of those things that have been removed that pull for our affections even more than God. We can repent and ask for alignment so that when these things are once again available we will live in alignment and balance. Let’s not have this crisis be a “mere moment” of sobriety from things that have become idols or distractions that have gained our affections above the Lord.

Ask the Holy Spirit to realign your priorities and the affections of your heart and soul. This truly is a moment in time that we are “coming back to our senses!”

I also want to encourage you to get face to face with your family members; those who are closed in with you! Let God rekindle the love between you and your spouse and let this be a time of restoration between parents and children. Share your hearts, carve out time that you walk together, play together, talk together and even heal together.

Let’s see our affections redeemed and those things that have become idols fall. Soon we will be able to eat out, see a movie, enjoy a sports event or attend a Christian gathering but let’s never again allow these thing to have a higher place then Jesus! May His throne in our private lives have the highest place!

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!

What If This Is A Dress Rehearsal?

By Kathi Pelton

The late John Paul Jackson prophesied about two pandemics that would come; the first would mainly produce fear but the second one would be very serious. I am sobered by the fact that God gave us words that we see coming to pass in our current days through voices that “left us too soon” like John Paul Jackson, Kim Clement and Jill Austin. “Give us ears to hear, Lord!”

As I’ve watched fear empty the shelves of grocery stores and even online warehouses I began to think about Joseph and how God gave him the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream (Genesis 41) where there would be seven years of abundance and seven years of famine. Because Joseph was given the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream he was given Pharaoh’s signet ring and put in charge of Egypt during this fourteen year period. Joseph took from the abundance of the seven years and stored grain “beyond what they could measure” that would provide in the days of famine that were coming. During the famine the nations went to Egypt to receive from Joseph’s storehouses the provision that would sustain their lives.

Yesterday I kept hearing in my spirit three words, “Fill Joseph’s Storehouse!”

What if what we are experiencing today with the COV-19 is merely the dress rehearsal for a much more serious pandemic? If it is a dress rehearsal then we, as the church, were not prepared! Where is the wisdom of Joseph that fills the storehouses with grain for the days of famine?

Will the Church arise and take the signet ring of the Lord to take charge and become storehouses that are “filled beyond measure!”

Yes, we want to fill the vats of heaven with prayer first and foremost; we are doing that. Yes, we want to prepare by turning the hearts of sons back to fathers and daughters back to their mothers! We are longing for that! Yes, we want to return to the fear of the Lord that releases wisdom; we are humbling ourselves to receive that wisdom. But, maybe we have forgotten to steward the practical provisions that will be greatly sought after in days of “famine” (or in another global pandemic).

What if the church had storehouses of abundant supplies that were “beyond measure” for the days to come? The nations of the world would come to where the storehouses are in the days of great need.

I am first an intercessors and worshipper; but I want that intercession to release wisdom that has foresight for the days to come. I love the prayer of Solomon in 1 Kings 3,

“…And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”

We need to be given an “understanding mind” to govern this great people! Both Solomon and Joseph were given “understanding minds” to know how to lead and govern; both spiritually and practically. Again, first and foremost, we need to see our nations (our hearts) turned back to God. Solomon’s prayer in 1 Kings 8:22-61 while dedicating the temple confirms that (read and pray those verses for your nation) but often we forget that we need an understanding mind to know how to prepare practically (to steward the abundance we’ve been given). Will we be the much needed storehouse when famine comes?

Let’s begin to ask the Lord to give us wisdom (an understanding mind) of how we, the Church, can become Joseph’s storehouse that is filled with grain for the days that are coming. I looked around my house this week and realized, “I am not prepared! Have I eaten my seed that was for the days of famine?” It’s a real question. This isn’t shame or condemnation but rather a sobriety of the current state of things.

Will God in His great mercy give us time to prepare? Will He give us seven years of plenty so that we will steward abundance for the sake of times of famine? Will we eat the “above and beyond” or store it for the days ahead? God, have mercy upon your people and sober us in this time to humble ourselves and ask for wisdom and an understanding mind.

If we will do this we will see the very ones who “threw us in the pit because of our dreams” come to us in times of great need and hold their hands out to receive from us (spiritually and practically). They will be like Joseph’s brothers and be restored to us; they will show honor the ones that they had previously mocked and threw into a pit.

We are to be the answer to a world in need; spiritually and practically. It’s not “either or” but “both and…

I do not know if what we are experiencing is a dress rehearsal but if it is we have been found wanting and must let this be a wake up call to both dedicate the temple AND to fill the storehouses!

Give us understanding minds God!
