Is There a Christmas Surprise Coming? I Believe There Is!

By Kathi Pelton

In late 2019 my family received a prophetic word about General George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas night 1776 (establishing the first victory for the continental army in the Revolutionary War). This confirmed the timing of our family’s move from the West Coast to the Washington DC region to begin the assignment God was asking us to go on. Yet— we knew that there may be more to this prophetic word then merely the timing of our move.

Then on 11/11/2020, while in Plymouth, Massachusetts with a group of national prayer leaders, the prophetic word about “crossing the Delaware” was brought up in conversation and a trusted (and keenly prophetic) friend said, “That has a much bigger meaning than the timing of your move!” When she said this is was like the word was prophesied over us once again. It was fresh and new.

During our time in Plymouth we added our signatures to the original Mayflower Compact and the Lord helped pen a new covenant/compact for this group to make with Him. We signed it and sealed it on the 400th anniversary of the pilgrims coming to our shores.

The next morning, only moments prior to leaving Plymouth we met a woman who was deeply hurting and “battle weary” from a lifetime of pain. I had the honor of leading her to the Lord and watching the bitterness of the battles wash away into the river of the overcoming love of Jesus. Her first name is Norma, which means: Precept. The definition of precept is this, “A precept is a rule or direction, often with some religious basis, dictating a way you should act or behave. Precepts are life lessons that are usually passed down to children by leaders/authority figures such as parents, teachers, or religious figures (I’ll return to this point and why it is significant in a moment).

For some unknown reason to us, right before leaving our time with our new friend and new sister in the Lord, she told me us her middle name, Lorraine. Well, my husband and I looked at each other in amazement because that is my middle name as well!! It means, “famous in battle”, overcomer or famous army. This lady and I had almost identical childhood trauma (which is why I could minister to her so readily) and we shared the same middle name; a name that represents a great battle that is overcome and becomes historic or famous. Her first name represented what we are fighting for in our nation and why we were in Plymouth— to secure the precepts of the original Mayflower compact and to receive a new covenant to secure for our children and their children! We also are in a great battle in our nation that will decide the behaviors, rules and precepts we will align with in the days ahead. Her salvation felt like a sign of the “conversion of a nation coming back to God.”

As we left Plymouth we put our home address into our navigation phone’s GPS and expected it to take us on the exact route as we took going to Plymouth. As we drove through the state of New Jersey we began to notice that our GPS had taken us off the “original path” and through a rural landscape. Not knowing where we were (but trusting our navigation system) we forged ahead. At one point we found ourselves on a narrow bridge crossing a river. As we crossed over the sign in front of us read, “Welcome to Washington Crossing”— I just about jumped out of my seat and quickly got my phone out to look for the name of the river that we had just crossed— YES— you guessed it! We had just crossed the Delaware River!

I knew that the journey we have been in the past year has been a prophetic one but this was a huge piece and significant moment! As we crossed the Delaware I felt like Miriam when she and the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea— I felt like dancing! I knew that God was saying that a miraculous crossing was about to happen and we would see a great (and soon to be famous) battle won that would secure the precepts of our nation. In my spirit I could see Moses and George Washington as they both faced impossible crossings that would establish victory and freedom from tyranny. I saw the bold courage that they carried as “men who brought nations into deliverance” come upon our leaders and upon the Church. This courage carried a mantel of great faith which gave bold courage in the face of certain defeat. God was about to do the impossible and reveal that He alone is the great I Am!

My family crossed the country a year ago between the dates of December 26th – January 10th. These dates are highlighted once again to me. We are in a true spiritual and national battle that the global Ecclesia will need to battle in prayer throughout the month of December but I sense that there will be a crossing over that begins on Christmas that will secure a victory over what appears to be sure defeat.

We cannot look at what our eyes see because we will merely see a sea before us and a great enemy army at our backs. We must keep our eyes upon the Lord and trust in Him! Can we, even now, establish the precept of “In God We Trust?” In the midst of tyranny, oppression, the seeking to remove religious freedoms and a plethora of anti-Christ agreements— will we trust God or will we shrink back in the fear of men and in what appears to be sure defeat. We lay everything down to see the glory of the Lord established in our nation and throughout the nations of the world.

Let us receive the mantel of Moses and the bold courage of George Washington, who both faced the impossible and believed that in the face of sure defeat, it is God who can establish our victory.

“Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. “Let us break their chains,” they cry, “and free ourselves from slavery to God.” But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them. Then in anger he rebukes them, terrifying them with his fierce fury. For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem, on my holy mountain.” The king proclaims the Lord’s decree: “The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession. You will break them with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots.’” Now then, you kings, act wisely! Be warned, you rulers of the earth! Serve the Lord with reverent fear, and rejoice with trembling. Submit to God’s royal son, or he will become angry, and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities— for his anger flares up in an instant. But what joy for all who take refuge in him!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭2:1-12‬

2021: A Wrestle or a Dance?

By Kathi Pelton

I recently had an encounter with the Lord regarding 2021 and beyond that was both simple yet profound. In the encounter I heard the words, “It will be either a wrestle or a dance.”

Then I saw a vision of Jesus inviting his people to dance with him. I knew that he had been teaching his remnant to move in step with him in a new, more aligned way during 2020. It will be so vitally important to “let him lead” in the days ahead. The dance will be intimate, face to face, and hand in hand but his feet will lead and ours must learn to follow. There is a saying that dance instructors use that is important to remember,

“Don’t look at your feet but rather look in my eyes and your feet will follow.”

As we keep our eyes fixed upon his, our feet will easily follow.

Then I saw others who insisted on functioning the way that had always done before. They were still trying to take the lead (in their personal Christian life, in family, in ministry, in business and in government). They immediately began stepping on Jesus’ feet and getting all tangled up in his steps. What was designed to be a dance suddenly became a wrestle. It will be a much harder path for those who do not draw near and let the Lord lead.

I choose the dance and I pray that you will too! It is time to draw very near— take his hand, and fix your eyes upon his— let the dance begin.

“We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭

Amen!

YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP! “It’s Time To Cross Over”

By Kathi Pelton

Last November, our family was praying about moving from Oregon to Virginia. We knew that the Lord had directed us to do this, and we knew that the timing of our move was of strategic importance. As we waited upon the Lord, a dear friend who is a part of our prayer team came to our house and brought Jeffrey and me a prophecy she had received. She saw General George Washington crossing the Delaware River on Christmas night.

Even though we didn’t enjoy planning a cross-country relocation during the holiday season, we knew it was a genuine word from God, and we needed to be prepared to go; and we did.

But there is more to the story, and it applies to the time we all find ourselves in.

In December 1776, Washington had planned to cross the Delaware to attack a garrison of enemy troops stationed in Trenton, New Jersey. The river was frozen, and the conditions were so harsh that though Washington’s attack was to comprise three separate crossings, only one out of three could cross—and the successful vessel contained George Washington himself. Prior to the crossing, Washington’s carefully planned timetable was so badly behind schedule because of the weather that he contemplated canceling the attack.

Across the river, a spy had warned the British army that this surprise attack would take place, but the commanding general was arrogant and believed it to be another “false alarm,” so he did not prepare his troops. Washington’s crossing and surprise attack secured the Continental Army’s first major military victory of the Revolutionary War. The courageous decision by General Washington was clearly a “succeed or die” scenario.

Now, back to the prophetic word given to us regarding “crossing the Delaware”…

Jeffrey and I were in Plymouth, Massachusetts for the 400-year anniversary of the arrival of the Mayflower and its pilgrim passengers carrying the Mayflower Compact. During our time, I mentioned the prophesy to a prophetic friend, and she said, “Oh, that is very prophetic; way beyond your move to Virginia.” When she said that, it hit my spirit with a clear witness that caused it to be at the forefront of my mind.

As I write this article, we are returning to Virginia from Plymouth, Massachusetts, and driving through stormy weather. Our GPS, instead of sending us the route we had taken several days earlier, instead revised our course through unexpected rural territory. We found ourselves in a tiny town in New Jersey and on a perilous one-lane bridge crossing a river. As we crossed, the sign ahead of us read “Welcome to Washington’s Crossing.”

Unknown to us, we had just crossed the Delaware River at the very location Washington had on Christmas Day in 1776. We were surprised and recognized the prophetic significance, as we were traveling in a storm, during a time that our nation is once again in a battle.

The British army was warned that the continental army would cross and attack, but its leader was arrogant and did not believe. Therefore, he was not prepared—which gave Washington the victory! I believe that our “prophetic rerouted surprise” should speak to us all. General Washington considered canceling his surprise attack because of adverse conditions. But somehow, he received courage to proceed.

I believe that this is a picture of what we face today in the United States. We are in a war for our freedom, for the upholding of our righteous foundations so we might remain “one nation under God!” Our president is in a battle with such harsh conditions surrounding him that there is surely a struggle to know whether to forge ahead or concede defeat. He is looking at an impossible crossing, but we must believe that God will put on him a spirit of courage given General Washington—or perhaps even Moses, when the Red Sea stood before him and God’s people.

The enemy is mocking with arrogance, confident of victory, but God will bring a surprise attack that will give us a much-needed triumph.

We must pray for our president to have a courage to finish what he has planned no matter what he faces! Freedom is coming to our nation. I see light and freedom coming. I believe that from now until just after Christmas, we need to battle and have courage because WE WILL CROSS OVER!

The crossing of the Red Sea with Moses and the crossing of the Delaware with General Washington are both historic accounts that speak prophetically into the times we are now living. Both crossings were successful.

Do not give up! Pray and forge ahead.

Time To Rule and Time To Occupy!

By Kathi Pelton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We decree:

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

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

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

A Vision of “The Lost Boys” (America)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Jubilee! Debts Are Being Canceled!

By Kathi Pelton

During a dream last night— that may have actually been a spiritual encounter— I was taken before the throne of God where I laid before the Lord regrets, sin and shame from issues and moments that went back twenty and thirty years ago. Many of these were things that I did not remember or had “chosen to forget” out of shame or regret in my youthfulness and immaturity. I somehow understood that these “forgotten memories” or hidden places of shortcomings, failures and sin were carrying roots of shame and regret that were still attached to my soul. They were like a debt that had chained me to a forgotten failure.

The beautiful thing was that as I brought each one before the Lord, I also brought every person that my failings had a direct result upon to be healed and set free. Though there was pain involved, there was such a beautiful release and intercession for anyone I had sinned against in my life. Though I absolutely believe that all of these sins had been forgiven long ago, the Lord (in His mercy) send an angel to usher me into a deeper place that removed the impact and harm that had come upon my soul and upon the soul of others through my past sins. It was a “jubilee for the soul!”

“…and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” Matthew 6:12

I was experiencing in this dream (or dream encounter) the cancellation of debts that had enslaved deep and hidden parts of my soul. I truly had no idea that I was carrying these old “debts.” Whether or not God saw them as debts (because He paid our debts and forgives our sins); somehow, in the deep recesses of my soul I carried them as chains (or roots) of shame.

I would normally keep an encounter like this private due to the personal nature of it but felt to share it with you because I sense that God has sent out angels to give souls a “jubilee” from regrets and debts of past failures. Again, I wasn’t even consciously aware of any of these areas nor had I even remembered most of the memories.

Since God does not remember our sins of the past that have been put under the blood of Jesus, then why did I have this encounter? I believe that it is for two reasons; the first was that these particular instances had marked my soul with a wound of shame that I was not able to deal with at the time they occurred; therefore, I received forgiveness but my soul held onto regret and shame that I needed to be set free from. The second reason is that in this dream/encounter, I was able to become aware of and intercede for all of those who “the sins of my youth” might have harmed in any way.

As I was able to bring these people before the Lord I saw angels rush to them to heal old wounds and remove spiritual scar tissue that has affected them negatively in any way; large or small. I encountered angels tending to my soul as well— to unentangle and free parts of my soul that were rooted in the shame of past sins.

God desires our freedom! Sometimes we don’t even know that we aren’t free from certain things because we’ve never experienced full freedom. Again, I had no idea that these roots of shame or regret even were buried in the recesses of my soul. Yet, just the day before I had invited God to send an angel to fully align my soul with greater freedom and greater healing.

I want to share one last thing— I did not hear or see this but there was a moment in this dream that I brought before the Lord areas of long past struggles and fears regarding provision that had caused me to make bad financial decisions (out of fear) that directly affected my family. As I brought those regrets before the Lord I had the strongest sense that many people where going to have a similar encounter that would usher in a financial jubilee as well. In December 2019 I felt that the Lord said that 2020 would be a year that many would receive their “jubilee!” I saw financial debts canceled and paid in full.

I know that my personal experience was a “jubilee of the soul” but am also expectant that we will begin to hear reports of people having a financial jubilee as well. Spiritual, emotional and financial debts will be canceled and the enslavement that is attached to “old debt” will come off; like chains falling away, so that people can walk forward in new freedom!

This is a time of reset! It is a reset for each of us personally and a reset for His people corporately. He does not want the enemy to have any inroads or access to our souls or our lives from past sins, failures, regrets or debts. He is the God of Jubilee! I declare a spiritual and financial jubilee upon each of you this day!

“This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
” Psalm 118:24

Clothed In Christ

By Kathi Pelton

I always love the Apostle Paul’s honesty regarding his self-evaluations in the scriptures. The more that the beauty and holiness of Christ is revealed to him, the more he realizes how weak, wretched and lacking he is. BUT…he does not at all despair in his self-evaluation because it merely causes the “glory of God” to be revealed all the more.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

We all have weaknesses and areas that we battle for greater victory in. Some days end in great triumph, as Christ’s beauty and power is made manifest in you, and other days you lay down more aware of your weaknesses then ever before. It is in those times that, like Paul, that you can boast in your weakness because it is His power that will be seen and His glory that will manifest. On those hard days, before your Father, all that is seen is “Christ in you and His righteousness covering you.”

You are clothed in Christ. When you approach your Heavenly Father, He does not see your shortcomings, your weaknesses or flaws— He sees His Son! There is no stain upon Him and therefore— no stain is seen upon those who have been “baptized into Christ.”

“For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” Galatians 3:27

Of course this does not mean that you make concessions for sin or that you do not fight against the temptation that comes but it does mean that He covers your nakedness in garments of righteousness and salvation. You need to continually put on “the new self” and yet know that when you fall short that you are still “Clothed in Christ.”

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah‬ ‭61:10‬ ‭

What a beautiful truth that you can cling to! This gives you great cause to rejoice and be joyful. Yet, the enemy desires to steal this promise and truth from you. He sends his demons to watch for your areas of weakness, to provoke you in that area and to mock you in regards to that weakness. They whisper accusations to bring you shame and to cause you to hide from God. And yet, you must remember that you are not naked and exposed but clothed in robes of righteousness— the righteousness of Christ. There is no need to hide for a garment has been provided for you.

Once again, though you are clothed in Christ— daily remember to wear His righteousness in a manner that displays His worth and faithfulness. Just as you take up the armor of God each day, so you can train your soul to get dressed each morning in garments of righteousness.

When I became a Christian at 18 years old— I drastically changed the way that I had previously dressed. My nakedness had been exploited and even used for my advantage to gain what I desired. But when I was baptized into Christ, I was not only spiritually clothed and covered with His robe of righteousness but I also had to learn how to outwardly dress different and how to live differently. Now, 38 years later, I am still pressing in, through the help of the Holy Spirit, to see my life match and align with the garments that He has placed upon me. I do not want to be a stumbling block for those who see me therefore I deeply desire and fight to see Christ revealed in every part of me.

You are on a journey into maturity. It is so important to know that while you are journeying— “He has you covered!” Otherwise, you would be utterly defeated even before you began. You also must know that the pathway to purity never ends. We will always fall short of His glory but His righteousness is a robe that covers all of our unrighteousness. You are left never left naked and ashamed before your Heavenly Father.

So today get up and say to your soul, “You are clothed in the righteousness of Christ.” Then put your spiritual armor on and go out in victory, boldness, purity and His strength. It’s time to take down some giants by wearing His name!

Come Into The Embrace of the Overcoming One

By Kathi Pelton

While I was in worship and prayer yesterday I was suddenly encircled in the most intimate and powerful embrace I’ve have ever experienced— which immediately had me undone. As this happened I saw the “overcoming arms of Jesus” outstretched upon the cross with torn flesh and pierced hands that flowed with blood. I heard the words, “The Lamb has overcome.” Then, suddenly, I found those very arms around me, holding me in an embrace that was releasing love, mercy and overcoming authority into my life.

“But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” Psalm 3:31

His “overcoming arms” around me became like a shield— my glory— and it lifted my head with renewed confidence and courage. I immediately felt an inner-rest come upon me only came through all that He had overcome and defeated. I was no longer weary from all that I saw that needed to be defeated. It became the tangible reality of Zechariah 4:6,

“Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,” Says the Lord of hosts.

His Spirit that is in me carries His overcoming power and authority. His Spirit was allowing me to come into the embrace of the overcoming arms that paid the price for me and defeated sin and death. He overcame all the world! It was like being embraced by the words, “For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son.” (John 3:16).

A supernatural inner rest washed over me and through me like a cleansing flood of His finished work. I was brought into the arms of the author and finisher and all striving washed away.

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

Rest in Christ can be present even in the ongoing activity of the believer because it is an inner-rest that goes with you and silences demands while putting an end to striving. It wraps you in the victory and confidence of His finished work as His Spirit works through a yielded vessel. Striving ceases, fears are calmed, demands are silenced and a canopy of love comes over you like the wing of a mother hen over her chicks.

“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” 1 John 4:41

He is in us, around us, before us and behind us. We have overcome because the Overcomer lives within us. The world may scream loud and demand an audience but the blood of Jesus speaks a better word and defeated the voices of threat and accusation. So we can rest in Him— our Risen King.

“Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” 1 John 5:51

Come and find rest in the arms of the One who has overcome. Yield to His arms of love that will anoint you with His overcoming authority and seat you in Heavenly places where you will reign with Him forever.

Because He has overcome— you have overcome! Victory is yours.

“To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” Revelation 3:21

Heavenly Chambers are Opening Up

By Kathi Pelton

During a time of worship I heard the Lord say to me,

“I’m opening up chambers of revelation. These heavenly rooms are open to My sons and daughters.”

I understood that within these chambers were mysteries, wisdom, supplies and experiences that would be impossible to understand before this time. Within them His people will experience the “more than they can ask or imagine (Eph 3:20)”.

I sense that the opening of these chambers will reveal mysteries that we have not understood before this time. These chambers were created for this kairos time on earth.

The chambers are now open; rooms of healing, rooms where disorder comes into order, rooms filled with blueprints for inventions, rooms with new sounds and new songs, governmental rooms, war rooms with strategic plans and orders, revelation rooms and rooms where intimacy releases secrets that will be entrusted to the bride…creation rooms. Lives will change within these chambers.

I saw a room that I can only describe as a “time chamber”. Within this chamber words that had been spoken in past times were now words. I saw callings, mantels and assignments that were not fulfilled or lived out by lives that had passed awaiting for “such a time as this”. As God’s people entered this chamber these could be brought forth and for lack of a better word, re-activated. Old things were like fresh manna within this room. There is no “past” in this room; only NOW or Kairos time.

“The One who builds His upper chambers in the heavens And has founded His vaulted dome over the earth, He who calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the face of the earth, The LORD is His name.” Amos 9:6

We have access to these new Heavenly upper chambers. Creation continues to expand in these chambers and what is contained within these rooms can be brought to earth.

“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” Psalm‬ ‭27:4‬ ‭

Gaze on His beauty, seek His wisdom and ask Him to take you to these new chambers.

Rosh Hashanah: 5781— The Crowning of the King and the Blood that Declares a Better Word

By Kathi Pelton

As you enter this Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, it is a time of new beginnings, renewed faith and breaking out of the old patterns that have hindered you so that you can embrace God’s perfect patterns and ways.

Rosh Hashanah means “Head of the Year.” It is the day that determines and sets into motion the rest of the year ahead. Just like our heads (minds, thoughts, decisions) determine our path and our actions so is it believed in the Jewish faith that this time determines the days ahead.

In 2019 I had a profound experience that began right before Rosh Hashanah when I heard the Spirit speak and say, “It’s coronation day.” I saw the Lord ask His bride to kneel before before Him and He was crowning her as His Queen. I knew that it was an “Esther moment” for the church where she would begin to walk in greater authority and favor. Because of this experience many believers throughout the world bowed before the King together to receive this coronation— the crowning of His queen.

Then, as we know— soon after Rosh Hashanah 2019 (5780), we began to hear the first reports out of China of a virus that had the name “Corona” within it; meaning crown. We paid little attention to it as it was so far from our shores and from our thoughts. But, within months it would change the entire world. I believe that the enemy is so threatened by the authority of God’s Bride that he devised a plan to stop and usurp the authority of the Ecclesia from establishing what God desired. But, as most of us know, this has severely backfired and the Church is rising up in greater global unity and authority than ever before. All I can say is, “Who can stop the Lord Almighty?”

As we approached Rosh Hashanah 2020 (September 18) I had another experience that was similar to the one I had in 2019, when the Son crowned His bride. This time I heard the words, “Coronation of the Son.” I immediately saw God’s people crowning Jesus as King of their lives, King of their nations and King of the universe.

Days after this experience I was on a Zoom call with a few of our international family members where I shared this experience. A Messianic Jewish man (Asher Intrater) was on the call with us and he began to explain to us that a key part of Rosh Hashanah is to proclaim God as “King of the Universe.” It is a coronation proclamation.

You can enter into this “Coronation of the Son” to begin this “Head of the Year” by proclaiming these words,

“Jesus, you are the only Savior, you alone are God, you are King of my life, you are King of the Earth, you are King of the Universe and you reign forever and ever.”

As you crown the Lord, King of your life at the head of the year, you are also proclaiming that you are the “head and not the tail” because you are His bride and His queen. His reign has given you authority to make decrees and proclamations that must be upheld. You can decree and it will be established when you do so from the place of bridal authority and from the power of His blood.

This new Hebrew year, 5781, means, “strong silence in the mouth.” To better understand what this means we can look at the blood of Jesus. Though no sound is heard, it is able to redeem, resurrect and restore.

“You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks a better word of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.” Hebrews 12:24

The blood of Jesus— though silent— speaks a better word! It speaks and establishes forgiveness, justice, truth and righteousness. As His blood poured down the cross and out upon the ground, it spoke of the greatest love and sacrifice that will ever be known to mankind. It declared that “whoever believes shall be saved and have eternal life!”

I believe that this year we are being called to enter into the “finished work of the cross” where the silent blood of Jesus speaks more loudly than any voice heard on earth. This silence represents an inner rest. It is a year to enter into His rest, even to strive to enter into His rest.

Though we have come out of the previous year (5780) far more aware of our weaknesses, more aware of our shortcomings and having wrestled with God which has left us with a limp— we will come up out of this wilderness leaning upon our Beloved.

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?” Song of Solomon 8:5

To lean upon another is to depend on them, trust in their strength and to steady yourself with their uprightness. We are trusting in and resting in His faithfulness, goodness, righteousness, holiness, justice, mercy and grace. We are invited into cease striving so that we know that He alone is God and King of all. Do not overly concern yourself with your weaknesses or with your limp because “the greater the limp— the greater the leaning will be.” Lean into Him (and upon Him) like never before.

As we make Christ our resting place (not merely a place to visit but a place to dwell and call “home”) then in turn we become a resting place and dwelling place for Him. Isaiah 66:1 says,

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 be?”

Then it goes on to say,

My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the LORD, have spoken! “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.”

As we proclaim Jesus as King of our lives and King of the universe— we are aligning our lives for a year of blessings, favor, prosperity and peace. Though the world rages in chaos and strife; God’s people will find rest, peace and blessings as they live in His reign and His favor.
