God Says, “Daughters Arise!”

by Kathi Pelton

On this day 99 years ago it was ratified throughout our nation that women had the right to vote. It became the “Law of the Land.” No longer could women be forced to sit by and watch men only exercise their rights.

I was recently asked to write a story for a book that is concerning the challenges of being a woman in ministry. Though the challenges can appear subtle and overlooked because of familiarity, they still exist and are often “not so subtle.” The stories I’ve heard from other women in ministry and even experiences that I’ve had would shock many at how far we still have to go to live in the truth that we were created equal. We have come a long ways but still have a long ways to go.

I am not a “women’s rights activist” but I am a believer in equal rights for race and gender— and the church should be leading the way in this.

As I sat down with the Lord today I felt His strong passion for seeing what He has placed in His daughters given the value and place that they are due. His Spirit is not less in women or His gifts somehow diminished; yet often we still see a “token women” thrown into a line up of a dozen male speakers (as if to prove that there is an honor for them being given). I sense that the Lord is about to deal with an age old prejudice that has existed in the world and in His family of God for far too long. I hear Him say, “Daughters Arise! Women Arise! No longer will you be held down or held back!”

God, in His mercy, is dealing with all areas of prejudices that have misinterpreted His scriptures and His creation. God has a dream of “oneness” and that oneness prefers and sees other of any race or gender as equal or better than themselves.

Let Him examine our hearts and wash away all remaining prejudices that have infected His people with wrong beliefs or actions. May His might women arise in this hour in both humility and authority to reveal Christ in them unashamedly and without being censored.

We are His workmanship— created to fully express Him without being held down.

Washington, D.C. Ministry Update— and More!

After our week in the capital of Canada (Ottawa, Ontario) to be a part of the Watchmen for the Nations “As One” gathering and to pray on Parliament Hill, we headed to Washington, D.C. to pray in our capital city.

Stopping In Gettysburg to pray along the way was a surprise request from the Lord but turned out to be a powerful time.

After arriving in DC we have gone to numerous places to pray together; the Lincoln Memorial, Viet Nam Memorial Wall, David’s Tent, Arlington National Cemetery, The US Capitol, US Archives and the Supreme Court.

Yesterday we gathered with Bound for Life and did a “Silent Siege” for the unborn at the US Supreme Court. After the silent siege we prayed and took communion together.

Tomorrow we will be speaking at a church just outside of DC in Virginia. We are looking forward to connecting with more of the body of Christ in this area.

On the 20th we will leave for Fredericksburg, Virginia to prepare for the Awaken the Dawn National Prayer Gathering with Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Brian Francis Hume, David Bradshaw and others. Please pray that all the the Lord has on His heart for this time will be accomplished. The gathering is August 22-24.

Once again we want to give you the opportunity to invest in the fulfillment of this prayer journey that we have been on along with many others who have prayed and stood with us in financial support. We stepped out in faith to say “yes” to the Lord’s request for us to go on this lengthy journey that spans two nations and many states and provinces. Thank you for stepping out with us– we know that your reward will be great!

Do You Hear His Whistle?

by Kathi Pelton

In all the reports written and conversations being held regarding a few known voices that have “fallen away” we must continue to know that the Lord has sent forth His whistle and many are gathering with a resounding, “Yes!” in their hearts to give all for the sake of His glory. Though the enemy is highlighting the few losses— we must not forget that the gains are far greater!

“”I will whistle for them and gather them in, for I have redeemed them, and they shall be as many as they were before.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:8‬ ‭

Though this verse is specifically speaking of Israel, it also speaks of the restoration of His family that has and is being grafted in. Headline news mostly focuses on the losses but the Lord is announcing the advancement and the multiplication of sons and daughters that are responding to His whistle. They are returning to the Lord in numbers far greater than the few who are falling away. We can pray for those ones but we must not forget to rejoice at those who are daily being added to the family of God and those who are leaving all to gather at the sound of His whistle.

“I will make them strong in the Lord, and they shall walk (go forth) in his name,” declares the Lord.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭

There is a sound, a whistle, being released that is calling the family together. It is the sound of the glory of the Lord, the sound of oneness and the sound of the Bridegroom calling to His Bride. There is a response to His whistle coming forth! It releases the sound of an army marching in unison, shoulder to shoulder (without jostling one another). It is the sound of the lovesick bride that leaves her comfort to run after the Bridegroom. And it is the beautiful sight of an unbroken covenant that releases the oil that keeps the lamps of the wise virgins burning.

Let’s pray for those who have fallen away but even more, let us join the Lord’s “whistle” that calls the redeemed to gather and multiplies the sons and daughters. Let us call to the north, the south, the east and the west— let them go, do not hold them back!

“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth–“ Isaiah 43:6

This is a time of gathering the family to march as one army; carrying the glory of the Lord. He will have dominion from sea to sea, from the rivers to the ends of the earth and His people will walk as one with Him. They will stand as ambassadors, the government of God, to bring what is decreed in heaven into the earth.

Do you hear His whistle? Join in!

Parliament Hill…Update

A team of eleven of us from different states (CA, OR, WA, MA) all gathered together for a week in Ottawa to join in with the Canadian family at the “As One” gathering.

Words cannot express adequately all that the Lord did to restore, heal, unite and bring us into a oneness that we have never experienced to this depth on a corporate level.

We watched such a powerful and beautiful joining of the generations (from the very young taking the lead to those in their 80’s and every age in between). God took us so deep in worship, prayer, joy and reconciliation. We danced with great abandonment and wept with overwhelmed hearts as God brought together relationships that had been torn apart.

Humility was the key and understanding the truth that when we are emptied and have nothing to offer but our weakness; it is then that His strength is made manifest.

It wasn’t a “marrying of ministries but rather a “marrying of family.” The oneness that Jesus prayed for right before going to the cross in John 17:21-23 became the glory that wrapped around us to do what only God could do.

As the gathering ended a double rainbow appeared over the Shaw Centre in Ottawa where we met together.

We finished our time in Ottawa by praying on Parliament Hill. We stood before the doors and announced that the One true King of Canada is upon the throne and rules over the nation with wisdom, justice and righteousness. Then we sang, All Hail King Jesus together.

From there we went to the National House of Prayer in Ottawa that we helped launch in 2005. Though we have been there many times throughout the years; this time was particularly precious as it became a full circle moment for Jeff and I as well as the NHOP leaders, Rob and Fran Parker. We spent time worshipping, praying and prophesying over one another and our nations. It was a time that we will never forget.

As we head to Washington D.C. we will carry with us all that God did in Canada to our release in our nation. As we have spent almost two decades standing on guard for Canada, which is such a great honor, we know that God is stretching our arms across both nations. We believe that the open heaven we all experienced in Ottawa will open over Washington, D.C. as well.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer and support as we continue this journey. If you would like to invest financially into this time you can go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

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

by Kathi Pelton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Important Update!

Dear Ministry Friends & Partners,

First, thank you all for standing with us, praying for us and supporting us in all that the Lord has asked us to do and the places He has asked us to go. It truly takes a “family” and you are that to us!

Our ministry and family has entered a time of great acceleration where we are seeing our young adult children sent out like arrows shot forth from our quiver. Dreams and prophetic words that we have carried for decades are suddenly coming upon us and upon our children.

God has put a deep call and longing in our hearts throughout the years to walk with the younger generation; to see them thrive in the midst of family. We live this out in our immediate family and with our spiritual sons and daughters locally, nationally and internationally.

Jeffrey and I have expanded our walk with the younger generation as we partner with the Awaken the Dawn movement (http://www.awakenthedawn.org/). This is a company and family of amazing Levite’s (musicians, prayer leaders and sold-out sons and daughters) that have given their “Yes” to the Lord to make the worth of Jesus known throughout our nation while hosting His presence in different states and cities. We are stepping in to carry the baton with them and to disciple them as they run. It is the fathers and mothers and sons and daughters running together as one family.

We will continue to be a part of our global team that is walking with many nations to see God’s family joined in the unity and oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23. We also will continue to be the young adults pastors to our “Third Watch” young adults team here in Portland, Oregon that is part of the city transformation and focusing on Portland State University’s reformation.

Lastly, we will continue to encourage the body of Christ through our writings, prophesy, teachings and books. Inscribing the vision is one of our greatest passions.

Due to all that God is opening up before us, our travel schedule has increased immensely in this season. This has also increased our need for prayer and financial partners who will commit to support us on a monthly basis.

We would like to invite you to be a part of our ministry family by becoming a financial partner with us.

We need to raise an additional $4000 per month to cover travel expenses, ministry expenses and personal expenses as we give our full focus to the work of the Kingdom.

We are now preparing to have two months of continual travel throughout North America. We will be going to Idaho, Utah, Montana, Boston, Vermont, Ottawa (Canada), Washington DC, Virginia and further between now and September. If you would like to sow into this extended trip, we would be so very grateful.

If you believe in what we are doing and would like to become a ministry partner through prayer and monthly financial support; go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

You can set up an automatic monthly payment through pressing our donation button on the homepage. You can also write to us at: admin@inscribeministries.com to let us know that you have committed to partner with us.

We commit to pray for you and your loved ones. We will host quarterly ZOOM calls with our supporters so that we truly become “family” and can pray with you.

Thank you for your love and “yes” to Jesus! He has spoken to me clearly in this season by saying that He is “Prospering His people’s, ‘YES’.” We say, “Yes!”

With Love and Gratitude, Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

It’s Transition Time! Your Segue To Something New

by Kathi Pelton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

by Kathi Pelton

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

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

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

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

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

The Great Exchange: “Change for Change” NOW IS THE HOUR!

by Kathi Pelton

In 2005 my family was living in British Columbia, Canada as directors of a house of prayer called, The War Room. As US citizens we could not receive income and the Lord had asked us to live by faith in His provision.

On one particular Sunday that year we were really in some dire straits. We were out of money with the exception of some change in the bottom of my purse. In Canada they have one and two dollar coins called “loonies and toonies” (the loonie is a one dollar coin and the toonies are the two dollar coin). I had a couple of both coins that I was holding onto for milk for our family.

During the offering that Sunday morning the Spirit asked me to give my all. I thought, “All I have is change.” But once again I heard the Lord ask me to give it all. So when the offering basket came by I put all of my change into it.

Somehow we made it through that week but still nothing came in to help us financially. The next Sunday was an unusually large crowd because our church had just hosted a large conference and many of the attendees had remained onsite to join in our Sunday service. After worship, one of the leaders stood up and said that when he woke up that morning the Lord showed him a couple that had given sacrificially of their lives to move to their nation and lead the house of prayer. He then called us forward. We were taken quite by surprise and went forward. He then placed two chairs in front of the stage and said, “I saw the Lord pouring change over them! Come and pour out the change that you have over them!” He called it a “Loonie/Toonie” offering which was what I had given the week before.

People began to come forward pouring out their coins into our laps. Then they began to give bills and checks (or cheques if you’re Canadian!). We were literally showered in change and provision. When it was done over $7000 was poured over us!!

This memory has been brought back to my mind over and over again for the past month. Whenever it comes I hear the words, “Change for Change!” My sense is that God is about to change the condition of many in “dire straits circumstances” as you give your all. I have found that often in the times where everything stands against us in the natural that we are on the verge of a supernatural intervention and breakthrough. The end is often the signal of a new beginning.

Change is coming! I see it raining gold coins from heaven but as it comes upon you it announces change! It may be a change of circumstances or a change of location, assignments, jobs/positions, etc.—but change is coming!

I see this happening not only for individuals and families but for cities, regions and nations. There is an offering that the Lord is asking His people for in all of these spheres. Whatever the offering He asks for will become the “trip wire” to release the supernatural change that needs to occur. The body of Christ is being invited into participate in an offering that will open up the winds of change!

This is the hour of transition and change for many of you! Do not hold back but give your all. Give an offering of praise, of thanksgiving and of sacrifice that is pleasing to the Lord. Be the trip wire for change!

Today is the day— angels with bags of change are posted and waiting to see who to pour out the “change” upon and the places where the “change” is to break forth! This is a heavenly currency that will manifest as a natural change upon those who enter in and over regions/nations that enter in.

Raise a HALLELUJAH! Change is about to come down!

The Veil Will Be Torn On Capitol Hill

by Kathi Pelton

This morning while I was worshipping I was taken into a powerful vision. In the vision I was kneeling in prayer at the Lincoln Memorial; looming across the National Mall to the Capitol Building. I was kneeling and weeping for our nation from the exact spot that Martin Luther King gave his “I Have A Dream” speech. As I interceded I suddenly saw the Capitol Building split down the middle but it was a veil tearing.

Suddenly what appeared in its place was the Lamb of God seated upon the mercy seat. His throne was as large as the Capitol Building had been. At His feet stood those that serve in leadership in our nation; the representatives from the house and the senate. The veil had been torn and this “house divided” was before the King of Kings and as they looked upon Him they suddenly became united by the love in His eyes and the revelation of “who He truly is!”

In this vision the veil of deception, division and separation was torn and Jesus was revealed to all who filled our Capitol Building as “The God Who We Trust In.” Mercy poured forth from His throne as they bowed in awe at the sight of Him and their eyes were open to truth.

As I saw this vision I began to weep as if it was happening even now. Faith for revival in that divided house filled me. We know that the Word says,

“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25

There has been a crumbling of the house in our nation; often revolving around the issues of family and life. This has caused many individual homes and families throughout our nation to crumble. But if revival can come to Washington DC and the sovereignty of God causes the veil to be torn, then even the enemies of God will cry out “Holy is the Lord.” Then we will be united and truly stand as the United States!

This past week, as I was in Washington DC, I experienced such an awakening of deep intercession for our nation. I literally didn’t want to leave but longed to stay and weep between the porch and the alter on behalf of our nation. Oh how I long to see Jesus receive His full inheritance in our nation. I ached to see His mercy respond to the blood that cries out in the ground with His blood that washes away our sin. I longed with such a deep travail to see our nation bow before Him as our eyes are opened to see His beauty. He is worthy!

Will we take this vision and add our faith and intercession to it? Or will we merely say, “That will never happen!”? It never will if we do not take up the cause of Christ on behalf of our nation. God is asking for those who will partner with Him and say, “Yes, I believe and will intercede!”

As I stood in David’s Tent last week in DC I could feel the longing of the Lord that it would always be full…full of believers that have been called to stand in the gap. The angels gather there and the Lord is longing for His people to gather there to partner with the heavenly host that He has sent there.

In the early 2000’s my husband and I directed a house of prayer that Patricia King had birthed called The War Room. It was an amazing place but in 2006 the Lord visited us and asked us if we would sow it into the ground as a seed that would come forth at a later time. We have longed to have the seed come up out of the ground since that time.

As I slept during my third night in Washington DC I had a dream that “war rooms” would suddenly arise out of the ground; first in DC and then multiplied throughout the nation. They were places that men and women would gather to come into the counsel chambers of heaven. Those who gathered would receive the counsel and wisdom of the Lord for the days ahead. Scrolls, blueprints and strategies would come as they gathered in His presence. Wisdom for issues that man could not find solutions for would come and change the trajectory of homes, families, cities, states and for our nation.

Can revival come to our nation’s capital? Yes it can! Speak it, let the vision burn in our hearts, call on God and stand in the gap. May His glory fill this house!
