The Emergence of the Nameless and Faceless Generation

by Kathi Pelton

In February 1989 my husband and I were a part of the pastoral team at a northern California Vineyard church. That month a prophet by the name of Paul Cain released a word at the Anaheim Vineyard; a prophecy that became known as the vision of the “nameless and faceless generation.” It deeply impacted and shaped many of us in the Vineyard movement. We began to pray and declare that our sons and daughters would be that generation.

Here is how Paul Cain describes the vision he had exactly thirty years ago,

“In February 1989, at the Anaheim Vineyard during a conference, I prophesied a time when athletic stadiums and arenas would be filled with God’s people preaching the gospel and healing the sick in extraordinary fashion. In my vision I saw ambulances bringing in the worst medical cases, the local hospitals being emptied to deliver their patients to these events, and the dead (dead people!) being raised by an army of nameless and faceless Christians releasing a wave of miraculous healings and conversions. This vision encompassed multiple venues over an extended period and spoke of God’s glory being released in an unprecedented manner and on a scale that had not been witnessed before. In short, this work was not the result of men; this was the work of the Father himself!

In my vision, the international media were reporting the amazing events as they took place. This was the news of the day: every channel, every station, and every nation. This was not an isolated Christian event, the kind that is well known and publicized in the Christian community, yet even the immediate neighbours of the event have no clue what is happening inside; rather, this was a series of events that would affect the world and the communities around the stadiums and arenas.” (Paul Cain)

Last month, on February 12, 2019,exactly thirty years to the month after Paul released this revelation, he passed away. The Lord had told me to pay attention on February 12 & 13 because it would be a “demarcation mark in time.”

When I woke up on the 13th and read that Paul had passed away during the night hours, I knew that a new day was dawning on earth.

Since that day I have been pondering the vision of the nameless and faceless generation that we all carried so close to our hearts from 1989 onward. I believe that Paul’s passing was a marker that signals the unveiling of this generation.

A few nights ago we were out to dinner with some dear friends. The Lord had been so present in our conversations, and we were surprised when it unexpectedly began to snow outside (this is not common this time of year in the Portland, Oregon area). Within minutes the ground was covered with a white blanket. As this happened I began to share with our friends about the “nameless and faceless generation,” and as I did the Lord took me into an encounter where I saw a thirty-year assignment against identity that the enemy sent when Paul Cain’s vision was released.

I was taken into a brief but profound vision where I saw a white haired man (Paul Cain) speaking forth the vision, and as he did the enemy grabbed hold of it in terror and sent orders to bring about a demonic demonstration of a “nameless and faceless generation” by bringing such deception and confusion about their identity that they wouldn’t even know their gender. He would use fatherlessness, the media, Hollywood, the education system, and every means possible to release confusion in the lives of the younger generation so that the pure and holy vision would be snatched away. The enemy has relentlessly unfolded his plan for identity confusion over the past thirty years. I recently had a thirty-year-old tell me that she identified as “Z.” When I asked her what that meant she said, “It means nothing. I have no identity!”

Then the Lord said to me,

“Kathi, if my people will gather together and begin to decree over the earth the true identity of this generation that is loved by their heavenly Father, then they will be redeemed. Call for the nameless and faceless generation to emerge with purity and holiness unto the Lord. Surround and support them as mothers and fathers until they come into such oneness with Me that My name and face is all that is seen.”

It is time for the Abraham, Issac, and Jacob generations to be joined as one generation that will carry the bold courage and spirit of Joshua and Caleb. I believe that this nameless and faceless generation will bring forth life from death! God will send fire upon their sacrifice and it will show all the world that He alone is God! It will displace the idols of Baal and the false prophets of the secular world that have deceived our children and brought great confusion resulting in lost identity.

It is now time for us to gather and call forth God’s plans and purposes for this time and this generation. This thirty-year-old prophesy is for now and is being made new. The old and new, the young and old, the ancient paths and the future paths are converging for the sake of the pure emerging. The fear of the Lord will be the standard and the longing for holiness is even now resting upon many individuals. Heart motives are being purified, restoring first love and a desire for Jesus’ name to be heard and His face to be seen.

It is time!

The Beauty of Tears Offered As Praise

Kathi Pelton

Last night my husband and I sat with four young people that we love deeply. A couple of them were experiencing profound pain, so we put aside the night’s “agenda” and we sat with them, held their hands, held them and then all six of us began to weep together. We wept with deep intercession and tender love. Jesus was so present there weeping with us.

Then the young man began began to offer his pain as praise declaring, “You are worthy of my praise in the midst of pain.” His tears became drops of worship like the costly perfume offered over the feet of Jesus by Mary. The pain in the room was so real but the praise offered in the midst of the pain released a sweet aroma that filled the room with His presence and beauty.

We were all undone as we entered into the hope and the offering of praise in the face of pain.

Romans 12:15 says,

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”

We have become well-acquainted with both weeping and rejoicing with the ones that we love. We know that pain lasts a night but “joy comes in the morning.” Sometimes the nights are long but surely morning will come and then together we will rejoice.

All too often we are quick to try to “cheer someone up” rather than merely sit with them while they let their tears flow. What if we stopped and wept with them with no answers or words? If we would do this we would probably experience what we witnessed last night: a time where in the midst of pain the alabaster jar is broken and the costly perfume of praise that was formed in the pain is poured out upon His feet. Each one of us entered into the weeping and then received the anointing of the perfume that was released.

The words, “Nothing is wasted, nothing is wasted…” were whispered through the tears and I want you to know: your pain is not wasted, your tears aren’t falling upon the ground but rather upon His feet. Not one is wasted.

Jesus wept!

He weeps with you and turns the tears and pain offered as praise into an oil that anoints His feet and fills the atmosphere with the sweetest and most costly fragrance. Because the offering out of pain is far more costly.

For those who are in a “night of weeping”—let it flow out until it intermingles with His presence where it will becomes a sacrifice of praise that fills the room. It is so beautiful.

“Make Me Holy!” The Deep Cry Coming From His Sons and Daughters

Kathi Pelton

There is such a deep work that the Holy Spirit is doing in lives at this time. I have honestly never felt an absolute longing to be “holy as He is Holy.”

1 Peter‬ ‭1:15-16‬ ‭says,

“But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.””

I feel emptied of “me” in so many ways. Everywhere I go I talk to believers that are experiencing the same thing. It is a desperation to be one with Him; to be purified from anything that has exulted itself above Him or diminishes His beauty and faithfulness from being displayed in any way.

This is not a work that can be done in the flesh or even a desire that can burn within us apart from the fire of the Holy Spirit igniting it. It merely requires a willingness to yield to the work of the Spirit who searches our hearts.

There is a yearning from deep within many of His sons and daughters that cries out the words from Psalm 139:23-24

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Do not fret over the sense of being emptied or become overwhelmed by the experience of deep calling out to deep. You are not alone in this process. Our souls are being purified for the sake of living as Jesus lived; to only do the will of His Father.

Invite His fire to come upon you and give Him permission to purify your heart. The end result will be “oneness with Christ” and “being holy as He is holy.” He is worthy of it all and worthy of us all.

“Jesus, have your inheritance in our lives and in all the nations.”

You Are Fully Known and Still Fully Loved

Kathi Pelton

As I awoke this morning I began hearing the words over and over in my mind and my spirit, “You are fully known and fully loved.”

There is nothing hidden from our God and yet as we stand before Him we can feel no shame; because we know that we are fully and completely loved. In our nakedness we stand before our Father clothed in the righteousness of His Son. As we become aware of the depths of our weakness we are then empowered by His strength. And as we admit our ignorance of knowing what to do or how to get there, we are given supernatural wisdom and understanding that makes us look brilliant. For it is in the place and posture of humble surrender that He exalts us.

We live in an upside down world that is in direct contrast to the Kingdom of God. In this world you are quickly judged based on physical appearance, worldly wisdom, possessions, talents, power and influence. Yet even within the people who possess these amazing traits they have one core and vital need, “To be known and to be loved.”

God looks upon what He has made in you and says, “It is good.” He knows who’s image you bear and the beauty that has been placed within you. When God asks you to let Him search your heart it is because you are known and you are loved. Because He honors you He is always searching out what might keep you from the fullness of His plans for you and His love for you. He’s a Father that desires the best for you not a detective seeking to expose you.

I love that I am fully known by Him. I love that there is nothing hidden and nothing too hard for Him. I love that every challenging place for me is an opportunity for His power to move within me. I love that every weak place within me has become the very place that I will see His power manifest. And I love that as I depend upon Him, He gives me wisdom that makes me look brilliant. Most of all…I love that I am fully loved by Him.

We are rich because we are fully known and fully loved. No earthly treasure can compare to this and it is the one thing that cannot be stolen. Some may be deceived into believing that if they are known by God that they will not be loved but it does not change that truth that says, “Nothing can separate us from the love of God.” Not even being known!

As I rest in this truth it stirs within me a deep hunger to know Him more fully. The revelation of who He is and the mysteries of His ways, His true nature and His Kingdom will always be a daily gift offered to us to unwrap. The more I know Him the more I know how greatly I am loved and how thoroughly I am known…and I am unashamed.

He is my goal and my prize. He is my true north and my first love. To know Him more each day is to love Him more everyday. The more that I embrace that I am fully known and still fully loved allows me to be restored to His original intent for my life. It takes me back to the garden where, like Adam and Eve, i can stand naked and yet feel no shame.

In our new book, The Yielding: A Lifestyle of Surrender, I share a story from a time many years ago when I use to go into the bathroom and close the door to hide from life, people and God. As a child I would hide behind a locked bathroom door to escape the rage of my father and the chaos within our home. In that place I did not let anyone in; even God. Many years later, on a particular day, the Lord asked me to leave the door open and let Him come in. An absolute miracle happened that day where I became aware that I was fully known and still fully loved. Allowing myself to be known, even in the weakest places, made a place that allowed me to be loved.

Today our beautiful Father wants you to know that you are fully known and fully loved by Him. He is inviting you into knowing Him more fully. As you accept His invitation you will fall even more in love with Him.

Oh what a Savior, oh what a friend…isn’t He wonderful!

God Is Singing Over You

Kathi Pelton

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with one line from the song “Reckless Love” repeating again and again in my mind,

“Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me- You have been so, so good to me”

As I heard these words I was taken in the spirit to the place of my infancy and I saw God singing over me. He was singing of His love for me, His desire for me, His plans for me. Though I knew nothing of Him still He was singing over me. Then I was taken to a time before I asked Him into my life and He was there once again, singing over me; singing intercession and singing the words of how He saw me.

Then I heard the words, “I waited for you to cue the music.” As these words were spoken I saw the moment that I surrendered my life to Him as the cue or “queue” to begin to manifest in my life all the words that He had sung over me before I had ever spoken a word to Him. To cue the music is to signal it to begin but to “queue” the music is to “line up” the music, such as we do when we create a playlist on our phones (that is to queue up the music). When I surrendered to Jesus I “queued up” or lined up with the truth of His songs over my life.

Each moment of surrender to His will, His Word, His desires queues the songs that He sings over my life…songs of deliverance— songs of desire— songs of healing— songs of promise— songs of unfailing love. It becomes my life’s playlist and the songs become my reality.

I often awake with songs playing in my mind that I know the Spirit has placed there but I truly never looked at it as “God singing over me.” I more thought of it as a message or a revelation that needed to be unpacked. But He sings over me and He sings over you. Before you ever spoke a word to Him He was singing over you. Your “yes” queues the music to become your story and your reality. Your surrender becomes the landing strip for the songs He sings over you to come to fruition.

The first words I ever heard God say to me (and they were sung) were the words, “I see no stain upon you.” I was 16 years old and didn’t know God and my life was truly “stained by the world” and by an overwhelming sense of worthlessness— I was drunk and alone but the words stopped me in my tracks and breathed hope into my young and broken heart, “I see no stain upon you.” The words stayed with me for two years when finally my brokenness yielded to my surrender and I queued the music to become my reality.

God waits for your cue and then your queue, all the while He continues to sing over you. His song is the invitation and your surrender is the cue to the music to begin to become your reality. Ask Him to open your ears to the words of the songs He sings over you— then respond. Just maybe those songs that get stuck in your head are interpreting the song that He is singing over you?

I encourage you to “cue the music.” and to “queue to music.”

Christmas Has Come Early

This new book by Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton is a great gift for for friends and family as we approach December. Order now and give as gifts before December 1st.

There truly is a “reason for the season,” and it has nothing to do with gifts, reindeer, shopping, or chocolate (well, maybe chocolate). But it is easy for us to forget that transcendent purpose as we find ourselves caught up in the materialistic maelstrom that is the modern cultural event known as Christmas. As the end of the year approaches, instead of experiencing an invitation into deeper devotion and wonder and excitement, we find ourselves wondering when, exactly, we seem to have swallowed a lump of coal. If you have ever considered changing your name to Ebenezer for the month of December, then this is for you. Join Jeffrey and Kathi Pelton as they walk through the weeks leading to the Big Day in a winsome and encouraging journey of devotion and discovery, fueled by the lyrics of songs you know–or at least, think you know.

Order through Amazon Books or if you would like a signed copy send a donation of $25 to our ministry with a note attached saying, “Sound of Christmas- signed copy”

Time to Get Wonderfully Wrecked

Kathi Pelton

Do you know how very much your Heavenly Father loves you? It would wonderfully wreck you if you understood how much. So, I pray for you to be wrecked in the most wonderful and glorious way today…wrecked by the revelation and experience of His love for you.

Last night I sat alone with Him and just let His love hold me, wash over me and wreck me in the most wonderful way. His love toward me even exceeded my longings and love for my own children (which seem immeasurable) and at the same time fully encompasses my love for them. There was no separation; His love permeated all that I love. I didn’t have to do anything or say anything…I merely had to stop long enough to let Him be my “Daddy”.

I became absolutely aware that He didn’t care about my flaws or my imperfections; He just adored me for who I am. He wanted me to know how much He loved me and how safe it is to be vulnerable with Him.

That is how He feels about you…He adores you! He desires to draw you into the safety of His care, the bounty of His provisions, the beauty of the garden of His never failing love.

There are moments where God just wants you to receive. He doesn’t want you to do anything but allow Him to be your father. He wants to relieve you from the weights that you’ve been carrying that can begin to produce works, performance and put heavy burdens upon you. His grace and love will draw you back into the place of sonship; relieving you from the old and all too familiar place where orphans fend for themselves and “work” for acceptance.

We were created for dependency upon someone bigger and stronger than we are. We are sons and daughters…no longer orphans or those who have been forsaken. We are loved beyond measure and cherished beyond imagination.

May you be wonderfully wrecked by His love today. May your offering today be to receive; let Him love you, let Him wreck you and let Him adore you in the way that He longs to do.

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1)

You Are Not Alone

Kathi Pelton

I hear the Lord calling out to those who feel alone in the battle, alone in your pain or alone in a place of solitude. He is saying,

“You are not alone!”

The words are a call from the Father to awaken you to the awareness His constant presence. It is the cry that comes from the intercession of Jesus that is going forth on your behalf day and night. It is the groaning of the Spirit who yearns for you to receive the true revelation of the One who will never leave nor forsake you.

He is saying once again,

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:6‬

This is your truth:‭

• He goes before you in the battle; securing the field and assuring your victory.

• He never slumbers or sleeps but is constant in His care for you.

• He is not unaware of what you need but mindful of every prayer even before you have prayed it.

• He sends forth angels as messengers to you and help for you in all of your ways (to keep your feet from stumbling).

• He is with you to comfort you, protect you and provide for all that you need.

• He is with you to heal you, deliver you from your enemies, and set you in a secure place.

• He is ever-present, forever faithful, and has unending and limitless love for you.

“God settles the lonely in a home (family); he leads out the prisoners to prosperity (joy & singing)…” Psalm 68:6

Whether you need a place to call home, a people to call family, or you need to be set free from captivity and despair, He is there with you to accomplish what He has promised. Ask Him; for “it is written”—therefore you have legal ground in the spirit to apply your faith to this promise and know that your answer is assured.

If you are facing a battle, know that you are not alone. Remain calm, hold onto the peace that surpasses human understanding, and be still in His love.

“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:14

He is the one who will part the sea that stands before you and destroy the vast army that is at your back. Just as He did in the days of Moses, He will do it once again! He is the same; yesterday, today, and forever.

For every need He has the answer and for every lack He has provision. Can you hear Him calling to you? He is saying,

“You are not alone!”

Has the Enemy Announced “Fake News” About You? God Is Announcing the Truth of Who You Are!

Kathi Pelton

The Spirit spoke to me today about the issue of “fake news”. He said that the enemy has been sending out demons to speak lies about who you are and what your future holds. But God is sending forth angels that carry His words of truth that will cancel and revoke the “fake news” that was sent to discourage and disarm you.

The truth is that you were created in the very image of Christ and you carry His beauty, His purity, His righteousness, His authority, His presence, His wisdom, His counsel, His faithfulness and His glory within you. That cannot be separated from those who have received Him into their lives. You lack no good thing and this is your truth and He is your true identity.

Though the enemy has come with fake news and bad reports about who you are and who He is to you, the Lord stands before that enemy and rebukes him on your behalf. Like in Zechariah 3, when the Lord rebukes the enemy who is accusing Joshua the High Priest, He is doing this for you. He is taking away the accusations…for even the accusations that the enemy has proof against you of are covered in the blood of Jesus that paid the price for all of your sin. The truth is that you are innocent and free from guilt and the captivity that held you.

I hear the Lord saying to Satan once again,

“…I, the Lord, reject your accusations, Satan. Yes, the Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you. This man is like a burning stick that has been snatched from the fire.””

‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭

I stand with the Lord and declare that all bad reports and fake news against your life is officially exposed as a lie and published before heaven and earth as such. The truth now sets you free! You are clothed anew and the good news that is written in His Word…every promise…belongs to you.

The enemy has been exposed as a liar and all the accusations sent against you are now sent back upon him and his army. There is great rejoicing in heaven because you are free and it is His truth that has set you free. You are now set free from shame, free from the lies that cause you to hate yourself…for YOU WERE CREATED IN HIS IMAGE! You will love yourself and therefore you will love others in a way that you never dreamed possible. You will love the Lord with ALL of your heart and you will carry His glory everywhere you go. When you see you, you will now see Him!

I heard a prophetic song this morning that had a line in it that said these words, “When they see you they will see Me.”

The fake news was to shroud the image of Christ that you carry everywhere you go and to everyone you see. But His truth and His good news is now setting you free!

I declare over you and over me, “The truth has set us free!”

I see Christ in you and I see Christ in me…and He is beautiful, glorious and faithful to all who call upon His name.

Come on! Shout for joy because you have been set free.
