The Immersion: A Dream

by Kathi Pelton

I had a dream last night where I was offered either a “body spray” of the Lord or a “perfume” of Him. I didn’t fully understand the terminology because it didn’t seem to fit with spiritual language; although perfume surely seemed like the logical choice. Then I watched as people came near to Him to receive an encounter, or “mist,” of His presence and power. They came near Him and enjoyed these encounters, but they didn’t seem to be lasting or transformational. I told the Lord I wanted more than a mist or spray of Him and instead chose the “perfume.”

At that point I was taken to what appeared to be a baptismal pool. I was placed in this pool, immersed in Him— in His full, undiluted presence. As I was immersed in His pure perfume, I lost myself and became one with Him. I realized that this pool was within His eye and I was the “apple of His eye”; His pupil, His focus.

This immersion was completely transformative as it took me from mere encounter to a consummation of oneness with Him. This perfume made me think of the preparation of Esther or the perfume that was poured over the feet of Jesus. The fragrance that permeated the room continued to flow from Him and now also came from me.

There is a choice; encounter or immersion; a mist or a baptism into oneness. The choice is an invitation, but the price for immersion is greater, as you must lose yourself. The gain is greater as well because you will be transformed into the fullness of Him.

Fix Your Gaze and Step Into Freedom

by Kathi Pelton

Last night a group of seven of us went to a very oppressed area of downtown Portland to do a prayer-walk (we’ve been prayer walking this area for the past six months). Though we had a very effectual night with amazing breakthrough, what our eyes had to look upon could grieve even the hardest heart. There were so many lives snared in the net of demonic oppression and addiction. Yet, as we stood on a particularly dark corner one of our team members said that the song, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, was running through his mind the whole night but the word “turn” was changed to “fix.” We all stood in the midst of the darkness (even people screaming at us) and began to sing,

Fix your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace…

As we sang, prayed and declared we watched as the things of earth grew dim. We fixed our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and the darkness was dispelled in the midst of His light. From that point on we had miraculous breakthroughs that we had been praying for over many months.

I share this testimony with you because the change and freedom came when we “fixed our gaze upon Jesus” in the midst of darkness.

“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking [Him] in His temple.” Psalm 27:4

As we fixed our gaze upon His beauty the darkness around us began to tremble. There were physical and natural happenings that we witnessed in response to the light and beauty being brought into the midst of darkness and depravity. We honestly stood in awe at what we witnessed last night because it was supernatural.

Though we shouldn’t have been surprised, honestly we were greatly shocked and surprised at the turn of events. I should know this truth well because in my personal life I strive to continually “fix my gaze” on Jesus and His beauty day and night. The sight of Him and “dwelling in His temple” has become my refuge and my fortress.

When trials or storms come, fixing my gaze upon Him becomes the place where my perspective is aligned with truth and victory. Fixing my eyes upon His beauty lifts me out of the circumstance that seek to “steal my gaze.” It lifts me from the captivity of fear into the freedom of the finished work of Christ.

If you are going through a storm and all you can see is the wind and waves, then now is the time to turn your eyes upon Jesus and fix your gaze upon His beauty. It will not only lift you above the storm but it will also calm the storm.

Often we empower storms or assignments sent against us when we fix our focus on them. The enemy seeks to steal our gaze and our light through darkness and fear. When this happens, we actually become a force that strengthens the storm rather than calms the storm. As you refocus your gaze upon Jesus it releases His power to calm the storm and moves you into freedom.

“For all creation, gazing eagerly as if with outstretched neck, is waiting and longing to see the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19

As we fixed our gaze on Jesus last night we saw creation respond. Creation was waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arrive on the scene in a place where darkness was given dominion. Though there is still much work to do, we found that as we fixed our gaze upon His beauty and released what we saw, the mountains trembled and demons began to flee. Light dispels darkness, beauty transforms depravity, love overcomes hate! This works in our personal lives as well as in our cities and nations.

If you need freedom from oppression and circumstances that have left you captive; turn your gaze! Refocus your attention and your eyes upon His beauty and watch as peace comes upon you and the storm is stilled. Your perspective will change but circumstances will shift as well.

Fix your gaze and watch freedom come!

It’s Always Darkness Before The Dawn…Breakthrough Is Coming!

By Kathi Pelton

“My soul yearns for you in the night, and in the morning my spirit searches and looks out for you” Isaiah 26:9

Are you facing a darkness that has left you without sight or light? Throughout my life I have often found that right before the dawn breaks through, the darkness will appear as though it will swallow me alive. I have also learned through those dark moments to stand on the truth that I know rather than on what I see (or in those moments…what I can’t see!).

We often throw around these little quotes such as, It’s always darkest before the dawn.” or “The end is merely signaling your new beginning.” after we’ve come through the darkness. But if you are standing in the midst of the darkest hour, I’d like to encourage you to make that place a holy place. Allow the yearning of your soul in the dark night to become the sound of surrender. Cry out to the One who is the Light of the World and in the midst of the darkness declare that you have been given a great light.

Rather than let the darkness swallow you, let the light of Christ swallow the darkness. The times in life that leave you standing in the dark can become the most holy moments as you learn to declare His faithfulness and goodness in the face of opposing circumstances. As you declare the truth of who He is and offer the worship that He is due, the darkness suddenly becomes swallowed up in victory.

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” “

O death, where is your victory? O death where is your sting?”” 1 Corinthians 15:55

What if you replace the word death with darkness? Surely darkness is swallowed up in victory when we declare His glorious goodness and light.

Some of my greatest victories have been won in my darkest hours. As I learned to allow His light to shine forth in the darkness, I was given victory over the power of darkness that was seeking to swallow me up. It is time to gain victory over the power that darkness has had over you!

I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

The dawn will come and it will illuminate the testimony of Jesus that was forged in the darkness! Just like in Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego walked in the fire and came forth victorious; so will you!

Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together and saw that the fire had not had any power over the bodies of those men. The hair of their heads was not singed, their cloaks were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them. Daniel 3:26-27

The power of darkness will not have consumed you, singed you nor harmed you because you know that the Light of the World is standing there with you. Just like the smell of fire was not found upon these three who walked in the flames, neither will despair, depression or hopelessness come upon you as you recognize that you are not alone in the darkness…for there is another standing with you and there is NO darkness in Him!

Now is the time to raise your hallelujah! Yes, right in the midst of the darkness and in the presence of your enemy. That is when you raise your voice and sing a little louder until you see the darkness flee. The power of the cross will swallow up the power of darkness!

The dawn of victory is about to rise. Let the light of the new day reveal the testimony of Jesus that is being formed in the darkness, while no one is looking. Let darkness hear the sound of your victory song and see the dance of the overcomer. Darkness can not withstand the light…so let your light shine.

This just might be your finest hour!

Another “YES” Vision

by Kathi Pelton

Today I once again saw a vision of people giving their “YES” to the Lord. For many, their “Yes” came out of their own need; such as the widow did when she gave her last coins in Luke 21. Though they had little to offer, they added their “Yes” to follow Him and to give their all.

“And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” Luke 21:1-4

In this vision I saw the Lord receive their “Yes” as if it were a coin or a “widow’s mite” offering. As it was received by the Lord, it was multiplied and prospered. It began to rain coins of provision upon the one who had said, “Yes!” All that they needed to follow Him, to be sent out and to obey His voice was released in response to their “yes offering.”

For a number of weeks now I keep hearing the words, “It is the time of the widow’s mite offering.” Each time that I hear it I see the words, “Change for change.” I sense that this is the heart that the Lord is searching for. He is looking for the ones who give their all. This is a pleasing sacrifice that will bring about a shift or change even in your natural resources.

It is the posture that declares, “He is worthy of it all!” It also declares that we trust in the Lord with all of our hearts. I don’t know what this looks like for each one of you but the Lord does. Ask Him.

There is a “Yes offering” that is being given in this hour that is breaking the ceiling that has held you down. It is releasing a prosperity that makes a way for your yes to be resourced. It will take you into all the world so that many more will give their yes.

Your “yes” is sending you out!You will be ambassadors of light and truth into a world of darkness and deception. Your yes is resounding through the atmosphere and reaching the heart of God. It is the future and hope that He has for you and for all who will be transformed by the light and truth that you are carrying.

“Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” John‬ ‭17:18-21‬ ‭

We give our “YES” to you, Lord.

Testimony Time! “God Will Order Your Steps”

by Kathi Pelton

The other day I was walking around a “beauty/make-up” store with my daughter. As she shopped I wandered around separately. As I wandered, I spotted a lady standing at the counter of their hair salon and immediately had the thought, “Ask her about their pricing.”

Though I needed my hair done, that surely wasn’t in my current budget or in my plans to do. Plus, I was happy with the hair dresser that I currently have. But I was compelled to ask the prices and for reasons unbeknown to me, I found myself making an appointment to have my hair done by her. I walked away perplexed and wondering why in the world I did that! I didn’t even tell my daughter because I was sure that I’d cancel it.

The appointment was two days away and in those two days numerous unexpected things happened that cost hundreds of dollars (including my husband dropping his contact lens only to step on it…costing $300!). I concluded that I for sure would cancel the hair appointment because now it really wasn’t in the budget! But, every time I went to cancel it I would hesitate and felt to hold off a bit longer.

Finally, yesterday was the day for the appointment. I had about 101 reasons to cancel it! They were all legitimate and good reasons. But I felt a nudge to keep moving forward on it…so I went.

Ten minutes after sitting down in the chair for the appointment the Lord showed up. This hair dresser had been raised as a Jehovah Witness and raised her children in the same religion. But something deep within her was crying out for a relationship with God and not mere religion. After her marriage had fallen apart she began to ask questions about if Jesus was truly God or merely a “god” as taught in her religious organization. She went on a deep journey to seek out truth and the true God. She was longing to walk with someone who had the answers that she was seeking.

Then God had me sit down in her chair to get my hair done. For the next three hours what we shared went so deep. While she worked on my hair she kept a tissue box nearby as the tears poured down her face. It was a divine appointment…not because I had to have my hair done but because the God of mercy and grace heard the cry of this woman who was longing desperately for Him. She found who her heart was longing for! We will now begin meeting together regularly.

The reason that I’m sharing this testimony is to remind you to pay attention to those seemingly “random” thoughts that you have that go against your plans but order your steps into divine appointments. I hadn’t planned to go to that store with my daughter that day but at the last minute decided to go just to be with her. I hadn’t planned to make a hair appointment, especially from a stranger and at a place that I knew nothing about. I hadn’t planned to keep this “random” appointment because it made no sense financially (especially with two days of non-stop unexpected large expenses coming upon us)…but my feet were compelled to walk out steps that I had not planned.

If I had given into “reason” or my thoughts I would have missed this and though God would have found another way to reach her, I wouldn’t have had the honor of being the one to watch her encounter the love of God and hear His truth.

I am always so grateful for those who obeyed the Lord when they shared the love of God with me when I first came to know Him. I’m sure that “I” was not a part of their plans! But, as believers, we commit our plans to the Lord and ask Him to order our steps. And…He does! We must be willing to follow that nudge in directions we hadn’t planned and as we do we end up right where He needs us to be.

“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9

You may be the answer to someone else’s prayers. Your steps may not make practical sense of even financial sense but listen to that still small voice that judges you to “just keep walking” and watch what He will do.

Divine appointments await you so make your plans but yield the ordering of His steps!

God is Intermingling the Old and the New

by Kathi Pelton

The uncompromising message that I heard as a young believer that taught foundational truths, holiness, and freedom from sin and death has often been lost in the desire to let the world know that we walk in love. Yet, no one had to water down the truth that brought conviction of sin when I came to know the Lord. Sin was devastating my life, and the love found within the message of freedom from sin and a God who would die to redeem me from it was greater love than I had ever imagined possible!

Somehow many have concluded that any message that brings real conviction or exposes sin is not love. Yet, there is more love than we can imagine in the message of an invitation into freedom. The truth that the wages of sin are death and hell is now a politically incorrect message, yet it is the truth that Jesus died for; the one that saved my life and the lives of countless men and women.

The teaching of universalism is that there is ultimately no hell, no final judgement for any individual. There are those who tell us that it is unloving to proclaim the truth that rejecting Christ’s payment for sin will result in eternal separation from God. Such ideas have the appearance of kindness, but they are merely a recipe for watered-down Christianity.

Hell is real, but it was not designed for men; instead, it was meant for Satan and his demon army. Jesus made a way, through His death on the cross, for every man and woman to be redeemed, because He paid the price for our sin. We have the opportunity to receive the free gift of salvation and righteousness before our God. It is amazing that God has not forced His love upon us, but has given us free will to accept it or to reject it. Love offers a choice; not a compromised choice, but real freedom to chose.

When I was a new believer I understood these important truths, but unfortunately there were not a lot of true “fathers and mothers” who would come alongside us new sons and daughters in order to nurture us. Many of us who had chosen Christ and received the gift of eternal life still struggled with deeply wounded souls. I was one who carried scars from my childhood and from the many bad choices I had made that brought great harm to my young life.

Though I had experienced the amazing love of God during my salvation experience, rigid “Do no sin!” messages—apart from the healing of my soul to replace the orphan spirit I carried—merely reinforced an unhealthy demand to perform and set me up for failure.

We are seeing a wonderful shift in this season, and messages of love, healing, intimacy, our true identity in Christ, loving family, and generations walking together are now nurturing new converts and healing wounded souls. However, this does not negate the need for us to understand our hopelessness outside of Christ. We must understand the message of holiness and healing found in Jesus.

What I see happening in the Spirit is an intermingling of the message of uncompromising holiness, true conviction of sin, and Jesus redeeming men from the penalty of sin (which is death and hell) with the message of intimacy, family, sonship, identity, grace and His “reckless love.” It’s “not either/or” but “both/and.”

Either message without the other brings about unbalanced living. One demands holiness apart from healing, and the other creates compromise that makes people “feel good”; but they are being comforted within the constraints of their captivity. We need both! We need holiness and we need healing, we need uncompromising truth and unconditional love, we need to displace the enemy and then fill that place with the true identity that God created men to live in.

There is an intermingling of holiness and healing! There is an intermingling of conviction of sin and healing of hearts! There is an intermingling of uncompromising truth and intimacy! And there is an intermingling of foundational teachings and His reckless love that creates true disciples that know they are sons and daughters.

This will release light to those caught in darkness. It is the message the world longs to hear and the balm that souls need to receive. It is new wine poured into new wine skins. One without the other causes the wine skins to burst and the wine to be wasted.

Let us enter into a yielded life that allows the Spirit of the Lord to intermingle the fullness of all the aspects and characteristics of God within our lives. May a bride who is both holy and healed emerge in this hour!

God is About to Send Fire Down Upon Your Offering. He Will Prove that He Alone is God!

by Kathi Pelton

The Holy Spirit has been drawing my attention to the story in 1 Kings 18, when Elijah and Ahab and the prophets of Baal had their showdown.

As you recall, Jezebel had been killing the prophets of God and supporting the prophets of Baal and Asherah. When Elijah shows up to meet with King Ahab, Ahab accuses him of making trouble in Israel but Elijah declared that it was the king and his family that had made trouble for the nation by turning away from God to worship Baal.

Elijah then tells Ahab to call the prophets of Baal and Asherah to be gathered (along with the worshippers of these idols). There were 450 prophet of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah and one prophet of the true God, Elijah. Elijah instructed the prophets of Baal and Asherah to build an altar of wood and place a cut up bull upon it and then to call to their gods to send fire to consume their offering. From morning to evening they called, shouted, danced and ritualistically cut themselves to summon their god. Fire never fell.

Then Elijah built an altar of stone and wood. He then placed the cut up bull upon it. Then the altar was drenched with water; even a trench was dug around it and water filled it. Then He called upon the One true God.

“At the usual time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.” Immediately the fire of the LORD flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench! And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “The LORD —he is God! Yes, the LORD is God!””

‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭18:36-39‬ ‭

I felt to remind you of this story because many of you are facing impossible circumstances and yet you have not turned away from the One true God. You have seen the lives of prophets taken, you have watched the evil one try to kill the word of the Lord that you have been standing on and you have watched your countrymen turn to serve idols and false gods.

Today you stand like Elijah before your drenched offering, knowing that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the true God. Those against you outnumber those who are for you but God is on your side and He is about to send fire upon your offering.

I hear you praying the words of Elijah that say,

“…Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”

This showdown is not merely for your breakthrough but it is the kindness of God that brings those who have turned to false gods back to the One who loves them and gave His life for them. It is for you, for God and for those who have been lost.

The spirit of Elijah is upon the Church and we are about to see the fire of God fall upon the impossibilities and upon nations! Many will turn to God as they see Him prove that He alone is God.

Declare that the spirit of Elijah will fall in a greater measure upon our sacrifice. Believe that God’s true and pure fire will fall. Declare that those who worship and serve idols (false gods) will turn back to God. The spirit of Elijah defeats every spirit of deception when God’s fire falls and reveals Him as the One true God.

This is the hour that the glory will return! The glory train is arriving and a shout that calls “All aboard” is heard throughout the nations. Those who carry the spirit of Elijah will board this train and be carriers of His fire and glory. They will call back that which belongs to God! The whistle has sounded and it is the time of glory and fire to go forth with light and power.

We call upon the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! Prove that we have done all these things at your command. O LORD, answer us. Answer us so the people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.

Abundant Rain, Super Bloom and Butterflies! Signs of a New Day!

by Kathi Pelton

Our family line has been in California for many generations but a few years ago the Lord asked us to leave the state and move to Oregon. We return for visits with our extended family often and this week was one of those visits. As we drove though the state the normally brown hills were now vibrant green; unlike we’d seen in many years. It was like a visual shout announcing, “The drought is over and abundant life has come and kissed our land.”

As we continued to drive we began to take notice of the amazing wildflowers (poppies, mustard, etc) in bloom throughout the vineyards and upon the rolling hills. Sunshine and rain clouds cast amazing light and shadows down on the land. I was looking at a physical manifestation upon the land that only happens when years of drought receive the downpour of an abundance of rain.

Then the Spirit said, “This is a picture in the natural of what My people will soon look like to all who see them.”

There has been a long spiritual drought for the body of Christ; no differently then the “Golden State” has experienced. But the abundance of rain has come and Spring is appearing upon the lives of His people.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

This abundance of rain upon a land that has experienced years of drought has caused what is being called a “super-bloom” in California, with hundreds of thousands of orange poppies carpeting the hills and meadows. The abundance of rain has caused plants to thrive, giving the “painted lady” caterpillars plenty of food to fuel their transformation (metamorphosis) into millions of orange and black butterflies taking flight. One butterfly enthusiast in California said that these butterflies seem very purposeful and undistracted in their migration flight pattern. They are quite directional! She was quoted saying,

“They’re in a hurry, like the rabbit in ‘Alice in Wonderland,’” she said. “They have a very important date.”

This is such a picture of the sense that I am getting from many prophetic voices right now. There is clarity in direction and it is like we are hurrying toward a very important time and destination.

California is a natural sign of a spiritual change of conditions and seasons. Not only for the state itself but for the state of the body of Christ. We have gone through a long metamorphosis from a place of crawling to a state of taking flight. Like the butterflies emerging from the fields of orange poppies, so is the church emerging from a time of drought and crawling into a time of flight and thriving. They are be drawn to the time of harvest where the super bloom of souls, healings, miracles and a great outpouring will occur.

It is interesting to note that the orange poppies (which are California’s state flower) and orange butterflies are being highlighted in this natural scene. Orange is the color of fire and there so many prophetic voices talking about the fire of God coming upon the church. Amber is the color that represents the Glory of God.

We also know that California has been experiencing a few years of extreme fires that brought so much destruction but now the land is displaying the glory of God after the purifying fires. Once again we see this state revealing a prophetic picture of the Church which has gone through extreme refining and now is beginning to see a display of the Glory of God resting upon it.

What a beautiful and exciting time we are entering into. One of my friends and I keep saying that we feel like Alice (from Alice in Wonderland); we have gone down the rabbit hole and don’t want to go back! It is becoming a “wonder-land” where awe and wonder will be seen by all. His glory will clothe the church with splendor and beauty and His fire will bring forth the manifestation of signs and wonders by the millions!

An Invitation Into The Deep

by Kathi Pelton

“Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me.” Psalm‬ ‭42:7‬ ‭

The sons and daughters of God have been invited to be taken into the deep places that will cleanse and purify our hearts. It is a deep purging of everything that has kept us from His perfect love, His truth and His ways. It is a baptism with cleansing water and a fire that refines. A way is being made into the deep places of God’s heart but the way requires that light must expose all darkness and fire falls upon the human heart.

These deep waters are answering the prayers that have come before the Lord that have cried out the words of David from Psalm 51:10-12

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”

We are in a Psalm 51 kairos moment in time where the deep longing to be holy as He is holy is resting upon us. The longing of God and the longing of His remnant have converged with a kiss of oneness. There is a convergence with the deep groaning (intercession) of Jesus, the groaning of creation and the groaning of mankind to be reconciled to His original intent and His perfect love.

This is why there is a roar coming from the Lion of Judah that releases the sound of restoration. This roar is bringing us into the depths of perfect love that cleanses us (His bride) and is releasing the fire that purifies. We long to be a bride without spot or wrinkle and suddenly we are more aware than ever of our spots and wrinkles. In the grip of this awareness and awakening, repentance becomes such a beautiful gift. Repentance draws us deeper and take us higher; it breaks down the barriers that keep us bound to the shame of sin and stains.

Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool. Isaiah 1:18

There are moments that “the deep” feels as if it might swallow us up or drown us but it is actually taking us higher. It is making a way for the motives of the heart to be made pure so that we can walk in oneness with Christ and oneness (unity) with the body.

He is calling out your name and inviting you into the deep places. It is an invitation into the depth, heights and widths of His perfect (agape) love. His perfect love brings water that cleanses and fire that purifies; making us whiter than snow.

Say yes to His call to come deeper!

Keys, Mysteries and Purification

by Kathi Pelton

At the beginning of the year the Lord told me that 2019 would be a “Year of Demarcation.” I knew that February would be a significant month that highlighted moments of demarcation. Beginning 2/12 to 2/22 there was a significant shift, moving the body of Christ into a greater authority that will expose things hidden in darkness, bring forth light, open and close doors, and see both mercy and judgement released.

There are three Scriptures that the Spirit of the Lord highlighted to me. All three of the verse references have the numbers 222 within them.

They are Isaiah 22:22, Daniel 2:22 and Revelation2:22. Let’s look at them and then begin to unpack them a bit.

“I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.” ‭Isaiah‬ ‭22:22‬ ‭

“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.” Daniel‬ ‭2:22‬ ‭

“So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.” Revelation‬ ‭2:22‬ ‭

In Isaiah 22:22 we see a key of authority given that can open and shut doors. We have entered a time of possessing the keys of authority to shut doors that the enemy has held open to bring about demonic laws, agendas, deceptions, defilements, and darkness; these doors will begin to close through the power of prayer and the authority of Jesus Christ given to the church. The word “Holiness” will be written upon these keys.

The authority that comes to those who will follow His ways and walk in His truths (not adding or subtracting from His Word) will receive keys of authority such as Jesus had when He walked on earth.

“To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, To them I will give authority over all the nations. They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star!” Revelation‬ ‭2:26-28‬

“They will have the same authority…” Incredible!

Daniel 2:22 is upon us as God is revealing deep and hidden things: both truths and deceptions. He is using the most unlikely men and women to bring this about! In the midst of deep darkness His light will be revealed. The enemy’s “underbelly” will be exposed; shields that have protected and hidden satanic strongholds will suddenly be removed, allowing the light to penetrate the darkness. The enemy will be found vulnerable and exposed in many ways and arenas.

Lastly, Revelation 2:22 deals with the spirit of Jezebel. In this chapter the Church of Thyatira is rebuked for “tolerating that woman- Jezebel.” Verse 22 not only brings judgement upon this spirit of deception and defilement, but it calls those who have joined with her into repentance or they will also be judged.

This is a time that we are seeing this spirit exposed (judged) and “those who have joined with with her” given a chance to repent. It is very sobering because it says that those who do not repent will suffer greatly. How merciful it is of our God to offer a time of repentance. This is His mercy because He does not desire to bring judgement.

The end result of this purification, exposure of darkness, and closing doors will be the return of “Holiness unto the Lord” upon His bride.

We will see righteousness, mercy, light, purity, truth, integrity, and the fear of the Lord come upon the church, and this will result in great authority that replaces the kingdom of darkness and deception with the Kingdom of light and of truth.

This is a time of demarcation that is removing the filthy garments from God’s priests as we see in Zechariah 3. We pray for mercy to triumph over judgement and for the fear of the Lord and holiness unto the Lord to come upon His bride.
