Time To Be Set Ablaze

Kathi Pelton

During a night of worship last night a young woman began to share about seeing the fire in God’s eyes coming to ignite us and she heard the words, “You are highly flammable!”

As she shared this God took me into a vision of His people wearing “fire retardant (resistant) clothing”. I then heard Him say,

“Tell My people not to be afraid to be set on fire! Tear off the garments of restraint that have resisted the fire of My love, My refinement and My purity. Let My all consuming fire come without restraint or resistance.”

We the prophetically gathered together in the center of the room and began to tear off the garments that had resisted His all consuming fire. We yielded every part of our lives to Him; surrendering the fears and restraints.

Are you still wearing some spiritual fire resistant garments that have been rooted in control, fear or kept you from full surrender? If so, tear off the restraints and surrender all. Yield to the fire in His eyes and to the flame of His love. He says, “You are highly flammable so do not wear restraints and do not resist becoming one of My burning ones!”

Set us on fire! Holy fire!

New Year’s Day 2019: Crossing into the Promised Land

Kathi Pelton

On the morning of January 1st, 2019, I awoke and looked at my phone to see the time. It was 4:44 a.m. When I saw this something quickened in my spirit and I knew I needed to pray and pay attention to what the Lord desired to say.

The number four Biblically represents a demarcation point in creation; the fourth day the sun, moon, and stars were created, separating day from night and providing light for both. There are also four separate seasons in a year providing a demarcation of changes throughout each year. The fourth commandment is to rest and honor the Sabbath, which is a demarcation in time each week where we go from active work to focused rest.

This new year (2019) is a demarcation year that signals a time and season shift or change. It is also a year that God will reveal great light in the day and great light in the night (darkness). His light comes from the place of His perfect love and perfect love cast out fear. Fear of darkness will be met by the light of His perfect love and that love will cast our fears that have gripped the hearts of so many.

Immediately upon waking on 1/1/2019 at 4:44 I went to my Bible and opened it. As I did the Spirit asked me to look down and read the page that I had opened to. These are the first words that I read in 2019,

“Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach (captivity/slavery) of Egypt from you.” So the place has been called Gilgal to this day. On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. The day after the Passover, that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land: unleavened bread and roasted grain. The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but that year they ate the produce of Canaan.” Joshua‬ ‭5:9-12‬ ‭

In the Hebrew language, Gilgal means circle and stone. We see the “reproach of Egypt (captivity)” rolled away just as the stone was rolled away from the tomb of Jesus when He was resurrected. Light suddenly emerged out of darkness; both the darkness of captivity and the darkness of the tomb. Both events are “demarcation” moments that changed history by rolling away a stone.

Joshua 5:9-12 also speak of leaving a fort-year time of wilderness living, where the Israelites survived on daily manna for their provision rather than the fruits and harvest of the Promised Land. Suddenly manna was no longer needed and the Israelites enjoyed their first meal from the crops of Canaan.

This marked the end of the time of manna, stagnation, and wilderness survival; they were moving into the land of their inheritance. Though there were many enemies occupying their land, as they kept the Lord’s commands and instructions they would overthrow the enemies in order to possess and occupy their promise.

I truly believe that this is a picture of the time that we have now entered. We have crossed over and are having our hearts circumcised. The time of being idle has come to a close and the reproach of captivity is suddenly rolled away. We are getting our first tastes of the riches of Canaan.

The body of Christ is being asked to walk forward as one people; one family that follows all of the Lord’s commands and instructions. In doing this we will conquer enemies, tear down strongholds, and occupy lands of long-awaited promises.

The rewards and victories ahead are remarkable and yet we must be sober to the truth that the penalty for not following His ways and instructions will be costly. We must walk as one army, as one family, without jostling for position or moving according to the flesh. This is why it is imperative to allow the circumcision of our hearts to take place as we enter this new season. The old must pass away and we must all ascend the mountain of the Lord together to meet God face-to-face. There, we will receive wisdom and instructions of how to proceed while coming daily into intimacy and nurturing His presence.

“Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” So the LORD said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”” Exodus‬ ‭33:15-17‬ ‭

As we meet with God and follow His instructions, our enemies will be struck with fear as they see the miracles and victories that the Lord will do through His people.

I conclude with a number of Scripture verses that the Lord has highlighted to me for this time and season. I encourage you to read them, pray into them, and carry them with you in your heart and mind.

“Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.’” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭

• “I am the LORD your God: Walk in My statutes, keep My judgments, and do them;” Ezekiel‬ ‭20:19‬ ‭

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

“For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him— then the LORD will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand against you; the LORD your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to you.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭11:22-25‬ ‭

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John‬ ‭1:5-9‬

Take time to meditate on these verses. His word is the lamp that lights the way of our paths ahead. Let us hold fast to His written and spoken words as we move forward to possess the land.

Wrestling Until God Wins

Kathi Pelton

Many are experiencing a type of spiritual warfare and wrestle as we finish 2018 and prepare to enter 2019. It may feel like an overwhelming sense of failure, regrets, condemnation, fear, or other issues that cause your soul to feel separated from the unconditional love of God. Some believers are wrestling with a sense of great spiritual hunger that leaves them craving deeper realms of God, requiring further surrender and yielding to the Spirit in ways that feel unfamiliar and uncertain.

Whatever feelings might accompany the wrestle, be assured that the wrestle is worth the reward! It may cause pain–it may even cause confusion–but as you wrestle down the defenses in your soul that have become barriers to the deeper experience of oneness with Christ, it will be the best fight you will ever lose!

When Christ is forged and formed in you, He will overthrow other things have occupied you, taking up space within your life and your heart. Often these things are so familiar and comforting that they cause blind spots in our lives, until circumstances crash us against the shores of false beliefs. We don’t see the dark places until we enter into the wrestle to see Jesus formed in us.

The enemy does not want greater surrender or refinement in our lives because he knows that the more yielded we are to Jesus, the more light we will reveal that will dispel darkness.

2019 will be a doorway into occupying land for the Kingdom of God. The Spirit of the Lord is preparing many by occupying further territory in His people’s lives. This requires us to war against strongholds that the enemy has held in our lives. To wrestle these places down we must face the fears that have fortified these strongholds. We must battle down false securities, idols, and comforts that we’ve carried like a child’s security blanket. We are being asked to leave behind childish things so that the enemy has no place in us as we are sent to take back lives and land for the Kingdom.

The ways of the Holy One are upside-down and backwards to the ways of man or the ways of human reasoning. Therefore when we begin to enter the ways of God, we can experience a type of spiritual and emotional vertigo. This vertigo can cause us to try to regain balance through old ways and by relying on strongholds that have caused us to feel in control. It is vital that we begin to be still and allow the Spirit to reorient us to the atmosphere He creates.

This is not a time to back down or to run ahead, but rather to wrestle down the “flight” mode of the discomforts that accompany change and transformation. This is a time of fight, not flight. Fight for stillness, fight for surrender, fight for yieldedness, and fight to see Christ formed in you!

“To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.” Colossians‬ ‭1:27-29‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Christmas Blessing

On that bright night, so long ago in Bethlehem, the Savior of the world came to us in the form of a tiny baby. He was born to a young Jewish girl who began the high honor of being the mother of the long awaited Messiah with the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

Her words of surrender made a way for the ultimate surrender; His life. His existence on earth began with her surrender and ended with his surrender.

Today, we honor the legacy of Mary by continuing a posture of surrendering our all to the One who gave His all for us. His “all” ushered us into freedom from sin, death and captivity. Our surrender allows us to enter into the fullness of that freedom.

What a joy to be grafted into the bloodline of that baby who changed the world at the moment of his conception as his young, virgin mother spoke the words that now rest on our lips,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

The stars that shone so bright on that night still light up our darkness and announce that a Savior has been born unto us. The angels that witnessed the birth of our Messiah still today sing,

“Glory to God in the highest, and peace, goodwill to man.”

Let us join in with their song and give our lives as an offering to Him. Let us bring the very thing that He came and died for…you and me.

How can we say thank you for this gift that cost His all? By holding nothing back! If there is anything that has been held back in your life or heart today go and lay it at His feet. He takes every offering and breathes life and salvation upon them. Every offering becomes blessed when surrendered to Jesus.

I bless you this Christmas with my prayers that you will have courage and grace to offer your all. It is the gift He paid for and that will come back upon you abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine.

Merry Christmas and Glory to God in the Highest…peace and goodwill upon you and your household!

With Love~ Kathi Pelton and the entire Pelton Family

Light and New Beginnings

The Striking of the Match of Revival

Kathi Pelton

For a number of years now God has been speaking to His people out of Isaiah 43:19,

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”

The threshold into “a new thing”, more often than not, is a longer earthly time period then we expect. It involves preparation, purification and perseverance to fully move into the new. The new thing begins in individual hearts that willingly go through reformation and transformation. Then those lives spill out the overflow causing a corporate remnant to carry the same heart of unity and agreement.

When this happens the sounds we hear begin to change to a new sound that has never been heard before, the desires of His yielded ones change and align with the desires of the Lord, the language changes releasing words that shift atmospheres and invite others in and lastly; hearts change! The change of heart is a softening, a surrender and a purification from flesh to spirit.

The past few years have been the preparation individually and corporately so that we may know how to embrace the new thing without being held back by old things. The old isn’t necessarily negative but it would be if brought into the new. Just as a single old piece of fruit will spoil an entire basket of new fruit harvested or the mixing of old into new wine will spoil the whole batch so it is with the “new thing” that the Lord is doing.

We must be taught how to walk in it and keep it pure. I believe that 2019 will begin to open up the way to walk in the new way. It will not be the fullness but rather the beginning. It will be a year of revelation and instructions that bring about the manifestation of a “new move” that has never been seen before. It will be like the lighting of a match that sets seasoned wood aflame. It will catch afire and spread upon all that it touches that has been “seasoned” through the time of preparation. It will touch drought filled lives that thirst for what is real and pure causing them to burn with holy fire.

I hear the words in my spirit from Isaiah 30:21 that say,

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

God is bringing wisdom, blueprints and instructions of how to walk in the new way. As doors open and the “seasoned ones” that have been set aflame move through those doors they will understand how to walk in a new way that keeps the way pure.

Even as we have seen the horrific fires throughout California over the past couple of years, this is merely a destructive counterfeit of the pure fire that brings life, harvest and great joy to all that it touches. As the natural conditions in California were ripe for wildfires that have destroyed so are the spiritual conditions ripe for that which will redeem and transform. The church in California will be a spiritual match for the whole nation (and nations) in the days and years to come.

Do not fear or be dismayed by the natural conditions of your city, state, nation or even of your current life situations because God is about to strike the enemy down and strike the match of revival that brings forth great victories.

December is a striking of the matches of new beginnings. Just as we’ve now entered into the Hanukkah season where eight matches are struck over eight nights (eight is the number of new beginnings), this month will usher us into a time of great light in the midst of darkness and the restoration of the temple. This will be a time of taking back lands and the things that were stolen. It will be a time of revival fire and abundant rain.

“Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.” Hoses 6:3

“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Joel 2:23

Revival fires and the latter rain are coming upon us!

You Are Not Alone In The Battle!

Kathi Pelton

There is a reality that we must grasp as those who have given their lives to the King of Kings…we are in a continuous battle! The problem occurs when the battle becomes our focus rather than the King. That battle is the real battle!

The enemy is always plotting ways to draw our focus and our affections away from the One who holds us in the arms of grace and perfect love; desiring to cause our focus to be upon the darkness rather than the light. We are children of the Light and within the light of His promises, His victory and His perfect love we will find peace and rest in the midst of the battles. Yes, the battles are real but the victories are already established in the finished work of the cross.

You may be facing battles that have touched your family, your body, your resources, your mind and your emotions but know this…YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THE BATTLE! Not only are you not alone but the reality is that the battle is not yours but it belongs to the Lord.

Have you taken ownership of the battles that are before you? If so, give them back to the Lord. He has victory in His hand and rest for you that will refresh you and bring you victory.

Refocus your gaze and affections on the Lover of your soul…Jesus! Not only are you not alone in your battle but the King desires to take your battle upon Himself. As you focus your affections and attention upon Him, He will bring you rest. Praise Him for who He is! Praise Him for the beauty of His holiness, the brilliance of His light and the perfection of His love. These are the only weapons you need in the battle and the Lord will do the rest.

You cannot fight these battle in the strength of man but rather they are won in the position of surrender. Not surrender to the enemy but surrender to the Lord. He will bare His mighty arm on your behalf and His strength will defeat the enemies that have surrounded you. It is in the place of our weaknesses that we see His strength made manifest, but we first must embrace the place of “boasting in our weakness” (acknowledging our weakness) so that He can be shown strong.

Remember the words that the Lord spoke to Jehoshaphat,

“…The LORD says this to you: ‘Be not afraid or dismayed at this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles 20:15‬(b)

Jehoshaphat’s response to the Lord’s promise was to fall on his face and worship. Of a matter of fact, all the inhabitants of Jerusalem did the same thing. They bowed to worship the Lord.

The next morning they went out to face their enemy and this is what happened,

“When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the LORD and those who praised Him in their holy (priestly) attire, as they went out before the army and said, “Praise and give thanks to the LORD, for His mercy and lovingkindness endure forever.” When they began singing and praising, the LORD set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were struck down [in defeat].” 2 Chronicles‬ ‭20:21-22‬

Lift up your voice and praise the Lord for His mercy and lovingkindness! Praise Him as you go out today to face your enemy. Do not focus on the enemy but on the Lord! Do not fear, do not be dismayed…worship and watch God strike the enemy down in utter defeat!

You are not alone but you must surrender the battle to the Lord, who will set an ambush against the enemy and bring him down in “utter defeat!”

WORSHIP! His mercy and lovingkindness is never failing and never ending. Victory is in the hand of your King. You are not alone but the Warrior King has gone before you with victory.

It’s Time To Receive Abundant Life

Kathi Pelton

Those who know me well know that 10:10 are special numbers to me. A few years back the Lord spoke them over my husband and I when we moved to Oregon. They represent a couple of different things to us but mostly the wonderful verse in John 10:10,

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”

We had gone through a number of years that it felt like all that we were experiencing was the thief (we were robbed, our house burned, deaths, accusations…you name it!). Then, suddenly life returned and it returned with an abundance of peace, joy and love. It was a 10:10 moment that has carried on with abundance in our hearts since that time.

When I saw today’s date (10/01) I saw a vision of a sudden “turnaround” for many of you that have faced a long season of experiencing the “thief”. The “01” turned around and became a “10” and before my eyes were the numbers 10/10 illuminating with light in a celebratory display.

You shall have life, enjoy life and it will overflow with abundance! As you have chosen Jesus through the dark season that had been filled with trials, now you will receive His promise of life and all of His benefits with great fullness and abundance.

Declare the overflow! It is yours to take! Declare the abundance! It is His to give to you! Declare the fullness! It is His portion for you! And declare double restoration!!! Because that is who He is!

Instead of your shame you will have a double portion; And instead of humiliation your people will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore in their land they will possess double; Everlasting joy will be theirs.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭61:7

Your abundant harvest is upon you!

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.
