God Is For You!!

May 23.2019– Kathi Pelton

• When everything seems against you… “I am for you.”

• When the odds are stacked against you… “I will tip the scales in your favor.”

• When you feel alone and without help… “I am with you to help you.”

• When you have no answers… “I will give you wisdom & miracles.”

• When you cannot find your way… “I will carry you and comfort you.”

• When you feel too weak to carry on… “I will be the strength that you need.”

• When you face the impossible… “Remember—I make all things possible!”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans‬ ‭8:28-31‬ ‭

The Rooster is Announcing the Dawning of a New Day

by Kathi Pelton

On August 2, 2007 I had an article published on The Elijah List called “The Roosters Are Crowing, “It’s A New Day!” (http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word.html?ID=5541).This word was birthed out of a time where our family was recovering from losing our home in a fire just months earlier. A Mennonite couple from Pennsylvania felt led of the Spirit to go on a treasure hunt with God to buy our family a prophetic gift. What they were led to buy for us was a beautifully crafted ceramic rooster to signal a “new day is dawning”.

Now, twelve years later, I am once again being reminded again and again of that rooster. It started a few weeks back when some friends and I was doing a “treasure hunt” for property. We were waking the grounds of a magnificent estate that is for sale and on one of the patios was a life size statue of a rooster. To say that it was out of place for this setting would be an understatement! But the “out of place” caused it to stand out to us! Immediately I remembered my prophetic gift from 2007 that said that beauty would come forth from our ashes and a rooster announced “the dawning of a new day.”

Since that day a couple weeks ago I have been seeing roosters everywhere! I hear the sound of their early morning crowing deep in my spirit which is awakening the dawn of a new day and awakening hope!

Yesterday I wrote a word about barn revivals and barn raisings that will occur in the days ahead. As I released that word I saw in my spirit a weather vane on the top of a barn. This weather vane had a rooster on it and was spinning around and around because the wind of the spirit was coming from every direction. It was like a holy whirlwind that was touching these barns. Then last night I was watching a news station that was tracking a tornado that had touched down in Ford County, Kansas. The storm chasers who were following it kept reporting how it was coming upon barns and only touching the barns. As I was watching this unfold before my eyes I once again began to see in my spirit the weather vane with the rooster on top of the barn that was spinning from the wind that was coming from every direction. It was a sign in the natural of what will come and touch barns…only the wind of the Spirit will restore and not destroy.

God often speaks to me through visions (I’m a seer), the natural visual things and through natural events that declare spiritual truths. In this season I am seeing barns, roosters, fire, wind and the dawning of a new day. These are not separate but rather they converge together to paint a picture of what the Lord is about to do.

I believe that this is a prophetic sign for America! Just as we were sent a prophetic gift of a rooster twelve years ago; God is sending the church a prophetic sign and gift of a rooster that announces a new day…a day where revival will come upon communities as we return to our grass roots of gathering together on homesteads (in barns). We will see unity come from sharing life together, sharing meals together and raising barns together. Family, community and gathering in love will cause the Spirit’s fire to fall and the wind to blow. Homesteads will host the presence of God and become portals of miracles, signs and wonders.

This is a time to restore those old barns, build new barns and gather in barns because it is a new day! The stalls will be full again, the vats will overflow, the grain will be plentiful and we will rejoice!

“Consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month. Since the day that the foundation of the Lord ‘s temple was laid, consider: Is the seed yet in the barn? Indeed, the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree have yielded nothing. But from this day on I will bless you.”” Haggai‬ ‭2:18-19‬ ‭

Where the barns have been empty and desolate, they now will be full! Where there had been no seed, now there will be an abundance of grain! Where there has been to yield from the land and from the work of your hands, now there will be more than enough. “From this day on I will bless you!” (On a side note and sign; my husband and I were married on the 24th day of the ninth month… Gregorian calendar not Jewish calendar).

Though I believe that this is specifically a word for America, I also see it touching other nations. Canada, Australia, Argentina, Japan, Scotland, Mexico, Brazil…and many other nations will hear the crow of the rooster to announce a new day that brings them into harvest and blessings.

The rooster is crowing…”It’s a new day!”

Were You Born In A Barn? In The Days Ahead Many Will Answer, “Yes I Was!”

by Kathi Pelton

For the past few weeks I have become aware of something that is happening even now regarding “a barn revival”, some are calling the worship and prayer times in these barns, “a barn burn.”

In my hometown of Santa Rosa, California many in the church would meet in a beautiful local barn to worship and pray and listen to voices such as Heidi Baker and Georgian Banov. As a matter of fact, my daughter, Amy and her husband, Luke were married on this property and their wedding reception was held in that very barn. But in 2017 a firestorm hit the region and the entire property, including this barn was burned. It was a great loss.

Since that time, every time I talk about this event and say that the barn burned I then begin to hear the verse from Isaiah 61:3,

“…to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”

I’ve sensed that there would be a beautiful restoration that would come from the ashes of even this one barn that became ashes. Beauty will rise from the ashes of devastation in many lives, cities and nations. A barn raising will happen and the fire of God will fall, bringing great restoration!

Then, I began to see visions of people telling other people, “I was born in a barn!” I realized that they were speaking of being “born again” in a barn. Just as our Savior was born in a barn and laid in a manger, many will come from afar, like the wisemen who followed the star, to find the Savior of the world in a barn once again. They will be born in a barn because they did not find “room in the Inn (church).”

I believe that there will be barns all across America that will release the sound of worship, the sound of prayer and the sound of the revelation of the good news. Light will come forth from these barns like a star in the sky that leads many to find Jesus there. Both the saved and unsaved will come. Those whose lives have been in ashes will come; the hopeless, the weary, the sick and the lost will come and as they hear the sound they will see their Savior. Beauty and salvation will come forth from the ashes and the fire of the Holy One will come like a second Pentecost upon all who gather.

The name of the Lord will be heard throughout the land and those who would never step into a church will come to these barns because of the light and the sound. They will find healing for their weary souls and they will leave these barns like young calves set free from the stalls.

“But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture.” Malachi 4:2

Many will be born in these barns! We will even see the church gather to raise barns once again. Unity will come even from the times of preparing barns and community will be formed around these barns. John 17:21 is where we read Jesus’ prayer for us to be one in the same way that the Father, Son and Spirit are one and these barns will become a place of oneness! They will be like a womb where many are birthed and new life comes forth.

There will be barns on fire but they will burn with the fire of God that lights up the sky and calls many home. The harvest will be gathered in the barns and the angels will gather to sing, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace and goodwill toward mankind.”

You Will Tremble As You See The Goodness Of The Lord Come Upon The Desolate Places

by Kathi Pelton

When we think of trembling we usually think of fear or a cold chill. It is rarely spoken in the context of something good. But there is a trembling that happens in moments of awe and wonder. It catches you off guard causing you to collapse in joyful tears under the weight of such goodness.

We see this kind of trembling when a young child sees their daddy for the first time after a long military tour or when two lovers who have been separated by a great distance are finally able to embrace. We see this when a mother holds her newborn baby or the first time that the daughter that my husband and I fought to adopt was finally placed in our arms. It is a trembling that comes from the awe of a long awaited desire fulfilled.

“And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of all the good that I do for them. They shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity I provide for it.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33:9‬ ‭

Though this verse is speaking of the restoration of Jerusalem; as I awoke this morning the Lord gave it to me for His Bride…you! The Lord is about to show you His faithfulness in such a way that it will leave you trembling in awe. The display and manifestation of His goodness and prosperity upon your life will also cause your enemies to fear and tremble as they see all the plans they sent against you crumble before the goodness of God.

Though you’ve felt like a barren and desolate city, soon you will watch as the faithful goodness of the Lord overtakes all that stood against you; causing you to prosper with shouts of great joy! This will be the sound that comes forth from your life,

“…the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voices of those who sing, as they bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord: ‘Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!’ For I will restore the fortunes of the land as at first, says the Lord.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33:11‬ ‭

This was His promise for the holy city of Jerusalem and it is His promise over you. He is good and He is your Restorer. Now is the time to shout His goodness over your desolate area! Shout it over the barren wombs, bad reports and those who are sick. Shout it over every waste place. Shout to that place of dread in the pit of your stomach. Fill your lack with shouts of, “The Lord is good!”

His promises are true and they are sure! Therefore, you can begin to release the voice of gladness be heard even now. The enemy has been shouting with a voice of dread, hopelessness and accusation for far too long. His voice comes and sucks the air out of the room and out of your lungs because it is the voice of lies and darkness. Break all agreements with that voice because it only comes to kill, steal and destroy.

It is time to raise the voice of the redeemed. Let the sound of those who have been given abundant life go into the atmosphere and into the land. Let us shout,

“Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”

Watch as a trembling of awe and wonder returns to His Church! This tremble will cause mountains to fall and desolate places to blossom with goodness and prosperity.

Watch As The Chaos Sent Against You Suddenly Becomes A Wave Of Destiny

by Kathi Pelton

I was taken into a vision this morning where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos and distraction sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it caught them off guard.

I’m from Northern California where the coastline is known for what are called, “sneaker waves”. These are very large and powerful waves that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline. These sneaker waves a known for pulling a swimmer or a person walking on the shore out into the turbulent sea.

This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It is as if you were swimming in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him upon shores of grace and suddenly you are caught by a sneaker wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the sea.

In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos of this sneaker wave struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person who was drowning. As I saw this I saw the Lord with them and heard Him speak these words,

“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”

When someone is drowning, the worst thing that they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax into full dependency upon the one who has come to save them the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.

The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. The fear has been blinding you from seeing Him but know this; He is there to rescue and save you.

The vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They began to relax into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to the shore. Yet it was not the shore that they began on but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny.

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us then had the attack not come. This is happening for many right now. We know from scripture that when the enemy comes…like a flood the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

Years ago the Lord told me to be aware that the demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. He and his army fall into absolute chaos and confusion…and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven!

If you have been caught by a spiritual “sneaker wave”that has pulled you into its grip, threatening to pull you under and drown you, then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the shore of destiny where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

Ask and You Shall Receive

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.Matthew 7:7

We are hearing reports from believers all over the world that are suddenly receiving answers to prayers they’ve prayed and are suddenly seeing doors open that they have been knocking on.

There is an acceleration in the spirit that is moving lives forward with great momentum. Though the wait has been long, the spiritual muscles of faith and prayers have been built up! It is as if the body of Christ has been like an runner preparing for the the biggest race of their lives. The training had been long and it has been brutal but it’s also been effective. The gun signaling the beginning of the race has gone off and the race has begun.

If you are still waiting then don’t stop asking and don’t stop knocking! I declare the following words over you today…

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

He will do it and He is faithful. The dawn is breaking to announce the new day!

“MAYDAY, MAYDAY!!”

by Kathi Pelton

On May 1, 2002 my very first word was published on The Elijah List. This word was a “breaker-word” for our lives and ministry. As I awoke this morning, May 1, 2019 the Spirit reminded me of it and said, “Kathi, this is a full circle moment and that word is for now once again.”

Here is the word…a then and now word!

MAYDAY! MAYDAY!” May 1, 2002

On April 30 the Lord told me to pay attention to May Day which was May 1st. I watched and listened all that day but nothing significant seemed to happen.

—————————

THE SHIP, TOSSED VIOLENTLY

—————————

Then last night I was taken into a vision in the middle of the night to a ship that was being tossed violently upon a very turbulent sea. It was very dark and the fog bank was so thick that you could not see a foot in front of you. As I was taken closer to the ship I could see that it had been storm tossed for some time now.

This ship was lost at sea. There was no way for the crew to find its way back to where it had come and yet it couldn’t see ahead to know where it was going. It seemed to be at the mercy of the storm which looked as though it would never end.

Nothing was secure upon this ship, everything was being tossed into the sea except the crew. Then I was taken into the ship where I saw one of the crew on the communications radio saying over and over, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!” I heard no response.

———————————–

THE LORD WAS ASKING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE DISTRESS CALL

———————————–

At this point I came out of the vision and realized that the Lord wasn’t asking me to pay attention to “May Day” (The date, May 1st) but He was asking me to pay attention to the distress call, “Mayday, mayday!”

I asked the Lord what this meant and He told me that many lives and ministries had recently been in the middle of a storm. Their vision had been blocked and their lives and plans tossed upon the rough sea. They had used up every means of self effort to find their way back to safety but the storm and lack of vision had left them lost at sea.

The Lord said that He has heard our distress calls. He has heard our call to Him, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!”

—————————-

RESCUE HOST IS ON THEIR WAY

—————————-

Though we do not yet see it, a rescue host is on their way. God has commissioned a great rescue host to come to us with all the provision to get us to safe harbor. This harbor will not be where we started because we can not go back there but it will be a new place, with new ships, new cargo, new crew members, new scenery, new life.

It was necessary to have everything tossed into the sea in order for the “New Order” to come. We have new orders and this host will bring to each one of us those orders. We have new passages that we have not known about but these will also be revealed to us.

We will have new vision, clearer vision.

We have new provisions that are on there way, provisions that we have not known of because they are not coming by “our efforts” but by His grace and help.

Our distress call has been heard…help is on the way.

Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of man plans his ways but the Lord orders his steps.”

Your Persistent Prayers Will Open the Door of Breakthrough

by Kathi Pelton

The other day we were blessed by having a team from YWAM (Youth With a Mission) come to our home to pray and prophesy over us as we face many transitions. During this precious time we put our daughter’s dog out on our deck. She was not a happy dog to be kept away from all of the excitement so she began scratching at our glass door. She scratched and scratched and scratched.

Her scratching began to become like the sound of fingernails going down a chalkboard. She was persistently pleading with her paws,

“Open the door, open the door, OPEN THE DOOR!”

I began to feel myself getting annoyed with her. I was about to get up to open the door to answer her persistent request when I suddenly heard the Holy Spirit speak to me,

“This puppy is like the story of the persistent widow who came before the unjust judge. Her persistence finally wore Him down and he granted her request. Persistent prayer will open the door for you.”

The story of the persistent widow goes like this,

Luke 18:1-8

Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’

“He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’”

Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?”

God is just, He is full of love and He WILL “stick up for you” against injustices. Though your trials may seem to drag on, your faith and persistent prayers are creating an atmosphere that bruises the enemy. Your prayers are not being ignored but they are doing a deep work in your life and character while shifting the atmosphere around your life as well.

I began to see our glass door, that was being scratched upon, as the enemy’s head. Our dog would not be dissuaded by the door that blocked her from her desire. Like the persistent widow, whose requests were like bruises upon this judge, so are our continual prayers bruising the enemy.

I hear the Spirit saying,

“The door will be opened for you!”

God is not ignoring you or deaf to your prayers but knows the perfect time to open the door for you. Though it feels like you’ve been left out in the cold (without your desired answer), suddenly and at the appointed time the door will open and you will enter with great joy.

Do not stop praying. Do not stop knocking at the door before you and do not believe the lie that God is ignoring your request. You are scratching, bruising and tearing down the lie that “God is not faithful” and defeating the persistent enemy that taunts His sons and daughters with accusations of being orphans. Abandonment is not possible for the sons and daughters of God. He will never leave nor forsake you! You will see the faithfulness of God come to your aid.

I will finish with the truth and encouragement from Romans 5:1-5,

“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”

You are being changed through your persistence and patience. You will never be the same and when the door opens you will walk through it as a different person…as the person He created you to be.

He dearly loves us!

It’s Time To Be Awakened!

by Kathi Pelton

For the past month I have been having the Lord take me back to the memories, the songs, the stories and the beauty of when I first knew came to know Jesus as my Savior. It truly was a “first love” encounter; I was experiencing such excitement, hope, joy and I was being overwhelmed with awe as I experienced new life.

I remember often saying to myself and those around me in those early days of knowing Jesus that I was sure that God was “cheating for me!” I would say that because He was continually rescuing me from my own lack of understanding, lack of knowledge and lack of wisdom. It was like having a jealous lover nearby all the time who would not let me go astray but pursued me day and night with such a lavishing of His love. His love overwhelmed me and caused me want to pursue Him with the same intensity that He was pursuing me with.

The gospel was such good news to me and I couldn’t get enough of it. The simplicity of His grace and the depths of His love that saved me was my breath and my song. The week that I fully gave my life to the Lord was the same week that I met my husband. During that first year of walking with Jesus I was in the midst of a double portion of “first love.” Everything was new and every day was marked by the excitement of newly discovered love.

It’s been 36 years since that time and there have been seasons where that love became too familiar to me; with both the Lord and my amazing husband. In those times I have chosen love and chosen covenant but felt far from the place of “first love.” Dreaming became more difficult and my “yes” to God became more of a default answer than a passion to pursue Him more.

If we are not careful, time can produce a sort of lethargy that numbs passion and weakens love. We can become familiar with the sound of His voice and lose the way that it once took our breath away. We can become familiar with His presence to the point that the awe of “God with us” is lost. But there are depths and mysteries yet to be discovered in His love.

During this past month I have sensed an awakening happening. It is as if the prince has arrived to kiss Sleeping Beauty and awaken her to first love once again. I sense the kiss of God coming upon His Bride that will break the spell of slumber and the dullness of familiarity off of her so that she becomes alive and in love once again.

I have had many moments over the past few weeks that I feel the excitement of first love the way I did when I was an 18 year old new believer. The simplicity of His grace and wonder of His love feels so near; almost like I’ve come full circle back to the place that I once began. I have a sense that I will be saying to myself (and many of you will be saying to yourselves), “God is cheating for me!” For He will once again surprise you with what He does and how He moves on your behalf.

We will stand in awe of His pursuit and we will not be able to hold back from telling others about the One that we love and how well He loves us. He will overwhelm you with how He moves and how He causes your “Yes” to be from a place of deep desire rather than daunting duty.

One of my friends and I keep saying to each other (since mid-February) that we feel like Alice in Wonderland…we’ve gone down the rabbit hole and find ourselves living in a continuous journey of “awe and wonder” once again. Of course there are still trials that we face and days of difficulties but they are continually being overcome by “signs and wonders” that we aren’t even looking for.

There are themes that we will see emerging in these days such as first love, awe, awakening, full circle, signs and wonders and convergences. This awakening will be a renewal; a renewal of love, of youthfulness, of passion and of strength.

Isaiah 40 has stood out to me and the end of it is part of this awakening,

“He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah‬ ‭40:29-31‬ ‭

It is time to run again! It is time to receive first love’s kiss that will awaken you to an “all things new” season. What joy we will feel once again!
