THIS IS OUR 20/20 CLEAR VISION MOMENT!

By Kathi Pelton

As I have been spending time with the Lord this morning I was shown a vision of this “quarantine time” but in it I was in an optometrist office receiving an eye exam and being fitted for lenses that would bring my vision back to 20/20.

Many prophetic voices prophesied words about 20/20 vision coming in 2020. I recently came across a post from a man who was mocking those words and saying that this pandemic has proven the prophetic voices wrong. Well, I don’t know about you but for me personally this has been a time of seeing the state of my body, soul and spirit with greater clarity then ever before! The Spirit has been searching my life and my heart and giving me 20/20 vision to see what was formerly blurred by all the busyness and clutter in my soul.

I have never seen the finished work of the cross as clearly as I do right now. The power of His blood is bringing forth a personal reformation that is washing away everything that has usurped the true source of life and liberty. Much of what I saw were “good things” but not what I needed— for they were blocking my view of Him. It was like looking upon the wardrobe of someone you love but not truly seeing the person or the owner of the garments. My life was like a closet, stuffed full of His garments and yet little room for Him!

For me, it’s been like a fog has lifted (a veil has torn) and I can see again. Now I can partner with Him and yield to the work of His Spirit within me to bring me into greater “oneness with Christ.” Isn’t that the last thing that Jesus prayed before going to the cross?

“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 ‭17:21‬ ‭

How can we be one with one another if we are not first and foremost “one with God?” How will the world know if we are not—“in Him?” The verse above says, “…And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”

We have read these words thousands of times; prayed them, preached them and prophesied them! But until this time I do not know if we could “see” the way into oneness because we have been so divided in our own hearts and lives by the “things of Him” rather than Him alone. This “Selah” has stopped the speed of life that was blurring the very things we claim to hold dear.

If you are driving in a speeding vehicle everything that you pass by is blurred due to the speed you are moving at. But if you stop the vehicle and get out you can view your surroundings with clear focus and finally see the little details you missed at high speed. Often those details will include “the little foxes that spoil the vineyard.”

“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” Song of Songs‬ ‭2:15‬

We are in a spiritual “early Spring.” The grapevines of our love are blossoming and this pause or Selah has stopped us so that we see clearly and can “catch the little foxes” that seek to ruin the vineyard. If you run after a fox it will run away and most likely outrun you; but if you stop and are very still you can trap that fox and remove it from the vineyard of your life.

It is also very difficult to nurture love on the run! You must stop and get face to face and heart to heart with the one you love. The seeds of love grow underground in the hidden place where “soil and seed” are joined. It takes stillness, time, patience and watering to yield the fruit within. The same is true with our relationship with God and with people. I love the convergences of ministries but I long for the oneness of hearts even more. But first I must nurture my love with Christ.

I believe that the “20/20 vision in 2020” prophetic words may be the most accurate words ever prophesied into a new year. Did we expect it to come in this way— NO! But isn’t that usually the case with the prophetic? We hear what He plans to do but we rarely know how He will do it. His ways are not our ways nor His thoughts our thoughts! And honestly, if we knew beforehand the details of “how” we’d probably try to orchestrate and control it and mess it up. What a wise Father we have!

One of the words the Lord spoke to me regarding 2020 was the word, “Jubilee.” A Jubilee Year is a time when all debts are forgiven. In the midst of what appears to be an unprecedented global economic crisis this word, “Jubilee” surely seems to be a major miss! Or is it?

For me personally, I feel like my soul is receiving an emotional and spiritual jubilee! The deeper revelation of the finished work of the cross that paid every debt is bringing me into a jubilee season like never before. I knew this truth before but it is becoming a deeper experiential reality that is not only catching the little foxes but it is causing me to become “one with Him.” I pray that this Jubilee will touch our economy as well but I am so overjoyed that it is first touching my soul and your soul.

So. YES— 2020 is a year of 20/20 vision. You must get still and allow our Great Optometrist, Jesus Christ, to examine you and give you new lenses. It’s time to see!

Jericho Walls Will Fall During This National Day of Prayer— We Will Recover!

By Kathi Pelton

“Now the gates of Jericho were tightly shut because the people were afraid of the Israelites. No one was allowed to go out or in.” Joshua‬ ‭6:1‬

No one was allowed to go in or out. Does that sound familiar? There was fear in Jericho because of what God had done through the Israelites as they crossed over!

Many prophetic voices prophesied that the beginning of 2020 was a spiritual crossover into the “Promised Land.” For my family it surely was as we crossed our nation from the West Coast to move to the East (the Washington DC region).

Whether or not there was a physical move for you; still, in the spirit, there was a great crossover into a new era and time.

After some time and purification in the new land (circumcision), the Israelites were ready to begin to take back the land! What God has done for them was already known throughout the land and it struck fear into the heart of those who would resist them. I believe that the crossover (spiritually and physically) has struck fear into the enemy’s camp and he has ordered the gates of his fortified places to be locked; for there is great fear in his camp. He knows that God is with His people and they are coming to take the city!

This day, we are in a time that fear has caused men and women to go in and shut their doors. Public places are closed (Disney parks, all of the Smithsonian Museums in DC, sports arenas, etc.); no one is going in or out! A virus of fear has gone global— but today a nation has been called to prayer. Is this our Jericho moment? Our seventh day miracle?

As I went to read the Word this morning my Bible flipped open to Joshua 6 and my eyes fell upon the first verse,

“Now the gates of Jericho were tightly shut because the people were afraid of the Israelites. No one was allowed to go out or in.”

As I read the words I heard, “Blow the trumpets and let My people shout because I am giving you the land!” I don’t know if the “walls” are the virus or the “stronghold of possession” that the enemy has had on land that belongs to God’s remnant; but in any case, something that has held land and has occupied that land is about to fall.

I believe that this very day that has been set aside for prayer in America (in the midst of a 40-day global fast) is a day for some fortified walls to fall! Though this day has been set aside as a day of prayer for the United States of America, I believe that it’s a trumpet call that all nations are invited into.

We are in the 15th day of the Jesus Fast (15 of 40) and it is the 15th day of March. Coincidence? I doubt it! We are marching around the walls of Jericho and they are about to fall! The number 15 represents deliverance and rest. Another interesting fact about the number 15 is that in 2 Kings 20, when Hezekiah became “deathly ill”, he prayed and God added 15 years to his life. What if God is adding 15 years of grace to our nations? What if He is extending time to see harvest and revival take place?

I am not prophesying, I am merely pondering and praying. I am looking around and surveying the spiritual and natural surroundings. I am painting a picture of what my spiritual eyes are seeing unfold.

Today, the 15th of March, which is a National Day of Prayer, may just be a day of fortified walls falling, a day of deliverance, a day of healing, a day of grace extended and days added!

I hear the Lord inviting the nations into this National Day of Prayer. The United States is often a trumpet and a prophetic voice to the nations and that may be the case once again. President Trump has released a trumpet call for prayer to bring healing and deliverance from this deadly illness called Coronavirus.

Hezekiah’s prayer went like this,

“Remember, O Lord, how I have always been faithful to you and have served you single-mindedly, always doing what pleases you.” Then he broke down and wept bitterly. 2 Kings‬ ‭20:3‬

This was God’s response,

“Go back to Hezekiah, the leader of my people. Tell him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your ancestor David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you, and three days from now you will get out of bed and go to the Temple of the Lord. I will add fifteen years to your life, and I will rescue you and this city from the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my own honor and for the sake of my servant David.’” 2 Kings‬ ‭20:5-6‬ ‭

God, defend our nation and the nations of the world for your honor and for the sake of your servants!

We will possess the land! We will recover! We will see God honored! We will be delivered and receive His rest. Today we will pray, we will worship, we will march and shout! We will see walls fall!

What If This Is A Dress Rehearsal?

By Kathi Pelton

The late John Paul Jackson prophesied about two pandemics that would come; the first would mainly produce fear but the second one would be very serious. I am sobered by the fact that God gave us words that we see coming to pass in our current days through voices that “left us too soon” like John Paul Jackson, Kim Clement and Jill Austin. “Give us ears to hear, Lord!”

As I’ve watched fear empty the shelves of grocery stores and even online warehouses I began to think about Joseph and how God gave him the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream (Genesis 41) where there would be seven years of abundance and seven years of famine. Because Joseph was given the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream he was given Pharaoh’s signet ring and put in charge of Egypt during this fourteen year period. Joseph took from the abundance of the seven years and stored grain “beyond what they could measure” that would provide in the days of famine that were coming. During the famine the nations went to Egypt to receive from Joseph’s storehouses the provision that would sustain their lives.

Yesterday I kept hearing in my spirit three words, “Fill Joseph’s Storehouse!”

What if what we are experiencing today with the COV-19 is merely the dress rehearsal for a much more serious pandemic? If it is a dress rehearsal then we, as the church, were not prepared! Where is the wisdom of Joseph that fills the storehouses with grain for the days of famine?

Will the Church arise and take the signet ring of the Lord to take charge and become storehouses that are “filled beyond measure!”

Yes, we want to fill the vats of heaven with prayer first and foremost; we are doing that. Yes, we want to prepare by turning the hearts of sons back to fathers and daughters back to their mothers! We are longing for that! Yes, we want to return to the fear of the Lord that releases wisdom; we are humbling ourselves to receive that wisdom. But, maybe we have forgotten to steward the practical provisions that will be greatly sought after in days of “famine” (or in another global pandemic).

What if the church had storehouses of abundant supplies that were “beyond measure” for the days to come? The nations of the world would come to where the storehouses are in the days of great need.

I am first an intercessors and worshipper; but I want that intercession to release wisdom that has foresight for the days to come. I love the prayer of Solomon in 1 Kings 3,

“…And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”

We need to be given an “understanding mind” to govern this great people! Both Solomon and Joseph were given “understanding minds” to know how to lead and govern; both spiritually and practically. Again, first and foremost, we need to see our nations (our hearts) turned back to God. Solomon’s prayer in 1 Kings 8:22-61 while dedicating the temple confirms that (read and pray those verses for your nation) but often we forget that we need an understanding mind to know how to prepare practically (to steward the abundance we’ve been given). Will we be the much needed storehouse when famine comes?

Let’s begin to ask the Lord to give us wisdom (an understanding mind) of how we, the Church, can become Joseph’s storehouse that is filled with grain for the days that are coming. I looked around my house this week and realized, “I am not prepared! Have I eaten my seed that was for the days of famine?” It’s a real question. This isn’t shame or condemnation but rather a sobriety of the current state of things.

Will God in His great mercy give us time to prepare? Will He give us seven years of plenty so that we will steward abundance for the sake of times of famine? Will we eat the “above and beyond” or store it for the days ahead? God, have mercy upon your people and sober us in this time to humble ourselves and ask for wisdom and an understanding mind.

If we will do this we will see the very ones who “threw us in the pit because of our dreams” come to us in times of great need and hold their hands out to receive from us (spiritually and practically). They will be like Joseph’s brothers and be restored to us; they will show honor the ones that they had previously mocked and threw into a pit.

We are to be the answer to a world in need; spiritually and practically. It’s not “either or” but “both and…

I do not know if what we are experiencing is a dress rehearsal but if it is we have been found wanting and must let this be a wake up call to both dedicate the temple AND to fill the storehouses!

Give us understanding minds God!

God Is Releasing A Pandemic of Miracles

By Kathi Pelton

As we are daily hearing the word “pandemic” throughout all media resources regarding the Coronavirus; the Lord has a different perspective!

Today the Lord asked me to look up the Greek origin of the word, pandemic. The word originates from two Greek words, “pan” meaning “all” and “demos” meaning “people”. It refers to something that affects “all people” (pandemos).

Then the Spirit led me to look up the word corona. It has a number of meanings:

• the rarefied gaseous envelope of the sun and other stars. The sun’s corona is normally visible only during a total solar eclipse, when it is seen as an irregularly shaped pearly glow surrounding the darkened disk of the moon.

• the glow around a conductor at high potential.

• a small circle of light seen around the sun or moon, due to diffraction by water droplets.

• a part of the body resembling or likened to a crown.

• the cup-shaped or trumpet-shaped outgrowth at the center of a daffodil or narcissus flower.

• a circular chandelier in a church.

As you read through these definitions you’ll notice that almost all of them represent a glow or circle of light. Since the beginning of 2020 the Lord has spoken to me again and again that we have entered into a time of seeing the sovereignty of God light up the darkness. I hear continually the words, “Not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit!” (Zechariah 4:6)

The Spirit of the Lord is coming with His might, His power and His light! A great move of the Spirit is beginning that will effect ALL PEOPLE! A PANDEMIC of miracles!

It will be like a great “chandelier” has come on in the midst of His Church to crown her with His Spirit! In the midst of the light being eclipsed by the shadows of evil and fear, the Spirit of the Lord is about to show forth His crowning glory. It will encircle the whole world; all people will see it! Yes, darkness is increasing but it will even more illuminate His light! When you shine a light during the day it is not noticed or effective but when darkness comes the light stands out and people are drawn to it. Mankind looks for light in the darkness.

This move of His Spirit will restore authority, honor, salt and a voice to the Church! His glory will crown His Bride. It will not be credited to any man or woman but all will recognize that it is the glory of the Lord resting upon them. It will usher in unity as competition, jealously and the jostling for positions fall away. A oneness will come upon God’s chosen remnant as Jesus prayed for in John 17:21-23. All credit and praise will be given to the Lord!

The light in the midst of darkness will be like the “rending of a veil” that has blinded many from seeing that Jesus is the Light of the World. Seekers of light will see the true Light for the first time! Many in the new age and cults will see the truth and turn to Jesus. Many looking for true identity will see the image of Jesus and find their God-given identity for the first time! His light will trumpet truth and reveal Christ. Many will be “crowned with salvation.” Jesus will be restore as the “center.”

Though this Coronavirus is a bad report that is affecting all people with fear; there is a good report coming from the Throne of God! A virus multiplies within living cells of its host but we will see the glory of the Lord multiply in those who host His Spirit and His presence. The solution to this demonic virus is to host His presence! His Spirit will come with power to heal, deliver, save and reveal the Light of the World.

Let’s become the hosts of light and the presence of the Lord; then watch what His Spirit will do!
