We Are Fighting For “The Image of God” To Be Preserved In Our Children

By Kathi Pelton

Recently, during a time of intercession, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Kathi, do you know what the enemy hates most of all? He hates my image in every created person.”

Instantly I understood why we are witnessing the depth of depravity regarding identity, gender, and sexuality that we see today. Last week’s Democratic National Convention featured a panel that hosted an individual who claims to be a “Black-Vietnamese, transgender nonbinary/gender transcendent mermaid Queen-King.” The attack against our children and our children’s children, regarding identity and the image of God that they were created to display, is beyond anything that we could have ever imagined in years past. If someone would have suggested that a political party would have hosted a panelist that claimed to be a “mermaid Queen-King” we would have shaken our heads and said, “That will never happen!” And yet it is happening.

What was yesterday’s insanity is today’s celebrated norm. The confusion and delusion is truly mind boggling. In saying this, there is no hate or lack of compassion for those who have been caught in this great deception because if Jesus were here waking the earth, these are the ones He would have dined with and told stories to that would have brought them to salvation. Oh, how He loves all who He has created; and we must do the same.

My point in bringing up this level of confusion regarding identity, gender, and sexuality is to point out that the enemy absolutely hates to have to look upon the image of God within you and me and our children. He wants to wipe it out; make it so distorted and diluted that God’s image within mankind is unrecognizable.

It is the greatest mockery of God’s creation. This mockery and perversion of true identity is a slap in the face of our crucified Savior. It is not only a great wound piercing the heart of Jesus but it is heart-breaking and heart-wrenching to every Christian parent that has loved their their precious son or daughter, dedicated them to Christ, sung over them lullabies of Jesus’ love, and raised them in the truths of the Word, only to see them caught in the trap of this great deception.

How do I know this? Because one of my beautiful children has been caught in this deception. All our other children and their spouses love the Lord with all of their hearts, but this one precious child has been stolen and is trapped in a life that is destroying the beauty of the image of God that she was created in. As a parent, who loved and nurtured such a beautiful creation, I find my heart so deeply grieved for such a waste of beauty and identity— I grieve for the loss of all of the plans that the Lord has for her life that are not being lived out.

But this article is not about my child but about “our children and our children’s children!” This may be one of the greatest attacks on mankind ever played out. So, what can we do?

Jesus is the great Intercessor and we must join Him as intercessors. When I hear a believer say that he or she is not a “great intercessor” (as if that were a calling such as a pastor, teacher or apostle) I immediately think, “Well, it’s time to become one!” We are all to have prayer and intercession be nurtured in our lives in the same way we nurture our lives with the Word of God. I’ve never heard a true Christian say, “I’m not a follower of the Bible.” We all know and understand that the Word of God is our lamp that lights our path; that is undisputed. So, why do we label some people “intercessors” and some not? If we want to see the image of God in our children and in the generation that is being born today, then we must join Jesus in His intercession for them!

“Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” Romans‬ ‭8:34‬ ‭

Rather than condemn, we must begin to intercede! We must allow our private times with the Lord and even our corporate times together to become times that we enter into His intercession. In 2016 I was involved in a time of corporate intercession, along with ten thousand other believers from all across the world, as we entered into the intercession of Jesus for the US elections. There was no mention of a particular candidate, but rather a crying out for His will to be done. I watched as thousands of Chinese men and women rushed to the front of this convention center in Jerusalem to “push” in prayer. It wasn’t even their nation being prayed for but they entered into the intercession of Jesus with groaning too deep for words.

“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26

The “wordless groans” were so deep and pure. They were bringing heaven to earth. The next day most of us were completely shocked by the election results— to this day I believe it was birthed in intercession by the nations of the world who entered into the intercession of Christ.

What if we began to do this for our children; for the preservation and revelation of “the image of God” that is within them? What if rather than another conference we gathered to intercede? If we grabbed the horns of the altar and did not let go until we saw the breakthrough?

“Adonijah was afraid of Solomon, so he rushed to the sacred tent and grabbed on to the horns of the altar.” 1 Kings 1:50

In the Old Testiment, Adonijah had sinned greatly and he knew to run to the altar and plead for mercy— and he received it and his life was spared.

Stephen S. Gibney writes this about the altar with the horns, “The altar has two meanings: the first meaning was that the altar symbolized the cross of Christ (Heb 13:10) and the second is that the altar symbolized fiery prayer (Lev. 6:13). One man said that, ‘Altars were places where the divine and human worlds interacted. Altars were places of exchange, communication, and influence. God responded actively to altar activity.’”

Rather than shaking our heads at the narrative regarding identity and gender in the world today, isn’t it time for us to go before the cross of Christ in fiery prayer and watch the divine world and the human world interact until we see a breakthrough?

This is a battle fought in heavenly places. What is being played out on earth is not fought on earth but in the place of intercession— the intercession of Jesus. If conferences and corporate gatherings were to become prayer meeting where we took hold of the horns on the altar and cried out for mercy, we could see our children saved from having their identity robbed and the image of God mocked.

Isn’t it time?

Two Dreams: Prayer Can Change What Lies Ahead

By Kathi Pelton

I am writing this in the middle of the night so that I do not forget the dreams that I just had or the message I received through them.

In the first dream I was taken over the earth where in the spiritual atmosphere of the second heavens there was a timeline that looked like individual “film stills” (photos) that were setting in place for future events. These scenes and pictures appeared to be securely set in and unchangable as they were going before “real time on earth.” They seemed to prophesy from the demonic realm— like the enemy was producing a movie that was being played out on earth ahead of time. It was his narrative and his script for what lies ahead.

Then, as I looked upon this furture timeline (which included catastrophic events, upheaval and hopelessness) I suddenly saw smoke coming from the earth that was from a huge golden incense jar. This wasn’t like the smoke that billows from a fire with dark plumes of black, but it was a steady stream of colorful smoke that danced like a gentle river as it ascending toward heaven. When this incense touched this future timeline that was being set in place (produced), the photos of “what was coming” began to melt away. They were being pulled out of what has appeared “set and secured” for our future and melting as this incense touched it, causing the scenes to disappear. Then I saw before my eyes the words, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS.

As I woke up I heard the Spirit of the Lord repeating over and over, “Pray, it changes things! Pray, pray, pray!” I saw once again how prayer creates an incense that interrupts the enemy’s plan and script to make an opening in the heavens for God’s will and plans to come to earth. It is when God’s people pray that times and seasons align with the will of God. It makes a way for “On earth as it is in Heaven.”

The enemy always has a different script that wants to usurp God’s ways, plans and timeline. His brings hopelessness that gives the message that “no change is available” but God is inviting us to pray like never before because the prayers of the saints will melt away the plans of the evil one and open up a way for the plans of the Lord to be done on earth in His way and His timing. God’s ways always bring hope and promise; even in the midst of judgement. Mercy remains present!

The second dream that I had was of a constant sound that was over the earth at this time. This was a demonic sound that was repeating phrases over and over that were brainwashing the people of the earth. They spoke evil things and called them good and then called good things evil. I heard phrases like, “Communism is good.”, “Marxism is good.” along with many other phrases. It had a seductive spirit that caused even some of God’s elect to begin to believe this message. In this dream the “spiritual soundtrack” of these messages was constant and subliminal. I remember at one point in the dream being allowed to feel the alluring that it was releasing upon people’s minds so that they would begin to believe the unimaginable. It was like a drug that altered minds.

Though I was not shown a solution in this dream (only the condition of what was happening) I woke up wanting to trumpet the Word of God like a shofar into the atmosphere. I longed to get my Bible out and begin to pray and decree His infallible Word. I wanted to shout the good news of the gospel of Christ and His truths as written in the scriptures.

I believe that in these two dreams there are two clear messages:

• Prayer releases an incense that cuts through the future plans of the enemy and opens a way for “on earth as it is in Heaven.”

And,

• The sound of the Living Word that is found in the written Word will overcome the sound that is redefining what is evil as good and what is good as evil. Release His sound of truth!

Please take the strategies that the Lord is releasing in this hour and put them into action. This is not merely a time to say, “Amen” but to put into practice prayer and the declarations of His written Word that is alive! Pray the Word, pray in the Spirit, pray for His will to be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Join the intercession of Jesus.

We must not be passive and begin to sink under the lies that says no change is available. If that was so then why does Jesus intercede? Why did He pray during His time on earth and why did He teach His disciples to pray? It is because, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS! We also know that His Word does not return void— so release His Word!

“May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

An American Apology To The Great I Am

By Kathi Pelton

We live in a glorious land filled with rocky mountains,
green valleys,
rolling hills and
blooming deserts.

We have beautiful diversity in our people, places and languages.

We have known the freedom of speech, the freedom to worship and freedom to make personal choices. How blessed we have been.

Our pledge of allegiance declares that we are “One Nation Under God” and our currency reads “In God We Trust”…but America— we have divided our nation from the One we claimed to love.

God has looked for those who will stand in the gap of this great divide to pray– to repent– to turn back and to bow low.

Here we are!

Forgive us Lord. Forgive us for trading—
Mercy for mammon
Grace for greed
Freedom for captivity
Trust for tyranny
Unity for division
And- love for hate.

It is said that “United we stand, divided we fall” We are falling, oh God! We have divided from you and now freedom is falling, liberty is lacking and unity is unseen.

Our divided history has resurfaced, the secret societies have been revealed and the hidden agendas are now exposed for all to see. We are naked, we are cold and we need you!

God have mercy!

Those who still call upon your name, who put their trust in you and who know that you are our only hope now bow down.

We bow down in sorrow, we bow down in worship, we bow down in repentance and we bow down in prayer. We humble ourselves before the you— the great I Am.

Unless the Lord builds a house then all is vanity— forgive us for the vain and the profane. You are the only foundation that stands— therefore, we bow down and declare to the foundations of America, “Come back to the Rock that is higher than you! Return to the One who died for you!”

We bow low that you may be lifted high. Higher than our mountains, higher than our might, higher than our lofty thoughts. We declare, “Not by our might, not by our power but only by your Spirit shall we be saved!”

Forgive us for turning away from truth, turning from the one true way, turning from peace, turning from blessing, turning away from covenant and turning away from you.

We stand in the gap as representatives of this nation called the United States of America and we turn back to you! We declare that we are one nation under God and that our trust is in you alone. We declare true liberty from the captivity of sin for all. We declare your justice for every person of every color. We bridge the great divide with our repentance and our declaration of allegiance to you!

We love your Word, we love your ways and we surrender all to you today. Jesus, you are our King, our Lord, our Savior and our God. In you we trust and in you we put our confident hope. We run to you.

Forgive us, heal us and unite us in the oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and have given to us. The blood of Jesus speaks a better word!

God Bless America— the land that we love. Stand beside us and guide us through the night with the light from above.

Amen!

REMNANT— ROAR — RUACH: The Spiritual Three R’s of 2020

By Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”

REMNANT

I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.

As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”

From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.

The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.

There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings the revelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!

ROAR

The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.

After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.

“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8

I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.

RUACH

The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”

As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.

Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14

The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross in John 17:20-23

““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!

We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!

Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!

May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!

Let it be so!

People and Nations Becoming Rooted and Grounded in Love

By Kathi Pelton

The Holy Spirit has had me praying for the body of Christ and our nation out of Ephesians 3, beginning with verse 16, for the past few weeks. Verse 16 says,

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:16‬

What a powerful and wonderful prayer that we should all be praying for every believer. It’s such a Kairos time to see the Spirit of the Lord empower each of us with “inner strength” out of His “glorious and unlimited resources!” This is a prayer we should be praying over our lives, our loved ones and even our nations leaders who believe in Christ as their Savior. An inner strength is needed like never before in our lifetime.

Ephesians 3 goes on to say in verse 17,

“Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:17

I see so many who are weary and feeling weak and yet this verse offers a solid solution for keeping you strong. As you are empowered by His Spirit with inner strength; which will produce trust in Him— then Christ will make His home in your heart. As your heart becomes a resting place for our Savior, His love will empower you and the roots of your life will go deep into the rich soil of His love. It’s a beautiful progression of inward prosperity and riches.

If trust in God is what causes Him to make His home in our heart then just think of what would happen if our nation(s) turned back to “In God We Trust!” God would find a home and a resting place in the heart of our nation once again. But often these restorations begin in the house of God (in His people first).

Let’s continue onto verse 18,

“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭

This is so essential for God’s people! If we would pray that the Spirit would empower us to understand the width, length, height and depth of the His love then we would know what is needed and what the world is crying out to understand and experience. It says, “…as all God’s people should…” In other words, we don’t but we should! Often as you scroll through social media and observe much of what God’s people have to say, what you will quickly discover is that there are a lot of opinions and words without a depth of love— or without being rooted in love. What is prophesy or words without love?

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-2‬ ‭

The gifts of the Spirit without the love of God are just noise! There is already too much noise out there. What sets our words and voice apart from all the noise? Love! When we begin to be rooted in the love of God, which begins with trusting Him, then we release the sound that breaks through the noise! Love is the frequency of Heaven that shatters darkness, confusion and fear. It breaks through barriers and opens deaf ears.

Ephesians 3:19 goes on to say this,

“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:19‬

There is an “experience that surpasses understanding.” When a person has an experience with the love of God— then they are forever changed! I can understand that “you love me” but the personal experience with your love will impact and change my life!

Men and women are made complete and “full of life” when they experience God’s love. But what does this verse also say? They will be made complete in His “power” that comes from God!!

I have been around Christian ministers who moved in a so-called power ministry and yet there was a great lack of love. Power without love is illegal! Almost all of these ministries end up falling away because we must be rooted and grounded in love to rightfully be empowered by His Spirit and to see others experience the life changing power that the love of God brings. Power without love will destroy both the user and the receiver.

Finally, Ephesians 3:20 says,

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:20‬ ‭

We love this verse!! The “more than we can ask or think (imagine)” is one of Christian’s favorite verses. But we must put it into context. This verse comes after verses 16-19. There is a progression that we cannot skip.

• Praying for His Spirit to empower us with inner strength.

• Trusting Him so that He makes His home in our hearts.

• Allowing the roots of our life to go deep in the soil of His love.

• Asking to understand the fullness of the love of God.

• Asking to experience the love of God since we cannot fully understand it.

• Asking the Spirit to make you complete with all life and power that comes from God.

• Yeilding to God’s mighty power to work in each of us which accomplishes more than we can ask or imagine!

I believe that these are key verses the Spirit of God wants prayed over our lives, our loved ones and those in leadership. Love shifts everything! It changes the sound, the narrative, the power to change the lives around us, the atmosphere and the world!

Let’s silence the noise and release the sound that has depth, width, length and height…the sound that is rooted in the love of God!

Making A List— Checking It Twice

By Kathi Pelton

My life is busy!! My brain is full and to be honest— I’m easily distracted!! Is anyone else like that?

So— I have learned to use lists! If I go shopping or have a busy day planned…I make a list. When I have an upcoming birthday or at Christmas time I make a list! WhenI pack a ministry trip or vacation—yep, I make lists to keep me on track and so that I don’t miss something important. When we moved cross country in January…A LONG CHECK LIST WAS ESSENTIAL!

What about with prayer? Yes— I make prayer lists!! Not for every prayer time since I like to live a lifestyle of continuous prayer. But for my focused daily prayer time I have a list. My list includes prayer points that I bring before the “Throne of Grace” and as I bring each point before our Lord, I then wait for His Spirit to lead me in His intercession for that person or subject. It is not dry or legalistic but rather it keeps me focused and at the same time leaves room to be led by the Spirit to go deeper and spend more time on what He reveals needs more attention.

My prayer list is also an ongoing testimony book of answers! I always leave space to add notes and the testimonies of answers to those prayers. It becomes the spirit of prophesy to the prayers yet to be answered.

For instance— I pray for all of our ministry supporters each day. As I mention them by name, I wait and I am sensitive to the Spirit giving me insight and His heart to press in deeper day by day for specific ones. I do the same thing with our children. I bring each one before Him and wait…always asking Holy Spirit to lead me and pray through me for what He knows they need; not just what I want for them.

Usually my list includes prayers for our nations leaders, our local church leaders, our city and nation. Again, as I bring these before His throne of grace— I pause and listen for His voice and to feel His heart. Some days it’s merely mentioning these things and other days it become deep intercession. He leads— I follow!

I also pray His Word. Praying aloud the scriptures over your loved ones, leaders and nation will never come back void! For instance, yesterday I had Ephesians 3:17-19 on my heart. It reads,

“I ask that out of the riches of His glory He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. Then you, being rooted and grounded in love, will have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

I began to pray these verses aloud over my children, my husband, our ministry supporters, our leaders and our nation. That they (we) would be rooted and grounded in love and the knowledge and fullness of God. His Word is always better than my words!

Far too often the church will view anything planned as “religious or legalistic.” That is not true! We can make lists and still yield and submit to the leading and flow of His Spirit. Often the church is not getting things accomplished due to distraction and the desire to be freely led— but think of how much is accomplished when you do both. You make a plan and you yield to the Lord directing and establishing your steps— even in prayer.

“The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD directs and establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9

So—as the Christmas song goes, “He’s making a list, checking it twice…” During this time of heightened distraction in the spiritual atmosphere it might be good to make a list! Then bring your prayer points before the throne of grace and where Jesus will meet with you.

“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Hebrews 4:16

The Enemy’s Kryptonite

By Kathi Pelton

We are standing in the midst of an nation that is gripped in fear, rage, pain and exposure. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. Our very roots are being shaken as chaos fills our cities and streets.

So, how do we— the body of Christ— position ourselves and navigate these perilous times? I spend the past week asking the Lord and even talking with trusted friends about this very thing. Though I only “see in part”, I would like to submit to you my part.

One of the things that the Lord clearly reminded me of was of a vision that I had over twenty years ago where I was taken over a particular nation that was in great turmoil. This nation was not only experiencing a shaking but it was also very known for worshipping idols (burning incense to man made statues, making offerings to carved images, etc.). In my vision I was taken above this nation and I saw what I can only describe as the scent of fear, idolatry, anger, pain and the worship of false gods that was attracting demons to gather in what looked like a “feeding frenzy.” The demonic activity over this nation was being fed by the emotional reactions and the works of men and women enslaved to serve images that demand a cost yet give nothing in return.

Then, in this vision (encounter), I was taken to the solution. I saw the believers in this nation raising up the standard of the “fear of the Lord.” What that looked like was a posture of abiding trust, becoming still in perfect peace, persevering in prayer and devoted to the worship of Jesus alone! As the believers engaged in this it released a fragrance or perfume in the atmosphere over this nation of “the scent of Heaven.” Suddenly the demons began to flee in absolute anguish as the scent of Christ’s body was released. It was a “repelling scent to the forces of hell.” The other thing that happened in this encounter was that as the beautiful fragrance of the bride filled the atmosphere it caused angels to rush and gather to the scent. It strengthened them and they fed upon the peace, the trust, the prayers of faith and the worship. It strengthened them to be victorious in battling the powers and principalities that were keeping nations and people captive. I watched this nation change through the remnant of God’s people shifting the atmosphere that became like kryptonite to the enemy and his demons.

The second thing that the Lord reminded me of was that He has always told me these words,

“Kathi, peace and the stillness of abiding trust is absolute confusion and chaos to the enemy!”

Peace and trust is like an encoded message that the enemy cannot decode. It also releases chaos and fear into the enemy’s camp like no other thing. The peace is God causes confusion and chaos to come upon the enemy’s plans!

There will be assignments that will be given to many in this time. Some of you will be called to the public squares in cities as reformers. Some of you will be called to the secret place of prayer. Some of you will be called to serve on mountains of influence that need to be redeemed and some of you will be called to release the sound of worship. Whatever the call, the assignment or the place…do it from the place of perfect peace and abiding trust. This posture will become the promise of Psalm 91 over you and it will be a weapon like no other.

Whether you are going out to the streets or closing yourself into your prayer closet; this is a time to “be still and know that He is God!” The stillness of peace and trust will make room for Him to move!

This truly is a “not by might, nor by power but by His Spirit” time in history! Sometimes our silence and stillness that comes from absolute trust deafens the noise and calms the storm more than anything else. What did Jesus do in the storm? He slept in perfect peace knowing that His Father would not let anything happen to him.

You may raise your voice in worship and truth but there is a stillness and silent trust that will establish far more than anything else we can offer at this time. If fear and chaos has filled your heart and mind— this is the time to ask the Spirit of the Lord to deliver you from the atmosphere and influence of this world and to usher you into the unshakable Kingdom of His dear Son. Peace and trust will clothe you with a stillness that confounds the enemy and gives you strength.

“Be still and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Pray For President Trump! A Dream and a Warning

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was sent an email that shared a dream that someone had which had me in it. She did not know what it meant but felt that she was to share it with me. As I read it I received insight regarding what the Lord was saying through this dream. I believe it clearly points to a demonic plot against our president that can be likened to Absalom’s plot to kill King David (and all those with him) in 2 Samuel 17.

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

The dream begins on the outskirts of an alligator infested swamp where I am with the person who had the dream and other intercessors. We see the oldest, largest and most hidden alligator that lives in this swamp and grass was growing on the back of this great beast. The grass was there to camouflage and hide him from being seen. People were walking upon this grass completely unaware of what was right under their feet.

I believe that the swamp represents the United States of America. Our president is known for saying, “Drain the swamp!” But, the enemy knows that if we drain the swamp we will expose this Leviathan.

After the “swamp scene” the dream changes. In the next part of the dream I am instructing the intercessors to go to Colorado Springs. We go there and I go into a room with a bed in it and lay face down on it in order to receive a “word from the Lord.” Suddenly the Spirit of the Lord falls on me causing me to shake so severely that I fall off of the bed and onto the floor; shaking under His power. As I read this part I felt that it could represent the importance of the word that I will receive; which could be the interpretation to this dream.

I find it interesting that I send this group to Colorado Springs since this is where Lou Engel is now living and leading our nation into prayer and fasting from his home there. I also found out that Vice President Pence arrived in Colorado Springs the same day I received the dream (April 18th) which I believe speaks to the NOW timing upon this dream. Our Vice President is the head of the Coronavirus task force therefore God may be asking for prayer for him and his leadership in this role.

The last part of this dream is that the person (who had this dream) was with me in the room when the Spirit fell on me. She was holding her “revelation journals” and all she remembers is that she wanted giving me a scripture out of 2 Samuel. That concluded the dream.

The person who had this dream could not remember the chapter or verse reference from 2 Samuel. Yet when I read the dream I felt led to ask her the date that she had the dream and she told me the early morning hours of the 17th. I felt the Spirit say, “Go to 2 Samuel 17 and you will know what is happening.” So, I first went to the early verses in 2 Samuel 17. That is when I read these words that captured my attention,

“I will strike while he is weary and exhausted, and terrify him; and all the people with him will flee [in terror]. Then I will attack the king alone,” 2 Samuel‬ ‭17:2‬ ‭

Please read thorough 2 Samuel 17 regarding the plans of Absalom to take King David’s life. I feel convinced that the enemy has a plot to destroy our president and cause those standing him to run from him in terror (leaving him exposed).

Let’s pray that our president will listen to the voices of the prophets in his life and follow their instructions. A spirit of rebellion is plotting against him in a time where he is weary and exhausted. It’s an Absalom spirit that wants to take the place of “king” and rally the people under his leadership. Through the words of the prophet a strategy is made to save the King David. Because of this strategy King David and those with him are rerouted and saved causing Absalom’s plans to thwarted. He then hangs himself.

There is a victory if we pray and bring wisdom and warning to our president. Let us get on our faces and pray!

A Declaration Prayer For You Today

By Kathi Pelton

As I was reading through Job 5, I felt the Lord ask me to rewrite it to make it into a personal declaration prayer for you to declare over your lives and your homes today. His Word does not return “empty or void” but accomplished all that He desires (Isaiah 55:11).

“God, I present my case to you.

You do great things too marvelous to understand. You perform countless miracles. You give rain for the earth and water for the fields.

You give prosperity to the poor and protect those who suffer. You frustrates the plans of schemers so the work of their hands will not succeed. You trap the wise in their own cleverness so their cunning schemes are thwarted. They will find it is dark in the daytime, and they will grope at noon as if it were night.

You rescue the poor from the cutting words of the strong, and rescue them from the clutches of the powerful. And so at last the poor have hope, and the snapping jaws of the wicked are shut.

You will save us from death in time of famine, from the power of the sword in time of war. We will be safe from slander and have no fear when destruction comes. We will laugh at destruction and famine; wild animals will not terrify us. We will be at peace with the stones of the field, and its wild animals will be at peace with us.

We will know that our homes are safe. When we survey our possessions, nothing will be missing.

We will have many children; our descendants will be as plentiful as grass!

We will go to the grave at a ripe old age, like a sheaf of grain harvested at the proper time!”
‭‭
Job‬ ‭5:8-26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

He is faithful and true and His Word goes forth with power and authority. Let hope arise and confidence in God give your inner man strength!

We are declaring these words over you as well as over our home and our family— you are our family!

A Preemptive Strike of Prayer— A Shaking For Awakening!

By Kathi Pelton

For days now I have had a deep sense that the enemy is trying to change times and seasons. His plan is to prematurely initiate things that would “buy him more time” and stop the Church from occupying land that he has held.

God will use this “pandemic/epidemic” to usher the Church into a greater purity and into the governmental authority that we were intended to walk in. As many of God’s people have joined in the 40-day “Jesus Fast” and now (beginning March 18th) a three-day Esther fast— I believe that this fast is unto a greater purification and authority for the days to come.

The enemy’s plan is to take this global crisis into a global shift that would change times and seasons but as I was woken up at 3 a.m. to pray, I heard the words,

“I have enacted a preemptive strike of prayer that will cut this global demonic assignment short!”

Corporate prayer will stop this in its tracks! As prayer is partnered with the fasting that is happening on a global scale, we will see this come to a sudden and miraculous halt. In this hour we have all witnessed prayer meetings move from the boundaries of buildings to the seemingly limitless expanse of the internet. Nations are joining together as ONE FAMILY to pray, stand with one another and to be the corporate voice of the Bride. Theological differences (opinions) and cultural differences are being set aside to raise our voices as one voice.

In the midst of a global tragic pandemic a global incense of prayer is being released and it is beautiful! It is uniting His people in an offering of prayer and praise. It is John 17:21-23 coming upon the Church.

“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. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.” ‭

In the midst of what was sent to separate us and isolate us; God has raised up a way to come into times and places of corporate authority, unity and agreement in order to launch a preemptive strike of prayer. We may not be physically together but we are joined in our spirits and online as nations gather to humble themselves and pray as one!

We are praying with nations and names that we never have joined with before this crisis began. Our schedules and lives have been interrupted but God is using it to awaken us from a slumber that was allowing the enemy to dictate time and change seasons.

On Monday morning I was at a prayer meeting and while I was there I went into a vision. In the vision I was trying to wake up my oldest son, who is a very heavy sleeper (VERY heavy sleeper!). I heard his alarm go off but it did not wake him up so I went into his room and began to gently shake him; still he did not wake up. I then realized that the hour was late and began to shake him harder. Finally I shook him with a force that shook everything around him. With that he was awakened— just in time to not be late.

I immediately knew that it was a vision revealing that there are those who have been in a “hard sleep” that needed a forceful shaking to finally awaken. My oldest son is part of the millennial generation and I felt that is was also to further awaken those upcoming leaders who are now young adults. The enemy wanted to have these ones sleep through his attempt to change times and seasons until it was “too late.”

God is using this shaking to awaken many to keep and align with His times and seasons; with His heart and longings. As I went into intercession following the vision I found my mouth crying out the words, “Awaken us from this ‘hard sleep’ that has caused our hearts to slumber in the hour of need.”

A couple years ago I was given a very detailed dream of a younger millennial generation. In this dream they would not sleep as the disciples did while Jesus prayed in the garden on the night of his betrayal. They would remain awake and “give Him no restuntil the end…” (Isaiah 62:7). In this very detailed dream (which I’ll share at another time) God called this generation His “Third Watch Generation.”

The third watch of the night is the midnight to 3 a.m. hours. There are four watches of the night; the fourth being from 3 am to 6 am which finishes the night. Many believe that we are in the “fourth watch” of the ages but in this dream the Lord clearly spoke and called the young adults of this day “The Third Watch Generation.” They may be the trip wire for the third great awakening. But it may take a great shaking (as we are experiencing) to awaken many of them from a “hard sleep” so that they, “Give Him no rest!” They may be the ones to usher in the fourth and final watch?

Let this shaking awaken every place in each of us that has been in a “hard sleep.” Let’s awaken to first love and not turn him away when He comes to knock upon the door of our hearts.

Throughout this week the words from Songs of Solomon 3:1-4 have been going through my spirit,

“By night on my bed I sought the one I love; I sought him, but I did not find him. “I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; In the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.” I sought him, but I did not find him. The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, “Have you seen the one I love?” Scarcely had I passed by them, When I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go, Until I had brought him to the house of my mother, And into the chamber of her who conceived me.”

In this time of shaking, prayer and fasting may we be like the bride running through the streets looking for the “one we love” and may we find Him, hold Him and not let Him go!

This shaking is causing a preemptive strike that stops the enemy from changing times and seasons but even greater— it is awakening first love!
