Two Types of Wrestles: One With God and One Against God

By Kathi Pelton

Two months ago the Spirit of the Lord told me that 2021 would be a “wrestle or a dance” for his people. He extended an invitation to enter the dance with him but he also made it clear to me that many would not receive his invitation. The ones who do not take his hand and dance with him will walk according to their own steps (and wisdom) resulting in a painful wrestle. This word helped me to continue to fully yield and surrender to his invitation to follow his lead and keep my eyes fixed on his.

We are less than two weeks into 2021 and I keep hearing people say how they are wrestling with what it happening in our world, with what is true, what is from God and what they are seeing with their eyes. Quite honestly, I don’t think that there is anyone who hasn’t had a bit of a wrestle because the world is shouting at us to look upon the “things of the world” and we wrestle to keep our eyes on things above. What was once familiar in this world has suddenly become unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Yet, God has not changed and he is still our Comforter.

When I began to find myself wrestling to “keep my eyes on things above”, I asked the Lord a very serious question, “Have I left the dance that you are leading and entered the wrestle that you warned us about?”

He responded by revealing to me that there are two types of wrestle— one that rebels against his leadership and one that wrestles down the flesh to enter into full submission and surrender to his leading.

After Jacob wrestled with God his name was changed from Jacob to Israel. Israel means, “The one who has prevailed with God.” His wrestle changed and aligned his life to prevail with God. To prevail means: To prove more powerful than opposing forces; to be victorious.

God has prevailed over his enemies! He has prevailed against sin and death; he is inviting us into “prevailing with him!” While this is our desired posture- often we first have to wrestle down the narrative that this world has written upon our souls. The narrative of doubt, skepticism, unbelief, defeat and fear always fight against God’s prevailing victory like a boat tossed about by a raging sea.

Those carnal narratives can lead us to hold back from God, to manipulate, to rebel and to enter into a “flight” rather than a fight mode. The Lord revealed to me that the wrestle against that which would prevent me from “prevailing with God” is part of the dance that we are in. We are wrestling down the flesh that rebels against God for the sake of allowing surrender to make us one with him. As we are one with him, we become one in prevailing with him. No longer do we battle from a hope for victory but we battle from victory that has already been established.

The wrestle that we DO NOT want to enter into is the wrestle that causes us to walk according to the flesh rather than the Spirit. That posture doesn’t wrestle with God but against God. It tries to wrestle down truth, covenant, love, righteousness and oneness. It could be compared to when a married couple postures themselves against one another and begins to demand their way to the point of breaking the bond of oneness, defiling the covenant and eventually walking away from one another.

Marriage can be compared to a dance in which we have to learn steps that submit to one another, prefer one another, lay down demands and change our ways as needed. Sometimes we step on one another’s toes until we get down the steps so that we can move in unity and oneness. Marriage can feel like a wrestle at times while we learn to surrender to love but when you “fight for prevailing together” it transforms the individuals into one flesh; yet, many prefer flight from the fight for oneness…and just walk away. Just like in marriage, to wrestle (fight) for oneness through a surrendered heart and feet that follow his lead is a fight worthy of entering into. It is the fight against all that is within us that rebels against God and his ways. This will end in a name change! You too will be called, “One who prevailed with God!”

Be careful to not fix your eyes on this world or become overwhelmed by all the chaos in it. When that happens most people enter into one of two postures. One is to become enraged and bitter, causing them to focus their eyes on the world and charge forward in their own zeal and opinions (which is foolishness to God). The other is to completely disengage. For instance to stop praying, worshipping, reading the Word and to comfort themselves with a posture of denial and distancing themselves from both the things happening in the world and from God. Neither posture will allow you to “prevail with God!”

For those who want to walk in their own ways, live in their own opinions and lead their own steps (and who call themselves believers), they will find themselves tripping over God’s feet and wrestling with rebellion.

I normally find writing such an easy form of communication in my life and yet trying to describe these two different wrestles is proving difficult. I only pray that I have communicated it clearly. 2021 can be a dance, but sometimes we will have to wrestle against the temptation to create our own steps or move according to our natural tendencies. We have never been this way before! Especially for those of us in the United States- we have never even dreamed of walking through what we are suddenly facing.

Know this, the dancefloor for this dance that “prevails with God” is in the heavenly realms, not the earthly realm (although it will greatly impact the earthly realms). Our eyes must be fixed on things above and our thoughts must be upon those things that are “praiseworthy.” I want to remind you of one key that He gave me when He asked me to enter this dance, he said, “Keep your eyes fixed on mine and your feet will follow.”

YOU CAN WRESTLE WITH GOD BUT DO NOT WRESTLE AGAINST GOD! The wrestle with him will cause you to prevail with him. The wrestle against him will cause only pain and defeat. Fight for oneness with him!

2021: A Wrestle or A Dance?

By Kathi Pelton

I will be putting out a longer and more detailed word regarding “prophetic insights for 2021” in the coming days. But for now I wanted to share with you the most important thing that the Lord spoke to me. It was these words,

“Tell my people that the days ahead will either be a wrestle or a dance. It is their choice.”

Then I saw the Lord extending his hand toward his bride; inviting her to dance with him. His eyes were filled with tenderness, longing and deep love for her. I knew by revelation that this was a dance that she’d never danced before— it was intimate but also intricate. I could see her longing to enter his arms and dance but I also saw her trepidation because she did not know the steps.

He once again spoke saying, “Don’t look at your feet but look into my eyes and your feet will follow.”

This dance required her to remove her shoes— she was barefoot because this was holy. She also needed to be able to keenly feel the ground beneath her feet as she followed his lead. Face to face would be the posture needed for the steps ahead. Eyes locked on his eyes and not on the things below— he will lead and order the steps as love leads the dance. The light in his eyes will bring beauty, joy and pleasure even as you are trampling serpents with your joined steps— you’ll be unhindered by what is below because your gaze will be fixed on his eyes.

I also saw another scene. It was those who insisted on walking as they have in the past. They weren’t wanting a dance but rather a fight. Deep inside they wanted to take the lead. They tightened their boot straps and forged ahead. Then quickly they got tangled up in the movements of Jesus because he was not moving the way that they were. The clash in movements became a wrestle to those who didn’t take his hand and engage in the steps of this dance.

I was very aware that each step of this intricate dance was defeating more giants than anything we had done before. This dance required surrender, yielding, oneness and undivided focus. It was a surrender to the realization that “his ways are not our ways” in an atmosphere that provoked the flesh to battle in “our ways.”

The enemy provokes people to get us to enter into our strength, our ways and even our strategies. He has no idea how to battle those who are surrender to oneness with Christ. He has no idea what to do with joy and unity. Peace is absolute chaos to the enemy, who feeds on an atmosphere of anxiety and fear.

I don’t know the steps to this dance but I know his eyes and therefore I will remove my shoes and draw near with a surrendered and yielded heart…and let him lead. We will see more victories than ever before. This dance will lead prodigals home and the lost into the arms of Christ. It will release peace, joy and favor and it will reorder things like a supernatural plumb line.

If you find yourself in a wrestle then stop and find his eyes— then let his eyes lead your feet back into the dance. We dance and live from the place of victory…because Jesus has already defeated death and hell.

“Then the virgin will rejoice in the dance,
And the young men and the old, together,
For I will turn their mourning into joy
And will comfort them and give them joy for their sorrow.”

Jeremiah 31:13

The Backfire!

By Kathi Pelton

I woke up from a dream this morning as the sound of a massive “shot” or “backfire” sounded in my dream. As I woke up I heard the words, “A divine backfire.”

The meaning of backfire is this: A plan or action— rebound adversely on the originator; have the opposite effect to what was intended.

Today, 12/12, is the 40 day mark since the November 3rd election. In the Biblical story of when David faced Goliath the Philistine army had mocked the Israelite army and their God for 40 days. On the 40th day to young David goes out without the armor of a warrior and with merely a stone and sling to face Goliath. It was David’s confidence in the name of Yahweh, that took Goliath down by the mere shot of a stone.

David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.46 This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel.” 1 Samuel 17:45-46

The mocking accusations backfired on the Philistines that day!

When I heard in my dream the backfire or shot, I woke up and saw the stone hit the head of Goliath and the sound of the shot as struck his head. Then I heard the words, “The shot heard around the world.” As this spirit that mocks hits the ground it will shake the nations with the fear of the Lord.

Today is a backfire day! Crown Jesus King of Kings!

A Powerful Dream of Fire and Light

By Kathi Pelton

I woke up out of a dream this morning that immediately became a revelation. Rather than share all the details of the dream (many were symbolic)— I will share with you the revelation that came forth from it.

The Lord showed me a great fire that has been sent by His hand upon the Church. This fire has been sent to refine, purify and burn away the “underbrush” from our lives. It has been and continues to be a necessary fire so that His people are prepared to walk in the authority of a royal priesthood. This is a holy preparation that is removing compromises that have diluted our authority and power. It is preparing us to be agents of change and ambassadors of Christ that walk in spiritual and governmental authority to decree and establish all that He asks us.

As I saw this fire, I knew that it that could only be contained by the hand of the Lord and the completion of the work of refinement in our lives. There is a yielding to this fire that changes us and raises the standard of the fear of the Lord in our lives.

Then I saw these widespread fires coming together into one single fire; it appeared more like a massive single flame. When this happened I saw something come out of Heaven that had the appearance of a clear “glass chimney”; such as you would put upon an oil light or lantern. As this glass chimney came down upon this single flame (which was birthed from the Refiner’s fire) and fully encircled it- suddenly, it was a glorious lamp or light to the whole world.

As this happened I heard the words, “Now is the time. This is the new beginning.”

As I shared this dream and visionary encounter with a group of international leaders, there was agreement that we are in a time of great refinement— even discipline. The Lord disciples those that He loves. Just as a parent disciplines their child because they love them and want to see them walk in an upright manner, in integrity and in godly character— so the Lord disciplines His sons and daughters so that we might be entrusted through the refinement of our actions, integrity and character to carry spiritual authority that changes earthly things.

One person shared that this refinement is not merely dealing with issues of “right and wrong” but it is narrowing the flexibility in what the Lord is permitting and what He no longer is allowing. More like a standard being raised. Of course a refining fire will deal with blatant sin and compromise of truth but this is touching many leaders to “put away childish things” and to walk in a way worthy of our call.

The Lord has sent this fire because He loves us. He is disciplining us because He has a great call for us to walk in. He is preparing us so that we can be entrusted with that call. And, He is drawing us together to produce one holy flame that He can put this glass chimney upon for the sake of His Ecclesia being the “light on a hill”; a bright light in the time of gross darkness. We will emerge as His lamp.

If you are facing refinement then know this— you are not alone. Yield to His fire and let it purify your heart and your life. Allow it to burn away all compromise and concessions that lead to compromises. These may not be “wrong” things as much as things that are not aligned with the call of God upon your life or the standard that He is calling you to live in.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭

It’s Time to Bring Down Heaven to Earth

By Kathi Pelton

Last night I had a brief, yet profound (and completely unexpected), encounter during a time of worship. Suddenly, I found myself in the third heaven and I was looking out upon the “Crystal Sea” or “Sea of Glass” that is before the throne. I have never seen anything like this before. The sapphire blue was breathtaking and endless; and the sky (horizon) was like fire and reflected His eyes. The stillness upon this sea was far beyond “the lack of a storm or waves”- it was a sovereign stillness and peace that carried great power that saturation the entire atmosphere. It was as if a great “weightiness” was upon the peace— a weighty peace.

As I stood there, looking out upon it, Lord asked me, “Would you like to walk upon it?” He took my hand (though I never saw His face— only heard His voice and felt His hand take mine) and He walked me out a short distance upon this crystal sea of glass. I don’t know how to describe what I saw but over this immense sea the sky had what I can only describe as both the sunrise and sunset happening simultaneously. Actually all of the colors from the beginning to end of morning and evening somehow were intermingled and the sea and sky reflected it all. I knew that His face was the source of these colors and that all of heaven reflected His image, His power, and His beauty. The weight of peace and rest on this sea and in this place was an experience I will never forget. It was the most powerful stillness I’ve ever encountered and yet it was such a brief moment that I was there.

I wanted to share this with you because of what happened next. As I was taking in this peace and beauty the Lord said to me, “Did you know that you can bring this peace from heaven down to earth?”

After He spoke those words, I was immediately back in the room in Washington DC where we were worshiping and praying. I knew that we had the authority to take this weighty peace and see it come into the earthly realm.

We have received many warnings that when President Trump announces the Supreme Court nominee that it will be like a civil war in our streets and nation. But as many of us have prayed, we’ve felt peace that makes no sense in the midst of warnings. I felt that God was giving us permission to ask for the peace that resides in heaven (coming from His throne) to come upon Washington DC, upon our nation, and upon our households. It is like a blanket of peace that comes down to intercept the plans of the enemy.

It reminded me of how people with anxiety disorders will use a “weighted blanket” to calm them. This was like a heavenly weighted blanket that would bring peace and rest to the anxieties and fears that produce anger and violence. It holds supernatural peace and rest that calms the chaos.

From this encounter I feel that we can all begin to bring heaven to earth for the sake of our nations, for our households, for our individual lives. All sin that has been brought in repentance to Jesus, is cleansed by His blood and put under the “sea of forgetfulness.” Where there is absence of sin there is manifest peace and order. The Lord has put our sin into the sea of forgetfulness and given us this “sea of glass” (peace, rest, and stillness) in it’s place.

A remnant of His people have been repenting on behalf of the United States and bringing our sins before the throne of God to be washed by the blood of Jesus. Our sins are being thrown into the sea of forgetfulness and a “sea of glass”— His peace and presence is being offered in its place.

I don’t know how this will manifest on earth— possibly it will bring a distinction by resting on His Ecclesia (making us a refuge) or maybe it will stop the chaos and violence that the enemy is stirring up in our streets and cities? I only know that Jesus said, “You can bring this down to earth.”

I don’t want to interpret the full meaning but I do want to bring the experience to you so that you can enter in and add your faith to it. You can declare and ascend by the power of the Spirit in order to bring back this sovereign and weighty peace.

On earth as it is in Heaven!

God Will Do For You What You Cannot Do For Yourself

By Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me people who were lying in bed with their minds filled with anxious thoughts that led them to conclusions of dread and doom for the days ahead. But the Father came to comfort them saying,

“Do not fear, do not worry, and do not dread the days ahead for I will do for you what you cannot do for yourself. You can trust me.”

As the people responded in confident trust, the gripping fear washed away and peace restored them to rest in His promises.

If you are being driven by fear and anxious thoughts then the Lord wants you to hear His words of truth and words of hope. He is not unaware of what you are facing and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself.

Your sleepless nights that lead your thoughts down dead-end roads and hopeless prospects are being exchanged for the deep sleep of a baby in its mother’s arms and the thoughts that bring your hopes into a vast space with abundance before you.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

You will lie down in peace and wake up in joy because the Lord has taken up your cause! Though you have not been able to find your way though the tangled net that you are caught in, watch now: the Lord will rescue you.

I declare peace over you, peace over your mind and peace over your body. Though you don’t feel adequate or able to find your way out of the place that you find yourself in, know this: He is able to rescue you!

“Such is the confidence and steadfast reliance and absolute trust that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficiently qualified in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency and qualifications come from God.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:4-5‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Christ qualifies you for success, for breakthrough and for a positive outcome. It is in yielding your life to the place of “absolute reliance and trust through Christ toward God” that your confidence is restored and you are saved.

Have you ever seen a wild deer caught in barbed wire fencing? It will flail in fear only to find itself held tighter in the snare’s grip. When rescuers come to free the deer they must hold it still in order to free it and keep it from greater harm. The Lord is holding you still and cutting away the barbs and snares that you find yourself caught in. Do not fear for He is with you and freeing you from the tangled snare that you are caught in. He will heal your wounds and He will do for you what you cannot do for yourself!

Be calm, be still and watch to see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf.

It Is Time To Get Drenched in the Favor of God

By Kathi Pelton

Last week I went on a sunny prayer walk with my dear friend. As we walked and prayed we began to declare the heavens to open up over the earth and as we did a cloud appeared over us and the rain began to pour. Of a matter of fact it poured so hard that we became absolutely drenched! The next day I received a message from a friend who lives in Switzerland. She had gone out for a sunny day bike ride and felt to pray for me. When she did it began to rain on her with such force that her message said, “I was drenched!” She had no idea what had happened to me the previous day. This morning when I woke up I heard the Spirit speak to me and say, “Tell My people to get ready to be drenched in My favor!”

The Word of God is such a rich resource of wisdom and ways to live by. God’s teaching leads us upon paths of joy and favor. Throughout scripture we are exhorted to trust the Lord and to keep all of His ways (His decrees and commands). Blessings, favor and even long life follow those who submit their lives to His Word.

In Proverbs 3 we are given many instructions on how to live and all of the blessings that follow us as we do so. The first verses begins with an instruction that has a beautiful promise attached to them,

“My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commands; for they will bring you many days, a full life, and well-being.” Proverbs 3:1-2

According to the dictionary, “well-being” is defined as the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. I don’t know anyone who does not want comfort, health and happiness!

But there is so much more,

“Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. THEN you will find favor and high regard in the sight of God and man.”

Often dogs are known as “loyal.” A great example of this is with our youngest son and his dog, Kiera. He has had his dog since he was a young teenager and she is so loyal and faithful to him. This past year, my son had to move out on his own (into a small apartment) and he was working very long days. Since Kiera is a large dog he would return home and find that she was not doing well cooped up in an apartment alone for so many hours. She wasn’t eating and seemed depressed. Some friends of his fiancée (now bride) offered to let his dog live with them on their acreage until our son has a different living situation.

Though it was a hard decision to make, he knew that this was best for his loyal pup. It has now been about seven months that she has lived with this couple (who spoils her and loves her) and yet, when our son goes to visit her she will run to him with howls of delight and lay on top of his feet the entire time he is there. Why, because she is loyal to him! Though others feed her, love her, walk her and spend all day with her— her loyalty is still with our son. She would rather be with him then anyone else; just sitting at his feet brings her comfort and happiness.

Oh, that we would have such loyalty to God. If only all of His sons and daughters would find such joy and comfort in sitting at His feet and spending time with Him, the church would be a more beautiful place. But the reality is that many treat spending time with Him like a chore or heavy burden but that is because they have yet to discover the beautiful bond of loyalty with Him. And— it is loyalty that produces faithfulness!

Let’s go on with Proverbs 3. The next verses say this,

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways; and He will guide you on the right paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Just as my son’s dog would follow him anywhere, so should our trust, loyalty and faithfulness cause us to follow Him upon the paths He leads us down— even when we do not understand! When God asked our family to move this past January from our home on the West Coast to the Washington DC region, we had NO understanding of why. Yet, we have discovered that as we trust Him and follow Him down the paths He leads us on that they surely are revealed as “the right path.” They don’t always feel good or right at first but as we remain at His feet we find favor with God and man in the places that He leads us to. Our trust is in HIM not in a place or a particular path.

Proverbs 3 does not end with verse 6 but goes on for 35 verses that give instructions, wisdom and all that we gain as we follow His teachings. They are wealth to our lives. Promises such as, “He blesses the home of the righteous…”

There is a need for God’s people to be walking in the supernatural favor that is offered to us now more than ever before. The favor of God will do more to help us than any college degree, employment resume or gift. When the favor with man is added to the favor of God then we see a partnership with heaven and earth that begins to open up doors that we could have never imagined.

I believe that there is a setting apart of those who trust the Lord with all their heart and who will become loyal and faithful to all of His ways. Lukewarmness is being revealed as unbelief and disloyalty; yet, in the love and mercy of God He is imploring (making an earnest or desperate appeal) to those who are lukewarm to become fully faithful and loyal to all of His ways. He longs to bless them with favor and happiness! He desires to lead them on right paths and to pour out His favor upon them. What a loyal and faithful God we serve!

When we have favor we receive beyond what is normal or even due. I am constantly overwhelmed by the favor with God and man that has been given to me. It is so beyond what is due and yet He rewards my trust and faithfulness. Often I am in awe of the benefits of His favor; knowing that there are many that are more qualified for what He allows me to do. He rewards my trust in Him more than He looks at my qualifications. He knows that I will follow Him and will be loyal to Him.

Favor is the key that will open more doors for you than any gift or qualification that you will ever have. Your talents, your good looks, your degrees (education), your determination and your persuasiveness are lost in the crowd of others a million other similarly qualified people; but the favor of God (and man) will trump them all!

Ephesians 2:8 tells us, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” Grace is favor and God’s favor is the power that changes things for us!

God’s favor is resting upon His sons
and daughters in this hour! Trust Him with all your heart and nurture loyalty even when you do not understand! He is looking for those who do not need to be put on a leash to follow Him but who will follow because they’ve “tied loyalty and faithfulness around their neck” and will never leave His side.

Favor is about to drench the faithful!!

De-Crowning Corona

By Kathi Pelton

On Saturday night I either had a dream or a spiritual encounter in the middle of the night where the church rose up to de-crown and dethrone the Corona virus which caused it to lose the authority to rule and spread.

In this dream/encounter two things happened; we removed the rule or crown of the virus and we decreed the One in Revelation 19:12 as King,

“His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself.”
‭‭
As we declared that Jesus is the One King with many crowns— the virus bowed down and began to shrivel up and die. As long as it wore this demonic crown to rule over the nations (which really is a demonic power/principality that has a self-appointed crown) it controlled people, nations, times and seasons over the earth; serving the plans of the enemy. But as the Church— the Ecclesia— took her place of authority to remove the crown, which removed its throne of rulership and restored all rule, all authority and all dominion over the nations to the One with many crowns— Jesus Christ, then the powers that used this virus to rule with were dethroned and decrowned.

A more appropriate name for this virus and the powers that rule over it is Absalom! It is a self-appointed crown that seeks to rule. But there is only One who sits on the throne to rule over the nations with justice, righteousness and mercy: the One with many crowns, Jesus!

This virus wears the “mask” of a king but it is an imposter that seeks to silence and mask the Ecclesia from releasing the sound of deliverance. It seeks rulership and power but we declare that all power and authority belongs to Christ Jesus alone! No other power but His! No other king but the Lion of Judah!

Let’s declare aloud that Jesus Christ, the one with blazing eyes of fire, the one with many crowns, the one whose robe is dipped in blood and whose title is Word of God and “Faithful and True”— is the only One we crown. He is the One true king that every king, every ruler, and all creation will bow before. All other crowns must be cast down and the crown of Corona is not only removed but is trampled under the feet of the armies of heaven.

His eyes of blazing fire are about to look down upon the armies of darkness and oppression to send them into confusion, chaos, and defeat.

Arise, King of Kings— now, may Your enemies be scattered and destroyed.

A Dream About Washington D.C.

By Kathi Pelton

In May of 2019 I was in Washington DC with the Awaken the Dawn family for a gathering. During my first night there I had a dream about Washington DC and our nation that was so real and vivid that it shifted everything in my life. I have not shared it before now publicly.

The Dream-

In this dream I found myself standing in a large room in Washington DC and when I looked around I saw Christian ministry leaders that I know from all across the world. I saw leaders from Israel, Germany, Japan, Canada, England, Egypt and many other nations. I was completely surprised to see them with me in Washington DC. I turned to them and said, “Why are you here?”

The leader from Germany looked at me and said, “The Lord came to each one of us and said to us, ‘You must go and stand with the United States in this hour. If the United States doesn’t make it then your nation will not make it.’”

Then many of the leaders began to tell me how they were told to “bring their trust in God” and pour it into America. As they spoke about pouring their trust in God unto our nation I was immediately taken in the spirit over the national mall in DC.

It was night and nothing was lit. No monuments, no buildings— not even the Capitol Building— and the streets and national mall were void of people. It was dark and void of life.

Then I heard the sound of these international men and women, along with those from the United States, begin to release the sound of “In God We Trust” and as they did this the entire national mall lit up— but with a light so bright that it wasn’t just “lights coming on” but a glory that shone so brightly that it glowed with a brilliance that I’d never seen before.

Then an enormous silver coin appeared over Washington DC that was blank. As the sound of the nations and our nation continued releasing this “sound of trust in God” suddenly this illuminated view of the national mall appeared upon the coin with the same brilliance as it was on the ground and after it was imprinted in the coin suddenly the illuminated words, “IN GOD WE TRUST” appeared upon this enormous coin. I knew that something had been established and restored as these international leaders came to stand with us. This coin remained hovering over DC.

As I woke up, I immediately felt that this would actually happen— men and women from many nations will be asked by the Lord to come and stand with us in a time of great darkness to restore our trust in God.

In May 2019 when I had this dream I didn’t understand why it felt as though this would occur soon because our nation “appeared” to be in such a strong place. Now, a year later— I have much greater understanding.

This dream also was the trigger that the the Lord used for asking our family and ministry to move to the Washington DC region from the West Coast. We were told we must be here as 2020 began so we arrived in January.

I believe that the enemy is trying to take our nation down in order to trigger a domino effect in many other nations destruction. I know that many say, “As the United States goes, so goes the nations.” I have heard that for many years and it is not in any national arrogance or pride that I repeat it; but rather because in this dream these international church leaders spoke those words to me.

I am yearning and praying that at the right time that the Spirit of the Lord would speak to our international family and ask them to come to our nations capital to stand with us and to bring their trust.

The unifying of many nations with our nation would heal so many wounds. I have traveled the nations and have wept many times as I heard great hatred spoken (sometimes screamed) about our nation— even by Christians. God is bringing a John 17:20-23 movement and global “oneness” within His Ecclesia. We must forgive, repent and love our neighbor as ourselves.

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “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.”
‭‭John‬ ‭17:20-23‬ ‭

Last night on the drive home from the 4th of July fireworks we pulled up behind a car with a Virginia license plate with the words upon it, “In God We Trust” and the American flag waving. The license plate letters and numbers said this, “KATHI17” (I wish I had gotten a photo!!). What!?!?!

I immediately knew that God was speaking to me on our 2020 Independence Day regarding this dream. I believe that one day, and one day soon— the nations will come and gather with us in Washington DC; oneness and trust will bring the glory of the Lord to illuminate our nation and restore it to trust in God again. I believe that this “coin” will be given to the nations as a gift and a prophesy for their nation to be restore as well. This may also represent that the US will bring about an economic restoration for the nations as we turn back to God. A coin can also be a symbol of “change!”

“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”

The Echo

By Kathi Pelton

For many days now I have been hearing the word, “Echo.” Of a matter of fact I hear it and see it so often that it has now become like an echo in my ears. When I hear a word that repetitively I must stop and ask the Lord, “What are you saying?” So I did.

As I waited upon the Lord I was first led to look up the meaning of the word.

Echo: a repetition of sound produced by the reflection of sound waves from a wall, mountain, or other obstructing surface. a sound heard again near its source after being reflected.

When sound hits a hard surface or obstruction an echo is created as the sound waves bounce back near the source— we truly seem to have hit a mountain or obstruction globally and it is causing a great echo.

As I prayed I was taken to Hebrews 11 and heard the words,

“The echo of faith from the saints of old, who believed in Yahweh, has joined with the faith of those who believe today. The sound of old and sound of the new has become one clear echo which is a battering ram against the opposition that seeks to kill, steal and destroy. Mountains will come down!”

Hear are some of the words from Hebrews 11,

“All these people died still believing what God had promised them. They did not receive what was promised, but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it. They agreed that they were foreigners and nomads here on earth.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:13‬ ‭

The great cloud of witnesses are watching the faith that they stood in long ago and the faith that we stand in converge as a sound that will echo through the earth today and through eternity. The intermingling of their faith and our faith is creating a frequency of sound that will break the barriers! It is the sound of those who stood in faith, walked by faith, persevered in faith and by faith took down mountains!

Let faith arise in this hour! Let it arise like never before. Grab hold of the same faith that Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived and died in! Let it become intermingled with your faith and the sound of your “yes.” Break the sound barrier of accusation and opposition and may the echo bring the fortified wall tumbling down as in the days of Jericho.

Pray, worship, prophesy, declare His Word aloud and let your feet go forth in faith! Release the sound of faith!

There will be another sound that echoes through the land and that is the sound of the enemy armies crying out in distress,

“The nations will hear of your devastating defeat. your cries of distress will echo throughout the earth. In the panic of their flight one soldier will trip over another and both of them will fall down defeated.” Jeremiah 46:12

Jesus already secured our victory! We know the end of the story and though we see the nations raging and darkness is seen on the earth— the faith of the saints of old and the faith that you live by will echo throughout eternity and will be a battering ram against the armies of darkness. His defeat is as sure as your victory.

Stir up faith. Don’t hide, don’t back down and don’t be found silent. Let the sound of the men and women of faith be heard throughout the earth!
