It Is Time to Put On the Garments of Praise

By Kathi Pelton

“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” Isaiah 61:3

2020 has been very difficult for many. Though God has come as light in the darkness for those who take refuge in him, it does not change the fact that all of the world, those who fear the Lord and those who do not, have been effected by all that has taken place in 2020.

We have all watched dear friends lose loved ones unexpectedly, lose jobs, lose homes, lose businesses…or maybe it is YOU who have lost one or one of these things this year. There is no shame in grieving. Grief does not reflect your faith or your trust in God. It merely says, “I have loved someone that I can no longer share my life with.” or “I labored for something that I believed in and it is no more.” There is grief that comes with losses and God asks us to grieve with those who grieve. And so we do!

Even as we grieve with those who grieve, it is right to put on “garments of praise” (even in the midst of loss or experiencing compassion on those who have lost). We have all lost something, even if it is just our rights and freedom to interact with friends or to enjoy looking into another’s face to see them smile. Though we have been forced to wear a mask on our physical body that reminds us all of this global pandemic, it is time to purposely and intentionally put on a spiritual garment that is called “praise!”

We have an eternal hope that gives us reason for praise in every season and circumstance. I have had seasons in my life of grief where I praised through the tears and it became of garment of peace in the midst of a storm. Praise became my refuge and fortress that took me above what my eyes could see.

Isaiah 61 goes on to say this,

Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”

Today these words from Isaiah 61 rang like a bell of triumph in my spirit. It was like an announcement from angelic hosts calling us to put on garments of praise because the faithfulness of the Lord is our reward and his everlasting covenant will be made known among the nations!

I had a vision of God’s people putting on the garments of praise and as they did, God supernaturally clothed them with heavenly garments of peace and favor that broke off heaviness and despair. This garment of peace was tangible to the point of giving supernatural strength to those who have grown weary. The garment of favor attracted both heaven and earth; bringing forth prosperity that touched every area imaginable.

It is time to let the words that conclude Isaiah 61 pour out of our mouths like a river of praise,

“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.”

Clothe yourself with garments of praise and watch what happens in the days to come!

Your “Yes” Will Prosper and Break Barriers!

by Kathi Pelton

I have had a very busy travel schedule this season and as I have been in many different places I have taken notice that a theme resounds every place that I go; it is the sound of sons and daughters giving their, “Yes” to the Lord.

This is not a subtle sound but a thundering sound of fully yielded hearts and surrendered lives. It is released in their prayers, their worship and their declarations like a thunderclap that echos through the atmosphere.

During the past few weeks I have had numerous visions and revelations regarding this sound and I’d like to share two of them with you.

In one, I saw the “Yes” being released from the individual voices and corporate gatherings going before the Lord. Their “Yes” was being funded by heavenly resources. As it was released on earth it was being touched with prosperity. Angels were bringing everything needed for their “Yes” to be accomplished. It was a heavenly partnership being fully funded by supernatural resources.

Next, I was taken into an encounter where I found myself at Calvary where Jesus was being nailed to the cross. I was completely overcome by the weight and magnitude of the weight of His surrender to such agony. Then, I heard the pounding of the nails as they pierced His hands and feet. He cried out in such excruciating pain but what I heard was “the yes of Jesus!” It was His yes to dying so that we might live. It resounded through the atmosphere of time like a great thunderclap. Each pound of the nails and cry of pain was like another thunderclap. Then I was taken back to the worship service that I was in where surrendered sons and daughters were shouting out their “Yes”; to die to self and live fully for Christ. Suddenly, the yes of Jesus 2000 years ago and the yes of His children now were being intermingled as one resounding YES! As it intermingled it went forth like a sonic boom! I saw it resound through the atmosphere worldwide. The sound waves went out like a “sound tsunami” that was building in strength and power. As it went forth I saw it spark revival everywhere it touched. I literally heard the “Yes” of new believers throughout the world that equaled “billions!” Not millions but billions of souls shouting their yes to Christ!

This is the hour of the YES! The years prior have prepared a people that would yield and surrender all for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His worth. The YES has begun already but I believe that it will hit a “critical mass” in 2020 creating this sonic boom that sends forth sound energy and waves of His glorious love and power.

The definition of a sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created whenever an object travelling through the air travels faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear. This is why I heard the sound of “Yes” in both encounters come as a thunderclap. This intermingled “yes” that merges the yes of Jesus when He died so that we might live and the yes of His sons and daughters to die to self so that He might live through them will break the sound barrier. It will release the sound that breaks down demonic barriers that have prevented ears from hearing the sound of His love and salvation.

Your yes is needed. Heaven is prospering your yes with supernatural resources and it is being intermingled with the sound of Jesus’ yes when He surrendered to the cross. It is the trip wire that will spark revival! It is the sound that breaks the barriers and releases a tsunami sound wave of revival that will harvest billions of souls.

Just say YES!

He Has Promised to Prosper You and Not Harm You

Kathi Pelton

God’s promises are real! Do you believe that? His promises of blessings and help are not just nice words to give you false hope but they are promises from God and He cannot lie!

Human hope is more of a “wish” than Biblical hope which is “assurance” but many believers live expecting adversity and lack and “hope” (wish for) a more positive outcome.

I had the privileged of spending a number of years as a part of Patricia King’s team in Kelowna, B.C., Canada. I think the one of the most powerful thing I received during those years was her constant conviction that said,

“If you put your faith out for lack that is what you will get but if you put your faith in His promises then you will receive what He has promised.”

Our family has spend many of years in full time ministry, being paid through the generosity of those who were moved by the Holy Spirit to support us. In the early days I would spend more time fretting and worrying that we would lack then believing what He promised. This was often how things ended up which reinforced my fear and doubts. It is where I put my “faith”. God dealt with me according to His love and did a deep work in my heart that moved me from fear to true faith. True faith releases the hope that assures the good result (fruit).

God walked me through a process that took my life from fear to peace. It is a peace that surpasses what my eyes see or my mind understands. It is a peace that is founded in the truth that it is my Father’s good pleasure to keep His promises and to bless me with all the benefits of being His daughter. It is not your Heavenly Father’s desire to harm you in any way…it is His great desire to bless you with every good and perfect gift.

One of the things that I discovered as He began to walk me out of the bondage of fear was to show me who He is as a Father. I was operating out of an orphan spirit; the poverty spirit is like conjoined twins with the orphan spirit. They walk hand in hand (or head to head); always believing that the Father seeks to punish, demand performance and then leave you suffering with lack, confusion and harm. The person with an orphan spirit deeply desires to be wanted and yet finds it inconceivable that they actually can be wanted or loved. The orphan spirit chains the believer to unbelief because it cannot coexist with the true love of the Father or the peace that comes from this truth. The poverty spirit easily coexists with the orphan spirit because they both are founded on lies, doubt, unbelief and hope deferred.

When I was set free from the orphan spirit the poverty spirit had to go as well. I began to KNOW and BELIEVE every promise of God. Rather than spend my nights in a sleepless state of trying to figure out how I would find my way out of constant pending disappointment and lack; I was able to lay my head down at night knowing that my Heavenly Father had everything I needed and even things that I desired for me. I didn’t have to have a back up plan or try to convince myself that God was good but somehow I was bad and deserved this treatment. My faith had been based on outcome; not His promises.

Do you dare to believe with the hope that assures that God (Your Father) desires to prosper you and not harm you? The Word of God is 100% truth! You can lay down tonight knowing that He will keep His promises.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

11 For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the Lord. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. 12 When you call out to me and come to me in prayer, I will hear your prayers. 13 When you seek me in prayer and worship, you will find me available to you. If you seek me with all your heart and soul, 14 I will make myself available to you,’ says the Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord says to you tonight, “My child, you can rest assured of my love and promises for good and not evil in your life. Only believe.”

The words “Rest Assured” means that you will receive the best of care…this is the truth!
