Washington, D.C. Ministry Update— and More!

After our week in the capital of Canada (Ottawa, Ontario) to be a part of the Watchmen for the Nations “As One” gathering and to pray on Parliament Hill, we headed to Washington, D.C. to pray in our capital city.

Stopping In Gettysburg to pray along the way was a surprise request from the Lord but turned out to be a powerful time.

After arriving in DC we have gone to numerous places to pray together; the Lincoln Memorial, Viet Nam Memorial Wall, David’s Tent, Arlington National Cemetery, The US Capitol, US Archives and the Supreme Court.

Yesterday we gathered with Bound for Life and did a “Silent Siege” for the unborn at the US Supreme Court. After the silent siege we prayed and took communion together.

Tomorrow we will be speaking at a church just outside of DC in Virginia. We are looking forward to connecting with more of the body of Christ in this area.

On the 20th we will leave for Fredericksburg, Virginia to prepare for the Awaken the Dawn National Prayer Gathering with Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Brian Francis Hume, David Bradshaw and others. Please pray that all the the Lord has on His heart for this time will be accomplished. The gathering is August 22-24.

Once again we want to give you the opportunity to invest in the fulfillment of this prayer journey that we have been on along with many others who have prayed and stood with us in financial support. We stepped out in faith to say “yes” to the Lord’s request for us to go on this lengthy journey that spans two nations and many states and provinces. Thank you for stepping out with us– we know that your reward will be great!

Thank you for the continued prayers and to invest into this ongoing journey, you can go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

Humility & Trust Will Establish You

by Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord woke me up in the middle of the night speaking to me about “establishing a remnant that walks in humility and trust.” I turned over and the clock read 3:12 and I knew that He was speaking to me out of Zephaniah 3:12,

“Those who are left will be the lowly and humble, for it is they who trust in the name of the Lord.”

God is dealing with pride, the strength of men, the unjust power of men, boasting and wickedness throughout the nations. We will see the “judgements” against the arrogant play out as the days go by. But, for those who are humble and contrite and for those who have put their full trust in the Lord (His remnant); they will be strengthened, He will prosper them and He will show His kindness to them (Zeph. 2:7). In their weakness, He will show Himself strong and mighty.

For those who have turned away from the Lord or who have turned to trusting in their own strength, there is an invitation to return to Him as their “stronghold of hope.”

“Seek the Lord, all who are humble, and follow his commands. Seek to do what is right and to live humbly. Perhaps even yet the Lord will protect you— protect you from his anger on that day of destruction.” Zephaniah‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭

God loves the humble but in His righteousness He opposes the proud. I believe that what has prevented the remnant of God’s people from “dwelling together in unity” and prevented the glory of the Lord that comes from the oneness share by God (John 17:21-24) is residual pride. We all should be asking the Lord to rid us of the stumbling block of pride that causes men to fall and our brothers to stumble as we run together.

I continue to hear in my spirit the word, “preference.” Over and over I will hear it and see the full circle and unbroken fellowship of the Father, Son and Spirit. It is perfect and divine preference that yields to the other in absolute unity. Preference is like a rhythm that releases the glory of the Lord.

We cannot allow national pride, judgements, personal pride, boasting or our strength to lead us onward. We must humble ourselves in personal relationships and in corporate relationships. We must lay down our prejudices against one another and pick up preferences!

Just last week my youngest son had a believer speak a word of judgment on the basis of him being “American”. Though he is sensitive in his spirit, he is not emotionally frail in any way— yet, his spirit was so grieved, not for him as an American, but for the break in oneness that this judgement carried, which is so precious to the Lord. It left him in tears and deep intercession.

We must humble ourselves and lay down judgements and boastfulness. We must ask the Lord to examine our hearts and give us humility. Our strength and trust is to be in Him alone. He will judge the proud but as He does that He will exult the humble with authority and strength that brings great light in the midst of darkness and shaking.

Humility and trust will establish you and cause His kindness to be poured out upon you. This is the hour to pray for the washing away of pride and self-sufficiency so that He will be exulted in the nations.

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”” Luke‬ ‭14:11‬ ‭

God Says, “You’re About to Harvest The Crops From The Seeds You Have Previously Sown.”

by Kathi Pelton

Many of you have been sowing seeds for years; financial seeds, gospel seeds, prayer seeds, relational seeds and seeds of declarations from the Word of God. You have wondered if you would ever see the fruit or grain from those seeds come forth. I heard the Lord say that many are about to see a great harvest come forth from the seeds that you have previously sown.

My husband and I directed a house of prayer for many years with more hours of prayer and worship than either of us could possibly count. We traveled around the nations in obedience to God’s longing for the nations— spending countless dollars, we’ve moved thirty times and left friends and family to follow Him. We are not alone in this journey— many of you have sown, sacrificed and given all that you have on earth to follow Him. Although these things were not done for a personal reward but for the sake of Jesus receiving His full inheritance, I hear Him saying that many seeds will suddenly yield a great crop that you will get to eat from.

We had the honor of praying over a couple that has given the past sixteen years to the Lord as they directed a house of prayer. They are in the midst of transition (like so many others) and we saw all the prayers that had been prayed over the past sixteen years as seeds that went forth and they were now standing before a massive wheat field to go and harvest. As we prayed for them, our team heard the verses,

““The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” Isaiah‬ ‭55:10-11‬ ‭

The winter season has watered your seed and now grain has grown and fruit has been produced. Prosperity is upon the seeds that you have sown. The winter months with storms have watered your seed. Watch now as you are about to step into the harvest fields from the seeds that you have sown; especially in prayer!

Isaiah 55 goes on to say this,

“You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.”” Isaiah‬ ‭55:12-13‬ ‭

The harvest will honor the name of the Lord! You will live in peace and joy as you watch His Word prosper all around you. In the midst of great darkness there will be great joy for those who have put their trust in the Lord. You did not sow in vain! All that you’ve done for the Lord will bear fruit.

Thank you and we decree an abundant harvest upon your seed!

He Will Establish Your Steps!

by Kathi Pelton

One of my favorite verses is from Proverbs 16:9,

“The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.”

This is a promise to all His sons and daughters! In the midst of being those who merely “see in part” and then make our plans according to partial seeing and understanding; we are assured that the Lord will step in to establish our steps! This is such an incredible revelation of a truth that brings us both peace and rest from striving or anxious thoughts.

I have watched the Lord interrupt my plans with the establishment of His steps for my life so many times. I have learned to rest in the assurance that “if I get it wrong” that He will intervene and establish my steps according to His perfect will. We obey and make our plans according to the best of our hearing and understanding; then we can rest and rely upon Him to establish those steps.

I’ve shared the following story before but it’s worth repeating. Three years ago my son-in-law, Luke, called me to ask me to pray for him. He had some huge decisions to make that were causing him a lot of anxiety. He wanted to be a faithful son to God and husband to our daughter by making the right decisions. As I went to prayer I heard the Lord speak to me saying,

“Tell Luke that he cannot miss!”

To be honest, I didn’t believe I heard right! I know my Father’s voice but these words didn’t seem right. I pondered about all of the ways we can “miss God!” I prayed again and heard the exact same words. This happened three times. Finally, I said to the Lord,

“If this is You, I need it confirmed through Your Word!”

Immediately I heard the verse from Proverbs 16:9. Then He said,

“Kathi, when you commit your plans to Me, I promise to establish your steps. The ones who do this can’t miss!”

This was so freeing! It not only became a word of assurance for my son but for my life as well. He was able to make a decision based on what he felt was right in his heart and we have watched God establish his steps in the most profound ways since that time.

Today, my husband and I set off on another “walk by faith, not by sight” ministry journey (I’m writing this in a plane at 35,000 feet). This particular journey took a lot of planning and a lot of faith. When resistance came we sought the Lord and continued with our plans according to the understanding of our hearts and His promise to establish our steps. Even the provision of this journey was resisted but we heard, “Go forward and watch me establish your steps and the provision as you go.”

Yesterday, we miraculously had provision come in to begin the journey and then this morning we woke up at 3 a.m. to catch an early flight only to find that more provision had come forth from a “spiritual son”. Then, as we were boarding the plane more came through. It was as if our steps were splashing favor and blessing upon us as we walked forward. Isn’t our Father faithful!!

I share this with you to encourage you! We know that the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophesy; therefore may our testimony prophesy over your plans and steps. As you commit your plans to Him, He will surely establish your steps. You can’t miss! Just as we stepped forward, not seeing what was needed but hearing to go forth (then within the first 24-hours we saw provision establish our steps), so the same will happen for you.

We have watched this happen for over twenty years now but it has been happening for God’s people from the days of Noah, Abraham and all those who committed their plans to the Lord.

He will establish your steps so do not fear making your plans. You will watch as divine redirections, interruptions and supernatural resources touch the path you walk on. Your steps will slash favor and blessing upon you as you step forth in the assurance of His faithfulness.

He is so, so good!

It Is Done!

by Kathi Pelton

This morning I woke up out of my sleep prophesying the words, “It is done!” I don’t recall what I was dreaming but it didn’t feel like a dream but rather the Spirit of the Lord prophesying over battles, over prayers, over people and over nations. As the words, “It is done!” came forth from my mouth I began to see the finished work of the cross that secured victory coming upon so many things. Then the words repeated again and again…”It is done, it is done, it is done….prophesy, IT IS DONE!”

I then began to prophesy over my natural family, over my spiritual family, over my city and my nation the words, “It is done!” I prophesied over the fight to end abortion, over the lost and into the atmosphere…It is done! As I prophesied these words, my faith began to rise and authority began to flow from deep within my spirit. The words contained the victory that Jesus obtained when He spoke the words, “It is finished!”

Whatever need you have, whatever battle you are facing, whatever loved one you are carrying and whatever prayer you are praying; I prophesy over that thing and over that person, “It is done!” Join with me and declare the victory and finished work that prophesies the victorious outcome.

Prophesy over the salvation of your sons and daughters, “It is done!” Prophesy over the full manifestation of provision for your personal needs, “It is done!” Prophesy over the battle for the lives of the unborn to be protected, “It is done!” Prophesy over areas of darkness that need the light of Jesus, “It is done!”

Stir up faith and let the words awaken you to reach in faith for the victory that was sealed in the words Jesus spoke when He said, “It is finished!” Death was swallowed up in victory and His words resound over you today just as clearly as they did two thousand years ago. Don’t hold back and don’t back down; let faith arise and let your mouth prophesy the victory!

An Amazing Dream I Had Last Night… “Blessed Assurance” or “Blessed Insurance”

by Kathi Pelton

I had a vivid but unusual dream last night. In the dream I was seeking to find an insurance policy that would cover my “faith”. I knew that my life was at a high risk point regarding what I was stepping into and wanted insurance in case something happened and we were left with losses. Suddenly a package arrived for me and I opened it; as soon as I held it in my hands I knew that it had sent from Jesus. When I opened it I found that it contained a scroll or rolled up document. As I unrolled it I saw writing on the header of this document that said, “Assurance Policy” It was an not an insurance policy but an assurance policy that gave me a written guarantee that my faith was being covered by His declaration of promised provision. I took it out and signed it before waking up. 
What an amazing dream! I was seeking “insurance” (a guaranteed compensation of loss) and He gave me “assurance” (a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise.). 
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
The Greek word for assurance can be translated to mean “concrete”. It is the foundation or concrete proof of something we can stand upon. Therefore this “Assurance Policy” was my concrete proof or promise that there will not be a need for an insurance policy that compensates for loss. What a “blessed assurance” this dream was to me! 
Often, our view of loss and God’s view of loss differ. I was speaking to a group of young adults this week about the subject of God’s faithfulness and asked them if their definition of His faithfulness was based on what they think the outcome of a particular matter should look like. I gave the example of someone praying for a loved one who is ill and ends up dying. I asked them if the faithfulness of God remains true in the midst of what we would see as a great loss. They determined that, “Yes!” His faithfulness remains sure even when we don’t understand. 
I share this not to dampen the word of “assurance” but to break off of many the restraints and strongholds of disappointment that have come through defining His faithfulness by a particular outcome that may have measured His faithfulness. Let us declare and determine (over our past, our present and our future) that is faithfulness is immeasurable, irrevocable and irrefutable! 
“Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created.” Psalm 119:90
Our faith is bound and secured by His faithfulness. His faithfulness is our “assurance policy” in the midst of all that we face and all that we experience. There are no losses with Christ because in Him there is eternal and immeasurable reward. He is worth every risk, every act of faith, every “Yes” spoken, every sacrifice made and every life lived fully unto Him. 
We do not need an insurance policy to back up our faith…we have been given  a “assurance policy” that declares a promise of His faithfulness from generation to generation. 
“God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6
We will receive a great and eternal reward for not holding back but giving our all. There are no losses…
“Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” Deuteronomy 5:33
I will end with the first stanza from the song, “Blessed Assurance”, 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

His Presence Changes Everything

by Kathi Pelton

What an amazing reality to know that when you wake up each morning that His presence is right there with you. Then, when you lay down at night He remains present— and in every moment throughout each day.

When I was a young believer and newly married I got up one morning to see my young husband prostate on the floor in prayer. I could tell that he was weeping and I was deeply moved by the tenderness in my husband’s heart. When he finally got up from the floor I looking at his tear stained face and said,

“Wow, you must have had a powerful time with Jesus!”

He shocked me because he responded by saying, “No, I wasn’t able to breakthrough into His presence.”

I stood before him utterly confused because I had read the verse from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 that says,

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

I had only been a believer a short time but I was sure that we didn’t have to “breakthrough into His presence!” Somewhere in my young husband’s sensitive conscience and desire to “be holy” he had come to believe that he had to work to gain access into the presence of God; the enemy was only too happy to convince him that he’d never done enough to arrive (thankfully, God set him free of that lie!).

We may have to “strive to enter into rest”; not because we have to earn it but because we have to train our souls to surrender to trust and peace; but His presence is with us always. He’s not absent, distant, mad or critical— He waits, watches and does not ever waver in His faithfulness to be with us always.

The knowledge that He is always with me and His Spirit (which is Him!) dwells within me changes everything. The God who spoke the entirety of creation into existence is with us always! There is nothing that you will go through or face alone. NOTHING!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2

You continually have all that you need because He is with you. Your comforter, deliverer, provider, protector, friend, warrior, counselor, teacher, helper, lover, King and Savior is present with you day and every night. Not because you did anything to earn it but because His death on the cross tore the veil that separated us. It is grace that opened up the way. He paid the full price for His presence to be opened up to us. We can boldly and confidently go before His throne!

I want to say it again…HIS PRESENCE CHANGES EVERYTHING!! He is before you, behind you and beside you. He’s been where you are going and He’s been where you have already gone.

I am continually in awe when I look back on my life at how at every turn He’s prepared the way for me. Of course I’ve faced my share of hard times and even seasons of deep grief, but He was always present to comfort me and make a way through the wilderness. The older I get the more I can look back on my own journey as a living testimony that declares, “He has never left me, nor forsaken me!”

I woke up today with such a tangible awareness of His presence with me and around me. It filled me with such expectation of wondering what He will do next— because everything changes in His presence!

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

What amazing and unfathomable thing will He surprise us with today? Yesterday He surprised dear friends of ours with a testimony that left me in such awe! When I heard the testimony of what God did, I wanted to run into the arms of Jesus and embrace Him for being so very good and faithful. His faithfulness toward them overflowed onto me like a flood of joy.

He is with you and in His presence is joy (Ps. 16:11) , peace and rest (Ex. 33:14), refreshing (Acts 3:20-21), help (John14:26), wisdom and instruction (Ps. 25:5-9), mercy and grace (Heb. 4:16), salvation (Zep. 3:17), justice (Ps. 37:5-6), fruitfulness (Jer. 17:7-8)…and so much more!

Release His presence into all that is around you…and watch as it changes everything.

You Will Prosper and Abound

By Kathi Pelton

Each Friday I write a prayer and declaration for a ministry organization that we are a part of. Today, as I wrote the declaration, I felt to share it with you as well.

God is dealing with the opposition and resistance that has come against His people. He is giving you a “spirit of overcoming” as you stand firm in His Word as absolute truth. Put all doubt, fear and unbelief under your feet and declare the words below. Break the cycles of wavering between two opinions according to circumstances and stand firm and unwavering upon His truth and promises. Often the open doors that allows the “thief” to in come is a door of doubt. God is a god of abundance and we are being asked to close and lock the doors of doubt and wavering about His goodness.

Here is the prayer and declaration for you. Declare it everyday until you have overcome and until it repairs the gaps in wall around your life. It’s time to fortify the walls of truth that guard you.

Prayer and Declaration

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8

“ I prophesy out of 2 Corinthians 9:8, declaring that God’s abundant blessings will manifest upon me and my family. I say with confident assurance that me, my family and my household will have all that we need at all times. We will lack no good thing and the work of the Kingdom will not be hindered or thwarted by the opposition that comes in the form of lack.

The Spirit is speak saying that He will prosper my “Yes!” I say yes to Him once again and I say “Yes and amen” to His promise to prosper my “yes.”

I break all agreements with thoughts, expectation and fears of lack, doubt and poverty. I enter into the confident faith and assurance that God will abundantly bless me and my household with all that we need in each season so that we abound in every good work.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

I come to you Father right now, in both prayer and petition, bringing my requests for financial provision and supernatural resources, so that we all abound in every good work. I thank you that the promised provision of abundant blessings in all that I need is being made manifest even now. I also bring my prayers and petitions on behalf of every Kingdom work being done in the body of Christ before you. Thank you that the work will prosper and abound; lacking nothing but prospering in response to every yes! You are good and forever faithful to keep your promise and to bless the work of our hands. Thank you Father for your Son, for making us heirs of salvation and for being our help in times of trouble. -Amen-

Now go forth in praise and thanksgiving, knowing that He is the God of more than enough. You will overcome the cycles of wavering, doubt and lack. You will walk and live in the abundant life promised to you in John 10:10!

Important Update!

Dear Ministry Friends & Partners,

First, thank you all for standing with us, praying for us and supporting us in all that the Lord has asked us to do and the places He has asked us to go. It truly takes a “family” and you are that to us!

Our ministry and family has entered a time of great acceleration where we are seeing our young adult children sent out like arrows shot forth from our quiver. Dreams and prophetic words that we have carried for decades are suddenly coming upon us and upon our children.

God has put a deep call and longing in our hearts throughout the years to walk with the younger generation; to see them thrive in the midst of family. We live this out in our immediate family and with our spiritual sons and daughters locally, nationally and internationally.

Jeffrey and I have expanded our walk with the younger generation as we partner with the Awaken the Dawn movement (http://www.awakenthedawn.org/). This is a company and family of amazing Levite’s (musicians, prayer leaders and sold-out sons and daughters) that have given their “Yes” to the Lord to make the worth of Jesus known throughout our nation while hosting His presence in different states and cities. We are stepping in to carry the baton with them and to disciple them as they run. It is the fathers and mothers and sons and daughters running together as one family.

We will continue to be a part of our global team that is walking with many nations to see God’s family joined in the unity and oneness that Jesus prayed for in John 17:20-23. We also will continue to be the young adults pastors to our “Third Watch” young adults team here in Portland, Oregon that is part of the city transformation and focusing on Portland State University’s reformation.

Lastly, we will continue to encourage the body of Christ through our writings, prophesy, teachings and books. Inscribing the vision is one of our greatest passions.

Due to all that God is opening up before us, our travel schedule has increased immensely in this season. This has also increased our need for prayer and financial partners who will commit to support us on a monthly basis.

We would like to invite you to be a part of our ministry family by becoming a financial partner with us.

We need to raise an additional $4000 per month to cover travel expenses, ministry expenses and personal expenses as we give our full focus to the work of the Kingdom.

We are now preparing to have two months of continual travel throughout North America. We will be going to Idaho, Utah, Montana, Boston, Vermont, Ottawa (Canada), Washington DC, Virginia and further between now and September. If you would like to sow into this extended trip, we would be so very grateful.

If you believe in what we are doing and would like to become a ministry partner through prayer and monthly financial support; go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

You can set up an automatic monthly payment through pressing our donation button on the homepage. You can also write to us at: admin@inscribeministries.com to let us know that you have committed to partner with us.

We commit to pray for you and your loved ones. We will host quarterly ZOOM calls with our supporters so that we truly become “family” and can pray with you.

Thank you for your love and “yes” to Jesus! He has spoken to me clearly in this season by saying that He is “Prospering His people’s, ‘YES’.” We say, “Yes!”

With Love and Gratitude, Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton
