Receive the Rain!

By Kathi Pelton

“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:10-12

Throughout scripture rain symbolizes a blessing. It comes after a drought to give life and cause new growth. Even in the flood, rain came for forty days to wash sin away from the earth that the Lord had created. God’s people are about to see a “rain of blessings” and showers of cleansing come upon them. The past twelve months have been like living in a waiting room but there is a great roar from heaven that will thunder and release a downpour of blessings, suddenlies and breakthroughs upon you (physically, emotionally and spiritually). This will touch both the individual and the corporate remnant of God.

His voice will thunder in response to the intercession, the worship and the cries of his people. In the midst of waiting and amid a global drought his people have not ceased to declare, “Our God Reigns!” Watch as he responds with his reign! March will “Go out like a Lion” (see my word on The Elijah List) because there will be a mighty roar that sounds like thunder and releases the heavy rain of blessings as his word goes forth to accomplish all that he has purposed.

Even the earth will respond with songs from the mountaintops and trees that clap with joy. A renewed peace will lead his people in the way they should go and they too, will sing a new song and clap their hands in joy.

“…See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come away with me.” Song of Solomon 2:11-13

Though this verse says that the “rains are over and gone”— in this instance I hear the Spirit saying that the storms and gray skies that have blocked the Son are over and gone. The rains that are coming will reveal the blossoms, the early fruit and allow you to breathe in the fragrance of refreshing new life. You will run with him through the garden of life and among the orchards of fragrant fruits. You will find that he has set a table for you in the presence of your enemies. They will look and be ashamed while you feast upon the goodness of the Lord and rejoice of the intimacy that you share.

I prophesy and declare a heavy rain of blessings to come over your life and your household. I stand in agreement with the Lord for a continuous downpour that saturates your dry and barren land. I pray comfort, healing, cleansing and renewed joy upon you. May miracles mark the land of your life. May the early fruit that drips with sweetness satisfies your hunger and may the fragrance that is pleasing to your senses fill your nostrils. Breath it in while you taste and see that the Lord is good to you. The wilderness of waiting is about to turn into a green valley where still waters are always nearby to refresh you and cool you. Look up because your waiting has not been in vain.

Together we declare, “Our God Reigns!”

Abundant Rain, Super Bloom and Butterflies! Signs of a New Day!

by Kathi Pelton

Our family line has been in California for many generations but a few years ago the Lord asked us to leave the state and move to Oregon. We return for visits with our extended family often and this week was one of those visits. As we drove though the state the normally brown hills were now vibrant green; unlike we’d seen in many years. It was like a visual shout announcing, “The drought is over and abundant life has come and kissed our land.”

As we continued to drive we began to take notice of the amazing wildflowers (poppies, mustard, etc) in bloom throughout the vineyards and upon the rolling hills. Sunshine and rain clouds cast amazing light and shadows down on the land. I was looking at a physical manifestation upon the land that only happens when years of drought receive the downpour of an abundance of rain.

Then the Spirit said, “This is a picture in the natural of what My people will soon look like to all who see them.”

There has been a long spiritual drought for the body of Christ; no differently then the “Golden State” has experienced. But the abundance of rain has come and Spring is appearing upon the lives of His people.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

This abundance of rain upon a land that has experienced years of drought has caused what is being called a “super-bloom” in California, with hundreds of thousands of orange poppies carpeting the hills and meadows. The abundance of rain has caused plants to thrive, giving the “painted lady” caterpillars plenty of food to fuel their transformation (metamorphosis) into millions of orange and black butterflies taking flight. One butterfly enthusiast in California said that these butterflies seem very purposeful and undistracted in their migration flight pattern. They are quite directional! She was quoted saying,

“They’re in a hurry, like the rabbit in ‘Alice in Wonderland,’” she said. “They have a very important date.”

This is such a picture of the sense that I am getting from many prophetic voices right now. There is clarity in direction and it is like we are hurrying toward a very important time and destination.

California is a natural sign of a spiritual change of conditions and seasons. Not only for the state itself but for the state of the body of Christ. We have gone through a long metamorphosis from a place of crawling to a state of taking flight. Like the butterflies emerging from the fields of orange poppies, so is the church emerging from a time of drought and crawling into a time of flight and thriving. They are be drawn to the time of harvest where the super bloom of souls, healings, miracles and a great outpouring will occur.

It is interesting to note that the orange poppies (which are California’s state flower) and orange butterflies are being highlighted in this natural scene. Orange is the color of fire and there so many prophetic voices talking about the fire of God coming upon the church. Amber is the color that represents the Glory of God.

We also know that California has been experiencing a few years of extreme fires that brought so much destruction but now the land is displaying the glory of God after the purifying fires. Once again we see this state revealing a prophetic picture of the Church which has gone through extreme refining and now is beginning to see a display of the Glory of God resting upon it.

What a beautiful and exciting time we are entering into. One of my friends and I keep saying that we feel like Alice (from Alice in Wonderland); we have gone down the rabbit hole and don’t want to go back! It is becoming a “wonder-land” where awe and wonder will be seen by all. His glory will clothe the church with splendor and beauty and His fire will bring forth the manifestation of signs and wonders by the millions!

The Wind of His Spirit is Blowing…Igniting His Burning Ones

Kathi Pelton

My husband and I have the honor of pastoring an amazing group of young adults. On Monday night we had our worship and equipping night in downtown Portland. We have been teaching a series on “Discernment” and as we prepared to teach we discerned that we were to wait (rather than teach) because we sensed a wind of the Spirit beginning to blow upon our time together. As our worship team began to sing, what had began as a gentle breeze of His Spirit suddenly became a mighty wind upon every person present. We were sovereignty taken into what I’d call “throne room worship” as we joined with the angels and sang, “Holy, Holy, Holy.” The wind of His Spirit was blowing away obstacles and fanning into flame the beautiful gift of God upon this generation. They fully yielded to His wind and they became burning ones. We were taken into encounters that lasted the whole night.

Then, early this morning as I sat down to spend time with the Lord I noticed a lot of noise outside. When I looked out the window the wind was blowing so hard (it still is as I write this) that things were being blown over. Again, I discerned that a wind of His Spirit has come to blow upon His people. This sovereign wind will blow away the darkness and fan into flame the “burning ones”. You may feel as though you are merely a spark or ember but when His wind touches you…you will burn with a holy fire. Darkness will flee from lives, families, cities and nations because the light of these burning ones will expose the darkness. It will bring deliverance (a way out) for those who have been lost in darkness. It will bring revival and reformation for those who have hungered for the Lord and it will ignite cities to be “lights on a hill” and a refuge for all.

A shift has happened which has released the wind of heaven to blow upon the earth. The worship of heaven will become the worship on earth and will come upon earthly vessels. When you discern the gentle breeze of His Spirit beginning to blow…STOP! Let it blow upon you and enter into it. Let it fan into flame the very gift of God within you and ignite you with a fire that is unquenchable.

I hear the Lord saying to the United States of America,

“Do you feel the wind of My Spirit beginning to blow? Can you discern that the small cloud overhead is the sign of an abundance of rain? Do you see that fire is about to fall on your offering? Watch for the wind, the rain and the fire of Heaven to fall upon your nation. Prophesy it, declare it and believe it!”

We come into agreement with His word and we prophesy to the gentle breeze that a mighty wind is about to blow. We prophesy to the cloud that an abundance of rain is about to fall. We prophesy over the offering that His revival fire is about to ignite us! Blow on our nation, reign over our land and send holy fire upon Your people. May Your wind send the sparks of what is ignited in the United States to our neighbors in the north and our neighbors in the south; igniting them with your holy fire. May it blow over the waters and touch the nations with the elements of heaven.

Today, we invite your wind to blow away the darkness and ignite the holy fires of revival. Your rain (and reign) of abundance will fall upon your people causing a tsunami of power and love to flood the nations.

The Floodgates of Heaven Are Opening Over Your Life and Over the Earth

Kathi Pelton

Praise opens the floodgates of Heaven!

There is a swell coming out of the sound of the saints that are giving honor, thanks and praise to the Lord. It is the sound of earth, joining with the sound of heaven as together with the elders we throw down our crowns so that He is declared King. This sound of praise that is coming from earth is rising even in the midst of adversity and turmoil which has become a pleasing sacrifice of praise.

The intermingling of the worship in heaven with the worship on earth is opening the floodgates of heaven to release a heavy rain. It is releasing the rain of His reign which will set many free! It is the rain of salvation, the rain of His love and the rain that ends spiritual droughts.

The sacrifice of praise that is offered even when you are hurting is the sound that brings deliverance. The enemy desires to rob Jesus of the worship that He deserves but God’s people are rising up in praise and adoration even in the midst of adversity. They are praising through the pain!

Let your sound go forth, do not hold back your sacrifice of praise because it is the key that is opening the floodgates of heaven over your life and over the earth.

“But all who are left shout and sing for joy. Those in the west praise the Lord’s majesty. In eastern lands, give glory to the Lord. In the lands beyond the sea, praise the name of the Lord, the God of Israel. We hear songs of praise from the ends of the earth, songs that give glory to the Righteous One!…” Isaiah‬ ‭24:14-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Shout, praise, sing and give glory to the Righteous One!
