Keys, Mysteries and Purification

by Kathi Pelton

At the beginning of the year the Lord told me that 2019 would be a “Year of Demarcation.” I knew that February would be a significant month that highlighted moments of demarcation. Beginning 2/12 to 2/22 there was a significant shift, moving the body of Christ into a greater authority that will expose things hidden in darkness, bring forth light, open and close doors, and see both mercy and judgement released.

There are three Scriptures that the Spirit of the Lord highlighted to me. All three of the verse references have the numbers 222 within them.

They are Isaiah 22:22, Daniel 2:22 and Revelation2:22. Let’s look at them and then begin to unpack them a bit.

“I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.” ‭Isaiah‬ ‭22:22‬ ‭

“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.” Daniel‬ ‭2:22‬ ‭

“So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.” Revelation‬ ‭2:22‬ ‭

In Isaiah 22:22 we see a key of authority given that can open and shut doors. We have entered a time of possessing the keys of authority to shut doors that the enemy has held open to bring about demonic laws, agendas, deceptions, defilements, and darkness; these doors will begin to close through the power of prayer and the authority of Jesus Christ given to the church. The word “Holiness” will be written upon these keys.

The authority that comes to those who will follow His ways and walk in His truths (not adding or subtracting from His Word) will receive keys of authority such as Jesus had when He walked on earth.

“To all who are victorious, who obey me to the very end, To them I will give authority over all the nations. They will rule the nations with an iron rod and smash them like clay pots. They will have the same authority I received from my Father, and I will also give them the morning star!” Revelation‬ ‭2:26-28‬

“They will have the same authority…” Incredible!

Daniel 2:22 is upon us as God is revealing deep and hidden things: both truths and deceptions. He is using the most unlikely men and women to bring this about! In the midst of deep darkness His light will be revealed. The enemy’s “underbelly” will be exposed; shields that have protected and hidden satanic strongholds will suddenly be removed, allowing the light to penetrate the darkness. The enemy will be found vulnerable and exposed in many ways and arenas.

Lastly, Revelation 2:22 deals with the spirit of Jezebel. In this chapter the Church of Thyatira is rebuked for “tolerating that woman- Jezebel.” Verse 22 not only brings judgement upon this spirit of deception and defilement, but it calls those who have joined with her into repentance or they will also be judged.

This is a time that we are seeing this spirit exposed (judged) and “those who have joined with with her” given a chance to repent. It is very sobering because it says that those who do not repent will suffer greatly. How merciful it is of our God to offer a time of repentance. This is His mercy because He does not desire to bring judgement.

The end result of this purification, exposure of darkness, and closing doors will be the return of “Holiness unto the Lord” upon His bride.

We will see righteousness, mercy, light, purity, truth, integrity, and the fear of the Lord come upon the church, and this will result in great authority that replaces the kingdom of darkness and deception with the Kingdom of light and of truth.

This is a time of demarcation that is removing the filthy garments from God’s priests as we see in Zechariah 3. We pray for mercy to triumph over judgement and for the fear of the Lord and holiness unto the Lord to come upon His bride.

Mind the Gap: An Exhortation From the Lord

Kathi Pelton

We all have a soul and a spirit. Our souls can either be under the control of the flesh or of the spirit. It is the will of a man that decides what controls the soul. God does not violate our will. He loves us so completely that He allows us the free will to choose who we will serve and how we will live.

Today, I heard His Spirit say to me,

“Kathi, tell My people to ‘Mind the gap.’”

When I ask Him what He meant by this I immediately saw a picture that had the word “soul” on one side and “spirit” on the other with a gap in between the two. Then the Holy Spirit said to me that the gap represents the will of every man and woman.

The past couple of years have been years of transition and alignments that have invited God’s people to yield their will to the ways and commands of God and to train their souls to be submitted fully to the His Spirit. It is a time of great purification and a call to holiness.

We must understand the times and seasons that we are living in and transitioning into. They are great times of victories and fruitfulness but they are also times that we will face giants and battles that require those victories to be won through yielding fully to God by submitting our souls to respond and obey the will of God.

One of the greatest battles that many are facing in this hour are concerning our souls and who (or what) is controlling our thoughts and emotions. God is training His people to yield to His will even while they find themselves in the grip of emotions and thoughts that scream for their way rather than God’s way.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

This process is making a way to break through old and familiar ways that are not aligned with His ways. The “familiar” patterns that do not align with God’s often cost us victories and bring us into warfare and battles that God did not intend us to face. It is the mercy of the Lord that He has “turned up the heat” of the Refiner’s fire in order to purify us and save us from pain and losses in the days ahead. There are too many defeats that have been faced in past seasons because the souls of man have not be submitted to the ways of God.

We must MIND THE GAP! Our will is to be submitted to His will and His ways. The enemy comes to agitate, aggravate and cause offense in order to bring forth (provoke) a reaction from the soul rather than a response to His Spirit. The devil prowls in dark places seeking to strengthen his control over your soul (thoughts and emotions) so that he can assure your future defeats. The soul submitted to the will and ways of the Lord will dispossess the enemy’s strongholds as they listen and obey Him even when the instructions don’t make sense to the human mind. God is assuring victories ahead as we yield to the refinement.

We are in what I would term as “pre-battles”. These are the lions and bears that we must face and defeat before we face the giants in the land ahead. We have crossed over into the Promise Land and the giants aren’t far off now. We do not have to be afraid if we will take heed now and learn to “mind the gap” of our wills in order to embrace His ways.

As you go through each day be sure to pay close attention to those moments that your soul is being stirred to “react” (in fear, frustration, despair or offense). It is in those moments that a lion or bear is before you and you will need to yield your will and respond out of your spirit to gain the victory. Breathe deep and call upon His Spirit to help you!

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

Call upon His peace to guard your heart and mind (to still your storm tossed thoughts and emotions). Then by an act of your will bring your soul into submission to the control of the Spirit. Then you will receive your victory and learn the ways of peace, which are His ways. We will be “giant-slayers” and bring fear to the enemy’s army as we allow this great work to take place in our lives.

STRIKE THE GROUND FOR THE BREAKTHROUGH! Read and share!

PLEASE READ AND SHARE THIS!

I am re-sharing this word that I released yesterday; this time I want you emphasize that this “resistance and opposition” is not merely personal but national and global. The enemy is actively opposing the Kingdom of God and the citizens of His kingdom. He is opposing our Christian rights, values, morals and the generation that is being born. What happens in the United States will not only affect our nation but will affect the nations of the world. It is time to strike the ground in prayer, in righteous decrees, in truth and in “holding our ground” (and taking new ground!).

Don’t let your personal opposition dictate your involvement in what is corporate. What is happening in our nation as we approach mid-term elections will most definitely affect you personally (for good or for evil) as well as affect the whole. The enemy has sent distractions through lies, lack and lethargy to keep you from striking the ground in faith and boldness.

Together we can break through! Together we can strike the ground and resist the devil. Together we can see our nation, our president and our rights protected which will secure us corporately and personally. Strike the ground!

Breaking Through the Strongholds of Opposition and Resistance

Kathi Pelton

There has been an increase of opposition and resistance against God’s people and against the Kingdom advancing. The enemy has sent his demonic troops out to fortify his stronghold against what God is doing with and through His people. Yet, in the midst of the resistance His sons and daughters have not backed up but instead they have been striking the ground in front of them over and over again.

This morning I saw a vision of these “strikes” happening even now. As the Church is declaring His goodness, His faithfulness and is releasing their praise, the ground is being struck. I saw strikes as His people are standing in faith in the midst of impossibilities and great opposition. I saw strikes as His people are aligning their lives with victory and His standards of righteousness. I saw strikes as people are giving sacrificially out of what currently are “limited resources” and great need. Lastly, I saw strikes as the army of God is standing their ground.

With each strike to the ground I saw the demonic stronghold shaken. As these strikes occurred it jostled the resistance army; wearing out the oppositional forces. These strikes are releasing deafening sounds of thunder and blinding bolts of lightening; the power of the Almighty! As these strikes increase the fortification of this opposition is beginning to crumble and fall.

Do not stop striking the ground! It is time to war with extravagant worship, clapping and stomping, righteous declarations, sacrificial giving and standing your ground like never before. Your strikes are working and you are breaking through the enemy’s stronghold!

Though it seems that the accuser’s voice is louder than ever, it is merely because he is screaming in terror at the army that is emerging against Him. This army is clothed in Christ, releasing the bolts of power that come from His throne. This army is coming into alignment, shoulder to shoulder, carrying His glory. They are breaking through the lies, the lack and the lethargy that have for so long resisted advancement.

Strike the ground. Arise and see how the enemy is falling. A beachhead is being formed and you will occupy what the enemy once held captive. Strike, strike, strike! Now is the time!

Understanding The Season of Acceleration and Transformation

Kathi Pelton

We truly do seem to be in a time of acceleration; change is happening everywhere we look! Nations are changing, governments are changing, the spiritual landscape is changing, and hearts are changing. Prayers that we prayed in faith for decades are suddenly coming to pass, and open doors are before many. It is like a “domino effect” is occurring…the hand of God pushed the first one over and now walls are falling down like dominoes.

In this time of acceleration it is vitally important that His people do not get into a “driven” or “high speed” mode that will cause them to burn out or run ahead of proper timing. God is the One who is accelerating things…not man! We are to make sure that we are taking time to be in the secret place, to linger in His presence and to sit with Him until He says “go.” We are to ride the wave of change that is transforming and accelerating us from a posture of peace, stillness, and intimacy.

There is a deep caution in my spirit to be sure that we are not trying to force greater acceleration by our might or our will. This is—and will continue to be—a move of God, not a move of man. It has begun first with personal transformation and will then transform the nations. I hear the familiar verse from Zechariah 4:6 that says,

“This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.”

For nearly a year I have been carrying in my spirit the word “yield.” I daily have been intentionally yielding to the move and work of His Spirit within me and all around me. What has been happening for me personally, and what is happening all around us, is not by might but BY HIS SPIRIT! Most great moves of God began with a swell or acceleration that came by the Spirit but often the “might of man” moved in and not only caused men to fall but also halted the pure move of His Spirit.

What God is doing, and what He is about to do, is in the near future will be by His Spirit. We already are seeing the acceleration beginning, and it is now that we must position our hearts and our wills to yield fully to His Spirit. We must intentionally remain “in Him” by not allowing a move that is accelerating things around us to cause us to run ahead or become driven by our own strength. This move of God will be one that is being propelled by the yielded ones who have allowed transformation to occur. It will not be marked by “the driven ones.”

Understand that you will see driven ones arise and though their efforts may seem good at first, they will merely produce the appearance of fruit, not the organic pure fruit that will last and reveal Jesus as He truly is. This kind of activity will create a wind, but in the end it will bring people into a storm because the strength of men cannot uphold and preserve a pure move of God.

What God is bringing through the partnership with His yielded ones is pure and will draw His people into a peace that allows them to ride His wave without striving or any frantic, man-made push. It will not come from the strength of men but by His Spirit.

So…slow down and yield to His Spirit in this time of acceleration! His Spirit has brought forth this acceleration and will continue to bring further acceleration. We must learn to rest in Him and allow Him to carry us where He is going and into what He is doing. Yield to His full preparation that is transforming His Church; yield to the swell of His Spirit, yield to His healing, His cleansing, and His love. This is a time of freedom, not of frantic striving! Stay in His Spirit.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord–who is the Spirit–makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18.

We are being invited into accelerated transformation so that we will reflect the glory of the Lord as we are changed into His glorious image. This move of God will first and foremost be marked by transformation! It is the transformation we read about in the verse above. This verse will be a marker for what God is doing.

We are currently experiencing a move of the Spirit individually and as a corporate family that is transforming us to reflect His image. The world is longing for something or someone to identify with; they are looking for an “image” to reflect, but so many have merely found confusion and bowed before the graven images of the world’s systems. But as we, His Church, yield to the accelerated transformation that His Spirit is doing, suddenly the world will see Him in us! We will reflect His glorious image for people to see. This will release an accelerated transformation into all the world…not by might but by His Spirit.

What Has Happened Before Will Happen Again!

                         

Kathi Pelton

Today is the 500 year anniversary since Martin Luther nailed his “95 Theses” on the door of a church in Germany…ushering in the great reformation.

According to Wikipedia the Reformation was a 16th-century movement for the reform of abuses in the Roman Catholic Church ending in the establishment of the Reformed and Protestant Churches.

By definition reformation means:

The action or process of reforming an institution or practice.

May the Spirit of the Lord and the people of God, led by His Spirit, once again see another reformation ushered in. It will be a reformation of the heart that will reform practices that have created disunity and divisions.

For two weeks now I have been hearing in my spirit a line from the 1964 Disney classic, Mary Poppins, that says,

“Winds in the east, mist coming in, Like somethin’ is brewin’ and bout to begin. Can’t put me finger on what lies in store, But I fear what’s to happen all happened before.”

Though we do not fear what’s to happen, the enemy surely does and he’s been raging against it for many months now. Another great reformation is about to begin!

• It will usher in Joel’s army…an army that marches shoulder to shoulder without jostling one another for position. (Joel 2)

• It will be the answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-23 when He prays,

“”I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.”
‭‭

• It will be the display the realization of Zechariah 4:6,

Then he said to me, “This is what the LORD says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.”

• It will be the manifestation of Ephesians 3:16-21,

“That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height– to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

‭‭
• Finally, it will reform the hearts of God’s people to posture themselves like Mary did in Luke 1:38 when she responded to the angel of the Lord and said, 

“Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.”

May we be reformed from ways that have brought in abuses, divisions, works of the flesh, prejudices, judgements, jostling for positions, the sound of the resounding gong and steps directed by the head (man) and not the heart (God). 

Pray that we will come into the oneness spoken of 1 Corinthians 6:17 and be “one spirit with Him”, 

“But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.”‭‭  1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:17‬ ‭

May every place that our spirits have been joined with the spirit of the world be broken off of His Church by the grace of the Lord and by the work of His Spirit within us. May His love be nailed to the door of our hearts and to the doorway of this new era. May it reform us to a place of first love that does not fade away. 

May we all pray aloud today the words of Ephesians 3:21,

“To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Release the Sound of Reformation


Kathi Pelton

As I prayed for our nation and for the nations I heard the Spirit say,

“I’m taking back the sound!” 

Then He went on to say,

“The sound of the ‘resounding gong’ will cease and be stilled as the sound of My love is released into the land, the people and the atmosphere. Release the sound of the height, depth and width of My love. It is the sound that stills the storms and brings forth peace.”

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 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. 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. 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. 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 ‭3:16-20‬ ‭

Yesterday at our church God was releasing a word about walking as “friends of God”. As this word was released I began to see the Church not only walk with the voice of truth but they took the hand of Truth (The Way, the Truth and the Life) and walked in friendship with Him. I saw it reversing historic divisions and restoring relationships between families, people groups and nations. It was changing a sound within the fabric of cities and nations.

Many of our forefathers brought truth without love which became like the sound of a resounding gong or a hammer that strikes the heart and wounds it. Watch now, a love reformation has begun. 

“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. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:1-3‬ 

Sacrifice apart from love results in loss, truth apart from love is merely knowledge and prophecy apart from love is only a loud noise. But love is found in intimacy and intimacy begins with friendship. We must be friends with God in order to discover the love spoken of in Ephesians 3. 

Most healthy marriages I know began in friendship. If they skipped that formative step then they usually had to return to that place and develop it in order to experience true intimacy. Walking hand in hand together is where friendship is developed. There is a closeness of spending time together, sharing hearts, listening and journeying together that creates intimacy. 

And so it happened just as the Scriptures say: “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” He was even called the friend of God.

James 2:23

I have a friend that I have walked closely with for 35 years now. We dated our husbands at the same time, we married the same year, we raised our children together (we were even at their births), we walked through celebrations, losses, joys and pain together. We are very different people but we walked as sisters in deep friendship which resulted in intimacy and love. We committed to friendship even at times when our family lived in another nation. It was a commitment that was founded in friendships and kept in the bounds of love. Though we are very different we share one thing that is the same…love.

Just like marriage, friendship requires agreement and commitment. Agreement to stand together and walk hand in hand even when it is tough. This is the love that needs to be seen and heard in the land and experienced in hearts. 

“Many waters cannot quench love, nor can rivers drown it. If a man tried to buy love with all his wealth, his offer would be utterly scorned.” 

Songs of Solomon 8:7

Now is the time to take the outstretched hand of Jesus and walk in friendship. Love is the sound and language that all men understand and it will birth unity, intimacy and dispel fear.

Love is the defining “sound of reformation”! Reformation means making changes to something with the intention of setting it back on the right path. As we recognize the 500 year anniversary on October 31st of the great reformation we need to understand that God is doing it again. This reformation will carry a sound and that sound will be the height, depth and width of His love.

Take His hand, be like Abraham and walk with God as a friend. Let love grow, mature and release the sound of love. 

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-8‬ ‭
