Words To Live By

By Kathi Pelton

I love words! Being a writer means that paper is my canvas and words are my paint. Finding the right word to describe something seen in the spirit or in the natural is vital to helping the reader to understand and have vision.

Our ministry is called, “Inscribe Ministries” based off of the verse from Habakkuk 2:2 that says,

“Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.”

To write a vision requires the right words which bring about understanding to the reader or listener of “how to run!“ It’s so powerful.

Jesus is called the 𝐿𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑊𝑜𝑟𝑑 because He encompasses everything found within the Word. All creation came forth from the words He spoke. There is power in words; to bless or to curse, to speak life or speak death, to empower or disempower and to build up or to tear down, to create or to destroy.

Our words matter! We must ask the Lord to train our mouths to speak words that bless, give life and empower those around us to run. Your words are usually a good way to x-ray your heart,

“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.“ Luke 6:45

This is why we must follow the wisdom found in Philippians 4:8,

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

As we think on these things they renew our hearts and minds causing what comes forth from our mouths to profit those who hear our words. When I was a new believer my heart and mind still needed to be renewed by the Word therefore critical, negative, fretful and judgmental words would leak out; always exposing what needed to be cleaned out of my heart. God was not condemning me, but if I were honest, my words were a clear sign of where my heart needed to be cleaned and renewed.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

When my husband and I were directing a house of prayer for Patricia King she would lead prayer sessions with us where we would “decree the Word of God.“ These times trained our team and all who attended how much power comes forth as we decreed His written Word! I quickly saw the fruitful harvest that would come when I spoke aloud His Word over my life and my family’s lives. Decreeing His Word is like allowing your heart to be strained through the Spirit of Truth; filtering out all the dross.

I remember asking the Lord to put a coal of fire near my lips so that I would not speak anything unholy.

“So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”” Isaiah‬ ‭6:5-7‬ ‭

These verses come right before the verse that says, “Here am I, send me.” This is so important before being “sent.” We must be sent with words of life, hope, truth that prosper and edify the hearer. We must go forth with hearts that have been made clean.

As we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel regarding this global quarantine, I believe that the eyes of the Lord are searching the earth for the ones He might send. But let us first pray the scriptures written above. We need pure hearts, clean hands, words that have been freed from the grip of iniquity and thoughts that profitable to the hearer! We need words that release vision and cause the sent ones to run with purpose.

Today, listen to your words so that you can do a ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑡 𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑐𝑘. Then, if you find that your words are revealing areas that need to be renewed and cleansed; don’t enter into guilt or condemnation because God loves it when we receice His lovingkindness that brings discipline. He is so happy that you desire a clean heart and He has provided you 𝑊𝑂𝑅𝐷𝑆 𝑇𝑂 𝐿𝐼𝑉𝐸 𝐵𝑌.

It’s time to prepare to be sent ones! We must carry words of life that bear fruit wherever they are sown.

Separation Has Brought Us Together— We Are Becoming One!

By Kathi Pelton

When we say that God’s ways are not our ways we truly aren’t kidding! Who could have ever guessed that the thing that was sent to separate us would be used to unite us like never before?

I have never seen so many nations, generations and denomination coming together day after day on ZOOM calls, FB Lives, online worship and prayer meetings! And as I’m sure that you’ve noticed; these are not quick “on the surface” times but they are deep, beautiful and life changing times together.

In the Fall of 2019 the Lord took me into a vision where I saw demons playing cards around a poker table and they had become so confident in their winning streak that they were about to put all their chips in the pot— betting it all in one hand. But in this vision the enemies cheating hand was about to be exposed and “he would overplay his hand” causing a great victory for God’s people and a great defeat for the enemy. The plunder would be transferred to God’s people.

This “separation” has definitely overplayed his hand and suddenly the enemy is losing at the hand he bet on! The body of Christ is rising up in her identity, they are coming together as one family now that there are no church walls or denominational names to divide them. Together they are repenting, changing, partaking of communion and giving generously in the midst of their time of need. What the enemy meant for harm is now healing His Ecclesia and making us one.

You can no longer get lost in a crowd because the crowds are gone and we are seeing each other with new eyes, new longings and new alignments. I keep hearing people speak the words, “We are all in this together.” And it is so true! The Aw entire world has been drawn into home, into family and into a church that has no walls, no denominational affiliation and no end. You can wake up anytime of the night and join with believers from around the world to worship or pray. While the family of God has been quarantined behind the doors of her homes she has begun the greatest outreach we’ve ever seen. Social media has opened the doors to our homes, our lives and our families where all are welcome.

I have probably wept more with the family of a God from around the world these past few weeks then in a long time. I’ve wept for joy at His goodness and His kindness as He unites our hearts. His bride is so beautiful! She is returning to First Love!

As Passover has begun I feel the awe of God as we have responded to Jesus knocking again the doors of our hearts and homes— we have let Him come in. He is ridding our hearts of unneeded things and making room for His communion table to be set. His blood has been placed upon the entrances (doorway) of our hearts and lives as we’ve allowed the finished work of the cross to be the center once again.

This morning as I was awakening from a dream I saw the Lord come and put His blood upon our foreheads, our hands and our feet. All the places that were pierced when He gave His life for us were being touched by the pure and perfect Passover Lamb’s blood; who has once and for all caused eternal death to pass us by.

As I saw this I felt a deep longing to go to every member of our family and take some of the juice from my communion cup and put a drop of it on their foreheads, their hands and their feet as an act of coming into agreement and announcing that we are covered with the blood of mercy (the Passover Lamb) that has made us clean once and forever! No plague (which in Hebrew is translated as “virus”) can separate us from the love of God or the eternal life purchased for us by Yeshua.

“For God’s will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭

What the enemy meant to separate and divide us has brought forth a greater oneness with Christ and with one another then we have ever experienced before this time. We do not forget the fact that lives have been lost and we grieve with those who grieve. But we cannot overlook the beautiful fragrance coming forth from the homes and lives of His people.

Yesterday, Bill Johnson was on an online gathering with our global family and he described how when you go into a jewelry store to purchase a diamond ring the jeweler will lay it upon a piece of black velvet because when a diamond is presented against a backdrop of darkness and then light is shone in it— it’s brilliance is displayed best.

The Lord is suddenly placing His Bride on display against a backdrop of global darkness and shining the light of His sovereignty, His love and His adoration upon her and “she is radiant and brilliant.” She is all together lovely! Her different facets are shining with the brilliance of a cut diamond.

I just want to take this moment to say to each of you; you have taken my breath away! Seeing your faces, the worship from your living rooms, and reading your words of devotion to God have been the greatest non-stop church service I’ve ever attended! Thank you! My “face time” with God has become all the more rich because I have been face to face with you. The worship of the nations has drawn me back to first love!

DecreeA Thing And It Will Be Established

by Kathi Pelton

“You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28

On September 30th we will enter the Hebrew year 5780. The Hebrew word for this time is “Pey” which represents a mouth that has wisdom. The past decade has been a decade of “seeing” what God is saying but now we will enter into a decade of speaking (decreeing, declaring and prophesying) the wisdom that comes forth from God. We will hear His sound and as we speak it, sing it and decree it things will be established on earth as they are in heaven.

Kim Engel wrote the following paragraph that gives greater insight on “Pey”,

“Pey” is the Hebrew letter for the number 80, a picture symbol of a mouth. Discerning when to speak and when to be quiet will be a critical component during the next decade if we are to see the Kingdom of God growing in our lives and our world through our declarations of faith. “Ayin” gives insight, but it is the “Pey” (mouth) that gives insight expression. Wisdom is the key.

This time will remove the “silencer” that the enemy has put upon many who are created to be a mouth that speaks and sings what the Lord is saying. The mute will speak! They will have a voice of authority and wisdom.

The Lord also showed me that “those who have no voice” will be heard! Specifically the unborn. The cry of babies that the enemy has silenced will come forth and babies that would have been aborted will not only live but they will be a voice to their generation and the generations to come.

Women will be given their voice back in a way that brings reformation, honor and wisdom. It will break oppression off of daughters; causing them to find identity in the inward places rather than the outward. I recently heard Chuck Pierce say that when men the revelation and understand regarding the honor of women that it will break the cycles of pornography that is plaguing and defiling both men and women. A sound of deliverance will come and set many free.

The African American community will become a voice like a corporate voice of Martin Luther King, Jr. and they will decree the dream of God. Freedom will be the sound that they release and it will break through racial barriers.

The voice of the Lord will be heard and it will bring back the fear of the Lord. It will come through decrees that establish and through warnings that invite men and women into wisdom and repentance that will thwart judgement and release mercy.

I hear the words from Psalm 29 being declared over this segue into a decade of “sound and wisdom”,

“The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”” Psalm‬ ‭29:3-9‬ ‭

The glory of the Lord will come upon His people and the cry of “Glory!” Will be heard throughout the earth.

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!

The Immersion: A Dream

by Kathi Pelton

I had a dream last night where I was offered either a “body spray” of the Lord or a “perfume” of Him. I didn’t fully understand the terminology because it didn’t seem to fit with spiritual language; although perfume surely seemed like the logical choice. Then I watched as people came near to Him to receive an encounter, or “mist,” of His presence and power. They came near Him and enjoyed these encounters, but they didn’t seem to be lasting or transformational. I told the Lord I wanted more than a mist or spray of Him and instead chose the “perfume.”

At that point I was taken to what appeared to be a baptismal pool. I was placed in this pool, immersed in Him— in His full, undiluted presence. As I was immersed in His pure perfume, I lost myself and became one with Him. I realized that this pool was within His eye and I was the “apple of His eye”; His pupil, His focus.

This immersion was completely transformative as it took me from mere encounter to a consummation of oneness with Him. This perfume made me think of the preparation of Esther or the perfume that was poured over the feet of Jesus. The fragrance that permeated the room continued to flow from Him and now also came from me.

There is a choice; encounter or immersion; a mist or a baptism into oneness. The choice is an invitation, but the price for immersion is greater, as you must lose yourself. The gain is greater as well because you will be transformed into the fullness of Him.

Draw Near

By Kathi Pelton

I hear the Lord’s whispering to His Bride today saying, “Will you draw near to Me?”

Life pulls at us to give our time, energy and focus to everything but stillness. It truly is the greatest wrestle for people. Taking time daily to be still and draw near to God is immediately met with a battle of distraction in the mind and heart.

I often begin my “drawing near time” by praying out of Philippians 4:7,

“Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

His peace comes to guard my heart and mind from distraction so that I can draw near.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you…” James 4:8(a)

To draw near to someone takes intentionality. When I was a young mom in ministry, I had to set days aside to draw near to my children, to my husband and to my source of life, Jesus.

There was the constant “need of others” vying for my time and attention. It took time and a maturing process but I had to learn that I was not other’s “Savior” and that when I drew away from the crowds to draw near to God or my family, I was not neglecting or abandoning the call of God upon my life or my commitment to others.

There were times that I faced criticism and judgements when I drew back but even Jesus knew when to leave the crowds to draw near to His Father or to His family (the disciples).

A number of months ago I heard the Lord calling me to “come away with Him to draw near to Him for an extended time.” It was at a time that my entire family was leaving to go to an important family event in another state. I wrestled with the invitation to “draw near” because I knew that this time with our extended family was a once in a lifetime experience. But the Spirit was persistent and continued to whisper an invitation to “stay behind and draw near to Him.”

Finally, I spoke with my family and they quickly blessed me to stay behind. When they drove away I went directly to my bedroom with my Bible and my journal to lay down on the floor to draw near to God.

Over the next three days God drew near to me in deep, constant intimacy. As I accepted His invitation to draw near to Him, He drew near to me with profound presence, amazing affections, deep intercession, refreshing and renewal. This time truly reset my life and my intimacy with Him.

The same is true with my husband and children. I tend to be very “single focused” and yet my life is always juggling a hundred different things. When I am doing a task it usually gets all of my attention and focus. This can be a good trait but for my family, who also needs my attention, it can be challenging. My kids (who are all young adults now) have taken to calling me by my full name (rather than Mom) when they can’t get my attention. When I hear the name, “Kathleen” by one of my kids it somehow jolts me out of my ultra focused state and back onto them.

I never want Jesus to have to work hard to get my attention off the work of the Kingdom and back onto the King.

Intimacy is forged as we get still and draw near. I am a very early riser because it is in the quiet of the dawn that I draw near to Him. Yet even then I must be intentional to not allow distractions to draw my mind and heart away.

 “…fixing our attention on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of the faith, who, in view of the joy set before him, endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

We must take time to fix our attention on Jesus. We are being invited to draw near and give our undivided attention and affections to the One who gave His all for us.

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Colossians 3:1-3

It is vital to set our minds upon Jesus and intentionally devote time to drawing near to Him. It is then that you will find that He draws near to you in ways that sustain you, renew you, refresh you and draw you into abundant living.

He’s whispering an invitation to you, “Will you draw near to Me today?”

As you say yes, know that He will draw near to you!

God is Intermingling the Old and the New

by Kathi Pelton

The uncompromising message that I heard as a young believer that taught foundational truths, holiness, and freedom from sin and death has often been lost in the desire to let the world know that we walk in love. Yet, no one had to water down the truth that brought conviction of sin when I came to know the Lord. Sin was devastating my life, and the love found within the message of freedom from sin and a God who would die to redeem me from it was greater love than I had ever imagined possible!

Somehow many have concluded that any message that brings real conviction or exposes sin is not love. Yet, there is more love than we can imagine in the message of an invitation into freedom. The truth that the wages of sin are death and hell is now a politically incorrect message, yet it is the truth that Jesus died for; the one that saved my life and the lives of countless men and women.

The teaching of universalism is that there is ultimately no hell, no final judgement for any individual. There are those who tell us that it is unloving to proclaim the truth that rejecting Christ’s payment for sin will result in eternal separation from God. Such ideas have the appearance of kindness, but they are merely a recipe for watered-down Christianity.

Hell is real, but it was not designed for men; instead, it was meant for Satan and his demon army. Jesus made a way, through His death on the cross, for every man and woman to be redeemed, because He paid the price for our sin. We have the opportunity to receive the free gift of salvation and righteousness before our God. It is amazing that God has not forced His love upon us, but has given us free will to accept it or to reject it. Love offers a choice; not a compromised choice, but real freedom to chose.

When I was a new believer I understood these important truths, but unfortunately there were not a lot of true “fathers and mothers” who would come alongside us new sons and daughters in order to nurture us. Many of us who had chosen Christ and received the gift of eternal life still struggled with deeply wounded souls. I was one who carried scars from my childhood and from the many bad choices I had made that brought great harm to my young life.

Though I had experienced the amazing love of God during my salvation experience, rigid “Do no sin!” messages—apart from the healing of my soul to replace the orphan spirit I carried—merely reinforced an unhealthy demand to perform and set me up for failure.

We are seeing a wonderful shift in this season, and messages of love, healing, intimacy, our true identity in Christ, loving family, and generations walking together are now nurturing new converts and healing wounded souls. However, this does not negate the need for us to understand our hopelessness outside of Christ. We must understand the message of holiness and healing found in Jesus.

What I see happening in the Spirit is an intermingling of the message of uncompromising holiness, true conviction of sin, and Jesus redeeming men from the penalty of sin (which is death and hell) with the message of intimacy, family, sonship, identity, grace and His “reckless love.” It’s “not either/or” but “both/and.”

Either message without the other brings about unbalanced living. One demands holiness apart from healing, and the other creates compromise that makes people “feel good”; but they are being comforted within the constraints of their captivity. We need both! We need holiness and we need healing, we need uncompromising truth and unconditional love, we need to displace the enemy and then fill that place with the true identity that God created men to live in.

There is an intermingling of holiness and healing! There is an intermingling of conviction of sin and healing of hearts! There is an intermingling of uncompromising truth and intimacy! And there is an intermingling of foundational teachings and His reckless love that creates true disciples that know they are sons and daughters.

This will release light to those caught in darkness. It is the message the world longs to hear and the balm that souls need to receive. It is new wine poured into new wine skins. One without the other causes the wine skins to burst and the wine to be wasted.

Let us enter into a yielded life that allows the Spirit of the Lord to intermingle the fullness of all the aspects and characteristics of God within our lives. May a bride who is both holy and healed emerge in this hour!

The Countdown! 10, 9, 8…

The countdown for our Washington DC trip has begun!

On May 29th I will be flying to Washington DC along with our daughter and son-in-law to gather with leaders from across the nation. We will worship, pray, join hearts and hear from the Lord regarding the steps ahead to see our nation return to her righteous foundations. We long to see God’s original intent for our nation restored and realized.

Though there is often great resistance as we move forward to see His Kingdom established, we rest in knowing that the victory is the Lord’s and as we say, “Yes!” we will know that we become a part of that victory.

Will you join our “yes” by adding your “yes” to praying for us and supporting us with a financial gift?

As always, we will go in faith, which is our confident assurance of all that we need.

We will be posting updates during our trip to keep you aware of all that is happening. We will also be joining David’s Tent on the National Mall for a day of prayer and worship as well as going to Fredericksburg, Virginia for some strategic meetings.

Thank you for your prayers and faithful support~~Kathi Pelton

April Will Be A Month That Open Doors and Opens Blossoms of Promise!

by Kathi Pelton

When I sat down this morning to write this word about April being a month of open doors, my phone sent me an alert of a new message. That message read, “April literally means ‘To Open’.”

I just about jumped out of my skin! I quickly went and googled the meaning of the name April and here is what I read,

“April goes way back. … One is that the name is rooted in the Latin Aprilis which is derived from the Latin aperire meaning “to open” – which could be a reference to the opening or blossoming of flowers and trees, a common occurrence throughout the month of April in the northern hemisphere.”

April is the fourth month of the year; and the fourth letter in the Hebrew alphabet is “dalet” which means or signifies a door. Though April comes each year as the fourth month, I have never experienced a spiritual awakening or blossoming such as I sense this year. God has highlighted the words “open doors” to me from the moment April began and though we are only a week into it there are daily signs in the spirit and in the natural that is an announcement from heaven that something has opened up!

For me personally, April is one of my favorite months because of the budding or blossoming of the flowers and trees here in North America. Around our city cherry trees are in full pink displays of color. Many of our streets look like they’ve been lined with cotton candy. The dogwood trees are in full bloom and the tulips and daffodils have come out of the ground to announce that Spring has sprung.

Each year I am like a child in a candy shop as I see this visual display of life appearing in the land. But this year there is something more! This year there is a convergence of what is happening in the land and in the Spirit. I know that something has opened! The Lord is speaking the words from Isaiah 22:22,

“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.”

If you have read my articles from the past two days about 4/4–isn’t it interesting that this verse is from Isaiah 22:22? Mathematically 22 + 22 becomes 44. I am not being superstitious or over-spiritual because, as a friend pointed out to me yesterday, God has a personal language that is to be found by each one of us. For some of us He uses pictures, numbers, and visual signposts as His signature for us to see. That is often how He confirms things for me. As I put these things together they always add up to a clear confirmation that He is speaking. They will include my seer gift, His voice, the Word of God, and natural signs converging together to bring a clear message.

Jesus is our open door! God is opening doors that no man can close and He is closing doors that no man can open. These open doors will bring new life to His people. Long awaited promises will blossom and times of waiting will end. This open-door time for God’s people will also open doors for those who are ready for a “born again” experience. The seeds, or bulbs, of salvation will suddenly burst forth with great joy as many come into the knowledge of the love of Jesus.

The joy these new believers experience will also become our joy as we cross into this era of birthing new life. I saw a vision of the body of Christ sitting in a “critical care” unit in a hospital (where trauma and loss permeated the air) to suddenly being in a maternity ward where new life, birth, promises fulfilled, and great joy filled the atmosphere!

These open doors will also bring forth open doors for the rights of the unborn to be upheld. Doors will close that take make a way to take life from the doorway of the womb. Adoption will replace abortion!

April is an opening that will cross His people into experiencing “abundant life” like never before. I believe we will even see a baby boom in the natural, and in this baby boom we will see many baby girls that are given the name April!

Begin to declare open doors over your life, children, household, ministry, business, and city! Call forth the new life and begin to praise Him for the blossoming of life and promises being fulfilled.

As April began, the Lord spoke to me and said that there would be no April Fools this year because this is real! This is not a time where we will feel disappointed, as though we were fooled into believing something that didn’t manifest. We will see doors open that bring life and blessings and we will see doors close that have let the thief in (who steals, kills and destroys).

Lastly, I heard the words from His Spirit saying, “I rename you Beulah land.”

“No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married.” Isaiah‬ ‭62:4‬ ‭

This is His declaration over you! His delight will come upon you and overtake you!

God is About to Send Fire Down Upon Your Offering. He Will Prove that He Alone is God!

by Kathi Pelton

The Holy Spirit has been drawing my attention to the story in 1 Kings 18, when Elijah and Ahab and the prophets of Baal had their showdown.

As you recall, Jezebel had been killing the prophets of God and supporting the prophets of Baal and Asherah. When Elijah shows up to meet with King Ahab, Ahab accuses him of making trouble in Israel but Elijah declared that it was the king and his family that had made trouble for the nation by turning away from God to worship Baal.

Elijah then tells Ahab to call the prophets of Baal and Asherah to be gathered (along with the worshippers of these idols). There were 450 prophet of Baal and 400 prophets of Asherah and one prophet of the true God, Elijah. Elijah instructed the prophets of Baal and Asherah to build an altar of wood and place a cut up bull upon it and then to call to their gods to send fire to consume their offering. From morning to evening they called, shouted, danced and ritualistically cut themselves to summon their god. Fire never fell.

Then Elijah built an altar of stone and wood. He then placed the cut up bull upon it. Then the altar was drenched with water; even a trench was dug around it and water filled it. Then He called upon the One true God.

“At the usual time for offering the evening sacrifice, Elijah the prophet walked up to the altar and prayed, “O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.” Immediately the fire of the LORD flashed down from heaven and burned up the young bull, the wood, the stones, and the dust. It even licked up all the water in the trench! And when all the people saw it, they fell face down on the ground and cried out, “The LORD —he is God! Yes, the LORD is God!””

‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭18:36-39‬ ‭

I felt to remind you of this story because many of you are facing impossible circumstances and yet you have not turned away from the One true God. You have seen the lives of prophets taken, you have watched the evil one try to kill the word of the Lord that you have been standing on and you have watched your countrymen turn to serve idols and false gods.

Today you stand like Elijah before your drenched offering, knowing that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the true God. Those against you outnumber those who are for you but God is on your side and He is about to send fire upon your offering.

I hear you praying the words of Elijah that say,

“…Prove that I have done all this at your command. O LORD, answer me! Answer me so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.”

This showdown is not merely for your breakthrough but it is the kindness of God that brings those who have turned to false gods back to the One who loves them and gave His life for them. It is for you, for God and for those who have been lost.

The spirit of Elijah is upon the Church and we are about to see the fire of God fall upon the impossibilities and upon nations! Many will turn to God as they see Him prove that He alone is God.

Declare that the spirit of Elijah will fall in a greater measure upon our sacrifice. Believe that God’s true and pure fire will fall. Declare that those who worship and serve idols (false gods) will turn back to God. The spirit of Elijah defeats every spirit of deception when God’s fire falls and reveals Him as the One true God.

This is the hour that the glory will return! The glory train is arriving and a shout that calls “All aboard” is heard throughout the nations. Those who carry the spirit of Elijah will board this train and be carriers of His fire and glory. They will call back that which belongs to God! The whistle has sounded and it is the time of glory and fire to go forth with light and power.

We call upon the name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! Prove that we have done all these things at your command. O LORD, answer us. Answer us so the people will know that you, O LORD, are God and that you have brought them back to yourself.
