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 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.

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.

The Convergence of Time

by Kathi Pelton

If you’ve noticed, there are a lot of words that have been released in the past two months about “time.” Words like, “The Time is Now,” “A Marker in Time,” “Now is the Time,” “It’s Time!” and more. I have been in many conversations with other prophetic voices who are hearing clocks, bells, whistles, alarms, and words that go back many years becoming NOW words.

We are in a convergence of time; time past and a now or kairos time; the old and new, the past and present all colliding into a NOW time. One time, one people, one family, ONE God!

I saw a vision of men, women, and children all walking in different places around the world; all in different time zones and doing different activities. But all at once each person’s watch synchronized and reset to the same time and alarms all went off simultaneously. There were pocket watches that older men carried, wrist watches that the middle aged people were wearing, and smart watches that the younger generation was wearing. They all synchronized and as they did one family emerged…three generations walking as one with One God!

When I looked at the different watches to see what time it was I began to see many times overlaid as one kairos time. I saw “10:10, 11:11, 12:12…but they were somehow all a now time.”

Then verses began to flood through my mind. Verses such as these,

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

“And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.” Hebrews 11:11

“For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” Luke 12:12

I began to hear to hear prophetic words that were brought to my remembrance from the 80’s, 90’s and early 2000’s….then i heard words from now and they all converged into one sound that signaled the family to converge and emerge.

I am sure that what I was experiencing was limited to my understanding and that there was so much more than I was aware of because I could hear echoes of years gone by and prayers for tomorrow as if they were one sound. It sounded like the worship in Revelation 4:11 before the throne that caused the elders to cast down their crowns and cry out,

“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

Then the words, “Holy, holy, holy” rang out and the men, women and children now on earth joined with heaven; casting down their crowns. Suddenly men’s hearts were purified and a remnant was made ready for a move of God that would be marked by purity and oneness.

The time is now. The convergence of time is upon us and the sound of heaven and earth is aligned to give Him all the glory He deserves.

The Bells and Whistles Are Now Sounding

Kathi Pelton

This morning I was heard the Spirit of the Lord speak the words, “I am now releasing all the bells and whistles.”

As I was taking note of this I heard “in the natural” what sounded like a train whistle three times (there are no train tracks near our home)! On the third one my husband said to me, “What is that sound?” When I told him what I was writing and that the noise was coming from outside he said, “I thought it was coming from your phone!” It was my phone that I was writing on.

Immediately I was taken to three scriptures to confirm the sound we were hearing:

Zechariah 10:8:

“I will whistle for them to gather them together, For I have redeemed them; And they will be as numerous as they were before.

Isaiah 5:26:

He will also lift up a standard to the distant nation, And will whistle for it from the ends of the earth; And behold, it will come with speed swiftly.

Zechariah 14:20:

In that day there will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, “HOLY TO THE LORD ” And the cooking pots in the LORD’S house will be like the bowls before the altar.

For months now I have been taken back to 1989 when Bob Jones and Paul Cain prayed over my husband and I the words, “Holiness unto the Lord.” We began praying that over our children from the moment of their birth onward. The words that were spoken and prayed over us (along with many others) thirty years ago have been ringing in my ears and my spirit again and again like an alarm saying, “NOW IS THE TIME!”

It is like the arrival of a train that signals, “All aboard!” or a bell that is attached to horses signaling their arrival. In 2014 I began hearing a train whistle in my spirit. Each time that I’d talk about it to someone, suddenly a train whistle would go off in the natural (even if I didn’t know that a train track was nearby). At that time I knew that this particular whistle was signaling something spiritual that was approaching for the USA. I knew it was time to get ready and be prepared to board this “glory train.” Now, five years later I am hearing the sound once again. This time, it is coming with “all the bells and whistles!”

I find it interesting that while I’m hearing these words about bells and whistles that my family has been having unusual car problems. Both of our cars have had issues that stopped them from running. The term “bells and whistles” are often used in describing newer cars. We will say, “It is equipped with all the bells and whistles,” meaning that it is an upgrade with all the things that make travel easier and more comfortable. I found myself calling in a newer car with all the bells and whistles as these problems occurred. Cars (vehicles) represent families and ministries and I believe that the Lord is sending forth an upgrade to many ministries that have nurtured “family” so that they can go forward with greater ease and comfort; almost like going from an old “clunker” to a prestigious top-of-the-line new vehicle.

I recently had a dream where an old, dilapidated SUV was in my driveway and a new Lincoln Crossover was delivered to me and parked next to it. i believe that this spoke of it now being a time to crossover into a time of emancipation (Lincoln representing a spirit of emancipation)! This is a time of liberation and freedom from that which has held us back.

The war horses are coming with bells inscribed with the words, “HOLINESS TO THE LORD.” Those who have been prepared to run with the horses are being released (emancipated) from the fenced places to run fast and free. They will run with the fear of the Lord as their standard and they will whistle to the nations to come! Bells of revival will ring in the land and nations will come to witness all that the Lord will do. Signs and wonders will be like the bells and whistles that sound throughout the nations. These will not be contained within church walls but will spill out into the streets; into the byways and highways to both the least and the greatest! All will see that the LORD is God. Like the bowls before the altar that are filled by the prayers of the saints, the overflow is now upon us!

Do you hear the bells and whistles? The sound of a great move of God is arriving. Do not miss this time but be prepared to run!

I Heard The Lion of Judah Roar “REDEMPTION!” Over Your Life!

Kathi Pelton

God gives me a lot of dreams during the night that are revelations into what He is doing or about to do. Last night I had a dream that I initially woke up from and thought, “What was that?!”

At first I just put it aside as a weird dream but as I went to spend time with the Lord this dream came back to me and it became clear that the Lord was showing me something. I hesitated sharing it because it was visually disturbing but God was purposeful in His choice of descriptive pictures therefore I will share it with you as He shared it with me.

In the dream I was taken into a room with a toilet in it. As I stepped into the room this toilet began to back up with solid sewage that I knew was coming from within its tank (not the sewage lines or pipes). It was years worth of waste and this old waste filled the bowl; yet didn’t spill onto the ground (it was contained). I was aware that the tank where it was wrongly being stored was now empty of the waste of old and it could be flushed away. Now it could work properly and give a continual flow of clean water. Waste would go to the proper place. (End of dream)

When I began to spend time with the Lord He revealed to me through this dream that we are now in a sovereign time where trauma, pain, regrets, disappointments, betrayal and wounds of the soul that have remained stored in our souls (our soul tanks) from past events will suddenly be released. As they come to the surface they will not spill out on the floor and negatively affect our lives, homes, relationships and surroundings but they will be contained and washed away from the soul “as far as the east is from the west.” No longer will your soul be a tank filled with wounds or wasted places from the past but it will work for your benefit.

The Lord says, ‘I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts, the hopping locusts, the stripping locusts, and the cutting locusts. It was I who sent this great destroying army against you. Once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you. Never again will my people be disgraced. Then you will know that I am among my people Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and there is no other. Never again will my people be disgraced.’”Joel‬ ‭2:25-27‬ ‭

This is restoration time! It is vindication time and it is time for the wasted years to be restored. I hear Him saying over you,

“No more shame, no more disgrace, no more lack, no more waste!”

The miracles of deliverance are now coming upon you. There is a flushing out of the carcasses of old and the plagues that have swarmed you. God is about to make His name known among all who look upon your life and you will give Him all of the praise for the wonderful work He will do.

“God, your God, will restore everything you lost; he’ll have compassion on you; he’ll come back and pick up the pieces from all the places where you were scattered. No matter how far away you end up, God, your God, will get you out of there and bring you back to the land your ancestors once possessed. It will be yours again. He will give you a good life and make you more numerous than your ancestors. God, your God, will cut away the thick calluses on your heart and your children’s hearts, freeing you to love God, your God, with your whole heart and soul and live, really live.” Deuteronomy 30:3-13

These are His words to you today! The old, wasted places are being washed away and His new and miraculous deliverance is now upon you. He is Restorer, Redeemer and Deliverer. The Lion of Judah is coming upon the land of your life and roaring a command of restoration! The roar literally sounds like the word, “RESTORATION!”

Roar with Him and call forth the restorative work in your life. Agree with His word and echo His roar.

Now is the time!

There Is Strength For The Weary

Kathi Pelton

As I was taking time in a garden to wait upon the Lord, I heard Him speaking these words,

“I give strength to the weary.”

As His people take time to cease from their constant busyness and sit with Him, He will increase their strength so that they will be set free from a deep weariness that produces powerlessness. The enemy is attempting to wear people down through distractions and busy activities but it is important to allow the Holy Spirit to order our steps and activities so that we have time for the One who renews our strength. It is in these “set apart” times that we are strengthened and refreshed as well as receive a reset (reordering) of our steps and the rhythm of our movements in life.

Remember that even God rested on the seventh day! People often do not know how to stop and rest. Waiting is a lost art and yet such a vital one. Waiting is not inactive but it is a discipline of actively and intentionally stopping the dictating demands of this world to allow our bodies, souls and spirits to be strengthened with power for the journey ahead. Just as a vehicle must stop to be refueled, so we must stop for the refueling of our spirits that nourish and restore our souls.

“Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:28-31

Exhaustion is not effective for relationship with God, family or for the peace that we personally need. We learn the beauty of trust that is formed in the secret place. We must learn to soar like eagles in the resting place and we must find the strength to walk and to run from the still places. As we take time to rest and wait we will be continually renewed and refueled. We will run the race with strength and effectiveness only as we take those moments to stop and allow Him to refill us.

These still moments are not about intercession or deep prayers but rather about taking time to wait. Listen to the birds singing, the breeze blowing, creations praise. You will find Him there.

He is waiting for you!

God is About to Restore Marriages! A Revival of Renewed Love Will Come Forth

Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me a vision of couples that had been married for many years suddenly awakened to the “first love” that they had for one another. At first, I saw a black and white scene of a couple who were merely functioning in life together but no longer sharing the deep connection they once knew.

Then I saw angels sent to these couples—they were like cartoon “Cupid” angels that kids draw—and the angels were playfully shooting arrows of love at these couples. As this happened, the vision turned to vivid color and these couples remembered once again the wonderful sensation of love they shared in the beginning. Their hearts came alive with joy and excitement, and all the feelings they had shared in the beginning were restored.

I then saw that many second honeymoons will be planned because of this renewed love and affection. All the years of being responsible: focusing on raising children, on careers and caring for homes, and the hundreds of things that life demands from couples will suddenly come into a new perspective, and rather than tearing them apart it will knit them more closely together. They will carry the wonder of the love they shared in the beginning, along with the depth of wisdom that the years have taught them. Wonder and wisdom will be intermingled causing a double-portion blessing to rest upon their lives.

This double-portion blessing will suddenly give these couples new energy and new hopes, dreams, and joy. It will pour over into their relationships with Jesus, where together they will come into a renewed, first love experience with Him. Oneness of heart will be released in the body of Christ due to the love that is rekindled in these marriages.

I hear the words again and again, “He makes all things new! He makes all things new! He makes all things new!”

This mending of marriages will do more for the Kingdom than we can imagine. It will release a unity of hearts and a healing upon families. A baptism of joy will come upon His people because hearts will be awakened and “love will be in the air.” It will pour out wherever these couples go and people will be drawn to the love that they share. People will be saved because of their longing to have what these couples share together.

The world is full of married couples that are desperately longing to be reconnected and restored. The couples that experience this renewed love will become ministers of reconciliation wherever they go. They will become household and family evangelists; praying for and laying hands on couples that need what they have. They will carry an anointing for reconciliation and renewal.

Get ready for a revival of love that hits marriages!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12
