The Voice of the Lord Breaks the Cedars— Get Ready To See His Power!

By Kathi Pelton

In the past two weeks those of us who live in the Washington DC region have received numerous alerts on our phones regarding sudden thunderstorms accompanied by such extreme downpours that flash flood warnings had to be issued. These downpours have been amazing to witness— like signs from heaven. After receiving yet another one yesterday, I was reminded of a dream I had early in 2019, many months before I moved from the West Coast to the DC region.

In this vivid dream a heavy rain began to suddenly and unexpectedly pour; it was a downpour like I have never before witnessed that was more like a flash flood from heaven to earth. As this downpour hit the earth, flashes of lightning were accompanied by the simultaneous crash of thunder as these strikes hit a grove of tall evergreen trees, splitting them in two.

I awoke from the dream hearing the words from Psalm 29:5,

“The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.”

The Message Bible words it like this,

“God’s thunder smashes cedars, God topples the northern cedars.”

This dream came in the midst of the Spirit speaking to me daily about the need for the “fear of the Lord” to come back upon His people so that they can walk and release the fear of the Lord into the earth.

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

When the enemy comes in like a flood (through witchcraft, perversions, and evil of all sorts) the Lord also comes like a flood to raise up a standard against him. I believe that God’s voice is about to come and raise up a standard! As the fear of the Lord returns to His Church it will release the awe of God that breaks—shatters—everything that has stood against Him.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

A flood of evil that is being redefined as “good”has come to call darkness light and light darkness. But the fear of the Lord is about to touch the earth with a powerful strike that brings forth the Lord’s standard.

In my dream it was evergreen trees that were struck by this lightning. An evergreen tree was the symbol on the “Appeal to Heaven” flag that was flown by Washington’s Cruisers (George Washington’s first naval ships). This tree represented “Liberty” or freedom at the beginning of our great nation. Today it has become a symbol of prayer to see God return to our nation.

The definition of liberty is this,

the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.”

Or,

“the power or scope to act as one pleases.”

The enemy has been rewriting his definition of liberty within our nation and within the nations of the world. It has become a liberty to pursue evil and call it good while oppressing those who call for the righteous standard of God to be raised up. Within the context of the Bible the word “liberty” means freedom. This is the freedom to live apart from slavery to the masters of sin and the world’s systems.

Within the standard of the fear of the Lord we are given freedom from the grip of slavery to sin and to unrighteousness. The enemy has set up a Babylonian culture that enslaves and blinds many from the “way of freedom” that Jesus provided for us on the cross. When Jesus came and died, a way was made through grace for all to be set free.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭

When He died the veil was torn and we were given free access to boldly come before the throne of grace and be reconciled with God; enjoying His presence where true liberty is found. I believe that our nation (as well as the nations of this world) are about to see a great “rending of the veil” that has blinded the eyes of the world from seeing their Messiah. The gods of this world have stood like trees, creating a veil that blinds people from seeing Jesus and from the revelation of true liberty and freedom. These “gods” have cast a shadow of darkness that call darkness light and light darkness.

But wait! The Lord has the final say! His voice thunders; breaking the cedars and rending the veil of separation between God and man.

As the Lord returns the awe and the fear of the Lord to His Church it will release a flood and a sound that lifts up a standard that reverses the tide of evil with a tsunami of righteousness and truth.

“The time will come,” says the LORD, “when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine!” Amos 9:13

Now is the time to invite the fear of the Lord to come upon your life, your church, your city, and your nation. You are a part of the whole body and as the corporate anointing is established in the fear of the Lord it will bring liberty, freedom and breakthrough to the individual and the whole.

God is sending an alert to those powers and principalities that resist His ways and His will—

REMNANT— ROAR — RUACH: The Spiritual Three R’s of 2020

By Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord has given me three very specific subjects for this time to release and focus our prayers and declarations upon. I’ll call them the “Three R’s”

REMNANT

I spent almost two months meditating on the story of Gideon’s army. This began when the Lord spoke to me saying, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I was immediately shown Gideon’s army of 300 men going out against the mass (uncountable) number of Midianites.

As you know from the story, Gideon had his men light torches of blazing fire and put them in clay jars. They went to the edge of the enemy’s camp late at night and at Gideon’s signal the clay jars were broken to reveal the “blazing fire.” This was accompanied by the blowing of the rams horns and a shout declaring, “For Yahweh and for Gideon.”

From the first time that the Lord spoke the words, “It’s time for My remnant army to arise.” I would see the scene of Gideon’s army breaking the clay jars to reveal the blazing fire (torches) play again and again in my mind. I would hear the “breaking of the jars” like an echo from long ago reverberating off the obstacles we face today.

The words, “blazing fire” was before my spiritual eyes daily. I knew that there was more that the Spirit wanted to show me but didn’t know what it was. Then one day recently, I was in Washington DC praying and I heard the words from Revelation 19:12 that say,

“His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Immediately, I knew by the spirit of revelation that the blazing fire that was about to be revealed before the enemy armies of today are “His eyes of blazing fire.” And— we are the broken clay jars that will reveal them.

“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.” 2 Corinthians 4:7

God will REVEAL His eyes of blazing fire through the broken clay vessels of His REMNANT army— causing great fear and confusing in the enemy’s camp.

There was another time where His eyes defeated a great army. It was when He looked out of the pillar of fire upon the army of Pharaoh and created a confusion that ultimately destroyed them.

“But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion.” Exodus 14:24

The first “R” is remnant. It will be the remnant that brings the revelation of His eyes of blazing fire. The declaration of who He is in Revelation 19:12— of His eyes, the crowns upon His head and His title is so powerful in this hour! Daily declare His “eyes of fire” to look down upon the demonic armies!

ROAR

The second “R” is the roar of the Lion of Judah.

After Gideon’s army broke the clay jars to reveal the blazing torches they let out a shout and blew the rams horns. Each time this story would replay in my mind and spirit I would hear the great roar of the Lion of Judah accompanied by His remnant army. It was a great sound that struck terror into the enemy’s army. It even crumbled the demonic obstacles that I had heard the sound echoing off of. The sound of His roar and our shout will shattered the walls— just like the shout that brought the walls of Jericho down— giving the victory to God’s people.

“The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?” Amos 3:8

I hear great roars coming from throughout the earth. It is the sound of His people in many nations joining in with the roar of the Lion of Judah. This is the sound that strikes terror and shatters fortified walls.

RUACH

The third “R” is “Ruach” which is the Hebrew word for “Breath of God.”

As I have spoken of in previous articles, “The Battle is over the BREATH!” We know that Coid-19 causes symptoms that make it hard to breath (or even take the breath away completely). We know that the last words from George Floyd’s mouth were, “I can’t breathe.” And we know that the use of masks is making it hard for many to breathe (reducing oxygen flow). The world is terrified of other’s breath (due to the virus) and terrified of not having breath.

Why? All of this attack on the breath is because the enemy knows that the RUACH is about to come upon the dry bones!!

Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 37:4-14

The enemy knows that an army is arising! The “Ruach” (breath of God) has been bringing the dry bones together in oneness. This is the answer to Jesus’ last prayer before going to the cross in John 17:20-23

““My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

The bones are coming together as ONE! One man, one great army that is one with Christ! It is the breath of God that comes upon the dry bones to restore life! This is why the battle over the breath is so fierce— it is what the enemy fears the most!

We are in the Hebrew year 5780— the year of “Pey” or “the mouth.” The mouth is where breath is taken in and blown out. The mouth is what prophesies. The mouth is what declares the REVELATION of His eyes, the ROAR of His voice and the RUACH— the breath of God!

Do not hold back your breath! Prophesy— for we all can prophesy His Word and His truth! Prophesy the revelation of His eyes, the sound of His roar and the “Ruach” in your homes, your churches, in the streets of your city, over governments, nations and over the earth!

May His eyes of blazing fire look upon the enemy armies bringing terror and confusion, may His roar be sounded like a shofar that breaks the walls down and strikes terror and confusion and may His “Ruach” come like a mighty wind that blows away the darkness and breathes life into the dry bones!

Let it be so!

Time To Breathe— Send the “Ruach”

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday I was talking with a dear friend who has Covid-19 and he was sharing the darkness he experiences when he cannot get his breath. I have also heard this from others who have contracted this terrible illness. They all say that there seems to be a dark assignment within this virus that is attached to “breath” or the lack of breath.

Then I began to think of George Floyd and his last words, “I can’t breathe!” Those very words have pierced the heart of our nation at a time where the victims of this virus are speaking the very same words.

As I prayed and pondered this I found myself taking deep breaths. My heart was aching for those who are struggling to breathe. But as I took these deep breaths I felt life and hope coming back into me.

The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life.” Job 33:4

I find it interesting that the Book of Job has numerous instances where the breath of God is mentioned.

“By His breath the heavens are cleared; His hand has pierced the fleeing serpent.” Job 26:13

“But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives them understanding.” Job 32:8

We all know what Job had gone through— the loss of family, the loss of health, the loss of wealth, and the loss of friends. But in the midst of this book we find the breath of God credited as the source of life and understanding. I love when it says, “By His breath, the heavens are cleared.”

There is such a war raging in the heavenly realms over the breath of the Almighty coming upon mankind, and the sound that is to be released from His sons and daughters. This Hebrew year is represented by the mouth and the sound that comes forth from the mouth (5780: “Pey”— the mouth), and it seems the enemy has taken all of his demonic resources to block our breath so that our sound will be silenced.

Without breath a man cannot speak or even utter a sound! Recently I had a dream in which a musician could not get his breath and his song was being silenced; although this dream had other meanings I also am reminded that we need breath to speak or to sing.

As you know, in California there is a ban on singing in church (or “chanting” which is probably referring to corporate prayers). Why? There are natural reasons regarding controlling the spread of the virus, but we can also discern that the enemy is inciting men to fear the breath that is released when there is corporate singing or praying.

The battle is for the breath of God and the breath that gives us words of declaration and songs of praise. The enemy has sent a virus upon the breath of man. We are afraid to breath on one another; we are afraid that the breath of our neighbor will infect us and take the breath of life from us.

There is a demonic reversal of “breath” happening. When we breathe in we feel life but when a man is dying there is a final exhale that rids his lungs of air— never to breathe in life again.

Yet— the BREATH OF THE ALMIGHTY cannot be stopped! His sons and daughters must breathe in His breath and be filled with life once again. If you are experiencing a sense of being silenced or losing your song, your words, your voice, or your life— then now is the time to ask for the “Breath of the Almighty” to come and breathe life back into you!

Thanksgiving, high praise, declarations of “Who He is,” prayers, worship, and even the “groaning that is too deep for words” must go forth to defeat the assignment to steal the breath of life! Though we have been separated physically, it has not stopped the sound. More 24/7 worship is happening via the internet then ever before. This has created a second wave of warfare to remove the breath in order to stop the sound!

Now is the time to see a second wave of prayer and praise drown out the enemy’s army! It’s time to “Sing a little louder”—or a lot louder! Sing for those who cannot sing, cannot speak, and cannot find their breath.

There is the sound of prophecy that the Lord is releasing. I hear Him saying, “Prophesy breath!”

Then he said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again! I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” Ezekiel‬ ‭37:4-6‬

Prophesy His breath, sing songs about the breath of God, declare the Word regarding the breath of the Almighty! Breathe life back into the air— pure life filtered through His Spirit!

Ruach” is the Hebrew word for “breath of God.” God breathes His Spirit (Ruach) into us! As I have shared in many of my articles in 2020, the Lord showed me prior to the new year that this would be a year that would be defined by, “Not by might nor by power but by My Spirit” says the Lord of Hosts. It is the breath of His Spirit— His Ruach— that is striking fear into the enemy! It is His Ruach who is needed as never before!

This is how we prophesy, this is how we gain understanding, this is how we live and breathe. Cry out for the Ruach to come— the breath and wind of His Spirit to blow and breathe life into the earth and it’s inhabitants. Do not hold back. Breathe life!
