Just Look At Our Lives!

By Kathi Pelton

WE ARE NOT 25 ANYMORE!! As much as we feel young…the reality is that we must embrace all the beauty (grey hairs & wrinkles) that comes with “age.” Wisdom gained is one great reward of living through many stages of life. Time has been a patient teacher to train us how to live, how to embrace dependency in all of God’s ways and how peace leads us into joy.

One of the greatest rewards of aging is watching the fruitfulness in our “now grown” children’s lives. It is like watching the best home movie ever! Our youngest is about to be married in August and for the first time ever- we have an empty nest (which is both heart wrenching and beautiful). Watching and walking alongside of our children’s struggles and triumphs is such an honor. Seeing them blossoming into all that God created them to be takes our breath away and causes us to declare, “It’s all been worth it!” That being said, we do have one prodigal that we will never stop fighting for…we believe and declare her identity in Christ every day; expectantly awaiting this prodigal to run home to her Father one day very soon. We wait in peace and joy…because He is faithful. If you have a prodigal then praise over them! Declare the goodness of God over them and wait in joyful expectation until you see them run home.

In June I turn 56…how? Yet, I can say that it’s been a life well-lived and still, there is so much more to live and so many more to love. This past week marked 37 years since my 25 year old boyfriend asked me to marry him and I said yes. We had so many big dreams and yet so little understanding of the mountains and valleys that we’d have to walk through to see those dreams come to pass. And, of course…those 25 year old dreams didn’t include the struggles or waiting that would be required to see them come to fruition. But it was in the struggles that character, integrity, perseverance and faith was built in our lives. God has truly exceeded our dreams in every way. We’ve only just begun! You have only just begun!

Whether you are old or young–DREAM BIG! I’d rather reach high and come up short then reach low and see nothing! I’d rather try and fail then never risk and never learn. Yes, there have been shortcomings and failed attempts but there has been great victories and flags of victory planted on the tops of mountains that were conquered! We have had seasons of tears but reaped a harvest of joy at the end of each one. Our tears watered the seeds planted in our hearts.

So…no, we are not 25 anymore. Our memories and stamina isn’t what they once were but He has renewed our strength and so we continue to run! Our independent ways have turned into absolute dependency and surrender. Our love has grown from a fluttering butterfly into a eagle that is full of strength and undivided focus! Wisdom has crowned us with grace and peace has wrapped us in a robe of rest.

Wherever you are in life, be sure to embrace the journey. Scale high mountains and then plant flags of victory when you reach the top. Walk through valleys of tears and let them water the seeds of the dreams that God has planted within you. Find water in desert seasons and miracles in impossible situations.

Let every season yield a harvest of fruit and wheat. Holy Spirit descend upon us through every year and every season so that we have no regrets but the testimony of Jesus is written upon our lives!

It’s No Longer Time To Survive But It’s Time To Thrive

By Kathi Pelton

I often think that we aren’t aware of when we begin living out of a 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑣𝑖𝑣𝑎𝑙 𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑑𝑠𝑒𝑡. It is like an old default setting that was hardwired into our souls that we depend upon when things around us begin to be out of our ability to control them.

For me, I learned early on in life to be an expert at 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑣𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔. This did not serve me well when it came to issues of surrender or intimacy because the thought behind every surviver mentality is that there is something bad and tragic to survive. And I had a lot happen that reinforced that belief.

In my early years of walking with Jesus, I began to understanding that I couldn’t grow without letting go. I had to learn the difference between surviving and overcoming. Surviving kept me alive but didn’t allow me to thrive because it was rooted in trauma and self-preservation. The kindness and love of fhe Father began to teach me that overcoming was what He desired which is rooted in dependency and trust; not in me or my self-preservation but in full surrender and yielding to Him alone.

This was not an overnight process because the hardwiring to survive and the expectation of being left alone was at my core. It was a process of facing frightening times and deep fears and choosing surrender rather than protection. I had to allow my heart to risk loving and being loved. Surviving put a lock on my heart but overcoming was to open that door 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑔𝑜 𝑙𝑎𝑦 𝑑𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝐽𝑒𝑠𝑢𝑠 𝑖𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑚𝑖𝑑𝑠𝑡 𝑜𝑓 𝑎 𝑠𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑚.

I remember when my family brought a foster baby into our home. I could feel my heart falling deeply in love with this little boy. Somehow I knew deep inside that he was only “on loan“ to us. I had a choice- I could merely care for him and survive losing him or I could open my heart and give him all the love he deserved and I had wifhin me to give. So, knowing that my heart would face incredible loss I gave it fully to him. For four years I loved that little boy with everything in me. It was so beautiful! Most days I’d lay down with him during his nap time and just stare at him, pray for him and tears would often flow as I overcame what I knew was coming. Sure enough that day came but through the terrible pain I had no regrets because I hadn’t held anything back. He would carry throughout his life all the love that I’d poured into him even if he didn’t remember me. And I would always have the memory and beauty of four years of loving the sweetest little boy. It’s been six years since then and I have no regrets. I learned to overcome so that I could experience deep intimacy rather than merely survive and experience only the shallow places.

There is a healing that is being offered by the Father that takes your hand and walks you into the deeper waters of surrender and trust so that you can experience the fullness of beauty, intimacy and encounter. Will pain still come? Yes, but you won’t merely survive pain but thrive in the midst of pain. Surrender has been the greatest gift because it allows me to 𝑙𝑒𝑡 𝑔𝑜!
In that place I find that I experience being held by the arms of my God when I feel like pain leaves me unable to breathe. His love and intimate presence becomes my breath and my overcoming strength. It is then that I thrive!

My life is so much richer from having loved when loss was a high risk. I’ve done that many times now. Actually, all earthly love (except for our love for Jesus) has that risk. But the choice is to self-preserve and hold back or to lay it all down and love fully knowing that the the 𝙊𝙣𝙚 𝙎𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙇𝙤𝙫𝙚 will carry us through the times of loss and pain. I have always gained far more then I lost when I’ve given all of me.

It’s time to give 𝑎𝑙𝑙 𝑜𝑓 𝑦𝑜𝑢 to the One who gave all of Him for you. Ask Him to reset you to the default of an overcomer not merely a survivor. Again, overcoming takes dependency, surrender and letting go of control. It’s so worth rhe cost!

It’s time to thrive while you’re alive- not only survive. Holy Spirit come and do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Help us to let go and find where you are in the midst of storms so that we can lay down with you…𝑙𝑒𝑎𝑛𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑜𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑒𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑙𝑎𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑎𝑟𝑚𝑠.

This Is The Most Profound Encounter I Have Ever Had— And It’s For You…

By Kathi Pelton

Since this virus hit our world I began hearing the Lord inviting us to come and sit at His table.

Then, He took me into a vision that became an encounter. In this encounter it was Springtime, as I could see the cherry blossom petals blowing all around. I saw Jesus knocking on the heart of His Bride (the Church) and she opened the door but He could not come in; for it was too cluttered. It was crammed full (overflowing) with “spiritual things” yet nothing of true eternal value. Then our Bridegroom asked her if He could clean her heart and she said, “Yes, give me a clean heart.”

He then proceeded to pull EVERYTHING out. When it was completely cleared and empty of everything but His presence at work, He brought in a small table and set it in the middle of this room (heart). Then He places two chairs at this table. After setting the chairs down He placed a loaf of bread and a glass of wine on the table and He sat down. He then spoke and said,

As the bride sat down at this table of intimacy and began to partake of Him the glory of the Lord filled the room. She fell on her face at His feet and began to pour herself over His feet.

Come My Bride, come eat of Me and drink of Me— let us dine together on all that you need.

– Let us say “yes” to Him; come clean our hearts, set up His table and partake of His body and blood. May His glory fill the temple and power from on high come upon us as we pour ourselves out over His feet. –

Affections and Idols

By Kathi Pelton

As I was surveying the current state of the world around us, I was struck by the reality of the vast amount of distractions that have pulled on our “affections” prior to this Covid-19 quarantine.

From the activities of going to a restaurant for a meal– to seeing a movie– to shopping for one more thing– to attending a sports event(or watching one on TV)– we are constantly having our time filled with things that entertain and comfort us. Even Christian conferences, concerts and events have become a form of entertainment that has consumed the affections of many believers.

But suddenly they have all been removed. As I was pondering the issue of how all of these things that pull on our affections and how they have suddenly been removed I had a quick vision of idols falling. I don’t think that most people set out to or intentionally make any of these things idols but anything that exults itself above Christ or is vying for our attention and affections above God becomes an idol.

God, in His mercy, is aligning!

Prophetic voices have been prophesying “alignment” for a long time. We’ve been taking about the plumb line of God coming to align His people. It’s been happening on a small scale but not like we’d hoped or like we could see in the spirit. Now, suddenly it’s happening. We now can see the pull that these other things have had upon our affections— yes, even conferences and ministry events.

Are they bad? NO! Of course not. They are wonderful gifts but they were never meant to replace the personal, face to face time with our God. But if they become the focus of our affections that have replaced personal time with God and time in His Word then alignment is needed.

I remember when my husband and I had young children we felt to turn off cable and get rid of our TV because it had become a distraction to true face to face family time. The first week of its absence was like “going through withdrawals!” It had become the background noise in our home and it called for our attention to be turned toward it all the time. After that first week we adjusted and began spending greater quality time with God and with one another. Alignment took place in our family. We removed the thing that was becoming an idol because it was demanding our affections. Our souls wanted to be appeased which left our spirits malnourished.

As we go through this time let’s begin to take personal inventory of those things that have been removed that pull for our affections even more than God. We can repent and ask for alignment so that when these things are once again available we will live in alignment and balance. Let’s not have this crisis be a “mere moment” of sobriety from things that have become idols or distractions that have gained our affections above the Lord.

Ask the Holy Spirit to realign your priorities and the affections of your heart and soul. This truly is a moment in time that we are “coming back to our senses!”

I also want to encourage you to get face to face with your family members; those who are closed in with you! Let God rekindle the love between you and your spouse and let this be a time of restoration between parents and children. Share your hearts, carve out time that you walk together, play together, talk together and even heal together.

Let’s see our affections redeemed and those things that have become idols fall. Soon we will be able to eat out, see a movie, enjoy a sports event or attend a Christian gathering but let’s never again allow these thing to have a higher place then Jesus! May His throne in our private lives have the highest place!

Get Out Of Your Head!

By Kathi Pelton

Have you ever found your mind trying to intellectually comprehend a matter of faith? It’s like a blind man trying to picture in his mind something he has never seen or felt. Your mind must yield to the faith that your heart and spirit know to be true without the demand of comprehension.

Next time your mind begins to try to take the lead on a matter of faith, tell yourself, “Get out of your head and into your heart.”

The believer’s heart trusts God! There is no wavering, no figuring it out, no wondering or even doubting…just pure childlike trust. His children’s hearts sings continually that He is a good, good Father! The heart that beats from the posture of faith finds rest in the place of surrender and abandoned assurance in who He is and in His promises.

On the other hand the head will try to filter faith through circumstances and natural things. The unyielded mind will try to usurp faith with natural reasoning which will quickly rob the believer of peace. The head will always try to understand what the heart is sure of so why not just remain in the heart?

Of course God gave you a mind and gives you wisdom and understanding of how to walk forward in decisions that need to be made and actions that need to be taken. But your trust in God, your rest and your peace must surpass your understanding. This happens in the place of abiding in your heart and spirit; not in your head.

When your thoughts are leading you on paths that rob you of peace and trust then you can know that the enemy is alluring you down a path where he intends to kill, steal or destroy your faith. Once he does this he replaces peace and trust with anxiety, panic, doubt, unbelief and fear. You will always know that you are being persuaded to leave your posture of faith and trust when your thoughts begin to rob you of peace and take you into “understanding.” Remember, God’s peace surpasses natural understanding.

God’s people need to quickly learn to train their minds to submit to their hearts (your spirit) when it is going down paths that do not honor God’s truth. Wondering minds that stray from truth need to be bridled and brought back to the assurance of faith.

Refuse to show compassion to the flesh when it spews unbelief because it breathes death upon the faith that dwells in the spirit, giving life and breath.

Become ruthless with training your flesh and mind to come into continual alignment with trust and faith. When you begin to align with unbelief it merely creates a an atmosphere of being a doubting, worry, anxiety and self-pity. The flesh must learn to submit to the Spirit if God and align with where your heart abides.

This quote by Bill Johnson speaks to this matter so well. He said,

“Questions raised in the atmosphere of trust release revelation but questions raised in the atmosphere of distrust release unbelief.”

You can have questions but they must be question from the heart of trust rather than from the place of distrust and doubt. When your thought process begins in doubt it will quickly lead you to unbelief. Your mind must be submitting to truth and trained (even bridled in necessary) to let your hearts (spirits) create a continual atmosphere of trust. Then revelation, wisdom and peace will flood in and make a path that is filled with faith, trust and joy.

God is good! His faithfulness is sure and unchanging from generation to generation. If your mind is not creating an atmosphere filled with the truth of His goodness and faithfulness then go back to your heart. If your heart has been soiled by the unbelief in your mind then ask His Spirit to create in you a new heart that is pure and undefined by unbelief. His Spirit will lead you back to truth and to the paths that lead you forth in joy and peace!

““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. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the LORD’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever.””
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-13‬ ‭

He Makes The Darkness Tremble

by Kathi Pelton

As many of you know, I asked for prayer yesterday (and wow, I got it!). I have an amazing prayer team that covers us, our ministry and our family so I don’t normally “go public!” Yesterday I did because I knew that the name of Jesus makes the darkness tremble and that my faithful friends and followers would speak His name and each time they would that light would dispel darkness.

I don’t know if what I’ve been dealing with recently is warfare, just being worn-down or witchcraft (or all three) but I do know that, whatever the case is, His name sheds light and changes the atmosphere! Just the mention of His name makes the darkness tremble! Through His grace I can handle difficult circumstances and physical challenges (not that I invite them!) but when I can’t find the One my heart longs for it becomes time to make the darkness tremble at the mention of His name!

There has been a increased level of warfare coming at God’s people. I don’t say that to glorify the enemy or to focus on the battle but as God’s people have been arising with such beauty, unity, power and surrender they are taking back ground that has been long held by the enemy. His “kingdom” is being shaken by the unshakable Kingdom of God! A great army is arising…dry bones are coming to life! This has created a great battle in the heavens and on the earth.

As we witness tragedies like the death of Toby Mac’s young son, the suicides of well-loved and known young pastors, and the intense warfare over our leaders and president, we must remember that we have a name that we can all upon who rescues and saves. When I’m at a complete loss I will often just sit and repeat His name over and over. His name washes over me like waves of mercy that remove the fog and confusion. Within His name is every answer needed to rescue and save us from even the greatest despair.

As I read about the loss of Toby Mac’s, and his wife Amanda’s, sudden loss of their precious son, all I could do was speak the name of Jesus as a prayer over them. Jesus knows what it is like to feel the weight of the deepest grief and our Heavenly Father has also watched His Son die. He is acquainted with with our sorrows and deepest grief.

“He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.” Isaiah 53:3

Jesus took all grief, sorrow, sin and hopelessness upon Himself on the cross and purchased victory. We are no longer hopeless, even in death! We are comforted by the victory of eternal life and a grace that carries us into His resurrection. Jesus not only made the darkness tremble but He defeated death and the grave! He is always the joy set before us; there is no circumstance in which we have been left to utter hopelessness. His life and light gives us an abiding place where hope is alive.

When you feel the darkness closing in around you, declare the name of Jesus and watch the darkness tremble. When death surrounds you, Jesus brings the hope of resurrection life! When sorrow overwhelms you, Jesus comforts you and lifts you up out of despair. When lack is all you see, Jesus blesses your “small offering” and feeds the multitudes; leaving you with much more than you began with (see Mark 8:8). Victory is sure, no matter the circumstance; for nothing can reverse what He has already done!

We do face sorrows and suffering but not without hope. We face battles but with victory assured, because the greatest battle is death and that has already been defeated!

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

The darkness cannot separate you from the love of God that is in our precious Savior! He makes the darkness tremble and He opens graves with resurrection life! Just the mention of His name brings light and life.

Thank you to all who mentioned His name over my life yesterday! You brought light and lifted me above the darkness. Let’s do that for those in need today. Let’s call out on the name of Jesus for those suffering and in deep grief

. We are an army of light and His name is written upon our hearts. We will arise and declare into the atmosphere and into nations the worth of Jesus. We will shout about the victory of our King.

Let’s join Him in making the darkness tremble today! Release so much light that even graves burst open with resurrection life! An army of light is rising up declaring the name of Jesus!

The Power of Stillness

by Kathi Pelton

Many of you have been in a time of great spiritual momentum and it’s been a source of accelerating you forward. But, do not become discouraged or dismayed if a sudden and unexpected stillness, pause or what may even feel like “delay” comes upon your time of acceleration. Remember this; God moves mightily when we get still.

There is a familiar verse in the Bible that talks about this,

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”

Psalm 46:10

There is an amazing spiritual thing that happens when God calls His bride to be still. Suddenly, we make room for Him to move. At times our activity can begin to take the lead but as we hear His invitation to “be still” we will enter into a deeper trust and abiding rest that gives Him room to take the lead and make clear the way ahead.

Many years ago our family was in one of the most significant transitions of our lives and the warfare against this transition began to hit on every front. I felt like I’d been put on the defense rather than the offense where I had been positioned prior to the resistance. One day, during this time, I was seeking the Lord and He took me into a vision that gave me deeper understanding of how to walk through my transition or this “threshold” of life that I was in.

In the vision I was dressed as a bride and was standing next to my Bridegroom, Jesus. We were at the threshold of crossing into our honeymoon suite. I was so excited for this new beginning that I was about to rush over the threshold ahead of Him. Just then Jesus stopped me and said,

“My bride, allow Me to carry you over the thresholds of life because it is in stillness and the posture of being fully yielding to my strength and arms that you will cross over without being disturbed. You will be carried in intimacy.”

At that point (in the vision) I ceased my “running ahead” and paused (got still) so that He could pick me up and carry me over the threshold. As He carried me over the threshold I looked down and below me I saw a great battle that I was being carried above in the arms of My Savior. Had I rushed ahead, I would have entered a huge battleground (or army of resistance) that the enemy had set for me but, because I got still, I was carried over it and the enemy was put under the feet of Jesus.

After that vision I got very still and invited the Lord to carry me and the incredible warfare I had been experiencing suddenly ceased. There was such protection and peace in my pause and my stillness.

If you are in a time of transition and you suddenly feel or hear the “pause…be still” then know that you may actually be at the point of crossing over and your obedience to pause and be carried will create a smooth and seamless transition over the threshold of your new beginning.

Here are a few encouraging verses to help you in your pause, rest and stillness:

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14

• My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Psalm 131:1-2

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15

There are many more like these…may you let His strength become your strength as you enter into quietness and trust. Let LOVE carry you.

He’s In The Waiting

by Kathi Pelton

There is a popular Christian song called, “Take Courage” that has a line in it that says, “He’s in the waiting” There are many of you that have been in the middle of a transition and it seems to be lingering longer than is comfortable for the human soul. It feels a bit like “living in limbo.”

This song goes on to say,

And You who hold the stars

Who call them each by name

Will surely keep Your promise to me

That I will rise in Your victory

And hold onto your hope

As your triumph unfolds

He’s never failing

He’s never failing

So take courage my heart

Stay steadfast my soul

He’s in the waiting

Yesterday I heard Him say,

“Great authority is being gained as you trust Me ‘in the waiting.’”

Many of you are holding onto His promise; hoping in Him in absolute trust even though you do not see the way and do not understand the why. But know this; your stillness is building an authority, a trustworthiness and a surrender that will make the fulfillment so much sweeter.

Our souls are learning stillness and rest in the unknown. There is a great discipline in stillness because our human nature wants to make something happen or to rush ahead. We are entering days where it will be so important to know when to be still and to when to know that He has spoken to “Go.”

This summer I was a part of a national gathering where for an hour straight over a thousand people stood in silence. It was a holy time but it was hard to “wait.” We couldn’t see what God was doing and our souls were restless to do something or make something happen. But He made it clear that we were making room for Him to move. There are times when God asks us to stop and wait in silent trust because we are making room for Him. We surrender control and our activity for the sake of heaven coming to earth.

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Be still…He’s in the waiting! Though He is not still, we are still. The Hebrew definition of “stillness” is to stop striving, to let go, and to surrender.

Another definition is to “hush” or quiet yourself (such as when Jesus spoke to the storm, “Peace, be still.” When my children were young we were living in Canada but all of our extended family lived in California. Twice a year we would take the twenty hour drive home to be with family. During those drives often our kids would begin to whine and say, “Aren’t we there yet?” They would become restless in the waiting and I would have to resort to giving them what we called “A silent time out.” This meant that they had to spend fifteen minutes in silence. By the end of it the wrestle with their restless souls were brought into stillness once again.

It is tempting to begin whining to God and say, “Aren’t we there yet?” But be still! You’ll know when it’s time. You can choose to rest and cease striving or arrive at the destination worn out from not surrendering control.

Be assured that He is able to get you where you need to be in the time that you need to be there. Stay in His timing and know that “He’s in the waiting.”

The YES Explosion! A Divine Encounter

by Kathi Pelton

As I have been traveling the past number of months I noticed that almost everywhere I’ve gone something particular would happen during worship. In each place the song of the Lord would come upon the worship team and an amazingly pure sound would be released that always had the words, “We say yes!” within it.

During one of these times of worship in Bend, Oregon this past June, the song of the Lord with the words “We say yes” once again began to pour out. It was such a pure and deep sound from the Bride to her Bridegroom.

Yet, this time as the words were being sung I was suddenly taken into an spiritual encounter. I found myself looking upon the scene at Calvary as Jesus was being laid upon the cross.

The soldiers took the nails and as they hammered each nail through our Lord’s hands and feet, He would let out a deep and loud cry but what I heard in the cry was the word, “YES!” It was Jesus’ “yes” to His Father and to His bride as He yielded to giving His life for the ones that He so greatly loved. With each pound the hammer upon the nails that pierced through Him, another shout and cry of “YES” would be released. It was the sound of agape love that gives up all for the ones who are loved. “Yes, My Bride, I give My all for you.” It was the most agonizing and yet beautiful sound I have ever heard.

Then I saw the “Yes” of our Savior and Bridegroom go forth through time and it intercepted with the “Yes” of the bride that was pouring out in this hour from His bride. As the “Yes” of the Bride and the “Yes” of the Bridegroom intersected (like the past and present coming together in a divine collision) they released what looked like a sonic boom that went out across the world.

Suddenly I saw what appeared to be millions of men, women and children across the world drop to their knees and surrender their lives to Jesus. They all began to cry out, “Yes” in surrender to our Savior. No one said a word to them but the “combustion” of the “Yes” of the bride and her Bridegroom had released a spirit of revelation over the earth.

I found myself saying, “Lord, did millions of people just come to know you by a sovereign revelation that this was released?”

His response was,

“No, Kathi. It was billions!”

There is a deep, pure and fully surrendered yielding that is building within the hearts of His bride at this time that cries out, “Yes! Take all of me. I give my all for the One my heart loves.” This sound of surrender will collide with the sound of surrender that our Savior cried out when He gave His all for His bride.

It two sounds of surrender release the invitation and words found in Revelation 22:17,

The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.

We cry out “Yes!” Worthy is the Lamb to receive all honor, glory and dominion! Hold nothing back. Billions around the world are waiting for the revelation of what they long and are thirsting for. Do not hold anything back, for His “Yes” and our “Yes” are about to send forth a sonic boom that carries the revelation of Jesus throughout the earth.
