His Presence Changes Everything

by Kathi Pelton

What an amazing reality to know that when you wake up each morning that His presence is right there with you. Then, when you lay down at night He remains present— and in every moment throughout each day.

When I was a young believer and newly married I got up one morning to see my young husband prostate on the floor in prayer. I could tell that he was weeping and I was deeply moved by the tenderness in my husband’s heart. When he finally got up from the floor I looking at his tear stained face and said,

“Wow, you must have had a powerful time with Jesus!”

He shocked me because he responded by saying, “No, I wasn’t able to breakthrough into His presence.”

I stood before him utterly confused because I had read the verse from Deuteronomy 31:6-8 that says,

“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

I had only been a believer a short time but I was sure that we didn’t have to “breakthrough into His presence!” Somewhere in my young husband’s sensitive conscience and desire to “be holy” he had come to believe that he had to work to gain access into the presence of God; the enemy was only too happy to convince him that he’d never done enough to arrive (thankfully, God set him free of that lie!).

We may have to “strive to enter into rest”; not because we have to earn it but because we have to train our souls to surrender to trust and peace; but His presence is with us always. He’s not absent, distant, mad or critical— He waits, watches and does not ever waver in His faithfulness to be with us always.

The knowledge that He is always with me and His Spirit (which is Him!) dwells within me changes everything. The God who spoke the entirety of creation into existence is with us always! There is nothing that you will go through or face alone. NOTHING!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2

You continually have all that you need because He is with you. Your comforter, deliverer, provider, protector, friend, warrior, counselor, teacher, helper, lover, King and Savior is present with you day and every night. Not because you did anything to earn it but because His death on the cross tore the veil that separated us. It is grace that opened up the way. He paid the full price for His presence to be opened up to us. We can boldly and confidently go before His throne!

I want to say it again…HIS PRESENCE CHANGES EVERYTHING!! He is before you, behind you and beside you. He’s been where you are going and He’s been where you have already gone.

I am continually in awe when I look back on my life at how at every turn He’s prepared the way for me. Of course I’ve faced my share of hard times and even seasons of deep grief, but He was always present to comfort me and make a way through the wilderness. The older I get the more I can look back on my own journey as a living testimony that declares, “He has never left me, nor forsaken me!”

I woke up today with such a tangible awareness of His presence with me and around me. It filled me with such expectation of wondering what He will do next— because everything changes in His presence!

“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11

What amazing and unfathomable thing will He surprise us with today? Yesterday He surprised dear friends of ours with a testimony that left me in such awe! When I heard the testimony of what God did, I wanted to run into the arms of Jesus and embrace Him for being so very good and faithful. His faithfulness toward them overflowed onto me like a flood of joy.

He is with you and in His presence is joy (Ps. 16:11) , peace and rest (Ex. 33:14), refreshing (Acts 3:20-21), help (John14:26), wisdom and instruction (Ps. 25:5-9), mercy and grace (Heb. 4:16), salvation (Zep. 3:17), justice (Ps. 37:5-6), fruitfulness (Jer. 17:7-8)…and so much more!

Release His presence into all that is around you…and watch as it changes everything.

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!

It’s Always Darkness Before The Dawn…Breakthrough Is Coming!

By Kathi Pelton

“My soul yearns for you in the night, and in the morning my spirit searches and looks out for you” Isaiah 26:9

Are you facing a darkness that has left you without sight or light? Throughout my life I have often found that right before the dawn breaks through, the darkness will appear as though it will swallow me alive. I have also learned through those dark moments to stand on the truth that I know rather than on what I see (or in those moments…what I can’t see!).

We often throw around these little quotes such as, It’s always darkest before the dawn.” or “The end is merely signaling your new beginning.” after we’ve come through the darkness. But if you are standing in the midst of the darkest hour, I’d like to encourage you to make that place a holy place. Allow the yearning of your soul in the dark night to become the sound of surrender. Cry out to the One who is the Light of the World and in the midst of the darkness declare that you have been given a great light.

Rather than let the darkness swallow you, let the light of Christ swallow the darkness. The times in life that leave you standing in the dark can become the most holy moments as you learn to declare His faithfulness and goodness in the face of opposing circumstances. As you declare the truth of who He is and offer the worship that He is due, the darkness suddenly becomes swallowed up in victory.

“Death is swallowed up in victory.” “

O death, where is your victory? O death where is your sting?”” 1 Corinthians 15:55

What if you replace the word death with darkness? Surely darkness is swallowed up in victory when we declare His glorious goodness and light.

Some of my greatest victories have been won in my darkest hours. As I learned to allow His light to shine forth in the darkness, I was given victory over the power of darkness that was seeking to swallow me up. It is time to gain victory over the power that darkness has had over you!

I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:1-3

The dawn will come and it will illuminate the testimony of Jesus that was forged in the darkness! Just like in Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego walked in the fire and came forth victorious; so will you!

Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the fire. And the satraps, the prefects, the governors, and the king’s counselors gathered together and saw that the fire had not had any power over the bodies of those men. The hair of their heads was not singed, their cloaks were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them. Daniel 3:26-27

The power of darkness will not have consumed you, singed you nor harmed you because you know that the Light of the World is standing there with you. Just like the smell of fire was not found upon these three who walked in the flames, neither will despair, depression or hopelessness come upon you as you recognize that you are not alone in the darkness…for there is another standing with you and there is NO darkness in Him!

Now is the time to raise your hallelujah! Yes, right in the midst of the darkness and in the presence of your enemy. That is when you raise your voice and sing a little louder until you see the darkness flee. The power of the cross will swallow up the power of darkness!

The dawn of victory is about to rise. Let the light of the new day reveal the testimony of Jesus that is being formed in the darkness, while no one is looking. Let darkness hear the sound of your victory song and see the dance of the overcomer. Darkness can not withstand the light…so let your light shine.

This just might be your finest hour!

The Wilderness You’ve Been Going Through Is Your Door of Hope

by Kathi Pelton

Some of you have been going through a time of deep pain, deep longing and what you’d describe as a wilderness time. Many years ago I went through such a time and during those few years I honestly wondered if I’d survive the pain and darkness that surrounded my soul.

During that time I was often awake in the middle of the night trying to find my way through the unrelenting pain. One night, in the midst of the thick wilderness, I began to hear the words from the Book of Hosea flowing through my heart like a stream of hope upon my dry and thirsty soul. The words are from Hosea 2:14-23,

““Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will respond as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master. ’ I will remove the names of the Baals from her lips; no longer will their names be invoked. In that day I will make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the creatures that move along the ground. Bow and sword and battle I will abolish from the land, so that all may lie down in safety. I will betroth you to me forever; I will betroth you in righteousness and justice, in love and compassion. I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the Lord. “In that day I will respond,” declares the Lord — “I will respond to the skies, and they will respond to the earth; and the earth will respond to the grain, the new wine and the olive oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will plant her for myself in the land; I will show my love to the one I called ‘Not my loved one. ’ I will say to those called ‘Not my people, ’ ‘You are my people’; and they will say, ‘You are my God.’ ””

These verses became my lifeline! They gave me purpose in the pain and points for prayer. God hadn’t taken me into the wilderness to ruin me but rather to restore me! In His incredible mercy, He drew me into a place that was set apart because He loved me too much to leave me content with less than the fullness of what He intended for my life.

There, in the wilderness, I became aware of all the “masters of my soul” and I became keenly aware of the captivity that the busyness of my life had hidden in the locked closets of my soul. I was laid bare and in the midst of naked vulnerability He covered me with His love, He healed my wounds, dressed me in His righteousness and He betrothed me to Him; changing my identity to, “I am my Beloved’s and He is mine.” (Songs of Solomon 6:3)

‭Though it was the most painful time of my life; it was the most important time in my life. I am forever grateful that He “allured me into the wilderness to speak tenderly to me and to restore me.” During that three year wilderness my life was saved and everything changed. I was set free to truly live, truly be loved and truly breathe in the beauty of salvation.

The wilderness is not without purpose! Rarely is it only a moment but rather a journey. My wilderness changed when I began to understand that there was a divine purpose in it. Prior to that it was merely agonizing pain that was leaving me stuck. As soon as I found the purpose through the verses in Hosea, I began to partner with God to walk into freedom upon the path He had forged for me.

Your wilderness is not without purpose. Winter is for only for a season but you must go through that season to get to the springtime. If you are in a wilderness season; you are not in the wilderness alone. God is with you there. You are surrounded by angelic hosts that have been assigned to you— to minister to you. Holy Spirit is with you to reveal the purpose and the path to you. It’s not a place to build homes or remain but a place to journey “through.”

It is a place of redemption! It is a place where you are set free and a place where you are betrothed. My life truly began in the wilderness when I discovered He was there with me. From that point onward I moved forward and left behind the masters I had served and the chains that had held me captive. Some call it, “the dark night of the soul” but I call it the “door of hope.” My valley of weeping became the threshold of true joy and freedom.

When I emerged from this season into my springtime my husband gave me a gift. It was the verses from Songs of Solomon 2:10-13 engraved on slate. They read,

“My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.””

Don’t stop moving forward because the purpose of your wilderness is redemption! The winter will pass and flowers will appear. The sound of the dove’s song will be heard once again. You will bear fruit once again and intimacy will surround you like the fragrance of a garden in full bloom.

You are in a doorway of hope. Though weeping lasts a night…joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5).

Another “YES” Vision

by Kathi Pelton

Today I once again saw a vision of people giving their “YES” to the Lord. For many, their “Yes” came out of their own need; such as the widow did when she gave her last coins in Luke 21. Though they had little to offer, they added their “Yes” to follow Him and to give their all.

“And He looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the treasury, and He saw also a certain poor widow putting in two mites. So He said, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all; for all these out of their abundance have put in offerings for God, but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had.” Luke 21:1-4

In this vision I saw the Lord receive their “Yes” as if it were a coin or a “widow’s mite” offering. As it was received by the Lord, it was multiplied and prospered. It began to rain coins of provision upon the one who had said, “Yes!” All that they needed to follow Him, to be sent out and to obey His voice was released in response to their “yes offering.”

For a number of weeks now I keep hearing the words, “It is the time of the widow’s mite offering.” Each time that I hear it I see the words, “Change for change.” I sense that this is the heart that the Lord is searching for. He is looking for the ones who give their all. This is a pleasing sacrifice that will bring about a shift or change even in your natural resources.

It is the posture that declares, “He is worthy of it all!” It also declares that we trust in the Lord with all of our hearts. I don’t know what this looks like for each one of you but the Lord does. Ask Him.

There is a “Yes offering” that is being given in this hour that is breaking the ceiling that has held you down. It is releasing a prosperity that makes a way for your yes to be resourced. It will take you into all the world so that many more will give their yes.

Your “yes” is sending you out!You will be ambassadors of light and truth into a world of darkness and deception. Your yes is resounding through the atmosphere and reaching the heart of God. It is the future and hope that He has for you and for all who will be transformed by the light and truth that you are carrying.

“Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” John‬ ‭17:18-21‬ ‭

We give our “YES” to you, Lord.

Your “Yes” Will Prosper and Break Barriers!

by Kathi Pelton

I have had a very busy travel schedule this season and as I have been in many different places I have taken notice that a theme resounds every place that I go; it is the sound of sons and daughters giving their, “Yes” to the Lord.

This is not a subtle sound but a thundering sound of fully yielded hearts and surrendered lives. It is released in their prayers, their worship and their declarations like a thunderclap that echos through the atmosphere.

During the past few weeks I have had numerous visions and revelations regarding this sound and I’d like to share two of them with you.

In one, I saw the “Yes” being released from the individual voices and corporate gatherings going before the Lord. Their “Yes” was being funded by heavenly resources. As it was released on earth it was being touched with prosperity. Angels were bringing everything needed for their “Yes” to be accomplished. It was a heavenly partnership being fully funded by supernatural resources.

Next, I was taken into an encounter where I found myself at Calvary where Jesus was being nailed to the cross. I was completely overcome by the weight and magnitude of the weight of His surrender to such agony. Then, I heard the pounding of the nails as they pierced His hands and feet. He cried out in such excruciating pain but what I heard was “the yes of Jesus!” It was His yes to dying so that we might live. It resounded through the atmosphere of time like a great thunderclap. Each pound of the nails and cry of pain was like another thunderclap. Then I was taken back to the worship service that I was in where surrendered sons and daughters were shouting out their “Yes”; to die to self and live fully for Christ. Suddenly, the yes of Jesus 2000 years ago and the yes of His children now were being intermingled as one resounding YES! As it intermingled it went forth like a sonic boom! I saw it resound through the atmosphere worldwide. The sound waves went out like a “sound tsunami” that was building in strength and power. As it went forth I saw it spark revival everywhere it touched. I literally heard the “Yes” of new believers throughout the world that equaled “billions!” Not millions but billions of souls shouting their yes to Christ!

This is the hour of the YES! The years prior have prepared a people that would yield and surrender all for the sake of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His worth. The YES has begun already but I believe that it will hit a “critical mass” in 2020 creating this sonic boom that sends forth sound energy and waves of His glorious love and power.

The definition of a sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves created whenever an object travelling through the air travels faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding similar to an explosion or a thunderclap to the human ear. This is why I heard the sound of “Yes” in both encounters come as a thunderclap. This intermingled “yes” that merges the yes of Jesus when He died so that we might live and the yes of His sons and daughters to die to self so that He might live through them will break the sound barrier. It will release the sound that breaks down demonic barriers that have prevented ears from hearing the sound of His love and salvation.

Your yes is needed. Heaven is prospering your yes with supernatural resources and it is being intermingled with the sound of Jesus’ yes when He surrendered to the cross. It is the trip wire that will spark revival! It is the sound that breaks the barriers and releases a tsunami sound wave of revival that will harvest billions of souls.

Just say YES!

It’s Transition Time! Your Segue To Something New

by Kathi Pelton

I returned last night from a trip where we helped facilitate a thirty-hour worship an prayer burn. During these thirty hours there was a “transition” every two hours where the musicians and prayer leaders would change. The beautiful flow that had been carried and unbroken for the previous two hours would reach a segue moment, where as smoothly as possible a new group of musicians and prayer leaders would take their place. Then a new sound and “flavor” would begin taking us into new realms of beauty.

As I woke up this morning in a personal transition from one event in Florida, back to a few days at home, and then onto another event this weekend, I heard the Lord speak to me about these transition moments or “segue” moments in our lives.

First, we need to understand that a segue is defined as a “smooth transition.” We experience segues in worship sets when skilled musicians can transition from one song to another, possibly in a different key. There is an art and skill to make that transition smooth rather than abrupt so the flow is not disrupted. There are segues in conversations that cause a change of subject to flow smoothly rather than being confusing and disruptive. The listener may be completely unaware that a transition has occurred; the flow was not broken because of a skilled segue. Learning to navigate life’s transitions or segues is just as important.

Today the Lord spoke to me saying that many of His people are about to be—or are already in—transition moments. He said that if you will allow His Spirit to navigate you through them He will cause it to be a “segue” (smooth transition) rather than an abrupt interruption. When the old (what you were previously doing) abruptly and suddenly stops, it can interrupt the flow and be jarring emotionally and spiritually and cause disruption to those around you. But God desires to give you a segue rather than an interruption.

A segue is still a transition from one thing to a different thing, but the difference is that it is smooth and does not stop the flow. The Spirit of the Lord is so skilled at creating segues in our lives. When He navigates these times they do not bring trauma or disrupt flow. They become a beautiful corridor that ushers you smoothly from one place to another. The place of transition can be beautiful when Holy Spirit is in it.

I think by nature many of us live for the “peak” moments where experiences and events crescendo isn’t breakthrough, but there can also be such beauty, peace, and joy found in the transition times. When you invite the Spirit of the Lord to turn your transition into an anointed segue then the people around you will hardly notice that a change has occurred, because it happened so naturally and peacefully. You will flow smoothly into your new season without disruption, disturbance, and stress.

I have been through many transition moments in my life and ministry. In the early years they were rough! I tried to navigate them with my understanding and found myself stressed and overwhelmed by the process. By the time the transition was completed, I was depleted! But throughout the years I have discovered that as I yield to the Spirit that a beautiful and peaceful segue from one season to another is created for me. But it truly takes an unbroken flow of surrender and of remaining “in the Spirit” to embrace and encounter them.

If you are sensing that one season of your life is coming to a close and another is about to begin, ask the Lord to give you an anointed, Spirit-led segue. This will assure that peace and joy remain in the transition.

On a side note: in my experience, when we don’t yield to seeing a smooth transition it not only creates a break in the flow for you personally but it is disruptive to those around you. What does not occur naturally and smoothly will feel “unnatural and harsh.” This will often create an atmosphere where people become offended, confused, and disheartened and “breaks” occur. We do not want our transitions to cause a break but to usher everyone into the new with unbroken beauty.

It is time for spiritual segues to occur in place of rough and intrusive breaks. “Spirit come! Come and usher us through spiritual segues that flow naturally and are hardly noticed. Thank you that You are the God of the crescendos and the God of the segues. We yield to the sound and the movements of the way transitions are supposed to be experienced.” Amen

There Is A “Sound Swell”— It’s The Sound of Revival!

by Kathi Pelton

There is a sound that is swelling in the atmosphere that will ignite revival throughout the world— it is the sound of the “laid down lovers” intermingled with the sound of the One who laid His life down.

I was taken into an encounter where I found myself before our precious Jesus as His hands were being nailed to the cross. With each pound of the hammer He let out a great cry. Yet in this encounter His cry was heard in my spirit as, “Yes! I lay Myself down!” Each cry was His yes given to save us— the “Yes” of One who is purchasing back His Bride.

Then I was taken to crowds of believers who were giving their “Yes” to lay down their lives for the sake of Christ. Their “Yes” was an unconditional and fully abandoned “Yes!” Then, suddenly the “Yes” of Christ from 2000 years ago, as He was being nailed to the cross, and the “Yes” of His sons and daughters today went forth as one sound. The echo of His yes and our yes intermingled into a sound of revival. I saw billions (not millions but billions) come to Christ in response to this sound!

An explosion of the sound of “Yes” is the trip wire that will signal revival…worldwide revival. No man, no law and nothing will be able to stop the sound. Old and young will run to hear the sound, to encounter the Man and to add their “Yes!” The “critical mass” required to for a chain reaction of salvation and purification is about to occur!

Do you feel and hear the swell of this sound? Release your “YES!” It is the unconditional yes that holds nothing back but rather it lays down all for the sake of the One who laid down His all. It is the yes of those who are completely dependent and surrendered. It is the yes that declares, “He is worthy of it all!”

The Great Exchange: “Change for Change” NOW IS THE HOUR!

by Kathi Pelton

In 2005 my family was living in British Columbia, Canada as directors of a house of prayer called, The War Room. As US citizens we could not receive income and the Lord had asked us to live by faith in His provision.

On one particular Sunday that year we were really in some dire straits. We were out of money with the exception of some change in the bottom of my purse. In Canada they have one and two dollar coins called “loonies and toonies” (the loonie is a one dollar coin and the toonies are the two dollar coin). I had a couple of both coins that I was holding onto for milk for our family.

During the offering that Sunday morning the Spirit asked me to give my all. I thought, “All I have is change.” But once again I heard the Lord ask me to give it all. So when the offering basket came by I put all of my change into it.

Somehow we made it through that week but still nothing came in to help us financially. The next Sunday was an unusually large crowd because our church had just hosted a large conference and many of the attendees had remained onsite to join in our Sunday service. After worship, one of the leaders stood up and said that when he woke up that morning the Lord showed him a couple that had given sacrificially of their lives to move to their nation and lead the house of prayer. He then called us forward. We were taken quite by surprise and went forward. He then placed two chairs in front of the stage and said, “I saw the Lord pouring change over them! Come and pour out the change that you have over them!” He called it a “Loonie/Toonie” offering which was what I had given the week before.

People began to come forward pouring out their coins into our laps. Then they began to give bills and checks (or cheques if you’re Canadian!). We were literally showered in change and provision. When it was done over $7000 was poured over us!!

This memory has been brought back to my mind over and over again for the past month. Whenever it comes I hear the words, “Change for Change!” My sense is that God is about to change the condition of many in “dire straits circumstances” as you give your all. I have found that often in the times where everything stands against us in the natural that we are on the verge of a supernatural intervention and breakthrough. The end is often the signal of a new beginning.

Change is coming! I see it raining gold coins from heaven but as it comes upon you it announces change! It may be a change of circumstances or a change of location, assignments, jobs/positions, etc.—but change is coming!

I see this happening not only for individuals and families but for cities, regions and nations. There is an offering that the Lord is asking His people for in all of these spheres. Whatever the offering He asks for will become the “trip wire” to release the supernatural change that needs to occur. The body of Christ is being invited into participate in an offering that will open up the winds of change!

This is the hour of transition and change for many of you! Do not hold back but give your all. Give an offering of praise, of thanksgiving and of sacrifice that is pleasing to the Lord. Be the trip wire for change!

Today is the day— angels with bags of change are posted and waiting to see who to pour out the “change” upon and the places where the “change” is to break forth! This is a heavenly currency that will manifest as a natural change upon those who enter in and over regions/nations that enter in.

Raise a HALLELUJAH! Change is about to come down!

It’s Your Full Circle Time!

by Kathi Pelton

Since 2019 began I have begun to take notice of what I would term as “full circle moments.” From prophetic words over the body of Christ to personal promises from decades ago suddenly coming upon us. It is as if 2019 is taking loose threads and weaving them into the fabric of our stories so that we enter 2020 with a completed garment.

For me personally; much of this has come about in very unexpected ways. It has reaffirmed my confidence and belief in how God orders and establishes our steps in the midst of “my plans.” Suddenly the trajectory of life has shifted and the direction has aligned with promises of old…even long forgotten promises.

My dear friend, Daneen Bottler, wrote a prophetic word on June 14th about being “shot out” like an arrow. She describes the pressure of being pulled back in the bow and then the speed and momentum of being shot out. I believe that this is such an accurate description of what is happening to many at this time. 2019 has been a year where the Lord has taken arrows from His quiver and placed them in His bow. As Daneen says in her prophetic article; there has been a strong pressure as they were pulled back but then suddenly they will be launched.

This full circle time could also be described as a “for such a time as this” moment. Many years of preparation are now coming to completion for a new time of living in the assignment. The past decade has been a time of deep refinement and preparation.

Recently I heard someone prophesy about an eleven year preparation period and as I heard these words I realized that the past eleven years have significantly been marked by a time of great preparation, refinement, purification and redemption in my life. I believe that this prophetic voice nailed a time cycle of eleven years that we have finished and another one that we’ve entered into. I have been meditation for an entire year on Hebrews 11:11 which says,

“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed; and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:11‬ ‭

She judged Him faithful who had promised! She had her full circle moment; though her faith wavered, she even laughed at the absurdity of the promised, etc. Still, she had “judged Him faithful who had promised!” This is a full circle and fulfillment time for many promises that you judged Him faithful to fulfill; even if your faith wavered and you could not see a way for the promise to come to pass.

I believe that in this moment we are all to declare and judge Him once again as “faithful.” This is a kairos moment to speak over your life, the life of your children and over your promises the words, “You are faithful!” We are to declare them loudly over the body of Christ and over our nations. We are to reaffirm that we “judge Him as faithful!”

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6

A long time and season of lingering in the “waiting room of promise” is coming to a close as we finish 2019 and enter into 2020. Though many have felt that what began as a beautiful promise many years ago became an extended time of being place in a quiver; even hidden away. But suddenly you will be taken ahold of, place in His bow and shot into the fulfillment of the promise. The seed will bring forth the promise fulfilled though some of you, like Sarah, even feel too old! Your names are being called and the “waiting room” season will come to an end.

The full circle of a promise given and that promise fulfilled is coming upon us. Though it has tarried for a long time, we are now in a “for such a time as this” moment.

“…And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

Declare with me, “He who promised is faithful to fulfill!” Amen
