The “Yes” That Fills The Room

by Kathi Pelton

Sometimes your “Yes” to Jesus comes with great excitement and joy but when your “Yes” comes with the sober awareness of sacrifice and cost; then it must be accompanied by the awareness and posture that cries out, “You are worthy of it all!”

These times remind me of Mary, a teenager being visited by the angel of the Lord who announced that the Holy Spirit would cause her to conceive a child, the Messiah. She had to be keenly aware of at least some of the cost; reputation, misunderstanding, accusations and so much more. Yet, in that moment of “being chosen” her response was this,

“And Mary said, “Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.” LUKE‬ ‭1:38‬

“Be it unto me according to your word.” Those words have become the deepest cry of my life. I would pray them in the days of my youth with little understanding of the weight that they carried. Though I’d never change that innocent response of the “teenaged me”; today when I pray it I understand the weight of taking up my cross and following Him.

The beauty has far outweighed the cost and we choose not to count the cost but rather to count it all joy! He is so worth it all and making His worth known throughout the earth is what we live for. To see Jesus receive His full inheritance is our greatest joy. He gave His all so how can we give any less; even in the moments that our “yes” has the fragrance of sacrifice upon it?

I believe every “yes” is a pleasing offering to Him but the “yes” that is accompanied by tears and an awareness of truly having to “let go of your will to receive His” is especially beautiful to Him.

If you are in a “Yes” moment…either for the first time or you’ve lost count because you live a “yes lifestyle” then remember that the only regret we’d ever have at the end of our lives would be the times we held anything back from Him. Our “all” is the only offering that is fitting the God who gave His all.

When He visits you, to choose you, respond with the only words that are fitting, “Be it unto me according to your word.” If tears and sacrifice accompany your response then know that your words are like the costly perfume in the alabaster jar poured over His feet once again. The fragrance of your yes fills the room!

We say yes…

Watch As The Chaos Sent Against You Suddenly Becomes A Wave Of Destiny

by Kathi Pelton

I was taken into a vision this morning where I saw a swirl of fear, chaos and distraction sent against many of God’s people. This demonic assignment was causing people to feel disoriented and disconnected. It came so fast and furious that it caught them off guard.

I’m from Northern California where the coastline is known for what are called, “sneaker waves”. These are very large and powerful waves that suddenly and unexpectedly come upon the shoreline. These sneaker waves a known for pulling a swimmer or a person walking on the shore out into the turbulent sea.

This is an appropriate description of what this assignment looks like. It is as if you were swimming in the refreshing glory of God or walking with Him upon shores of grace and suddenly you are caught by a sneaker wave and are pulled out into the chaos and turbulence of the sea.

In this vision I saw those who were caught in the chaos of this sneaker wave struggling to reorient themselves. I saw their arms flailing like a person who was drowning. As I saw this I saw the Lord with them and heard Him speak these words,

“Stop fighting, stop flailing and let Me rescue you. Trust Me and watch what I will do.”

When someone is drowning, the worst thing that they can do when help arrives is to fight and flail in fear. As they rest and relax into full dependency upon the one who has come to save them the rescue is far easier and much less traumatic.

The Lord is with you in the sea of chaos that has caught you by surprise. Relax and rest in His arms because He is right there with you. The fear has been blinding you from seeing Him but know this; He is there to rescue and save you.

The vision continued and I saw these people as they began to recognize the Lord’s presence with them. They began to relax into the peace that comes with absolute dependency upon His saving power. As they ceased striving and flailing, the sea of chaos that they had been drowning in suddenly became a wave that lifted them up carried them to the shore. Yet it was not the shore that they began on but it was a shore of destiny. A wave of destiny brought them to a shore of destiny.

So often God will use what the enemy has sent against us as an opportunity to get us further and faster to the place He has for us then had the attack not come. This is happening for many right now. We know from scripture that when the enemy comes…like a flood the Lord raises up a standard against him. It is the Lord that floods the atmosphere with His ways and will.

Years ago the Lord told me to be aware that the demons feed on fear and chaos. It is like a feeding frenzy for demons when the atmosphere is charged with the fear that produces chaos. Then He showed me that when there is peace and trust in Him it releases an atmosphere that is complete confusion to the enemy. He and his army fall into absolute chaos and confusion…and they must flee! Peace and trust attract the hosts of heaven!

If you have been caught by a spiritual “sneaker wave”that has pulled you into its grip, threatening to pull you under and drown you, then now is the time to close your eyes and see with the eyes of your spirit. God is with you to rescue and save you. Enter into peace and trust. Watch the chaos suddenly become a wave that you were destined to ride to the shore of destiny where that which you’ve longed and waited for is suddenly before you.

“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7

An Answer To Your “Why God?”

by Kathi Pelton

By nature the human race desires answers to our questions from a young age. Around two years old a toddler will discover the word “why” and it will become one of their most frequently used words. The discovery of answers is how we learn and how we learn to navigate this world.

As we grow in maturity and develop our personal relationship with God we must learn to trust Him without always demanding an answer to the many “whys” that surround our journeys as we walk with Him. We know that He is good and that His plans are to bless us so we follow Him into unknown paths by faith believing that He will order our steps.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭

Our family has followed His voice by moving to other cities, states and even other countries while not understanding the many questions that flooded our minds in the process. After thirty (Yes…THIRTY) moves to different homes in thirty-five years of marriage we could just stop unpacking and say, “Why bother?” But we always decide to bloom where we are planted; even if it’s for a short time.

You could spend sleepless nights trying to figure out the answers to so many of life’s “Why?” moments but in our journey we have learned that when the answers are hidden that God has a reason for that as well. Your journey may not be a move to a new home or city but you may be in the midst of a change or transition that causes you to have more questions than answers. You can ask Him why but if He doesn’t answer then know that he has a reason for His silence. You can trust Him in the unknown; knowing that He is holding you and leading you with plans to prosper and not harm you.

When I look back upon my many years of this “walk of faith” that my life has been on, I can truly say that I am grateful that He’s left many questions unanswered. If I had known more then I did at the time I might have feared that which I did not yet have grace to walk through. Or, I may have tried to orchestrate things to cause that answer to manifest in a wrong timing or way that wasn’t His way.

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Proverbs 16:9,

“A man’s mind plans his way [as he journeys through life], But the LORD directs his steps and establishes them.”

I’ve told this story before but it’s worth repeating. One day I was praying for my son-in-law, Luke, while he was facing a big transition and decision. As I prayed for him I heard the Spirit say to me,

“Tell Luke that he cannot miss My will.”

Honestly I thought that I heard wrong because he has a free will and could go the wrong direction so I asked the Holy Spirit how this could be true. His answer amazed me. He said,

“If a man’s steps are committed to Me then even if he makes plans that are not right I will redirect them and establish them according to My will.”

Wow, what comforting words that brought great peace! These words have been proven to be true in my life and it has been true in the lives of my children. Worry flees when I believe those words. I can’t miss because my steps are committed to Him! Even if my steps begin to get off track He will redirect them and establish them according to His will.

There is a song called “Thy Will” by Hillary Scott. It is a prayer of surrender yields to the One who holds every answer in His hands. Here are some lyrics that can be your prayer when facing unanswered “why’s”,

I know you see me- I know you hear me, Lord- Your plans are for me- Goodness you have in store

I know you hear me- I know you see me, Lord- Your plans are for me- Goodness you have in store

So…

Thy will be done- Thy will be done- Thy will be done

Like a child on my knees- All that comes to me is- Thy will be done

Thy will be done- Thy will be done

I know you see me- I know you hear me, Lord”

(Writer(s): Hillary Scott, Emily Weisband and Bernie Herms)

Like a child we can trust our Father, even when we don’t understand. You may have many things that you’re facing right now that you don’t have answers for but you only need to understand one thing...HE IS GOOD and His plans for you are good!

This is your reality. He is good and in the midst of your “whys” you will see His goodness come forth. You will be the recipient of His goodness and a witness of His faithfulness.

Trust Him!

May the Force of His Faithfulness Go Forth

by Kathi Pelton

There is a thief that is always seeking a way into your home in order to rob you and your family of peace, blessings, unity and prosperity. The devil prowls, looking for an entrance point that he can go in through. It seems as though he and his cohorts are more active than usual and the Lord told me that His people need to “establish their spiritual home security system”.

Then I saw in my spirit what looked like a red laser beam of light around a home that spelled out these words,

“… His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark…” Psalm 91:4

What is a “bulwark”? It is a defensive wall of protection.

Today is the day to install His bulwark around your life…declare His faithfulness around your life, your home and your loved ones. Remove every breach of doubt and unbelief and replace it with shouts that declare, “He is faithful!”

The red laser beam represents the blood of Jesus that has created a “blood line” of protection around your life and your home. The blood of Jesus will always declare His faithfulness! I see this “security system” installed by faith around businesses, ministries, churches, schools and even government buildings. The establishment of faith in His faithfulness will raise up a shield and wall of protection around these places that the thief has breached.

God is fortifying all that pertains to you and all of the blessings being sent upon you. As you declare His faithfulness, invite the angels to come and restore your blessings (all that was previously stolen) and to now be stationed round about your life, family and home.

“The Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3

I am declaring over you that the unstoppable force of His faithfulness that was sealed by His blood will go forth on your behalf to guard you and all that pertains to you from everything that the enemy has sent against you!

His force is with you…happy May the Fourth!

Ask and You Shall Receive

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.Matthew 7:7

We are hearing reports from believers all over the world that are suddenly receiving answers to prayers they’ve prayed and are suddenly seeing doors open that they have been knocking on.

There is an acceleration in the spirit that is moving lives forward with great momentum. Though the wait has been long, the spiritual muscles of faith and prayers have been built up! It is as if the body of Christ has been like an runner preparing for the the biggest race of their lives. The training had been long and it has been brutal but it’s also been effective. The gun signaling the beginning of the race has gone off and the race has begun.

If you are still waiting then don’t stop asking and don’t stop knocking! I declare the following words over you today…

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

He will do it and He is faithful. The dawn is breaking to announce the new day!

On a Personal Note:

As our faithful readers know; many doors have been opening for our family. Not only Jeffrey and I but our grown children as well.

On May 29th through June 4th I will be traveling to Washington DC with our daughter and son-in-law to meet with a national team and ministry that is shifting the spiritual climate of our nation. It is called, “Awaken the Dawn” Please pray for us as we seek wisdom for decisions needing to be made in this new day.

We booked our tickets and lodging in Washington DC today. We are asking and knocking on that door of faith to release the full amount needed financially for this trip. It will cost us over $2,500.00 for this trip alone (we have numerous trips throughout the summer months).

If you would like to help fund this trip, please go to our ministry website homepage and click the donate button: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

We thank you and pray that as you sow into our answered prayers and acceleration that it will release the answers and acceleration you’ve been waiting for. May you move into all that God has prepared for you in the dawning of the new day.

Spring Forward! Our Spring Update, Open Doors and News

A couple times a year we like to keep our ministry friends and partners updated regarding what we are hearing and what the Lord is asking us to do.

2019 has moved the body of Christ from a generation that lived in the wilderness; eating manna, to a generation that will be bold and courageous; crossing into the promise land and partaking in their first taste of the crops of Canaan (Joshua 5). God has rolled away the shame of captivity and reproach is circumcising our hearts. Now we will go and possess the land of our inheritance.

This has surely been a “crossover” time for Inscribe Ministries. We have now opened our publishing company, Inscribe Press. It will provide both new and seasoned authors with gifted editors, formatting excellence and talented graphic artists that will bring excellence to every aspect of their book. If you know a writer looking for a publisher with excellence and integrity please contact us at: admin@inscribepress.com

Kathi’s newest book is in the final stages of editing and will be available for pre-sale in May. It is the second book in her “30 Days to Breakthrough” series that is subtitled, “Becoming Bold and Courageous”. Nate Johnston graced this book by writing the forward for it. This is a timely book because to possess the land takes a people who are bold and courageous.

In the past few months God has opened new doors for us to work with prophets, apostles, evangelists, teachers and pastors to see our nation healed. As we are walking together in humility and love, He is revealing blueprints and strategies for the days ahead. We are seeing the old and new, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters, converging and emerging as one family.

We are witnessing the crest of a move of God building that will sweep across our land. Three generations (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) will walk as one. 2020 will prove to be a time that His people clearly see this move emerge; we must allow the Lord to complete the circumcision of our hearts that is preparing a people that will steward this move with cleans hands and pure hearts.

We ask that you would prayerfully consider partnering with us in both prayer and finances as we continue to obey His voice and follow His steps. The Lord told us that He will raise up partners and investors who will stand with us in the days ahead to help fund travel, ministry and personal expenses to see His Kingdom established in our nation and the nations of the world.

His promise to us is that those who pray and sow as we go will receive the same reward. If you hear the Lord asking you to partner with us, please contact us at: admin@inscribeministries.com

Lastly, God has released upon us a time of ministry that involves extensive travel. We have upcoming trips (beginning in May) that need to be fully funded. They include Washington DC, Boston, Florida and Ontario, Canada. We are located on the West Coast so all of these trips require cross-country flights. You can invest into these trips on our website at: www.inscribeministries.com

Thank you for your faithful prayers, support and for all the the love and encouragement that you continually show us.

With Deep Love and Gratitude~Jeffrey & Kathi Pelton

He Will Do It Again! Let Hope Arise!

by Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me His heart for many of you who are in the grip of impossible situations that seek to steal your faith and rob you of hope. I experienced His heart and it is filled with love and compassion for you. I then began to hear the words to the song, “Do It Again” that say,

“I’ve seen You move, come move the mountains

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again

You made a way, where there was no way

And I believe, I’ll see You do it again”

Heaven was singing words of faith over those whose faith is even now being tested. It was like a choir of those who had gone before us reminding God’s people of the miracles He has done and the mountains that He has moved. They were declaring over you, “He will do it again!”

Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forevermore! His promises never fail and His faithfulness is sure! There is an invitation into the song of faith that declares, “He will do it again!” Though your emotions may be experiencing fear and pain, let your spirit arise with the unfailing hope that does not disappoint! The worship that is released in the midst of the impossibilities and pain change the atmospheres and bring honor to God in a mighty way.

Faith is not an emotion, it is a conviction and a choice. Circumstances and emotions will try to pull you to a place that usurps truth and silences the sounds of praise but faith scales that mountain and stands on top of it to declare His faithfulness! It cries out with the sound of the redeemed and says, “He will do it again!”

Let your mountain cause your faith and your hope to arise with a sound that brings honor and glory to the One that is worthy of it all. Let your impossible circumstances cause your faith to be strengthened and your soul to be tamed by the declaration of hope!

Do not hold back! Let faith arise, let hope arise and let the sound of worship surround the mountain that stands before you. Train your soul to respond to truth rather than fear. Remember, the testing of your faith produces Christ in you.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1:2-4

Lacking nothing! Enter into the fullness of the One who lacks nothing and let Him move in you and for you! His faithfulness has gone before you and surrounds you even now!

It’s A Good Friday To Have A Passover!

by Kathi Pelton

For only the second time this century, Good Friday and the first night of Passover will coincide. While Christians around the world will be remembering the “Lamb that was slain” to set us free from the captivity of slavery to sin, the Jews will be gathering around that table to remember the blood of the lamb that was put upon the doorposts and their freedom from the captivity of Egyptian slavery.

For months the word, “convergence” has been coming out of my mouth as I witness divine convergences emerging everywhere. Yet, the greatest convergence ever known to mankind is that which converged the hopeless depravity of man (and sin) with the perfect hope of the shed blood of Jesus that cleanses our sin. His blood has become our freedom from captivity and slavery!

When we read about the terrible conditions that the Jewish people endured, enslaved in Egypt for 400 years, it is almost unthinkable. From heavy labor in despicable conditions, to the killing of their first born sons, they had all but lost hope.

Sin is the same kind of slavery! It causes men and women to take on such a heavy load (yoke) and brings death to every good thing. Sin causes even the most wealthy to live in vile conditions from which no money can set them free.

Good Friday is the day we remember the price that was paid, not in money, but in blood and in love, to set us free. It cost Him everything and cost us nothing but our “Yes!” We will declare, “I believe and I receive the blood that sets me free.”

Let us pray for the Jewish people around the world, that today as they sit down for their Passover meal that their eyes would be opened to see the true Passover Lamb, Jesus Christ. As these two days that represent freedom from captivity converge, let us declare over all who are still in slavery to sin and the captivity of the world: FREEDOM!

Roar out the good news! Don’t hold back but allow the sound of freedom and the sound of salvation become the sound of chains falling to the floor. Roar it over your family, roar it over your city, roar it over your nation, and roar it over all of creation!

“Jesus answered them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.’” John‬ ‭8:34-36‬ ‭

The blood that was shed by our Messiah became the ink that signed our adoption papers. We are no longer slaves but now we are sons. Our “yes” and His blood become the grace that puts us in family and restores to us the full inheritance of a son, and to the Son His full inheritance in us.

This is a very Good Friday! Our Passover Lamb has redeemed us and sets us free from the slavery of sin. May His blood be placed upon the “doorpost” of every person that has yet to come to the knowledge of the cross. Pray and decree the blood of the Lamb over all that you are carrying.

The blood of Jesus speaks a better word over their life and over your life!

“You have come to Jesus, the one who mediates the new covenant between God and people, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks of forgiveness instead of crying out for vengeance like the blood of Abel.” Hebrews 12:24

Today there is a better word being spoken over your life and over your loved ones. Where you have cried out for vengeance begin to cry out for the blood that speaks forgiveness and releases the new covenant. There is power in the blood!

New England Trip Update

First, I want to tell all of my readers and followers who rose up and gave financially to help fund this trip…THANK YOU! All that has happened and that has begun is counted as your reward as well. We are declaring abundant multiplication upon you and your household.

We are still in Boston and will fly back to the West Coast Thursday afternoon. The trip has been one that has been marked by heart connections. From the divine appointment that healed a mother’s heart on the plane to the touching the heart of our nation.

Though I cannot yet share all of the details from our time (because they are still unfolding), I want you to know that God is gathering His family throughout the nations and yes, even in our beautiful nation. We are seeing the unfolding of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21,

“…that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they may also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

This week I saw many strong leaders and ministries come to understand that we are not separated by giftings or callings but that as we come together as one, we form the fullness of His heart and His body.

There is a great humility coming upon those who will lay down their crowns (their personal ministries, their titles, their rights and their names) for the sake of being one. We are one family and one body made up of different parts but as we are rightly joined we function as we were created to be…as one bride.

Every time we sat down with an individual or a group or leaders of a ministry we found that we share the same heart. We realized in a greater measure that what we are carrying may all be the same and as the puzzle pieces of our hearts and lives are joined we reveal Jesus and we become a light that the world will be drawn to.

As the details become more defined I will share more. What I did want to share is that God began a convergence of hearts. Many ministries as well as fathers, mothers, sons and daughters now are connecting as one family. We joined in the place where our nation’s foundations began and witnessed new foundations of God’s original intent for His people…oneness with Him and one another.

Continue to pray that as we walk upon the historic foundations of our land today. Pray that we will release the love of God and the unity of the Spirit into the atmosphere and into the people that we meet.

Thank you once again for your prayers and financial support. If you desire to sow into this trip to cover the final cost or desire to help us with the our next trips (a tour through California, British Columbia, Boston, Ontario and Washington D.C.) you can donate at: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

The Weight of His Kabod Glory Will Come Upon You!

by Kathi Pelton

This morning I was listening to Nate Johnston’s FB Live where he talks about getting rid of yokes and receiving new mantles. As he spoke I heard the Spirit of the Lord say,

“I am exchanging the heavy yoke upon My people’s shoulders for the mantle that carries the ‘weight of My glory’.”

If you are laboring with a heavy yoke and burden…now is the time to cast it off and ask for the mantle that fits you, was made for you and will rest the “weight of His glory” upon your life!

The enemy is trying to weigh many down with burdens that want to move them from the place of intimacy to a place of control or from a posture of grace to the works of the flesh. He wants you to take matters into your own hands so that you will stop seeking “first the Kingdom of God.” The enemy knows that as you seek first the Kingdom that all things will be added to you and that is a double blow to his demonic agenda.

God is saying that this is not the time to take a heavy yoke upon yourself but to take up the His light yoke and receive His mantle that will upgrade you and propel you forward with anointing and intimacy. I have talked to many people lately that have been experiencing unusual shoulder pain, neck pain and back pain. I believe that these are physical signs of assignments that have placed a heavy yoke upon God’s people to separate them from peace, grace and intimacy.

God is sending the “weight of His glory” upon those who will ask. There is a divine exchange offered that will take the heavy yoke off of your shoulders and cover you with the double portion mantle that will set you in place with anointing and the weight of His presence. This is the “Kabod” (glory) which means abundance, honor and glory!

I encourage you to watch Nate Johnston’s FB live from this morning where he will minister to you regarding this very subject. I’ve posted it on my page. Nate’s FB page can be found at: https://m.facebook.com/natejamesjohnston
