Fix Your Gaze and Step Into Freedom

by Kathi Pelton

Last night a group of seven of us went to a very oppressed area of downtown Portland to do a prayer-walk (we’ve been prayer walking this area for the past six months). Though we had a very effectual night with amazing breakthrough, what our eyes had to look upon could grieve even the hardest heart. There were so many lives snared in the net of demonic oppression and addiction. Yet, as we stood on a particularly dark corner one of our team members said that the song, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, was running through his mind the whole night but the word “turn” was changed to “fix.” We all stood in the midst of the darkness (even people screaming at us) and began to sing,

Fix your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace…

As we sang, prayed and declared we watched as the things of earth grew dim. We fixed our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and the darkness was dispelled in the midst of His light. From that point on we had miraculous breakthroughs that we had been praying for over many months.

I share this testimony with you because the change and freedom came when we “fixed our gaze upon Jesus” in the midst of darkness.

“I have asked one thing from the Lord; it is what I desire: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, gazing on the beauty of the Lord and seeking [Him] in His temple.” Psalm 27:4

As we fixed our gaze upon His beauty the darkness around us began to tremble. There were physical and natural happenings that we witnessed in response to the light and beauty being brought into the midst of darkness and depravity. We honestly stood in awe at what we witnessed last night because it was supernatural.

Though we shouldn’t have been surprised, honestly we were greatly shocked and surprised at the turn of events. I should know this truth well because in my personal life I strive to continually “fix my gaze” on Jesus and His beauty day and night. The sight of Him and “dwelling in His temple” has become my refuge and my fortress.

When trials or storms come, fixing my gaze upon Him becomes the place where my perspective is aligned with truth and victory. Fixing my eyes upon His beauty lifts me out of the circumstance that seek to “steal my gaze.” It lifts me from the captivity of fear into the freedom of the finished work of Christ.

If you are going through a storm and all you can see is the wind and waves, then now is the time to turn your eyes upon Jesus and fix your gaze upon His beauty. It will not only lift you above the storm but it will also calm the storm.

Often we empower storms or assignments sent against us when we fix our focus on them. The enemy seeks to steal our gaze and our light through darkness and fear. When this happens, we actually become a force that strengthens the storm rather than calms the storm. As you refocus your gaze upon Jesus it releases His power to calm the storm and moves you into freedom.

“For all creation, gazing eagerly as if with outstretched neck, is waiting and longing to see the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19

As we fixed our gaze on Jesus last night we saw creation respond. Creation was waiting for the sons and daughters of God to arrive on the scene in a place where darkness was given dominion. Though there is still much work to do, we found that as we fixed our gaze upon His beauty and released what we saw, the mountains trembled and demons began to flee. Light dispels darkness, beauty transforms depravity, love overcomes hate! This works in our personal lives as well as in our cities and nations.

If you need freedom from oppression and circumstances that have left you captive; turn your gaze! Refocus your attention and your eyes upon His beauty and watch as peace comes upon you and the storm is stilled. Your perspective will change but circumstances will shift as well.

Fix your gaze and watch freedom come!

Prophetic Dream For America

Kathi Pelton

Last night I arrived in Washington DC and as we drove by the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, lit up against the night sky, I could feel the longing of God for our nation begin to swell in my spirit. I went to bed last night with intercession for our nation stirring within me.

When I fell asleep I went into a significant, prophetic dream.

The Dream:

I was with the group of international prophets meeting together in our nation’s capital. We were seeking the Lord together for the United States. In the dream I asked the Lord what He wanted to say to us and as I asked I was suddenly taken to an aerial view of Washington DC. Then this aerial view was transposed onto a large silver coin. Then the Spirit of the Lord asked me, “What is your nation’s motto?” I answered, “In God We Trust.” As I spoke the words they appeared upon the silver coin. The Spirit then said, “This is what will save your nation.”

Then, in the dream, I was taken to see many in the body of Christ who were interceding for our nation, who were prophesying over our nation, who were standing with our nation or living in our nation. As I looked upon them they were under severe personal attacks. I asked the Lord why there was such an attack against His people at this time. He answered my saying, “Their ‘trust’ in Me is under attack. If the enemy can cause My people to lose their trust in Me then He can win the battle for your nation. The key to victory is found in the words, ‘In God We Trust.’”

In the dream I began to prophesy what I had just seen and as I did I began to repeat over our nation and over His people and over my life the words, “In God We Trust! In God I trust!” Then the Lord said something that shot through my spirit like a bolt of lightening. He said, “It only takes a remnant to win this battle for your nation! A remnant that will put their trust in Me!”

As He spoke these words; life and hope surged through me with such victorious power. The words, “It only takes a remnant.” repeated over and over in my spirit until it began to pour out of me with the Spirit of prophesy upon them.

Understanding the Dream:

There was more to the dream that I may share later but I will save that for another time. What I want you to understand from this dream is that the attack against you has been a direct attack against your trust in the Lord! It may have taken the form of health issues, financial lack, relational issues or even mental/emotional attacks but what the enemy is after is your trust in God!

You are a part of the remnant that will rise up and say, “In God I trust and in God we trust.” These words and this posture is the key to seeing this established in our nation. What appears to be a personal attack is in fact an attack against America and her key to victory. The inscription on our coins is the key to purchase back our nation for God.

Within the dream I was with international leaders that I recognized from Canada, Israel, Germany, Asia, Japan and many other nations. They were all standing with us in our nation’s capital because they knew that the time was now to stand with our nation. The victory in America was also a victory for their nations. They felt the weight of the Lord’s longing for them to join us and stand with the United States until we gained the victory. They brought their “trust” as a part of the remnant that would turn our nation back to God.

Conclusion:

No matter what you are facing or battling, know this: it is a battle for your trust! Rise up and put doubt under your feet! Put every word of accusation against the Lord and all circumstantial evidence that has been raised against Him under your feet and stomp it out with the words, “In God We Trust!”

Let these words rise over your life and rise over our nation with the incense of intercession and prophetic declaration! Let the remnant arise and put their trust in God alone. It only takes a remnant to arise and see a nation saved!

“Rise up, O God, and scatter your enemies. Let those who hate God run for their lives. Blow them away like smoke. Melt them like wax in a fire. Let the wicked perish in the presence of God. But let the godly rejoice. Let them be glad in God’s presence. Let them be filled with joy. Sing praises to God and to his name! Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds. His name is the Lord — rejoice in his presence!”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭68:1-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Has A Mountain Been Raised Before You? It’s Time To Take It Down!

by Kathi Pelton

Yesterday our worship set had two songs that the Lord used like weapons of warfare in our midst. The first song was Bethel Music’s “Raise A Hallelujah” and the second song was an Elevation Worship song called “Do It Again”.

As we sang, danced and declared the words to these songs the atmosphere as was electric with a faith-filled, overcoming authority that was “raising praise higher than the mountains raised against us!”

In the song, “Raise A Hallelujah” there is a section where the words, “Sing a little louder…” are repeated again and again as the voices build. As we sang those words louder and louder; raising our voices above the voices that shouted from the mountains of opposition, it was like watching the mountain crumble before our eyes. The shadows that the mountains had cast to darken the light of truth was removed and suddenly I found myself standing on top of the mountain “raising a Hallelujah!”

Unbeknownst to me, the next song would be “Do It Again.” This song is about how God will do once again what He has done in days past. One of the lines declares these words,

“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”

As we sang and declared these words corporately there was so much faith in the room. Then I heard the Lord say,

“Have everyone stand on top of the mountain of opposition that has been raised against them. Then have them raise their Hallelujahs higher and louder than all that is under their feet and watch as it crumbles.”

We did! We all used the mountains that stood before us to take us higher as we “Raised a Hallelujah” to the One who levels the mountains! We lifted Him higher and as we did He lifted us above what stood against us.

This morning I awoke with the Lord saying,

“Invite them all to join in!”

He is inviting you to put that mountain that has been raised up to oppose you under your feet and from that place to raise your Hallelujah! Declare that He will remove the mountain once again. Let your faith arise, let your song arise, let your voice be heard, let light break through…let your praise be raised higher than the mountain!

Don’t stop! Sing a little louder! Dance on it, shout from it and watch Him do it again!

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

• When everything seems against you… “I am for you.”

• When the odds are stacked against you… “I will tip the scales in your favor.”

• When you feel alone and without help… “I am with you to help you.”

• When you have no answers… “I will give you wisdom & miracles.”

• When you cannot find your way… “I will carry you and comfort you.”

• When you feel too weak to carry on… “I will be the strength that you need.”

• When you face the impossible… “Remember—I make all things possible!”

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans‬ ‭8:28-31‬ ‭

Your “But God…” Moment Is Upon You!

by Kathi Pelton

• When God speaks, bad reports become praise reports.

• When God moves, dark storms become still waters.

• When God blesses, a small offering is multiplied into abundant supply.

• When God touches, the blind man sees and the lame man dances.

• When God commands, mountains move and a way is made.

• When God delivers, demons flee and men are restored.

• When God loves, broken lives are forever changed!

Every day with God is a day of miracles! Whatever your need is today, there is a “But God…” opportunity before you. No matter how big or how small, how crucial or how trivial; He loves to speak, move, bless, deliver and love you.

Do not be discouraged by the challenges that are before you because they are about to become your “But God…” testimony. Get excited because if God is for you then who (or what) can stand against you?

“God, today we stand with great expectation to hear you speak, to see you move, to witness your touch, to watch you command, to experience your deliverance and to live within the power of your love!”

There is a “But God…” moment about to invade your story!

Abundant Rain, Super Bloom and Butterflies! Signs of a New Day!

by Kathi Pelton

Our family line has been in California for many generations but a few years ago the Lord asked us to leave the state and move to Oregon. We return for visits with our extended family often and this week was one of those visits. As we drove though the state the normally brown hills were now vibrant green; unlike we’d seen in many years. It was like a visual shout announcing, “The drought is over and abundant life has come and kissed our land.”

As we continued to drive we began to take notice of the amazing wildflowers (poppies, mustard, etc) in bloom throughout the vineyards and upon the rolling hills. Sunshine and rain clouds cast amazing light and shadows down on the land. I was looking at a physical manifestation upon the land that only happens when years of drought receive the downpour of an abundance of rain.

Then the Spirit said, “This is a picture in the natural of what My people will soon look like to all who see them.”

There has been a long spiritual drought for the body of Christ; no differently then the “Golden State” has experienced. But the abundance of rain has come and Spring is appearing upon the lives of His people.

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

This abundance of rain upon a land that has experienced years of drought has caused what is being called a “super-bloom” in California, with hundreds of thousands of orange poppies carpeting the hills and meadows. The abundance of rain has caused plants to thrive, giving the “painted lady” caterpillars plenty of food to fuel their transformation (metamorphosis) into millions of orange and black butterflies taking flight. One butterfly enthusiast in California said that these butterflies seem very purposeful and undistracted in their migration flight pattern. They are quite directional! She was quoted saying,

“They’re in a hurry, like the rabbit in ‘Alice in Wonderland,’” she said. “They have a very important date.”

This is such a picture of the sense that I am getting from many prophetic voices right now. There is clarity in direction and it is like we are hurrying toward a very important time and destination.

California is a natural sign of a spiritual change of conditions and seasons. Not only for the state itself but for the state of the body of Christ. We have gone through a long metamorphosis from a place of crawling to a state of taking flight. Like the butterflies emerging from the fields of orange poppies, so is the church emerging from a time of drought and crawling into a time of flight and thriving. They are be drawn to the time of harvest where the super bloom of souls, healings, miracles and a great outpouring will occur.

It is interesting to note that the orange poppies (which are California’s state flower) and orange butterflies are being highlighted in this natural scene. Orange is the color of fire and there so many prophetic voices talking about the fire of God coming upon the church. Amber is the color that represents the Glory of God.

We also know that California has been experiencing a few years of extreme fires that brought so much destruction but now the land is displaying the glory of God after the purifying fires. Once again we see this state revealing a prophetic picture of the Church which has gone through extreme refining and now is beginning to see a display of the Glory of God resting upon it.

What a beautiful and exciting time we are entering into. One of my friends and I keep saying that we feel like Alice (from Alice in Wonderland); we have gone down the rabbit hole and don’t want to go back! It is becoming a “wonder-land” where awe and wonder will be seen by all. His glory will clothe the church with splendor and beauty and His fire will bring forth the manifestation of signs and wonders by the millions!

Your Vats Will Overflow!

Today the Spirit spoke to me out of Proverbs 3:9-10,

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” Proverbs‬ ‭3:9-10‬ ‭

There is a divine reset coming for many of you in the area of finance. I sensed the Lord desiring a “first fruits” offering to finish the 2018 year with honoring Him with an extravagant financial gift. The promise attached to it comes from the verse above from the Book of Proverbs. Honor the Lord with your wealth! This is an “honorarium to the Lord for His faithfulness and faithful promises.

2019 will be a year of new wine poured into new wine skins. There has been an emptying of the things of old that could not hold what the Lord is bringing forth in the days ahead. He has prepared us to walk honorably with wealth and emptied us of the old in order to fill us with the overflow of new wine. This will be a physical and spiritual overflow.

Will you prepare your first fruits offering to seal 2018 and to secure 2019? This will close the past year with thanksgiving and open the door of the new year with the honor that is attached to the promise in Proverbs 3:9-10.

Lastly, the Lord spoke to me from Ezekiel 12:23 recently saying that this will be the new proverb or new testimony in 2019 and beyond (I believe it shifted on 12/23/2018). I will start in verse 22 in order to give context,

“Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: ‘The days go by and every vision comes to nothing’? Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.’ Say to them, ‘The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.” Ezekiel‬ ‭12:22-23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Even this week we are seeing prophesies coming to pass that are decades old! This is merely the beginning of the days that will hear the testimonies of visions and prophesies fulfilled. It will be a time of Biblical and Personal prophesies coming to pass.

Proverbs 3:9-10 is a promise and prophesy that those who honor the Lord with their wealth will see come to pass!

Lift Up Your Impossible!

Kathi Pelton

I awoke early this morning to a vision of many of God’s people picking up the impossible circumstances in their natural lives and “by faith” carrying these things to a heavenly place where the supernatural not only makes it possible but fulfills that possibility.

It was as if these people suddenly woke up out of a circumstantial “stupor” that was creating fear, doubt and hopeless despair and realized that they are not citizens of this world but citizens of a Kingdom that makes a way where there is no way and where faith ushers them into the realm where all things work together for good for those who love God.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

Faith is the doorway to enter into God’s Kingdom where there are no limits, no impossibilities and no lack. We can bring every impossibility into that place that is higher than the natural (circumstantial) realm and watch God do what only He can do…make a way!

Today, pick up the very things that are keeping you “earthbound” and by faith bring them to the place where everything that is bound gets loosed! This is where the miraculous will begin to transform your impossible into a testimony that declares His faithfulness.

Tell your soul to put it’s hope in God! Say to your heart, “Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 42:11

Finish 2018 in faith not fear! God is able and He is willing to rescue and save you from every impossible circumstance. Put your hope in God and begin to praise Him. Let faith arise and lift you above what has been disturbing you.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20

God Is Shaking Off Your Despair…It’s Time To Rejoice!

Kathi Pelton

Yesterday my dear friend, Deborah Trujillo, did a fantastic job bringing the word of the Lord to our church here in Portland, Oregon. Her theme was “Faithfulness & Thanksgiving”. During her message she read the well-known verse from Philippians 4:6,

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

As she read this verse I went into a vision where I saw men and women arising from a sunken state of deep despair and anxiety. The spirit of truth suddenly came upon them causing them to realize that the despair and anxiety was a spirit sent against them that they had in their vulnerable state come into agreement with; causing them to lose hope. As they stood up, the power of the Lord came upon them and they began to shake and shake almost violently. The shaking was breaking the dark shroud that had cloaked them and brought despair upon them. It was crumbling like a rock wall, leaving the stones at their feet. Then suddenly they began to break into praise and thanksgiving to God. As the words of thanksgiving came forth their shaking turned into dancing; a completely abandoned dance before the Lord.

Then I saw the stones that were now crumbled at their feet and each one represented a request or need that they had carried. But rather than carrying their requests before the Lord with thanksgiving, anxiety had taken the place of prayers, petitions intermingled with thanksgiving causing each need to be cemented together by anxiety. This caused their needs to wall them in and shroud their lives with needs, lack and anxiety…which lead them to despair and hopelessness.

If this is you, I right now prophesy over you that the Spirit of the Lord is coming upon you and you will arise in His power and shake off the fortified wall of despair and hopelessness! His power will crumble the anxiety that caused your requests to become a fortress of never-ending needs and darkness. You will arise and shake off the darkness and despair. You will begin to shout out praise and thanksgiving which will cause you to dance with abandonment and rejoicing. You will dance upon the stones (needs) that lay at your feet. As Jesus is exalted higher than the needs before you they will begin to turn into answers and desires fulfilled. You will bring your needs before the Lord with prayers and petitions that are from a heart of thanksgiving. You will enter into new doors, new gates and new beginnings as you enter in with thanksgiving in your heart.

“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” Psalm 100:4

The anxiety that has plagued your days and consumed your nights will be turned into a peace that surpasses your understanding. Philippians 4:6 goes from an instruction (of what to do with your needs and requests) to verse 7 where we see the result of following His instruction,

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

Thanksgiving will break every chain of anxiety and crumble the walls of despair! Today is the day to arise and with thanksgiving and make your requests known to Him; for He is faithful!!
