New Year’s Day 2019: Crossing into the Promised Land

Kathi Pelton

On the morning of January 1st, 2019, I awoke and looked at my phone to see the time. It was 4:44 a.m. When I saw this something quickened in my spirit and I knew I needed to pray and pay attention to what the Lord desired to say.

The number four Biblically represents a demarcation point in creation; the fourth day the sun, moon, and stars were created, separating day from night and providing light for both. There are also four separate seasons in a year providing a demarcation of changes throughout each year. The fourth commandment is to rest and honor the Sabbath, which is a demarcation in time each week where we go from active work to focused rest.

This new year (2019) is a demarcation year that signals a time and season shift or change. It is also a year that God will reveal great light in the day and great light in the night (darkness). His light comes from the place of His perfect love and perfect love cast out fear. Fear of darkness will be met by the light of His perfect love and that love will cast our fears that have gripped the hearts of so many.

Immediately upon waking on 1/1/2019 at 4:44 I went to my Bible and opened it. As I did the Spirit asked me to look down and read the page that I had opened to. These are the first words that I read in 2019,

“Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach (captivity/slavery) of Egypt from you.” So the place has been called Gilgal to this day. On the evening of the fourteenth day of the month, while camped at Gilgal on the plains of Jericho, the Israelites celebrated the Passover. The day after the Passover, that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land: unleavened bread and roasted grain. The manna stopped the day after they ate this food from the land; there was no longer any manna for the Israelites, but that year they ate the produce of Canaan.” Joshua‬ ‭5:9-12‬ ‭

In the Hebrew language, Gilgal means circle and stone. We see the “reproach of Egypt (captivity)” rolled away just as the stone was rolled away from the tomb of Jesus when He was resurrected. Light suddenly emerged out of darkness; both the darkness of captivity and the darkness of the tomb. Both events are “demarcation” moments that changed history by rolling away a stone.

Joshua 5:9-12 also speak of leaving a fort-year time of wilderness living, where the Israelites survived on daily manna for their provision rather than the fruits and harvest of the Promised Land. Suddenly manna was no longer needed and the Israelites enjoyed their first meal from the crops of Canaan.

This marked the end of the time of manna, stagnation, and wilderness survival; they were moving into the land of their inheritance. Though there were many enemies occupying their land, as they kept the Lord’s commands and instructions they would overthrow the enemies in order to possess and occupy their promise.

I truly believe that this is a picture of the time that we have now entered. We have crossed over and are having our hearts circumcised. The time of being idle has come to a close and the reproach of captivity is suddenly rolled away. We are getting our first tastes of the riches of Canaan.

The body of Christ is being asked to walk forward as one people; one family that follows all of the Lord’s commands and instructions. In doing this we will conquer enemies, tear down strongholds, and occupy lands of long-awaited promises.

The rewards and victories ahead are remarkable and yet we must be sober to the truth that the penalty for not following His ways and instructions will be costly. We must walk as one army, as one family, without jostling for position or moving according to the flesh. This is why it is imperative to allow the circumcision of our hearts to take place as we enter this new season. The old must pass away and we must all ascend the mountain of the Lord together to meet God face-to-face. There, we will receive wisdom and instructions of how to proceed while coming daily into intimacy and nurturing His presence.

“Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” So the LORD said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”” Exodus‬ ‭33:15-17‬ ‭

As we meet with God and follow His instructions, our enemies will be struck with fear as they see the miracles and victories that the Lord will do through His people.

I conclude with a number of Scripture verses that the Lord has highlighted to me for this time and season. I encourage you to read them, pray into them, and carry them with you in your heart and mind.

“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 ‭

• “I am the LORD your God: Walk in My statutes, keep My judgments, and do them;” Ezekiel‬ ‭20:19‬ ‭

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18

“For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do—to love the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him— then the LORD will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand against you; the LORD your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to you.” Deuteronomy‬ ‭11:22-25‬ ‭

This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John‬ ‭1:5-9‬

Take time to meditate on these verses. His word is the lamp that lights the way of our paths ahead. Let us hold fast to His written and spoken words as we move forward to possess the land.

Move This Mountain

A week ago the Lord asked us to begin a crowdfunding campaign to support our oldest son, Corey and his family as they step out in faith to follow what the Lord is asking of them in this season.

On November 30th, Corey, his wife Brittany and their three small boys will move from New York to Oregon (Portland) in order to bring Corey’s media gift to serve the body of Christ. He is leaving a paid position in New York in order to serve in absolute faith.

As people began giving to see them get settled in Oregon we felt to pray for each of the donors to see the obstacles and mountains in their own lives removed as they sowed in to see out son’s family have a level path to cross over on.

We would like to invite you into this as well. The words, “Give and it shall be given to you…” ring true as we are watching mountains coming down for many through generous giving.

If you would like to sow into this campaign and their mountain being removed, go to:

We will pray for you and decree over each one that gives. It takes a family!

Thank you~~

God is About to Restore Marriages! A Revival of Renewed Love Will Come Forth

Kathi Pelton

The Lord showed me a vision of couples that had been married for many years suddenly awakened to the “first love” that they had for one another. At first, I saw a black and white scene of a couple who were merely functioning in life together but no longer sharing the deep connection they once knew.

Then I saw angels sent to these couples—they were like cartoon “Cupid” angels that kids draw—and the angels were playfully shooting arrows of love at these couples. As this happened, the vision turned to vivid color and these couples remembered once again the wonderful sensation of love they shared in the beginning. Their hearts came alive with joy and excitement, and all the feelings they had shared in the beginning were restored.

I then saw that many second honeymoons will be planned because of this renewed love and affection. All the years of being responsible: focusing on raising children, on careers and caring for homes, and the hundreds of things that life demands from couples will suddenly come into a new perspective, and rather than tearing them apart it will knit them more closely together. They will carry the wonder of the love they shared in the beginning, along with the depth of wisdom that the years have taught them. Wonder and wisdom will be intermingled causing a double-portion blessing to rest upon their lives.

This double-portion blessing will suddenly give these couples new energy and new hopes, dreams, and joy. It will pour over into their relationships with Jesus, where together they will come into a renewed, first love experience with Him. Oneness of heart will be released in the body of Christ due to the love that is rekindled in these marriages.

I hear the words again and again, “He makes all things new! He makes all things new! He makes all things new!”

This mending of marriages will do more for the Kingdom than we can imagine. It will release a unity of hearts and a healing upon families. A baptism of joy will come upon His people because hearts will be awakened and “love will be in the air.” It will pour out wherever these couples go and people will be drawn to the love that they share. People will be saved because of their longing to have what these couples share together.

The world is full of married couples that are desperately longing to be reconnected and restored. The couples that experience this renewed love will become ministers of reconciliation wherever they go. They will become household and family evangelists; praying for and laying hands on couples that need what they have. They will carry an anointing for reconciliation and renewal.

Get ready for a revival of love that hits marriages!

“Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” Proverbs 13:12

Don’t Stop! Victories Are Imminent

Kathi Pelton

I woke up this morning with these words singing in the background of my mind,

“Day and night, night and day let incense arise…”

It is my deepest cry that our God receives the incense of worship, prayer, our deepest affections, and fully surrendered lives every moment of every day. There is truly no better place to live than in the place of being a “burning one” who, through surrender, has become one with the One who gave His all.

As I heard these words upon waking what rose up in my spirit immediately were the words for His sons and daughters, “Don’t stop! Don’t give up!”

It was like a shout from the hosts of Heaven to His people on earth. The incense of your life is affecting the atmosphere. As you allow the scent of Christ to rise from your life, it releases an incense that brings heaven to earth and causes demons to flee. God in you and pouring forth from you shifts the atmosphere and releases the supernatural into the natural world around you.

He is worthy of it all! Let your praises arise today and do not hold back. Let no one and nothing stop you from releasing the incense of praise. Don’t stop! Don’t be stopped. This is the way that you move into alignment with heaven. Fill the earth with His glory.

The angels are even now taking down the enemies that have come against you. Our Warrior King has gone out to fight for His inheritance. Your position is to let your “incense arise”.

“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD’s victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!” 2 Chronicles 20:17

Be still and watch God bring forth victory after victory. Don’t stop, for your God is mighty in battle and He deserves the glory.

The Treasure Chest is Open

Kathi Pelton

Last week while talking with my four-year-old grandson about his upcoming birthday, he interrupted me to say,

“Gramma, I want a treasure chest filled with quarters for my birthday!”

It caught my attention because it was such an unusual request from a boy who always wants superhero toys. I have not been able to get it out of my mind since he asked, and whenever that happens I know that the Lord is desiring to show me something.

My family will often, unknowingly, leave me prophetic markers that lead me to the true treasure that that Spirit is desiring to open. This has been the case once again since the new year began.

The first marker came when my son-in-law kept seeing the number 33 everywhere he went (he’s not the type to look for these sort of things so I was sure it was God). I knew that it was Jeremiah 33:3,

“‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’”

It confirmed the word “mysteries revealed” that I kept hearing the Spirit speak. Again and again I’d hear words that have been being like the quarters in that treasure chest. Words like mysteries, wisdom, secrets, treasures, keys, blueprints, face to face, intimacy, and surrender. Every word has been part of the treasure revealed.

Next I became very aware of the numbers 222 (22, 222, 2222) everywhere I went. It was in the name of streets I was directed to go to, addresses, receipts, time on clocks, etc. I have always seen multiple twos as keys (Isaiah 22:22 “The Keys of David”). Then the Lord reminded me of Daniel 2:22 that says,

“He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭2:22‬ ‭

There it was again…secrets revealed!

I talked with a close friend about this “treasure chest full of quarters”. As we spoke we realized that the Lord was showing me that each quarter represents a “part” of the whole. We all see in part but together, as we get face to face with Him and face to face with one another, we will see the full treasure:

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” 1 Corinthians 13:12

There is such an open invitation to come face to face with God. In that place we are fully known and in the secret place mysteries are revealed; secrets are shared in the midst of intimacy. As the mysteries are gathered together we begin to see the full treasure the Holy Spirit is revealing.

There is a great treasure hunt going on right now and the clues are all around us, but the wisdom is found in the face-to-face secret place. Out of that place we will come together and release our “part” in order to see the whole. The heavenly blueprints are being released for cities and nations by the great Architect! His sons and daughters are being shown the mysteries (strategies, plans, details) that will unlock the steps to take.

This is a time to get face to face with God and then to gather face to face with one another to bring the different parts together to reveal the whole. It will become times where sons and daughters gather together in a secret garden to receive the counsel of the Lord. Unity, intimacy, and revelation will rest upon these times where His yielded ones gather to seek His face together. Treasure chests will be unlocked and opened to reveal the fullness of His wisdom and counsel.

Your part is important! Don’t underestimate the piece that you carry but offer it. Do not hold onto it for yourself. I believe this is not only about revelation but also about your gift, your talents, and even your finances. Your “quarter”—your part—helps fill the chest.

This is a year of multiplication and that will happen as we join together. In the natural family it takes a man and a woman to multiply (produce children). In the family of God it takes the sons and daughters coming together with the Bridegroom to bring multiplication. There is great anointing upon “face to face” times with our Beloved individually and corporately.

The treasure chest is open…bring your part until it is filled to overflowing!

Heaven Has Your Back!

Kathi Pelton

Today as I was backing up my phone into the “cloud” I immediately saw a vast company in Heaven watching over every detail of lives and heard the words,

“The great cloud of witnesses has your back!”

Hebrews 12:1 says,

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us…”

You can run the race without fear or trepidation. You are not alone and you have a vast company backing you up as you go forth. There is no detail overlooked, no desire forgotten, and no wisdom withheld. This great cloud of witnesses has gone before you and handed the baton off to those who are currently running the race on earth; they bear witness to the life and faith in which we run now. They cheer us on with great joy!

You have all of Heaven’s support, backing, and resources to do all that He has asked you to do. You also have been given great examples in those who have gone before, teaching us how to be free from the entanglements of sin and EVERYTHING that hinders us.

Do not be hindered by your human weakness but be strengthened by the encouragement of the Word: the stories of weak men and women who God used to accomplish miracles as they yielded to His truth and ways. Hebrews 11 is filled with stories of imperfect people who obeyed and believed and thus changed history.

You have a great backup in the cloud! Every important detail is stored there to get you where you need to be. The lives of those who have gone before us are blueprints of how to walk in victory.

Run! You have the full backing of Heaven!

Get Ready to Cross Over in Unity! Do Not Hold Back!

Kathi Pelton

I am hearing the words, “Finish strong in the faith that holds fast to the faithfulness of God!”

Let us finish this year in a corporate posture of unshakable faith. I believe that 2018 will be a year that the body of Christ embarks into a corporate authority that releases miracles.

Many of you are aware of believers throughout the world contending for the healing of two-year old Jaxson Taylor. The ferocity of this battle over his little life is two fold: it is a battle for the destiny of his call and it is a battle against the corporate faith (authority) of the body of Christ. The enemy knows that this victory will raise the bar of faith. DO NOT BACK DOWN!

This battle is not only for little Jaxson and his family, but it is also a battle to see the corporate prayer of faith and the agreement of the army of God, walking in unity, to be expressed in greater measure in order to experience many miracles.

Now is the time to lift your voice and join your family, your friends, and your congregation in agreement with the body of Christ for Jaxson and for the victory of unity. The enemy has rallied his demonic troops in agreement but GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN US THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD!

Do not hold back. Shout, declare, worship, dance, and come into the unity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

We are one as He is One. Let us shake the enemy’s kingdom with the authority of the Kingdom of our God!

A Time of Fruitfulness and Multiplication in 2018

Kathi Pelton

We are entering into a time where we will see fruitfulness and multiplication. 2017 has been a year of purification and consecration; it has prepared us by ridding us of things that were not aligned with truth and breaking the patterns of the world off our lives.

Purification and Multiplication

The Spirit of the Lord led me to Genesis 35 where God commands Jacob to have his family give up all their foreign gods, purify themselves, and change their garments before settling into a new land. It is no coincidence that God has been doing the same thing in His family over the past year.

After Jacob and his family purified their lives, God moved them to a new land to settle and speaks these words to Jacob,

“And God said to him, “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and increase in number. A nation and a community of nations will come from you, and kings will be among your descendants.” Genesis 35:11

I hear these words being spoken once again. This is a key verse for 2018. We are a royal people and we will reproduce nations and kings. As we allowed the purification and consecration to change our lives, authority came upon us in new measures that we have not experienced before.

The condition of “infertility” is falling off the body of Christ. We will be fruitful and we will multiply. A sign of this will be that many who have struggled to become pregnant will give birth to sons and daughters. These babies will have a “kingly” anointing on their lives that will carry great leadership and authority.

Oneness With Christ

Corporate prayers, worship, and declaration will release spiritual authority and open up nations and people groups and set many free from the captivity of demonic forces. It is a time to both personally and corporately do only what we see Jesus doing.

By grace, we have been clothed in His purity and righteousness and now our steps and hearts must be aligned with His so that we are united in oneness of spirit with Christ.

“But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” 1 Corinthians 6:17

Jesus only did what He saw the Father doing. His actions often did not make sense to human understanding, and offended established religious traditions. We, too, must align all that we do—personally and publicly—with what God is doing.

We cannot move according to human understanding or according to what appeases religious rules, but rather we must yield ourselves to only do what our Father is doing. We must not break ranks or walk outside of the unity of God (John 17:20-23). What seems “good” to human understanding will not always be God’s direction. Do not seek good; seek God!

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: The Joining of Generations

This is a time of the joining of generations (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) and the time of the restoration of families. Where demonic assignments have brought divisions and separations, now God will restore relationships and join the generations to walk together, prefer one another, and learn from one another. Honor will be given to both the old and the young.

The generations will understand that they need one another and they will yield to that realization. Great strength will come as this happens.

Inheritances Restored

Inheritances will be restored and land will be restored. Joy will fill lives, homes, and even cities.

With the restoration of generations and families we will see the release of lands. This will include lands that belonged to families (and were lost or families were displaced from) and lands (cities and nations) that have been held captive.

Taking the Posture of Mary

As we prepare to move into the new year, allow your posture to be as Mary’s when the angel appeared to her and announced that she would conceive the Messiah (Luke 1:38). She said,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

This is the posture that allows the Spirit to come upon you in order to make you fruitful. As we take this posture as a corporate family it releases great power.

I see families and congregations standing together to pray the words of Mary from Luke 1:38. I encourage you to spend time with those you love and those that you worship with to take communion together and echo the words,

“Be it unto me according to your word.”

El Shaddai…God Almighty

We will settle into a land and place of rest. El Shaddai (God Almighty) will be made known among you and make Himself known through you. You will be fruitful and multiply in the days ahead. The womb has been prepared and 2018 will be a year of birthing what He has placed within you.

Get ready to see:

• Yielded hearts to the will of God

• Fruitfulness

• Multiplication

• Conceptions

• Restorations of families

• Restoration of generations

• Inheritances restored (spiritual and physical—including land)

• Corporate authority increased

• Nations and cities held captive set free

• Unity

We will see the “more than you can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20) manifest in lives, families, and regions.

El Shaddai (God Almighty) will reveal His love and might in 2018!
