God Says, “Daughters Arise!”

by Kathi Pelton

On this day 99 years ago it was ratified throughout our nation that women had the right to vote. It became the “Law of the Land.” No longer could women be forced to sit by and watch men only exercise their rights.

I was recently asked to write a story for a book that is concerning the challenges of being a woman in ministry. Though the challenges can appear subtle and overlooked because of familiarity, they still exist and are often “not so subtle.” The stories I’ve heard from other women in ministry and even experiences that I’ve had would shock many at how far we still have to go to live in the truth that we were created equal. We have come a long ways but still have a long ways to go.

I am not a “women’s rights activist” but I am a believer in equal rights for race and gender— and the church should be leading the way in this.

As I sat down with the Lord today I felt His strong passion for seeing what He has placed in His daughters given the value and place that they are due. His Spirit is not less in women or His gifts somehow diminished; yet often we still see a “token women” thrown into a line up of a dozen male speakers (as if to prove that there is an honor for them being given). I sense that the Lord is about to deal with an age old prejudice that has existed in the world and in His family of God for far too long. I hear Him say, “Daughters Arise! Women Arise! No longer will you be held down or held back!”

God, in His mercy, is dealing with all areas of prejudices that have misinterpreted His scriptures and His creation. God has a dream of “oneness” and that oneness prefers and sees other of any race or gender as equal or better than themselves.

Let Him examine our hearts and wash away all remaining prejudices that have infected His people with wrong beliefs or actions. May His might women arise in this hour in both humility and authority to reveal Christ in them unashamedly and without being censored.

We are His workmanship— created to fully express Him without being held down.

Washington, D.C. Ministry Update— and More!

After our week in the capital of Canada (Ottawa, Ontario) to be a part of the Watchmen for the Nations “As One” gathering and to pray on Parliament Hill, we headed to Washington, D.C. to pray in our capital city.

Stopping In Gettysburg to pray along the way was a surprise request from the Lord but turned out to be a powerful time.

After arriving in DC we have gone to numerous places to pray together; the Lincoln Memorial, Viet Nam Memorial Wall, David’s Tent, Arlington National Cemetery, The US Capitol, US Archives and the Supreme Court.

Yesterday we gathered with Bound for Life and did a “Silent Siege” for the unborn at the US Supreme Court. After the silent siege we prayed and took communion together.

Tomorrow we will be speaking at a church just outside of DC in Virginia. We are looking forward to connecting with more of the body of Christ in this area.

On the 20th we will leave for Fredericksburg, Virginia to prepare for the Awaken the Dawn National Prayer Gathering with Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Brian Francis Hume, David Bradshaw and others. Please pray that all the the Lord has on His heart for this time will be accomplished. The gathering is August 22-24.

Once again we want to give you the opportunity to invest in the fulfillment of this prayer journey that we have been on along with many others who have prayed and stood with us in financial support. We stepped out in faith to say “yes” to the Lord’s request for us to go on this lengthy journey that spans two nations and many states and provinces. Thank you for stepping out with us– we know that your reward will be great!

Parliament Hill…Update

A team of eleven of us from different states (CA, OR, WA, MA) all gathered together for a week in Ottawa to join in with the Canadian family at the “As One” gathering.

Words cannot express adequately all that the Lord did to restore, heal, unite and bring us into a oneness that we have never experienced to this depth on a corporate level.

We watched such a powerful and beautiful joining of the generations (from the very young taking the lead to those in their 80’s and every age in between). God took us so deep in worship, prayer, joy and reconciliation. We danced with great abandonment and wept with overwhelmed hearts as God brought together relationships that had been torn apart.

Humility was the key and understanding the truth that when we are emptied and have nothing to offer but our weakness; it is then that His strength is made manifest.

It wasn’t a “marrying of ministries but rather a “marrying of family.” The oneness that Jesus prayed for right before going to the cross in John 17:21-23 became the glory that wrapped around us to do what only God could do.

As the gathering ended a double rainbow appeared over the Shaw Centre in Ottawa where we met together.

We finished our time in Ottawa by praying on Parliament Hill. We stood before the doors and announced that the One true King of Canada is upon the throne and rules over the nation with wisdom, justice and righteousness. Then we sang, All Hail King Jesus together.

From there we went to the National House of Prayer in Ottawa that we helped launch in 2005. Though we have been there many times throughout the years; this time was particularly precious as it became a full circle moment for Jeff and I as well as the NHOP leaders, Rob and Fran Parker. We spent time worshipping, praying and prophesying over one another and our nations. It was a time that we will never forget.

As we head to Washington D.C. we will carry with us all that God did in Canada to our release in our nation. As we have spent almost two decades standing on guard for Canada, which is such a great honor, we know that God is stretching our arms across both nations. We believe that the open heaven we all experienced in Ottawa will open over Washington, D.C. as well.

Thank you for standing with us in prayer and support as we continue this journey. If you would like to invest financially into this time you can go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

Utah and Salt Lake City Region…You Are Called To Be An Epicenter of His Glory!

by Kathi Pelton

What an honor it has been to be in the Salt Lake City region to release love, worship, intercession and His name over this region. I have fallen in love with the people here and with God’s heart for this state and region. This is a key place in our nation for resurrection life, the glory of the Lord to fill HIS temple (and bring down false temples) and to see a national shift take place. You are a miracle waiting to happen!

I have heard such promising words from the Spirit of God while here. One was, “Those who seek will find Me.” Wow, there are so many caught in the LDS religion that truly are “seeking to know God”…they are longing for His agape love to transcend works that never measure up. I prophesy along with Jesus, “They will find Him!”

I also heard the words, “Prophecy, ‘It is done’” I prophesy the victory that Jesus has established! Life, glory, unity, reformation, salvation, freedom and strongholds coming down that set the captives free! This region is called to bring forth family, unity, glory and to disciple those who will then disciple others.

A pastor shared with us how the Christian churches in this region are like a twelve string guitar with each string playing a different sound. The enemy has tried to keep the body of Christ separated, due to the low percentage of Christians in the region (which creates a sense of “hold tight into what you have and let no one steal your crown” mentality). This has created a dulled sound but when every string is played together it releases the sound of unity and harmony. All twelve strings are needed to release the unified sound that sets the people free and brings forth true family. Family is key here, so unity among the Christians is greatly resisted by the enemy. The pastors and churches are working hard to “play together.”

Let’s agree and decree over this state and region that unity will be established among His people first and then true family will come forth. John 17:21-23 is Jesus’ prayer for unity and oneness…it is the divine preference, the agape love, the unbroken intimacy of the Father, Son and Spirit that we are invited into. John 17 also talks about the “glory that was before the beginning of the world”; this glory is that unbroken circle of love that has a sound, a movement, a fragrance and a power to bring divine order. When we talk about carrying the glory or the glory coming then we need to know that it takes a “surrender to the glory that was before the world began…the unity and oneness shared by our God!” True glory is found in what the Father, Son and Spirit have in the complete and perfect oneness they share.

Utah and the Salt Lake City region…there is deep revelation about the glory that He longs to share with you; it is found in the mystery of unity, oneness and family. Seek it out like the greatest treasure known to mankind! The resistance and strongholds over the people and the land exists because you have a buried treasure for the nation and the nations hidden here. The enemy knows that it is the greatest weapon for all mankind. He knows that if the church is one as God is one that it is “game over!” This is an epicenter for the glory that comes from oneness!

Let’s stand with them and cry out, prophesy, decree and hold up their arms to see the glory and freedom come. What is birthed here and broken through here will effect the whole nation!

I love you UTAH and the Father greatly desires your beauty!!

It Is Done!

by Kathi Pelton

This morning I woke up out of my sleep prophesying the words, “It is done!” I don’t recall what I was dreaming but it didn’t feel like a dream but rather the Spirit of the Lord prophesying over battles, over prayers, over people and over nations. As the words, “It is done!” came forth from my mouth I began to see the finished work of the cross that secured victory coming upon so many things. Then the words repeated again and again…”It is done, it is done, it is done….prophesy, IT IS DONE!”

I then began to prophesy over my natural family, over my spiritual family, over my city and my nation the words, “It is done!” I prophesied over the fight to end abortion, over the lost and into the atmosphere…It is done! As I prophesied these words, my faith began to rise and authority began to flow from deep within my spirit. The words contained the victory that Jesus obtained when He spoke the words, “It is finished!”

Whatever need you have, whatever battle you are facing, whatever loved one you are carrying and whatever prayer you are praying; I prophesy over that thing and over that person, “It is done!” Join with me and declare the victory and finished work that prophesies the victorious outcome.

Prophesy over the salvation of your sons and daughters, “It is done!” Prophesy over the full manifestation of provision for your personal needs, “It is done!” Prophesy over the battle for the lives of the unborn to be protected, “It is done!” Prophesy over areas of darkness that need the light of Jesus, “It is done!”

Stir up faith and let the words awaken you to reach in faith for the victory that was sealed in the words Jesus spoke when He said, “It is finished!” Death was swallowed up in victory and His words resound over you today just as clearly as they did two thousand years ago. Don’t hold back and don’t back down; let faith arise and let your mouth prophesy the victory!

The Immersion: A Dream

by Kathi Pelton

I had a dream last night where I was offered either a “body spray” of the Lord or a “perfume” of Him. I didn’t fully understand the terminology because it didn’t seem to fit with spiritual language; although perfume surely seemed like the logical choice. Then I watched as people came near to Him to receive an encounter, or “mist,” of His presence and power. They came near Him and enjoyed these encounters, but they didn’t seem to be lasting or transformational. I told the Lord I wanted more than a mist or spray of Him and instead chose the “perfume.”

At that point I was taken to what appeared to be a baptismal pool. I was placed in this pool, immersed in Him— in His full, undiluted presence. As I was immersed in His pure perfume, I lost myself and became one with Him. I realized that this pool was within His eye and I was the “apple of His eye”; His pupil, His focus.

This immersion was completely transformative as it took me from mere encounter to a consummation of oneness with Him. This perfume made me think of the preparation of Esther or the perfume that was poured over the feet of Jesus. The fragrance that permeated the room continued to flow from Him and now also came from me.

There is a choice; encounter or immersion; a mist or a baptism into oneness. The choice is an invitation, but the price for immersion is greater, as you must lose yourself. The gain is greater as well because you will be transformed into the fullness of Him.

An Amazing Dream I Had Last Night… “Blessed Assurance” or “Blessed Insurance”

by Kathi Pelton

I had a vivid but unusual dream last night. In the dream I was seeking to find an insurance policy that would cover my “faith”. I knew that my life was at a high risk point regarding what I was stepping into and wanted insurance in case something happened and we were left with losses. Suddenly a package arrived for me and I opened it; as soon as I held it in my hands I knew that it had sent from Jesus. When I opened it I found that it contained a scroll or rolled up document. As I unrolled it I saw writing on the header of this document that said, “Assurance Policy” It was an not an insurance policy but an assurance policy that gave me a written guarantee that my faith was being covered by His declaration of promised provision. I took it out and signed it before waking up. 
What an amazing dream! I was seeking “insurance” (a guaranteed compensation of loss) and He gave me “assurance” (a positive declaration intended to give confidence; a promise.). 
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
The Greek word for assurance can be translated to mean “concrete”. It is the foundation or concrete proof of something we can stand upon. Therefore this “Assurance Policy” was my concrete proof or promise that there will not be a need for an insurance policy that compensates for loss. What a “blessed assurance” this dream was to me! 
Often, our view of loss and God’s view of loss differ. I was speaking to a group of young adults this week about the subject of God’s faithfulness and asked them if their definition of His faithfulness was based on what they think the outcome of a particular matter should look like. I gave the example of someone praying for a loved one who is ill and ends up dying. I asked them if the faithfulness of God remains true in the midst of what we would see as a great loss. They determined that, “Yes!” His faithfulness remains sure even when we don’t understand. 
I share this not to dampen the word of “assurance” but to break off of many the restraints and strongholds of disappointment that have come through defining His faithfulness by a particular outcome that may have measured His faithfulness. Let us declare and determine (over our past, our present and our future) that is faithfulness is immeasurable, irrevocable and irrefutable! 
“Your faithfulness extends to every generation, as enduring as the earth you created.” Psalm 119:90
Our faith is bound and secured by His faithfulness. His faithfulness is our “assurance policy” in the midst of all that we face and all that we experience. There are no losses with Christ because in Him there is eternal and immeasurable reward. He is worth every risk, every act of faith, every “Yes” spoken, every sacrifice made and every life lived fully unto Him. 
We do not need an insurance policy to back up our faith…we have been given  a “assurance policy” that declares a promise of His faithfulness from generation to generation. 
“God will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:6
We will receive a great and eternal reward for not holding back but giving our all. There are no losses…
“Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.” Deuteronomy 5:33
I will end with the first stanza from the song, “Blessed Assurance”, 
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

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!

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!

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!
