An Opportunity for Transforming an Inner-City Neighborhood

A door has been opened to us to be part of an initiative in West Palm Beach, Florida beginning June 20, 2019.

The Awaken the Dawn team will work in conjunction with local ministries, business leaders, and other partners to see the revitalization of an inner-city neighborhood in West Palm, Florida, with the goal of of long-term, sustainable transformation on a city-wide level.

We have been asked for our involvement in setting up a tent to host the presence of God in the area as spiritual covering and support to the physical work of restoration and transformation.

Singers, musicians, and prayer warriors from across the country will join us in praying through the area, receiving strategic blueprints, shifting the spiritual atmosphere, and establishing a house of prayer in the midst of this amazing project.

All those who say “yes” to this invitation will do so as volunteers; therefore, this assignment will need to be funded by supporters. The cost for us to take part in this missions project is approximately $1500.00.

This is an opportunity for the body of Christ to sow into sustainable transformation that will truly reach the poor and needy with hope and new beginnings, while bringing city transformation.

Let us fulfill the following verses in our cities and nation!

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—when you already have it with you.— Proverbs 3:27-28

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.— Proverbs 11:25

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

It’s Not “Either/Or” but “Both/And”

by Kathi Pelton

So much of life with Christ is not found in an “either/or” answer or posture but rather a “both/and” agreement.

Some examples:

• Is the prayer/worship or evangelism/discipleship more important?

— It’s both/and! Prayer and worship sets the field or prepares the atmosphere so that hearts are softened and the air is clear for eyes to see and ears to hear.

• Are those who go or those who give more important?

— It’s both/and! How can people go without those who give? It’s a partnership in which we have opportunities to do both. The reward and credit is the same in God’s eyes!

• Should we battle darkness or gaze upon His beauty?

— It’s both/and! Intimacy is not left in the place of gazing when we enter the spiritual battles. It is an unbroken bond of intimacy that fights together and retreats to rest together. They are equally important.

• Should we take our homes/city or go to the other cities/nations?

—It’s both/and! As a mom I spend a lot of time with my natural family nurturing, loving and making a home where His presence abides; but I also go out to strengthen other’s children, marriages and homes. We must stay and we must go because what we build in our homes and cities become what we can bring to strengthen another’s home and city (or nation).

• Do we preach love or truth?

—Both love abs truth! The love described in 1 Corinthians 13 is the only love that is filled with truth! All other love is conditional but agape love does not demand something in return.

There are more examples then I’d ever be able to post but these are just a few. People often have a “for or against” posture or an “either/or” posture but that comes from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It creates separate camps and divisions over opinions, interpretations, human knowledge, limited understanding, different cultures, etc. The tree of life yields the sweet fruit of John 17:21. It is the unity/oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit share and enjoy that we have been invited into.

Though they are One in every way, we can enter into that oneness and nurture unity with our brothers and sisters by laying down our right to be right. I’m not talking about compromising convictions but acknowledging that we all see in part and carry different parts in different seasons. Every part of the five-fold is equally important and needed to see the fullness of the Kingdom established. Every part of the body is needed to perform the function that they were created for. Every expression is a revelation of a facet of His beauty. Not one of us is completely “right” in our understanding of scripture or application of scripture but God sees our hearts and the motivation of our hearts. We are clothed in His righteousness in the midst of our imperfections and even misrepresentations of His true nature. We ask for clean hands and pure hearts so that our greatest longing is to see Him receive what He died for…mankind!

Let’s move away from the either/or and for/against mindset and begin to eat of the tree of life until we see the longing of Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 fulfilled.

He deserves His prayer to be answered by a people who will humble themselves before Him and one another in the only “camp” worth living in…the tent of Jesus!

“that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” John‬ ‭17:21‬ ‭

God Is For You!!

May 23.2019– Kathi Pelton

• 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 ‭

The Countdown! 10, 9, 8…

The countdown for our Washington DC trip has begun!

On May 29th I will be flying to Washington DC along with our daughter and son-in-law to gather with leaders from across the nation. We will worship, pray, join hearts and hear from the Lord regarding the steps ahead to see our nation return to her righteous foundations. We long to see God’s original intent for our nation restored and realized.

Though there is often great resistance as we move forward to see His Kingdom established, we rest in knowing that the victory is the Lord’s and as we say, “Yes!” we will know that we become a part of that victory.

Will you join our “yes” by adding your “yes” to praying for us and supporting us with a financial gift?

As always, we will go in faith, which is our confident assurance of all that we need.

We will be posting updates during our trip to keep you aware of all that is happening. We will also be joining David’s Tent on the National Mall for a day of prayer and worship as well as going to Fredericksburg, Virginia for some strategic meetings.

Thank you for your prayers and faithful support~~Kathi Pelton

You Will Tremble As You See The Goodness Of The Lord Come Upon The Desolate Places

by Kathi Pelton

When we think of trembling we usually think of fear or a cold chill. It is rarely spoken in the context of something good. But there is a trembling that happens in moments of awe and wonder. It catches you off guard causing you to collapse in joyful tears under the weight of such goodness.

We see this kind of trembling when a young child sees their daddy for the first time after a long military tour or when two lovers who have been separated by a great distance are finally able to embrace. We see this when a mother holds her newborn baby or the first time that the daughter that my husband and I fought to adopt was finally placed in our arms. It is a trembling that comes from the awe of a long awaited desire fulfilled.

“And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of all the good that I do for them. They shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the prosperity I provide for it.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33:9‬ ‭

Though this verse is speaking of the restoration of Jerusalem; as I awoke this morning the Lord gave it to me for His Bride…you! The Lord is about to show you His faithfulness in such a way that it will leave you trembling in awe. The display and manifestation of His goodness and prosperity upon your life will also cause your enemies to fear and tremble as they see all the plans they sent against you crumble before the goodness of God.

Though you’ve felt like a barren and desolate city, soon you will watch as the faithful goodness of the Lord overtakes all that stood against you; causing you to prosper with shouts of great joy! This will be the sound that comes forth from your life,

“…the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voices of those who sing, as they bring thank offerings to the house of the Lord: ‘Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!’ For I will restore the fortunes of the land as at first, says the Lord.” Jeremiah‬ ‭33:11‬ ‭

This was His promise for the holy city of Jerusalem and it is His promise over you. He is good and He is your Restorer. Now is the time to shout His goodness over your desolate area! Shout it over the barren wombs, bad reports and those who are sick. Shout it over every waste place. Shout to that place of dread in the pit of your stomach. Fill your lack with shouts of, “The Lord is good!”

His promises are true and they are sure! Therefore, you can begin to release the voice of gladness be heard even now. The enemy has been shouting with a voice of dread, hopelessness and accusation for far too long. His voice comes and sucks the air out of the room and out of your lungs because it is the voice of lies and darkness. Break all agreements with that voice because it only comes to kill, steal and destroy.

It is time to raise the voice of the redeemed. Let the sound of those who have been given abundant life go into the atmosphere and into the land. Let us shout,

“Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!”

Watch as a trembling of awe and wonder returns to His Church! This tremble will cause mountains to fall and desolate places to blossom with goodness and prosperity.

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!

“MAYDAY, MAYDAY!!”

by Kathi Pelton

On May 1, 2002 my very first word was published on The Elijah List. This word was a “breaker-word” for our lives and ministry. As I awoke this morning, May 1, 2019 the Spirit reminded me of it and said, “Kathi, this is a full circle moment and that word is for now once again.”

Here is the word…a then and now word!

MAYDAY! MAYDAY!” May 1, 2002

On April 30 the Lord told me to pay attention to May Day which was May 1st. I watched and listened all that day but nothing significant seemed to happen.

—————————

THE SHIP, TOSSED VIOLENTLY

—————————

Then last night I was taken into a vision in the middle of the night to a ship that was being tossed violently upon a very turbulent sea. It was very dark and the fog bank was so thick that you could not see a foot in front of you. As I was taken closer to the ship I could see that it had been storm tossed for some time now.

This ship was lost at sea. There was no way for the crew to find its way back to where it had come and yet it couldn’t see ahead to know where it was going. It seemed to be at the mercy of the storm which looked as though it would never end.

Nothing was secure upon this ship, everything was being tossed into the sea except the crew. Then I was taken into the ship where I saw one of the crew on the communications radio saying over and over, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!” I heard no response.

———————————–

THE LORD WAS ASKING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE DISTRESS CALL

———————————–

At this point I came out of the vision and realized that the Lord wasn’t asking me to pay attention to “May Day” (The date, May 1st) but He was asking me to pay attention to the distress call, “Mayday, mayday!”

I asked the Lord what this meant and He told me that many lives and ministries had recently been in the middle of a storm. Their vision had been blocked and their lives and plans tossed upon the rough sea. They had used up every means of self effort to find their way back to safety but the storm and lack of vision had left them lost at sea.

The Lord said that He has heard our distress calls. He has heard our call to Him, “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday!”

—————————-

RESCUE HOST IS ON THEIR WAY

—————————-

Though we do not yet see it, a rescue host is on their way. God has commissioned a great rescue host to come to us with all the provision to get us to safe harbor. This harbor will not be where we started because we can not go back there but it will be a new place, with new ships, new cargo, new crew members, new scenery, new life.

It was necessary to have everything tossed into the sea in order for the “New Order” to come. We have new orders and this host will bring to each one of us those orders. We have new passages that we have not known about but these will also be revealed to us.

We will have new vision, clearer vision.

We have new provisions that are on there way, provisions that we have not known of because they are not coming by “our efforts” but by His grace and help.

Our distress call has been heard…help is on the way.

Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of man plans his ways but the Lord orders his steps.”

Your Persistent Prayers Will Open the Door of Breakthrough

by Kathi Pelton

The other day we were blessed by having a team from YWAM (Youth With a Mission) come to our home to pray and prophesy over us as we face many transitions. During this precious time we put our daughter’s dog out on our deck. She was not a happy dog to be kept away from all of the excitement so she began scratching at our glass door. She scratched and scratched and scratched.

Her scratching began to become like the sound of fingernails going down a chalkboard. She was persistently pleading with her paws,

“Open the door, open the door, OPEN THE DOOR!”

I began to feel myself getting annoyed with her. I was about to get up to open the door to answer her persistent request when I suddenly heard the Holy Spirit speak to me,

“This puppy is like the story of the persistent widow who came before the unjust judge. Her persistence finally wore Him down and he granted her request. Persistent prayer will open the door for you.”

The story of the persistent widow goes like this,

Luke 18:1-8

Jesus told them a story showing that it was necessary for them to pray consistently and never quit. He said, “There was once a judge in some city who never gave God a thought and cared nothing for people. A widow in that city kept after him: ‘My rights are being violated. Protect me!’

“He never gave her the time of day. But after this went on and on he said to himself, ‘I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding.’”

Then the Master said, “Do you hear what that judge, corrupt as he is, is saying? So what makes you think God won’t step in and work justice for his chosen people, who continue to cry out for help? Won’t he stick up for them? I assure you, he will. He will not drag his feet. But how much of that kind of persistent faith will the Son of Man find on the earth when he returns?”

God is just, He is full of love and He WILL “stick up for you” against injustices. Though your trials may seem to drag on, your faith and persistent prayers are creating an atmosphere that bruises the enemy. Your prayers are not being ignored but they are doing a deep work in your life and character while shifting the atmosphere around your life as well.

I began to see our glass door, that was being scratched upon, as the enemy’s head. Our dog would not be dissuaded by the door that blocked her from her desire. Like the persistent widow, whose requests were like bruises upon this judge, so are our continual prayers bruising the enemy.

I hear the Spirit saying,

“The door will be opened for you!”

God is not ignoring you or deaf to your prayers but knows the perfect time to open the door for you. Though it feels like you’ve been left out in the cold (without your desired answer), suddenly and at the appointed time the door will open and you will enter with great joy.

Do not stop praying. Do not stop knocking at the door before you and do not believe the lie that God is ignoring your request. You are scratching, bruising and tearing down the lie that “God is not faithful” and defeating the persistent enemy that taunts His sons and daughters with accusations of being orphans. Abandonment is not possible for the sons and daughters of God. He will never leave nor forsake you! You will see the faithfulness of God come to your aid.

I will finish with the truth and encouragement from Romans 5:1-5,

“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.”

You are being changed through your persistence and patience. You will never be the same and when the door opens you will walk through it as a different person…as the person He created you to be.

He dearly loves us!
