CALIFORNIA! A Fire Will Come Forth From You That Will Change The Nation

By Kathi Pelton

This week I have been in our home state of California. I began in our hometown of Santa Rosa where the devastating 2017 #TubbsFire destroyed 6000 homes and buildings and took many lives. I finished our trip in Redding, California where the 2018 #CarrFire had a similar devastating effect. While there we were with friends from the Chico/Paradise area where this past year saw the entire city of Paradise destroyed by the #CampFire.

We all were worshipping together last night (people from all three regions and beyond). A prophetic song began to come forth about the love of God and as it did I was taken into a visionary encounter:

The Vision

I saw the three California fires (Tubbs, Camp and Paradise) and that devastated Northern California. Then three phrases began to be heralded over the land,

“How deep is the love of God.”

“How wide is the love if God.”

“How high is the love of God.”

As each phrase (or declaration) was released over the land a wildfire of the love of God came upon California. This was a fire that people were running into rather than away from. It restored rather than devastated. It brought life instead of death.

There is a saying in America that says, “As California goes, so goes the nation.” Though this has been a negative truth for those who desire righteousness in our nation, it will suddenly be redeemed and embraced as California releases the fire of the depths, width and heights of the love of God in the days ahead.

I saw the Lion of Judah and His mane was flames of fire. Then He released a roar of His immense love over the state. He roared three times and each roar fit with the above vision and fire came forth from His mouth; the fire of His love!

“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:14-19

Get ready to see the Golden State afire with the love of God that will ignite the nation with a “love revival!”

Missing Puzzle Pieces Are Coming Together

by Kathi Pelton

I was taken into a vision where I saw angels standing around a table and they were intently looking down at it. I couldn’t see what they were looking at because they fully encircled this large table. Every few minutes one angel would make a sudden movement which would cause all the angels to shout out in joy. Then they would return to looking intently at whatever was on the table once again. Finally I was taken over the table and was able to see what they were doing. I saw a massive jigsaw puzzle that had faces, places, destinations and promises being revealed as the missing pieces were found and then joined together. Each time an angel found a missing piece and linked it into the proper place it would release a “kairos” moment in time on earth and all the angels would shout out for joy. Then they would return to looking for the next missing piece.

We are in a time where “missing pieces” in lives will suddenly come together that releases a “kairos moment” bringing you into new places (destinations), new relationships (connections), new assignments and promises (desires) fulfilled. They will often look very different then you planned or expected.

The missing pieces are very strategic for fulfilling personal and corporate destinies. We are truly in a kairos moments where the movements of pieces (people, places, purposes) is being done with heavenly timing and strategy. This particular puzzle that I saw angels working so intently on is a picture of a strategic blueprint being put together for lives and nations that will align earthly things with heavenly things. This is a “now” puzzle being assembled for establishing heavenly mandates and purposes. It was hidden from the eyes of men to protect the great impact it will have upon the earth.

There are and will continue to be many pieces moved from one place to another so that they are fit into the proper place to bring forth what the Lord is doing across the earth. These movements and joined pieces (lives) will cause a “coming together of purposes.” Many will find themselves in places they never expected to be and with people that they did not expect to be joined to. These are divinely strategic moves and relationships that will reveal a full picture where there has been missing pieces that stopped forward movement.

When you find yourself in an unexpected place or with an unexpected person or group of people, be sure to pay close attention and invite the Lord to reveal if you are in a kairos moment. That new relationship may be the missing piece in the puzzle of your life. That new location may be the place that the seeds you’ve sown suddenly will bear fruit.

It is time to expect the unexpected!! Don’t be thrown off by the sudden reordering of your steps because God is ordering His people’s steps to place them into His divine storyline and picture that will establish His Kingdom. Many plans that have been made will be intercepted and interrupted by the reordering of steps. The plans were hidden from you because they needed to be protected due to the strategic nature that they carry. They will surprise you but they will also catch the “enemy off guard” because he thought you were going one direction and without warning you will be somewhere that he was completely unaware of causing many victories to be won because it was hidden.

Be quick to let go of plans made and even to release those that you made plans with. Know that it is for good and not for evil! It is part of the moving of missing pieces that will establish great victories. Bless the movements of people and receive the new plans because they are divine blueprints. Do not misinterpret these sudden and unexpected moves because that will cause divisions. Do not try to understand that which is not comprehended by human understanding. God’s ways are not our ways!

This is a time to be flexible, humble and to not be offended at the sudden change of plans. Understand that things have been hidden because of the greatness of the impact they will have. The unexpected steps or plans are better then what you originally had planned. Trust the Lord!

“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9

DecreeA Thing And It Will Be Established

by Kathi Pelton

“You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28

On September 30th we will enter the Hebrew year 5780. The Hebrew word for this time is “Pey” which represents a mouth that has wisdom. The past decade has been a decade of “seeing” what God is saying but now we will enter into a decade of speaking (decreeing, declaring and prophesying) the wisdom that comes forth from God. We will hear His sound and as we speak it, sing it and decree it things will be established on earth as they are in heaven.

Kim Engel wrote the following paragraph that gives greater insight on “Pey”,

“Pey” is the Hebrew letter for the number 80, a picture symbol of a mouth. Discerning when to speak and when to be quiet will be a critical component during the next decade if we are to see the Kingdom of God growing in our lives and our world through our declarations of faith. “Ayin” gives insight, but it is the “Pey” (mouth) that gives insight expression. Wisdom is the key.

This time will remove the “silencer” that the enemy has put upon many who are created to be a mouth that speaks and sings what the Lord is saying. The mute will speak! They will have a voice of authority and wisdom.

The Lord also showed me that “those who have no voice” will be heard! Specifically the unborn. The cry of babies that the enemy has silenced will come forth and babies that would have been aborted will not only live but they will be a voice to their generation and the generations to come.

Women will be given their voice back in a way that brings reformation, honor and wisdom. It will break oppression off of daughters; causing them to find identity in the inward places rather than the outward. I recently heard Chuck Pierce say that when men the revelation and understand regarding the honor of women that it will break the cycles of pornography that is plaguing and defiling both men and women. A sound of deliverance will come and set many free.

The African American community will become a voice like a corporate voice of Martin Luther King, Jr. and they will decree the dream of God. Freedom will be the sound that they release and it will break through racial barriers.

The voice of the Lord will be heard and it will bring back the fear of the Lord. It will come through decrees that establish and through warnings that invite men and women into wisdom and repentance that will thwart judgement and release mercy.

I hear the words from Psalm 29 being declared over this segue into a decade of “sound and wisdom”,

“The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the Lord shakes the desert; the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”” Psalm‬ ‭29:3-9‬ ‭

The glory of the Lord will come upon His people and the cry of “Glory!” Will be heard throughout the earth.

The Triple Grace Anointing: Planes, Trains and Automobiles Prophecy

By Kathi Pelton

Yesterday our son-in-law drove us to the train station so that we could take the train to Washington, D.C. to catch a plane today. As he dropped us off he said something about “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and I jokingly said, “Watch because God will give me a word about that tomorrow.” Well, I woke up this morning and this was what I heard as I was coming out of my dream,

“The call to go out by means of planes, trains and automobiles is coming upon a three strand cord generation of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They will move in the unity and oneness of the Three-in-One God that they serve. They will possess a triple grace anointing that carries salvation, healing, and deliverance wherever they go. They will heal the sick, raise the dead, and make disciples of men. When they pray the deaf will hear, the blind will see, and the lame will walk.

“Look for the triples in the days ahead because the combination of generations, anointing, and gifting will intermingle and converge to make new wine. It will be the best wine ever served! Watch for gatherings of this Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob company to come forth in barns, tents, and stadiums because this is where the wine will be poured out. Then out of these venues will arise training/discipleship schools, home churches, and hubs that host community that will nurture and train those coming into the family of God.

“They will be like a glory train filled with thanksgiving and joy. They will be unstoppable because they will carry the glory of ‘oneness’ that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit continually enjoy. ‘This oneness will be the answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:21 and then the world will know that Jesus truly is the only Savior!”

Wow, what an amazing word from our God! I also heard is that this will be an “eve” or night before a great celebration (such as Christmas Eve). This move will be the eve or night of preparation before the true celebration…the wedding feast.

On a personal note, every year our family gathers on Thanksgiving Eve to watch the movie “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”; it is a fun night before the big celebration of Thanksgiving, where family gathers around the table for a feast. The Lord said to me, “This time will mark an ‘eve era’ that comes before the great feast.”

We are already seeing tents, barns, and stadium gatherings arising now; but they are like a “dress rehearsal” or “wedding rehearsal” for what is about to come. God is first putting His divine order on the details; He is purifying His bride and He is making the preparations during this eve of the “eve era” that will gather and invite those to the wedding feast.

It is the parable of the wedding feast we read of in Luke 14,

“At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’ “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ “ ‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’ “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.”” Luke‬ ‭14:17-23

We will go to where they are: the byways, country lanes, city streets—and invite them to come. We will compel them to come and they will fill His house. Get ready!

This is a repost of a dream that I had last year that the Lord brought back to my memory.

I had a vivid dream where heavy rain began to suddenly and unexpectedly pour; it was a downpour like I have never before witnessed that was more like a flash flood from heaven to earth. As this downpour hit the earth, flashes of lightning were accompanied by the simultaneous crash of thunder as these strikes hit a grove of tall evergreen trees, splitting them in two.

I awoke from the dream hearing the words from Psalm 29:5,

“The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; Yes, the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.”

The Message Bible words it like this,

“God’s thunder smashes cedars, God topples the northern cedars.”

This dream came in the midst of the Spirit speaking to me daily about the need for the “fear of the Lord” to come back upon His people so that they can walk and release the fear of the Lord into the earth.

“So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

When the enemy comes in like a flood (through witchcraft, perversions, and evil of all sorts) the Lord also comes like a flood to raise up a standard against him. I believe that God’s voice is about to come and raise up a standard! As the fear of the Lord returns to His Church it will release the awe of God that breaks—shatters—everything that has stood against Him.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20

A flood of evil that is being redefined as “good”has come to call darkness light and light darkness. But the fear of the Lord is about to touch the earth with a powerful strike that brings forth the Lord’s standard.

In my dream it was evergreen trees that were struck by this lightning. An evergreen tree was the symbol on the “Appeal to Heaven” flag that was flown by Washington’s Cruisers (George Washington’s first naval ships). This tree represented “Liberty” or freedom at the beginning of our great nation. Today it has become a symbol of prayer to see God return to our nation.

The definition of liberty is this,

“the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views.”

Or,

“the power or scope to act as one pleases.”

The enemy has been rewriting his definition of liberty within our nation and within the nations of the world. It has become a liberty to pursue evil and call it good while oppressing those who call for the righteous standard of God to be raised up. Within the context of the Bible the word “liberty” means freedom. This is the freedom to live apart from slavery to the masters of sin and the world’s systems.

Within the standard of the fear of the Lord we are given freedom from the grip of slavery to sin and to unrighteousness. The enemy has set up a Babylonian culture that enslaves and blinds many from the “way of freedom” that Jesus provided for us on the cross. When Jesus came and died, a way was made through grace for all to be set free.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭

When He died the veil was torn and we were given free access to boldly come before the throne of grace and be reconciled with God; enjoying His presence where true liberty is found. I believe that our nation (as well as the nations of this world) are about to see a great “rending of the veil” that has blinded the eyes of the world from seeing their Messiah. The gods of this world have stood like trees, creating a veil that blinds people from seeing Jesus and from the revelation of true liberty and freedom. These “gods” have cast a shadow of darkness that call darkness light and light darkness.

But wait! The Lord has the final say! His voice thunders; breaking the cedars and rending the veil of separation between God and man.

As the Lord returns the awe and the fear of the Lord to His Church it will release a flood and a sound that lifts up a standard that reverses the tide of evil with a tsunami of righteousness and truth.

“The time will come,” says the LORD, “when the grain and grapes will grow faster than they can be harvested. Then the terraced vineyards on the hills of Israel will drip with sweet wine!” Amos 9:13

Now is the time to invite the fear of the Lord to come upon your life, your church, your city, and your nation. You are a part of the whole body and as the corporate anointing is established in the fear of the Lord it will bring liberty, freedom and breakthrough to the individual and the whole.

The God of Peace will Crush Satan Under Your Feet

by Kathi Pelton

As I was waiting upon the Lord I heard the verse from Romans 16:20 that says,

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”

The Lord knows how you have stood firm. He has seen how you have resisted the temptations that have come to cause you to act according to the flesh. He has seen every act of obedience and trust that you have walked in. He has also seen how Satan has been harassing you!

The Lord says one word,

“Enough!”

I hear this once again regarding what you have been facing. You may be wondering why you have not yet seen the change and help that you have hoped for but I sense that He wants you to know that it will come soon! The declaration has been made and soon your enemy will be crushed under your feet.

This is not a time to “sit down” in defeat but to continue to stand firm in the posture of faith that you have fought so hard to hold on to. Put every lie, every lack, every temptation to concede defeat under your feet. Resist the devil!

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

James 4:7

The devil comes when you are feeling weak and tired to try to create divisions, offenses, jealousy, envy and even bitterness. But God is able to manifest His strength to you in the midst of your time of weakness. Stand in His strength to resist the evil one.

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

You are not weak! You are strong because the Word of God does not lie! Allow this truth to revive you. You are so close to your breakthrough. The enemy works the hardest to get you to “give in” to his schemes right before your victory. Stand firm in the strength of His grace and put every one of his schemes under your feet.

You are an Overcomer! You have not been defeated. You can walk in your victory even before you see the manifestation of it in the natural realm.

Now is the time to stand in Christ, your Overcomer! His victory is your victory. All that He has belongs to you. Declare your freedom, declare your victory and declare what is true.

I encourage you to do a prophetic act of writing down the lies that have wearied you and write down the things that you need to overcome. Then put that paper on the ground and stand on it. Put those things under your feet and declare truth that through Christ you have overcome and received victory.

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12

A crown is coming to you because you have stood and resisted the evil one. You have overcome by the blood of the Lamb. Now is the time to see all that has come against you crushed under your feet.

Isaiah 41:13

For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”

Amen!

Do You Hear His Whistle?

by Kathi Pelton

In all the reports written and conversations being held regarding a few known voices that have “fallen away” we must continue to know that the Lord has sent forth His whistle and many are gathering with a resounding, “Yes!” in their hearts to give all for the sake of His glory. Though the enemy is highlighting the few losses— we must not forget that the gains are far greater!

“”I will whistle for them and gather them in, for I have redeemed them, and they shall be as many as they were before.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:8‬ ‭

Though this verse is specifically speaking of Israel, it also speaks of the restoration of His family that has and is being grafted in. Headline news mostly focuses on the losses but the Lord is announcing the advancement and the multiplication of sons and daughters that are responding to His whistle. They are returning to the Lord in numbers far greater than the few who are falling away. We can pray for those ones but we must not forget to rejoice at those who are daily being added to the family of God and those who are leaving all to gather at the sound of His whistle.

“I will make them strong in the Lord, and they shall walk (go forth) in his name,” declares the Lord.” Zechariah‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭

There is a sound, a whistle, being released that is calling the family together. It is the sound of the glory of the Lord, the sound of oneness and the sound of the Bridegroom calling to His Bride. There is a response to His whistle coming forth! It releases the sound of an army marching in unison, shoulder to shoulder (without jostling one another). It is the sound of the lovesick bride that leaves her comfort to run after the Bridegroom. And it is the beautiful sight of an unbroken covenant that releases the oil that keeps the lamps of the wise virgins burning.

Let’s pray for those who have fallen away but even more, let us join the Lord’s “whistle” that calls the redeemed to gather and multiplies the sons and daughters. Let us call to the north, the south, the east and the west— let them go, do not hold them back!

“I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth–“ Isaiah 43:6

This is a time of gathering the family to march as one army; carrying the glory of the Lord. He will have dominion from sea to sea, from the rivers to the ends of the earth and His people will walk as one with Him. They will stand as ambassadors, the government of God, to bring what is decreed in heaven into the earth.

Do you hear His whistle? Join in!

Humility & Trust Will Establish You

by Kathi Pelton

The Spirit of the Lord woke me up in the middle of the night speaking to me about “establishing a remnant that walks in humility and trust.” I turned over and the clock read 3:12 and I knew that He was speaking to me out of Zephaniah 3:12,

“Those who are left will be the lowly and humble, for it is they who trust in the name of the Lord.”

God is dealing with pride, the strength of men, the unjust power of men, boasting and wickedness throughout the nations. We will see the “judgements” against the arrogant play out as the days go by. But, for those who are humble and contrite and for those who have put their full trust in the Lord (His remnant); they will be strengthened, He will prosper them and He will show His kindness to them (Zeph. 2:7). In their weakness, He will show Himself strong and mighty.

For those who have turned away from the Lord or who have turned to trusting in their own strength, there is an invitation to return to Him as their “stronghold of hope.”

“Seek the Lord, all who are humble, and follow his commands. Seek to do what is right and to live humbly. Perhaps even yet the Lord will protect you— protect you from his anger on that day of destruction.” Zephaniah‬ ‭2:3‬ ‭

God loves the humble but in His righteousness He opposes the proud. I believe that what has prevented the remnant of God’s people from “dwelling together in unity” and prevented the glory of the Lord that comes from the oneness share by God (John 17:21-24) is residual pride. We all should be asking the Lord to rid us of the stumbling block of pride that causes men to fall and our brothers to stumble as we run together.

I continue to hear in my spirit the word, “preference.” Over and over I will hear it and see the full circle and unbroken fellowship of the Father, Son and Spirit. It is perfect and divine preference that yields to the other in absolute unity. Preference is like a rhythm that releases the glory of the Lord.

We cannot allow national pride, judgements, personal pride, boasting or our strength to lead us onward. We must humble ourselves in personal relationships and in corporate relationships. We must lay down our prejudices against one another and pick up preferences!

Just last week my youngest son had a believer speak a word of judgment on the basis of him being “American”. Though he is sensitive in his spirit, he is not emotionally frail in any way— yet, his spirit was so grieved, not for him as an American, but for the break in oneness that this judgement carried, which is so precious to the Lord. It left him in tears and deep intercession.

We must humble ourselves and lay down judgements and boastfulness. We must ask the Lord to examine our hearts and give us humility. Our strength and trust is to be in Him alone. He will judge the proud but as He does that He will exult the humble with authority and strength that brings great light in the midst of darkness and shaking.

Humility and trust will establish you and cause His kindness to be poured out upon you. This is the hour to pray for the washing away of pride and self-sufficiency so that He will be exulted in the nations.

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”” Luke‬ ‭14:11‬ ‭

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.
