Give and It Will Be Given To You

Today is #GivingTuesday!

Each day of the year I am seeking the Lord regarding how I can give to my readers…”His sons and daughters!” It is a constant joy to hear His words of love and encouragement for you and to be able to scribe them for you to read. My husband and I love to travel our nation and the nations to reveal His love and to declare His faithfulness to all who have ears to hear.

But today is about giving back. 2019 has been a busy and fruitful year and 2020 is going to exceed our wildest dreams as we transition into all that He is asking of us. These major transitions (which we will announce soon) will require a huge amount of support and resources.

Will you give us your best offering on this day to give back…#GivingTuesday?

Luke 6:38 says,

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

To the measure that you give, it will be given back to you…to overflowing!

It’s A New Day

by Kathi Pelton

Some days are hard! For me, yesterday was one of those days. From the moment I woke up things just went wrong. To top it off, my emotions were all over the place and I should have stopped and taken a long walk or locked myself in my closet to pray. “Should’ve, could’ve, would’ve!” was my theme of the day.

But…today is a new day! If you woke up breathing this morning then you can be sure that it’s a new day, new beginning and new opportunity to thank God, smile and know that God’s faithfulness didn’t change during your “bad day!”

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!”” Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-24‬ ‭

As I went to bed last night, pondering my “list of woes” from the day, I decreed aloud, “You are forever faithful! Thank you for this day because Your faithfulness covers every part of it.”

Each day we begin in mercies afresh and surrounded by His absolute faithfulness. His mercy and faithfulness go with us throughout each moment. They are never absent from us— He is never absent from us. Our moods change, our circumstances change and people around us change; but He is constant! He never changes and never shifts in His ways and promises. His love endures forever.

So, if yesterday was not your favorite day then know this, “Today is a new day with mercies renewed!” Begin it with expectation of joy and singing songs of thanksgiving. The verses from the Book of Lamentations above (3:22-24) go on to say this,

“The Lord is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him.” Lamentations‬ ‭3:25‬ ‭

Enter today in complete dependency upon Him. Search for Him throughout your day; sometimes He is in clear sight but some days you have to find Him behind the distractions that come to block your view. Whatever was brought from your “bad day” into your “new day” commit it to the faithfulness of God and ask for His mercies to cover it. He is with you…great is His faithfulness!

Your Pause Has Purpose

by Kathi Pelton

We are in the midst of a great “crossover” time in the body of Christ. It is a time of great movement and leaving the familiar to enter the land of promise and inheritance.

Yet, for many, their crossover began but then was seemingly “stopped” right as they stepped forward. For my husband and I, we began crossing over and after a couple of steps we heard the words, “Now pause.” This was very confusing but we obeyed. Then the Lord took me to the Book of Joshua where I read this,

“Give this command to the priests who carry the Ark of the Covenant: ‘When you reach the banks of the Jordan River, take a few steps into the river and stop there.’”” Joshua‬ ‭3:8‬ ‭

“TAKE A FEW STEPS AND STOP THERE…pause!” Why the pause or stop? Because God sent the priests in first that carried His presence so that the river would dry up and the rest of the people can cross over first! What if your pause is so that by faith you can stand in the river and watch it part for others to pass through? Your pause and our pause may be to intercede, encourage and carry His presence for others to cross over.

This journey of faith can often cause us only to see our walk and our call but we have been called to make sure that the whole family crosses over and no one is left behind.

If you stepped out in faith to cross into the land of inheritance and after only a couple steps you found that you had to stop then maybe this word is for you and your pause has great purpose upon it! So stand with purpose and stand as one carrying His presence so that the multitudes can cross over ahead of you. Rejoice that you have been called as a priest and take joy that you can be one who is making a way for all to crossover.

“Meanwhile, the priests who were carrying the Ark of the Lord’s Covenant stood on dry ground in the middle of the riverbed as the people passed by. They waited there until the whole nation of Israel had crossed the Jordan on dry ground.” Joshua‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭

Stand! Hold the ground until all have crossed over.

Our ministry is in the midst of a “great crossover” into many new things. With this crossover our need for prayer and financial support is much greater. Will you stand with us in prayer and financial support? To give to our ministry go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

Release the Sound That Awakens the Dawn of the New Day

by Kathi Pelton

For many months now the Lord has been highlighting roosters to me. Whenever something is highlighted continually before me I make sure to not assume why or what He is speaking to me regarding the object or thing highlighted. So…I’ve been waiting, listening and watching for the revelation that aligns with God’s times and seasons.

This morning as I woke up I saw what was nothing short of an powerful and yet absurd vision. I saw believers across the United States of America standing or perched on the top of roofs, like roosters, and they were crowing loudly and without ceasing for the awakening of the dawn of the new day. They were not announcing the dawn but rather their sound was causing the dawn to awaken!

I somehow understood that the light of the new day was being delayed by a dark force of opposition that kept our nation (and the nations of the world) in the darkest part of the night (it is darkest right before the dawn). The Lord is calling believers across the nation to get upon their “rooftops” and release the sound that will pull in the light of dawn! It is a partnership with Heaven’s armies and the sons and daughters of the Creator of Heaven and Earth. We are to crow, to roar, to sing, to shout and to declare the establishment of the new day.

The enemy is always trying to change God’s appointed times and seasons but we can triumph over his delays by obeying what the Lord is asking us to do. We cannot be found sleeping in the dark of early morning (before the light appears) but we must rouse ourselves awake so that we can “awaken the dawn!” We can break through the delay and darkness to release the sound that brings forth the new day.

There is great power and authority in this sound. Again, it is not merely the announcing of a new day; for that has already been done by the prophet’s voices! This is the sound of God’s people rising up in His authority to break through the delay and establish the light of the new day. It will open the door to the Promised Land by parting the darkness like the Jordan River was parted when the children of Israel passed from the wilderness into Canaan! It is clearing the threshold to be passed over and making a way where there has been no way.

What is the new day? It is another great awakening! Not only for our nation but for the nations of the world! I believe we’ve already passed into the early hours of the new day but the light and dawn has been delayed by the enemy. Many are still found sleeping and unaware that the awakening has begun. It is time for those who are awake to release their sound and command the light of this new day to appear for all to see. It is time to sound the alarm that awakens the sleepers…it’s time to shout it from the rooftops!

“What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!” Matthew‬ ‭10:27‬

Jesus has come to awaken the dead! This will be a great awakening that brings the dead to life, the sick to health, the lost into family and light into darkness. So go to your rooftops and let your voice be heard! Shout it out so all will hear and let your sound break through the delay. The great awakening HAS begun!

Time To Cross Over

From the desk of Kathi Pelton

The Lord spoke to me and said,

“The threshold that you have been trying to cross over (yet you’ve been resisted and delayed) is too difficult for you. But now, extend the staff of your faith and watch me part the raging river that has stood between you and the land of promise I have spoken to you. I will part your Jordan and you will now pass over on dry land!”

This is not only for me…it is for many of you!

Do You Desire Blessings? Here Is The Key to Experiencing Abundant Life and Blessings

by Kathi Pelton

I remember the day as a young woman when I heard an audible voice that shouted over me, “Daughter, choose life!”

I had come from a very difficult childhood and as a young Christian I still had propensity towards self-harm and addiction. As I grew in my walk with Jesus as my Savior, I somehow continued to drag these things from my former life into my new life. My mind needed renewing and my choices needed to change. Though there was no “obviously outward blatant sin”; what was present was many agreements with death, with lies and with the identity that the enemy had scripted for my life. It was hidden sin that denied Christ’s redemption in my life.

When I finally realized that I could not thrive and grow in Christ with these agreements and behaviors I invited the Holy Spirit to transform me into who He created me to be.

One of the issues that comes with living in agreement with an identity scripted by the enemy is that it will cause you to compromise. Lies, self-hatred, victim mentalities and shame will lead you to drink from polluted cisterns. These deceptions must be fed and “nurtured” to remain in the life of the believer. I fed these lies through bulimia, negative self-talk, self-harm, shame, etc.

In the midst of my early years in Christ I would spend hours a day reading the scriptures aloud. I prayed constantly and only listened to worship music. I was battling for Jesus to have His way in my life but I had not yet “chosen life!” Often after spending hours in prayer and the Word I’d return to the idols of my past and end up throwing up all night and dwelling in thoughts of self hatred and shame. It was so confusing and defeating.

The day that I heard the words, “Daughter, choose life!” became my turnaround day. In the midst of choosing Jesus I was entertaining and believing things that were partnered with a spirit of death…death to true identity, destiny and blessings.

I knew that I had read the words, “Choose Life”, somewhere in the Bible so I searched it out. I found the words in Deuteronomy‬ ‭30:15-20,

“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.

This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

I had crossed into the land of promise when I asked Jesus into my life but I brought Egypt with me. I was living like a slave in the land of freedom. I was bowing down to the idols of fears, lies, addictions that were continually usurping my freedom and kept me a “captive in Canaan.”

Then the Lord led me the the verses in Deuteronomy 11:26-28 that say,

““Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the Lord your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before.”

‭‭I not only needed to choose life but I needed to choose blessings! It was time to believe that He is who He said He is and to believe that “He makes all things new!” It was time to let go of the spirit of death that was killing truth and my identity in Christ. It was time to stop cursing my life while worshiping the Lord. I could no longer continue to bow to the lies that had become more powerful than the voice of my Beloved.

The day that I made a choice for life and for blessing I intentionally put the curses and death under my feet and under the blood of Jesus (and all the attributes, actions and beliefs attached to them). I began to walk in truth which meant that I had to walk away from the habits and actions associated with death and curses. I no longer feasted at the table of the enemy but began to eat from the table of the Lord each day (refusing the constant invitation to return to the foods of shame that I had developed an appetite for). I began to obey the Lord and repented of mixture and idolatry (idolatry for me was to bow daily to something that was not Christ!)

Immediately my life began to change and transform. The blessings that opened before me were almost too many to comprehend. Doors opened before me, honor came like a flood upon me, favor surrounded me and blessings overtook me. Within two years of that moment of “choosing life” I found myself traveling internationally and walking in the identity that the Lord has intended for me…His original intent for my life was being lived out.

If you are struggling with not seeing the promised blessings upon your life; perhaps ask yourself if you are choosing life and blessings or if you have agreed with the lies associated with death and curses. If so, there is no shame but there is a choice that you need to make. Choose life! Choose blessings! Choose Christ and His original intent for your life. Cast down every lie that goes against the Word of God and begin to walk in truth. Truth will align your steps with obedience and will stop compromise. It will release life, favor and blessings that cannot be contained upon you!

Today is the day of life and of blessings!

He Is Mightier Than The Storm That Rages Against You

by Kathi Pelton

“But mightier than the violent raging of the seas, mightier than the breakers on the shore— the Lord above is mightier than these!” Psalms‬ ‭93:4‬ ‭

Has your life been impacted by violent winds and waves sent to knock you off of your feet? If so, know this…THE LORD IS MIGHTIER THAT THAT WHICH HAS BEEN SENT AGAINST YOU!

I felt my spirit rise up this morning as I declared, “I am arising in the might of my God!” My life was personally hit hard over the past six weeks with waves that sought to knock me over! But what they’ve done is knock me to my knees where I found the strength of my God!

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17

He is mighty to save you! You may feel knocked down but you are not knocked out! It’s time to shake off the disorienting and stunning hits you took and rise up “in His strength and might!”

This is your “Rocky” moment! The enemy is rejoicing and dancing in victory just a bit too soon. He thinks you’re down for the ten count but suddenly I hear the count go from “one, two, three, four, five…” to “five, four, three, two, one!” There is a reversal and I see God’s people rising up in victory. As the count is reversed the sound is like liver punches upon the enemy that is taking him down by the might of God. As you are rising up, your enemy is going down!

“…It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” Zechariah 4:6

The battle belongs to the Mighty One; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Suddenly you will rise and laughter and joy will fill you with renewed strength. There will be no trauma left, no mark left of what hit you because there is a supernatural reversal.

Get ready to rise and finish 2019 with a unprecedented victory! You may have been the underdog but because you have put your hope in the Lord, He is coming in might and power to save you and restore you.

If you are down today after a “knock down blow”, while you’re down begin to declare, “I will arise in the might of my God!” The listen as the ten count is reversed and the victory is yours.

—————————————————–

Stand up with us today and sow into your victory! We have been doing some extreme sowing because this is reversing the wave of lack sent by the enemy against many. Join us by sowing into the reversal of lack to abundance. Give wherever the Lord leads you. If you’d like to sow into our ministry go to: https://www.inscribeministries.com/

It’s Time To Ascend The Mountain!

By Kathi Pelton

“Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!” Exodus 20:20

The people of Israel had seen the smoke, the thunder and the display of the glory of God upon Mount Sinai from a distance and they became afraid. They were sure that if God spoke to them directly (face to face) that they would surely die. So, they sent Moses as a mediator to go before the Lord (for he understood the holiness and the grace of his God). Yet, their “fear” didn’t stop them from building a golden calf soon after and dancing around it; proclaiming it as the god that delivered them from Egypt.

Why am I sharing this verse and story? I sense that as we enter 2020 we will do so with a remnant of the church having come into a new “fear of the Lord” that purified us and delivered us from areas of defilement. In 2020 we will see many more come into this and it will bring a massive deliverance from sins and idolatries that have kept many separated from putting God first. I also believe that it will be an era where we no longer look to one man or a even a few “gifted men and women” to ascend the mountain of God and hear for us. God has invited His people to ascend the mountain of the Lord together so that we each hear directly from Him in face to face encounters.

Jesus is the mediator that opened the way for all to enter in by the grace provided by His death on the cross. The penalty for sin was paid and we can draw near and ascend the mountain of the Lord without fear of death but rather in the fear of the Lord.

The glory of the Lord is about to be displayed in ways that we have not seen before (only read about). Those that understand that Jesus is our mediator will not run from these glorious displays but rather run to them. It will become normal for God’s people to ascend the mountain and receive instructions, strategies and intimate encounters with Him.

The other day I was having a conversation about the account in Exodus 24 when Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain and dined with God. Here is that story,

“Then Moses, Aaron, Nadab, Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel climbed up the mountain. There they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there seemed to be a surface of brilliant blue lapis lazuli, as clear as the sky itself. And though these nobles of Israel gazed upon God, he did not destroy them. In fact, they ate a covenant meal, eating and drinking in his presence!”
‭‭Exodus‬ ‭24:9-11‬ ‭

I sense that God is blessing His people to come up in corporate mountain top experiences where we eat a “covenant meal” in His presence together. There He will reveal His glory and we will have our hunger filled and our thirst satisfied in glorious ways.

2020 will bring about displays of the tangible glory of the Lord that will create a renewed fear of the Lord that is both reverently holy and yet full of grace. Jesus is our mediator as we ascend the mountain where we will meet with Him face to face. He is longing to hide us in His glory in order to speak directly to His people.

The enemy cannot come into the glory where God will hide us as He speaks mysteries and strategies in the days ahead. His voice will be heard in corporate gatherings in ways that we have not seen before. His smoke will hide us as He meets face to face with His people. His glory will tabernacle us in these holy moments. The fear of the Lord will deliver many from sin in these times. Oneness, first with God and then with one another, according to Jesus prayer in John 17:20-23,

““I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”
‭‭

This glory that we will experience, where the mysteries of God are revealed, will usher us into a wisdom “beyond our years.” This wisdom of God will bring us into exponential growth and maturity beyond our ability and years.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10

God is inviting His people to ascend the mountain of God so that He can speak directly with us. Let’s not send a man or a mediator because the true Mediator has come and made a way to enter in through His blood.

It’s time to ascend!

You Are Being Lifted Out Of The Pit

By Kathi Pelton

I saw a vision this morning of the great cloud of witnesses cheering and rejoicing as angel armies broke through enemy resistance lines and arrived to lift up believers out of deep pits that they’d been held down in. I knew this had been a prolonged battle but the breakthrough had come!

As I saw these angels pulling God’s people up from these deep pits they were rising from them fully dressed in royal armor that marked them with the”King’s Seal of Authority”. They were not weakened by the time in the pit but they were full of spiritual health, purity, authority and wore His faithfulness like full body armor. Their time in the pit had made them stronger and full of light and passion for their God!

Lift up your arms because angels are now arriving to pull you up. You are arising from the deep, dark place with honor, favor and new authority. What the enemy meant for evil will now become your upgrade!
