From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This latest word from Kathi Pelton about her 10:10 encounter is so encouraging.
Through this brief encounter with the Lord a few years ago, she shares that He began speaking to her about ABUNDANT LIFE. I was greatly encouraged as I read:
God desires to free you from the expectation of living with a thief, and cause you to grow in the abundant life with Jesus, the Root of Jesse, as your source.
Kathi shares some excellent insight in this word that deals with a ROOT of expecting the "thief." Please forward this one to all your friends as I know...God is wanting us all to receive ABUNDANT LIFE! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"A 10:10 Moment - Choose Life!"
For the past three years, I have been having the Holy Spirit show me a clock with the numbers "10:10" upon it.
It began one October night in a parking lot as I waited for my husband to grab some items in the grocery store (after a long drive home from an international trip, followed by speaking at a conference).
I was too exhausted to walk the aisles so I remained in our car. As soon as Jeff stepped out of the car, I was taken by the Spirit into a vision where I was shown a calendar with 10:10 on it and told that it was our 10:10 moment. It was a mysterious vision that only lasted a few minutes but it was as if the numbers 10:10 were branded upon my spirit.
When I came out of this vision, I was disoriented and was sure that the date was 10/10 (October 10th), but as I got my bearings I realized that it was actually October 20th on the day I had the vision. Jeff arrived back at the car right after this experience, and when I told him that something unusual happened while he was in the store, he told me as he walked across the parking lot, the Spirit told him that God was going to show me something significant while he shopped.
"God desires to free you from the expectation of living with a thief, and cause you to grow in the abundant life with Jesus, the Root of Jesse, as your source."
This short experience was truly branded upon me. The treasure hunt for its meaning began. What was our "10:10 moment"? My sense was that it would unfold through time and revelation.
There were two Scriptures immediately highlighted to me regarding the 10:10. One was the familiar and obvious verse out of John 10:10, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." The less obvious verse that was given to me comes from Matthew 10:10, "Don't carry a traveler's bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick. Don't hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve to be fed."
Since we traveled often and lived by faith, the Matthew 10:10 verse was a comfort and confirmation to us to continue following His steps in faith, knowing that He would provide. It was a personal message to us. But the John 10:10 message has been both personal and corporate.
Since that night in October 2014, we have been seeing the redemption of all that the enemy came to steal, kill, and destroy in our lives. God's "moments" are rarely a moment as we understand it, but more like a period of time. As a prophetic person I often will live something out on a personal level that will later be manifested on a corporate level. I sense that a corporate 10:10 moment has come, and with it great and abundant life will be restored. (Photo via Flickr)
Recently, I woke up with two words ringing in my spirit. They were:
These are familiar words to me as they were words that many years ago saved my life. My young life had what I would call a "taproot of death" within it. When things would get hard I'd truly wanted to die. It was deception from the enemy, promising relief and escape, but really wanting to steal the truth of God as my helper and the One who gives abundant life to me.
As a child with a difficult home life, I had learned to escape in my soul to this lie of comfort, which opened the door to the spirit of death that wanted to steal and destroy my life. It became my "comforter" rather than the Holy Spirit being my Comforter (I didn't know the Lord at this time).
This was carried into my life as an adult and even as a Christian. When times got hard I would call on God first, but then quickly resort to this deceptive place of false comfort. Eventually, my "escape" led me into addiction.
In His mercy, the Lord took me through a three-year period where He began removing this taproot of death from my life. It was the greatest war that I ever experienced as the enemy sought to keep this root secured in my life. One day, during the time of the fiercest fighting in this battle, the Lord loudly spoke to my spirit,
"Kathi, CHOOSE LIFE!"
The verse from Deuteronomy 30:19-20 called out to me, "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."
In a climactic and intense moment, I left the threshold of death and walked over the threshold of abundant life. As I did this the root was cut off and my entire life changed. It was a complete reversal and I began to experience life and love in ways that I never dreamed possible. It was truly an Ephesians 3:20 experience!
"I sense that a corporate 10:10 moment has come, and with it great and abundant life will be restored."
I believe that there are some of you who are reading this article right now that realize God has been after this taproot of death. He has been in the process of removing the roots that have formed from this taproot, and now it is time to pull out the main root which is death. God desires to free you from the expectation of living with a thief, and cause you to grow in the abundant life with Jesus, the Root of Jesse, as your source.
This is your 10:10 moment, where the root cause of your pain is removed. The root of the thief will be removed and the Root of Jesse will replace it.
"And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; For the Gentiles shall seek Him, And His resting place shall be glorious."
Your 10:10 moment of seeing the thief removed will secure the 11:10 life of seeing the Root of Jesse established and enthroned in your life. It will give you rest and be glorious! You will become a glorious resting place for Him as well.
Today the Lord is calling for you to, "Choose Life!" Agree that every alignment with death will be removed by His precious Spirit that gives life. Allow every word that speaks death to be silenced, every belief that expects robbery to be removed, and every false comfort to be replaced by the true Comforter. He desires the latter part of John 10:10 for you:
"...I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." (Photo via Vimeo)
We have been reborn, taken from a death sentence into the grace that gives life. Death must go and the thief cast out. Ask the Spirit for the Root of Jesse to be planted as the taproot in your heart and life.
As I have been writing this article, the Lord keeps saying that this is a 360 degree adjustment in your life; a full rotation, reversal, and turnaround. This is the season of divine turn around. I believe your 360 rotation from death to life has just begun and now you can move in this month of July full of life, rest, and abundance.
This is the time of completion for many of you. Your full rotation is upon you as you choose life. Justice will be poured out upon your life for all that death has stolen from you.
