His Heart's Desire Room- Corner 4-
His Desire for Cities & Nations
In the second corner of His Heart's Desire Room is a heavenly perspective of Hope in Cities and Nations. Jesus challenges us: “Get well, get whole, and be filled with Hope. This is the Yellow House process.” Look up and see from the perspective of the King of All Nations.
“You shall no longer be termed Forsaken,
Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate;
But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah;
For the LORD delights in you, And your land shall be married.”
God sees cities and nations as His intimate family. He desires them to live in radiant hope rather than under misery clouds. His heart is burning with desire to see this for His people.
“Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples;
But the LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you.
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.”
It's time for Hope-Filled Reforming Christianity!
Over the years, God has blessed me with a series of visitations that revealed His jealous and hope-filled heart of love for His people and plan. He is moving from the world seeing Him as weak and miserable to strong and powerful, according to this passage:
“The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war He stirs up His zeal; He cries out,
He shouts aloud, He shows Himself mighty against His foes.”
God has a zeal to displace what has hurt His children. He has called it “misery Christianity.” God hates Misery Christianity because it is not His way. And misery has never changed a thing for better.
He wants to usher in a Hope-Filled Reforming Christianity that takes the world by storm the same way that Martin Luther did when he re-announced salvation through faith. In this second reformation God will activate and empower 50 million Hope Reformers to usher whole cities and nations into great blessings and manifestations of the Kingdom of God in every arena of life.
We are here to trumpet that message and provide a pathway of seeing, hearing, praying, and acting that enables the hopeful heart of God to come forth!
The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary…
THE REFORMATION ROOM
On a number of occasions, I have been taken in the Spirit into a “reformation room.” Situated within is a table of communion where the Lord reveals His manifold faces and nourishes us with the bread of His presence.
In one encounter in particular, I was seated at the corner of the table on the Lord's right side. He strongly corrected us concerning speaking from areas where we were weary, wounded, disappointed, or hopeless. The Lord said, “Stop it! Wait and listen again until you get the hope, the love, and see My solution.” He was in pain over this and desired to help us. (There is more of this vision in the Encounters section below.)
Another time God said, "There is an epic battle presently raging over Who I am.” Then He spoke from Psalm 67 that He is going to open up His Face and His ways so that He will be seen and known--not only among His people, but also among whole cities, and even nations, that will open their gates to Him. I saw specific nations invite Him, with His gifts and building plan, into their cities. These cities will become radiant with joy and pulsate with the presence of God. They will receive and enjoy many breakthroughs in every area of life. Jesus is already thrilled that many people and places are welcoming Him to bless and lead them.
The Lord said that each year, He will progressively reveal facets of His nature to us that will help us progress in His purposes.
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face to shine upon us,
that Your ways may be known on earth, Your saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise you!
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,
for You judge the peoples with equity and guide the nations upon earth.
Let the peoples praise You, O God; let all the peoples praise You!
The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear Him!
Can you believe for God's Hope cities and nations to arise and shine, even in the midst of facing many challenges? Pray for a vision of God's heart's desire for the family groups He has planted. Allow the Lord to show you times when you chose to see things through the eyes of hopelessness, or talk about them in that way to others.
Then allow Him to proclaim in strength, "I am your Victorious Warrior." Let Him make known to you the One who is strong in battle and mighty to save. He says, "You have a choice to ‘resurrect' this old enemy, but it is not My plan.” Let Him show you a new way to think about each of those things you saw before. Ask Him what His new name would be to describe the redeemed way of a person you love, or the city/nation where you live.
