HIS HEARTS DESIRE ROOM

February 2019, we begin again the Journey of the Yellow House. Some of you will be new to this Journey, and for those that have journeyed before there will be new and deeper depths to experience with Jesus for you.  Each month we will invite you to explore with Jesus one room of the twelve rooms. You will encounter and adore the “12 Forgotten Faces of God for Hope Reformers”. You will experience true and lasting encounters with Jesus. He will touch and heal every area of your life making you completely whole. This journey through the Yellow House produces Hope Reformers for God in every realm of society, spreading across the entire planet earth.

The Entrance

I was stunned and overwhelmed by His loving invitation to enter into the Yellow House. As I thought of a healing process, I didn't want to go there. There were things I didn't want to face and I didn't want to rehash the traumas and all my weaknesses. He said, “First, I comfort you, then I counsel you and guide into glory. This process of healing and wholeness will never come through hard, external modification models. It will come through knowing that you’re celebrated, loved, and cared for. When you know I’m holding your hand, you can walk with Me through this process. It won’t be misery; it will be play therapy.”

His Hearts Desire Room

In the first room of the Yellow House our hearts are positioned rightly for the journey ahead. The purpose of this room is to love, value, appreciate and adore the heart of Jesus. In this room, we learn how to love God well and listen to what is on His Heart. We spend time with Him as a friend and begin to love what He loves by taking the time to draw near and listen. Listening to someone's heart is one of the greatest acts of love, and this is what we get to do with God in this room.

As Bob walked into room, he heard himself say to Jesus “This is the room where I receive the greatest treasure which I have desired more than anything … your heart,” Jesus was so touched and moved by this desire, and Bob knew that if he always stayed in that place he would never give up for the sake of Gods heart.

You may be surprised to what he says to you. (John 3:29) Father have your way as you lead us into this room, help us to come out of this room, renewed, aware of your heart and tuned to hear your voice when you speak on matters of your heart.

2019 The Year of the Choice ~ Look up and behold the God of All Life!

“Last year in 2018 many of us took some major hits and literally were knocked to the ground. The good thing about being flat on your back . . . it’s the perfect position to look up! When life’s trials and situations bombard us, let’s choose to LOOK UP in 2019 ~ The Year of the Choice. Let’s look up into the Beautiful Face of our “God of All Life” and be bombarded by His Love and drenched in His Presence!”
Bounce-Back/Bountiful-Blessings!
Teri Johnson-Voice of Hope Team

In 2019 The Year of the Choice, we get to choose to look up and see God. In the Yellow House ~ His Heart's Desire Room, there is nothing more we want than to see what God sees and feels. Father, let this be the place we get revelation of who you are, what you feel towards us. We ask for understanding of how to live our lives in sync with Your Heart.

 

Inside the Yellow House “His Heart's Desire Room” is where we behold & adore His Face as: “Our God of All Life”. There are 7 mountains of society that our God of All Life wants to build on with us .  .  .

  1. King of All
  2. Government
  3. Family
  4. Business
  5. Media & Arts
  6. Education
  7. Church

These areas are where He wants to give us wisdom and teach us to encounter Him in all we do.

Practical Application for you:

Take a moment and ask the Lord: “What is one area in my life that you want to speak to me about?” Ask Him for wisdom and what can be done to build upon this mountain?

Bob Hartley’s Wonderful Enlightening Story for Hope in Cities and Nations

The Prophetic Call

You and your city are being called to the Hope Room of “Benevolence for Cities & Nations”.

One city can touch the earth in specific geographical areas.

Here are some examples:

  • Be like Ephesuswhen they touched all of Asia with the rooms of their house. (Acts 19)
  • Be a place like “Quasi Subantu” (another story in itself); to be a City of God’s Presence (Psalm 107 / Psalm 24)
  • Be Treasure Bringers! (Zechariah 12:8 – Big mantles)
  • Be a place where the “Joseph’s” become “Barnabas”.

 Bob's Wonderful Enlightening Story of The Stairwell in Fort Collins, CO   (Part One)

“Back in 1983, I asked the Lord what were His heart’s desires.  The Lord spoke to me about His desire to see His Name vindicated, as in Ezekiel 36:23.  His answer was given to me in an open vision while seated in a stairwell. It is God’s desire to see cities and nations come forth that would love Him well.” (Deuteronomy 6 / Isaiah 36-39)

“I met Jesus in Fort Collins, Colorado stairwell.  I sat down in that I staircase and I cried as I got a picture directly from the Heart of Jesus of many cities, nations, businesses, and families that would be equipped to be “Builders of Hope” and saw them begin to build. I saw how they would help discover the Face of God and all the city saw a different distinctive of Hope come forth in their city.  I realized that I was in a transition.  I was being called to a place of Hope; a place of hope-respect, hope-actions, hope-attitudes, and hope-activities that would allow me to be able to do ‘heavy lifting’ and to be a ‘force of hope’ for cities and nations.

In this vision, I saw specific cities & nations of the earth that were to love Jesus well. I saw many “City Builders”, who were to sing the “Song of Wisdom & Hope” in every arena of life and rebuild cities that love God well.  And I knew that I was to hear God’s heart for (along with others) to help equip City Builders of Hope with Advance Tools. I was to help them succeed in rebuilding their cities while helping them discover the “12 Forgotten Faces of God” for Hope Reformers to behold and adore. This Hope Reformers would launch God’s Hope Reformation that would bring a lasting transformation that would cover the entire earth with God’s Goodness for His Glory. (Psalm 24)

God showed Bob: 5 Ways to have Hope in Cities & Nations

1)        Hope in God (Benevolence)

2)        Hope in People (Reformers)

3)        Hope in the Next Generation

4)        Hope in Prayer

5)        Hope in Cities & Nations

“I saw all types of rebuilt cities!  I had to have ‘Hope in God for Cities and Nations’! This is the 1st Step in the Hope Room.  We must see from the right place! 2019 is the Year of Choice. It’s is time to choose to look up, to look forward from heaven and outward at God!

Bob's Wonderful Enlightening Story of The Stairwell in Fort Collins, CO   (Part Three) 

In order to see Cities and Nations filled with God's Hope,  We must “see” from the Right Perspective!

4 Hope Reformation Vision Steps

  1. It's time to look upward (from heaven) and outward to God.  It's a necessary time to look and see the way He sees, like I saw in the stairwell.  We must go outside  the ‘ministry emphasis room’ and go into the ‘living life room’ (educational room).  I saw Hope for the children, hope for the poor, hope for all the institutions in life (political, educational, social, financial, etc) to be established on Righteousness and Hope.
  2. It's time to look to God and collaborate with Him. I saw hope for prayer (the ability to communicate with God everyday in the city) and hear His heart for the city.
  3. It's time to look for God's Face and Nature. I was focusing on things that God ‘wasn’t’.  But then I saw Hope for a Generosity and Benevolence movement rising up and Cities and Nations  versus what was wrong and moving away from fear and greed.
  4. It's time to see & set the “dominoes” in place.  This is how cities and nations will be rebuilt in the days to come. It will take some work to understand and believe.  I know for me that I desire for this time to be more than a message, but a time where HOPE is imparted into our hearts.

 

The Yellow House / The 5 Objections of Moses

In 2019 The Year of the Choice we have the opportunity to choose life, the fulfilling abundant life of wholeness and healing that God has for us. This abundant life is the fruit of the Yellow House Journey.

Like Moses, Bob had objections (when invited to embark on The Yellow House Journey).  

Objection #1 Moses to God: “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?”

Jesus to Bob: “Every time Moses objected, I had an answer for him, and the essence of my response was that I would be with him and My power would be working through him. Just as I was with Moses, I will be with you on this Yellow House Journey.”

Objection #2: Moses was afraid and felt disqualified to go to Pharaoh.

In 2019 The Year of the Choice, you can choose Abundant Life, the fruit of the Yellow House Journey. Like Moses, Bob had 5 Objections when Jesus invited him to embark on The Yellow House Journey.

Jesus to Bob: “It does not matter whether you feel qualified or not. I am who I am and when I say I will be with you, there is nothing to fear.”

Objection #3 Moses: “What if they won't believe me?”

Jesus to Bob : “I will be with you; my power will be working through you and it does not matter whether you feel qualified or not.”

Practical Application for you:

Sit with the Lord & ask Him to highlight your objections to moving forward with Him. Then ask the Lord to let you know how He has overcome your objections. Then move forward with Jesus!

Objection #4 Moses: “Lord, I’m not very good with words and I get tongue-tied and my words get tangled!”

Jesus to Bob: “I am who I am and when I say I will be with you, there is nothing to fear. I am able and I am more than enough.”

Objection #5 Moses:  “Please! Send anyone else!”

Jesus to Bob: “I am who I am and when I say I will be with you, there is nothing to fear.”

OUR DECLARATIVE PRAYER OVER YOU:

May you become like Moses where you won’t go anywhere without His Heart. May you be men and women after Him, who stir themselves to take hold of God and vindicate the greatness of His Holy Name in the cities and nations.

God is so overwhelmed by your love!

The Transition from His Heart's Desire Room to The Love & Forgiveness Room

His Hearts Desire Room leads to the Love & Forgiveness Room because God's Hope Reformers will walk a path that is unfamiliar to others. This new path creates many opportunities for misunderstanding. You will need to be very decisive about living in Love and Forgiveness from the start of the Journey to prevent bitterness from taking root within you.
