From the desk of Steve Shultz:
There are many Biblical accounts of men and women who transformed society, and cites and nations in their day. Take Nehemiah, Deborah, King David, and Esther to name just a few.
As usual, Bob Hartley shares some incredible visions of a hope reformation that is upon us:
"Bob saw radiant cities and nations on the earth that had invited Him in, where the atmosphere of these cities and nations were filled with His presence and His glory; where the cultures of these spheres and arenas of these cities had been radically transformed..."
So where are you called to?
Be blessed and enjoy this word by Bob Hartley.

"My Church will Bring Forth True Reformation, the Revealing of My Heart and My Ways for Cities and Nations"
The Following word from Bob Hartley was scribed by Francis Low:
Radiant, Redeemed Cities and Nations and Hope Reformers
God has repeatedly revealed to Bob the vision of radiant cities and nations, and hope reformers who were on a hill looking at these cities and nations, which had been transformed. These hope reformers had the wisdom to worship Him for Who He really is and had the strength and confidence not to be changed by the atmosphere and culture of a city or nation; but instead were able to effect transformative change to the atmosphere and culture of cities and nations.
Bob saw radiant cities and nations on the earth that had invited Him in, where the atmosphere of these cities and nations were filled with His presence and His glory; where the cultures of these spheres and arenas of these cities had been radically transformed, and the evil mist of despair, hopelessness, fear, and cynicism in these cities had been obliterated; and instead there was radiant hope, health, healing, joy, abundance of peace and truth, creativity, prosperity, and a place where good things thrived and flourished.
And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations. Isaiah 61:4
For the past seventeen years, God gave Bob recurring dreams where Bob would see Jesus coming out of cities, running up to him, and telling him that these cities would not let Him help them. Jesus was saddened by this and said to Bob, "I really want to help them and give them My gifts," but they did not know how He was to be invited in.
Bob was perplexed by these dreams and did not really know how to respond to the Lord. He then saw over Jesus' shoulder cities which looked like Auschwitz villages; although functioning, they were severely emaciated and depleted in hope.
But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Matthew 9:36
These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. Matthew 15:8
About two months ago, while Bob was visiting Australia and New Zealand, he had an open vision; however, this time in this open vision, when Jesus ran up to Bob, the Lord was like a young child with great joy exploding from Him, and He said to Bob with great excitement, "They are NOW receiving Me and My gifts."
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17
Bob then looked over Jesus' shoulder, and this time he saw beautiful and radiant cities which were filled with the glory of Heaven. It was absolutely stunning! These cities were no longer desolate places or wastelands but are now His habitation, His heart and joy.
Inviting Jesus in NOW
Jesus said to Bob, "It is NOW that many nations and cities will invite Me in, and they will get their true identity in Me, and Jeremiah 33:9-11 will be fulfilled."
"Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it."
Thus says the LORD: "Again there shall be heard in this place – of which you say, 'It is desolate, without man and without beast' – in the cities of Judah, in the streets of Jerusalem that are desolate, without man and without inhabitant and without beast, the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who will say:
"'Praise the LORD of hosts, for the LORD is good, for His mercy endures forever' – and of those who will bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause the captives of the land to return as at the first," says the LORD. Jeremiah 33:9-11
Bob saw many hope reformers from nations who are now responding to the Lord appropriately. They are now inviting Him into their cities and nations by asking for God Himself to come and abide with them (see John 1:38-39).
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people He has chosen as His own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
"I Have an Awesome Variety of Gifts"
"How is this going to happen?" Bob asked Jesus. Jesus replied, "I am going to give them gifts, which are like building kits and a blueprint for the Church to be the Kingdom Church. My Church will bring forth true reformation, the revealing of My Heart and My Ways for cities and nations."
And when the queen of Sheba had seen all the wisdom of Solomon, the house that he had built, the food on his table, the seating of his servants, the service of his waiters and their apparel, his cupbearers, and his entryway by which he went up to the house of the LORD, there was no more spirit in her. 1 Kings 10:4-5
Then I arose in the night, I and a few men with me; I told no one what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem; nor was there any animal with me, except the one on which I rode. Nehemiah 2:12
Jesus then said to Bob, "I have an awesome variety of gifts."
For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established. Romans 1:11
The LORD has opened His armory, and has brought out the weapons of His indignation; for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. Jeremiah 50:25
Through these gifts, the Lord will move the Church from where she is presently at to a Kingdom reformational place. Jesus said He will give His shepherds these divine building kits and they will understand how to release Kingdom callings, messages, and feedings that are appropriate for this hour. There will be unique worship and offerings to God in the gates in the city, where hope reformers will be released to bring God's Presence, His heart, and His ways into cities and nations at this time (see Micah 4:1-2).
It is Time for Hope Reformers to Partner with God
Here in this recent encounter, the Lord turned Bob's eyes toward a number of nations. What the Lord revealed to Bob was so wonderful and glorious it took Bob's breath away! The Lord showed Bob a number of nations that are now inviting Jesus in, and that He was now going to reveal His specific callings and identities for these nations in accordance with the counsel of His heart.
Bob was able to share this at the recent Open Heavens conference at Bethel in Redding, California, where representatives from approximately 40 nations were present. The Lord graciously and powerfully confirmed to many at this conference His callings for these nations and to the people who were called to help bring forth radiant, hope-filled cities in nations.

These are some of the nations Bob saw:
– Affectionate Australia!
– Courageous China, a nation that will see God as King!
– Endearing Egypt!
– Faithful France!
– Intimate Italy!
– Intentful Iran!
– Infectious India!
– Irresistible Indonesia!
– Loving Lebanon!
– Nations of Exciting Europe!
– Near Norway!
– Sensitive Spain!
– Soaring Scotland!
– Sweet Syria!
– Tender Turkey!
– United in God, the United States of America!
– Zealous Zimbabwe!
It is time for hope reformers to partner with God by coming into agreement and alignment with the Lord of the nations!
