Joey LeTourneau: "A Vision of the Family Room in Our Father's House"

Joey LeTourneau
Sep 24, 2017

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

This is quite an encounter that Joey LeTourneau recently had about the "Father's house." As I read through it, I thought of that popular song, "Big House" by Audio Adrenaline, which is all about the Father's house.

This truly is like reading a mini-storybook that will certainly pique your interest throughout.

I'm not going to give much away, but I will share this part of Joey's encounter with you:

I stepped from the hardwood entryway in front of the grandfather clock, through the archway, and onto the carpet. Where had they all come from? Tribe, tongue, nation—everyone was here! Standing, sitting, kneeling, and even playing! Some were shouting, others whispering, more were laughing, singing, and plenty were praying and interceding.

That's right...every nation, tribe and tongue are in the Father's house...and YOU get to invite them in.

Enjoy this word and know that the harvest through you is at hand. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be on in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me." (John 17:20-21)

God's family structure is where we come together in such an unlikely and uncommon form of unity, overcoming the division of the old structure, and restoring an identity-laden, diversity-celebrated family. We are His sons and daughters who each reveal the Father differently and becoming one with the life of the Son as He prayed in John 17—that the world may believe.

Family is a kingdom form of government we are bringing from Heaven to earth, from the Father's heart to yours. There is a reason that "family" has become such a broken, painful thing for so many people—because the enemy wants us to take earth's broken version of family and attribute it to the Father as if that brokenness came from Him.

"Don't just tell them the Son made room for them in the house. Show them. Let them feel it!"

When we learn God's true heart for family as the good Father that He is and through the family structure He has set in place, we will rebuild the house that has been divided on earth with the one He has always been constructing from Heaven. God's eternal model for family is the blueprint the world needs right now—and it's the blueprint that the Body's heart needs as well.

Right now, it's easy to look around and see the cracks flowing through the floors and walls of an old structure. The good news is—that's not the house our Father is building anymore. There's a much more glorious family house being rebuilt from the inside out—from the DNA of a Father, His Son, the spirit of adoption and His growing family. As soon as we recognize the true house He is building, then we will know how to bring it to life for the world around us to experience as well.

"Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the end of the earth for Your possession." (Psalm 2:8)

The following is a vision and journey the Lord led me into, experiencing part of God's potential "family room" coming to life.

A Vision of the Family Room

I stepped from the hardwood entryway in front of the grandfather clock, through the archway, and onto the carpet. Where had they all come from? Tribe, tongue, nation—everyone was here! Standing, sitting, kneeling, and even playing! Some were shouting, others whispering, more were laughing, singing, and plenty were praying and interceding.

"This is the family room," my host and guide, Angelo, clarified (Angelo was an angel who took me on a tour of the Father's house in my encounter). "In here the nations are found together every day in perfect unity, in more ways than you could imagine. All aspects of family context happen in this room—together!" (Photo via Flickr)

"This room is not unlike the throne room of Heaven," Angelo continued, "Where every tribe, tongue and nation will worship the Father together for eternity. The same Spirit is here."

Just as he said that, a Frisbee whizzed right by my nose. "Quite a game they've got going there," I interjected.

"Oh yes, joy and fun are one of the most important ways to come together as a family to worship the Father."

I looked over to see a group from multiple nations all gathered around an old, but in-tune piano. A board game of world expansion was going on in the corner, though I suspected there wasn't really an end to the room but that the corner was merely my understanding of it.

A remote control plane dodged the fan over the coffee table as it flew through the air. Oh, and the smell of coffee coming from that table, wow! From now on, I want coffee the way Dad makes it because whatever was coming out of those mugs smelled straight from Heaven.

Everywhere I looked around the room the worldwide goodness of God was palatable. I loved seeing the kids all piled together—not separated by country or denominational lines—laughing away on the couch as they watched cartoons.

I saw a group from one culture teaching another group to dance. People were passing and sharing favorite snacks with anyone around them, and others gathered interceding for theirs or another nation. Again, as I had been learning throughout this experience it wasn't necessarily about inclusion, but belonging. Anyone had an invite, but unfortunately not everyone was here.

Moving this Unity into the World

"Family is a kingdom form of government we are bringing from Heaven to earth, from the Father's heart to yours."

I started thinking more about what I had wondered regarding the corner of the room. Does the room end there? How do we let the world feel this? How do we take what is happening in this room—this kind of love, joy and unity, and make it felt outside these walls?

Angelo came over as I was staring into the corner and said, "Wondering if they're real?"

"What, the walls?" I responded acting like he hadn't seen my curiosity.

"Yes, the walls. Are they real?" Angelo asked me directly this time.

"I, I don't know..." I said, shrugging my shoulders. "That's what I'm trying to figure out."

"Don't worry," he said. "They're not. People are usually the one's who build walls, not God. It's usually your limits, understanding, perspective—or lack thereof—that creates walls. The Father's nature is the ceiling, and it is limitless. It will stretch out as far as you will allow the walls to go. In that, part of His nature is truth, so it doesn't stretch according to your ways, but His. In a sense, you are the walls and He is the ceiling or roof. As far as you will take these walls to love the world like family, the more His house can grow.

"The atmosphere you sense in this room is another part of the Father's nature that shouldn't be reserved within any building or program but carried out into the streets, the offices and the most unlikely places. That's why you have to taste it in this manner, so you know the spirit of family that you can show to many more.

"Don't just tell them the Son made room for them in the house. Show them. Let them feel it! The Father is not so much looking for you to build Him a house like this, but He is wanting to make you into this kind of house, this kind of room, where people of all tongues, tribes and nations can experience what eternity is all about—His family restored and together!"

I kept looking around the room, but now with my imagination lifting off the limits and walls that my eyes and understanding had built. I could see so much more. Those in the room when I first got there—though many—paled in comparison to the multitude of people, to the abundance of life, and the fullness of joy that was happening here right now.

It wasn't just that I needed to learn to see the world as family; I had to get beyond my own walls of how I built His house to do so. The more He re-modeled my perspective, the more He made me personally into a house. The expansion of the Father's family house began with that same kind of expansion within me.

"Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; do not spare. Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited." (Isaiah 54:2-3) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
