4 And you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord: “If you will not listen to Me, to walk in My law which I have set before you, 5 to heed the words of My servants the prophets whom I sent to you, both rising up early and sending them (but you have not heeded), 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.” ’ ” Jeremiah 26

"In the beginning there was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. And then man was given a place to reside then. But temptation entered into his heart then, and he fell away from what was originally planned for him. And all through those years afterwards, my Spirit was poured out upon a select few. Men moved kingdoms, tore down temples, and were saved from the lion's den. I spoke to some and they prophesied about what was to come. They warned my people Israel to throw away their idols of stone, and yet many would not listen to them. And then many years later, I sent them my Son, who came in the form of a humble servant. But they chose to cast Him away. They spat on Him and mocked Him, and jeered at Him while He carried the cross to Golgotha. And He died on that cross for all of humanity. And now two thousand years later, I have sent my prophets again. They have warned you repeatedly about what is to come. They have spent long hours in my presence listening to my voice, and then giving my word to the people. But the same thing has happened again. For now, many mock those who give these words. They say, 'Where is the One who was promised to come?' They say, 'Our nation and our land is great, who would come to destroy it?' So, I have sent you my Son; I have sent you my prophets; and how else am I to warn you? You will be left to your own devices on that day. You will find out that the arm of man will not save you. You will find out that you are a mere ant in the face of the horrendous things that are coming. But if you had only listened to Me. Perhaps then you would have been saved from what is to come. "

Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind;2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about. Jeremiah 51

3 The floods have lifted up, O Lord, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. Psalm 93
"The ocean waves are lapping against the shore. They come one-by-one, in a series of demonstrations. They come surging against the shore. And I tell you that there will be a series of demonstrations in the earth, just like these demonstrations of the waves as they come pouring against the shore.

For there is an ebb and flow of the ocean. It has a depth that has not been discovered by man yet, and yet the deepest ocean can't compare to the great love that I have for you. That great love was given to you as my Son died on the cross for you. He gave His life for you, as a ransom for sin.

And yet, the time is coming, and yea, it is right at your doors, when the great darkness will spread across your nation. It will spread its dark canopy across the land. Will you be ready when trouble comes? Will you look out across the land knowing that I will protect you from these things?

But those who choose to ignore my warnings will be caught-up in the deep waves of the ocean. For just as those waves come lapping against the shore, they will one day soon, destroy the coastal areas of your land. Gone will be the great cities of your land. Gone, will be New York City. Gone will be all of those cities south of there along the coast. For the waves will come spreading their great foam, devastating the land there for hundreds of miles inland. And then when this onslaught is finished, another great wave will hit your west coast. Gone will be the entire state of California. Gone will be most of Oregon. And what remains on that day, will be just a fragment of what the land looked like before.

I have warned you time after time. I have sent my warnings through my prophets, and yet many of you have chosen to ignore their warnings. But it is not too late to come to Me. Choose this day who you would believe in. "

(This prophetic word echoes another one from earlier this year.
15 Thus saith the Lord; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, and bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they were not. Jeremiah 31

"My son, tell the people that they have gone the way of Cain. For murder and violence is seen on every street corner. The bloodshed has reached my throne, and it is flowing throughout the cities of the land.

For it is in the hearts of some to murder their brother. It is in their heart to maim and destroy. I tell you that the blood will flow in the streets and it will reach such a level that it will fill-up the gutters.

From the beginning it was in the heart of Cain to murder his brother; and his voice has been crying out from the ground ever since. For some have been birthed in the wind. Some have become desolate souls wandering this earth in search of vengeance. But have I not said that vengeance is mine, and that I would repay?

You will reap the whirlwind. For the whirlwind will blow across the land, and the destroyer will come, seeking the hearts of those that are filled with bloodshed. But some have said that surely we have raised our children right; surely we have brought them up in the fear of the Lord.

Your children have sought their own truth. They have searched for it amid the ruins of a society that has fallen. For the drugs and the sinfulness of a land that has gone its own way, has produced an offspring that would seek to destroy all that has been told of them.

You have reaped the consequences of your own actions. You have gone the way of Cain. "

Stephen Hanson



10 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 11 searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. 12 To them it was revealed that, not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into. 1 Peter 1

"For thousands of years I have moved my Spirit upon certain people from the past, but now in these last days I AM forming a group of people who are now being set apart. For truly, the days ahead are urgent. Truly those things that were prophesied in the past about these days, are now being seen, and I tell you that they will come to fruition soon.

For I say that it is high time to get your houses in order. I say that it is high time to set aside those things that would hinder your walk with Me. For the times and everything that happens in them, are in my hands. I control the events that will follow. But I AM birthing things deep down inside of you. These things that I AM birthing will prepare you for what is ahead.

Then when the wind blows against your houses, its timbers will stand strong. Then you will be alerted when trouble comes. For if you hear my voice calling out to you, then you will know indeed, that it is I. For I control the waves that lap against your shores. I AM He that formed the mountains around you. I AM the One that put eternity in the heart of man.

And so, as I have said so many times before, the darkness will come and spread across the land, but you will be alerted about it beforehand. And then, even when the cities fall, and chaos is reigning all around you, you will stand in Me, secure knowing that I will bring you through all of these things. "

2 How long, O you sons of men, will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood? Selah 3 But know that the Lord has set apart for Himself him who is godly; The Lord will hear when I call to Him. Psalm 4

9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. Zechariah 13

Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10

"Those who are called to my service and who are marked for a life set apart unto Me, will experience many things that would be labeled as strange to those around them. For the world would know you not. The world knows nothing about the plight that you now are experiencing. But those set apart for these last days are going through a series of divine encounters that would be beyond the scope of anything that even many believers would experience.

For I have set apart my true prophets and apostles, for the hour that they are in now. They must experience the deep heat of my furnace. For it has been turned up all the way. For it must be this way in order for them to be tempered. For with the tempering comes a metal that is ready to be used in my hands.

And then when the tempering time comes to an end, the work that I have called them to do will be made manifest to a world around them. Then the world will know that I AM the great I AM. Then the mountains will bow to my presence. Then those called for a time such as this, will set the world ablaze.

Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

"I will declare your righteousness And your works, For they will not profit you. 13 When you cry out, Let your collection of idols deliver you. But the wind will carry them all away, A breath will take them. But he who puts his trust in Me shall possess the land, And shall inherit My holy mountain.” Isaiah 57

"From the depths of the earth I hear my people call out to Me. I hear their cries for help in this hour. I see their struggles and I know of their pain. I AM here to help them; and yet many still do not believe. With every waking moment, I hear their pleas for help. I AM a Father who truly cares about the plight of my people.

But what is to be said about those who do not believe in Me? What is to be said about a people who follow after their own desires and they who would follow after other gods? For I tell you that even my own choose a way that is other than my own.

I AM that I AM, and I will not give my worship unto another. For even those things that you dwell upon, and that you consume your time with, are now becoming the idols to yourselves. They may not be things of wood or stone, but they occupy your hearts and minds more than Me. Will they save you on the day of trouble? Will they keep the buildings all around you from falling upon you? Go ahead, pray to them, I'm sure that they will help you on that day. "

Stephen Hanson



The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;3 to grant to those who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning,the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.4 They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. Isaiah 61:1-11

"What is there to be done? What is there to be done about a nation that has strayed so far from Me? Do you think that I honor your feasts? Do you think that I honor your full moon assemblies? Do you think that I honor your festivals? Many of you have mixed the things of this world with those things that you have been taught.

You are a fallen nation. You say that you are a Christian nation, but you have strayed so far from Me. Your forefathers built a nation that was to honor Me, and yet now you think that every practice is acceptable.

And so....what is to be done? You have drifted so far from Me. I have tried to bring you back to Me, but so many of you are lulled away by the things of this world. I have spoken through my prophets to you, but many of them you have shunned and put aside. Even your preachers and teachers speak only those things that are the soft words that you would want to receive.

But I have some who still honor Me. I still have some who have separated themselves from the world. These are those who are set apart. And when the time comes for the severe judgments to come, they will be kept safely when the winds come tearing across your land. Then as the darkness descends, the light that is given to them, will be spread unto others.

But woe unto those who are not ready. Woe unto those who have not prepared for these days. For you will be torn asunder. You will be divided right down the middle. Your king will be toppled on that day, and you will fall into ruin. But I have a people who will rise from the ashes, and they will show you the way. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanso



And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12

"Is it any wonder that man would question the things that are happening around him? Is it any wonder that man would look the other way when the signs are everywhere pointing to my soon return?

Oh ye of little faith---do you not know that I can raise up a little child, and cause him or her to mighty things among you now? I can cause the oceans to spread open before you. I can cause the mountains to quake and the seas to rise just by my hand.

And yet many still doubt in my very existence. These are those who would only follow their rational minds. For you see...science has an answer for everything. These are those who say that the world came into existence without my involvement in it.

I have said that knowledge would increase; and so, technology has risen to such an extent that computer chips are found in the smallest of objects. And even now, robots can perform many of the jobs that man used to do. And yet with all of these advancements in technology, man's wisdom has not increased in the least.

For you think that you can do all things. The time will come when you will see how little you can do when your great machine has failed you."

Stephen Hanson



10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 [f]in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

"Everything is racing towards judgment, my people. Everything is racing towards the events of these last days. You have seen signs in the heavens and on the earth below. You have seen the love of many grow cold. You have watched and seen the corruption all around you. For there is turbulence in the air. And it is not the kind of turbulence that an airplane faces when it rides through the sky facing various conditions.

The turbulence that I AM speaking of is a spiritual one. For the spiritual condition of many is facing very trying times. There is a shaking going on deep inside. There is a shifting going on in your very frames. For just as the earth is going through many changes, and it is heaving back and forth, even so, you are experiencing this same thing on the inside.

As these are the last days, so this turbulence within you, will manifest itself within you, because there is a pulling in the heavenlies. There is always a spiritual battle going on, but even now it is growing even stronger and deeper. For the enemy knows that he has little time left. He is pulling all his minions out to attempt to thwart my plans. But I tell you that he will not succeed. My angels will always triumph over him. "

Stephen Hanson


14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. Ephesians 5:14

"What will you do oh man? What will you do when you will have to face the things that have been told of you concerning the plight of the last days upon you? Will you be able to weather the storms? Will you stand alert or will you remain silent?

For many of you are at ease and are not prepared. Many of you live in complacency. Many of you have been conformed into the world's image. Many of you are too blind when trouble arises. For you live in your comfortable homes; you think that all is well. You live in your own world thinking that nothing will penetrate the bubble that is around you.

Are you blind to the things that are happening around you? You have slumbered for too long. You must awake before it's too late."

Stephen Hanson



In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. Mark 1:35

"To be a prophet one must learn to be alone. One must put themselves in a place where the things of this world will drift away. One must open their hearts, eyes, and ears to the things of the Spirit. It is a lonely road at times---few would desire to travel upon it. For it will break you; it will tear at your heart strings. And yet the joy of hearing and receiving my word, can be greater than anything else in this world. It will captivate you. It will cause you to see the plights of the world around you. You will ride upon the wings of my Spirit, and yet, there will be other times that you will be angered at the injustice all around you. You will take your shoes off, knowing that you are on hollowed ground. It doesn't matter what time of day it is, or the season of the year, for you will always long to be in the courts of the Lord. You will see the world racing on around you, and you will know that the time is late. You will grieve at the loss of an old man that has just died, and yet you will see new birth all around you. Many would long to go to a wedding feast, but you would prefer to go to the house of mourning instead. For you long for the touch of wisdom upon your frame. You would speak your words in obedience, but would hope even more that men would take them to heart and receive them. Many may long for the calling, and yet very few would take the mantle to walk out their days.

Stephen Hanson



31 “But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. Matt. 25

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9

"Who are those who would follow after Me? Who are those who would follow Me to the end? Who are those that no matter what happens or comes, will take up their cross and follow after Me?

Indeed, there are very dark days ahead. Indeed, the darkness will fill the land, and it will pervade through every avenue of society. It will find its misty way through the doors of your churches. It will pervade its way through your homes.

And yet even when the darkness comes, will you still follow after Me? When many shun the truth and laugh at you, will you still follow after Me? When many deride you and make fun of you, will you still follow after Me?

For there is a great division coming; it is the division of the goats and the sheep. The world's ways are causing a great rift to be seen. And because of this great separation that is coming, the line that is being drawn between who is for Me and who is against Me, will become wider still.

Decide this day, whether or not you are for Me or against Me. "

Stephen Hanson



18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. John 15

“Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.” James 5:10

"If you are true to Me and my word, the world will come against you. For those who speak for Me, my prophets, you will face a series of trials unequaled to those who are in this world. For was I not persecuted? Did I not face a backlash from the rulers of this age?

Don't be surprised when the world will stand against you. Don't be surprised even when my very body stands against you. For much of the body is asleep. They have been lulled to sleep by the spirit of this age. Many go to their churches and hear the same sermons every Sunday. And now they hear another message.

Most are so used to the ease that they have experienced for years; and now one tells them that their entire world will be turned upside down. Now one tells them that their king is not the one that they thought he was. But yet even now, some still have their favorite prophets and messengers.

But go ahead, sing your songs and dress in your favorite clothes. I tell you, says the Lord, that none of this pleases Me. I would rather you go and listen to your finest concerts somewhere else!

Where will you go when your churches have fallen? What will happen when your red carpets and pews are demolished? Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezekiel 22

"How many people would I need to help turn around the condition of the United States? How many would I need to kneel on their hands and knees?

In a world where everyone does what is right in their own eyes, how can you find a people who are willing to stand in the gap for a nation? For many claim that they would stand in the gap for Me, and yet when the demands of this life tear at their souls they succumb to the weakness of their flesh.

When the seas rise and the earth quakes, will you still stand? When the cities crumble and men grab their hearts for fear, will you still stand? Will you run and flee when trouble comes, or will you stand resolute?

The time is quickly approaching when the door will be shut forever. For I have turned my back on a nation that has turned its back on Me. No longer will I tolerate the sins that have risen to my throne.

You will fall on that day and your fall will be great."

Stephen Hanson



2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. Matt. 16

"No need to wonder are these the last days you are living in. Truly I say to you, that these days will be marked in ways that other days previously had not known or shown before.

Many have predicted things in the past. Many had thought that the rise of Y2K would mark an end to many things, but it was merely their speculations that caused them to say these things. Truly, many even now, get caught-up and diverted from their observations and the things that they hear on the news. But I tell you that the signs are everywhere. I show signs in the heavens and on the earth below, but many get so caught-up in them that this is their sole source of inquiry.

I have told you to keep your eyes looking unto Me, for am I not the One that you believe in? Don't follow the crowd of thought that is so prevalent these days. For many have been deceived and have gone off into a ditch. "

He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. 30 Though youths grow weary and tired, And vigorous young men stumble badly, 31 Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40

"Through storms,through strong and cold winters, through dry summers, and all kinds of conditions, I the Lord will enable you to make it through them. For you are my people and the sheep of my pasture.

For I AM the Lord God who strengthens you. I AM He who brought the children of Israel out of Egypt. I AM the one who brought them out of Babylon. Any situation that you may face, I will bring you through it. I will never forsake you. The world will always let you down. Even my own people, will desert you. There are some who pretend to be your friends, and yet there may be some who will stick closer to you than a brother.

Spread your wings, and enlarge the place of your tent. For I AM calling you to soar higher with Me. I AM calling you to be in places where you have never been before. For those wind currents will allow you to soar with Me. The enemy will not touch you as you soar with Me in the heavenlies. "

Stephen Hanson



20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power. 21 What do you desire? Shall I come to you with a rod, or with love and a spirit of gentleness? 1 Cor. 4

3 Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 Your prophets have been like foxes among ruins, O Israel. 5 You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for the house of Israel, that it might stand in battle in the day of the Lord. 6 They have spoken falsehood and divined a lie; they say, ‘Says the Lord,’ when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word. Ezekiel 13

"My people, those whom I love; would you rather I come to you with a whip or with an olive branch? Did I not send tidings through Jeremiah the prophet, when he walked this earth? His words were not readily received by many, and yet they came forth at a time when they were needed.

Some say that the words do not offer hope and encouragement, and yet to those who place their hope and encouragement in Me, I place hope to them. Would there be 'soft words' given to a nation that has gone astray far from Me? Would I continually bless those who have forsaken Me? Would a parent send glad tidings to a child who had constantly disobeyed him? What would you say to the wayward children?

Tell Me my people, I am certain that you have the right words! Surely, you have the wisdom. Tell Me, do you think that I would bless a nation that has constantly murdered its children from the womb? Tell Me, do you think that I would bless a nation that shot its people and children in their schools? Your nation is sick and it needs the hand of a master surgeon.

Woe to those who say that all is well. Woe to those prophets who speak glad tidings of great joy. And yet, to a people who have forsaken the things of this world and have followed after Me, I offer hope and encouragement. For you will need this, as you traverse through the days ahead.

For I AM a God of judgment, and yet I AM also One who gives hope to a people who rely solely upon Me."

13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matt. 16

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Rev. 12:11

"Who do you say that I AM? Who do you say that I AM, my people? Am I the One who came riding upon a donkey many years ago? Am I the One who came to lift up the broken-hearted and set the captives free? I tell you that that was who I was then; and yet I still do set the captives free. But I AM coming back with a sword, my people. Will you recognize Me when I come?

For I come back with the army of heaven. I come riding back upon a white steed. Terror will fill the hearts of many, and yet my own will look upon the One that they have worshiped.

But I ask you still: Who do you say that I AM? For I AM the One that was pierced. My blood flowed down, and it was shed abroad for many. Many thought that I would deliver them from the rule of the Romans, but my kingdom is not of this world. Do you still think that my kingdom is of this world? For what you don't realize is that I suffered tribulation in this world and you will also; but you will overcome by my blood.

The blood serves as a propitiation for your sins, but the blood also serves as a wall of protection for you and your families. For no evil thing will come near your tent if you are covered in my blood. That is why the Israelities smeared the blood on the doorposts of their homes. The evil passed them by, and went into the Egyptian's homes. But now you have a much better covenant than them.

And so I want to tell you something: When all the devastation and troubles come upon you, plead the blood that was given for you. When the mountains quake, and when the seas rise, and your very land splits open, then plead the blood upon you and your family. Then a wall of protection will be around you.

Who do you say that I AM?"

“The nations have heard of thy shame, and thy cry hath filled the land: for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty, and they are fallen both together.” Jeremiah 46:12

"I tell you that you were once a mighty nation. You once stood as a bulwark to other lands. But now, those days are gone. Where once there was glory, now there will be disgrace. For you have given into the demands of others. You are being manipulated by outside sources. You will no longer stand as an ensign to the peoples.

Woe to those who pull the strings in your land! Woe to the leaders who stand idly by when a tyrant is at the helm. Woe to those who bend to the demand of others. For I tell you that your very capitol will crumble on that day. The rooms that house your meetings will be destroyed. For you will never return to your former glory.

Would that you would have heard the cries of your people. Would that you would have reached out to those who were hurting. But no, you would have rather rewarded the rich. Bright and glorious days are not for you. Your fall will be great. And I tell you that I will topple the one that now sits so proudly upon his throne. For disgrace has been added to disgrace.

For, as I have said so many times before, you will become the occupation of another. From the dark north, your land will be invaded. Your surveillance system will not catch it in time. A great war will break out and those involved, will wreck havoc upon the land, and many will perish because of the conflicts. These things will happen when your land splits open. For they will take advantage of the conflict.

But on that day many of you will be rescued. My mighty hand will guide you to places of safety. "

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, But a wise man is he who listens to counsel. Proverbs 12:15

"Who would come to a nation where chaos has reigned? For on every street corner there is violence and discontent. For you are a land that was formed by your forefathers, but you have drifted far from that design now. Those who came before you would know nothing about the land that you now live in.

For you are split between so many factions now. For I tell you that the one at your helm now is bringing you to utter destruction. For treason has come. You have thought that he would make your land great again, but it is quite the opposite.

For who is the one who would not listen to his advisers? You are now on a slippery slope to your own demise. "

16 Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43

"Everything is racing towards that day. I tell you that everything is racing towards that day when I will come to you. I know that many of you have wondered and have waited and waited, for that day to arrive. I know that many of you have struggled through many things. I know that some of you have almost given up at times. For the road has stretched out before you. It seems like that road would go on forever sometimes. But I tell you that I AM on that road before you. I beckon for you to come and follow Me. And when it seems like you can't go on any further, I will lift you up and carry you. For yes, there are many dangers ahead. Yes, it may appear at times that there isn't even a road, but I will make a way for you. I desire for more and more to come into my kingdom. That is why I have tarried so long. But soon, the trumpets will sound, and my angels that stand at the four corners of the globe, will release their judgments upon the earth. And you will find shelter in Me, says the Lord. You will escape from those severe things. No, you will not be raptured out of them. But I will tuck you under my wing, and you will find shelter there under my wings. The winds will blow across the land. Many will fall because their trust is not in Me. But even when the winds blow and the waters rise, I will rescue many in that day. For nation will rise against nation, and wars will spring up all around you, but my children will shine like the stars in the heavens. The earth will reel back and forth like a drunkard because it is wearing out. But remember that your home is not upon this earth. So set your hearts and eyes upon those things that are above. "

And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Ecclesiastics 12:12

5 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 1 Thess. 5

"This is the generation that will witness my return. For everything that has been written down concerning the events that lead-up to my return, will unfold. Many have speculated and have tried to figure these things out, and yet their studies and inquiries, have left them still questioning.

For speculation will never allow one to arrive at the right answer, and much study can weary the soul. One should be well aware that the signs are quite evident. For the turmoil and the chaos all around you, should be plain for all to see.

I have also said that knowledge would increase, and one would see these things playing out in front of you. For the knowledge of man is ever-increasing, and yet he still does not have a knowledge of Me. For those great technical skills that he has will never save him. For where is wisdom to be found? Where would one find out about the times and seasons that we are now living in? Would one lock themselves up in a monastery for years, devoting themselves to prayer and contemplation? Surely, one would arrive at the right answers there.

But go ahead, study your books. I'm sure that you'll find the right answers to your questions. You'll be able to find these things out on your own. No, I tell you, the world is racing forwards at a very rapid rate, and the things that you thought you were so certain of yesterday, are now becoming obsolete today.

But seek Me first above all things. Put aside every hindrance that may weigh you down. Run the race that is before you, and I will bring you through the finish line."

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Matt. 24

"Would you have Me return with peace or a sword? I tell you that you will find Me coming back with a sword. For I will come back to divide asunder between everything that is against Me. For everything that stands between you and Me will become a hindrance on that day. Truly, He who is not for Me is against Me. For your foes could be even of your own household on that day.

But stand firm. Be resolute. For truly I have not come to bring peace. Yes I was the Prince of Peace; I was the humble servant, and many threw palm branches at my feet, but now is a different time. Now the world has become darker, and faith has diminished. Now men have exchanged their faith in Me for self. Many think that they can do all things by themselves. You have attempted to create your own gods. And so, I will leave you to your own devices.

But when you look upon the One whom you have pierced, you will then know the true tragedy and error of your ways. "

Stephen Hanson



Thus says the Lord, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord. 6 “For he will be like a bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A land of salt without inhabitant. 7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord And whose trust is the Lord.8 “For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; Jeremiah 17: 5-8

"I tell you that you better get ready. You better get ready for everything's going to change in a moment. Everything that you see around you will change. The heavens and the earth itself, are going to be going through some deep changes.

The time of Jacob's Trouble will be soon upon your door steps. What manner of man or woman will I find then? Will you be ready when the sky turns dark all around you? Will you be ready when men's hearts will fail them? Will you be ready when calamity comes? Will you be ready when the earth's crust opens up?

For day will turn to night, and night will turn to day, before all these things happen. Men will try to check their clocks for the time intervals of these things to come. But in a moment, in just a few minutes, these things will be at your doorsteps. How would you be prepared, you would ask? Would you prepare with guns and a great arsenal? Would you dig a cave and hide out there until it all passes? I tell you oh man, you can't prepare with the weapons of man. But those who have put their trust in the shelter of my wings, will be saved on that day. "

12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 Tim. 1:12

“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” John 1:11

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Matt. 24

"Some of you are set apart. Some of you are set apart to be a witness for suffering in the days that are to come. For, I have told you that the days will be growing increasingly darker. And now that great cloud is approaching; it can be seen just out on the horizon.

For have you not known that I came into this world and I suffered for all humanity? I walked many long roads, and healed the sick, and cast out demons. But even unto my own, I was received not. And so, because I suffered, you also will meet the same opposition. But as I have said before, fear not, for I have overcome the world.

But I tell you indeed, this world will fall into even greater darkness. There will become an even greater separation between those who believe in Me and those who do not. For the great enemy of your souls is at work. The great deceiver has many agents at work and they have whispered their lies into the ears of many. But those of you who know Me and my word, will shed my light abroad to them.

Many are called and yet few are chosen. Some are called as a witness to stand upon these last days. Some will fall, and yet others will endure unto the end. For there will be trials beyond measure that you must endure, and there will be times when you will feel like giving up. For you will be hated by some, for many have loved the darkness rather than the light. But your light will shine abroad to many more. And that light will expose the deeds of darkness. But even so, some of you will be thrown in prison because the world will not know Me.

For the world will be rocked back and forth and men will give into the beast system. The one doomed for perdition will take over the world with his agenda, but many of you will be hidden from him. And then at the time appointed I will come, and all eyes will be upon the One whom you have pierced."

11 And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. 13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. 14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! Luke 15

"Why would someone who once knew Me, forsake Me now? I tell you that there are many who have known Me, but they have drifted apart from Me. They had come to know of my goodness and my truth, but now they have left to find their answers elsewhere.

And now they are like the prodigal son. For now you would sample the wares of this world. You would eat and find yourself alone in a land without anyone to guide you or protect you. But you will find that the wares of this world will never satisfy you. And eventually you will long to come back to the home of your Father. For He will welcome you on that day. He will open his arms and give you the fatted calf. But lo, perhaps you still long for the things of this world. Perhaps you would still eat the food that the pigs partake of. "

18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, 19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.19 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Luke 15

(This is a continuing theme that I keep seeing and hearing from the Lord. I don't know of the time frame for this, other than it will happen within our life time. Know that those who put their faith in the Almighty will be kept safely from these great upheavals that come upon the earth. But pray for your safety for yourself and others when the time approaches. None of this is ever to evoke fear but preparation and warning for what lies ahead.)

4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the [c]Christ,’ and will mislead many.6 You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Matthew 24

"I tell you that everything that you see around you will have changed. For this earth and everything in it, is going through birth pangs. I AM bringing this nation to its knees. For the earth will shake, and the waters will rise; and people will be running in fear for the things that will arise.

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a river and as I watched, tall Evergreen and Ponderosa trees began to fall into the river below. It wasn't long before the land on the sides of the river then crumbled and also fell into the river below. This event continued for some time as the river widened and got larger and larger in size. Then I saw people struggling to stay afloat in the river, but many of them were drowning and couldn't escape the fury of the current. The river continued to widen and I looked out across it and noticed that I couldn't see the other side of the bank. It seemed that the width of the river was now miles and miles wide. And then the scene faded.)

For the time of these events is not far off. Men will grasp their breasts in fear as the earth changes its appearance. For behold, on that day you will have two land masses. Many scoff at the idea of this, for they think that these things will never come to pass; but it is coming, it will happen in your life time.

Pray that you will be found safe on that day. "

3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3

38 And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: 39 And I will given them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Jeremiah 32
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 2

"All day long I listen to the pleas of my people. I hear their pain and suffering. I hear them as they pour their hearts out to Me. They are my people and they are the sheep of my pasture, and I watch over them. And the time will come when they will be set in ways that they know not. The time will come when this world and everything in it, will be in such turmoil that men will rend their hearts for the fear that has come upon them.

For I have told you so many times before, that this nation has now come under judgment. And yet there are so many naysayers. They would say, 'Where is the promised One that is to come? For this world and everything in it, has gone on now for many long years and nothing has shown that He has come yet.'

But I tell you, that their hearts will reel and they will go from the wrath that is to come. For surely, who would be able to stand on that day? Who will be able to stand on that day when the oceans rise against your shores? Who will be able to stand when the earth splits in half? I tell you that it will be calamity upon calamity. Brother will hate brother and your foes will be those of your own household. But he who stands firm until the end will be saved.

But I have provided a way for my people. For they will find refuge in the deserts and the hidden places; and they will be protected there. "

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Hebrews 12:1

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they [do it] to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. I Cor. 9

"I say to press on. Press on through all the things that you witness these days. Press on no matter what happens in your daily lives. Press on in sorrows and in joy. Press on when the sky is cloudy and when it is filled with sunshine.

You will be given strength for every day. You will be given the means and the equipping to continue the journeys that you are upon. But you must train yourselves to be ready for the things that are ahead. For you will be stretched in more ways than you can imagine. A long distance runner trains so that he can run in a marathon. He must be healthy and ready to run those long distances. The training that he goes through is much different than one would go through as a sprinter.

For a sprinter would just train for short distances. He would learn to run as fast as he could to compete in a race. He is only concerned about sprinting to the finish line. But if one is training as a long distance runner they must pace themselves in order to come to the finish line. You my people, must train this way. You must be able to train yourselves in rain or shine, in darkness and in light, in good times and in bad. For the road that lies ahead will be paved with all kinds of obstacles for you. But if you have trained for them then you will make it through them successfully."
