15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Tim. 2:15

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

14 Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers.15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, 2 Tim. 2

"There is much speculation that goes in for my people in this hour. Many dispute about this thing or that one, and yet how many study my word. I have said that my people suffer for their lack of knowledge. Many of you are led down roads and paths, thinking that this tidbit of information will offer you the solution that you are thinking. You are swayed by so many things.

But to be a true student of my word you must study to show yourself approved. But no, you would rather gather information from this source or that one, thinking that these sources are valid and true.

Look to the rock from which you were hewn. You have no need that anyone would teach you, for I AM your teacher. For you have a deep heritage, for as you are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, those who came before you endured all kinds of hardship, and yet they persevered to the end.

You have come to that great rock of faith; its roots go deeply into the ground. Draw sustenance knowing that through your ancestral roots that you will derive the strength and resolve to move forward."

11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6

17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. Rev. 19

(This message began with a series of visions. I was in a dark landscape next to a cliff. I looked down from the edge of this cliff into the dark below. It was deep darkness, and yet there seemed to be some movement below like luminous balls of reddish glowing objects. Then I turned around and noticed that there was a battle field around me. All was still very dark and yet there were thousands of soldiers all clad in some military gear like medieval armor. All of these soldiers stood still as if poised for the next round of fighting that was to happen. In the heavens above there were huge bolts of lightning that fell and hailstones that came upon the earth. A stretcher was brought forth and I looked upon the figure that was laid there. As I looked the figure then began to rise up. It was a young girl and she had golden hair and light-colored skin. She raised up and was handed some type of weaponry. She fired it into the distance and this seemed to cause all of the others around her to rejoice. And then within the darkness above, the sky opened up, and a rider upon a white horse came. He came upon the battle scene and then everything changed.)

"I tell you that the time of great darkness is rapidly approaching. This deep darkness will spread across the land and all would appear hopeless to many. But I tell you that these things must come, for the battle of the ages is at hand. All stand poised in the land for it to come. And yet I have said that even a little child would lead them. For watch for the young in the spirit, for even those of tender years will possess a strength and a resolve to capture the hearts of many.

The battle is raging all around you. Many do not know of the battle that goes on in the spiritual realm. For there the angels of darkness battle constantly for the hearts of man. But I tell you that your armor is needed now more and ever. Wear it as one would who is fully equipped for battle.

But at the end of the age the greatest battle will be fought. For here on the battle field men will wage war, and they will join sides with those who have held others in darkness. But I will come and wage war with the beast and all of his followers. And then the end of the age will come. " Stephen Hanson



batten down the hatches to fasten the entrances to the lower part of a ship using wooden boards to prepare for a difficult situation:

3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Psalm 93

“Batten-down the hatches, for it’s going to be a bumpy road ahead. For you better get ready, my people; it’s not going to be smooth-sailing. You are as a ship at sea for the waves will come in great force and fury, but I will save you from all the storms in your life.

When the fury comes it will sweep over your land, for I tell you that this recent hurricane will be nothing compared to what is coming. For your entire coastal regions will be devastated, and the entire appearance will be changed forever.

Gone will be the great city of New York City. Gone will be all those cities and land masses south of there, all the way down to Florida’s tip. For you have come under judgment oh land; and yet I will prepare some of you to warn the people ahead of time. Some have said, ‘But Lord we have repented’ we have lifted this nation up in prayer.’

But I tell you that you have not turned from your wicked ways. Your sins have continually reached my throne. Some have surely stood in the gap, and yet I have lifted the safety net from the nation. Your great Statue of Liberty will fall on that day and she will be swallowed up by the waves forever. “

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalm 2
"Why must the nations rage and say a vain thing? I tell you that the nations are awaiting to see what will be happening to your land. For there will be a changing of the guard. The one who is now the leader of your land will be forced out---another one waits in the wings.

For everything that has been said and done about him will finally come to a head. For the fury of all these activities will cause a backlash in your economy. His demise will be certain. But my plans are to bring about a people who are strong and who are not dependent upon the leaders of the land.

For your alliance was never meant to be given to a man. My people Israel had always wanted a king and yet Samuel was grieved about their choice, but I chose a young shepherd boy from the fields. But you will never have a leader like him again. My kingdom will last forever and its courts will always be ruled with justice. The fury that comes upon your land will cause men's hearts to fail them, but those who look to their true king will be brought safely through. "

5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 2 Peter 3

17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. Isaiah 65

"Watch and wait. For I tell you that this world is headed for destruction. What you see is only temporary, for I created this world out of nothing, and yet at the appropriate time, all the elements and everything that you see around you, will one day be burned up.

For it will all be gone, and yet I will make new heavens and a new earth. For the former things will not be remembered nor will they come to mind. For I long that man would see things from my point of view. I long that he would see eternity. I long that man would see beyond his temporary existence. For you all will be changed on that day. The heavens and the earth will be rolled-up and the New Jerusalem will come down from above, and there you will take residence with Me.

All the things from your former lives will be forgotten. A child will live out his days, and sorrow and death will be swallowed up forever. Do not hold on to all those things upon this earth, for time is fleeting and your lives are but a vapor.

For my redemption draweth nigh; all those things written down in my word will come to pass. But seek those things that are above, and don't hold on to everything that the earth has to offer you."

15 Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies.16 Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the Lord.’”17 In the seventh month of that same year, Hananiah the prophet died. Jer. 28

"The words of my true prophets will stand as a bulwark for this nation. Those words of the Hananiahs will be left in the dust. For the people may not receive them, and yet they will endure unto the end. For the word of God endures forever. The grass withereth and the flower fades but my word endures forever.

My word has gone out unto the ends of the earth, and it will accomplish that which I've called it to do. But woe, unto those who speak false words. Woe unto those who say that I will make America great again. It is not so. Those very words will fall to the ground. Those very words will enter back into your own hearts. For it was a pretentious dream that you uttered. You have given false hope to the people. I will demand these words of yours, and they will cause you to finally see that you have betrayed the people. And those very words that you have uttered, will come back to haunt you.

You will withdraw back into your caves on that day, and the voices of my true prophets will ring in your ears. For you have betrayed the very one that has sent you. You gathered many around you, and you declared your words as truth when they were not. For on that day when your king has fallen, then the sword will enter back into your own hearts. "

“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.” Habakkuk 1:4

"Behold I say, you were once great but now you are fallen. You once were a mighty nation, but now you will be left to the force of the wind. For chaos is there at every corner of your land. Every aspect of the land is held in waiting as the tyrant in the land continues his display. For the land will be split on that day; for you are a divided nation. Don't think you are great because of your achievements. Don't think that you have risen to such a great height and that you will not fall. For you can be swept away just by the mere touch of my hand.

You better get your house in order. You better get on solid ground. For the winds are going to blow, and the force of those gales will take everything with them. But if you would come to Me, then I will take you unto myself. But lo, how many times have my prophets spoken and you have not listened? How many times have you laughed at their words and thrown away my warnings?

Your halls of justice cannot even stand up for what is right. Justice cries out in the land, but the tyrant thinks that he owns and controls every aspect of the government. I tell you that his fall will be great!

Now go ahead about your business. I'm certain that you have more important things to do.

"What remains of your faith these days? Do you have the faith that withstands the things that are coming? Do you have the kind of faith that will allow you to walk through the deep and dark days that are ahead? When people are crying out in fear and looking for a solution to their problems, will your faith carry you through everything in spite of this?

I tell you that you will need the faith of Abraham. You will need the courage of Joshua. For your own abilities and gifts may help you, but when all is said and done, it will only be your faith that remains. For you would be tested beyond that which would seem humanly impossible.

For without this type of faith, you will be left to the devices of the world around you. For the world would bend you this way and that. It would attempt to mold you into its image. For the prince of the power of the air has sent a strong delusion to many. But the light of my Spirit can pierce any darkness around you. For remember that you wage not against flesh and blood, but of the darkness in heavenly places around you.

Find the faith that will be needed in the days ahead. Draw deep from it."

7 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

I, the Lord, am sending a wind to destroy the people of Babylonia and Babylon, its capital. 2 Foreign soldiers will come from every direction, and when the disaster is over, Babylonia will be empty and worthless. 3 I will tell these soldiers, “Attack quickly, before the Babylonians can string their bows or put on their armor. Kill their best soldiers and destroy their army!”4 Their troops will fall wounded in the streets of Babylon. Jeremiah 51

"You say that you are a righteous nation. You sing your songs to Me, and you say that you are the greatest nation upon the earth. For surely, no one will break our defenses or penetrate our walls. But you have fallen oh land. You have fallen beyond that which can be healed. Truly, your righteousness is as filthy rags to Me.

For I will bring you down from your lofty height. Where will you run to on that day when your buildings collapse around you? You think that your great buildings are secure? Your land is being held in the balance. For others plot against you, and in secret they have talked of your demise. You won't be able to run away from the tumult that comes.

Oh but surely our great might would save us, you would say in your heart. For have we not stood up for what is right? Have we not been a beacon of light to the world? I tell you that your shame is upon you, says the Lord. For you say that you are righteous, and yet many of your own people live in poverty. You say that you are a light to the world around you, and yet that very light has diminished to such an extent that now only a flicker is seen.

You will fall from your great pinnacle; and the fall will be heard throughout the globe. But out of the ashes will come a people who have truly honored Me. These don't sing songs just of pretension, but rather their hearts are drawn to Me.

But the tumult rises and the chaos continues. The halls of justice have become clouded as the one who sits upon the throne spews out his malicious orders."

Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment. For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, by Chloe's people, that there are quarrels among you. Now I mean this, that each one of you is saying, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and "I of Cephas," and "I of Christ." Has Christ been divided? Paul was not crucified for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one would say you were baptized in my name. Now I did baptize also the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other. For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not in cleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void. 1 Cor. 1:10-17

"What do you say? Have you considered the state of affairs in this land? Have you chosen to follow a man who has brought chaos to the land? I tell you that a spirit is sweeping the land, and it is not a spirit of good but rather of great chaos and dissension. For you were birthed as one nation but now the stars and stripes on your flag will ever flow into another image.

For there is a wild, reckless spirit that is being loosed. It would brandish any sword, and release any vile arguments towards those who stand in their way. For I tell you that the upheavals will become greater and greater. The great division has begun. For you will see a demonstration of the people, and they will rise-up like never before. The demonstrations of the 60's will pale in comparison to all of this.

You have ever been a nation of laws and yet now, those laws and articles, are being attempted to be bent towards the spirit of a man who would corrupt the very institution that is meant to be upheld.

The songs of your forefathers is heard coming from the dust. But the beating of the drum and the sound of the flute is muffled, because of the reckless spirit of dissension that has swept across the land. "

43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.” John 11

For this reason it says, "Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you." Ephesians 5:14

"I tell you that it is time to rise up. It is time to rise up from your slumber. For many of you are still in the grave. I spoke to Lazarus and had him step out of his grave clothes and come into the light. For death had taken him, and yet I called him forth.

For on that day when you have entered death, the grave will not contain you. And yet I'm calling you in this very hour to rise up. Rise up from the complacency that has consumed many of you. Rise up from the mundane and the ordinary chores of the day. Rise up oh sleeper!

For many of you are dead; you walk around with no purpose in mind, seeing the world in front of you, and yet your eyes are not
open to Me. Death has taken you now, but in Me there is new life. You have become like dead-men walking. For what life is there is such as these?

I have come to give you life and to give it more abundantly; but you need to let go of your old grave clothes. For the raiment I give to you is of a heavenly attire. It is given to you to wear in my kingdom. For once you were dead but now you are alive. Let go of the old, and come and embrace the new.

You are my children and I have given you an inheritance. "

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. Joel 2

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

"For, as much as I have come into the world, I sought out those who were mine. From since the beginning of time I sought out a people who would be willing to develop a relationship with Me. I found them and separated them unto myself. And now in these last days I have poured my Spirit out unto many. I said through my prophet Joel, that I would pour my Spirit out, and that your young men would see visions and your old men would dream dreams. And so many now have been seeing these things in my Spirit. But what you see at times may well be coming from the enemy. For the enemy has come attempting to duplicate those things that I have freely given unto my own.

Have I not said to test the spirits? Have I not said to seek out that which is true and to separate the false from it? Many that speak and declare dreams and visions in this hour, are now speaking from another spirit. They have been caught-up in the winds of the spirit that have come, and they pushed through into this other realm, thinking that it was from Me but it was not.

I tell you to believe them not. Don't fall prey to the other spirits that are around you. I have given my spirit of discernment and with it, you would be able to discern between that which is true and that which is false. But at the same time with this discernment, don't throw away that which is good. Don't use your earthly discernment but with the divine attributes that I have implanted within this gift, learn to distinguish the subtleties that the enemy has implanted within some of the words of some. "

23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Mark 11

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Peter 2:1

"Speak to those things that are not as if they were. For my word is embodied in your faith believing that what you speak will come into existence. Many of you have faith, but in the coming months you will need a faith that would move mountains. For have I not said that if you tell this mountain to be removed into the sea, that then it would be done? For when the things of this world are perishing, you will need a faith that would cause you to do and say these things.

For there surely are many mountains in your lives. There surely are many instances of things of mountains in the spiritual realm that have been obstacles in your lives. But I tell you, when you speak believing that I can do this thing or that one, it will be done according to your faith.

But don't think that you can just move any mountain in my name. Don't be frivolous with your faith. For many think that they can buy anything in this world. For there are many false teachers who have deceived many. These are those who think they can do anything, and they have prostituted their faith in Me. "

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Isaiah 14

18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29

"I will cast you down from your lofty throne, says the Lord. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled. Your nation is racing towards judgment. The sheep will be scattered on that day, and many will run to and fro searching for peace in the midst of the storm. For you have given bread to the rich and not to the poor. Your borders will be breached on that day. For you thought that your walls were secure, but they were only secure in your own might and not in mine, says the Lord.

Oh how you have fallen. But if you would have cared for the widow and the fatherless, then I would have rewarded you. But you long to be rewarded in riches rather than humbling yourself before Me. Your walls are not strong enough; for your mortar has holes in it. Lies and deceit are ever in the walls of your White House now. You will never be great again. For the twisted words of the man at the helm now have caused chaos to reign.

But go ahead and hate that which is good. When truth is a lie, and lies are proclaimed as the truth, then surely there is no light ahead to be seen. I have said that my people perish without a vision. For when there is no vision, then any recourse is taken. Then man creeps along in the darkness. Then he tries to find a way through the maze that he has created."

11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it. Amos 8 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4
"For I have told you many times before that the land must be purged. For the evil works of many has risen to such a height that I must cleanse it. Woe to those who say that all is well. Woe to those preachers who only preach the good news. For your words tickle the ears of my people. You are held accountable to everything that you preach to them. I tell you that I will bring you down from your lofty pulpits.

I have said that those who preach and teach the word will be judged more severely. For you are held accountable for every word that you preach and teach. For where would my people go to hear the word of God if it is not from you? But in many of your sanctuaries all I see are men-pleasers.

But I AM the true shepherd of my people. I alone can lead them to green pastures. I alone can feed them with the bread from above. In these days there will be a scarcity for hearing the true word of God. In these days men and women will search high and low for the word that comes down from heaven. For surely, there is a famine for hearing the true word of God.

Your conferences are filled with hype and supposed miraculous signs. Those who go there flock to hear their favorite speaker, and in the end, their pockets are filled with the money that they make from off of you.

These are those who have prostituted my word. "

7 “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:8 As I live, declares the Lord God, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, 9 therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: 10 Thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them. Ezekiel 34

7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. Psalm 32

"My people you need to find the time to rest in Me. For when all the storms are gathering around you, there is a place of rest to be found in Me. For even in the eye of a hurricane it is quiet there. There are places within my Spirit where you can rest. There are places where the storm clouds will reside. There are places where you can hide beneath my robe. For even when all around you seems to be in fury, I will tuck you under my wing. For have you not seen the sun come out even when it is raining? I can be your hiding place. You can find rest my people. I will bring you to those places, even when chaos reigns all around you. There you will find comfort under my wings. For even when the great days of darkness come, I will be a sanctuary to you. "

12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. Exodus 12

"What do you say to a nation that has gone astray? What would you say to a people who once honored Me but have now become estranged? For the time is coming when the winds will blow across this land, and the dust will reveal the sins that had come. I have beckoned to you many times in the past, but you shut your ears to what I was saying then. Time after time I beckoned for to come back to Me, but it will be too late on that day.

For the great days of darkness are coming, and they will spread their blanket. Every aspect of your land will be engulfed in this darkness. For the destroyer is coming. Death and destruction will be at your doors, but remember what I did with the Israelites. For they put the blood of the covenant upon the portals of their homes. My blood will protect you on that day. It will prevent the destroyer of entering into your homes.

I have so many other things to say to you, but in time all will be revealed. "
1 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? Hebrews 9

10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 1 Peter 1

17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. Matt. 13:17

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. Psalm 91

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matt. 24:21

"You my people, must rise above. You must rise above the situations in your life when you are facing various difficulties and set backs. For I have called you to rise above this world. You will face many tribulations and difficulties in the days ahead. For this world and everything in it, will face a series of judgments unlike what it has ever faced before.

You must brace yourself; you must stand firm knowing that when the wind blows at its hardest, that I AM in the middle of the gale with you. For when the trees bow to the ground, when the mountains quake, and when the seas rise, I will be there. For under my wings there is constant protection. But I tell you that you must be aware of what is coming. For truly these are the days that the prophets have looked into. For your very capitol will fall on that day. Your government will be in such disarray that nothing would ever seem to bring back a sense of order upon it.

For how would order be achieved when your nation is split right down the middle? How can the stars and stripes save you when they have become so fragmented? Your present leader will fall, and his fall will be great. For you have thought that a king would save you. But all it has done now has caused even more division and chaos. "

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. 3 Against him that bendeth let the archer bend his bow, and against him that lifteth himself up in his brigandine: and spare ye not her young men; destroy ye utterly all her host. 4 Thus the slain shall fall in the land of the Chaldeans, and they that are thrust through in her streets.

5 For Israel hath not been forsaken, nor Judah of his God, of the Lord of hosts; though their land was filled with sin against the Holy One of Israel. 6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the Lord's vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence. 7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the Lord's hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.8 Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so be she may be healed. 9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies. Jeremiah 51

"I tell you that you are racing towards judgment. There have been warnings after warnings concerning your fate, oh land. You think that you are a righteous nation, but you have fallen. Your land will be desolate on that day. There will be places of refuge set-up, but the majority of your land will have been taken over.

Do you think you will escape my judgment, says the Lord? For your sins have been as Sodom. Your land will have left its former glory. No more will your flag wave. For your stars and stripes will have changed their appearance.

I tell you that they will come from the north. They will come in the secrecy of the night. I have told you before about the joining together of forces. For China and Russia will become a force of might on that day.

As they come, your surveillance system will have caught them, but only when it is too late. You will be invaded when your defenses are low. For your land will be in an upheaval over the political skirmishes that have now been plaguing you for months. For the enemy comes at the inopportune time. He comes when you are at your weakest.

But because there are still a few who have called upon my name; I will rescue many. For I will not leave you totally desolate. You will return and call upon my name, even in the midst of the great terror that comes upon you.

For you were once mine. You once danced in the streets. You once had the freedom to do the things from hearts that would rejoice in my presence. But you have fallen so far; you have fallen beyond that which now could be healed. "

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. Luke 19:10

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1

"For I came into this world to seek and to save the lost. I came that man might come to Me, and to lay their burdens down at my feet. I came to the lost and forsaken. I came to those who had no hope. And yet to all these that I came to, only a handful received my gift to them. For you see, the world is much too proud; it longs to do all things by itself.

I came to my own and my own received Me not. I reached out my hand to a lost generation, and some sang their songs to Me, and they even opened the scriptures to find out what I did in times past. But now those words have fallen to the ground, for most think that those things are not for the present time.

Those times in the past were for miracles, they say. Now we have doctors and technology. And yet that very word that you now read, is alive and it is ready to be used in the situations that you now face.

For, do you not know that I created this world out of nothing? I spoke this very world into existence. I created man and woman, and gave them a place to live. And yet now many think that science is the one that somehow brought all these things together. You somehow think that this pile of dirt that spins perfectly around on its axis and allows you to experience night and day just somehow happened?

You, great nation that you think you are, you will face a tumult beyond your wildest dreams and thoughts. You will be thrown into such chaos and perhaps then you will see that your great god of science will not save you. When your bridges fall and your money has fallen away, will you then call out to Me?

You have ignored those who have spoken in my name. So it has always been."

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Cor.4

"For I tell you that you are being given a strong delusion. You are being given a strong delusion now. For the world is racing towards judgment. Much of it is not even aware of these things. For the world is blinded to those things of my Spirit. The king of this world has had many drink of the cup of this delusion. For in this cup are the things of this world. In it you will find the pursuit of riches. In it you will find the sins of the flesh. In it you will find all kinds of depravity.

But the cup that I give to you is overflowing with my great love for you. In this cup of mine, you will find the blood that was poured out and given to you. For it is a cup that was freely given to all, but it was rejected by many. The blood flowed and it reached unto many as I was cast down.

But now many have been blinded, for they only see the world and all it has to offer them. But if they would take off those things that have blinded them, then they would see that the world is only temporary. "

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Cor.

"In the coming days and months this nation will be turned upside down. For the ordeals that have been going on for some time now will culminate in a tragic scene. Those things that have been going on concerning the Russian infiltration into the affairs of the United States will be plainly seen by all. For your news reports have seen how some have twisted this thing and that one, and truth has become a lie to some. This entire situation will become something that causes your time of Watergate to appear as child's play.

But you see, this is all a part of how the enemy has divided your land. You once were united, but now every faction is at work among your members. No more are you to be called a United States. For you were birthed as "one" but time after time, you have shown how hatred and anger has caused you to lash out at each other.

For it has been black against white. It has been rich against poor. It has been Republican against Democrat. It has been one thing against another for some time now, and it has brought about bloodshed even among those of your own kind.

Even in your own churches, you are divided about this issue or that one. You argue about many things, and you are left with only the bitterness in your own heart. You think that your lofty prayers will help you. You think that your great conservative values will rise to a place of righteousness! But I tell you that they are only as filthy rags to Me!

You will face the brunt of your divisions. You will find out soon enough how divided you are. And then at that time, it won't be just a matter of the issues that you are divided about. Then your great land will be split right down the middle. "

Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. 36 Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, [k]were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented— 38 of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth.39 And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, 40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us. Hebrews 11

"For you were chosen as my own, says the Lord. You were chosen as a people who would rise in these last days. You were chosen to speak the very words of God. You were chosen to do things that were great in the eyes of your king. But now I see that you have shrunk back, and fallen into fear because the world hates you.

Have I not said that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Were those who came before you afraid to stand up for Me? For they were thrown into prison, they were mocked and beaten, and some were burned alive. And now in these last days, I tell you that the heat will be turned up. You think that your trials have been difficult up until this point, just wait when the world around you turns their back on you.

But is it better for the world to turn its back on you or Me? For it is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of a God of judgment. For this world is racing towards judgment, and this entire nation will feel the blunt force as my hand rocks this world back and forth. For your great monetary system will fail. Your dollar will lose its value. Those who have invested millions will lose all their money in one day.

I have told you about these things in my word. I have prepared you and sent you prophets who would speak the truth about these days, but many of you have chosen rather to hear the words of those who would speak pleasing words instead. "

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3

8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Isaiah 40:8

"I tell you that I AM doing a new thing. It is said in my word that there is nothing new under the sun, but I tell you that I AM doing a new thing. For hope will spring out among many because of the things that I AM doing. Surely the world looks for worldly pleasures and they seek for those things that would gratify their flesh. But my servants who are mine seek those things that are above. For surely those things that are above the earth are where you are not bound to those that are below.

For here upon this earth there is disease and famine. Here there is depravity of all kinds. For men attempt to grab what they think belongs to them. They step upon each other's throats to acquire the best homes, the most luxurious cars, and items that would satisfy their appetites.

For those who are born of the dust will always be looking for something better and better. But I have called you to better things. I have called to those things that are seated above. For those things that are seated at my throne are those things that will last forever.

But what are those things that would last forever? What are those things that are seated above? For have I not said in my word to follow after peace with all men? Have I not said to follow after faith, hope, and love? For everything else will decay. Everything else will rust and will fall into the earth.

My word will last forever. For the grass withereth and the flower fades, but the word of God will last forever. And so, when I say that I AM doing a new thing, what I mean is that those things that are seated above, will be instilled in each of you. You will rise to new heights in Me. Truly, all around you will decay into darkness, but those things that are in you will remain.

You will sing a new song on that day. For the former things will not be remembered nor will they come to mind.

So shall it be done."

And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Isaiah 2:19

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matt. 24

"Will you come to Me on this day, says the Lord? Will you come to Me no matter what you may think or feel? Will you come to Me when the skies are cloudy? Will you come to Me when you are downcast?

For many come to Me only when there is trouble ensuing. They come to Me to deliver them from their troubles. And yet when all is well, very few come to Me because they think that trouble will not come to them again. But I tell you that this world is filled with trouble. Trouble has been birthed ever since the time of the fall of man. I have said that the rain falls on the just and the unjust, and trouble comes when you would least expect it.

This world is racing towards judgment, and I tell you that judgment has begun on your nation. There will be no escaping the judgment that comes. For men and women will hide their faces from the ensuing judgment that comes. For the time of Jacob's Trouble is nearly upon you.

Where will you run to and hide to on that day? Will you run to your nearest congressman? Perhaps your military will help you. I tell you that you won't have enough guns to save you on that day. You may think that digging a hole in the ground will save you on that day, but I tell you that the battle will shake the very ground, and those that think that they can hide on that day will not escape from it.

The one doomed for perdition will come and many will give into the beast system. But those who endure unto the end will be saved. I will give them the strength to endure through these days. They will be met with great resistance, but my wisdom will be poured out upon them, and they will do great feats and their eyes will shine like the stars above."

Stephen Hanson



16 Thus says the Lord:“Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it;Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ 17 Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’ 18 Therefore hear, you nations,And know, O congregation, what is among them. 19 Hear, O earth! Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people—The fruit of their thoughts, Because they have not heeded My words Nor My law, but rejected it. 20 For what purpose to Me Comes frankincense from Sheba, And sweet cane from a far country? Your burnt offerings are not acceptable, Nor your sacrifices sweet to Me.” Jeremiah 6

"What has become of your land, says the Lord? What has become of what was once the land of the free and the home of the brave? What has become of a place where children could roam free without the worry of being killed? What has become of those who would come to your land seeking refuge from murder and mayhem?

You say that you are a land that is great and it has the ability to offer many opportunities to those who would come to your shores. You say that you are the greatest nation on earth. Well then...what is it that makes you great? What is it that makes you stand out from all the other nations?

You were birthed as a nation that came across the shores from England. You forged your way through many wars. You found a way amid the many factions that might pull you apart. And yet now many years from your birth, your land is riddled with more divisions than it has ever had before.

You fly your flag of the United States and yet you are not united at all! I tell you that you will fall; and your fall from grace will be great. If you would have bowed your knees to my Son, and found a way to rise above those things that have caused you such great division now, then I would have rescued you.

But you have chosen your own destiny now. You have taken a path towards your own destruction. You quote your scriptures and you sing your songs, but your behavior has not changed. "
