WILL YOU BE READY FOR MY RETURN?



6/30/19

2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Phil. 3

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;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.27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21

"Dear people of God, be careful how you live these days. Walk as wise men, and not as foolish ones. The time is short, so make the most of the time that you have. The enemy of your souls prowls around like a devouring lion. Study to show yourself approved.

Watch out for the dogs--those would attempt to hurt you. For the enemy would attempt to trip you up. During these days there are many who would dismiss my return. Surely it will come and at that time, and many will look upon the One they pierced, and then they will mourn for their very lives.

But will you be ready for my return, says the Lord? Will you be ready when I come for you? For many of my children are asleep in this hour. Don't let that day take you by surprise! For surely the signs are everywhere around you, and many are aware of those signs, and yet some even of my own, have misread those signs.

Surely the nations will rage and many will go to and fro in confusion and fear, and yet there will be deception all around you. And now there is a deep deception in my body. For now even many do not still recognize it. There is deception in the ranks, says the Lord. For you have chosen a man who would bring you to ruin, and yet you elevate him as if he was a god.

Beware, says the Lord, for at a certain time it may be too late to turn back."

THE RIVER AWAITS YOU



6/24/19

And he showed me a pure river of the Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Rev. 22:1

(It is important to find sustenance in this life we live, but we must find that sustenance from feeding and drinking from the everlasting stream of God. For there is a river that flows directly from God's throne. Find that river that flows and draw from it. Drink from it and go even into the deep parts, for there you will find revelation and truth.)

"The river awaits you, my people. Would you step into the river, where my Spirit flows? For there you will be quickened. There you will be refreshed. But come into the deeper parts. Come and behold my glory there. There you will find all kinds of jewels. "

SEEK THOSE THINGS THAT ARE ABOVE



6/23/19

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

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt. 6

"It is a new day, and so with this new day what will you be doing in it? Will you waste away the hours or will you spend them considering your life and the direction that it is going? There are many pursuits in this life, and yet there is only one that is important. Don't spend your time in fruitless things, but consider the outcome of your actions. For time has a way of wasting away the hours. Pursue those things that are everlasting. What are those things that are everlasting? For I have said that faith, hope and love are the greatest--seek those things, and then everything else will fall into place.

Why spend your money on things that will not last? For everything in this world will decay. Here there are surely beautiful things, and one may find all that they desire, and yet eventually moth and rust will consume them. All is vanity in the end. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve both God and mammon. But if you live a life of simplicity and grace towards Me then you will surely have all that you need.

Consider the lilies of the field--for they neither toil nor spin, and yet the beauty of Solomon cannot compare with them. If you have food and clothing, and a place to lay your head, then surely you have all that you need. For I clothe the hillsides and I give food to the sparrows, surely I care more about you than any of these. "

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. Luke 12

WHO HAS STOOD IN MY COUNSEL?



6/8/19

For who among them has stood in the council of the Lord to see and to hear his word,or who has paid attention to his word and listened? 19 Behold, the storm of the Lord! Wrath has gone forth, a whirling tempest; it will burst upon the head of the wicked. 20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he has executed and accomplished the intents of his heart. In the latter days you will understand it clearly. 21 “I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied.22 But if they had stood in my council, then they would have proclaimed my words to my people, and they would have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their deeds. Jeremiah 23

"What man has stood in my counsel, says the Lord. For I AM sharpening your weapons of war, says the Lord. Who has stood before my throne and has been known by Me? Who of you knows Me and has allowed my word to soak down into your sinews? Truly,many claim to know Me and yet they have not stood in my presence.

Many of you claim to be apostles and prophets. You claim a title before man. You parade your great feats of miraculous deeds, and yet you only want the glory of man. But those who truly know Me, have sat before my throne often. They have heard the cries of the people. They have visited the outcasts, and they have given themselves unto the needy.

Have I not said that you would know them by their fruits? And yet you think that the fruit is healthy and ripe, and yet it is rotten to the core. Oh you foolish people! Gain some much needed discernment, for in the days ahead you will need it more than ever.

And yet I will not leave you comfortless. For the one doomed to perdition is among you; and yet you have been betrayed by your lack of discernment. For I AM not to make this land great again. You take your bibles from your shelves and you split hairs over the most trivial of matters, and yet those things that you should be seeing are right in front of you!"

THE HEAVENS ARE HIGHER THAN THE EARTH



6/6/19

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55

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. Col. 3:1

"For the heavens are higher than the earth; my throne is not seated upon this earth and yet it is evermore there upon the hearts who reverence Me. Whatever you reverence is that which is foremost upon your heart.

What do you dwell upon, my people? What is it that occupies your mind? For those who dwell and think about the things of this earth are evermore consumed with them. For the affairs of man and the troubles of this earth are an endless pursuit. For there is a striving; there is a chasing after the many things that man would pursue.

Many have fallen into things because they have sought after riches and fame. For the love of money is the root of all evil. This world will never satisfy you--for it is temporal. But if you would seek those things that are above, then the heavens would open up for you. Then my heavenly Father would bring you into all truth.

Seek those things that are above. Seek those things that are everlasting. Then the earth and its troubles will fade away."

WHAT WILL YOU DO OH LAND OF AMERICA?



5/29/19

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

"What will you do oh land of America? What will you do when your shores are invaded? What will you do when you are left to your own devices? For at that time that is coming your nation will be torn right down the middle. You will not find the aid of the government to help you on that day.

For the earth will crack open on that day. A great rift will open-up. It will run deep and wide, and many will perish on that day. Those of you who live along the great river will lose all of your belongings. Some will struggle to get to the very top of the rift, and with their arms they will clench the sides. But many others will fall into the great chasm below.

You have been warned so many times before, and yet many of you have not heeded these warnings. Surely that day will come, says the Lord. It will come as a thief in the night. The Great Lakes of the north will spill over and they will overflow that great river you call the Mississippi. It will come, says the Lord.

And then your great land will be torn in half. Then your land will be separated from east to west. Ah, but you say that we are a holy nation. We were founded upon those holy principles. No, I tell you that your land is torn asunder.

You cannot stop the judgment that is coming. You cannot turn back the hands on the clock. For I AM a God of judgment but I AM also a God of mercy. And so that out of my great mercy I will spare those who come to Me on that day. But woe to those who shun Me. Woe to those who declare black as white. Woe to those who say they are righteous and yet they are not.

For you think that only one branch of your government is righteous. Your righteousness pales in importance to what you should really be doing. Your corruption runs like a cancer. Your leaders are as corrupt as they have ever been. You are blind to what is coming oh land. Prepare for what is coming or continue to believe the lies."

THERE IS SIFTING--A CHANGE IN THE DIRECTION FOR SOME OF YOU



5/26/19

21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30

"There are many things that are being birthed in this hour. There are new beginnings that are coming. Just as a seed is planted and it grows into a plant, so also there are new things, new ministries that being birthed. For even with a new season the ground is fertile and ready for the seed to sprout; but even so, there are new directions and new things that some of you are going to be doing. For there is a shifting; there is a change in the direction that I AM placing on some of you.

You must be sensitive to my leading because I will alert you to the path that you should be taking. Just because you have been doing things the same way for many years doesn't mean that I will always be leading you in that direction. Be ready to go about things in a different way. Be ready to venture out in these new ways at a moment's notice. "

Stephen Hanson

MAN'S AGENDAS ARE NOT MINE



5/25/19

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. James 1

"What are the things you would be about today, says the Lord? What would you find yourself doing in this hour? Would you be hurrying about doing this thing or that? What would your cause be? For the causes and the agendas of man are many. There are many who think they are doing my will and yet rather, they are busy doing their own things. For my ways are not your ways and neither are my thoughts your thoughts. But the best thing that you can be doing is to be about my business; and what is my business, says the Lord? My business is lifting-up the downtrodden. My business is helping those who have gone astray. My business is looking out for the lost and those who have gone astray. Many of the agendas of man may seem to be noble, but in the long run they are about your own abilities and not mine."

THE CREATION WAITS FOR THE SONS TO BE REVEALED



5/18/19

Evening

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8

"The world waits for my eager return. Many speculate and think that they have everything figured out, but have I not said that no one knows the day or the hour? But I tell you that the hourglass is waning. I hold the hourglass in my hands. But just as the waves keep coming upon the shoreline, one day comes after the next. But eventually those waves that come upon the shoreline will come to a point in time when this earth will be rolled-up. For the earth has been experiencing birth pangs. A woman goes through the travail of birth pangs, and in time she eventually gives birth to the child. Eventually that child will come forth, says the Lord.

For the creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the warriors of this earth are soon to be made known. For they have travailed in the Spirit and have interceded during the many battles that many of my children are now facing. For I tell you that many battles are now being won in this spiritual warfare that they continue to fight for.

For they battle against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in high places. But even with the many battles that have been fought in prayer, a great judgment is upon this land. You cannot turn back the hands of time upon it. For you have reached a pinnacle oh land. Your land is divided like never before. You fight for that which you cannot have. Your very government is about to topple. For the deceit and the treachery in your very walls of your White House have a beguiling spirit not unlike the most treacherous kings of the past. And I tell you that many of you, my people, have a shroud over your eyes that you do not even see.

Will you see when Marshall Law is enacted? Will you see when you are told what to do and think? Ah...but go ahead and listen to your favorite talk shows. I'm certain that they know the truth much better. "

A GREAT HERD IS COMING FROM THE EAST



5/17/19

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

(Many times this warning has been echoed by myself as well as a few more. This message is not meant in any way to instill fear, but to enable its hearers to be able to prepare for that day and event. It will come as surely as the sun rises in the east, and yet we don't know when. And yet if the same message continues to be said, then surely that time is coming sooner than we may think. God longs to prepare His children. Amen.)

"The world is racing towards judgment, says the Lord. When black is declared as white and white is declared as black, then you know that the time is near for the end of all things.

A great herd is coming from the east. They will come through your northern passage. For when your eyes are diverted elsewhere, then the enemy makes his plan. Then the land will hear the approach of hoof beats. But secretly they will come through that northern passage.

Your land will be taken by surprise. The leaders of the east have been devising this plan for many years. They have waited until the time is ripe. For China and Russia will have joined forces on that day. This has been sent to you as a warning.

Get your houses in order. Those who have heard my voice will be prepared; for then many will travel to the wastelands and other places to find shelter. In its time I will hasten it. "

YOU MUST SPEND TIME AT MY FEET



5/15/19


38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10

"What is the sound that you are hearing in this hour? Do you have ears to hear or are they plugged with the sounds of this world in them? I tell you that you would be wise to hear my voice in this world. For without knowing my true voice you will be left behind, and you won't be able to deal with the things that are very soon to come.

Your time spent in your churches will not enable to hear my voice more clearly. Your time spent in your classes or conferences will not enable you to hear my voice more clearly. Even your favorite bible teachers will not enable you to hear my voice more clearly.

You must spend time with Me. You must set aside periods of time with Me. For the more time spent with Me will enable you to discern my voice more clearly. You must pull yourself aside from the world's cares; for the world will draw you from every angle. It will pull at you from this way and that. It is an insidious thing. For the world itself is under the dominion of the prince of the power of the air. But I tell you that I watch over from above. For what you bind on earth will be bound in heaven.

Seek Me and I will be found. "

THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD



5/12/19

2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Isaiah 22

"On that day they will come to the mountain of the Lord and the glory of the Lord will be revealed.For all wars will have ceased at that time. It will be a time of peace for evermore without ending. For the great dragon will have been thrown into the endless pit. All of the sorrows of this present age will have come to an end. You will remember no more those trials and tribulations of this present age. Death will have been swallowed up. The present earth will have been replaced by the heavenly bride; for that city whose walls are everlasting will have come down from heaven. Those who believe in Me will have the right to sit at my table, but woe to those who have followed after darkness, for they will be with everlasting fire where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.

That river that flows from my throne shines with the brilliance of deep azure. And those trees on either side are for the healing of the nations. Truly, all of the nations of this present age will fall, but my government will stand for evermore. Everyone who hopes in these things purifies himself. All things will come to pass as they are unfolded."

I WILL GIVE BACK TO MY PEOPLE THAT WHICH HAS BEEN STOLEN



5/5/19

25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. Joel 2

"This is the time to gather up all your belongings and give them to Me, says the Lord. For everything belongs to Me. I own the cattle on a thousand hills, and everything on the earth is mine. But I tell you that the enemy has stolen much from my people. For I have wanted you to prosper, but many of the things have a pull on you. For the world's goods are not the things of my kingdom. My kingdom is not of this world, and yet my people, you are in this world but not of it.

Nothing will prevent Me from helping you through all the struggles in this life. The cattle are mine and the world is mine, and yet the enemy has polluted much that you see around you. For the locust and the cankerworm have come and have eaten from my people. But I tell you that I will repay. I will give back to my people that which has been stolen. No longer will you be destitute, says the Lord. No longer will you be begging for bread.

ALLOW THE WIND TO DO ITS WORK IN YOUR LIVES



5/4/19

And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42:10

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness. Malachi 3

"I have overcome, says the Lord. I have overcome the trials of this life. I have said in this world you would have tribulation, but I have also said that I will be with you through all these things. For truly, everyone meets trials and tribulations; they come to every man or woman in this world. But it is how you face these trials that is important. For I use them to mold and shape you. Do not be like a tree whose branch breaks in the wind, but rather allow that limb to move with that wind that blows against it. For these trials come to mold you into the person that I AM making in you. The fire is used to mold and shape. One who works with metal uses a forge to mold and shape, and through a great heat that metal changes its appearance.

I AM your heavenly Father and I control the heat. Allow Me to mold and shape you into that vessel that I desire. You know of what happened to the ancient patriarch Job, and how most everything was taken away from him. But in the end he was given back double of what had been taken away. Allow the wind to do its work in your lives. Then you will be able to face any trouble. Then you will be brought to completion on that day that you meet Me."

"I WILL COME WITH A SWORD"



4/28/19

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. 10

4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. Zechariah 14

"For on that day I will come through the clouds. I will come and my feet will rest upon the Mount of Olives. I will come, not as a man of peace but as a king who will separate the wheat from the straw. I have come to separate the goats from the sheep. I have come with a sword and to create division, for whoever is against Me will be separated on that day.

On that day you will weep and yet many others will rejoice. You have looked for Me to come and yet even though the time is rapidly approaching, that time will only come when the man of perdition has wrought his destructive reign. And yet those who trust in Me will have found that I have kept them safely. But indeed, many trials are ahead for you. These trials will test you beyond what you may think that you could endure. You will be stretched, and you will be given places to hide amid the storms. "

AS A MAN THINKETH



4/26/19

7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7

"What do you think about during the day? For I tell you that your thought life dictates how you will feel about certain things. It is said that 'As a man thinketh so he is.' Your thoughts can carry you to all kinds of places and things. Learn to meditate upon my word. For in it are found the ways of truth. Let that truth nourish you. Let that truth keep you throughout the day. If you nourish yourself with my word you will be like a tree that is standing by the water, for that tree will not wither. The noon day sun will not scorch it. It bringeth forth its fruit in its season. There are many of my people who have not withstood the trials that have come into their lives. If they had had my word tucked away in them then they would have been able to face those problems. When you feed upon the things of this world, what little fruit you do have will slowly begin to decay. The mind is a fleeting thing and it is always searching. But let it have an anchor, something to grab a hold of. Then its resting place will be found in my word."

TAKE HEED THAT YOU ARE NOT BUILDING UPON A BROKEN BEDROCK



4/23/19

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 1 Cor. 3

"What is the ground on which you have built your belief in Me? Is the bedrock strong, or has it crumbled under the many voices that you have been hearing in this hour? Take heed that you are not building upon a broken bedrock. Take heed that many things are not seeping in through the cracks there.

For many of you have been building with wood or straw, and I tell you that your materials will not last. Only use the materials that I have told you to build with. And what are those materials, you may ask--they are the precious stones from my kingdom. Those stones are embedded in faith, love, and hope. For everything else that you build with will not last forever. For many are still building with the things of this world around them. And truly, I also tell you, that many prophets are building with the stones of fear. For some have heard the words of another, and they have picked them up, and have troweled them into the building.

You are not to fear, my people. For if you remain steadfast and trusting in Me until the end, I will surely bring you through these days ahead."

WALK WITH ME, TAKE MY HAND AND I WILL TELL YOU WHAT IS TO COME



4/20/19

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16

(This word began and continued with a vision of the Lord walking with me along a deserted beach. He would continue to speak of the ocean, the mountains, and then what was to come. He walks beside us; may we hear His voice and take His hand.)

"Who would know Me on this day? Who would come to Me with unbridled arms and seek Me above else? For many seek Me in my word and they find truth there, but who has found Me by the still waters? Who has found Me among the tall evergreens and mountains? Who has found Me in the dead of the night hours?

Take my hand and walk with Me beside the beach. Hear the waters as they come pounding against the shoreline. Consider the great expanse of the ocean and know that I created all of this. Now continue to walk with Me here. Grab my hand and learn of Me. For I tell you that there is much trouble ahead. They came and bore Me up upon a cross and I suffered much for mankind in that hour. I did this so that you would have life in Me. But the time is coming when they will treat you as they treated Me. For I have said that in this world you would face tribulations, and because they hated Me they will also hate you. And so far you have been hidden in Me; but the time is coming when you will be hated by all men. For a great separation is coming. For I AM separating the sheep from the goats. But be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.

Now look upon this mountain that is in front of you: You see its rugged face and how it looms large among everything else around it? I say that you will speak to those mountains and they will surely be cast into the sea. But not all troubles and not all mountains are to be cast into the sea. For some are used to shape and mold you.

Now continue walking with Me. You must study to know my word. For the time will come when that very written word may be taken from you. And you must know it; you must be able to recall it. For the world grows ever darker, and the evil one knows that his time is near. On that day many things around you will have changed. For some of the mountains will literally fall into the sea, and your cities will be left to be but a piece of what they are today. Your government will be taken over, but those who endure to the end will be saved.

Many preach a false thing, for they say that you will be taken out of this present trouble and age. Many have deceived man into believing this. But I tell you that I will gather my own unto myself, and throughout all of the troubles that are coming I will surely keep you tucked under my wings.

Now go about your days but be prepared for the days ahead. "

10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. John 14

"Speak unto the mountains that are around you. For the great trials and tribulations are coming to you, my people. There will be much turmoil in the days ahead, for as a ship would be tossed to and fro upon the sea, so will your lives be in the coming times ahead. But even with the rise of these great trials and tribulations, there will be a renewed spirit that I will give unto you, my people. For you will be pulled this way and that, and you will be stretched beyond that which you think that you could endure, but afterwards you will rise like new warriors who have come out of many battles.

For think not that I have come to leave you comfortless, for my great Spirit will unfold you. My very wings will overshadow you. For when the world is running to and fro and they are feeling overwhelmed by the turmoil that is all around them, you my people, will be as a light to them. This will be the time of great miracles; this will be the time also of the upheavals of the nations around you.

For even as a great cloud of darkness is coming, a greater expanse of my light will unfold upon those who are mine. For the darkness has never understood the light. But even so, there will be the spread of wickedness like as never been seen before. For I have said that in the last days perilous times will come. For as it was in the days of Noah so it shall be again."

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matt. 24

RUN THE RACE



4/5/19

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

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. 2 Tim 2

"There is no right way to enter into my chambers, says the Lord. But you must have a clean heart. You must put aside your grievances with one another. You must learn to forgive, for then when you do this then I will make your slate as white as snow. Run the race that is set before you. Let go of everything that so easily clings to you. But pace yourselves; for the race that you are running is not a sprint but it calls for a long distance runner.

This life that you are now a part of, is the life that I have now called you to. Don't try to copy the road or the path of another for each one of you has your own calling or path to make. I have created each one of you as a unique creation. There are many different types of vessels in my house. Some of these are for ignoble purposes and some for noble. Find your place among those vessels that are for my use. "

DON'T FOLLOW THOSE WHO ARE FALSE--LEARN TO DISCERN WHAT IS TRUE



3/30/19

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.” John 10

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2 Cor. 11

11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matt. 24

"Do you say that you know Me as any other one, would say the Lord? For those that say that they know Me, know Me as they wish that they would know Me. For priest and prophet alike only know Me, as they wish they would know Me. But I AM known by those who would come to Me, and approach my throne.For I tell you that all can know Me. But I tell you that you must learn to hear my voice.

Truly my sheep can hear my voice but they must not entertain another one. For many false spirits have come into the world. Some masquerade to be the true one, and yet those with a discerning ear can know the true one from the false.

Oh how I long for my children to know Me. Oh how I would long just to sit with Me and learn from Me! But how can you learn to know Me when you spend so much time with the world? You must shun the ways of the world, for much of it keeps you from knowing Me in truth.

What would I compare this generation to? I would say that you have followed the piper, and you have followed his melodies. For they would entertain you. But lo, that piper will lead you along a path, and that way is the way of destruction. Don't listen to those melodies.

But to those who would know my voice, I would say that 'This is the way, walk ye in it.' For indeed, you must know my voice, for in the days that come many will say that they know the truth. For have I not said that many false prophets would come? They will lead you astray, my children. They lead you astray because they 'pretend' to know Me and yet they do not.

I have said that you would know them by their fruits. A good tree is known by its fruits. Examine the fruits of them; and if you would study the scriptures then you would also know better how to examine them.

Beware of those who come to you with fair speech and promise you many things. For these are the charlatans of this world. For with one hand they would promise you many things, and then with the other hand they would steal from you what you have.

For I have come to give you life and that life is the light of men. I have not come to send you away, but rather I have come to receive you unto myself. And yet I must warn you, that there are dark days that are coming. Many prophesy that these dark days will come and that I would leave you comfortless. This is a lie and not the truth! For indeed, I will be a shelter to you, my people. But prepare for these days you must.

For the one who would promise you many things is among you now; and some have followed him. He will take everything from you and leave you with nothing. Some have eyes to see this and yet many others are persuaded by him.

That is all for now. But may you grow richly in my grace, and may you come to know Me fully even as I now know you."

16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt. 7

DELVE DEEP INTO MY SPIRIT



3/27/19

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

7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. Psalm 42

(During this word the Lord showed a pitcher being poured out upon people, and I watched as I saw the oil of the Holy Spirit flowing out upon some. And yet that oil was only been poured out upon the heads of many and not onto the entire body. Then He showed me a river and the people were just wading into the river, and it had only climbed up to their ankles.)

"I tell you my people, you have waited a long time; you have waited a long time for my Spirit. For my Spirit has been poured out in many ways, and so my Spirit has been poured out. But I tell you that in these very last days there will be immeasurably more. For the oil has been poured out and it has come upon the heads of many, but now it will begin to flow like a river. For many of you have just been in the shallow part of the river. You have felt the river about your feet.

But you have not yet come out into the depths. You have stayed very near the shoreline; but the deeper ocean awaits you. Come out into those places. Do not be afraid to venture out there. For lo, a man would delve deep into an ocean to find a pearl. And yet I tell you, there are many pearls to be found. Delve deep into my Spirit. Go past the breakers. Find and explore the deep caverns. There great treasures await you. "

HOW WOULD A WISE MAN PLAN FOR THESE DAYS?



3/24/19

15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5

“Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.” James 5:3

"As the end of the age approaches, what will you be doing with your time, my people? What will you be doing with making the most of your time? For the wise man or woman knows how to make the most of time on any given day. You would be wise to plan for the days ahead. Consider that time is fleeting; consider that the hourglass is slowly going through its sand.

How would a wise man plan for the future? Would he build the choicest home that he could build? Would he fill it with the most beautiful of furnishings? Would he hoard-up his money and gather unto himself gold and silver? I tell you that your gold and silver will not save you on that day. All your beautiful furnishings and trappings will be moth-ridden or turn to dust.

Surely you say, that you could build a fortress around yourself. On that day when all of the luxurious homes fall into the sea will you hold onto your money bags? Surely, your wealth will save you--no, it will all be swept away in an instant.

And yet then again I ask you---how will you plan for these days?" Some would build great shelters in the ground; others would gather food and guns to save them, and yet will all of this save you from the great onslaught that is coming? You would look to the materials of this world to save you. For when the dust finally settles you will then know the preparation that was needed."

MY TIME IS NOT YOUR TIME



3/21/19

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

"The words that many of my prophets have been speaking will in a moment of time, come to fruition. For many of the things that have been said would seemingly represent a time in the future that has not yet come, but I tell you that that time frame is soon to transpire.
For I tell you that truly that if those words had come forth from my throne then they will come to pass. But man tries to hurry these things; he sees the things playing out in the world around him and says that they are now about to happen. But my time is not your time.

It is all according to my purposes. My prophetic time clock has an hourly time frame different from yours. For I AM beyond the time constraints of your human affairs. But when my book opens up you can be assured that its pages will begin turning."

FOR WHEN THEY SAY PEACE IT WILL BE FAR AWAY FROM THEM


March 15, 2019

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.4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. Psalm 91

"When the world says, 'peace, peace,' it will not be seen. For the world seeks peace but there will never be an everlasting peace until I come back for my own. Many will come saying that they can offer peace but the peace that they would offer you would only be for the moment. For man is bent on war. He seeks to have the things that would keep him at peace using the world's standards. But I give my own a peace that transcends all the troubles of this world. For my peace passes all understanding.

I tell you that a great war is coming, and it will be greater than any war that has ever been. For I have told you many times before that your land will be invaded. They will come from the north and your surveillance system will not recognize them at first. But I would not have you to fear my children. For I will give you a peace even in the midst of all of these things. And that peace will overflow. You will be protected on that day. For nothing will harm you if you are kept under my wings. "

Stephen Hanson

MANY OF THE THINGS THAT SOME HAVE WONDERED ABOUT WILL SUDDENLY COME INTO VIEW



3/13/19

Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. Gen. 22:4

42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

"Can you see off into the distance, my son? For I tell you that on that day that many of the things that some have wondered about will suddenly come into view. Those things that have been spoken, those things that have been prophesied, and those things that have been written down in my word, will surely come to pass.

For this nation will be turned upside down. What may seem right is not right. For even those laws that are now being enacted by your leader that may appear to be right, are not done to protect you, my people. For you are now going down a slippery slope; and many of the guard rails that were once available to you are now being taken away.

For you were once a Republic; you at one time had safeguards that were meant to protect you, but now those things are slowly eroding away. There have always been tyrants in the past, and they ruled for a time and a season but their time was limited.

You have become a den of thieves, says the Lord. For you care very little about the poor and the underprivileged. You build up the wealth of the wicked and you fill their coffers to the full. But on that day your wealth will not satisfy you. I will demand repayment, and your soul will become destitute. For when your great tower tumbles to the ground, the smoke and the ashes will swirl around your head, and I will not hear your cries for help.

For I was hungry and you fed me not. I was thirsty and you gave Me no water to drink. Your tongue will thirst for water and yet you will find none. "

Stephen Hanson

PREPARE YOUR HEARTS FOR THAT DAY



3/9/19

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thess. 5:3

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matt. 25

"There is a restlessness in the air. For some would say that there is peace on the horizon but I tell you that when they tell you this that then sudden destruction would come. For many would proclaim a peace but it is formed in the hearts of some men who know nothing about peace. For this world has suffered many wars, and many men and women have died for the sake of men's agendas. But I tell that a great war is coming, and the ones that have previously come will pale in comparison to this one.

For you will not know true peace until the Son of Man comes to vanquish his foes. For truly you have heard of wars and rumors of wars. You have seen the distasteful acts of many who have no regard for what is good, and right and wholesome. You have seen the rise of birth pangs across the globe; and you have seen the truth of my kingdom preached unto the ends of the globe. You have seen little children begging for food, and the rich sitting upon their thrones of gold. But many will weep and lament on that day, for I will come and they will not be ready.

So prepare your hearts for that day. Devote yourselves to prayer. Seek those things that are above this earth, and if at all possible, strive to be a peace with those who are around you. I come to prepare a bride; I would that she would be washed and ready for Me. But many have fallen into slumber. To those who have fallen asleep, I would say to rekindle that love that you once had for Me.

Watch and be ready, for I AM coming at a time when you know not. But be like those five wise virgins whose lamps were filled and ready. "

Stephen Hanson

THE TIME OF RECKONING HAS COME



3/6/19

For the Lord of hosts will have a day of reckoning Against everyone who is proud and lofty And against everyone who is lifted up, That he may be abased. Isaiah 1:12

Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: Isaiah 30:1

Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord. Jeremiah 23:1-2

"I will tell you this: The time of reckoning has come. For everything that has been spoken down in my word will come to pass. For I have said that the judgments will fall, and they have begun. For many have looked for a political savior. They have looked for someone to lead them to stability; but I tell you that this nation and this land is teetering upon ruin.

Woe to those who have falsely followed a man that says he will make this land great again! Woe to those who believe the lies that have been spread! For those who believe these things are blind guides to many who are around them. You have believed in a lie and that lie has now caused you to believe that up is down and black is white.

The angels are trumpeting a message to the four corners of this globe. For they are to read a decree of what will soon follow. For at that time your homes will not be a shelter to you. Woe to those who have put their trust in the arm of the flesh. I will make a way for my remnant in those days. But woe to the man or woman who has ignored the messages of my true apostles and prophets. "

Stephen Hanson

ON THAT DAY



3/4/19

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. Zechariah 14:4

"You cannot blot out the world around you. You live in a world that is filled with the darkness of man and his deeds. For in the many things that he has done; much of it is through his own means. He has risen to great heights to create the great and tall structures around you. Through the many rivers that he has crossed and the mountains that he has climbed, how many of these have brought him closer to Me?

But on that day all will look upon the One that they have pierced. And on that day it will be too late. For I will come with the great steeds of heaven riding upon that white horse. I will set my feet upon the Mount of Olives and then come to destroy the wickedness of the one who has come to deceive my people.

But will you be ready my people? Will you be ready for the One that comes to you? Will your lamps be trimmed and ready? Will my bride be ready for my coming? For the moon and the stars will fall on that day, and great and terrible things will come upon your land and the earth. But I will hold my own in the palm of my hand. I will keep them tucked safely against my breast.

There are many deceivers that have come. There are many that claim to know Me and yet they don't. But purify yourselves for the coming of that day. "
