4But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. 1 Thessalonians 5:4-6

9Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. 10Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him[c] to make him stumble. 11But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him. 1 John 2:9

“I tell you that my sons and daughters will go onto great feats and exploits of my spirit. For as the days grow darker, these signs will follow. For in the greatest darkness my light will be stronger still. “

(I saw in the spirit a man who held a lantern and he was walking through a cave of some sort. The lantern gave forth enough light that he could still see his way through the darkness in front of him. Then the scene changed, and he was still carrying the lantern, but he was crossing over a great chasm. He was walking very carefully on a large tree pole of sort that would allow him to get to the other side. As he was walking, I looked below and noticed that there was nothing but gray clouds and a mist beneath. Then a great claw-like hand of some sort, was attempting to keep the traveler from crossing onto the other side. The scene then faded…)

“I tell you that as the days grow darker you will need more and more of my light. Remember that I have the full storage of light within my spirit. I will guide you through difficult days, but you will be sustained. You will walk through a precipice between this world and the next. The enemy knows of the dangers, but he cannot touch the light or the spirit that is within you. For those who live in darkness, their darkness will grow darker and darker. “

11 "I overthrew some of you as I [a] overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. You were like a burning stick snatched from the fire, yet you have not returned to me," declares the LORD. Amos 4:10-12

“There are many things in the hearts of my people in this hour. Many have questions about the fulfillment of prophecy. I tell you that those who hear from my throne, have a mandate to speak my word without compromise. “

“Are there conditions set upon prophecy? I tell you that there are. But I also tell you that there are some things that are set in stone. You know by example that I extended the life of King Hezekiah. You also know that the people of Nineveh were saved. But when a nation has been warned repeatedly again and again, and they have not turned from their evil ways, then my entire judgment will fall. Some say, “Would a loving God do this?” I tell you, does a loving God want sin to continue in your lives? “

“Many have prayed for this nation to return to Me. Do you remember my servant Abraham when he spoke to Me about Sodom and Gomorrah? But I tell you that the size of Sodom and Gomorrah is nothing in comparison with America. How many righteous would I need to find in order to spare them? And those who say that they are righteous are not. How do you change the direction of a moving freight train? How many would it take to bring about the movement of this United States? How many crusades? How many TV shows? The problem runs deeper than you can even imagine.”

“Does prayer change things? I tell you that it does; but I tell you again, some things are set in stone. “

(We know from scripture that prayer and action can affect the outcome of a prophecy. We know from the account of Jonah as he went to Nineveh and also when Isaiah prophesied to King Hezekiah that he would die. Fifteen more years were added to the life of King Hezekiah because he turned to God. But there are instances and examples in scripture where God had made up His mind about the course of events that would take place. I believe that this is also true of our nation. Some may disagree with me about this, but we need to realize that God’s ways are not our man’s ways. There is also a prophetic time table that is laid out for our world. It will happen according to His plan. )

“I tell you that President Bush has fallen in his numbers for those who are for him. There are secret plans at work. There are plans being made to get him out of office. There are many in Washington who would like to see him out. There are secret schemes and plans being made. This new year will bring about many changes. “

“The eagle that has flown as a symbol for the United States will change and will become another symbol. For it has represented freedom and patriotism; but a new bird will arise as a symbol. This new bird represents a new campaign. The new campaign will bring about many changes in the political system. The new campaign will represent a bird that has fallen. For I tell you that America will fall; no amount of prayers will change this fact. For you are on a road to destruction. I have said these things before and you have been warned again and again. The last president for your nation will be a man who has fallen, and soon after the events of those days, the end will come. “

33Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it[a]is near, right at the door. 34I tell you the truth, this generation[b] will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 35Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Matthew 24:33-35

The Lord told me today, and this is not the first time that He has told me this. This is a serious word, and one that I don’t take lightly.

“I want to tell you something about President Bush. There will be strife among many of those in government positions. This will be a year of extreme chaos. These things have been set aside but they will come to the forefront in the new year. “

“Woe to those who follow after the ways of men and not my Spirit. I tell you that this will be a difficult year as many attempt to sort things out. Know that the “times” are in my hands. Everything is progressing as it should. Many think that the events of the last days are far off. I tell you that they have not been aware of the signs. Truly, this generation will not pass away until all of these things will be accomplished. “

8This is why it says: "When he ascended on high, he led captives in his train and gave gifts to men." Eph. 4:8

“I tell you, my people, many of them, have walked long in the wilderness. I tell you that their long journeys are coming to an end. Their series of one trial after another will be lessening. I say these things because judgment has first begun with the household of God. After all of these trials are done then judgment will begin to fall more severely upon the earth. “

(The Lord showed me a scene with a Santa Claus figure driving a sleigh. He was encircling the sky and was whipping his reindeer speedily.)

“This season has been falsely labeled the season of giving gifts. I have come to give gifts to men. Seek Me with all your hearts, for the gifts that I give unto men are for the building-up of the body of Christ. I also tell you that those things that I’ve given unto you will be multiplied over ten times ten. For the journey’s end you will need all the things that I’ve given unto you. You will be satisfied by the brook of my Spirit, and you will be sustained. “

1Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Col. 3:1-3

4The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete. 2 Co. 10: 4-6

“I tell you that the end of the age is upon you. For everything is racing towards that day. Life as you know it will be changing. In other cultures people have known about these things. But man looks to the stars, and other forms, to believe in. You have known about the stock market crash that took place in the earlier part of the last century. I tell you that things in the financial world will take place even worse than that. “

(The Lord showed me a picture of a scene with pyramids and then a Native American one with teepees. I believe that the point here is that even in other cultures and beliefs, one can find that the end of the world is mentioned as an event that will soon come. It is not that we embrace the beliefs of these other cultures, but that we can see that even in their religious systems, the end of the world is mentioned. )

“There is a great gap that is widening in the religious institutions. There is a great gap between those who serve Me for money and those who truly serve Me. Many profit from the word of God in this hour. They have wrongly used their money as a way of gaining assets. Truly, they will be brought down.”

“The great war is upon you; it is the war that takes place in your hearts and minds. For in your hearts and minds is where the real battle is fought. What is your heart and mind thinking about in this hour? For what you think about is what you become. “

16 This is what the LORD says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, 'We will not walk in it.' 17 I appointed watchmen over you and said, 'Listen to the sound of the trumpet!' But you said, 'We will not listen.' 18 Therefore hear, O nations; observe, O witnesses, what will happen to them. Jer. 6:16-18

(During the midst of this word, I saw an image of a King who was pondering these things in his mind. I also saw various images of tanks and other military gear, as they came across the scenery. Lastly, I saw an image of the White House from the front. This was important, because a decision was to be made from there.)

“On the wings of my spirit I will carry my people in these days. I will carry them to places of nourishment. I will uphold them. I will give them strength. “

“For behold, from a distant land they come. Hordes of people are coming. Over the leagues of the sea they have come. What will your generals do in that hour? Will their armies be ready? What will the decision be made from the White House? I tell you, your nation will be taken by surprise. “

“Have your prophets told you the truth about these things? How many have truly stood upon the walls and warned the people? How many prophets speak their own words? How many prophets speak for a profit? Truly, during those days, you will know who has stood up for the truth, but my people will be brought to safety. In spite of these things, I watch over my people, and I will keep them safe. “

27As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him. 1 John 2:26-28

Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. Psalm 20:6

The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Psalm 28:8

“Come to Me all of you who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. I will give you rest in a season of great battles. I tell you the battles have increased for many of my servants. They have increased now because the time is near because this world is being thrown into the last signs that are coming upon the earth. The schemes of the enemy have increased; for he knows that these are the last days. But the anointing that has been given to you will give you great increase. It will sustain you in the days ahead. It will serve you well in the many battles that you face. It is the very thing that covers you in the midst of many trials. It will cover you from head to feet. No gap or crevice of the enemy will be able to creep in. These are the days that you have heard of. You have seen them on your TV screens. The whole entire world is in a state of unrest. The world stands upon a precipice. It stands upon a precipice that will shake it to its roots. What will remain after the shaking? You have been warned about these things; now what will you do with that warning? Grab a hold of that anointing that I give to you. Run the race that is set out before you. Run as you have never run before; and when you have finished running, keep running. “

So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them. Daniel 3 26, 27

(The Lord have this word to me this evening as a reminder to me and others, that He controls the fiery furnace. This was also spoken to me because of the trial that I am presently going through at the school where I teach.)

"I AM the God who lifts everyone out from the miry pit. As King David came to Me in times of battle, so will you my people.  There are many difficulties and trials in this life. The righteous man will have many of them, but I will deliver him out of all of them. This is a time of great testing that I AM bringing many of my people into. You will be tried in the furnace, but I tell you, the heat will not overwhelm you. As my servants were in the fiery furnace and they did not burn up, so it will be with you.  My rod and my staff, they will comfort you.  I will prepare a table for you in the midst of your enemies.  The fiery furnace will burn down to embers.  I control the heat and I know how much each of my servants can handle.  I AM the engineer of this furnace.  There are trials in this life and I know how to use them for my glory.  I AM the God of the furnace and the fire."

29 But Moses replied, "Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD's people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!" Numbers 11:29

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of a man who was approaching Him. He seemed downcast in appearance and seemed to think that he was unworthy. As his head was down and standing before the Lord, I noticed the Lord pick him up and craddle him in His arms. But it was strange because it was as if he were immobilized and couldn't move. He almost seemed like a statue in appearance. Then the Lord was pouring something over his body. With this liquid, He was cleansing him and refreshing him. After this, the man then was in a prone position before the Lord. As his head was bent down in adoration of the Lord, a beautiful robe was then wrapped around him. It was kingly in appearance. Then the vision faded.)

"I tell you, this is the way it is in this hour. Many think that they are not worthy to come before Me. They pretend that they are something else. They clothe themselves in other garments. But I tell you that I will make you as kings and queens before Me. I will give you the clothes of my kingdom. Let Me prepare you and raise you up in this hour. Then you will be as Joshua before the battle. I am creating a Moses generation. I would have that all my people are prophets, but I tell you that not all are. But each of you can come up before Me. I will be as a burning bush before you. I will write my words on the tablets of your hearts. "

9Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Col. 3

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. I Cor. 13:12

“I tell you, my Son gave his life as a ransom for all. He paid the price so that you would not have to. He lived His life and gave it up for all. But I ask you, what are you doing with what He did for you? Have you accepted the fact that He died and rose again? If you accepted the fact that He died and rose again, then you would know that you will be raised up. In the coming ages, my sons and daughters will sit as judges in my kingdom. In this life you will have many trials and tribulations, but I will see you through them. “

“I am working on the perfecting of the saints. I am bringing them unto myself so that they would be changed into the image of my Son. It's all about being changed from glory unto glory. If you don’t come unto Me then you will be changed into the image of the enemy. What is the image that you would want to remain? You look in the mirror each and every day and you see the appearance of your features. But what is the image that you portray unto others? “

“What is the image of my Son? Do you see Him as just the meek and mild Jesus? Do you not know that He is coming back with a sword to judge the world? His appearance will be like the sun and the lightning. Do you know Him as the true and faithful judge? Truly, He is coming back to judge the world, but I tell you that judgment has begun. You have seen the judgment in terms of the wind and other catastrophic events, but you will see it as nations topple. You have entered into a season of divine judgment. You have entered into a season when many will scoff at my name. This is the season when many will wring their hands in fear. For the safety net has been taken away from your country. I tell you, is this the image of the meek and mild Jesus? But I tell you that judgment has come, so that you might come to Me. “

9James, Peter and John, those reputed to be pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. Galatians 2

In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. Ephesians 2:21

“This is the day. This is the day to come forth as pillars in my kingdom. For too long the building has been without support. In ancient times there have been pillars in many of the structures that have been built. They performed a necessary function, but I tell you that over the centuries many of the structures have changed. Man decided that a different format was needed. They decided that no longer were pillars needed. They replaced them with walls. I tell you that the original design of my building has gone long enough without them. I tell you that for too long pastors and teachers have taken on the responsibilities of apostles and prophets. Stay with the function that I’ve called you to do. And then, a glorious building will rise in the last days.”

“I tell you that truly, I am the Chief Cornerstone, but where have I been placed in your building? Am I just a marker that marks the spot? Truly, there are places where you have allowed Me to be that Chief Cornerstone, but I tell you, the stones and the materials of the building are deteriorating. Let Me polish the stones so that again, it will be a healthy building. Then my building will rise and will be what it is called to be.”

1 "On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity. Zechariah 13: 1

God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.Hebrews 2:4

“So, the shaking has begun in this nation, and I tell you that it will continue. The signs have been shown to you as the winds and the rains have blown. But why is it that one nation is experiencing these things more than other places? I tell you that I am purging and cleansing the United States because of her great sins. But as the end approaches and the time is near, the entire world will be brought to her knees. “

“But will man recognize these things as a sign from Me? Will life continue as it always has? I tell you that evil will increase and the sins of many will rise to the skies. I tell you that economic problems and monetary concerns will multiply. The mighty dollar will lose its value as interests rates soar. Those whose interests are brokers and who work in positions in Wall street will wring their hands in desperation.”

“But there is a remnant that I am looking to. I have been purging and cleansing them through a long process. The many trials and tribulations that they have gone through will prepare them for these days. They will be brought to places of safety. They will partake from the food of my table. Many men and women will seek them out because of the spirit that is within them.”

“I tell you that this is the time of great miracles. For you have been to the crusades. You have been to the tent meetings. But in this hour, these miracles and signs will happen in the work place. They will happen on the streets. They will happen along the byways. Little children will be raised up in this hour. For a great harvest is coming, and then the end will come.”

14Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Eph. 4

3As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer 4nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God's work—which is by faith. 5The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1 Timothy 1:3-5

“I tell you that there are some who scoff at the idea that we are living in the last days. There are some who say that these things are far off into the distant future. I tell you that the future is NOW. I tell you that these are the days that many of my prophets had looked into. They wanted to discern and understand the days that you are now living in. “

“There are many in my church that know and understand that these are the last days. They know and understand these things because they are plainly seen in the events that are taking place around them. But even so, they may not know Me as intimately as they should. While these things are important it is far more important to know Me. Who is there among you who knows Me and yet is preparing the people? “

“I also say that this is a time of great confusion for some within the body of Christ. For there are many among you who argue about controversial matters. You argue about “when” I am coming back and “how.” Some of you split hairs about these doctrinal issues. I tell you my people, stick to foundational issues. Stick to those things that are rooted and grounded in Me. And then you will not be carried away with strange and unusual teachings.”

Stephen Hanson
