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

We as people see the world from our own vantage point and time. From the early morning hours, to the afternoon, and continued into the late evening, man has always documented his various activities. Man is aware of the seasons, and this has helped him greatly, to know when to plant, and when to harvest. His farming and cultivation has been uniquely tied to the seasons, and the sun.

But we are always in a hurry to get to this concert or that activity. We stress and fume because of traffic, or obstacles, that might cause us to be late. And of course, our jobs start and end at a certain time each day. Weddings and funerals are set to begin at a specified time and place. Without having our schedules marked for certain times and places, would cause great chaos, and we wouldn’t know when something began, nor when it ended.

We turn our clocks back in the fall, and we spring forward every year. We mark our calendars for certain holidays, birthdays, and other days of remembrance. We also have definite days for specific biblical feasts that are to be remembered that have been set down for observance.

And yet our time that we live upon this earth is but a short measure to God. For while we have been living out our existence, even for eighty years or more, he was still watching our life pass before him. We are but a mist, a cloud, that passes before his eyes. And yet this is not to diminish his great love for us, but merely to illustrate how our finite existence compares with his everlasting character.

God’s time table is much different than ours. He dwells outside of time, and he sees the beginning and the end all at once. All throughout man’s history, and documented biblical accounts, God has seen how a man or a woman would deliver a nation, leave a country, or prophesy to many. He saw their potential before they had just begun. He saw their finished work, in spite of all the obstacles and weaknesses that they would face.

Our concept of time is limited to our finite minds. It is quite a quandary to consider that God has no beginning for he was here along with the Son and the Spirit, before all things. For he was here before anything ever was, and he will be here from everlasting unto everlasting. Time is not measured with him as it is with us. Man compartmentalizes his life’s moments and deeds. He uses a yardstick and the minutes and seconds on a clock---but the Father’s time table is other-dimensional. The hands on his dial move ever so slowly, as he would want all to come to him. And yet the “time” will come when the hourglass will finally empty, and we will have to make a decision.

Our earth and everything in it, will eventually be done away with. For at that time, the former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. At that time, when new heavens and a new earth are created, then we will live forever in God’s other-dimensional period of time. And yet, it won’t be a period of time, but it will rather be for all eternity. And then perhaps we will begin to understand that time has no meaning. For he who was here before the beginning will continue unto everlasting.

Then we will know as we are known, for we will see him face-face.

The Lord would say,

“For…is not time in my hands, says the Lord? I have watched and I have seen Abraham and Isaac. I was here to see Moses deliver the children of Israel from Egypt.

I remember when each of my children were born. I know of all those who have come before you. I set kings into office, and yet many fell into corruption. I have watched empires come and go. I have seen the destruction of Nineveh.

I was here when the great flood covered the earth; and I was here when the earth was repopulated again.

I watched as my Son was born of a virgin, and I watched as he cried in Gethsemane. I watched as he died on a cross and rose again.

And yet, all of these things that have transpired are but a droplet of the time that I have lived. And I know of everything that will transpire in your own lives. I know when you sleep and when you awaken. And I know when you will live your last days upon this earth. “

12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. I Cor. 13:12

3 He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the Lord offerings in righteousness. Malachi 3:3

"Many of you are being stretched way beyond your limits in this hour. And yet I am holding you firmly in my hands. I am seeing what you are made of, says the Lord. When you pass the test you will be much stronger in me. For in the coming months you will need to be much stronger, for what lies ahead.

Many of you have been strong in your own strength. But the arm of the flesh will always fail you.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a line of wooden buckets. He was filling up each bucket with liquid gold. He went from container to container, carefully filling the entire bucket up. And then I saw him take a ladle, and he ever so carefully, scooped out the top layer of the liquid, thus separating the gold from the dross.)

I am separating the dross from the metal, says the Lord. For I am purifying the sons of Levi. You are my own, says the Lord, and I want you to be able to stand in the coming years ahead. Many of you argue about this and that, and I am tired of your petty arguments, says the Lord. For some of you are like children in a playpen. "

"What will this world be like a year from now, you may ask? For the winds will have blown across this land, and another candidate will have been ready to be set in office. But leading up to this time, there will have been much dissension and turmoil. For great difficulties will have arisen because of the election. And the one who will have been set in office, will not be the one that many will have chosen.

The world's stage and its actors are being set upon the great chess board. And soon, each move will bring the game to a rising climax. For whoever holds the queen, holds the greatest advantage. Each player moves according to the plans they've been given. The pons are always scarified in the opening stages.

As any game progresses, it is important to guess your opponent's next move. For strategy and planning is always the key. In time the players will have assembled their boards. And then, the game will commence. "

All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. Isaiah 53: 6

(God offers us a banqueting table to partake of, and yet many look elsewhere to feed their spirits with the goods of this world. Eventually, those that look elsewhere, will discover that what they have eaten becomes like poison to their bodies. His pastures are green, and all the other ones, may look green and luscious, but they actually are barren and lifeless.)

"Where are my own in this hour? My people, many of you have forsaken me. For you go here and there, sampling the food from different pastures.

Is my garden no longer a delight for you? What food would satisfy you, I would ask?

For you have abandoned the temple of my son. You have gone after and have eaten the forsaken food.

My food would have satisfied you if you have eaten it. But no, you would rather have partaken of the world's goods. You have joined yourselves to the harlot.

Do you not know that friendship with the world means enmity with Me? You have mixed a drink that will poison you eventually.

But I offer you a banqueting table, but the time will eventually run out. The table that you now sit at, may seem to satisfy you now, but it will become a bitter cup. "

12 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 1

"The race is not to the swift, or to the strong. For all are competing in this race of life. But I tell you, that the race is not over. There are still several rounds to go. The baton has been passed down through the years. It was run with vigilance by some. It was run with great fervor by others. Stay in the track that you've been given. Let your feet run with the wings of my angels.

The race will continue until you meet me face-to-face. But will you hear my words said to you? Will you hear, 'Well done, by true and faithful servant?'

Many of you are tired in this race. Many of you have grown weary of the running. Behold, the great cloud of witnesses is watching. Get up and continue in your journey.

Run, with the wind at your back. Let go of all the weights and bondages. Don't be concerned with the others in the race. For surely, all have their rewards."

17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Luke 8
“I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden wealth of secret places, So that you may know that it is I,The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name. Isaiah 45

"This year will be the culmination of many things for my people. For those things that once hindered them in the past, will now be removed from them. Those things that have kept you back, those things that have been a road block, will now be done away with.

For you are coming into your own, says the Lord. You are being given back what the locust has stolen.

You have waited and waited, and you have gone on for years waiting. But now, those things that were just seen dimly, will now be seen in the open.

Some doors will open and others will close. For there is a changing of the guard. Now you will see through the door and what lies beyond.

For those things hidden in secret will now be revealed to you. They were cloudy before, but now, a clarity will be seen like never before.

The curtains have been pulled back. Come into the holy of holies my child. For this is the deepest part of my sanctuary. Come past all the trappings that you see there; and come up to that place where I alone dwell.

My sanctuary will stand with all that is going on in the world around you. All will fall on that day. But my place reserved for my servants will stand."

29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23

"For as many that are called, they are also chosen from me, says the Lord. They are chosen to speak for me; to speak as the mountains drip with truth. To speak as the waters rise and fall.

These are those that I called from the foundation of the world. But some shrink back in fear, and don't fulfill their calling fully.

But, I will choose another. For my word must be spoken, says the Lord. It must go out with a resounding sound into all the earth.

For those words will triumph against the enemy. Those words will break the chains of those hidden in darkness.

And they will produce a fire that is ignited. It cannot be held within your breast. Those words will go around the globe. They will give direction and hope to many. They will signal my coming, and they will prepare you for the days ahead."

Stephen Hanson



19 Thus Samuel grew and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fail. I Samuel 3

"Where have all the true messengers gone, would say the Lord? Where are the Moses' and where are the Jeremiahs'?

For have their words been silenced? Have their mouths been muzzled? For surely I would speak in this hour. Surely, my words would not return to me void.

There are many that presume to speak for me. These are those that wag their tongues and speak words from their own spirits. But my true messengers speak a word in and out of season.

For would you 'soft-peddle' the truth? Would you speak only what others would 'want' you to say? For many have itching ears in this hour. The hour is late and they aren't even aware of it.

But when the mountains fall into the sea, and the rivers overflow, will you be ready? Or would you rather have heard the soft words from others?

Don't muzzle those who speak the truth. Don't silence their words, for they are mine alone. For all that speak for me may be ridiculed and forsaken, but they are mine, says the Lord."

He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; Daniel 2:21

(I was sitting and thinking about what the world would be like a year from now. I wondered if the darkness would spread around the world, as I knew it would. We know that things seem to be on the rise with terrorism and other issues, but we also need to know that God himself is and will be a tower to those who come to him. Understand that prophecy often speaks of things that are yet to come. People need to know that those things concerning a breach upon our shores and the other events mentioned in this word, are still a ways off, and yet, the time frame may be closer than we may think. There is always a balance in a word such as this one, for we see God's own protected under his wings, even in the seriousness of the events that are coming. People often ask me if our prayers can divert these things from coming, and while this is true, a time has come where the pendulum has begun to swing and its course is set.)

He said,
"There will be a disruption in the process. The world as you know it will change. A republican won't be elected.

For the system will be broken. Woe to those who make plans about these things. For you don't know which way the tide will be turning. A war will break out and it will be a civil one. For the days of judgment have begun. The entire nation will be in turmoil. There will be shooting and looting in many of the major cities, and brother will hate brother. The colors of the flag will fade on that day. And then the dust will settle; and then the war of wars will begin on another shore. On that day when you open the curtains of your home, the land will be filled with impending doom. But my light will be shed abroad. My children will increase in wisdom on that day. There will be starvation and the poor will out number the rich. And when all seems to be going in this direction, a quietness spreads over the nation; and then the shores are breached.

But many will come to know me on that day. As some flee to the deserts and the rocks, many will find shelter under my wings. Your shelter will not be a building. Your shelter will not be a church. Your shelter will not be with guns and ammo.Your shelter will not be in your strength, but in mine alone. "

Stephen Hanson



Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” 12 even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. Psalm 139

"In the stillness of the day would my people hear my voice? Would they recognize it when I spoke to them? For surely, I do speak in this hour. Do you hear all the sounds around you? You recognize them, because you expect to hear them. But my voice is not of this world. It comes from outside the realms of this world.

Many have sought to find me throughout the ages. They sought to find me in the forests and the woodlands. They sought to find me down lonely streets of the cities. They sought to find me in the deserts. Many sages and men of wisdom found me in the quiet of their own dwellings. They thought to find me in their books of wisdom. They turned the pages and found wisdom and they found truth. But it was just an idea, a concept. But I was always there to be found. I walked with you down those lonely streets. I was there when you sat alone on that pew. I was there when you sought to find me in the forest. When you went to the desert places, I was there waiting for you to find me.

But you thought that I was there to be found in a certain place. And what you failed to see was that I was always there with you. Yes I was there when the ocean waves lapped against the shore. Yes I was there when you spoke to your young child. I was there when you nursed him as a child. I was there when you held your young ones in your arms. I was there at the deathbed of your mother and father. I am here amidst the violence in the streets. I am here when the innocent die every day. I am here when the cold winter winds blow. I am here when your spouse leaves you and forsakes you. I am here at birth and I am here at death.

And when the cities fall, and the wilderness places are your home, I will be there to speak with you. And when you gaze up at the stars, know that I reside there beyond them."

Stephen Hanson

Here is message from Nov. of 2012 that I think is pertinent to us even today, more and more.


Nov. 14, 2012

Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul? I Cor. 1:13

"This election has brought out many things in people...It has shown where people's hearts truly are. What some think is right is truly wrong. For truly, you would know a tree by its fruits. When you are so quick to judge one, what is the fruit that you have within yourself?

The boat is rocking; the ship of America is shifting back and forth. For in these days a great dissent is happening. For your entire nation will be reduced to a number of states. For truly, the nation will be split across the country...The entire nation will be in revolt, but how will they lead, and how will they govern a people who have been split into so many factions?

The nation will be divided in so many ways. Civil unrest will be the norm. Military factions will be spread across the land. Violence will erupt in the streets. You will see fires and explosions break-out in such cities as Chicago. Phoenix, Arizona will have chaos and dissent. Woe to those who put their faith in guns and armory. Woe to those who sit in high places .For you once thought you were the land of the free and the home of the brave. And when all these things are happening; when the dissent has reached its highest, then your land will come under attack.

But I have been preparing a people for this very hour. They have not listened to the voices of dissent. They have not given into anger and hatred. But instead, they have clothed themselves with my spirit. For the land will be changed forever. But look forward to the new kingdom. Look towards those walls that have the names of my original twelve tribes. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



8 And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. John 8: 8-9

"There is a divided land in your midst, would say the Lord. I AM drawing a line in the sand. There is a line being drawn in the land between many different factions.

There is hatred. There is prejudice; and there is the worst kind of hatred, even among my own. I have called you to love all kind of men and women. It doesn't matter what the color of their skin, or even of their background. For all of them are living human beings.

It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor. It doesn't matter if you are black or white, or red or brown. I tell you that once an entire nation tried to form a perfect race. Millions of my own people, the Jews, were exterminated. There is so much hatred, and there is so much discrimination.

The land will be filled-up. Your forerunner will lose ground at the appointed time. There will be more bloodshed. There will be fighting in the street---even upon the steps of the White House, for your nation is going to be turned upside down.

Where is the one they would follow? You stand upon a precipice. "

Stephen Hanson


And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. Rev. 19:11

"There is coming a time when all that you now see will be changed before you. For the earth and its configuration will take on a new design. For after the tumult of those days, after the seas have risen, and the wars have finally come to an end----then the sign of the one upon the horse will be seen. For all will look upon the one whom they have pierced.

And the armies of heaven will be gathered around him. The earth as you know it, will be rolled-up like a map. And the great beast, the one who is called Lucifer, will be bound and will be thrown into the bottomless pit. For your sorrows will come to an end. On that day you will look back and know that all has been done away with. For the end is greater than the beginning. All that you've wondered about, and all that you have hoped for, will come to pass on that day.

So look past all the troubles and cares of this world. Look past the violence and greed, and know that I hold the entire world in my hands. You will fight many battles before this time, and you will be victorious if you hold on to the end.

I will see you through until the end of time, says the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18 19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5

"On a day when many of you will be with friends and family celebrating Thanksgiving, remember what you are to be thankful for. For as the dark days approach, and the winds blow across this nation, you will look back upon the times that you had.

For truly, the greatest things to be thankful for, are friends and family. For indeed, difficult days are ahead. They will be like nothing that has happened before, nor will they be like this ever again.

Live as wise, and not unwise. Remain tuned-in to my spirit. For you will need to know my voice more and more as the days approach. For every day is a gift. Every day brings you closer to the end of all things. The world as you know it, is in turmoil. Evil has reached a height where it has no regard for human life. The innocence of many fall prey to the devices of these things.

Many around the world wander in search for the basic necessities of life. Do not take for granted for what you now have. For much of what you now have could be taken away from you. While it is wise to plan for the future, do not lay up treasures for yourselves that could easily rot or rust. For these things do not last; they drift away and soon, are gone. But instead, seek those things that are above. For those things are everlasting.

Do not fear the world's calamity. But instead, look to me as the one who will see you through these days. For the world's players are maneuvering. They are like chessmen on a board. In the end, just a few players will be left. For when the queen is taken, then much of the power is left for the weaker ones.

For on that day when the seas are breached. The day will be dark and gloomy, and the attack will come in the middle of the night. I will not leave you alone without a warning. And the battle will wage on for a long time. The eagle will fall on that day. But out of the dust and the ashes, a new people will emerge. And then those men of old will emerge---those called for a time like that.

And many will come to know me on that day, and those held in captivity will be freed. Even in the darkness, the light will be seen from above. Many signs and wonders will be wrought through the enemy. But upon those called upon as my servants in that hour, the serpents will be held under their feet. Across the land the darkness will rise and separate, and the rays of my light will be seen from above.

In spite of the turmoil and the great changes that have taken place, the evil one will be held in check. For he knows that his time is short. And then the focus will be taken upon the holy land and great hordes will come upon it.

But these days are still a ways off. So, enjoy your time with family and friends, but live as wise men and women."

Stephen Hanson



11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. 13 So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” Kings 19

I asked the Lord if he was speaking, and then he said:

Yes, I am speaking in this hour. Sometimes I thunder, and other times I come as just a whisper. I speak in the middle of the night. I speak as the waves roll across the shoreline. I speak in the deep places of the forest.

But there are few that truly listen to me; very few truly know my voice. Some mistake my voice for their own. But those who truly know my voice, walk with me, hand-in-hand. They are like Enoch. For when the dark days come, whose voice will you listen to in that hour?

When the buildings topple and the cities are set on fire, will you listen to the one that speaks to you then? Will your leader's voices have the answers? When those who have spoken from the pulpits have been dismayed, will you find another to listen to?

My voice will lead you in that hour. I will be a great light in a dark place for you. But you need to be prepared and to know my voice for you now. You need to be trained in knowing what is true and what is not. For now, the time has come for strong meat, and the time for milk has been done away with."

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Tim. 3

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matt. 24

"These are signs of the end. For terrorism will be on the rise around the world. For the world has become a dangerous place. The evil in men's hearts has spread to such an extent that some don't have any value of human life.

I have said that the love of many would wax cold. For their hearts are cold and they seek vengeance. A great fire will erupt in my servants in this hour. For I will repay, says the Lord. I will repay for the slaughter of the innocents. I will bring calamity upon those who have caused evil. For those who live by the sword will die by the sword.

But I tell you that you live in a fallen world. It has been so ever since Cain killed Abel. Murder is in the heart of some, and the hatred thereof, comes from the very bowels of hell.

But my son came to give you a new heart; and that heart would not strive with one another. I have said to love your enemies; and yet, justice is in my hand alone.

When I come back upon the earth, will I find faith? Will I find hatred, or will I find love for one another? "

Stephen Hanson



32 And what shall I more say? for the time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah; of David and Samuel and the prophets:33 who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, waxed mighty in war, turned to flight armies of aliens. 35 Women received their dead by a resurrection: and others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:36 and others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:37 they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, they were tempted, they were slain with the sword: they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38 (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves, and the holes of the earth.3 9 And these all, having had witness borne to them through their faith, received not the promise, 40 God having provided some better thing concerning us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect. Hebrews 11

"And now people of God, listen to me, for I will tell you of the days of old.

For in the past I moved upon my people. They performed great miracles in my name. They took upon armies with merely the jawbone of an ass. They saw into the enemies' camp, and children were given their life back again.

They spoke, and their words did not fall to the ground. They gathered my people, and the waters were parted for them. Many miracles were wrought in my name. And now there is a church that sings songs about these things as if they were written down in a story book. I tell you that they happened and they can happen still.

For the waters will again, be lifted in my name. The dead will be given life again. You will see into the enemies' camp, and great feats of strength and wisdom will be wrought.

These things have not ceased. The book has not been closed to them. "

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

"Once my people danced and sang to me in the open fields. They sang to me and remembered how I had brought them to the promised land. And now, many of you are wondering where that land is. You look out into the distance, over the hills and the valleys. But I tell you that it is not a distant place. For it is right near you.

The promised land is where you believe in my promises. It is where you live above the troubles of this world. It is a place in my spirit where you can be enraptured by my presence. It is a place where the cares of this world float away.

For in this promised land you are hidden under my wings. You are in the hollow of my hands. For in this promised land, the terror will not come near your tent, nor the fowler or any other pestilence. The mountains will quake, and the seas will rise, but if you are in my promised land, then you will remain safe from the destruction that is around you."

“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog (Middle Europe – Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, Germany), the chief prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk), and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal… Persia (Iran), Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer (France & Germany), and all his bands; the house of Togarmah (Caucasus region) of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.” (Ezekiel 38:2-3, 5–6)

(Yesterday, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about Russia and some of the recent activities associated with their country. Understand that these things will happen at some point and time, but not in the immediate future, but even so, perhaps in our own life time. Please note that the above-mentioned scripture identifies the present countries in the world today, as seen in the biblical text.)

"I tell you that this is the beginning of the take-over of the United States.

For the maneuvers that Russia is taking will in time, culminate in a union with China. They Bear has definite plans of taking over, but these things are still a "while off."

These things are still a ways off, but when the time occurs, you will need to be able to hear my voice clearly. For there will be many distractions, and having your ears tuned to my Spirit, will be paramount.

For the world will be a difficult place on that day; and you will need all the courage and wisdom to deal with it. Don't be swayed by the voices of others. For there are many fear-mongers and others who don't follow after my voice."

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Rev. 20:12

"What will be said about your life when you come to meet me? Will I be able to say, 'Well done my good and faithful servant?'

Will you have had a heart that was driven towards me? Will you have been one that looked after the needs of the poor? Will you have been driven by your own desires or mine? Will you have taken the narrow road ahead, or will you have taken the wide road to destruction?

You see, your life is a book; and it will speak volumes on that day. The books will be opened on that day. And many will wonder at the things that they have done, and that they have left undone.

I have given you many choices in this life, and many of your choices are not mine, says the Lord. You are covered by the blood of my Son, and your short-comings are forgiven. But your lives will be viewed as a panorama, as a movie that is projected.

May your lives be pleasing to me. May they shine forth as the noon-day sun. For some will not inherit eternal life. Theirs will be the dark caverns and the gloomy chambers where the light never penetrates. "

13 But the one who perseveres to the end will be saved. Matt. 24

"Will you be ready? Will you be ready when the sun has refused to shine? Will you be ready when there is darkness all around you? Will you be ready when the cities are left in ruins? Will you be ready when many of your friends have left you? Will you be ready when you walk upon the earth and faith is not to be found? And yet, there will be beacons of light where many will go to on that day.

My people, you are asked to endure unto that day. You are asked to endure past the wars. You are asked to endure past the collapse of nations. You are asked to endure when many have been deceived and have left you. You are asked to endure when you are persecuted for righteousness sake.

When the churches have been taken over by others, you are asked to endure. Even when your families don't believe you, you are asked to endure. Endure to the end, and you will be given a crown of life."

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; I Tim. 2:5

3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, and having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and bedecked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication; 5 and upon her forehead was a name written: Mystery, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth. Rev. 17

"I tell you that this is the beginning of the end. For the powers behind this recent trip to the United States will bring about the institution that the great harlot desires.

Don't be deceived, for this ordeal will usher in the one world government. This is the beginning; and then the lines will be drawn up. For there is only One God, and one man who is Jesus Christ, who is the mediator between God and man. You can't blend all of the religions into one. The world will flood to the deception of these powers.

This is he whom you have wondered about. Goodness can be clothed in deceit. Humility can be a pretentious thing. Watch and pray, for a great cloud of deceit hangs over the world. Those who are wise will discern these things. "

There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of the different political figures on stage. Each one of them was holding a particular instrument, and then one at a time, he or she would begin to play on it. Each person had their own instrument and song, and each one of them thought theirs was the best.)

"This land is in turmoil because there are so many voices. There are so many voices that are pointing to what should be done for the country. I tell you that none of the songs that are being played out on stage will take care of the sickness and the disease that is in the land. They have their own ideas but they are just "man's ideas."

You oh land that was once called the land of the free and the home of the brave, you have lost your way, and your advisors have no light to show you the way.

They pretend to have great ideas and solutions, but they are just singing their "own melodies."

But I tell you that their ideas, no matter how great they are, will not bring America to a place of repentance. Their ideas fall way short of my glory. For they are merely candidates purporting their own agendas. They parade like peacocks, especially one whose pride will eventually bring him down."

"You shall not oppress a stranger, since you yourselves know the feelings of a stranger, for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt. Exodus 23:9

'The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:34

"What do the nations cry when they are reaching out to me? What is the sound of the thousands who are escaping from their homeland?

You who live in luxury and ease; have you traveled long miles looking for food and shelter? You, who live in your comfortable homes, how well would you fare when faced with the dangers on every side? Would you continue on, carrying your children through mud and rain? Would you continue on your march as guns and barbed wire marked your way?

You, oh land that has known of plenty and ease; in time much will be taken from you. You complain about things that pale in comparison that many would reach for in their lives. If you traveled long hours, in search for just food and water, would you still complain about your luxuries?

But on that day when you do lose your freedoms, will you then look back and remember what you once had? "

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 winnowers that shall fan her, and shall empty her land; for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about. Jeremiah 51

"What are the signs of this generation on the earth? What are the sign posts that you are seeing that would point to my return? Are you ready for the things that are coming, would say the Lord? Have you listened to my watchmen and prophets who have pointed the way; or have you buried your head in the sand?

Will I leave the land untouched? Surely, I will bless this nation, you have said. There is a great assembling together. For they come on that day from the east. Will your shelter be found in me? How have you prepared for that day? Will you find yourselves hidden amongst the rocks and the trees, or will you arm yourselves with heavy artillery?

Surely, these things will not come to such a great nation as this! Surely, our government and army will find a way to protect us. Surely, our prayers will protect us on that day. Surely, our beautiful churches will offer a haven. Have we not humbled ourselves and prayed? Have we not done all that you have asked of us? I tell you, that the pendulum has started, and it will begin its motion. "

I will sing a new song unto Thee, O God; upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto Thee. Psalm 144:9

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? Psalm 24:3

"Where are those who have come into my sanctuary? Who are these that "appear" to worship me? They stand in a church made with the hands of man, and they sing their songs to me. But are they singing them to me, or about me?

David sang songs to me. He lifted up his harp and sang songs about the rocks and the fields. He poured forth his heart. He sang as an orchestra would play their melodies unto me. Now your songs come from books, and they are not written on the tablets of your hearts. But now there is pomp and circumstance.

Would that you would sing a new song unto me; that it would spring up from your own heart. That it would speak of the things that I have done for you. That it would come from your own heart; that it would pour forth unto gratitude and repentance.

That it would come from a heart that has sat before me. That it would come from a heart that has wept before me. But you are a people who has not known me. You speak about me, and your sermons tell of my wonderous deeds. They speak of a God from the past. But I AM in the present. I AM alive and I AM not just as one that is written about. But to those who know me, I will make myself known.

Come into my sanctuary. For my sanctuary is not found in your houses of stone. I would take up an abode in your heart. "

2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. Joel 2:2

"A day of darkness is soon coming to all the earth. A day when many will cry out to me. For the winds of change are coming. The day that has been long prophesied will come. For the world's stage will be caught up in a whirlwind. The signs are all around you; and yet many of my children are blind to these things.

For in this upcoming season, great turmoil will be seen. For the sins of this nation have reached my throne. All seems to be moving at a regular pace, but I tell you that my pale horse is soon to ride.

My angels stand ready for my commands, and when I give the word, my judgments will fall. But woe to those who are not ready for these things. For it will come with a severe strike of my hand. "

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7
"What will you do when danger strikes? What will you do when you have no one else to count on? What will you do when your government system fails? Will you run to your pastor on that day? Surely, your underground shelter will save you. Surely, your stockpiles of food and grain will keep you safe. Will your guns save you from the calamity that is to come? Surely, you will find these answers in your library. Or better yet, maybe your smartphones will aid you on that day.

But when the power grid has failed and your favorite radio hosts are gone, perhaps then you will know what to do. For surely, the floods will come. Surely, the land will be breached. But I will have a people who will stand erect, and their light will shine forth like the noon-day sun."

I> For there shall arise false christs and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt. 24:24

"The end of the age is upon you at this time. For the signs are everywhere. How long will I tarry? And when I return, will I find faith upon the earth? For many would follow after a man during this time. For men will always fail you. This is a time when some will arise saying that they are the Christ. And I tell you that many will fall in the coming years. And I have said if possible, that even some of the elect will fall. You must remain true and faithful. The tests come to see if your faith is true like gold in me. For those who waver will be like a tree blowing in the wind. My eye is ever watchful. Would your eye be ever watchful as well."

3 Let no man deceive you by any means, for that Day shall not come, unless there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 2 Thess. 2:3

(As the Lord was speaking this message to me, I saw the land dark and barren. The sky above was darker than any nightmare could be, and there were tanks and various things moving upon the land. For a season the face of Obama was seen off to the side, before all of this occured, but then it vanished, as someone else had taken the stage. I sensed that the Lord was saying to me that when the land is taken over and breached by other forces, then that one doomed to perdition will arise and take over the land in the United States. It is still a while off for this to occur, but while we still have some time to prepare and to consider what lies ahead, these things will come in the not-too-distant future.)

(These types of things have been paved with very much speculation and conspiracy, but we know that this man, and individual, will arise at the given time. But those who are wise will not be taken by surprise. )

"I tell you that he is not the anti-christ, but he is someone who I have chosen to bring judgment upon this land.

The next one that comes will be the one that takes over the world. For the one to come will be the deceiver; and he will broker a deal with the false prophet.

And you oh land that once was free, will be thrust into a war upon your borders. And then the land will become desolute. People will be running to and fro; and many will take the sign that is upon them. You oh land that once was free, will be hemmed-in on every border. But many who have known me will shine forth like lights in a dark land. "
