27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: John 10
"Find your way up through the mountain, through the rocks and the trees. Find your way there past the noise and the confusion.

It is a time in history, when it is more important to hear my voice than at any other time. For there are voices all around you. They are all crying out for your attention. There are the voices of anger and confusion. There are the voices that are proclaiming victory when actually, they have not seen the end of the battle yet.

There are the voices of greed and pompous pride. There are the voices of sorrow and loss. And yet my voice would speak to you way high up above the crowd. It would speak to you from the cliffs and the rocks.It would speak to you way high up above the circle of this earth. It would speak to a nation. It would speak to a land that has been torn asunder. It would say that peace is not to be found in man alone. It would speak to the masses. It would say to you to look past the confusion of these days. It would say to you to look out beyond the horizon. It would say to you to look past the leaders of this age. It would say to you to look past the darkness that is coming. It would say to you to look out past the confines of this world.

It would say to you to not listen to the voices of dissent. It would say to you to not listen to the news reports. But it is time to go into your prayer closets. It is time to spend time with Me in prayer. It is time to know my voice above all others.

It is time. "

11 And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Exodus 17

4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, 5 and said to him, “Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” 6 But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” So Samuel prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. I Samuel 8

"You oh land of America. You who have been free. You have wanted someone who would lead you and give you what you have needed. I tell you that I AM the only one that can give you these things. Israel looked for a king, and I gave into their requests. Their time was bloody and without safety.

And in time, I chose a young lad from the fields; he became one after my own heart. But this is not the time for a David. This is not the time for one after my own heart. You chose and you have been granted your request.

But it is not peace that you will find. He who comes to sit upon that office now, doesn't come to bring peace to the land. For the separation has begun. Your eyes are blinded to those things that will ensue. Watch as war erupts on every front. When they say, 'Peace and safety,' sudden destruction will come upon them.

The land will be brought under another ruler. It is not going to go as one might expect it to go. For the borders will be closed. But the lives of many innocents will have to flee back to their homeland. A tyrant will be at the helm, but it won't last.

But a voice will be heard throughout the land. It will be a voice of those who proclaim freedom to the captives. For the chains will be broken on many. For even though there will be bigotry---even though there will be violence---a light will be seen across the land. Divisions will continue, but some will find a way to find common ground.

For even when there is deep hatred for one another, my Spirit finds a way to seep through the cracks. And even when the divisions reach a deep climax, my warriors will stand in the gap for a nation. But you have entered a new era. You have entered a new history. The things that worked in the past will not work now.

It is time to pray for your nation like at no other time. For when Moses' hands were held up, the battle could still be fought.

Stephen Hanson



It is better to take refuge in the LORD Than to trust in man. Psalm 118:8
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. I Thess. 5:3

Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, And rely on horses, Who trust in chariots because they are many, And in horsemen because they are very strong, But who do not look to the Holy One of Israel, Nor seek the Lord! Isaiah 31:1

“Many people are putting their faith and hope in a person. I tell you that whenever you do this, you will fail. The hope of a nation is not in a person or a candidate, but it is “only” when you find yourselves turning to Me in repentance.

The church is being lulled to sleep by a man who pretends to be something that he is not. But you see, it is not him, but it is the spirit at work behind him. Promises given and hope established, will be turned upside down.

And yet many would say, ‘Have I not chosen this man to lead a nation?’ Is he not the one that many knew would turn the system upside down and bring about the change that is necessary? What about his stance on all these important issues –does that not mean that he was chosen by you?’

I tell you that the winds are blowing across this land. A torn nation cannot be healed by the hands of only one. You cannot merely sweep the ills that have been said and done, under a carpet and expect them to be done away with.

You will have moments of peace and security, but you have come into a time and era when the hands of my judgment cannot be turned back. Do you think that by the hands of a new regime my judgment will be stilled?

The dust will settle and a new year will begin; but what would start as a new beginning will not come as would be expected. “

Stephen Hanson



Thus says the LORD, "Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD. Jeremiah 17:5

It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.9 It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in princes. Psalm 118

"This is how I said it would be, would say the Lord. Many are divided in this land. The land will be split right down the middle. For he who rises to the presidency grasps the reins of a republic that is torn. For would you say that I would make the land great again? I tell you that you have put your faith in man alone. How could it be that you have thought this? The land cannot be healed.

Many are looking to man to heal the land. Why would you think this could be done? Why would you place your faith in the arm of the flesh? Woe to those who say that all will be well. Woe to those who would say that a golden age would come.

It is only by my hand that the seas rise and fall. You are entering a new era. Be careful what you put your faith in."

Stephen Hanson



6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matt. 24

"I tell you that there is chaos ahead. On every corner there will be chaos erupting. For the final outcome of this election will bring out much violence.

For the hatred and the division will spread and will fill the land. It will culminate in a war between two factions. The Civil War in the 1800's will not be unlike this one.

Who can hold the nation together, would say the Lord? The arm of the flesh is not capable. You have entered into one of the last chapters of your history. This is the end of an era, would say the Lord. For the times, they are a 'changing.

A brief moment of peace will begin with the new year, for at first it will appear that with this new regime, the promises of a brighter future are in store. But the climate of the world will have intensified, and wars will have continued. The bear and the dragon will have conspired together; and their plans held in secret will eventually take their course. "

Stephen Hanson



Those who make an image, all of them are useless,And their precious things shall not profit; They are their own witnesses;They neither see nor know, that they may be ashamed.10 Who would form a god or mold an image That profits him nothing?11 Surely all his companions would be ashamed; And the workmen, they are mere men. Let them all be gathered together, Let them stand up; Yet they shall fear,They shall be ashamed together. 12 The blacksmith with the tongs works one in the coals, Fashions it with hammers, And works it with the strength of his arms. Even so, he is hungry, and his strength fails; He drinks no water and is faint. 13 The craftsman stretches out his rule, He marks one out with chalk; He fashions it with a plane, He marks it out with the compass, And makes it like the figure of a man, According to the beauty of a man, that it may remain in the house. 14 He cuts down cedars for himself, And takes the cypress and the oak; He secures it for himself among the trees of the forest. He plants a pine, and the rain nourishes it. 15 Then it shall be for a man to burn, For he will take some of it and warm himself; Yes, he kindles it and bakes bread; Indeed he makes a god and worships it; He makes it a carved image, and falls down to it. 16 He burns half of it in the fire; With this half he eats meat; He roasts a roast, and is satisfied. He even warms himself and says, “Ah! I am warm, I have seen the fire.” 17 And the rest of it he makes into a god, His carved image. He falls down before it and worships it, Prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god!” Isaiah 44 9:17

"During this season of political infighting, know that the fighting has caused many scars in you. Know that your correspondence with your friends, will leave deep scars on you.

For you have surely elevated these things way above your devotion to Me. For the wounds will run deep; and what has happened to your hearts, says the Lord? For you hate this one and love another. These have become like idols to you. For you groom them and shape them, as would anything made out of wood or stone. You are as the disobedient children in Israel to Me.

For you shape and mold these political figures into the devices that would aid you. You set them up on a shelf and give homage to one or the other. I have told you that I AM a jealous God, and that I would have no other gods before Me. Take them down off of the shelf."
Stephen Hanson


This has been a continuing theme from the Lord to me, over the last ten to twelve years. I hesitated to send this message out immediately, as we are dealing with the froth of this upcoming election, and there are so many other things vying for our attention. My heart wants to encourage, but as a prophet I must also be true to the warnings that I am to give, and to be obedient to this. I don't pretend to know when these things will come, but after hearing this as a repeated theme, I know that it must be true, and the time frame must be getting closer. Others have also heard these things from the Lord, and so with a multitude of counselors, there is not only strength, but validity in hearing this. It's important to know that even with the impending seriousness of this message, one needs to know that we can be kept safely under the wings of the Almighty, even though the mountains fall into the sea, or a land is invaded. God had a purpose as Israel was led into captivity, and we know from history, that they were then brought back to their own land. Granted, it is true that America is in no ways like Israel, but the parallel can be seen in that both would similarly be held captive. Many would ask, "Can our prayers avert this from happening," and to that I would say that we have been given countless warnings to change our direction. But His mercy is new every morning, and mercy does triumph over judgment.

‘Cursed is the one who perverts the justice due the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’ Deut. 27:19

It is a joy for the just to do justice, But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity. Proverbs 21:15 1
For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! Galatians 5

Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon;Make the guard strong,Set up the watchmen,Prepare the ambushes.For the Lord has both devised and done What He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon. Jeremiah 51

The outcome of the election is in my hand. The fury of this entire campaigning has brought out the worst in everyone. The wind will blow across this nation in a fury unlike anything before. I have said before that there would be a disruption in the process, and even now you see that developing.

But you oh land, have a grave choice to make; and even now, your choices become more and more important. For when the final one is chosen, the fighting and the whirlwind of activity, will have reached its pinnacle. It is I who lifts up one and casts another one down.

No man or woman can change the direction of this land. It is only through my hand that you live or breathe. I change the course of events in the land, and a win in the political arena will not stop the impending doom that is coming to this land. "What has become of the land? What has become of the land of the free and the home of the brave? A new flag will wave over the capitol. For your freedoms which you've been taking granted for, for a long time, are eventually going to be lost. For you will be falling prey to a hideous scheme.

The very walls of justice will shake on that day. You will have a brief period of freedom and success, and then the land will be purged. For the outside force, the Bear and the Red state of China will invade your land on that day. It will come when you least expect it. For the northern reaches of your land will be breached. You cannot stop the invasion. But you can pray for your own protection, says the Lord.

You can pray that the walls of your homes will be fortified. You can pray that you will find strength under my wings. The arrows that fly by day will not come near your tent. The terror of night will not come near you. I led my people Israel into captivity, and for many long years they were held there; but then they were released.

The next few years will be difficult ones; the stalemates in Washington will continue. But your own in-fighting will be your demise. "

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. 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 55:8-9

25 “Now this is the inscription that was written out: ‘MENĒ, MENĒ, TEKĒL, UPHARSIN.’ 26 This is the interpretation of the message: ‘MENĒ’—God has numbered your kingdom and put an end to it. 27 ‘TEKĒL’—you have been weighed on the scales and found deficient. Daniel 5 “The way that man look at things is not the way that I look at them. For as the wind blows across this nation, a time of great decision is being made. I ask you if your decision will be right in the matter. Will justice be served? Will the balance between good and evil be clear? Will the outcome be to your satisfaction---or will you be forever fighting about it? The time for debating is over. The glory has departed. For I have left you to your own devices. As I said to Belshazzar at this feast----‘you have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting.’

You are entering into a new era---things are not as they were before. For the winds are sweeping across this nation, and they are not the sweet breezes that you think they are. A new regime will have begun. The policies of the predecessor will be like the new one. And you oh land that used to be called the land of the free and the home of the brave, can only go forward and not backwards.”

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Isaiah 45

"What else would you people want to know about this upcoming fall election? For it is going to be unlike any other that has ever happened before.

For there will be riots on every corner. There is a 'stirring' in the hearts of the people. There is dismay in their hearts. The entire system will be held in question; for some will question the process. 'But this is only because of the rhetoric of some'.

You will finally see that I am in control of all these things, says the Lord. For you think that you can control things simply by rising up against the system. But I tell you that I am the one that sets up kings, and takes down another.

You are entering into a time frame where you cannot return back now. For what would you compare this season to, would say the Lord? You shout and cry on every street corner. You complain about this and you complain about that. But how many of you have brought these things to me?

You will reach the end of your capacity to control things. For the nation and the world is in my hands. I cause the sun to come up in the morning, and I bring the moon and the stars out for you to behold.

If I can take care of all of this, then I also have control of an election.

Stephen Hanson



Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass,When the Lord has not commanded it? 38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High That woe and well-being proceed?39 Why should a living man complain, A man for the punishment of his sins? 40 Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord; 41 Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven.42 We have transgressed and rebelled;You have not pardoned.43 You have covered Yourself with anger And pursued us; You have slain and not pitied.44 You have covered Yourself with a cloud,That prayer should not pass through.45 You have made us an offscouring and refuse In the midst of the peoples. Lamentations 3
You, O Lord, remain forever;Your throne from generation to generation.20 Why do You forget us forever, And forsake us for so long a time?21 Turn us back to You, O Lord, and we will be restored; Renew our days as of old,22 Unless You have utterly rejected us,And are very angry with us! Lamentations 5

"I weep over the land, says the Lord. For many of you are looking for a promise of new beginnings, but there is none to be found.

Weep and wail for your children. For civil war will ensue. Woe to you who have prophesied good things. I weep over you as I did with my nation Israel. For the division lines are running deeper and deeper.

I tell you that a winnowing fork is coming upon you. For you will be separated among the peoples. You had once seen my glory fall upon you as a nation, but now they look upon you, and wonder if this is your demise. Many will march on that day. For when the results come in, looting and fighting will ensue.

For this election has brought out your ugliness. You bite and claw at one another. And yet the things that you fling at one another are in your own hearts. Oh ruthless children, to what should I compare you?

Will you return to a brighter day? Will you go back to a former time when everything was well and your land was great? I tell you that you cannot turn back the pages of history. For they are to behold and to look at, but not yet to return to. "

Stephen Hanson


10/8/16 25 And this is the writing that was written, Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin. 26 This is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. 27 Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.

"The world waits in anticipation as the players soon re-enter the arena. What do you expect, oh land that once was called the land of the free and the home of the brave? What great sign of deliverance do you think that either of these two will do for you? You have been on a road to perdition for some time now. The land is filled with bloodshed on every corner, and you think that one person can solve the problem? Oh foolish generation! Oh, foolish land! But if you had chosen ashes and repentance, instead of pride and arrogance, then the direction of your demise would have changed.

The world waits in anticipation---it watches as your land reels back-and-forth like a ship on the stormy seas. Great unrest ensues and deceit and civil unrest, will be the outcome. Those of you who have prophesied bright and sunny days are not hearing from Me. You speak from your own imaginations. You have read the books of your childhood dreams. You have not stood in my council.

What would be the answer to these things that you might seek? What sign post have you followed that would speak of sunny days, rather than calamity for this nation? I have found you wanting...You have been weighed in the balance. But in spite of these things, I still have a remnant, a people who have devoted their lives to Me. They follow not the things of this world, and they choose not to bury their heads in the sand. They will be lights to those who are all around them. They will point to the way, 'This is the way, walk ye in it.' "

Stephen Hanson



The sea has come up over Babylon;She is covered with the multitude of its waves. Jeremiah 51:42

The Spirit of the Lord spoke this to me this morning:

"I tell you that devastation is coming to the land. For those things that you have been preparing for; those things that you have wondered about; those things that you have heard the report of; they are coming, says the Lord.

But I have never left you alone without protection. For even as this hurricane hits the land, so another "great wind" will come to your land. It will come at a time when your land is busy with its affairs on the world's stage. It will come when that new leader sits upon the throne of your land.

For your eyes will be diverted elsewhere. The coastlines will suffer great loss on that day. High-rise buildings will be swept into the sea. The trees will bend and will be uprooted. The voices of my prophets will have warned you, but many of you will have chosen to ignore their warnings.

How will you fortify your land for that day? How will you know when it's about to happen? Will your great stock pile of guns save you on that day? The great angel that stands upon the continent of your land will blow his trumpet on that day; and that sound will be heard around the globe."

Stephen Hanson



But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Gal. 5:15

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. Matt. 10

"Watch and and wait. For the season that is upon you is a season of unrest. It is a season of tension. It is a season of anticipation. It is a season of brother against brother. For you my people, have entered a time frame, when because of your political allegiances, have spewed out hatred and dissension across the land.

Those two players who have been putting forth their agendas, are your Roman fighters. For you are not unlike Rome. You are the spectators, and you watch from your high chairs in the Colosseum. They don't use swords and shields; but their battle is with words.

And who has truly divided the land? Who has brought forth the right cause, would say the Lord? When the dust settles, then what will your conversation be? When all is said and done, will your battle be won and achieved?

I am coming back with a sword. But now the sword has pierced even many of your own hearts. For you wage war even with one another. You bite and claw at one another, just to prove your own point. Now the sword has caused a dividing line. For it divides between many in my body. "

11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Cor. 2:11

"There is a snake that is weaving its way into the lives of my people. It goes to the beat of its own enticing manner. It tries to snake its way into certain areas of your life. It tries to divert your attention from following after Me. It watches and waits in the darkness.
It is a subtle enemy of my people. Like any other small creature, it finds an opening, a crevice, where it can invade your property.
It takes your attention by causing you to watch certain programs. It takes your attention by causing you to read certain books. It can promise many things, but it only delivers death. Whatever your attention is drawn to, that is what becomes a part of you. But if your attention is drawn to Me, then the snake will flee. "

6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. I Tim. 6

32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11

"What is there that many of you face in this hour? What are the things that hold you back,says the Lord? What are the ropes that keep you tied-up and attached to the ground? You are to live beyond this world. You are to set your mind upon things above; for this world and everything in it, is in a process of decay.

And yet, you are 'in this world' and not of it. For there is continual striving after this and that. The world seeks after these things. The world seeks the big house at the top of the hill. The world seeks after the riches of this life.

And yet I've called you to be content in your present situation. I've called you to be content in plenty and in want. But there is so much striving going on around you. There is so much 'wanting this and wanting that.' Indeed, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

And yet, I have riches to give to my own, that the world will never know. There are riches of my kingdom that the world cannot compare to. The things that are coming to the church will cause the world to gasp in wonder. For my sons and daughters will shine on that day. The glory from on high will touch you, and fiery manifestations will be seen in your life. The things of old will come back unto my own. The stories that many of you have read about with Elijah and the prophets, will be seen once more. For the prophets of Baal will cringe as they see these wondrous acts. You will go through deep waters unto dry land, and the fire will not burn you.

Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Ex. 23:1

"As the fall months approach, a season of reflection and yet warning ensues. For during the next season many rumors will be going around. Many rumors will be going around about this upcoming election. There have been many speculations, and there have been many opinions about this race. Your faith will be tested, and a great in-fighting will occur. But hold your ground. Be steady and erect as a soldier in battle.

For the enemy would long to divide many of you. He longs to see you fight and bicker. You need to stand firm in your resolve against him. For the divisions will increase. They are deep-seated, and they have spread to many avenues of your lives. How will you press on, oh soldier of mine?

For you are in the midst of warfare on all sides. Will you put me first even before your friends? A great chasm will open up, even between my believers. I have told you many times that a civil war would erupt; and it will be greater than any civil war has ever been. For brother will hate brother. Churches will be divided. But I ask you to persevere even unto the end. For any runner in a race, runs to get the prize. "

(Many of us are in a position where it seems like the oil and the grain has run out of our supply. Maybe a job has ended, or there isn't enough money in the bank to pay the bills. God is saying to many of us in this hour, that He alone will meet our needs. I know that it is a difficult place to be, and yet, beyond our limited understand and resources, He somehow is opening up the flood gates of heaven for many of His servants in this hour, and is pouring out the needed financial resources for us. This is not a "name-it claim it" thing, but simply His loving nature unfolding His plans for us. It goes beyond logic and common sense. There are miracles that still happen today.)

14 For the Lord, the God of Israel, says: The jar of flour shall not go empty, nor the jug of oil run dry, until the day when the Lord sends rain upon the earth. 1 Kings 17

"The heavens will open wide for many of my servants in this hour. For I will meet your needs in ways greater than what you can imagine. I will take what you have in your purse and I will multiply it.

Don't look to the world for your sustenance, but look to the heavens for they hold more than what you can imagine. The prophet went to the widow and the oil and the grain never ran dry. Some of you think that your jars have run dry, but I tell you that I will replenish them.

Have you left your job? Does it seem like there is no end in sight? I tell you that I hold the purse strings. I still create miracles. I go beyond what the world thinks can happen. Expect the unexpected and it will happen.

The world will always fail you. The world will never take care of you like I can. I created everything in it. Out of the small things, even your small faith, I can cause it to grow and be replenished. "
