21 Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:22 Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the Lord our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. Jeremiah 5

"Watch the skies, for you know not where trouble will come from. Trouble comes in many forms, and yet it comes to all upon the earth. Man has always found a way of inviting trouble into his home. For it is true that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. It is true that the earth experiences a variety of different weather patterns.

For this earth has gone through many changes. It has experienced upheavals in a variety of ways. For you have seen the birth pangs increasing; you have watched as the seas rise and fall. You have watched as the mountains have quaked. And yet with all of these natural signs man still goes about his business as if nothing is changing.

When will you turn from your wicked ways? When will you realize that judgment is about to fall? You are a lost generation, and yet you think that you are found. You seek your answers under every rock and beside every tree. But when will you seek the One who will give you the answers that you seek?

Everything is about to rip open. This nation has already experienced much bloodshed, but I tell you that the divisions that exist will widen to such an extent that many will seek out those who disagree with them, and the streets will be filled with their blood. Woe to those who call evil good. Woe to those who give a false report. For the lies that you spew will come back upon your own head. Your foes will come back to haunt you.

Your nation is nearing more and more trouble each and every day. And the one who is at the helm will bring about your utter ruin. You will never be great again! It is a false promise uttered from the lips and heart from a man who is bringing about your ruin. But go ahead and continue with your rallies! They only seek to elevate and divide the people even more.
Oh, that you would have eyes to see. Oh, that your hearts would have been given over to Me. You see black when others see white. You see hatred when others should be seeing love. "

From the Father,
Stephen Hanson



17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, “Come, assemble for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great.”19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh. Rev. 19

"The land stands waiting for my return. For on that day the world will be released from its birth pangs. It has been waiting for the sons of glory to find their rightful place. For all of the tribulations, and all of the pangs and suffering will one day be over with. For it has been subjected to futility. It has been subjected to the winds that have blown across the land. But on that day I will redeem the land.

The armies of the earth will come and scourge it, and the blood will come and flow on up to the horse's stirrups. The valley of Armageddon will remain desolate on that day. The birds of the air will come and feast upon the flesh who have been left dying there.

The end will come and the beast and the one who is doomed for perdition will be vanquished. And that dragon, the one named satan, will be thrown into the fiery pit. No more will his filthy lies fill the land.

But you my people, must go through some severe trials until that day. You will be tried in ways that you cannot even imagine yet. But I will save you and protect you from all the things that are coming. You will be hidden under my wings, and you will find shelter in the midst of the wilderness. "

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. Psalm 91

Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. Habakkuk 2:8

"Shut yourselves up in your rooms, my people. For the darkness that is coming will spread, and it will take over the entire land. Behold...the decay of the land will cause my own to seek shelter. For many have believed an illusion rather than the truth.

The darkness will come because people have believed a lie rather the truth. You have followed after someone who has promised to make you great, but your greatness is not of Me. Your greatness is only because of a false illusion of yourselves.

Your great cities will fall on that day. They will fall into the ocean. You will be taken over, and many will look for shelter on that day but they will not find it. Woe to those who have prophesied great things to come to you! Woe to those who only promise sunshine and roses.

You will be brought low because of your pride. Your demise will be swift oh one who has exalted yourself above others. For your gold and your riches will not save you on that day. My own will know the truth and my truth will set them free from their captivity.

You will not rise again from your former glory. For your land will be plundered. But a remnant will be kept safe and they will work together as one man in the wilderness. In its day I will hasten it.

So would say the Spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. Matt. 16

"Do you know when trouble is about to arise? Can you discern when a mishap is about to happen? Many can discern the sky but they cannot tell nor discern, the times and the seasons that they are living in.

Oh generation of misled people! You are always looking for answers but never finding them. You search for water as in a dry land, and yet you only come upon an illusion. The water that I would give unto you would spring up into eternal life. But you would rather seek for the water that is upon this earth.

Trouble is seeking at all your borders, oh land; and yet you don't even know or see, the trouble that lies within you. The trouble is within. It breeds a deep cancer that is spreading. It spreads its vile tentacles into every avenue of your land. How can you claim to be clean when every vile thing is going on around you?

For what is coming can be decreed upon the horizon; It can be seen in the distance if you would have eyes to see. But you think that you are great, oh land. Your fall will be great, and yet you could have realized the trouble that is within, but you chose to ignore it. "

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matt. 11

7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9: 9-10

"Reach out to Me, says the Lord. Reach out to Me in times of distress and trouble. Reach out to Me when times are good. For many only come to Me when their lives are in shambles. I AM near those who would come to Me. For I AM the God of Abraham and Issac. I AM the God who brought my children out of captivity. I gathered them up and drove them out of Egypt. I fed them through the manna in the wilderness. I gave them my law through my prophet Moses. I saved them through many foreign kings and queens. There are countless stories of how I saved my children. But many wait until trouble comes knocking at your door. Many wait until everything is falling apart.

For many troubles would be averted if you would have come to Me first, because I know the end from the beginning. I see the end result. You only see with your earthly eyes the things that are limited to your vision.

Consider all of the things that you have done in your life. Consider those things that you wish that you had never done. I could have prevented many of them from happening, and yet I bring good out of everything.

My children, you have so much that you still need to learn. But if you would come to Me, then I will teach you the way of wisdom.

Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.” Psalm 23:3

16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16

"There is confusion around many in this hour. Many seek out answers to their questions, and yet they can't find them because they seek for the wrong reasons. Many are in a maze of sorts, and they are lost trying to find the way through it. Many are lost because they haven't allowed Me to take over; but I have said, 'This is the way, walk ye in it.'

I will lead you and guide you along straight paths. For my way is not the way of confusion; my way is paved with light. For you will be guided by my very hand. But if you are lost then call upon Me. For I will lead you out of the maze that you have created.

There is peace to be found when you follow after Me. There is light for your journey ahead. There are no crooked paths in Me. There are many roads that a man can take, and yet in the end, one would find out, that it is like a maze.
A man can get confused finding the road that he should take, for with all the choices many paths and roads can be misleading, but I alone am the road that you should take. I can always lead you back to the right one, and steer you back on the right path.

I will steer you even as a boat is steered upon the ocean. For the waves may toss it back and forth, and yet I can bring it back to safe harbor. Do not be lost at sea, my children. Take my hand, and let me steer the ship back to home.

Be at peace even in the midst of the storms around you. The tempest rages, and yet I will break through in the clouds. You are wandering upon this earth unto the end; you are sojourners walking out the paths that I have given to you.

Walk as I would have you to walk. Walk leaving all of your burdens behind. For in the journeys ahead all of the baggage will be needed to be left behind.

Continue in your journeys my children. "

Stephen Hanson



5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. Rev. 6

"I tell you that famine is coming to the land. For there will be a widespread lack of food and resources. The scales will be dropped; the black rider will ride across the land. For you have been found wanting. You thought you were rich, but you are poor. For this horse will bring his scales and the food will be scarce. You thought that you had plenty, but you have been found wanting.

The world's goods have always been at your disposal; you have always been a land of plenty, but the scales will go in the other way. For this steed will ride across the land, and he will bring with him another horse, that is soon to come. Then you will see the pestilence that will soon be upon your land.

You thought that you were great; but instead you will see that you are poor. Prepare my people---for the shortages that come will be among many. "

Stephen Hanson



3For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses. Isaiah 44
"Out of the desert I will pour water upon the dry land. As in ancient times, I poured the water out so that the land would produce vegetation and bloom into fruitfulness. For I give rain in its season. And yet I also give spiritual rain to my children who would ask of it. I gave manna from above to the children in the wilderness. They were able to be sustained in their journeys throughout the land. They wandered for many long years and yet, I was their God amid their wanderings.

And yet even today I have a people who have wandered in the desert. They have sought out water in a dry land; and yet the water that they seek is not the water that flows out of the desert. It is the water that comes out of the cistern from my holy throne. You will be replenished my children. You will be given strength for the journey. You will find the well of salvation. For in these desert places you will find shelter in your time of need.

For when the cities are emptied, and the forces that have taken over, there will be a place for you amid the rocks and the trees. You will forge together as one man, and the evil one doomed for perdition will not come near your tent."

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. John 4

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Matt. 25

And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not John 1:5

"Out of the darkness; into the light; that is the only way that my people will survive in the coming days. For the great darkness will cover the entire earth. Entire areas and cities will engulfed in the darkness, and it will be like a thick vapor that spreads its canopy. For you will need to be absorbed in my light--you will have to wear my light as a robe. For it will be so thick at times that you will barely be able to see in front of you. For the prince of the power of the air is busy with his seducing spirits--they will have seeped into all areas of your land. It will be a time of great distress and confusion. For many have loved the darkness more than the light. But my children, you know the light, for you have come to know of its presence and the power that resides within it. I will disperse my light and the truth and the beauty of it, and many will come to know Me in this hour. But I tell you that there will be a great gulf that separates many. For it is time of the great separation. It will become very plain as those who are for Me and those who are against Me. "

8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. Psalm 32

"For I tell you that the time is coming, yea, it is almost at your doors. The time is coming when you will have to move out of your present surroundings and situations. For the cities will have become a den of thieves. They will loot and steal everything you own.

Would that you would be ready at a moment's notice. For very soon your world will be turned upside down. I have told you that these things would be coming; I have warned you about them ahead of time. For your entire monetary system will fall, and what will you do when the almighty dollar fails?

You must learn to simplify your lives. Don't hold on to everything you own, for it will only become heavy baggage to you. Remember that you are only sojourners in this world. Do not fear for I will lead you along straight paths. "

Stephen Hanson



27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Hebrews 12

"So...tell Me my people, are you secure in your homes and in your dwellings? Do you feel safe in your homes of timber and stone? Do the walls and the foundation make you feel secure? For I tell you that your very homes will be shaken on that day. For you oh man, have put your faith in the things of this earth. I have said that everything that can be shaken will be shaken.

That very great rift that travels along the middle section of your land will rumble on that day. Homes and buildings will fall into that hole that is created.

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of this as He has now several times before. A man was reaching to try and get out of a deep hole that was created from this rift in the earth. Another person was reaching down to get them out. There was darkness all around and the chasm that had been created from this rift in the earth, was very deep and wide.)

You will see this great chasm open up in your land. It will separate your land right down the middle. For you oh land, have put your faith in your walls of stone and timber. You think that you are strong and mighty, but I will show you how low you have become."

Stephen Hanson



11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks 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. 1 Kings 19

"Will you hear the sound of my voice before it is too late? For with all the sounds around you, it will become increasingly more important to which one is true. Have you trained yourself to hear these things?

You may well be able to read the bible; you may well know many verses throughout it, but knowing my voice and being able to hear it correctly, will become more and more important in these days ahead.

For there is a great confusion across the land. There are many who think that they are speaking the truth, and yet they are following the imagination of their own minds. These are those who might proclaim a great love for land and country, and yet that very love for a land has blinded them to my truth.

These are those who would throw anyone in jail for speaking against a man who has clearly led many astray. I tell you that martial law will be ensued. Many will think that they are doing the right thing, but I tell you that they are being led down the road by a man whose soul purpose is do what is right in his own mind.

Keep your ears attuned to my Spirit."

Stephen Hanson



16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6

18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16

"Would you choose a man to lead your country whose fruit is rotten? Would you follow someone who has been given over to a depraved spirit? You think you are right when the voices are loud and the crowd cheers you on. I tell you that you have fallen. You have fallen so low that you cannot ever expect to get back up again.

Oh yes I know, this land was meant to be great! Some of those self-proclaimed prophets have spoken and surely they are right! These are those who jump up and down and declare that I have chosen someone to lead this land to glory. They say, 'Look, he talks about the bible.' And yet with the other hand, he distorts the very truth. Many are mocked, women are scorned, and the most foul things come out of a heart that only thinks of his own interest.
But go ahead, I AM sure that you are right in your assessment of him. Go ahead down the path that he is leading you. No, I tell you, you will drink of the foul deeds that have been done in my name. The mighty will fall on that day, and then you will surely know what the truth is! "

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” Rev. 12:12
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1

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

"I have come that men might have life, and that life is the light of man. But all around you there is darkness. And I tell you that that darkness will spread to every corner of the globe. For the darkness will be manifested in many ways. It will be seen in the deceitfulness of men's hearts. It will be seen in licentiousness; it will be seen in the corruption of many. For the enemy knows that his time is short. He will attempt to pull out everything that he has. For the battle of the ages is at hand. His ways are the ways of death, but my ways are the ways of life.

The ancient arts of sorcery will come to the front in these days. Dead and lifeless spirits will roam the earth masquerading as one's loved ones, but they are actually demonic forces. For the dark arts will be on full display in this hour. Even the gifts of my spirit will be mimicked and copied. For everything that I have created can be copied by him.

But I tell you that you must stand strong in this hour. Now is the time to use the tools of discernment. Now is the time for divine wisdom. Now is the time for the eyes of my spirit. "

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Deuteronomy 18
Stephen Hanson



13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Galations 5 "I have called you to be at peace with all men as long as it depends upon you; but not all men want peace. There are many who are around you who are like ravenous dogs. Watch out for them for they would bite and claw you.

Don't associate with those who would do those things that are contrary to Me. I have called you to be separate, so be ye separate. Don't partake in those things that are contrary to the Spirit. For the Spirit is life and peace and love. Those things of the flesh should be obvious to you. For the flesh wageth war against the Spirit. Don't gratify the things of the flesh.

Clothe yourselves with humility and dress yourselves with the things of the Spirit. Remember what the fruit of the Spirit is. For many may have the gifts of the Spirit, but what does their life give forth? Would a healthy tree produce bad fruit? Likewise would a bad tree produce good fruit? I have said that you would know them by their fruits. "

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

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: Act 2

"When the wind blows do you see the wind blowing? You see the effects of the wind and not the wind itself. For the wind blows wherever it will; it comes and goes. So it is with the Holy Spirit, you know not when it comes, and yet it enters into a man or a woman. But I tell you, the wind will blow and it will be very fierce at times; very catastrophic winds will come at times. The seas will rise, and fall back at times, and the earth will shake at its very foundations. But that same wind that causes destruction will also be like the wind of my Holy Spirit. For my Holy Spirit will be poured out like never before. It will be like a rushing wind. It will blow the chaff away. Miraculous deeds will be done in my name. Death will be at the door of many, and yet those who call upon my name, will receive their loved ones back after they have died. For I have said that if possible, you would do even greater things that I have done. And so as the days grow darker, know that my Spirit will be poured out in even greater measure. These are those days that the prophets of old inquired about. These are those days that many have wondered about.

Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt,darkness which may even be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. 23 They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. Exodus 10:21-23

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1

"Shut yourself up in your rooms for when the days of darkness comes; you will need to be hidden from the storms. Shut the windows and close the blinds, for a deep darkness will cover the land. Much has been said about the days that will come, and yet many have scoffed that these things would even happen; but I tell you that you are approaching these days. You,my children must be strong and resilient. You must separate yourself and remain steadfast in the faith.

There are indeed dark days that are coming but understand that even with the deep darkness, there is a light that shines brighter than the sun, and that light will illuminate my own. I have said that the darkness has never understood the light, for the darkness attempts to consume everything in its path. For all kinds of wickedness will come and will be in full display. Demonic forces will be on the rise and the hidden things of old will come out of their deep caverns. For the enemy knows that his time is short.

You will be directed where to flee to on that day. Those places of refuge that have been set, will be opened up for those who would come. For you will be hidden from all those things that would encircle around you. But remain strong knowing that I will prepare you for all these things that are ahead."

Ezekiel 32:7-8 When I put out your light, I will cover the heavens, and make its stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, And the moon shall not give her light. All the bright lights of the heavens I will make dark over you, And bring darkness upon your land,” says the Lord God.

17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4

"There is nothing that I cannot do, says the Lord. I can wash away your sins and I can make you into a new man or woman. I can resurrect the dead, and I can heal you from your diseases and infirmities. But I cannot accept a people who continually go against my commandments and follow after other gods.

Your land will be ravaged on that day. You think that your righteous deeds will save you from the onslaught that is coming, but I tell you that the judgment is set. For your nation will be invaded on that day. It will come when you are celebrating one of your many days of commemoration. I have heard your pleas to stop what is already set, but it will come.

Your great tall buildings will fall and the very steps of your White House will crumble. And I will separate those who have given their hearts to Me from those who have chosen to ignore Me. "

Stephen Hanson



Matthew 14:22-33 24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

(Throughout this message, the Spirit of the Lord showed me an ocean scene. I was upon a beach and it was still dark outside. The Lord Himself was walking and was raising his hand above as if to calm the waves of the ocean. The waves would subside and would calm.)

"Rest in Me, says the Lord. For with all of the troubles that beset many of my people, you must find time to rest. There is found a time to rest amid the many storms of life. For I have come to give you rest. I will calm the storms in your life. I speak to the waves and tell the ocean to calm. I told Peter to look to Me rather than to the waves.

You my people, need to enter into my rest, for otherwise the waves of this life will overtake you. The spirit of this world would always have you busy, rushing around doing this or that. But I would have you to slow down. For there is no need to hurry doing this or that thing. The world will always tug at you. But consider the ocean waves; consider the great expanse of them. For there is a stillness and a rhythm about them.

I stand upon the shoreline and I speak to the storms in your life, and I say to 'be still.'

I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. Isaiah 65
"Reach out to hear Me, says the Lord. Reach out to hear Me in a world where everyone is busy with their own affairs. And yet all day long I reach out to a people who choose to ignore Me. You are a rebellious people, and your reproach has caused Me much sorrow and grief.

Your righteousness is as filthy rags to Me. You pretend to be a people who would follow after Me. You sing your songs of praise and you take up your offerings, and yet you shun the poor and ignore the widow and the fatherless. You watch your favorite games and TV shows and yet you have little time for Me.

You are a pretentious people! You boast of many things and yet do you boast of Me? You go and hear your favorite speakers and you collect their tapes and CD's, and you think that you have found the truth then. I tell you that it is all hype! For it only glorifies the men and women who speak there. And now their coffers are full. But go ahead and jump up and down--Spin around and gyrate, I'm certain that you will become a spiritual giant!

All of this will be required of you when you finally meet Me in the end. I will say, 'Well down my faithful servant, or get thee away from Me for I never knew you.'"

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,2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12

"I have asked you, my children, to persevere, for you must persevere unto the end. For a runner would run a race, and yet he would pace himself so that he could go unto the end. But run and continue in the race, ignoring all the obstacles around you, for there are many distractions.

Set your mind like flint and be steady, knowing that nothing will move you. A true athlete has prepared their body. They have trained it so that it can endure hardship. You must endure hardship in the days ahead, for it will be a test to see what you will be able to endure.
All of the training that you have done until this minute has been mild compared to what is coming. For the roads ahead will test you in ways that might seem impossible, and yet all things are possible with Me.

Many will give up and lose their courage, but you must not be like them. For consider the things that I had to go through; consider the cross. I AM your example that has been set before you. And so, when the great trials that come, know that I have gone before you.

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

"There is a wind blowing across the land. It is a wind unlike the one that came recently to wreck havoc upon your shores. This wind comes in the form of deception. For it comes in very subtle ways. It comes to play tricks, and disguises itself as something good. It comes as a mist that invades all areas of your lives.

For there is a counterfeit spirit at work in this hour. It masquerades as something good, and yet it has twisted the good into its own means. It says that all things I do are good; but is is only a counterfeit of the original. For this spirit has twisted the hearts and minds of some causing them to believe a lie.

And who is he that would do these things after all? For satan himself came as an angel of light. This is he that boasts of many things. This is he who says, 'I alone can fix it.' Mark my words, for many believers have believed a lie. For they have swallowed a pill and have declared that such-and-such is the man of perdition. But I tell you that your eyes are clouded. You have jumped on the bandwagon and have followed others in your merry search for truth.
