6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Cor. 2

“He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.” Daniel 2:22

"For as much as I have come into the world, I came to redeem man and to show him the way of salvation. I came and died on a cross to save him from his sins. I came in the form of a lowly servant and yet many did not receive Me. But I AM coming back as the King of Kings. I will pierce the clouds on that day, and many who do not know Me now, will weep in anguish because they chose to not believe in Me.

But to many even now, I have given them the right to become sons and daughters of mine. For you are given the keys to the kingdom. You are given the keys to unlock the secrets. For those secrets are buried deep within my wisdom and love for you. There are riches buried deep within that wisdom. For the world knows nothing about that wisdom. For great sages and men of the past have delved deep within the books written by men to find this secret. And yet that secret is hidden to them. But to those who know Me I have given them the keys to unlock those secrets.

For in this world men would attempt to unlock the secrets of life and death. But they only use the materials that are available to them. Come to Me my children, and I will unlock these things unto you. And then the books will be thrown open, and the Son (sun) will pour through them. "

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11
24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118

"Awaken my people--awaken to the new day in you. For indeed, it is a new day. The things of yesterday are behind you. The sorrows of yesterday have diminished in Me. Awaken and come forth. What once seemed like a disappointment to you will now be turned around into your favor.

No more will there always be dark days. For the sun will come through the clouds and the promises of resurrected life will be yours. Every day is a new beginning. Every day is a day where you can leave the troubles behind you.

Every day you can come to Me. But I have called you as men and women of faith. For you follow those things that are not seen. You follow those things that are not seen as though they are seen. For the way of faith is walking but knowing that even though you don't know what's in front of you, you believe in Me in spite of these things.

Walk as men and women of faith."

Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will raise up against Babylon, and against them that dwell in the midst of them that rise up against me, a destroying wind;2 And will send unto Babylon fanners, that shall fan her, and shall empty her land: for in the day of trouble they shall be against her round about. Jeremiah 51

"I tell you my people, I come to you again to tell you of what will soon transpire. For the armies of the east will come in the dead of night, and they will come through your northern passage. They will come with their armies; they will come with their tanks; and they will march through the northern wastes. Your surveillance system will not catch all of this in time.

For they have been busily at work and in secret have devised a plan. For Putin and the leader of China are ready. They have planned these things in secret now for some time. When the time is ripe I will move upon this thing. For you are held in judgment oh land. You have murdered the innocent and you have forsaken Me.

You have murdered and blasphemed my name. You call yourself rich and yet you are poor and wretched. You say, 'But we are a righteous people--we praise you, we gather our tithes and offerings into your household of prayer.' But I the Lord say, " I never knew many of you, for you do it for your own righteousness sake.

Swiftly will I come at that time. Surely I will save my remnant. For I will warn you ahead of time. "

Stephen Hanson



"I declared the former things long ago And they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them Suddenly I acted, and they came to pass. Isaiah 48:3

"Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; Luke 21:34

"You are entering a time when the winds of change will come blowing against your lives. You are entering a time when my body needs to be alerted to the many things that are coming. For swiftly those things that have been prophesied about this time period will suddenly come to the forefront. Suddenly those things that seemed far off, will now be seen as nearer.

For when you look out upon a landscape you see the distant hills and trees, but then as you come nearer to them, you see them for what they are. For then the details are seen for what they are. I will give you a far-sighted reach unto these things.

For the winds of change are sweeping across this nation. The nation stands in readiness as the many developments that have encompassed it battle for position. Be alert and be ready, my people."

For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Mark 13:8

Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellers, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellers, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them.Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God. Daniel 3: 21-28

"For the world spins around and around as it always has, but now in these last days the earth is going through changes. For there are birth pangs around the globe. The seas rise and the mountains quake. For a woman goes through birth pangs and the trouble that she endures finally gives birth to the child. And when the delivery is done and finished, she is overjoyed to see the result of what she had gone through in the process to get to that point.

And just as the earth has been going through birth pangs, so now you my people have been going through a series of severe trials and tribulations. For these have come to prepare you for what is coming. Some of you have been going through the fire and at times that fire would seem to burn you, but I tell you, I control the dials of the furnace.

Remember that the Hebrews were in the fiery furnace and they were not burned up. Even so, you my children will not be burned up when you go through all of these things. "

Stephen Hanson



And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. Revelation 10:10

Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. Proverbs 20:17

30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. 31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. Numbers 13

"Your land will rise and fall. Do you think that words of promise will make everything great again? You have swallowed a pill that in the beginning may seem like the right pill to swallow, but in the end it will prove to be bitter.

Bitterness will come to many, for what you have been promised comes from the hand of deceit. You would receive something promised from the heart of someone who has been corrupted. You are a people of little to no discernment. The ax will be laid to the tree and on that day only a stump will remain.

Your promises are given from one hand, and yet dolled out by the other one in secret. For you are a people who have looked for a Savior who would lead you to the promised land. But if you remember Joshua led the spies into the land and he saw that they were but grasshoppers amid the people of the land.

There are giants in the land now, but they are not giants of stature. They are the giants of disbelief. They are the giants of avarice. They are the giants of close-mindedness. Many have chosen to follow after someone who exemplifies these qualities. Choose this day how you fight the giants that are around you."

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

“I tell you that you are reaching towards the end of the last days. For when you see the vile displays of men and women exchanging unnatural relations with one another, when you see the killing of innocent blood, and when you hear the killing of people on every street corner, then you will realize that the time of the end is rapidly approaching. For the people have chosen to believe a lie. Many have chosen to revere the creature instead of the creator.

But let the wicked remain wicked; for the evil will spread across the globe. The sheep will be scattered each unto his own place. And as the world grows darker, you will find that there are but a few remaining lights upon the globe. Seek shelter among the wings of the Almighty. For you will need to find shelter from the storms that are gathering around you. “

7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. Psalm 139

"There is no place that anyone can hide from Me. For you may go to the deepest ocean; or may swim across the deepest recesses. You may try to hide in a cave that is hollowed-out in a mountain. But my eye will be ever following you. Why would you try to hide from Me, says the Lord?

For my Spirit longs to have fellowship with my people, but many are too caught-up in their daily lives. For the earth is mine and everything in it. My eyes are everywhere examining the ways of man. You may think that you can hide from Me, but I know even your innermost thoughts. Even before a word is upon your tongue, I know of that which you will speak.

For indeed, you were wondrous made by my hand, and yet many of you have fallen away from my Spirit. You have profaned my name, and you have chosen to follow after men rather than Me. But the arm of the flesh is weak, it will never sustain you.

I tell you, where will you hide when the mountains roll into the sea? Where will you hide when buildings are toppling all around you? After the dust settles after that great and terrible day, will you finally acknowledge who I AM? "

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Matt. 5 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

"I have called you to be salt in this world. But your salt has lost its flavor. The salt that once was pure has now become watered down. You are called to be a city on a hill, but your light has dimmed. Why would you be set so that the world would seemingly see you but then when they do, they only see more of the world?

You are called to be separate. You are called to be set apart. For many of your clothes have now become soiled. For I have come for a bride, and yet I see that she is not prepared for Me. And yet some of you would clean the outside of the cup thinking that you have done enough. You are white-washed sepulchers.

For the inside is dirty and vile. But I can make you clean, says the Lord. I can make you as white as the new fallen snow. "

Feb. 2, 2019

10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 1 Cor. 3

What are you building with? Perhaps you began with the foundation and you were loyal for years making sure that you were on solid ground. But now after a few years of having success, you've decided to find other materials on which to continue with the building.

You have had a following and many applauded you for the work that you have done. They saw in you a man or a woman who followed God's principles and your heart was seemingly grounded in integrity and honesty. And now because of your success you've decided to find gold and silver to adorn the building that once had the solid foundational stones. Those stones were strong and they had stood the test of time and they had weathered many storms in your life.

But you took the opportunity because you knew that others around you had also decided to continue building. And it is a good thing to build, but those called as apostles must especially heed with what materials they are now using. For as leaders many have looked up to you for your wisdom. So now the choicest stones made of polished materials must be used you think, and the furnishings within should be framed with gold and polished brass. Now those who follow will know of your success and your ability to govern.But you see, some of you have forgotten the words of the One who we all follow.
11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. Matt. 23

And yet all who have been called to partake in this building that we are all a part of must be careful how they build. For anyone no matter what their calling is, should use wisdom in their choice of building materials. Those called as prophets can very easily pick up materials that they think are the right ones. For as the layers are built-up, one's eyes can get diverted very easily. One can miss the holes and the cracks that begin to form as the layers are added one-by-one. You may well think that you are hearing correctly from the voice of the Father, but another spirit has now deceived you.

Don't think that just because you are grounded in the word as a teacher that your grasp of the scriptures has enabled you to pin-point when and how God's time table will unfold. The stones that you began with were solid and were laid correctly, but now upon closer inspection what was once level has now begun to sag. Go back to the foundation and to the original principles that you once knew. Throw away those stones that don't match the corners of the previous layers and begin again.

And you who pastor, you were secure at first. You had the heart of a servant. You led with compassion and your sermons gave hope to those around you. But now your drive for more and more has caused you to implement programs that are of your own making. Your flock has grown and you want something bigger and better. But your numbers aren't important, for years ago the few that once gathered were fed and didn't lack. But now the diet that you are feeding them has sugar and the things of the world mixed in with it. You have become luke-warm and very soon you will be spit out if you don't change.

You see, it doesn't matter what ministry or calling one may have. For we all partake in this building that was laid at the cornerstone of Jesus. Those foundational stones must be secure, for they must be laid upon by the true doctrines of the apostles and prophets who have gone before us. And yet even now, those ministries are crucial to the building that must go forward. Find your place within the building and take up your stone and lay it next to another one. See how its edges and corners fit there. Examine those other stones around you on those layers. And then rejoice knowing that you are a part of this great building that rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: Ephesians 2:21

23 Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.24 The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he hath done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it. Jeremiah 30

"A whirlwind is coming to your land, says the Lord. For a whirlwind will come and it will spread across your land. It will blow across the land and it will spread its wings into every corner of your lives. For this wind will blow and it will separate those who are with Me from those who are against Me. Go into your homes on that day, for the tempest will come with great fury. You will be kept safely inside, but I tell you that those who do not know Me will be in fear for the great wind that blows.

For great extremes of weather are coming to your land--extremes of heat and extremes of cold. Prepare yourselves for these days; for the great birth pangs are rumbling. "

6 You will hear of wars and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be famines and earthquakes from place to place. 8 All these are the beginning of the labor pains. Matt. 24

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt. 7

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

"Is there not to be found any faith in this hour? Is there not anyone who would put their faith in Me alone? For when the mountains fall into the sea and the earth erupts, you can trust in Me. For I AM the creator of this earth and everything in it.

The greatest thing that you can ever to do for Me is to relinquish your control over to Me. For I have called you to allow Me to be king over your life. That means that I AM the One that you would bow down to and not to another. How many of you have gone through your own way thinking that you know what is best and in the end you've made a terrible decision in your life? Therefore, choose this day to put Me first before all the other 'gods' in your life.

Do you not know that I can turn any bad situation into something good? Relinquish those things unto Me and see if I will not turn them into a blessing. For I would give you life and not death. But turn from those things that are now evil in your life. I can give you a new beginning. There are two roads in this life. There is the wide road to destruction and there are many that have taken it But the narrow one leads to eternal life and there are few who will take it. Choose therefore, which road you will take.

I have said that in this world you will face many tribulations, and yet I have also said that I will be with you through them. For I have overcome this world. I can overcome all of the troubles that you will face in this world, and yet my children, you must face a series of great trials in order to perfect your faith in Me. For you must be perfected for what lies ahead. The troubles and the trials that you have now faced will be nothing compared to that which very soon is to come into your lives. But they are never sent to harm you, for as a Father I do them for your good. "

Stephen Hanson



God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though its waters roar and be troubled, Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Psalm 46 Selah

"What are you afraid of, says the Lord? There are many who are sharing words and messages of the destruction of this land, and yet many think that they will not be saved through the destruction that is coming. Have I not said that I would save my own through the turmoil that is coming?

Many are fearful; many are torn in many ways, and yet I tell you that you will be saved through all these things. But that doesn't mean that you will not be tried in more ways that you can imagine. That does not mean that you will not face many troubles ahead. I have told you of the impending invasion of your land. I have told you of your great river that will overflow its banks, and empty the Great Lakes from above. Yea, I have told you of the desolation of many of your cities, and yet these are not to invoke fear, but that you would be made ready.

For what father would not prepare his children? Would you not want to know what is ahead for you as a land? Many of you have put your faith in the affairs of man. If you continue to do this then those foundations will crumble. But if you put your faith and trust in Me then when all these things happen all around you, you will be kept safely under my wings. "

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

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt. 7

"Be about my business, says the Lord. Do those things that I've called you to do. For the time will come when there will be no time left. For this world and everything in it, is racing towards judgment. And I tell you that judgment has begun at the household of God. Judgment has begun and it will be made stronger; for your land has fallen. You are fallen and you will never return to your former glory.

You will never return. And the dust will blow over what is left in your land on that day. You pretend to be a righteous nation, and you sing your songs to Me thinking that all will be well, but you do not know how far you have fallen. My cup of judgment is being poured out upon your land. And I tell you that the severity of these things will be a witness to all that live here.

You think that you are righteous when you sit in the pews of your churches? You think that all is well. You will have to give account of everything that you have done and said on that day. You will say, 'Have I not prophesied in your name? Lord, have I not given to the poor? You will say, 'I always gave my ten percent in a tithe.' And I will say unto you, "I never knew you."

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John 14

6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1

"In my Father's house there are many mansions. I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you. But for now you must go through many trials to perfect your faith. The time has come for you to be tested for this nation is reeling back and forth like a drunkard upon the seas. The turmoil that is seen in Washington will reach a climax. Many have been caught-up in this turmoil. Confusion and chaos has made her web there. But will you be ready when everything comes to your shores? Will you be ready when martial law ensues? For your great leader is bringing your land down to ruin.

They are coming upon the seas on that day. Your enemies will take advantage of the turmoil within your land. But my people, you are not to fear, for when calamity strikes I will be your strong tower. I will be the one that you can run to on that day. "

5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy 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. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king. 1 Samuel 8

"The great king of your land will fall on that day. For he was not chosen to make your land great again. He was not chosen by Me, says the Lord. For you wanted a king and now you've had him. And so now you will reap the rewards of your decision. Are you satisfied? You would follow someone who would bring your land down to the grave. You would follow someone who would create chaos instead of righteous acts and deeds. Those are decisions that you will have to live with. Those are choices that you must live with. Some thought he was to be a Cyrus over you, but you were fooled by the one who prophesied this. Let Me ask this of you now: 'Has he brought plenty to your land? Has he increased your goods and services? Are you now honored among the other lands around you? You are now weighed in the balances. Your national treasury will be depleted on that day. Even your allies will not help you on that day. For you would rather help the rich than the poor. You would rather elevate things for your own causes. You would rather follow a man than Me. But go ahead with the promises that have been made. I am certain that they will all be fulfilled. "

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. Matt. 21

"Do you say that you are a holy nation? Do you say that you are mine, says the Lord? You have followed after the gods of your own making. You have followed the whispers of the enemy. For those promptings that he has whispered in your ears have gone down deeply into the chambers. They have settled there and you have believed them.

You were once a nation that was forged from the men of old. You struck out on your own, away from the strong arm of England. You traveled upon the seas and formed your own nation here. But now you have gone through own way. Now you are a splintered land. You have rejected the stone; the chief corner stone. For your foundation has been removed, and now you are building with your own stones.

Your building will collapse. For a nation divided against itself will fall. "

Stephen Hanson




But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house [divided] against a house falleth. Luke 11:17

"This nation will be brought to its knees. For the winds of turmoil are sweeping across the land. The winds have grown in intensity. The winds of political upheaval have reached far and wide in your land, and now because of their intensity, a showdown between those who are involved, will eventually come to an end. But now the dominoes will begin to fall. For the series of events that befalls your land will usher in the end of your demise.

For your division has reached a peak. It has been ever-widening, but now it can be more clearly seen; and when it is all over, then that division will culminate in the great rift that separates your land in half. "

17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16

Stephen Hanson



Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. Isaiah 10

"There is nothing that you can do to prevent what is coming to your land. For it will surely come. Your land will be ravaged on that day. You think that you are protected. You think that your cities are strong. You think that you are kept from the siege that will come to your land. Oh, you are a foolish people, says the Lord. You trust in those things made out of steel and stone, but those things are not everlasting.

Oh, that you would have put your trust in Me! But your walls of stone will come tumbling down on that day. They are not knit together in my strength. They have not been forged in the fire by my hands. Your borders will be breached on that day.

You are a broken land. You are broken by your division. You are broken by your great pride, and that pride will be the downfall of the man that sits at the helm of your nation. For you think that he was chosen by Me to make your land great again. You have trusted in those who have said false words. You are gravely deceived, says the Lord.

Oh that you would still come to Me! For you have neglected the poor. You have elevated the rich and have given them privilege. But your luxuries will not save you on that day. For your velvet curtains will be torn and ravaged. The tower that represents your name was forged in your great pride, and it will fall to the wind and will be ravaged on that day!

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:6

Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. Luke 12:40

"What would I say to a nation that has gone away from Me? What would I say to a land that has profaned my name on every street corner? You have gone the way of Abel. You have deserted your brother, and now he lies dying in the dust. You pretend to say that you know Me and love Me, and yet you spend your time with other things. You can't even turn the TV off long enough to listen to Me.

But I will surely get your attention in the days ahead. For the money will run dry from your purse strings. The almighty dollar will fail on that day. For your system is broken. The one at the helm of the ship has led you into chaos. But I still have a remnant. I still have a people who honor Me.

The waves will go high upon the ship in this year. You will be tossed to and fro upon the waves---and you must muster all the faith that you can. For the hour indeed, is very late. It is just a few minutes before midnight. What will you do when the hour strikes at that time? "
