A Teaching About Words of Judgment
— That May Not Be Entirely True…
This is a repost from 2011 concerning several Words of judgment that I’ve come to question over the years.
I thought it might be good for me to do a little teaching about certain Prophetic Words.
Below I have a couple of words that have been sent to me over the last few months. Immediately in my spirit I knew there was a mixture to be seen here, and that most of the messages had at their root, a sense of anger and perhaps bitterness to be seen in them.
I know this person and he has come to me before asking for a personal word from The LORD.
This time The LORD showed me and I spoke to him saying that his messages did not represent the counsel of God. I was told and it becomes quite obvious, that he needs to embrace God’s mercy for His people as well.
Unfortunately, some like him continue to believe that they have God’s mandate to speak these things and to share them believing that they represent God’s truth in its entirety concerning judgment.
However, let it be known that I believe in judgment prophecies, and I have been used before several times, to speak in this way.
But I also believe that a true Prophetic Word will have a “balance” in it that will show God’s judgment and anger towards a nation, a people, a Church, or an individual, but in it, one will also see His mercy being poured out and offered to that audience as well. We have only to look at the words of Isaiah or Jeremiah.
So why am I posting this word?
I believe that part of my job as an office prophet is to also help instruct and teach others so that they can also “know what is true and what is not true.”
There are so many Prophetic Words, poems, and exhortations that flood the internet these days. Some are good, but a lot of them are not.
So, my intent is not to ever mention any names or people in doing this, but only that we can be equipped:
“14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work,” Ephesian 4:14-16.
I understand the fervor that some would speak like this. The gift of prophecy is much different that the office of a prophet, and while it is true that typically a prophet will speak words of judgment and correction, he or she would also know the heart of God in this matter, and because of that, again there would be an essence of mercy in that word of judgment.
Some have become quite stubborn and stiff-necked in their pronouncements of doom and they are not “teachable.”
*I’ve edited some of this below and there is perhaps more that one could question.
But the point is, that we do need to question things like this.

Stern Words From Almighty God for the Church
“I AM going to destroy My Church.”
God does not want to destroy His Church, that is His people. Some Churches will stand and yet others will not I believe.
“I AM going to destroy My Temple.”
“I AM going to destroy My people.”
God does not want to destroy His people.
“I AM going to destroy My temple of the Holy Spirit.”
This is really an incredible thing to to say!
“I AM going to destroy My people because they do not obey Me.”
“My people won’t obey Me!”
“My people refuse to follow Me.”
Some do and yet some do not. A Word like this needs to speak only to those who do not follow and do not obey. To say “All” is simply not the case.
“My people refuse to serve Me.”
“My people won’t repent!”
“My people won’t listen!”
“My people don’t accept Me” (Jesus) (Word to Church people)
Some do and others do not.
“My people have forsaken Me. I must destroy them for that.”
We have all forsaken Christ, and yet many still follow Him.
“I have forsaken My people.”
“Tell My people how I’ll destroy them.”
“I’M gonna destroy My people completely.”
Simply not true. Well, if His people are completely destroyed, then who would speak for Him? Who would be saved by Him? Who would serve Him?
Does God really intend to destroy His people completely? I don’t think so.
“I am going to destroy their Churches. I’m gonna destroy them and their Churches.” (To the pastors who don’t want jesus around.)
There are some Churches that truly do worship god in spirit and in truth. There are many that don’t.
“You know I’m gonna destroy your society?”
“I AM going to destroy your empire.” (Meaning America )
“I AM going to destroy My empire.” (Meaning America )
“I AM going to destroy your country.” (Meaning America )
Not all of America will be destroyed. Otherwise, those who truly are following God would be destroyed as well.
“I’M gonna destroy this country from top to bottom.”
“I’ve done enough blessing.”
God continues to bless, even though judgment is coming and is even here.
“I’M gonna destroy this country from inside and out.”
“I’M gonna blast this country apart into little pieces! “
“I AM gonna destroy that state.” (Meaning California)
“What are you going to do during the Great Depression?”
“Depart from the city of My wrath.” (Meaning San Francisco)
“Leave this place, city of My wrath.” (Meaning Mesa – Phoenix)
“Depart from the city of My wrath.” (Meaning Los Angeles)
“Las Vegas will stand as an empty monument to greed.”
This I know to be true.
“I’M gonna destroy that place.” (Meaning San Diego)
“I’ll destroy this city with a sudden burst. It will all be reduced to piles of rubble.” (Word of prophetic judgment concerning New York City)
“I’m gonna destroy it.” (Meaning Denver)
“City of My grief.” (Meaning Nashville)

“I will destroy this place. It is a stench before Me.” (Word for Wenatchee, WA)

“I’M gonna judge him. I’M going to destroy the empire of Hugh Hefner.”
“Don’t be mad at these people. Let Me judge them. I told you that I made them hard-hearted so that I could destroy them. These people won’t serve Me. I will judge each and every one of those who passes you by. You shall see the wrath of God.” (Concerning the people of GA)
“You don’t know the damage, destruction I can cause.”
“I will help you during the days of depression. I will be with you.”
“You have no need to fear for I AM with you. Fear not, for I have not forsaken you.”
“Destroy My people with your Prophetic Word, because they refuse to obey Me.” (Words of The LORD to me.)
“I AM a God of wrath to those who do not obey Me.”
“Why won’t My people obey Me? It’s because they don’t love Me.”
“Few will.” (Obey Jesus)
Prophetic Judgments and Laments Concerning God’s People:
“I’m grieved with My Church.”
“I’M gonna destroy each and every one of them. Because they refuse to obey Me.” (To His prophets, His people, and His ministers)
Here again….. God is going to destroy every one of them?
“What are you gonna do when you’re rich and wealthy, and can’t hear My Spirit?”
“Money brings My people down.”
“Not many people are willing to obey Me.”
“I will destroy this empire.”
“I’ll destroy My empire.”
“My people refuse to obey Me.”
“My people won’t obey Me.”
“My people refuse to do My will.”
“My Church won’t obey Me.”
“My people don’t love Me.”
“I’m gonna destroy My people.”

“They won’t serve Me.”
“They refuse to do My will.”
“They refuse to obey Me, My son.”

All will be destroyed? God’s Church will be completely destroyed?

“There’s a time of an end for everything.”
“My people care more about money than Me.” (Jesus)

“They’re not willing to do My will. They’re doing it their way. Send My stern word.”
“Tell My people I’ll destroy them.”
“Destroy My Church, for they refuse to do My will.”
“Destroy My Church by your Prophetic Word.”
This is a dangerous and a very wrong thing to say. It is true that Jeremiah was called upon to build up and to pluck down, but to destroy a Church through a Prophetic Word is in itself evil. This is not the Spirit of God!
“I will save who I will save.”
“Did Jeremiah quit when he heard My word? He prophesied the death of his Church age.”
“I blessed the people, but they used it for selfish purposes.”
“Someday this will all turn into desert, because My people refuse to obey Me.”
“These people won’t serve Me here.” (To the people living in the South)
“My people won’t serve Me. I’ll judge them for that.”
“Few will obey Me.”
“I’m not with My Church. They won’t let me.”
“My Church refuses to serve Me.”
“That’s the way My people are. They won’t listen.”
“They sing all the right songs, but they don’t do My will.”
“Nobody’s willing to do that. I must destroy the Church.” (Concerning preaching the Gospel to every creature)
“It doesn’t need finances. Look how they did it in the Roman times.” (Concerning financing the Kingdom of God)
“I hardened the hearts of people so that I could bring this judgment. Nobody will repent, not even pastors will repent.”
“I hardened their hearts that they may be destroyed. Your heart is still tender.”
“I must do what I have to do. I have given these people time to repent, and they haven’t responded. They’ll all be gone!”
“Stand against My females.” (God told me that all Christian women in America are “Jezebels,” meaning that they are infected with feminist rebellion.)
Well… This is certainly a falsehood. Perhaps one can see some of the root of this person’s sin and how he has embellished the Prophetic Word with his own bitterness.
“They won’t comply. They think they own the whole world. I’ll judge them for that.”
“They won’t obey Me. They’re all out chasing their own thing.”
“That’s why you can’t get a wife.”
“They aren’t willing to serve Me.”
“I’m gonna destroy My women. You’ll see it!”
“I shall destroy them. You’ll see.”
“‘I suffer not a woman to teach’ still stands. They must be homemakers, wives.”
Boy, this will really ruffle some feathers! All women should be homemakers? I’m certainly glad I didn’t say it.
“That’s why women refuse to serve Me. Because they prefer doing their own thing.” (Prophetic judgments concerning Christian women)
“My people are going to be destroyed. Their sin has risen to Me. Pray for them. This place will be destroyed by My mighty hand. They have refused to obey Me. I’ve called many times. Look at what they do. It will all be destroyed in a moment.”
“I’m gonna destroy each and every one of ‘em, My people!”
“I’ll destroy this place because they are not doing My will.”
“Warn the Friscoites of their destruction. Go there. Will you go there? Warn My people of their destruction. Will you do My will?”
“I’ll drastically change the landscape. Their sin has risen up to Me.” (To the people of CA.)
“Tell My people of their doom.”
“Tell My people of their destruction.”
“Not many will be saved.” (Concerning God’s people in America)
“My people won’t serve Me. I’ll judge them for that.”
“I’m gonna destroy My people completely!”
“My Church will be destroyed.”
“My people will be destroyed.”
“Very few will obey Me.”
“Few will” (…obey Jesus)
“Tell the Church they’re going to Hell.”
Get ready saints… All of the Church is going to hell? Good thing this isn’t true as well.

Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to The LORD is a special way in 1975 and has prophesied regularly since. In these end-time birthing pangs we are reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?
