“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 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” 1 Corinthians 3:11-13
“Do you not know and can you not see how the world is racing towards judgment? The world goes about its business as usual. The world gets up and does the things that it usually does. But many do not know how to read the signs that are all around them. The majority of the church has been lulled to sleep by a gospel of complacency.
Still others follow their own leading. Many try to pin-point the time of my return but they have failed to even listen to my voice. There are builders and there are planters in my kingdom. There are many who claim to have all the gifts of my Spirit but many of them have fallen into strange and unusual teachings.
There are seminars that teach you how to go to the next level, but you cannot prescribe these things unless I have taught you them myself.
The church has become a business. For when you have been shown how to be successful with this or that, you are just following the world’s standards. For I do not measure success as the world does. I don’t follow a pattern of how the world does things.
I AM bringing a battering ram into my church. For it will shut down the doors of tradition. It will blow a mighty wind into my tabernacle. For it will do away with the one-man-show.
For the foundation has become cracked and needs repair. For many of you have built upon it with costly gems and stones. Your buildings have become a spectacle rather than a place of worship.
And those who are apostles in my kingdom, would that you would build my kingdom. But instead, many of you are building your own kingdoms with spires up to the skies. I have said that the greatest among you must be the servant of all. But you lord your position over many.
I tell you that a great change is coming, says the Lord, and it is not the kind of change you might expect. But I am elevating some that you would expect not, and I am also bringing others to a lower position.”

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?
