“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?” 1 Peter 4:17.
“Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the Lord hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon. O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness. The Lord of hosts hath sworn by himself, saying, Surely I will fill thee with men, as with caterpillers; and they shall lift up a shout against thee. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth: he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures. Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are vanity, the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish,” Jeremiah 51:12-17.
“What do you have to lose my people, for putting your faith in Me?
What would you lose when the mountains fall into the sea and yet I AM still with you?
What do you have to lose when men and women are crying out in fear because of the judgment that is coming, and I have protected you under My wings?
When the torrents of judgment come will you run and hide?
Will you close your windows and believe in Me?
Where will your shelter be?
When gunshots ring throughout the hills where will you run to?
When the churches have closed their doors where will you gather on that day?
For I have said many times that your land will be invaded. I told you in various ways and means, that an attack would come from the north.
It will come in secret across the Aleutian Islands. When you think that all is well, then under the cover of darkness, then the enemy will be moving his troops.
Your surveillance system will alert you but it will be too late. For even though you may be prepared your arsenal will not be strong enough.
For you think that your arm of the flesh is stronger than mine. You have trusted in the strength of man for so long that you can’t see any other way.
Oh, that you would have returned to Me. If you had only trusted in Me to lead you through these dark days.
If only you had forsaken your idols. If only you had given to the fatherless and homeless.
But how many times have I needed to warn you?
The great bear will join forces with the dragon of the east. The combination of their two nations will be a force that you oh America, cannot stand.
You will lose your freedom on that day. Your statue of liberty will have fallen into the harbor.
And a new leader will emerge who will usher in the last of days.”

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?
