“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? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 1 Peter 4:17-18.
“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. 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? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity,” Matthew 7:21-23.
“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.”

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?
