“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it,” Matthew 10:34-29.
“For the world waits in anxious anticipation — the world awaits for My coming.
But what will they find when I come back?
Will they find the gentle Jesus who came to them before?
I tell you that I AM coming back with a sword. I AM coming back to separate everything that is not of Me.
But I tell you, this sword will pierce your hearts. It will come to insure that everything you do and say is for Me alone.
Will I find you working and striving after the things of the Kingdom, or will you continue seeking the things of this earth?
For that sword will separate between soul and spirit. It will separate between joints and marrow.
Your foes on that day will be those of your own household. Your friends may leave you, but I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Many will come declaring that they are the one to come, but you shall know them by their fruits.
He who receives you, also receives Me. But many shall reject you in this hour, but also remember that I was also rejected.
For I was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And yet I AM coming back as a King.
This world may well have many kings, and they last only for a short time, but My Kingdom will last forever.
For the kingdoms of this life are only for a short time. They come and go like the chaff upon this earth. They will be blown like the wind.”

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?
