This Is the End of an Era, Says the LORD!
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows,” Matthew 24:6-8.
“I tell you that there is chaos ahead. On every corner there will be chaos erupting. For the final outcome of this election will bring out much violence.
For the hatred and the division will spread and will fill the land. It will culminate in a war between two factions. The Civil War in the 1800’s will not be unlike this one.
Who can hold the nation together, would say the LORD?
The arm of the flesh is not capable. You have entered into one of the last chapters of your history. This is the end of an era, would say the LORD.
For the times, they are a’changing.
A brief moment of peace will begin with the new year, for at first it will appear that with this new regime, the promises of a brighter future are in store.
But the climate of the world will have intensified, and wars will have continued. The bear and the dragon will have conspired together; and their plans held in secret will eventually take their course.”
Do You See God in Numbers, Tree Bark, and Clouds?
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the LORD,” Colossians 3:16.
How many of us look at the clock and it says, “3:33,” and you think that surely God is trying to get our attention about something?
How many of us look at our receipt from the store and it says, “$7.77” or even worse, “$6.66” and we know that something is surely up.
Then a mindset comes, and everything seems different. All of a sudden, there are images of Jesus’ face in our coffee cups, in the grain of splintered wood, and everywhere we look.
We all are well aware of the weeping statues of Jesus and Mary, and how many have flocked to see these things, and yet, perhaps some are indeed true.
God does indeed, speak to us and intervenes even in the simplest of things, and yet, how easy it can be to think that every number we see; every ticket we purchase, and every receipt that we receive, has God’s divine hand print on it?
Are we beginning to become superstitious with every waking moment, and with everything we see? Is there an angel on every street corner, and a devil under the sink? Let us return to the foundation of our faith, and to find an anchor there that firmly looks to the Chief Cornerstone.
Let the word of God dwell in our hearts with all wisdom and insight. Let us draw strength from the wells of salvation, and to drink from the living waters of His Spirit.
When we do this then, our imagination won’t be so prone to drift off into other realms that may or may not be true. Perhaps then we won’t be so skittish when black cats that run in front of us. Maybe then, when the raven caws we won’t be saying, “Nevermore.”
Sometimes as we know, the enemy comes as an angel of light masquerading in any form that might mislead us. Don’t fall for those schemes and devices of his that may appear at first to be true. See through the mist and smoke, and look beyond it, and then everything will appear bright again.
The darkness has never understood the light; all it can do is to try and copy or warp the light. Nothing is original with him, it is all smoke and mirrors.

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?
