“He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor,” Proverbs 14:31.
“Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause,” Exodus 23:1-3.
“What can be said about a nation?
What can be said about a land that has strayed so far from Me?
What can be said about a people who fight and pick at every morsel and dispute over the smallest of things?
For many of you have forsaken the poor; you lift up the privileged ones instead. Your land is divided over so many things. And yet your land was founded about finding a place where all could live in safety.
But now greed and selfishness has forged its way among you.
You will be thrown into a tailspin in the coming weeks; and then the weeks following this event, will begin to usher you into the very last of days. For you will be held accountable for everything that you have done, oh land.”

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?
